Well ladies, the move is OVER! Thank goodness! Now the
stressful fun part starts!
I actually missed most of the move (bummer-ha) because I had to work Saturday (the event went great)! So when I got off work, I went to the new house and so much had been moved. I was shocked. We worked like slaves Saturday afternoon and Sunday to get everything moved over and started unpacking Sunday night! I have to say that without my mom and hubs parents, we wouldn't have made it!
So far, I have settled and decorated:
- Spare room (not 100% complete because the headboard isn't built yet but the new comforter looks great)
- Kitchen (well it's gotta be painted but it's all organized and decorated for the most part)
- Master Bathroom (well I still have to find another rug to put down but for now it will do)
Um, ok so it's not exactly settled and decorated 100% but I have made tons of progress. Hubs almost has all the blinds up and our new desk arrived yesterday and hubs put that together. It wasn't the most fun project for him but it was pretty quick and it looks great! But guess what happened... our monitor for our computer broke... sign we need a laptop?? I think so :) However, with a baby on the way, laptop must wait a little while!
A few other minor setbacks...
- Sunday we had no heat! And it was COLD in GA on Sunday. We had two space heaters running and it was cooollldddd! But that has been fixed. Our heat runs on gas and apparently it hadn't been turned on just yet!
- This house has a brand new water heater... well it isn't doing it's job! It isn't heating and it is making me ANGRY! i have now taken a total of three cold showers and I don't mean kinda cold, I mean FREEZING COLD! We are supposed to have that fixed ASAP!
- Then there's the ever so lovely remote control fans!! Cool right?? Um, no! They aren't working in any of the three bedrooms. And we have no idea what's going on because there are no instructions anywhere in this house! Frustration?? YES! We must sleep with a fan on and we have now done without one for three nights! Hopefully that will be fixed soon!
I realize these are really minor things... but I wanted to whine for a moment :)
Thank you for your many well wishes for our moving weekend! We were really blessed with good weather. It only rained Saturday morning then it was over! God is good!
And speaking of blessings and God being so wonderful and good... we just got back from the doctor. I am 12 weeks and 2 days pregnant and we have a super healthy heartbeat, 154! Our little one is a growin'! I can't wait to find out what he/she is! :) We have decided to wait until our 20 week visit to find out! I was considering doing a 4-D at 16 weeks to see, but we are going to wait and do the 4-D a little later in my pregnancy! One more week and I am outta the 1st trimester (yippee)!! Can I get some energy back please and thank you? But how blessed I was not to be sick one single time!! NOT ONCE did I feel nauseous! AMAZING! God has blessed us with so much! We are forever grateful! I am reminded daily that He reigns above all things and loves me no matter how awful of a sinner I am! I am His child and I am so beyond blessed to say that!
My Dr told me that in 4 weeks I have another appointment and that at that time I will decide if I want to have the quad screening! You can read all about that screening here! I won't post it all on here because it would take forever! I want to but I would love to hear all of your opinions on it :) So let's hear it ladies...

Friday, March 27, 2009
Saturday morning I will be at work, we have a big event from 10:30 - 3:30. And I am pretty sure that this is what we will be dealing with... (cue thunder)
My mom is coming in town which is always exciting and I took Monday off of work to try and get some things organized in the house! So at least I actually get a weekend day back even though I have to work Saturday!

I will do a before and after series on our sweet little new house! So today it the BEFORE :) We will be painting and working on lots of things over the next several months. The entire house was repainted before we bought it so it's in good shape it's just not the colors I want. The outside of the house is kind of a sage green and the shutters are a brick red. We will be painting the house but I am not sure what color yet (any and all suggestions are welcome). The shutters are going to be black!
Hubs was opening a bottle of non alcoholic champagne to celebrate our closing!! It was pretty good :)
Laundry room (right past the kitchen) Look at this amazing storage space :)
Master bedroom. It's bigger than it looks!
The foyer when you walk in the front door. HARDWOOD! I wish it was throughout!! I love it!

So sorry for my absence this week. It's been a crazy week at work and at home!!
Hubs and I at the reception!
Our buddies at the wedding (basically the only people we knew)
Again at the reception!
Grooms poker cake :) so cute!
So onto some serious HUGE, exciting, BIG BIG news!! Hubs and I are now proud owners of a house!! :) We are so super excited. I will be sharing lots of news about this over the next couple of weeks but I had to share my excitement :)
Here's what we know about it (well some):
3 BR, 2 bath! It was built in the 60s! One of our best friend's grandmas lives next door! Everything on the inside has been completely redone. New painted walls (which I will be repainting again in time). New carpet throughout. New tile in all bathrooms and kitchen. New cabinets in kitchen and bathrooms. I mean inside, it looks brand new. It's crazy. It has new door knobs, new stainless appliances (except fridge which we will be purchasing this weekend). I will post more pics later of the inside, but here is the outside. There is work to be done. Landscaping to be done, but we are so excited to have our OWN place. There are of course things we want to do, and they will be done over time! But first things first, we will be fixing the fence in the backyard. Some trees have fallen on it. No window coverings so I am ordering all new blinds today (we are going for the white faux wood ones)! And Saturday we are off to try to find a fridge, new couch and love seat and new desk!! :) NEW NEW NEW!! Yippee!
Here is the new humble abode!! :) (as you can see it has a huge beautiful front yard!!)

I will be heading there early in the morning for a wedding. It's about a 5 and a half hour drive from over here in Smalltown, GA!
We are going for a wedding for one of Hubs friends from college at Auburn!! It will be a lot of fun I am sure. From what I hear, that family knows how to PARTAY! I just hope I can sustain enough energy to actually look alive :) I have been so tired I have felt completed UNENERGIZED (if that's even a word)! But I do plan on sleeping most of the way there and getting a great nights rest tonight!!
I will make sure to take lots of pictures to share!!
I hope you ladies have a great weekend and have lots of fun!!

...to Ellen today!!
According to UsMagainze.com, Melissa (from the Bachelor) will be on there today spilling her guts. I will be rushing home at lunch to make sure I get the DVR set to record today!!!
You can read a little about the interview here.
She just confirmed everything that I believed to be true:
Jason's an ASS!
I am so glad she came out and told some truth, because we've gotten nothing from Jason and Molly but LIES and BS!! This interview confirmed for me how full of it ABC is and the producer of The Bachelor is so full of *hit!!! I can't believe Jason dis that to her. UGH! What a bastard (as Melissa likes to say)!! :)
Melissa has moved on and is dating a guy named Ty (how ironic!!) I was so happy to read this interview... make sure to check it out!!
EDITED TO ADD:
CHECK OUT THIS INTERVIEW WITH MIKE FLEISS... He completely throws Jason under the bus. I mean WOW!!
EDITED AGAIN TO ADD:
HERE ARE JASON AND MELISSA'S EMAILS THAT ACCESS HOLLYWOOD GOT A HOLD OF! Such a shame!!!

So the Vet called Hubs and left him a message...
"This is Animal Medical Clinic. Dr. Durham wanted me to call and tell you that Dansberry is awake and doing fine!!"
Dansberry?????? hahaha!! Um, it's DANSBY! I laughed hysterically and can't tell the story without cracking up!!
But I am so thankful my baby is ok!! :) Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers!!
Til tomorrow... I am off to attempt a little cardio... my nauseated stomach and pounding head says go to bed... but my growing arse says go do a little running :) So I am going!!
But I am LIVID!!! Jason Mesnick (AKA The Bachleor) is an ASS! I knew what was coming (thanks to Reality Steve) but nothing could have prepared me for the train wreck that was to come at the After the Final Rose!! I knew the whole story. I thought I had prepared myself well, but NO! I was so sickened by what took place I am still not over it!!
