Days like today make me wish I lived close to family.

Fred has been doing a certification all weekend and after he finished this morning, he had to head to work until 7. Which meant that for me - when church was out at noon...I was on my own.

Normally - I love this time to myself. I love being able to watch my shows, do the laundry, or go sit by the pool for a bit but today not so much. I found myself lonely. No one to play with and no where to ride my bike to.

I found myself wishing and wanting to be able to plop myself on my mom or sister's couch and talk to family and nephews, to tease Easton about giving me a "Christmas Snuggle" (to which the answer is always NO!), or just enjoy a Sunday dinner with family.

Instead I watched a million episodes of Grey's Anatomy (season 2), made jello (with homemade whipped cream from the Our Best Bites Cookbook), and texted Fred about coming home to entertain me.

Poor. Pitiful. Chana.

On my mind...

a lot of things are consuming my mind these days. It's a big giant jumbled mess of sentence fragments. half ideas. and random thoughts.

Here are a few of the things I can't get OFF my mind:

I haven't had any weird cravings thus far in the pregnancy but one thing that is constant is my need for frozen treats. Popsicles, frostys, Otter Pops, etc - oh I'm drooling just thinking about it. This popsicle maker sounds like it would make all my dreams come true - in like 10 minutes.

Why can't I get enough of this crib? And why do I have to have such expensive taste? We went from most likely getting a hand-me-down crib to probably going to buy one and of course I love this one. We won't be buying anything for a couple more months so I'm hoping I'll hate it by then. *fingers crossed*

Mykonos, Greece

This was one of the stops on my European tour the summer after I graduated college and I am dying to go back. I crave the gorgeous water, white washed buildings, and beautiful scenery.
Note to Fred: take me there. Any time in the next couple years is fine with me. Yes they have golf.

Just over a month until Fred graduates!!

We're so close to being done!! Fred is beyond excited to get into the golf industry full-time and I'm excited to be DONE with school!! He'll still go through the PGA program - but hey it isn't the same! With this one also comes the question of - what next? Where should we go?
Cross your fingers we can find a great job, great pay, and will live happily ever after.

What's on your mind?

Wow. I am completely overwhelmed and touched by the outpouring of love and support from all of you.

Thank you! 

My pregnancy has been a breeze so far but it seems that after Friday, my hormones decided that since I was just about 5 months pregnant it was high time to elevate and make me an even bigger bawl baby. Let's just say it's been an emotional weekend where anything and everything involved with a little boy makes me tear up.

I will try to not turn this blog into a blog solely about my pregnancy or solely about little Freddie but know you'll have to suffer through some of it.

Here are some of his 19-week shots:

this one is my favorite

The Desert

Today I'm sick of living in a desert. I'm sick of the dust. everywhere.

I'm trying to go through my closet to box, donate, and dejunk and everything is dirty/dusty. Everything.

My shoes that haven't been worn in awhile are dusty - dusty!!
The tops of my hangers? Dusty.

Clothing that hasn't been worn in the last while - shoulders are dusty.

Dresser in my closet - dusty.

It's a joke.

It's the same all over my house. I dust and vaccum regularly and still...dust.

I can dust on a Saturday and by Monday I have a thin layer of dust on my coffee/end tables. I've never been more annoyed.

What is the solution?
