Finally, an update! :)

Well, I am here to finally update after like a month lol. Things are going really well. Still a big adjustment being here and with B's new shift. I got sick a week and a half before our anniversary with a really bad cold. It really knocked me out for the week and I am trying to make sure that I don't wear myself out again. I think that I got sick from all of the stress of moving and such. It is NO fun being sick and pregnant. I don't want to repeat it! 
I think the biggest problem for us since we moved here is trying to get on a regular schedule (is that possible for someone with a job like his? lol) and so we are feeling pretty tired now. But I think it is due to me still trying to get my bearings in the new house.

Ah, the house. Haha ;) so the house that we are living in used to belong to my grandmother and we are fortunate enough to be living in it. We have a ton of space now BUT the space is still full with boxes and drawers and closets and drawers of stuff that my grandmother "collected" over 27 years of living here by herself. She grew up in the depression and kept EVERYTHING that she came across. So it's been rough trying to unpack our things and go through/get rid of my grandmother's many collections of interesting doodads and trash piles lol. There are also more repairs that need to be made that we weren't anticipating. She was unable to keep up with the house in the last years before she had to leave (she went through chemo and began developing signs of dementia) so the stove range is not functioning and some of the plumbing in the bathrooms need to be replaced. I am so grateful though for this new place and the fact that we are so close to family. And I know that it is hard right now since we are still practically living out of boxes but things will get better. Also, when the baby gets here I know that I will have a ton of help which is very comforting. 
Even though there is a lot of changes in B'swork as well I think that it will be for the better because he was ready for a change and the town we have moved to we have absolutely fallen in love with and we are planning on staying for a while :)

Some of my family will be here today to help me try and knock more of the cleaning/unpacking out so I am pretty excited and thankful for the help!

B and I spent the weekend in Franklin for our anniversary; it was SO nice to spend three days together with no cell phones and to be able to sleep in everyday! lol 

Yup. We kept our cake top :) it actually was not bad. The cake part was kinda spongy but the icing was perfect. I didn't know if I was gonna be able to get B to eat it; he was kinda nervous haha

The weather was beautiful that weekend so it made it even better. Its been raining almost every week and every other day around here it seems. Nothing but blue skies however, when we were on our trip :) it made me happy 

I really have not been able to keep up with documenting my pregnancy the way that I wanted to :( we finally took a new pic of me the other day though!

Definitely can't hide it anymore! ;)

The ultrasound pics we got on our last visit are amazing! We had already decided to wait and find out the sex when the baby was born but when we were there it was sooooo hard to not find out. But we stood strong! lol I will try and post those pics sometime soon. Well that is a quick update. Time is flying by for sure and I am trying to keep my feet on the ground! Keep us in your prayers as these changes are going on. It would be much appreciated :) 
God is so good though and I am confident that He can take care of us; He has proven Himself faithful time and again!

Our First Year! :D

Our First Year
I can hardly believe that it has been a year since we have been married. It seems like it went by so fast but at the same time it feels like we have been married so long I almost can't remember what it was like before we were married! This year has been a year of trials (not in our marriage but in many other areas it seems) and triumphs. It has been a lot of fun getting to know each other and meshing together our habits and quirks :) He truly is my best friend and I have so enjoyed having his companionship everyday. And now what's even crazier is that we will have a little baby joining us very soon. I know that when we see our little one for the first time I am going to want time to just stop; I don't want to take a single moment for granted! I just can't believe how incredibly blessed I am. I honestly never dreamed that I would find someone as perfect as B is for me. So many times I have told B that I wished I had met him sooner but I know that everything was in God's timing and I am just so thankful that He put the two of us together :D I thought I'd put some pics from our wedding and some from this year as kind of a sum up of our year together. I hope
you enjoy looking at them!

Waiting to see me :D
It makes me smile every time I look at this pic; I was so nervous going out to see him and when we looked at each other for the first time I almost bawled lol!


Watching our slide show lol

*Sigh* best day of my life!

Well I was gonna add other pics from this year but I don't have the time. With a storm coming in my Internet is not working right so everything is loading super slow. We are hoping to take a little weekend trip, if we can, for our anniversary so I'll probably post them after that. We have our second ultrasound this Friday and we are super excited to see how much the baby has grown! I can't wait to see the little hands and feet :) 
Hope every one's Monday is starting out well, I think this is gonna be a good week :)
