The Long Awaited Grill

I am a huge lover of grilled chicken. It is seriously one of my favorite foods. Since we have been married I have wanted a grill but it just hasn't been that high on the priority list. Last weekend we decided it was time to go ahead and get one. We thought it could be an early Father's day and Mother's day gift to us. I was so excited!!! We had our first grilling experience on Monday night and I won't go into details but lets just say, we still have a lot to learn. This was the end result and I enjoyed every bite.

7 months-Entering the 3rd Trimester

We did two shots here so you can get a good look at this growing belly. I feel huge! But I know its not over yet and our baby girl needs to get bigger. I am so happy to make it to my 3rd trimester and I am feeling more and more ready to have Sadie Jane here. We still have a lot to do though so I am glad for these next couple of months.

Sadie Jane's 1st Things

I am behind on my pregnancy pictures. Next week I will be 7 months pregnant so I will make sure to take one of my ever growing belly then. I pretty much just feel huge and have a hard time comprehending that I am only going to keep growing until the end. We are starting to get ready for Sadie Jane's arrival. We have registered, took a childbirth class, and now we are trying to figure out how to create a nursery/guest room for our baby girl. Here's our random beginning on gathering things for Sadie Jane-

1st pic-my mom's friend, Sherlynne, graciously gave us the crib she has used for her grandkids. We picked that up from them last week when we met them in Sacramento.
2nd pic-we saw this Laker's bear and I knew it was a must for daddy's little girl. She will have to be a Laker's fan, it's in the family.
3rd pic-this was all Andrew. We were at Walmart and he saw this and felt the need to get it for Sadie Jane. Of course there was not one that had her name so we bought one with stickers to put it on there. But then after we opened the package we realized we could pay $4 and have one engraved. So that's our plan and we'll figure out a place to put it so she knows she is true Californian.
4th pic-I ordered her bedding a little while ago and love it. Now I just need to get more ideas for how to decorate her room.

Shepherd's Conference

Andrew was only home for a few days after the Master's trip and then hopped on a plane to go back down to Southern California. He went with a group of men from our church to Shepherd's Conference. He had a great time with our group and seeing old friends. He's not a blogger so I had to blog about it for him. For that reason and because I know the other wives out there would like to see some pictures of our husbands at the conference.

Master's Trip

It's been a crazy couple of months! Andrew and I took some of our students down to Master's to check it out. We made the long drive on a Thursday and came back on that Sunday. We now realize that we are really living in northern California! It was a long drive!!! It was fun to show the students around and to be back on the Master's campus.
