Here I Grow: Week 12, A Winner and Our Weekend

This weekend has been one of those that I can claim as almost perfect. Yes, it went fast but, it was filled with the absolute perfect mix of family, friends and encouraging words via Beth Moore.

Yesterday my hubby was sweet and stayed home with the kids while I attended an all day Beth Moore simulcast. Have you heard of Beth Moore? Have you ever seen her speak in person? Well, I'd heard of her but, I've never done any of her Bible studies or attended any of her events until yesterday.

Holy Moly......

I don't even know how to describe how amazing it was. Through her, God spoke to me a few very important things that I've been needing to hear. It was perfect and with her wonderful speaking and the sweet time of worship, I walked away super encouraged. So, if you ever have a chance to attend one of her events.....this is me telling you to JUMP ON IT!!!
When I got home from the simulcast, Judah was waiting to dress up in his fire clothes and have me take pictures of him and Daddy.
 In this picture, Judah said that they were "saving Paisley". Seriously, these guys melt me.
Sunday was filled with church, Seahawk football watching with my sister and her family, homemade chili and the best Chewy Gingerbread Cookies on this planet. The recipe is from Martha Stewart and I promise that you will not be disappointed! 
And now for Week 12!
How I'm Feeling: The nausea is still here and in full force. I'm getting tired of it but, it should be better soon and I know it's totally worth it. 

Weight Gain: I've gained 6 pounds. Not thrilled about that number but, it could be worse. My goal is to gain the average 25-35lb and if I stay within that range, I'll be a happy camper. 

What I'm Wearing: Normal clothes but, I'm starting to be a bit more picky with my pants. I still feel like I'm practically allergic to maternity clothes so, I'll be pushing my pants down low for as long as I can get away with it. 

What I'm Eating/Craving: Oh boy, my cravings or food aversions change by the hour. This week I've been loving cheese, V8 juice, my husbands homemade chili and I had the best hummus the other night. If I like it, it's like the best thing on earth and if I don't like it, you mine as well remove it from the house, before I remove you. 

How I'm Sleeping: Fine and dandy. Still getting up once a night to pee. 

Emotions/Thoughts/Feelings: At this point, I'm feeling grateful that the first trimester is almost over and that I should be able to feel the baby move in about a month or so. I'm feeling blessed, thankful and I'm not taking any of this for granted. 

Lastly, I just want to say a big thank you to all of you who entered the Erin Baker's Cookie Giveaway! You guys rock and you're one of the reasons that I love blogging as much as I do.
