I Can't Get Enough

Dear Lima Bean,

Your heart was beating perfectly again! 158 beats per minute. Have I mentioned that we love you? We get to see you in 4 weeks! Actually see you! Okay so not in person but at least we get to see you on the computer screen. We don't want to know if you are a girl or a boy. We figure you are perfect no matter what you are. In our eyes you can do no wrong.

Daddy laughs hysterically when you kick my belly button. I find it extremely uncomfortable but I do love that you are giving your daddy such a good laugh. He loves you too. He is so excited to see you. He is going to be a great daddy. He is going to teach you lots of cool stuff. Did you know he can flip a pen in his fingers? A skill I have yet to conquer. Did you know that I hope you get your daddy's handsome eyes. They are honest and they tell stories. Words are pointless when he is around. His eyes give him away.

Your dad likes to tease me on how big you are getting. You are the size of a sweet potato. FYI sweet potato's are delish! So, I was wearing your dads t-shirt last night and he was asking me to please not stretch it out! I totally blame you for the expanding gut, just saying. I really do love every inch of my belly because you are in it.

I think I am going to miss you being inside my belly. I love you. Squid is excited to meet  you too. He lays on my belly every chance he gets. I really do think he knows you are in there.

All three of us love you! We can't wait to meet you! Stay safe in there please.

Little Maven

I will be purchasing our little Lima Bean's clothing on this site. I love her style. The clearance section is fantastic too! You should check it out if you have your own lima beans at home!


Yes, the line is from Tori Spelling. And yes, you do know I think she is fabulous!

My Happy Moment

Everyone should have at least one happy moment a day. A moment when they are most themselves with their fave activity, music in the ipod, or just your happy thoughts. My happy moment today was out in my yard. I put Squid in his play pen and planted 24 beautiful pansies around the budding bulbs in my flower beds. Normally I would drown out the sounds of life with The Ataris, Taking Back Sunday, or Lilly Allen (yes my top 3 at the moment-don't judge), but today I listened to Squid meow at blowing leaves and the wind. It was amazing. It was my moment. I was in the dirt making my life a little more beautiful with 1.5 have my fave people in attendance and one on my mind. I had Squid and my baby safely tucked inside of me enjoying the weather and awesomeness of the day. On my mind I was thinking about my amazing husband. The one who has sacrificed so much for the things we have. The only one that could give me my beautiful family. He said yes (reluctantly) to adding Squid to our twosome and he has given both of us #4. Our lima bean! 

So this was my happy moment. I was lost in beautification, nature, Squid, baby, and Steven. 

When was the last time you had a happy moment?

SC Johnson: Scrubbing Bubbles, Plegde, and Glade

I am participating in the Buzz Agent campaign for SC Johnson's Scrubbing Bubbles. I received a package yesterday with a bunch of cool cleaning supplies. I have already used some of it. So far I am pleasantly pleased.

I have used the Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel. It 'goops' to the side of your toilet and is supposed to last 6 weeks. I'm excited to see how it does. So far it smells great. The glad candle smells awesome too!!!

Happy Birthday Squid

My little man is now a year old! I can't believe it. I remember going to pick him up. I had the laundry basket lined with blankets and a towel for the trip. I didn't know how else to transport the little guy.

So I get there to pick out a kitten and all the kittens are running around chasing each other. They were all SO cute! Squid came up to me! He tried to walk on my feet. I think he picked me!

I brought him home in the laundry basket! He talked the whole time and stuck his little paw out the slants. He was adorable!

Steven and I thought he was a girl! So we named him Cricket. He was Cricket for a whole week before we realized he had man part! Oops! Sorry Squid. We still love you and hope we didn't mess you up too bad!

So now he is the biggest cat out of the bunch he came from! He jumps on the fridge, sleeps on top of the cabinets in the laundry room, plays with straws and teases the dogs next door from the window.

So happy birthday Squid. I hope this next year is as good to you as the first one was. We think you are pretty fantastic!

Food Storage

We are starting to work on food storage. We have always had 72 hours worth of supplies but with a lima bean on the way we figure it's time to be responsible and ready for whatever we have to face as a family.

How many of you have food storage set up and ready? What do you have? How long will your storage last you? What do you do with baby food?

Wednesday With Squid: Snuggling the Baby

This crazy gato loves to snuggle against the baby. I wonder if he can hear it in there? Cats have super sonic hearing so maybe he can...? Maybe he senses it? Maybe he loves it because he can tell Steven and I love it. . . ?

Spring Love


These are my first bulbs of the season! This is a white Crocus. The tulips are 2 inches tall and growing every day! Pretty soon they will be blooming and I'll have some pretty orange Tulips in my yard.

Lima Beans Bed

Ignore the pink. The pink does not mean we think the baby is a girl. The baby is still a surprise. Don't get your hopes up. ;)

Check the link! We LOVE it!

Pretty Pregnancy

I want some cute pregnancy picts. I have a killer teal wall and an awesome avocado green kitchen we could use as backgrounds. What did you ladies have done? Any suggestions for some at home picts? If the snow would quit our yard would be great too. I think the rock retaining wall would be nice as a background.

My neighbor said she would do some but she is thinking later when I'm huge. I still have family photos we are having done but the awesome Audrey this spring so I can get some then too. I'm just a little anxious to get some done now so I can have them around the casa.

How do you pose while preggers too? Nothing looks flattering. The wrong angle makes me look fat not preg.

Dear Amazon.com,

I am so bummed. 6+ years with you and you totally break my heart. Season 6 of One Tree Hill came like this...? Call me crazy but this is no way for a product to show up on your steps???

How many of you use Netflix? Do you enjoy it? Waste of money or worth it?
