{prayer request}

.okay. so I know this is really random, however I felt the need to share it. My best friend Melanie D. lost her brother to a car accident on August 8th. She lost her grandfather 2 weeks later to a heart attack. Early Friday morning, she lost her husband due to a car accident. She has 2 little girls. Zoe 3 months old. Keira 3 years old. She has literally lost everything...please keep her and her girls in your thoughts and prayers.


.pumpkin butter.

.okay - so I want to make my own Pumpkin Butter. does anyone out there have any good recipes for it? I have been looking on line and have found a couple. unfortunately I won't be able to use 'real' pumpkin. I will use the pureed kind already in a can. I have no time to carve out a pumpkin and all of that with baby due here in a week or so... any suggestions? I would appreciate it.


.update time - indeed.

.baby E is on his way.

{35 weeks}

(as of September 5th)

I am now 37 weeks pregnant and I am finally ready to be done with it all. ha ha. I am feeling fine, other than the usual swollen feet and hands, crampy body, back aches, and some small contractions. Finally over the migraines - THANK GOD! I had my baby shower - it was thrown on the 4th of September, and here in OH, it was a VERY windy day. So it was crazy and hilarious to see us all trying to keep our food on our plates, and tablecloths on the tables, and decorations from going everywhere. ha ha. Hope all of you are doing well out there in the blogging world.

Due: October 13th.

Last Doctor Appointment (last monday): dilated 3cm.

This should be interesting. hmm.
