New blog

Well, Im not sure what really happened but my blog no longer works. I feel like we have tried everything to fix it, with no success of course. After being super annoyed for a couple days I figured a new blog was my best bet. So here we go.

Birthday Time!!!!

Happy birthday Brad!!!!!
Brad turned 23 on Monday. I had to work the night before so I couldnt do everything I wanted but, it still turned out to be a great day. I bought Brad a sound system, a game, Which he was so excited for. Brad also wanted a pool... WHOOWOOO, now thats something I can get excited about. I got off work at 730am, I ran by McDonalds on the way home (Which is one of Brad's FAVORITE breakfast places). We ate breakfast together and I gave Brad his gifts. Their was no way for me to wrap the pool since it was impossible for me to even lift... it weighed 180lbs, I gave Brad the pool treatments to keep it sanitized. He looked at for a min, and than had to read the label before he understood that he got a pool. Brad spent the morning setting up the pool while I slept :( I woke up at 1pm, we had a BBQ, watched a movie, and ate some cookie bars. It took the pool 10hrs to fill up. Meanwhile Brad was giving Diesel swim lessons. It was a wonderful day and I cant wait for next year.

Fresh paint

Our little pup is really starting to grow up... Little does he know he is almost old enough have get fixed... :(

But for now he is the king of this back yard and loves every minute of it, although we let him in a lot and he is really starting to understand the no carpet rule. He rings a bell when he needs to go outside, and just loves all the attention he get

Our bedroom, office/ my treadmill and than our guest room but soon to be baby room. All of these rooms are pretty plain for now. We are not really sure what color schemes we want just yet

This is the guest bathroom... Which I love. We have painted our guest bathroom and also the living room and kitchen. Its been so much fun to have OUR OWN walls to paint. We have a long way to go but we are loving every minute of it.

Boy or Girl?

Brad and I are prego! I grabbed a pregnancy test on my way home from the hospital, I thought their was like a 20% chance I was pregnant but I was pretty sure that for some odd reason I was late, NOT pregnant. All three of the test I took were positive, I wasn't sure whether to cry or scream out of excitement. Instead I decided that all THREE test were wrong that I wasnt pregnant. I wanted to tell Brad, but he was at work and I didnt want to do it over the phone or in a text. Later, Brad called and asked me to meet him and some of our friends at Jamba Juice! As Brad and I were sitting by ourselves for a second he asked if I had started my period, I said, "No". He looked at me for a second and said, "Are you pregnant"?..... I said, "Yes" and started to cry. Brad was so giddy he couldnt stop smiling, he said, " Im more excited than I ever thought I would be". I was still in shock and scared of being pregnant with all the changes that are happening in our lives right now. Brad wanted to tell the whole world, but I made him promise not to say a word. I was still not convinced I was pregnant so on the way home we picked up two more test. They were also positive. Our plan was not tell tell anyone until about 12 weeks in case I were to have a miscarriage. I went to work the following day and I was looking over some information on a patient I was getting and noticed that the patient had a history of shingles. I asked Tiffany, (who had some intuition going on) if shingles was like MRSA, that if you have ever had it than you would ALWAYS be on contact precautions. Tiff said, " No, you just can't take care of them if youre pregnant. You're not pregnant are you"? Lol all I could do was say, "Yes". Tiffany quickly made arrangements for me and Traci (who was at the opposite end of the table) to switch patients, but she also had to ask Traci if she is pregnant. It was pretty simple for everyone in the room to realize that Traci and I were switching because I was pregnant. I just smiled and said, "SURPRISE". It turned out to be a good thing, I was able to ask two other pregnant girls on my unit questions about their pregnancies. The only reason that I didnt want a baby right now is because I will be living in TX for a month by myself and if I were to get sick I wouldnt have Brad with me. Now, Im so exited I can hardly stand it. I keep thinking about how I wanna do the baby room, and if it will be a boy or a girl, what we will name it, what he/she will look like. It seems unreal to me, I think once I start to show, or feel the baby kick it will feel more real. For now, I will just dream about this amazing little baby that is about to enter our lives! We feel so blessed!

Soon to be home owners

Brad and I flew into Texas for spring break. We wanted to check out Baylor Univ., look at the hospitals in the area and do some house hunting. Our trip was quick but we accomplished so much. We both loved Baylor Univ, we had the opportunity to sit in on a class. We were both impressed with professor Bates, (I think that was his name). The following day I had a job interview and I got the job! After the job interview we met with Cathy our real estate agent who we had been communicating with for the last few month. We spent the WHOLE day looking at houses. It seemed like FOREVER. Towards the end I was starting to confuse some of houses features with other houses. The following day I had another interview with Hillcrest hospital.... I GOT THE JOB! We finished looking at some more houses and we found a house we wanted to call HOME! It was beautiful with 3 rooms, 2 full bathrooms. We found out the house already had 2 offers on it, I was SO nervous. We put in a strong offer and played the waiting game. Just before before getting on our flight home we got a phone call from Cathy saying, "CONGRATULATIONS". We have signed papers and hoping to close April 30th. I start my job in 2 weeks, which is good and bad. Brad and I will have to live apart for a month. WHICH KILLS ME. Brad will come on the weekends to visit and hopefully it will go by fast. I have to be there early so I can have a pay stub for 15days to prove we have the money to buy a house. As much as I am excited for the challenge of a new job, Im also extremely sad to be leaving my current job. I work with some of the best people. Everyone is so helpful and fun to work with, we are always laughing and just getting through each day together. I would recommend working at Logan Regional to anyone!

Brad and I celebrated our first year anniversary in Vegas. We had a blast! We stayed at the Trump, ate lots of yummy food, became CSI investigators, went to some shows, lots of shopping, some games, saw a fashion show and went the wax museum. This was the perfect little anniversary weekend. I was really looking forward to some warm weather in Vegas...... but instead it rained the whole time. We cant wait to go back again!
