Our News!

So we have some big news around here - we're expecting! Our little one is due to arrive December 31.

Today was our 13 week ultrasound!

This picture was taken a week ago. Still wearing my "regular" jeans and shirt here but definitely have a bigger belly than normal. Maternity clothes are starting to be more comfortable these days.

Girls' Night Out

My friend, Wanda is visiting from Oman so it was a great opportunity for a fun girls' night out.  
First we headed to dinner. (Left to Right) Amy, Wanda, Menda, Jennifer and me.
My kind of dinner! Nothing like being stuffed on king crab legs and coconut cream pie.

And then a show! My second time. Still funny. Still appalling.

A Night at the Ballpark

Last night I joined my coworkers for a game at Wrigley. The lure for me was time with the girls and also skybox seats. Let's just say, I wish I could watch every game that way. A buffet of goodies to eat in your own private space? Yes, please. Dessert cart? Yes, please. Cappuccino bar with your very own barista? Yes, please. I also appreciated that we had heaters while everyone else at the game was bundled up in sweatshirts freezing. But, alas, I won't be experiencing that luxury again any time soon. I'm afraid it's back to the bleacher seats for me next time.  
The evening was so foggy. At times you couldn't see the ball and could barely make out the players in the outfield.
With some of my favorite girls at the game.

Around Here

We've been really busy around here but mostly on home improvement projects. In the past month, we've had a tree removed from our front yard, a new roof put on our house and new sod put down in our front yard. Next up - refinishing our deck and, eventually, refinishing our hardwood floors in the kitchen.
Our new sod! I really wish I had a before picture. Just imagine a yard that looks like dirt with no grass. Also, there used to be a huge evergreen tree in the right-hand corner next to the bushes.
A dumpster full of shingles! A new roof is one more "to do" marked off our list.
