Gobble Gobble!

I am seriously so happy for Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving vacay right now. I need a break- I’m sure you need a break! If only this break could fall right into my 2-week Christmas break, I would be on a roll.

Anywho, I hope everyone’s weekend was fantastic. My sister-in-law and I decided to brave the cold and the Twi-hard tweens for a little New Moon action Friday night; as a side note, thank you God for putting Robby P on this earth and sharing his gorgeous face and English bum for all to see. We arrived at the movie theater promptly at 6:30 (show did not start until 7:30), and were able to get great seats in a not-so-packed theater (shocker!). Now let me just say I am Team Edward all the way, but little Taylor Laughtner is rocking the abs and tan tummy, and I can see why there are so many Team Jacob fans. I promise to not go all Twilight/New Moon crazy in today’s entry, because I do realize that not everyone is a fan, but I really enjoyed the movie. Looking forward to Eclipse in June 2010- what what!

In continuing with the movie tradition this weekend, my mom and I went to see “The Christmas Carol” yesterday. (Obviously when your hubby leaves town you watch A LOT of movies). Folks, it was great! They gave us the coolest little 3-D glasses to watch the movie in, and I swear, I felt like I was right there with Tiny Tim when he exclaimed “God Bless us, everyone!” (Tear). This is definitely one of my favorites Christmas stories ever, and I definitely suggest this movie if you’re a sucker for Christmas tales like me.

Tomorrow my hubby comes home, and I know I will be temped to do the whole run/jump into his arms thing, but I really don’t want to cause him to break something or get a concussion from being knocked out by a huge pregnant lady. I am so excited to see him! My lovely work friend, Pam, is coming to our house Friday morning to take maternity pictures of us, and Adam has no idea. Rut-roh. He just has no idea what I have in store for him this week. Speaking of pictures, what colors are most flattering on you when you are not only getting professional pictures made, but you're just….. kind’ve……big?? I need some ideas.

Hoping Wednesday at noon gets here fast- I am so running out of here like a high school kid being released for summer break.

The busy bee gets the honey, right??

The honey being my hubby, of course. I miss my husband and am ready for him to come home! Can Tuesday not get here any faster??

Speaking of busy bees, I have been up to my ears in work, appointments, and everything else under the sun all week! I actually have eaten lunch at my desk every day since Monday, because I have had to use my lunch hour for other things besides eating. Let’s see: I opened a savings account for Adam and I (been on the must-do list for almost a year now), and worked until 11:30 Tuesday night meeting with prospective students (too late for a pregnant lady for sho), went to see a dermatologist about a cyst on my underarm Wednesday, which I’m getting removed tomorrow……eeeekkkkk! And finally, today, my lunch hour will consist of a much-needed hair appointment at a salon in Macon which my bestie, Natalie, highly recommended. The name is William Alexander Salon and I am pumped. Nothing like a new hair-do to give me some spice, especially when my belly is starting to look like the late Willie B’s belly from the Atlanta Zoo:

RIP Willie B

To go back to the cyst removal tomorrow, I am nervous. Not nervous in that I am scared of the pain (the area will be numbed, and hello!!! I am going to have to deliver a child in 4 months- much harder than a simple incision); more nervous in that I want my baby boy to be okay. The doctor that is performing the incision has reassured me that baby boy will not be affected; he will only be numbing that area. He even had his nurse contact my OB Gyn to confirm that this procedure was okay, and he got the go-ahead from him. So why am I still scared?? I dunno. I promise to be a brave girl tomorrow.

NEW MOON tomorrow!!! Woop Woop!! Nothing like spending a couple of hours with Robby Patts to make this girl happy! I’m sure it’s going to be out of control.

Leavin' on a Jet Plane.........

My hubby left for job training in Chicago today. Tear. I honestly cried just a little when I kissed and hugged him bye at the airport this morning. He will only be gone a week, but I swear, we have never been away from each other this long before. My mom would laugh at me and say, “Hayley, get over it. If I have to live without your dad for a year, then you can live without Adam for a week.” I’m trying to remember that today as I blink back tears, and feel a little ache in my heart when I think he won’t be there when I get home. God, I’m such a cheese ball.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Our weekend was low-key and perfect. Saturday consisted of stopping by the dry-cleaners, shopping, and lunching. As a side note, does your dry cleaner question every little stain/mark on your clothes?? I SO felt like Jane Burns from The Sweetest Thing being questioned about the stain on my coat. Yes, the stain on my coat was from where Sophie puked after getting a shot at the Vet’s office last……year. Yep, I know that’s so nasty! I should have brought the coat in immediately, but it was the end of the winter months, and I completely forgot. Anyhow, after being asked by my dry cleaner “What this? This gross!” I told her that it happened last week. Needless to say, I felt a bit embarrassed walking out of the dry cleaner’s Saturday.

Yesterday consisted of more shopping. I stopped by Bed, Bath, and Body Works for some smell-good stuff, and by Charming Charlie. Has anyone heard of/been to a Charming Charlie before?? OMG- it’s out of control in there. Before I go into great detail, let me just say that this place is your one-stop shop for trendy jewelry, bags, clothes, and accessories. I purchased a turquoise earring and necklace set; a thin, gold strand necklace with flower accents and matching earrings; two pairs of sterling silver chandeliers; and a pair of cubic zirconium’s (fake, but oh so pretty). I paid $53, and considering all that I purchased I felt like it was a pretty good deal. Anyway, to get back to my point- this place is HUGE. I have never been to this place before, and felt overwhelmed and tired as soon as I walked in. With all of that being said, I took a deep breath and decided to take my time walking around the entire store. It took me at least 30 minutes to browse the store, and an extra 15 to grab the pieces I wanted and go. All in all, pretty good shopping experience. Will I go back? Definitely, but I will make sure I know exactly what I want before stepping in the door.

I’m so exhausted today. It will definitely be an early bedtime night for me tonight. This week is already so busy with work, appointments, and NEW MOON (I’m dying!). I’m thinking that a week will be over soon enough, and I’ll be seeing my hubby before I know it. Thank God for Thanksgiving holidays next week!

Best Saturday Ever

Sometimes I think my husband and I are old souls. I'm not saying that we're old, boring farts, but I can tell that we have grown up so much over the past 4 years that we have been together. The Saturday's and Sunday's spent laying in bed hung over from staying out too late/drinking too much at the bar are pretty much over, and you know, I don't miss it one bit. Honestly, those nights have been over for awhile now, and while they were great times, I am so happy where we are in our life right now. We still have incredible friends that we adore and spend a great amount of time with, and for that we are very fortunate. With all of this being said, I don't know if it's the Christmas music that is already playing on the radio, or that we have our first child on the way, or that my dad will be home in less than 3 weeks, or even the fact that Adam and I have spent the whole day just being together and enjoying each others company, but I just feel so blessed in more ways than I can count. I don't feel like I stop and say thank you enough for the blessings that are given to me, my family, and my friends every day, but I am doing so now.

That's all for now. Have a great night. ;)

I think my friend Ashley over at Kindredly has a great idea with the National Blog Posting Month/30 Posts 30 Day thing. I need some drive, folks! I feel like I am losing blog readers every day and it makes me oh so sad in my heart. Time to get back with the program! Although I have not been feeling the blog ambition, there has been a lot going on in the Mosely household. Let me fill you in………

Adam got a new job!!
Yea!!!!! He will be working as a Catastrophe Claim Representative for Allstate. We are so excited, and just very thankful. Adam has been on the job hunt for quite awhile now, and has been pursuing this exact job since June. We found out earlier this week that he got it, and have had perma-grins for a week now. Although this is a wonderful job, there are some cons; the biggest con being the fact that he will be traveling a lot. After talking it over numerous times, we decided that although it will be hard at times, it is the best thing we can do for our family (in particular, the little man in my belly). Adam starts training next week and could not be more excited. I’m hoping and praying this will be a great move for us. I guess we’ll see………

I decided on my nursery theme this weekend. Here's a picture:

The theme is “Shooting Stars” and it’s from Pottery Barn. I don’t know if it’s the blue/yellow combination, or the precious baby that won me over, but I love it! We are slowly getting furniture moved out of our spare bedroom, and making room for baby Aaron. I am in complete nesting mode, annoyingly so in fact. I just figure that while I’m feeling really good, I want to get these big things taken care of. I found a white crib at JCPenny that I adore, and am in the process of looking for a changing table. If you have any tips/ideas on baby furniture/baby stuff please share. While I am so excited and so in love with my baby boy, I feel so clueless about what to do next! As a side note, I think I felt my first real kick last night. As a matter of fact, it felt like 3 little kicks! Adam and I had just finished dinner, and I laid down on my back to get some good baby action. Aaron usually goes wild after I have eaten, and I love to feel him move around. Anyway, I laid down and felt him moving around, and then the next thing I know I felt 2 kicks (at least I could have sworn they were kicks) right at the bottom of my stomach. Another reason why I think they were actual kicks is because he is in breech position at the moment, and that is exactly where his feet should be. Oh my goodness, best feeling in the world! I cannot wait to feel more of his kicks in the coming months.

In other big news, my dad will be leaving from Afghanistan in exactly 2 weeks to head home for his two-week leave! We have not seen him since May, and can barely contain our excitement. We are thinking he should be home by December 5th. Looking forward to spending some much-needed time with him and the family.

I’m off to start my weekend! Hope every one has a good one! I am going to try and stick with this daily blog posting thing- wish me luck!!

Update! Update!

It's been forever since I last blogged. What is up with this?? Am I the only one that is just not feeling it these days?? I really, really want to blog every day and be witty, charming, and hilarious, but I can't get back into the rhythm. I need some drive. Any ideas??

The most important news to date is that I'm having a BOY!! I am literally over the moon. Adam, my mom, his mom, and I went for my ultrasound last Wednesday to find out the big news. Adam and I were both so excited we could hardly function the days before. After being called back to the little room that changes your life, we all piled in and awaited to find out what was in this belly. It seemed like it took the nurse forever to do my measurements, but she finally turned the screen around so she could show me some pictures. At that point she asked me what I thought I was having. I said "girl" without hesitation, because if you know me, it would seem that I was born to have a baby girl. The nurse smiled, and said "nope, it's a boy." I started crying, Adam started crying, the grandmother's started crying, it was perfect. You see, I wanted a boy all along. I have always wanted a boy ever since I could remember. Boy's love their mommy's. I am madly in love. Here's his profile picture:
Is it just me, or does he have the cutest nose ever?? I am in love with my little man.

I am about to go baby crazy!! Let the fun begin!

Off to call the doc. I am fighting a cold: sore throat, runny nose and all, and I need something to take other than Tylenol. Wish me luck........
