No chilly tootsies here

Tomorrow this time I'll be preparing to become Mrs. Hall.
I'm sitting here at my Mom's, enjoying my last hour of calm before the wedding whirlwind begins.
Elena's coming over at 11 and then it starts...pick up cakes, pedicures, last minute errands...
Rehearsal's tonight. Can't wait to see all our family & friends.
Saturday morning its off to ?????? I still don't know where our honeymoon is - and if you know me, its been quite a great feat for Corey to keep this secret from me. He was smart - he didn't tell Kelly. Didn't tell Elena. Didn't tell my mom. Good man.
So now I end my last blog post as a single wild-cat. I've found my lobster and tomorrow I will promise to love him for the rest of my life.

Our peanut is growing!!

I can't believe how much has changed in the last 3 months.
I have serious baby bump thanks to little peanut - who, I might add, weighs all of 9 ounces.
Check out how he/she has grown.

Of course, Peanut had to give us a little tushy/extended legs shot, too:

The scan took forever because baby decided to flip upside down & bury his/her head into my pelvic bone preventing the tech from getting a better profile picture. After a can of apple juice, a few jumping jacks & several paces up & down the hallway, they finally gave up & sent me home.
I was quite satisfied with the pictures we did get, though. I still can't believe that those are pictures of what's inside me. Its surreal.
We also got our marriage license today. Makes everything so real. The wedding is next week - I can't believe it.
My birthday is Friday, but it seems to be fading into the background as we prepare for next week.
8 days...

Glad I've never received THIS e-mail

Just another way to make sex THAT much more impersonal.
Now you can send an e-card to tell a recent sex partner you've got the clap or other form of STD. There's even one for HIV.
Do me a favor, if you're brave enough to not use a condom, put on your big-girl panties & tell him in person...or at least on the phone. If you remember his name or even exchanged numbers, that is.
Hurrah for my monogamous relationship. So happy I don't have to deal with something like that.
Oh...and just in case you are into that sort of thing, there's always this place.

Showers of Happiness

My bridal shower was Sunday. It was great. I had a wonderful time & everyone did such a nice job decorating & what-not. I loved it.
What didn't I love? The silly bow-hat I had to wear:

Who am I kidding? I ate it up!!

Another great thing about my shower? Getting all these girls together for a photo:

Thanks to everyone for a great time!!
