March in Review

I can't believe March is over! Where does time go? I feel like it has been such a busy one for our family. Before I start I would just like to say we found my ring!! Kristopher couldn't find it when he was digging for it, so he bought a metal detector and was able to find it! What a relief!!

The beginning of March we decided it was time for our little Charlie to get his first hair cut. It was to the point that I was ashamed for anyone to see him. When he ran away from home, I was embarrassed to claim him. Let's just say the pictures speak for themselves.

The before and after...

It was nice to see his cute little face again!

The first weekend we took off to St. George for a little get-a-way. On Saturday we spent all day in Vegas just doing the touristy things and going to my favorite restaurant, BJ's! We had such a fun week soaking up the sun and just enjoying being away! It was much needed!

The week after we got back Kristopher surprised me with a ticket to Dallas. My Mom was there visited the my siblings, so he knew I would want to be there. I am so grateful for him! I had so much fun getting to see my very cute pregnant sister (due July 4th)! I loved being able to hang out with all of my siblings, my Mom, my niece and my Angela! Such a fun, fun time! Spending all day Monday with my sister Katie just shopping and going to lunch was a highlight! Unfortunately I was without camera.. but I do have this cute picture of Katie and I at lunch the day I had to go back.

I had such a fun time, but I think it will be a long time before I wanna travel without Kristopher!

That brings us to today. To celebrate the last day of March, we had a few pictures taken.

Yup that's right! There's a bun in the oven! Due to be well done October 2nd (tentatively). Which makes us around 14 weeks. The last picture is what is "suggested" as being a boy. Which is a very good thing because both sets of this little lad's grandparents have already loaded "him" with boy clothes. Wishful thinking I suppose, and we are thrilled!

We are very excited! Timing was WAY off and for sure was one of those wonderful curve balls life just loves to throw sometimes, but we are very excited for this little blessing!

I am so excited tomorrow is April! It's my favorite month, holds my favorite holiday Easter, hopefully we'll see more Spring, and maybe I'll turn the big 2 5 (I haven't made up my mind on that one). What a great month!

It's Spring!

Well apparently not where I live.. Sorry if my neon colored background hurts your eyes! I just needed a little spring in my life! It's my favorite time of year and days like these make me feel like it is never going to be here! When we went to bed last night there was zero moisture on the ground and when I opened my door about a 7:45 this morning, I was welcomed with about 7 to 8 inches everywhere and more on its way. I fought back the tears as I went back inside to change into my boots. I thought I would be the loving, independent wife and not bother my husband since it's a rare thing that he didn't have to be out the door before me. I walked down the hill to my car and began scraping. I was about half way done when I realized I was gonna need a little bit of help and text my husband to see if he would drive me to school. I couldn't feel my fingers! He was out in a hurry and very shocked by the sight. He told me to get in the car while he finished scraping the car. We were just driving off when CRAP where is my ring?? I had looked down and saw only my band. My fingers hurt so bad they were so cold, so with that and the fact they shrink when cold I didn't feel it slide right off. I burst into tears and my loving husband quickly started saying the perfect things to try and make me feel better. He got out and started going through all the snow that was by my car. We both looked for a bit and he thought it would be best to take me to school and he would continue looking. As if I needed one more reason to hate the snow! So now I am at work while the wonderful man I get to call my husband is on a mission to find my wedding ring. He just informed me he is on his way to buy a metal detector. Must have not had a lot of luck.. I'll let you know when we find it!

I did realize it's been 2 months since my last post. Where does the time go? I will be posting a more upbeat and fun blog shortly to recap the last month.
