Since we came back - I have aprox. 8 weeks until the second baby is due. My stomach grew like at least 5 inches while on vacation. I know some women love being pregnant and I hope I don't offend anyone by saying this, but I am pretty tired of being pregnant and there is realyl nothing that I really enjoy about being pregnant. Ok - I'll try to think of the positive and not complain - I love that my skin is so clear, I haven't had to wear make up and my face doesn't really break out at all - and my hair is super healthy. But I am really starting to get uncomfortable and now that I know what it all is like, and the amazing feeling the first few weeks of not being pregnant - I cannot wait to have that agian. I can't wait to sleep comfortably, walk comfortably, eat comfortably, and start the process of running and losing weight instead of constantly gaining weight no matter what I try to do.
I have so much to do before the baby comes though. I have tons of organizing to do with our upstairs, with our clothes and extra room, and toys and arranging everything. But what I'm really trying to do is get through one month and a week of work. UGH!!!
And our whole family is really anxiously waiting the cooler weather now. I had a great summer of fun in the sun - but now i can't wait until my favorite season - FALL!!!!

We just got back from a wonderful trip to VA Beach!!! So much to talk about with even how this all came about. We have great friends from College that live there. Richard's good friend and my best friend. In college there was a group of 4 guys that all hung out, prayed together and really challenged each other - Mike, Wes, Dan, and Richard. when we graduated the same year at college they committed to stay connected and to pray for each other and hold each other accountable through the many years of life. Well it's been 4 years since College graduation. We have all been in each mother's weddings, (except for dan, who we're still waiting on to get married). But we haven't seen each other since the last wedding almost 3 yrs ago. (all the wives sorta get thrown in the mix, but we really get along great to0). So a while ago we decided to plan this major tirp to VA beach and all committed to making this happen. when we started planning it we didn't realize there would be a 3 month old, a 4 week old, and a 31 week pregnant lady in the bunch, but we still all made the effort, and it was well worth it. Great group of friends with great memories to talk about, and making great memories.
Great time at the beach a couple days, Great food and coffee, and great talks were had by all.
God blessed us with awesome godly friends - and we are so thankful for them, and their encouragement to us. We have all gone our own ways - but we still make an effort to keep in touch.
And I was most happy b/c I got to visit with my best friend who is also there with her husband, and their new baby. sadlly i didn't take any pictures of them - I'll have to wait until she sends them to me.
