What we have been up to...

Well, it's been awhile since I've posted but there has been A LOT going on around our place! Let's go back to my birthday...So it started with the surprise party. Thanks again to the hub for that. It was great. Sunday was a birthday lunch at my grandma's...again a great birthday gift...but little did I know that the best was yet to come on my actual birthday.

It was on a Monday so I went to school. On my way to school I picked up a couple of pregnancy tests...since I was about 8 days late I thought it was time. I waited until my planning period and I headed to the teacher's lounge restroom (kinda weird I know, but I HAD to take a test). I flipped it over and wouldn't look at it...and then I did...and I see this....
 I don't know if you can see it that well, but there are 2 lines. PREGNANT! I sat in the bathroom and cried for what I swear felt like 20 minutes. I was SO excited nad SO thankful. We have been wanting this for awhile now and it was more than overwhelming when I saw the 2 lines. ( I took another test a little later and PREGNANT again!)

I tried to get a hold of Robert, but he was in a meeting and had to call me back. He said, "What's up?" and I simply said, "You're going to be a daddy." We are both so excited! We told my fam that night and then his a couple days after. We were going to try to wait and tell them in person, but we couldn't do it. We had to spil our great news.

I have been to the doctor and at this time am about 6 weeks. We have another ultrasound next week and will be very glad to see the baby!

We are very thankful for this little blessing and the next 8 months will be for now nauseousness has definitely sat in. It's all so worth it! We can't wait to meet the little one!

Surprise Party and Surprise Run-In at Walmart

Ok, so this weekend has already began with a bang! Last night Robert said we were going to go to Short Street (local landmark restaurant) and eat with his boss Greg and wife Lisa. So I got ready and we headed out. We got to SS and walked in and he told me to check in the big room to see if they were in there. I peeked my head in and saw a table full of people and balloons. I said, "No, there is a birthday party in there!" After rethinking what I just saw, it hit me that it was my grandpa that I had seen and the lady holding the camera in the air was my grandma! I stuck my head back in there and everyone yelled, "Surprise!" I was baffled! I  have NEVER had a surprise party and there sat my entire family (with a dew exceptions) waiting to surprise me! It was awesome. Come to find out, the mastermind behind the whole thing was the awesome hub. He had planned the whole thing and apparently kept it a secret from me all week. He's absolutely the best...ya never know with that boy. 

So we enjoyed a wonderful dinner, cake, and presents...Mom and dad got me a new Northface jacket (which i LOVE), some Bath and Body Works goodies, and some Victoria Secret goodies :) It was so much fun and I was so happy! Robert really is the best and I am a REALLY lucky girl. And my family...they're about the best too. I'm so fortunate to have such a great group of people to share everything with! (Pictures to come)

Thanks again babe! I love ya!

Now on to today...I went to Wally World to gather up a few things and while I was walking down the isle I saw this guy.


Yup! Jesse from the Bachelorette! I was SO excited...I even got a "Hey." from him. I had to call Robert right away to tell him...he didn't find it as exciting as I did... Oh well, I was like SWEET! Guess little towns do get semi-famous people sometimes...even in Walmart!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Birthday, Kris!

I'd like to wish one of my besties a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I have grown up with this girl and shared many special days with her! We were bridesmaids in each other's weddings and I absolutely love this girl! Our parents were in Lamaze class together and we were born 11 days apart (Brit, you fall in the middle of us!)

Happy Birthday!
