Home Sweet Home

I love vacations, because honestly I love to go anywhere and I don't especially care where that is, but even more than vacations I love coming home from vacations. Well, except for the part where I have to go back to work tomorrow. Anyway, we are home from a week on the Outer Banks. Most of the week went like this:

Wake up
Eat breakfast
Walk on the beach
Read on the deck looking over the ocean
Get a sundae with homemade ice cream for lunch
Read on the deck looking over the ocean
Dinner (including the most perfect crab cakes known to man, which lead to the worst heartburn known to man)
Pool (Chris kicked my ass most of the time, but it was still fun)
Sleep with the door open and the sound of the ocean

We also did some other things like took my little pseudo-SUV driving over the dunes up north of Corolla where the road ends and drove down to Manteo for an afternoon, but really it was an entirely lazy vacation. Considering that our last two vacations were a non-stop week in NYC and two non-stop weeks in France, utter laziness was just what we were going for.

For those of you playing the home game, my beach reading was:
Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
Plan B by Jonathan Trooper
The Last Juror by John Grisham
and the Weekly World News, just to stay informed.

Chris has posted most of our pictures over at his place, so you can check them out there if you are so inclined.

I think it is funny how many people told me to enjoy our last vacation without the baby, because the baby was definitely part of this vacation. I guess the sea air agreed with her, because she spent the whole week doing jumping jacks and half gainers. She also helped initiate me to the joys of incredibly painful heartburn, which I am not enjoying but understand that I am still getting off very easily with this whole pregnancy thing. I am a bit concerned that Chris is getting a little carried away with the sympathy pregnancy symptoms. I mean, I told him he ought to gain some weight just to make me feel better, but this is ridiculous.

The cat wasn't too thrilled by it either.


And I think my belly is definitely cuter than his.

You do have a cute belly, shame on your on behalf of many women. :) Glad you had such a good time and enjoyed my home state, I do miss it. Blech, now it's back to work.

THAT is the cutest belly ever! :)) I'm glad you had a great time!

Poor kitty... :))

oh, that poor cat. lol. aww, yay for cute pregnancy bellies :D

So glad you had a wonderful relaxing vacation... I envy you. You are a lucky gal to have such a wonderful husband and a baby on the way.

Sounds like a very good vacation. You have a very cute belly.

fabulous vacation, cute belly, and a terrorized cat. :)

Did you enjoy the last juror? I picked it up last week, and have only made it about a 1/4 way through yet.

glad to hear you had a good vacation. i'm curious, cuz i can't see it...does your belly button stick out?

Your belly looks marvellous. I checked out the vacation pics - glad you both had a wonderfully relaxing time. Seems the Beanette enjoyed that sea air, too :)

Awww! Welcome home!

that is the sweetest little weeee tummy!
you are soooooooo tiny!
you lucky duck :o)

You are adorable! The both of you! I bet the cat missed him! Smirk!

Sorry you have to go back to work...but I am glad you had fun and are now relaxing at home!

Your belly is so cute! I am so jealous, but happy for you!

Aw! Glad it was relaxing for you! Our last hoorah without the baby will be in N'Awlins for the best food ever.

Hee, poor kitty. Welcome back!

Welcome back!Glad you had a lazy wonderful time. Sounds like heaven. And I agree with the rest- very cute belly. :-)

Man, I get to see that hawt belly action first thing in the morning and now I have to try and concentrate ALL DAY on work. Not fair!!!

Glad you had a nice relaxing time, but also? Your blog has missed you.

How funny! And I hope for Chris' sake that cat is declawed :)

What a cute belly you are getting. I couldn't be happier for you!

Yes, your belly is of course cuter, and less hairy, than his! :)
Oh and I remember the pregnancy hearburn, ugh! I couldn't eat pizza without it...but I still suffered through....can't live without the pizza :)

Definitely cuter! Glad you had a great time.

Welcome back! we missed you :)
That's a wonderful vacation you just spent, what a great idea to just relax, eat and read for a week. My vacations have always been quite the opposite.
PS. You have the cutest belly.

welcome home! Sounds like a perfect vacation, and you got very busy with the reading. And your belly is VERY CUTE, of course.

Yay, you're back! Glad you had a nice time, but the next time you leave for that long I'm afraid we'll have to break up.

Glad you had a great vacation! We just home from our first after baby vacation. Come on by to see cute pics...It was fun but different...I took 3 books to enjoy and only ended up reading about 10 pages. But nothing can hold a candle to the look of wonder about the ocean, fish, shells, etc. So fun!! Welcome home.

My lovely husband loves to shout out, "Get in my Belly!" a la Fat Bastard when we take belly pics. :)

Getting ready to really pop!

Way cuter, and far less lumpy.

What do you mean you are just now experiencing heartburn. I'm 7 weeks and have had it for 2 weeks now. No fair!
