100th Post

WOW! It's been a while since I blogged. Thanksgiving, my Birthday and Christmas have come and gone and I am soo sorry I haven't reported about any of it!

With this being my 100th post and haven't blogged in 3 Holidays (yes, my birthday is considered a holiday!) It should be something fantastic! I have thought long and hard about what my 100th post would be about. I wanted it to be something good, something interesting, something exciting for my 100th post. Unfortunately I couldn't think of much except for this...


How we told my parents at Thanksgiving! The Gigi's are my Grandma's.

Michael and I with my parents who have yet to pick out their names.

Aunt Nenna!

Our Nugget at 8 weeks

We can't wait until 12 weeks when we can hear the heart beat!

We were going to tell Michael's family a few weeks after Thanksgiving when we went to Kansas for his cousin's K-State graduation, but we didn't want to rain on her parade and we couldn't wait! So we told them on my birthday when we went over for breakfast that morning. I am so sorry I have no pictures and no video! We just did it spur of the moment!

Our due date is July 27th, yes I know, I'm going to be hot! But it will all be worth it in the end! Michael and I are very excited! We know that are lives are about to change but we couldn't be happier!!

Punkin's and Pumpkins!

Ellarie Paige Hillman is the little Punkin' that arrived Monday!! Momma and baby (and dad) are doing Phabalous!!!!
I can't wait to snuggle with her! When I was visiting Mysha and Ellarie in the hospital she was wide awake the whole time and just cooed and talked to me and occasionally stuck her tongue out at me! She is precious!!

Our schedule's finally worked out to carve pumpkins!!

I'll leave you with pictures, well because everyone knows that's what I'm good at! :)

The Wright's

The Rooks'

The Baldwin's

The Horton's

All the neighbors and their pumpkins

"Act like your pumpkin!"

8 years later and I wouldn't carve pumpkins with anyone but him!

Cowboy Nation (The Rainy Version!)

I found this poem and I think it is very fitting!

"If you're not from OSU you don't know Homecoming.

You don't know the exhaustion of pomping over 80 hours in 2 months and then 14 straight hours the night before walkarounds.

You can't know the relief and excitement and hundreds and thousands of people roam the streets looking at your tissue paper masterpiece.

You can't know the feeling of elation when they call your name at the football game because you've just won 1st place.

You don't know the pride of the Alumni as they watch the parade, take pictures with Pistol Pete and cheer their Cowboys on to victory.

If you're not from OSU, you don't know Homecoming!"

We should take stock in Lowe's

Between Michael and his dad building the shed and my painting projects, we should have stock in Lowe's!!

Michael and his dad are hoping to finish the shed this weekend. They need to put the siding on and shingles on the roof, then its time to clean out the garage!! One thing Michael is so great at is making sure we can fit both cars in the garage, I mean what is a 2 car garage if you can't fit both cars in it?!

My wonderful, wonderful, wonderful friends Kara and Cara came over yesterday to help me paint the guest bedroom! We knocked it out in less than 3 hours!!

Before: I realized that I didn't have a picture of the room this is the best I can do! :/


I saw this pretty cross at Hobby Lobby that I will put in between the windows!

I plan on moving the paintings to above the bed and getting a shelf to go where the paintings are now!

Next Post...America's Greatest Homecoming!!!
