Pink Shirt

My husband is not one of those guys who will ever wear a pink shirt. He doesn't necessarily think it is bad if another guy does, but he will NOT wear pink....

If I keep doing laundry, he may have to change that philosophy!

I do the laundry in our house 95% of the time. Occassionally, Dan will do a load but the vast majority of the time it is me.

Last night, I decided to get all caught up on the laundry before we left town for Christmas. Somehow, Daniel's white "Superhero in training" shirt (he does love random t-shirts) got thrown in with a load of reds...I'm blaming it on the baby (not really)...she has definitely given me pregnancy brain, though!! :) His white shirt with blue writing and trim is now a lovely shade of pale pink.

Personally, I think it is kinda pretty...when I told him that, he told me I could have it now. Guess I won't be getting him to wear that pink shirt to my office Christmas party tonight!!

Random Picture Post

I have been promising pictues of several things for a while now and I am just now getting to fulfill that promise! I am sorry that the sonogram pictures are so blurry. (Sono pics aren't always that great anyway, right!!) I kept trying to scan them more clearly but it just wouldn't work, so you will have to use your imagination!!
My daughter, the toe sucker....yes, that is her foot in her mouth. That seems to be her favorite place to keep it!

This is the outfit that we bought right after we found out she was a she! Daniel wanted something a little sportier but let me have something with pink lace as well!

Our first Christmas tree! Daniel ordered it off of Ebay and we were pleasantly surprised with the results! Now I just need to get something to put on top.

We had a blast Friday night but did not have anyone at the hotel to take our picture before we went to the symphony. My purse was kinda small and I didn't want to take the camera with us later so we had to improvise.

My snazzy hubby!!

Daniel has now become obsessed with taking pictures of my belly...he did it Friday night before the symphony and then Saturday night before we went to Jon and Mandy's for dinner...It is definitely starting to poke out there. I was a few days shy of 22 weeks when these were all taken. Not my favorite pics but I guess they are part of history, huh!?!

Now on to Christmas!!

Date Night

I am so excited about tomorrow night!

A few weeks ago, Daniel and I decided we were going to go to the Christmas program at the Dallas Symphony. We have been twice before and we have tickets for tomorrow night. We decided to plan on getting a little dressed up and going to dinner before the Symphony.

When I got home from work last night, Dan handed me two pieces of paper and told me to "see if this would work."

He had made reservations for dinner at Riccardi's and then a room at the Hyatt downtown. What a sweetie!! I am really looking forward to an evening away for just the two of us in the middle of the holiday season bustle.

I can't wait!

(Of course, in true frugal Dan fashion, he got the hotel room off of Priceline and then found a $25 gift certificate for the restaurant on sale for $5...I'm not complaining...I get a fun night out and he gets to save money!)

What a difference a year makes....

Sorry I have been MIA for a while....we have been super busy at work. I come home from work, eat dinner, get my stuff ready to go to the gym the next day, and then crash!! I keep thinking about all of the things I want to post about, but then I go to sleep instead. We are getting into a better routine at work so hopefully that will improve. :)

Daniel and I were talking yesterday about how much can totally change in a year. This time last year, I could barely move because we had finished running the White Rock Marathon, we didn't have a Christmas tree because we were still living in our little apartment, and I only put up a few decorations.

When we had this conversation, we were sitting in front of the fire burning in the fireplace, looking at our newly decorated Christmas tree (I will post a picture and more about that looks great), and talking about the fact that we will be chasing a little crawler this time next year.

I love waiting to see what God has in store for us next....
