She has finally returned...:)

Wow, it's been a while, but I've had fun catching up on all of your blogs over the past week and a half or so! I think I might just have to start rambling to catch you up on all things, so here it goes:

*Chad got to Germany safe and sound. He has a great setup there and has already gotten to go on some really cool missions to neat places like Spain and Africa. Lucky ducky. Though, the communication grid is a bit more challenging in those places and it's been several days since I've talked to him, but I'm hoping for a call sometime tomorrow :). He also got to meet up with some friends that are stationed there and hopes to learn quite a bit about the area from them, just in case we want to move there someday down the road.

*My mom is transforming the room across from mine (in her house) to a nursery for all of the babies on the way in our family. It's going to be great to have a real crib and playroom and setup to look forward to when we (and other family members) come to visit. Since I won't be painting the walls in our current house, she's letting me help out with the design and color scheme and all of those fun things for her room. We have decided to make it unisex so we are using lime greens and all different shades of blue. She found a really cute quilt with a great selection of colors and patterns and we are using it as our main inspiration. It's going to be cute. I will post pictures when it is finally done one day down the road.

*I was gone to Las Vegas this past Thursday through Sunday with my friend Nicole and her sister Kyla and some of their family. It was a short-lived trip at 2.5 days, but we had a great time. We went to see the Cirque de Soleil Ka show at the MGM Grand and the Jubilee show at Bally's for night-time entertainment. The Cirque show was captivating and awesome, but I could absolutely do without seeing the Jubilee show ever again. Lol. Something about men in bejeweled thongs prancing around the stage singing cheesy show-tunes doesn't get me going. Ha. I guess I can definitely say I have been there and done that...and don't care to ever do it again. :)

*The 3 of us ladies actually WON money in Vegas! I got the two of them hooked to my favorite game of Roulette and we had a great time. It's always more fun when you get to walk away from the table a winner and not a loser, though it doesn't happen that way for people (including us) very often. That 2 hours we sat there was fun...and it paid off! :)

*I had a doctor's appointment this past Monday and finally got to hear Baby Sellers' heartbeat on the Doppler. It was strong and healthy sounding, so that's always good! Is it weird for me to say that, even though I have felt crappy and had all kinds of crazy pregnancy symptoms these past 3 months, that this whole baby growing thing is still pretty surreal to me? I guess it might be because until now my tummy has looked and felt like it always has, but things are finally starting to push up and out. It's fun & we are so excited...I guess it's just that Chad & I and our families have talked about it for so long that we can't believe we are really here, making a baby finally. :) Good stuff.

*Supposedly, based on a phone call I got Monday, our condo had another showing. I haven't heard anything back though, so I'm thinking it might have been another no-go. We'll keep our fingers crossed though! :)

*Babe is currently the size of a large orange. Looks like we are headed back to the produce section everybody! :)

*I am still (it's Wednesday & I got home Sunday) trying to recoup the lost hours of sleep that were forfeited in Vegas. I try to sleep in, but my hungry tummy wakes me up. Then I find other things to do. I think tomorrow might call for an afternoon nap of sorts, because dang it, I deserve it. :)

Well, I can't think of much else. Sorry this stuff is only mediocre-ly interesting. :) But, thanks for reading.

Where in Germany is Chad? My future brother-in-law, sil, and new nephew live there! Jason works for the government and they're stationed in Stutgart. They'll be there another year I think before they head back to the states. Bryan and I hope to go visit them sometime before they come home. It's beautiful there! :)

Hearing your baby's heartbeat for the first time is so amazing huh? Really makes things REAL!

How fun that your mom is setting up a nursery in her house- Can't wait to see pictures...Sounds like it's going to be super cute!
