More than a year later update!

Long time no write....

I haven’t written on my blog in a very long time.  I blame my job change for the most part.  After I left Ashland, my job as Disease Intervention Specialist at the Health Department has kept me very busy.  For some that do not know what I do, I investigate HIV and syphilis infections in 63 counties of Kentucky.  It can get pretty hectic at times but I also have my down time.  I have gone through some huge changes in the last year: complete job change, getting engaged, planning a wedding, getting married, and now pregnant.  I can't believe so much has happened in one year.  I feel like that never happens but I am thankful and blessed for everything I have.  Matt has been encouraging me to journal more so I thought I'd give it a go again.

Matt and I just found out we are having a baby boy! 

Couldn't miss it!

I wouldn't have known I've grown so much without these progression pics.

He weighs 10 ounces right now.

 I couldn't wait to find out the sex of the baby.  I am such a big planner; I knew it would be very hard to wait.  Now that we know, my wheels are turning on ideas for the nursery.  I started painting an old dresser that I want to turn into a dresser for the baby that will also be a changing table.  We also have inherited a Jenny Lind crib from his aunt and uncle that we will paint white. 
Not our actual crib but a Jenny Lind!

Bright red and baby blue combo.

As for colors, my two favorites right now are bright red and baby blue.  I think they look so good together, what do you think?  Target has a great baby selection and I love their Circo line of bedding and clothing.

I guess I better think of a new blog name.  I am still cooking and it's still fo' real around here but my focus is definitely on other ventures now.

  1. Blogging is definitely fun when you have the time, otherwise it feels like another thing to check off the list. I've been slacking off on mine too lately. But it's always nice to see your updates, however long between. Congrats on baby boy! I love seeing baby pics so you'll have to post lots here when the time comes!
