{ 11 weeks }

Well, I'll be 11 weeks this week. So far these first few weeks have went by pretty fast. Hopefully, only 1 more week to go before all day morning sickness is over. I'm crossing my fingers. This time around I've been the sickest by far! I told Buck this is the last one for sure. It's going to be a long time before I forget how sick I've been! I know it will all be worth it, it always is. I already can't wait to see that sweet baby face! I have a definite "bump" already , as you can see in the photos below. I can't believe how fast #3 sticks out.
Buck keeps telling me to suck it in.......no luck there, it's out to stay! I've gained 2 pounds so far and my pants are really tight, so I've been wearing belly bands! They are a life saver!!! Not everyone knows this.....but I lost 15 pounds over this last year. So my "gut" was finally gone.....not any more! This belly is the good one though!
 I'm lucky if I can get in 1 cup of coffee a day.....which should tell you right there how sick I am!!! Most of the time NOTHING sound good to eat! Which, makes it hard to cook for my family.........

Even after all this..... WE are ALL so EXCITED to have this baby coming!!!! My feeling is that it's a girl! I was right about the first 2 so we'll see! Buck of course says it's a boy! And the girls change their minds almost every day! We LOVE you new baby rodolph!

{ weekend yard sale finds }

I found a few good things at yard sales this weekend I thought I'd share!

I bought this DK skirt for $1

This cute fall jacket was $1

old suitcase $1, I'm kinda obsessed with old suitcases in stacks, see below!

This stacks sits in my kitchen under the bar.

I bought all 3 of these for $10! I'm so excited! I've been keeping an eye for outdoor furniture for the back patio! I need to make cushions for them next week, I'll show you the finished product a little later!




 Old metal file box, $1 again I'm kinda obsessed with old metal boxes. I have several in my scraproom holding my supplies, see below!

These file boxes I painted white, your surprised , I know....... and now they hold all my chipboard letters!

This is a funky outdoor light I picked up for $2. Perfect for the back porch after a coat of paint!

Now on the back porch with the new furniture!

A great weekend for a total of  $17!

{ the big 7 }

Our Little Miss Audette turned 7 yesterday! I can't even believe it's been 7 years since this beautiful, awesome, sweet little girl was born. Her daddy and I were planning for her arrival just days ago it seems...........and now she is 7! Audette is smart and funny, shy and kind. She is a good friend and sister and she LOVES animals! She's our "addy girl".

 Here, Audette is holding her cousin Cooper's new puppy. She is in LOVE with her, of course!


 For Audette's party she wanted to have a movie theater party, so transformed our basement into a theater, complete with concessions! We watched Horton hears a who with all her friends, while eating popcorn, nachos and candy! We had a great time!



 Her "dirt cake" it's looks like dirt but it's really a yummy layered chocolate trifle!




 This is what Audette received as a present from Nana and Papa! A very large sandbox. They've been in it since my dad set it up! The first thing they was bury each other.






We are so proud of her! We love you sweet girl!

{ our 4th of july }

Our 4th of July was low key this year. Still fun thought! Mostly we did projects around the house. We camped in our front yard and roasted some hot dogs and marshmallows on the fire pit. I haven't been feeling well enough to actually go camping in the woods so we compromised with the girls and pitched the tent in the yard! We also went to Florence and watched the big fireworks show the local fire department puts on! It was beautiful!
