Our Greatest Adventure Yet

 We’ve been a little quiet and haven’t been so adventurous lately and I figured I should finally update as to why! At the end of September I had been super nauseous, so on October 1st I had Dave run to the store to get me a pregnancy test, and some ginger ale and Altoids (those things save my life!). The next morning I took the test, thinking it would certainly be negative, but it turned positive instantly! I was so shocked! It was so hard waiting for Dave to come home from work to tell him the exciting news! I put the test in a cake pan with tin foil over it, and when he got home from work I told him I had made him a surprise. He said he definitely wasn’t expecting it and was really surprised!

Since I wasn’t quite sure how far along I was since my cycles are a bit irregular, and since I have had a few miscarriages in the past, I made an appointment with my OB right away and was able to go in on the 8th. They were thinking that I may be around 6 or 7 weeks based on my cycle, but they could only see the gestational sac and the yolk sac, but no baby yet. It was really hard to not know for sure if it was going to be a viable pregnancy or not and just having to wait for the next appointment.

 

Dia de los Muertos

 On November 1st we forced ourselves out the house to celebrate Dia de los Muertos at my favorite place, the Historic Pearl! We’ve always missed the celebrations in previous years, so I was so glad to join in the festivities this year! I love the rich Hispanic culture in San Antonio so much! It was honestly magical! Celebrations only lasted two days, but put this on your calendar for next year! Don’t miss this magical event, SA friends!!

September 2019

 September was such a fun final month of the summer. We enjoyed lots of trips to the lake, soaking up every last bit of sun! 

1 Second Every Day

 I hate to be that person, but I can't believe we are already halfway through the year. I meant to post this at the beginning of July but the month has already started to get away from me. This year has held it's fair share of ups and downs. It's flown by, but at the same time, seemed have dragged by. We don't have any major trips planned for the year. That's a first for us. But I am grateful we still find a way to find a little adventure each week, each month, even if we are just exploring our own neck of the woods. We are firm believers in being tourists in your own town, and thankfully Texas is huge and we have only begun to scratch the surface!
