Thank you for taking a moment to stop by and share in my journey. This journey started in February of 2009 and I am hoping to stay strong. Every time you leave a comment it truly encourages me to stay healthy. Thank you to everyone who has ever left a comment and to everyone who will leave a comment in the future. You would be surprised how easily you can encourage someone with just a few words. If you would like to see a little bit of where I was, please check out my first post on Day 1. I have been encouraged by so many other healthy bloggers out there as well. This journey will last me a life time because it truly has to be a lifestyle commitment. I also hope that you can be encouraged by my small triumphs. Thank you all for your support!

Kreativ Blogger

Just today I was ready my beautiful friend, Bobbi's, blog over at N Her Shoes. She was given the Kreativ Blogger Award and then Bobbi so graciously awarded it to me. So, with that award comes the responsibility of sharing 7 things about myself that almost nobody else knows about. And then I award this to someone else who will share 7 things about themselves. I am honored that Bobbi would think of me but I certainly don't think that I am a creative blogger by any means, but I kind of think she was graciously trying to give me more exposure as I try to re-enter the wonderful blog world. So, here we go....

7 Things That Nobody Knows About Me:

1. If I could, I would adopt many, many children.

2. Babies seriously scare me. I hate not knowing what they need when they cry.

3. I often wish that I could be an actress on a family-friendly television show.

4. I prefer not to have cheese on anything but LOVE it on pizza! (But will still eat food with cheese when I am guest in someone's home).

5. I was in choir in high school but I really can't sing.

6. I want to learn how to ballroom dance.

7. I don't want to work at my job anymore. People are really nice but job is not rewarding or fulfilling in any way.

Now, 3 Bloggers to give the award to:

1. Kamran at The Sophisticated Gourmet

2. Lacey at Common Objects and Everyday Events

3. ALL OF YOU!! (Totally taking Bobbi's idea cause you are ALL creative and I would love to see all of your answers)

So, that was the Kreativ Blogger Award. Again, I will say that I am honored that Bobbi would choose me. I gotta get back in the habit of writing. At least this time it only took me a little over a week (thanks Bobbi!!). We still haven't hooked up my computer but that will change things a lot when that happens. But if I don't write this weekend, I will definitely be posting next week for sure. We have two big events coming up next week:

1. October 27th - I will have my sonogram where I find out if we are having a boy or a girl. I can't wait to find out!!

2. October 28th - This is our next court date in the adoption process with our son, Tyler. This court date should terminate the birth families parental rights for good. Once that happens, the birth parents have the right to appeal, which they probably will. We have to wait 60 days just to see if they appeal. So, we are ready for the next phase but after that it is just a waiting game for us. So, if you remember, please do keep us in your prayers.

Anyone have any big plans for this weekend??

Have a Great Night Everyone!!

I am writing another post. It took me about another month and a half but I am here at last. It has been really hard for me to blog because since we moved, we haven't set up my computer so I have had to use my husband's computer. I haven't realized how inconvenient that is - especially when he is home. But this week we are setting up my computer so hopefully I will be able to get more posts in on a regular basis - instead of once every one to two months. So, let me see if I can catch you up on what's been going on. Really, right now, there are two big things that I want to share with you all.

First, I will start with MY NEW (USED ) CAR!!! Just about a month ago, we finally got a car to replace our van that was out of commission. I love my new car. It is a 2000 Toyota Camry. I haven't taken any pictures of it yet but I will try to post some tomorrow (for real this time). I don't know if any of you read my other blog, The Three T's but a little over a year ago I posted a picture of my old Camry completely crushed under a tree branch that fell on top of it. If you would like to see it, feel free to check it out. The post with this picture is kind of a long post because I recapped my whole month of August of last year. That was a busy month for us. But feel free to check it all as it gives a little glimpse of me and my family.

So, now on to the BIG NEWS.... As of this coming Thursday, I will be EIGHTEEN WEEKS PREGNANT!! For the last couple of posts, I was constantly posting about how tired I was all the time... Well, this is why! :-) My due date has changed from March 27th to March 18th to March 22nd. So, I'm guessing some time in March :-). I got some sonograms at a Free Clinic in San Bernardino that I am happy to post. I apologize if they are hard to see. Sometimes sonogram pics are hard to see the baby anyways but these pictures were in and out of my pocket for a couple of days before I scanned them. These pictures were taken at about 13 weeks.

I like this one the best because looks like he/she is sitting ready for the world. :-)

In this one the baby appears to be laying down. I think it's harder to see the baby in this picture.

Well, finally after a month and a half I have finally told you all the big news that I wanted to tell you (if there is anyone left still reading).

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and feeling blessed!!
