off to nashville!

we're off to nashville for the weekend!
my older sister is getting married on saturday
so we're flying out today to make it home in time
for all of the festivities.

i can't remember the last time i was this excited.
i mean,
i get to walk at radnor lake!
and crunch leaves beneath my boots!
and spend time with all of my family!
and see my sister get married!
and get my belly rubbed by so many people!
and eat good food!
the list goes on.

the best part?
the high on saturday is only 55 degrees.
AUTUMN you guys.
i get my autumn after all.

see ya, 90 degree florida.
you won't be missed.

28 weeks

now that i'm in my third trimester
i get to meet with my midwives every 2 weeks to check on baby girl.
i can honestly say it's the number one thing i look forward to.

i love the birthing center we're using
and it's so nice to sit and talk with my midwife for an hour 
and get my belly measured
and hear baby girl's heartbeat.
she's right on track
and even has her head down
ready to go.
she's a rockstar already.

every day i get more and more excited to see her tiny face
and kiss her little fingers.
part of me still can't believe this is real-
that it's happening.

but it is real
and it is happening.
and i am so excited.

happy friday!

i have the day off
so i've been lying in bed all morning
daydreaming about falling leaves 
cool weather
and camping.
my heart is aching!

we're going to a "pumpkin patch" tomorrow...
or as close to a pumpkin patch as you can get here in florida.
but i'm still excited.
it will at least hold me over until next weekend 
when i'm in nashville and can experience autumn for real!

have a lovely weekend!

a little house tour

nesting has kicked in
and i kind of love it. 
this house has never been cleaner.

i decided to take some photos around our little home the other day
since there's no telling how long it will stay this way.

a little dinner party

tonight we're having my friend and her husband over
for an autumn themed dinner/hang out
(yes, you read that right...i made a friend!!!)

i'm super pumped.
they're bringing a pizza 
we're making an appetizer
and we're having halloween treats for dessert.
we'll end the night by watching the village
or it's the great pumpkin charlie brown's such a hard decision.
they're both so good!

as you know i've been crazy homesick since i left nashville
so it's nice to have a good friend here now
to make me feel more at home in florida.

happy friday!!!

26 weeks and feelin awesome.

last night i took bennett to see andrew bird perform.
it was my birthday gift to him.
andrew is un-freakin-believeable live.
if you ever have the chance to see him
you must go.
it will blow your mind.

baby girl was loving every second of it.
she didn't stop moving the entire time.
i can't wait to tell her about her first concert
when she was still in my belly
and how she danced the night away.

also my belly is getting huge.
i freaking love it.
so does bennett.
life is good.

a better friend
or a better father for this tiny baby girl.

i love you, b.
happy birthday!

dear autumn, 
i miss you.
i miss the the smell of your leaves
and your cool crisp air on my neck.
if you feel like it,
you could come visit me in florida.
just sayin'.
