My hanging garden!

I have been wanting to buy one of those Topsy Turvy tomato planters for a long time so... I bought one. Today I went and got my tomato plant and set it up. Here goes nothing. I will post some pictures if I get some tomato's.

Has anyone ever used one of these before?

A Worthy Cause

There are things that happen every day that I think we all take for granted. Many of which happen inside of our own bodies. Our hearts beat, our lungs breathe, and something we don't often think about happens, our kidneys function.

The kidney participates in whole-body homeostasis, regulating acid-base balance, electrolyte concentrations, extracellular fluid volume, and regulation of blood pressure.
- Chronic kidney disease is a public health problem affecting 26 million Americans
- Risk factors include diabetes, high blood pressure and family history
- One in nine American adults have kidney disease and most don’t know it
- 92,000 people are waiting for organ transplants
- 17 people die each day waiting for an organ transplant

On May 22 I will be participating in the Muskegon Area Kidney walk to raise money for the National Kidney Foundation.

The National Kidney Foundation's Kidney Walk is a fun, inspiring, community fundraiser which calls attention to the prevention of kidney disease and the need for organ donation. It's also an opportunity for patients, family, friends and businesses to come together to support the millions of Americans with chronic kidney disease.

Please help me by sponsoring me in my walk.

Baby Registry

Josh and I have been busy the last few weeks. We had a goal to finish our baby registry's, and I am happy to say that we did it. Josh and I did our Target registry first since that one did not seem as big to do. It was so fun to look at all the cute little baby things there is out there. Target is my favorite store and I have always wanted to do my baby registry there!:)

Then last week my best friend Heather helped me to do the big one Babies 'R' Us. The store is huge and there are so many baby things. It was great to have an experienced mother along to help.

It was fun to pick out all the cute little things, it is making this pregnancy more real each day.

Josh and I feel so blessed and excited for her to come!

A few weeks ago Josh and I went to Chicago to visit our friends the Hoving's. They just had a new little boy named Owen. It was so good to see all of them.
Since Josh and I both had a few extra days off we decided to stay down town Chicago as well the next day. We had a good time spending time shopping and going out to eat. Which was great because I have been feeling much better. I like to eat food again! Whooo :)


Josh and I at the Sear's tower.

Good view of Chicago from the 103rd floor of the Sear's tower
