things i love about pregnancy

  • actually having an excuse to be out of breath when walking up a flight of stairs. {sad, but true}
  • watching my stomach do the worm.
  • maternity pants. they are the most comfortable things ever. and remember this problem? gone.
  • not having to suck in after a large meal.
  • no monthly visits
  • seeing my body transform. sure i'm bound to get stretch marks & weird veins. not only have i gained some lbs in the abdomen, but also in my legs, arms, and chin. BUT... my body is doing what it's actually made to do. it means my baby is growing.

tannon has always loved doing things with his hands. he's definitely more crafty than i am.

the other day he surprised me with five darling onesie's that he drew.

i'm trying to convince him to open up an etsy shop :)

i have a bucket list. on that bucket list was to visit boston. scratch that off.

we found really cheap tickets and couldn't pass up the opportunity. we had to adjust tannon's school schedule a bit, finagle flight changes, and still weren't sure if we were going to make it on our flight, even the morning of. fortunately, tannon was able to take his test in record time {i hope he passed} and we raced to the airport and made it.

we had such a great time. we got there pretty late on thursday night, so we just walked around by our hotel and ate dinner at maggiono's.

friday, we rented a car and drove the the temple. it was so beautiful and had a great time talking to the temple workers {for like an hour - i think they were lonely}.

after the temple, we drove to cape cod. i loved it here. it was so beautiful. we were able to see the ocean - too bad it was freezing. we ate at a local sports bar and their new england clam chowder was amazing!

saturday was spent walking most of the freedom trail, where we saw paul revere's house, the boston massacre site, the cemetery where john hancock, samuel adams, and the boston massacre victims were buried.

later that day, we made our way to salem, ma. this was such a quiet, quaint little town, i loved it there. we were able to learn more about the salem witch trials and walk around a bit.

after salem, we decided to check out the harvard campus. there were amazing buildings there and the campus was gorgeous.

it was a really short trip, but it was so nice to spend uninterrupted time with tannon. i absolutely loved this old, unique city that is rich with history.
