Why do vacations seem like they take FOREVER to get here and then when they finally do, they are over in a blink of an eye?! I am so glad we had the opportunity to "get away" for a few days, but man it went by fast! For those of you who don't know. . .we went to Perdido Key (Pensacola,Fl) with Jarrod's parents and his sister and her husband. We left Thursday morning and got back late Monday night. We had such a good time! The condo was really nice and spacious! We hung out at the beach and pool for most of the day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and then all went out to eat at night. All the seafood was so good! We ate at the Crab Trap, LuLu's, Flipper's and a little hole in the wall place called the Original Point Restaurant .  We also took one of those dolphin cruises one evening and it was a lot of fun! Sunday night we had family pictures taken by a local photographer. I am excited to see how those turned out! I did make a decision. . .while it was fun, it's not a trip I would take again while 7 months pregnant! The car ride was pretty uncomfortable, and we had to stop about every hour or so because of my constant need to visit the bathroom and my left leg kept going to sleep! And while the idea of laying out in the sun all day doesn't sound like a problem, for some reason I couldn't stand the heat! I got so hot so fast! Plus, it took all I had to get out to the beach (it's really hard walking in sand with already swollen feet!). I wouldn't do it again, but I am so glad we went! The weather was perfect and we got to get some r&r and spend time with the fam, so it's all good!  Thanks to Terry and Margie for everything! It's a family vacation that we will always remember!

And I got the results back from the 3 hour sugar test and some of those readings were a little on the high side again. So, I am scheduled to see a dietitian on Wednesday afternoon. I have no idea what to expect at this point. I am just hoping and praying that it isn't something drastic . . . like [dare I say it??]. .  .NO CARBS?? Hopefully she will just give me a better idea of what foods I need to start eating and what things I need to cut back on. Please send up a prayer for me, I am a little nervous about my appointment!
