24 Weeks

How far along:  24 weeks

Baby size:  Corn

Baby's progress:  Should weigh about a pound now, around a foot long. Brain is growing quickly now and taste buds are continuing to develop. 

Weight gain:  I am think I am up 12 lbs. 

Stretch marks: no thank gosh.

Sleep: it's still decent. I am up 2-3 times a night to use the bathroom. I have also been waking about once a week with evil Charley horses. (sh*t those hurt!!)

Gender: I will hopefully blog that within the week

Movement: lots! I definitely feel movement thru out the whole day but mostly when im lying down. It is such a trip!

Best moment this week:  I would have to say my favorite time is in the evenings when I am crawling into bed and the babe is moving around and Kyle gets to have his hand on my stomach feeling it. Loveeee

Looking forward to: week 30, 3d ultrasound 

Food cravings: Still loving peaches and I have a eggo waffle every morning :) 

Weirdest food I ate this week: Nothing weird..

Anything making you queasy or sick: thankfully this has stopped... still not a fan of anything stinky (like the kitchen trash)

What I miss: occasionally I miss a glass of Moscato, or my normal clothes

Symptoms: Charley horses and heartburn are seriously not fun!! 

Workouts: Walking a mile at the local park on days off (was really hoping to find a Pilate's class but it's quite expensive!)

Things that suck: Not having many outfit choices...Wishing my mom was here... 

Things that don't suck: feeling the babe pretty consistently. Having the closest finished and little clothes hung. Having a handy, hardworking husband.

The latest

I'm not sure if I am happy or sad the weekend is over... (in laws are currently at the house...)
I am just not a fan of house guests in general so it makes it tough to enjoy days off when your house isn't really yours. Call me crazy...

Have you heard of Petunia Pickle bottom? They make the cutest diaper bags and I happen to live fairly close to their corporate offices and this weekend they had their annual sample bags. Pretty freaking awesome.

Doors opened at 12, I got in line at 11 and was only about 25 people back. 
Cake line

I ended up grabbing 4 bags while walking around, almost thought I needed 3, but decided on 2. 

I also found a matching wallet for the black bag, and a pair of jammies and beanie. Successful day for sure.

Saturday, we celebrated the birthday of a good friend Justine. Started the day with pedicures and ended it with dinner and drinks (juice for me).
(whoa bump)

Happy Monday xo

It was my working weekend so not too much excitement occurred except I took a half day Sunday which gave me some time with hubs. 
We hit Lowes and bought a wood closet organizer for the babes room, I CANNO'T wait until its put in this weekend. The husband is currently working in there after ripping out some old boards.

We hit Hobby Lobby to buy a framed sign I liked and dined at the Outback. I had the best Cherry Limeade drink :)

Monday was my full day off, had lunch with a friend and hit the pool. No complaints!

Managed to get a walk in last night, and now I am dreaming of this Pumpkin muffin from Panera..

Happy Tuesday!

Weekend Up

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was very emotional but I survived and all is good. I won't get into it because its too personal, but please send well wishes for my best friend "S". 

Friday we went to dinner with some friends, the boys decided they needed $15 dollar Bloody Mary's. 

Saturday the hubs had a wedding so I was rolling solo in the afternoon/evening. I was trying to stay busy to keep my sadness away so I went and got a car wash, hit Marshall's, and we just got a new Hobby Lobby so I wondered around there. I took a bunch of pictures of things I liked for the nursery and I think we decided on 2 things that I will go and buy this week. 

I love getting mail and this beauty came on Saturday, gotta love the look of Rose Gold. 

I also came across this chap stick at Target, its a mint flavor similar to the EOS kind. Super cute packaging.

Sunday is my favorite day of the week if it's my weekend off of work. Hubs installed recessed lighting in the nursery which turned out great. We hit a few stores and then lunched at Lazy Dog. I am obsessed with that place!  Came home, cleaned house and had my dad and his girlfriend over for dinner. Thankful for days like this.

2 days

Since I work every other weekend, I spent Monday and Tuesday enjoying my days off. Well kinda. Tuesday I worked 6 hours of overtime but I guess I can't really complain, we have a lot to buy in the coming months!

Enjoyed a park date with my 2 girlfriends and their littles. I can't wait to be pushing my own in those swings next year!

In the afternoon I hit our local community pool for the first time with my sister, a bit crowded but it was enjoyable for the short time we stayed.

Last night I talked the husband into taking me to the fair. I couldn't stop thinking about these amazing little donuts.
Cinnamon sugar goodness in your mouth. 

Ended the day watching the sun set and feeling baby flutters.
