Today is one of those days when I just have to look around and say to myself "REALLY!!"

I woke up this morning to find my dogs paw prints all over my bedding. We've had either nonstop rain or snow so my yard is marsh. The dogs have the freedom to go in and out of the doggy door and it's not entirely their fault they have muddy paws. So instead of getting angry, I bathed both of the dogs and started washing muddy towels and sheets. I clean the kichen, start the dishwasher and come back to the bedroom to watch some TV. About 30 minutes later, I hear a beeping noise coming from the washing machine. I open the laundry room door and low and behold I find an overload of liquid detergent spilling out of the wash and tumbling onto the floor. Awesome!!! Let it be known, that this picture was the first time it overflowed. I took the picture, trying to find the humor in all this, cleaned it up and turned around to find it starting all over again. Sheesh!!

The best news of all!

Finally the best news we have is that Dick and I are expecting our first baby in September!! We are overjoyed at the thought of being parents. I can't wait to meet this sweet baby. A few weeks ago, we heard the heartbeat and it melted my heart. I've been feeling great. I am tired all the time but am glad to know that this shall pass. It's great having friends and family who can help me and answer all my questions. I would imagine I have a lot to learn!!! I'm 10 weeks Sunday and I looked forward to the 2nd trimester.

Snow Day/Valentines

This has been a great Valentines Day weekend!! Friday we awoke to several inches of snow. It was nice to sleep in and hang out with my dogs and my husband. Later that day, I received a delivery of 2 dozen roses and chocolate. It was very sweet and thoughtful. Friday night, we had dinner at an Italian restaurant. Today (Saturday) he went with me to see the movie Valentine's Day and tonight we are going to have dinner with friends. Did I mention that Monday is a holiday for us too? Yay for a 4 day weekend!!!

Cotton Bowl

Also in December, we headed to the Cotton Bowl to watch the Rebels play and win at the NEW Cowboy's Stadium. It was so much fun and the stadium was super nice. It was great seeing lots of old college buddies too!

In December..

I bought Dick and me Saint's tickets. Even though Dick is the biggest Saints fan ,it was my very first Saints game, so we were equally excited. They lost this one...but as it turned out, that didn't matter much. Super Bowl Champs!!!

A lot has happened..

I havent blogged since November and so many things have happened. In the beginning of December we adopted another dog and named him Mosely. He's the best puppy and Lizzie loves him. They grow up so fast.
