1. We got to see our baby this week! Baby VMW is getting so big and actually looks like a baby now! Unfortunately for us, my doctor didn’t print out a sonogram picture this time, but I had Mathew video tape our appointment on my phone. Here’s a short clip of what our baby looks like and it’s heartbeat. We’re in love!

2.  Today is a half day at work, and at 11:30 I’ll officially start my SPRING BREAK! Hallelujah! I love my students to pieces, but I definitely need a break to just relax and rest up for the rest of the school year. I don’t have any plans for the break and I’m absolutely thrilled about it. However…I am used to going to theme parks for Spring break, and I can’t ride rollercoasters…so I need to find another way to have fun this break.

 3. I’ve stopped puking! It’s been a whole week of not throwing up and it’s been glorious. I hope I’m on the upside of things!

4. I FINALLY am a Starbucks Gold Card holder! I have been waiting for this FOREVER and finally got all my stars today when I bought myself breakfast. I’ve always wanted a gold card of my very own with my name on it. Now I will!


1. I apparently have more acne now than a pubescent 12 year old boy. I’m not sure why they call it a “pregnancy glow” because it’s a lieeeeee! My face is totally broken out and I ended up buying an electric face cleaner AND toner to hopefully combat it. Dang hormones!

Now it’s your turn to link up! Tell us about the Happies and Crappies from your week!

  1. Congrats on getting to Gold Card level at Starbucks! Gold card opens up a whole new world of possibilities… they send you so many great deals it is INSANE!! I love my gold card! Also equally awesome that you have stopped puking!! For so many of my pregnant friends that has been one of the highlights of their pregnancies… when the puking stopped!

  3. Wahoo for spring break AND THAT GOLD CARD!!! I’ve always wanted one! And I’m not sure how it works on pregnancy skin, but my clarisonic seriously cleared up my skin like no other. Best investment ever. This is my first time linking up with H&C and I’m super excited!!
