Dang. I look pretty good huh? ;) I've never been one to obsess about weight (since high school anyway). But I have been one to get down on myself about being out of shape. Which is a condition that has progressively gotten worse over the past two years. And I got to thinking that part of the ... Read More about 8 Week Belly (Ana)
I'm far enough along that it's okay for the world to know that I'm with child (!!!! Yipee!!!) I was a little shy about this one, so I had been blogging elsewhere until the coast seemed clear. But the thought of writing for three blogs was a bit daunting and so I'm combining the pregnancy blog with ... Read More about Catching You Up
For the past week or so, I get slightly nauseous and lose my appetite around 4 or 5 p.m. It's not so bad that I can't actually eat, but it does prevent me from actually enjoying my food.

Since we go every year and I have tons of pictures that look exactly alike, I didn't take very many on this trip. But ... Read More about Shenandoah
This morning I woke up refreshed. I can't remember the last time this happened. And just yesterday I was telling Shane how I didn't have the motivation to do anything but sit on the couch and space out. Normally, I would be trying to come up with something to do, something to accomplish. He was ... Read More about Got My Mojo Back… for now…
