"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just like people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is just like an old time rail journey ... delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."

Dear Pregnancy Widget Weekly Calendar,

How is it my child went from being the size of a cantaloupe to the size of a banana?
I think y'all are just a tad bit off.
....just saying.

Oh Well, I'm still eating a Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich in honor of TBA.

I have scheduled a maternity session for August 1st with this sweet and talented lady:

Eyes squinted, fingers crossed, wishing upon a star that Patrick will agree to pose like this:

Please DO know that I'm totally kidding. :)
Besides, I don't know where I'd find a blue garbage bag anyways.

Happy Happy Birthday to our sweet friend Lacy Jo and our crazy friend Scott!
Our crew went to Shogun's to celebrate.
What a fun night!

I asked the Chef if he had a Facebook page so I could "tag" him... He didn't answer : (

yes- I'am aware that my nose is getting huge! :)

Tonya, Lacy Jo, Me, and Scott
21 weeks- More than half way through AND I feel fantastic!
Saturday I....
 had a yard sale with my sister Emily
ate an entire cantaloupe : )
Fertilized my yard (with the help from my sweet neighbor)
Watered my entire yard
Painted my mailbox post (I wore a mask of course)
Planted a Confederate Jasmine Bush in front of my mailbox
Put a Tim James sign in my yard
washed my car
cleaned the house
Then went to Prattville's Centre for Performing Arts Dance Recital

I hope I don't lose this momentum!

No- we won't be doing ANY cheesy pictures that could potentially end up on awkwardfamilyphotos.com- okay?

I'm so excited!
