After much thought and deliberation, I have decided to say goodbye to blogging.

How I thought I would be turns out to be much different than who I am, now. I am private. I love my life, my family, and my purpose in life right now. I love praising God for his wonderful gifts he's bestowed onto me and my family in any way possible, but this blog is no longer it. I do not want to put my life and my son out to the world. Not yet, anyway. There are far too many avenues I feel compelled to walk down right now, and blogging does not fit. It will be an adjustment, but I think it is what's best for me and my family.

I do want to give blogging major credit. It changed my life for the better in the past year. I've learned to document more of my life, which is amazing to look back on. I am so thankful for all these great pictures and anecdotes of this time in my life. I will continue documenting these special (and seemingly ordinary) days, but for now they will be just for me and my family.

Thanks, blog world. I'll think of you fondly.

Yesterday I hit 35 weeks, 35 days to go (til my Estimated Due Date/EDD)! Let me say: WOAH!!! Sometimes I still can't believe I'm going to be a mom in just a couple short weeks! I kept saying that it seemed so far away because we were experiencing "winter" and I can only imagine bringing him home in spring weather...Well, Spring peeked it's lovely face out last week, and now it feels so real!

Baby's Size: He should be about 5 pounds and change at this point...although, we really have no clue how big he actually is.
Weight Gain: I did the math wrong last time, lol. At my last appointment I had gained a total of 20lbs. In about three weeks I've gained another 2 pounds. I'm completely ok with it.
Symptoms: Normal stuff-- my hip pain has gotten significantly worse, my acid reflux is now up to about four nights a week (always around 6pm), and I finally figured out that the weird pain and numbness in my hands is carpal tunnel!! I sleep pretty well, despite the hip pain, so I'm just counting my blessings. Honestly, it's not all that bad (yet).
Cravings: With only a couple weeks left, it seems I crave EVERYTHING!
Best Moment: Spending some quality time outside walking and soaking up some sun! Reading in my backyard was especially peaceful and lovely.

So Behind!

I'm pretty behind on blogging, but I have good reason! My dad has been in town from FL to finish getting some things out of the house so we can use our space in the most efficient way possible. 

Here's a photo-dump of recent happenings:

My outfit to my cousin's bridal shower last weekend. I was 33 and a half weeks that day!

On Good Friday my brother's band played at The Note (Bam Margera's bar). Even though I was exhausted from a day of prepping for Easter, I had to put on my (7 inch platform) boots, leather jacket, and go hear him play! They were awesome!

THe other day I drove Scott to work. It was a particularly warm day, and we arrived 30 min early, so we hung out together outside for a little bit. I love random pockets of quality time together. (it was windy, so my hair looks a little gross.) Scott looks so handsome!

Tomorrow I will definitely be doing my 35 week update, but I wanted to share the last couple of weeks before it became completely irrelevant!

Easter Family Pictures

Here's what I ended up wearing for our little family picture! Last year of it being just the two (and a half) of us!

Comfort is the key when dressing the belly, now. Let me just say, I saw a million women in Maxi dresses or skirts at church! I didn't mind being in-trend, though.
