I know, I know…”what happened to week 26?” I’m sure you have all been dying with anticipation (enter sarcasm) Well, that I can’t tell you-except that week 26 was just a tad crazy busy and it just didn’t happen…but don’t worry be happy (doo-doo-doo-doooo) here is week 27! 
Baby GIRL–She is appx. 14 1/2 inches long, 2 pounds and about the size of a cauliflower!
Movement–Still moving like crazy, especially when I am sitting down or after I’ve eaten. Every once in a while my stomach looks super lop sided depending on where she is laying OR she is moving so much my stomach is looking more like the ocean when there are lots of waves happening. 
Weight gain–I go to the doctor on Thursday-so we will find out then…you may or may not find out…stay tuned
Maternity clothes-Same as previous post…”I am wearing  A LOT of dresses…because they still fit and don’t have to be “maternity”, some pants and shirts have been exchanged but I can still wear my normal clothes, they just fit a TID bit differently now”
Gender–GIRL!! Libby Shea is her name. It means Promise of God, Preserved Isaiah 59:21
Food cravings–right now I like food in general…and a lot of it.
Sleep–Has been great-with the exception of my crazy insane dreams (which is nothing new for me if you’ve known me long)
Once again, sorry to disappoint but no picture!! I get to go home to Borger this next weekend-can.not.wait! over 4 months is just entirely too long to go without going back home…- for our FIRST baby shower! yahooo! I’m excited to:
  • see many sweet friends that I haven’t seen in quite some time. 
  • Make cinnamon rolls with my dad
  • have some much needed mom lovin’ and dad hugs
  • go to the coffee ranch (fingers crossed…probably won’t realistically have time to do that but it would be amazing)
  • have the famous Memaw sunday lunch and just spend time with her in general 

All that said, I’m sure I will have pictures from this next weekend that I will post once we get back 🙂 

Random side note: If you are reading this-go outside RIGHT NOW it’s too pretty to be staring at my boring blog (although I DO appreciate your interest) 

Until next time…enjoy the sunshine!



The past 3 days have been full of exciting celebrations: marriage, new life and birthdays!

First up was my sweet cousin Ashley’s wedding shower in Dallas. She is one of my most favorite people and my longest bff that I’ve ever had! We grew up not only in the same town but just a few streets away from each other and have way too many memories and funny stories to share on here, but to say that I am happy for her and JP would be an understatement. It has been so fun to watch the Lord bring them together and to see just how HAPPY she is and it is much deserved. Image


Ashley’s shower was Saturday so on Sunday before I headed back to Houston I was able to go the second celebration of the weekend (which actually took place last wednesday) was the birth of Sawyer David Swink son of Eric and Alicia. I still can’t believe Alicia is a mom (or that I will be soon actually ha!). Alicia and I also grew up together, sang together, were roommates in college and so on and so on. Love her a tremendous amount. So without further ado meet Sawyer!


Last but certainly not least we got to celebrate our nephew Jonah’s SECOND birthday tonight! Wow, is he really already two? Jason and Janel had the whole fam over for a wonderful meal, cake and of course opening presents! Below are just a few from the evening: the b-day cake, hangin’ out with Uncle Justin while eating, and diggin’ into the basketball goal we got him!




The next couple of months will be full of many more celebrations….including the last day of school and a trip to the Cayman Islands in T-Minus 5 weeks and 6 days! Yahooo!

Until next time….

Puppy Love

Pepper, our blue lacy (which by the way is the Texas State dog), turned one at the end of December! While I know this late-this post is dedicated to the “best puppy ever!” These are supposed to be in chronological order but that didn’t happen 🙂 oh well!
