You Know You're Pregnant When...

You know you are pregnant when...

1. You feel bad most of the time.
2. Your belly is poking out, and it is not because you ate too much.
3. Your reading material has changed from novels to
What To Expect When You're Expecting.
4. Every mother you run into tells you her pregnancy and delivery story, and sometimes it's more than you really wanted to hear about.
5. Coffee and alcohol, 2 of my favorites, smell terrible, and the thought of drinking them makes you sick.
6. You get excited about maternity jeans because they are more comfortable than your regular jeans.
7. Instead of making a to-do list when you're bored at work, you are writing out baby names.
8. Your husband tells you that you are not fat even though you have gained 10 pounds.
9. You google certain foods while grocery shopping because you can't remember if it is ok to eat.
10. You feel bad ALL the time.

Nick and I are expecting a baby in June! From our sonogram today we are 95% sure it is a GIRL! We aren't buying any baby clothes yet because we couldn't get a clear shot, but we are very excited!

1 Peter

1Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7 These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, 9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
1 Peter 1: 3-9

I came across these verses last week, and I have been thinking about them ever since.

Have a good week!

The Mail is Here!

Don't you hate when you go to the mail box and all you have is bills? Bills are not exciting.

Today was a great mail day. I open my mail box to find a Christmas present I had ordered (for someone else) earlier this week, several Christmas cards, and my REAL SIMPLE magazine! REAL SIMPLE is my favorite magazine. And this one is for January. Since I have a subscription I get it a month early! It's awesome!
I also love getting Christmas cards and displaying them on my refrigerator! Nick and I have not done a Christmas card since we have been married. Maybe next year.

For now consider this my Christmas card for you. You can print it and put it on your fridge if you want. I think the toilet paper kind of looks like snow.


Happy weekend! I wish you a happy mail day!

Going to the Ship!

Atlanta was AUesome! We went to see the Auburn Tigers win the SEC Championship! Nick, my cousin John George, and I left Montgomery early Saturday morning. We parked close to the stadium and walked around, found some friends, and tailgated before entering the stadium. Our friend Austin was able to get us tickets. It was fun to sit with a group of friends at the game, and we had great seats! They were in the upper deck on the 50 yard line.

WARNING: Many pictures below.

Tailgating outside the Georgia Dome

Tiger Walk! View from our seats!

Fun group to cheer with!

Final Score!

The toilet paper started rolling!Auburn won!
I love this picture of Chizik and Cam! One last victory picture in the stadium!
After the game we headed home to Montgomery. One of the best parts of the night was stopping in Auburn to roll Toomer's Corner! We brought a roll in the car. It was awesome! The corner was covered with the most toilet paper I have ever seen!! It looked like snow!The last time Auburn was undefeated and won the SEC Championship I was a freshman. I went to the game in Atlanta and then to the Sugar Bowl. But this win was so much better because now we are heading to the National Championship in Arizona!! I've already picked out my game day attire in the picture below!

Auburn Family, All In!

Headed to Atlanta!

Wednesday, December 1, 2010


I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Nick and I spent Thanksgiving in Mississippi. We had a grand time. We celebrated Thanksgiving with Nick's family on Wednesday afternoon, and then we headed to my parents' house Wednesday night.

Thursday started out with one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving. The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade! I love to watch the parade, no matter who tries to make fun of all the characters dancing around. My favorite parts are the Broadway plays and the Rockettes. I watched the entire parade in my pj's. It was great!

For our Thanksgiving celebration we headed to my cousins' lake house in Arkansas (about 20 minutes from my house). It was such a nice day full of family, food, and relaxation.
We ended our Thanksgiving holiday in Mississippi with the Iron Bowl. For the non-football, or non-Auburn football fans, the Iron Bowl is when Auburn plays Alabama (our biggest rival). It was a good game after Auburn starting playing well. Nick was so mad when we were down 21-0 that he left and went hunting. He ended up listening to the end of the game in the truck, and of course we watched the re-run on Sunday. What a game! War Eagle!

On another Auburn football note, Cam Newton has been cleared. There were accusations that Miss. State offered him money, so Auburn was accused of the same thing. It was all anyone could talk about over here. Everyone was saying he was ineligible to play and our victories would not count. However, today, the NCAA cleared Miss. State, Auburn, and Cam! I never doubted Cam or Auburn for a second! On to the SEC Championship!

Expecto Patronum

Are you a Harry Potter fan?

Nick and I are. We have been reading the books for years, and we go see the movies the first chance we get. You can call us nerds. It won't hurt my feelings. I still love it!
If you are not a Harry Potter fan and you are thinking about becoming one, I suggest reading the books first. The books are better than the movies! Aren't they always, no matter the story? Don't get me wrong, the movies are really good, but they tend to leave out details. The latest Harry Potter movie has been split into 2 movies. If they included every detail they would have to split it into 7 parts (like Voldemort). I am just warning you that the movies may make more sense if you know all the missing details.

Each Harry Potter movie gets better , even if some things are ch
anged from the book to the movie. But what movie doesn't differ some from the book it is based on?

So if you haven't read the series, get started. They are great to read by the fire over the holidays. Then go watch all the movies. J. K. Rowling is a genius!

Hello World

This past weekend Nick and I celebrated our 25th birthday for the last time this year! We went to a concert in Atlanta. We went to see the country stars, Lady Antebellum! We had a fabulous time! Lady A is one of our favorite groups. We have been wanting to go see them for a while, but it just never worked out until now.

The tickets stayed on our fridge for weeks. I was so worried we would forget them.
We stayed in mid-town Atlanta. We walked to a restaurant and enjoyed a wonderful meal at the South City's Kitchen. They had some good fried green tomatoes!

After dinner we walked to the Fox and enjoyed our concert! We were on row 14! We had great seats. We were also on the end of the row, so later in the concert we stood near the wall and we could see (and dance) a lot better!
Look how close we were to the stage!Opening performance by David Nail. He is new to the country scene.Introducing Lady Antebellum!
And the concert ended with their song Hello World, the one they recently sang on the CMA's.
The concert was great! I'm so glad we finally got to see them live!

On our way home to Montgomery we stopped in Auburn to tailgate with some of Nick's college buddies and some of their wives. We got home just in time to see the Auburn Tigers win the SEC WEST! I guess we will be heading back to Atlanta pretty soon!
