17 & 30.

first up, my 17 week bump.
for those of you who have asked:
1. we are due dec. 15th
2. we don't find out what we're having, but i'm sure i'll find another little wenis when that baby pops out.
3. i don't really dish on names
thanks to my sister, hannah, for having a photo date with me.
it was fun, aside from the creepster mcCreepster who was following us around the lake in his little kia.
i was 2 seconds away from ninja kicking his bum.

**********************************************************************

and in other news.
1 week from today is a big day.
not only does harry potter come out (and yes, i'm seeing it at midnight...and yes, i'm dressing up as harry pottah...just kidding, i only have a hagrid costume...and yes, despite what people say, you can love jesus AND love harry potter.  i'm living proof)...
okay, what was i saying?
oh yes...july 15th...1 week from today...
i am turning...
yup, tis true.
it will be the day of my birth.
30 long years ago.
i am a summer of '81 baby...and proud of it.
i have mixed emotions about this big milestone, but i think for the most part...i am ready.
i mean, i guess i kind of have to be ready...right
1 more week of being a 20-something...i better live it up.
pregnant and all.

happy weekend y'all.

My sister is due Dec. 26th, she hasn't quite got an obvious bump yet so I'm excited for her to get there--it's her first :) Yay for birthdays!!! Hope you enjoy your birthday WEEK...30 can't be that bad ;) If it helps, you don't look a day past 25..honest!

  7. Since I've found your blog I LOVE IT! I didn't tell the name of my little man (7 almost 8 months old) either until he was born and it drove some people crazy!! It just made me laugh. :) Hope you've been feeling better and you look great!

    Going to vote now!

  12. Turning 30 is fab! I still don't feel like I'm 33, but I have to say that my 30's are better than my 20's. So glad you gave a shout out to Harry. We love Jesus and Harry Potter in this house too. : ) You look super beautiful in your pics, Lady. : )

  13. You are so adorable. That outfit is so so lovely.
    And we're the same age? Oh, Emily, this changes everything. Not really, and I have no idea what that means, but it surprises me. Probably because I always feel like I'm still in high school or something.

  14. Congrats! Your family looks like it has so much fun! I saw in your bio that you guys love Jesus! That's great!

  16. hello! i've been voting for you and also reading your blog daily as well as creeping on many old posts. your family is just so darn cute! i just got married a few months ago, and though i've been saying i don't want to have kids for a few years, looking at your beautiful family is kinda making me want to start popping them out immediately! haha. anyway, cute baby bump. you look nowhere near old enough to be 30 and have 6 kids. bravo to you, mrs. anderson.

  17. I cried on my 30th birthday (last year) because I got a speeding ticket in a speed trap. Yes I drive faster than the speed limit. I do not cry if I get a ticket but dang it it was my 30th birthday!!! No, I did not mention that it was my birthday to the cop because my luck I would have been arrested for something stupid like "questioning and officer". I hope yours turns out wonderful!!!

  18. 30 is nothing. It was 25 that hit me hard. Have a great time at the movies and enjoy this fun milestone.

  21. Oh my goodness!!! We have two very important things in common... we both love Harry Potter and we are both turning 30 on July 15th!! My sisters are taking me to the movie as my birthday gift and I can't think of a better one!
    I'm feeling a little behind now though since I'm working on making baby #2, and you're expecting #6!! And looking quite adorable while you do!! :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

  29. my thoughts while reading this post... in the order my brain thought them....
    " Awww she looks great! Love baby bumps.....
    Hey she has the same birthday as me!!!
    Born in '81.... hey she is only 4 years older!...
    wait turning 30... that means in 4 years I will be 30! crap and i don't even have ANY kids yet..."

    Happy early birthday from one July 15th-er to another.

  30. You look amazing! And don't worry...the 30s are FABULOUS! I'm hoping I can just stay in the 30s, I wonder how I can make that happen?hhmmmm

    ReplyDelete
  31. I just died laughing at the "You can still love Jesus and love Harry Potter" - my mom has always called it a "witch movie and witches are of the devil" lol - I sat her down and made her watch them and she now LOVES Harry Potter.

    BTW you look absolutely lovely and Happy 30th :)

  34. Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day - I sort of felt like a celebrity had. Can. not. wait. for Harry Potter. Your baby bump is adorable, and you will love being 30. I think it is a privilege to turn 30 and to really love your life, and it looks like you have a lot of life to love.

  52. Yay for HP! We're taking our oldest to see it on Saturday! It was part of his birthday present (his birthday was Monday & he had a killer HP party. You should check it out!) and part of his reward for getting through ALL SEVEN BOOKS! This will be the one and only of the movies he'll get to see in the theater and he's excited! Okay, so am I!

    ReplyDelete
  53. YAY! I am turning 30 this year too. I love finding others who are. there a sense of...comradery? like we are in it together. i never had that feeling with all my other ages. COME ON PEOPLE OF 1981! JOIN HANDS! UNITE! WE CAN DO THIS!
    I am also crazy excited about HP. I plan on making my hair curly, and then brushing it out and going old school Hermoine.

  56. Happy birthday to you, then! You better make it a good one :) My sister shares your birthday. Year and all. I'll tell you the same thing I told Her. Enjoy your 30th! Don't be sad, just look at ALL you have accomplished in 30 years of life. Seriously! See? doesn't that just make you happier about being 30 now? 'Cause it should. I am sure you have done a lot of amazingness in 30 years. Be proud of yourself, show off that fun baby tummy, and go party it up in a Hagrid costume.
