First Day of Preschool

Will did great and loved preschool today!  

Since I couldn't take him this morning, I made him some muffins and left him a special note!

Nana and Daddy took him this morning and dropped him off.

So proud of my big boy!

The Night Before Preschool...

Twas the night before preschool,
Will is tucked into bed.
His clothes are clean and ready,
for his wonderful day ahead!

(I bought Will this book and we have been reading it today. )

Tomorrow is the big day...Will starts preschool!  He is going to a local church for their preschool program from 8-12.  I am really excited for him and I just know that he is going to love it! 

I can't go to drop him off tomorrow because it's my first day of school too.  Bryan and Nana are taking him.  I have given Bryan specific instructions on the pictures that he needs to take.  It's a big day!

  I really can't believe I have been starting school for 12 years!!!  I really don't get nervous anymore, I love getting a new group of kids and getting to know them.

Consignment Sale

Last night, I went to the big children's consignment sale at a local church.  Once again, I racked up!  Will got several pairs of jeans, shirts, and sweaters.  The most exciting purchase for Will was another Panthers jersey!

Of course, I bought my little girl a few things!

She's already spoiled but I just loved all the pink and cute little outfits.  My favorite for her was the gold sparkly shoes!

Another successful year!  Can't wait for the next big sale!

It's a...


We had an awesome appointment today!  She was moving around and trying to suck her thumb.   All her parts are there and she is growing like a weed!

 We are so excited to be having a little girl!  Will has said all along that he was getting a little sister.  I guess he knew what he was talking about.

Are You Ready 4 Some Football????

Will is all about football right now. We have to play every night, watch all the games on tv, and put on all his "gear."  He wears a bicycle helmet, gloves that we cut the fingers out of and tennis shoes.  Now he can wear his new jersey that we bought him this weekend!  He loves it!

For a two year old, he has an arm on him already!

Lake Lure

Bryan didn't go to work today so that we could have some fun before I go back to work on Monday.  We took Will to Lake Lure which was great!  They have a park that includes a beach and a splash pad.  The weather was perfect and Will loved it!

Pretty view at lunch!  It's hard to see, but that's Chimney Rock.

Pregnancy Update

I know I kind of threw out to you some really big news and then I never spoke of it again.   Not sure why but how about an update?  

First trimester:

No sickness!  Only felt nauseated when I would allow myself to get too hungry.
Speaking of hungry, I was hungry every two hours it seemed like but I really tried to snack on healthy snacks.
 No weight gain
Really tired and loved an afternoon nap.
Waking up to go to bathroom several times a night already!
Headaches several times a week.
I was on extra hormones for the whole first trimester to help keep up my progesterone levels.

11 Weeks Ultrasound!

2nd Trimester:

My energy is coming back.  No more naps needed unless it's Sunday afternoon!
Weight gain of around 5 lbs.
I did purchase a few beginner maternity pants and shorts at a consignment shop because my pants are getting just uncomfortable around the waist.  I have several friends who are going to let me borrow some maternity clothes to help me out.  
Not as many headaches.
Not as hungry as often.
I do get short of breath sometimes during simple task such as playing with Will around the house or outside.
No cravings so far! But I do have a newfound love of things Buffaloed with blue cheese dressing.  (Never use to eat this before!)
Sadly, my face is breaking out.
My feet are bothering me.  They get so tired by the end of the day.  I might have to invest in some good shoes (not cheap, flat flip flops).

That's about it for now.  My next doctor appointment is August 23 and we will find out the gender of the baby.  I can't wait!

I may post some belly pics later but not much to show yet.

I want to drink like Roxy does...

Sure, why not??? 

Looks like fun doesn't it?  Well, for a two year old, this was fantastic!  

(In case you don't know, Roxy is our dog!)

Lunch Date

Today Will and I went to eat lunch with Bryan.  Unfortunately, Bryan works about an hour away from home so we don't get to do this very often.  We went to a Mexican restaurant because Will loves a cheese quesadilla!

Bryan's office building is right behind Joe Gibbs racing shop so we decided to stop and show Will the race cars.  They have a really nice lobby with cars sitting around for people to see up close.  Then you can overlook the actual shop where the guys are working on the cars.  Will loved it!
