10 on Tuesday

1. I am in LOVE with this bedroom. I love the vintage/ eclectic / handmade style that IS Ashley. And think it fits in closely to what my own true style would be my own. But... I can just hear my husbands disbelief if I said I was going to hang up chicken wire in our house. hahahahahahah

2. A couple of days ago Lucy brought this upstairs to me. Her own recipe she made up. :) i LOVE that she did this!!!!
feb 26 - Her recipe

3. Seriously I don't know how much more winter I can take!!!! I NEED SPRING!!!!!!!!

4. For our dinner club this month, we hosted and our theme (which Regan picked) was the letter R. So I made homemade Ravioli. It was three cheese mushroom filling with a spinach garlic sauce. Super tasty!
feb 26-2 - Homemade Ravioli

5. I finally learned how to curl with my flat iron and Lucy LOVED that her hair was curly. We will be doing this again for SURE!
feb 27- Curly hair

6. I loved having Regan home this past week. We really hung out. And a couple days we looked at houses out in Raymond. It was good.

7. Speaking of houses, I need to sell mine - anyone want to buy it? HA!

8. And speaking of selling our house, I have so much work to do and no energy to do it. I need to deep clean, de junk, pack stuff up and currently I am having trouble keeping up the laundry! Can someone send some energy my way??!

9. We finally told our kids last week and we knew once we did the word would get out. sooooo, we are expecting baby #4. In September. Yes I am totally sick again. Yes I feel horrid, but we are excited to have another kid join our family. Lucy keeps saying that their is no way God would send her another brother. For her sake I hope we do get another little girl. 2 of each would be a perfect way to end our family!

10. I've kind of given up on the 6am posts..... does it matter?

Kristin said...

Way exciting! Pregnant and keeping up on blogging??? You have me beat! Having a husband out of town when you are pregnant is the pits, we both have that i common right now!

Jen Isackson said...

Yay!!!! Well not for being sick but for another baby. I was wondering the other day when you wrote that you hate being pregnant! I'm with you on that one, though this has been much better than the last. Congratulations and good luck getting through the worst beginning stages.

Congrats on Baby #4! So exciting!

And re: the bedroom - gotta agree with Reg about the chicken wire. But I do love the "You & Me" she hung up on the wall and all the photos!

Lora said...

Congrats again on baby #4, I hope Lucy gets her baby sister. Beautiful picture of Lucy!

Shelley said...

Congrats Rhonda and Regan! And just plan on a boy until proven otherwise. Summer is sisterless too, but she wouldn't trade in her baby Luke for the world :)
Love the pics you took of Whitney and Oscar - they're beautiful!

Tanya and Colin said...

Congrats on baby! I hope Lucy gets a sister! And hope that you start to feel better soon. Good luck on selling your house; I can totally relate! We have been trying to sell our for months. It is not easy to keep things up and be prego!

LindsayB said...

Tisha said...

Congrats on the baby! If anyone happens to send you extra energy, feel free to send a little my way!!

whitney said...

I hope Lucy has better luck than Roman in getting what he wanted. He loves his brother now, but for four months all we heard in his prayers was "Jesus I don't know why you are giving us a boy"

Karen said...

Congratulations! Hope you feel better soon :)

Stacy said...

Congrats on the baby!! I hope you feel better really soon. And I loved the picture of Lucy's hair--so cute!

me said...

Congrats on #4! How exciting! I'm sorry you're feeling crappy! Seriously, being pregnant is brutal isn't it? Ugh. Hang in there!!!

Laura Beth said...

Totally did not expect that! So excited for another baby. I will make my prediction too. I'm not sure yet but I am usually right on once I figure it out.

Ummm, teach me how to do the hair? Maybe w ecan skype and you can show me? hahaha I am SOOO bad with my flat iron

Alysha said...

Isn't the flat iron awesome!! I love that the girls can have straight OR curly hair and I don't have to have more then one iron.

and CONGRATS!! That's sooo exciting. I hope you feel better really soon.

Let the party begin... said...

Congratulations on your baby news! How exciting. I love the bedroom, it is sooooo personal. I thought Darren and I were the only ones who painted the plywood on our floors, lol! I hope you find the energy to sell your house.

maria lang said...

Kathleen Boland said...

Congratulations...again. Nope, 6am is a myth. Ravioli...yummy.
I'd come visit and help you if you were closer!

KellyLady said...

Congrats! Hope you feel better and get some energy soon! Oscar's pictures are darling and so is Lucy's hair. Good luck getting your house ready to sell :)

AshleyAnn said...

Congratulations! Thanks for the sweet words about my bedroom...and that ravioli looks so good~

Carlye said...

I can totally see Regan going for the chicken wire... bahaha!

Congrats again on the pregnancy! Hopefully the blegh feeling doesn't last the whole 9 months this time ;)

And I LOVE Lucy's recipe. I think it's awesome when kids spell everything phonetically... makes way more sense than the way we actually spell words!

Christal said...

Congrats! So exciting! Now you just need come be my neighbor and if Lucy gets another brother her and Lauren can be sad together but really they aren't sad for long when they meet that little one whichever way it goes! Happy for you guys!

Lisa C said...

yay, congratulations!

Lisha said...

Congrats! That's so awesome. Sending energy vibes your way!

this and that...now and then said...

what I want to know is how you cook ravioli when you are so sick!!! I couldn't even make a sandwich without gagging. Love your blog. Sometime when you are out here in Raytown, could you show me a few things to make my blog better? It's pretty pathetic looking. Check er out-

Crystal said...

Congratulations!!! I pray that your little one will grow perfectly, just the way God has it planned, and that you will have energy for the weeks ahead. You are a busy mama and you need to rest a bit. Your kids are going to love having a baby in the house :) So happy for you, Rhonda!

Crystal said...

And homemade ravioli! I'm sure it was delish. Was it alot of work? I'm intimidated by making pasta - too much like pie dough for my liking!

Anonymous said...

Congrats on the pregnancy, Rhonda!! I can't even imagine having four kids...2 is enough for me!!! Hope you start feeling better soon.

Kinsey said...

Congrats Rhonda! You are amazing!

Heather M. said...

so happy for you! congrats and hoping you feel better soon. love that pic of Lucy - so cute!

Catherine Dabels said...

I knew it!!!! Very exciting. Congrats all over the place. I am just catching up on my blog reading since I've been away. It seems like timing is everything right? You've waited for this baby and you can have it BUT you also have to pack and move and do things that require tons of energy and stay power. Good luck to you. This is an exciting time in your life!

Connie Nichol said...

wow, congratulations Rhonda!!! So happy for you!!! But so sorry you are so sick when you are pregnant..... really takes the fun out of it. :-( Hope the nausea passes soon and you feel better.
