4 Things People Say when they find out You’re Pregnant

It’s funny the things people say when they find out that you’re pregnant. Usually it starts with a, “Congratulations! That’s so exciting!” or something very similiar. It then progresses to these phrases that might be helpful to hear before you’re actually pregnant.

1. You guys are going to be great parents.

2. I wouldn’t trade my kids for the world, some days are tougher than others but at the end of the day you still love them.

3. Pick your battles.

4. (If this  is your first…) Enjoy this time with eachother before the baby comes.


So.. all of these things are great. They make you feel good about this little bundle that’ll be arriving before you know it. But… wouldn’t these have all been very helpful to hear before you get pregnant? And as for number 4.. shouldn’t you be enjoying the time with your spouse before you get pregnant? Not that I’m not grateful to hear things such as these, I just find it funny.

Did you hear similair advice when you told people you were expecting?

We’re expanding the farm!


We’re expanding on our farm! Our little bundle of joy is due to arrive on November 10th. We are overjoyed and feeling extremely blessed that God has given us the privilege in molding the heart of this little being.

So this is why it’s been so quiet around here! It was so hard for me to keep the secret and I just have been feeling like I needed to spend my time elsewhere besides the blog.

I’m in the last week of my first trimester and have been feeling good for the most part. Recently I’ve been getting tired pretty easily, and the first couple weeks were rough as far as being nauseous. But otherwise, I’ve had a very smooth pregnancy with zero complications.

I haven’t really started showing yet, but this already proud momma is looking forward to sporting the bump for the next 6 months.

Andrew has been absolutely wonderful thus far, and is already a protective, proud dad. He was so excited to share our news with the world. He’s already been day dreaming about when this little bundle can accompany him on the farm.

We’re asking for prayers that the pregnancy continues to go well, and that I enjoy every part of the process of growing a little person.

Thank you all so much for your love and support over the period of my blog. Some of you have been with me from the very beginning and you have no idea how much that all means to me.

Love to all- Nicole

Being a Young Farmer- Is it Worth it?

I feel like I have a lot of confessions on my blog. I think maybe that I have a mental block saying, oh this is a safe place to do that. But, in all reality, I have thousands of you reading my confessions so… Ha. It’s not really that secret or safe. But, I have […]

You know what goes perfectly with a hot cup of coffee on a Saturday morning? I’ll tell you… A homemade bakery donut. That’s right.. I said homemade. Can you beat that? My MIL has made these donuts for years and the story behind them is interesting. There was a bakery in Oklahoma where these donuts […]

Early Saturday Mornings

My view from my sink.

There’s something peaceful about awaking in the early hours of a Saturday. I used to look forward to Saturday mornings for catching up on sleep, often sleeping until 6:30 or 7. (Funny how that’s considered sleeping in my life right now!) This morning I woke up much earlier to make a lucious chocolate cream pie. […]
