Turkey Trip

This year for Thanksgiving, we packed up the in-laws & out-laws & headed south for Charleston!

Such a fun & memorable trip!!!

We ate, shopped, admired the views, ran a 5K (whoop, whoop), and just enjoyed being together.


...it seems like November has come & gone, however, I am not too sad because now it's my favorite time of the year!!!

SO many fun things coming up :)

Fun filled wk ahead!

Working a 2 days work week {two snaps for that} then hitting the road for one of my favorite places on earth...


family + lots of laughter + Black Friday shopping on King St + beautiful city + memories-to-be-made = a great recipe for an unforgettable Thanksgiving!

When people ask...

When people ask me & JWB if we are excited about bringing a little baby into this world, the answer is most definitely YES but it is a million other feelings...

it's curiosity-
what will he or she look like? {green eyes like my hubs please}
what talents will he or she have?
what will be his or her favorite food?
what will his or her personality be like?
will he or she be more athletic or more artistic?
will the baby be a he or she??? :)

it's fear-
will our baby be healthy?
how do you change a diaper? kidding, no really.
how do you instill in your little human solid values & morals?

it's bliss-
creating a baby is a miracle and truly beyond me.
the moment i heard the heartbeat, i fell in love. hard.
it's a feeling i hope everyone gets to experience in their lifetime.

we still have a ways to go before meeting the new member of our family but when our day comes, i can guarantee you he or she will be one loved bebe.

get ready world, a little version of me + jake is comin' atcha :)


I am decorating for Christmas tomorrow.

oh yes.

i love this song.

November, excuse me-this year, has FLOWN by.

...I wish time would slow down because it seems everytime we blink, another month has zoomed by.

We've been busy lately with a little bit of this and that...and we are getting very excited about all of the fun events that we have planned to finish 2011 with a bang.


How about a little praise...

Our little baby is just a growing :)

I could not believe how much the little peanut had changed in just 4 weeks!

We got to hear the heartbeat, definitely gave me chicken skin :) :) :)

What a miracle life is.

God is good.

Random Thoughts

Thus far in my pregnancy, I have craved two things:

gushers & pickles.

weird, yes.


We are heading to Columbia this wknd & will be celebrating baby Saylor's first birthday.

To add to the excitement, we get to find out if we will be meeting a niece or nephew in March!
