8 Goals for August {thursday thoughts}

Alright, so clearly it was a joke that I thought I'd be able to tackle one of these every week. So far it seems more accurate to try to post one of these every two weeks so maybe I'll strive for that and be pleasantly surprised if I do slightly better.

But back to the topic at hand: August! How in the world is August literally right around the corner already? Whenever I feel anxiety about Presley leaving me and starting pre-k this year I am comforted by the fact that we still have a long time until it becomes a reality. However this is NOT THE TRUTH and I've been telling myself a lie all along seeing as she'll be an official PRESCHOOLER by the end of next month. So we've got another three days before the start of another new month which will propel us deeper and deeper into the second half of 2016 (still haven't gotten used to typing/writing/saying that) so I believe now is the best time to make a few plans for the month... and possibly revisit some of those r…

Baby 3.0: 30 weeks

Things on the pregnancy front have still been great lately. Though I'm a few weeks into my third trimester I haven't hit the disparity point yet where you're just ready to be done! I feel pretty huge but honestly not horribly so yet. Sleep is weird lately but I'm still able to get a decent amount. (For example, I've been sleeping upright a lot as well as sleeping with my lamp on... both very weird for me.) My energy is still hanging in there. It's super hot outside but thankfully that hasn't been awful... we just haven't spent a whole lot of time outside this summer. I'm dreading the tail end of a pregnancy where you feel like you lack the ability to move comfortably because this time around I've got two little ones to chase around as well.

All that considered, I do feel like I've been pregnant forever this time around. I suppose that goes with the territory of finding out you're pregnant before you miss your period. I'm also very r…

Honeymoon: Getting Started

I've said it before, but I wish there was a way to chronicle every part of my honeymoon in order to not forget any of the details. It's been over 5 years now and there are so many things - big and small - that have already escaped my memory.

One of the things I don't quite remember is choosing our honeymoon destination.  I do know (thanks blog!) that it was back in February 2011 that we decided on Disney!  I mentioned going going to WDW for our honeymoon in the beginning of our wedding planning and when Tony didn't have a strong response either way, I dropped it.  We threw around all kinds of ideas -- all inclusive resorts out of the country, going on a cruise, road-tripping across the country, going to Hawaii -- but none of it really stuck.  So, three months before our wedding when we still didn't have anything planned, we revisited the topic and it was Tony who threw out Disney.  We talked about it and I wanted to make sure that was something he actually wanted …

Nine Pictures of Us {thursday thoughts}

To start out, I am already guilty of skipping a Thursday! But to be honest, with everything going on in the news and around the country around this time last week, the last thing I wanted to do was write a lighthearted blog. Now after a week or more of so much heavy in the news and around us, it feels like exactly the right thing to do.

I thought this particular blog entry would be super easy and fun... and while it did evoke "all the feels" it was SO difficult to choose just nine photos of us. Before getting started I thought nine would be kind-of a lot of photos but now I realize it doesn't do justice in allowing me to accurately show all our history OR delve into much of our present, either.

All of that considered, this was still a ton of fun. I loved going through photos of Tony and I and recalling so many happy, fun memories with my favorite person in this world. These are some of my favorite photos of us over time (though not all of my favorites) and putting these…

Baby 3.0: 27 Weeks

Here we are at the 27 week mark... that means just about 12 weeks left if Crosby shows up on the same timeframe that the girls did. Tony is still betting it'll be September 25th and I hope he's right! Though September 20th would be epic and amazing and I would remember it SO MUCH EASIER! (since the March 20th is our dating anniversary, May 20th our wedding anniversary, & February 20th is Presley's birthday) I'm also kinda hoping for September 30th, too, since June 30th is Molly's birthday.

It seems INSANE that there is still THREE entire months left... how is that possible? It already seems like I've been pregnant forever.

Crosby-related things:
I've been having these reoccurring feelings/worries/thoughts. The first one is the fear that he's not going to make it home. I'm sure this stems from the fact that I literally cannot believe we are having a boy and I'm having such a hard time picturing what that'll be like... almost to the point w…
