Back with some NEWS.

Hello friends.  Well, it's been a good two months since I've posted.  And while I feel like I have good reasons, I also feel like I've been missing my friends in the blogging world and letting you guys down for some reason.

First, I received a Jury summons at the end of August and was selected for the Jury Duty on a 4 week trial.  It was a really interesting experience (one that I'm sure would have been just as interesting had it lasted only 2 days....but you do what you have to do).  Our legal system is incredible (not without flaw, i'm sure) but I have experienced first hand just what it can do for people and I'm grateful in a weird way for the experience.

Second, for the last several months, I've been keeping secrets around here.  In about 8 weeks, we are adding another little girl to the family!  We can.not.wait.  Really.  We are so excited.

Here is me 3 weeks ago (at about  29 weeks)

I don't feel like that's an excuse for my lack of blogging....because I have felt pretty good this time around, but I have lost all sorts of motivation when it comes to doing the essentials (like housework, making dinner, and know, the important stuff...haha).

So there you have it.  I have actually been sewing and making things, but they usually end up being for someone else and I keep forgetting to take pictures before sending them away.  I do have some things to show you guys, including a tutorial if I can get it up this week, so stay tuned if you are still around and I'll try to get back on the horse.

In other news, I've been using Pinterest for the last few months and would definitely call my love for it an addiction.  You can see my boards by clicking the button at the left or below.  Don't be surprised when you see that a lot of them are food related.....I think about food a lot these days (actually, that's normal for me even when I'm not pregnant).

Hope you all had a great weekend.  Thanks for sticking around.
