We had our 22 week check up this morning and everything is looking good! Baby is getting bigger and starting to really take over in there! Heartbeat was strong and I am starting to get those "pre kicking flutters" I think! Dr. says any time now, the flutters will be full on kicks and I will be begging for it to stop! HAHA! Baby weighs about 1 lb and is the size of a spaghetti squash!
With the Dr. signing off on another month of baby bakin', we are heading to St. Louis for the Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow! This will be our last trip until Little Linder comes in March and that's right, it's a road trip! Nothing like a 9.5 hour drive with a 5.5 month preggo lady! It will be worth it to see our extended family and friends! But in the meantime, wish us luck!

Some of you may have seen my post last week about my husband surprising me! Well he certainly did! About two months ago, Jason had told me not to make any plans for Halloween weekend! I agreed and didn't give it another thought! Fast forward to last Wednesday night, I got home from work to find a letter on our bed along with a couple of suitcases! The letter basically told me we were going somewhere for the weekend, gave me the temperatures for the unknown destination, and told me to pack up! The letter also stated that he had talked with my boss and to be ready at 11:45a the next day and he would pick me up.
So the next day a little before 11:45a, Jason walked into my office and away we went for our weekend! As we started making our way in the car ( I was thinking we were going on some sort of road trip), Jason pulled out an itinerary he put together and the first thing I saw on it was Alcatraz! WE WERE FLYING TO SAN FRANSISCO! I was beyond surprised as that was a destination I had always wanted to visit! A few hours later we landed in sunny California with me still in shock!
The weekend was fantastic! Jason had gone to a lot of trouble and planned a perfect visit that included; a prenatal massage, visit to Sausalito and Sonoma Valley, Fisherman's Warf, Ghirardelli Square, The Golden Gate Bridge, a couple of rides on the Cable Cars, Lombard Street, ALCATRAZ, a drive through Pacific Heights, and even an accidental but fun visit to The Castro District following a mistake we made on the F Line! HAHA!
It was an AMAZING weekend and great getaway before out little bundle comes in March! I feel so very lucky to have such a wonderful husband! Thank you so much Jason for a memorable trip! I love you!
Here are a few shots from the trip!....
