Goodbyes already?!

Two weeks ago we said goodbye to some awesome people! Ali and Brian Childs last minute decided to move to Snowflake, Arizona. They packed up and left with no job there or a place to live. Did I mention they have Everett who is about 3 months old? Within the first week there Brian got a job and they got the house they were looking at to rent. Talk about a leap of faith. They are such an example! I know what they did really had an impact on Scott and me. This is especially true since we could do the same exact thing come June. We learned a lot from their example. Here are some parting shots with our last night together at the Kirkam's.

Yesterday for Valentines Day I made this delicious chicken. It's super easy! With a side of asparagus it was yummmmmy. I finally finished our picture/name/thingy for Scott. You might have seen it on Oprah. At Michaels one with five letters is a little over $200. I made ours for $11.90. The frame was on sale and to print my pictures cost 90 cents. I say Happy Valentines day to me too!

I had this thought.

My thought was, why do I keep taking photos every week? It's not like I'm changing that much. UM. Right, this compared to last weeks, I think is very different! I am glad I'm taking these cheesy photos of my growing self. So here I am, 28 weeks and a day. AKA a day over 7 months. CRAZY.
