Crib Bedding!

Today I ordered the bedding for the crib! We finally decided on one that we both like and I ordered it from this evening. We made a trip to Target and got the crib mattress as well. The crib we have is either very similar or the same one as in the picture below. It is the same finish and I think its the same model.Tomorrow we are going to start cleaning out the spare bedroom and the closet to get everything organized so we can move all A.J.'s stuff into her new room! I am excited for this to be done because it will not only be one less thing for me to worry about, but it makes everything seem more real as well!

I had my glucose screening this week at the lab, so hopefully I passed that and won't have to go back for the 3-hour test later on. I should find out next week when we have our next appointment.

Merry Christmas!

Just wanted to drop in and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday! We are enjoying our time back with our families in Chicago and had a wonderfull Christmas Eve, as well as a fun Christmas day so far!

We all got many awesome gifts and are enjoying playing with all of our new stuff this afternoon! We are gearing up for a big Christmas dinner and possibly a movie in the theatre later on tonight. I feel like we have been eating non-stop since we got into town, but I can't complain, the food has all been delicious.

Congratulations, Steph and Wade!

I got news last night that my friend from back home got engaged! I'm so excited for them and can't wait for their wedding this summer! Steph was a reader at our wedding and that was the first time I met her (now) fiance. They are perfect for each other and both so much fun!

They set the date for the wedding as July 3, 2010, so we should be able to make it and have a built in babysitter in Grandpa G! My parents will most likely be invited to the wedding as well and since Steph grew up about 100 feet from my parent's house, the wedding should be in my hometown.

Since it is 4th of July weekend, we should be able to take a few extra days of leave and make a little trip out of it. It will most likely be the first time that we head home with the baby, so it would work out pretty well (she will be about 4 months old). I am just so excited, I can't wait!

Winter Is Here....

Winter is here with a vengence in Western Washington. We have broken records for low temperatures all over the area yesterday and I got my first bloody nose this morning due to the cold, dry air. I don't think I've had a bloody nose since I was a little kid.

The heat in our house has been running almost non-stop for the past few days and the meteorologists on the news say that the cold spell isn't supposed to break until at least the middle of next week, so we have several more days of cold to look forward to. At least we haven't been hit by the HUGE storm that is slowly crawling its way across the entire country.

We may get some snow this weekend, which would be awesome (I LOVE SNOW!). If we do, I will make sure to take pictures of it and post it on here. My mom said that they have gotten quite a bit of snow in the past few days and it hasn't let up really at all and doesn't look like it will anytime soon. That sucks for everyone trying to get around back home, but it means that the snow might still be here in a few weeks when we get home for Christmas!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Roommate Reunions!

So we were back in Chicago for Thanksgiving and the Saturday after Thanksgiving was my baby shower! A bunch of people came to the party and almost all of my roommates from college were in town for it! The only one who couldn't come was Abby.

We had a very fun time with all our family and friends over the holiday weekend and we are so thankful for all the wonderful gifts we received from people at our shower! We got the car seat, swing, crib, bouncy seat, and toys, not to mention lots and lots of clothes! Everything is so cute and we are so excited!

We made it back to WA and Thursday Abby was able to come out to WA and visit for a day or two! She actually came West because she is attending a fundraiser for her cousin out here, but she was able to come down to see us and spend some time here! She experienced the BN talent show with me on Friday morning and I'm sure its something she will never forget! LOL.

All in all, it was great to see everyone and we really enjoyed spending time with friends and family! Only a few more weeks until Christmas, so get your shopping done!
