Headed to the happiest place on earth.....

Well it's been an interesting few weeks since I last posted. I have started to feel better and I think the morning sickness has finally passed which is great! I just wish I could get more energy back.

I was in TJ MAXX the other day paying for something and the clerk proceeded to ask me: "There's a baby in there isn't there?" I was in so much shock that I almost didn't know how to reply. I replied to her that yes there was. She then proceeded to keep talking about how cute and round my belly was. I will go ahead and tell you it was the most awkward conversation I have ever had with a random retail clerk. I have a feeling it's just going to get worse the bigger I get! I guess these are the joys of being pregnant!

It's hard to believe that 4 years ago on May 28 I married the most wonderful man! God has truly blessed me with such a wonderful husband. This next week we are taking a anniversary trip to Disney World in Orlando. I am really excited, just hope it doesn't rain the whole time we are there! It's hard to believe that this time next year we will have a new addition to our family!

I can honestly say that God is truly blessing John and I here in Tallahassee. We have really gotten to know some great new friends and our church has been wonderful. Also, John's job is finally getting to where he is starting to enjoy it! Praise God!! It just took a while for him to get a handle on it and learn the new product. It's funny how impatient we get in wanting things to go our way, but it's God's time table that always seems to work out the best. I thank God for putting us here in Florida and look forward to all the things in store for our future!

Well I am in need of a nap and need to finish some laundry I started so better close this entry up. Until till next time.....

Mickey Mouse here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Trips, Graduations and Birthdays have kept me busy...........

Well I know it's been a while since I have written an entry, so I thought I would finally sit down and do it. It has been really crazy lately, which is one reason I haven't written.

Last week, I got to spend several days in Mississippi with my parents, which was lots of fun. My sister Katy and her husband Craig graduated from Vet school. It's pretty cool that we now have two doctors in our family!! It sounds so crazy calling them Dr. Katy Harrell and Dr. Craig Harrell. We also received a surprise on their graduation day finding out that Katy is having a baby boy!! They are super excited. It was really funny due to the fact that Katy told us her appointment to find out the sex was the day after graduation. Boy, did she have us fooled!!

My pregnancy is going good. I actually went back to the doctor today and got to hear the baby's heart beat and see its arms and legs. It was the most amazing thing to see it moving around inside of me. I get to find out the baby's sex in 8 weeks, which I am excited about. The morning sickness has gotten better, still have some nausea every now and then. I just feel so blessed that God has given us this special gift that is growing inside of me!!

This weekend our church is hosting a woman's tea, in which I have volunteered to decorate a table. I am getting to use my Grandmothers china and my crystal glasses, which I am super excited about. I have not gotten the chance to use it much, so it will be fun to pull it out of the china cabinet.

This past weekend I had my 28 b'day. It's hard to believe I am 28. It seems like yesterday I was living at home with mom and dad in grade school at PCS. Boy, doesn't time fly!! My wonderful husband surprised me with a ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins, which happens to be my favorite! He also took me to this really nice Italian restaurant, but my favorite gift of all was the sewing machine he got me!! Now I just have to figure out how to use it!!

Well over all things are going great. John's job has been a lot better lately, which is definitely an answered prayer!! I continue to be thankful for all God is doing in our life!!
