5QF + weekly recap - 08.13.10

I'm so sorry I have been a bit of a slacker this week. I have been literally EXHAUSTED - passing out on the couch every night after work. I guess Baby J is taking up a lot of the energy I have left! I will be posting my 27-28 week pregnancy updates {this weekend}, the answers to the questions everyone left during my CSN Giveaway, a comprehensive house/baby/misc to do list (a continuation of my spring/summer list), some nursery updates + a new DIY project & a cute baby stuff post to show off all the cute stuff we have bought or received as gifts so far!

This week has been pretty slow & uneventful. This week was one of my close co-worker friend's last week in our office - I'm SO gonna miss her, but she got an awesome promotion & pay increase, so I'd be moving right along if I were her too! We'll stay in touch I'm sure - I sent her a threatening email telling her that she better keep in touch, so that should do it, lol. I have had a pretty good work week - I got a personnel folder notification (ours are automated/electronic) saying that my individual cash award had been processed, so I'm hoping to get that next pay period, woot! And I also got a BIG new responsibility at work & I'm soooo excited - more on that lata. I was actually relieved that I didn't have many plans this weekend, but now I'm heading to go look at my baby shower location on Saturday, then to Maryland to stop by a friend's house (she's giving us some more baby stuff) & a to another friend's baby shower on Sunday. Today's Friday the 13th & call me superstitious, but I'm laying low - snuggling up on my couch & catching up on some DVR'ed shows. I think the no energy thing that they say happens in the 3rd trimester is starting to kick in for me - I feel like there's so much to do & I just don't feel like doing any of it! Sigh.

And now on to 5QF! If you want to participate, head on over to My Little Life & link up (and let me know if you do, I'd love to read my reader's answers)!

1. Have you ever visited another country?
Yep, I've been to the Bahamas & the Dominican Republic. We went to the DR for our honeymoon & has SUCH a great time...I highly recommend a trip there if you haven't been. While there we lounged around the resort, hung out on the beach, participated in the daily activities, attended shows, rode horses on the beach, had champagne in our jacuzzi tub, went on a 3-hour trip to the capital on the DR - Santo Domingo & we even did an off-resort excursion riding ATVs on land & on the beach. Never a dull moment. We stayed at the Excellence Punta Cana & everyone was soo nice!

2. Where is the strangest place you have ever been?

Hmm, that's a tough question. I can't really point to a strange place...shady? Sure. But strange is a tough one.

3. What is your favorite season?

FALL all the way & it's right around the corner, woot! I'm so excited that our little girl will be a Fall baby!! I love Halloween, Thanksgiving, all the rich/warm fall colors, the lovely fall clothes, pumpkin pies, the smell of fall in the air, the colors of the trees & the slight chill in the air. I also love decorating my home for the fall - I'm already thinking up a few simple ideas to decorate this year - I'm looking for something low maintenance since we'll have a new baby come mid-fall!!

4. What one song will always cheer you up?

Twist & Shout, LOL. It's just so upbeat & happy - you can't help but twist a little bit! 
5. What Disney character do you resemble most?

I think I'll go with Jasmin from Disney's Aladdin. I'm mixed with black & white, but people have told me before that I look like I have some sort of Arabian background? I think we have similarly color skin & dark hair...besides that - I can't really think of any other Disney characters that I resemble!
That's all I got for today - I have to try & get a least a little work done today. ;op 'Till next time!


Life Happens said...

Fall is my favorite time of year too! I think I'm the happiest in the Fall. All the vibrant colors on the trees, pumpkin patches, apple picking, cool days/nights...what's not to love.

And this fall you will have a big celebration with the addition of baby J! All the more to love fall!

Enjoy your weekend.
