So, there it is,a 22 week belly. It's getting much more noticeable and acquiring many more rubs and pats. She has started kicking a lot. More specifically, my bladder. It's a good thing a I have an intern in my classroom this year. There is no way I could avoid running to the bathroom every fifteen minutes. I've been feeling great other than the occassional gagging. NOTE: Avoid eating brocolli and brushing your teeth. I hope all of my pregnancies are as easy as this one. I have been so blessed!
Halloween weekend we spent the weekend with our community group in Branson. We rented a nice cabing that fit all of us. We had so much fun eating, shopping, watching football and playing games. We went down Friday night and had dinner at Pancho Villa, a little mexican food joint. The next day we spent the day at the outlet malls, where we found lots of good buys. Came home for lunch and the boys had grilled burgers and made milkshakes! It was back to the malls after that. Soon we found ourselves at a little hole in the wall bar that would play the game for us. After many games and breakfast the next morning, we were headed home. We love our gang so much!
Night at dinner!
Lot's of good deals!
We brought smores to make at the bar. They were having a Halloween party there that night and some old lady asks "So, what are you guys dressed as, College Coeds?" Too fun! The old people were all getting a little too crazy for our taste so we left soon thereafter.
The crew! (Minus two very missed couples who couldn't join us over the weekend) Blake, Amanda, Seth, Chelsea, Matt and I, Owen, Amy, Jordan, Amber, Billy, Jordan.
This past weekend I helped host a shower for a dear friend, Elizabeth. This shower was so special because Asa is already here! At 31 weeks, Asa was born due to some health complications. He was born at 2lbs 14oz. He has been growing like a champ! He's at 3lbs and is breathing all on his own! Mommy is doing great and looking forward to having him home. The shower was hosted at another friends house, Katie. She did an amazing job! The theme was apples! Look here for shower pics: www.katiegracedesign.com
Is this not the cutest thing you've ever seen? That's right...the onsie says "Miss March". One of my good friends, Jordan, made her very first tutu and painted the onsie. She is so talented! What are the odds that she'll be spinning on her toes at 3 months?! Who knows, maybe she'll be inspired!
I just recently married my amazing hubby Matt and hauled my belongings to NW Arkansas where we currently reside! We are so blessed to be surrounded by amazing friends and family who love and share life with us. This blog is an outlet for our sorely missed friends and family back home to keep connected with our daily "life in the ville."
