I have been bad at blogging lately. Probably because the only thing I want to do when I'm home is lay down and do nothing. Pregnancy hasn't been good to me. I always thought that when I was pregnant I would eat a really healthy organic diet, but it has really been the opposite. For the past 3 months I've been living off a diet of toast and cheerios...and even that I haven't been keeping down all the time. But I think I'm finally turning a corner and starting to feel better. And the timing couldn't have been better for this trip. Still, I can't wait to meet this cute little stinker that has been causing all this misery!

The best thing about living in London is how cheap and easy it is to travel. Ty has been working insane hours since January, so it was so nice to get away for Easter weekend. We went to southern Portugal and rented a car and drove along the coast to different towns and beaches.

Ty was so happy to be able to surf...the water was pretty cold though
I on the other hand just got to put my feet in the water and watch everyone else surf. It still was really fun. And I have to admit that I was a little glad to have the pregnancy excuse becuase the water was so cold.

I wasn't very excited when Ty ordered fish becuase the smell and the thought of fish makes me sick, and I was even less excited when it came out with the head, eyeballs and everything. But I had to take a picture of the final product.

We felt like we were in the movie 'Just Married' driving around this tiny car. It was pretty funny trying to fit the surf board on top.

21 days and counting...

Heidi, Matt and Owen are coming to visit at the end of this month. I'm so excited! I've been counting down the days until they arrive since they bought their tickets and now it's only 21 days away. I haven't seen them since October!! My eyes well up with tears just thinking about it!!
