Good morning guys! Today is a little bit hectic but I did want to pop in and say hello, and please hang with me as my posting may be a lit erratic over the next week as we takeover our local Orange Leaf location. We would appreciate your thoughts and prayers this week, it’s going to be wild!
The other day, my timehop app told me we had been in our house for a YEAR (am I the only one who has a love/hate relationship with timehop?) That one really blew my mind. I remember it so vividly, and it really surprised me how fast this past year has gone as we prepared for baby Emma Kate’s arrival.
The day we moved in, we had NO AIR CONDITIONING in our house. August, in Mississippi, is very very hot. We had fans going and were trying to make it as cool as possible, but it was bad. I felt so bad for the movers, they worked so hard to get everything into our new home.
As we were moving in, we also went through a big huge mess with AT&T and Comcast that went on for two weeks. We had to wait on hold for many many hours during this time. Here we are both on the phone trying to get answers. Do not mess with a pregnant woman!
I also cant believe my baby girl was still baking this time last year. So crazy now that we “know” her to think I was just walking around with her all those months. Taking our weekly update photos was fun, and I loved comparing them to the week before. Also, I really miss my long hair.
After we moved in we did a lot of unpacking and I finally got to do some much needed nesting. I really enjoyed getting the nursery together and making it a fun, pretty space for Emma Kate.
A not so fun thing that happened last August: I ended up in the hospital with preterm labor. I had a UTI that was causing contractions. After some hospital monitoring, IV antibiotics, and two of the most painful shots I have ever had to stop labor, we were sent on home.
I get tired just thinking back to this month last year. I wanted to have the house all unpacked and in order, and just be able to focus on having the baby. We pretty much got everything done, and I am thankful for such a giving and hardworking family that helped us get settled in!
QOTD: What were you doing last August?
oh time hop. It’s a constant reminder of all the things that we thought were so important way back when… sometimes they were (like being pregnant), and sometimes they are silly. Mine from today was complaining about being stuck on public transit. ha.
WOW! it’s crazy to think all of that took place only one short year ago! My how time flies!

I don’t remember seeing the post you promised after moving… I know you said it was a quick decision and a fast move, but you’d get settled and fill us in. Maybe I missed it, but just curious- since you said you’d get back to it.
You are right in that I never did a full post on it, but I have mentioned things here and there. Def. wasn’t a quick decision, we were only in our house there for 8 months before we decided we wanted to move back to Madison, but it took us over two (painful) years to sell our house. We moved back up here finally on blind faith because Bobby didn’t have a job yet but luckily was able to find one within a month!
