Vegas baby!

Our Anniversary trip to Vegas was so fun. We stayed at the Grandview at Las Vegas, which are condos. Our room was 800 square feet, with a full kitchen, living room, bedroom with a King bed, Jacuzzi, and beautiful bathroom with a separate shower. It was so nice. We had a nice pool too, and spent time lounging around and getting a nice tan. We spent all of Saturday on the strip, and went to so many places, but the best places were Madaam Tussaud's Wax Museum, where we met a lot of stars that seriously looked real, and then later that night we saw "The Phantom Spectacular" at The Venetian, which truly was spectacular! It's the same show as The Phantom of the Opera, just a very slightly shorter version, and had a lot more special effects, including dropping a huge chandelier 10 feet above the audience's heads, and fireworks and amazing sets that looked so real. We both really enjoyed it! We went shopping, and I bought this really pretty wrap dress that can be so many different styles of dresses, some of which will be good maternity styles! I love it. We enjoyed an yummy buffet and ate at Planet Hollywood's restaurant, which was also very yummy, and fun to see tons of props used in movies. On Monday, we saw the Hoover Dam, which was my first time seeing it. It was so cool! Very large, and amazing how much power is generated from that thing! Then we drove home. We had so much fun, and it was just a wonderful way to celebrate our 2 year anniversary and news that we are having a baby! Here are so pictures for your enjoyment

I'm gonna be a Mommy in May!

I'm Pregnant!!!!!!!

I just found out on September 11th that we will be expecting in May! I am still in shock, and I don't think reality has fully set in for me or Scott, but we are so excited. It was perfect timing, since I found out right before our 2 year Anniversary trip to Vegas. Here is what happened. I found out that morning at about 5:50 am, because I honestly couldn't hold it anymore, since I didn't pee all night. I found out all by myself in the bathroom, since everyone was still asleep. When I was waiting for the results to come up, I kept thinking I was setting myself up for disapointment, and I was so nervous. Then I thought that maybe it could happen, and then at the last second I pretty much decided it was impossible, when the Clear Blue test came up saying "PREGNANT"! I just stood there stunned, and then a huge smile crossed my face, and I started jumping up and down screaming silently to myself since everyone was still asleep, and I didn't want Scott to find out yet, since I planned to surprise him later in St. George. So I went back to bed and acted like nothing happened. It was SO HARD. Of course I didn't sleep a wink. As soon as Scott woke up and left to go to a quick work meeting before we left, I ran upstairs and woke up my mom. She was so surprised! All the way to St. George, my stomach was turning as I tried to keep it from Scott! I texted a couple friends, and told them I couldn't hold it in much longer! I am so bad at surprises! I give everything away with my face, but somehow Scott didn't see it! What I did was I bought 2 onesies, 1 fro a boy and 1 for a girl, and put my pregnancy test in between them in a bag for him to open. It was so cute. When I gave it to him on Dixie Rock, he picked the clothes up and didn't realize what they were at first, and then his eyes got big and he said, "Honey?" "Honey!" And when I pulled out the pregnancy test and showed him, he was so thrilled! He hugged and kissed me over and over and said that was the best present he couls have gotten. It was such a wonderful experience. Definitely the second happiest day of my life. (First would be my wedding day) Scott was so dotting for the whole rest of the weekend. It's like he saw me in a different light, a pregnant light :) It was so cute. We called our family and friends and drove the rest of the way to Vegas. More to come on the Vegas trip in another post, since this is big enough!

One change to previous posting...

In regards to the post below, aparently that video is not the same one that will be shown to students. That one will be available to view tomorrow. Hopefully there is no political agenda attached with it, like this other one. I still feel that video below was directed at our children, by the celebrities, and is not right. It still makes my skin crawl.

I am shocked and appauled!

We are NOT a servant to the President! He is a servant to the people, for the people, by the people!! We are NOT in a dictatorship! This video will be shown to our kids in school on Tuesday! It is surrounded by all these good thoughts, but watch till the end. And I quote, " I Pledge to be a servant to Barack Obama". Do we want our kids to see this? It makes me sick.

More about this when I can control my language.
