busy, busy, busy (an update)

The days are flying by faster than ever.  It seems like I am constantly adding little events and to-do’s to my calendar.  I have had so much going on that I never even posted a 17 week update!  oops…

Last weekend Justin and I took a trip to Mobile, AL.  We had planned on relaxing at the beach during the days and going to The Bay of the Holy Spirit Revival services at night.  Friday day was cloudy and on and off raining, so we decided to skip the beach and head to do some shopping.  Only we didn’t buy anything!  Service was great that night though.  The next morning we woke up early and decided to head to Pensacola beach.  The drive was about an hour, and once we got there and unloaded our car, we realized we were not going to be able to relax.  The temps were pretty cold and the winds were about 15-25 mph.  Sand was pelting us constantly, and we were freezing!  We ended up finding a spot on the bay that wasn’t so bad, and we stayed there for a while.  Long story short… our trip was nothing like we planned, but everything we needed.  We had so much fun laughing and talking and dreaming.  It was a great getaway for us to reconnect and enjoy each other before the baby comes.  Smile

Besides the trip, I’ve just been busy with work, editing pictures for a recent session, hanging out with different girlfriends, etc. 

Oh, and we helped my sister, Dom, and Ava get moved into a new apartment yesterday.  I love their new place… it’s very nice and spacious.  And there is a playground right outside that will be perfect for Ava.

Today is Candice’s birthday, so later I think I’m going to take a cookie cake and some ice cream over to celebrate.  It’s so hard for me to believe my itty bitty baby sister is 22!  Why do the days and years pass so much faster when you are an adult?!  Happy Birthday, Sister!!!  I love you to pieces <3

Things coming up…

  • 2 photo sessions on the calendar (1 newborn, 1 maternity).  This makes me happy Smile
  • gender ultrasound May 3rd!  It was scheduled for the 5th, but I moved it up to the 3rd so that Justin can be there.  He HAS to be with me for that appointment.  (I’m soooo excited and anxious to find out what this little angel is and give him/her a name.  I have literally been counting down the days and talking about it non–stop.)
  • registering!  After we find out the gender, I’ll have to pencil in some time to create baby registries.  I’ve already been working on a list of items that we want and need.  Although I’ve been picking up items here and there (car seat, bumbo, boppy, diapers, etc), there is still so much that we need to get!
  • 1st baby shower- I feel so blessed that two of my good friends here are throwing me a baby shower on June 4th.  It seems so soon!
  • moving.  I don’t think I have mentioned it on my blog yet, and I know there hasn’t been a public announcement yet.. but we are planning on moving back to our home town at the end of June.  I am really excited about this and thrilled with the idea that our baby will get to be around more family more often.  We are currently praying that Justin will get a great job and that we will make the right decision on where to live.
