Fence is up! Thanks to my family

The past few days have been pretty crazy.

The baby arrived on Friday morning! I just can’t describe how excited I am to have this little fella here. I wish I could share everything with you guys. Lets just say he is adorable!

Also, Andrew has been a great helper. I am so glad he such a good listener. Especially when we went to listen to live music at the St Louis zoo. I didn’t take many pictures (the baby is a handful) but we did get this one!

Friday night was a little restless, just because every time the baby moved, I woke up. Hopefully tonight I am more used to his bed being next to mine

Saturday morning started nice and early! The baby and I got up early and did laundry, had breakfast, and lots of coffee (for me). It was great to wake up to a smiley baby 🙂

And this is why we were up early…..


I can not tell you how appreciative I am of ALL my family coming over and helping put up the fence

We did have a few rain falls throughout the day, and they just kept trucking through

the results are AMAZING

9 hours later. geez.

After two days of nonstop with the baby, Andrew, and the fence (on top of andrews baseball game, trips to homedepot, etc etc) I need a bit of a break. Time for bed!

Question for you:

What do you do when you first wake up?

What I Ate Wednesday: Cardinals game

I completely forgot, got insanely busy, and didn’t eat much or anything exciting (until dinner!)

Breakfast: Same o’ eggs and bacon


Lunch: salad, with lots of extra candied pecans


(only had a few bites. had to get out of my house after the bug guys fogged my house. )
