What We've Been Up To

Thanks for the encouraging comments on my I have no friends post...and for not making me feel like a total L7 weenie.  Anyway, here's a little snippet of what we've been up to lately:
The hubs and I celebrated 8 years of marriage by going out to dinner and seeing Oz in 3D.  I know a lot of people are good about dating their spouse...we are not those kinds of people.  So it was nice to get out and again reminds me that we need to do it more often.  (A lot of people said they hated the movie, but I really liked it.  Maybe that's because I don't get out much, but it was visually stunning and I was thoroughly entertained).
We have been blending like mad.  How did I only just start making smoothies for my kids?  My 2 year old is my picky eater when it comes to fruits and veggies so this has been perfect.  He drinks these things right up--and sometimes they have spinach in them.  HA!  Now I just need a fancy Blend Tec.  Our favorite recipe is to just dump in a bunch of stuff--usually about a cup of organic plain yogurt, a handful of strawberries, a banana or 2 and then top the blender off with either frozen raspberries or blueberries.  And now and then I add some spinach.  You can't even taste it.
My sweet sis in law doing my toes...because I can't reach.
34 weeks along (AAH!) and I swear I am DONE.  I feel like I am days away from delivering and yet I still have 6 weeks. How we women do this is beyond me.  It is just so uncomfortable.  The other day my maternity pants were curling and folding down off of my belly so much that I came home, ripped them off,  and started bawling because I just wanted to wear pants like a normal person.  I know...dramatic.  But I think it's safe to say it's yoga pants from here on out--so don't judge me if you see me. :)
We had a visit last month from my brother and his wife.  They were in town from Hawaii for a wedding, and it was sooo good to see them.  My brother had just gotten back a few months prior from his year long stint in Afghanistan.  It was a great week of family (and that means tons of games! Yes!) and fun.
We finally upgraded our entertainment center.  After going back and forth about whether to refinish, completely build new, or buy new we opted for the easiest option and bought new.  The TV cost us practically nothing (we had saved gifts cards for over a year), so we justified the purchase.  Also it is pretty massive and was exactly what we wanted so all in all, I am in love with it.  And the 60" TV makes the hubs happy. Here it is:
A pic of my munchkins just for fun.
Happy weekend!  And here's to the next month going by wicked fast.
