Thanksgiving Road trip

Well we got back yesterday from a 5 day road trip to the coast of North Carolina.
We went geocaching along the way with an average of 4-5 hours driving each day. Now- 4-5 hours is the driving part. Most of the time we were in the car at least 7-8 hours as we stopped to play and food and of course geocaching.

here is Daves recap of each day

Day 1
Day 2
Day 3
Day 4
Day 5

On Sunday night we made sure we were at a hotel near the Charlotte airport so Dave could fly off for a work trip leaving me to pack up child and dog and go to Ikea. (not sure if I mentioned my love of Ikea here- ha!)

We arrived home around 3pm on Monday and I still havent done any groceries Tuesday night (we have enough left from our trip)

Here are my pictures:

and a video of Zeke counting while we were driving:

and a couple more where he was very excited to go geocaching:

quilting- whats that?

wow- I have been in a dry spell since Aug. (minus the wedding his and hers quilts and finishing a small wall hanging )

Since getting pregnant I have not made hardly anything!
I am feeling it after this long.

looking a head I cannot see time to quilt until the new year- this is making me sad. I will have to try to squeeze in some time somewhere.

I have a table quilt that I am hand quilting to keep me a bit more sane.

But I am now 18 weeks and starting to feel the tickles in the tummy :D
at 16 weeks
I absolutely love that feeling!

dont mind the non smile- I was taking this while Dave was getting Zeke ready for bed on a self timer. 10 seconds can be very long.

hopefully I can get my but in gear.

Next up:
- Cleaning up the basement office/craft room/man cave
- move quilting stuff to basement
- redecorate guest room to make it my sons bed room

then we can start moving zeke into his room (out of the nursery) to make room for #2 and the whole toddler bed thing.
We hope we can have both a toddler bed and the queen  guest bed in the same room until I am comfortable with Zeke sleeping in the big bed.

Google reader

Reading your blog posts though Google Reader is great except you cannot see the actual blog layouts.

here is a tip I got from Scary Mommy

Finally, a tip for design loving blog readers: If you read blogs through Google Reader, but miss actually seeingthe blogs, this is the answer you’ve been waiting for: Logged into your Google account, go here and click on the Goodies tab. Once you “Put Reader in a Bookmark,” you will be able to read the posts from your readerintheir actual blogs. You get to see the blog post in the pretty design, and the blogger gets the page-view. Win, win for everyone.

EXCEPT it hasnt been working for me since they changed the Reader Layout!

I will update this when it works again. 

EDIT: it works again!! yay!

I have blogged this so I have the info handy for when i need to do it again.
