Nesting: It is a Real Thing

Howdy Friends!  I just got back from a week long work trip to Texas and I was so glad to get back.  It was a mix of stress/fun, but there is nothing better than being home. When I got home, I was pretty much a vegetable that couldn’t get out of bed.  I was physically and mentally exhausted from that… Read more →

Pregnancy Week 9: Baby’s First Trip

September 8, 2015.  If you haven’t noticed, I am sort of writing these posts throughout the week because I have just realized I am having a hard time remembering what happened the week before.  So sorry if they are choppy. Let’s back up a smidge to our doctor’s appointment last week.  On Thursday we met our OB and got a… Read more →

Pregnancy Week 8: Raspberry Beret

(I hope you are singing that title in your best Prince voice) August 31, 2015.  The week of our first doctor’s appointment.  Pretty excited and I am so sure this week is going to go by horribly slow. Still feeling pretty nauseous (actually VERY NAUSEOUS) and somedays throwing up would be a relief.  I have a little anxiety about this… Read more →

Pregnancy Week 7: Our Little Blueberry

August 24th, 2015. We started week seven feeling pretty overwhelmed.  There is a lot of information out there.  People who know what they are talking about and then those that aren’t the most reliable sources.  I ended up buying the Mayo Clinic’s pregnancy book.  It was written by doctors.  Matt did some research and found that What to Expect was… Read more →

Pregnancy Week 6: Finding Out

I started a pregnancy journal using a cute journal I found at Target, but decided with the pictures I would hopefully be taking, I probably would not be printing as much as I would like.  So I am going to try my best to document our journey here and create a digital scrapbook at some point.  I hope you follow… Read more →

A Small Project I Have Been Working On…

YAY!  This is so exciting!  We are both really excited to meet our little chicken nugget in early April!  There is still SO MUCH to do around the house and in life to get ready for her arrival.  I have been saving posts from the week we found out and plan to document the journey here (until I can make… Read more →

The Dirtiest Rug in All the Land

Hey folks!  I am taking a side step today from planning my super-big-project-that-I-cannot-wait-to-share-with-you to talk about a possible upgrade to another room. I have probably the most disgusting rug sitting in my living room in the whole world right now.  And it is one of those rugs that you just can’t get clean.  We all have that one thing, mine… Read more →

Purging the Shed

Even though I get to work from home, Sunday’s are so hard.  Monday’s are worse.  I told you on the last post that I was going to be spending as many weekends as I needed to start purging our house in order to get ready for our upcoming huge project.  I was able to hit our two bathrooms, as those… Read more →


Hi All.  Monday is showing the ugly side of it’s face this morning. My media has totally messed up on here and most of my pictures were deleted.  Sorry if you are trying to look at a picture and nothing shows. Trying to fix this, but I have no idea what I need to do   Read more →

Fall is here

This. Weather!  I know it is only here for a short time, but ahhh I love it.  The windows are open, the sun is shining, and the breeze is blowing. Can we bottle this up and save it for the crappy winter ahead of us? We Matt actually plans to do some work in our yard this fall, but my main… Read more →
