Going to a friends for a cook out. It is nice because we never get invited anywhere. They have 6 so I guess we don't seem so weird to them.

My friend posted a pic of me standing behind my youngest on fb. You can only see me from the neck down and I look awful!! I fell of the weight loss wagon and didn't realize how quickly I'd gain the weight back until I saw the pic. I cried. Anyway, no more wine for me for a while.

Beer and alcohol in general is horrendously expensive up here. When I was in the States last year I saw the bottle of wine that I buy that was less than half of what we pay up here. I'm fine with it being taxed like crazy, I do like a glass of wine, but I can totally do without.

It's nephew's 18th birthday today, (the one that lived with us last year) and his mother invited dh and I to go out for dinner with all of their side. She said it was fine if we didn't want to, but I'm so glad we get to come.

I don't drink anymore, haven't had a single drink in probably 3-3 1/2 years. I decided I wasn't going to drink anymore when dh quit.

I have gained 9 lbs so far with this pregnancy. 9-11 more weeks to go. I am hoping to keep it to no more than another 5-6 lbs tops.

How do you keep your weight gain so low? I swear I put on 20 lbs alone in amniotic fluid! I'm that person that when my water breaks there really is a flood, lol!

Our big van suffered some hail damage and it's being inspected by the insurance agent now. I don't know why sitting here watching him inspect my van so closely is making me so nervous.

I don't drink, haven't found anything that doesn't taste like crap. Last week though Seagram's has these new drinks out and the looked amazing so I bought 3 of them. Tried one and it was okay, still have two more to try lol

No weight gain here when pregnant, but I'm so sick the thought of food makes me sick.

Sorry about the hail damage. That sucks

That's all I've got lol

Hopefully the hail damage is fixed quickly and easily.

I have never gained a lot when pregnant. This time I am very careful what I am eating and I low carb all the time. After baby I am determined to get to my goal weight of 165.

I like a few drinks, sometimes I miss the buzz, the relaxation. I'm not going to drink though since dh is a recovering alcoholic. I can give it up for him. He's more important.

I actually like a lot of beers. I used to kinda like wine, but now not so much. No Guiness though, anything that you have to shake to drink is disgusting.

I don't drink either. Haven't since 1993 when I got so sick on vodka shots with tequila chasers. Three days I was sick. Didn't trust myself to know my limits when I went to Russia. Never went back to it. We have a lot of alcoholism in my family, both sides, so I just didn't want drinking to be part of our family.

4 kids to the dentist today, no cavities!

Yay for no cavities!

I'm like you though FW, we have a lot of addiction on my mom's side of the family and I just think it's safer to stay away. I'm just lucky I don't really care for the taste

I don't really like the taste of alcohol. I drink very rarely, and I do like a drink at the Cheesecake Factory. It's called a flying gorilla. It tastes like a chocolate banana milkshake. Mmmm!! Fortunately, we don't go often, and I can't afford to drink much there!

I'm jealous of your weight gain, UM. I have never gained less than 45 pounds with a pregnancy. And the lower my starting weight, the more weight I gain. My body apparently "needs" a certain weight to maintain a pregnancy. It doesn't matter if I eat healthy or not...

Flying Gorilla just sounds like something worth trying. LOL

Yay for no cavities. I swear we have bad teeth in our family. Somebody always has a cavity.

I remember one time when dh was still drinking, he was drunk already and went and bought a pint of gin. My silly self thought if I drank it, he wouldn't get stupid drunk, so I **** near slammed a pint of gin. The room was spinning, I felt soooooooo bad. Never again. Gin is so nasty too, tastes like licking a pine tree.

I don't know what storybook forest is, but kennywood is an amusement park. We didn't go with her, and we're not going fishing either. Frost killed all of our green beans, so it looks like we're replanting.

I'm working to keep myself distracted so I won't worry about DD. First time she's going somewhere like this without us. I took pics of her in the clothes she wore to school this morning and one of her in her bathing suit and a pic of her shoes. Just in case. I know, worry worry.
