Time is flying by!

So, again it's been too long since I have updated. I just loaded all of my pictures to my computer and here is what we've been so busy with! It is in no order at all and I apologize for that, I guess I'm just a bit lazy. This fall has been great and we've had a blast hanging out with family and friends and oh yeah...getting ready for baby Konynenbelt!! 13 weeks to go until we meet our lil' buddy! Something tells me that after the christmas season, February will be here before we know it! Shopping with my girlfriends in Chicago. Great weekend girls!
Making apple cider on the Annual Cider Day with the VanDeRiet family Erik making bread on a Saturday morning. Love, love, love that he's soo good at this! Don't ask me why I decided to snap pictures that morning!
I am 26 weeks and we'll be 27 on Friday! Woohoo:)
Hanging out with my favorite little's hard to get a pic of both of them looking at the camera!! Are they not just soooo adorable?!
Rylie and Grandma at Halloween..cute lil ladybug:)
Making Chili for the annual chili cookoff! Ours was a bit hot, some said "could tell a pregnant women made it.." I will admit that it burned a bit going down...but worth second place!

Great News!

So Erik and I had our ultrasound onThursday and everything is going along great! This was such an awesome appointment for so many reasons. We were able to see the baby from every angle and it's just crazy to me that they can see all those tiny little parts. It feels awesome to know that God has chosen us to carry this baby! We also found out that everything is going along just the way it should be..clean bill of health. Which was AWESOME news! We also found out the sex of the baby..and we couldn't be more excited to have a little baby BOY on the way! Sooo fun:) AND I am now 21 weeks, so I'm officially in the second half of pregnancy. Woohoo! I can't wait to meet our lil' buddy ;)

We're back!!

Wow, it's been WAY too long! I can't believe I haven't updated since Erik's birthday..although that picture is so cute to look at isn't it? So hmmm...what have we been up to for so long? LOTS OF STUFF! Updates on that later....

I did want to make a "little" announcement tonight..we're having a baby!! Some (or most of you) probably already know but some of you may not..I am saying this like I have people who actually check this blog out anymore!

Our little peanut is due February 19 and we can't wait! We couldn't be more excited to grow our family and for this miracle that God's given us. Although pregnancy has already been something to get used to, I am eagerly waiting and knowing that it's ALL worth it! It's so much fun:) Everything is going along GREAT and we are looking forward to our ultrasound on October 8, it can't get here quick enough!
I will definetly be posting some pictures in the next couple of days..but until then..good night!

In two days I will go to work and get in the elevator-push the 11th floor button for the last time and say goodbye to all my good friends that I've had for the past 4 and a half years. While I know that I will still see my friends from work even while at my new job, it's still hard to think that I won't be seeing the same people when I arrive at work everyday! I actually have to meet new people and get in the swing of things somewhere else..seems wierd and so distant, yet it's only days away! So anyways, I am tired. I have been working like a dog for the past week and a half to get the piles of stuff done before I leave, all while in an organized manner. Haaa-right! One of the attorneys came up to me yesterday and said something along the lines of them taking a "hunk of flesh" out of me this week. Nothing like starting out a week with an introduction like that. My response was "can I pick what part?" That's my way of making light to the long week that I'm in the middle of. Who makes an analogy like that..kinda gross! Sorry for such a boring post..although check out one of my favorite websites (lately it's getting me away from my own mind and thoughts and to-do lists.) I go to this website ALL the time-for my daily dose of creative fuel. There are great ideas for DIY's and wonderful before and afters. Also, it really puts me in a good mood. So cheers to designsponge and cheers to my new job!

New Beginnings

I am going to admit, I have neglected posting for quite some time now. Some of you might think, well she's done with school she's probably busy working etc..well guess what-I'm not! So I have had more than enough time to post and catch up on some much needed blog time, but there isn't that much news with us and I am really enjoying my time off. Going to school and working took up lots of time and now that I only work two days a week (I know that's not very much..) I have been able to do some stuff that I couldn't do while in school, there's only so many hours in a day! That chapter of my life is finished and new one is beginning. I think I'm in a transition period right now but I am enjoying it and looking at the positives.. I have been busy sleeping in the extra hour, doing the craft(s) I have been meaning to do for awhile now, hanging out with the little Rylie, actually cooking dinner with Erik and the list goes on. Don't get me wrong, I love this time right now, but I am looking for a full time job. One that allows me to use my creativity and also one that betters the community. I have been doing some stuff on the side, and that's great, but something stable would be great too!! So that's my life in a nutshell right now. Here are some pictures of the last month, including graduation (never actually posted pictures.) Also Congratulations to Dana & Brett who were married this past weekend! They are dear friends of Erik and I and deserve the best. Their wedding was absolutely beautiful and a great time was had by ALL! Hope all is well bloggy friends :)

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had fun ringing in the New Year. Whether you were out and about or at home with the fam, being with family and friends is what it's all about. I know one little girl who eagerly welcomed the new year, afterall, she spent most of last year waiting for this moment! Here are a few more pics of the lovely lady....
