Only two weeks left until the big anniversary party! I am really getting excited, as my parents seem clueless (perhaps they know, but if they do, they hide it well). Last Saturday we had only received about 40 for RSVP's, so I was a little disappointed -- but by the end of the weekend, we were up to 65, and now it is closer to 80, with a few more people we expect to come, it will probably be closer to 85. Yes!
So, next weekend I will make sure everything is in order for that - the only thing I think I want to do, that was not in our budget so it would purely be an expense for me, is to maybe get some bunches of balloons.
I feel like throughout this pregnancy I have been bombarded by the consistent whining of other preggos...to the point where I do not talk or socialize with those people. Also, I have been constantly reminded of "what could go wrong" (thank you medical people) and there have been many days where its extremely challenging to think positively.
But today, today I biked over four miles carrying my 40+ pound counterweight (Nathan plus trailer) and my 20+ pounds pregnancy weight. We didn't go fast, but we did it, and yes, I was tired! But I am excited to report that at 32 weeks I could still bike what I struggled to do years ago without a child and without being pregnant. small victory. yae me!
I finished my pieced borders a few minutes ago, so I had to share. It is still due another set of solid borders...but a tax return I have been waiting to review just hit the queue, so that is next:
I have to admit, I really don't like the checkerboard border. Good thing this was a mystery quilt!
