Third Trimester // pregnancy update #3

We're on the downhill slide, the final stretch, and Baby K could make his debut any day. At my doctor's appointment yesterday, she said I was 2-3 centimeters dilated. There's no immediate concern because one of two things would have to happen before I'm admitted to the hospital: my water breaks -OR- my contractions are [...]

Sausage and Cornbread Stuffing

If you are making last-minute preparations for tomorrow's Thanksgiving meal, you are in luck with this stuffing recipe! I blame my raging pregnancy hormones for my recent carbohydrate and protein cravings, satisfied only by Stove Top stuffing, biscuits, spaghetti with meat sauce, and peanut butter by the spoonful. Surprisingly, I've only gained a pound since [...]

Fall Mantel Decorated with Pumpkins and Family Heirlooms

Let me begin with the following disclaimer: I am NOT an interior decorator. I think our home is decorated in a traditional sense but on a simple scale. Husband hates to see useless "day-core" sitting on a shelf or table and I don't like trying to arrange them in a semi-intelligent manner. Thus, our home [...]

You’re Invited

I debated about posting this invitation because I didn't want to offend anyone, but many of you have asked about our local (Texas) shower and baby registry. Here is the information: A dear friend is hosting a baby shower in my honor Saturday, October 26 at First United Methodist Church in Joshua -- located between [...]

Second Trimester // pregnancy update #2

Reality is sinking in and I'm scared, excited, thrilled, overwhelmed, anxious, and every emotion imaginable! I realized -- while visiting Kentucky for two baby showers -- that Baby Kamden is due in 12 weeks. Y'all, I said TWELVE WEEKS! It's insane to think how quickly time has gone. How far along?:  28 weeks (only three [...]

Tasty Treats and Third Cousins | a tale of two baby showers

I feel like I've completed a marathon since arriving in Kentucky last Wednesday. My adventure began when a geographically challenged TSA agent asked me what part of Wyoming I was from ... I was wearing a shirt with the shape of Kentucky on it. Once I realized he was serious, I hurried through airport security and thanked my [...]

You asked … I answer.

A while back, I opened up the blogging hotline to accept your most curious and burning questions. As promised, here's an answer to every question .... here we go! LINDSEY asked ..... Was your pregnancy planned? Have you decided on a birth photographer? Great questions! Kamden was *NOT* planned. To say Husband and I were [...]

Refrigerator Knows Best

What does your refrigerator say about you? Since I can remember, the fridge has been a bulletin board of sorts. Growing up, my Dad worked insanely crazy rotating schedules at the coal mine, but he kept a calendar on the fridge so Mom and I would know if he was coming or going. Seriously, his [...]

Deployment to Afghanistan

In my family, cousins are close as siblings. Even though I am the only granddaughter on both sides, I am in pretty amazing company with the grandsons. On my mother's side, there is Brian (24) and Noah (12). I wouldn't trade either of them for the world, but Brian and I have had our moments. [...]

Big City Tales (a link up for the Blogger Book Swap)

This link up was really difficult for me. First of all, I can be am the most frustrating, indecisive person on the planet and it drives Husband crazy. Trying to decide what book(s) to share today was impossible. I cannot choose just one, so I chose four! Since it is the first weekend of May, [...]
