Growing Family

Last Thursday, my cousin Michelle gave birth to her first daughter - Riley Rene. She is a beautiful baby and my cousin is going to make for a wonderful mom. I'm so happy for her! This was definitely a long-awaited pregnancy and much-wanted baby. As soon as Michelle was married eight years ago, we all wondered how long would it be before kids entered the picture... After years of trying, years of tears, years of stress and sorrow, it happened. I am so happy for her and for our family.

Welcome, Baby Riley!

A Saturday of Wedding Stuff

Yesterday Blair and I went out to get REGISTERED. This has been something I've always been looking forward to! It was like being a kid in a candy shop - looking at all the stuff and imagining the possibilities! The only problem is that there are two people involved in this process... two people with very different tastes and styles.

I suppose this is the beginning of many disagreements - apples or oranges, cotton or linen, classical or jazz... Wouldn't be easier if we could just have two houses next to each other and we visit each other? Living together has definitely taught us the value of compromise (over and over again!) but it would be nice to have one easy decision that we both mutually agree upon. Eh, I guess we have many years to figure that out.

I'm also working on a couple of wedding websites for family and friends to visit. If you're interested, check out THIS SITE or THIS ONE. They're both a work in constant progress - I'm not too tech savvy so there aren't any bells and whistles but they should give decent information.

We also chose our wedding invitations. Those should go into the mail in early July. For now, please SAVE THE DATES: July 11 and September 5.

There's so much to do and so little time. Every weekend is a precious and valuable opportunity to get things done. I often think about all that there is to do (finalize a florist, finish registering, buy a veil, pick the undergarments, order the bridesmaid dresses, pick out and order flower girl dresses, pick out and order the tuxedos, order shoes, figure out gifts, write cards, decide the music, practice dancing with my dad, plan the rehearsal dinner, practice make-up, practice hair, pick out wedding rings, write vows, plan the honeymoon, talk about ceremony with officiant, AND DON'T FORGET TO BREATHE). One thing at a time, right? YEAHHHH...

113 Days

We're only a few months away from the wedding! I've started to work on a wedding website and plan to share it with close friends and family soon... so stay tuned! In the mean time, SAVE THE DATES - July 11 and September 5.


This week I've been at home with a bad case of vertigo. I've been really dizzy and have not had good balance - holding onto walls for support. The doctor says its positional vertigo. There is a head-excercise that I've been doing with Blair's help and that seems to help (a little). I have also been given a medicine that is supposed to help with nausea. So far, nothing seems to be working all that great. I'm still dizzy and not feeling my best.

Because of the vertigo, we missed Mother's Day and my cousin's graduation. I feel awful about it - I was really looking forward to some quality family time. Make-up celebrations are still up in the air; hope to figure it out soon!

Blair's "news" at work is still pending. We're hoping to know more by Monday...

My cousin and my best-friend are both due with their babies next week! I'm very excited and am looking forward to meeting the new little girls.

Bailey is still WONDERFUL and silly. Here's a recent photo of our pooch...
