Pregnancy Announcement Reactions (VIDEO)

Hello blog. Today I am 14 weeks and 2 days pregnant (but it feels like MUCH longer haha) and I’m on day 5 of a week of bedrest. Everything is fine in baby-land! As usual, it’s just me that’s sickly. We did a sonogram just to be sure and they’re blissfully napping and beating their heart, unaware that mommy ain’t feeling so good.

So I thought I’d share a little video with y’all! (more…)

A Tribute to Kathryn Treat – RIP

My voice sounds a little weird because I have a cold at the moment. Please consider making your own little #pour1out4MCS video – it’s easy, fun, and raises awareness for a really good cause. Link to your videos in the comments – who knows? I may turn this into a raffle if enough people jump on board.

Miss you, Kathryn.

Obligatory Dash-Cam Let it Go Sing-a-Long Video

I somehow left this out of my road trip post. No road trip is complete without passionate sing-a-longs. Disclaimer – don’t do it in the pouring rain like I did, haha.

Also, there is such a thing as road trip karma. I remember thinking at the sunny outset of our trip how odd it was that out of the many road trips I’d taken growing up, it had never once rained while we were driving. As you can see, this was rectified. It caused a LOT of traffic. Pair that with the fact that we managed to choose a route that was nothing but construction all the way and we had a lot more driving hours than we planned for.

Interesting point, too – when we were planning this trip months ago, google maps warned us of the construction but we thought they’d surely be done before we left. So it’s worth re-routing, even early in the game, if you notice construction on your route.

One last note: this was the first road trip I’ve ever taken that was almost exclusively through forests. Driving through the mountains was nice, but the trees got monotonous. Part of the reason you do a road trip is to “find America” as Simon and Garfunkle say – but I had a hard time seeing America for the trees. 😉
