So Excited!!!

OMG - I can't believe it! 
So I have been tracking my page views for the last 3 weeks or so and they are just growing, growing!!! Check this out!! (I know the photos aren't great, I'd love to learn how to screen shot and then save the photo to crop :) )

On 9/11, I had 6,000 views, just about 2 weeks after my 1 year Blogiversary!

On 9/24 (just short of 2wks later), I went up 200 views!!

and Today, on 10/3 (1wk3dys later) I now have 6,403 (before writing this post!)
UPDATE: 6,420 views just after posting!!! 

I would LOVE it if I could get up to 6,500 views by 10/11 (8 days) - that would be 500 in 1 month!!! AHH as of now I was averaging 200/month (6,000 views in 12 months). Wow this is crazy! 
OMG UPDATE: 9:06am on Friday - 6,510 views!!! I just can't believe it! 

Plus my Twitter followers are sky rocketing! Yesterday I posted about getting to 300 and today I'm already at 329 (as of 11:45am)!
I have been doing a lot of Bloggy Moms hops! This week was for Twitter - hence all my new followers :) and last week I did one for Facebook and the Blog! It is such an awesome feeling to be growing like this - and people are reading my words! 
Woah wait a minute, that's kinda scary too!

Ok, Now that I've gone a bit crazy, let's get a baby update! We hit 20 weeks!!! Woo hoo
We don't have an appt for another 2+ weeks though, which makes me stir crazy! I can't wait to get them closer together!

We have received our first round of gifts too!!!

I just found out, officially, that the playard is from Grandma Greta!! The nursing pillow & cover is from my amazing Cousin, who is 22 weeks herself! It is so exciting to be going through this journey as FTM's together!
I bought the diapers - they were $30 for all 5! I was so excited! and YES we are going cloth, I am just ecstatic about this as well!

If that wasn't all enough to chatter on about, 
let's get to this weeks THRIFTY THURSDAY!!
I've started getting comments and I am loving it! Please do keep letting me know what you think of my Features and if you have anything you'd like to be Featured!!
Not to throw anyone off, I absolutely have a food post to Feature this week!

These Pumpkin Spice Latte Muffins look so amazing - and right up my alley!! Side note - the Pumpkin Mocha latte at DD is amaazing! I have to limit myself though, of course!

And I can't forget the Peanut Butter Pie - hubby is dying for me to make this one for him! Yesterfood has some seriously good recipes!!

I had to include these Ham & Swiss Lasagna rolls they look so awesome - I am not a fan of swiss, or cheese in general, so I would try to find a substitute :)

Just to be a little different I am adding an extra Feature - NON food related!! 
This Car Care Basic Checklist is so practical, everyone should have one!

I really hope you have all enjoyed my Features and exciting news!! Don't forget to leave me some love in the comments and please come back next week!!
