News and a Meme

So, for all 2 people who read this blog... the reason I have been gone for a bit is due to some exciting news. That's right, we are expecting! My husband and I are SO excited that the Lord has blessed us with this new life!!

The reason I haven't been blogging is because of my new friend "morning sickness". Oh, how I hate morning sickness... first, because it isn't just in the morning it is ALL.DAY.LONG! Second, I am not actually throwing up, I am just nauseous. This is one time in my life where I wish I would throw up because maybe it would make me feel better!

So, now for some fun... I was tagged for a Meme by

In the Past year (I'm using 2007):
What was your most embarrassing moment?

Hmmm... this is a hard one. I guess when you get older, you don't really get embarrassed easily! I would have to say it was when I was taking my niece to the bathroom, and she yelled out "I think someone is going poop!"... and in fact, we walked out at the same time as the person in the stall next to us who was as embarrassed as me!

What are you proudest of achieving?
In the past year I am most proudest of finishing my internship, passing the exam to become a registered dietitian, and getting licensed!

What would you do differently with the benefit of hindsight?
I would call my friends more often. We all recently got married or had children, and I think we have all been "too busy" to call one another. I wish I would have called more.

What did you love about last year?
I loved being married! We had a pretty rough year with our car accident. It happened in July, and I am still going through physical therapy and the legal stuff is STILL going on. It definatly brought my husband and I closer.

In the Next year (I'm using 2008):
What do you want to say you accomplished next year on this day?
That I have a safe, natural birth and deliver a beautiful blessing in September!

What are you looking most forward to in the next year?
Our baby! I am looking forward to having this new life grow inside of me and learn more about myself in the process.

What goal of yours are you most tantalized by?

If you knew you only had the next year to live, what would you make sure to do? What is stopping you?
Spend more time with friends. Travel. Laugh more. Worry less.

Look what I found, look what I found!

I AM SO EXCITED! We have been trying to slowly decorate our home, and the most recent room has been the office. I have really wanted a chair in here to have a "reading nook". SO......... Look what I found at Goodwill today for $4.99 -

Ok, yes I said four dollars and ninety-nine cents... SO EXCITED! How cute is this antique chair? One leg is a TINY bit wobbly, but nothing you notice sitting in it.

I found it as soon as I walked in the store, and didn't want anyone else to have it. I picked it up, not knowing it weighed at least 35 pounds, and realized I couldn't exactly carry it around with me while I shopped for other bargains.

So, I took it to the front and asked if they could hold it... they said yes, but I was still paranoid that someone else would grab up my amazing find! As I kept shopping, about every 10 seconds, I would glance up front making sure my new treasure wasn't being taken to a new home. Seriously, I was ready to fight anyone who even thought about touching it.

I know, I know... I sound insane, but FOUR DOLLARS AND NINETY-NINE CENTS! Who wouldn't want to strap it to their back so no one else could take it?

Anyways... I am excited! Now, I am off to finish it off by draping it with the asparagus colored woven throw I found at Tuesday Morning for about $5! YAY!
