Where does the time go?

Since I was reminded ever so kindly today by my sister that I have not blogged in some time, here I am.  I really don't know what I have been up to lately that would be a good enough excuse for not getting on here, but I will try to get you all up to date.

I know one thing that has me distracted and not blogging and that is Pinterest.  I AM OBSESSED!  I love going on there and looking at ideas for the nursery, the house, and recipes for my never satisfied hunger.  It is just the best sight and I can honestly say that I now spend more time on there than on Facebook, which is saying a lot.  I am now marking tons of pics for ideas for the nursery... TONS OF IDEAS!  The nursery is actually something that we have been working on.  Paul has been boxing up his stuff for storage to make room for the baby stuff.  The room will still be a dual office/nursery but at least this way it will be more nursery than office... At least I hope.

Beyond that I am reading The Hunger Games.  I am only 75 pages into it, but I have to say I am starting to get what all the fuss is about.  It is really good.  I am on a mission to finish it quickly, so we can go see the movie since Paul has been wanting to and of course I started the book the second the movie came out.  What can I say, I am moving a little slower these days.

I am starting to get nervous about life after baby.  I was thinking that pregnancy was the hardest thing that I had ever done, but the closer we get the more I realize I have no idea how easy I have it right now.  We are both getting really excited, but there is something to be said for the calm before the storm.  All the little things that we thought we had a ton of time to prepare for are slowly coming to a head and deadlines are moving up and I am sort of freaking out.  But that is my nature, so I am sure that it concerns no one that I am stressed.  Too bad I am concerned enough for everyone.  Oh well this is life... Jump right in the water's warm.

And that is life!

Day 22: Your Shoes

A Photo A Day Challenge - Day 22: Your Shoes

Since I only left the house today to run to Vons, these were my shoes of choice most of the day.  I love slippers and these are not only cute, but incredibly comfortable.

Day 21: Reflection

A Photo A Day Challenge - Day 21: Reflection

Here is me in all my glory!  I am 24 weeks pregnant and I can honestly say that today is the first day in some time that I have felt really good.  In an attempt to take advantage of this energy, I started my spring cleaning.  My closet is looking amazing and next is the pantry and then onto the office to make room for our little lady!

Lullaby - Dixie Chicks

They didn't have you where I come from
Never knew the best was yet to come
Life began when I saw your face
And I hear your laugh like a serenade
How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough, is forever enough
How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough, cause I'm never never
Givin' you up

A Photo A Day Challenge - Days 18 - 20

Day 18: Something You Bought

Before we knew what we were having, but obviously after we knew we were pregnant, I bought these.  So small and cute, how you could anyone resist.

Day 19: Sweet

This is my Moe, when is his most loving and sweetest.  And coincidentally this is right before he attacks!  Ahh true love!

Day 20: Someone You Love

Even though it was supposed to be someone that I love, it was too hard to narrow down... So I am adding this one, since these are some someone's that I love with all my heart.  Just wish that I was smiling, so that you knew I was actually happy to be taking this photo.  (Such a mess)

We're Having A...


So excited and there are just not enough words to express that.  We had our ultrasound a few weeks ago and though we knew we wanted to find out, we wanted to do it later, just the two of us.  So we had the tech write down what we were having in a card and then after dinner, we opened the card and found out the most exciting news.  It was a very emotional moment, more so for Paul, who really lost it once we read the card.  And then someone had to be the strong one, which will never happen again.  It was by far the best and most memorable moment of this pregnancy thus far.

Bring on all the pink, tampons and crying... Poor Paul!

Day 17: Water

A Photo A Day Challenge - Day 17: Water

This is a photo from a day at the beach about a year ago.  I love the beach, the sand, the water the sound... Everything really.  This really is a cheat, but I have not been to the water in forever.

Day 16: Morning

My favorite way to start the day - Locks and cream cheese on a bagel.  Can't go wrong there!

Day 15: Happiness

My sister is now married!  Yeah for her!  This was from her Bachelorette Party last weekend in Pasadena.  It was such a wonderful weekend.  So happy for her and Rodger!  Love them both!

Day 14: Something You're Reading

A Photo A Day Challenge - Day 14: Something You're Reading

I am currently reading Bringing Up Bebe, a book about raising children like the French do.  Since this motherhood thing is so very new to me, I am willing to try anything once.  And so far this one is sticking...

Day 13: In Your Bag

A Photo A Day Challenge - Day 13: In Your Bag

This is a view of the inside of my bag.  It contains my wallet, heartburn pills, and my baby journal.  It usually has my organizer in there as well, but since I am heading up to Monrovia tomorrow for Katie's wedding, work is done for a few days.  There is also a handful of chapsticks and lip glosses and tons of wedding papers that I need for the weekend.  Love my purse as well... MK all the way!

Day 12: Close Up

As close as you can get... To my Moe!
