Two months in

Please forgive the 2 month blog hiatus, but I just had a baby. Enough said. :)  Well, we are over 2 months into this baby thing and we are getting the hang of it!  To be honest, I had a really hard time in the beginning but I am finding such joy in being a … Continue reading

Keaton’s Birth Story

Keaton’s Birth Story

The weekend of September 6-7, I just felt awful.  Sure, I was 39 weeks pregnant and that’s to be expected, but I had several signs that labor was starting, including sporadic contractions and was just READY! I wanted the weekend to rest so I left work early that Friday and sweet coworkers prayed over me … Continue reading

Recent happenings and thoughts

Recent happenings and thoughts

Well here’s the biggest mish-mash of “life” ever, but this is just about how our real life is these days. Even though I have totally dropped the ball on keeping up with our Bumpdates page, I’m almost 37 weeks now and potentially just 3-4 weeks away from meeting our baby boy.  It’s all flown by … Continue reading

I’m pretty sure after this week, I won’t have the energy or patience to do this until after Keaton is born, so I’m glad I made this Super Doubles week count!  Here are several of my trips to Harris Teeter and how I did.  And, just a disclaimer that we do way more grocery shopping … Continue reading

Master Suite Updates

Master Suite Updates

When it rains it pours!

When it rains it pours!

…In a good way! We’ve been super busy lately, but with all good things!  In a matter of about 9 days we had my sister fly in from LA, my best friends from Charleston drive up for a weekend, an ultrasound of baby Keaton at the Dr, a baby shower in Raleigh, and a week … Continue reading

Going back to work

Going back to work

Aaron and I are getting over a full week (or more like two) of being sick with a cold.  I lost a full week of productivity and that’s super frustrating to me.  I had to get ready for father’s day (with two dads), Aaron’s brother’s birthday, my dad’s birthday, friends coming in from South Carolina, … Continue reading

Another great Super Doubles week

Another great Super Doubles week

You know I love my Harris Teeter and Super Doubles and this time didn’t disappoint!  I’m just a bit too sleep deprived to do my usual 6am trip so I went to the HT near my office during lunch on the day it started so I could at least get there before the afternoon crowd. … Continue reading
