follow through

as promised, here's a new blog post. i've been procrastinating and putting this off, not because i don't want to keep things updated, but because my accelerated A&P class i'm taking this summer is very demanding, and by the time i'm done with homework, it's time for bed. and it's about a million degrees in our upstairs, and the computer revolts when it's that hot... but, i'm seizing the moment and actually updating this, with photos.
i had some beautiful tulips bloom this spring, they were beautiful. they've since died, and are being moved this fall, so they are no longer there, but they sure brightened things up for a bit :)

this may, one of my best friends, Joy, a "very special friend" from YWAM got married. i was her maid of honor, and i helped with all the crafty stuff that she didn't want to have to deal with. :) she came out for our wedding and i made her be crafty, and she always vowed to get me back. well.....she did :) we did all the invitations, programs, favors, prayer was a lot of work, but it was so much fun. i feel so blessed to be such a part of her and her new hubby's day, it was such a beautiful and special wedding. they have since moved to kentucky (russ is in the army) which was hard, but i know that that is where God wants them to be for this season. plus, almost 4 years of our friendship was long distance (montana to texas) so we know we can keep in touch and stay close despite the miles between us. plus, i told her she has to come back in the spring to meet the

yupper, more news. mat and i are expecting a little bundle of joy, due to arrive december first. we found out the day before my parent's wedding anniversary, so we were able to share the news on the anniversary. it was so cool. we told mat's mom soon after, and we told mat's dad on his birthday. we went home for mother's day to break the news to the rest of our family and friends, which was great. we almost gave my grandma a heart attack, it was so funny (funny because she didn't have a heart attack....haha) we are set to find out on monday the gender, that way we can be that must more prepared for the baby's arrival (if it's even possible to be "prepared") in between classes and homework, i've been reading anything and everything, from what kind of crib or car seat to buy, to breast feeding how-to's, and everything in between. my head is going to explode.... yikes! :) i finish with class next wednesday. i plan on spending the first weekend doing big fat nothing, just relaxing and not thinking....getting a massage, maybe a pedicure, fun stuff. after that, we can dive into registering, painting the nursery, reading even more about preparing and life after baby, etc. i'm also looking for creative DIY decorating ideas (or websites) for the nursery. if you have any, please pass them along.

that's the biggest news of the past little while. i'm hoping once class is over, my free time will be oozing out everywhere (haha!) and i can keep this more up to date.... fingers are crossed on that one.
