terrific trips / wedded bliss

So here is the little shack my husband took me to celebrate our last mini vacation as just the two of us for, probably, forever. It was glorious. We got there early so we could take advantage of that pool from heaven and smartly left our sunscreen in our bags going to the room. We now strongly resemble lobsters. But there were pina coladas and burgers and each wonderful thing!   And then after getting […]

baby #1 / bump / pregnancy

This week is especially significant to me because I have been reading that if she was born now, she would have at least a chance at survival. I find that so crazy amazing! Ironically, it’s also the legal abortion cut off date in most states. Greg showed me this picture of a baby born at 24 weeks (who didn’t survive) but lived an hour and is clearly, miraculously formed. It’s so amazing to think that our […]

family days / mmmm meals / terrific trips / wedded bliss

So, we went to Napa last weekend and had a meal or two. I’m not really sure where to begin so let’s start here. These ribs were amazing. And no, they were not all for me. Stop judging, gosh.  They literally fell off the bone and into my mouth and in there all my little buds had a party. They partied so hard, I had a my whole pile finished and completed only to look […]

baby #1 / bump / pregnancy

Greg and I have been having a morning debate on whether or not we’ve ever seen this supposed 10.5 or 11.5” grapefruit…. does she seem to be getting smaller in the fruit world?? I’ve also been trying to introduce her to a plethora of my favorite musicians with her new and developing hearing abilities. I do hope she grows up to love music as much as her parents do although hopefully she won’t turn out […]

baby #1 / bump / pregnancy

Guess what! TWO strangers congratulated me this week. I’m an official pregnant lady now! How far along? 22 weeks Weight Gained: 14.5 lbs Symptoms: Tin soldier syndrome. At least that’s what I feel it should be called. I get up and get stuck in the bending over position. Or turn too quickly and have to wait for the rest of my body to unhinge and catch up. I think it’s probably related to the sciatic nerve but who […]

The Places We Live : House Tour #2

home / that darn house

I’ve definitely been coming off a bit too eager in my feverish attempt to pack as quickly as possible, tricking myself into thinking it’ll make our move date come sooner. Greg keeps reminding me, “you know… we still have a month here” ..as we stare at the pile of clothes that have now made their home in a heap on the floor since I may have sold the dresser that previously housed them. There was […]
