Its OK

Hey Everyone!

Happy Thursday!
I hope everyone is doing fantastic on this chilly day!
I actually had to squeeze into some of my jeans because it was pretty nippy outside.
Thanks to my growing Appleseed, I'm finding it pretty difficult to get into most of my jeans,
but at least he or she is growing properly.

First off today, I just want to mention how proud I am of my husband.
He was asked to preach last night at our church, and done such a wonderful job.
I can't even begin to tell him how proud I am of him, how much he encourages me,
and how much I love him, especially for the stand he makes as a Christian man.

He mentioned while he was preaching last night that he was the cheerleader at home,
which everyone got a kick out of,
but truly he is, especially lately since I've been all out of whack.
(baby-making totally wipes you out in everything).
He is my cheerleader,
and I couldn't have asked for a better one.
I love you muchos, Goose!!

Today I'll be linking up for Its OK!
Its Ok Thursdays
It's OK
...That I have decided I was getting Chic-Fil-A today, no matter what
... To be so happy that I have my "little" car back (I love my little car)
...To take off a day of work to help my husband with our garden
...That I'm praying our garden is super blessed and fruitful
... To wish it was lunch time already so I can go ahead and get me some chic-fil-a
...To love the Harry Potter books (J.K Rowling is a genius)
...To miss going on dates with my hubby
...To be excited that I only have four more weeks of class left (Yay!!)
...To need a bister/lister day for me and my sissy (I think we could both use it)
...That I feel like I can't focus on any one thing most days
...To wonder what is so hard to get about putting your time in so you can get paid (it isn't complicated people!!!)
...That I'm desperately needing a new book to read (I'm currently re-reading The Half Blood Prince)
...That I desperately want to go back to Universal Studios (I need peppermint toads from Honeydukes)
...To be a complete nerd and love it!

Hello All!

First I want to apologize for my lack of posts lately.
I literally have no life at the moment.
I am literally too tired to do anything at night except cook and then fall asleep,
I'm trying to finish up my last semester before the baby comes,
and literally have nothing to talk about..
Hence all of the link-ups I've been doing.

Please just bear with me.
I'm two weeks away from the end of this bloody first trimester,
and I keep hearing after that it gets better.
Maybe I'll actually do something fun and exciting and then can share it with you guys...
but until then... I'm linking up LOL

Here's an update on Baby Dixon and myself...
I'm now ten weeks, which means that Appleseed is the size of a lime.
Sure is growing fast!!!

Though, the nausea has eased up, I'm still having small bouts with it,
but thankfully it is nothing like it was.

But I'm still EXHAUSTED!!!
For example:
I took almost a two hour nap Sunday afternoon,
and STILL fell asleep watching Harry Potter on the couch around 9-ish.
Anyone who knows me, knows I do NOT fall asleep watching Harry Potter!!!

Other than that, I'm still having that whole phase where not a whole lot sounds good.
At least I'm to where even if it doesn't sound great, I can eat it.... for the most part.

Moving right along...
I've been on a Harry Potter kick lately.
I'm frequently reading The Half Blood Prince,
and I've been pinning HP pins like crazy because most of them are pretty dang funny,
and some I just love.
So today, I'm just going to stick with that.... Harry Potter!!!! :)

I'm a nerd and I know it!

Its OK

Hey Everyone!

I can't even begin to express how glad I am that today is Thursday!
Now if Thursday could just end, it would be even better!
Because tomorrow is Friday and my half day at work...
Is it sad that I already can't wait to take a nap tomorrow?!?!

I know, that is sad, but I've been sooo tired this week!
Just like the last three or so weeks...
I hear its part of being preggo or something.
Who knew making a baby could be so exhausting ha-ha

Today I'll be linking up for Its OK!
Its Ok Thursdays
It's OK
...To want a cheeseburger right now and fries
... To be sad that you grew up and apart from some people and now have no idea who they are
...To have those blast from the past moments and just smile
... That I went to bed at ten o'clock last night and still couldn't get up with my alarm this morning
... That I can't wait to find out what my baby is going to be (boy or girl... hmm??)
...That I can't help but smile when my husband puts his face to my tummy and talks to our baby
... To argue and get mad, as long as you kiss and make up.
...To be pretty upset that it has been over two weeks and I still don't have my car back
...To wish that my sister lived five minutes away from me again
...That me and my husband have decided to take a trip, just the two of us, for some one on one hubby/wifey time
...That I want fruit as well as said cheeseburger mentioned above (at least I'm keeping it balanced lol)
...That I just want today to be over with, to have my car back, and to head off to my sisters for a nice weekend :)

Oh How Pinteresting!

Hello All!

I hope you guys are having a great day!
I don't know about you guys,
but Wednesday gives me a little hope on making it through the next two days!
I can't wait for Saturday, because the parents and me and my hubby are all piling over at my sister's for the weekend!

Here's an update on Baby Dixon and myself...
I'm now ten weeks, which means that Appleseed is the size of a prune.

Thankfully my nausea has eased off some the past week.
Right now I'm only feeling sick in the mornings before I eat.
I was told for the first time yesterday that I was "actually showing"...
I wasn't quite sure how to respond to that... (Thanks?!?) LOL.

I'm still exhausted, and having weirdo dreams at night.
I had a dream that my husband was black one night, and the other night I woke up thinking my sister was in the bed with me instead of my husband.

I'm also pretty emotional, which isn't very much fun.

Today I decided I needed a few laughs, so I decided on a humor theme for OHP.
Hope you guys enjoy!

Its OK

Hey Everyone!

Today is Thursday...
Can I get a Hallelujah, Thank you Jesus!!!!

March, so far, has felt like last October;
Long, painful, and full of Murphy's law...
Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

Anyways, I have missed the last few Thursday link-ups,
which happens to be one of my favorites!
So today I'm linking up for It's OK
Its Ok Thursdays
It's OK
...That I haven't wanted to be at work at all this week
...That I all I want to do is nap
...That I am now craving fried pickles and watermelon (Not together, though LOL)
...That thinking about my mom going to Tennessee for a week makes me sad (I'll miss her!).
...That I dread putting clothes on the wash when I get home (where is the snooze button for that?)
...That Spring Break didn't feel like a break
...That I I dread Monday and Friday isn't even over with yet
...That I miss my energy (the little more that I used to have before pregnancy lol)
...That I want to get me and my sister Black Dagger Brotherhood, Supernatural, Son's of Anarchy, and Harry Potter T-shirts, hoodies, pajama's..anything! lol

MIA Blogger

Hello everyone!

So last week I completely disappeared from the blogger world.
I went to work for like a day and a half,
and then on Wednesday, while my husband and I were headed to our first baby appointment,
my car broke down...

Awesome, right?

I woke up Wednesday morning with a sore throat that escalated into a full blown sinus infection...
I was literally on the couch for the next three days.
Hence the reason I was MIA.

I did nothing for the rest of the week, and there isn't any exaggeration on that.
Wednesday, after finally getting home, I slept, and didn't even go to church Wednesday night.
Thursday I was either on the couch or in my bed.
Friday I was on my Mom's couch LOL...

Anyways, enough about that.
You get the point... I was very sick.
Now back to my baby appointment, the only good thing that went right last week.

After arriving thirty minutes late (thank you Ford Focus), we were taken back so I could pee in a cup, step on a scale, asked a million questions and got half my blood taken.

Sounds like a blast, right?

I'm sounding really snarky, I know, but I won't lie and say it was fun.
The best part for both my husband and I, was the ultrasound.

There is our little Appleseed!
We were told I measured at exactly eight weeks, a day short of what my last period said, but we were told that was normal.
Baby Dixon is a healthy little blob (what it first looked like to me lol).
Then we heard his heartbeat, and that is when I nearly lost it.
I totally teared up listening to my baby's heart beat at 150 beats per minute
It definitely seems a little more real now, having a picture of my little gummy bear,
which is what my best friend Michelle said it looked like Ha-ha!
She was right, it kind of does.
Either way, I love my little blob-looking, gummy bear that we call Appleseed!
We have our next appointment April 3rd!
Can't wait!!!!

5 for Five

Hey Y'all!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!
Mine didn't particularly last long enough,
even though I did get an extra day.

Last week was probably the roughest in my pregnancy so far.
I was nauseous off and on every day,
and wanted to quit life lol

So Friday I took off work and had a me day.
My sister and I made a day of it in town,
where we hit up the new Ulta that just opened,
grabbed some Chic-Fil-A,
and bought my secret sister a present
(finally got that done, sheesh!)

Afterwards, I ended up making that forty-five minute drive just to spend the entire afternoon and evening with her!
It was something I desperately needed.

Over the weekend, my hubby totally catered to me.
I didn't get a break from feeling bad on a my weekend, unfortunately.
So my husband picked up my major slack, cleaning the kitchen, putting up clothes,
and cleaning that wretched bathroom.
Honestly, I probably would have gagged through the entire process,
so him doing that for me was a god-send!

Not only did he cater to me in the cleaning department,
he let me get my much-needed naps, and got me the Hawaiian pizza I was craving last night.

I've been having a hard time finding something to eat that sounds good,
so when something hits me that I want, I've been getting it.
Last week was mainly french fries (I know, that's horrible), but when you are constantly sick to your stomach and having a hard time finding something you can chew on without it making you gag, you don't stay picky for too long.

So french fries last week and pizza.
Yep, I'm a healthy gal momentarily.


Last weeks goals...

1. Go through my shoes
Did I mention that I had a bad week?
That means I did nothing...
2. Get File-folders for bills and put them away
Surprisingly I went nowhere (not even Wal-Mart)
at all last week so I couldn't get one of these
... That's a first time ever.
3. Clean bathroom.
I didn't do it, my hubby did, but it still got done!
4. Do something active AT LEAST 2x
I went walking several times at work! Yay me!
5.Crochet some more on my blanket
I'm such a slacker on this.... #smh
So I didn't do the best, but I'm hoping to have a better week this week!
1. Go through my shoes
I will do this!!
2. Get File-folders for bills and put them away
I will do this as well... Wal-Mart here we come
Polish Bedroom
This is way over due
4. Do something active AT LEAST 2x
Need to keep up some activity with my unhealthy diet at the moment
5.Crochet some more on my blanket
I'll get to this eventually! :p

What goals do you want to accomplish this week?!
