still laughing

So I was looking on Craigslist today at yard sales in the area because I'm determined to find some good furniture and stuff for the baby!

While looking, I about died from laughing when I came across this ad from the lovely town of Nauvoo....only in Nauvoo.
I'll list it word-for-word considering they apparently don't care about listing their address AND phone number for the entire world to see!

Here goes:

We are having a yard sale this week end 9 to 11 344 2nd street Nauvoo Al 2056975023 next week will be Nauvoo car show we will be selling cake, fried pies, ice cream,and drinks so will you are at the car show come by and pick up some thing good to eat, or drink

So.....apparently the only punctuation they know is the comma.
Don't forget about the yard sale AND car show this "week end"!!! Oh, and while, I mean "will" you're at the car show (which of COURSE you're going too, right!?!?!) you will have to get "some thing good to eat, or drink" (no period....because what's a period anyways??)

Oh, I could go on and on about other things that make me laugh, but maybe that's enough for now.

Well, Happy Thursday!!

Week 16

How far along: 16 weeks

Size of baby: 3-5oz, 4-5 inches (crown to rump)....bigger than a softball!

Total weight gain: Well as of my doctor's appointment last week, I've lost a total of 5lbs.

Maternity clothes: Pretty much wearing them all of the time. Gonna have to start looking for some pants that are bigger than the size 2s that were given to me...

Gender: Still waiting on June 2pm to be exact!

Movement: I'm pretty sure I've felt some flutters here lately. At least I tell myself that it's the baby I'm feeling =)

Sleep: Still sleeping A LOT!!! However, my baby book says not to sleep on your back anymore, which sucks bc that's my favorite! I've tried to start changing that habit now, but I haven't been doing so well....

What I miss: Being able to ride a roller coaster or do other daring summer activities! I've really wanted to do something like that lately, and then realize I can't bc I'm prego!

Cravings: Cheese puffs! I was laying in bed one night and could taste them! Therefore I went out and bought some the next day!

Symptoms: Still some nausea, and my hips and lower back have also been killing me lately. My lovely chiropractor/family friend told me several weeks ago that I'd start experiencing some pain around this time due to my body beginning to stretch out and prepare for delivery over the next several months.

Food aversions: None really....

Milestones: Finding an "original" flavored toothpaste, which allows me to brush w/out gagging-on most days.
