Why I haven't blogged in a while...

Here's a hint.

Here's another one. Have you got it yet?

It's hard to want to blog when you are a nauseated pile of a person. (I have silently kept up with all of you, though!) I started to feel a little better when we left on our trip to Utah right before Christmas. At that point I didn't think it wise to publish online that we were away for two weeks. ......you know, all those lurking stalkers waiting to rob my house and steal all our valuables, like..... our 19 inch television.
Anywho, I have quite a bit to catch you up on. It's coming soon.
Oh, and due date for now: July 16. Two weeks before Jake takes the Bar Exam. Mwa ha hahahahahaha!
We wanted a chance to tell our family in person during our trip before announcing to all of blogdom.
I'd like to leave you with some advice I'll certainly apply to my life until after July. Very wise. Very wise. Now after July, it's back to street performing.

I knew it! One day I was thinking to myself "It's weird that Maren hasn't blogged for so long...Hmmm, I wonder if she's pregnant!" You can even ask Christian, I said it out loud to him! Oh, Congrats Maren! I'm so excited for you!!! Why do I keep leaving town every time you're in town? I miss you!

I'll add mine to the long list of congrats! I was beginning to get a little suspicious. Glad to hear that the nausea is subsiding. That's my least favorite part of pregnancy.

WooHoo! Another baby on the way. I just have to ask though... how the heck did you get so creative? The way you announce, the way you blog, I am quite jealous of the creative you! It was so fun to see you all. Tessa is such a sweetheart. I hope you guys make it back before the arrival. We love you guys! Take care, and eat as much as you can for us all, the babe deserves mucho treats!

rosebud said...

OK!... This is all very convenient isn't it? Now you are out of the 5k in May. But let me tell you, after that little bun is done baking, I have a Jillian Michaels DVD that will kick your little booty! :)

Maren said...

Rosebud- I would have done ANYTHING to get out of that 5k in May! :) Actually, I have one I signed up for the beginning of February. Um, I'd better get moving so I can at least hobble all the way.
I will need Jillian Michaels.

Shanna said...

I know I already told you when you were here in Utah, but CONGRATULATIONS! I'm so excited for you. Your life will get even crazier than it is now, and you'll love every second of it! I'm excited for you, and can't wait to see the little one! Love ya!
