Oh the songs he sings.... (Elton John that is)

I was listening to the radio and heard this Elton John song. No, it's not a new song nor is it one I hadn't heard, but the words hit me in ways like it never has before... probably better with the melody to listen to but...

Hey you, you're a child in my head
You haven't walked yet
Your first words have yet to be said
But I swear you'll be blessed

I know you're still just a dream
your eyes might be green
Or the bluest that I've ever seen
Anyway you'll be blessed

And you, you'll be blessed
You'll have the best
I promise you that
I'll pick a star from the sky
Pull your name from a hat
I promise you that, promise you that, promise you that
You'll be blessed

I need you before I'm too old
To have and to hold
To walk with you and watch you grow
And know that you're blessed

Showers of love!

I am so lucky to have the friends and family that I have!! The support everyone has shown during this pregnancy is so awesome! I was thrown not just one great shower, but two! The first was with my friends and family and the second from my work friends!! I am beyond appreciative of the gifts that were given and the time and energy sacrificed on our behalves!

Sunny Honey

You are my Sunshine, my only Sunshine.
When you're not happy, my skies are grey...
This is my cat. Can you guess her name? Sunshine is such a fitting name. In fact, my niece Audrey named her when Sunny was just a kitten. We got her from my mother n law, brought her home and made her ours. She is sooo funny. It's been a rough relationship between her and me but she has turned into my little princess and I couldn't imagine my life without her. She started off wild and would tear up carpet, bite, and run around crazy. She is mellow now. She will still have an occasional bite, but she is learning!! Since she was declawed when she was little it's her only defense--but she doesn't use it as a defense. She bites me on the nose at night while I am sleeping to wake me up. I will never get used to the midnight bite!!! She tells me when her food bowl is almost empty-- Actually she tells anyone that will listen!! She loves being outside. She stays in the backyard but will go under the house in the heat of day or cold of night. Most of the time she is an indoor kitty though!

Home Sweet Home

MY house....
I couldn't imagine living anywhere else!! Although, of course I could! My neighborhood is quiet and all of the houses have character. When we were looking for houses, I saw this one and knew it was THE ONE. I wouldn't settle for anything else...

It was built in 1921 and literally looks like a little gingerbread house! We dug up the hedges that were in front and I planted rose bushes which bloom every spring! I love having fresh cut roses in the house! My yard looks the best in summer when the grass is green and the flowers are in bloom! It's definately not easy to keep up landscaping and I have sincere respect and admiration for those who have the imaculate yards! This is as much as I can handle, and at times too much!!!

Every rose bush is different. The Oklahoma roses which are red (not shown) have the most scent. There were two rose bushes already here when I moved in that stand as tall as the house. The stems are so thick, as if you bought them from the florist. I love these purple roses (shown below) when they start to die they turn a lilac color that is just gorgeous!!

My NEW BATHROOM!! Can you tell I'm excited about it? It's taken a long time to get it to look like this!!

A lot of people's blood, sweat, tears (and not to mention $$)!! I am so glad it is finished... now just finishing touches need to go up such as wall hangings, mirrors, etc.

But I have to say the first bubble bath I took was well worth the wait!!

I picked out the fixtures at and am lucky that I have a dad in the busines :) I am pretty decisive when it comes to picking things out, so it wasn't very difficult when I was deciding how I wanted everything to look!

My mother n law put the wallpaper up and did a beautiful job! Everything turned out better than I thought it could!
Thanks to EVERYONE that helped make it happen!

So close to the next chapter

Well, it's not long until she's here!!! She will be the life of my life the pride of my pride!! I can't wait to see her face and hear her voice. What will she look like? Will she have my lips? Jason's chin? My grandma's eyes? Will she be blonde or brunette? So many questions need answers!! In less than 5 weeks my life will change!
