my little ocean.

Today I saw two little hands. Two little feet. I feel soooo emotional lately. Like shut off the water works already. Cried watching the following this weekend: Wild Hearts Can't be Broken, Hannah Montana the movie (i know right?), and Army Wives. I got a little misty eyed when Dad showed up to the County Fair fun run, and then when we all got a ribbon I was thinking that was pretty awesomeated. Additionally, I teared up listening to our favorite band Saturday night at the fair, Rough Stock. Sunday I got an email that made my cry, it was so sweet and I really needed it. So, I am thinking chips and salsa are in order to replenish my loss of salt water. Chili's anyone??

36 and Pregnant.

Several years ago Kory was asked to write up what his obituary would look like. A few of the things I remember from that slip of paper are that he was at home in the outdoors, and that he loved his wife and his three children.

It has stayed with me ever since.

Now I am 36 and pregnant. With number three. I feel a mix bag of emotions but fear is not one of them. I am eliminating scared from my emotional vocabulary. This time I will enjoy the changing of my body more than ever, and I will remember that this movement inside of me is a creation that is as close to a miracle as I have experienced.

I am so happy to be part of this fantastic project of women helping young girls find careers! So much fun! I was the 'spotlight' for the kick off of the website. Check it out!

A random pic

This is pretty much my kids favorite pose for pics. I have been a blog slacker lately. I am not sure why, but probably because I have no interesting random thoughts to share.
