weekly three.

November 17, 2017

This week has been drastically better than the last, thank God, but we are still fighting a bit of a cold. It seems like mine came back for round two after taking care of Solomon and his cold. #momproblems. I'm so so happy that he is feeling better and more himself. Now we just have to get his sleep training back on track.... fun stuff. Sometimes motherhood is just hard. You wake up on the wrong side of the bed and you annoy yourself all day long with a bad attitude. That was my day yesterday, but I'm vowing that this weekend will be a different story. It's going to be a good one, and I hope you have a good one, too!

my happy boy feeling better and playing baseball, his favorite thing. 

the last little bit of fall decor in the house BUT using my Young Living Christmas Spirit oil!!

I gave Solomon the Target toy catalog and he sat at the table mesmerized with each page for a good twenty minutes. 
It was so cute!



pregnancy post // month eight.

November 15, 2017

Weeks 29-32
pictures are seriously lacking for month eight, which makes me feel awful, but month nine will be different! 


29 weeks: 
  • round ligament pain was really rough at the beginning of the week and caused a lot of problems with sleep. 
  • also needing to get up to have cereal at night because I'm so hungry 
  • pubic bone is very uncomfortable with a lot of pressure. Baby boy seems to be getting bigger by the day!
  • a busy weekend of walking at the apple orchard, and fall for greenville was a LOT, but it was also fun. 


30 weeks:

  • my cousins and aunt gave me a beautiful family baby shower and it was such a sweet morning!!!
  • can't believe we have 10ish weeks left before we get to meet our new baby boy!!!! I'm so excited!
  • Peter was away in Augusta for work and I could tell how worn out I was by the end of the day. I missed him a lot and I'm so thankful for how much he helps when he is home. 
  • had a check up with the midwives and all was good! Head is still down, lots of movement and the heart rate was 160. 


31 weeks:
  • helped my SIL with my nephews bday party which worked my pregnant butt to death. We were both so tired by Saturday but it was fun!
  • Celebrated Halloween with our little family, excited about next year and looking forward to dressing up as a family  of four.
  • Starving all the time!!!! I feel like I can't stop eating or snacking
  • The cleaning and nesting is crazy right now, but the pelvic pain is also awful, so I'm trying to take it slow and easy as much as possible. 


32 weeks:
  • sick with a really bad head cold and lost my voice, which you can tell by picture above! 
  • finally working in Asher's room thanks to my mom and Peggy's help, also captured in picture above!!
  • the full pregnant lips have appeared, or so I have been told. 
  • pelvic area is so sensitive and sore. 
  • nesting like crazy and loving it!!!
next month will have better pictures, promise!! ;)

Family Photos 2017

November 14, 2017


Fall family photos are my favorite thing each year! I love being able to look back and see how our house has changed and how our family has grown. It's also my favorite time of year, so it only makes sense that I would choose to have our yearly photos now. This year I begged Peter for some professional maternity pictures and newborn photos for my christmas gift. I can't think of a better gift than images of our family that will last forever. Pictures make my heart happy and my family makes my heart even more happy, so it's a win-win for me. Thanks to Molly Neely Photography for the beautiful images & thanks to my sweet hubby for the special gift!

I love this one, definitely want to frame it somewhere in the house!


& I think I'm going to frame the one above and the one below in Asher's nursery!
The happiness and love in both of these images make my heart want to burst....

unfortunately, wrestling a toddler during photos also makes daddy's shirt wrinkle, but I still love this picture. 
Real life, right, haha?!? Not much longer till we get to take those newborn pictures!!!

& just for fun... here are our past year family photos!
2014 // one year of marriage
2015 // new baby boy
2016 // no fall, but Christmas photos instead

taking stock 014

November 13, 2017


I feel like I just did one of these posts but it was back in April. Crazy, this year has flown by so fast!! So, I thought it was time for a new taking stock before the crazy holiday season starts for us. 

Making // my Christmas shopping list! Trying my best to get things done early this year just in case.
Cooking // a lot of the same things over and over, poor Peter. I really need to switch things up. 
Drinking // my red raspberry leaf tea a few nights a week. YUM!
Reading // the Little Red Hen a lot lately. I'm so over it, but Solomon is not. 
Wanting // a new rug for the kitchen. Something like this!
Looking // at all the gorgeous leaves turning in Greenville recently, like those above. That's the view from Asher's bedroom window, and I love it. 
Wishing // I didn't feel SOOOO uncomfortable every night after a day of the busy stay at home mom job, but I'm thankful for all of it. Just uncomfortable and thankful ;) 
Enjoying // as much one on one time with Solomon while I can!
Liking // this style nightgown that I bought while pregnant with Solomon. I need to buy a few more!
Wondering // if Asher will want to join us before Christmas.....?!?
Loving // my sweet friends and the little celebration they gave me for Asher last night.
Hoping // Solomon feels better soon, this cold that has rocked our house is not nice. 
Marveling // at all the conversations with Solomon recently. I love talking to him.
Needing // more coffee than I'm allowed to drink. I also need a spicy margarita. 
Smelling // a lot of oils to try and get rid of that cold. Thieves is my best friend the past two weeks.
Wearing // pajamas as often as possible.
Knowing // I need to get started on our Christmas cards!!!
Thinking // about how crazy 2018 is going to be, but I can't wait!
Bookmarking // Christmas decoration ideas on Pinterest. The temptation to decorate before Thanksgiving is getting strong!
Opening // Asher's dresser and closet to organize all his clothes. The kid will never run out of cute things to wear, that's for sure!
Giggling // about all the crazy pregnancy dreams I've had in the past week, they are getting crazy!!!
Feeling // anticipation about the month ahead, and so much excitement!!!

weekly three.

November 10, 2017

Oh how I've missed these posts each week! I'm excited to start them back now that we are in the thick of the holidays, and the last days of this pregnancy. I can't believe we will have a new baby to love so soon! The days are literally flying by, and I can't wait to meet our new little guy. Hope your week has been great! Happy Friday!!!

Super sweet surprise flowers (and fall cold necessities) on my front porch from a new friend at church. So thankful for this little pick me up! 

Clothes hanging in Asher's closet!!!! My mom and Peggy were so sweet to help put it together last night. I honestly didn't do much except for show them what I want it to look like. I have one more load of laundry to go and then everything will be washed and ready for our new baby boy to arrive!

This sweet boy has been struggling with his first REAL cold. He's been pitiful and it's breaking my heart, but the silver lining of the whole thing is all the extra cuddles I've been getting. He's so precious, hoping he feels better this weekend.
