A to Z - a little about me!

Just a little about me - from A to Z!

A is for age: 28 (29 on Saturday!!!)

B is for breakfast today: 1st breakfast - Multigrain Cheerios, 2nd breakfast - Fruit Smoothie, 3rd breakfast - animal crackers!!!

C is for currently craving: Coke, Chicken Nuggets, M&Ms, and oh so many more... (Caleb is a hungry boy! He makes me eat like a mad woman, thus the three daily breakfasts!)

D is for dinner tonight: Parmesan encrusted chicken in a light cream sauce

E is for favorite type of exercise: power napping!

F is for an irrational fear: Drains! I refuse to go near them! Pool drains, hot tub drains, bath tub drains - all of them! (I saw a 20/20 once about a girl who sat on a hot tub drain and her intestines got sucked out of her hiney. DJ swears it's impossible but I don't care. I will not go near them!)

G is for gross food: Since I got pregnant, ONIONS! (And anything I've tasted twice thanks to never ending morning sickness!)

H is for hometown: Waco

I is for something important: My wonderful Boppy body pillow - I have to literally put it on every night and it's like being wrapped in a cloud!

J is for current favorite jam: Blackberry preserves

K is for kids: 1 adorable baby boy on the way! (Caleb!)

L is for current location: my mis-matched hand-me-down recliner with the stuffing falling out! (My favorite spot to sit and nap in the whole house!)

M is for the most recent way you spent money: eating In-N-Out burger with the Hubsters

N is for something you need: Nursery furniture! And a new back door! And a car seat! And a glider! And... We need a lot of things with a baby on the way...

O is for occupation: Currently a part time pre-k teacher, but I turned in my letter of resignation today. I will officially be a stay-at-home mom next year!

P is for pet peeve: Irresponsible parenting! Don't even get me started!

Q is for a quote: "If you've not having fun you're taking up too much space!"

R is for random facts about you: I was on the Price is Right when I was in college. I got on Contestant's Row but didn't make it on stage.

S is for favorite healthy snack: Fruit!

T is for favorite treat: Blizzards!

U is for something that makes you unique: I broke my leg while skipping on a mountain in Brazil, I was rushed to the hospital while on a mission trip to Canada, I have extra bones growing in my feet.

V is for favorite vegetable: broccoli

W is for today’s workout: Bicep curls - lifting my food to my mouth as I ate everything in sight. All. Day. Long.

X is for X-rays you’ve had: teeth, back, knee, leg, ankle, foot - and probably more

Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Going on a date with the Hubsters!

Z is for your time zone: Central

Your turn! What are your ABCs?

It's a boy!

Yesterday was our big exciting sonogram. Both of our moms were able to be in the room with us and everyone cried as the first images of the baby came into view. Within minutes we were able to confirm what my recent dreams had suggested - this baby is a boy! We were blessed enough to have a friend do our ultra sound and she was amazing enough to print off a million pictures! She also printed this sweet picture for both grandmother's:

I simply cannot get over how precious that little face is! I'm so very in love with that sweet face! I told my mom today that I'm shocked at how deeply I love this little guy that I've never even met! Do you see that perfect little nose? And that strong chin? My heart soars all over again just looking at the picture!

Last night we had friends and family come over for a fun-filled gender reveal party! (Extra thanks to my parents and sister for driving so far and staying up so late just because this pregnant hormonal lady wanted you to come!) We had everyone vote and most people thought we were having a boy. They were happy to be right. And the others were pretty happy to be wrong I believe. :) We had a friend take a ton of pictures so as soon as I get them I'll share them with you.

Until then, the Hubsters and I are happy to dream and plan for Caleb Richard! He should arrive the last week of July or the first few days of August. We cannot wait!
