Just wanted to let everyone know that my dishwasher is officially up and running! Now Eva and I just have to dirty up enough dishes to run it. :) Maybe I'll make us some cookies or something.

Moving On Up!

Greg and I just moved out of student housing and into our new townhouse. I was so excited to move into this place because it is brand new and so beautiful. We did run into a few problems with the move in date due to the contractors. Which I have to say are horrible people who never do what they say they are going to do (no offence to anyone who is, or knows a good contractor). Anyways I don't want to get started on all of that. So here are a few pictures of our 3 bedroom, 2 bath. I'm still moving everything in so some of the walls are pretty bare, but I just wanted to show you my favorite rooms.
Here is our living room I love the fire place and the sliding glass doors that lead to our little deck.

My most favorite room of all is the kitchen! It is so beautiful with real tile floors(no linoleum) granite counter tops and a pantry.

OK so the bedroom is still really bare and the picture doesn't show how big it really is but you can see the door that leads to another deck which is so cool to have right off the bedroom.

I never thought I would get to the point when I would live in a place with a beautiful master bathroom. I love having so much room to get ready in.

And maybe the best thing of all is my DISHWASHER! Greg and I have been married for 4 1/2 years and this is my first dishwasher. Although I'm pretty upset because those stupid contractors still need to come and hook it up. I'm so close yet so far from getting to enjoy the finer things in life. I just keep telling myself," you went this long with out it so a few more days won't kill you". Although while I'm washing my dishes by hand I can't help but glare at it.

So Greg and are a pretty happy with our new place. My only qualifications where that we had to get a place with a dishwasher and 3 bedrooms. Greg's was that we got a place with a garage. So I'm so happy we found a place that met all our expectations and more. It's about time that we have a really nice place to live. I just love it.

5 months and counting.

Well today I start month number 5. Things are definitely getting better too. I'm not sick at all and even though I still get tired a lot I feel like my energy is returning. And as you can see my pooch is getting more.....poochier. I try telling Eva that there is a baby in mommy's tummy but I don't think she gets it yet. Now she points to her own stomach and says, "baby." But I think once my stomach starts to get really big she will figure out that something is going on. We get to find out what the baby is in just a few more weeks so I will let everyone know whether Eva will have a brother or a sister pretty soon. Does anyone what to make a guess?

Eva misses her Daddy

Now that Greg is gone every 10 days I can tell that Eva really notices when he is not around. She does little things that make me think that she misses him a lot. Like the other day she went into the closet and got out one of his hats. She looked at it and said, "Daddy" then wore it around the house for a while. It does look pretty cute on her and I'm sure Greg wouldn't mind if she wears it while he is gone. Then yesterday as we were in the car a truck drove by that looked a lot like Greg's and she immediately pointed and said, "Daddy." Although this time is was in a really sad tone. It just made me feel so bad. Talk about toughing at your heart strings. I just can't wait for Greg to be back on Thursday so they can spend some time together.
They really have fun and I think most of you would agree that there is just something about the way Daddy's play with their kids. Mommy's just can't ever seem to do it the same.

Well it looks like our little phone glitch only lasted for the day. Thankfully our cell phones are working fine now. I just thought I would let you all know so no one has any excuse not to give me a call.

Losing contact with the outside world!

Out of no where today Greg and my cell phone just stopped working. We still have power but every time we try to make a call or someone tries to call us the calls get dropped almost instantly. It's pretty frustrating because we don't have a land line so we kinda have no way (other than the computer) to get a hold of people. And I have to say sorry to my Aunt Rachel whom I was on the phone with when this happened. I really would call you back if I could. I'm guessing it's not our phones but the company because Greg and I have different phones so it's weird that they would both start dropping calls at the same time. Anyways i just thought I would post this on the blog so if anyone tries to call me you now know that I'm not trying to avoid you. It's not me it's the phone. Hopefully we can get this fixed soon.
