Presidents' Day Hostess + 28 week Update

Last month, I was one of the hostesses for our monthly DAR meeting. Since it was the Saturday after Presidents' Day, we chose to use that as our theme. I think our table came out nicely!

We made sure to include a couple of cherry desserts to honor George Washington. Remember "Washington would not tell a lie when asked if he cut down the cherry tree." ;) Our desserts were mini cherry pies and chocolate covered cherries. 
For my bumpdate, I took a bathroom pic before my meeting. ha!
**I think this is the week where my bump started to pop out for real**

how far along: 28 Weeks

size of baby: eggplant

gender: female

belly button in/out: out

weight gain: 14-15 lbs

maternity clothes: right now still trying to wear as many of my non-maternity tops as possible like this gap tee. however, they are starting to get too short as my bump is growing. thinking i need to get a few classic tops to hold me over til the baby comes. 

stretch marks: not yet *fingers crossed*

rings: on :)

nursery: bedding purchased.

5 on Friday

I'm so glad they brought 5 on Friday back. I love being able to do a quick recap of my thoughts for the week. And I could totally be late to the game, as I didn't post much for the 1st/2nd trimester, but I'm back and ready to jump right in. :)

1. We made it to 30 Weeks. Yay!
I've been kind of slack on the updates. Technically, I'm 30 weeks. I'm going to catch up this week. I can't believe we're already this far. It seems like time is flying by, and I can't believe we only have 8-10 weeks to go!

2. My birfday! 
This picture is from my birthday when I thought turning 28 was actually old! I turned 35 yesterday. I can't believe I was 28 when I started this blog. I still feel like I'm 25, but alas the frown lines on my forehead and my old lady hands tell a different story. ha!

3. Best Birthday Present 
We had snow, sleet, and ice yesterday. I got a **snow** day for my birthday. I had the day off, and luckily, the county was closed, so I got to spend the day with my husband and Puggy as well. This morning we had a record low, and well, the side roads are still nasty, so a second snow day to me. Getting snow days are just the best, and to have them on your birthday is like icing on the cake!

4. Pugggggggggyyyyyyyy!
Puggy got a bath yesterday, and she's nice and fluffy. She thinks I've neglected in showing y'all a new pic of her. We have one of these heat dish warmers we got from Costco which was on the floor, and she was loving it! She would just curl up and get comfy and snooooze! ZzzZzzZZzzzs.

5. Downton Abbey Season 5 finale
My, oh my! Where do I start?!?!?!? #1 I'm so glad they decided not to end it this season. I think the story lines are recovering from the Mary/Matthew tragedy, and it really could go on from here. #2 This has been my FAVE episode thus far. You can really see how some of the characters have grown such as Edith and Tom. I won't write much about it just in case some still haven't caught up. But hurry up because this episode was AH-mazing!
