Man, what a hectic couple of weeks! I've been on a whirlwind tour of my homeland and I am *extremely* glad to be home. We went to Lubbock to spend time with Mike's family and celebrate my big 3-0 and his mom's big 7-0 all in one fun filled week - plus we took family portraits...I might post a couple of them here. Then I went on to Dallas to spend time with my family and BFF - that was much more relaxing than the week in Lubbock! Got to do a lot of shopping , eating, and collecting of birthday presents, so that was nice...but it's also nice to be back in my own house with my own shower!
We received a few new things for the baby - including some freakin' adorable Texas Tech socks and tiny little shoes, and a little Texas Tech baby cheerleader shirt (hope it's a girl!) Even Pepper got a Tech shirt - I'll have to get a picture of her wearing it and post it up here.
Speaking of the baby - my next appointment is Monday, and the doc hopes to be able to tell what flavor it is already! So, fingers crossed - we could be finding out in just 7 days whether we're having a Monya Jr. or a Mike Jr.! Either one would be fine with me, as long as it's healthy, of course. A boy would be cool & probably easier to deal with, but a girl comes with so many adorable little clothes! We'll see how it goes :)

Shameless plug...

Okay, so I set up a baby registry at - and also one at if you are so inclined, please feel free to add to the little one's stash! Just go to either (or both) of those sites, and search for my full name to see the lists. Also - we're going the cloth diaper route, so we don't need a Diaper Genie or a wipes warmer or anything like that. I'll set up a list at soon.

PS - My birthday is in 12 days... and it would be just fine with me if I got baby presents instead of grownup presents... (hint hint!) :)

I didn't fall off the planet...

Not much news to report around here - almost 13 weeks along now and starting to show a little bit.. Spending every free minute in the pool (It's 115 degrees here!)

Okay, one bit of news - I quit my job! Yay!! We decided that we are going to do some traveling this summer, and I'm going to school full time in the fall. My last day was Friday so now I'm just barefoot and pregnant at home :) I spend my days eating bon bons and watching Oprah...... yeah right! I've been cleaning like a fiend & trying to get the baby's room organized and get rid of some of the junk in the garage. Speaking of the baby's room - we got our first baby present on Friday! It was a going away present from a friend of mine at work, and it was two adorable little onesies, a cute blanket with ducks on it, and these little socks with stuffed animal head rattles on them - of course all in yellow/green colors, but thats okay :)

Anyway, time to start a new load of laundry - talk to y'all later!
