Life in the fast lane...

So, really I haven't been that busy. I just haven't been in the blogging mood. However, yesterday, my husband said he doesn't even check my blog anymore because I never post. My most loyal reader got the quits on me. So, here it is, a long awaited post for those of you who are still around.

  • We spent 10 days in AZ with my family. It was fun, but both too long and too short at the same time. There wasn't enough time to do everything we wanted, but more than enough time for me to deal with life outside of our normal routines.
  • Part of the reason I was missing the routine is because we found out we are expecting baby #2 this winter! Most moms know that the first trimester is not that fun and that was true for me. I am gladly regaining my energy and appetite. 
  • Summer finally arrived in MT. After a VERY rainy spring we are enjoying the sunshine. We have our salsa garden planted and a few strawberries for snacking. I even killed a snake yesterday in our yard so I wouldn't have to worry about it slithering by while we are trying to enjoy a relaxing picnic in the yard. I am a friend of nature, but snakes need to reside in another part of nature - not MY yard! 
  • We are off to Conrad for some independence day festivities and family gatherings. I love me some Rodeo and can't wait to watch the cowpokes. 
Gotta run and hang out with my super awesome little man. Have a wonderful 4th as you celebrate the greatness of our nation and the sacrifices made to make it so. 

P.S - If you are in the northwest Montana area, remember to check out BSBC for some summer camp fun. Pray for them as camps are in full swing! 


  1. are you SURE your husband is the most loyal reader?!? kidding. i do keep checking back. love the update! good job on killing that snake. i think i would've died of a heart attack seeing the snake... i hope you keep blogging (when in the mood, of course). glad you're finally feeling better, too! that 1st trimester can be a doozy.

  2. Congratulations!! How exciting that your family is expanding. :)

  3. Jesica! Another Swanson!?!?! How exciting. Warning... life with two is more than twice the work. Maybe it's just because mine are soooooo close in age. But it's really beautiful and fun and I don't remember what sleep is. :) SO happy for you!

  4. Congrats on baby #2. We loved becoming a family of four - I bet you will too. :)
