OH the joys of pregnancy. The first trimester weeks 1- 13. The first few weeks of course you have no clue and life goes on as usual. Then the excitement with the test and telling your close loved ones. The first month & a half were a breeze. The only symptom I could tell was I was super sleepy and could fall asleep anywhere. Then came the middle of the 2nd month and 3rd month. ROUGH city. I think I threw up every morning for 3 weeks straight. Brushing my teeth became a chore which still is for some reason it makes me nauseous now.

I have realized that baby Hall hates anything pork. First found that out at Christmas dinner when I took a bite into the Christmas ham. Not having any of that. So no breakfast food for me for the next few months. Morning Sickness kicked in full force. Then I got Strep throat and the dreaded flu! My husband is a saint. He took such great care of me! I had to go to the ER 3 times in 10 days.

The great thing about the first trimester is hearing that heartbeat for the first time and seeing that little jellybean on the ultrasound. The future is bright! Now on to the second trimester and seeing what gender our little jellybean is!


First Ultrasound 

Dec 28th… To say I was nervous would be an understatement!! It still didn’t feel real to me. Dont get me wrong I had pregnancy symptoms. Over Christmas was super nauseous and sick for the first time. Before that I felt fine was just a little more tired. My Appt wasn’t until 3:30 that day. My mind raced all day what if this isnt real , what if something is wrong, what if I lose the baby. Anxiety out the wazoo…. Checked in early weighed and I had actually lost 3 pds . Dalton got there. I was 90 to nothing but he ALWAYS calms me down. Me & Dalton right before : 

The midwife came in which is an old friend of mine. She scanned my tummy first. She said there is a baby in there and I can see the heart beating. All my worries went away. Couldnt get a great pic so we had to do the vaginal ultrasound. Then it popped up. OMG you guys I was in love at first site. No idea what any of it was but it was magical. Had tears in my eyes. Dalton grabbed ny hand and it all just became so real. Seen our baby and heard its heartbeat (171bpm) . I didn’t know you can actually see the heart beating on the screen. Found out I wasnt as far along as I had thought. Our new due date is Aug 5th. 

Submitted our scans to the gender experts. They do the ramzi, nub & skull theories. I have to wait till 12 weeks for the nub & skull theory. But the ramzi theory which is where your baby is located in the uterus said : 

Which they are all just THEORIES… We are happy either way.. 

OHH  Baby 

We are pregnant!!! So many emotions and thoughts as we found out this news. I knew from the get go I wanted to document everything to show our child one day. Before I get started I know many people have struggled and are struggling with having a precious baby. Believe me I know I was one of them. For you guys hang in there , the lord works in mysterious ways. I truley do believe in God’s timing. I first had an inkling the Monday of Thanksgiving. My period had been pretty consistent after taking medicine to get it back in June 2017. It never came that Monday so I took a test. It was very faint but it said pregnant.  I thought no way because it was so light. 

So I waited a couple days then took another one. It was the same thing. So thanksgiving night Dalton & I took a trip to walgreens. I splurged for the digital test so there was no reading between the lines… It was late and I was going to take it in the morning. Oh and my mom was,staying the night that night because she was visiting for Thanksgiving. 4:00 am rolled around and I had to pee. Dalton snoring away I go pee and take the test. The digital test is like a little computer. It loads 3 lines then says pregnant or not pregnant.  There I stood at 4am standing over that test then it said Pregnant !!!! My life changed forever!! Of course I had to go wake Dalton up and he just hugged me so tight and was so happy. 

So before we found out for sure, We decided to tell our parents at Christmas. I had this cute onesie picked out they could unwrap. Well that went out the door . We told them both that Friday…. I went Monday to the dr and they confirmed it. It still didnt feel real. They scheduled my first ultrasound for 12/28 a month away!!

Thank you for reading!! 

First time for everything

Those of you who know me know I love country boys. Exactly why I married one! You would think by now that I would have been hunting. I must admit I did go “snip” hunting when I was around 15. Hmmm maybe thats why I havent been back. Lol. So Dalton(hubby) asks me what I want to do Sunday for our last day before Deer Season <rifle season> begins…. Hmm let me think. Lets go hunting.  Ok so most of you must be thinking dang Kane really wants to hunt. Wrong…. I wanted to take pictures & be outside it was a gorgeous day. But It was also a plus getting to see my hubby do something he loves. So lets see first things first you have to shower with no scent shampoo/bodywash. Notice anything missing Conditioner? Lord my hair was a nightmare. I finally got the brush through it and just braided it to calm down the frizz.  Dalton has,since bought me shampoo & conditioner maybe I complained a little too much. Then on to scent free deodorant & no makeup. Thank god the deers arent judging me lol. My outfit consisted of mens pants from walmart & camo shirt. Not flattering . Thank goodness he already put a ring on it. Then head out to get the gear. I never knew how much stuff you need. Hunting is not cheap. Get to the woods and walk to his spot. He sets up a blind for me and sets me up with snacks & a chair. Let me tell you I was in heaven. Just hanging out snacking & chilling UNTIL…. My chair fell backwards and I couldnt catch myself. Fell onto the blind & Dalton had to come get me up. He pulled the chair out from underneath me then I rolled over into a bunch of thorns in my ass. OMG I knew,I had aged I felt like I needed A life alert necklace!! Once back upright we went back to being quiet & looking for deers. Then a doe in heat came along. A buck was right behind her. It was so pretty.  Dalton get a shot because he didnt want to spook it and couldnt get his bow up quick enough. Needless to say my heart was full and my ass was bruised. But I loved every bit of it. ❤❤❤

Allie Grace ❤

Happy 15th Birthday Allie G… In my eyes you will always be that little 5 year old girl that I first met. That loved spending the night with Sav and I. That asked for a toothbrush dispenser you seen on an infomercial for your birthday. That would walk around in our heels dancing to beyonce single ladies. Im so proud of the young lady that you are becoming. Love you so much sis … 

Weekend Round-Up…

Whats a blog without a random post….Weekends are always my favorite. Didn’t do a whole lot of anything this weekend but thought I would post about it. 🙂 Watched a few movies.. Yes I said a few… Did a photo shoot with one of my dearest friends and her beautiful daughters…. Hung out with the fiancee. Now watching the Emmy’s listening to rain on our tin roof… Here are my random thoughts…


We went with Dalton’s parents to watch this movie this weekend. Let me tell you I always tend to go toward movies that can happen in real life. This movie kept my attention the entire time.( Didn’t get on my phone once). It has the 3 m’s I require in a movie. Murder, Mystery & Men.. 5 stars from me….


One word for this movie: Pointless. The plot was never explained and then it just ended. Do not waste your time on this one. 0 stars…..


Our friends recommended this movie to us. It was hilarious!! And it is not just a chick flick Dalton liked it too. Such a funny movie watch it!


Watching the Emmy’s and I am so in LOVE with Jessica Biel’s dress.

Here are a couple of pictures from my photo shoot this weekend.


Reese Waldrop …Love her little expressions


My longtime friend Kendra. She is a supermom and mom to 3 little girls; the third due this December. Is she not gorgeous….

My friend Sydnee had her bachelorette this weekend. Although I didnt get to go I know she had a blast and enjoyed all pictures. Her wedding date is Sept 30th and Mine is Oct 7th……

That is life., Random AF.. Thank you for reading…
