Being a Mommy Rocks.

Mother's Day was a happy one! I am one lucky lady to not only have the best mom in the world, but also to be mom to the most amazing little girl (and one on the way)!

Alana made this flower for me at school...such a cute idea! Her teacher took a picture of her "holding flowers" and then put these artificial flowers in her hand. I know this will be one of those things I keep forever and ever!

She also gave me a sweet card and some homemade art, just like she does every other day :) I am gonna have to rent a storage unit soon, just to house all of her little projects she makes. No one could ever say that she is not creative!

My mom surprised me with a beautiful bracelet, too! The picture does not do it justice, but it's really hard to take a picture of it! It is a Trollbeads bracelet! I was not familiar with the story of Trollbeads, but now that I have been schooled (ha) I think they are really cool. If you are interested click here to learn. Right now, I have 6 charms on my bracelet...The first one (from the left) is the faith, hope and charity charm. Next is my birthstone. The 3rd charm is called "endless". Next is a pearl which is Alana's birthstone. The 5th charm has a J with hearts (for Justin) and last but not least is the "baby girl" charm. It's pink with a little stone, hard to see here. All of these charms are meaningful, and I love my bracelet! And I have lots of room to add more!

The past 5 years have been special ones on this day, but this year I had one more reason to be excited and feel blessed! It's so nice to know that later on this year, I will be "Mommy" to one more.

Most everyone already knows that the newest Portas is a little girl, but most of you don't know what her name is!

Drumroll, please...

Avery Caroline Portas

And because Alana was rooting for a different name, she plans to call her "Sunny" :) I think it's kind of funny that she has taken it upon herself to name her baby sister...but I also think it is cute, so I won't be discouraging it!

I have definitely felt better this past month, as far as the pregnancy is concerned. Justin has started his job as a security guard for a federal building downtown, and although his hours are long and somewhat monotonous, we are thankful that he is employed!

Alana has really come around as far as school is concerned, too. We went through a couple of rough weeks, where she didn't want to go to school. Now she loves it, as she is making more friends and finding her place back in Tennessee! She only has less than three weeks to go and she will be a big first grader! I can't believe it--where did the time go?!

All I know is that life is good...and being a mommy is even better :)

Kenzo is the latest to go. The Japanese label's owner, louis vuitton outlet Moet Hennessy, issued a statement Tuesday blaming Argentina's "complex economic context" for the closure of its louis vuitton outlet store on Oct. 10. Government trade restrictions kept Kenzo from importing its spring and summer Louis Vuitton Outlet M40143 lines, store employee Stella Christianopol said.
