it went where?!

Soo……………..yesterday morning, I walked upstairs to the bathroom to do my daily morning “weigh-in” annnd where the scale SHOULD BE was this, instead:

Apparently, my scale went on an extended vacation.

(All expenses paid, courtesy of Tim)

(Mostly related: Doesn’t Tim have awesome handwriting?)

Obviously, Tim decided to take matters into his own hands and from now until March, I will have zero clue as to how much I’ve gained or not gained, which is kind of extremely scary but at the same time?

So. Freeing.

(and I never thought I’d actually say that when it came to the scale, my love to hate you BFF)

It’s like that little mean devil is no longer sitting in my bathroom, taunting me.

It disappeared without my knowledge.

And truthfully?


Granted, I may be cursing everything under the clear blue sky come February after gaining who knows how much weight…


I might actually just learn how to live my life sans scale. Wouldn’t THAT be something?

I think so.

And so did about a million people on Facebook:

(Ok, not a million, but I don’t even think that many people liked the fact that I was preggo with the sprout. Just sayin)

Speaking of Facebook…could you go pretty, pretty please go vote for my sign on Atlanta Track Club’s page (Jessica B) – “Your runners high? It’s probably not coming…”? Puuhhllease?


Remember when I had that awesome week last weekΒ and found out that my sign, “Your runners high? It’s probably not coming…” would be somewhere along the race course during the Atlanta Marathon? Well, it was and now is your time to vote to say that mine is your favorite!

And even if you like another sign better than really shouldn’t admit that and still vote for me. I mean, WE’VE GOT HISTORY. You just don’t diss someone like that. It’s like you cheering for a school other than your alma mater. Or saying you like someone else’s apple pie better than your grandma’s.


Happy Friday, friends! Tomorrow is YAY! HAIRCUT! day. Β I added some new hairstyle pictures to Pintrest. If you haven’t weighed in on your favorite…now is the time! And Tim has a hairstyle folder now, too!

It’s a family affair.

    I told you yesterday, but this is a fantastic thing and you’ve got yourself an awesome hubby. πŸ™‚ It sounds like it was just what you needed!

    That is kind of awesome. Did you have any initial anxiety over the missing scale? I think I would.

    just voted πŸ˜‰

    the thing with the hair…i never had bangs and never wanted them until a hairdresser/stylist just took matters in her hands. that was a year ago and since then i am proudly wearing bangs (stalk me on facebook, you’ll see).
    give it a try, you may or may not like it. hair grows back so who cares if its not what you thought it would be like. the long wavy hair looks all the same to me (sorry)…

    Ask my husband what he remembers about my pregnancies and he will tell you about how in my first trimester I had a really great day and at 10:30 PM decided we should go out for ice cream (it was the end of winter) and how I *always* wanted grilled pork chops. He doesn’t remember how much weight I gained because I lost most of it right away. What your wonderful did was ensure you are making memories worth remembering and not stressing over things you can’t control.
    Even though I’m not a runner your sign made me laugh so no matter how funny any of the other signs are you sign got my vote. πŸ™‚

      JaimeLynn: thank you!!! And you’re right – it’s actually way more fun to focus on pork chops and ice cream runs versus weight. I’m slowly getting that through my head. πŸ™‚

    Just stay out of boots, gyms or any other place it is possible to pay to be weighed.

    Dear Tim,
    You rock my face off.

    Fretting about your weight while preggo = totally not productive baby growing. GO TIM!!

    Also, voted. Your sign’s my favorite, for reals.
