Black Butte

We kicked off August with a wedding at Black Butte Ranch in Oregon – SO GORGEOUS. I can see why families have come here for years and how it can hold a special place in ones heart, it’s just a beautiful, serene place where anyone can relax. Maybe my former non-pregnant self wouldn’t be so enthralled with all of the kids running around, it’s definitely a family-friendly resort…not very “spring break” if you know what I mean.

We had some seriously hot weather while we were there, mother nature could have taken it down 20 degrees or so…but luckily, there were several pools to lay by and do absolutely nothing…Plus stunning views everywhere you turned.

On to some pregnancy notes:

I’ve been feeling pretty good these days. The kicks have become more frequent and with every passing day things are becoming more real. I’m hoping I don’t have to add a section for “stupid things people say to me” because one doozy has already happened…a random stranger at a wedding saying to me “You must be due any day now!” Really, lady? Nope – not even close – but thanks for assuming. I took my first bump photo after to convince myself that no, I am not due ANY DAY:


I also thought it would be fun to note my current Cravings:

  • Caprese Salads
  • Wendy’s Frosties
  • Anything with Marinara Sauce
  • Taco del Mar Fish Tacos (and their chips and queso…anything with queso)
  • Bagels
  • Smoothies

Oh, and P.S. – we are having a girl! Otto will have a little sister!
