Less Than 3 Months To Go

According to my little preggo app, I have 88 days left to go in this pregnancy. It's been such a great experience so far and we managed to fit in the trendy "babymoon" to Hawaii with my brother and his family. It was such a lovely trip because Jamie and I got to spend time alone as a couple (our last couples vacation for a long time) and as a family as well. This lovely photo was taken at the North Shore where we got to enjoy a beautiful sunset on one of our last few nights in Oahu, Hawaii. 

Now we're madly trying to get our house in order and there's many many things on the list. The kitchen is the biggest of course and that's wrapping up hopefully in the next 2 weeks. Then it's onto all the other rooms in the house: master bedroom, baby room, bathroom and laundry room. We tried prioritizing all the things to get done in the next 2 months (in case baby decides to come early) and the list is so long that prioritizing is even more important now! 2 procrastinators put together with an impending deadline is not a good combination. Once things are moving along, hopefully I'll find some time to share some photos. 

Yesterday we spent 3 hours doing yard work. Just like last year, we had to pick a rainy weekend to do it so we got rained on, but we worked through and got a large portion done. Dandelions this year are so ridiculously brutal that I'm sure we pulled over 200 plants yesterday and there's probably another 100 left on one side of our backyard. It wasn't too bad during the weeding since I was squatting and trying to get my ligaments to stretch out. But a few hours later, both of our backs were on fire, Jamie's palm had a popped blister the size of a nickel, my wrists and ankles were very achy and overall, we concluded that we are individuals that aren't meant to garden. I kept asking Jamie, "How do older people do this?!" and his response was the same every time, "It's because we're weak."
