MIA for a little while

We have no internet and may not for a little while, so I am out of commission until further notice. We are moving soon (hopefully this week! :) ) and I packed away all of my art stuff, so there will also be no new paintings for a while.

Baby update: My belly is getting big and this little guy is a mover!

Back to reality...

I feel like the last several weeks have been so stinking busy, but really it's been just one thing that has taken over my life. It just finished last night and I suddenly have time to worry about other things! I will have no problem finding ways to fill the time I have been spending, what with school, work, baby, moving, church... there's always something to keep me busy. Perhaps I can get back to participating in the Different Strokes challenge. There's a great reference photo up right now that I'd love to paint, but I don't know if I'll get to it in time to post. We'll see.

I wanted to say Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers in my life! My own wonderful mom deserves way way more thanks and appreciation than I can give. I hope she knows how much I love her. My mother-in-law deserves a big hug too! There are so many women around me who I hope to be able to emulate when I am, myself a mother. Thanks to all for the wonderful examples!

My awesome husband is seriously one of the most thoughtful people I've ever met and I'm so lucky that he is mine! He is always there to support me in all my adventures- thanks again for your help with the fundraiser, Mike :) - he is unselfish and always trying to do things for me and for our family to be. He is really really busy, too, by the way, but always finds time to make me feel special. I love my Mikey Doo!

My youngest sister, Kambree, just had her beautiful baby girl this week- Cinco de Mayo. Congrats, Kam and Kev, and Happy birthday baby Kinlee.

And, since I'm all over the place anyway with this post I'll give you an idea of my own baby belly situation. I feel like I've completely popped in the past few weeks, so this picture is a little outdated, but it's the only one I have. Pardon my t shirt and lounge pants- I was just on my way to the gym. This was taken 3 weeks ago at 20 weeks:

Okay, I think that's all I have for you today.
