What's your tell?

So my week off didn't go exactly as planned as far as blogging goes but I promise to make it up to you.




One of my favorite movies is Maverick. I love this movie. Jodie Foster is not usually one of my favorites but in this movie I love her. Bret and I have been fans of poker long before it was popular to like poker. We watched the World Poker tour before most people even knew what a river card even was.



In poker as in most things people have a tell. A tell is something that you do or don't do that gives you away when you are bluffing or trying to hide something. It may be holding your breath, darting your eyes, coughing, or even sweating.



My tell has always been alcohol. No I don't mean that when I start to drink I start to tell. I mean that when I don't start to drink people guess my bluff. Sit at a dinner table with a group of friends and order a glass of water and they will all at the same time guess.....






that....








you....








are...






Yep...that would be a cross on the line. I took this picture with my phone and emailed it to Bret since he was on call that night and of course I couldn't wait to tell him later.

Needless to say going home for a week with family, friends, and a wedding it was going to be a hard time to not let my tell show. Not to mention my past experiences with being in a wedding while pregnant...yeah that was fun.

You will be happy to know that I did not pass out and for the most part no one figured out that I am pregnant. The wedding was amazing, the bride looked so pretty, Palmer decided that he did not want to walk down the isle, Emily was perfect and danced so long she got a blister, and I fit into the dress with minimal problems and had a great time inspite of the fact that I was the ONLY sober person at the entire wedding. I left my camera in KS and it is being mailed back to me so you will have to wait for pictures.

To any family that read my blog and are finding out for the first time...I apologize for not telling you in person but there just didn't seem like there was enough time while we were home. Bret wanted to be sure to tell his mom first and that didn't happen until we were packed and literally sitting in the truck saying goodbye. BTW she took it pretty well.

So our crazy life in PA is getting a little crazier. There is so many things that I don't have answers to (like where in a 2 bedroom apt we are going to put this baby or how we are going to afford daycare) but we are excited and hoping that December will be here before we know it. Things are still pretty early but we are hopeful for a very uneventful 3rd pregnancy. See I told you I would make it up to you!
