No Baby Yet!

I am now 3 days past my due date. I know it's not uncommon and that a due date is just a give or take 2 weeks in either direction kind of date. I also know I was late, my cousin had her baby late, my aunts had their babies late...lateness just runs in my family.. so I expected to be late...but it's just hard when you spend so much time counting down to some arbitrary number that comes and goes.

Also each day I'm more and more uncomfortable..which makes me feel like doing less and less stuff which makes me more and mored bored.  I wish it were nice outside so I could just go read a book outside or take Maggie to the dog park.  Instead I keep going to stores to walk around which just ends up with me coming home with a cart full of random crap. Anyway.. enough with the pity party...  I'm so lucky that I get to sit at home and relax to wait for her to come instead of being in the office. I'm lucky I have a husband who can come home often to have lunch with me during the week. I'm lucky for such good friends/family who are waiting on pins and needles for any news (and are getting none). Trust me, I know that I am one lucky lady....and so is this baby...she just needs to come and see it!

This is what has been going on this week.

I've been drinking more Raspberry Leaf Tea than I can keep track of.

I've gotten an accupressure massage, which obviously did nothing, but still felt amazing.

I discovered a brand new parking spot at my friendly neighborhood grocery store (Thanks HP Kroger!)

I've washed and folded every piece of baby clothes in existence.

I took this guy out for a fun filled day of birthday celebrations

I've been giving this crazy girl extra snuggles and attention

I've started to be mocked by my pregnancy apps

and I filled in the question mark left from last week's blog with a 40 week pregnancy picture.. 

Here is to hoping there is no week 41 picture!!!

50 West Brewing Company

This weekend we headed East with some friends for Rob's birthday to do a little beer tasting at the new 50 West Brewing Company. Unfortunately, I wasn't really able to take more than a couple of small sips of the beer for obvious reasons, but still thought I would write up a little blog about our experience there.

The brewery is located on Wooster Pike down past Hahana Beach. You walk into a nice sized and well decorated tasting room with a friendly, knowledgeable bartender and the beer selections written on chalkboards.

 Our party all ordered samplers, which were a great deal at $4.50!

Then went back and bought glasses of their favorites... also something worth mentioning, their glassware is very nice and I love when places have the right glasses to match what you are drinking. 

To the right of the "tasting room" there was more space with tables and a fireplace that I imagine will eventually be their restaurant. It was so cozy down here!

They also have a nice sized fenced in back patio that I can see lots of activity happening in when it's not covered in snow :)

There were also beer complementing snacks to much on including these spicy pretzels:

and this basket of delicious pretzel bread with beer cheese dip from Servatii's:

 To the left of the tasting room is a shuffleboard table!! So fun...with a big screen TV and a window into the brewery.

On this particular day, one of the brewers was giving tours to anyone that was interested in one. We didn't partake in the tour this time, but maybe sometime in the future.

Again, I know it's silly to write a blog post about a brewery when I can't really say anything about the beer, but we had such a nice time that I wanted to share what a neat place this is. The building, the ambiance, the employees, everything was just perfect and I can't wait to go back when I can enjoy a frosty beverage of my own :) I will say that everyone in our party enjoyed the beer and expressed interest in coming back for another little daytime hangout.

Keep up the good work guys!
