Ames fireworks 2007

I got to have yummy pancakes for breakfast but a totally rainy day equals no parade and no fireworks. Total bummer!

I almost hate to admit this but I am seeing the following movie along with the first 2 tonight. That will be over 6 hours of movie watching for this momma! It's going to be a late night!

Well it has been quite some time since I last posted, over a year.
I can't catch you up on all that has happened but there are a couple that are note worthy.

I got to fulfill a life long dream in December and go to Disney World! Thanks to Mike's parents we had a good family vacation with his side. We had a nice place to stay and were able to visit: Disney World, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, and Universal Studios. It was a packed week but loads of fun. I definitely want to go back sometime!

The other piece of news worth sharing is that we are expecting our first baby in September! I will admit we were both I think a little shocked but super excited too. Today is the start of my 27th week so I am over half way done. Kind of crazy how fast it seems to have gone so far. Also kind of freaks me out that this kid is going to be here before we know it. It's an adventure that's for sure. We do know that it is a boy but haven't done much planning as far as the nursery goes and we haven't settled on any names either. Here are a few pictures to catch you up.

Time for my monthly update.

Days have been flying by, I don't know where the go. Days in my 20s are winding down and I am determined to make the most of these last months. Summer/Fall plans thus far include:

  • Girls weekend at the end of May in Des Moines. Hotel, spa, & Wii. Should be fun

  • Trip to Chicgo to visit Katie. This trip is long over due but WILL happen this summer!

  • Camping trip up north with Missy (who will also ring in year 3-0 this year).

  • a week long visit from Heather (coming all the way from Canada!). I am excited to take her to the Iowa State fair and just hang out with her. We haven't seen each other for about 8 years!

  • Raiders game in KC

  • ISU game in KC and then an NFL game the next day

  • many saturdays spent at the farmer's market

  • weekend trips to local wineries to take in the free entertainment

That's my list so far, let's see if I can be able to do them all!

The invitation biz has kicked into gear for this year. I have my first invitation suite done and am working on the second and have a third waiting in the wings. I will be doing programs for 2 of the 3 as well and also am working on a set of note cards and birthday invitations. Looks like it won't be a slow summer after all!

I am hoping to finally get a start on my yard work this weekend, we will finally (crossing my fingers) have a couple of rain-free days. I need to dig up the sod and start my compost bin and buy some dirt for my raised bed. I bought a few vegetable plants toay and will get more this weekend and hopefully by the middle of the summer will have a nice garden growing!

Alright, enough for now. here is a picture from last weekend.
