tis the season.

first off...the lack of blogging. i am very aware of it. i am working on some posts that have a bit more depth than what i am sharing today. but they are mostly just in my head and in my heart. 
so for today since it is just that time of year...how about a sweet giveaway? you can keep it for yourself or give it as a christmas gift. 

***
sweet friend, crystal faye is back and this time she is giving away one of her monogrammed tervis  tumblers. not lying when i tell you i love it. i use it everyday. no joke. it holds over 22 oz of liquid and i am a sucker for drinking from something that i think is cute. in turn i am drinking way more water than i usually do. strange but maybe some of you get that. if you hate water diet coke is a great alternative or anything really...i am just shying away from dc during my pregnancy.
also, if you are a person who likes a straw when they drink do not worry bed bath and beyond sells tervis straws in a pack of 6 for $3.99. i now use mine with a straw and i love it.

how about a belly picture to end this little post?
35 weeks. we are getting close. you will notice from the picture that her nursery looks identical to how it was several weeks back. its true. no progress has been made...yet.

ava was about to jump off the stool while i was taking this picture. but decided to still use it. 
the belly is all people care about anyways.
