I Turned 30! Part 2 Of Where I've Been....

I turned 30th on August 5th. My husband, being the amazing man he is, bought my BFF a plane ticket to come celebrate with me. Our time together was much too short - as it always is - but I was so happy I got to spend my 30th birthday with her. She flew in the morning of my birthday and we spent the day at the salon with her NJ competition. After that, we went to dinner with Rob's parents. I wanted Chase to come with us, so I picked a restaurant that was family friendly, but still has amazing food. The next day we headed down the shore. It was so hot! Like really, really hot. I think I almost passed out on the beach. The next afternoon she left to go back to GA. We were able to fit in a few hours of shopping before her flight left.
Dani- I miss you! Come visit again soon!!! Chase misses you too.

Danielle and Chase. Isn't she pretty?

Thinking About...

cutting my hair!! I LOVE a good pixie cut and I'm getting tired of longish hair. My goal was to grow it long enough to wear a ponytail for Disney in two weeks - I accomplished my goal. As a reward, I may cut it short again when we get back. What do you think? I know it takes a special kind of girl to pull it off and I think I could be that girl. :)

Ginnifer Goodwin is my inspiration. So cute!

Getting Ready...

I'm 23 weeks pregnant today. In 3 months my maternity leave will start - I can't wait!!! My plan is to be out until April and come back to work part time until Chase starts Kindergarten. To say I'm stressed is an understatement. I'm not really sure how to express how I feel about having two kids - a combination of shear joy and gut wrenching fear. I know I can handle the physical and psychological demands of having two kids, but the financial part of it scares the crap out of me. I know I need to trust that the Lord has a plan for us and our finances - He will provide everything we need. TRUST and FAITH... I may have to write it on post-it notes all over my house so I don't forget.

Where I've Been.... Busy (Part 1)

Time flies in the summer! Maybe more when you have a 3 year old, a full time job, a husband and are pregnant! I can't believe how long it's been since I blogged. What is wrong with me?! I know, exhaustion... :)
So this is what I've been up to....
Over the 4th of July my SIL and nephew came to visit. We had a very busy few days together.

Gabe is the mini me version of my brother. I love him so much! I was so glad we got to spend time with him. He was an angel the entire visit... I miss him.

Chase and all of his cousins. Every one of them. Gabe is his only cousin on my side of the family. Angelica, Madison, Rylee and Scott are Rob's sister's kids. Angelica is 15 going on 25.

We did fireworks in our backyard instead of driving to see them. Chase was scared of the big ones, but did great with the sparklers. Yeah, we are the worlds best parents letting our child hold fire.

We went to this tiny zoo in DE. It was like looking at animals on the sun - I think it must have been 110 degrees that day.

We also made a trip into Philly to the Please Touch Museum. Chase loved it!! He asked when we could go again.

I think Gabe liked it too!!

My brother, Mary Jane and Gabe are going to visit again after Baby T is born. I can't wait to see them all. I miss my brother alot.

Part 2 coming later today or tomorrow.
