  • Happy Friday ladies! We've made it through another week!

    1. I love summer, it's been so difficult to be on bed rest all summer. I just want to get outside and play!

    2. I would love to have 2 retirement homes one in the mountains and one on a beach somewhere. Wait, do I have to retire first?! I would like that now!

    3. A boat - so I could get back to civilization;)

    4. Casual dinner party I would probably do a mexican buffet. A little fancier, I'd make my crab stuffed shells YUM!

    5. Today I feel relaxed. I got some decent sleep last night and don't seem to be as uncomfortable this morning!

    Nothing to update. Sunday is our anniversary & we are going out for dinner. I'm excited to put on a cute dress, do my hair and make-up and actually feel like a regular pregnant lady for a few hours! 

    Hope everyone has wonderful weekend!

  • Hey ladies!

    Daily Questions:

    1.  Favorite season? Spring

    2.  Where would you like to retire to? Probably North Carolina, or Virginia.

    3.  Stranded on an island...what 3 material items are with you? This is tough! My hair brush, an umbrella, and my flip flops. This is a hard one - I would say my cell phone and computer, but I'm assuming there's no electricity, so they're wouldn't last long..

    4.  Your hosting a dinner party/cook-out/etc., what do you enjoy cooking and serving? I don't/can't cook, so my guests would be screwed..lol. 

    5.  Finish this sentence- Today I feel... Extremely uncomfortable!

    Updates? Yes I DO! I had a weekly appointment yesterday, and it went very well! I was only 1cm dilated, and 50% effaced - but who knows if I've been walking around like that for a while now. And...I'm officially off bed rest! I can resume normal activity, move around, and start having sex. No more restrictions. 

    Thank you ladies so much for your support over the last 6 weeks. You are all amazing. I wish nothing but the best for you all, and term/healthy pregnancies and babies!

  • Daily Questions:

    1.  Favorite season? 

    Probably fall. It's still really pretty out but not quite as hot. It's also marathon-running season, though not this year for me obviously. And back-to-school time, and our anniversary. 

    2.  Where would you like to retire to?

    DH and I talk a lot about Montana. Big chunk of land, big house, just the two of us and a quiet retired life. Smile 

    3.  Stranded on an island...what 3 material items are with you?

    Ummmmm is DH a material item? I guess plenty of food, a really good and long book, and sunblock. Because I burn like NOTHING. It's the Irish in me. 

    4.  Your hosting a dinner party/cook-out/etc., what do you enjoy cooking and serving? 

    Love to make calzone from scratch and experiment with different fillings.  

    5.  Finish this sentence- Today I feel...

    Hopeful.

    Going in for another NST tonight - hoping it looks as good as Tuesday's did!

    My favourite seasons are spring and fall... Spring because winter is finally over and fall because of the colours, temperature and the break before winter comes again, lol.

    The mountains. My husband and I honeymooned in the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee/North Carolina and it was BLISS.

    A knife, a lighter and a tent :)

    My last one was Jambalya... I like to cook whatever I make really well :) And usually theres lots of cookies and baked goods (because I'm much better at baking than cooking)
