  A couple Saturdays ago, Ben and I were lounging around watching Raiders of the Last Ark when our baby boy started kicking.  Ben got to feel him kick for the first time and it was a really special moment for the three of us.  Ben thinks it is pretty bad ass that it happened during Raiders of the Last Ark.  Since then, he has been kicking and moving non-stop and we love it. Lately I have been feeling great and really enjoying this part of my pregnancy.  Feeling my baby move inside...

About a month ago, Ben and I went to Atlanta on a mini-vacation to visit our friends the Kesters.   Ben made us a mixed cd for the trip.  He is so thoughtful and sweet.  Ben even decorated the cd! Oh and I just figured out how to actually add the songs below!  (Someone is moving up in the blog world.)

Last week for True Blood Sunday, Ben and I decided to use 1/2 of a left over watermelon from our garden and 1/2 of a watermelon our friend gave us to make watermelon cocktails.  My mother in law emailed me a couple of recipes that she cut out of magazines (probably Southern Living).  Ben looked over the recipes and decided to put his own twist on them.  I am so glad that he did because his watermelon margaritas are my new favorite cocktail.

Link to The Wood Paneling Debate

Since moving into our 1940's cottage style home, Ben and I have always disagreed about our living room's wood paneling.  We have that "real" wood paneling that I believe is knotty pine, that a previous owner thought was really fancy and had it installed in both the living room and one of our bedrooms.  Ben loves it and thinks it is really fun and vintage.  I hate it and how dark it makes our living room.  I seriously want to paint over it and Ben hates that...

Earlier this week, Ben and I decided to see how our potatoes are doing since a couple of them are blooming now.  We sifted through the soil very gently and found tiny little potatoes.  Ben wouldn't let me pick them because they were so small.  This is our first year to grow potatoes and I think it is so exciting.   Hopefully they will be big enough to pick...
