Hey there, fam!! What’s up? Gosh, I am so sorry things have been so quiet here on the blog. Life has been a whirlwind lately. There’s just so much going on and I’m going to catch you up on everything today.
– HAPPENINGS –
Over the past month, I’ve been sharing about how Michael and I will be moving closer to his work (our church) soon. Well, tomorrow’s the big day! The day we’re getting the keys to the townhome we’ll be renting. We’re in love with it and the location is perfect – just 3-5 minutes from the church in a safe neighborhood. We’re excited about this next step but it also brings a bit of stress to our plates since we’re going to be putting our home on the market soon.
This move is going to be different than any of our other moves because we’ll be moving in two stages. The first stage is to get all bedroom furniture and anything that we’re not using for staging out of our home and down to the new place. We’re planning on starting to stay there at some point this weekend if all goes to plan. The second stage of moving will be after we sell our home when we get to clear out what we used to stage some of the rooms.
We have peace about this entire transition and we’re praying that our home sells quickly so we won’t have to carry our mortgage and rent for long. It’s so bittersweet to be leaving our first home but we’re excited about the future. Please, join us in prayer that our home sells quickly!
I’M AN AUNTIE AGAIN…
My younger sister, Bethany, went into premature labor at 26 weeks almost 3 weeks ago with her baby girl. The cause is still unknown but praise be to God that both my sister and her baby girl are doing amazing! It was definitely a scary day and the fact I couldn’t be in Massachusetts with her rattled me but through it all, we all had peace. Please be praying for my sister and her baby girl. It’s a long road with the NICU but God’s got this!
I SAID “GOODBYE” TO THE AIRBNB…
Many of you know that for the past year, I was an Airbnb property manager. I took care of a very large home and managed all of the communication between guests. It was definitely a huge growing experience for me. It brought me out of my comfort zone more times than I can count. It was a great side job for me but I said goodbye to it the other weekend. I was able to pass it on to an amazing lady so I know it’s in great hands!

I am so sorry that I’ve been slacking on getting new content out. I promise I’ll get better once the moving is over. 🙂 Thanks for hanging in there with me.
– CURRENTLY –
EATING… Like I mentioned in my most recent bumpdate post, my cravings have been all over the place. I definitely keep to healthy foods but I definitely have some of my cravings, too… like, McDonald’s nuggets with honey. Yum!! I actually used to eat them like that as a kid and I totally forgot about nuggets with honey until another mom posted about it in a FB group that I’m in.
OBSESSED WITH… Packing. Seriously. I really enjoy packing… probably because I’m in control and know where everything is. It’s like Tetris in real life!
EXCITED TO… Share what Baby T is very soon!! 🙂 What do you think? Boy or girl? I’m also excited to slowly start on Baby T’s nursery once we move.
WATCHING… All my fall shows that have started up! Grey’s, Bull, NCIS, SVU, and Seal Team starts this week. So, so happy my shows are back on because I hit a point where I had nothing to watch!
WEARING… All the sweatpants! But, for real. I’m home most of the time so you bet I’m going to be as comfy as I can be. When I go out, I either reach for a t-shirt dress or one of my only pairs of athletic leggings that fit still, haha. It’s tough, you guys. Even before my baby bump was showing like it is now, I had to pack away most of my favorite leggings because they’re all high-waisted and were too tight. These leggings from Aerie have been my favorite for TWO years now and they still fit me! YAY. I’m highly considering getting them in a size or two up just to have.
The fact that these leggings are still being sold even after two years speaks volumes!! Okay, I could go on forever about them, haha. I love them! They’re having a cool deal right now, too!
Thanks for catching up with me today! How are you? Tell me what’s going on in your life. Are you excited for fall to arrive? Let’s chat!
