. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Happy List

April 25, 2013

Happy List

dress: target   cardigan: old navy

 I can now wear maxi dresses and not be freezing.   Hallelujah!!  And I found this non-maternity dress on the clearance rack at Target for $6.

I passed my gestational diabetes test.  And the sugar overload drink, while not pleasant, wasn't as terrible as I had heard.  
My grandma got to come see my house this week.   I definitely never expected her 92 year old self to make it out here from California after not traveling for over 10 years.  


I didn't realize that 90210 started again after Christmas, when means I got to watch eight episodes in a row over the last two weeks, which makes my teen drama loving heart happy. 
I am not a big reader and can't even tell you the slim number of books I've ever purchased myself, but I bought this book today and am really excited to read it.  
Chris and I are going away tonight until Sunday to Wisconsin, the same place we stayed during our Fall trip. I can't wait for three days of relaxing and time together.  

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

You look great in this maxi! So cute! I didn't think the drink for diabetics was bad either, glad you and the baby are doing well :)

I have a theory that if you are having a boy.. you fail the gestational diabetes test... this is about 95% accurate... its not 100%.. some boys pass.. but alot of the people I know who have boys have failed the test..(not like you can "fail" but you know..)

Funny story...I had to take a glucose test, and the nurse made me think I was pregnant since she assumed I was. I was like, "Um...no. I'm hypoglycemic." Haha
