20 Week Ultrasound & Gender Update

We had our twenty week ultrasound this past Tuesday. The entire weekend I was really getting excited to see our baby and by the time Monday came around, the excitement disappeared and it was replaced with fear and nerves. What if the baby wasn’t developing right? What if something was wrong with him or her? What if, what if, what…

Happy Fall Weekend

What are your plans for the weekend?  I plan on getting some projects done around the house, making a warm delicious apple crisp and seeing a long distance friend.  I absolutely cannot wait (we’re carving pumpkins!!!).  I’ve been a little obsessed with apple everything lately so you may be seeing that apple crisp show up on the blog sooner than…

Happy Weekend

What are your plans for this weekend? We’re having friends over for a cookout and bonfire on Saturday and I’m hoping to try out this this slow cooker apple crisp. In other news, we have our 20 week appointment on Tuesday!  I’m so excited but nervous!  It seems like everyone else who’s having babies have a gut feeling about their gender and I haven’t got…
