Its a GIRL!!!!!

Hello everyone!!! My appointment went so well today!! I had the nicest tech who did the ultrasound and after doing all her measurements (which all looked great!) she saw that it was a girl!!! How exciting is that?? I have to say there were many moments over the last few weeks where I thought I was going to have a little boy, so it was a shock - but a very good one!!! I can't wait to buy little dresses, and bows, and I hope she has curly hair!!! I'll post pictures as soon as I get my scanner up and running! :)

Thank you all for being so supportive! It's been such an exciting day!!!! And TL - thanks for the cinnamon bears!!! DELICIOUS!

Paint Update

I did it!! I have my paint picked out!! I didn't do it by myself, but with the help of my good friend Sonia!! She and I went to school together and she actually won first place in an interior design competition for the nation!! She came down on Saturday and helped me make some final decisions on my house!! I am thrilled with the outcome!
This faux-leather look will be used in the master bedroom (on about this shade of red...great sample picture!) and also on the bottom half of my dining room wall (which will be brown, with the look of leather). I think it will turn out great and accent my entertainment center quite well.
My guest bathroom and nursery is what I am most excited about - I won't spill the beans on that though...I'll wait till I have pictures! :) Stay tuned!!

Picking Perfect Paint

How hard is picking a paint color? I just need to turn my bright white house into a masterpiece to the eye - easy?? NO WAY!! I have a handful of friends that have been trying to help me find paint - and I must say that I have come a long way since we moved in, but still have to choose between two colors! I have gone to the store on several occasions to try to get samples, and they are always out of the "base" they need to mix the sample - argh!!! Plus, I have so many different ideas about my dining room - it is killing me!! (Thats a whole other story) All the interior design classes I took in college are blanking out of my mind - colors seem to all run together - and my husband is obsessed with a blue paint swatch from Lowes!! What is a girl to do???

My Valentine

My Wonderful Husband, Wow, 13 years have gone by since we became friends, but it still feels like we just met. I still get so excited when I see your number come up at work, and butterflies when I get to see you after not seeing you ALL day! - and when you (no matter WHAT) will hold my hand anywhere we go. All the little things still make me question what I did to ever deserve you!!

Thank you for being my friend, helping me through the toughest part of my life while you were thousands of miles away. Thank you for looking past my flaws and imperfections and seeing me as your "diamond". Thank you for giving me a chance and asking me to marry you. Thank you for taking care of me every single day - and supporting me in all I do. Thank you Mark, for making me more happy that I ever imagined possible......Thank you for loving me!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Girl or boy?

I went to my doctor's appointment yesterday! Everything is going perfect!! The baby kept moving when the doctor was trying to hear the heartbeat! It probably didn't help that I was giggling the whole time - but hey!

We also set the date for our big ultrasound!! It is Feb. 28th!!!!! Less than three weeks away!! We are so excited!

I'll post as soon as I find out!

Pregnancy Cravings- (The unhealthy ones!!!)

So call me crazy - but I wanted to post on two items that somehow manage to control part of my thoughts sometime during my week!

I remember over Christmas (I was only 9 weeks preggo at that time) my mom, my sister Kira, and I were making Christmas goodies - and we made chocolate covered cinnamon bears! Well, I ate some, and a few more, some dipped in chocolate, some not....and ended up taking the whole bag home with me because I couldn't get enough!! (My mom insisted because they were keeping me sane!) I don't usually LOVE cinnamon bears either, but no matter how yucky I was feeling, I could eat one of those and feel so happy for quite some time!! I still crave them now - but try not to buy them as often - because I really will eat all of them.....But I would keep Sprouts in business!!!

Which leads me my other....

Posted by PicasaWho just goes and buys Sixlets anymore? One afternoon when I was having a really rough day, that is all I wanted (no idea why it popped into my mine) - I was seriously craving them!! It was driving me crazy because they aren't like a Snickers bar - you can't just go anywhere and get these delectable little things!! But alas! I found them at a store right next to my gym!! :)
