I made a huge dent in our yard work this weekend, crossing several items off our list, and it felt good to get outside and do a little work.
I was able to get 90% of the garden planted and the fence put up. This year’s crop is tomatoes, basil, lettuce, beans, onions, and peppers. Still need to get a couple of cucumber plants. The surprise addition for this year was a rhubarb plant. I haven’t had luck growing one from a root, but stumbled on some healthy looking plants…fingers crossed it keeps!
I also added a variegated dogwood to the front and replaced several plants that fell victim to last years dry conditions.
I call that a successful weekend!
Next up…mulch, a new tree, and Josh’s flagpole.
After learning we were pregnant and realizing I wasn’t going to be able to play volleyball for the next nine month, I knew I needed to find something to keep me active. I had heard great things about yoga for pregnancy, so I thought I’d give it a try.
I’m fortunate that my work offers a yoga class two days a week during the lunch hour. Now I have no excuse, I don’t have to leave the building, it’s a small class with my co-workers…a no brainer!
I’ve taken three classes so far and LOVE it! It’s relaxing, challenging, builds strength and flexibility, and just makes me feel good. I have also downloaded a couple of prenatal yoga podcasts and am anxious to get into a regular routine again…along with getting re-acquainted with the elliptical!
Took me long enough to get the reveal posted…sorry!
I won’t show you the wee-wee picture, but will share a couple others because technology is just so darn amazing!
The 3D image just blows my mind!
We have a very stubborn little man and the ultrasound tech wasn’t able to get all the images she wanted to so I’ll have to go back in a few weeks. Hoping for a more cooperative baby so she can get her images and I can get a good profile shot!
Zoey had her eight week surgery follow-up and x-ray a couple of weeks ago. She received a clean bill of health and the okay to resume her normal activities.
She was pretty excited to have her old toys back and we love seeing that sparkle in her eyes again!
I’m slowly reaching the point where I can’t wear many of the clothes in my closet, especially my dresses. I finally decided it was time to hit the mall in search of at least one dress option for work. It’s a super busy time of year for me, with some traveling so I want to look and feel good and not frumpalicious.
Mall maternity shopping was a complete bust, very disappointing. Old Navy had next to nothing and Motherhood (which I went into with much hesitation) was not my cup of tea. Lesson learned, stick with online shopping.
I really wanted this, but they didn’t have my size:
So I settled on these two (40% off, BTW!)…after MUCH debate at home (sorry Josh) and many texts to my brother (who tells the brutal truth)…identical cotton dresses, just different patterns. A little bit big now, but will be perfect mid-summer:
Today, I broke out the yellow dress. After a quick text and seal of approval from my brother, I’m feeling pretty good today!
