Nostalgia Thursday & Share A Thrift Hunt #2

Oh my life! It's been a while since I shared something to you on this blog. I hope you all are still there waiting for me and still are not tired of visiting me and reading my blog. A huge blessing God has given to us and I had to take time for myself to soak it in, to enjoy the moment in going through these first three months of pregnancy. Yes, you heard it right! My husband and I are pregnant and our little man Harley will soon be a big brother. It's very exciting to be expecting again and going through all of the baby stuff and pregnancy period and I can't wait to finally see the baby. Anyway, I have not been to the doctor yet for an appointment to find out more about the pregnancy since we decided to have a new doctor this time so it will be an exciting and interesting one.

With that said, it reminded me of my first pregnancy with my little man Harley and how excited I was to be a new mom. Although it was not that all fun and exciting because there were also these anxiety, nervousness, a lot of questions, pregnancy pain, all of these changes in your life happens all at once and at times it was very overwhelming, but I should say: "It was all worth it!".

Since it is Thursday, I would like to share you some photos before when I had my first pregnancy as my late entry for a Nostalgic Thursday.

(Harley's Nursery)

(Painting the Mural. Blue's Clues is Harley's favorite show.)

With the help of my ever supportive husband, we were able to finished all the work that was done in the nursery from priming, painting, decorating, etc. There were so many things that had to be done, but we made it and the room was ready for our little addition to come home too. Now, I am getting excited to do those things all over again. I have some new ideas in mind for the nursery and can't wait to work on it.

For another Thursday Meme, here is my entry for the "Share a Thrift Hunt Meme".

I was running some errands yesterday and drove by the school when we saw dadda was outside on his way to the school's wood shop so we stopped by and spent some time with him at school. He had 30 minutes before his next class so we let Harley play in the playground and he got to spend some time with other kids. He surely had a hard time leaving the school since he loved all the attention and being around with lots of kids. For him it was like a treat and he never wanted to leave. So after driving around town, we went home and Harley still wasn't ready to get inside the house so he spent time playing outside with the dogs even though the weather was freezing cold yesterday. It also gave me time to snap some photos of me and him out in our yard in a freezing cold day and all I had on was this grandpa's cardigan to keep me warm. And speaking of the cardigan, this green puppy is a thrift find for only a dollar. Thrifty, huh! Ah! Just my kind of price. I love it because it is warm and comfy and perfect for my growing belly. I can wear it until my last month of pregnancy when the weather starts to drop again and I need something warm, comfy and more room for my big belly to wear.
