Our little secret is out.

My photo, Tony's feet, Cabo San Lucas 2009

We've seen and heard the heartbeat. It was 157 bpm in case you're curious. My doctor gave us the go ahead and said everything looks great. We've told our families... Tony's last weekend and mine this weekend (more about that below). So we're ready to tell the whole world that WE'RE PREGNANT!

It was important for us to tell our families face to face so we could see their reaction. We gave each of our family members an envelope with the above picture for them to open. (If you know my family then you know we stuffed quite a few envelopes.) Watching their faces as they read it was priceless. I loved it, and will never forget the look on their faces and the tears in their eyes.

I've been slacking a bit lately, clearly I've been a bit preoccupied. I can assure you I'll have much more to share in the coming weeks and months.

Baby V is estimated to arrive in early January.

Weekend Ramblings

I finally watched It's Complicated on Saturday night. It's an adorable movie. It made me laugh, and a good laugh is exactly what I needed. In fact the "porky pig close-up" brought me to tears. Meryl Streep and Steve Martin never disappoint.

We went to the Astros game today. They lost. What's new. But it was fun to be with good friends! I adore Hunter Pence especially since he sports the tradition baseball uniform with the short pants and the high socks.

Bring It On

It's almost time for a little of this...
{SATC 2}

and a little of that...

Yes, I'm one of those Twilight gals.
 I will have to admit that I've migrated to Team Jacob recently.
I know I'm a dork, but at least I have insight to it.

And the best part...
I have a super lovely patient who keeps me supplied with free movies tickets and tickets for free popcorn and drinks.  What's better than movie theatre popcorn?  Ummm... nothing!

Happy Hump Day,

One. Day. At. A. Time.

I'm hanging in but barely.  

Lots going on recently. Some great and some not so great.
I'll be back to my normal activities soon I promise.

Headboard found, headboard purchased, headboard assembled, headboard loved. It was a complete steal and fits the room perfectly. Thanks LKM.

I'm a sucker for pineapples clearly and an even bigger sucker for all things Anthropologie. So when I spotted this in Anthro yesterday I knew it was destined to hang in my kitchen.

Happy Mother's Day!
I sure miss my mom on days like this
but find peace in knowing she's my guardian angel.
Life is sure to tell those you love just how much you love them.

Feliz Cinco de Mayo.

I've got my best Mexcian flare on today for a Cinco De Mayo party during lunch.

Also, happy birthday to my favorite and only nephew.
