Wednesday

Picture 253Picture 255I am EXHAUSTED today! It's all my fault. Our Comcast digital cable box yet AGAIN was on the fritz so my husband took it in yesterday to be replaced. Yet again, he arrived at a great time, and they did a little tweaking here and there of our plan where now we are paying $30 less than before but have a DVR, HBO, Showtime, Starz, HD channels and the other stuff we previously had. I don't know how the man does it, but he goes in a store or calls up a service and leaves with a ridiculous deal!

So we were flipping channels like mad last night and I saw “Fame” was on HBO OD. I love that movie, not sure why but I do. Wish I had remembered it's near three hours long… I ended up staying up past 11:30 to watch the whole stupid thing that I have seen 50 times before. Hubby had headed to bed, even Ruckus left me to go up to his doggy bed.

So this morning I was DRAGGING. I know I can still have a little bit of caffeine but I try to make do without. Took Ruckus for a walk and did some energizing yoga, but still fell asleep on the Metro heading to work and eight hours later still dragging! Early night tonight!

    Listen my lovely, ignore any comments about fat ankles or the like – I can’t believe that you actually get that happening, though, people can be very catty when they are hiding behind the anonymity of the internet. You always look lovely and I can’t wait to see how you adorn your growing bump!

    Hey Lia:
    Yeah my friend sent me the actual post from Kanye’s blog. He did perform his heart out, they did break the screen and throw stuff on the stage. I believe him and think that Superfly was scared to tell him no regarding the set, more afraid of a no-show than a late show. Totally unfortunate.

    On the way home I got on the Metro and as soon as I did a guy got up and gave me his seat. I gladly took it and smiled and sat (it was PACKED on there). Then I hear, “did I just give my seat to a pregnant lady or just a lazy fat chick?” and his friend laughed. How about buster you just did a gentlemanly thing and leave it at that? It’s AMAZING what comes out of people’s mouths!

    Oh this new cable box and deal is SO going to get me in trouble! Just as the husband and I have made a pact to watch less TV! Last night we really rotted our brains and watched “Employee of the Month.” What the heck! We looked at each other, I said, ‘WHY are we watching this?” He smiled, “Because we can” and we watched through to the credits, losing IQ points along the way.

    But yes, I have heard amazing things about Weeds, maybe if I DVR it I won’t stay up late and won’t watch crap movies!

    one word “WEEDS”!!!!!

    Now that you have Showtime, you must watch this show. Rent the first 3 seasons, the 4th season just started….

    I have to say – I think the fatigue will be a constant battle for a while. ;P The other day, I did absolutely nothing different from any other day and I was SO TIRED…I was just craving sleep. Baby’s just working overtime once in a while I guess!

    I can see what the other person is saying…it reminds me of a couple women from my yoga class. One is about 5.5 months pregnant and she gets comments like “you have HOW LONG left?” because they think she’s further along than she is because she’s a bit bigger. There was another nasty comment that made us all gasp but my pregnant mind forgot it. ;P If people kept their nasty opinions to themselves, maybe there wouldn’t be a market for t-shirts that end up being slightly offensive to some.

    I am exactly the same way with Saturday Night Fever, and I have no idea why! I love your blog by the way and Congrats on your pregnancy. You look great!!!

    I didn’t think your T-shirt was bad. I thought it was a play on words, so to speak, on the answer fat (or, in this society, not underweight) people are stuck with when asked if they are pregnant.

    Hey Allie!

    You look cute today, the dress is flattering on you. Was wondering if you’re still liking your wet to dry flat iron. I’m thinking about buying one in a couple weeks to help maintain my new cut. (See Rachel Melvin on Days of Our Lives–asymmetrical cut) My hair is already stick straight now but I get a few “flippies” on the sides. Does it take you long to do your whole hair? I’ve tried straightening it with a brush while drying it but it just gets frizzy on the ends.

    Hi Mimi:

    Thanks for commenting about this. Point taken. I am not thin, the only times in my life that I have been thin it has been due to unhealthy practices. I don’t find anything wrong with my shape and love my body.

    I think I have been overly sensitive with these silly pregnancy hormones a flying, and also the nasty comments a flying. It’s hard when you are having lunch and decide to check your email and get 10 comments in a row about your fat ankles, how you look like you have gained weight, how this garment or that shoe makes you look pudgy and all you are trying to do is eat your sandwich before your next client meeting and hoping your boss doesn’t guess you’re pregnant before you tell him.

    I brought this upon myself with this blog, and I maintain this blog because I want to show that beauty and a sense of style comes in all sizes and budget levels. I love the women I have met through it – showing that fabulousness, beauty and fashion DOES come in all shapes and sizes, all over the globe! So I thank you for this reminder! ūüôā

    Dear Allie:

    First let me say that I love your blog, and have been following it for about a year. I do have one comment on a post of a couple of days ago. Please do not disparage fat people with the “I am not fat” maternity tee shirt.
    At 5’6″ and 235lbs I am most decidedly fat, but to me fat is not a dirty word. It’s just a descriptor like “blue eyes” or “blond hair”. There is nothing in the world wrong with being fat, and I consider you an advocate of people of all sizes.
    So please, no more “I’m not fat, just pregnant” talk. I am fat, and to me that’s not a bad thing.

    Thanks!
    Mimi
