Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

5 Jan

Just working at Daddy’s office

New Year’s Eve wasn’t very exciting for us. This was the excitement of my nights, poppin’ Sparkling Cider with my crew at work!

Delicious πŸ™‚

The Preggo is getting crazy!

My little fashionista πŸ™‚

We got A LOT done in the birthday party planning department this week. This photo inspired some of her cupcakes. I am getting them from Sweet by Good Golly Miss Holly.… best. cupcakes. ever.

Can’t wait to see how they turn out!

My UCF Knights won the 2014 Fiesta Bowl!!!!! I couldn’t be more proud πŸ™‚

They have come a long way since I went to school! Go Knights!

Sneak Peak of Kyler’s birthday party πŸ™‚

This little one visited me at work again. I could get used to that!

That’s my week. We are in full party planning mode! I am also starting to redirect my attention to Hudson’s room so I am excited to get into that over the next couple of months. This week I have my glucose test (yuck) but I am anxious to get back to the doctor and see how he’s growing. Last time I was measuring ahead by 2.5 weeks but I think I may be all caught up now. We will see! I will officially be in my 3rd trimester on Friday too. Less than 3 months to go! Ahhhh!!!

Hello 2014!

1 Jan

Happy New Year’s!!! I can’t believe 2013 has come and gone and we are already in 2014. I re-read what I wrote back in 2013 and laughed. I had 2 big things to accomplish and I can say that I really didn’t do that at all!

  • Working out: Β That went well in the Spring and Summer but then I got pregnant and that went out the window. I had big plans this time around to workout through my pregnancy and I just could not do it. I FEEL every ache and pain this time around and sometimes walking too much makes me unable to really move around for a day or 2. But with that said, my job keeps me fit. I walk anywhere from 3-10 miles a day so at least I have that!
  • Make more time for us: Well we sort of did that. We never did get a baby sitter (can’t seem to stomach paying over $100 just for dinner and a movie out of the house) but that doesn’t mean things didn’t change. I think Kyler being older helped A LOT. Looking back, when they are so little and need every waking second of your time, you can’t help but feel that is all your life is about. But now that Kyler is older and her own little person, we have really had more time to feel back to normal. Now adding a 2nd little kiddo to the mix should make things interesting but we are more than excited and ready for the change!

2013 was an interesting year for me. If I had to rate it, it wasn’t one of my best years. 2012 was a high for us; just getting settled into our new home & bringing Kyler in the world. 2013 definitely had its ups and downs. It has been so much fun watching Kyler grow so that has been the highlight. The hardest thing I have had to deal with is losing my brother Craig back in February. Here we are 10 months later and it is something I think about constantly. It’s been rough.

I am really looking forward to 2014. I am ready to meet our new son, Hudson, who is due April 4th. I am ready to see what work has to bring. I am ready to see where I can take this blog. I am ready for it all! Kyler will be turning 2 in a couple of weeks, I will be 28 in May (sigh) and Chris will be hitting his mid-30s at 35 in August. Where is the time going?!?!

Happy 2014!!!
