Wow, what a year it’s been. My last post…soooooo long ago…was pictures of my sweet teeny tiny baby Creighton. My sweet little 6lb 6oz baby boy is basically a teenager now, standing 2.5 feet tall and weighing in at a … Continue reading
It was Friday, August 10, 2018 around 5am that I got up to potty for the umpteenth time that night. We ate Mexican food for dinner the night before and of course I downed a ton of water. Michael was … Continue reading
Well it’s been a hot minute, hasn’t it? My last post was in May and wow, lots of life changes have happened! First of all, WE MOVED! Michael was offered a job in Richmond and with a baby on the … Continue reading
I’ve saved the best for last for my three-part Greece series: Santorini! You can catch up on our trip to Athens and Paros for a few travel tips and recommendations. Santorini is probably the most popular Greek island, and for … Continue reading
May is by far my favorite month of the year. Not only are peonies in full bloom, but there are SO many days to celebrate! First up, I turned 31, which wasn’t nearly as eventful as turning 30. We were … Continue reading

Wow, what a trip! Michael and I took off to Greece for a week and a half and called it our babymoon. We went to Athens, Paros, and ended our trip in the beautiful Santorini! Spending time with Michael was … Continue reading
We’re over half way there to meeting our baby boy! The first trimester seemed to inch slowly and since we’ve announced, time has flown! I can honestly say this has been a dream pregnancy and I’m so grateful that I’ve felt this good. I’ve definitely added more naps in my life, because well, naps are life! I’ve kept up with my normal exercise routine, mostly to balance out the teenage boy appetite my son has. Boy loves pizza :-). And Costco ice-cream swirl. Ok, and their hot dogs. At least Michael and I split the ice cream???
I’ve definitely had some strange cravings—things I haven’t eaten in years. I usually crave something for a week and once I have it, it’s on to the next craving. Early on in my pregnancy, I told Michael, “At some point this week, we have to go to Buffalo Wild Wings and get garlic parmesan wings.” Let me tell you, those wings were perfection! Other foods have included cabbage soup, salads for breakfast with a lot tomatoes and some goat cheese, whole milk, and fruit, such as pears, kiwis, and Cara Cara oranges.
Mommas, what were some of your cravings when preggo?
It’s strange to watch my stomach grow and not fit in my zip-up & button pants. I have a few pairs of pants that are stretchy, so those are my go-to’s until I land in maternity clothes. I have a feeling those days are coming soon!
One of the coolest parts has been feeling him move around every once in a while! It feels like little paint brush strokes on the inside of my belly. And no, we don’t have a name yet. We have one name we keep going to, but nothing official.
Another sweet part of this season is my sister-in-love, Abby, is also pregnant and due a day before us! We just found out this week that they are also having a boy! BOY COUSINS! How fun is that?!
Since we found out that we are pregnant, I’ve been reading and writing in a devotional for expectant mommas. It’s called Waiting in Wonder by Catherine Larson and I’ve loved doing it. I highly recommend it for other mommas-to-be!
Other than growing a human, things have been pretty low-key for us. I can’t believe we are almost in April. On our calendar, we have a fun trip planned to Greece that we are calling the babymoon! Quality-time with Michael, gyros & stuffed grape leaves, and Santorini pathways?! I can barely contain my excitement!
Anyone else have any spring break or summer trips planned?
I’ll close with this adorable onesie a friend gave me!
Oh boy do we have a fun secret to share with you! For the past three months, I’ve been growing a human! We found out after Thanksgiving and surprised our family with the news on Christmas. I made little bird … Continue reading
Another year in the books and 2017 was a good year! Michael and I traveled to the other side of the world to Thailand & China. We rode on an elephant, I was a celebrity in China, and Michael ate a rat. … Continue reading
