25 Weeks

How Far Along: 25 weeks
Size of baby: rutabaga--I have no idea what that is! :)
Weight gain: 6lbs.
Maternity Clothes: All bottoms and tops are still a good mixture.
Gender: BOY! Tucker John
Movement: Yes! This week was the first time that either his head or bottom was pushed up against me to the point where it was kind of uncomfortable. As long as he is comfortable I"m fine! :)
Sleep: Sleep good expect for the HORRIBLE nightmares I've had this catching on fire, friend died, plane crashed into my mom's house with my whole family inside...And I don't watch or read scary things before bed.
Symptoms: Still feel so great! Only thing that I've started to have is heartburn...but hopefully it's true and he'll have some hair! :)
What I miss: Dunkin Donuts Coffee
Cravings: Nothing really...but it's bad that all this candy is around for Halloween!
Best Moment this week: Talking with our good friends M and J about how fun it's going to be when our babies are here and all the fun things we can do together. Also, the Mr. and I have had fun talking about traditions we will start when TJH comes!
What I am looking forward to: The nursery is in full swing! So I cannot wait to share it with you all when we have completed it! Also praying that I pass my glucose test next Friday. The Halloween candy must wait until later! :)

Phone Dump!

Just some random pics from this past week and our field trip!

Okay, so I got this from my bff's so gross but her text and the Mr. should do this for your maternity pics! ha!
I think she found it on Pinterest but I don't have the source. The Mr. sent it out to a bunch of friends and family asking what they thought about us doing this! It was a joke but some I think thought he was serious! ha!

So on Tuesday we took 90 2nd graders to a pumpkin farm! It was a lot of fun, but boy was I tired when I got home!!

They got a pumpkin!
They got to pet some animals in the petting zoo!
We went on a hayride and was taught how the farm grows their pumpkins!

The farm even did a pig race for us! I had NEVER seen a pig race in my life! ha!
 Overall it was a great field trip!!

This is only part of my class.

This is growing in our to see Spring colors in the Fall...kind of reminded me of Breast Cancer Month! :)

And of course I couldn't do a picture post without a pup! I miss her sweet face while I'm at work...I'm going to be a wreck when I have to leave Tucker!

Happy Birthday M!

Happy  Birthday M!!!
M and I have gotten so close over the past two years! She is an awesome friend! Always thinking of others and is super fun! We've had a lot of fun over the past couple of months because she is 5 weeks ahead of me! She will have a baby girl in the end of December/beginning of January! :) Hopefully our sweet babies will be best friends like us! Or they might even fall in love when they get older! ha!

We had a chance to have M and J over last night for dinner to celebrate!! It was so fun to catch up and eat the yummy meal the that Mr. prepared!

I cannot wait until next Saturday because I'm throwing this sweet girl a baby shower for her sweet baby M! ;)

Happy Birthday M!
 Thanks for all the great memories so far! I know there will be a ton more in the future!

Random Tuesday

These have started at our house and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!:
I love fires in our home...make things soo cozy!!

Do you see a kitty?: 
Our neighbors kitty loves to lay in our flower beds. The Mr. caught him/her? laying there and couldn't resist taking a picture! It's a nice kitty so we don't mind. :)

Ethel got a hair cut last week and it's my favorite she has gotten! SOO cute!: 
Lucy and Ethel love to lay in the sunlight in our house! Such sweet pups!

We are going on a field trip today to a farm! The kids will get to go on a hayride, pick and pumpkin and go to the petting zoo. Can't wait to see how excited they get! I bet I will be soo tired tonight!! I'm sure I'll have some funny stories too! :)

2 Baby Bumps!

So our good friends J and J are expecting a little boy 8 days after us! How neat!?!? The Mr. and J grew up together in church and have stayed good friends. They were in each others weddings. And I've gotten to know J over the years since her and J have been together. Such a nice couple! We really enjoy spending time with them and are so happy they are back in GA!

They moved back this past Spring, so now they are only 2 hours away from us. They had a housewarming/football party on Saturday and we went and had so much fun!

It was great to catch up in person and talk about preparing for our boys! We swap texts all the time, but to see each other was so fun!

Can't wait for our two boys to grow up together and be good friends like their daddys!

Boppy to the Rescue!

This has been a complete life savor!!

The Mr.'s mom, my sweet MIL, found one last week for me at a garage sale. She took it home and cleaned it up for me.

My back had been bothering me pretty bad in the mornings after waking up. I knew it was from sleeping because it would go away after a couple hours of waking up. But since I've been sleeping with the Boppy I have had WAY less back pain!!! WHOOHOO!

Amazing that this pillow helps so much!
Thanks MIL! :)

Whew is right!

I made it through 15 conferences yesterday! Only 6 more today!

It was a long day but I came home to some sweet treats!

The Mr. had gone to the mall to look at the baby bedding we thought we might want to get. He ended up deciding he didn't care for the bedding. But he did pick up two dresses for me! So sweet! We don't have a Gap Maternity close, so he was able to shop for me there! I looked online to try to find the two dresses, but either they are so new they aren't on the website or they just aren't on there. But I LOVE them! One of them I'll be able to wear to my bff's rehearsal dinner in November in Disney and the other one is just so darn comfy but SOO cute!

And he made me apple cider to have since it has gotten so cold here!

It was overall a great day!

Looking forward to finishing up conferences today!

It's Wednesday!

Head over to Life After I Dew to link up!

So What If...
  •  I'm loving my new OPI color that the Mr. picked up for me! SO sweet!
  • I'm still on a Granny Smith apple and carmel thing right now.
  • I long for a weekend at home with no plans so I can get some things done for sweet Tucker.
  • I need to have my rings professionally cleaned and checked out.
  • The weeks are going by faster at school...this is a good thing!
  • I've decided I want the nook color...the whole magazine part is really what sold me. Now that I'm a big Parents reader...I could read that on the nook along with books!
  • I press snooze about 5 times before actually getting out of the bed...sleep is so precious right now.

Yoga Belly

So the one thing that I'm loving so much right now is Prenatal Yoga...I know I've mentioned this before. But it's just great!

It's offered two times a week and right now I'm only able to go once a week due to my CRAZY schedule...but I'm hoping I can attend more over Christmas break and before Tucker arrives.

I snapped this picture last week before I ran out the door to yoga. Tucker seems to enjoy it too! :)

I'm glad I was able to go last night because tomorrow starts the crazy three days of parent/teacher conferences. I'm hoping they all go smoothly and I can enjoy the upcoming weekend.

Fall weekend in the Moutains!

How was your weekend?

Ours was filled with fall things...festivals, yummy fall food, pumpkins, dirt roads and fun!

Saturday we attended the Dahlonega Gold Rush was filled with lots of fun! I didn't take my camera because I would have had to carry it around all day. But we had a great time walking around, listening to live music, watching the parade and eating yummy food!

Sunday we got up early and headed out to Burt's Pumpkin Farm! It was so much fun! I CANNOT wait to take Tucker next year!!
Just love this view!

Lazy dogs!

The Mr. and LK being silly!

Dad with three of his four girls! (We missed you B!)

Two littles!

SO many pumpkins to choose from!

The two(well three) of us!

Our perfect pumpkin!!

The Mr. with all of our goods at the end! O and we walked away with a pumpkin roll and boiled peanuts!

Then we went driving...we did this last December when it snowed a ton! This time it wasn't snowing but the the trees were changing so it was a different kind of beautiful!

What a wonderful way to celebrate fall!
