Survey says...

Today was our "big" ultrasound to find out the sex of the baby! Mom and Jenn were allowed to come too, as long as they were quiet. Like the three of us are ever rowdy!!! Stephen was definitely outnumbered in the ultrasound room, what with Mom, Jenn, the ultrasound tech, me, and the baby all being girls.

Did you catch that? That's right - the baby is no longer an IT! She's a SHE! She performed very nicely for everyone, doing some rolls, giving us a thumbs up, and just generally showing off. Here are my two favorite pictures from the ultrasound. One is a great profile picture, and the other is her giving us a thumbs up - saying, "Hey - it's really comfortable in here! I think I'll just hang out in here all winter where it's warm!" I think you can make them bigger by clicking on them. They look kind of small to me.



Everything about her looks perfect. She has all appendages (which would be scary if she didn't, because she did at the last ultrasound), she has a great heartbeat, and I promise, she has Tarheel feet!!



I mean, they aren't blue obviously, but they look just like the Tarheel foot! Stephen doesn't agree, but that's just because he's a dumb State fan. Anyway, everything looks right on point, so we are absolutely thrilled!! We definitely have one extra thing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving! And I will try to remember that next Thanksgiving when she is throwing her creamed turkey everywhere.

Saturday, mom proved her love to me by going with me to the mall in Fayetteville. We both really dislike shopping, so we are made for shopping together. We were in and out in about an hour and a half, and had gotten everything we went for. We got out right at lunch time, so mom had the brilliant idea of eating at Rockola, which I hadn't eaten at in so many years. Thanks to dad for treating us to lunch! It was absolutely delicious. I can't believe it had been so long since I had eaten at one, but their website says they only have five locations!? Whaaaa!? I'm going to have to take Stephen there sometime. He didn't believe me when I said they can compete with Fuddruckers, which may be hard to believe. I couldn't believe I said it, but it's true.

Anyway. Then we came back into town and I realized we should stop in our new Salvation Army thrift store because we were right next to it. Well, LUCKY WE DID!! Of course, mom and I are suckers for two things - a bargain, and books. We got eleven of the Christian suspense novels that we love so much! Then, as we were wandering around, making sure we hadn't missed anything, we spotted a Boppy! A real, live, Boppy!!! This is something I have kind of wanted, but certainly wouldn't have bought for myself. They're around $30-60 just for the breastfeeding ones, so I am thrilled at this great deal!! What a good Saturday!
