Turkey Lettuce Wraps

I’ve been eyeing this recipe for Five-Spice Turkey Lettuce Wraps from the Eating Well website for a long, long time.  I think I’ve even pinned it more than once!  So, just this weekend, I finally got around to making it! These were really, REALLY good!  So light but very flavorful… and healthy too.  Justyn absolutely loved this […]

Baby’s 1st Shower Gift!

We got a big package delivered to our house last week!  I was so confused because I hadn’t ordered anything that big and there was no return address on the outside of the box.  It had my name on it and my curiosity was going to drive me nuts, so I opened it right away! […]

Bumpdate ~ 24 weeks

I decided it was time to put together a side by side comparison of these biweekly photos and I just love how this turned out!  It’s so much fun to look back and see how me and the baby have grown.  What’s really funny now is that I actually thought I was “showing” at 12 […]

Moving Pictures

Lately, whenever I talk to friends on the phone, they ask me to share some pictures of the new house.  But, two weeks just hasn’t been enough time for me to completely unpack, decorate and situate everything they way I’d like it.  I actually think it will probably take me  a few months until the […]

Family Vacation Pictures

Bodee took Carrie and I for a walk… even pointing out interesting things to see along the way! Bodee got to play in the fountains at the Scottsdale Quarter! This picture is my favorite, he just had so much fun! I could have watched him play and listened to him laugh all afternoon. All 3 […]

Bumpdate ~ 22 weeks

**Holy Crap!  If I’m this big at 22 weeks, what’s 18 more going to do to me?  Yikes.  I’m blaming it on the fact that I’m so short… I mean, I’ve only gained 5 lbs. so far, but looking at this picture I’m starting to think the scale might be a bit off! **Also, sorry […]

Bumpdate ~ 21 weeks

Our photo shoot was this last weekend and Marley was on his absolute worst behavior!  After about 15 minutes of struggling with the dog to get him to sit for just ONE picture, I gave up and had Justyn take him to the car for the rest of our session. Once Marley was settled, we continued […]

The Gregson’s Visit Arizona!

We had such a great time yesterday with my good friend from home, Jerin, and her husband, Robert.  They were in Arizona as part of a trip that Jerin won because she got some fancy-schmancy award at work.  Pretty awesome, huh? Unfortunately, I didn’t take a single picture while we were together… and because I […]

Bumpdate ~ 20 weeks

20 WEEKS (1/2 way there!) Baby is the Size of a:  Banana Gender:  Boy Food Cravings:  Iced Tea… we’re talking buckets full!!!  If I wasn’t trying to limit my caffeine intake, I’d be drinking a gallon a day! Food Aversions:  I recently bought a loaf of 12-grain bread, not knowing I would basically have to choke-down […]
