Yes, we have hit the 7 month mark - yeah. Some how I feel like this is a big milestone. I have had many people ask me to compare my first trimester with my last trimester. So far, although I am still sick quite a bit, and quite uncomfortable, I must say those first 5 months were really hard. I hope I never have to relive those days...meaning, I still don't think I can do this again. I know that will all change once I hold my baby girl, which I am extremely thankful for!

As you can see in the pictures we have also painted the nursery - yes, it is very pink. I can usually say that I am great at picking out paint colors, but this was a flop. The debate is on if I want to start all over again. This is where Rhett gets off so easy. When we first got our house it was decided after painting our laundry room together (at 2:00 am), that was the end of painting together. We just had very different styles, so now all the painting is up to me. Rhett just gets to hear about all the grief and heartache I feel after spending so much time painting a room (seven months pregnant)I am not in love with. Oh, boy what should I do? I think in the end with all the furniture and bedding, it will look okay, but still it is just not THE COLOR!! More pictures to come as the furniture and bedding (yes, I found different bedding, but on clearance - wahoo!) arrive. Our adorable green dresser and bookcase should be here in about 2 weeks, but we just barely ordered our crib which can take up to 8 weeks. 8 WEEKS? I am due in less than 10 weeks. Hopefully it will come sooner than expected (not the baby). I am not one to leave things to the last minute so this issue has already caused a bit of anxiety. It truly will be a miracle if I don't have this baby early considering my stress level over everything right now...

Happy Valentine's Day again...

On Monday my Valentine's Day present was delivered. Rhett did such a great job finding the table I have wanted for over a year - good thing he works at RCWilley! We were in much need of a bigger table, however, I will miss the green table! Thanks babe. Here are some pics of before/after - isn't it gorgeous?

Great Week...

Rhett and I had a great week up in Park City. It was full of relaxing, Cold Stone, watching movies/tv, sleeping, eating, and of course shopping. It was a much needed break, I only wish we could have stayed longer.

For those of you who don't know my sinful addiction, I shall reveal. Coffee ice cream, especially Ben and Jerry's with Heath Bar, or from Cold Stone with marshmallows. Oh boy, I could eat it everyday! It all started my senior year in high school. I was on vacation in Hawaii and went to Hagaan Dazz. I tried the Mocha Almond Fudge and I was hooked! I will never forget that moment! For all of you who think less of me, try some coffee ice cream, and then we'll talk!

Good News and Bad News...

It was my 27 week appointment today - and the dreaded blood sugar test.

The good news...I was able to drink the glucola with no problems. Trust me, I have been so worried about how it would taste! I also prepared myself for a blood draw, little did I know it was just a finger prick - yay.

The bad news...I have high blood sugar. I will be going back next week for 3 hours of testing and lots of blood drawing. Hopefully the testing will all turn out okay and I won't have to change my diet too much! As for now, no sweets - whaaaat? I swear this little girl better love her mommy!
