New & Improved

We have a new kitchen, Yay! We finally got our kitchen completely renovated and it makes me so happy!! It has taken some long, hard labor hours but props to the Hubby & one of my Dads friends it looks amazing! Sorry there is no 14 week belly pic, but this is where we've been spending all of our time...


Whatcha think?! :) I love it! It has been a long time coming and it has been way worth it. Please don't laugh when you read this, but now I can finally use all my new wedding presents! haha! Yes, you heard right I have not used any of my wedding gifts! When we got married we were thinking about moving so I wanted to wait and use all my new stuff in the new house. Well once we decided to stay and renovate I decided I wanted to wait as well. So now here we are, a new kitchen & all new things! I have forgotten half the stuff I got... this is going to be like major Christmas time! I can't wait! We are working our way to the back of the house, but this was one of the major projects. Next major project is the patio... We are extending it and getting pretty flower beds! Bring on the warm weather before I can't bend over and garden :)

*14 WEEKS*
Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 14 weeks
Size of baby: The size of a lemon (3 ½ inches)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 2 lbs. (just keeping track at dr. appts)
Maternity Clothes: Still wearing all regular clothes
Gender: We will know March 26th! Ah, so soon :)
Movement: Not yet
Sleep: Sleep is good, but nightmares not so much! I do not know what is going on but I have had the worst nightmares lately!! Chris has had to wake me in my sleep because I will make terrified noises:( The dreams have nothing to do with the baby, but things like Chris getting chased by the cops and popping his knee out of socket and me getting kidnapped while 9-1-1 is being held hostage?! Really? These have got to subside soon, sleeping is scary!
What I miss: Nothing really, life is good!
Cravings: Coke Icees still :) and McDonald’s?? I used to would never eat there, now it sounds so good. I have not brought myself to do it yet though!
Symptoms: Feeling a little energy coming back, woohoo! And indeed noticing the belly grow more!
Best Moment this week: Looking at paint colors for the house, I came across some baby colors I just love!! :) But for now just knowing this gift from God is growing in my tummy is a feeling like no other!

Hope everyone is having a great week! It's almost the weekend :) We are headed to one of my best friends engagement party Saturday night!! I can't wait to see everyone and the bride-to-be! Annie got engaged in December and I am so so happy for her & Patrick! I am honored to be a bridesmaid in her wedding August 13th! Yes, 2 weeks before the due date but I am hoping the little one will hold out, maybe?! I wouldn't want to miss it for the world! Congrats Shmannie! I love you bunches!!

Hopefully the Tigers won't disappoint tonight, sheesh.
