This week...

Golfing at Crossroads Par 3 with friends.
For some of us it was our first time. Others had a little more experience on the greens. Either way we had tons of fun and enjoyed the super nice weather. It was a beautiful day. The sun was shining and it was about 70 degrees. I actually got a little sun tan :)

More pics of the golfing gang.

As you can see there were seven of us (Brett,Kristen, Jake, Kara, Matt, me and Eric), 3 of which were beginners. I can only imagine what the people behind us must have been thinking. It ended up taking us 2+ hours to get through 9 holes.

Ashlea Tees Off

I almost look like I know what I'm doing. I actually shot one under Eric on one hole, but he definitely came out on top when all was said and done.

What to eat for breakfast....???? Mmmmm!

So just to fill everyone in incase your wondering....

Is there morning sickness? Is she eating a lot? Is she having any cravings or aversions to food? Is Eric making any late night trips to the grocery store?

I am doing quite well and am happy to report that I am experiencing some morning sickness, but not as bad as some people that's good. I am eating all the time. Not really because I am hungry, but because it keeps the nausea at bay. In the beginning I really craved bread sticks and quickly realized after sending Eric on a run one evening that they had to be Pizza Hut bread sticks. My Mom finds that kinda funny since she often ate at Pizza Hut while pregnant with me. I'm eating a lot more variety now than I was a couple of weeks ago, but still can't bring myself to eat green salad. I think I overdid the spinach salads just after finding out I was pregnant and now the thought of them...well we better change the subject :) I am not sending Eric out on any late night excursions for weird foods, but he has been the master toast maker. He will often bring me toast before I get out of bed to ward off any yucky feelings that seem to arrive just after getting up. Grits have been another favorite and Eric has become quiet the pro at making them. This morning I enjoyed a wonderful breakfast before church that included pancakes topped with fresh strawberries, hash browns, and eggs. Mmmmmm yummy! What I eat or don't eat takes up a lot of my time these days. :)

Me and My cute cousin Carter!

What is might be like.... We were able to babysit my little cousin Carter over the weekend. It was a ton of fun. Hats off to Nick and Amanda...he was such an easy baby, so happy and fun! He is crawling and cruising and getting into everything. He kept us on our toes, but we loved it.

Hi Ashlea! Its been awhile! Congratulations from one pregnant girl to another! I'm about 18 weeks and we get to find out the sex next week. I'm glad you can stomach that yummy breakfast, the only thing I could normally eat for breakfast without it coming back up during my 1st trimester was toast w/ preanut butter, and it got pretty old after 3 months . . . hope you continue to have good luck in that area.
