bay to breakers.

Took a quick trip to see my sis this past weekend, with my Mom. We signed up for "bay to breakers" - all of us ended up walking it- but with this race, that seemed to be the point! 
Costumes, Costumes, Costumes!
if I hadn't been feeling so frumpy and squishy, I may have been more motivated to find a costume and plan ahead. shame on me!
 Mom drives me crazy with how early she insists on being at the airport (love you mom!) but when you go to the airport WITHOUT ANY FORM OF IDENTIFICATION, I can understand needing to be there incredibly early.
after a thorough search of her things, questioning, phone calls, etc - they let her through. 
Then in normal fashion- there was lots of food & fun (and not many pictures.. I slacked)
Pavi made the mistake of sending 3 texas women to pick out a new grill (he wanted a little, inexpensive, charcoal, tabletop grill)- quite a bit over budget, a suv taxi to get it home, and 4 hours later... Ash & Pavi were the proud owners of a great Weber grill- which resulted in an amazing dinner.
Once home-
My girl was all snuggles and happy to see me :)
see you soon sf!

mother's day.

"A mother is she who can take the place of all others, 
but whose place no one else can take"
(photo cred & design: my sister)

And then to this little bumble who made me a mom- love you. 
Can't believe I will be a mama to 2 soon!
happy mother's day to all those out there!

house update 1.

we've had slow, but steady, progress on the house.
first they leveled out our pad site- and had to bring in a ton of dirt
then did the form boards for the house
 
 next, the piers
 then they started on one (of the many) retaining walls
 hads LOVES going to the lot. between the dirt, machines, rocks, and the next door neighbor, Lily, she is in heaven. 
 then the trenches, plumbing, electrical, post tension etc- I don't know all the technical terms. 
 and today- they were pouring the foundation!
it's coming along! Tomorrow they are doing the pool and will start framing here shortly! Then it will start to look like a house

guess what peeps.


it's a boy!
due Oct 3, 2014

in order to wrap my head around a boy- I've been doing the only logical thing:
shopping!
the best news, and most important is that all looks great- he is perfect!
I'm gaining weight much faster (however, I was under the weight I was when I got pregnant with hads, guess I'm playing catch up) I'm trying to stay active, and go to the gym several times a week. It's my sanity.
Here are a few more cute shots taken by my sis-in-law the day we did the peeps photo.
current craving:
anything and everything.
first several weeks i could only stomach bagels and cream cheese
then there was a two week period of steak- 
then, anything to shock my taste buds (limon chips especially)
now, 18weeks, frozen grapes.
