Ever since I moved back to Del Ray (almost 3 years ago), I have always wanted to go to the MV Big Flea that occurs annually this time of year. The MV Big Flea is a large fundraiser that benefits the Mount Vernon Community School PTA, in Del Ray, Virginia. However, up until this year I have been either busy or out of town. [Read more…]

Hope you are enjoying your Tuesday so far! My morning began with a barre class so it feels good to have my workout out of the way for the day. 🙂 [Read more…]
I am pleased to say that Tommy and I are probably 90% moved in to our new home. I still have 5-6 boxes I need to go through in the guest room and we still have a few shelves, pictures, and paintings to hang up on the walls, but it’s slowly coming together!

Hello folks! I’m officially half way through my pregnancy with Luke. (Where did time go?!) Over the weekend, I hit the 20 week mark and yesterday Tommy and I had our 20-week appointment with our doctor.

Two takeaways – big head and strong heartbeat!
Things are beginning to get and feel real, and I’m starting to feel like we have so much still to do in the few months we have until our Little Mister makes his debut.
One decision we have settled on is the general theme for Luke’s nursery. [Read more…]
