bump day - week 20 - the my chin isn't fat edition.

some of you may know that fernando made a MAJOR blunder on the weekend... he told me my chin had gotten fat.
i have deliberately not cropped my pictures this week so you all can see the chin in question. i totally accept that it could very possibly get fat... but it hasn't yet!!


and since today i took more pictures than usual trying to get a good one with my face/chin in it... here are a couple more.


front view
baby brain is not getting any better... today when i was in the shower i forgot to shave one of my armpits. so the right one is nice... left one, not so much.
at least its not visible like the day i wore my slippers to the gas station with a sun dress.

last night i NEEDED mashed potatoes. i woke up from my nap and i wanted mashed potatoes for dinner. mashed potatoes with corn mixed in and my mom's super delicious rhubarb relish. this may sound gross but it is not a new thing for me... i've been making what we called "mush" since i was a kid. it used to drive my mom nuts (probably still makes her shake her head) but if we had a roast and mashed potatoes for dinner the only way i wanted to eat it was everything all mixed up into a big ugly mess . i'm pretty sure my dad does it too. he is definitley not pregnant.... so it can't be that weird. right?

i haven't made mashed potatoes at my house since christmas of 2009. good grief they're a LOT of work! first washing the potatoes... then peeling the potatoes (i of course didn't have big potatoes so i had to peel for what seemed like forever)... then cutting up the potatoes.... then waiting for them to boil long enough that i could attack them with the potato masher... exhausting! i am going to go back to my old ways... stealing mashed potatoes from my parents house if i want them. my mom always makes a HUGE pot of them and it is just so much easier to scoop them into my ziploc dish (or bag... yes i will put mashed potatoes in a bag) and take them home to warm up the next day. maybe i sound like i'm being lazy about this... but to me i think its just smart!

I don't think this is quite what Fernando had in mind when he said he wanted to be mentioned more!
