So, I really didn't intend to take such a long blogging break. I thought that confronting my block would help but life has been a bit hectic and this little blog of mine has been terribly neglected. Honestly, I have only been spending about a fraction of the time I normally do online. The strangest thing is that I still don't feel like I have gotten any thing extra accomplished with my day. Go figure!
The first exciting thing to happen these past few weeks was that we went out and finally bought a new car! I can not tell you how happy I am to finally have some wheels on the days that Dan works. I am not too happy about the payment but I guess that's just the way it works. I am also not too happy that gas prices are so incredibly ridiculous which makes road trips still hard to plan. If only I could just win the lottery!!
We also had a very special birthday to celebrate! Abby's 2nd birthday was filled with lots of family and fun. The party was on Sunday but half the party showed up the day before so it was a jam packed weekend! All the cleaning, planning and cooking was definitely worth it because Abby had a blast!
Clark's Farm on her actually birthday so she could run around and pet some of the animals. She loved it!! I tried to recreate some of the photos we took the year before but she isn't all that cooperative in front of the camera. She either doesn't look at me or she runs up to me yelling "Cheese!" which makes my picture look like this:
We were also lucky enough to have some beautiful weather so we've been trying to get outside to enjoy it. We did some Easter egg hunting and we even walked to our local beach! Abby can't wait to jump in the water!
And the biggest news! The news that I have been dying to share but wanted to tell my Grandmother in person before I told any of my bloggy buddies is......
Yup... baby #2 is on it's way! The expected due date is November 19th and I am super excited! This wasn't exactly a planned thing but it's definitely a happy surprise. This is probably the biggest reason that I haven't been blogging lately. This baby has totally wiped me out. I was nauseous day and night and just looking at the computer screen was making my world spin. Thankfully, I think I'm slowly getting past that and I'm hoping it's smooth sailing from now until November.
So, there you have it. We've been celebrating some pretty big things... birthdays, Easter, pregnancy... oh my! We've also had lots of visitors and my sister moved in. All that on top of morning sickness! But, the good news is that I'm back and I can't wait to catch up with all of you!
