Miscellany Monday ~ Happy V-Day!

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters


First I want to say Happy Valentine's Day to everyone out there!  A day filled with pink hearts, pretty flowers, sappy cards..whats not to love?  Hope everyone has a wonderful day with their significant other whether its your hubby or boyfriend!  And if your single..I know this isn't the greatest of holidays to want to celebrate..but you can find the good in what you love most about your life and celebrate that!!


Did everyone have a good weekend?  Sure hope so..mine was filled with getting things done (like taxes and cleaning..lovely!)..being with my guy (awesome!)..and spending some time OUTSIDE!  Yes..I said outside!!  We had some great weather yesterday for the first time this year..temps were in the 60s and it felt great!  Getting outside and walking the dog..visiting w/neighbors..and seeing some of the first signs of spring was a great break from being couped up in the house.  I do love winter..but everyone needs a breath of fresh air now and again!  Was very thankful for that yesterday!


Another thing I'm thankful for (this is turning into a 'thankfulness post' isnt it?)..Damon fired up the grill yesterday and made some of his HUGE burgers he's known for!  Oh yummy day!!  He comes up with some great ideas of things to stuff into the burgers.  Case in point, yesterdays burgers had mushrooms and olives mixed in!  They were REALLY good too!  Here is a picture I took of my burger..after a couple of bites, of course!  ;-)


One of the things we accomplished over the weekend was buying and putting together a wardrobe closet for Damon's clothes!  We needed to get the closet cleared out in Makayla's room so that was the solution.  Got to say..the wardrobe looks pretty great in my sewing room too!  Here is Damon putting the finishing touches on it...


Today I'm 25 weeks pregnant!  Time is really going by fast!  Here is a picture of me from the other day...

And last but not least..while in the middle of doing this blog post (which btw is my 200th post!) I got the dreaded phone call from my doctor's office.  I really need y'alls prayers.  They said my blood glucose test came back slightly elevated and they want me to come back in for some more tests on wednesday of this week.  She said it was only slightly elevated and could have been caused by something sweet I had the evening before my test (it was 7 points higher than what they would have liked) no sweets for me until I get this done.  Pray my results come back normal this time!!! 

Until tomorrow, happy Monday to everyone!




  1. Melanie, I sure hope your numbers are down where they want them when you go back. But in all honesty, I had gestational diabetes when I carried Tucker and they put me on the diabetic diet and it was the BEST thing that could have happened to me! I was put on bed rest before I even reached 5 months because of some other issues I had and I know I would have been big as a horse if I hadn't been put on that diet. I actually had to eat so much food (2200 calories daily!) that it was tough to get it all down, but I was eating healthy foods and in the right combinations and it made a world of difference for me. I actually LOST weight during the pregnancy...meaning I lost fat but had a healthy 8 lb. 8 oz. baby. :) If I were carrying again (which I never will due to hysterectomy anyway) I would go back on that diet on my own because I know it was good for me and good for the baby. So don't fret too much. It will all work out. :)

  2. I'll say a prayer for you! Those burgers look SO delicious! And we are also having beautiful weather... spring is near! Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

  3. Saying a prayer for you! And baby Makayla! We are having some awesome weather here too and may need to fire up the grill...those burgers looked yummy!
