day 30: that's all she wrote

tis the final day of november... the final day of this NaBloPoMo experiment. i figured i would have given up within the first week or so but i've survived. sure, some (many) of my posts were pretty lame but i made myself reconnect day after day. it was a fun ride and now i'll be hibernating for a bit to shake this nasty cold bug that i picked up last weekend.

for all those that are interested, an end of the month update of sorts...
- my maternity wardrobe still sucks but i don't care anymore. i have only about 10 weeks to go so heck, bring on the burlap sack.
- we still think way too much about toddler toys and free stuff.
- MANY stuffed animals in northern virginia have been christened "bo bice" this month.
- emmy had the most rockin' birthday ever. and i could spend my nights with a bowl of icing, food coloring and other yummy goodness.
- mr. onk, the imaginary elephant, has been replaced by much talk of these stinky barn gnomes. now they are literate and spend their days reading books.
- random pom-pom #5 has been identified as a... penguin. i think emmy believes that ALL pom critters are penguins.
- memes make for easy blog fodder when the rest of your brain is just a shriveled up (or knocked up?) walnut.

time to dive back into that strawberry-rhubarb pie i bought today and hit the sack. hope you all survived the month too.

p.s. - don't forget to break open your advent calendars tomorrow! yum! (seriously, how have i not gained like, 50 pounds by now?)

    Congrats on the experiment! Seriously, I don't know how anyone can write everyday. It's admirable.

    Emmy has the most creative imagination! I mean -- Bo Bice? That is still cracking me up.

    Hooray! You did it, you actually accomplished the challenge, congratulations! You deserve that strawberry rhubard pie, enjoy!
    Wow, only 10 weeks to go, hope it goes quickly and you keep on feeling great, please take care.

    woohoo! You did it! Bo Bice... that's some American Idol guy, right? (I'm so sadly out of pop culture)

    I freakin' love the barn gnomes. I'd like one for Christmas, please.
