hi! holy crap.. it’s been a real long time since i have opened my blogging dashboard. needless to say, i have been a busy bee! between randy’s health issues, my birthday, my day job, and blend retreat.. i haven’t had a moment to spare.
i do want to take some time to tell you all about blend retreat, so you better believe i will be posting a little more frequently this week! i am a loser and don’t have an awesome camera anymore (it broke over a year ago and i am poor), so i will wait to steal some of lindsay’s pics before i dive into any details.
but for now, here are some iphone photos from the past week or so with brief little snippets of what they are!
i had a big brunch with friends on my birthday. i love that my BFF is pregnant with me!
i spent approximately 1.6327 hours at the pool on my birthday and got the worst sunburn of my life. i even wore sunscreen. pregnant skin must be more sensitive?
marshall got me my favorite: oreo ice cream cake. he sang and everything! and, guess what? i am only 13.
momma b gave me a pot of flowers for mother’s day. it didn’t take me long to kill them. whomp whomp. i sure hope i am better at taking care of a real life baby.
speaking of the baby.. marshall and our friend nick painted birch trees on the nursery wall! it only took them a few hours and they did an amazing job. i need to take an after pic.. i will. soon. promise.
i took my glucose test on thursday to check for gestational diabetes. the drink was nowhere near as bad as i had heard. the colonoscopy drink was WAY worse. anyway, i passed. yippee.
thursday day and night was spent working our butts off to get ready for blend retreat. after multiple trips to park city, lots of boxes loaded, unloaded, and unpacked, and a few different assembly lines.. swag bags were packed up and ready for friday. all before 11 PM!
blend recaps are coming.. but here are a few random shots from the weekend. it was SO much fun! i love planning and executing this event every year. i think every year it gets better and better! i am so grateful for this community and all the wonderful people who made the weekend a fun, fabulous success. can’t wait to share more. (and talk about next year’s retreat!)
it was super cool to have my sisters, SIL, and mom in attendance. love them.
and, finally, this photo is basically the best.
randy is recovering from his biopsy. however, we still don’t have all the tests back. i HATE waiting. so far, we know he has fibrosis of the liver and we are waiting to hear his copper levels to know if it is reversible or not. we should know today. thank you all for your prayers and positive vibes. fingers crossed we can get this pup back to his healthy, happy self.
oh, and because penny is cute…
the end :)
1. what in the world have you been up to?!
2. what is the last thing you took a photo of?
