24 Weeks

It's May!!! I cannot believe how fast this pregnancy is going by!!! I am 24 weeks and I am definitely starting to show it.
This last weekend was amazing, my husband decided we needed an "In town Getaway" is what he called it, (he came up with that all on his own, so cute!) It was so nice and definitely needed, we were able to just relax and do whatever with no agenda, how nice is that! We tried out a couple new eating spots, saw a movie, went to the pool, and started registering for Bowden. It was a mixture of downtime and fun all in one! I loved it, we are about to get very busy this next month, so Lance thought it would be good to get rested up and rejuvenated. Our students will be graduating in 3 weeks, for which I'm thrilled and sad at the same time. I know I have talked about what we do once or twice in my blogs but we work for a discipleship program called, Masters Commission where students give 9 months of their life to God, through ministry, serving, learning His Word, missions trips, evangelism, and so much more! I'm excited because watching God totally change their lives from one end to the other has been incredible and to see them live it out after graduation is exciting but also heartbreaking for them to leave us. But I will not shed tears yet (even though being pregnant doesn't help) We still have 3 more weeks!

Along with a great weekend, I got an early Mother's Day present! Lance bought me a necklace that I have had my eye on for a lil bit, it's from Etsy and it has our lil guy's initial "B" on it. I love it!

 So I guess you can say I'm one blessed lady!!!
 The one downfall I must tell on myself is I have been going a lil too crazy with the sweets, so I decided to change my eating habits and the amazing thing is that I'm actually sticking to it! Plus my food cravings have also taken a turn for the better which helps. I'm not gonna lie, I really like Starbucks java chip frapp and with the mocha coconut frapp coming back, it might be even harder to stay away, so I'll probably treat myself occasionally (it's only fair, if I'm doing such a good job eating right) Plus you can't beat Starbucks Happy Hour!!


WEIGHT: 118.5 (I guess I could round it up but thats what the scale says, and at this point numbers going up is kind of scary lol)
FOOD CRAVINGS: Strawberries and Almonds (I pretty much hated almonds before I was pregnant, so this one is really weird to me)
SYMPTOMS: Nothing new, I have had back aches here and there, and been tired
WHAT'S NEW:  Having mixed emotions of anxiety and excitement, its kind of a roller coaster of emotions, which I guess is normal
THINGS I'M LOVING: This week I literally saw my belly move, I can normally feel Bowden but he moved so hard I saw my belly move it was crazy!
