31 Weeks

I went to the doctor this past Tuesday and all is good.  Dr. Benton gave me another round of antibiotics to try to knock this mess out yet again, hopefully it will work.  I now start going every two weeks, I can not believe we are already to that point.  This pregnancy has literally flown by!  Here is my belly picture for the week.


We (as in I) carved our pumpkins the other night.  Here are a few pictures of the fun.

102609 017He decided it was more fun to use it as a screwdriver for his truck.

102609 020Trying to decide which face he wanted the pumpkin to have (this is when he decided carving a pumpkin was not fun and ran off to go play)!

102609 028The finished projects.  I decided to make one for Jacob and Colyn (even though he is technically not here yet).

Last night we went to Jacob's school Fall Festival, it was fun but very crowded.  I did not really get any good pictures because the battery died on my camera and Jacob was too busy running around.  Here is my one good shot of the little pirate before the festival at my grandmother's.

I hope to have many more pictures of the little pirate this weekend.  I hope you all have a Happy Halloween!

Weekend Full of Family and Friends

We had yet another busy weekend that flew by.  My friend Lynn from Atlanta and her fiancĂ© came into town.  We did not do much but hang out at the house.  Saturday afternoon all of Jarred's buddies came over to watch that nail biting Bama game.  A pregnant woman can not handle games like that, I swear it could have put me into labor, HA! 

Sunday we had our family up for Jarred and Haley's birthdays.  It was a good time had by all.  We cooked out and had cake.  I have been a little under the weather so I have not had a chance to upload any of my pictures from this weekend (although I did not even really take many).  I will get those up just as soon as I can. 

I know this is short and sweet, but that is about all I have to recap from the weekend, it was just pretty busy.  I go to the doctor today and I am hoping she can give me something to knock this nasty crud out yet again.  I hope y'all have a great Tuesday!

It just depends, I think we both have our certain smarts.  It is funny because we call him the CEO of our house and I am the CFO.

We do not eat out often but when we do it is usually something like Buffalo Wild Wings or Chili's.

♥ Who has the worst temper?
Oh that would be Jarred, but I am not far behind him.

♥ Who has the bigger family?
Jarred, he has 2 sisters and a brother.  I have just my one sister.  I have a bigger extended family though.

No, but they cost too much and just die, so I am okay with that. 

♥ How do you spend the holidays?
Running around like crazy to see all of our family.

♥ Who is more jealous?
That would have to go to Jarred.

Me.  Jarred has gotten better at it and even has a Facebook now, LOL.

♥ Who drives when you are together?

♥ What is "your" song?
We used to, but Jarred doesn't like that song so he always turns it off, HA!  (Again we were in high school when I pretty much made it our song).

Happy Birthday Haley!


(I know this picture is weird, but I love how we look in it, I know I am vain sometimes LOL).

To my beautiful sister-

I can not imagine life without you in it.  You are truly my best friend!  Growing up with a baby sister 8 years younger than me was sometimes hard but I never took it for granted.  I am so proud of you and proud to call you my sister.  You have grown into a beautiful young women with a great head on your shoulders.  Enjoy each moment of growing up because it will fly by so fast!  Happy 19th Birthday! 

I love you!

10 Weeks To Go!

I am 30 weeks this week, yea!  I am more and more miserable by the day but hey, it is just a part of it.  I am very blessed that God chose me to carry this precious boy and to be his Mommy.  We have been working very hard on the nursery this past week, so hopefully I can show some sneak peak pictures next week.  As for now, here is my humongous belly.


I do not even have words for it anymore!  On a good note, I was able to pick up my awesome diaper bag yesterday.  I am so excited because a friend was able to get it through a girl she knows at cost instead of spending an outrageous amount on it. Kalencom Jackie O

Last night we celebrated Jarred's birthday.  Jacob and I made him a cake (well, Jacob got bored with it and ran off) and waited on him to get home.  He had no idea I bought him anything for his birthday so to say he was surprised at what he got is an understatement.     IMG_3496  IMG_3498IMG_3500

I do not get a smile like that out of him very often!


My poor excuse for a cake (well the cake was good, the writing, not so much).

 IMG_3504 IMG_3505

I am glad he had a happy birthday.  I even let him off the hook on painting last night.  Happy Thursday!

Happy Birthday Jarred!!

P35_035  DSC01186     IMG_3084DSC_0154    

To my wonderful husband-

Today you are 29, wow I can not believe that we are already in our late twenties!  I can remember like it was yesterday when you and I were just a bunch of teenagers being young and in love, now here we are growing closer each year with our beautiful family.  Thank you for being such a wonderful husband and father.  Jacob loves his daddy more than life itself and follows your every move.  I am so proud to call you my husband and the father of my children.  I can not wait to celebrate MANY more birthdays with you! 

I love you!!

Weekend Recap

We had a pretty busy weekend that came and went.  Friday night I had GNO at Amy's house.  It was a fun time had by all, we called it a night pretty early though.  Jarred went hunting with his buddies since it was opening weekend so I was able to go home to a nice quite house.  I got a great night's sleep and went for a much needed massage on Saturday morning. 

The massage was wonderful but went by way too fast.  It put me in a very relaxed mood.  After my massage, I did a little shopping for Christmas (I am trying to be done in case Baby Colyn decides to come early) and then picked up Jacob to go watch the Bama game with my parents.  Here is my little man in his Bama gear that Trina handed down to us.

Sunday I helped with Amy's baby tea.  Morgan was generous enough to have it at her house, even though she is due in two weeks!  Everything turned out so nice.  We did primary colors because Amy and Mark are not finding out what they are having.  We are all so excited about the big surprise.  Here are a few pictures from the festivities. 


IMG_3483 IMG_3484 IMG_3488  IMG_3489IMG_3491I hope everyone had a great weekend.  I have another busy week ahead.

29 Weeks

I am getting closer and closer!  This week has been pretty busy, we started working on the nursery last night.  I can not wait to get it finished so I can show it off.  Here is my weekly belly picture.


Jarred told me the other night that he did not think my stomach could stretch any more, but oh how it amazes me to see these pictures every week and realize that it can in fact continue to stretch.  I finally got a really nice complement (other than the sweet comments y'all leave me) from a girl on Tuesday, she told me I was the cutest pregnant person she had ever seen.  That made me week!

I meant to share the sweet little elephant that I had made for Colyn last week.  Rachel has a shop on etsy,  Little Tumblebees.  She makes the cutest baby items.  I emailed her about doing my little elephant in the same fabric as my crib and she was sweet enough to do it.  So, here is a little sneak peak at what my fabric is going to be for the nursery and my cute little elephant that Rachel made.

Sorry the poor quality, it was on my cell phone.  And in case it looks pink, it's not.  Check out Rachel's shop for all her cute items.  I hope you all have a great Thursday!

I Love Fall

We had a pretty low key weekend.  Jarred's buddies came up to watch football on Saturday and we went to church yesterday.  It finally stopped raining long enough for us to go buy the mums and hay belles I have been wanting.  Jarred was able to cut the grass and we got our front porch decorated for Fall.  Oh how I love Fall!

Jacob decided he wanted to pull the hay out!


He had to ring the door bell.


My little stinker!

28 Weeks

I went to the doctor on Tuesday and of course it was very uneventful.  Although, Dr. Benton did ask where my belly came from.  Okay, I get it I am huge!  She measured me, listened to the heartbeat and sent me on my way.  She did say that my iron was low so I have to start taking iron pills again, which I kind of figured since I have been munching on ice a lot lately.  I go back in three weeks then I start every two.  It is getting closer.  Here is my belly picture for the week.


I have started my nesting phase I believe.  I am picking up and cleaning every night now.  I can not sit still anymore, I feel like I need everything to be organized.  Last night I worked on Jacob and Colyn's wreaths.  They are almost done, just need letters for their names.  I also organized Jacob's closet and got his winter clothes washed and ready to be worn.  I am hoping to have Jarred and his buddy paint the nursery next weekend, we shall see.  I hope y'all have a great Thursday!
