I'm back! And with some news...

After a 2 month hiatus, I am back and plan to be back for good.  It probably wasn't the best idea to just completely disappear from the blog world right as I was picking up momentum BUT I like to think that I had a very good excuse.

When I decide to do something I become completely obsessed with it.  I think about it day, night and even in my dreams.  I do a ton of research on the subject and it is all that I seem to talk about in conversations with people who probably don't care.

Well that was exactly what happened in March when I found out some news that would would change my life forever.  It is a personal thing that I have only shared with my immediate family and closest friends.  It's come to a point where I feel it is only right to now share the information with my readers.  Well here it goes...

This next Thanksgiving, I will have something extra to be grateful for because I will not only be the Grounded Wife but the Grounded Mom.  Yes, the pilot and I are having a baby!  LBC (what my in-laws have already started to call the baby, short for "Lil Baby Crabb") will be due the week of Thanksgiving, which is also the same week as the Pilot's 30th birthday.  We are beyond thrilled!

For those of you who are moms, you can understand that during this first trimester I have done everything in my power to keep my eyelids open.  I feel like I have been sleep walking for the past 3 months.  That being said, I had zero energy to come home and do any projects, take photos and write.  The miniscule amount of energy I did have was spent reading up on the gazillion pregnancy books I inherited from my sister-in-law and bought from Goodwill.

I'm excited you finally know and now I can get back in the swing of things and share them all with you.  All of the plans I had in mind for our condo are now accelerated as we prepare to make it a home for 3.5, our dog Milo being the half.

Looking forward to hearing your suggestions on budgeting with a baby, decorating the nursery and any great baby sewing projects you have.  Please share!
