happy things to end the week with.

♥ date night trying out huge slices of pie at The Pizza Joint (i loved their chalkboard/art walls- my husband put our nicknames in a heart. he hearts me, le sigh)

♥ i'll be with these girls SOON! happiest birthdays to the pretty girl on the top right, our sweet Faiza. We can't wait to celebrate properly with you.

♥ i haven't stopped smiling knowing we're getting our little girl, our little Felix. Look at her nose! i'm in love, completely in love. 

♥ my husband treated me to a pedicure - i chose neon pink for Baby Girl! (though i can still see my toes, i don't look this in my floral dress anymore. how did i ever think i wasn't thin enough?!)

Happy Friday Lovies! what happy things are you ending the week with?

My nurse said she's 85% sure...

I was already crying before she told me what we were having. Seeing your baby grow from this at 8 weeks to where you can see the chambers of her little heart beating... it's all the evidence i need to know that there is a loving God.

I know sonogram photos are hard to make anything out, but here's our baby at 19 weeks:

The nurse said Baby Maxham is already photogenic - here's her "looking" at the camera. You can make out her eyes, little nose and mouth. Unreal right?

and this is the one where she said she was pretty sure it was a girl:

our baby is "mooning" the camera (as her auntie Kary said ha). Her little bum is on the right and those are her two legs (the nurse said she thought the lines where her lady bits).

We are first thrilled and so thankful to God that our baby is healthy. 

Truthfully, this mama is hoping that the 85 percent chance is accurate... i've had her name picked out for awhile.

it's pretty amazing to think there's a life inside me that's half me, half Max. i keep thinking, what will our baby look like? 

look at my husband when he was a baby-- at those curls! adorable.

(and then there's me with my missing ribbon)

Tomorrow morning we get to find out whether Baby Maxham is a sweet baby boy or girl. My hats off to those who can wait until delivery time to find out (like my parents with all six of us) because this Mama is anxious!

i'll let you Lovies know tomorrow. eek! xoxo

happy things to end the week with.

♥ ordering a new bottle of my favorite every day scent for half the price. kitty, do you recognize my coasters? :)
♥ catching up with some treats (since i can't have coffee, i love me some chocolate banana vivanos! so refreshing)

♥ last weekend i celebrated Candice's birthday with this great group of girls at Garufu (i'm actually covered by the beautiful birthday girl-- even with heels i'm pretty short). Afterwards i met up with my husband and his coworkers at Hope & Anchor. Who knew you could have so much fun at a patio bar without drinking? 

♥ my baby bump (i've already gained 14 pounds!)

Happy Friday Lovies! what happy things are you ending the week with?

happy things to end the week with.

♥ i'm terribly late to "the party" but twinkie & Marisa finally got me there.

♥ yay, some counter space! i finally organized my toiletries and threw away old half empty bathroom products.

♥ speaking of cleaning house, i ordered the heirloom warmer from Scentsy (loved the doily look) and met a new friend in the process. When i contacted Mari, i begged her to help a girl with three dogs out lol she understood because she has four of her own :) (my favorite scent is pixie)

♥ the sweetest gift from Marianne. It's the perfect gift for any expectant mom but especially now at 18 weeks when my baby bump is growing but hasn't exactly "popped." It's handmade porcelain on sterling silver and my photo doesn't do it justice. beautiful. 

♥ my 13-year-old self was super excited to see Leo in 3D :) once upon a time, he covered my bedroom walls. The things my husband does for his pregnant wife-- he hated every minute of it! ha

this is what Easter looks like when you have a cold.

You can't enjoy the delicious care package your sweet in-laws sent (i think it's adorable they sent us each a candy bunny) which is hard on this Reese's egg addict let me tell you... (and this is only some of our candy stash) 

But thank goodness for Sunday night baseball.

I'm 17 weeks (our baby went from a lemon to the size of a turnip). This baby bump is growing!
Lovies, i hope you enjoyed this Easter weekend and remembered why we truly celebrate this day. I'm so thankful and blessed for this life because of Him (even when i'm sick and more whiny than usual. my poor husband). xo

Wishing I had Red Ruby Slippers.

I would click them together and be at The Rangers Ballpark in Arlington for Opening Day. 

I wrote something similar as my facebook status and my friend Christopher snapped this photo and posted it on my wall:

sweetest thing.

Let's Go Rangers!!!

I'd do it all again.

It's so easy to wonder what your life would have been like if you chose a different life [a different person]. The what ifs, the maybes.

I sometimes catch myself restless with that very wonder.

I heard this song and it made me think of my husband and our beginning. And with my whole heart I know, I'd do it all again. For him, my love.

"I was about to walk away
You held my hand and said, "please stay"
'cause you and me are made to be
And I'd do it all again."

(my favorite song by the same artist)
