Good things in November.

I can still see my feet.

I started November with this picture of my belly, taken on Halloween. I wore that sweater again on Monday. Let’s just say that it doesn’t fit quite so well. Everyone at work kept saying, “You really popped over the holiday!” It wasn’t because I ate too much turkey, sadly. My boy is just getting so big. Alas, the sweater is just not that flattering anymore. I thought about taking a comparison picture, but the sweater is in the wash, so it will have to wait a few days. And then never be worn again. For the record, I can still see my feet. I just have to lean a bit.

Some business for today: Hannah Faith, Tamara, and Dena won the Atticus mix CDs. They have been notified. If you still really want one, perhaps you should consider bribing me in some way. Like, telling me top secret surefire ways to make a baby come out.

Here are this month’s good things. I always post a lot about food, but this month, the list is mostly food. hee hee hee. If you made a list, be sure to link it in the comments. I love reading other people’s good things.
