Hey All!

Thanks for the well-wishes and for bearing with my absence. I've been busy, but not an interesting type of busy. You probably already read from SP that they laid off someone from our department. Apart from that it's been work as usual. Sid and I have been sick all weekend. He's on day two of his fever. I want to go to New York next weekend. My great-grandmother's niece passed away and I think it would be a perfect opportunity to meet a whole line of family I've never known. I'm reading Chele's book, Raymond's Daughters. I don't know if it's cause I'm pregnant or if the writing is just that good :) but I've found myself almost moved to tears a couple of times so far. One of my fave shows right now is America's Next Top Model. Last Friday I found myself defending the women of our department to the men, swearing that we look just as good as those girls on ANTM. We do! I also told the guy who just married that we were the best looking women at the reception. Hmm, maybe I shouldn't have said that? His reply was something about me being confident but he seemed to take it well enough. Oh well. What can I say. I'm not taking it back now. Speaking of pictures, in a few months I'm going to get some pregnancy pictures taken. One of my co-workers is a photographer and he takes awesome pictures. Anyway, I'm starving now. Gotta go feed the babies! Later.

I'm hooked on ANTM too. I hate that I am because Tyra really gets on my nerves, but it's hard not to get caught up. lol.

Congrats again! And I hope Sid is feeling better soon

SP said...

Poor you and Sid. By the way, don't breath on me. ;o)

You should go and meet your family. It'll be good.

It's not your hormones, Chele's book is really good.

Don't worry about telling AB we were the best looking ones there. BB said the same thing the day after the wedding!

Girl, you are too cute. I would say that pregnancy agrees with you. I enjoyed reading your post. It sounds as though you are really upbeat. God Bless

We did have some hot looking women at the wedding. We had indian, black, latina, asian persuasion, white, and they all looked beautiful. Except for the trailer trash, Ross clearance rack dress wearing, uncouth, wedding cake stealing one.

Pregnancy pictures? Not a-la Demi Moore (I hope).

Thanks and enjoy the book.

@Mocha Girl: Tyra gets on your nerves too?! I thought it was just me! lol Something about her....

@SP: How are you feeling today? Not getting sick, are you?

@Ms Gig: It's easy to be upbeat when you're excited.

@BdaB: Oh, you're bad.

@Chele: Demi Moore was my inspiration for the pictures actually. I don't think I'd have the courage to do any in her 'style' though.

i was just talking to someone about the whole tyra thing. i'm not irritated by her most of the time, but he pointed out to me that tyra gets into that 'falsghetto' thing and that does irritate me.

I don't think there is any photographic evidence of my first pregnancy. I did take some pics during the second one. No nekkid ones, though.

Stunner said...

Good to hear from you. Hurry with those pics!

I never really got to see you pregnant with Sidney, so it will be nice to see really good photo's of you pregnant with her ;-)

I love ANTM and I agree with Mocha_grl Tyra gets on my nerve. I can watch ANTM but I can't watch her talk show, go figure.

being overworked is no excuse for not posting. :-)

Top Model is falling a little short this cycle. I'm sorta losing interest.
