Getting Away...

Sorry I left you all hanging on Friday with our Great news!  We left for vacation on Sunday after church, and let me tell you...it is so nice to just get away!!

Eric surprised me with a trip to Cincinnati to celebrate our anniversary a little early.  It was so nice to spend time with my husband, and talk about stuff other than what cute things Molly did that day, and I can't believe she did that, what was she thinking would happen.  Well, we did talk about Miss Molly, but it was so nice to eat our meals in peace, take our time, and not have to share our food!  Aww...thanks to my wonderful MIL for watching her! 

Yesterday we went to the Brewers/Reds game at Great American Ball Park.  It was fun and rainy!  We sat in the rain for half of the game and the other half was really muggy, but it was fun.  We drank pop and ate a lot of peanuts!  I love baseball games, and seeing some of the crazy fans!  On Monday night we ate at The Montgomery Inn, yumm!!  They are known for their award winning ribs!  It was a favorite of ours while we lived there and we still love going back there.  We also at at Skyline...yumm again!!  We bummed around, shopped a little, visited with some friends, and overall just relaxed! 

The rest of the week we plan on relaxing, garage sale-ing (well me, not so much Eric), golf (Eric, not me!), and just visit with family and watch my dad get re-married on Sunday.  Eric is performing the wedding for them.  I got a new dress yesterday and I am actually really excited about it.  While in Cincinnati, I really bumped out!  Maybe it was all the food!  But now my belly is really round and hard.  With Molly, I was pudgy until about 5 months or so, then bumped.  But not with this one!  Which the doctor told me I had a slight disadvantage since my body was not back to normal after the miscarriage in January.  Everything was not back in its place is what he told me.  Not sure if that is a good thing of a bad thing, ha!  I am learning to love my new body, bump, pudge and all!  It's really hard being a woman and gaining weight.  Even though during pregnancy you are "allowed" to gain weight, it's still hard to see the numbers go up on the scale.  Anyone else out there feel this way, or is it my hormones? 

Needless to say I am enjoying being away from Milwaukee for a week.  Even though we have a ton of work to do at the house, packing, you name it, it's nice to take a break, set my default message on my email at work, and just enjoy my family!

So are you still in Cincy?? If so, when are you going back? My parents and my sister are coming down this Sat and if you're around we'd love to meet up with you! (email me or text me or something!)

Glad you are able to get away and have some fun with Eric!!

And yeah, it's crazy how quick you can pudge out when it's not the first time around!

I totally understand the weight thing. I know its ok but still the closer I come to my husbands weight the more I cringe! : )

YAY for a getaway!

I am COMPLETELY with you on the weight gain! I despise looking at the scales these days! And if my hubby's told me once, he's told me a million times "You're gaining weight because you're carrying our BABY!" It's just hard to be totally okay with it! But I always remember what a blessing it is and how blessed we are! That usually outweighs the vain-I-hate-being-BIG issue!!!

Totally feel you on the weight gain thing! I felt the same way and now that I'm not pregnant, I still feel lousy looking at the after baby sag! :( Just try to relax, eat right and enjoy this precious life growing inside of you!

Glad you had a good vaca! I would love one of those right about now!

Love ya and I can't wait to see a belly pic! :)

How nice to have a little get away with your husband. Since Bella was born, we haven't done that - so 5 years now!
