Today is the start of my 35 weeks as I sit here rubbing my big belly. I always joke around to Justin to feel how 'hard my abs are'. It's crazy, I feel like I have a little boulder attached to my body. As crazy as this may seem, I'm going to miss being pregnant. I love seeing myself in tight shirts with my bulging belly.
I mean, how many times in a woman's life can we embrace a full, round big belly? I also will miss Kie kicking me, even when his little foot gets stuck in my ribs.
So this past weekend went so good. (Well, as good as it can go for a 34/35 week pregnant woman.)
Saturday morning we left for Galveston, it was almost a 4 hour drive. But surprisingly it went well. We didn't even turn on the radio all the way up there or back. We just enjoyed good quality conversation. I know I see Justin everyday, but sometimes you can get stuck in a routine. And I think the road trip just gave us sometime to have good quality talk. We also took our time getting there because every hour or so I had to stop to stretch my legs/go the bathroom.
Anyway, we got to Galveston and it was so beautiful! I hadn't been there since 2005 (for a cruise). I guess I was expecting the worse because I'm use to the beaches in Florida, the Caribbeans, and Mexico.
Now, Texas beaches aren't amazing, but they were pretty! I think we went at a great time in the year/season because it was cooler and less humid. And there was no seaweed :)
We met up with all my family and I introduced Justin to some people he hadn't met (family I see once every 2 years or so). And while everyone went to get ready for the rehearsal dinner on a yacht!! We went to dinner together on the Seawall, at Fish Tales. It was delicious and definitely fulfilled my seafood cravings! We missed the rehearsal dinner because I wasn't sure being on a boat for 4 hours was ideal for me. Luckily I heard I didn't miss out TOO much because it was pretty wavy and crowded.
That night Justin and I had the whole Galvez Hotel to ourself! There were a few other wedding parties and a woman's 90th birthday party that we thought of crashing but instead we walked the beaches and spent some great time together. <3

We ended up going to bed at 9pm! Haha! How sad is that? I swear, 9pm felt like 12am! I guess God is just getting me ready for NO sleep soon :)
Then Sunday, (10-10-10) we got up and had breakfast with all our family and friends. And we even had a Seaside Church Service. We did the Lord's Supper, sang, prayed and had a small devotional. It felt so good! I love church. And having church with all the people I love and cherish most felt amazing! I love my sweet God. I know I don't deserve His love, but wow am I so grateful for His grace.
After the service we spent the afternoon on the beach, playing! And then went to a late lunch with dad and all my siblings on the beach.
