our wknd...

Thursday after work we hit the road & headed to Cola to meet our new nephew!

Baker is absolutely PRECIOUS & already SO loved :)

next time we are @ the hospital it's for our little man's arrival, say what?! ekkkk!

Friday afternoon we hit the road, again, to get lakeside.

Saturday, Chad + Jess & Kelly + Kevin joined us for some fun in the sun!

boat rides + relaxation + laughter = recharged everyone's batteries.

30 wks.

30 wk shot:

doctor's appointment tomorrow, always excited about getting a chance to see our little fella!

no complaints right now other than B likes to nestle up under my ribs, aka, very hard to breath.

cereal...nightly ritual around 9ish
{note: in all of my years I have NEVER been a cereal eater, or any breakfast foods at that, but this baby has me knee deep in that department}

water or ginger ale with LOTS of crushed ice


fruit...specifically not citrus, more of the berry variety.

nursery progress:



lots going on this wk:

we start our birth & baby classes-excited, yet nervous about TMI.

ultrasound in the am, pics to follow.

the arrival of our nephew, Baker!
{sending lots of thoughts & prayers down to Cola!}

Yesterday was my sweet hubs 28th birthday :)

{I was out of the office all day, thus, a day late shout-out}

...those green eyes make my heart skip a beat.

We had our fun friends & family over to do a little celebratin'...perfect weather + a low country boil = a great time!

Love you handsome :)

repeat button.

i sipped coffee [vanilla biscotti to be exact] this morning on my side porch.

allow me to set the scene:

birds chirping.

freshly scrubbed fountain trickling with water.

blackberry in hand = caught up on blogs/news.

absolute tranquility & perfect way to start this fun-filled wk!

{have always loved this song}
___________________________________________ seems like we are set on 'repeat' every wknd where we blink & before we know it, it's Sunday evening!

I will say with a HUGE smile on my face that our renovation zone is starting to resemble organized chaos more than an area that an atomic bomb just imploded. sweet hubs has worked his tail off!

*special thanks to G-Bake & Shu-Shu for helping out all day Saturday!

the forecast for the next 7 days is looking ah-mazing!!!

two snaps for that time of year when we get to 'spring forward' household is loving the time change!

Happy wknd.

....after a long week, so ready to kick back & enjoy the wknd with my sweet hubs!

Factoid. music preferences have always been a bit random-from country to southern/classic rock to jazz to rap...i like it all...and certain music goes with certain moods.

today = stress
{thx hormones for making everything just that much easier}

said mood calls for some bass.

one of my all time favorite songs...

happy day.

....looking forward to getting things done around the office then a dinner party with pretty ladies :)

Happy Wednesday, xo.

I've been told...

I've been told that your third trimester is a repeat of your first...

and they were right.

Nothing sounds appetizing.

Fatigue like whoa.
bed by 8:30-9:00.

Cold-like symptoms.

hurrrrrrry up May.

Wknd recap & a shout out

This wknd was an absolute whirlwind but SO productive!

Friday night:

Me & hubs hosted dinner for Kel + Kevin followed by much needed relaxation/channel flipping.


Breakfast date then the work began...Jake = renovation zone, me = cleaned the house/laundry/yard work

Cooked a yummy dinner in our pj's & were asleep by no later than 9:00; seriously, when did we become old?!


More work around the house, showered up, then headed to Babies-R-Us to do returns & ordered a few things, yay!

Dinner with Chad & Jess.

A great wknd indeed!

Shout out to Maxie B's...check out the link to see a little feature on me & the Mr. :)

March is full of events & happiness!

...with that being said, March 1st has not disappointed.

The birds are chirping & the high today is 76.

One of my favorite verses is SO fitting for today...
"This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice & be glad in it." Psalm 1118:24

Bentley says hey!
