I know you all are wondering where my Costa Rica posts have been, and just as soon as I manage to pull myself out from under the 400 pounds of vacation laundry I’ll have those posts up. We had a wonderful trip and I can’t wait to tell you all about it.

But first, some news on the baby front…

Not MY baby front. It’s my sister’s! GINNY’S PREGNANT!


I have been dying to tell people, but Ginny and John Michael were both very cautious this time. She’s 20 weeks now, looks fabulous, feels fabulous, and is due in August. I am so darn happy for her and JM that I just can’t stand it!

True to our gene pool, Ginny decided that it wasn’t enough to be pregnant. She decided to buy a house, too! And start a new job! The same week she started a new job in Atlanta was the same week they closed on their new house. Lots going on in their world right now! We are beyond excited for them!

Ginny’s always been beautiful, but I think motherhood makes her radiant, don’t you???

We’re going up to Atlanta for a housewarming/gender reveal party in a couple weeks. The invitation said to wear the color of the gender you think the baby will be. I’m wearing PINK ALL THE WAY!!!!! I gots me a feelin’!

  36. Yah, I’m so happy for Ginny and JM!!! I had a miscarriage last year and the only thing I kept thinking about was Ginny and the post you wrote about her miscarriage – it made me feel so much less alone. We are now expecting again (18 weeks) and I was wondering if they would try again too. I’m so happy for them and thanks again for sharing their story. It really helped me out knowing that many others have gone through the same thing.

  59. Julia Harts the Man

    Lately I have dreaded seeing people’s pregnancy announcements since we are still struggling with infertility ourselves. I remember reading about your sister losing her pregnancy though and it really hit me how horrible that must have been for everyone. I am the older sister in my family but can’t imagine my little sis having to go through that or what I could do to help her. Going through my own miscarriage and seeing your sister pregnant now has really made my day. I have hope again that someday I will be pregnant as well and I am so happy for your sister. Please pass on my congratulations and I look forward to reading more. ~Julia

  60. I am so happy for Ginny & JM! Congrats x

  63. Nicole C. (Piper_E)

I’m so excited to be the only one to know the gender for a whole week! I think you follow me on pinterest, but I’m not sure, but look at my reveal party board, so adorable!

  64. Your sister looks precious! Congratulations to her!!
