{Vegas and a gift}

As my beautiful sister mentioned on her blog, we took off for a grown up Vegas trip this weekend and had a blast. Here are a couple of additional pictures for your viewing pleasure :)

Singing it up at Napolean's Piano Bar, Paris, Las Vegas

"Serendipity 3" for some yummy delights ;)

Ali and Josh at the Eiffel Tower

Cat and Jimmy at the Paris fountain

And Josh and I at the Golden Nugget buffet - yummy!

Vegas 2011 - Woohoo!!!!

And in regards to the gift......I don't have it in my possession yet, but a little birdie told me that a very special friend (Andi at Jane of All Crafts, you know who you are!!) sent me a very special gift. She sent me an adorable ceramic citrus reamer to add to my collection!! :)
Thank you so much Andi!! You are too thoughtful for words!

happy Monday evening everyone!


Oh....and in case you didn't catch it on Ali's blog, here is my official first "baby bump" picture (sort of - haha). Nothing like a raging Vegas pool picture to show off our pea in the pod! haha!

I will be 16 weeks on Wednesday and still not much to show for it!! I'm sure I'll blimp out soon enough ;)

{Happy Anniversary to ME!!}

One year ago today was one of the happiest days of my life; my wedding day!

This year has flown by way too quickly. Although hard at times, it has been an amazing journey that I wouldn't wish to be on with anyone else. I am very much looking forward to all that is to come for us.

Happy Anniversary to one amazing husband. Thank you for loving me like you do! I love you too!

Muah!! xo

My turn to "ing" :)

Making: a baby!! This is some hard work I tell you! ;)
Cooking: Umm....nothing. :( I made spaghetti last night. Nothing impressive. Sorry husband!
Drinking: Water with crushed ice
Reading: People Magazine. I am ready to start a new book, but not sure what. Hunger Games maybe?
Wanting: to find out if we are having a boy or girl so I can start getting things ready!! :) So excited!!
Looking: forward to my friend Catherine coming out for the weekend. Love her so much!
Playing: with the pups. By playing I mean throwing a toy and hoping that they don't bring it back to me to throw it again LOL. I am so lazy!! haha!
Wasting: food. I hate that I do this, but lately I get sick of things so quickly! No bulk-buying for us at the moment.
Sewing: nothing now - but I plan to sew some fancy burp cloths and baby blankets with my friend Elizabeth soon.
Enjoying: being outside and in the water as much as possible. Going to the beach and floating in a swimming pool are my happy places!
Praying: that the little munchkin growing inside of me continues to be healthy and strong, and that a certain amazing friend of mine gets pregnant soon!!! :)
Waiting: to go to a 9:50 movie - Crazy, Stupid Love :) I can't wait!!!
Liking: fruit. Yummy cold refreshing fruit. Mmmm!
Wondering: why Sadie already needs a bath (stinky!!!) even though I just gave her one 2 days ago! ugh!
Loving: sleeping in!!! (enough said!!)
Hoping: that the stretch-mark cream does it's job - hahaha!!!
Marvelling: at my sister and her amazing attitude. She is my favorite!
Needing: to eat better and more often.
Smelling: doggy breath (it's amazing that I can smell it and she is all of the way across the room!! Ew!)
Wearing: jeans, a tank top, and a striped 3/4 sleeve cardigan :)
Following: fun-to-read blogs and the week-by-week pregnancy ticker on Today my baby is around 3 inches long (approx the size of a small shrimp). :)
Noticing: how being happy and smiling is so much better than being grumpy. It's a choice I'm making. I really do have so much to be happy about! :)
Knowing: that this Summer is going WAY tooo fast!!! :(

That's it, folks!
