Well, this blog was coming along great and I was LOVING my new hobby! I was all set to turn our playroom back into a living room, paint the kitchen cabinets, built this planked wood sideboard for my kitchen, make art for my kitchen walls, find fabric for window valances for the kitchen and so much more. And then… after 18 months of fervent prayers, my prayers were answered… I got pregnant… with a GIRL!
Having the first trimester coincide with summertime and school being out for two little boys was not a good combination! Everything came to a halt and I was feeling bad enough at one point that I bribed my 5-year-old with candy to wipe my 2-year-old’s butt because I was too sick and tired to get up at that moment. The morning sickness lasted until around 20-21 weeks this time, and if I hadn’t already found out it was a girl from the Verifi test, I would have known it was a girl from how different I felt compared to my past pregnancies.
So, I am finally feeling better. 26 weeks today. I am so excited for a girl and the boys can’t stop talking about their baby sister. God blessed me with two little boys who really like to help out.
We just finished with a HUGE yard sale that I can’t believe I didn’t take pictures of. I found some great tips through Pinterest that helped make the yard sale a big success. I’ll have to post more on that later.
As for the blog, I love blogging and the creative outlet it is for me. But I know myself and having a baby will make me a basketcase for months. I definitely plan to keep the blog going, but if you see long lulls between posts, just know I’m working on getting ready for baby. Thanks for reading and following along. I have so many ideas and things to share here. More to come, I promise!
