We Have a Graduate!

We Have a Graduate!

They say it over and over again but you  never know how true it is until you are living it.  Time really does go by so fast when you have little ones.

The Love Nugget just a few days old 🙂 

It wasn’t all that long ago that this little guy was just starting preschool.  Now we have a graduate!

Lactation Cookies

Lactation Cookies

Hi there!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I think I’m officially in full on nesting mode.  I woke up early Saturday morning with all sorts of energy even though I didn’t sleep great.  I went for a long walk, then spent the morning prepping a few freezer meals, cleaning, and organizing.  I was back at it again on Sunday after another long walk we ran a bunch of errands then came home to do more organizing and meal prepping.  Usually around 1:00 I’m dead tired and have take a nap but the past few days I’ve just been tackling one thing after another.  Nesting?  Yep!

One of the “meals” I prepped this weekend were these cookies that I know will definitely be enjoyed soon.

Outdoor Living… Finally!

Outdoor Living… Finally!

Hi guys!

Long time no chat!  Did you miss me?  I know I’ve been pretty hit and miss lately on the whole blogging front. It’s something that has just taken a back burner in my life.  BUT, I do miss you all and plan to try to continue on after baby is born.  I know many of you have been following my journey before and during this pregnancy so I don’t want to just leave you hanging 🙂

Speaking of baby, he’s still dancing away in my belly!  I’m over 37 weeks and patiently awaiting his arrival.  Okay so maybe I’m not as patient as I should be… Can you blame me though?  We’ve waited over 3 years to meet add to our family.  So to say we are excited for his arrival would be an understatement.  Even The Love Nugget can’t wait to meet his little brother.   Which we’re hoping will be soon!  I had a doctors appointment last Friday and she said he’s dropping, my pelvic bone is splitting and my body is beginning preparation for delivery!  I have an ultrasound this Friday so we’ll know a little more then.  I definitely feel more ready to deliver this time than with my first.   Much more relaxed and excited about labor than frightened and anxious like the previous time.  So I’m hoping my relaxed outlook about the whole thing will help my body go into labor earlier than with The Love Nugget.  Who was two weeks late…  I’m also doing a few things that have been known to help induce labor which I’ll share with you later this week.

On another note, we’ve finally finished our backyard!

A Productive, Relaxing and Fun Weekend

A Productive, Relaxing and Fun Weekend

Hi friends!

Hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend!

We took advantage of a three-day weekend at home to get some things done around the house before baby arrives.   Which really could be any day now!  So crazy and exciting at once 🙂

Anyway, Friday evening we hung around the house, relaxed and watched a movie.

Saturday I taught my last weekend class until after baby comes.  I’m going to miss the Saturday class as it’s always packed and so much fun!

Hospital Bag Must Have’s for Mom

Hi there!

Less that four weeks!  I’m on the countdown and preparing little by little.  I’ve made a few freezer meals, the nursery is just about finished and little by little I’m packing my hospital bag.  I hope to have it complete by the end of this week.  You never know right!?!

A Special Birthday for a Special Guy :-)

A Special Birthday for a Special Guy :-)

This past weekend we celebrated a certain special someone’s fifth birthday!!!!

I’m not quite sure how this little guy is already five.  Everyone always tells you to enjoy those first years as the time goes by so fast but you can’t understand it until you’re actually experiencing it.  Time definitely flies!  It feels like just yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital.

Pregnancy Update Week 32 – 36

Pregnancy Update Week 32 – 36

Eeek!  36 weeks!  I’m so ready for our little man to arrive but am having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that our little family of three is about to grow.  I mean, obviously this is what we’ve wanted for so long.  Such a long time that we’ve gotten quite used to it just being the three of us and the thought of that changing REALLY soon is making me a bit emotional.  It’s not that I’m worried about adjusting or scared just feels weird that it will never again just be the three of us.

What I Ate Wednesday

What I Ate Wednesday

Happy humpday!

I’ve been loving Wednesday’s lately.  Half-way through another week of pregnancy!  Definitely on the count down these days.  Just about 4 weeks left!  Crazy right!?!  For some reason I have a feeling he’ll be arriving a week before but knowing my luck that won’t happen….  I’m keeping my fingers crossed though!

Anyway, since it’s Wednesday I thought I’d share a day of eats for a WIAW round-up.  I don’t do these all that often these days but they are fun to do every once in awhile.  So here’s a look of eats from the other day 🙂

Breakfast – The Hubby was home so made some eggs and sausage but all I wanted was a smoothie bowl.
