Purple People Eater

Yes, today I am the 32 week purple people eater.

Happy Saturday :)

The Dinner.

I told you that Ryan had cooked me dinner for my birthday. I knew he was cooking but WHAT he was cooking was the surprise. He out did himself.

I got home and he was working up a storm.

We had Ribeyes...yummy! He grills the best I've ever had.

Baked Sweet Potato Fries with garlic, Parmesan, and parsley. WONDERFUL!

And the final dish. Fresh Asparagus with an olive oil/ vinager glaze. woooweee this was good!

So to sum it up. Everything was amazing and I am very proud of my lovely husband.

It's my birthday and I'll party if I want too!! hehe

Today is going to be a great day! I am now 26. I have a chiropractic appointment (baby's wearing on my back these days) then a Doctor's appointment which means I get to hear our little one's heart beat (which always brings a smile to my face), and THEN Ryan is cooking me a suprise dinner :)

I couldn't ask for a better day.

baby's first outdoor concert

This last Saturday we went to the Texas Rangers game which was followed by a free outdoor concert featuring the Old 97's. I forget how much I LOVE live music, sitting on soft green grass, and being around good friends.

I can't wait until Benjamin or Annie is here and we can take him/her to enjoy these things that we love so much. Baseball and Music.

Here are a few clips from the Saturday.


Mama and little one.

Just a side note:

I'm 32 weeks today and I am feeling happy, hot,and thankful :) Oh and most importantly, praying for rain.

A heavy heart.

Is what I had last night. I love all my friends and family dearly but I need to understand that there are so many things that I bear and worry about that I shouldn't because they are 100% out of my control. I pray today that I can let go and let God.

Today is Friday and I know it is going to be a great day. Rangers Game tomorrow followed by an Old 97's concert. Busy, fun filled weekend!

I hope everyone has a blessed weekend.

31 weeks.

This photo was taken one day before I turned 31 weeks. Since I'm not a perfectionist and I look the same, I'm going to label it as my 31 week photo :)

Look at that belly! Baby H is growing and growing and it makes me so happy.

Feeling Blessed.

I am so thankful for all that God had blessed me with. I couldn't begin to list them all but here are two:

1. I am thankful this man was put into my life. He is always there for me and I couldn't ask for anything more.

2. I am thankful for being blessed with a little baby that we only get to feel and not see.

Dear baby H,

We can only dream about how much our life is going to change once you are here. We talk about you constantly. We are curious if you are a boy or girl? If you will have curly hair (like momma) or straight hair (like dad)? Hazel eyes or brown eyes? Pasty white skin like your mom and a nice oval skin like your dad? Red hair or dark brown hair? The list goes on and on and non of it matters we love you so much. We are so excited to meet you! We have about 9 weeks and 3 days. You are growing more and more everyday. You should be gaining about a 1/2 pound per week. We love you hunnie!


Mom and Dad

The Run.

One of the things I really look forward to do again is running. I miss it. It's been a good break but I'm excited that I already have a race lined up. A 13.1 with my good friend Kate. The race is in March 2012 in Ardmore, OK. We are signing up as soon as registration opens that way there is no backing down.

It's crazy that I'm thinking about another 13.1 since the last one I ran in October 2009 kicked my rear. This time I know I have to be more disciplined in my training which means no skipping on the long days :)

Well I was reading this blog post just now and saw the below video. So true and funny.

I'm also excited to include our baby in these runs. Our jogging stroller should get some good miles on it!

I've been getting to enjoy this little fellow.

Watching my sweet husband (Uncle Ryan) read to his neices.

And get to watch Will catch what little fish are left in the tank.

We need rain.

That's all for now :)

Brook Farm General Store

Hah! i just stumbled upon this neat little online store.

When Ryan gets our awning done (hopefully this weekend) we may have to purchase this little solar powered radio. How cool is that?

29 weeks = only 11 weeks to go

Woop-t-do, time is starting to go by fast. We are almost in the single digit count down! I can't believe it. Baby H is starting to kick and squerm a lot more these days and I'm loving every minute of it :)

I hope everyone had a fantastic 4th of July weekend. Ours was relaxing and part that possible?

Either way I feel accomplished and that's all that matters.

Skip the sneak are my finds.

Well, it's been a busy morning. I have cleaned this house from top to bottom. I also straightened the baby's room and did a little decorating in the kitchen.

I started a plate wall!! I am so excited about it. I hung 9 plates today and I'm still on the look. I love going antiquing so the odds of finding some more awesome plates is high.

I also snagged these cups and saucers while plate shopping a few days ago. Love!

I found a few more things that I'll have to post later. Now it's time to relax!

The weekend!

Yeah! It's here, Friday. This has been a crazy week! Ryan and I were head of games during summer family week at church. Tonight is the last night with a few short games and then Mass! I can't believe we made it through it. Love those kids. I'm not going to lie but a few of them wore me out!

I can't believe 4th of July weekend is already here! We are going to be celebrating my parent's 30th Anniversary (which was on Monday) on Saturday with a cookout. Since things were so crazy this week our house didn't get much attention so I plan to wake up Saturday and clean clean clean! I also plan to work on the baby's room and hang a few things up around the house.

I'll post more tomorrow about what I'm hanging. First hint is I went to a few antique shops yesterday and the second hint has to do with this post.

Needless to say I found some GREAT finds! Post and pictures coming once I have time to take pictures (hopefully this afternoon before VBS or tomorrow).

And before I leave I want to say Happy 30th Anniversary to my wonderful parents. You taught me so much about life, love, and marriage by just loving each other. I love you!!
