My Biggest DIY Project Ever!

Hello blogging buddies! How is everyone? I hope you're doing great! It's been so long since I've updated but I just wanted to pop in and share a few things with you.

First things first. I'm currently working on my biggest DIY project to date.


I'm having a baby!




I know, right?! I can't even begin to tell you how incredibly excited that I am at the news that my hubby and I are having a baby. It was completely unexpected but such a welcome suprise. I am currently 8 and a half weeks along - with a due date of December 8th. Our baby is about the size of a kidney bean. There's so much to plan, so much to learn, so much to dream about. It's all just way too exciting!

I'm feeling tremendous. I feel like my skin is glowing (after about a week of some bad acne), my lashes seem more lush, and overall I just feel really good. Could maybe have a bit to do with all of the water and fruits and veggies I've been consuming too!

I'm still in the States. My hubby is coming this weekend to get me and we will attempt to head back to Canada and apply for a visa which will allow me to wait out the results of my Permenant Residency application. Sunday (my first Mother's Day!) will be the big day that we try to head to Canada so I would absolutely covet your prayers in this matter. Thank you so much friends!

I hope to get back to regular blogging soon - as soon as I get into my own home. I've enjoyed this little break but miss catching up with ya'll. In the meantime, I'm burying my nose in pregnancy books. Please feel free to pass on any advice about pregnancy, being a mom, labor, anything! And thanks for taking a minute to share in this joy with us. It all means so incredibly much!

Mandi-
Congratulations on your exciting news! Being a mom is awesome and you'll be wonderful. Thanks for your nice blog comments on my quilt. If you start with a simple project, you can definitely make a quilt, it's just straight lines. Before I started quilting a few years ago, I didn't even know how to thread a sewing machine! Take care and I hope everything works out and you're able to go home with no more problems!

Oh Mandi I am so happy for you guys, now if we can just get you back thru customs all will be right! I am sure if you show them the picture with that cute little foot impression it will melt their hearts! Well it sure did melt mine!

Congratulations and take it easy, and stay well! Do I sound like your mom? Hmmmmm advice or suggestions ~ I just remember I always wanted to eat Cheerios in the middle of the night for nine long months...and my hubby bless his heart would get up and sit with me as I enjoyed Cheerios at 2:00 a.m.! Now he loves them and I don't, funny how things work out! Stay well sweetie, prayers for you!

How wonderful! Congratulations!
I hope everything goes well and you're able to get back home this weekend.

If you ever have a specific question about pregnancy and all that, I'll be glad to answer, but I'm going to refrain from tossing out random advice because once I get started, I don't know when to quit! :)
