Family of SIX & First Time At The Ryman

October 15th, 2013

I think most have heard by now that we will become a family of SIX at the end of April!  We are excited, especially the boys, but this pregnancy has totally stunk so far.  I have felt awful for 7 weeks now.  I keep thinking any day now I’ll start to feel better.  I’m still doing my best to cook dinner, but I feel the absolute worst around 5:00.  My food aversions are many and cooking/eating beef or chicken really makes my stomach turn.  Almost everything I cook these days involves bacon/pasta.  We’re ordering lots of pizza and Ian and I consume lots of Taco Bell bean burritos.  Hoping to get back to posting recipes soon.


Brian and I finally went to The Ryman.  We saw one of my most favorite bands – The Lumineers on Saturday night.  We had no idea what to expect and I was totally blown away!  There are big name concerts it seems almost every night here, but we’ve been holding out for The Ryman.  I wasn’t feeling wonderful, but it was by far one of the best nights I’ve ever had.  The entire show was well over 3 hours, which is a long time to sit on church pews.  I still loved every minute although Brian probably thought it was a little long.  He didn’t really get into Dr Dog, one of the opening bands.  While The Lumineers played, no one sat down for even a minute.  The Ryman only seats about 2ooo, although it feels like a much smaller crowd.  It’s a very intimate setting  that’s completely about the music instead of a big production.

Anyway it’s was an amazing experience and if you ever come to Nashville, I highly recommend it.  Stubborn Love is my favorite song.  Here is what it was like for us.

    YAY!!! Congrats!!! Hope you start feeling better soon! So many friends having babies in April/May. They ALL have ALL boys, so maybe this will be a wave of little girlfriends! Either way, it will be another sweet, cute little Lohrding! Take Care! Hilary

    So happy to hear the news. Mandy shared the video with me. It was hilarious. I think Ian’s reaction would be about the same as Garrett. Not that I have news to announce because I am so happy you’re expecting and feel like a family of four makes it for me! Wishing you days of feeling better and enjoying the little blessing growing inside. Hugs.

    Thanks Hilary! I will be happy either way, boy or girl. I have heard many people say each pregnancy got significantly worse. I think my body is saying NO MORE!!! :) @Hilary
