Keeping up with Kristin


Hello world!  I could not be more excited to get back into the blogging world.  When I found out I was pregnant several months ago I decided it would be my last year of teaching at the most wonderful preschool.  I wanted to stay at home and be with my new little peanut and watch him grow because I know it happens FAST.  This was a hard decision for me because I absolutely adored what I got to do and made so many great relationships, but I think it is so special to be apart of the journey of raising your child!  I wanted to find a way to share this special time in our lives with everyone we love!  I think blogging is an amazing way to share this journey.  Being pregnant has done so many wonderful things for our growing family.  It has made me feel beautiful on the inside and out! I have discovered so many things about myself in this adventure thus far which I can’t wait to share.

The news of my pregnancy came in March on our way to Annapolis for a friend’s wedding.  I had a rush of emotions and could not wait to share the news with our family and friends.  Right along the 8 week mark at Easter dinner we surprised our family with the news!  (I know they say wait until 12 weeks but if you know me you would know that I’m not very good at keeping secrets!) What better way to tell your family than with TINY baby converse!  By the way if you’re wondering who Kreid is, it’s Reid and my “combo name.”  I mean it’s no Bragelina, but it’ll do 😉  The cheesy couple name came from our wedding festivities a couple of years back!  Plus if you know Reid, you know he’s all about jamming out to some Creed at karaoke bars (Yes, it happens quite frequently).  So all in all, quite fitting for us!  I am now coming up on 29 weeks this friday and can’t believe how fast the time has flown!  I cannot wait to meet this little guy!  With this pregnancy has come LOTS of nesting.  I mean…lots.  In the past couple months we have remodeled our entire kitchen and main living area, setup a nursery which included lots of fun DIY projects, and are now tackling a laundry room and guest bathroom update.  I also am pretty sure I am getting a minor form of OCD when it comes to cleaning these days!  Please tell me this is all part of nesting?  I will share with you our house updates and do a full nursery tour as soon as possible.  For now, thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoy my crazy baby brain ramble 🙂
