1. Monday we will get to see our baby again! It’ll be our 11 week appointment and I can’t wait to see what our baby looks like on an ultrasound now that it’s bigger. With our first ultrasound it looked like a little blueberry, and I’m hoping to see that it really looks like a baby now!

2. We got our income tax return this week and paid off our one and ONLY credit card! It feels so good to just have that out of the way. We have paid off several big bills in the past year and I’m just so glad to knock them off of our list!

3. I stayed home sick yesterday because I felt so rotten, and Mathew was so sweet to buy me a rose just out of the kindness of our heart. It just amazes me at how wonderful of a husband he’s truly been. He’s been taking over laundry, dishes, cooking (some days), and even gets up to get me whatever I need. I can not even express to him how amazing he has been, and how thankful I am to have him in my life. I feel like such a burden at times because by the time I get home from work I’m useless. He really is a huge blessing to me.


1. “Morning” sickness has really gotten a hold of me the past week. At first the only reason I really hadn’t been on here was because I was always so exhausted. Now, it’s exhaustion AND vomiting. Ah, that glamorous side to pregnancy. It’s weird though, because the craziest things can make me start to gag…and then it’s all over from there. Last night was one such night, and I was able to hold down some toast after not being to hold down my dinner. I’m seriously ready for this part to be over with.

2. The cold weather is back. I hate it. I’m ready for Spring. Go away Winter.

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