A quick little BIG update

Oh, hey! Man alive I have been completely MIA! How is everybody?!

This post is all over the place, so bear with me. Also, I am having serious issues with my photos on the blog. All of my old posts have random photos and they are all in wrong places. There is no way I am going to back and fix them all so it’s just going to have to stay that way. On this post, chances are you will be looking at sideways and upside down photos until I can figure out what’s going on. Yikes.

We are great over here. Bode will be two years old next month! He is talking a TON now, running around with endless energy, making us laugh, and impressing us everyday. It’s amazing how such a small person can brighten your day so much and be so funny!

Jasmine went through two months of puppy training and is doing great! We still have a bit of training to do but we are getting there. She is a very sweet girl and puts up with a lot from Mr. Bode man.

This summer was awesome. I’m not even going to try and sum it up in a nutshell; it was fab!

Dana and I took a trip to Lake Tahoe just the two of us about a month ago now. If you’ve never been to Lake Tahoe, book a trip now (book through my husband of course). It is one of the most breathtaking places I have been.

We had such a relaxing time. We ate tons of great food, walked around, drove around the whole lake, went on a boat ride on Lake Tahoe, and were in bed between 8-9:30 every night. How’s that for crazy?

(Dana had shoulder surgery a few days before our trip. He’s all good now and was a total champ the whole weekend.)

I’ve been trying to get myself back in the kitchen after a bit of a hiatus this summer. Some of our dinners as of late:

Paleomg’s spaghetti squash pizza pie:

Skinny Taste’s Bang Bang Shrimp:

There hasn’t been much, if any, recipe creation over here, but I am sure good at following recipes!

Let’s see, what else is new…

We have been busy rearranging rooms in our house to make room for a BABY BOY!

This post is obviously long over-due because I am due next month! October 22nd is my guess date. This pregnancy has been so smooth just as my pregnancy with Bode was. I have felt great, stayed active, and am blown away as each week passes by so quickly. We are talking to Bode about having a baby brother but pretty sure he doesn’t quite get it. He will soon enough! We unsure of names but think we have it narrowed down to two.

My “cravings” this pregnancy have been:

  • Pickles
  • Bagels and cream cheese
  • Caesar salad (hold the anchovies in the dressing)
  • Fruit gummies

How’s that for random? I haven’t really had any aversions this pregnancy. All safe food is fair game really.

That about does it for this quick little BIG update. Next time I check in, we will more than likely be a family of four!
