10 Week Bump

How far along? 10 Weeks.. 5 Days.. 205 Days to go
Size of the baby? A prune or peanut
Maternity Clothes? Not yet.. I have a few pairs ready to try out though. I'm living in yoga pants currently.  They are so much more comfy than jeans.
Weight Gain: About 1lb so far I think. Drs apnt next week to know for sure
Stretch Marks? I invested in Palmer's lotion.
Gender? Most everyone, along with me seems to think girl. Chris says boy.
Movement? Not yet…cannot wait to feel those little kicks, though. 

Sleep? Have a few restless night but overall sleep is not too bad.
Food Cravings? Fruit mostly.
What I Miss: Mostly being able to have a social drink with everyone every once in a while. Like Mimosas last weekend a Christmas looked yummy even though I couldn't have any.
Symptoms? Tired all the time. So Ive been taking a lot of naps.  Morning Day and Night Sickness. It hits me at all moments of every single day. And I am keeping a migraine. Does any one have any natural remedies to help with these?
Best Moment of the Week? Actually talking to my mom on the phone today about what dad wants to be called. We are thinking Papa Todd might just have a ring to it. lol.

Kitchen Renovations

We had new cabinets and counter top delivered about a month ago.  My house was an absolute disaster for about a week.  Boxes stacked everywhere. Dust everywhere. Clutter everywhere!

We started tearing out all the cabinets on a Saturday morning. Please ignore my super gross old stove over there.  We had everything torn out, sanded down, dad put in electrical outlets, and painted by Monday morning for my hubs' uncle to come put in our new kitchen!

See that dishwasher right there.. Yeah.. I've never used or had one until now.. I refuse to ever live without one again.

Bottom line.. I LOVE my new kitchen and appliances. I cannot get enough of them.  Everything was completed by Friday afternoon and everything was cleaned up the following week, so I had my clutter dust free house back in order.

Birch and Bark Boxes

I just ordered my first few months subscriptions for Birch Box and Bark Box.

Birch Box is a monthly subscription for men or women that comes around the middle of each month. Contains samples of skin care, perfumes, make up, shampoos, etc.  I have been on the waiting list since October for this, and I am super excited to recieve my first box!  Birch box is overall very cheap. $10 a month with free shipping.

I also just signed up for my first Bark Box. Yes I said Bark Box.. For my Sweet Girls Hurley and Harley.  I went for the medium 20lb to 50lb since my dogs are around 15 lbs and 50 lbs.  I cannot wait to get my first box for them. I've read nothing but awesome reviews for this box.  You can sign up here for Barkbox and recieve $5 off your purchase.  I paid for the 3 month subscription to start off with to make sure its exactly what I wanted. $23 a month with free shipping.
