Bits of Sweetness: Fill in the Blank Friday

Fill in the Blank Friday

1. Over this labor day weekend I will be probably not in labor ;-) Baby still hasn't dropped yet! We are all getting super excited over here though!! In the meantime, I am sweetly smiling at all the comments with the words, "watermelon" or "about to pop" in them. I know people mean well. Maybe I should start telling random strangers, "Aww someone looks like they swallowed a watermelon!" when clearly they're not pregnant. Doesn't quite have the same connotation huh? ;-)

2. With the political debates going on right now, my thoughts are that we sure got the "change" we asked for! I really really hope America gets out there to vote because the people underestimate the power they hold!

3. Today I am thankful my photo-editing is going as well as I hoped it would. I love this sweet family! Bill & Erin make the cutest couple and Erin's daughter Ella is just growing up so quickly! {Is she a charming sweetheart or what?!} I've known her since she was two! It is amazing to see her blossoming into such a beautiful sweet girl!

4. The best thing I've cooked recently was homemade chicken and dumplings. They were so good! My mom used to make them all the time when I grew up yet I have never ever made them from scratch . No idea why! But it was about time! Thankful for good friends for inspiring me to make it :)

5. The last thing I bought was a new template and design for my blog. I kindof like it. What do you think?

6. The best movie I saw this summer was the Lorax, in the park with the family. Although the Avengers was really good too! We have that to watch tonight for a "date night" after Andrew goes to bed :) Wish me luck in not falling asleep!! It is soo hard not to!!! And it drives Josh nuts! Oops...

7. The best book I read this summer was I'll get back to you on that one :) I have yet to actually finish one this summer! Any good recommendations??

Linking up


  1. My last two kids I went in for an appointment and was told that it would be awhile because I hadnt dialated, the baby hadnt dropped, and I wasnt effaced (sp)... Ended up having them just a couple days later! You *might* have your baby by labor day! Excited to hear the news when he comes!

  2. Hi! Thanks for checking out my blog! I see you're about to have a blessing! I hope you have a quick, easy delivery!

  3. Laura, I love the pictures of the family you took. Just beautiful! Love this fill in the blank too!!
