Presents, Friends and Free Pizza – Friday Joy

Posted on: October 7, 2011

I came home from the store on Wednesday to find a nice little UPS box on my porch. When I opened it up, this is what I found ::

My friends, Leah and Amy, got me a rockin’ cool post-pregnancy gift. It’s a water belt used for running. You can’t see in this picture, but in addition to the awesome water bottles, there is this front pocket for your ID, keys, phone, etc. It’s a runner’s dream. Now I am even more super excited for my first post-Joseph run!

Then yesterday, I posted this picture with the caption “For all you curious minds, here’s my octo-mom rivaling, are you over due, must be twins, huge 36 week belly”ย ::

It was my tongue in cheek way of poking fun at all the crazy comments I’ve gotten lately. Because, dude, they have been rolling in daily. And while the comments are more face in palm than hurtful, reading so many sweet comments from my facebook/twitter friends really made my day.

Then, to round off the day, I scored us a free Domino’s pizza for dinner last night, thanks to Jill. And who doesn’t love free pizza and a night off from the kitchen?!


What Friday Joys do you have to share?

Love the running belt! How awesome. I had no idea they made things like that. And can I just say, you are glowing and beautiful. ๐Ÿ™‚


You look awesome, Sarah! And definitely ridin’ low- not too much longer, I’ll bet! ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy your first post-Joseph run!

Glad yesterday was a good day! I hope I look as good as you when I’m pregnant!

Hey hot mama! Just be glad it’s not your rear that gets 3x its size like mine does! LOL!

You look fab!! What a blessing to have amazing, great friends :).

That is awesome!! And girl, you look so great. This comments can be pretty brutal, but I love your attitude about them. And have I mentioned that you’re totally inspiring me to start running? ๐Ÿ™‚

What a great gift. I know you will be looking forward to putting it to good use! By the way you look awesome and I always like seeing that great smile of yours!!

I ran across your blog awhile back, not sure how, but I’ve been following you often and I am so glad to see a belly photo! You look beautiful and I’m excited to hear about your little boy. You are very inspiring and encouraging to me in my faith. Thanks for all you do!

Thanks for all the sweet comments ladies!

Jodi – you should talk to Kelsey {@mrsdexter / mrsdexter.wordpress.com}. She has done the couch to 5K.

I would love to pass out small index cards to everyone I encounter that have “what not to say to a pregnant lady” suggestions on them. Saying something about her size would definitely be on there. I understand that some people are naive about pregnancy (when I told my best friend at around 3 months that I had started showing, she was shocked because she thought women didn’t start showing until 5 or 6 months – yeah right!), all the more reason to keep your mouth shut!

Your friend knows you well! Awesome gift.
We scored some free pizza, too! We got the spinach and feta and it was GOOD. ๐Ÿ™‚
