What I'm Loving Wednesday

It's that time of the week again!  I really am starting to really look forward to doing this post.  I think it's a great way to pause and think of some things that are POSITIVE in your life!  Feel free to play along and link up with Jamie at This Kind of Love!

I'm loving that we finally announced to the "public" that we're expecting another baby in our house!  It's been quite an eventful couple of weeks with this whole process (post coming SOON), but I'm just so happy to have it out there in the open!  Prayers for our little bean are greatly welcome!

I'm loving that I only have 7 more days of school!  Oh my goodness!  That is such a wonderful number!  My kids at school are absolutely CRAZY, so hopefully these 7 days will go by quickly.  I'm so looking forward to this summer break!

I'm loving that LL is over her strep throat.  We took her in last Thursday evening because she spiked a 103 fever very suddenly.   We were totally expecting an ear infection and were very surprised when they said strep throat!  Luckily, we caught it early and she never got super super bad and is back to her normal, happy self!

I'm loving that we took last weekend to do nothing but stay at home (and spend a lot of time celebrating my birthday!).  We have been SO BUSY lately that it was wonderfully nice to just spend a weekend at home as a family, staying in our pajamas, reading books, playing games, cuddling, watching movies, celebrating, and doing a little cleaning.  It really restored me!

I'm loving that, so far, I've had only teeny tiny bouts of nausea.  With LL I was EXTREMELY sick in my first trimester, so I'm hoping to skip over that part completely with this pregnancy.  There's a big chance that I'm just not far enough along to be sick yet, but I'm keeping hope alive that it won't happen at all.

I'm loving that after what seems like forever, Matt and I FINALLY have iPhones!  My Blackberry was slowly dying more and more each day, so I am SO happy to be rid of it.  So far we are absolutely LOVING our iPhones!

I'm loving that I know SO MANY people who are pregnant with me right now!  I make the third teacher on my 6th grade hall who is pregnant (one is my special ed teacher who teaches with me, and the other is the ESOL teacher right across the hall from me - I guess we all just drank the same water??).  There are several girls in my life group that are pregnant - I think I make the third there, also?  My tbff Emily is pregnant - I think I make the third pregnancy for Aflac, too??  AND one of Matt's best friends just moved from Texas to Perry, GA right after Christmas and his wife just found out recently that she is pregnant!  Woah!  Lots of babies will be born around November/December!

What are YOU loving this week?

Congrats on expecting another baby!!!! I currently have a blackberry. It does alright most of the time. The thing that bugs me the most is that sometimes it will start blinking for no reason, so I have to restart it and then it's fine.

Congrats on the baby! How exciting! Weekends at home really are the best thing, like you said, they're great for rejuvenating.
Love the iPhone! I've been hinting towards the hubby about getting one, guess we'll see! :)

Hi! New follower here! Your blog grabbed my eye for a few reasons.

1. The name...Life, Love, and Lorelai. My blogs name is Life, Love and Leyla Quinn.
2. Your little lady is pretty close in age to my daughter so, it's fun to see blogs about kiddos around the same age.
3. The name Lorelai, when my hubby and I were recently talking about having another child Lorelai was the name that we loved!

So, lots in common...looking forward to following you!
