Blogging Fail

Hello everyone!
I had such good intentions on keeping up with this blog and I have failed in the past two weeks! The sad part is that I wrote out like 3 or 4 posts so all I would have to do is come and publish them and I still didn't do that!! Pathetic. The pregnancy tiredness is getting the best of me, that's for sure. When I get home from work it takes everything in me to cook dinner and do a little nightly cleaning and not just lay down on the couch and not get up until morning! :) I will be posting the missing belly pictures soon, along with all those other written post!!

Stay tuned,

Labor Day Weekend

We didn't really have any plans for the extra long weekend, and it is a good thing because the weather was pretty nasty the whole time. On Friday we both worked during the day and then went to dinner with my parents that night. They were suppose to go on a motorcycle trip with another couple but, that got cancelled due to the weather. They ended up making a change of plans and the 4 of them left early this morning and headed for a short weekend get a way in Nashville. So jealous that they are actually doing something! After dinner Pete brought me home and headed back out the door to Cape Centrals football game. A few of his friends coach/teach around the area so he tries to go to a few games every year. It was POURING down rain so I stayed at home and decided to hook up the old Nintendo and play a little Donkey Kong. Pete came home early and turned on a football game. I read a few blogs and fell asleep pretty quickly. :)
Saturday I woke up around 7:30, checked all my normal morning things on my phone and then got up. Pete got up shortly after me because he was meeting people to work on our rental house around 9am. I ate breakfast, showered, and got ready for the day. I had a few errands to run, so I jumped in the car and did those. On my way downtown to the market, I stopped in at the new bakery that just opened up. I ended up getting a cinnamon roll, it was delicious.

The place is still new and working things out, but it was so cute! The have different flavors of cupcakes each day, plus cookies, brownies, coffee's, etc. I really hope that it makes it because our town really needs something like this! Since my parents are out of town, I ran to Jackson to let their dogs out before I came home. Once I got home I ate lunch and watched a few episodes of The Hills since there is a marathon on all weekend long! Pete got home around 5, took a shower and got cleaned up from working all day. We headed back to Jackson to feed my parents dogs and visit with his mom for a bit. Her husband was out of town so she was home alone all weekend! We had dinner plans with my friend Erin at BWW, so we headed back to Cape to meet her. A few of Pete's friends ended up being back at the bar watching all the games, so we stayed a little later than planned! After dinner we just came home and both fell asleep on the couch pretty quick!
 Sunday was a lazy day! Neither one of us set an alarm (terrible, I know) so we missed church. The only good thing about that is I actually slept in for once! I feel rejuvenated, finally!! I made pancakes for breakfast (more like brunch) and then we laid around and caught up on a few recorded shows. I had to go to the store to get everything for a dip that I told a friend I would bring that night for a get together at their new house, so I got ready and did that. I also may have made a quick trip by Starbucks to get my first pumpkin spice latte of the season!! I just wanted to sit there and savor every single sip. It was delicious!!  Around 3:30 we loaded up and headed to the Harrell's. They recently moved to Sikeston and have been painting/ renovating their new house since they moved in, so we were excited to see all the updates!! They made a shrimp boil for dinner (YUM) and we all just hung out pretty late since no one had work or school the next day!
Monday was a pretty lazy day for us also! I got up pretty early (not by choice), ate my breakfast, and watched a few shows that I had recorded that I don't make Pete suffer through. Aka, Beverly Hills Nannies, and Keeping up with the Kardashians! Ha. When Pete got up we cleaned the garage a little bit and I trimmed my potato vines back, they were taking over the front porch! Other than that we just sat around the majority of the day. I moved a few decorations around in the house and started to figure out where I wanted to hang everything! Here is the most updated thing I have done. I really wanted a collage type wall but the first one I did I was just never satisfied with it. I also realized that I do not have any pictures of us or family in the whole house, so I am going to replace everything in the frames with family pictures. I think I will like it a lot more!!

First Attempt:

I know the pictures aren't that great, I was did it quick to text others for advice :)

Second Attempt:

The "ram" head will be going in baby girls room. I think it will get more of the attention that it deserves. :) Plus, I just like this one a lot more!
My mom asked us to come over for dinner since they had been gone all weekend, so we headed over to their house for the evening and ate some delicious homemade fried chicken! Thanks mama!

I think that wraps up our lazy weekend! Hope everyone got as much rest as we did!! :)
