My Birthday with a Turnip

I celebrated my 34th birthday yesterday.. well actually I was blessed enough to be able to celebrate all weekend, doing one thing or another: Friday-Surprise cake with coworkers, Saturday- Lunch with Hubby, Sunday- BFF Court stopped by with a gift (a new blender), Monday- brunch with Mom and Cousin Nikki at Miss Shirley's then dinner with Hubby at Nacho Mommas.  The grand birthday finale happens at the end of the month with a show at the Meyerhoff.

And what's with the turnip you ask.. well, I am 17 weeks pregnant! Yup, go ahead and look back at all those previous posts and see if you can tell. I guess I have been "carrying small" as they say because I cant seem to see preggo in my pics. BUT, I can surely tell in my clothes.  No more regular jeans for me.  And the turnip - well, after some coaxing, I decided to take Preggo Produce Pics.  I was looking at Andie's pics in What Andie Wears and she was telling about Carolee Beckham's blog (they take awesome pics by the way) so I decided to have fun with the produce pics too.  Each week (for me that happens on Mondays), if you have a BabyCenter account (or other similar account) they will tell you the size and weight of your baby and compare it to a produce. At 17 weeks, the baby is 5 ounces big and measures 5 inches from head to rump.

Hubby and I have lovingly decided to call the baby LeeLee. I figured that worked well for a boy or a girl.  Lee was the middle name of my Grandfather and is the middle name of my Mother. 
I think that name fits well! 
I did not get a chance to buy a new dress for my birthday this year, so I just pulled out one I could find.  This is what I wore to dinner on my birthday night.  It wasnt a fancy locale, so I didnt want to be to dressy.  
I like what I came up with.

I was grateful for all the wonderful expressions of love that I got over the weekend.  I was given some awesome cards.. I wish I could read or post them all here. And I was showered with all kinds of birthday wishes on Facebook.  I really had a nice day/weekend!
