Five on Friday!

Oh hellllooooo and Happy April (how is it April already?!) and Happy Friday!

Apparently pregnancy and two littles to take care of and running my own business and life in general are all continuing to kick my butt because geez, this blog has been neglected lately!  Which makes me sad, because writing is my passion and my outlet, and I also love documenting our lives on here (I get my blog published into a book once a year so we'll have it forever and always)... so hopefully I'll be able to get back into the swing of things around these parts sooner than later!

And without further ado, here's a riveting Friday Five...

Speaking of that whole pregnancy thing, I still cannot wrap my brain around it!  Even though I'm getting pretty chubby pretty quickly, it is all just so, so crazy.  And of course I am still a nervous wreck.  We recently had a good checkup, and will go see an MFM (Maternal Fetal Medicine doc, aka at-risk specialist) later this month for a pretty detailed scan to check on all things bambino... so prayers are appreciated, as I am really anxious about that appointment!  I'm feeling much better these days - I'm still not 100%, but I have definitely turned a corner, even managing to run trot around the neighborhood every now and then!

And speaking of the whole running my own business thing, I know I've mentioned a time or two that I am an Executive Consultant for Rodan + Fields - which I try not to talk about too much on here.  But y'all, I recently earned a pretty amazing trip through this little side gig, and my hub and I will be headed to Banff Springs, Canada this summer.  I cannot wait!  We don't do these types of things, me and my hub.  We dumped our savings accounts and sold our cars for IVF, and are choosing for me to stay home, therefore pinching pennies is usually our game.  So the fact that we're traveling out of country (sans kids!) on an all-expense-paid trip is cRaZy.  We booked flights today, and are getting our passports ready.  I know I'll be a nervous wreck leaving the country and leaving the kiddos at home, but am hoping this once-in-a-lifetime trip will trump all of those nerves!

We had such an awesome Easter!  I intended to blog about it on Monday, but, life.  From CK's preschool Easter celebration, to egg-hunting with friends, to an incredible church service, to a delicious home-cooked meal (I made all by myself!)... it was just such a wonderful way to celebrate that He is Risen!!

I am absolutely in awe of the relationship forming between CK and E.  Every time I hear them playing together, and laughing, and running around, and just being brother and sister - my heart wants to explode.  This is something I never thought I'd experience - having kidS, CK having a sibling... and this probably deserves its own post... but I am just so overwhelmed with gratitude lately for these two.

Bammy is coming today!  Bammy is coming today!  We are just so super duper excited to have my mama here for the weekend, and are all counting down until she walks through the front door.  And with that, I'm off to finish cleaning and getting ready for our visitor.  Have a wonderful weekend!
