Feeling Better?

So, I am in my 14th week and the last couple of days have been really good.....I am super hopeful that I am in my turning around point. It has been a LONG time coming ;) I have been feeling blechy for two months even being on Diclectin....which I am still taking and am planning to till 24 weeks or so. With my last baby I'm pretty sure I was on it till about then if not later. 
Anyways, the thought of feeling better is very exciting....getting back to a more normal routine and enjoying time with friends and family. I took my girlies to our local splash park yesterday and it was so nice to get out with them and visit with the friends I went with!
I might have overdone it slightly but it was so worth it, the Dr Pepper slushy I had in the evening....not worth it. I had such a hard time falling asleep even though I was exhausted from the day ;)
Today I'm thinking of taking it a bit easier and maybe tackling a few things around the house....laundry, dishes, general cleaning but we will see. I'm sure I could figure out something I want to do more ;)
Food wise I'm still pounding back the strawberries(yum) and having a banana or two a day(blech) and then generally just eating pretty normal. Always thirsty and ice, lots of ice in my drinks.

Proverbs 3

"My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity." Prov 3:1-2
This definition is found in the websters 1828 online dictionary. I love how it incorporates biblical reference and the definitions are definitely more biblically focused. I love the first part of the definition
"Advance or gain in anything good or desirably..."
Could be in friendships, in job situation, in family life.....it's not just focused on financial gain. I think sometimes when we hear prosperity the first thing that jumps to mind is money/wealth but there is so much more to it. So many more amazing and unexpected things that God will bless us with. So let's not limit our view on what God does and be open to the many exciting things God has in store for us....His prosperities.

Hello Again

It's been awhile since my last time on here. Usually I'm posting some DIY or craft I've been working on but today I'm posting my first pregnancy Blog. Not entirely sure how these are going to look throughout the pregnancy but here we go....
I am in my 13th week of my third pregnancy. My youngest babe is 5 so it has been awhile since I've done this and my memory is not so great in all things. I definitely remember the morning sickness and I'm "enjoying" it again with this pregnancy but I cannot recall milestones and when they should be happening. Two milestones that I have already experienced are,
1) I heard the babies heartbeat for the first time in my 11th week and it was 140.....if that means anything to you ;)
2) I felt baby move(in week 12) and have since seen baby move(yesterday)....saw it move across my tummy :)
These are both very exciting things that remind me what's actually going on inside when, for the most part, all I can focus on is getting through the months of morning sickness. It's pretty miserable, as I'm sure some of you can relate, and you have no idea how badly I long for my body to begin to feel good again. So many people tell me "oh but just think of what you will be having in the end" but honestly, that's not what I want to be hearing at this point ;) I know I'm having a baby and I know I'm going to get to a point in this pregnancy where that will be my focus and I will be so freakin excited but for now I'm just getting through....with a couple great glimpses of what's to come.
So before I end here's a small list of things about this pregnancy so far....
-morning sickness started around week 5
-went on prescription(diclectin) for morning sickness week 6
-napped a lot from week 7 till about week 9/10
-napping now effects my nigh-time sleep :(
-eating tons and tons of strawberries, yum
-the thought of eating chicken does not appeal to me
-haven't worn jeans for about 2 months now
-haven't purchased any maternity clothes yet
-found a boys name we love(don't know the sex yet)
-having hard time keeping house clean!
Hope you enjoyed this little peak into my pregnancy and if you want more I also have a YouTube that I'm doing pregnancy vlogs and other pregnancy related videos on. I will also continue to keep you updated on here. Thanks, TinaMarie
Next time I will put up a more current bump picture :)

Flower Bobby Pin DIY

 You can typically find all these supplies at Michael's but, other then the glue, I bought my supplies online. The glue I use takes 24-48 hours to fully cure so other then that amount of time these should only take you a couple minutes to put together.
I put a small amount of glue on the resin flower and attach it to the crochet flower. Then I put slightly more glue on the back of the crochet flower and attach it to the bobby pin. I then place them on a piece of paper to the side and continue on with others. When I set them aside to dry I make sure they are balanced in the bobby pin(not leaning to one side or the other) as I don't want the flowers I have attached to slide around at all. Hope you find this helpful, Have fun!!! :)

My Girlies Bedroom

My two girls have recently started sharing a room(long story but it involves messy bedrooms) and to make it special for them I redecorated.
I had soooo much fun doing it....well, most of it....and I plan to keep futzing but really wanted to get these pics up to show it off ;)
A few of the things in the pictures were DIY projects that I filmed for YouTube so I will put the links to them at the bottom of this post. The bunk is from Ikea(and I love it!), the dresser is mine from when I was a little girl, found a few things at Micheal's and a few things at thrift stores and DIY'd a couple things. Thanks for checking out my blog I hope it provides you with some inspiration :)
