Weekend Get-A-Way

Saturday morning, Jake brought me white daisies before we headed out on our weekend get-a-way. We left for Myrtle Beach around 10am on Saturday. Did some shopping at the outlets - we hit up GAP & Motherhood Maternity. I bought a pair of maternity jeans, hopefully I won't have to start wearing them for a few more weeks. We came back on Sunday afternoon.

Can't wait to fly out to MINNESOTA on Thursday!

MORE yard work

Jake started his Christmas break on Friday. He spent all morning & some of the afternoon working on our yard. He made 3 trips with the back of his Jeep full on pine straw.
The yard is starting to look SO much better!

I'm so thankful for a hard-working husband.

white trash

I'm sure there is a better name for this treat, but we call it white trash. Made some tonight to put into containers for friends of ours.

It's so easy & so yummy.
One of my favorites because I LOVE chocolate covered pretzels.

baby news

We are expecting our first baby on June 27!

Picture taken on October 15, the day the doctor confirmed that I am pregnant.

Our first ultrasound. Baby measured 6 weeks 5 days (instead of 8 weeks 3 days so they moved my due date).

From my appointment yesterday, they had to do an ultrasound to check the heartbeat.

Almost 11 weeks. A friend of mine told me once, how she bought a fabric tape measurer for her pregnancy and would measure & write the weeks on it. Then you can use it for each pregnancy to compare. I loved that idea & have remembered it for years. So far my waist has grown 1 1/2 inches since we first found out.

We will be measuring Jake's progress as well. (He is purposefully sticking out his stomach here.)

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

We finished decorating for Christmas last night.

Well, I'm off to wrap some presents!
