27 weeks: Kiss That 2nd Trimester Goodbye

So there it is. The end of my second trimester. That was fast...said no pregnant woman ever.

How Are You Feeling?
I kept waiting for that magical, mystical second trimester energy boost to show up and guess didn't. I feel like I did in my first trimester only less like I'm going to vomit any second. I wake up tired and feel like I'm dragging a huge medicine ball around...and that's because I am. The winter weather broke this week and in addition to being tired I'm now hot ALL the time. 70 degrees in February? Ugh! Okay that is the end of my rant for the week!

So Drama Mama Where's the Drama?
The Phillips Arena gig was a little stressful. I mean anytime I have to wear anything more than leggings or slippers it's stressful.
You can't even tell I'm pregnant in that dress!
We all had technical issues but we carried on and in the end just had fun, plus the Hawks won, what could be better. The Phillips Arena staff, Theatrical outfit staff and the cast were all great. With any gig there can be any number of mishaps but it's the people you go through it with that make all the difference. 

Sidenote: I squealed like a preteen girl when I saw Jeff Teague in the hallway,  so I've lost major cool points. 

I Won, Again!
So on Friday, on the very last day of my 2nd trimester this happened. I won the Aurora Theatre's audience choice award for best lead actress for the 2015/2106 season.

Yahoo, a chance to wear that blue dress again. I was surprised to say the least I just thought it was a fundraising gig not an awards ceremony. I stumbled through my acceptance speech but most importantly I wanted to thank Aurora for hiring me, of course, but also for striving to create a great place to work for all. When you have "relaxed and happy" workers (I may have said that one too many times) it tends to spill over into other areas of their life. Not only am I pregnant, but so is Aurora's company manager and education coordinator. We are weeks apart from each other. I tell everyone I know not to drink the water there!
