I < 3 Target

I seriously love Target. I was one of the lucky ones that snatched the $5 off any Merona hand bag (no exclusions) and then headed to the clearance section and found the cutest bag for free--did you hear that FREE!!
I'm sorry to gloat since the coupon is no longer available, but I am just too excited not to share!

Funny, funny...

So you may remember this post where I won a prize for having a dirty house. Well this is what Wesley said the minute we walked through the door after church today...
"Why is this mess still here?!"
Yeah, tell me about it!

I know you've been waiting by your computer all morning, just dying to hear the big news! ;) While I was getting ready this morning, I was preparing my speech to tell all of those out there that knew we were having a girl just how wrong they were, but instead....I get to tell you how right you are and Grandma Atkinson will be so happy that she predicted yet another great grandchild! We are so excited!
We were disappointed with our ultrasound tech. The pictures were terrible and she didn't even capture a profile pic of her. :( These were probably the best ones, but aren't they so sweet--such tiny fingers and toes!! It made it all so real! We can't wait to meet you little Megan!!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! We did! Saturday night, we got a pizza--yes, I ate pizza for the first time since being sick and I actually liked it! So, anyway, we ate pizza and then died our eggs. Kids make these traditions so much more fun!Then Sunday started out with Wesley finding his basket in the living room and then hunting for eggs. Which we did not take pictures of. (Unfortunately we had a lot of clouds and rain all day, so I think it kind of bummed me out with the picture taking.) Then we went to my parents house for brunch--we had my favorite egg quiches and banana chocolate chip muffins! There was another egg hunt, but still no pictures! Then we made our way to the Atkinson's house where we ate a yummy roast dinner and had another egg hunt. Wesley even went on a special clue hunt where he found a new Tonka Truck filled with more candy, but still not a single picture of all these fun events! Thanks family for making such a special day for our son! We really enjoyed it, too!

Oh, Boy!

Are we in for it! (Sorry for the teasing title--we won't know til Wednesday, remember--don't forget to vote!)
It was our turn for co-op on Friday and we had a lot of fun with all of those 8 wonderful kids, but we need to keep on eye on these 2!This is Haylee, Wesley's bestest friend. She's such a cutie and Wesley just follows her around and does whatever she tells him to do and this night she decided it was time to hold hands! Hopefully that's as far as it gets for the next 13 more years!FYI: In case you don't know what co-op is, it is the most amazing invention of all time! Adam and I watch 8 kids one weekend and then we get to go out the next 3 weekends! Adam and I have not ever had a regular dating schedule and this has been so wonderful to have some adult time on a regular basis. Thanks guys for including us in this great co-op group!

We Are So Excited!

We're going to...We're so excited we had to make a countdown chain--only 21 more days! We took advantage of that Give a Day, Get a Day promo that Disney was doing. We thought it would be fun to take Wesley before the baby comes and we can't go again for awhile. Plus all the rides Wesley can ride I can ride too (he's still a little short for most).

What's "It" Gonna Be?

I am now 18 weeks and I scheduled my ultrasound for Wednesday. We are so excited to find out what we're having and I'm so ready to start shopping! We would be excited to have a boy or a girl, but I'm a little nervous to have a girl and have to worry about doing her hair and making her all cute. I know it would be so fun, but seriously, what do you do with a girl?! What do you think we're having? You have until Wednesday to vote and I will make the announcement!
Update: It has been a tough 2nd pregnancy with being so sick. With Wesley I was sick up until my 2nd trimester and then the rest of the pregnancy was pretty much smooth sailing. I was counting down the days to the 2nd trimester this time just waiting for the vomiting and nauseousness to stop, but it never did. I was teased a few times by going a few days feeling great, but then it would come right back again. I took the throw up medicine the ER Doc gave me once and it stopped the vomiting, but I slept the whole day and I was winded just making Wesley some lunch. After that I went about a week and then it came back again for a day. And now I am on day 9 of freedom. I'm not going to say it's over because I jinx myself every time, so I have just been taking it a day at a time and today is a good day! :)

Funny story: At my appointment with the midwife yesterday, she was trying to find the heartbeat and she found it pretty quickly, but "he" ran away, so she searched again and found it again, but then "he" ran away again. This happened at least 3 more times. The whole while I would laugh cause I could feel "him" about to move. She finally got a faint enough heart beat for the amount of time she needed to. After she was done counting she said, "whew, you better watch out for this one!"

I did a partial photo shoot of this guy this morning and now I'm even more excited to meet our precious little one.
