Project 12 // July

Project 12: A photo on the first day of every month

The above photo wasn't taken on July 1. This was after our birthday date! We went to PF Chang's for dinner. I wait all year for those lettuce wraps. After that we went and visited our friends in the hospital who just had their baby.

I rated this 3/5 on Goodreads. Check out my full review here.
Spark notes version: it was like, eh.


July was birthday month! Woo! Jordan's and my birthdays are one week apart. He turned 30, and I turned 29. I threw him a surprise birthday party! See pictures here.

This month I had my final baby shower. My church threw it for us, and it was the weekend Jordan returned from Nicaragua (see below), so my mom was still in town and able to come! It was really special, and we feel so loved. We love our church!

I did not announce this on the blog for obvious reasons, but Jordan left me for a week to travel to Nicaragua. Every year a group from our church goes to a remote village to set up a medical clinic, do church services, and share the Gospel. Jordan and I went last year together, and I was sad to miss out. Jordan was nervous the baby would come while he was gone, but thankfully she stayed put.
My mom came and stayed with me for the week while Jordan was gone. While I went to work, she organized my house! She unpacked and hung things and basically did all the things I'd been avoiding. Thanks, Mom!

July was kind of crazy. It seemed to go slow and fast all at once. I mean, it's BABY MONTH now. Our baby will have an August birthday! And next month's Project 12 recap will have one very notable event.

  6. My husband and I tried to go to PF Chang's for our anniversary dinner a month or so before my first child was born. I was so hungry 'we' just couldn't wait for a table and ended up at a rather subpar restaurant nearby instead. Fifteen years later and I still haven't eaten at a PF Chang's. Boo hoo, we don't even live near one now!

    Best of luck for the final countdown!

  9. Yay baby month! I was so upset that Emily was born in July because I do not like rubies, but I can handle peridots. She was 9 days late, and all I could think was "I could have held out for 2 more days!" Lol, so weird.

  12. Yay for baby month!!!! I'm glad your Mom came and stayed with you. I'm sure that was a blessing for both of you and I hope she was able to offer you encouragement and nerve calmingness or something like that because that is what Mom's do =)

  14. Holy Baby BUMp! (See what I did there?! Haha.) And smart not to announce Jordan leaving until after he returned - I always think I need to be better about safety things like that! (a.k.a. Maybe not Instagramming so many pictures when I'm on vacation and the apartment is available for thieves......)
