Yum and yawn

I just woke up from a very good nap. It makes up for yesterday's bust. Before that a friend came down for lunch and we swung by and picked Bryan up on the way. I haven't seen her in a while...actually at my shower in May but before that it was a long time too. Her husband who works near by was supposed to join us but couldn't at the last minute and it's been a really long time since we've seen him. The 4 of us used to work together, ahh good times. And good food. A big ol' juicy burger with rosemary fries. Which I just followed up post-nap with chocolate rice cakes. Man those things are good! The problem is I can't stop eating them.

Bryan was so cute at lunch today he brought me a present. He set the box down on the table which I opened to find a beautiful 3-stone diamond ring in a platinum setting with tiny round diamonds in the band. Alright it's fake, hehe. He had ordered it a while ago once my wedding bands didn't fit anymore but it just came in. It fits perfectly too, 2 sizes bigger than my real rings. He said he was doing it more for himself than for me, he couldn't stand me not wearing my rings. Like I get hit on everywhere we go. I think the 9 month pregnant stomach is a turn off to many...or my fat face, fat ass, fat hands, fat elbows....The waitress probably thought she saw the worst proposal in history...Bryan setting the box on the table and me opening it saying "Oh cool, thanks!" and putting it on. She was like "oh, oh my!" so we had to explain to her the dealio so she didn't think we were totally lame.

So good day all around!

That is sweet of him! I hated walking around hugely pregnant without my wedding band on. You've got a couple weeks, right?

AW BRYAN! I always tell everyone how sweet he is. I felt weirde without my rings too. My fingers still aren't back to normal yet. I didn't have that problem with Hailee though. For some reason I gained 60lbs but my rings still fit. Oddly enough.

Sounds like a good day!

Yeah, I think maybe the preggo belly might cramp your style a little. I stopped wearing my rings during my pregnancy because it caused a rash. I still can't wear them. Guess all those hormones made me develop a reaction to gold. So I've requested platinum, baby!

I had to take my rings off early (around 30 weeks), but I did manage to cram them back on my finger for my shower (32 weeks). And then my sister and I spent 20 minutes with soap and cold water trying to get them back off. Lesson learned!

Ha, I hated that but I only experienced that with Ry. I felt so stupif - nothing makes you feel like a big loser when you are hanging out with 2 kids and a guy who has a ring on and you don't. The looks I got! Soon enough you can put your originals back on but hey even if it is fake you still got a ring to wear!

My rings with my second child fit thank god, but they were a lil big to begin with so thats probably why, lol! Hate the swelling!
