The brave prego!
So it is like 90 degrees outside today.. Jessika I know that's like norm for you guys, but not for me lol.. for me it is HOT. But I braved it out and went to 1890's Day. It's a festival Ringgold has every year for Memorial Day. I knew I had to go this year because they managed to pull it together after the tornado, so I put on my SPF 50 sunscreen and we went. We got there at 10:30, and met my mom and sister for the parade that was starting at 11. Chris was checking out some cars (from the car show they have), and ended up getting stuck on the opposite side of the street lol. After the parade we got some food.. I got a blooming onion.. YUM! I get it every year because I never get them any other time lol.
Then we took my sister and Grace to ride on some of the blow ups.

Chris and Grace on a different one. I wish I could do this stuff with her :(
Btw, I am 27 weeks today (HOLY CRAP.. ALREADY??).. and as you can see from this picture (that's me in the blue in the background)..
I am quite the beached whale now. I feel like I look 9 months pregnant! I didn't even start showing with Grace until I was six months pregnant.. I won't be six months pregnant until 8 days from now :( I am HUGE! I have now come to terms with the fact that Brentley is probably going to be much bigger than Grace. I've heard that's how it works.. the second is almost always bigger than the first :( I like tiny babies, like 6-7 lbs. I'm afraid Brentley is going to be like 9lbs!
Lol anyway.. We are home now. Grace is like 5 shades darker and she had the SPF 50 sunscreen on too.. me on the otherhand.. I think I might have gotten a little burnt with the SPF 50 :p It never fails. At least it's not bad.. I have been known to look like a lobster before.
Also, my school screwed me over.. I was awarded the Pell Grant, but I cannot claim it!! I am beyond p-ed off. It's a really long story, so I'm not going to go into it on here, but let me just say, I have sent an email to the head of the financial aid department asking for an appointment with her. There are several people in that office that I aim to get fired! Luckily I did get HOPE, so my classes are paid for, but because of these people's stupidity I get to stare at my $2700 (on my student profile), but never get it.. GRRRRRRRR!
