Ready for the day!

23 Days & Counting

Okay, I admit it! My name is Hanna, I'm 32 years old & I'm a Twilight Junkie! I loved the Stephanie Meyer's Twilight books and couldn't put them down!! I went to see Twilight when it came out & though it was very good I was a little disappointed b/c there was so much that had to be cut out of the movie - understandably, too though b/c it would have been a 4 hour movie otherwise. I'm anxious to see if a little more is brought in in New Moon, which comes out November 20th! I watched the latest trailer today and am even more excited to see it now!!

Thankful Thursday

Jamie wrote a Thankful Thursday post a while back and I've seen these around on other blogs, too so I thought I would write up my own as I have so much to be thankful for in my own life! That doesn't mean that everything is perfect, but why concentrate on the things that bring you down with there is so much good to offset it!!

God has truly blessed me with a wonderful family. Michael is a great daddy & stands up for what is right and Emma has been a joy since the day we found out we were pregnant!! She makes us laugh every day - okay, sometimes she makes us wanna pull our hair out, too!!! LOL!

I'm thinking a lot of my parents today b/c during this time of my pregnancy with Emma my mother was in the hospital with cancer. Deep down I think I always knew she would pull through, but that didn't make my fear of losing her any less.

So - today I'm thinking about all the things about my parents I'm thankful for. Our little family, which is growing,  has such great su…

Reading the sale paper from Toys R Us

Am I really only 6 months???

I have to say, I feel like I am into my 7th+ month already. This little boy is sitting so much different than Emma did. He is all out in front & pushing everything in my abdomen way up high, which in turn is already causing me to have bouts of breathlessness. Yes - can you believe that!?!? I can't imagine how months 8 and 9 will be compared to now - I won't be able to breath at all.

He is very active, but mostly in the evening. I felt him much earlier than I felt Emma, but I hear that's usually the case after the first pregnancy - guess I know what to expect & look for this time around. I have to go back to the doc in a few weeks for the wonderful glucose test. They keep saying, "Oh they've improved the drink - it tastes like Hawaiian Punch or Gatorade." Folks - hate to break it to you, but I don't like Hawaiian Punch! The drink just gives me a headache.

Emma is cute with the, my belly! She kisses my tummy & talks to her little brother…

Thanks for being such a great daddy!!

Fun Filled, Beautiful Weather Weekend

It was such a nice week and so awesome b/c we were outside for about 90% of it!! Friday night it was just the fam - we had dinner out and had a nice evening together. Very low key evening. Saturday we were out early b/c we had to take Sable to the vet. Time for her 2nd round of vaccinations. She is about 5 lbs now and the vet says she may reach 9 or 10lbs full grown. She did really well, though she usually doesn't like car rides - they usually end up in her lunch coming back. Ewww!! Next time we make a long trip I think we're going to take the vet up on his offer to give us something for her to take to ease either her stomach or nerves - whatever it is that is making her car sick. We go back in another month and she'll finally be finished and then it's time for once a year trips to the vet.  I do need to get some updated pics of her. She's grown since the last pics I posted. She is just now big enough to jump up onto the couch on her own - just started doing that S…


It's so pretty outside - I wish I was out there! I hope it's like this all weekend b/c we've got outside plans Saturday & Sunday! This week has been a busy week and I was afraid I might be working tomorrow, but it looks like maybe now I won't have to after all! Thankful for that - it's enough to lose my Fridays, don't want to work on a Saturday if I can avoid it at all possible!! I think I'm beginning to get cabin fever - I just want to get out of here and go play with Michael & Emma!

Jacob is one!

Happy Birthday sweet boy!!! It's hard to believe it's been one year already - you're such a sweetheart & we love you so much!
Uncle Michael, Aunt Hanna & Emma

All Dressed Up

This weekend Michael and I had a nice night out - Saturday we had a dinner party to attend for work in River Oaks and we stayed nearby at the St. Regis. It was pretty cool b/c it was right across from the apartments I used to live in before I started dating Michael. I did love living down there then, but am glad I don't have to fight the traffic now. When it's time to get home I just want to be able to go!!

So, Saturday we took Emma to my parents' house to spend the night - I took church clothes, but mother had recently bought her a new dress for her b'day (not until December) and of course, she couldn't wait until December so she put it on her for church Sunday!! LOL!

I love the dress - it is so adorable and perfect for the cooler weather we're having right now! And I wasn't surprised that mother went ahead & gave it to her - she can never wait to give gifts once she buys them!! It was a perfect weekend for her to stay at my parents' too b/c my Grann…

My Two Sweeties

Curled up together on the couch watching TV!

Excited bc Teta & Geddo are coming to visit!

This was her saying "Yay!!!" when I told her my parents were coming over...she doesn't know her inside voice can be used in the car, too!!! LOL

At 21 Weeks

I took this picture this morning before I left the house for work. I think this little man is going to have Emma beat on size!

Cheers from the Alps! Glad you're home!

We made a tent in the livingroom tonight!

Still waiting

At IAH waiting on Geddo & Teta

Going to the "port" today...

Geddo & Teta are flying home today - actually they should already be in the air on the 2nd leg of their trip home! Emma is so excited - she's been looking up in the sky and saying, "Come down here!" since I told her they were coming home on an airplane and says we're going to the "port" to pick them up! We made signs to hold up for them, too. I made one with color and one with just outlines that Emma colored yesterday and drew all over!
They have been having a great time, but they are ready to come home - we're ready to have them home, too! I'm glad it's cooled off now so they aren't coming home to hot yucky weather - well, maybe it's still yucky outside, but at least it isn't hot! It was cold enough last night that Emma wore her jeans and jacket to dinner. I am so over the heat, I really hope this cold spell lasts a lot longer than the last one did.

There is no time...

It's budget season and while this has been a relatively less-stressed year for budget, we are still extremely busy - which is why you haven't seen too much from me! But I'm here - I promise!!
It's hard to believe it's already October! I reached the halfway point in my pregnancy this week, too. Wow! Time really is flying by - now I'm on the down hill side of this race! It's also that time of the year that we've got to get the goblins 0ut. We've got to get Emma's Halloween costume, too. I don't know what she is going to be this year. It's going to be hard to top the cuteness that was last year, though. That clown outfit was too adorable and I got so lucky with it, too b/c I found it from someone at work for only $4! Have you looked at the price tags on Halloween costumes - good ones anyway - they are outrageous! I did find a cute little witch outfit, but couldn't sell Michael on it!

Last week at work I got Boo'd. Don't feel bad i…

Well, it was about that time in the evening...

that Michael dropped wedding cake down my cleavage!!! LOL!!!

Yes, it's a fun memory from our wedding reception - when we cut the cake & my new husband served me a bite, a big piece of it fell right down the front of my wedding dress!! We had the most fun at our wedding & reception! I can't believe it's been five years already!

Happy Anniversary Baby - I love you!!
