Saving Money

I can't believe it is almost April and June will be here before we know it! The pregnancy has gone by so fast but I'm beginning to think these lase few months will drag on while I am getting more uncomfrotable. I've always wanted to be a stay at home mom to my kids and I know I will have the opportunity to do that this year while we are in Duncan. But I have been thinking about it a lot and worrying some. I know we will have to make sacrifices and put our trust in God! We will be eating at home A LOT while in Duncan, we are thinking we won't have cable, we are not buying a bigger car and will not have any car payments, we won't have much entertainment in I hope and pray we will use our money wisely so that I can stay home. If anyone has any suggestions on saving money feel free to let me know what you do! Any advice would help. Have a good weekend and stay warm with this yucky weather.

Overly Blessed

This has been the best week for me! I am feeling great, but that will shortly end once I have to go back to work on Monday. We had our church baby shower last Sunday and I am amazed at the generosity of everyone! Our baby girl got so many nice things! My parents and Casey's were able to come and it was nice to see them. I am finally feeling and seeing our baby girl move A LOT! The reason I haven't been so much was because my placenta is in the front and blocking some of her movement. She is definitely getting bigger and stronger. She is currently listening to some lullaby music and enjoying it I think. We have finally decided on a name but you have to wait until we have her! It's a surprise! Casey and I were able to go to Duncan yesterday and look at our duplex we will be living in. Ours is still being built so we saw a model one and they are beautiful!!! Since we've been married our living arrangements haven't been the greatest. I'm not complaining though, just not the best. Well, this duplex is beautiful!!! We are going to get spoiled and never want to leave. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2 car garage, fenced in yard...I could go on more we are just so excited! Casey deserves it after all the work he has done. Well, I'm off to organize a few things. Enjoy the weekend! Look for pictures to come soon from this past week.
