Catching up....

Okay, Laurie, this is for you....I mean, this is for your husband--I know he eagerly awaits my blog entries.....

Time to play a little catch up....guess I'll start with the most recent and work my way back....

We ordered a crib and baby bedding! Yay! A little progress. I love the crib! And it's versatile--a canopy can be added to the four posters, or they can be removed all together. It also converts to a daybed. I wasn't anxious about getting the nursery done until we actually ordered stuff, but now I can't wait for it to get here! It's weird for me to call it 'the nursery', because we typically call it 'the box room'.....if you've been to my house you know why...if you haven't, well, it's pretty self explanatory. Here are pictures of the crib, bedding, and two dresser/changers I've got my eye on......Opinions welcome on the dresser/changer....

Just the dresser on the far left.....

Last weekend we stayed in Fayetteville with John and Gwendolyn and had a great time! I'm kicking myself now because I went the whole weekend without taking a single pic with Gwendolyn or McCollum! We had lots of fun, and thanks for letting us stay! Matt and I went to the game on Saturday night....Although the Hogs pulled off a win, we hope the first game that Baby Zane sees is much better!
Go Hogs!

A few weeks ago we went on vacation to Seaside, Florida! The night before we left, news reports said that Tropical Storm Fay was hours away from the Sunshine State, so we just knew we were driving into the eye of a hurricane......We were so lucky---Perfect weather all week! TS Fay didn't arrive until the night before we left. We went with another couple, Jonathan & Sarah Stringer. We had some good laughs, great food, and way too much sun!
Getting tan!

Dinner at The Red Bar

Wish I was still there....

My brother started pharmacy school.....Good luck! Dad, Lee, Mom

And finally, a preggo pic to add to the mix. This was taken at 19 weeks.

If you lie down with dogs......

I've decided to dedicate this blog entry to my two four-legged babies, Emma and Paisley. I have a feeling that in a few months they may be a little attention-deprived. So, here are some pictures of our 'little girls', some old, some recent....and the one of Matt sleeping on the couch with them was actually taken today....he was worn out from a tough morning at Children's.
