Well....Hello :)

Is anyone still reading this?!  Am I even allowed to post?

Gosh, it's been 9 months since I've wanted to write a blog post, and I have to say the break was nice. 
As much as I love and still read blogs, I just felt like I wasn't really blogging for fun anymore.
It became something on my to-do list.  Not good. 

So I did what I'm sure hundreds of bloggers do - I took a break. 

Not sure if I will be back full time, but I'm entertaining the idea because I've missed some of the ladies I used to be in touch with through this little big blogging world. 

I would like to say that so much has happened since last Summer, but to tell you the truth, we've just been living our lives, and enjoying it.  

Work, family, friends, a trip to Paris, some long weekends, the Holidays, and a New Year. 
Nothing dramatic, yet life has been good to us, so I can't complain. 

Ha I lie though.  
We did get some pretty big/exciting/life changing news about 16 weeks ago! 

our official annoucement

You guessed it - I am 20 weeks pregnant! 

You guessed it - I am 20 pregnant! 
With a little Baby Girl. 

It's been quite the rollercoster of emotions.  
Between the 1st trimester morning sickness, lack of energy, and hormonal craziness, I have somehow managed to regain my energy, and I feel GREAT! 

Baby Girl started moving around about two weeks ago, and I can't wait to feel her actual kicks. 
We've gone through all the genetic testings, and everything looks good!

So here we are. 
Living our last few months "just the two of us", and slowly prepping for her arrival. 
We're halfway there, and yet, it feels like such a long time until she gets here! 
I can't wait though. 
I'm going to be a Mom.  MOM.
