Happy (Late) Thanksgiving!

Sunday, Stu took me for a prenatal massage and it was divine! Although, I'm sure when the therapist rubbed my belly, lil Momo was like, "Hey! Who are you?!?! I don't know you!" Stu also surprised me when we were paying and leaving afterwards. He paid for and scheduled another massage for me in December! Yay! My hubby is awesome! He even mentioned on the way home that he was thinking about doing a postnatal massage for me as well.

My baby shower is coming up in December as well and I can't wait to see everyone. Especially my "out of town" friends who don't live in the valley since I hardly or never get to see them.

Speaking of the baby...

32 Weeks Pregnant
Here's our little bundle at 32 weeks now. It's getting closer!!! Just this morning, Stu and I were laying in bed, talking about her sleeping in, since she wasn't moving yet. Stu said, "She's still full from Thanksgiving yesterday." That made me think of her little belly and I said, "Aw, I can't wait 'til she comes out and I can see her cute little Buddah belly! All babies have a little Buddah belly."

Momo's Christmas Stocking
I'm knitting a Christmas stocking for the baby too. I've ripped it out, I think, at least twice. I think I've settled on freestyling it without a pattern and doing an afterthought heel.

I'll also being doing other super-secret-squirrel projects for others for christmas as well.

Pumpkin Spice Mini Cupcakes w/ Cream Cheese Icing
I made these little pumpkin spice mini cupcakes w/ cream cheese icing with the leftovers from the pumpkin roll I made for Thanksgiving dinner at my mom and dad's. I have to say, they turned out pretty damn good for my winging it and not being very knowledgable in the science of baking!

So, yeah, I made my traditional pumpkin roll, Stu made his popular loaded baked potato salad (OMG, so yum!), my sister, Brandi, made green bean casserole and Ryn made "green gook" pistachio pudding salad and helped my mom with everything else. It was an awesome dinner and I'm thankful for everyone's contribution!

I'm thankful for so much in my life... the list is huge. But, to keep it short and sweet, I'll just say that I'm thankful for all the people in my life-- Family, friends, co-workers and you, readers to my blog... and so much more!

I hope you all had a Happy Food Day-- er, Thanksgiving and that your day was filled with way too much food, joy and good company. I know mine was!

Until next time! ♥

You're right. I can't believe that she's almost ready to come out and meets us... It's so exciting and scary at the same time! LOL
