Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

My girlfriends and I are planning a weekend trip to Las Vegas later this month.

We are so excited as last year's trip was a blast.

There will be 5 of us. Jonesy and KD are leaving their 6 kids at home (3 each) and they are the ones who are most looking forward to the much needed getaway.

We've already booked a show and are planning on relaxing, gambling, shopping, eating all weekend. AA said no sleep for us all weekend, which we have done on some trips before especially when we are winning at the crap table. Pre pregnancy I would've been up all night with them. But nowadays, my bedtime has been more like 9:00pm. I feel like a fuddy duddy.

I'm excited, I love girl bonding trips! :)

Have a greak weekend!

Question of the day: What is the longest you've ever gone without sleeping? (My longest was 30 hours)

Spice of Life

Thank you to all your baby name suggestions! :) There were quite a lot of good ones!

We think we have decided on a boy/girl name. :) It shall remain under wraps for the time being.

Spent the weekend watching DH play softball on Saturday. He made an awesome tumbling catch in the 6th inning. It turned out to be the game saving catch as it prevented runs from scoring and allowed the team to tie the game in the next inning and then win it in the last inning. I wish I had a videotape of his catch as it was the best catch I've seen him do. Worthy of the highlight/gem of the day video footage on ESPN.... :)

On Sunday, my girlfriends and I met for breakfast at Jones' house. We ended up hanging out at their house for the whole day. We ate, gossiped, her and Kim's kids played while the girls and I played pool. DH stopped by in the late morning. I had invited him to come along but he had initially declined. So I was surprised he stopeed by and hung out at Jones' house. He was content after we fed him and he was able to watch football the whole afternoon. (His fantasy football league started that week). While he hung out with Jones' hubby, the girls and I gossiped and planned our LV trip coming up in a few weeks.

On Friday, we had our monthly check up with the doctor. We heard the heart beat and it was a strong heart beat around 150 beats/min. Per old wives tale.... that range means it will be a boy. If the beats were higher around 155-160, it would indicate a girl. At our last appt, the heartbeats were close to 160. Hmmmm....

Question of the day: If you had to describe your as a spice, what would you be and why?
