A Year Ago... When This was a big deal....

I mean, the picture. Today is our Anniversary
and we are totally excited. An entire year has
passed since Dan and I were married. A lot can change in that first year. It is interesting to look back on all that has happened (which really isn't that much) and enjoy the time we've spent together.

- We lived in Raleigh

-Finished School at WTCC

-Drove to Iowa

-Drove to Connecticut

-Moved to Charlotte

-Started School at UNCC

-Got pregnant

We did a lot. People told us when we got married, "the first year is the hardest." Dan and I have evaluated this several times with the idea that we hope it was... because our first year was fun! and really, we had a few disagreements but - -nothing that knocks you off your feet. If this past year was the hardest we have pretty smooth sailing ahead of us for the rest of our lives & eternity!

Okay, I promise that this wont turn into a blog about a developing fetus.... but, I have a confession.

I think this is something that everyone can understand. My whole life, I have imagined having kids. I mean, really -- some people want them, some people don't and I have always been in the first category. I remember telling my mom when I was a wee child that I was going to have 10 kids. I remember she laughed and said, "first have one -- then decided". Being pregnant is not fun (at least, it isn't fun right now for me....). I thought from the second I found out we were expecting I was going to be the happiest women in the world but, that hasn't been the case.

Actually, I don't even know if I am excited. Here is a secret. Dan and I were trying for a while to get pregnant (or not trying not to get pregnant) I know, sounds stupid to some people because we are still in school but -- we are always up for a challenge so the fact that we are actually pregnant is a little unreal. I'm sure the excitement will come. I'm sure that after a while, I will be "into it" but as for now.... I'm just doing what I would normally due with a little more time added in to sleep and throw up. See what I mean, it isn't that great... Yet.

Since everyone else was doing it.... I wanted to do it too... But, does anyone know if you can put Private blogs on Google reader? If so, HOW? I just can't figure it out!

Happy to Announce....

That Dan and I are .... (drum roll)...

EXPECTING... (something).

Dan and I are a little more than 12 weeks pregnant and the baby is doing great. We had a Dr. appointment last Thursday and the heartbeat was 164 (which is good). We wont know what we are having until the first couple weeks of November but, are excited for either. Actually, Dan has already coined this baby as a boy -- but, we will have to wait and see. I go back and forth so, I'm not hep with guessing the gender.

With all of that going on, life is crazy. Making an 8 o'clock class and working 10 hour work days kill me but, soon enough we should be done with the whole "feeling sick thing" and moving on to the better part of our pregnancy.

In other news, Dan got promoted with UPS and will be working as a supervisor starting on Monday. We have truly been blessed as we moved to Charlotte and look forward to the exciting adventure that we have ahead of us.

Have I really not updated my blog in 2 weeks... I'm not sure how that time passed so quickly and I'm not sure how NOTHING has happened.

Oh well. Hopefully, there will be a worthwhile update sooner or later. Don't give up on me or this blog. I won't let you down! :)
