I just got back from a getaway to lovely Arizona. Because it was nearly 80 degrees and sunny, I spent a good chunk of time sitting on my parents back patio soaking up the sunshine and this view. (Can you believe I ever left?)
I was tired of the clouds and the cold in the Midwest. I think a little Vitamin D was just what this cranky, pregnant lady needed. That, and parents who spoiled her rotten.
Papa Bear was turning the big 5-5, so my brother Kyle and I both flew down for the weekend.
But somehow being the incubator for the first grandbaby made me quite the attraction. (My mom may have even stopped someone walking her dog to show her my belly. She’s one proud grandma.)
We did some celebrating, lots of eating, a bit of (baby) shopping and plenty of soaking up the sun. Needless to say, my pampered self was in for a rude awakening when I got home to 30 degrees and snow.
And Ryan has yet to make me a snack, like mom does.
Whatever is a girl to do?
