Welp, I've returned from a lovely weekend at the beach! It was VERY hard to come back...I even tried convincing Austin that we should both quit our jobs and just stay there ;). Needless to say, that didn't fly.

We had SO much fun! We drove down (over?) Friday night after I got off of work, got there around 9:30. Slept in Saturday morning, had breakfast at the cafe there, and hit the beach for a few hours. It was AWESOME weather! There was a constant breeze so it was never sweltering. We played in the water and Austin tried to look for sand dollars, and had no luck :(. After we'd had enough sun, we showered and hit St Armand's Circle for some late lunch, shopping, and ice cream! We had lunch at The Columbia. I had this interesting salad, that all it consisted of was red onions and tomatoes with a balsamic vinaigrette, YUM!
Afterwards, we walked the circle looking at all of the cute shops and ended the afternoon with some ice cream at Ben and Jerry's.

That evening, we were bored so we headed over to an outlet mall. We did some damage (as I ALWAYS can, especially at the outlets!). I got my first few pieces of maternity clothes! Austin waited outside my fitting room as I showed him everything I tried on...he got a kick out of the strap-on belly they give you to use with the clothes, lol. My pants have started to get a *tad* bit uncomfortable, so I wanted to go ahead and get some pants so I'm not stuck when I can't wear my normal ones anymore!! I was telling Austin that shopping in a maternity store makes me feel so old! I don't know why...

Anyhoo, we left late this morning and before heading home, I took Austin by my old house, when we lived in Bradenton. It's always fun to go back and see how things change, and it was especially neat to do it with him :). So now, I sit here, back at home, dreading the work week....with my head POUNDING. Arg, the one complaint I have with pregnancy. I guess since I skipped the morning sickness I had to get something lol.

OH! One more tidbit of info: At my drs appt last week they gave me my referral to make *THE* u/s appointment! YAY! So August 31st at 3:00 we find out if Bean's a girl or boy! These next 7 days better FLY!!! :)

I'm glad I'm not the only one who felt old when trying on maternity clothes! It was kinda neat at first, but I'm defiantly looking forward to wearing my old stuff again!

Can't wait to find out if you're having a boy or a girl!

Glad you had a good weekend, now it's back to telling people you are placing their check on hold because they are stupid and spent too much money over the weekend! :)
