Let's chat

It's been a while since I've done one of these posts, 
so lets chat & let me tell you some of random thoughts & recent happenings

  •  My parents were in town last month and my sister last week, Sienna was on cloud 9 having them here. Lately she's has been asking if we can go a plane go see them. It literally breaks my heart that she doesn't get to see the people she loves most as often as she wants. If only it was a car ride away instead of a 5 hour flight...

  •  I hope I didnt scare any new moms-to-be with my Debbie downer birth post the other day, its not that bad for everyone - I promise.
  • Hubs & I made the decision to rent out our current home & purchase a new one sometime early next year. I'm excited and overwhelmed with the thought of starting the search process again. There are so many things I always say I want to do in our current home but there is the "we won't be here living here long enough to enjoy it" we arent even setting up a nursery for baby E as originally planned.
  • Getting Sienna a library card was one of the best things we've done for her & us recently, she looks forward to going as if she was going to a candy store and loves being able to pick her books. It also solved a clutter issue in our home. We kept buying her new books as we'd get tired of the same ones quickly and they were just piling up all over the house. I donated most of them and now she gets 5 new ones every other week - win win.

  • I will never understand why in a state where citrus grows, limes and lemons are so darn expensive. Even in NY it wasn't this much! anyone care to enlighten me?

I hate to be a complainer, but this pregnancy is really kicking my butt. The AZ summer heat is dreadful....worst heartburn ever and this wild one DOES NOT stop moving making me nauseous all day everyday.


  1. Getting closer mama!! Love your little reader! :)

  2. I feel your pain!! I'm pregnant with our 3rd and this pregnancy had been really hard- in a way harder than my twin pregnancy bc I'm now chasing two 2 year olds around all day! It's so hot here and I've also hard horrible heartburn :( at least you are almost done!! I'm at 22 weeks so have a ways to go still! Hang in there :)

  3. Stay strong sweet mama, not long to go now x

  4. Don't know how you do it being so far away from family! I know that when I go into labor Everly will love getting to sleep over at her cousins (even though I will miss her). I thought that the second pregnancy would be easier (and in ways it is) but it's still just not fun being large. Everything is harder! Are you moving in the same area?

    We love being library card holders! I recommend taking advantage of the story time classes as well.

    Also, regarding the limes, both limes and lemons got really expensive because of something to do with drug cartels in Mexico but they have been going back down. Sprouts had them 4/$1 this past weekend.

  5. I feel your pain w. family being far sister is 12 hrs away in sucks.

    Breanna is a little reader too, I love it!!!

  6. Prices of limes can be blamed on the drug cartels in Mexico. Workers are scared to go work the fields because they get death threats and truck drivers are scared to go to Mexico to pick up the produce because they get robbed. Try going to an "ethnic" super market. My local supermarket has them for 99 cents a pound.

  7. Im sorry famly is so far away!
    I am sure that is hard on everyone..


Your sweet words always make my day! :) Thank you.
