Nate and I ventured down to PCB last week for one last vacation before Peanut joins us in the world! We call it the "calm before the storm." I was a little hesitant about being in the car 13 hours at ~7 months pregnant! After talking with Katie M, she quickly reassured me the drive wasn't bad pregnant and she thought it was a killer idea!! So, I told Nate, let's go for it!! We packed our suits, towels, sunscreen, and books and headed south for a little "2nd honeymoon" as Nate likes to call it!! Oh yeah, Nate reminded me to make sure to pack Peanut too! :) I told him that shouldn't be a problem this time around. She is pretty low maintenance! :)
I LOVE READING on the beach!!! I have to say that I finished 3 books! One of which being a 250-page breastfeeding book!! Now how many of you can say that you took a breastfeeding book with you to FL on your last trip??? I bet I can count on one hand huh? It was a great book and very informative!! A lot more info than I ever thought I would need to know!!! Nate tells me that we are going to be "know-it-all's" in our Breastfeeding Class in November. Should we be that annoying couple that sits at the front of the classroom and answers ALL the teachers questions?? Those of you that know me well -- I would NEVER brown-nose would I??? :)
My "hunk" of a husband checking out the beauty of the ocean!
One of our sunset photo shoots! Does the outfit look familiar?
My new-found appreciation for beach umbrella's! However, I learned you still need to wear sunscreen while sitting under one b/c the light is reflected up from the sand!! My whole left side was bright red after 3 hours of sitting there!!
Yes, I am "that" tacky person on the beach in a bikini that probably shouldn't be!!! Who needs maternity suits?? My policy -- no need to cover up that baby bump! Wear it proud!!! I told you that you needed some sunglasses for that white belly! :)
The beautiful sunset from our balcony! How amazing!!
Nate sitting on a sailboat at the end of one of our many beach walks!! It isn't as easy walking on the beach at 7 months pregnant! The uneven surface will really do a prego-mama in with some quality back pain!!!
Hope you enjoyed some of our many pictures from our trip! :)
Back to the grind of daily life! :( Boo Hoo!!! Anyone know how many days left till I get to be a mom and stop working as a pharmacist for awhile??? (I know the "work" I am looking forward to will be harder than any day at the office -- but I can't wait for it!) All I can say is "Bring it On Baby!!!"
