Updated Pics

Here I am at 18.5 weeks. I am growing......

I found it!

If you know anything about me, you know that I am prone to losing things. I don't know just happens. I will say, "This is the best place in the world for...I will never forget about it." Then, I am wondering where in the heck did I put my much needed item. Well, Justin lost something and I had NOTHING to do with it! We have a great underwater camera case that is made for our digital camera. We used it a ton last summer when swimming and on vacation. Well, Justin needs it next week. He started looking for it like 3 weeks ago and had no luck what so ever! I was a little bothered because I didn't want him to buy another...I wanted him to find the lost one.

Today, before lunch, Justin announced that he was going home to do one final search for the camera. I knew what this meant...he was going to order another one this afternoon if he couldn't find the lost one. I had to help! Do you know how many diapers we could buy with that money? I had remembered seeing the case in our room. We got home and I looked under the bed and then under the nightstand. There it was. I was so pumped. Justin was so excited and now he owes me big time!

Looking back on the situation, I can say that I'm not too upset that it was lost. Justin cleaned out a storage closet and the garage looking for this case. I have been on him for months to clean those out!

Hope everyone has a Happy Wednesday.

I am missing my friend, Meredith!!!

Has anyone seen my friend, Meredith? I used to read her blog daily and now she hasn't blogged for over 1 month, but who's counting? Maybe this post will let her know how much the blogging world misses her!


Does Anyone Watch....

Justin and I are hooked on Arrested Development. It was on Fox and premiered November 2, 2003. We just finished season 1 and it was hilarious. Hopefully we will start on season 2 tonight. I highly suggest watching this series. I am also a little sad that we didn't watch it when it was on Fox.

Happy Birthday, Boots!

Today is a very special day at the Gregory House. Boots Gregory turns 3 years old today. It seems like just yesterday we picked up the little fur ball in North Austin. She is so sweet and always makes me smile. Everyone loves her whenever they meet her. I took her on a walk last night to kick off the celebration! I have to go buy her a new bone today just to let her know it's her special day. I will look at our grocery store in town and see if they have any dog ice cream. She loves that stuff but I only seem to find it in the big cities at HEB!

3 Cheers for David Cook!

I really can't believe David Cook won American Idol. I am so thrilled. Justin and I were absolutely shocked. I loved how he teared up at the end. I also loved how they brought out celebrities to sing with the contestants. My fav had to be the music montage with George Michael coming out at the end. I love him! I have to admit that it did stir up my old feelings of not getting to go to his concert when I was in 4th grade b/c something I did got me grounded and Delilah got to take her friend! Life was so not fair.

I was also very entertained by the questions that Justin would ask. Some of them included, "Are the Jonas Brothers really brothers? I guess we could call them a modern day Hanson." and "Who is the h*?l is One Republic?"

Indiana Jones comes out today. Justin and I are planning on going tomorrow night. The local 2 screen theatre here in town will be showing it. We are really pumped!

What did you think?

So, what did everyone think of AI last night? I really want David Cook to win but I think David A might have all of the teeny bopper crowd to pull him through. Who knows. During Season 6, Katherine McPhee out sang Taylor Hicks in the finale but he still pulled through as the victor. I really don't know what to think.

It was so hot here in Alpine yesterday. It got up to 96. I am so thankful that we don't have any humidity. I would be dying right now. Also, I woke up so thirsty yesterday. By lunch time, I was convinced I had gestational diabetes b/c I had already consumed 100 ounces of water. I had heard that extreme thirst was a symptom. Delilah convinced me that I was okay and probably didn't have anything wrong with me. She told me that pregnant women just get really thirsty. Any readers that have been preggo before, please let me know you were thirsty too!

We don't have much planned for this weekend. We don't observe Monday as a holiday, so I'll be in the office all day. I think it will be really quiet b/c most people will assume that we are closed.

I hope everyone has a happy Wednesday. Be sure and tune in tonight for the finale!

Happy Taylor Hicks Day!

Did you know that May 16th is Taylor Hicks Day in the state of Alabama? I wish I was going to be there to join in on the festivities! My friend Meredith has a friend named Claire who lives in Birmingham. I hope she throws a party in Taylor's honor. Some of you may be wondering what old Taylor is up to these days. I thought I might fill you in.....

According to Wikipedia (one of my favorite websites these days), he really hasn't been up to much in 2008. The only major thing in 2008 was that he was dropped from the Arista Records label. Don't worry, the Soul Patrol is alive and well! He also wrote a book in 2007 and was paid $750,000 for it. I need to put that on my list of summer reads.

I hope everyone enjoys Taylor Hicks Day. I will put a gray streak in my hair and wear my Soul Patrol T-shirt all day tomorrow!

Cook & Cowell

Last nights performance of American Idol was really good. I loved the fact that Simon told David A. that his rendition of "I Need Ya" by Chris Brown sounded a bit like a chihuahua trying to be like a tiger. It was perfect. David Cook did amazing. Simon declared that the night was won by Cook and Cowell. I really hope he wins. I need to call in and vote for him.

I can't wait for tonight's episode. They all get to go back to their hometowns. I hope David Cook gets a key to the city.

On another note, why does David A's dad ALWAYS wear a hat? Is he bald? Does he have an unusual birthmark? The guy just creeps me out. I am so glad he got his backstage pass taken away.

My prediction is that Syesha will go home tonight. We will all have to tune in and see.

Yummy Cinnamon Rolls

Justin and I went to Midland, Texas on Saturday and stayed at a Holiday Inn Express. I was speaking to Delilah SAturday night and she said, "Enjoy the cinnamon rolls." I had totally forgotten that Holiday Inn Express was famous for their cinnamon rolls on their "complimentary" breakfast bar. I went to bed dreaming of cinnamon rolls and told myself to wake up before 9:30 so that I could run downstairs and get some. I promptly got up at 9am on Sunday and was downstairs by 9:15. Guess what...there were no cinnamon rolls to be found. Just the empty spot where they should be. I went to the front desk and asked the girl if there were any more rolls. She told me she would ask the hostess. She came back out and said that the hostess didn't want to put anymore out b/c it was so close to 9:30. I asked her to go back in the room and please ask the hostess to put more out. It's not 9:30 yet and people are still filtering in for breakfast. The hostess came out and said, "You wanted to talk to me?" I explained the situation again and she said that she didn't want to put any out b/c if I only ate 1 then she would have to throw the others away and she didn't want to do that. I asked her again to please put some out and she turned away without saying anything. She then came out with the cinnamon rolls and I said thanks so much. She didn't say a word to me!!!!

I stayed calm the entire time and used the word please multiple times. The whole time I wanted to scream out, "I need cinnamon rolls." I'm glad a kept my cool! Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that a saw the lady throw out like 25 strips of bacon. I know that costs more than some cinnamon rolls.

We've all been waiting.....

Justin and I are having a BOY!!! We are so excited. I went in for a check up ultrasound last week and the little guy was not being modest at all. I guess he takes after his father already. We have decided on the name Chase Landon Gregory. I can't wait until we get to meet the little guy in late October. I have already warned Daine and Karina that their little girl will have someone chasing after her in a few months.

Now, let the shopping begin!!! Justin just thinks boys are cheaper to raise than girls. I will give him a run for his money!
