high five for insta-friday

today im linking up with lauren, jeanette, and rachel to share my favorite little things from this week that make my heart smile.

saturday morning cuddle session with these two.

pulling off a surprise birthday dinner for my mom.

receiving orders from etsy.  they always feel like a present even if you bought something for someone else.

final touches to prepare for mister.

today is my last day of work until january 2013.  i know im not about to go on a luxurious vacation or anything but im excited about the thought of being home for the next 8 weeks with my little guy.  i plan on making it as vacation like as possible :)

38 week pregnancy update

happy november!!!!!
husband and i spent last saturday night at home giggling and being silly. 
i thought it was only appropriate that mister join in on the giggles.
  • 38 weeks = 9.5 months
  • expected birthday: november 7, 2012 ... aka 6 more days :)
  • movement:  i still feel his head under my left ribs.  we go for our doctors appointment this afternoon, so they will be able to confirm his position.  
  • my movement/comfort:  my stomach is really hard these days.  it doesnt really give which makes getting up and down rather difficult.  for the most part im sleeping well thanks to my tylenol pm.  i still wake up at least once, maybe twice, a night to use the bathroom and flip over.  
  • energy level:  about the same as it was last week.  im tired a lot so i rest a lot but i also have short burst of energy that helps me to get things done.  
  • belly button:  in but completely flattened out (see above picture)
  • stretch marks:  none
  • nursery:  i refuse to buy anything else for the walls.  this weekend i will get the changing table pad and baby tub.  these are the last two items on my list before mister gets here.  
  • other:  tomorrow i reach the 39 weeks mark.  it is very likely that i will not post a 39 week update, seeing how next thursday i will be a mom.  i plan on taking my laptop to the hospital in case i have time to kill but of course, i make no guarantees.  i will make sure to post a photo or ten to instagram (@mebenfield) and twitter (follow me here).

wanna see something funny?
here is a reminder of how the outfit above fit about 20 weeks ago.
