Are You Ready for Some Football?

We had a wonderful weekend that was fairly busy...but we were also able to squeeze in some much needed rest!  Thank goodness!

Saturday evening we were invited to an event with some of Matt's co-workers called Steamfest.  It was held a little south of the city on the Cuyahoga National Valley Scenic Railroad.  We were able to ride an actual steam engine about 30 minutes south to Akron, Oh, enjoy some yummy apps and drinks (well, I ogled them), and return to the station with delish desserts.

The only downside of the night, I had to dress up.  About a week before I picked out three potential dresses that I already owned that I figured would work.  STUPID.  STUPID.  STUPID.  I couldn't even begin to zip one up, the other one looked hideous, and this is the one I had to wear.   


People, I am massive.Wearing a dress instead of sweat and jeans definitely made me look 1,000,000 X more pregnant that before.  And my boobs.  Oh my boobs.  The cleavage could not be concealed.  I decided to wear a pashmina most of the night because I was just that embarrassed.

Note to self:  try on outfit more than 20 minutes before you have to leave. 






My back hurt insanely bad in this pic.  I did not anticipate the amount of standing I would have to do in heels.  Lesson #2 learned.



Sunday we were all hopped up on adrenaline for our first NFL weekend!  We're big college football fans, but we definitely enjoy the NFL as well.  I'm a Bears fan while Matt is a lover of the Colts.  We were meeting our friends for the 4 o'clock games though which included the Eagles.  One of our friends is from Philadelphia so I made these special treats for him.  Too bad it didn't help them win....



They were delicious :)  I seriously cannot get enough Oreo truffles.  Where my life was before I found these babies....I will never know.  And I don't even want to know again.

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

And don't forget to check out my giveaway going on RIGHT NOW

I had that same dress dilemma back in May when I had that wedding to go to and my maternity dress was too huge and the others were too small, remember??!?!?

But, regardless, I think you look beautiful! And those boobs! WOW, those boobs.

You look great! But I know what you mean about the boobs! It's like "where did those puppies come from?" It's kind of hard to hide them at times ....

I just stumbled across your blog and I saw you live in Cleveland! I live about an hour south of Cleveland and I previously had relocated to Indianapolis (now back in Ohio). Congrats on your little girl, you look amazing!

Good luck with your pregnancy :)
