Thank You

...to everyone who said kind, supportive, and helpful things in the comments to my last post. It really did help and gave me lots to think about. I'm lucky to have so many people care about me and The Nugget.

Those people close to me know that when I get overwhelmed, it tends to all boil over at once. It's just the way I process that kind of stress. To say I had a bad day is kind of an understatement. But, I woke up the next day feeling better and with a clearer mind. All of these things are a work in progress for me, and KG and I just need to continue to breathe and make our way through decisions, one by one.


So, on a happier note: We are heading down to see some friends in New Jersey this weekend, and spend time on the shore. If you have never been to south Jersey, don't judge. It is clean and beautiful, far from the stigma of that MTV crap. It will be wonderful to get away and spend time with people we love dearly.

And, here's the 15 week pic we took after we got home from our anniversary dinner the other night. If you live in the Boston area and haven't been to Hungry Mother (oh, the irony) in Cambridge, we highly recommend it.

  1. Great pic! I think you said it best when you said just take each thing one by one. Thats really all you can do.

  2. I really love your dress, of course green is my favorite color!

    My husband used to live in Boston and he wants to take to Maine but wants to also stop by New Jersey somewhere. He agrees that MTV and Jersey shore gave it a bad name and there are some really beautiful places.

  6. Such a cute bump!! And I love your dress. :)

    I'm glad you are feeling better. I think we process things in the same way. I'm feeling the stress now and need a breaking point...or a nap...and a day with nothing to do...and frozen yogurt.

  9. You look fabulous! Is that a dress you already owned, or have you done some shopping?

    I'm glad you're feeling better. You're right. Taking it once step at a time is important.

    Have fun on the (south) Jersey shore! (I've been there. It is very nice. And the water is so much warmer than up here in MA!)

  13. So so glad you are feeling better. It's practically impossible to get through this if you try and think of EVERYTHING between now and birth. Just way too much. One day, one week, one milestone at a time.

    You can do this :) Have a blast on the shore this weekend!
