Like sands through the hourglass…

3 Jul

so seems to be the days of this pregnancy.

I am finding this sweet time in my life seems to be speeding by like crazy. I always said that when I was finally able to get pregnant, I would try and not take for granted every pain and discomfort, and for the most part, I have enjoyed every minute of having this sweet girl in my belly.

However, I am so conflicted. I am so excited to meet this sweet girl. Will she have my cheeks? What about Daddy’s blue eyes? What will she be like? On the other hand, I love drinking in every amazing kick, spaz, flip, and flop that I feel. When she wakes me up kicking so hard it’s painful at 3:30 in the morning, I lay quietly and enjoy knowing that she is in there and growing.

Sweet baby girl, momma wishes that this time would both hurry up and stop.

Sick weekends are good for

Laying on the couch…all weekend.

Jason and I trading which couch we’re laying on.

Lots and lots of Pintrest-ing things.

A whole lot of Angry Birds.

“Quality time” with my sweet husband.

Many. Many. Many movies.

Drinking a whole gallon of Gatorade.

Resurrecting my blog.

When Jason’s away, Meg will…

Seven things…

23 Mar

Beth, whom I blog about often and love dearly, granted me the Stylish Blogger award! As part of that, I am to make you all privy to 7 lesser known facts about myself, then pass the baton on. Here they go…

7. I talk to my dog all. day. long. I have full-on conversations with her, and even wait for her response sometimes. I also sing to her.

6. I love peanut butter. Not like, but  l-o-v-e. If I see something is peanut butter flavored, I must try it, even if I know its going to be gross.

5. My heart is always in prayer for Somalia, Cuba, and Bolivia, and I dream of someday visiting all of these countries. However, these countries do not love me back, including my study abroad that got canceled the week before I was supposed to go.

4. I feel like I’m getting older not because of age, but because I am finally comfortable with the scars I have, and knowing that each and every one of them tells a story, and is a memory.

3. I am a former sufferer of several things, but one is OCD. Though I’m not as bad as I used to be, I still compulsively read labels on everything. If I touch something with a label, I HAVE to read it, or else I get really tense and upset, no matter how many times I’ve read it. I pretty much have my shampoo/conditioner bottles memorized.

2. I used to be afraid of the water. Now I am in love with it, and hate to leave the beach.

1. I used to never leave home without makeup on. Since quitting work, I’ve probably only worn it 9 or 10 times. And my skin is so much happier.

Photo 3…somethin’

After several really rough days, this just seemed fitting


So, I missed pictures last week. And this week. I mean, what can I say? I had a couple of really bad doctors appointments, which led me to a.) not feel very good from getting poked and prodded and b.) not really have much desire to get out of bed.


My favorite accessories, all in a row


I’m not all super about shoes, but here are my most favorite ones. Far left: patent leather black booties. Center: red patent leather peep toe pumps. Far right: purple alligator patent leather point toes. Yes, clearly, I love patent leather shoes. I think its from dance.


My new "object of lust"


Oh yes, I am wanting a new guitar. Maybe. Someday.


Welp, here’s to hoping that maybe I can start keeping up to date with my pictures. Even though I’ve already taken more this year than ever before!

Catching up on photos

Sweet Snickers, trying to rest from all the "work" she did Friday.



Our Saturday.

Just because she is so cute.




21 Jul

I rarely post twice in a day, I generally think its annoying, but today on the way home from work this song came on the radio, and I was so inspired and uplifted I couldn’t help but get excited. What a great song to remind us of how we are to act when we allow the Lord to be lord of our lives!

make ´em wonder what you´ve got
make ´em wish that they were not
on the outside looking bored
let it shine before all men
let´em see good works, and then
let ´em glorify the Lord
