Pregnancy is...

Throwing up driving on the freeway
Feeling baby kick late at night
Craigslist shopping for baby items
Chocolate soymilk every morning
Never-ending migraines
Online maternity shopping addiction
Hearing the miracle of a tiny heartbeat
Mexican food always
Citrus fruits in the winter (thank goodness we live in California!)
Lots and lots of naps
Packing away clothes that don't fit :(
Watching all seasons of Downton Abbey
Prenatal pilates
Singing primary songs to baby
Sweet blessings from Mike
Reading about baby's new developments
Sitting in my rocking chair
Detailed dreams of baby
Back aches and pains

Despite the pains and sickness and blood draws (why do they take so much?!), this little miracle inside of me makes me so incredibly happy. Nearly halfway now, September is coming quick and we couldn't be more excited! Just counting down the minutes til the gender reveal ultrasound tomorrow, yipee!

The new year has started busier than ever. {I guess that's the nature of the finance industry} Feeling overwhelmed & exhausted has been me the past few weeks.

However, I truly believe that if you set goals & stay focused, no matter how busy life gets, you can accomplish whatever you set your mind to.

I have set some exciting goals this new year - here's to conquering 2013.

I know I have a lot of catching up to do...but first let's hear it for the Giants! We have been loving Orange October this year. We got lucky to get tix to a couple of the NLCS games. So much fun!

Tonight we watched the game at home with a bunch of friends, and then went out to celebrate with the fans in SF. We rode our scooter all around town - lots of cheering, honking, screaming, chanting, etc. Incredible night - SWEEP!

{warning: lots of pictures...we love our giants!}
