I was going through a change...or a change was going through me.

So, it's been a while. Things have been crazy. 
Nate and I are in the midst of a new adventure...parenthood. It's exciting and mind boggling and overwhelming. All at the same time. I'm about 17 weeks along and we go in to get our first real peek at our little guy/girl next Tuesday. And we'll finally find out if it's a little boy or a girl so I can stop calling it "it". 
It has been pretty interesting to watch my body change. My hip bones have pretty much disappeared and I definitely have a little bump going on. I'm over the first trimester blahness, which pretty much means I'm back to eating pretty much like I was before and I can make it through the day without a nap. Aside from backaches and headaches, I feel great. And I've never been more comfortable in my own skin (especially now that my skin is behaving--I hate you hormones). I'm sure as I get bigger I'll start to feel less attractive, but I feel pretty freaking fantastic right now. 

Anyway, big changes are coming our way, but we are really looking forward to it all. It has been and will continue to be a crazy ride. But there's no one I'd rather go through all of this with. I don't know when we grew up and decided we'd be suitable parents, but here we are. Nate will be an awesome dad...I can't wait for all of the things the three of us will do together. 

I'll try to get better about posting here, at least for my own sanity. I'll try to keep it from being all baby all the time though. With all the lazing around I'm doing, I should still have lots to say about what I'm reading and watching. Speaking of watching, I saw the latest Harry Potter installment and LOVED it. Also looking forward to The Voyage of the Dawn Treader in December...gotta love some Chronicles of Narnia. 

Ok, the end.

Lost Season 6 is out on DVD tomorrow! Can not wait!
I deleted season 6 off of my DVR last was a pretty emotional experience.
I can't wait to start a rewatch. It'll be great to watch it all back to back. It will be hard to watch the opening scene of season 1, knowing how it all ends. Ah, lots of tears to come!

Big sigh

I finished reading The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud about a month and a half ago. I really, really enjoyed it, but I have a hard time writing in detail about something I read that long ago. But I did really like it. I've realized lately that I have a huge fear of death. Not necessarily my death, but that of someone I love. Anyway, this book dealt heavily with death. It made me remember though that just because someone's not here anymore, doesn't mean they're not "here". Which I do believe in, very much so. But read the book, don't go see that piece of crap disguised as a movie.

I'm almost done with Eat, Pray, Love. This book is divided up in to 3 different mini books. Italy (Eat), India (Pray), and Indonesia - Bali, specifically (Love).
The whole book is about this woman, Liz, and how she falls apart and finds herself again. She goes through a divorce (which was made all the more difficult by her husband who pretty much refused to divorce her) and then realizes that she pretty much has no idea who she is. So she goes on a 9 month journey to find herself. She spends 3 months in Italy eating everything in sight (this part I particularly enjoyed!), 3 months in India studying and meditating at her guru's Ashram in India (this part of the book was interesting, but not very exciting) and then  3 months in Bali learning how to love again. Sounds like a cliche chick lit book, but I like so far the adventure she went on to find herself. She actually did learn how to be comfortable in her own skin, knowing full well that she could never love someone else if she didn't first love herself.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing the movie...but mostly because James Franco is in it. : )

I still need to start The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (by the way, I was not a fan of the Swedish version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) and I need to download the newest Sookie Stackhouse book. I also want to read Never Let Me Go before the movie comes out; I've heard great things about it.

Nate is in Orlando until Wednesday night, and I feel like crap. So at 4:52 in the afternoon, I think I'll go crawl in bed and do some reading.

Oh, also, is it sad that we can tell a huge difference between 104 degree and 98 degree weather?

Currently trying to decide how bad I want a grilled turkey and cheese.

Bad enough to get up to make one? Possibly.
I'd be really tempted if I hadn't used all of the tomato last night.
But I do have some Brie...

Hi Blog.

I promise I haven't forgotten about you. I've just been very busy reading lots and lots of books you see.

It's a little bit sad that I cannot find the words to describe how excited I am for this movie to come out! I'm a bit bummed that I have to wait 8 months for the second half of it, but oh well.

I'm also excited to see this on Thursday with some of my favorite ladies.

Moving on.

I started reading The Man Who Ate the 747 by Ben Sherwood the other day. I'm having a hard time getting in to it, but I'm forcing myself to read it before I read The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud. So, it will eventually get read. Because I really want to read Charlie St. Cloud.

It is with mixed feelings that I announce that the majority of my hair and I will be parting ways on Wednesday. It is just getting a little too difficult to maintain this mess. I'll put up some before and after pictures on my Facebook.

That's all.
