Back in early July I posted a flipagram for our 6th Anniversary. I know dating anniversaries don't count but I don't really care. :) It was fun to go back and look at the last 6 years worth of pictures.

The sweetest room, ever.

When we started talking about having a baby, I think I had more thoughts about the nursery than anything else. I have a secret board on pinterest that I had been saving ideas for --I can't believe I'm admitting this-- years! 

So when we found out on January 6th that we were expecting (first I was shocked and excited) and secondly, I started browsing pinterest again.

My favorite- homemade pumpkin bread

I've always loved pumpkin bread. I don't just want it in the fall, I want it all the time. My mom always made it homemade for me but as I've moved out on my own, I skimp and use the boxed mix most of the time. Eeek! I even bought this perfect bread pan about 3 years ago to make this bread in. Sad to admit, this is the first time I've actually used it.

BBQ Shrimp for the WIN!

I know I've talked about Paul Prudhomme on here a number of times and today I'm back with one of my favorite recipes!

In July we went to the beach with my family. Brian and I split up the trip to make it a little easier on my swollen feet and such-- so we made it early and decided to make an appetizer to welcome everyone :)

Babies Everywhere!

We finally got to meet baby Madalyn last week. I say we, Brian got to meet her the day she was born! He happened to be in Wynne and swung by the hospital in Forrest City on his way home. I was a touch jealous but finally got my turn. Wendy and Daniel were in town for an appointment last week and brought Baby J's little friend over to see us. We even go to try out some of our baby stuff with her. What a fun time we're going to have with all these sweet little best friends :)

What a fun July it was for baby Johnston! We had 3 wonderful showers and got to spend lots of time with our friends and family :)

Skinnytaste Beef + Broccoli

If you follow my blog at all, you know I'm a huge fan of Skinnytaste. I've bought both of the cookbooks (HERE and HERE) and I'm a regular on her blog. Well plus I follow her on snap, facebook and instagram..... 

Brian was highly skeptical at first, with the name Skinny Taste, he feared everything would be bland and far too healthy to be tasty. He comments all the time how much flavor each dish has! Which just goes to show how much seasoning can make a dish.

Mike's Cafe

Last month, Brian took me to lunch at a place he found one day when I was traveling for work. I remember him sending me snaps and going on about how great it was. I was dying for him to go back-- and take me this time! It's a Vietnamese and Chinese place called Mike's Cafe on Asher Ave. in Little Rock. I had the chicken pho and it was amazing!! Look at all that awesome freshness in front of us :). I think Brian had the beef-- but I really can't remember. Everything on the menu looked amazing and I can't wait to go back and try more! Check it out!

Trip to D.C.

A couple weeks ago I went to Washington D.C. for my final Delta Leadership Institute Executive Academy session. The academy actually ends with graduation in Kentucky in August but since I'll be 36 weeks pregnant then, we think it's best for me to stay close to home, my doctor and my hospital :)

It's a......

GIRL! :) 

My coworker Jennifer made me promise to only tell her the gender once we found out because she wanted to do something special at work. Well the next day I came in to THIS! I sure wish I would have cleaned up my office the day before.
