21 Weeks. Officially OVER halfway there.

40 weeks seems like it is going to come way too soon. We are already over halfway to having a baby?! Woah, Nelly... SLOW DOWN.
Isn't this dress the cutest!? Motherhood Maternity has some pretty great pieces (Thanks Sarah!)!

So, I had mentioned to some of you that Tim and I had pretty much picked our baby names. One top girl name, one top boy name. Well, this week, we re-assessed, and took a fresh look at our list of all the names we like. Then we did a top five for both boys and girls. Man! This is tough work. We're totally in limbo over the initial names we thought we were going to stick with. It will be so fun to see what we end up deciding. It seems like such a tough decision. having to choose for our kid, the name that they are STUCK with for the rest of their lives (unless they change it when they're legal, I guess). YIKES! I don't want that responsibility!

The funny thing is, I've dreamed up my most favorite names for "my kids someday" throughout my entire life. Don't all girls? Well, Now that I have 300 different lists to go by, I also have to remember that Tim is now in the picture. He gets a vote, too ;)

NO, we're not telling any of the names. Go ask someone else.

Amy, it looks like you are getting "rounder." Especially on photo #1. Looking forward to seeing you and maybe even feeling baby move!
Suzy, I AM getting rounder. Pretty much every night when we're brushing our teeth, Tim says something like, "WOW, now you REALLY are looking pregnant!"

We're really looking forward to your visit, too! Can't wait to hopefully have you feel baby move... at least see the bump in person!

Having fun when you're not having fun.

What it feels like to parent on a daily basis, completely exhausted.  Yet, still determined to get through the day. 

Hope you get a kick out of this as much as I did. :) Laughing out loud over here.

Alopecia | Be a light in the Dark, 2 Corinthians 4

The other day in reading during my quiet time, I was revisiting 2 Corinthians. I was thinking, Tim and I have spent many an hour thinking a lot, about a lot. There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

Celebrating 8 years | Marriage

Tim and I were blessed with a lovely weekend away on the North Shore, back to where it all began. Here is a photo from one of our days up there. We hiked at Tettegouche State Park, and couldn't have asked for better weather or fall colors!
