Really there is a reason...

...why I haven't been writing. We are super busy! We are closing on a house Friday and moving Saturday. I haven't had the time to blog. I've been too busy packing! I'll try to get back on here once we are all settled in to our new home. I'll be sure to post some pictures! Wish us luck!

Why, oh why...

Is there a rap song on my playlist? Weird...I did not put that there. (Or maybe that's the ghetto girl in me...)I'm going to be fixing this little 'issue' right now...sorry...

Hmmm...

...another craving? I love fizzy,carbonated drinks when I'm pregnant but I don't like the idea of drinking pop. I don't need all that sugar! So, I found carbonated water really satisfies my craving. This brand is really good. It's worth the extra cost. Anyone heard of it and tried it? If not, you should, it's really, pretty good. Or maybe, that's my preggie taste buds talking....

Wordless Wednesday

You know you're pregnant when...


...you want pickles, cream cheese and ham rolls for supper and you make a special trip to the store just to buy the ingredients for it. You also know you're pregnant when you eat a fudge bar before you eat your bacon and eggs in the morning. Actually, I would've preferred more pickles, cream cheese and ham rolls but we ran out of ham last night. =( I settled for the fudge bar and bacon and eggs instead. It wasn't the same. I think I'll be making another trip to the store before lunch time! My mouth is salivating just thinking of those delightful little bundles of yumminess...! What were some of your cravings during pregnancy? I'd love to hear about them- let me know! ;)

Updates...

Random thoughts about my life right now:

1~ Growing a baby makes you tired...that's not just a thought it's also a fact.

2~ Today felt like fall...and I actually kind of liked it. It would've been better if I could have slept all day though. Sigh...and I didn't even get a nap (or a cup of tea...)!

3~ Trying to pack while schooling two, crazy boys and being newly pregnant is hard work. Oh and making sure my tornado toddler doesn't totally destroy the house while we are doing school is just as hard.

4~ Finding the right house is hard.

5~ House hunting is still fun though.

6~ Finding what you thought was the right house but than later finding an even better house can be confusing.

7~ Weighing the pros and cons of both houses hurts my brain- literally.

8~ Than deciding on one house is nerve-wrecking.

9~ Putting an offer on a house for the first time ever is scary too. Wish us luck!

10~ I'm tired and need to go to bed. It's almost 11:00 p.m. and I haven't had a nap today. I've been up since 6:30 a.m.- oh yeah, and I'm growing a baby. Hard work.... did I mention that already? ;)

Goings on...and a SURPRISE!

I really do have some good excuses for not blogging lately, really, I do. Let me list them for you.

1~ I've been having to keep our house in tip-top shape because our landlord is trying to sell the house we are renting and the house is shown on average about 4 times a week. Ugh! Someone just buy it already!

2~ I started school with the boys. Austin does fine- he loves it. Jonathan on the other hand gives me attitude- before we even start! He knows how to do it and the curriculum is right at his level. He just plain and simple refuses to like school. Some days are good and some are well...not so good (to put it nicely). By the time I'm done for school I'd rather not blog- I'm out of energy!

3~Tim and I have started looking at houses for ourselves. Ya! We saw 6 last night. I didn't care for 5 of them....but...I LOVED one of them! So much so that I want to put in an offer NOW! Sigh...it was so homey, roomy, clean, cozy, had a huge,beautiful, fenced in yard and I could so see us there! My heart goes pitter-patter just thinking of that house...sigh...we'll see. I'm going to look at a couple more (just to rule them out) with the Realtor. Tim and I are hoping to make an offer on a house this week still. So we'll see....keep your fingers crossed for me! ;)

4~ I'm starting to pack.

5~ I'm really tired,gaggy, parts of me are SORE and my waistline has been expanding...can you guess what else is happening?! Yep, that's right- I'm working on growing baby number 4! We found out a couple weeks ago. This is our very first suprise baby! All the boys were totally planned, but not this little guy or girl. I/we couldn't be happier though. Luckily, I'm a very flexible and adaptable person! We were originally hoping to wait until this coming winter but I guess God had other plans. I'm totally cool with that. I'm due the end of April so I'll have the whole summer pregnant free! I couldn't have planned it better myself! Plus...the house I want doesn't have central air (stinks I know but the house is so worth it!) so...this could work out just great! ;)

I think that about sums it up. If I'm absent at least now you'll know why! I'm still going to be blog hopping and I'll get on here sparodically but defintely not as consistently as before. I'll keep you updated on the house hunt, the move and well...the baby! =) Have a great week my blog sista's...or brothers....I'm not going to be the one to stereotype!
