Going...going.....on the market!

Our house it up!! Whoo hoo!!! The last two months of back breaking labor to get this sucker up is over and ready or not here it goes! We did a ton of work on the house and it looks amazing. Jason and I joke that our house hasen't been this clean since we moved in 10 years ago!! We have found two houses that we really like and now the waiting game. We wait for ours to sell so we can make an offer on the one we want and hope that it doesn't sell in the mean time. I am most likely one of the most impatient people you will ever meet so this whole hurry up and wait thing is killing me. I know it is all in God's timing and when it's time it will go.... now I just need to remind myself of that everyday!!! Selling our home is bitter sweet for me. I know once we've sold it we

will be moving up to a bigger and better house but I have lived here for 10 years. Both my kids were brought home from the hospital to this home. A lot of blood, sweat and tears have been shed here and I am going to be sad to see it go. BUT I know the future holds new beginnings and I am excited about that!

Welcome Breanna Cathleen!!

Well this last week was quite a doozy! My best friend Tammi was expecting a baby on May 16th but due to high blood preassure they decided on Tuesday morning they would beging the process of inducing labor Tuesday night. Now I should back up a bit and say that I had been invited by Tammi to be present during her babies birth! I can't even tell you how excited I was that not only would her and her husband share this amazing moment with me but that I would get to be on the other end of child birth! I had been through it but never witnessed it! Anyway, so Tuesday night turned into Wednesday morning when they brought out the big guns and started pitocin... yeah didn't work. So they stopped it at 5pm and said we'd try again tomorrow. Thursday morning came around pitocin again this time we were getting somewhere!! Broke her water and man alive was she off and running!! She was such a trooper and labored for about 3 hours before asking for the epidural. Finally about 5:30pm the doctor decided after 3 days and not as much progress as he would like it was time for a c-section. Baby was ready and it was time. Breanna Cathleen was born at 6:06pm on April 30th. She weighed in at a whopping 6lbs even!! She is the most adorable little peanut and I can't wait to watch her grow!! Thanks Chris and Tammi for letting me be there for you. Despite the circumstances it was really quite fun and the end result was SO worth it!!!
