I am so L.U.C.K.Y.

Today I just feel so "lucky". So many good things happened to me in this past few months to make me feel this way.

*Signed up for Creative Escape

*Found out I'm having a baby in October & I've been sick...this is good!

*Booked my flight to Germany to see my sister and her family...whom I miss so much.

*Booked my husband's trip to Vegas...in July

*Had the best birthday party in a long time...thanks Deb, Mel & Sharon.
*And so many more things....
One today was my friend Cindy from New Jersey called me, called me again and again and never gave up because our cell phones were cutting out.
She inpires me to do things I don't want to do...like join a Charm swap for Creative Escape. Such an incredible, talented girl. And one I get to call my friend. Not only that but she told me how to make a video out of pics and music.
Which leads to my next Lucky thing. About a month ago Lisa's sister Gayle sent me the Power Point slide show from her funeral to burn copies. Well since it came it has been missing. I tore my house apart looking for it. Frantic about telling Gayle it was missing...my dh went out to the "burn" pile of junk mail and found it in the box. It was one LUCKY day!
So I watched the video, burned copies and realized that no one has Power Point on there computer and it won't play in a dvd player so I knew I had to re-create it.
Thanks to Cindy I figured out how to make this video and will be able to burn CD's for everyone this week.
While watching the slide show and crying I saw a picture that reminded me of how LUCKY I was to have just spent one year ago with my 2 bff in New Mexico. In fact it was St. Patrick's day 2006. A holiday I don't normally celebrate holds so many memories. So this year to celebrate I made my friends Green Chocolate popcorn that Heidi Swapp gave us in her Year To Remember class. Then I delivered it to each of them. Gagging and all...the morning sickness that lasts all day!!!
So far 2007 has been A Year To Remember.
I just feel so LUCKY to have such a great husband, family & friends.
Life would be very dull with out any of them.

xoxo,

We're having a baby!

So it's official..Wade & I will be having our first baby sometime around October 23. I went to the doctor on Wednesday and he did an ultrasound and the baby is measuring perfect size for 8 weeks. The dr. saw the heartbeat but I couldn't really tell what is was. We are both very excited. I have not been feeling so well. My mom says I could feel worse. I feel nauseous all the time and have this nasty taste in my mouth. Hopefully it will go away soon.
I'll keep everyone posted here on this blog of any updates so be sure to check back. I go back on March 28th to hear the baby's heart beat so that will be very exciting.
We are not going to find out the baby is so everyone will be surprised!!! My sister's aren't real happy about that but they'll be ok. Wade & Ryan are hoping for a boy. Wade needs a new hunting partner...hahaha!
Well back to work.
Happy St. Patrick's day.
Wear green.
