63,244,800 seconds...

'God gave me you for the ups & downs. God gave me you for the days of doubt.'
63,244,800 seconds.
1,054,080 minutes.
17,568 hours.
732 days.
2 years.
This is how long I have been honoured to call myself Mrs. Scott. To know I am married to my best friend, my soul mate & the person I've dreamed of forever. 
Our wedding was beautiful, despite the unnecessary drama which I wish that I could go back & let go of... It was a day I should of focused solely on him & I and went 'fuck everyone else'... It was a day I shouldn't have worried about what others thought or the little things because they didn't matter then & they sure as hell don't matter now. All that mattered then & now is us. But enough of that...
Let's celebrate us!
In the last 2 years we have really learnt how strong we are, not only as individuals but as a couple. We have been through things that I wish on no one & while they may have tested our strength & made us a little weak temporarily, we are now stronger than ever. 
I know he loves me as much as I love him, which is a heck of a lot of love! 
I am very blessed to be married to such a kind & caring man who is so respectful of me. He truly is my best friend & is such an honourable person. He is really the best person I know. 
While we are cherishing our last few months of being 'just us', we can't wait for October. Our future is so exciting, with Rexy's due date creeping closer & closer we are just getting more & more excited about having our first baby, our beautiful daughter! I cannot wait for the day we become parents, I think this maybe the only day that will outshine our wedding day! 
I know Trent will be the most brilliant Father, he has such a kind heart & is so patient. He is going to be an awesome Dad! I am seriously just so excited about the next chapter of our lives.
I thank God so often for picking Trent for me.
Back in primary school when he was the grade below me I would've never thought that he would be the guy I marry. I barely knew him & I'm certain he didn't know who I was at all... Fast forward to me being 20 & moving home, working & living with our family friends & being introduced to this gorgeous guy. It was such a surreal time, I was trying to get my life on track after having a few shitty years. At that point I was a bit of a mess & I don't know what the hell he saw in me, but I am so glad he stuck around... A few months later we were living together, a few more months passed & we were engaged, we moved towns, houses, finally bought our own home & got married. 
I look back on our journey together & I dream of our future & I am just so, so grateful. I know I'm lucky, God picked me a great man & I couldn't be more happy with how my life has turned out. 
Today is our 2nd Wedding Anniversary, thank you so much God for blessing me with someone who is so wonderful & who I love so much & loves me in return, thank you.
Now for some photos! :) 
Where it all began!
Our gorgeous wedding, the day I married my handsome Trent....
And for those that are interested, this was the soundtrack to our wedding!

Pregnancy update week 21-24

Ok so I'm 24 weeks pregnant (well 25 tomorrow), I know I am a bit behind on the pregnancy vlogs/updates - sorry! Life has just been busy lately!
I filmed a pregnancy vlog just the other day discussing most of my symptoms, how I've been feeling etc, so if you would like to watch that check it out below or click HERE...
The only symptoms I forgot to mention in the video was I guess, sleep... Some nights I'm sleeping right through the night but others I just cannot sleep at all. I will be up tossing & turning, peeing and I even find myself getting really hot in the middle of the night. Ever since I purchased this giant body pillow from the Pregnancy Expo, it has helped my sleep tons! I did have just a straight body pillow, but I would still wake up in the middle of the night with aching hips. But this one is a lot better. 
My odd shaped pillow which I love...
Spooky loves it too!
Everything else I pretty much covered in the video, but since the video though I've noticed my morning sickness seems to be returning!! :( I've been unwell until about 2pm every day for the last few days... So that sucks, I have even thrown up a few times!! So nausea + reflux + heartburn = hell! Hopefully the vomiting & nausea is just a temporary thing & will leave again soon! 
Emotionally I am feeling good about everything, I am happy that I can feel Rexy moving more & more everyday. It is such a cool feeling & it puts my mind at ease that she is ok when I feel her flipping around or punching & kicking. I am so happy to be getting closer to meeting her.
I know I didn't add a belly shot into the video - sorry! But for those that asked, here is one from me at 23 weeks. I don't think I've changed that much since then! 
I hope you enjoyed my pregnancy vlog, if you have any questions please leave them below in a comment, tweet me (@bella_k) or Facebook me HERE. 
Thanks so much for stopping by!

An unproductive Monday & am I nesting?!!?

So today was meant to be a productive Monday. 
I am on a roll lately with productive days, for the past 3 days I've been cleaning & organising my house, 3 days of cleaning would surely produce a sparkly perfect house, well not to me. Unfortunately my energy levels are fairly crappy at the moment, so I do a job & have to rest - repeat. So everything takes twice as long! And yes, the house is pretty much perfectly clean - normally I would be happy with how it is, but in my current state of mind I just find more & more things that I need to disinfect, throw away, sort through & scrub. It is absolute insanity! 
For example, yesterday I thought I would wipe down the wall near where the cat food bowls are with some sugar soap & hot water (my cats are weirdos & like to scratch the wall near where they eat - who knows why, so that leaves little paw prints). That turned into me washing down the walls of half the kitchen, all the cupboard doors & then removing the stove and scrubbing the floor underneath that (I am ashamed to admit it, but cleaning under my stove is something that may happen once a year - like I vacuum around & under it as far as I can regularly, but I rarely pull it away from the wall) I am not over exaggerating when I say I think Spook was stockpiling cat biscuits under the stove for the zombie apocalypse! But now the floor under the stove is super clean. I had to force myself to stop washing down the walls yesterday because it was getting late in the afternoon & it is Winter and if I kept cleaning I figured the walls wouldn't have dried properly, so the next sunny/hot day we get I assume I will continue on my wall cleaning rampage for the entire house... 
And that is what I meant by today was meant to be a productive Monday. I was hoping for sunshine & heat and instead I woke up to grey & dark skies, lots of rain & freezing cold! So, it is 1pm and I may or may not be still be in my pyjamas & snuggly dressing gown (I have no intention of changing either!)... I think I probably wore myself out over the past few days, I seriously slept from about midnight to 10am!! I think it was a combination of cold weather & being so tired. Sleeping has become so difficult lately, it takes me ages to get to sleep because of heartburn & reflux and I am waking up every 2 hours to swap sides or to go pee. So to have 10 hours of uninterrupted sleep, I am so grateful - thank you God! 
And I was planning on also filming a pregnancy update today (because I am like a month behind!!), but a grey, dreary day = shit lighting = no video - sorry! 
So I thought I would blog, but I really don't have a topic in mind - so this was fairly rambley... Trent is currently sleeping (he has night shift tonight) & I am so tempted to go lay back down & nap but I think if I sleep anymore I may not sleep tonight! 
So I think I maybe in the 'nesting' phase, maybe? That is the only logical explanation for obsessive cleaning. I am disappointed though, I was hoping nesting would involve me having the urge to create a giant nest in the centre of my lounge room. (I joke, but Trent & I joke about this a lot, that he will come home one day and all the linen in the entire house will have been used to create this giant nest and I'm sitting in the middle with like a twig in my mouth!)
So I just googled 'Pregnancy nesting' & I found this, which is fairly accurate to what Trent & I joke about! (If I happen to have any arty & talented friends/readers please feel free to sketch me up a quick image of me in a giant nest & I will love you forever!) 
But anyway, I should stop writing whatever pops into my mind, it is probably super boring to you all! I hope you are all having a fantastic Monday, mine has been nice, unproductive but still nice! 
Thank you for reading...
