February over already??

I cannot believe that February us over already. We have a weird relationship with 'time" these days. On one hand I want time to fly so it is "time" for our baby to arrive. However, on the other hand once we get our beautiful baby I want time to stand still! We can't have it both ways can we? This past weekend we had our nieces and nephews with us. We always have such a great time with them.  Watching them grow really makes you realize how fast time goes....

Wearing their "How to Train Your Dragon" costumes taking a time out.

We took the kids to see Gnomeo and Juliet. 2 adults, and 4 kids at a 3D matinee movie $53.00! But it was all worth it! It was one of the best kids movies I have ever seen. It was really adorable although I must admit I went into it having an affinity for Gnomes!

Aren't they adorable?? I hope March is a great month for everyone. Maybe a month for dreams to come true!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy heart day!  I love Valentine's Day, I don't think you need to have a special day just to remind you to love the people in your life but I used to hate it. As a former florist for 10+ years it was a day that meant prior weeks of hard work and exhaustion. I also hadn't met Ryan yet. The past 4 Valentine's Days that we have celebrated have held a new meaning for me. He had surprises for me on Saturday and even today he has more. If he never gave me flowers or cards or gifts I'd still love him to the moon and back. However, the fact that he does these things and works hard to find exactly what I like makes him even more loveable to me! Lest I make him seem like a saint he isn't perfect (and God knows I'm not) he once proudly told me how he had put all of the laundry away for me and I had to tell him the basket he put away was actually all dirty! But honestly doesn't that make him cute too? He will be such a wonderful father I can't wait to see him with our children!

In the meantime........

I'd love to have some exciting stories to tell about what I have been up to lately but I'd be making them up! This weather is really getting on my nerves, I love to look at snow from the warm safety of my couch not from my steering wheel.  There was a 2 or 3 day period when the snow stopped and melted too however that led to another issue for me. You see when it is so cold outside our dogs Violet and Ellie hate to be outside so I open the kitchen door and they hope off the side porch and do their business asap and run back in. So when the snow melted it looked like a poop farm outside! Now normally I "pick up" quite frequently but it has been too darn cold! So I find myself vacation planning because it gives me hope that the snow will stop. They tell  you that when you are "waiting" you should live normally and do things that you normally would like go on vacations etc, etc. That is harder to do than it sounds though. I get tired of planning things that don't include a baby. Still working on that patience!! So my favorite new thing is to go on Priceline (The Star Trek fan in me feels loyal to William Shatner) and I pretend plan vacations all over the place. So it's a chilly Monday just get on Priceline and I'm planning my vacation to sunny California where by the way you and your husband or whomever you travel with can visit San Diego for 6 days and 7 nights for about $1,300.00 including flights, very nice hotel and car! We aren't going to California but now I know where I will stay when I do go. It's almost like going there.. So eventually I will plan a real vacation for us but I'd be thrilled to have to cancel it for a new member of the fam!!
