4th of July weekend!

Oh yeah, today is my Friday- well...sorta! I am leaving work in less than an hour and do have to work a little bit tomorrow, but I get to do it at home in my PJ's. We do have some yard work and some more yard work to do at our rental property this weekend, but other than that we plan to enjoy ourselves. Cookout, pool party, relaxing & shopping at the outlets. LOVE the long weekends with the hubby. Also, AL is running the Peachtree on Monday- this is his first time!!! I have ran twice before and definitely plan on kicking butt next year, but I didn't think I would be up for 6.2 miles being I am almost 6 months preggo. I know I could walk it for sure, but that is kind of boring. I can walk at home. I am super proud of him and know he will kick butt. I cannot wait to hit up the outlets, I am getting huge and need some cute work clothes to wear. Sucks spending so much on maternity clothes, because I have already bought quite a few items, but I just feel blah and need some cute work items to brighten me up and make me feel less huge. What are your 4th of July weekend plans?? I hope they all involve fun and that you all stay safe!

Oh the joys of pregnancy- Calve cramps!!!

OMG- I read that leg muscle cramps were normal during the 2nd trimester, but the cramps I am constantly getting in my calves are unbelievable!! Is this normal?? I mean I suppose the 24 extra pounds couldn't be helping much, but this is seriously painful. You know if you are 1 of those people who just loved being pregnant, you are super lucky, because while I am thrilled to be pregnant and feel so blessed, it is definitely not something I am loving so far.

Loving my new mommy car!!

So it was a little sad trading in the BMW, but I promised AL in 5 years if he wants we will get the super nice and spacious 5 series. Right now we need to be saving for the $1,000 a month day care and get something a little more spacious. We ended up getting the Honda Pilot Touring which I absolutely love and I think Allan is loving it too. We got another black car, but this one has the black leather interior too. It is super nice and has sooo many options.

Happy Father's day!

In Honor of Father's day, I would like to thank my amazing dad for all that he has done for me. As a little girl, you were my idol and best friend. I was your co-pilot and baby and our relationship was something I will always treasure. As I got older things got difficult, divorce, fights and other things caused us to lose our bond, but today we are close again and I am grateful. You are a great dad and father in law to Allan and I cannot wait for you to be a Grandpa to our sweet baby girl! I love you!

So hard to say goodbye...

So last week, I decide to post our car and just see what happens, well this morning Allan went to the bank and got a check. Yep, the BMW is officially sold! We are both a little sad, but happy we were able to sell it on our own. I promised in 5 years once we have a couple years of the Ridgeline Allan has being paid off, he could upgrade to the nice roomier 5 series and that made him happy. 5 years is far, but before we know it, it will be here.

So for about 3 weeks we have been looking at pilots, have it narrowed down to 2 and will decide by this afternoon and go pick up 1 of them tonight...AHHH, change is always exciting, but I always stress about any change hoping we are making the right decisions.

In Love with Gianna's wardrobe!

Ok, so Gianna's wardrobe is really coming along. Some people say I am going overboard and I constantly get the "don't buy too much", but whatever, I am buying all different sizes and this is my first baby so I am enjoying it. Since she will be born in the fall, I have been buying her all kinds of cute little hats to wear to keep her head warm and of course to photograph her in. Here are some of my favorite hats from her wardrobe...

Oh boobs, please quit growing!

Man oh man, pregnancy is causing my boobs to get HUGE! Aside from my weight gain that causes all my shirts and pants to be spandex, I tried on this nice lose fitting dress this weekend and it has the little line underneath the boobs. Well, let's just say the line wasn't where it was supposed to be this time. It was like drawing a line halfway through my boobs- I guess I won't be wearing that till after baby. haha- oh the joys!

Dear my beautiful Cantaloupe,

Oh my, I cannot believe we are halfway through this little journey together. Today is our confirmation appointment with the doctor to reveal your sex. While I will be thrilled if you were a boy or a girl, I have really got you an awesome wardrobe full of outfits, socks, shoes, hats & bows so....hoping I don't have to spend the whole weekend returning things. If I do, it is ok though, I will find plenty of cute things in blue too.

Mommy car now or wait a bit??...hmmmm

So currently our garage houses a 2008 BMW (which I drive) and I 2009 Ridgeline (loaded). They are both super nice and we love both our cars. The BMW is a sedan, but it is a 3 series and kind of small for mommy and baby. The ridgeline is plenty big, but since I would be driving to and from day care on most days it would be best for me to be driving the "main family car". The car seat will fit in the car, but it is snug. We are now in the process of deciding trade now or wait another year. Either way, it will be all good and we will be fine, but it is just such a hard decision. We have a lot of positive equity in the BMW since it has 0% interest and we want to get something pretty big and nice that we can keep for at least 6 years. We have pretty much decided that IF we do decide to go mommy style now we are going to get a Pilot Touring fully kiddy equipped.

Decisions, Decisions...they are never easy!

The nursery is coming along!

My hubby and I have been working hard on Gianna's nursery. We still have a long way to go, but the furniture is in, the walls are painted, the ceiling fan is up and I am loving the room!

So this weekend Allan and I went to babys r us and started our 1st baby registry. While I will be doing most of the registering with my best friend in 2 weeks, Allan did want to help pick out the stroller(s) and car seat, so we did that and a couple other little things. These are probably the biggest investments other than the room- which we have already started on.
