I'm Engaged!!! <3

Merry Christmas to me! Andy asked me to marry him on Christmas evening! Can you believe it? It's only been seven and half years since we started dating. WOW! lol I'm still in shock, and so afraid to plan anything, because it just seems unreal. :-)

We had plans to travel to Roanoke to visit with his family (like we usually do on Christmas morning). Unfortunately, the weather put a damper on the plans, since it was calling for freezing rain, and we didn't want to chance it. So we stayed in Nelson and had dinner with my brother, sister-in-law, and their children. It was a very nice day, although very dreary because of the rain. Then Andy and I retired to my house for the evening where we went to my room with plans to watch a movie. Since the weather was getting worse, we decided to just hang out for a little bit and enjoy each other, and peace and quiet (hanging out with three rowdy boys all day takes it's toll! ha ha). So we were laying across my bed and Andy said, "I'm sorry that Christmas has been so dismal." I told him that it was just fine, as long as we were together. He then asked if I wanted to be together forever, and I said, of course I did. He then said, "Will you marry me then?" I was so shocked that I said, "Whatever!" It took me a few minutes to realize that he actually meant it!!! So, of course, I said YES!!!

I love this man, more than any other. And I look forward to spending the rest of my life with him and our unborn little one. This Christmas was absolutely the best Christmas!

We have discussed dates, but we haven't set anything in stone. I originally wanted an autumn wedding, but with the timing and all, it probably isn't going to be ideal. So maybe, winter? Who knows. Excitement!!!

Snowed In!

I love snow!!! We haven't had a big snow like this in year's. The last time we measured, it was 24 inches, and still snowing. The snowing quit and has now started again. While I am stranded, I am safe, warm and happy. I love big snows like this. I'm just glad that I don't have to work. I feel badly for the people that have to be at work, and the rescue workers that have to go out in this stuff. I hope everyone is safe. =-)

We went to the doctor on Thursday. We got to hear the heartbeat again, which is still strong at about 150. My quad test came back normal, so no concerns there. We will hopefully find out what we are having January 14th, if the baby cooperates. I sure hope so!! I'm so anxious to make sure that the baby is healthy and see who is in there.

Where Have I Been?

I haven't blogged in quite a while...mainly because I don't think anyone reads it. ha ha I've fallen behind on my picture of the week. But that's mainly because, I'm pregnant! I haven't had the energy to be out shooting pictures as much as I would like to. So, you can see the pictures on Facebook if you look up my name. I don't think I'll post them as much here anymore.

So, yes, I'm pregnant! 18 weeks actually. I cannot believe it! I'm so excited, yet so very scared. This will be my first child, and while I love babies and love being around them, I still have no idea what to do with my own! =-) BUT, I'm all for the ride!

I plan to try to blog a little more. Mostly because a friend of mine just started, and mainly because it would be nice for me to do. Blogging about the new little one is a great idea. And maybe it will be something to share with him or her later.
