This morning, I went to our church for a couple of hours to help out in the office. I waddled across the parking lot to the door, felt crazy for taking the steps, and felt much better after joking around with the other ladies about this stage of pregnancy. :) Laughter is good.

All of these "very pregnant feelings" gave me motivation to get some baby-prep done today... washing and folding newborn clothes, cleaning up a little in Bekah's room, organizing and donating, etc. We have a lot to do before our little girl arrives but today was a step in the right direction. A waddle in the right direction. :)
I have some other fun news! We are in the process of buying a house! We will likely close in early or mid August. The whole house buying process has been fun, suspenseful, stressful, and pretty darn cool. Our realtor is a good friend and she's been absolutely amazing... I would recommend her to anyone! I think we visited six or seven properties before finding the right one. Friends recently told us that with each home they've bought, they always knew it was "the one" right away. They didn't have to talk themselves into it. That's what we wanted and we were very happy when we both felt that way as we toured this house.

I can't wait to share pictures once we move in and to document some of the changes we make. For now, I'll just have to write about it. :)
Some of the things I'm most excited about are...
1. the first floor laundry room (does anyone else love hearing the sound of laundry during the day?)
2. a nice backyard with a swingset for our girls
3. cozy bedrooms that are a good blank slate
4. lots of character.... like bead board walls and wainscoting
5. a great location where were can walk to fun things
We're excited to learn a ton and have fun as first time home owners. God is such a faithful provider. There is a lot about this house that I could not have known to ask for... but He made it work out within our budget.
So there we go! Two big reasons why August will be crazy and wonderful... the arrival of our daughter and moving into our first home. What do you have going on this summer? We're doing a lot of lounging around the living room, sleeping in (while we can haha), and playing with Bekah. She is so much fun.
