Happy Halloween!

Another Halloween - another chance to dress up in a goofy costume!

This year I decided to dress up as myself...sort of. This year I will be a
PEZ dispenser (literally).

This year isn't all about goblins,
ghosts or trick or treats,
it's also about a little one
that we will soon get to meet.
March will probably be the lucky month -
or so the doctor says,
when we will welcome little boy
or girl Baby PEZ.

"bump" @ 17 weeks

We attended Dino's cousins wedding last night at the Palliser Hotel (Dino's cousin). It was a beautiful wedding - great food and company. And we got to visit with cousins from out of town that we don't see very often. I managed to squeeze into a dress in my closet that I wore last Christmas. It was quite stretchy, but I think it was at it's limit. Time to put it away till after..  :-(

San Francisco ~ Oct. 7-11, 2011

We took a mini trip to San Francisco. It was fun, but exhausting! Did tons of walking and sight seeing. The weather was awesome - sunny and warm, rain only one day. It is a very interesting place...with very interesting people. We had some good laughs while we were there! It turned out to be Fleet Week - where the US Navy does an air show. It was cool to see and hear all the different planes flying around for the weekend - especially the Stealth plane. A few other sights we toured - Alcatraz, walked across the Golden Gate Bridge, shopped a bit in Union Square, walked the Wharf a few times and saw the stinky seals at Pier 39. I think the trip made us appreciate home a bit more. We thought the traffic and driving was bad in Calgary - I was surprised that we made it back to our hotel some days  :-) Here are a few photos of our trip.

"bump" @ 15 weeks

This picture was taken last week - September 28 @ 15 weeks. I finally told work and was happy to be dressing somewhat normal and not having to camouflage. It was getting difficult!

I am feeling ok, just quite tired. I was hoping I would have already got my "2nd trimester" burst of energy (that the books talk about), but no such luck yet. 

We are leaving this coming Friday for a mini-trip to San Francisco. I hope I have enough energy to view the sites and walk the city.
