Just wanted to pop in to say hello, and that I am still pregnant:) When my Doctor first gave me my due date, I knew that the actual chances of me delivering on that day (September 29th), were slim (around 5% to be exact:), so I would tell people that I was due at the end of September/beginning of October…I thought that Toly would come early in all honesty, even though I heard that first babies (boys especially) like to hang out in the womb a bit longer. Well I guess my instincts were wrong lol I’ll have to fine tune them next time around. :)I am 1 day past due, and looking forward to whatever day/time Mr. Ivanov decides to make his entrance into the world. I must say that it has been quite fun telling people today that my due date was yesterday…their eyes get all big, and worried as if my water will break any minute. :)
Did you guys know that yesterday was National Coffee day? I’m pretty sure that I was the last one to find out..It would have been so cool if Toly shared his birthday with such a holiday. ;) I wonder if he will love coffee as much as Andrey and I. It’s weird to think of our future boy drinking coffee, but as many random people in grocery stores have told me, they (their kids) go off to college in the blink of an eye.
Have you all had your pumpkin spice latte fix yet? My friend from work (Hi Dasha!), had this cool idea of waiting until a fun event/trip, to get her first cup…so I copied her and decided that I would wait until baby Toly gets here to celebrate. My hospital has a Starbucks right by it, so I’ll send Andrey out. :)
*Fun random fact: Did you guys know that Starbucks Pumpkin Spice syrup doesn’t even have pumpkin in it?
I found a bunch of delicious looking ‘copy-cat’ recipes on Pinterest, but there is just something nostalgic about the taste of the original (in my case) drink.
Today at the Farmer’s Market, the old ladies told me to walk,walk,walk (to help speed things along). It was sweet. Also at the market I noticed a bunch of apples and got excited about going to Apple Hill soon. I almost bought a bunch of apples today, but it’s not the same. Andrey laughs at my sentimentality. ;)
Photo recycled from our 2011 trip
The photo above was taken two years ago at our first annual family trip. Can’t believe this year will make 3 years! Speaking of photos, I’ve had a lot of free time on my hands lately so I organized/uploaded my photos onto a new hard drive. It took me forever! How do you guys organize your photos? Years, Seasons, Events? I love it when things are organized/easy to find.
I got these flowers as an early birthday gift, and gosh I really love them! They brighten my doorstep, and mood every time I see them! It’s the little things. :)
Recently (with all the free time I’ve been having:), I stumbled on some funny ‘hey girl’ memes…they always make me laugh, and so as a joke I made a meme with Andrey’s old picture and sent it to him. He thought it was pretty cool, so I’ll share it with you. What do you guys think? Should I change my occupation and become a professional meme maker? ;)
I think I should finish up here, as the sun has already set, and my walk that I had planned on taking is now not going to happen. All is well friends, you were worth it!
