remembering how it all started

this is us the day we found out we were expecting. my mom was in town and we took her to an alabama football game. i just remember sitting there, and every so often would get this giddy feeling in my tummy that "omg. we're really pregnant." it's bizarre to look back on, but fun to see this picture and know that i will always remember that day.

we've come a long way since then. there are so many things that have gone on since september that it's kind of crazy to think about. most recently, my sister got re-married! jeremy and i now not only have a nephew from rachel, but a new brother-in-law and niece. it's fun to have a little girl around... although, every time i see lexie, she looks just a little bit older. and she is much too cute for her own good!

i was also in a wedding this past weekend. one of my best friends from college got married in huntsville to her perfect partner. and what a weekend it was. i don't know that i've ever met so many people at one event as i did at this one. it was nice to get out and mingle with old and new friends for sure.

at home, we're just trying to wrap up a few projects that have been lingering about. in january (i think), we had an outside pipe burst, flooding our utility closet and causing it to leak into our kitchen. thank goodness for insurance and a very handy husband who took it upon himself to do some drywall work and everything. he's done a good job, and even thought it's four months later, it's finally coming to an end!

i'm trying my best to get things organized inside the house. we're trying this new thing where we de-clutter every night before we go to bed. so far, we've only gotten one room into this process, but i plan on getting some other rooms fixed up this weekend. it's time to have a clean house before the little one makes his big debut.

we have a seemingly quiet weekend planned. a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning at 8:15... and it's supposed to be gorgeous weather around here. perhaps it's time to sit on the back porch and get a little sun...
