Thank YOU & other things!

First I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the precious comments you left me in regards to our video!!!!!!  You all are so sweet.  We actually made that video to show to our college group at church since Tim is the college director.  We loved it so much that we just decided to use that video to announce it to everyone!  haha!  It was super cheesy….but that is who we are! :)  We know the two most talented sisters that filmed and edited the video for us.  Thank you Allison and Linds!  We love you!!!!!!!  So, if you haven’t seen this video yet….you need to go watch it and things will make more sense to you. 

So, everyone is wondering…..how far along are you?

I am 15 weeks with baby Shepard coming in May! 

WE COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It is such a miracle and an amazing blessing to be carrying a child in my womb.  Tim and I have quite the story of God’s power and amazing faithfulness that I will be sharing with you very soon.  Just to wet your palette….we were told it would be very difficult for us to have children and we tried for almost 3 years….with many speed bumps along the way.  I can’t wait to share our story with you in hopes to bring God glory and help those that might be going through the same thing.  I promise it is coming soon! 

Also….I know many of you are wondering….did I get my earrings out? Well, sadly NO!  We actually have been too busy to work on it.  And I don’t want Tim rushing with a pair of pliers touching my ears! 

I need to do a little housekeeping actually.  I posted here about my search for a really good concealer.  Well, I still have a really good brand from Sephora on my Christmas list I am wanting to try.  But until then, I have found a few good drugstore brands I wanted to share with you.

This is Revlon ColorStay Blemish Concealer.  I bought this for the little spots on my face that crop up from time to time.  I really do like how it covers and have been very pleased with this product.  I have tried similar products from Cover Girl and I like this one better.

This is Neutrogena 3 in 1 Concealer for eyes.  This came by recommendation from several blog ladies.  I LOVE this!  It is your concealer, eye cream and spf!  I love how this product goes on and it really does cover and brighten my eyes!  The first day I wore it, I thought I looked so much more awake and fresh.  I really recommend this one to you!  I still want to try the fancy brand from Sephora….but like I have told you….I am a beauty product junkie! :)

Well, I think that is it for today!  Thank you again for all your sweet words!  I am so thankful to be on this beautiful journey! 

Happy Monday!

Amanda

What a blessing this child is! Enjoy every moment of your pregnancy which I am sure you will! It is such an incredible journey. No woman should take her fertility for granted. There are many out there who go through the heart break of trying with no avail. That is something I need to give more thanks to God for (and I will right now). Thanks for sharing that with us and I can't wait to read more about your journey!
