Fantastic Weekend!

I had such a great weekend! First of all, the Breast Cancer 3-Day was this weekend. I didn't participate, but every year, they walk right through Ocean Beach. Ryan and I love spotting them! Yesterday, I was down on Newport Ave. picking up some breakfast burritos when they flooded the streets. 3,800 walkers raised $9.5 million! They are so inspirational!

Saturday evening, Ryan and I were invited to a bar-b-que at a friend's house to which we had never been invited before. I didn't think much of it at first, just a nice pre-holiday party to relax, enjoy ourselves, and meet new friends. It seemed as if Ryan and I were the only couple there without children (yet)! Toward the end of the evening, one of our friends told us now that we're having a baby, we can "join the club" and hang out with all of their new parent friends! Kinda funny, but we had a great time!
To continue my lovely weekend, I went to a prenatal pilates class this morning right on the bay. The weather was perfect, and I had a great time exercising with other moms-to-be with our focus on our bellies!
I also had to get my car smog checked today. I was nervous, but I passed! Phew! You know how much of a relief that is! I thought that would be the highlight of the weekend, but then the Chargers SLAUGHTERED the Broncos!! They made fools of them in their own home!! And as if THAT wasn't enough to top off my fabulous weekend...
My beautiful friend, Jaime, gave birth to her baby girl!!! I was kind of hoping she'd be born on my birthday, but that's ok. She's here in time for Thanksgiving and her brother's second birthday! I just can't stop smiling about the new arrival! Hopefully I'll get a chance to go meet her the first weekend of December (along with baby Aiden, who I STILL haven't met!!)

21 Week Bump

I am already at 21 weeks! I can't believe I'm halfway there! My bump is getting bigger by the day, although this picture looks bigger to me than in real life. Ryan's out of town, so I took this using the automatic timer on the camera. Not the best picture, but it'll do. I wanted to take the picture today, since I finally got my hair done! I love being blond again!!

On another note, I started reading a book called Diary of a Mad Mom-to-Be. It's cute and an easy read. I am thinking of joining a maternity book club, and this was the first book choice. The best part about this book is that the main character's due date is March 29, the day after mine! So the timing of all her major events coincides with mine! Also, she just turned 32, so she is definitely a character with whom I can relate! It's a fun read, especially if you're pregnant!

Wonderful, Amazing Day

This morning, Ryan, Laura (my mom-in-law), and I headed out to our 20 week ultrasound! It was such an exciting, amazing experience! Our little one was totally showing off for her daddy. She was kicking, playing patty-cake, and even did that little grabbing-at-you wave that little ones do!! I am so glad Ryan finally got to "meet" our daughter! The ultrasound tech gave us 12 pictures!! Here are some of my favorites:

I love this one! It's my favorite! Her profile is just perfect!

Her face, still looking very skeleton-esque

Her long, beautiful legs!

At one point, we saw our little one move very quickly on the screen, and I was able to feel her movement at the same time! It was such a magical moment! We're halfway through, and I just can't wait to meet her!!
