Midweek Update

Even though hubby worked crazy overtime this weekend, when he got home around 11:30 Saturday morning, he still made a point to make it a great time for us! He said it was "Miranda Appreciation Day," but he actually does those semi-regularly, so I decided to change it and make it "Team Diranda" appreciation day! It was our 1 year, 1 month, and 3 day wedding anniversary, afterall ;-)

 We had spent the majority of our time out at farmer's market (which is AWESOME!) then in stores. I get burnt out in stores sometimes and just need to get out of town! Hubby was understanding and brought me out to the lake! Just seeing it brings peace to my soul!
 Hubby geared up and set about making a place for us by the water!
 Who needs chairs though when you can sit on giant rocks?!
 And of course, boys always have to dig around and see what's hiding under rocks by the water!
Hehehee... My super-cute macho man! No one makes me smile like him!

I'm 6 MONTHS PREGNANT ya'll!!! Its crazy how fast this is coming along! I get to meet my baby in about 3 1/2 months! Aaand David had to do a photo shoot ;-)
I have cut my hair FOUR times since pregnancy... It's so nice to have it short for ease of styling and lightness for this HOT weather!! I cut off 10 inches in February, then mid march I cut it again, Then towards the end of April, and not about 1-2 weeks ago just cut it again! At least 2-4 inches each time. My hair has always grown fast, but this is crazy!!!

 *What I wore: tank/dots; skirt/maternity-borrowed from boss for the duration of this pregnancy; skinny belt/shade clothing; bracelet/grandma's jewelry box; wedding rings on a chain for my necklace; shades/kohls
 Aww Papa Bear and Mama Bear! HAPPY!!!
 There goes Papa Bear, blazing the trail for big 'ole Mama Bear, to tired to make it up the hill to the car!
 When we got home we made dinner! David is always on the onions, he chops and caramelizes. In between he hands me anything I need, looks for other things to do to help dinner along.
 My plate: Burger loaded with bacon, lettuce, tomato, onions (lightly caramelized), and mayo. Summer squash (from farmers market!) sauteed in olive oil, seasoned with thyme, some sea salt, fresh lemon juice. Guacamole for building good fat to fill out my son's face and grow his brain! Homemade tortilla chips.
 Hubby's plate: Two barbeque bacon burgers. :-)

Project Update!!! Since buying the yarn I have completed all the squares, turned the squares into 4 rows, and now I have to join the rows, and then add the border in chocolate brown yarn!
I will be so excited to have my son's play mat finished and hopefully start making him some cute little toys and maybe a blanket!

This is TOTALLY my theme song!

Hope everyone has a super-blest day! Yay for it being Bible study day!



  1. Congratulations on your pregnancy, Miranda. You look beautiful! The squares are adorable and will make an adorable play mat.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Samantha and the positive feedback! I'll be hanging out at your blog some now ;-)

  2. 6 months already?! time flies! Your hair looks fantastic in these pics! I need to get on your diet... tried to give blood this week and my iron was low :( Can't wait for pool time tomorrow!

  3. Thanks Beth! And... you totally made me laugh, you wanting to be on my diet! LOL looking forward to tomorrow too!

  4. Hi Miranda, thanks for stopping by my corner of the world. That lake area would bring peace to my soul, too. I love being in the great outdoors, but our summer weather doesn't much allow it. Congrats on your pregnancy. I have two boys who will be 17 and 14 in October (our anniversary is also in October) -- my how time flies! Hubby will make salads and eggs, but that's about the extent of his cooking in the kitchen. Before we were married, he did make some pretty awesome Arabic dishes to try and win me over. Ha! He will try just about anything I make. I totally revamped my style of eating 7 years ago when I wanted to get healthy/lose weight and then about 3 years ago, I became vegetarian. He doesn't get it, but he's okay with it. He doesn't like oatmeal though, so that's why he rolled his eyes at the oatcakes, but he ate some of it yesterday morning (and it didn't kill him :). That playmat is turning out beautifully. Have a great weekend. best wishes, Tammy
