A year ago last April we visited our friends who live in the DC area. They sent us home with some hostas from their front yard and we planted them in our backyard. They grew really well last year and then died off in the winter. Well, this spring they returned with a surprise! Not only did they grow beautiful green leaves like last year, but they also grew pretty purple blooms! It's as if the plants knew that in order to be in our backyard they had to be purple. The trumpet flowers are really pretty and we hope they last a long time. So neat!

Garden Update

We have tomatoes, grapes, basil, red bell peppers, cucumbers and zucchini growing in our garden right now. Everything has taken off and a couple of our tomatoes are almost ready. The roma grape tomatoes look like they'll be the first to ripen and I can't wait to try one!

We also have some Washington Navel oranges sprouting. They're not anywhere close to being ready, but at least they're starting to look like oranges.

37 Weeks!

Today my pregnancy officially hit full-term. About 3 weeks (give or take) to go! I should have taken the photo AFTER I got my hair done, but of course I didn't think about that until later.
