So let me share some things I am currently loving!!
Crossfit Mom now that I am 7+ months pregnant workouts are different. There is no way around it, as much as I adore crossfit I hate going in to see that the wod is something that I physically cannot do. (handstand pushups anyone? I loved them pre-pregnancy they just aren't gonna happen these days!) Anyway I found this site and I am in love! Workouts, crossfit workouts catered to people like me! So even though my trainers will alter the wod for me I now have an endless resource of wods I feel comfortable doing at home!

Soo this year we went on a little trip with Mike's family, his mom & stepdad, two brothers, his pregnant sister in law, and three nieces/nephews under the age of two. Did I mention we were all in a 15 passenger van? You can read about that here and here.
We also took a trip to Bermuda in February, which I don't think I ever finished uploading pictures from. Whoops. (at least I have another weekend topic haha!) Here is one of my favorite spots.
Last fall we went to see my brother! He lives on the west coast of Canada. We rented a Fiat to drive from Seattle to Victoria to meet my baby niece! More here, here, here and here.

Another struggle we have is with this girl. Our sweet Sophie dog who turned 14 in March.
She's getting older and it is positively the hardest thing to watch.
Recently when I made us pancakes for brunch she saw me get the griddle out got so excited but then left the kitchen to lay down in the other room. Once the food was ready she came out saw us sit down looked at us and went back to the other room. This is the dog that normally is panting, begging and barking while I'm still making them. (Yes I spoiled her from when I got her when I was 13 she knows what pancakes are) The kitchen floor is just to slippery for her, so she left the room rather than falling and not being able to get up. I quickly grabbed a dog bed from another room and brought it into the kitchen so she could lay on it and be part of the family. We now have dog beds in every room because we know she can get up from them. The hard wood floors are just too slippery and when your hips are weak it makes it hard.
The last two nights she hasn't come to sleep in our room, heartbreaking but after months of forcing her to come to bed, she is just happier in the other room. Our other lab Jake doesn't know really how to handle it. He waited for her to come in the room, even sleeping on the corner of his bed so they could share. (He is needy and cannot sleep alone even though we have two huge dog beds in our bedroom) This morning when I got up he had gone to the other room to sleep with her. I'm not sure what he is going to do without her. They are best friends, he can't even go outside and pee without her.
No one wants to watch their dog get old and I am worried how it will be with a newborn and an old dog.
My first girls.

In an effort to keep up with blogging everyday in May I thought I would share a few prayer requests!
Mike & I meet with some pretty important people this week regarding the business and the direction we plan to take. We are leaving this situation in God's hands.
For scholarships for next semester to come through.
For our friends who are in the midst of what seems like the longest adoption process ever. It is so hard to wait and they just want their son home! Pray for the proper people to see and approve the needed paperwork.
For our sweet girl to keep growing big, strong & healthy. (And for Laura's baby too!)
And that we would be bold in our faith.
Hope you all are having a great weekend!!
