Like Mother Like Daughter

So next week is our three year anniversary and we have decided to just go away for one night to South Carolina. Judah's adopted grandparents are going to keep him for the night so we'll be baby free for 36 hours! Which means we can go see a movie and eat somewhere that doesn't provide high chairs :)

I wanted to share the coolest website for trip planning - www.tripadvisor.com -we used it when planning our trip to Jamaica too and the tips shared saved us tons of money! And we're currently using it now to plan our trip for next week. If you're planning on going to a new city - or even if you just want to find some cool things out about your own city - check it out! The Forums are my favorite feature, as it's real-life people talking about where to eat/see/do.


Mum and Me about the same age... I think.

I have clung to the fact that me losing my mind is because I'm pregnant. Nothing more. But this week the horrifying thought hit me ... maybe I'm just totally turning into my mother. Not that it would normally be such a bad thing to turn into my mother. I like lots and lots of things about my mum. Well, really I like most everything about my mum :) She's got the weirdest sense of humor that I find hysterical (and thankfully Paul finds it funny too... :) She's creative, talented and fun. She gives out sick presents and lets you eat ice cream if your throat hurts.
But she shared something with me this week that made me think
"Uh-oh ... what if all my 'pregnant brain moments' are really just
'like mother,like daughter moments'?!?!"


Here's what happened to my mumma (and I'm so hoping she'll forgive me for this... Paul put me up to blogging about it!!)

She had an appointment recently and the nurse asked her if anyone in her family had breast cancer.
"Yes, my grandma did," my mum said.
"Which side?" The nurse asked.
-long pause-
And then, "I don't know which side."
Nurse: "I mean your mothers side or your fathers side?"

Ok, I'm laughing all over again just writing out the story. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad to totally become like her... at least life would continually be happy - right!? :)

Note to the blogger FIRE HUNT - thanks for all the comments you leave!! I have tried getting to your blog but it doesn't show up on your profile!! Is that on purpose?! Just wanted to check :)

This was meant to be a family secret, Jessica!! You know I am a super intelligent woman, but I have to tone my brain cells down to deal with the rest of mankind! I have NO idea where you get your weirdness from!!!
