Hooray for Thanksgiving!

Here's my new pet peeve of the's when people write T'giving. Yeah, let's take the THANKS out of Thanksgiving. It's like the people who put Xmas. Yeah, let's take the CHRIST out of Christmas. So anyway, what's wrong with people that they want to do that. If you do that, all you have left are two holidays where people just pretty much eat themselves sick.... What's the good in that??? Anyway....on to better things...

Aaron and I are going to Little Rock for Thanksgiving. It's pretty much what we do every Thanksgiving. Fun times will be had. Also, Aaron and I are going down on Tuesday night after work. I'm really excited about a road trip for an extended amount of time with just my husband. Things have been crazy for the last few weekends, and I feel like I've barely seen him. We're trying to get some more house stuff done. Well, Aaron's trying to get some more house stuff done. He's painting the outside of the house. It looks super, but he's fighting against time. It has to be warm enough to paint. So far we've been lucky. It's been nice here. I'm in charge of inside the house stuff. We're trying to get our holiday decorations out BEFORE we go to Little Rock, so they'll be up for us to enjoy as soon as we get back. Have I mentioned this before?? I HATE BOWS!!! I want bows on one of our trees, so I figured that I'd make them. BUT I HATE MAKING BOWS. I'm having, not from acid. I worked at The Bow Store when I was in college for a few months. Worst job ever!!!!!! Little old ladies would drop off TONS of ribbon, say they want 20 bows...and they'll be back in an HOUR! Ugh! Hated it. And yet, I still continue to torture myself. Whatever! I need a little more holiday spirit. I will get the bows done....I will get the bows done......

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Start listening to 103.7. The Christmas music is already on. Happiness!!!

Oh my gosh! I'm turning into my mother!

Here's what I am beginning to realize.....I am boring! I don't know exactly when it happened, but it is totally true. If you ask what I'm doing on the weekend, I'm likely to say laundry. That wouldn't be a big deal except that I'm EXCITED about it. I look forward to having nothing to do. I just want to sit here and watch Discovery TV or TLC. OH MY GOSH! I think I'm going to have to blame it on getting married. You people know me. I'm the girl who could stay up until 3 in the morning any day of the week. I'm the girl who was up for entertainment of all sorts....providing that it was actually entertaining. I'm the girl who didn't kill the McGuires even when they wrote in permanent marker on my face. Where did that girl go? I'm now the girl who is in bed by 10. I'm the girl who spends more time at Lowe's than just about anywhere else. I'm the girl who is excited about lounging around in her pj's ALL DAY. I'm sure people would say that I'm just "growing up". Is that what being a grownup is? How boring! And now I'm boring....boring Becky.....might as well just call me that.

Maybe I should be a pirate....

It's a girl!

We found out today that we're having a girl. The sonogram was totally fun. The lady was seriously good at it too. She was lightning fast. We got to see all kinds of things. Everything was normal, and we're right on track as far as weight and length. She weighs 8 ounces, and all her parts are there. She said it all looked great. She was squirming all over the place. We practically had to pin her down to see the sex. :o) I actually had to turn on my side because she was being difficult. Dr. Siri upped my due 1 day! I don't think that matters much. My doc seemed pleased with everything, so hooray!!! When we're sure about a name, we'll get that info out there. We will decided soon I'm sure! Yay for babies!
