This is all I've got today!
The only thing I have today is humor so go with it!

Yes, I know. Posting a picture of MYSELF is kind of vain, weird and freaky BUT this is ONLY for my (mom) hair stylist. She gave me bangs. Bangs I NEVER wear. Bangs I work hard to fix only to pull up in hopes of looking like the picture below! Mom, bangs on my pregnant face sure brings out the chubby. The nose is beginning to spread! ugh! This is why I pull them back! :)

YES, THIS is the hair I love! Heidi Klum's! Aka-SUPER MODEL!

See! All I can do is copy! And this picture of me in pink and brown is QUITE amazing! PEOPLE, this is a sweater and I live in DALLAS! Currently it is 50 degrees! Praise the Lord! This has totally brought me a tad bit closer to exiting my current FUNK! But now I head to the OB for a checkup where I will try to pee in a cup WITH my two children watching. Then I will make my way to the scale where I will take my shoes off of course, to find out if I have gained ten pounds AGAIN!!!!!!!! Because I know these shoes I am wearing today weigh at least ten pounds! Kate told me to pack the kitchen if I need to and even the kitchen sink in order to keep my children under control in the OB's office! Oh yes, everyone will think they are so cute but I will be bribing the heck out of them just to get out of there in one piece! Please be on time Dr. Neal! Please don't be delivering a baby upstairs! I need you today! I need you to tell me my weight is great. I need you to tell me I am doing great and that I even look great! PLEASE!

Thank you Itunes! You have made my last few insane days a little more enjoyable. I've got my cd for the ride to the doctor ready to go. Song #1? I Can See Clearly Now by Johnny Nash followed by Elvis Presley's A Little LEss Conversation (the remix), then some Miranda Lambert (a Texas gal), some George Strait, Paul Simon, Sara Evans, Chasing Cars, Creedence Clearwater Revival-aka CCR, The Wreckers and sooooooo much more!! This cd ROCKS! You would ALL be so jealous, especially YOU Janna! (Janna you need this CD for the twins. They would love it! You would feel lots of dancing in your belly by those two little girls! Austin, here I come! I will hand deliver it!)

Okay, so thanks for listening to my insanity! Thank you Kate for rolling out the red carpet! I am walking on it, don't you worry!

Glad you came back in one piece.

I love the bangs too! You look beautiful either way.

Funny..I always took my shoes off too. You'll be so busy w/3 kids losing the weight won't be a problem.

Okay, the weight gain for the past month?? TWO POUNDS! I was scared! After gaining ten in one month, I was scared! The baby is measuring two weeks ahead but that's totally normal for me. I always measure big and my babies are always big so I am feeling good! I think I want things to slow down. I still need some sleep before this precious baby boy arrives!

And ladies, seriously! You have blessed me today with your comments. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Sunday night you can rest -- we will have your kids.

What a sweet mom!
Oh I mean to ask you ... what song by CCR did you have on your new cd? It's funny you mentioned them. I just downloaded the song Down By The River for my oldest to hear. It's got such a catchy tune and he is learning guitar and I thought that had an easy and fun few chords to learn. They all loved the song!
I am having problems with blogger. I can't even post a comment on your new post. Hmmm. Wonder if this one will post... Grrrr!

Kate, we have CCR's greatest hits so i put Bad Moon rising and who'll stop the rain.

I like the bangs! They are cute! You have the kind of face where you can have them or pull them back and look good. My face shape cannot do all that. And Chubby? Whatever girl!

I love your hair! Also, the baby shower that you put together, HOW BEAUTIFUL! You are so creative. You should think of doing something with your talent on decorating and your shower ideas. You ROCK! Love ya!
