34 weeks

Well, here I am showing a little more skin than I would have expected. While pregnant. In December. Et cetera. This pool is at the hotel where we spent Christmas and where we'll be departing from tomorrow. I wanted to swim in it every day, but I only managed to make it happen on Christmas Day. The lovely bath, on the other hand, got a little more use.

Michael and I planned this trip to Vancouver as a last hurrah. I've been feeling a little too uncomfortable to live up to the original vision, but it has been lovely all the same. We've seen some of our best buddies (inlcuding a couple of the cutest kids), we both bought fancy new shoes and we (finally) ate at Bao Bei.

It's not the same as celebrating the holidays with family, but I'll take it.

We took this photo on Saturday morning (our photo shoots usually take place on Sunday afternoons), just before we drove to Courtenay to visit the cutest family around. The lighting was poor, but my iPhone pulled through, I think. I still want me a new camera, though, so I'm hoping the Boxing Day sales in Vancouver don't disappoint.

I'm starting to feel worn out, friends. My busy job, Christmas and my big belly have taken their toll, and I'm counting down the days until the holidays. I'm also counting down the days until my last day of work: January 20 (if everything goes according to plan). That's exactly one month from today. I'm in the home stretch!

This picture is courtesy of my roomie Jen. Michael is in Saskatchewan for a little visit, so I had to wrangle her (enthusiastic) assistance, especially since I missed last week's 30 week landmark. We pulled this off in record time since we were running out the door to do holiday things (attend a craft fair, buy a Christmas tree, eat some chocolate covered hazelnuts), which I hope explains why I wasn't really thinking about what to do with my thumbs.
