The Past Month....

....has basically been a blur!  Since the move, I had a quick weekend visit to Mike in St. Louis, while he was attending a training class, and then he came home and we started settling in to our new home in Nashville. 

We're enjoying Nashville so far and have been busy just getting adjusted.  With two new jobs, an ever-present bump making her presence known, and the ridiculously hot weather, things seem to be moving REALLY quickly this summer/year!  Mike is enjoying his new job so far, though he is ready for the hotel to be open for business, which is now planned for the beginning of August.  I'm settling in to my third week of work at the Hotel Indigo Downtown Nashville and really like it so far.  It's a really cool building, located just a few blocks from Broadway (country music heaven) and Printer's Alley (blues music heaven), and "boasts" the largest Starbucks in the United States-it even has an art gallery!  Hopefully things will go well here and they'll take me back after maternity leave, but that's a discussion for another day.  Oh, and we bought a grill!!!!  So exciting!  And new living room furniture, no more pet-eaten furniture for us (at least not for a few months, hopefully!).

Other than work, we enjoyed a nice July 4th with Mike Dad, Step-mom and sister, Mary.  We also had an early birthday celebration for Mike this past weekend, as his birthday is on Thursday and we'll be in Vincennes this coming weekend.  We enjoyed a yummy dinner and drinks out, exploring Franklin, our nearby historic town-so cute! Mike's birthday cake this year was a Lemon-Blueberry, Lemon-Raspberry Cake (two layers of blueberry, one raspberry) with a Zesty Lemon Frosting, stolen from Pinterest and modified slightly.  Super tasty stuff, and a really nice summer cake option (I wasn't sure about lemon, it was Mike's request, but it's good!)!

We're ready for a fun weekend in Indiana this weekend, after a quick visit with my Daddy tonight (he's in Nashville for work) and Mike's birthday tomorrow! 

Here are some pictures, I've been slacking on taking pictures AND blogging, what can I say?!

Not sure if we've let our excitement out enough yet, but at 22 weeks we are REALLY, REALLY excited about our little Girl Mahoney on the way!!!!!  Only right that I get payback for what I did to my parents growing up, right?! ;-) 

So much to be excited and thankful for lately! :-)
