Pretty Eggs

I have to say. I'm excited to decorate eggs. These are from our egg session last year. I got all the stuff at the 99 cent store... so that's always a plus! There's just something so pretty about a colorful egg... don't ya think?

speaking of eggs...I get to go to the doctor tomorrow and see my little egg turned jelly bean. I'm excited. I always say I wish there was a little "window" of clear on your belly while you are pregnant so you can see little baby. I know that would be weird, maybe kinda gross.. but I find it all so amazing. Even though this is baby #3 I read the weekly development and have daily tips that get sent to my phone. It is all just so amazing. my heart understands it, but my brain does not. It just does not make sense how a little baby forms and is in there!!!
I am hoping my nausea actually decides to go away this time instead of lingering until the end. I AM feeling better overall.. so maybe that is a good sign. I had some very UNsexy moments in the last couple of husband must be horrified. either way, he hides it well.. which is good for me!

Beachy Waves

I feel like every time summer is around the corner the 'beachy waves' come back in style. i'm either way on top of things, or not 'in style' most of the year. My hair is naturally, ugly wavy. So this is how I've been doing my hair for the last 7 years.. atleast. I just don't have the time, patience or sweat glands to blow dry my hair and then straighten it or curl it.
Here is my favorite hair product for achieving the perfect wave. no crunch, no debris, no flakes... just nice soft waves... promise~

what's in your every day bag?

i use to love HUGE bags ( i still do, i think they make me look skinnier.. haha!) but since i have a bajillion things to carry for the kids i don't carry much for myself. i carry this little messenger bag that my mother in law got me for Christmas almost every day. its just so comfortable, fits what i need, is light..and my hands are free to wipe snotty noses and rescue barbie hair that is stuck... anywhere.

my bag
Betsyville by Betsey Johnson

Deux Lux (i got it at marshall's for $12!!)

action figure
don't know who this dude is...but he made it into my purse

clif bar
i get ravenously hungry with no warning, i break out in a cold sweat and feel like i'm gonna pass out. so this is to prevent my drama. haha!

lip gloss
i don't carry any makeup. but girl, my lips are always dry!

these have become my new best friend. with all the dry heaving and nausea.. they help, for the moment they are in my mouth...

fruit snacks
these are my emergency "ack! they're having a meltdown give them something quick!" snacks

hand sanitizer
their hands are cute, but i don't trust 'em.

hair pin
i don't know how that got in, but its my little girl's, thus makes me smile :)

my phone.. and my camera would be, but i'm using it!

what are some things you carry around everyday?

rough beginnings.

man. it has been a rough few months. its not like i didn't know it was going to be hard, but the reality of it is worse. so many people told me that every pregnancy is different and that this might be 'the one' that was different. LIES!!! hahahhaa!!i still don't understand preggo's who never get sick!
i don't know if it is worse....but i also didn't have 2 kids to take care of the last 2 times!
lying in bed, gagging, dry heaving, throwing up.. feeling icky everywhere. its weird, because i am such an anxious person i can rarely just 'lie' and do absolutely nothing. one day my husband comes into the room and says "why don't you watch some tv atleast? you have been lying in the dark for a week" and i was just like " i can't" i literally felt like i could not do anything... going to the bathroom was my outing for the day.
all that complaining to say... i think i'm slowly coming back to life.
i'm still nauseous and gaggy... with the worst cottonmouth imagineable. BUT i can actually get up, sit up... and i WANT to take a shower. haha!!

anyways. today i woke up feeling thankful. thankful that God is in control, when i (and my body are not). that there are people that love me and those that i love so dearly. the sun is shining, the birds are chirping... i got a new is pretty good.
hope you are all doing well!
