Start of the third trimester

And I'm being incredibly selfish with my time. Here's what I won't be during during the next few months:
  • Favors for people
  • Spending time in any way that doesn't suit me
  • Doing anything obligatory in any way
Works for me!

Adam's "goulash"

Top Deck Restaurant, Reno, NV. The weekend before we found out that he'd, uh, gotten me in trouble. This goulash was nothing like anything I'd ever seen in Eastern Europe.

Put this on Facebook just now

I was telling Adam this morning that I grew up feeling like a freak, that I believed I would always be denied access to love and inclusion because of how I looked and who I was. It is because of this that I will never stop supporting equality. Good morning, haters. It's a new day. Suck it.

Jack Johnson

This man has Santa Barbara written all over him. I have a very vivid memory of driving down to Stearns Wharf and then to Santa Barbara Roasting Company very early on New Year's Day and hearing TONS of Jack Johnson.

Of course, what I didn't realize is that I was pregnant.

Hi, Jack.

One-year surgiversary

Since undergoing VSG on June 25, 2014, I lost 81 pounds, gaining back only 19 at six months pregnant. I am so happy to have been given this gift!

I made Adam promise that he won't let me become one of these nauseating mothers who only talk about their precious little offspring, who post on Facebook with copious heart icons. "You won't do it," he said, "because you're you. And you'll still be you."

I still notice dogs before I notice kids. I'm still not particularly interested in talking about kid stuff. I'm still me. And I will always be me.
