I'm back!!!

So I haven't written in quite awhile. A lot of things have happened since April 2011! Not to go into too much detail, I'll just give the details from 2012!

First things first, in March we found out that we were pregnant!!! So exciting! We are having a little boy, due on November 30 (Yes, I know that has already pasted. More on that later)

This is around eleven weeks.

In May we moved from bitter cold Michigan to my home state of Georgia. Matt became the pastor of the Buford Family Seventh Day Adventist Church. 

At the end of June we closed on our first house! Now we're really grown ups, right? 

Since buying the house, every wall has been painted, new carpet throughout the house, made our own concrete kitchen counter tops, new recessed lighting in the kitchen, and many other smaller projects. But unfortunately there is still so much to do. There will be many more renovations to come in 2013. 

When we moved from Michigan and found out that we were pregnant, Matt and I decided that we wanted me to stay home full-time when the baby got here. But since Georgia has made it anything but easy to get my license as a hygienist in this state, and who wants to hire a pregnant lady that will only be there for a couple of months, I've been home since the move. You may ask, what have I been doing? Well, sometimes I wonder that too. But I'm so much less stressed, the house definitely feels much more livable, and Matt and I have had a lot of fun just hanging out the two of us.

So, our baby boy was due on November 30; it's December 2. Unfortunately, he has not arrived yet. We're growing very impatient. Since I have no pictures to show you of my precious little boy, here are the major changes that have happened in the last couple of months.

May 30, 2012 (14 weeks)
December 2, 2012 ("40 weeks")
With all the exciting things that are happening in my life currently, I really wanted to get back to blogging. (Matt is very excited!!)

Some exciting things that we have planned for 2013 are: learning what in the world it is like to have an additional person to be responsible for (I know my life is about to change), Matt is going to do his first Ironman, and I'm going to attempt to get back into triathlons soon (not sure what it will be like mixing training with motherhood).

So stay tuned.... Hopefully a little boy with arrive soon!
