This weekend, the football coaching staff and their wives brought the party to our house. It was a surprise, but Korey had to tell me about it that morning in order to make me look presentable. Otherwise I would have been in my bed rest uniform which consists of pajamas or sweats and my uggs. Unfortunately no pictures, but again Ruby got some great stuff!

Mom and her fancy coffee, me with the boring decaf!
Yummy and very cute cupcakes!
All my best friends!
Mom bought about 25 pacifiers, all different kinds. She says it's important for Ruby to choose what kind she likes. Ha! That's what's wrong with kids these days!
Aunt Rachel getting some practice with sweet Jack!

This AM I got on ticketmaster.com to get tix for probably the best concert to hit Atlanta ever. (Besides Celine Dion). Reba McEntire and George Strait are coming to town on Feb 25, 2010. I was pretty darn excited, but my smile was soon turned upside down! The ticket prices are RIDICULOUS!!!!! They are either $94 or $74 plus the $13.50 surcharge per ticket. So I thought I might could justify buying the $74 ones if they were half way decent seats. But the best available were section 409, row R(Kelly, think Tim McGraw a few years ago). So then I thought ok, even if it’s crazy to pay over 100 bucks for a concert ticket, if they were way up close it would be awesome and maybe worth it. Nope. This time the best available was section 313. I don’t think so!! Seriously! These two artists have been doing this for 25 years each and have all the money they could ever need, plus they have me as a number one fan. But not anymore. I’m stepping down. I haven't missed either one of their shows in Atlanta since I was a kid. But I will not pay that to sit in the rafters!!! I’m working on my complaint letter to their tour managers right now!!! And then I’m going to delete all the episodes of Reba’s tv show on my DVR.
You, me and Ruby can just have our own little concert at the house that night. Please remember to bring your black Reba tshirt, circa 1993.

Isn't she amazing? Yes, those are her feet up at her head (and she does have all her toes, they're just cut off by the 4-D field) She's breech right now, but doc says she has plenty of time to change positions.
-Elle actually has articles and good writers
-According to Woody Harrelson who prefers organic clothing, cotton accounts for 50% of all pesticide use. I guess I'm not as green as I thought in my cotton tshirt and sweat pants. Bummer!
-The editor told me to be kind to others and myself by shopping. Ok.
-Elle Jet Setter feature was about Biarritz, France. I've been there. Not quite in Elle style, but I think it makes me cool either way.
-I've been thinking that since I'm naming child Ruby which is a precious gem I should get some jewelry as a result of having her. I found the perfect peice on page 167. Its Chopard and has 255 rubies and 57-carats of diamonds(price upon request).
-Apparently someone in the world will pay 400 bucks for underwear. Otherwise why would they market it?
-I want to see the movies The Private lives of Pippa Lee and Up in Air.
-And last-my horoscope reveals that this month is ideal to reflect on what I'd like to bring into my new birthday year (hmmm....a baby?) These people are good!

And a few words about Prozac Puppy. Does this look like rehab? I don't think so!

So begins the bed rest blog. My friend Ashleigh and best friend Kelly have made requests for daily blog entries for the next 10 weeks. And really I have no excuse not to. Besides working from my couch or bed for 8 hours during the day, the rest of my time is free. And I think this time of bed rest will be a learning experience in spite or sounding like the most miserable 10 weeks of my life. And anything that I need to do to keep little Ruby incubating and healthy will be done. So each day I'll try to post something new in efforts to voice my boredom, frustration, gratitude, or comic relief as the weeks go by.
Day 1: (Yesterday) For right now, the hospital is allowing me to work from home and I'm so grateful. Not only does it mean that I don't have to take leave, but it gives me 8 hours a day of purpose. Also, lesson learned from the weekend. When you are pregnant and on bed rest, don't look at food magazines or blogs. Everything looks good and I can't make it. But best friend Kelly and my mom came to my rescue and made me these pumpkin cheesecake swirl brownies I'd been wanting. (Yes, it took both of them to make an 8x8 dish). Delicious!
Day 2: Tonight I got to lay on the sofa and just watch Korey vaccuum. Although I feel useless, there was something slightly rewarding about that! And thank you to our friends, the Dudish's, who brought over a yummy dinner and the most adorable handmade crocheted beanie for Ruby! Can't wait for Ashleigh to take her newborn pics wearing it!

FYI-this was my senior year of college, Chi Omega semi-formal night. We went with old school attire and I do still have the amazing burgandy velvet and gold dress that I got at Goodwill. I don't think I'll be fitting into it for this years holiday festivities so it is available to be borrowed and worn with pride.

And another note on Stupid. Two nights ago she decided to eat the beautiful gold diaper bag seen below. Korey and I woke up to find it in a million little peices. Awesome. So my half price diaper bag is no longer such a deal because I've purchased two.

Second reason that today was great: Pumpkin Spice lattes(decaf of course) are now available at your local Starbucks through December 31. I will probably have too many to count between now and then. Enjoy!

I know, they aren't exactly practical, but I still loved them and could already picture the skirts, dresses, and jeans I'd wear them with. Then it hit me. I'm 15 weeks preggo. In a few months(maybe weeks at the rate I'm growing), I won't be able to see my shoes much less balance on the 3.5 inch heel. My mom who is always the encourager said to get them because I won't always be pregnant. So I wore them up and down the aisle a few more times congratulating myself on finding such a great deal on great shoes. (Retail price $232, TJ Maxx price $49.99). Then my conscience kicked in. No, I won't be preggo and fat forever, but from February on I will be toting around a baby. 3.5 inch heels aren't exactly the best mode of transportation for baby carrying for a klutz like me. Sadly, I removed the booties and set them back on the shelf for someone else to enjoy. Nice of me, huh?
Don't worry, I don't plan on resorting to sweat suits and flats for the rest of my life, so I compromised and bought another Steve Madden bootie with a 2 inch heel for an even cheaper price. And I'm slowly reaching a happy place after settling for second best.*
*This does not mean that I will not make every other day trips to TJ Maxx to see if the Fryes have been moved to the super clearance rack so that I can justify their impracticality.

1) That means one less blog to surf over to and see if it's been updated every night or two
2) I think I'm really good friends with these people even though I've never met them or I haven't seen them in years because I read their blogs
3) I'm usually too embarassed to tell them that I stalk them so that I can get the log-in
4) The reason for blogs is so that random people can read about your life (ex. My parents, sibiling and best friends already know what's happening In the Mobb)

I was in France with my parents. We stayed in Marseille, but found out that the Tour de France was coming through a small town not too far away. Or at least we thought it wasn't far. I researched on the internet and Dad and I took off early one morning to catch the Tour. After an hour train ride we started looking for signs and buses to take us to our destination of St.Remy. No signs and no buses. We finally found someone that had heard of the town and pointed us in the right direction and said we could walk. So we started walking. After about 2 hours of walking along side the road of rural France, we saw a sign that said 17km. We were determined to make it but could not make it 17 more km. So Dad put his thumb up and we hitch-hiked. I have never hitch-hiked before and I probably won't ever again, but it was worth it. We made it to town with about 30 minutes to spare. After hours of traveling in the hot sun, the cyclists came thru town in about 30 seconds and it was over. Well worth it though! Definitely a once in a lifetime experience! To treat our hard work, we had a late lunch at this amazing little restaurant:
And if you're ever in the South of France, find St.Remy. It's a beautiful little boutique city with great hotels, shops, artwork and countryside! I wish I was there now!
-sorry the pics are small, I need my graphic designer sister here to help me when I blog
