Michael & Hanna Get Hitched

Well, three years ago we did anyway! While we were engaged I created a site to chronicle our wedding story. I loved that site! I loved how it looked and functioned so much. I was using pMachine (which has a new name now) at that time and well, to make a long story short, I don't have that wedding site anymore. When I moved over to DNN from pMachine, though the site didn't look the same...and now that I am at WP, well that site is just no more. :(

Oh well, can't hang onto the past!! Maybe one day I'll take have the time to recreate the original site I loved so much. I don't even have a screen shot of it...

So, I have decided to simply use one of the WP templates to at least put our story back up online! So, if you're at all interested you can browse Michael & Hanna Get Hitched and read about how we met, how Michael proposed, and various aspects of our wedding planning and about the actual day and a couple extras!!

Getting Ready to Crawl

She isn't there yet...she isnt' even sitting up really on her own yet, but she will get up on all fours and rock a little...or if she is on her tummy she'll scoot for something, but always ends up going backwards!!!! I do love this expression, though!!!

Saucy commercial?? Or is it just me???

Migraines...they're back

While I was pregnant I was so afraid of having migraines all the time - my cousin's wife suffered from migraines like I do and while she was pregnant she had one all the time. Luckily, while I was pregnant I really only remember having one. Now, though I think they are back. I've had 4 or 5 in as many weeks. That's too many.

Thursday we went offsite for a demonstration work. I had a headache when we left and then rode for a while in the back of a Crown Vic - ugh, car sick. By the time I got there I was so miserable. Luckily the room the demo was in was very cold -that helped a lot with the nausea. After that we went to eat and I ended up just sipping on a coke the whole time and took my food with me. One of the girls with me also suffers from migraines and said she had some Imitrex.  I used to take it years ago for my migraines, but it's been so long I was worried about taking it, but eventually I couldn't take it anymore so I took 50mg. It didn't make it go away (nothing does), but I must say it made it possible to continue my day and I didn't have to go home. I am thinking about seeing if my doctor will prescribe it for me.

Yesterday I felt better when I woke up, but before noon I felt another headache coming on - I took some BC Powders, but like I said nothing else really was a dull ache all day and then last night we left for dinner and it was getting pretty bad. Again, I couldn't finish my dinner and ended up packing it to go. We came home and put Emma to bed and I immediately crashed. I woke up this morning feeling better, but still have a dull ache in my head. I am about to make myself a big cup of coffee, though and cook some b'fast and just take it easy this morning. Hopefully it won't get too bad again.

New Mommy Tips: Diaper Champ

Have ya ever taken out a trash bag full of dirty diapers? Um, yucky!!!! I didn't realize how much I loved our diaper champ until this past week. Since Emma is eating food now her diapers are very, well let's just say, can you pass the clothes pin please!?!? :D I put all her diapers in the diaper champ and it's right by the garage door so I walk by it every time I go in and out of the house to garage. I never smell a thing and not because her diapers smell so sweet!

The diaper champ is not only good because it keeps the smell of dirty diapers contained, but also because, unlike the diaper genie, it doesn't have to have its own special bags. I use the same kitchen trash bags I use in the garbage can in our house. It's also easy to use. The bags don't have to be loaded in any special way - you just load it the same way you load a regular garbage bag and it very easy to open and clothes to change out the bags.

I've talked to several other friends that use the diaper champ and they agree it's great!  It comes in blue and in pink, too! We have the pink one! ;)

There is a new hottie on Grey's Anatomy tonight!!

Another semester down...

Grades are posted! I got an A!!!

Five more classes to go! Two core classes and three electives. I am taking Stats (core) this summer and then in the fall I'll take a management class (core) and an elective. Then next spring will be my graduating semester where I'll have my last two electives to take.

I feel like I've been working on my MBA forever, but it's actually taking me three years to finish, which really isn't bad since I'm working full time!! Of course, if I had done it right along with my bachelors it would have only taken me one year - hind site and all that right? I'll definitely share with Emma how much harder it was to go back while working full time and having a family - maybe she'll make the smart choice and do it all at one time!! Ha ha! Isn't that what all parents do, though? Try to teach their children from their own mistakes - and we didn't listen. So, I guess I shouldn't be surprised if Emma doesn't listen to me either! What's that called - paying for your raising!!

Yum, tastes good!

Michael snapped this picture last night while Emma was having dinner!!! She is five months old today!!! I can't believe how fast it is going by!

I also like the little spin that Blake put on You Give Love a Bad Name!! Michael had to listen to me all night, too b/c I had all those songs in my head after the show and just kept singing!! Ha ha!!
