Thoughts from Robyn

So since I have been out of school these past couple of weeks it has given me time to think about things. One of the things I have been thinking the most about is that I love not being in school. For the first time in a long time I am just a mom and wife and not a student. I told Roy that I am going to be the best wife ever for a couple of months and than the baby will come and that will go away for a while. But I realized this will set a bad precedent and get him used to something that can't possibly continue :). So I have settled for being a good wife that occasionally forgets to do the laundry!

Secondly, I have remembered why I don't like being pregnant. The other day I caught a glimpse of myself naked and almost passed out. One of my rules when I am pregnant is that I must squint when I look at myself but it seems like I forgot and got a clear shot of all that is Robyn :). Man I miss my pre-preggo body. Now it has been replaced with breasts that look like they belong in National Geographic, legs that are starting to resemble tree-trunks, and a belly that still has people looking at me and wondering if I am pregnant or just enjoying the holidays too much! But alas, I know that this will eventually end and I will have a beautiful baby to thank for it. Let's just hope it goes bye fast or I am going to have to break all the mirrors in my house .... just kidding... not really.... yeah I'm kidding! And thanks to Roy for putting up with all my complaining.

And lastly, I keep thinking about my happy place. This place involves me sitting on a beach and it being very quiet except for the waves coming in. I'm lounging and of course have a rockin' body and awesome tan and a strawberry smoothie in my hand. I would love to be there right now. This rainy weather is making me want to stay in bed all day and consider the idea of never wearing a bra again, and let me tell you, that is something you do not want to see! One day I will be in my happy place but for now I will settle with no school, a happy family, a growing belly and baby and a quest to be a semi-awesome wife :)!

Christmas Pics

The pictures with Evy and the snowman were taken at Sugar Mountain. I was expecting lots of snow but what we found was anything but that. Looks like mother nature was not aware of my vacation plans. Roy and Evy managed to find a little bit of snow to make a snowman. There are also some of Christmas Eve and Christmas morning. Roy got me the PEDI- EGG for Christmas. And let me tell you, it actually works. You'd think a present that shaves off your dead skin wouldn't be very Christmasy, but surprisingly its awesome. Massive points for Roy. Maybe the reason why he got it was because he was tired of getting slashed by my knife-like feet. HMMMMM?

Pics from the Holidays

Here are some pics from Thanksgiving and the Turkey Trot. My brother is in some of them. He beat everyone... dang that over-achiever!
