Spring Break!

First off I want to thank everyone for the birthday wishes on my last post! You are all so sweet! :] I had a wonderful birthday spent visiting my family with Race. It was just what I needed. Relaxing and perfect! Now it's almost a month later! Eek!

At 5pm today Spring Break will officially start! Woot! Woot! Unfortunately we aren't doing anything too exciting for Spring  Break this year. We will be spending the majority of the break moving! We are just moving from one apartment to another in Flagstaff but it is still not enjoyable. I have spent the past couple of weeks packing  up our house but it is still not quite finished. Luckily Race's parents are coming up to help us make the move and I won't be expected to do too much heavy lifting because of Little Goose. {Thank you Baby!} I can't wait to have a new, bigger apartment to decorate! I've been Pinteresting it up like crazy to get ideas! Our new apartment also has a washer and dryer and a dishwasher. All things we haven't had in our two apartments so far! We will be living the high life! Ooh! And we have a porch that I want to  hang our hammock up on to read in on sunny spring days! I LOVE hammocks! Anyway, we're excited even though moving is killing our spring break. But, we have some other exciting things coming up/going on so read on!
  • It's been about three weeks since I last threw up! 
  • I got my bangs cut! Cutting my bangs helps me from getting bored with my hair and chopping it all off. I am on a hair growing out streak right now! I haven't super chopped it since before my wedding! Just trims! I'm not sure if you all know how big of a deal that is for me but it is huge! I'm taking advantage of pregnancy hormones and trying to grow it even longer! {Anyway, thank you to my sister-in-law Jasmine for cutting my bangs--they are my favorite length right now! Also, see pictures below to see my bangs!}
  • February 27th was the first day I felt Little Goose move and it is the coolest thing ever! I love the little reassurance that Little Goose is inside and growing healthy and strong! 
  • March 15th we have our ultrasound to find out Little Goose's gender! I am SO excited and I can't wait to share the news with everyone!
  • For my 16 week baby bump pictures I used this cute little chalkboard to write a little bit about Baby and take some pictures. It was a lot of fun!

  • I'll be halfway on March 14th! {I'll be taking more pictures with the chalkboard!}
  • I'm having a blast figuring out how to dress my little bump! I'm sure that'll change when it's bigger and none of my clothes fit. But for now here are some pictures of my baby bump outfits:

  • AND finally, just two more months til Race and I are college graduates!! I can't wait!
What are you up to for Spring Break if you have it this next week?! If not, what are your plans for the weekend? I hope you are all doing wonderfully and hopefully this month I'll be a better blogger! If I get around to making our apartment look good and decorating Little Goose's room I will definitely be posting pictures! I'm excited to have a room to decorate and put baby stuff in! And once we know the gender I'll be even more excited! Anyway, have a WONDERFUL weekend and I'll be back!


  1. Your bump is so cute! We're not doing anything for Spring Break cuz Andrew and I have different weeks off hahahaha so I'm gonn make curtains for Peanut's room with my mom and just chillax! I can't wait to see what you do with your apartment! And I'm dying of jealousy over the washer/dryer. We still do laundry at our parents houses hahahaha

    And hey once you start needing bigger clothes, I suggest Old Navy. I LIVE by their maternity clothes right now and they're so comfy, and cheap too! Jsut so you have somewhere you can go (online has the best selection fyi)
