week 15

Week 15 brought on a couple of very strong cravings...orange juice and hot dogs. Oddly, didn't love either prior to pregnancy. Thankfully, I rarely rely on the Zofran anymore. Only occasionally will I take one, and even then, the nausea isn't like it was during my first trimester. Even more odd, when I am nauseous, a hot dog sounds good. Pregnancy couldn't be weirder, but it really is an amazing experience!

We have our week 16 appointment tomorrow. While I'm of course excited to hear our baby's heartbeat, it's the next appointment we are excited for - when we find out the gender!!!

Off to find a hot dog...

{early} birthday celebration

I have the very best girlfriends a girl could ask for! To celebrate my birthday {which actually isn't until the 10th}, my girlfriends planned a very special day of brunch and Legally Blonde the Musical. Melanie, Kristi, Jolene, Aylan, Emily, and my awesome MIL Marie joined in on the fun!

We started off the morning at Grub. And grub we did! Delicious food and perfect ambiance for catching up and giggling like little girls.

Mel & Kristi, the planners

The girls were so extremely generous with their {unexpected} gifts, too. I couldn't believe that they all brought gift bags with goodies for me! Spoiled I tell ya!

I really enjoyed brunch, but I was so excited to get to the Pantages. After Rob and I saw Legally Blonde on Broadway in NYC a couple of years ago, I was instantly excited to see the show again. When I found out it was coming to LA, I was ecstatic!


The Pantages

The show didn't disappoint! I'm even thinking about seeing it again in Orange County. Maybe my SIL Laura will want to go with me since she couldn't make it Sunday {hint, hint, Laura :)}...

Seriously, I really am one lucky girl with wonderful friends who willingly indulge in my guilty pleasures!
