I’m pregnant! The most exciting news I can possibly share with my husband – yet twice I’ve had to say – “I’m losing the baby”. The most gut wrenching words I’ve ever had to utter.
HAPPY MOM FRIEND MONDAY Y’ALL!!!
I think Monday is starting to become my FAVORITE day of the week! I have to skip mommy group at our church this week because EM has an early morning appointment #onecarfamilyproblems – so I’m SUPER excited that we get to have some fellowship – or cybership …?! here at Shell and Olive!
Blogging had become something I had started…and then stopped many times over the course of – well, years. Always with a vision in mind as to how my blog would turn out, yet never quite getting there. It’s hard to find your voice and to figure out exactly what it is you have to say – even for someone like me who is VERY opinionated. Then you throw in taking care of a home and two kids, while being pregnant with a third and it can be hard to get your ducks in a row.
Normally I’m on the ball and have my posts up first thing in the morning, but today, today I spent the morning snuggling a sweet boy. Today I spent the morning making pancakes with blue sprinkles – per request – today my first born baby is three!
SPD – Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction, is a layer of hell that Dante left out of his Divine Comedy and I’m calling for a rewrite!
All I ever wanted was to be a mom. I’d dream of the day I’d get married, but longed for the day that I could have a baby of my own. I remember thinking (a year before EM and I got engaged) that I’d never get married, that it wasn’t in the cards for me. Then I stopped looking. I stopped focusing on finding mister right and prayed to God that the next guy He put in my life would be THE guy and that he better work hard to prove that he was the one God had sent.
It’s MOM FRIEND MONDAY!!!

Pregnancy can do a real number on your skin. It can go two ways, you either miraculously get amazing skin, or your skin starts hating you and makes you look like a 13 year old boy.
When you have two under two and one on the way, it can be difficult to make “us time”. Throw in a crazy schedule (read – trying to get the boys ON a schedule), and lack of date night funds, you do what you gotta do to find ways to reconnect! That means telling your husband to pick up some wine on the way home, busting out The Oregon Trail Card Game and popping some homemade popcorn.
