The cat is out of the bag...

The chicken is in the casserole.

The big news bears is here.

The bun is in the oven.

I'm pregnant!!!!

Baby Kitch is due in October 2014!!!


I've been waiting and waiting and waiting for what feels like a really long time now to make this public!

I am so happy beyond belief that something I've wanted for so incredibly long is finally happening! 

Truthfully, I had arrived to the point where I was feeling like it might never happen and I had to be ok with that.

I've been wanting a family for so many years and finally we were to the point to try and see what happens! We tried for about half a year and then I was thinking it's just not going to happen. I know that's not that long and people try for a lot longer than that, I am very sensitive to that fact. I know the pain of finding out your friends/aquaintances are pregnant and being so upset it's not you. I am very grateful and am so thankful we got pregnant fairly fast. It's such a miracle and I am so, so thankful.

I'm so happy to finally share my good news with my blog family. I love you guys and you're some of the sweetest people I've never met ;) 

So I'm sure you have some questions...

Baby's due date is October 15th.

I found out and took a home pregnancy test on February 5th ;) 

I waited and told T on Valentine's day with a surprise "You're going to be a daddy" box I made for him ��

We don't know what the gender is yet since I opted out of doing genetic testing where they can also tell you the sex as well as if the baby has other genetic factors (we have no family history) but I fully intend to find out as soon as we can at the next ultrasound!

I can't wait to decorate the nursery and so far I've been slowly attempting and trying to think of where to put all my crafty guest room crap! 

Ugh!

So far I've had feelings that it's a girl because of my cravings and certain names I have in my head that I can't get out. But I did have a dream the other night it was a boy, so that has thrown my instinct off a little :)

I don't think we'll tell the name before the baby comes, but I hope to have a couple options ready for when he or she comes into the world and then decide who they look like.

I fully intend to work full-time up to my due date as my body allows, but we'll see since I'm on my feet ALL day with very little opportunities to sit down or take a break... and I already feel very tired a lot of the time. 

Here's my 8- week ultrasound...

Hehe, at some angles I thought the bun looked like a dinosaur in that first ultrasound.

12 week ultrasound...

 At this ultrasound it finally felt more real! I cried with such happiness I hadn't felt in a long time or maybe have never experienced before ;) it's such a miracle. I'm finally starting to feel pregnant.

So I had crazy nausea all day and night up until about 10.5 weeks preggo and extreme breast tenderness and soreness, it was aweful! At the point that it went away I was starting to feel scared that I didn't feel pregnant anymore! But I'm lucky that the nausea has mostly gone away and I'm just starting my second trimester, I will be 14 weeks tomorrow!

Again I'm so happy to finally let this pretty little kitty out of the bag. 

I feel so blessed to enter this new chapter into mama hood ;)

Happy Monday!

I've died and gone to blogger heaven...

 Actually not being that dramatic.

I swear.

Once you see what happened today...

Earlier I posted on Instagram, the endcap from my local Target's Young House Love wall hooks display...

 
You may notice they 'liked' my picture!

And not only that... They commented!!!


I mean I don't want to sound like a weirdo, but who doesn't love this fun, quirky, rapping DIY couple?! I'mean I'm just one of their millions of fans and they commented on my tiny little insta feed. 
Mind blown.

Alright. 
I'll stop my little freak out now ;)

Thanks John and Sherry for being such cool down-to-earth bloggers ;) I hope to meet you someday on your next book tour if you make it out this way to Seattle-area again!

5 Little Confessions Link-Up

I decided it's time to get back on my game if you know what I mean ;)

That basically means being a more active blogger again! I do love blogging and sharing with you, lately it's just not been as easy as it used to be to balance it all. So, I'm slowly working my way into active blogger mode again ;)

So, I decided to join this fun link-up with some great gals! You can go the link-up here.

Today I'm copying Jacquelyn and confessing...

5 jobs I wish I could try...

1. Backup dancer. Yes, I've always wanted to be one of those cool chicks that dances with Beyoncé. I used to be a pretty good dancer, truth be told.

2. Flight attendant. I always thought it would be cool to be a sky ninja as some of my delta-working friends call themselves. But honestly, jet setting between Paris, the Caribbean and who knows where sounds pretty damn good.

3. Wine maker/Tasting Room. I mean seriously, meeting fun people all day, tasting good wine. Having fun. Drinking wine. It's my jam.

4. Cake maker/decorator. I love love making cakes, I even have a business card for it. I do, I really do. I've always thought it would be so fun to do it professionally at some point. Who knows, this might be quite the feasible future job for me ;)

5. Interior designer. I love decorating! I've even tried my hand at being a decorator. I would love to put more into it, but my real money-making job always comes first. Hmmm, I wonder why? So maybe, someday!?

What are your 5 confessions? They could be anything, or you could totally steal this job confession like I did!
