Have your cake and eat it, too. (Or gag on it. Your choice.)

We're headed to MO early tomorrow morning. We're going to E's grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary party deal. It should be interesting to say the least. I mean, I love a good family drama, but I don't think I'm ready for this level of magnitude. But, hey, we've never been to Missouri (or misery as E calls it when we joke around) together. We've never been to Mississippi or Arkansas (we're driving through both to get there). It'll be new, that's for sure!

Of course, I haven't packed a thing. Well, that's not true. I packed the kid's bags. But, not a thing for myself. I can't find the motivation. I think because I'm in that in-between stage (not complaining! just stating a fact here! I'm glad I'm far enough along to be in the in-between stage...) and nothing really fits. Well, the maternity clothes fit, but they just make me look fat. Not pregnant. That's the way every pregnant woman wants to look, right?

Well, I can assure you, the looking fat isn't due to my birthday cake intake. As blasphemous as it sounds, I only had 1 tiny piece of my own birthday cake. Just one. I couldn't even finish that one because of my morning sickness that day.

That's okay, though. I'm pretty confident that the kids spit on it anyway.

Aw, that's cute! Sorry you didn't get to eat much of it though!

I'm assuming you're going about the same way we go when we go up to Missouri. No interstate, so be prepared for lots of little towns! It's fairly pretty in some places, but nothing interesting to see.

2. the last line

Safe travels!

That's cute about the kids spitting on your cake! Made me LOL! I hope you all have a safe trip and hopefully there's not TOO much drama in misery!
