Life lately consists of traveling during the week and meeting up on the weekends. Mike just got a promotion (woot woot) so we are hoping that will lessen his travel in a few months.
I worked from Charlotte and Raleigh last week and felt like I worked from 7am until 10pm every single was a long week to say the least.
I did manage to meet my sis and John for dinner while in Raleigh. It was good to catch up and drool over their wine and beer.

After such a long week, we decided to have a low key Friday night.

Friday I made Skyline for dinner (a favorite from OH) and then we went to see Safe House. The movie was pretty good (similar to a "Bourne" movie), but it would have been much better if we weren't stuck in the 3rd row. I was not a happy camper.

Saturday we worked out, ran errands and just hung out around the house. That night we had some friends over for a "build your own" dinner party. We decided to do nachos this time and it was a success! I used the "shredded chicken" and "strawberry cake" recipes from Pinterest and they both turned out great. I now have half a strawberry cake in my fridge that no one is going to eat and I'm going to be forced to throw away (sorry, Ellen)!

After Sunday School, Mike packed his bags and headed out for work travels. I'm going to be spending Valentine's day with the Real Housewives of OC and feel pretty good about it.

In Tater news...
-I felt the baby kick this week, I think!!!! He isn't beating me up yet, but it certainly felt like a flutter/kick. I am trying to pay more attention to see if I keep feeling it or I'm really just gasy.
-I am now the proud owner of maternity jeans, and a few shirts. I will probably be wearing them in the next 2 weeks. My plan is to wear my pants until I can't button them, use the belly band then switch to maternity pants. We'll see how long this plan lasts.
-We have finally agreed on a BOY name...YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!! We find out the sex in a week and a half, so if Tater has a little "V" then we will have to go back to the drawing board.
-My boobs are HUGE and I'm not a fan. Let's hope these watermelons don't grow to their pre-surgery size or I might have a mental breakdown.

Hope everyone has a great week!

Truly I can't decide what to comment on first. 1. Shame on you for throwing food away.; 2. Did you do the shredded chicken with your kitchen aid mixer - is that what you are talking about? PLEASE tell me if it really works! 3. Please tell me the date of your gender reveal ultrasound! I will be so shocked if it's a girl!!!

Work it Dolly Parton!

Can't wait to hear the boy name on Feb 22nd. Yes I think it's a boy too!

(And I'm praying it is b/c otherwise you will go BROKE buying girl clothes! Ha!)
