Plain Pursuit by Beth Wiseman

Plain Pursuit by Beth Wiseman, I absolutely love this book, I read it in less than 1 day!! I’ve always been drawn to Amish stories, I’ve never read any books by Beth Wiseman, but after Plain Pursuit, I’d love to read others that she’s written.
I loved how Beth took a tragedy and turned it around for the characters and they all learned to forgive each other and accept them back into their lives. She also stayed really close to what Amish life is really like and kept it real in her story. The romance intermingled was sweet and lovely. I was drawn into the story and just couldn’t put it down until I had finished it.
I can’t wait to read more books by Beth Wiseman and will be passing this one around to anyone who loves reading about the Amish as much as I do.

24 weeks preggo and it's a BOY!!!! :D

Wow, hard to believe I'm almost in my 3rd trimester!!! Hard to believe that I only had 9 weeks left when I was prego with the girls. It's going to be different to actually go the full 40 weeks.
My appt went well, so far I've gained 11 lbs, blood pressure is great, yay, baby boy's heart rate is good.
Lil boy is active, at times, but makes me think he'll be a mellow baby, which would be nice. ;)
I've been having stomach issues this time and am doing everything I'm supposed to, but it's not helping. :( I've been snacking a lot and making myself smoothies, which gives me the nutrition I need, but is easy on my stomach. :) I've also been drinking a lot of 'murphy' tea, pink lemonade and water. :)

So far we've gotten the nursery accent wall painted, glider put up, borrowed the crib from Jenny and got it put up, too. I found a dresser/changing table at a yard sale for $10, it needs to be painted, runners and knobs, but hey, the price was right. Right now, my dad's making a removable base for it, it's too short and not tall enough for diaper changes. I've also been garage saleing this year and have found some clothes, so far.

giveaway's I'm hoping to win ;)
