I'm Samalia (Sam) and I'm a challenge vet... albeit a really lazy one. Last time I slacked waaaaay off at the end after I pulled a Juno and got myself knocked up (I'm poppin' out a girl at the end of September). This time I think I'll do better the whole way through cause all the points are the things my doctor and overprotective boyfriend have been telling me I need to do! Maybe I'll finally win (probably not)!
A little about moi:
I miss booze like a kid at fat camp misses potato chips and chocolate. I'm currently hoarding Leinenkugels Summer Shandy since it won't be available when I'm able to get back on the wagon.
Sometimes I'm a Nanny.
I quote Twilight in real life... but only the really bad lines.
I like to share stories about my family- they're a pretty entertaining bunch and our holiday dinners always include bourbon, gravy, and inappropriate conversations.
The only exercise I do is kegels but I plan to start walking if Ohio's weather ever starts to get nice.
I'm moving to the suburbs this summer. I'm kind of excited because boyfriend (aka mr. doodle) lives on the NKY version of Wisteria Lane.
Oh! My favorite book is The Secret History by Donna Tartt and/or the HP Series. Or anything by Christopher Moore.
Yay for new challengers and Lisa's bike bragging (I'll have to start walk bragging or something)! I have to go look for birth classes and maternity clothes now. Any suggestions for good maternity wear websites?
Hey Sam! We haven't hung out in crunk in a long time. I see that you have been very busy! I can't agree more with what everyone has already said about maternity clothes. Borrow them whenever you can. I borrowed most of mine from a friend and just added what I really needed to buy. Stretchy pants are your friend. I had success in finding some at JCPenney and Target. Additionally, as long as you don't mind second hand stuff maybe see if you can find any consignment shops or sales in your area. I never would have thought of that if someone hadn't suggested it to me. Sometimes you can find nice stuff at great prices. (The same goes for little kid clothes. I know you'll probably get lots of new baby stuff for presents, but once those are outgrown and the little one is into everything - and making a mess of her clothes - remember consignment sales.)
