Love this!

Cecilia is one of my all time favorite Simon and Garfunkle songs. 
This cover is really great.

It's a Boy!!

We are beyond thrilled for our little boy!
It is becoming more and more real everyday that we are going to be parents.
Some things are exciting, some things are scary.
Either way, we sure can't wait to feel the joy this sweet little soul will bring into our lives!

Day 6: Manchester

Disclaimer: This day didn't go at all the way we wanted it to. We would have really loved to spend more time in Manchester. The people were very nice and the weather was great!


Woke early to get to Lyme park with enough time to catch our train at three.
Felt sick, I didn’t want to move so we didn’t leave until almost 11.
It took more then an hour to get there so we could only stay a short time.
House was beautiful but we didn't have time to tour the gardens.
Got back on the bus to go to the rail station. It only took us a half an hour to get back.
Got on the rail and rode three hours to london.
Went to information and got pamphlets and a rail card for each of us.
Walked around for a good 45 minutes looking for our hotel and were pretty sure we got scammed by a girl who’s “car ran out of gas.”
We were hoping if we helped her that she would give us directions.
She didn’t.
Stopped at the best western to get directions.
Turns out we walked right passed the place twice.
Checked in. Hungry but don’t want to leave.
Sleep instead.
Out of clean clothes.

In case you didn't know, Lyme Park is the location of Pemberly in A&E's version of Pride and Prejudice.
Mr. Darcy lives there and I really wanted to see it.
People thought it was a strange place for us to visit but we really loved all of the history of it.

I found it!

After lots of looking, the soda finally came out onto shelves!
Yesterday, we went across town to a local place that we thought would have it.
By the time we got there they were closed so we didn't get to look.
We were really bummed but then my sister-in-law found some at her local grocery store and I knew there was hope!
Today, we went to two Fry's Marketplaces close to us and found two full cases!

So here they are!

Usually, I am not a big reader.
I always hated books reports in school because I could not get myself to read the book.
I think I have realized that the reason is because I was only reading books I wasn't very interested in.

Well when Tommy was out of town last week I decided I should read to use all the time I had to myself.
I had heard great things about the books I chose from a fellow blogger and decided to give them a shot since my sister-in-law had them for me to borrow (thanks Charlotte!).

The Hunger Games is the first book and Catching Fire is the second in the series .
They were a really fun and entertaining read and it didn't take me long at all to finish both of them.
They are young adult novels so if you are looking for something intellectual and profound you probably won't find it here.
They are however, very well written and it will not take you long to get into it and start loving the characters.
So overall, I highly recommend them!
I even bought them for myself so my friends can read them.
The third and final book comes out at the end of August and I am really excited!

What we've been up to!

Posting has been sparse the last couple of weeks.
Turns out we get really busy in the summer months!
I'll tell you a little bit of what we've been up to.

Two weeks ago we went on a "staycation" to a resort in Scottsdale.
(We've had conversations about the real definition of staycation and found that it actually means to have a vacation at home. I'm using it for our vacation in the general area).
The resort was amazing and I'm sure you would love to see all the pictures of our awesome weekend.
Too bad they got stuck on a weirdo memory card and we cannot retrieve them...
If my most talented husband can get them off, I promise I will blog all about it!

Last weekend we went to my parents house in New Mexico.
For some reason I didn't take very many pictures (very unlike me).
But we had a good time and I got to visit with a few of my very good friends from back home.
I also got to see my beautiful, wonderful, amazing sister who was also visiting my most loving parents!*

Today, Tommy has headed off to New York for a business trip.
I've gathered books to keep myself busy while he is gone.
Here's to hoping that works!

Also! I'm going to the doctor today for a check-up.
I should be able to hear the heartbeat again and from here we will schedule our ultra-sound to find out what we are having!
Can't wait!
