The Beginning of A New Chapter

I've been abandoning the blog for the last couple of months, well because I've been a little pre-occupied...  At first I started this blog thinking it would be all about fashion, then I started doing more DIY projects and cooking and it has evolved into a lifestyle blog... As I change and my life changes, my blog changes with me... And with that I'm announcing a new chapter in my life, I'M PREGNANT!!!!!!

We just announced on facebook last week and we can't be more excited!!! I just hit 13 weeks and I'm so excited to be in the 2nd Trimester.  I feel like I'm in the clear, at least for now....

Anyways, I wanted to post all my announcements on here since I only posted one on Facebook.  I kept changing it until I was finally happy.  My final announcement was the first one below.  I even got a few compliments that people thought it was professionally done, I was pretty proud of myself...

PS - Obviously the black box wasn't on my announcement, I was covering up our name...

Not only do I have announcements, but also a few bump pics.  I've been tracking my bump on a chalkboard that I got from TJ Maxx for only 30 bucks!  I've had fun writing on my chalkboard, but it's definitely been more work than I anticipated.  I know someday I will be happy  to have them, even if my handwriting isn't perfect... I'm discovering I'm more of a perfectionist than I thought!

The first trimester was an absolute breeze! I was lucky enough not to experience any morning sickness and the worst of my symptoms was just being tired! Sign me up for a nap... yes please! I've been enjoying every single second! The best part is that I've only gained 2 lbs, granted I've been wearing the bella band for about 3 weeks with my pants unbuttoned, but mostly that's just been bloat. Hopefully the second trimester will be as easy as the first!

We are supposed to be finding out the gender tomorrow, so I will keep you posted on that! I'm so excited I probably won't be able to sleep tonight!!

The little bump is hidden under my shirt...
