Let's see...
Well, I haven't been here in about a month and a lot has happened since then.
I guess I should start off with the big stuff?
We bought a new house last Wednesday, and moved in this past Saturday!
We absolutely love it, and we are glad to get out of that ummm... **icky** rental. So glad.
This house has a lot of space for us to grow into, and we hope to be here a really, really long time!
There isn't too much to be done, but we plan to renovate the bathrooms and kitchen at some point-- but in the meantime, we're not worrying about that much.

The house is pretty perfect for us and Chappell loves our new street! Two of her best buddies, Barnes and Pollard are our new neighbors and she is so excited that we live on their "stweet" now. Every time we drive down our street (which is a lot), she asks me what they are doing. I'm hoping maybe she'll get over the initial excitement at some point, because
I always tell her that they are either sleeping or eating dinner. I'm afraid if I tell her they are awake she'll pester the stew out of them!!
What else is going on?
I've been super busy with my photography business and everything else that goes along with being 29 weeks pregnant. I'm feeling pretty great in general, and this has been a great pregnancy thus far. Things are happening so much faster this time! I feel like my pregnancy with Chappell dragged on for eons and this one is just flying by. I've been running myself ragged between the move and holiday sessions for the biz. I actually landed myself in the doctors office last week because I "over-did it." After several sessions and marching all over Tuscaloosa and kingdom come last Saturday, I ended up having pretty severe "pelvic pressure" and pain, so they made me come in and get checked. Turns out (thank the good Lord) that everything was fine. Apparently I just need to take it easy. Someone please tell me how to take it easy when you have a 2 year old, your own business and a move to take care of? Plea
Yesterday and today I painted the baby's nursery by myself. No signs of slowing down just yet.
There's way too much to do around here!!

Speaking of the baby's nursery, I'm loving where we are headed! The bedding is a blue/white/cream pale stripe by PomPom. I ended up painting the walls Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter and the Ballard Designs chandelier was just installed on Saturday. I'm loving it!
I'll post pics soon.

Sooooo... I suppose I'll leave you with a few shots of Miss Chappy the cowgirl and her mighty pink steed.
These were just a few I snapped before we met up with friends to go trick or treating. I also feel like I should mention that they were resized for facebook and I have no idea how they will appear on here, resolution wise- man, I'm such a nerd. Just had to get that off my chest.

Chaps and her twinie.
Just up from a nap and a little confused.
Chaps and her big preggo mama. Everyone here knows I get huge when I'm pregnant. I can't deny this fact.
Ugh those eyes!!

Ok, you would NEVER bother us. In fact, we may come down once Trotty Baby 1 and 2 are up and att'em!
Next, you are NOT huge. You are BEAUTIFUL!
And lastly, Chappy's eyes - I melt.

** NOT "Trotty". Just "Trott". ** Should have read over it first!
