What's Up Wednesday?

Yesterday afternoon my friend Alaina and I grabbed iced coffees and had a nice visit as we walked around the lake.  Alaina is pregnant, one week from her due date, and will be the first of my close friends to have a baby - ever!  All of my best friends (who I've known since elementary/ high school) are currently childless, which is crazy since we are all at least 30.

Alaina will make a great tooth-fairy one day ... she already has practice.
Funny thing is once Alaina got pregnant, the ball started rolling for everyone else.  I now have many pregnant friends, and it is surreal.  I don't think it will feel real until this first baby is born, and I start seeing my friends as parents.  Times, they are a changin'.  *Don't get any crazy ideas, Christopher and I are happy to be a family of two.

In other news, we're going to see Paul McCartney in concert tonight!

And, we made a delicious lasagna the other day.  It was even better the next day, warmed up and topped with loads of sriracha.


Do your friends have kids?  How is your week going so far?

No kids in your future, eh? :) I had a baby when I was a bit younger...but that's a long, long story that maybe I will tell someday. Either way, I'm excited for when the time comes to have kids, and I'm aware of how domestic that sounds, ha ha. Only one of our friends has a kid right now - but it's bound to start happening in the next few years. Getting older is strange!

I think I am the opposite of you too...ALL my friends have kids or are at least pregnant with their first. Kinda crazy!

LOL! Love the drunken tooth fairy pic. I swear I will be a fit mother... Glad to hear the concert was so awesome!

Yum! That lasagna looks delicious!

Nearly all of my friends have kids, and many are on their 2nd by now. They definitely went in waves, though. One year I knew like 6 people who were due within a span of 30 days!
