It's a boy!!  My sister-in-law came into town last week and we were lucky enough to have some of our family here to find out the sex of the baby.  It didn't take long, and we knew it was a boy!  Ryan and I found out a few minutes before everyone else, so I was able to give them a cute announcement with the baby's name on it... Charles William Abbey "Chaz".  Now, I'm in full force on the nursery... I'll post pictures as I get everything together. 

He is yawning in this picture!

I have grown, I have loved, and I have laughed harder than I ever thought possible.  I have realized that marriage isn't a fairy tale, but a storybook full of eventful chapters.  I know the difference between a par and a birdie.  I have learned to trust, rely, and count on someone on a daily basis.  I have eaten more strawberries than ever. I know not to cook or even try.  I have experienced more joy and happiness than ever before.  I have cheered for the Razorbacks. I have cried and laughed in the same minute over the same moment.  I know difference between a frozen filet and a frozen pork chop.  I have witnessed my soul mate being saved by my Savior.  I own more game systems than I knew were made.  I know who Phil Mickelson is.  I have watched the History channel.  I have smiled more than ever.  My vocabulary has tripled.  I have experienced going through and coming through tough times together.  I now know unconditional love.  I have learned to let go and let God.  I know the TV must be available the first weekend in April.  I know Golf is a real sport.  I have experience the best two years of my life and it's all because of you.  Happy Anniversary, Ryan.  I love you.

It's my Birthday!

And I think I'll celebrate!

This says "ginna ine mamay's toumy."  I think I meant "Ginna in Mama's Tummy."

That's what my belly looks like now... 19 wks pregnant!  :)

Guess I was going sailing...

Rocking out!!  Wish I still had that outfit.

I'm so thankful I was born!  :)

I've always loved to run, in fact- I can proudly say that I've finished my fair share of races anywhere from 3-13 miles. So... I'm always in for a 5k! I talked my good friends Ashley Bryant & Ashley Pollan into signing up with me, and we had a blast! Let's just say running/walking at 18 weeks pregnant is a little different than running while not pregnant! 
I am super sore!!!

My friend, Jessica Cox, owns J.Cox Orthodontics and was a big sponsor for the event. We gladly wore her race day t-shirts...even though it was definitely not maternity! If you need braces in Hernando...
call her, she's great!

Ryan and I had friends get married in Mexico last week... so we HAD to go!  We had so much fun!  I was able to read 3... yes, THREE, books while I was there.  It's amazing what you can do when you are sober by the beach! :)  We went into town (Cabo San Lucas) one day and ate at Gordo Lele's- an amazing taco shop where the food is wonderful and the entertainment is even better!  The owner is pretty much obsessed with the Beatles and after he cooked and served our food- he tossed on a wig, pulled out a fake microphone, and did a little Beatles karaoke for us!  On the way back, our sweet cab driver found a small gas station that sold O'Doul's!!  We bought a six-pack and you would have thought I was in heaven!  The wedding was on Monday and absolutely gorgeous.  There were 16 of us there for the event and they had a pool side reception that couldn't have been better.  Ryan and I are such home-bodies, so we were glad to be home, but couldn't be happier for Jarrett & Janice!
