a dog filmed their owner's wedding and it's awesome

A couple in TN let their dog film their casual, snowy mountain wedding with a GoPro camera attached to its back. This such a unique idea, and perfect idea for people who weren't going to have an official wedding video, but wanted something fun and laid back instead! Here is the video:

30 week update!

If you missed my 29 week update, find it here.

How Far Along: 30 weeks! I always said that I would freak out when I got to 30 weeks since I could potentially deliver in the 30-something week phase, and here we are!

Gender: Waiting to find out 

Baby Size: Large cabbage

Total Weight Gain: 22 pounds

Maternity Clothes: Besides long T-shirts, I'm mostly wearing maternity clothes.

Sleep: Really hard to get up and push myself over the Snoogle in the morning. Luckily Matt helps if he's awake.

Miss Anything: Doing things with ease.

Cravings: Sweets

Symptoms: Occasional heartburn, but nothing Tums can't fix.

Belly Button/Body Changes: The line on my stomach is showing now. The baby is kicking like crazy pretty much most of the time. Sometimes it's so strong it scares me!

Mood: Happy to have a little break for the holiday week.

Exercise: Taking a lap around my office complex during my lunch break.

Looking Forward to: Going to Helen to see Matt's family for Thanksgiving!

bumpin 'n noogs - my trip to chattanooga

I had an amazing time in Chattanooga with my college girlfriends. They were so sweet to love up on my and my friend Ashley - who is due four days before me! They threw us a little baby shower and gave us such cute stuff. Here are some photos of the trip.

our halloween party

We had our 4th annual Werewolf Bar Mitzvah last weekend! Matt and I dressed as a 60s housewife knocked up by the Milkman. Matt made a "thumb punch" (cranberry, Hawaiian punch, and Vodka) based on my brother-in-law's table saw injury. He also made our annual jello brain mold. It just gets weirder and weirder every year! We had so much fun!
