I am so glad it's finally time for the weekend!!! I am even more thankful that I get off at 3:00 on Friday.....all though I've heard this is the last week for that until next summer!! :( We will see what happens! However, I did learn that I am off on Friday the 13th for Veteran's Day! How exciting! It's funny the things that can excite you when you become a grown up!

I don't feel like we've done much this week but I feel that we have been very busy....don't you just hate that?!?!? I have had a busy week at work and I know Steven and I had stuff going on every evening but I still don't feel like I accomplished much!

Wednesday afternoon I took my OB's advice and headed to my family physician to have a flu test done....YUCK! I was pretty sure I didn't have the flu and she was as well but I've been fighting a cold for about two weeks so she just wanted to make sure. Turns out the flu test was negative!!! He did say if my symptoms don't get better he wants to run another one in a week. I am not happy about it but I will be taking their advice and staying home to rest all weekend! Which means no OU football game....I am NOT happy!! But, I do know I need to listen to them so that is what I will be doing!!

November 3rd is the start of OU Basketball season and I can't wait!! As much as I LOVE college football I also LOVE college basketball!!!! My sweet friend Casey and I even had season tickets and college.....I think we might have been the only students that attended on a regular basis! When Steven and I first started dating we bought season tickets every year. Last year Steven was so busy with work that we decide to not renew our season tickets....I was heartbroken! We still made it to a lot of games but it just wasn't the same! This year my sweet husband surprised me with an early Christmas present...SEASON TICKETS!! I can't wait!

Last night I went to meet the FABULOUS Pioneer Woman!!! Let me tell you she is just as wonderful in person as she is on her blog! So much fun!

We also bought nursery furniture this week! YES I know it is early but we came across a deal we couldn't resist!!!! We knew if we waited we would regret it later! So exciting....once November 10 gets here then we can really start planning the nursery but I am such a planner it is nice to have one thing crossed off the list!

If anyone makes it through this entire rambling post I'll be impressed! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and enjoys the time change!!!

Sweet Chloe

Our dear friends have been in China for the past week anxiously waiting to meet their sweet daughter!!! They've been sending us updates while they've been gone and we knew to expect pictures and video of their Chloe meeting by Monday morning! Well much to my surprise I logged in this evening to see if they had any touristy updates before the big day tomorrow and they had already shared the video of their first meeting!!

I am sure it does not help that I am already an emotional mess and that I hold a very special place in my heart for adoption but I was REALLY a mess after watching their video! I watched it multiple times. I had not shared with Steven that it was posted and he came in the bedroom to find me crying.....I am pretty sure he thinks I've lost my mind!

Hopefully I will have pictures soon to share with everyone. She is absolutely adorable, perfectly healthy, and adjusting very well. I can't wait for them to arrive home so I can meet their new bundle of joy!! They will arrive back to Oklahoma the same day we find out the sex of the baby so we will all have lots of celebrating to do!! They have been waiting 4 long years for this day and I could not be more thrilled. I know they will be wonderful parents.

Chloe actually shares the same birthday as Steven so Christmas Eve this year will be extra special...not only will it be Chloe's first Christmas experience but also her first birthday. I hate to say it but I think Steven's birthday might be overshadowed this year!

Big News!!!

I shared some big news with my boss today so I finally feel like it's ok to share with the blog world....Even though many of you that know me in real life already know my news :) So I guess I'm just throwing this out there for the few followers that I have right now!!

We found at a few months ago that we are expecting!!! The further along I get the more excited I get not that I wasn't ecstatic for such a blessing at first I definitely was but I was definitely surprised that it happened so quickly!!!

My first few months were rough to say the least even though I know it will all be worth it in the end!! The doctor I was going to no longer delivers so I had to find a new doctor so I wasn't able to confirm at the doctors office until I was almost 9 weeks! To say I LOVE my new doctor and her nurse wouldn't even be accurate. I know we have a long ways to go but I love them more after every appointment!!!!

I would like to say that I am feeling better and things are looking up but I would hate to jinx myself :) They do seem to slowly be turning around! I am approximately 14 weeks! On Monday I will start prenatal yoga and one of my friends/acquaintances is actually in the class as well!!! My next appointment is November 10th! I will go in that morning with the doctor at 10:15 and then will have the BIG ultrasound at 1:30 that afternoon! We can't wait to find out what we are having....I always thought I would want to be surprised and I did the first few weeks I was pregnant but since then I have been so ready to know the gender!

So that is my big news and I PROMISE I will be a better blogger and I PROMISE they won't all be pregnancy related!
