Little Lady or Little Man.

Tomorrow is the big day. The day that we find out what our little one is!!!
It makes me laugh that I thought I could wait till their birthday to find out,
I have no idea what I was thinking.
I'm so excited to find out and spend the day with Peter, just the two of us.
I thought it would be nice to write a little letter to our babe before we know for sure what
we will be having. One last letter without a name, just our little peanut!

April 20, 2015

little peanut,
I can't believe we will know what you are in just four days. It is so crazy and exciting. You already have so many people who love you, and they don't even know you yet. They ask about you and talk about you all the time. You are so cherished.

I've always been the one to believe that I will be a Momma to boys. That's just what I have pictured and what I have dreamed about. That is until you came along. I can't quite explain it but I have felt with most of my heart that you are a sweet baby girl. This took me by surprise since I never expected that to happen. Sometimes I go back and forth but at the end of the day I'm still settled on the fact that you will be our little lady. Of course if you turn out to be our little man, that will rock my world, but also make me so incredibly happy. YOU make me happy no matter what.

No matter what you are, I know one thing for sure, you are LOVED. You will be our baby and we can't wait to see what God made you to be for us and for His kingdom. We know that His plan is good and we are so thankful to be a part of this big and important plan. You are so important and you will make us more significant just by your first breath. My heart almost hurts because it is so excited to know you more and hold you in my arms.
September will be such a sweet month!

Can't wait to see you soon and find out if you are our little lady, or our little man.

Love, momma.

Sights + Seats // Egg Harbor Cafe

While in Atlanta we went to get some breakfast at our families favorite spot! I was excited since breakfast is this new and amazing love of mine during the past few weeks of this pregnancy. My sister-in-law, Joy, kept talking about how amazing Egg Harbor Cafe's biscuits were and I couldn't wait to try them. The restaurant was a big place but you still got that cozy feeling thanks to the sweet staff and quiet nooks for seating. And the food, it was wonderful. The biscuits were really, really good... possibly one of the best I've ever had. Oh, and their breakfast potatoes. I may have almost ordered a to-go order for later. Almost.

^^^ & these two, I love it!

nephews are the best.

Our weekend was full of love and kisses thanks to the sweetest nephews. One is 2.5 and the other is only 4 weeks old! Yes, there were a lot of kisses. I love these ages for completely different reasons. One is saying the funniest things and using his imagination, it's so fun to watch him play and learn. Then the little arm full of love is needing bottles, diaper changes and lots of rocking which is also wonderful. Of course it made me think about the exciting changes coming for us in just a few months. I can't wait, and I'm so thankful to have these two boys to give me a little taste to just how sweet it will be.

Before we left for the weekend we stopped by this adorable little coffee shop
for desserts and sweet goodbyes. Can't wait till the next time we see them!

Favorite Charleston Spots.

One of my favorite weekend vacation spots has to be Charleston, SC! I'm so glad that we live so close by and a quick trip is only a 3 hour drive (or 2.5 if you drive like my husband!). I thought it would be fun to highlight my favorite Charleston spots for all of you today, because it is a pretty amazing place to visit. I'm going to split this up into four categories and share my most favorite spot for each!

eat // Circa 1886
this is by far the best food in Charleston. I know that is saying a LOT for one of the best cities for food in the south but it is our favorite. The prices are great, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is perfect. This is definitely our best date night spot and we try and fit it in every trip we make to Charleston.

drink // Edmund's Oast
this section is all Peter. Not only because I can't partake in sipping those delicious beverages right now but because he is the expert in this department. He always finds the best spots in every city we visit and his favorite place to sit and relax with a cold drink is most definitely Edmund's Oast. They have a great variety of beers (even sours!!!) and the dinner menu is amazing. Just make sure you have reservations, unless you are comfortable at the bar.

play // Isle of Palms
a day trip to the beach or a full week of sand and sun, Isle of Palms is the spot to go. Great live music, cute shops, yummy beach food, they have it all. I have spent many girls weekends on this beach and loved every second, but is is also great for a family vacation!

shop // King Street
the infamous King Street in Charleston is lined with some of the best shopping you could imagine. Name brand, antique shops, boutiques, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, everything! And of course I have to mention the most beautiful Forever21 store I've ever shopped in, it's huge also. Anything you are looking for can be found on King Street.

What are your favorite Charleston spots, please share!?!
Check out some past times in Charleston, HERE
& come back next week for more Charleston fun from our weekend visit!
I can't wait to have a little weekend getaway with my hubby!!!

Easter 2015.

It's definitely not the first time I've said it, and most definitely not the last time I'll say it, but... Easter is my favorite holiday. I just love a whole weekend that celebrates what our Savior did for us. How He showed His power and His promise to His people and defeated sin and death. I love to celebrate what He did for us and spend time with family around the table eating delicious food and being thankful for Jesus. 

I'm pretty bummed we didn't get a big family photo but I know next year will be a completely
different story since we will have our own little bunny with us!

Hope you all had a beautiful Easter weekend!!
