I'm Back!

Ok, I’m back!  I took a few weeks off for what I’m calling “Spring Break”.  It was hardly a break though as I have been running around like a madwoman trying to get things done before baby #2 arrives in eight weeks (or less)!  I’ve been working pretty diligently on finishing Rowen’s big girl room and starting the nursery!  So far Rowen’s room is almost done (just have to hang a few things on the walls) and the baby’s room is officially painted with all furniture in place! 

With that being said, it's back to normal scheduling starting today!  First up are a few pics from this past weekend…

We didn’t do too much other than declutter what felt like our entire house and the garage (ahhhh, feels so good to be organized)

Rowen attended her weekly gymnastics class…

Planted a few flowers…

Took Rowen to a local Easter Egg hunt…

And ended with weekend dying eggs for the first time (she loved it)!

I'm also back with Meal Plan Monday!  Now that it’s (finally) nice outside, we’ve busted out the grill!  I hope to be sharing more grill-friendly meals with you this spring/summer, but for now it’s much of the same…enjoy!

Monday:  Italian Meatloaf (side note, I am not a huge beef fan, especially not meatloaf, but I am trying to eat more protein so this is a step in the right direction for me!).

Wednesday:  Not cooking

That's all for now!

28 Week Update

As promised in yesterday's post, here is my most recent baby update.

How far along? 28 Weeks
Baby Size: A large eggplant
Total weight gain/loss: Ugh, no clue, but these damn Girl Scout cookies aren't helping. 
Maternity clothes? Yes.  Gotta buy some more spring stuff!
Stretch marks? Nope, but my skin is stretching so much that it feels like it's burning --- VERY uncomfortable!
Sleep: 9 hours straight every night...loving it!
Best moment this week: Going out of town this weekend...excited for a little getaway!
Miss Anything? I miss regular clothes!  
Movement: Yes!
Food cravings: Sweets...trying my best to stay away!
Gender prediction: It's a BOY!
Looking forward to: This whole thing being over...I hate being pregnant!
Differences this time around: Unlike with Rowen, we really don't need to buy much for this baby other than clothes, which is really nice - we have almost everything we need!
