New car!

About a month ago we realized the air was out in my car and that to fix it would cost well over $1000. My car had 150,000 miles and was 9 years old. It wasn't worth but about $2000 on KBB. We had already planned on buying new this fall, so it got pushed up a few months. Both of our cars are paid off and I was not looking forward to a car payment. We weren't quite prepared, but considering I'm pregnant and hot I need air conditioning!

We've been looking since we found out what it would cost to fix my Hyundai and actually just stumbled upon the car we bought. We were headed to the movie theater for a date night and ended up buying a car instead!

We ended up with a dodge journey. I am SO glad we found it because it's fairly new, seriously low mileage and we got a great deal. It has a third row seat and the styrofoam wrap hasn't even been taken off the seatbelt buckles. It's like new.

And it has a bunch of fun random features. Two of my favorites are the storage in the passenger seat and the backseat view mirror.

Tyler got a kick out of this picture I sent him because this really is a mom mobile. Haha!

I'll miss my little Hyundai, but I sure am glad we found a great car for our growing family! My brother put this sticker in years ago and before I left the lot, I told my old car that Jesus would always love it. ;)

Pregnancy update. :)

Thanks so much for all of your kind comments! Between here, twitter and Facebook my heart was just overflowing! I don't know how consistent I will be with this, but wanted to put a few things down to remind myself of this time!

How far along? 17 weeks, 2 days
Total weight gain/loss? I have lost 19, but 11 of those were from weeks 6-8, so I've lost 8 by doctor's count. I've finally stopped losing though!
Maternity clothes? Just pants.
Stretch marks? Not yet.
Sleep? Not so great. I'm a light sleeper and every time I wake up to use the potty I'm awake for at least 30 minutes after. But I'm no longer going to bed at 7 pm! Yay for 2nd trimester energy!
Mood? Well? This week I feel semi normal. But I've cried over girl scout cookies and Tyler not being home in time to go eat Mexican. Which he totally was, it was just later than I wanted. We still ate mexican.
Best moment last week? Seeing Baby at an ultrasound. My sister in law has a sweet friend who volunteered to let us peek! He/she is a busy little thing!
Movement? I kind of think I my have felt the babe last week, but I'm not convinced.
Food cravings? Not constant, but I've had a dire need for fresh squeezed lemonade so much so that we bought a citrus juicer. I've also wanted coke icees from burger king, chips and salsa and an orange roll from a restaurant in NWA! A sweet twitter friend helped with the last one! Thanks Taylor!
Gender? We'll know next month
Labor signs? Umm. No.
Belly button in/out? In.
What I miss: dairy and strawberries. I've developed an intolerance of both and it's sad.
What I am looking forward to: Our next ultrasound! 3 weeks!
Milestones: none that I can think of right now, just growing and getting stronger!

Guess What?

Please ignore my dolphin like laugh. I get it from my mama. ;)

"Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him." Psalm 127:3

PS the video loaded funny on my blog and I don't feel like figuring out why right now, but, in case you can't see it either, the last frame says Baby Richmond is coming September 21, 2012! Thank you for praying!
