Weekend Summary

It's Sunday night and the weekend is coming to an end.

Weekend Highlights include:
An abrupt change in weather. Mother Nature must have been looking for something to do. Saturday was absolutely beautiful! We cleaned out our cars, played outside with the dogs, and even laid on the grass with nothing more than jeans and a tank top on. Sunday however, was another story in itself. We awoke Sunday morning to find that our beautiful Spring grass had been covered in cold cold... did I mention COLD snow! We quickly found ourselves at the coffee shop for some warm beverages. No worries though, I have faith that warm weather will come. So much in fact that I bought a cute little springy looking bag today.


Also, while at Target today, we purchased our very first item for the Beanie.

Our nephew has a shirt with the same saying on it. It always makes me smile!

On Saturday I went to dinner with my dad, Chelsea, and her family. We went to Red Robin. It was my first time, and I fell in love very quickly when I discovered that they serve ENDLESS FREE FRENCH FRIES!!!! For anyone who knows me, they know that I have a very close relationship with the french fry! Needless to say, by the time my veggie burger came, I had a hard time finishing it as I had filled up on 2 baskets of fries :).

Sunday ended with a bang. Our dryer decided to finally cross over to dryer heaven. I can't really complain since it was given to us for free almost 6 years ago. It's just that right now we are at the point where all of that time we spent paying off our debt and never replacing any of our already used appliances is catching up to us. We have a laundry list of items in need of replacement. It was sooner than we anticipated, but today the dryer decided to jump to the front of our priority list. Matt has spent a bunch of time researching dryers so that our replacement will (cross our fingers) last a long long time.

Well it's almost 10pm and way past my bedtime.

Good night!

Its a Boy!!!

ITS A BOY!

On April 1st, we did one of the most amazing things I've ever done.
We had our ultrasound!

I somewhat knew what to expect going in for the ultrasound.
However, the feelings I experienced when I seen the first image of our little Beanie, I had never anticipated.

It's one thing to be pregnant and know that there is a baby in there somewhere, but be able to peek inside and see actual images of our baby...all I can say is WOW.

I think having our ultrasound was by far one of the most exciting things I've ever done!!
I felt like I had just gotten off of the most awesome roller coaster ride when we walked out of there!

I was 18 weeks and 5 days.
Our Beanie measured 19 weeks and between 2 to 4 days.
According the radiologist...all looks very healthy!

Here are just a few of the ultrasound images...


I just love this image of his little feet!!


He is covering his face with his arm.
Look at that cute little ear!!
I love technology!



These flowers and eclairs (well what was left of them after I walked in) along with a hoops and yoyo card were waiting for me when I walked into the office following the ultrasound.

Thank you so so much to my wonderful work spouse Megan!



The flowers at home and in a vase.
They are so beautiful!
Especially since I am craving warm weather so badly
and these flowers just scream SPRING!
