Why Hello!

Wow, it's been an entire month since I have blogged! I have been keeping up with all my favorite blogs, but I've really left my own on the curb for awhile. Here's whats been happening around our house:

About 3 weeks ago, we were hit with a massive hail storm. Usually when we get hit with hail, it's pea sized, and lasts for about 5 minutes. This time, it lasted nearly an hour straight, and we got hit with softball sized hail. It was pretty insane. At one point I insisted we all go into the basement in case a hail stone came through the ceiling (and they did at a few homes). Everyone in the area is getting an entire roof replacement- even new plywood; we had about 13 holes in our roof.

Since we're going to have a little insurance money left over from all the damage to our home from the storm, we're going to put in a 3rd bathroom (in the basement) in our house. Hopefully we'll have it done in the next few months! I know this will be an attractive extra to potential buyers when we sell our home in the next few years.

I am about a week from my 3rd trimester! I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going. To be honest, I haven't really had time to think about being pregnant up until this point, though I'm starting to get to the uncomfortable stage where breathing becomes a luxury.

I'm really excited for the holidays to get here. I can't wait for Christmas (probably because I'm due a few weeks after!) and I've already got a good start on my Christmas shopping.

As crazy as it seems, we're going to have a 2 year old on our hands VERY soon! I'm already in the planning stages for his birthday which is less than 2 months away.
This weekend I am FINALLY going to finish the bookshelf I started many months ago (yeah, my husband doesn't believe it either). It's been sitting in the garage for so long, and I probably only have a few hours worth of work on it. It's now or never!

Thanks for reading! =)

That hail is insane! We had a pretty nasty hail storm about 4 weeks ago but luckily no damage. It sure sounded terrible though!

nice to hear from you again! I can't believe that you guys got hail that big! We had some nasty storms here (I think I'm just to the nw of you) but nothing like that! Impressive! And oh how I wish I could get a new roof! lol

Holy moly at that hail! That is crazy! Glad everyone was okay! Pregnancy is flying by for me, too! It's CRAZY!

I can't believe you're already in your 3rd trimester! Not seeing belly pictures or something every week makes it seem like your pregnancy is FLYING by!

And holy cow, that is some big hail!

I can't believe you are in your 3rd trimester! I read all these blogs of women who are pregnant and it's like I blink and they go from 12 weeks to 35! Keep the updates coming!
