Well, that’s a pretty intense title. This post has got a lot of hype to live up to. Too bad I’m evil and going to make you wait until the end of this post.
Yes, you can certainly scroll down to the bottom if you want to hear the big news. Go ahead, it’s okay.
But first, a few other life and random updates 🙂
- We went to our first Halloween celebration last weekend. It was a Trunk or Treat.
As I’ve mentioned, oh just once or twice or a hundred times on this blog, I live in the middle of nowhere. Growing up you had your choice of a million neighborhoods to trick or treat at and almost all houses would participate. Come to find out my poor husband NEVER trick or treated as a kid. As a result of almost nobody having neighbors in this area, Trunk or Treats have become popular around here. I took Davy with his friend Korey to one put on by the local police/public safety and it was small, but adorable and fun.Davy’s astronaut costume was a big hit with the police officers. They made “the astronaut and mom” get up in the police car to take pictures of him. I was mortified, “can’t you just take it of him?”. 😉
- We redid our bathroom! When it comes to interior design I love to think I’m amazing at it. I used to want to be an architect and interior decorator as a kid. My two best friends and I would pretend we were on Trading Spaces (remember that show?!) and our poor parents had to deal with it. We took an old sheet and splatter painted it covering my front driveway with paint to create a slip cover. I took plastic beads and glued them onto an old lamp to “revamp it”. My parents even let me paint my room a deep purple, then a few years later, a bright fire engine red… “if you can do it yourself, you can do it”, so trust me, we did it.
Now, as an adult, I realize that decorating is really just extremely expensive. I’m better at envisioning ideas than actually executing them and if I can actually come up with a really awesome idea, it’s probably costs way too much. That being said, our small bathroom was a project we could achieve. I have been dying for my husband to help me make some cool things out of pallets and this pallet shelf seemed like a good place to start. He painted the whole bathroom, put up a new shower curtain and added new beautiful dark bronze fixtures to everything. The best fixture? The toilet paper roll that even my husband and son can manage to refill themselves. MAYBE. And of course, the best part. The beautiful pallet shelf to house our bathroom de-stinkers, extra toilet paper and a chalkboard sign ever so politely telling you to, “Seat Yourself”. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out if I do say so myself.
- I’m dying from allergies at the moment. More specifically, asthma. Does anybody else suffer from this? I have never understood what it’s like to really have asthma until now. It’s scary! I will be sitting still or laying in bed and just can’t catch a full breath. I am using my rescue inhaler the maximum I am allowed and am waiting on a new prescription to try out, but any tips you have or medicines that worked for you that I can ask my doctor about would be appreciated!
My poor puppy is suffering too. He got a fresh new haircut for the fall to try and help combat it. Every fall and spring he gets itchy and destroys his back and fur. The groomers cut him real short to try and help and he looks very handsome (for about three weeks until he starts licking and itching again). Any tips from dog moms who have been through this would be appreciated too!
- …5 and 6. Alright, alright. I can’t wait any longer. Numbers 4, 5 AND 6 on Sunday’s list of Six Things is the big announcement. Because it’s big enough news to take up three bullet points in and of itself… In case you don’t follow me on Instagram and already know…
As many of you know we had a miscarriage last summer (check out this post if you’ve struggled with it too or want to know about my experience) so we are especially thankful to have a healthy, wiggly, kicking little GUY who is now 20 weeks old. I have put off telling the Facebook and Insta world because of our past struggles, but I feel comfortable now!
It hasn’t been an easy pregnancy, but more on that will come later. I just told my son yesterday that he is going to have a baby brother. He really wanted a baby sister (he already has a big brother) but is now really excited for a brother once I reminded him of all the gross things and wrestling they can do together.
I had him open this little PJ onesie that says “Little Brother” to find out what we’re having and now everytime we come home, he gets it out and keeps it near him in the living room, then when we leave or go to bed he hangs it up in his closet. 🙂 Now that we know it’s a boy, I try to talk to my husband about baby names and feel like I’m straight out of Friends.
“Zeus,” says the hubby. Veto. “Mad Max” Veto. “Poopy Fart Head,” chimes in Little Davy. Veto…. #thisismylife #surroundedbyboys 😉
What kinds of pregnancy posts would you like to see? I’m thinking “First Trimester Struggles”, “How My Workout Has Changed” and “Trying to Eat Healthy While Wanting to Throw Up Everything Except for Bagels.”
