Pregnancy related.

All because of a photo . . . my Grandma is holding her egg salad making abilities hostage from me, until I give her my word that I have deleted this picture. Even though a second later we took a great one, in which she is smiling, this picture is by far my favorite. There's something about the surprised look on her face in combination with her expressed vanity regarding how horrible she thinks it is. It has also turned into a bit of a game for us. I just never knew she would hold out her egg salad, which my baby needs! :)

Additionally, there is no shortage of sweet sweet smiles given to me by my male friends, brother and husband. It's just the cutest thing to catch them staring at my stomach with a little crooked smile as they think of the possibilities. Unfortunately, Christmas Day, the first such day that my brother blessed me with this smile, he followed it up by saying {still with sweet smile}: "Wow, Leah, you've really exploded."

Finally, I failed to mention the melt down that nearly was on Friday. Tony ate my lean pocket, right before we were to leave for our doctor's appointment, so not only had I not eaten in 3 or so hours, I was unable to eat for an additional 1 1/2 after I really wanted to. Of course I got an "I'm sorry," but honestly, it was the closest to flippant that Tony has ever been. I wanted to start crying and throw a hissy fit on the way to and from the doctor, but somehow, I realized that that just wasn't rational. Thankfully. So when we got back, I ate.

My husband would've been the receipient of bodily harm were he to do such a thing. I am glad you are so rational and Tony is a lucky man!!

Hilarious! I love those kinds of pictures. Lucky for me my husband typically poses with that sort of look so I have thousands of those... This one of your grandma is just cracking me up!

Mmmm, egg salad does sound good. What's her secret? Typically it's just hard boiled eggs, mayo to taste and mustard to taste. We always add a packet of sweet'n'low and some salt and pepper too. YUM! I just bought eggs and I think I'm going to whip some of this up tonight... Thanks for the idea!

Yum egg salad does sound good! I have been known to get quite cranky when I'm hungry, I can only imagine what it will be like when I'm pregnant on top of it...poor Mike :)

Oh no he DIDN'T!! Although I'm not pregnant, I can totally relate to this (the Lean Pocket incident of
'09) =0)

Good luck tomorrow on your interview!

You look so pretty in that picture, BTW! And your grandma is very cute-hopefully she will give you some egg salad soon.

Love the picture! I wonder how long she'll hold out on the egg salad now that you've posted it on the internet! ;)
Also at 23 weeks you look gorgeous!

Your Grandma is so cute and I love that you are able to catch your brother and husband smiling at you and the baby!!! However, I can't believe Tony would steal your lean pocket!!! It's okay to get mad. You can't help it! You're a hungry pregnant women. Men should know better! LOL :)

I would totally not being above lying to my grandmother that I had deleted a picture, when in reality I hadn't. OR you could go ahead and delete the one off your hard drive, knowing that now you have a copy online that you can right click and "Save As" as soon as you have some egg salad in your belly!

Your g-ma is adorable!!

Well, I know what I'm having for lunch tomorrow! Egg salad that is. Not the Lean Pocket. Sorry. (I prefer the full fat ones. lol)

Ashley said...

So funny! P.S. Have you seen the movie Twilight? You remind me SOO much of Bella. Come to think of it, your personality is a lot like hers in the books, too. Just FYI!

AJ said...

Your grandma's a cutie. Boo to lean pocket-stealing husbands.

Chelsie said...

What a cute grandma. How dare Tony eat the last lean pocket! I would not have been happy either, hehe.

Good luck with your interview tomorrow. I will be praying for you!
