Happy Halloween

Monday night we went to a Halloween party and Eric got this great costume from the Groves.

Last night when I got home from work our power was out and had been since about 3. One of Eric's friends is the manager for the new restaurant at Prime Time and had invited us out for friends and family night to try it out. So we just went out there early and played a round of miniature golf and looked around. It was really nice and the food at the restaurant was good. It is just like Buns Over Texas was, just with more menu options.

This and That

Last weekend was Homecoming at ACU and our busiest week of the year at work. This year I was in charge of pre-game and had to help with everything else! It was very busy and I worked about 25 hours of overtime.A lot of my friends from college were here for the weekend, but I didn't get to see them very much. It was good to at least get to say hi though. I miss everyone living here and all of the fun group stuff we used to do!

I am 22 weeks today! I can't believe how fast it has gone by so far. My friends have planned my shower and now I need to register. A friend of mine from church that has twins is going to help me out because I don't know how much I need of what or what brands are good, etc. The house is no where near ready for them, but I am so excited that the babies will be here in a little over 3 months. I can't wait to see what they will look like. Eric and I looked very different as babies. He has blond curly hair as a kid and I was born with a ton of dark straight hair. Here are some pictures of us:

Here I am at 22 weeks:

The Long Weekend

We had a busy, productive, crazy, long weekend. Friday my parents and I drove to Dallas to pick up the cribs and changing table. We went shopping and then went to pick it all up. But it didn't all fit in the car very well. My mom ended up riding in the back laying on top of a box.

But we got it all back to Abilene and found some really cute baby clothes!

While we were gone Eric started working on the babies room and there was an accident! As a result, we are going to be getting new carpet! Which will be nice, because we needed new carpet anyways. Now the paint incident and the nail polish incident can be fixed.

On Sunday we cleaned out out garage to make room for all of our stuff that is in the babies room right now. My parents, Eric's parents and my grandpa all came over to help. The difference is huge and we have a lot more room out there now.

We still have a ton of work to do on the house. We are planning on filling in the atriums and making them offices. And we need to get new carpet and a new roof. With the babies room we still need to finish painting, build the cribs, have an electrician come out and install and fix the light fixtures and put everything away. There is a lot to be done!! But not this week because it is homecoming. So if you don't see me or talk to me, it is because I am working like crazy. But it will all be over on Saturday! Hope everyone has a great week!

20 weeks

I had another appointment with Dr. Mayberry yesterday. Everything looked great! Both babies weigh 14 ounces now, so they are doing really well. He said that next time I go in (in 4 weeks) they will be a pound and a half each.

Here is a picture of me at 20 weeks.

Baby Bedding

Last weekend when we were in Dallas we bought our baby bedding from Pottery Barn Kids! It is so cute and I love it! The top one is the girls bedding and the bottom is the boys bedding. Next weekend we are going to Dallas to pick up the cribs and the changing table.

Eastern Caribbean Cruise

We just got back from a week long cruise to St.Thomas, St.Maarten, and the Bahamas. It was beautiful and very relaxing. I read 4 books and I slept a ton (probably more than anything else)! On the first day at sea I accidentally fell asleep on my lounger on top in the sun for 2 1/2 hours and had some very interesting burns. You can see them in any pictures of me. I don't know what I did, but my forehead and the tip of my nose was burned. And then my tankini must have blown up and the bottom of my stomach wass burned too. Te worst part was that I couldn't lay out anymore after that! It was a great week though and a nice break away from work. This week is going to be crazy though. I have 1 session Thursday, 1 Friday, 2 Saturday and 1 Sunday. I guess that is what happens when you are gone for a week!
