jam at the farmer's market
cream sodas


joshua actually had a weekend off. shut the front door
this hasn't happened for, well, maybe a year?
i'm so thankful for his job, but sometimes a normal routine would be nice.
if you know anything about us, we operate on a very non-conventional schedule. 
it can make life very interesting :)

so, we soaked up the time off by going on a lot of walks, enjoyed an afternoon downtown, found the cutest shop that sold cream sodas (which we needed because it was 100 degrees yesterday), hung out at barnes & noble, did some laundry, went to a really fun BBQ with friends, enjoyed a wonderful church service, took a nap, watched a few movies, did some house work, and yelled at the puppy to stop eating our popcorn.

our baby girl is at a point in my belly where we can actually feel her little feet and butt from the outside and her kicks are becoming full on jolts and stabs. i can feel her hiccups now.
after 25 minutes of poking and prodding to get her to wake up, we finally saw her face for the first time
on thursday via 3/4D. it was amazing. i can't wait to share pics. 
this is a really beautiful time in our lives and i kind of just want to freeze time for a bit.


Cup Half Full LinkUp Party

The goal of this link up party is to have a place where women can come each week and simply link back to posts where they find beauty in their life. This is not a subject-specific link up party, but simply an overall theme of contented, thankful way of living. I don't really care what you want to link up, as long as it promotes a general positive, thankful, my-cup-is-half-full vibe.
  • Link up to your specific blog post, not to your blog's main page.
  • Make this an interactive link up party by trying to visit a few other blogs while you're here and stop and show them some love-- because everyone loves comments! :)  
  • Grab a button or link back to this post so that your blog readers can come and join in on the fun, too!
