Autumn Spice

27 Oct

My weekend was… beautiful.  We spent Saturday getting some more unpacking/organizing done in the house.  It is just set up so differently from the apartment we were in, so we’re having a hard time figuring out where everything should go.  I think this coming weekend we will hang our pictures and be almost done with the house set up.

On Saturday night some good friends came over for dinner and a movie.  We got dinner from the grocery store and bought a movie from Walmart that we had wanted to see.  It was great, super relaxed, and cost us a lot less money than going out would have.  It was nice to see that we can have a great evening without spending a ton, especially since we are in super pay-off-debt/save-for-baby mode now.

Sunday we slept in, watched Iron Man (which we thought was pretty good) and ran a couple of errands.  The whole weekend was so laid back, it was great.  The weather was absolutely perfect, and it was beautiful to see all of the changing leaves as we drove into and back out of town.

This Saturday marked week twelve of this pregnancy too, the final week of the first trimester.  With every new day I feel a little bit more positive, more excited for this new life.  That doesn’t mean I don’t have hard days, and I certainly still get extra worried when something seems to be less than perfect, but overall I am really starting to enjoy this little life, this massive potential growing like a weed every week.  In just twelve weeks, we have gone from an indistinguishable clump of cells to a tiny but nearly perfect little person.

I can’t wait to see what the coming weeks will bring.
