Won't You Take Me Back?

Monday, January 23, 2017

Excuse me for a second while I wipe off the dust from my little corner of the internet. I know it's technically still winter, but I think we're already due for some Spring cleaning around here. 

The last time I posted on this blog was October of last year. In all fairness I was just about two months pregnant and exhausted practically all the time. With the little energy I did have I just couldn't justify putting any work into this blog. I'd be lying if I said it wasn't always pulling me back in just a little bit. I continued to follow along with my favorite bloggers and now that I feel recovered from the end of the year rush, I think it's as good a time as any to get back to it.

So won't you take me back? I sure hope so, I've missed you. 

Let's start with a little update just to fill you all in on the happenings of the past four months or so. First of all, if you follow me on any social media, you may have seen that Daniel and I found out we are expecting a little girl in May. 

We've decided to name her Kensington Grace. At a little over six months pregnant I'm feeling great. I've been blessed with the most wonderfully smooth pregnancy, knock on all the wood. Her nursery is about 90% complete and we truly cannot wait to be parents. 

The weirdest part about pregnancy for me so far has been how easily I've been putting on weight. Does that sound strange? I honestly thought I would struggle with the weight gaining but I'm up almost 20 pounds from when we started and more times then not you can find me cuddled up on the couch eating all the snacks.

I plan to continue working right on up to her arrival, and afterwards as well. We are lucky to have my family so close, and that they're willing to do pretty much anything to spend time with her including staying with her while Daniel and I are working. He's been busy going to school, working as an EMT, and applying to local fire departments. Not to mention, being the cutest ever about our sweet tiny girl on the way. I feel so lucky to have such an amazing partner in this adventure. 

Our past few months have been filled with holiday shenanigans, lots of family time, TONS of eating and a whole bunch of rainy days (go home, Los Angeles, you're drunk). I've gotten pretty much all of my energy back after my first trimester, although with the third sneaking up on me rather quickly I am predicting a lot of naps in my future. 

I hope I can continue sharing here with all of you as I head into this next scary, wonderful stage of our lives. I promise to try to be better about posting, but only time will truly tell. 

Happy Monday, friends. I hope it's filled with strong coffee and cat videos. 


  1. Oh my goodness, I absolutely love her name! It's perfect! :) I put on weight really easy during pregnancy as well, it was crazy but so worth it at the same time haha.

  2. Welcome back!!! Kensington Grace is a beautiful name. Congrats on her upcoming arrival
