30 Weeks!

Here's my 30 week picture! I'm almost 31 weeks by now but since my computer was messed up I'm just now posting it! I'm still sick....waking up during the night to throw up is NOT a pleasant experience. Ha! Cravings: oranges, grapefruit (dipped in sugar of course!), chocolate, and juice.

Love Dare

Has anyone else heard of the Love Dare? I heard about it on the radio last week. It's a 40 day challenge to help husbands and wives grow in their relationship together. There's a simple dare for each day. Today's dare: Ask your spouse to tell you three things that cause him or her to be uncomfortable or irritated with you. You must do so without attacking them or justifying your behavior. This is from their perspective only. I've been married to Ty for 6 1/2 years, and I feel like we have a strong and loving marriage. But with 2 (almost 3!) kids, jobs, and life in general, we tend to get sidetracked and more or less "forget" about each other. So this is exactly what we need! I'm so excited to see how we grow in our relationship as we continue the Love Dare together.
