Anniversary Trip and Baby update

Quentin and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary on Monday. Hard to believe it's been a whole year since we said our vows. A lot has happened in this first year of marriage! Quentin went from working a night-shift job and a day job, to working just one day job (a job doing what he likes best - landscape design). We bought an SUV. We paid off all credit card and loan dept, so we're dept free. (Hooray!) We took 3 big road trips to visit family. I got pregnant. We adopted our 2nd kitty, Tucker. And we bought our first house.
What a busy year!

We celebrated by spending a night away in Tryon, NC. The bed and breakfast where we spent the night was the same one we stayed at on our wedding night last year. The breakfast there is really amazing, and the staff are great. We had fun exploring downtown Tryon the day we were there. The town has some pretty cool shops and antique stores. Quentin was sweet and bought me a pair of earrings as an anniversary gift. :)

The log cabin on the right is where we stayed this weekend. The cottage on the left side is where we stayed on our wedding night last year. Pretty cool!

Cool stone clock tower downtown.

 Tryon is a cute town. :)

Obligatory selfie. We've been happily married for one year!

It's a bike rack that's shaped like a bike.

Also while we were there, we visited Pearson's Falls. It's only a 0.25 mile walk/hike up to the waterfall, so it was easy enough for me.

And, on our way home, we stopped to play bowling. We've been wanting to do something fun like that together, so our anniversary vacation was the perfect excuse. Quentin won both games we played, but I still had fun. :-)

Overall, it was the best way to spend our anniversary weekend. I loved getting away with just Quentin, able to relax and enjoy time together.

So, now I'm 29 weeks pregnant. Only 11 more to go. Crazy.
I took my glucose tolerance test last week. My results came back normal - no gestational diabetes! But I had a few other things tested, and my iron levels are low. That would explain why my muscles have been more tired than usual the past few weeks. I ordered an iron supplement, and it should come in the mail soon.

Baby girl is moving a lot, and has a strong heartbeat of 150. She moves so much sometimes, that I can actually see my belly moving. It's kinda surreal. But it's one of my favorite things.

I've enjoyed people asking me questions about my baby, now that I clearly have a baby bump. It's fun sharing my excitement with strangers. Quentin and I are going to our first birthing class tonight. Not sure what to expect, but it probably will be helpful.

Here's another belly picture. It's inside the cabin we stayed at this past weekend.

Hope everyone has a blessed Easter weekend!
