What's Almost Worse Than Bad News?

Not getting any news. We have to wait ONE more week to go to the doctor after some unforeseen events, and it's killing us to wait one more week to see her and ease our minds. Although, all of your sweet comments on Mondays post are definitely helping ;) All the extra love, positivity, and prayers definitely can't hurt.

On a positive note, we did manage to find a mommy mobile for me this past weekend. We knew a two door GTO and an old pickup truck with zero safety features weren't going to cut it, so Will gave up his beloved GTO for me to have a safe four door. Yes, he gets MAJOR brownie points for that, and around these parts brownie points are everything. Thanks babe!

I never thought I'd 'want' a Volvo, but I've kind of been crushing on them for the past year or so. Reliable, good on gas, sporty, and those safety features really can't be beat:


The funny part was that unbeknownst to us, we bought it from a famous author and entrepreneur. Their humongo house was the first tip off, but then it was hard to miss the pictures of himself on the wall along with awards and whatnot. Bill and his wife were super nice, they shared a lot about their businesses and family, and it all made for an exciting afternoon. I tried to take more pictures, but I wasn't trying to come off all fangirl. Let's just say, their house was magazine worthy, and I should have just asked for a tour.


The PILE of fried seafood we had after was quite exciting too, but the picture of that is on Will's phone. Let me tell you, that pile fed us BOTH for two days. I definitely retained some extra water weight after all that, but hey, it was worth it. I promise I'm not 'eating for two', but we have been eating out a bit too much lately with all the 'celebrations'. Now we've got to reign it in, because I've gotta keep nourishing this baby. Well...Valentine's and Mardi Gras will probably hinder that a bit, but I'm still going to try after the King Cake!

Any of you have good plans for Valentine's Day? We don't have anything set in stone, but I just want to snuggle and relax with Will. Although, I guess I have two Valentine's this year, which does make it extra special. I even have a Valentine's Day surprise involving her that hopefully I can show y'all Friday. Can't wait!

Yay for mom mobiles. We traded in my Toyota Corolla for my ford edge when I got pregnant. Best decision ever. and it's weird.. but the picture on that guys website.. he's pretty good looking. That's weird, I know.

He does get major points!

As for Valentines Day, I have to spend the morning and part of the afternoon at the pool because the college/highschool kids won't work for some reason. Then we're taking my brother's dog for some grooming and maybe we'll get pizza for dinner.

We're not really the romantic sorts and our together anniversary is next week anyway. (5 years on the 19th)

A mommy mobile - I love it. It is, however, horrible that you guys have to wait another week to see what going on with your lil one. Ugh. :\

I've been lusting over a Volvo for years, so I'm dying of car envy! I love it and it's the perfect addition, just in time for baby girl :) I'm happy to hear baby girl is healthy. All 3 of you have been in my prayers! XO
