Sunny in North Carolina

The past week has be simply beautiful!!! I have LOVED the spring (summer-worthy) weather that has finally rolled in. The pollen, however, can kiss it.

I walked out to my car the other morning and it looked as though a giant dust storm had rolled through. My car was coated in a heavy layer of YELLOW!!! You'd think I hadn't washed my car in MONTHS! I just bought the thing a week earlier!! It used to be all shiney but now... yuck.. and my poor husband has the worst allergies I've ever seen!!! He has to be cooped up inside at all times and even when i come home from being outside with my girls, i have to change clothes immediately due to the pollen that has settled on them. He's so horribly allergic and I feel just heartbroken about it. I hate seeing him like that- it just sucks. Who wants to stay inside all day long when its so freaking GORGEOUS outside?!?!?!? Luckily Singular used to work WoNDERS for him in the past when he was here for the summers... we just need to get health insurance so that we're not paying $200 for the Dr. visit and even more for the actual perscription... HOPEFULLY we'll get that done VERY soon.. and then all will be good again!! haha

This Summer, i hope to be able to go camping once, go hiking a time or two, go to the beach, go swimming in that beautiful, inviting pool every single change I get. (Thats right! Everyone look out for the beached whale I'm coming in!!) and explore this new state that I am in. I love being in a new area but I hate not knowing what's around me and not experiencing it all. So hopefully we'll be able to get out and do some of these things!! I love the summer, the temperature, the vitamin D, the greenery... (given i'm saying all of this now but you just wait, in a month or two I'll blog about how much I just want the fall to be here, how its too hot or too humid and my hot flashes are killing me... blah blah blah.. but i digress..)

** Subject Change **

I am currently 23 weeks and a few days along and my little guy is about the size of a mango!! He's 11ish inches long and had a very strong, loud, heartbeat!! He's moving a lot, especially before bed. People have started to notice my little belly bump coming in.. hahaha. its so funny to see different peoples reactions.. even people who KNOW that i'm pregnant still feel like they have to tip toe around it "just in case" as to not offend me and my stomach. Our bishop the other day, i swear he had his entire foot in his mouth and he was just trying to say that i was beginning to show but immediately was regretting saying anything (why i do not know.. i'm quite proud of my little bump :) it makes me happy to know he's getting bigger..) now if someone were to try and talk to me about my feet beginning to swell (which luckily they haven't started yet..) I just might to slap a hoe. hahaa. but seriously. having cankles... definately not something i look forward to.

I'm just in a good mood and happy to have beautiful weather and a healthy baby on the way!! and so instead of rambling any more.. i shall end.

peace, love, and cookiedough.


  1. That's your car??? That looks nothing like my car, I thought they were supposed to be sisters? On another note I am SO jealous of your weather and especially your pool!!!

  2. That is some major pollen, girl! I sympathize with TK. I'd be dying too!
