Hello beach, How I have missed you so!

First let me just get off my chest that I didn't post yesterday because I was way too busy having a nervous breakdown. What you might ask would trigger such a horrible thing? How about when your husband goes out of town for business and comes back with a new car. Yes, I know he is the King of impulsivity and it makes me crazy. Impulse for me, buying a $100 pair of shoes and knowing I shouldn't have spent money so foolishly, him, coming home with a new Saab when we'll be having a new baby in 6 months. I need to stop talking about it before I send myself into a new fit of rage..."In sickness and (mental)health..." Damn vows.

On the lighter side, we did it! Booked and paid for, our trip! We leave March 17 and are going to Riviera Maya Mexico for a 7 day all-inclusive. Should we be spending money on a vacation like this? Probably not, but we figured it'll be years before we can possibly do it again. So Hooray! We are staying at the Iberostar Quetzal, the same place we honeymooned 4 years ago. It is so beautiful there I cannot wait to go back,with my little Mason in tote. I feel really good about taking him somewhere really special before the new baby comes. So there you have it! The extreme highs and lows of a hormonal pregnant woman. Enjoy!

Dude! A SAAB AND the beach!!!! Remember that whole thing about, oh good, I don't have to hate you b/c you have stretch marks? Well, I take it back, I totally hate you! I luv SAABs! I have had a test drive with them twice now and ended up buying something else for some odd reason. What color is it? I'll make you a deal, tell me it's not a convertible and I won't hate you a lot (just a little).

I won't even look at that frickin' thing it makes me so sick! I think it is black. But the beach...for 7 days I'll pretend the stretch marks don't exist!

Ms. Mamma said...

Pedro! You could have had my beautiful, mint condition Saab, Edgar Allen Poe avatar and all! I would have given you a killer deal and then Glammy could have gotten her Cross Country! Hey Annie, I say order every single one of those belly bands. Or maybe you should go on a major spree to A Pea in the Pod or something...At least a black Saab is a very sexy Saab, especially when there's a blond driving it. :)

Becky said...

wow i guess all hubbys are the same ...my friend, her hubby went out and bought a volvo with out her knowing...they didnt speak for weeks!!! by the way he regrets it everyday!!lol

Isabel said...

At least it's a cool car. Good luck with that.

And isn't that near where I went this summer? We were in Tulum, and I'm pretty sure that's the same area. YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A GREAT TIME AND I'M SO JEALOUS AND MAYBE EVEN HATE YOU A LITTLE FOR IT. But mostly I'm just happy you guys get to go. Good for you!

AnnieM said...

Thanks for the support you guys! At least I know I am not over-reacting!

Justin would be taking it BACK!!!!!!!

Pedro said...

I don't think its fair to "air the dirty laundry" in such a one sided fashion, so I'm going to take this opportunity to explain my premise for my purchase.

I'm the sole provider for my family as my wife is a stay at home mother (by choice). I, on the other hand, have worked hard at some really crappy jobs out of necessity rather than choice straight out of college to provide everything that we have.

Since our marriage almost 5 years ago, I have had used and in some cases used up cars always putting everyone else's needs before any of my wants. I have always loved the turbocharged SAAB's and came upon a great deal that afforded me the ability to fulfill a want at a minimal cost (really none) without sacraficing anything in the process.

Am I wrong for doing something for myself here? I work 6-7 days a week, often times 10-12 hrs/day...I don't have a blog, and I have very few close friends because I have so little free time. Maybe I'm way off here (often the case), but everyone is entitled to do the things that make the day-to-day seem a little less monotonous

AnnieM said...

All together everyone...boo hoo! How about some shoes, a watch, basketball game tickets, but a CAR??? Someone needs a big fat dose of reality, no?

Ms. Mamma said...

Are you sayin' your wife doesn't work hard?;* And why do you feel the need to justify your purchase to a bunch of bloggers, prego or not? I say you deserve a nice ride mostly because you look silly driving the white wonder. It's like an NBA player driving a Pinto. You kids play nice over there, um k?

Pedro said...

Ms Mamma -

I was laughing my ass off when I read that at 7am this morning. White Wonder...outstanding, from now on White Wonder it is! Seriously though, I know how hard Ann works. I would have to say that her job is far more rewarding than mine which juts pays the bills.

You guys are crackin.me.up! Not that you asked for MY opinion, but here it is. Pedro...you're right....you deserve to be able to buy nice things for your family. But! Don't you think you should have at LEAST discussed it first? And Annie...he DOES provide for you and Mason, he IS a hottie, and it IS a SAAB. lmao Seriously....Justin bitches at me all the time b/c of my impulsiveness so I have NO ROOM to comment on this one. And DOOD!!??? You're going to Mexico and I am super duper insanely jealous/on the verge of hating you right now! I KNOW you guys will have a kick ass time! Good luck!

Christy J said...

How big is this car? Will it comfortablly fit 2 car seats in the back?

And my argument would be if you are working 6-7 days a week, often times 10-12 hrs/day... do you REALLY have time to drive a new car?

LMAO!!!!

Silly Hily said...

For real, you guys just made my day! I am literally laughing.my.ass.off over here at yall!
I really can't comment like you would want me to girl b/c if my hubby came home with a BLACK SAAB I would totally be all Wheeewwww freakin' whoooooo! Who cares if we have the money! It's a SAAB and we will both look so good driving it b/c Ms.Mamma is right, SAAB's are totally sexy!
Okay, here's the deal...Pedro, she won't be mad anymore if she can go get a Bella Band in every color she wants AND get me one too.

NO?

Seriously, I totally see Pedro's side. My hubby would be the same way and rightfully so. BUT, it doesn't make you in the wrong for being concerned about such a big purchase.

Now, kiss and make up you cute kids you. :-)

Lotus said...

aPedro, you're such the MAN for what you do for family. What you and your wife are doing for your kids is the greatest gift you can give them. You rock.

However, having a conversation prior to dropping the cash is considerate. I'm sure that as much as she loves you, if you had shmoozed it just right, your wife would have been happy to see you jump into that sexy car every morning.

If my husband came home driving the BMW he's been drooling over, I would be thrilled out of my mind. It took him 3 months to research, accept the cost of, and buy his bicycle. I think it took at least a month before he gave me the wholehearted go-ahead to buy my ipod. He's NOT an impulse buyer. I don't think he's ever bought a pack of gum at the checkout stand.
