Garage for Sale

Katie and Stan sold some of their junk too!
(by Tiff) Sometimes I think it would have been easier to sell our entire house - all contents included - than to prepare for the garage sale.  As much work as we put into cleaning out closets, drawers, cabinets, nooks, crannies and the attic, we should have made tens of thousands of dollars...instead we made $400.  The good news is that it got us to clean out our lives, get rid of junk we've been storing for "someday" - that we actually never used in the 5 years we've lived in our house - and make room for baby.  And honestly, it's $400 we didn't have last week, so hey, that's a win!  But I am so happy to have it over and done stress level has come down about 4000% since last week, and for that I am grateful (as I'm sure Brock is too so I can stop with the garage-sale-nagging and mini-melt-downs).

In fun news for the week, baby girl is moving up a storm!  She really likes to eat and gets active after almost every meal...but the big milestone was that Brock actually got to feel her move last night too.  So a super fun time now that she reminds me that she's always with me :)  I've got another sonogram next Friday, so I'll post baby pics then, but for now, it's just me and my belly! (with the beautiful flowers Brock got me...thanks hun!)

Hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th!  We're hanging around town hoping it doesn't rain all weekend so we can spend some time at the lake/pool.  Happy Independence Day America!!


  1. Hey Tiff, you look so cute! That was the most exciting part of pregnancy, being able to feel the baby moving. Enjoy it!

  2. Love the pics! Enjoy each minute...It really will go by fast and before you know it you are leaving the hospital sitting beside your new love (not Brock - the other one) ha,ha The moves become more intense and makes things very real!

  3. So fun that you're feeling the baby move now! Just wait, pretty soon she'll be kicking you in the ribs and bladder! :)
