    So I’ve been meaning to tell you guys something for weeks and weeks now.

    baby carrots

    And it’s been one of the hardest secrets to keep.


    Even though Mal and I are super excited about this news, we didn’t even share it with our families until Thanksgiving.


    But now we (including Murphy) are ready to share our special news with all of you.

    Next spring, we’re expecting a tiny, new family member (not a pug puppy).

    Danica @ It's Progression December 15, 2013 at 9:01 am

    I’ve been reading your blog for years now, and I’ll probably sound crazy for saying this but I actually was suspicious that you were expected a few weeks ago. I’m not sure what it was that gave me that hunch, but regardless, I’m so excited for you!

    Oh my gosh, I got goosebumps! CONGRATULATIONS!!! I wish you the best of luck and good health during your pregnancy :)


    Bezzymates December 15, 2013 at 11:06 am

    I could tell you were preggers weeks ago. I’m always the first to detect pregnancies amongst my friends and family. Your face looked fuller in the Murphy video, as did your thigh region (as they should when pregnant!) plus, you have a glow about you I could see even online. No baby carrots were necessary for me! Lol.

    Best wishes and God blessing’s on your new addition!


    Katie December 15, 2013 at 11:55 am

    I love the baby carrots!! Such a cute announcement! I usually don’t read the comments section, mostly only care what you say. :) I was shocked to see how many readers were excited to say they had already known. I thought I must have been reading a different blog cause I had no idea! So, I went back to see if I missed something and was shocked at the amount of readers trying to call you out before you were ready to make an announcement. Guess I do not have thick enough skin to be a blogger! Anyways…. Huge congrats and can’t wait to follow along during this exciting time!!
