We did it!

Well I am proud to say Gummy and I finish the Avon Breast Cancer walk with flying colors. Managed to strain my leg just a bit, but hey, what do you expect when you walk 40 miles and you are carrying around an extra person.

Here are some fun pictures from the weekend. Top picture is around mile 15 on Day 1 and bottom picture is at the finish line after mile 40. 

It was a very cool event and so nice to have a good friend along to get through some of those difficult moments. Thank you all for your support.

Next big adventure, my 20th High School Reunion. 2 weeks. Let's see how much bigger I can get.

More to come!

8 months and counting

I am shocked we are days away from 32 weeks. I can't believe we will be meeting little gummy in just under 2 months. AMAZING. Lots to catch everyone up on, so let us begin.

Got another ultra sound at week 30. Here is the least creepy picture of the bunch. All looked good during the ultra sound, so all is good with the little one. Gummy is over 3 lbs, so they are thinking 7 - 8 lb baby. YIKES is about all I can say to that.

We spent the 4th of July at some friends house. As you can see, I for sure look prego. I will spare you all with the word one of my coworkers called me this week. Needless to say, I am going on a diet for the remainder of the pregnancy.

Also, this past week, Brad and I attended our labor classes. After hearing, watching and talking about labor for 6 hours, I am beyond overwhelmed and nervous. I asked Brad if we could back out now, the answer is NO. :( So needless to say, I will be having nightmares for the next 8 weeks. YIKES!

And to round out the week, this weekend is the big Avon Breast Cancer walk. I will be walking 39 miles this weekend in honor of 5 amazing ladies that have survived breast cancer. I will be walking with a dear friend who unfortunately lost her mother to this horrible disease some years back. I am excited and nervous for challenge that lies ahead. I honestly think running a marathon is going to be easier than walking 39 miles. I will report back with pictures in the coming week.

Well, I think that covers it. OH, we are official owners of an SUV! WOOHOO. The new family car should arrive in the coming weeks. I guess we are officially becoming a family. :) Mochi is very excited.

Have a great weekend everyone.
