Well hello my long lost loves!!! Boy have I been a horrible blogger and you have been extremely patient and gracious followers. The past couple months have been pretty difficult and discouraging. As thrilled as I am to be expecting a little one, since finding out I was pregnant, I haven't seemed to shake these no fun pregnancy symptoms. I am FINALLY, as in the past 2 weeks, feeling less nauseous and not throwing up as much. I am still SO tired and am now beginning to regularly feel weak, light headed and like I'm going to pass out. It seems to be one thing after another. It really has taken a toll on me - being sick for months is something I've never experienced before. It was definitely an adjustment to allow myself time to rest and relax, even though I was still working part time and doing college ministry. I am grateful to be feeling even the smallest bit better.:)

But here I am, well enough to say hello and post again. I really have missed you. (I apologize for the bad pictures. Neither of my cameras were working properly this morning and so the iPhone stepped in to save the day)
This dress was actually FREE. I know. Nothing is free these days. And in a round about way, it wasn't, cause I had to drop off a bunch of clothes I didn't want, so I could get bags of clothes that other people didn't want. All that to say, I got it at a clothing swap. It was a community event in which if you drop off 3 bags, you got to fill 3 bags of clothes that you wanted. It was so fun!!! I just crammed stuff in them because theres no time to try the stuff on - you just take what you think looks cute and then wait to find out if it looks cute on you when you get home.:) This dress has POCKETS. LOVE IT. Its an Old Navy dress.
I tried my hardest to show you my bump. HA! In otherwords, my LACK OF BUMP. I will be 4 months pregnant this Saturday and I have got NOTHING to show for it. I'm not complaining, but people are starting to think I've just been feigning sickness for the past 2 1/2 months. I promise its legit. I do have sonogram pictures to prove that there is a child in somewhere in there.
I am hoping to post more often now that I haven't been spending the majority of my days kneeling in front of my toilet. THANK YOU for your patience with me. I'd be super surprised if you haven't given up on me since I've been gone so long. But for those who are still here - you are precious and beautiful to me. And I can't wait to start scouring thrift stores for pregnancy clothes.:)


  1. YAY SHE'S BACK!!! I open your blog every day along with my other daily reads and I always hope that the date will change on the latest blog post and today it did :)

    So very glad you're starting to feel better! I miss you and will see you next week!!

  2. WELCOME BACK!!!!!!!

    I hit up your blog today for the first time in over a week (KNOWING you've been slacking... er... sick :P) and couldn't believe my eyes when there was a new post!

    Glad to hear you are STARTING to KINDA feel better. Hopefully it continues to get better each day.

    I TOTALLY recognized that dress as soon as I opened this post! Like you siad, it's from Old Navy but several years ago... I bought four of them (out of the 6 or 8 patterns) bc they are so awesome, but none of this pattern. GREAT SCORE!

    I can't believe the swap was like that! That's sick! What else did you get????

  3. i have a bigger "baby bump" after a routine breakfast. you look beautiful as always! the true bump and then some will come! excited like usual to be a part of your journey...

  4. Praying that you feel better! I miss you Anna!
    Love your cousin,

  5. I love reading your blog and am so excited that you are back! I was wondering if you were going to continue this project throughout your pregnancy and am excited to hear you are! I can't wait to see what you find!

  6. So happy to hear from you! I also love that your toilet made it into these photos too since we have been hearing so much about it LOL.

    Hope all is well!

  7. Welcome back!!! I've missed you! I am praying for you... the harder my pregnancy was, usually the harder my after pregnancy was. I just want to share that, so you can take EXTRA good care of yourself and rest and heal, when baby arrives. I am covering you in prayer regularly!!!

  8. I'm with A.co I clicked over today to your blog and yeah I saw you, and like rachel said, funny to see the toilet made in the pictures..glad you are feeling better, and that you are back, we are still here!

    Not to worry about your bump, it will come, I have a friend who is due in December and she is hardly showing, she is a small little thing, but she says she 'feels' a difference.
