"Maternity Photos"

Pregnancy is just a little bit different the second time around.  For one, I didn't feel any desire to get maternity photos taken.  
We went to the park last Sunday to walk around and ended up taking some impromptu belly shots.
So this might be as good as it gets this pregnancy!

{34 weeks}

Matthew's Wedding

I posted previously about our fun trip to Utah for Matthew's wedding, but here are some fun photos he got back from his photographer.

Galveston Girls' Getaway

As soon as my younger sister, Lindsay, announced she was pregnant, we knew we needed to take a girls trip while both of us were preggo.  
It was seriously just what I needed to get recharged.
It was the ultimate girls weekend.  We got mani/pedis, slept in way too late, saw Pitch Perfect 2, relaxed at the pool for two days straight, and ate WAY too much.  Seriously let's not talk about how much weight I gained that weekend.

We stayed at a Marriott right across from the beach.

Showin off our toes

Too much food

Not enough pool time

Home Cut Donuts for breakfast.  AMAZING.  This photo is black and white because no one should see how we look in color!

Eatin some "frickles"

Food babies or real babies?  Not sure after writing this blog post and seeing how much food we actually ate.

 33 and 17 weeks

So sad to see these favorite girls of mine go!

Strawberry Pickin

Apparently strawberries are in season for the rest of the country to pick in June, but here in Houston it's so hot they are ready to pick between February and May.
So a few weeks ago we headed to Froberg's to pick some berries.  
They had a fun little farmers market and the most delicious berry filled individual pies.
I am already planning our trip next year just for the pies :)

When we got home that night we made some homemade waffles and syrup to go with our handpicked strawberries.  Yumm!!!
