Baby Name Reveal!

Baby Name Reveal!

I am now 32 weeks pregnant.  We were elated to find out we were pregnant earlier this year, then found out baby was a GIRL back at about 16 weeks.  It took quite a while for us to decide on a name.  Our ideas included everything from traditional to more modern to totally unique names.  That being said, we found the name that we believe fits our baby girl perfectly... and the meaning is very special to us.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyB7O5-P1PI   Thank you for sharing in our joy once again.  We're so excited…Read more …
Pregnancy Journal Update: 7 Weeks

Pregnancy Journal Update: 7 Weeks

Date: 4/12/16 *1st trimester* 7 weeks This week kicked my baby-loving butt!  With every week that passes, I feel more/new/different symptoms and get on a different food kick. It’s still very surreal that we’re actually, finally having a baby {in November, which feels like years away at this point}. I did find a new pair of nice winter boots on clearance and bought them… because next winter, I’ll be carrying a baby either inside me or in a car seat… so we don’t want mama slipping and falling!

Expectations vs Reality

Hubby and I got married just over a year ago.  Our honeymoon wasn’t a walk on the beach, literally or figuratively.  We got married, then spent our honeymoon attending the wedding of some of Hubby’s good friends in another state.  The only way to financially afford a honeymoon and a cross-country wedding trip in the same year was to make the two trips one – so we did.  We flew out two weeks after our wedding, spent a few days visiting Hubby’s old stompin’ ground {where he went to college}, road tripped for…Read more …

Finding God’s Peace in the Midst of Life’s Pain

I know they say not to cry over spilled milk, but what about crying over scraped cabinets?  I haven't shared anything faith-based with you guys lately, but God smacked me in the face with a lesson this weekend and I have really felt it on my heart to share!  Have you ever struggled with finding God's peace? I have been refinishing the kitchen cabinets for our new house.  This process has not been a quick one - I started with hours upon hours upon hours of research {ahem, thank you Pinterest}.  I cleaned…Read more …

I Can’t Wait for Patience!

Last night as we were vegging at home, Munchkin asked if he could have ice cream {I may have bribed him into helped him realize he should be eating all his dinner with a conditional offer of dessert}.  Ten seconds after he finished eating dinner, he wanted to cash in on the dessert offer.  I told him he could have ice cream, but he had to wait a few minutes.  As he was watching the book-turned-movie he had picked at the movie store, I was cleaning up from dinner and trying to accomplish a few…Read more …
