Best Moment this week: Strangers starting to ask me when I'm due. I don't know why I love that - but I do.
(I do not however love that when I'm NOT pregnant - and it has happened to me before!)

I think I look bigger in the Harper picture here - but it's only because of that dress.  You will see that I wear jeans pretty much every day this time around.  One because maternity jeans are SOOOOO comfy and also with Harper I was working and needed to wear dresses.  Also I've realized that dresses usually end up making me look a lot LARGER.
I have a feeling after I'm back to normal - the jeans will probably go away again. I wish all jeans had that maternity panel. It's a gift from heaven. I'm not kidding!

Tonight I met a bunch of friends for a girls night. We ate and went to a movie and it was just so nice to have a little girl talk! I think we were all so excited to be out together - everyone was talking a mile a minute! One of the things I'm MOST thankful for this year is so many wonderful Christian friends.  Each of you make my life so sweet!

I hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving! If I had one word to describe myself right now it would be THANKFUL! My life is not perfect and it never will be but I have SO much to be thankful for. We really all do.

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him,  rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. 
Colossians 2:6-7
