There's not really a lot to report on this week... It seems like my belly got quite a bit bigger over this last week (I know I say that every week ;)) I've been keeping track of my measurements each week and I'm steadily getting 0.5" bigger each week, so I'm not sure why it seems like its so much bigger, but it does! I'm pretty sure I only have about a week, if that, left at wearing my normal pants for work. They are getting pretty tight, so I guess I'm going to have to go shopping - shucks! I do have some black maternity shorts already that I ordered from Old Navy, but it's not quite warm enough to wear those yet.

Last Friday and Saturday I got to go on a ladies' retreat with our church. I think there were about 80 ladies that attended. We went to Rogers, AR and stopped for some delicious catfish in Fayetteville on the way there. We had a session Friday evening and then a couple more Saturday morning. We also had a craft project Friday night - a necklace, which was right up my alley! The theme was Hidden Treasure - we learned about spiritual gifts and took a test to see what our's are. My top 2 were mercy & servant. I had such a wonderful time getting to know several of the ladies better and just enjoyed the fellowship and little break from the normal. After lunch on Saturday, everyone got to go shopping at the Pinnacle Hills mall, except me. One of my friends was having a baby shower that afternoon in Farmington, so my mom was nice enough to come get me so we could go to the shower. It was great to see some friends and catch up a little. Then mom took me back so I didn't miss the bus back to Tulsa. The weekend was so much fun, but went by way too fast! (They have a way of doing that, lol!)

Here's my 25 1/2 week photo:
 I know I already said it, but I am getting so excited about our little guy! I can't wait to meet him, see his personality, and who he looks like!

Hope everyone has a great Easter weekend!
