First Soccer Tournament

The little guy had his first soccer tournament this weekend. He and a couple of his buddies were playing. This was the first time his team played 5 v. 5, with a keeper, on a field that 1/4 regulation size (2x the size he regularly plays on). It was an adjustment, but, I think he had a great time.

New Furniture

Not long ago hubs and I decided we needed to buy furniture ourselves. Granted, we LOVE the sofa mom and dad gave us, however, it was time to make a change.

We liked the color of my parents sofa (same as my sister's) but didn't want ultra suede. Instead, we went with the microfiber option. Hubby wanted something that was a bit raised off of the floor. I was ok with it. My only requirement was that it was a somewhat classical shape with cushions that could be removed.

After what seemed like endless searching in town, we took a short drive to Omaha and found a brand that we could 'design' ourselves. Basically, we were able to pick and choose the features we wanted in a sofa, including the color.

Here is what we came up with:

Hubby decided we needed a chair to go with the new sofa. Do you know who's chair it's become? Bonkers! It is her new sleeping spot. Not to worry, she still sleeps with us at night, this is her daytime sleeping spot.

The more we sit in the furniture and smash down the cushions, the more I like how it looks and feels. I think we're not used to new squishy cushions.

Don't worry mom and dad, we still love to received furniture items from your house! Don't let our sofa purchase stop you from decluttering. Especially since you got that new camper!!!

Guess Who Turned 8?!?

My bump, my bump, my lovely baby bump.....

This is me at the end of a loooooooooong day, but, I promised a pic of my bump. Next week I'll be six months along.

What are those on my feet you ask? Well, as we can't wear flip flops at school (even though I have very nice, non-Old Navy type flip flops) I just HAD to get a pair that my marshmallow feet could fit into! Pay no attention to the barfy green carpet.

My awesome husband actually told me that I needed to get a pedicure. Who am I to argue?!? Besides, it's hard to do my own feet/toes when I have to hold my breath for so long. Just saying...

My most sincere apologies

I'm sorry that I haven't posted for a while. As many of you know, we're expecting a baby. While this is exciting news, I am forced to admit that I've been SUPER TIRED! With everyone's schedule, teaching, taking classes (some requiring flying), and major projects due within days of one another I was not about to admit defeat.

Something had to give. I'm happy to say my classes have slowed down, we're 8 days away from the end of the school year, & projects have been completed (A's were received thankyouverymuch). Now I can get back to business.

I have lots to report, pictures will come. Here are just a few of the things you can expect to see in the days to come:

  • baby bump
  • new furniture
  • sweater progress (yes, I'm almost done with a project...honestly)
  • baby room progress
Until then, I'm going to get a bit more rest. I'm pooped!
