MMM :)


Hey there!!
If you wanna know more about MMM
Please go HERE and read more!!

So how have I been doing??
well...the last time I went into the doctor the nurse 
said "You only gained two lbs" 
I don't know if thats not a lot while your pregnant to gain in a month...
but it sure feels like a lot.

I'm showing so much faster this time, and I feel like the hungry 
stages that are suppose to happen later in pregnancy started a lot 
earlier this time around..

But  I am eating healthy...Lots of fruit, veggies, and lean meats..
(with my occasional dessert)

I found this first I thought it sounded
 a little odd...
but I gave it a try and it is DELICIOUS! 

Did I mention I am SOOO EXCITED for summer..

One reason being
My family always has TONS of it!
I usually can't leave my grandparents house with out them 
giving me two during the summer!  

I was thinking....
Are you one of those people who do really well on the week days and then totally blow eating healthy and exercising on the weekends?? I tend to do that...I figure 

"O it's the weekend....whatever"

WELL.. if you take Friday, Saturday and Sunday off from working out or eating right because it’s the weekend… thats 12 days of the month... Almost half
YIKES...that theory is out the window.

 Found her on pinterest!
Yes, she is my motivation right now!:)

Pinteresting Wednesday....Were MOVING

Jayson, Ty, Baby Fetus and I are moving in less then a week!

I am so excited to get into a bigger space!
Four people in a one bedroom just was not going to work...

I have so many ideas and dreams for our new little (but bigger) space.

I am so excited for the kids to have their own room...

Two bedrooms seems like a dream at this point! 

I love these for the living room or kitchen...

So mine is so not going to look this amazing...
but I want those added on shelves in our closet. 

Why have I not thought of this???

Got this all started..AND LOVE IT SO FAR.
Found a huge frame at D.I for six dollars and 
painted it blue...can't wait to finish it!!

Actually just finished this last night. 
I used yellow paper and it will go in our new bathroom..
show you next week!!       

Another Best Idea EVER!
LOVE this so much...will definitely be a to-do 
as soon as we get moved in and I get a few more baby to-do's done.

O man I want this in our bathroom so bad...
LOVE the shape, color, glass...EVERYTHING!!

new things

 Ember and I just chillin!
 I will be 22 weeks on Friday:) I'm feeling great... 
Starting to feel her moving around more.

Ty I think gets cuter and cuter each day. 
I adore this picture of him...
catches his personality so well!

Remember the QUIET BOOK ?
Well it's a huge hit! Ty wants to play with it all the time.
(I also love this)

He is really doing well on eating with a spoon on his own....
most of the time.
He wont let me feed him anymore though...he has to do it 
alone or he will throw a fit.

We don't have a bathtub (BUT WE WILL WHEN WE MOVE!!!)
so when we go to visit grandma and grandpa its a huge treat for Ty to get to play in the tub..
I think he would stay in there for hours if I would let him.

I hate standing in line at the grocery store...
Ty gets so rowdie...
am I a bad mom for fixing this problem with chocolate??

Heather comes over a lot and Ty LOVES to sit in her truck...
He is definitely ALL BOY!!!

Pinteresting Wednesday


Did I mention Jayson and I are expecting a 
sweet baby girl??

  Ember Nicole Whetman

We are very excited! I can't believe it still.. 
I have actually been a little pin-crazy lately so I thought
 I would share some of the board dedicated to her.

One thing I am seriously looking forward to with having a girl!

She of course will have a sweet pink room

ah I love this diaper cover...want want want! 

So beautiful...I want one for me too..

She will still sport the sporty side!!

I made Ty one just like this (but brown obviously) 
I will make him a new, bigger one and put them in matching football onesies! 

Yes, Jayson is a packers freak err fan..
and yes, if they go to the super bowl..she will have something similar to this.

LOVE...simple and pretty and I think I may actually be able to pull it off!

maybe, so cute...but Jays thinks its a little weird..
ha we will see..i like it!

What do you think??
If you have a pin board with lots of cute
 little girly things let me know so I can follow you!!

Tell Me Tuesday #41


HEY there!!! 

I hope you all had a VERY HAPPY EASTER:)
Sorry for the no link up last week...
our internet was out for a few days:( 

I am so excited to move...
maybe we will have a better connection.

So no features this week:( but I do want to share something!!

Mom and I had a craft day and made baby Embers crib setting...I can't wait to show you...hehe BUT I want to take pictures of it in the crib all set up when we move. I feel the pictures of it laying on the floor just do not do it justice...

So here is a small sneak peak of the cuteness in store!! 

We did before and after pictures that I will also be posting for now at least you get to see the cute colors I picked!! 

So what have you been up to??

Little man

I love watching Ty and Jayson Play...We went to the church to play basketball...Ty was interested for a little while...He loves to throw the ball and play pass...but as soon as he found the balloon he totally lost interest in the game and played with it the remainder of the time.... 

love him



AND I did SOOO GOOD!!! I didn't eat the usual delicious fatty fair food. It was hard but pretty worth it.

I have been exercising in moderation...I did get the OK from my doctor to be more active...I just worry so much and feel so protective since I had the spotting 
a few weeks ago. 

One thing I have been struggling A LOT with this pregnancy is 


This terrible awful awful awful annoying burn kept me up ALL 
night last night...and I don't mean I just had a hard time sleeping...I woke up at 1am with it...It was different this time...rather than a constant pain (like it usually is) It would come and be extremely painful for about bad I was sitting up hitting the bed and having trouble breathing...It would slowly feel better and in another five minutes it would happen again...repeating all night. I remember looking at the clock at 5:30 and thinking there is no way I am going to be doing anything today...I was right.. I finally fell asleep from sheer exhaustion and when I woke up at 7:00 I had a huge migraine (im sure from the lack of sleep)...

Thankfully I have the most wonderful husband in the world. He let me go back to bed and try to get some sleep..

I am already on a prescription that I take every day...I don't eat anything that I think will trigger it..I chew a lot of antacids and I drink a glass of milk before I go to bed...I really cant think of anything I can do any different...

If you have any home remedies I would LOVE to hear them!!


I was so excited to see this...
I have been wanting nothing but April to be over with so we can move into our new apartment and I can start nesting for baby Ember....and enjoy the summer sun a little more...
Seeing this reminded me to slow down and enjoy every moment!!  
Whatever it may be exercise, eating better, or just being happy...make right now your best month yet!! 

Um, yes please!! This looks so good!!
get the recipe HERE

honestly...if you would have asked me a few months ago
about running I would have told you it was one of the most important things in my life...made me feel so good...
how can I break the fear of running while pregnant??

All thoughts are appreciated! 
thanks ladies...
