Mother's Day Weekend Recap

Mother's Day weekend was of my best weekends!
Justin really spoiled me!
He was so excited about the gift he got me, that he INSISTED I open it on Friday.
*He does this with about EVERY gift he gets me.*
My mother's day present was a NEW CAMERA!
Whoo hoo!
No more going to Sears for expensive, BAD portraits.
I now am a proud owner of a Canon Rebel T3i! And I got an extra lens!
I love, LOVE it!
I'm so glad and relived to have a decent, fast camera to take some great pictures of my baby! (And future one!)

As for that weekend....I woke up Saturday to having my favorite breakfast in bed.
One blueberry pancake and a California omlettee from Kerbey Lane.
SO, so good.
(I don't eat it all...but I like to have something sweet and something semi healthy)
Justin gave me a few hours in the morning to be a bit lazy and have some "me time."
We then spent the day playing and going to the pool so Kie could splash in the water.
Then Sunday Justin had breakfast for me again in bed. And Starbucks!
I also got the sweetest card from BOTH Justin & Kie.
Kie signed his name--and then he decided to sign his name on the living room, so sweet!

I also got a beautiful orchid!
I've always wanted one!
I love how my husband listens when I least expect him to be....
(In Home Depot the previous weekend I mentioned how I always wanted an orchid.)

After YET again another great breakfast and presents--we got ready and went to church.
The sermon WAS AMAZING.
And reminded me how important of a role it is to be a mother.
And how hard of a job we have it in this society that is geared to all things worldly.

It just inspired me more to be a better Christian mother and wife--so that I can raise up my children on the right path.

Seriously mommas, we have a tough road ahead.  Especially in a world that praises BAD behavior and promotes sex.

If this next child is a daughter....
She'll be LUCKY if she gets a phone OR a computer by the age of 18.
I'm not having a double standard for my kids, even Kie won't have his own personal computer or phone till WAY later in life--but with a girl, I'm just extra worried.
I feel as though girls have more pressure to look and act a certain way.

ANYWAY---(let me get off my soap box before I get TOO carried away!)
We had lunch at one of my favorite Mexican restaurants after church and we spent the rest of the day in the back yard---relaxing and enjoying the beautiful weather.
I also played around with my new camera.

**This is why I LOVE Austin, Texas**
We have amazing weather---and the perfect place to be is on the patio or a deck, in some shade with a nice big drink of your choice.
Mine, just happens to be ice cold lemon water :)
--I may put this is the SECOND best place to be in Austin...
the first being on our boat on the lake!

I don't want time to fly, but I can't imagine the great fun we'll have when our kids are a bit grown and can enjoy wakeboarding and tubing!

I love how Justin is such a water guy.
And already how Kie loves it too.
He already goes *UNDER* water at 18 months.
--He does this voluntarily!
Crazy brave baby.

So the weekend was great--and it was so relaxing and nice.
Just me and my two boys.

THIS weekend, was FAR-FAR different than last weekend.
And I'll have a post with TONS of pictures to share soon.
Stay tuned!

Until next time,

I need....

to be a better blogger!

Seriously, I have SO many things I think about weekly that I think,
"I need to write this down or I need to blog about this so I won't forget...."

Especially with pregnancy brain...I forget.
And I forget often.

ANYWAY---I promised the HGTV post to come soon.
In fact, it's written out but I don't want to publish yet because I don't know if I can legally say somethings.
I have about another week until I KNOW if I can go ahead and share with everyone our story.
Until then, I'll have to leave y'all in a small state of curiosity!

I'm so sorry! I don't been to be mean but I really don't know if I can share just yet and I need to hear back from a producer before I do.
Hope y'all understand!

On to other things....

Kie is being hilarious and funny as usual.
He does have some cute little things he says and does.
For instance, now when I ask how he's doing..
He replies,

It's so cute.
And melts my heart.
That boy, though a handful, is my world.
Especially now with another on the way, I just cherish every second we have alone together.

I know it may sound like I'm not excited for Baby K....
I am, but I am also sad my current "baby" wont be the baby for long.

I mean, my sweet little man just went in for his 18 month check-up today (I'm always a few days late!)
and I can't believe we aren't going back to the doctor until he's 2! (However I'm glad because holding my baby down for shots is awful!)

So me and Kie BOTH won't miss those visits.
Though it was crazy how the doctor said, well next time I see you and Kie, you'll have another one!
And it hit me, man....

AS for this week--it has been raining a lot!
We haven't been able to play outside (where I sometimes work on the patio table while Kie digs in the dirt for worms).
SO we've been looking for things to burn off energy.
We started going to the YMCA so Kie can go to a class and I can get my HUGE prego belly to work.

Ladies, if you see me...I am not 6 months pregnant. 
Nor am I,  7 months pregnant.
I'm just 3 1/2.
Second baby...just POPPED last week.
I went from a semi flat BIG OLE BELLY.

It's like my body prefers pregnancy state...

THANKS, thanks belly pouch.
I did have a cute little girl tell me "congratulations" while she held the door for me at the doctors office.
Super cute little girl too.
I wanted to hug her.

It was AFTER the very fat LARGE man (who am I calling big these days?) PULLED into the parking spot I had my blinker on, waiting for the parking spot.
:Don't you love it when that happens?:
when someone just whips right in and steals your spot!?!

Seriously man!
Not only was I running a bit late for the appointment---
but I had to park MILES away...
*HAIR wet*
Carrying my 27lb toddler on my hip...
and a noticeable baby pouch....

AND when I finally passed the parking spot that WAS mine...
The man was sitting there with his equally LARGE wife/gf---just SMOKING.
Guess they need a front row spot to smoke in, IN FRONT OF THE DOCTORS office?!

Ah, glad I could help em out.

Anyway, when I got to the door that's when the sweet little girl said congratulations.
And I wanted to just gobble her up and say thanks.
Because sometimes I seem to lose hope in humanity and right before I do...something small happens--like the sweet little girl, that makes me feel alright about the world.

Sorry to derail.
Oh yes, back to this past week.
THIS past week Kie has been attending a "craft class" and a gym class at the Y.
It has been SO fun.
Mainly because Kie is socializing and I get to have a bit of *ME* time.
I've been using the time to get some cardio in....
and, some days I play with Kie in his class. OR I sit just outside the classroom watching through the glass windows with the other moms.

Kie was initially apprehensive but after the second day he practically leaped out of my arms to play with all the new toys and kids.
It was a little hard to see how good he was at being independent.
But really since day 1, Kie has been a social butterfly.
He's a little like his momma.
But, more laid back than I'll ever be.

All in ALL it's been an amazing week....
and of course TODAY is Mother's Day--and I have a post on JUST that coming in a few.

**I start a lot of my blogs only to finish them days this is why this one IS wrapping up!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Lots of love,
