just keepin' it real, folks. just keepin' it real..

I absolutely cannot keep this to myself!
I'm not sure why I feel so inclined to share this but I do!
Ruby was fooling with my camera and snapped this gorgeous picture of me.
I'm thinking of framing it?
Or maybe I'll give it to Andy as a Christmas gift?
You know, so he'll always remember his beautiful, glowing, radiant pregnant wife.
Lest he never forget this wonderful time in our lives.

Here I am 25 weeks pregnant,
just beaming with joy and life!

Hahahaha!! I cannot stop laughing at this.
This is my reality folks!
Chillin' on the couch in my jammies at 1:30 in the afternoon.

Oh dear.
I'm sure I'll regret this posting but I was kinda feeling like a fraud.
I have posted several pictures of myself on facebook all dolled up, with a huge smile..
it was all staged people!!!
The only day my hair gets brushed is Sunday, I rarely wear 'real' clothing, and my smile is usually 1/2 real, 1/2 fake.

My poor husband.
This is his reality also.
(Wish I could attach an audio file of my complaining so you get the full effect!)

So this is your warning:
if you choose to 'pop' over to our place,
THIS is what you will find!
(so maybe you wanna give me a call first and I'll at least put some jeans on..)

And to my sweet Andy,
I promise I'll be back and better than ever once this little man arrives!
(or within the year of his arrival)

So hopefully you had a good laugh and feel a little better about yourself today!


  1. Oh man. You are so awesome! I also sit around some days in old sweatpants that I slept in. The only thing is, I don't have an excuse like you. :) Wish I could be around to see the little boy.

  2. LOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEE this!!! (and i feel like such a teenage for using a hundred letters in a four letter word). This is me, in jammies, hair/makeup not done...almost every day. The only difference? for the first time in five years, NO belly! (and, dare I say, I was so impressed that it appears as though you are wearing an over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder. Or else you've still got the perk. In which case, I am jealous). Thank you SO much for keeping it makes me feel so much more normal!!! (except you still look really pretty and downright human with non-styled hair and little to no makeup, unlike myself).

  3. Here was me, keeping it real, in July:
    (brace yourself):

  4. Ha! No, I don't feel better about myself Bethy because you still look beautiful even when you're not dolled up! FYI- you know you don't need to bother getting dressed for me on Tuesday. I''ll come in my PJs if you want me to.

  5. Hahaha, when you said this post contained a disturbing image I was thinking of some starving kid or something! No, you look adorable and I just want to give you a hug! For the record, I have been wearing makeup only when I go to church the last couple of months and I was in my pjs today til...what? nearly 1 o'clock. I usually make it a point to get dressed before going down to the kitchen simply because I require it of my boys and it seems weird if they do and I don't. I even blogged about that once. But today was a day of raging hormones...why can't they be happy hormones? I'm glad us moms can be real!

  6. you are so hilarious. this is great. hope you are feeling better...mis.
