Coffee + Conversation

Happy Monday, friends. Thank you all for your kind words on Friday’s post - it was a fun one to write and we had a great anniversary.

On Friday, Madeline graduated from toddler soccer. I'm not sure she learned a whole lot (haha!) but we did have fun trying a new activity. I cooked dinner on Friday to kick off the weekend. I made bruschetta chicken and freshly baked bread and we had a nice relaxing evening of watching Suits. We are currently on Season 5.

Six Lessons Learned in Six Years of Marriage

Tomorrow Corey and I will celebrate our sixth wedding anniversary. It is hard to believe that we have been married that long while at the same time it seems a life time ago that I was a twenty-three year old resigning my very first job to pack up my life and move up north with my brand new fiancé to plan our wedding.

Its been quite the ride so far and we've experienced a lot together from lots of fun vacations, new jobs, enduring a few awful jobs, several moves, building a home, selling it to buy another one, the loss of a parent, expecting our first baby and raising her into a real little person, me leaving my full time job, and now expecting another little one. We've definitely seen our fair share of changes...and challenges, too.

18-22 Week Bumpdate

This pregnancy is flying by! I think I’ve said that every update so far but I really couldn’t believe it was time to post one again and even contemplated skipping the update since it feels like I just did one.

How far along: 22 weeks (22 weeks 5 days to be exact)

Baby is the size of: a spaghetti squash 

Weight gain: 12-14 pounds. It depends on the day but so far I am right at “average." This is double what I’d gained at this point with Madeline but I had a lot of trouble gaining in the beginning with her, which resulted in growth scans and extra checkups, and then it all packed on (and then some) at the end. I definitely think I look much bigger this go around!
