today a fresh & easy opened a few blocks from our house and i am so excited! i love their heat & serve entrees and quick lunch items. mostly though i love their grapefruit juice, they actually leave in the pulp! i'm a great lover of pulp in my citrus juices and until now, i've never known grapefruit juice to be sold with pulp before. i know it's such a small thing, but i couldn't wait to stop by on my lunch break and get some. pregnant women are easy to please sometimes. sometimes. :) i'm looking forward to shop here soon with my wonderful mil, i'm sure she'd love it. hear that mil?! if anything, it's a great excuse to have you come visit again!
speaking of pregnancy, here's my personal POV of my feet. i can still see them. also, here are my new shoes i've been wearing every time i walk out the door for the last two weeks. no really, nearly every time. i watered my plants in these puppies today. anyway, i like them. they remind me of peonies.

today i'm 11 weeks pregnant, and as you can probably guess, the bambino is about the size of a small lemon. i feel about the size of a small lemon tree but am surprisingly a pound lighter than i was at my doctor's appointment three weeks ago. it's probably all that throwing up i've been doing.... :)
we're pretty optimistic about this pregnancy, i've never been farther than five and a half weeks before. my doctor prescribed me daily shots of heparin which thins my blood enough for the baby to get all the nutrients and yummy chick-fil-a i've been consuming, (mmmmmmmm chick-fil-a!) on wednesday i was able to hear the heartbeat for the first time with the help of a midwife friend at church. it was just a beautiful and amazing thing to hear, especially since i never knew if i would ever hear one. it's truly something i will treasure all my life. it makes all the sickness and painful shots worth it. God has been so good to us!

martha stewart gave me a gift today. yay! i've been waiting for the october issue all summer!
i planted some mums for fall.
i don't remember what this is called :( but i really love it.
the color isn't so good on my camera phone, but this is more burgundy in real life.
the office premiers tonight! :)
