In which I Babble Incessantly

Hi! Here's a totally unflattering picture of me!

(Note: Please do not click on this picture to make it bigger. MY FAT FACE WILL EAT YOUR FACE. IT IS COMING FOR YOOOOOOUUUUU!!!!!!)

This is what you wear to a career fair five days before your due date. I met with career services last week to discuss my resume and before I left, I posed the REAL question of the day...what do I wear? All of the literature recommended a suit and there was NO WAY I was purchasing a maternity suit for one day of use, five days before D Day. She recommended a business-professional looking shirt and to add a pearl necklace and earrings to make it look cuter. So, I still had to buy something, but it was way cheaper than a new suit. Although, it was painful to shell out money for another maternity shirt when I am soclose to being NOT PREGNANT ANYMORE, HALLELUJAH.

Also? The career services lady apparently told THE ENTIRE STAFF about me coming today, so when I checked in, the lady behind the computer was all, "Are you the girl whose 5 days away from her due date???" When I admitted to it, she and another lady went nuts making jokes and complimenting me. It was like I was famous. Although, best as I could tell, I was also the ONLY pregnant lady there.

So that's me. Fat and all at 39 weeks and 2 days. It's almost time. Our bags are packed (mostly...except for the zillion things I have listed as "last minute" on our packing list) and I am going to continue going into school to work on my internship until it is TIME. I also downloaded "99 Perfectly Relaxing Songs" for $.99 from Amazon today (Thanks Slickdeals!) to go on the iPod to play during labor. We're doing more laundry than I ever knew possible because I am desperate to get all the sheets! and pillow cases! and towels! clean. We also have an awesome new baby quilt that is getting washed AS WE SPEAK and dude, I need to remember to take a picture of it because it is so cute with the trains and the blueness and I sure do love knowing people who can sew. (Thanks Aunt Philly and family!)

I have no good way to end this post. It's like a status update with a terrifying picture. I hope that's okay. Because it's all I can do right now.

Edited to add: I actually put this outfit back on and took the picture about 10 minutes ago. My hair and make up looked better this morning, I promise. I just figured I should get a picture of me looking decent while pregnant when we still had the chance.

You are TOO CUTE! Wish I could've seen you in all your cuteness. Hope the interviews went well.

You can always use the maternity clothes next time. :)

Hope everything went well!
