Some of My Favorite Things

Like everyone else, NieNie and her sweet blog has been inspiring me to try and be a better wife and adding to my list of things a good mom does (most come from you Mom :o) My Prince has pointed out that after reading Nie's blog, I am more optimistic and cheerful. I would like to apologize to my sweetheart for my occasional is usually because of my growing belly. Anyways, I am going to use our blog as he suggested, as my personal outlet, a journal of sorts.

~My Favorite Things~
***This week anyways (o:
1. Watching the leaves fall off the trees, especially when they land on my head like this morning.
2. Hearing my Jordy's voice in the background when I call home.
3. The puffy sheep on our way to the Dr.'s office...who has sheep?!
4. Prince's giggle at me when I am being silly.
5. Sweet wake-up kisses when Spook (that's what we call Nora) and I are napping.
And finally...
Watching the Prince cut his hair (o:

A Meme

My sister in law has tagged me with a meme. It sounded like fun so. The deal is that I have to post the fourth picture from my fourth folder. I did not expect this picture to be the one. *Tear. This is my brother in law Kip with his son Brody just shortly after they came home from the hospital. Kip is such a wonderful daddy! When I go home, I love to watch him with Brody, they are the best of friends. He also takes such good care of my sister/best friend. I remember wishing I could find a guy like that while standing in the reception line at their wedding my senior year. Well, I found mine and he is gets to show his wonderful daddy loves soon.

Thank you Jen for finding such a wonderful addition to the family. Thank you Kip for showing me a good example of what a husband and father should be. And of course, loves to the second man in my life BROD-MAN!!!

I now pass this meme tag on to Jen, Jessica Sharp and Deanna.

Life Changes...just fun new things

First of all, I have to brag about My Prince. His quartet placed 4th overall and 1st in their division. His chorus, The Saltaires, placed second overall. At the moment he was kind of bummed out because the scoring for all groups was a lot lower than expected. He's happy about it now though, it is, after all, a great accomplishment for a group that has been together for only a few months. As for me, I made through the weekend without my Protector and Cuddler. I have always been a girl who loves her blankie. Although it definitely helped me out when My Prince was gone, I definitely prefer him to be my Blankie. It's funny how the minute your constant leaves the bed you find yourself in a new place that doesn't feel much like home anymore. I am head-over-heels every day I wake up now that he is home.
Secondly...well, actually everything else that has been going on. I am now 8 months along and Little Nora has discovered the pirouette. Ouch! My Prince and I are at the halfway point in the semester...feels like we just started! He is learning the clarinet for a class and is excited to move to his next assignment-the strings. He really wants bass or cello. Also, on the Hangtime front, things are changing. After realizing that they get really excited to perform again after every acappella concert, the boys have decided to focus solely on their accappella songs. There is definitely more opportunities in that area so as a whole, they are like little kids at Christmas time. (o:

Hope all is going well everywhere else!
