What I'm Loving...

I hope everyone is loving this Wednesday as much as I am. Why you ask that this is such a good week... well let me tell you!

I married this good looking man! I am so blessed to have him and being called Mrs. Gable!!!

I am loving that we finally have a name for our sweet baby boy!!! Caleb James Gable! His first name is from the bible and his middle name is from my loving father and one of my favorite people in the world, my grandfather. I just wish he was still around to have met little Caleb James.

I am also loving that we have his nursery room decor decided on. We went with this from Pottery Barn Kids. I can't wait till after the shower and have it all set up!

I am loving that Gable's sister, husband and kids are coming down for the weekend!

I am loving that we might not have to miss our yearly scalloping trip. Our group pushed it back to late August, so Mr. Caleb will only be one month old. Gable and I are going to get our own little place near the group so Caleb doesn’t wake everyone up at night, but we still will be able to hang out with the group a ton. I can’t wait!!!

I am loving these girls! We have been besties since 9th grade, and they are amazing!!!

I am also loving that my dearest friend has been going through IVF. Yesterday the retrieved some of her eggs and will hopefully have a baby very soon. She (keeping her name quite) is such an inspirational person and will truly make the best mommy! Please keep her in your prayers!!!!


The Push Present… need ideas!!!

With my husband’s job he is fully aware of what this is. He has also told one of my closest friends that he has already got it for me. I can’t wait to see what he has picked out!

I know that Gable is going to be an amazing coach during the delivery! He has this gentleness and strength that will help me get through it. So I would like to get him a coach (man’s version of the push present) gift. I just don’t know what I want to get him. He only wears his wedding band, a live strong bracelet, and his watch every day. The boy will NOT wear a necklace or bracelet, so jewelry is out. He loves playing guitar, but a new guitar is out of the price range. I am clueless on what to get him! I could really use some help ladies!!! Price range $50 - $100, think creatively and a little practical.


Stress Relievers…

Working Out.

Everyone has different ways to relieve there stress. Mine is crafting. When I start doing something crafty my mind goes blank of all the chaos in the world, the stress will literally lift off my shoulders. But when Gable and I were living in our tiny condo I could not have it all out. Everything was locked away in our storage unit, just waiting for us to get a house that it could all be organized and used. Although I couldn’t have everything out at once, I would by things that were a great deal, or for the little project I was working on… well that has seemed to bight me in the butt. Last night I started going through everything I had, it was beyond overwhelming to start the “organizing” of everything. Wish me luck!


Weekend Recap - Warrior Dash

This past weekend we drove up to Lake City so Gable could run in the Warrior Dash. Our team dressed in Toga’s and were the only team dresses that way. Where ever they walked you would here people chanting Toga Toga Toga. The weather was horrible for their run of the race; they had harsh rain, thunder and scary lightning. But that didn’t affect our group of manly men and brave ladies. Next year I will be running in the race, and after you see the pictures of them you can just see how much fun they had!

They look so clean in these photo's!

This was the only part of the race we could see.

My very handsome warrior!

Now Chris and Gable are training for the Tough Muder in Tampa. That is what Chris wants to do for his 40th birthday, and Gable can't let a fellow do it alone! That race will make the Warrior Dash look like a walk in the park.

What I'm Loving...

I am loving that my momma's birthday is tomorrow! Cant wait to celebrate with our family.

I am loving that this is a four day work week!!!

I am loving that Saturday is going to be an all day pool day. Now I am just hoping that I can figure out how to tan my back without lying down.

Easter is almost here. Gable and I are going to the Sonrise Service and then it is off to spend the day with family.

Sleep: Using the restroom about 3 times during the night. That is starting to get very annoying and I can’t fall back asleep quickly after that.

Best moment this week: Gable and I laid on the bed for about 30 minutes watching the belly move. It was so weird and amazing all put together.

Looking forward to: Pool Day this Saturday, baby and I are going to soak up some rays!
