la la land

we are back in town!

i, kathleen ann bridget horan hills, do hereby and hereon solemly swear to make one post per day to catch you up on the images and recent happenings. (and belly pics and fruit!) our trip to St. Louis was AMAZING and overwhelming.

for now, this picture of me and my a-dorable seeeester will have to suffice.

also, i would like to say, that karma-wise, i SHOULD NOT have been all braggy braggy about that whole 'non-swelling' thing. we left for STL on friday after work and i sure was a huge, puffed up version of myself by the time we got there - a kajillion hours later - quite possibly the most miserable experience of the whole pregnancy thus far. ha. there may have been some tears shed. it was so uncomfortable - we finally pulled over and i just LAID OUT in the back seat. swolled up. fo sure. that will be THE LAST of traveling for this girl.

more updates to follow.

33 weeks, 4 days (can it really be about 6 weeks away!?)

love your dress. and i'll take your sister's too.

sorry about the swelling, sounds like it really sucked. i feel bad for you, but am happy that has been the worst part of your very great pregnancy.

LOVE YOU!

i just want to mention that every dress i've seen you in has been adorable. you are really good at picking maternity clothes. i don't know if that is an actual skill, but you seem to have it!

Kat, You look absolutely adorable!!!!!
I love that dress!
I was fortunate not to have the swollen "prego" ankles!
Can't believe you only have 6 weeks left! Can't wait to see pics of Baby Hills!!!!

indeed--you look pretty not puffy! and do they make that dress in non-maternity? I think you'd have like ten people who'd want to buy it!

You're gorgeous, dah-ling! Sorry traveling was rough for you... You and I can sit around and be some swollen kids. ;) Come see on my couch! Hee hee.

You look great! Home stretch.....

Yeah, no more long car trips for you, my dear. I rode to Florida at 7 months and it was not comfy. I shifted weight from one butt bone to the other the whole time and laid down and everything. But, I never swole. Errgg....
Cute dresses! Fashionistas. Preggo and not.

You look great! Sorry about the rough trip. I remember the discomforts of flying 12 hours to Frankfurt around that same time. Yuck.

Not that you want to hear this, but I wore compression socks at night once I started feeling at all puffy during the day, and it really helped a lot. Of course, for me, it was much cooler outside...
