It's been awhile.....

Life has been a little bit busy and I feel like a lot has been going on.
First and foremost.....Brooklynn!! She is continuing to grow, of course, and so is my belly!
(I received a polite request for more prego pictures from Stephanie and Ali and I will do my best to comply).

We had our 28 week appointment on Wednesday and she still has a strong healthy heartbeat, which is always nice to hear.
I am finally experiencing sore, swollen feet. The funny thing is that my left foot gets twice as big as my right foot! I was thinking that that was because I have poor circulation and I worried that it would somehow affect Brooklynn. But my doctor says it's no cause for concern, so I'm good!

What else has been happening?
We sold Eric's car....We decided that we really don't need two cars since we carpool to work and hardly ever have separate things to do at the same time, i.e. we pretty much spend all our time outside of work together! And we definitely don't need two car payments!! It is so nice to lose a $250 monthly payment!! Another reason we decided to sell the car is because of a very big decision that we've made: I will not be going back to work after Brooklynn comes!! I am so happy and excited that we are in a position to allow me to stay home. I just don't want to send my sweet baby girl to daycare and have half of my income go to it! I am really hoping that I can bring in the little extra income we might need with my Tastefully Simple business .
(so if anyone wants to support me and help us check out my website
Another rather big decision has come from our decision to sell Eric's car. We know that with only having one car we may run into conflicts where we have different schedules/different places to be. (We've actually already had some small snags in our schedule, but worked them out rather well). fix this problem in the future we are buying a motorcycle for Eric! You may think I am crazy but I am totally ok with this decision! Since Eric has never really ridden a motorycle he is taking a motorcycle class, he got to ride yesterday and he had lots of fun!
In all my glory!


  1. You're beautiful!

  2. Congrats on being able to be a stay at home mom!

  3. Cute as ever and your hair is super long. I am glad that you are getting things all worked out. Once you have the baby you aren't going to want to go any where for a while so that should help with the car share thing.
