We had a busy but absolutely wonderful weekend! We did tons of work outside including -
seeding a huge bare patch in our back lawn:

planting veggies and flowers in our new little garden

more veggies

and planting lots of other flowers in our other gardens including this butterfly bush.

I also updated the photo blog with a few more pics from the weekend so check them out here.

We also took a trip to the Car.ters outlet and got some fun stuff for Cupid at their sidewalk sale and had my parents over for dinner.

The weekend was a perfect mix of beautiful weather, time together, and productive working outside. The extra day off was perfect too!

Random Tidbits

Some random tidbits of what's been happening here: 

**OB appt was fine yesterday - kind of boring actually.  Listened to the HB via doppler, answered a few questions, and all done.  Next appt will be fetal survey ultrasound and monthly appt.

**We are NOT finding out the sex of Cupid.  We both feel like it is one of the last great surprises left in life and we want to wait until Cupid's Birth Day to find out!

**My room at work was 92 degrees today - fun times, especially for a pregnant lady!  Never mind the poor kids who had to do spring testing.  (Temps have been about 20 degrees above normal this week!)

**MJ stayed home today and worked her behind off getting course work done for an online class that is due on Monday.

**Can't wait for a three day weekend!   Going to get stuff done around here both inside and outside!

**We need to take another belly pic - put that on the to do list for the weekend.

**Only 18 more days of school until summer vaca!!!  It seriously can't come fast enough.

**There is a full moon tomorrow night which means the kids will be off their rockers at school tomorrow.

**The thunder is rumbling outside which means that a cool front is coming through - hallelujah!

Weekend Update

We had a great weekend! It started on Friday night when we picked up Olivia for an overnight. We took her to see Shr.ek F0rever Af.ter and it was really cute. On Saturday, we went to our monthly card making class and Olivia enjoyed getting to make her own set as well. We dropped Olivia off on Saturday night and then ran errands.

Today we were very busy outside - the weather was absolutely gorgeous.

My mom and dad came over and helped us get a nice vegetable garden ready to go. I can't wait to put plants in it (that is planned for next weekend.)

We got all of our "window" boxes filled that go around our back deck.

We got the gazebo set up - a wonderful place to relax out of the sun and away from the bugs.

Plus we mowed the lawn, transplanted some other flowers and filled all of the bird feeders. It was a very busy day, but so nice to get so much done! We are looking forward to a three day weekend next weekend so that we can get even more accomplished.

Next OB appt is Tuesday - 16 weeks along as of today! 21 days of school left until summer vacation.  And I just noticed that this is our 350th post!  That's all from here!

Bad Blogger

Ok, Ok, I know - I have been a terrible blogger.  Truth is, I don't feel like I have a whole lot to write about.  So, here is the gist of what has been going on....

**All is well on the pregnancy front.  Second tri is blissful - I'm feeling GREAT and it is so nice.  We had that moment this week when we realized that we are REALLY having a baby and that this little one will be here before we know it.  Now we need to get started on some stuff!

**Last Saturday we went to a 12 hour crop and we were scrapbookers on a mission!  We finished 52   12x12 layouts - we are working really hard to catch up on our books before Cupid arrives!

**Mother's Day was a much happier day for us this year than last.  We spent the day with my mom and just enjoyed the thought that we are going to be mommies soon.

**26 days of school until summer vacation - but who's counting?!

**Next OB appt is in 10 days.  We're looking forward to it.  At that appt, we'll schedule the "big" ultrasound.  However, we are team green - we are not finding out what we are having....

**We have decided to do the nursery in sage and brown - no real "theme" per se, just sticking with those colors.  Then we can add pink or blue accents once Cupid is here.

**Looking forward to going to the Sch0lastic warehouse sale tomorrow- hoping to score some good books for our home library.

So there is our update in a nutshell....

Second Trimester

We have entered the blissful time of the Second Tri!  YAY!!!  I have been feeling a lot better - not quite as tired and definitely not as nauseous.  The second tri is a nice place to be!

We have told a few people at work over the past week and everyone is over the moon happy for us.

We told our principal today and she was SO EXCITED!!!  She even started crying she was so happy for us.  It's great to work in such a supportive environment.

Nothing else much going on around here - but that is a good thing!
