I'm back :-)

It's been a while since I've written. I took some time to go back to NY and enjoy my family and just relax. I renovated my room at my mom's house and got it ready for next year when I move back home. I am actually really excited about it now. It will be awful to be away from my husband for a year but everything will be so much better at home. Here is a picture of me working hard :-)

That is abut 1/2 done. We replaced the ceiling, painted the walls and mantle, painted the doors and those white boxes, put up new ceiling molding and floor molding, and put in a new carpet. Lots of painting, lots of construction, and it looks amazing now! It puts my mind at ease knowing that my room at home is ready for me to move in and is exactly what I wanted. It will be a little strange moving back home after living on my own for so long. It will be so great having all the help with the new baby though. Definitely super appreciative of that. 
My husband and I are from the same town so his family will all be close too which is awesome. If he can't he around I'm thankful that both of our families will be able to be. 
BUT, that's all in the future. 

I am back in North Carolina now. My grandma and I drove through big bad earl to get here in time for my husband's return from 29 Palms. I am so thankful she came with me because I was really sick for the entire drive down and I probably wouldn't have been able to drive. She drove the whole first day and a good portion of the second day. That made everything so much easier. 

I have had really bad sinus congestion for about a month now. It's been awful. I finally feel a lot better today. I have a little bit of pressure in my head which is a pain but I can breathe which is great!

I had a dentist appointment Tuesday which didn't go so well. I have 6 cavities and I need to get my wisdom teeth out once the baby is born. 6 cavities!! I have been seeing a dentist twice a year since I was a child and I only had 2 cavities until i got pregnant. Now I have 6 damn cavities!! Geesh. I had 2 cavities filled today and it stunk. I love getting my teeth cleaned but I HATE getting them drilled and that  one tool that vibrates your whole jaw. OH, and the damn needles that numb your mouth. YUCK. 

But, other than all of that my husband is finally home after 3 long weeks!<3 It's so great having him here. I don't need to tell you ladies how it feels to have your man home though :-)

Our next doctor appointment is the 20th and hopefully we will be finding out what we're having! Sooo exciting!! We have started our registry but we can't finish it until we know the sex of the baby. I can't wait to know what we're having. My fingers are crossed for a girl but of course we are excited either way :-)

So anyways, that's my catch up wrapped up in a little post. I think it's nap time now. My head hurts and this baby loves her sleep lol. 

I Love You Mr. Sykes<3
You too Mr. Sykes<3

  1. I always love your blog posts. :) Awh, I can't wait for you to be able to take pictures of your room COMPLETELY finished. I'm sure it will look amazing.

    Ahhhh; I could almost feel the drill on my teeth! ICK! :( I'm getting some uber sinus congestion now. I feel for ya! But, YAY for babies! :D

  2. Glad your husband is home! I HATE cavities too! One semester in college I chewed gum that was not sugar free for an entire semester and went home for Christmas and found out I had 10 cavities. It was the worst. I learned my lesson about only chewing sugar free gum. And I hate the tool that vibrates your whole jaw too.

  3. cute room! and yay for getting to see your man!
