A Check-Up & Check-In

This week has been fairly busy, but relatively uneventful. Meetings and a doctor’s appointment pretty much sums up my week. Even though it’s been rather uneventful, I am absolutely beat. I guess I was spoiled from a week of rest called spring break.

Colby and I went to the doctor on Tuesday, which always gives an excuse to stop by somewhere to shop while we are down there. Living in a small town definitely has perks {like a laid back lifestyle}. However, the downside is that you can’t just run to Lowe’s or T.J. Maxx or any decent clothing store {or any store} with a wide selection of whatever it is I’m looking for.

As far as the doctor goes, I checked out just fine. I’ve gained a total of two pounds since my first weigh-in. While I’m sure some people think I’m watching what I eat and such, it couldn’t be more from the truth. I haven’t changed a thing from how I usually am {pregnancy or no pregnancy} other than increase that vitamin and water intake. Even though I’ve only gained two pounds, the bump is becoming a little more pronounced as of this week.

He was pleased with me though since all of my tests are showing up great. I’ve never been a gal to go to the doctor, so this experience has had me poked and prodded more than any time I’ve been my whole life. It’s all worth it for the little guy though. He also told me that my due date will not be pushed back like we thought it might. My due date will remain as we first thought….August 10th. Woohoo!

Afterwards, we did what I really wanted to do and that was to go to Lowe’s to check out the flower selection.

Pure heaven!

We stocked up on plenty of flowers for my front containers that sit on the steps and by the front door for now. There will be a reveal and details about all of that once the weather starts looking a bit cheerier. Rain and dampness doesn’t allow for decent pictures, so I’ll hold off for now.

We also looked around for good options for the backyard. Trees, of course. We have an ugly stump from what I’m sure was a gorgeous tree at one time. Now I’m in the market for something that will provide shade and be a nice focal point.

In other randomness…..

We are looking at finishing off the privacy fence in our yard. Hallelujah!

General Hospital {the soap I have watched nearly my whole life… and grandmother both watched it} celebrated 50 years this week! I loved every minute of the classic characters who built the show coming back.

I can’t wait to go to the beach! Warm weather is definitely my friend.

The airboat is hopefully sold as of tomorrow!

And I’m so glad tomorrow is Friday! I will be resting and relaxing this weekend! Be back soon!
