Travel Plans

Sorry for the lack of posts lately! It's been an insanely busy week as we've been getting ready to take some much-needed time off work for Thanksgiving. M is in Mesa, Arizona this weekend, so I've been trying to get us all packed and ready to leave on our trip. We're headed back to Georgia to see our families, and I could not be more excited...

On Monday, we're going to pack up our car and head East. Sadie and Georgia will be making the trip with us, and with my pregnant bladder, it should make for an interesting trip :) 

If you don't hear from me for awhile, I hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!

With love,

16 Weeks

It is official. If I were a celebrity, I would be on "bump watch". I no longer look like I just ate a large burrito. My tummy finally looks like I have a baby inside of it. Which means Baby Bean is growing bigger!

This week, Bean is the size of an avocado! I honestly cannot believe there is an avocado-sized baby in there. In just one month, we will be able to tell whether Bean is a boy or a girl. I am still thinking boy, but no one believes that I can possibly know that so early. I have a 50/50 chance of being right, so I will take those odds!

Weekend Recap

This weekend, I celebrated my 25th birthday. I can't believe I am a quarter-century old! Ha.

{my mom made this amazing almond cake for me... swoon}

We celebrated with a little sushi dinner at my favorite spot in town. The rest of the weekend was so relaxing. We took several walks around our neighborhood, where the fall colors are still beautiful. My mom spoiled us by cooking amazing dinners for us to eat. We still have plenty of leftovers :)

Unfortunately, we had to take her to the airport this afternoon. I don't know how I will be able to make it to Thanksgiving, when we will be reunited with our whole, wonderful family. 

So far, 25 has been a great year. My heart is full of love and awe over all the blessings in our lives. Thanks, friends and family (you're all family, really) for being such an unconditional source of support and encouragement to us always. I cherish all of you in my heart.
