ALL ABOARD!!

First of all, let me say, Happy Easter everybody.  I know that I've been a real slacker in blogging.  I've been reading blogs, just not commenting or writing any. 

I have great news though....my ticket for the mommy train has been punched.  :)  We're expecting and due December 1st. 

Here's a shot a of my seven week baby bump.  We're so excited!  Our families are also over the moon for us.  As are most of our friends.  As you guys remember if you've been following me a while, I went through a period where I didn't want kids at all. 

Other things going on in our lives is that I'm going back to school for my bachelors degree.  I decided to major in Health Information Technology.  Which I can do a million things with that.  I'm leaning towards healthcare/hospital administration.  But, we'll see what happens when I graduate, which will be about three years from now since I just started.

We're also in the middle of moving.  The weekend we went out of town to tell my folks about the baby (the first weekend of this month) our house got broken into.  We weren't here, so no one was hurt and nothing was taken that can't be replaced, but it still jolted us pretty bad, so we decided it's time to move on.  With the baby coming we've officially outgrown this place anyway cuz it's only a one bedroom.  Which is great for me, the hubs and the beagle, but now we're going to be more than that. 

There is a building here at home that's downtown and it's been renovated into luxury lofts and it's all secure and monitored 24/7/365, so we thought that would be a much better place for us to raise our family.

Here are some pics of the new apartment:

This picture came out a little dark, but all of these were taken with my phone, so I guess they didn't turn out too bad.  :)  This is standing in the kitchen and looking into our living room.  Love the giant picture windows and all the natural light we'll be getting.  We also have an amazing view of downtown, which I didn't take pictures of since it was during the day.  After I move in I'll take some pictures of that for you guys.

This is standing against the picture windows facing the opposite direction into the kitchen.  The living room and kitchen are all one room.  Love the cherry stain on the woodwork.  It shows dust pretty bad, but I love how it looks.  Very elegant and classy.

This is standing against the far wall looking across the living room.  It's pretty large, we actually have more space than we have stuff to put in it.  Which isn't always a good thing.  :) 

 This is still in the living room and looking down our rather long hallway.  There isn't any carpet in the apartment except for the bedrooms.  Everything else is cement.  It's a historical building and in order to keep the historical value they weren't allowed to carpet the entire apartment, just the bedrooms.  But we're going to get a large area rug for the living room and a runner for the hallway, so hopefully that'll make it easier and cut down on the echo.  Which is terrible.  Much worse than I thought it would be for some reason.

Our bedroom.  Nothing special here.  We do have a bathroom in here though, there's also a guest bathroom in the hallway.  Didn't take pictures of those.  Didn't see a need.  A bathroom's a bathroom right?

And, this is the baby's room.  When I get this all set up and decorated I'll be sure to take pictures of if and post them on here.

Well, I guess that's all I have for today.  Lots of stuff going on the next few months.  Between school, moving and the baby coming I can't promise how often I'll have the time to post, but I'll try to keep you guys updated as much as I can.

Happy blogging my friends.  Sorry I was absent for so long again, hopefully I'll be able to keep this up more since I'm sure I'll have tons of news in the following months.
