My Life in Lists: If I had one MILLION dollars

This week I'm linking up with Marci - If These Walls Could Speak and Kelli - Team Gilbert for their new weekly link up - My Life in Lists. 

I dream about this daily - what would I do with a million dollars? 
How amazing would it be to come into a million dollars one day?  
I guess it would only be amazing if I came into it anonymously. 
With my million dollars this is how I would spend it: 

1. Pay off our STUDENT LOANS
We literally could afford a nice house in what we pay monthly for our student loans. 
The worst part about it all - I'm not even using my degree. 

 2. Build our dream home.


3. Be able to be a stay at home mom - Michelle Duggar style.
AKA have lots of babies and be able to afford them!
I would also want to be able to adopt 2 little mixed babies from the US too. 

4. Travel: 



5. Invest it so I can make millions more!!

Week 25

How far along: 25 Weeks 
Food Comparison: Zucchini
Gender: Boy!! 
Weight gain: +14 lbs 
Maternity clothes: Some. I hate spending money on them so I've been on the lookout for stretchy dresses/skirts at places like Ross, Gordmans, TJMAXX, Forever21 - the discount stores! 
Stretch marks: Not yet. Praying they don't ever come.
Belly button in or out: Half in - half out. 
Sleep: So, so. I'm starting to get hot all the time (expect at work in my freezing cold building) but I'm mostly sleeping out of the covers. I wake up for the occasional potty break or if I'm hot. 
Best moment last week: Making more progress in the nursery. We officially have things hung on the wall (more to come) and I completed Kingston's crib sheet and skirt! 

CT wasn't really feeling the crib skirt because it 'clashes'.
What does he know?! The whole nursery has so many patterns which was what I was going for. I love it! 

Worst moment last week: TMI: My tummy gets upset way easy these days. And when it's upset there's no stopping it. Let me tell you - it's so sexy having to rush to the bathroom when I start to get the gurgles. Just keepin' it real. :)
Miss anything: Margarita's and being non-itchy. My skin was never sensitive until pregnancy. 
Movement: Yes. I love it! 
Cravings: Sour cream & wheat thins dipped in cinnamon applesauce! :)
Queasy or sick: No. 
Looking forward to: Only having a 3 day work week this week!
Prayer Request: This week Kingston really starts adding some fat to his little body. I pray that he looks just like his daddy in this department. 
Look at home sweet CT was as a babe. So brown and so chunky!

Week 24

How far along: 24 Weeks 
Food Comparison: Corn
Gender: Boy!! 
Weight gain: +13 lbs 
Maternity clothes: Some. Thankfully most of my pre pregnancy clothes were the flow-y type tops that I can still pull off. I've also found tons of cheap maxi dresses at Forever21 ($10) that I'm belting and wearing the crap out of.
Stretch marks: No - not yet. Fingers crossed they stay away.
Belly button in or out: It's making it's way to an outie.  
Sleep: I sleep good until my 230a potty break and then I toss and turn the rest of the night. I then wake up with sore sides of my hips. It's getting brutal.
Best moment last week: Christian taking second in two of his NCAA brackets and third in one. $$ Cha-Ching $$  Money in the bank! 
Worst moment last week: realizing that EVERYTHING in pregnancy grows. Not just your belly and bobbies ... but everything. 
Miss anything: My pants buttoning.
Movement: Yes. I love it! 
Cravings: Sour cream. 
Queasy or sick: No. 
Looking forward to: Upcoming showers. We have quite a few on the calendar but I just got my first official invitation today. 
Prayer Request: This week I pray that Kingston continues to grow inside me until I'm well into my 3rd trimester. It's crazy to think that I've made it to the point in this pregnancy where I could have him and he could survive (with a lot of help). We have 16 more weeks little man - lets make the best of it!

Week 23

How far along: 23 Weeks -- I skipped last weeks update . . .  whoops! 
Food Comparison: Large Mango
Gender: Boy!! 
Weight gain: +12 lbs 
Maternity clothes: A few pieces. I'm mostly wearing regular clothing and belting almost everything!
Stretch marks: No - still slathering up with my belly butter!
Belly button in or out: Half way in half way out. I give it 2 weeks and I'll have a full blown outie. I did finally decide to take the belly button ring out. 
Sleep: So so.
Best moment last week: Announcing our name . . . Christian couldn't hold it in anymore. Kingston Christopher! 
And really deep cleaning our apartment. I'm talking 
Worst moment last week: The work week was the slowest. Friday couldn't come soon enough. 
Miss anything: Sleeping through the night and not seeing my veins. Everywhere I look on my body - my veins are bright and extremely visible. It grosses me out! 
Movement: So many. Sometimes I forget I'm pregnant till he gives me a nice little jab. 
Cravings: Chicken & a biscuit crackers and dill pickle chips.  
Queasy or sick: Some movements make my stomach drop - like we've just driven over a steep hill. It's weird. But really I'm feeling great. 
Looking forward to: Aynslee Lou's 1st birthday this weekend.
Prayer Request: This week I will pray for Kingston's future friends. I pray that he finds good Christian friends that are nothing but positive influences. The world is scary these days - and who our children hang out with can really impact their lives. Thankfully I have great Godly/Christian friends with kiddo's - so they will be forced to like each other and hang out!
