of life

I have tried posting sooo many times on this poor blog. Every time I would click "new post" I would get a blank page with the Blogger symbol in the top left hand corner. That's it.

So, I gave up for a while. The thought of trying a different browser other than Chrome never even occurred to me. Until Brandon mentioned it and until I remembered it just now. :P

And lookie here, it works. :)

I have several posts that I want to do, but it's too late at night for me to be sitting here in front of the computer uploading pictures and making multiple posts on my blog, so those photo posts will wait til tomorrow or Thursday. Or maybe both. :)

I've been doing alot of letter writing recently, and have caught up at last! Now the letters are starting to arrive in my mailbox so I need to keep up with them this time around. :) My mother is the one who inspired me to finally tackle my stack of letters to respond to. You should definitely check out her blog for some inspiration.

Today I led the girls meeting, that my friend Samara and I lead together, by myself. We had a wonderful two hours together today laughing, playing games, eating food, talking about memorizing scripture and praying. These are all girls that go to our church and are in the 14-18 age group. They are such a delight to be around. We were challenged to memorize Psalms 103:8-14 by the next time we meet. I paired everyone up with a buddy, so we are inspired encouraged to keep at it.  I love that passage tho-wouldn't it be a great one to be able to pull out of your mind at any time of day? I am looking forward to memorizing that passage and more to come!

I am also 32 weeks pregnant. It's kinda surreal to think that in 6-8 weeks we could have a teeny-tiny baby around here. I have officially gained 36 pounds and I am not even 140lbs yet! But I definitely weigh the most I have ever weighed in my life. Feels weird. My midwife is very pleased though with my weight gain and told me today that usually from here on out she usually sees women  fluctuate with their weight gain and so I might not really gain anymore. She thinks I have gained just about all I will gain. I am ok with that. :)

This week is Brandon and I's off week from the beach. :) It's okay, you can be jealous.
We went from Sunday to Saturday this past week with my family to Nags Head, NC, and this coming Saturday to Saturday we will be spending a week with Brandon's side of the family in Kitty Hawk, NC. I love the beach, but I also love my mountains. Driving home from the beach on Saturday we saw the most spectacular sunset right as we were getting back into mountain land-and that sealed it for me. There is just nothing that compares to the mountains.

Well, I want to get back to my book and get a heating pad on my back before I head to bed. More updates to follow :)


  1. Hurray! An update.:D
    Sounds like things are going well!
    I enjoyed looking at your mom's blog, she had some good ideas on how to sign off.;) I will have to remember them when next I write you!:D
