Yowzaz. 3 weeks behind.

So THIS is what it's like to have summer break as an adult.

Holy. Moly. I don't know why I didn't become a teacher sooner.

I haven't felt this content/rested/relaxed/happy in YEARS.

And it's only been 1 week.

Don't get me wrong. I've spent maybe a total of 3 hours in the last week actually relaxing. (I had a mini panic attack on day 2 of summer break because I wasn't quite sure what to do with actually having TIME.) Sitting still just isn't in my blood. I have to be moving and/or being productive at all times. So. I've already accomplished quite a few things on the to-do list.

Lovin it.

Now for a quick bumpdate.

How Far Along: 27 weeks today. But I'm backing it up to Week 26. 

Maternity Clothes: Still a good mix of both maternity and non. Although my regular shirts are a bit too short. Just ordered a few more maternity things from They seem to have the cheapest stuff that's still pretty cute!

Gender: Baby Girl Lyla. Loving this little gal. So.much.

Movement: Oh my goodness. Moves like crazy. There have been points where the blanket on top of me looks like it's jumping. So fun! And, I actually felt her hiccups for the first time this week after eating spicy salsa. Gabe was upset and said, "Aww. That's really mean." Hehe. I thought it was cute.

Sleep: Oh my goodness. I've NEVER gotten such good sleep in my life. 

Oh. Except the other night, I woke up and felt something was a bit "off". I didn't have my body pillow! Hubs had stolen it, and I tried to pry it back, but he wouldn't budge. Had to wake him up and politely ask for it back. He doesn't remember a thing...or so he says. ;)

What I miss: Being able to roll over in my sleep without feeling like a walrus. And being able to eat spicy food without feeling like I swallowed a fiery sword. 

Cravings: Beans. I've always loved beans, and I love em' even more now. 

Other crazy symptoms: Still with the intestinal issues. TMI? Yes probably. But, I'm pregnant. Nothing is TMI anymore. 

Size of Babe: Cucumber. And she's able to open and close her eyes now. And she recognizes our voices at this point. I LOVE talking to her. 

Best Moment this week:

1). Last week of school. I seriously felt like a kid again. 

*No. I do not normally dress like a cowgirl. It was country-western day to celebrate how AWESOME our students did on state assessments!!! In fourth grade, we reached 100% proficient in math and reading and standard of excellence in math, reading, and science. SO PROUD

2). Our good friends had their baby boy, Henry Anderson, this week. I'm amazed by him. He is perfect! 

3). I have spent an exceptional amount of quality time with the hubs. MUCH NEEDED.

Bump Pic:
*Went with some teacher friends to a baseball game to watch some of our girls perform at before a baseball game. So cute!
