Sunday Grill-Out & Pregnancy Update!


I love Sundays.  And I love spring time!  And today was a perfect spring Sunday.  Sunshine, naps, running errands and driving with the windows down, spending time with my loving husband, and grilling out!  Today we went out and picked up a few things for the nursery, like some more picture frames and a few wicker baskets.. and my husband couldn't resist picking up (another) very cute Korean stuffed animal.  :)  And tonight we grilled out.. mmm, some of my favorite meals are ones made on the grill.

My husband grilled some pork ribs and we also had some fresh green beans, grilled pineapple (my FAVORITE), and potato salad. My mouth is watering just thinking about it all again.  And we just had to pick up some IBC Root Beer and Black Cherry..

And OF COURSE we had dessert.. because nothing is complete without it!

Strawberry & Chocolate Cream Cheese Napoleon.  The strawberries were on sale today, so we snagged a bunch of'em!  This was a perfect dessert.  Light, airy, and delicious.  It's made with puff pastry, cream cheese mixed with some cocoa and a few other ingredients, and strawberries.  Top it with a little powdered sugar, and YUM, a perfectly easy spring time dessert.

As for other updates.. I absolutely CANNOT believe that it's May already.  Next month we will have our precious baby in our arms.  Last week we had our maternity photos taken by a very talented photographer.  I have only seen about 10 or so sneak peeks.. but so far I am loving what I see.  I just couldn't be happier about them and can't wait to see the rest.  :)

At our 32 week check up, heartbeat is the same as it has been in the 150s, but my doctor said my belly was measuring a little small.  So she sent me down for an ultrasound to make sure baby girl is growing the way she is suppose to be.  And she is!  I think she's just going to be a small baby!  She was measuring exactly at 32 weeks (actually, a couple days ahead... praying for her to come a little early!), and it was SO good seeing her again.  She has gotten so big since our last ultrasound at 20 weeks.  Doctor said she's head down and ready to roll - this mama is ready too!  Especially because my belly seems to get bigger by the day, and I had to order more maternity clothes the other day because I seem to have grown out of my other maternity tops, haha.

The nursery is getting very close to being completely finished - just need to add a few finishing touches.  I will be revealing the big 'nursery tour' soon... just 6 short weeks until I have to go stay up at the Army Post in Seoul, so I gotta get my butt in gear and get a TON of things done!


  1. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I am not sure if Shaklee ships to APO's. I am almost positive that they do. But if for some reason they do not, I would be happy to work something out with you because Shaklee is awesome and I wouldn't want you to miss out on the awesomeness! ha! :) I am going to find out today. But if you would like me to send you a sample of the Basic H2, email me your address at and I will send you one! :) Erin

  2. Okay, so I looked into it and you can join Shaklee as a member and Shaklee will ship to your APO! :)

  3. Hooray! Thank you SO much! With a little one on the way.. I was looking for cleaners that were more health and home friendly:)


I'd love to hear from you!
