Update.. weight -loss, etc

I took a little time away from my blog..  So, I just wanted to update that I haven't lost any more weight!  I have actually gained about 3 lbs.  About a month ago I was very tired and just feeling run down!  I had no idea what was going on.  I just thought it was from staying so busy.. planning my daughter's 4th birthday party.  I would rest and wake up tired!  Finally I decided to take a test.. a pregnancy test.. and the results were POSITIVE!
I honestly had no idea!  I screamed so loud when I found out!  Amazing!  My husband came running back, he thought something was wrong with me..  I was crying and told him to look @ the test!!! 

We decided we would keep it a secret until our daughter's birthday party..  Then we would tell the family.  I ordered a cute little shirt for my daughter that said "Big Sister".  At the party when she opened her gifts, she pulled out the shirt and it took a few minutes for everyone to see it and understand! LOL  Then everyone started screaming and hugging me and crying/ screaming some more!  It was awesome!
We have been trying for sometime to have another little one and we are so blessed to be pregnant!

I had to take a break from the blog due to morning sickness and nausea..  I couldn't even think about food..  So I am finally feeling a little bit better and I AM BACK!!!!  I have missed posting and talking to you all!!  HUGS!!
