5 Years

I have no idea where the time has gone. Have I really been married for five years already? I am so blessed to have the wonderful husband that I do. :) Now that we have baby #2 (nicknamed "Sprout") on the way, we decided that we better do something special to celebrate this anniversary. Afterall, Grammie was willing to stay with Honeygirl, and we realize that getting away will only get more tricky after we add another kiddo to the mix. So... we jetted off to Hawaii! What a wonderful, relaxing getaway! We stayed right on the water and enjoyed watching the sea turtles play in the surf, while whales played in the distance. So great! It may have only been five days, but it was more than worth it. :) Thanks for choosing to spend your life with me, Babe!

the Announcement

For anyone who has not yet heard the news....

To tell our families the news, Honeygirl got to wear this cute little shirt for the first time. We were hoping to iChat with our out of state family members, but were unable to find a time that seemed to be working out according to our timeline. So, with the tech world that we live in, we texted a photo similar to this one. :) And for our family that lives nearby, we went out to dinner with them. After we were all seated at Red Robin, I took Honeygirl's sweater off and waited. And waited. It actually took a lot longer than I anticipated for the rest of the family to catch on! Aunt K caught it first and quickly leaned over to whisper to Uncle A. Grandma was sitting right across from Honeygirl, but still didn't notice. Finally, Aunt K asked Grandma if she had noticed Honeygirl's shirt. Of course, at the mention of her shirt, Honeygirl promptly pulled it up to show off her belly, making it impossible to read the front! Pretty funny. Eventually Grandma saw what it said, looked at us and said, "Are you trying to tell us something?!" Very fun. :)

As it turns out, the new little kiddo should be arriving just in time for Honeygirl's 2nd birthday.
