It seems as though my brain is quite foggy and for some reason studying just isn’t entertaining enough! So what else does one do…pull out the camera and take pictures of bubbles!



Weekly Bump-Date

What week?  Week 8

How am I feeling?  Well…for the most part I feel pretty good.  My only complaint would be EXHAUSTION!  And a little mid-afternoon sickness here and there too.

Weight gain?  2lbs…and my favorite jeans are getting to be not so comfy :(

Food likes or dislikes?  I want Taco Bell like crazy! Not the best thing out there…so I am trying to resist and opt for healthier choices.  Not really digging any sweets right now…and for me that is STRANGE!!!

Doctor’s Appointment?  Had my first appt. on Monday (1/23) and my next appt. and u/s is 2/20 :)

Want to know a secret???

Well…life has been a little like a spinning top around here! 

So here is a quick recap before I fill you in on my little/BIG secret :)

My mom had bilateral knee replacements 2 weeks ago.  This has kept me running back and forth like crazy.  Following her surgery she was transferred for inpatient therapy.  Recovery is a tough road…but she should be getting out the end of this week!

Classes started back for me on Jan. 13th.  So far, things are going smoothly! But I did choke a little when I found out my first test would cover 22 chapters!!

Now…the secret!

BABY 1-23-12_2

A big surprise…but none the less a blessing! Baby is due 9/8/12.  It’s going to be a LONG, HOT summer for sure!!


Weekly Photo Favs

There is so much going on right now that I am not even going to try to keep up with a 365…er 366 thanks to leap year…for 2012.  So I am going to do a weekly post of my favorite photos for each week.  With school, work, and a few other things going on, this is

definitely my best option :)

And this post is a little pic heavy! These photos were taken when Tracy, my mom, and I went out for one last camera adventure before Tracy left for the Frozen Tundra.


Tiny raccoon paws in the sand!


Shells along the shoreline.


Beautiful evening light...it doesn’t get any better than this!


Jellyfish…watch your step!


Sand Dollar Remains


Cape San Blas Sunset…the first sunset of the New Year!


Bubbles and Shells


Not sure what it is about this one…but I just like it :)


And finally…Miss Megan! I cannot believe that she will be graduating in just a few months!!


Happy New Year!

I can’t believe that 2011 has come and gone…but I am excited for all that 2012 has is store!!!

For NYE, I was at work, so not much excitement there! I’m still on break from class, but that too is quickly coming to an end.  I have orientation days at the college this week, but classes don’t officially begin until 1/13.  It has been so nice to be able to sit back and relax without the worries of homework or tests!!!

With the break I have also had the time to get my camera out and restore our long, lost friendship!!
