Jumping Ahead.

Okay, so it's still super early, but I can't help it. I found Polyvore, and it's just way too much fun! These are the two color schemes I'm thinking. The second one is my first inclination, but I just don't know. At least I have a few months to decide! ;-)

I think I could use either of these for a boy or a girl. This first one, though... as long as that flower fabric stays in small quantities. :-) The red and yellow would also stay in small quantities (especially red), since they are known to cause over-stimulation in infants, resulting in restlessness and prolonged crying. Isn't color science fascinating?! :-D

This second one is pretty much the color palette of our living room and bedroom. I just feel so cozy and serene in these colors!

Which one do you like best?

Last time, it looked like this:

And this time around, it looks like this:

There's a BABY in there!!! With a totally strong heartbeat, and everything looks perfect!


It really is so surreal. I was so happy I was laughing. Not crying. Laughing hysterically. LOL. Jeremy shouted, "WHOA! You can actually SEE its little heart beating!!! That is SOOO cool! It's our BABY!" Tee hee. He was practically jumping up and down, could barely control his excitement in the chair next to me. He's so cute. :-p

One more thing...

My due date? Yeah, it's July 30, 2011. You know what that date is?

Why, it's our 30th birthday! You read that correctly. *Our.* Jeremy and I will both be 30 on July 30, 2011. (Just noticed it's our golden birthday too... tee hee.)


Mmhmm. This baby is meant to be part of our little family. :-)

Merry Christmas to us! And you guys too! ;-)

Loving Austinites. :-)

I was out walking the dogs today and a woman stopped me and said, "You can just leave your dog poop bag on our lawn! I'll pick it up when I get home tonight!" LOL.

People in Texas are WAAAAY too nice... or at least, these people are! ;-) I politely declined... thought I may need it again before I reached home. :-)

Love that these people are my neighbors. :-D

Wishing for Christmas.

I don't have a big wishlist this year. I never really have a big wishlist. But these are things I think would be neat. :-) We don't really have a lot of money this year, due to several misfortunes in a row. *sigh* Ah well. Such is life, yes? We have each other and we're both happy and healthy now! :-D

1. I got this for myself for Christmas. (I needed a new coat, and I had a gift card. :-p ) It came in the mail today, and it's SO cozy (hood is removable!). I'm wearing it right now. LOL. :-p (Oh! And you know what's cool? See those front pockets? Behind them are pockets you can actually slip your hands into! How cool is that??!?!)
2. Mint Eco-Lips is my favorite chap-stick and the only stuff I use (other than this that I keep in my purse at all times). I would LOVE to try this coconut flavor! Yummy!

3. Jeremy and I really would love to take up Scrabble. We just want a "go to" game to have in the house to play together. :-)

4. Okay, I JUST saw this today. LOL. Not only is this the coolest bag ever, but it has my name on it! :-D
5. And I know it sounds crazy, but this boy? He's up for adoption, and I'm in love with his sweet, little face. *sigh* I actually thinks he looks just like our baby would. He SO reminds me of this little boy with Down Syndrome that I used to babysit. I was so in love with that boy too. :-p This is a pretty hefty gift, I know. ;-) But I'd love him in my home. :-)

I found him at this awesome website, where you can put money into each child's grant fund for his/her adoptive parents! I think it's such a great idea! So if you're looking for a great charity this holiday season, this one is awesome! I've also read about two families who adopted from there, and the whole process sounds wonderful! Oh, how I wish I could go get him tomorrow. :-)

What's on your wishlist? Happy Chanukah! Merry Christmas!

Missing Disneyland.

Sorry I haven't updated. I can't really say why I haven't. I guess I just didn't feel like taking photos, and I feel like a post without a photo is incomplete. *sigh* Ah well. I'm hoping to update more frequently.

I made this today, though, and I've watched it like ten times. I'm missing Disney so much lately, and this really is helping me through this tough time. ;-)

It's weird. I think this video only lasts for a few days, so if it disappears... "Thanks, Disney! This is the thanks I get for working all those crazy hours for you? For only getting four days off to get married, two of which were flying there and back... with NO honeymoon?! Pfft. I still love you, though, Disney. This just isn't cool." :-p LOL. So if you see this video and it says, "Dynamic" instead of "Reyanna," it's *not* the one I made! ;-)

p.s. If they had mechanical pet dolls, I would have added Ruby, Amber, and Kissa to the mix. Alas, you'll just have to take my word for it that they want you to have a good holiday season as well! ;-)
