Top 2 Tuesday...Deserted Island

Taylor over at Undomestic Momma hosts Top 2 Tuesday every week and I thought that this week I'd participate, yay!

The topic this week is Top 2 Things (not people) you would take to a deserted island!

1. First and foremost, I would for sure be taking some of this without a doubt:

Well, not necessarily Louis Vuitton toilet paper...but some sort of toilet paper for sure! You see friends...I am not now nor have I ever been a girl that likes to camp. The idea of "roughing it" in the woods is just not something that appeals to me at all!

While the idea of camping is ok I just cannot get past the fact that it most times involves sleeping outside with BUGS! I've excepted it about myself...I would've never even made it with Troop Beverly Hills!

2. Secondly, I would take...

I would also take my cell phone and I would pray, pray, pray that it would work on the particular island that I was stranded on! After all, I have to have some sort of communication with someone not stranded with me to get me off the island. I am not confident that I would be able to build a fire by rubbing two sticks together, ha! Maybe I should've considered bringing some matches for the fire/smoke signal...

Head on over to Taylor's blog and play along too! What would you take to a deserted island???

Happy Tuesday Girlies!

20 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 20 weeks...I can't believe that I am halfway through! I feel like these first 20 weeks have gone by so fast!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: At my last doctor's visit still NO weight gain, but I am sure that will change when I see the doctor on Friday! I feel like I have "grown" a bunch in the last two weeks for sure!
How Big is the Baby: The size of a cantaloupe
Gender: We are 98.9% percent sure that it is a BOY, but there will be no doubt about it on Friday at my next doctors appointment!

Maternity Clothes: I have been wearing non-maternity dresses and gaucho type pants, but have definitely invested in some maternity shirts. All my pre-preggers shirts are too short now!

Best Moment of the Week: This will definitely be finding out for sure that we are having a little boy on Friday! I am ready to start doing some planning/decorating.

Stretch Marks: Negative

Movement: NONE YET, ugh! Everyone keeps asking, but so out of the ordinary feelings in the tummy region.

Sleep: Sleeping fine, but it's still sometimes it's tricky getting comfortable.

What I miss: I get SO hot SO fast! Pre-preggers I was always super tolerable of the heat, but since I've been preggers I feel like I get hot SO quickly!

What I am looking forward to: Finding out FOR SURE {without a single doubt} what gender the baby is at the end of the week...yippie!

Symptoms: I still get heartburn from pretty much anything...even water! Other than that I feel super fantastic!

Food Cravings: I have been craving salad and sandwiches like crazy! I don't necessarily think that it is specifically anything about them other than they just seem light to me. I am not into anything super heavy sounding at the moment!

Belly Button: Still an Inny

Signs of Labor: Thankfully, no!
I hope that everyone is having a fabulous Monday!

Exciting News...Drumroll Please!

I am so super excited to announce that my handsome hubby and I are expecting a bouncing...


We found out at my 16.5 week ultrasound, so Dr. Nilson was super confident that it was in fact true...I am going to be a BOY MOM! I can't even begin to tell you how immensly blessed that we feel...we are both so super excited!

Since I had a girl name already picked out {like 8 years ago} I told Billy that he could pick our boy name. We decided that we would make the name a mutual decision, but I really wanted him to come up with some name suggestions that he really liked. We are 98% sure of our little boy's name, but I want to be 100% sure before we make the big announcement.

I am 19 weeks today and will be posting my bump picture tomorrow. I have still not felt the baby move yet, but I am super excited and feel like I am constantly waiting on the moment to come that I "feel" something! I read something that mentioned that the heartbeat takes longer to feel with your first pregnancy since you just don't know what to expect. I wish that he would move already...I am so ready to know what it feels like!

I hope that you girlies are having a super great Monday!
