I'm a little behind in my blog update, but Kim and I ventured to Las Vegas last weekend! We had a great time and were good girls! I only gambled $25 over a 3 day span...probably because we stayed at the penny and quarter slots. A 100 pennies goes a long way! I did enjoy gambling and could see how it would get addicting if you kept winning. I won $12 off of $1!! My favorite thing was the amazing hotels and their different themes. The Venetian and The Bellagio were my favorites! The music coordinated fountains in front of the Bellagio were beautiful at night. I felt like I was on "Ocean's Eleven"! One day, we drove to Hoover Dam and The Red Rock Canyon. Both were way cool and nothing like anything I'd ever seen! We laughed at all the hispanics handing us call girl flyers. They would all line up on the side of the street and wave naked call girl flyers in our faces! We were starting to wonder if they thought Kim and I were a couple! We had a good time and I guess that's my last "girls trip" before the baby! That's crazy to think.
We had Baby "H"'s 18 week ultrasound on Monday and decided to torture everyone by not finding out the sex. Mom and Chris' mom, Brenda, were both there with us and you should have seen how excited they both were! They both had tears streaming down there face during the ultrasound. I wish I would have had my camera at that moment! Baby "H" is healthy and all the anatomy looks perfect. Baby "H" weighs about 8 ounces and is 6 inches long! We feel so blessed and relieved to have a healthy baby! Keep us in your prayers for the rest of the journey. After the ultrasound, we celebrated over lunch and laughed as the grandma's kept looking at the u/s pictures. This baby is going to be so spoiled being the 1st grandchild on both sides! Sorry, the 3D picture is a little scary!
I enjoyed a great girl's weekend in Savannah with my sister, Elizabeth, and mom. Savannah was beautiful with the azaleas in full bloom! We were lucky to be there during the annual tour of homes, so we toured 9 old homes. Some of the homes even had the before and after pictures of their restoration, which was so cool. Right up my alley! We stuffed ourselves at Paula Dean's restaurant that night and the food was great! I had to unbutton my pants after that meal so that my jeans would fit! We had a great time and I am so glad that we got to spend some quality time together.
We got married May 2005 and are living happily ever after. We love living out in the country and have learned to enjoy the simple things in life. I am a nurse in labor & delivery and Chris is a firefighter. We have a beautiful little girl, Ella, and new sweet little boy, Hayden. We are blessed with a wonderful life and good family and friends!
