Drum roll please!!!

So, bad news? I still feel pretty icky and sick........The good news? I'm supposed to feel like that! I'm gonna have a baby!!!! We did a home test last night, and it came out positive!! We are so excited!!! What a great 5 year anniversary gift, right? I can't stop smiling I am so happy!!!

And So the answer to the famous question? "When are you due?" I'm guessing some time in Feb or March of next year, although since we haven't been to see the doctor yet, I'm not too sure. So...This lamb blankey I'm making? Shoot, I may just have to keep it for my baby!!!! =) Thank you all for such lovely comments and happy anniversary wishes, and wishing me to feel better! While I'm not exactly "feeling better" I at least have a reason (a good one!) as to why I feel this way, so it's alright!

Wow! I don't think I've done any stitching in a week! Oh boy, I need to get going on that...I'm just so tired and feeling like theres a bowling ball in my stomach that I've not been up to it! Maybe this weekend? We'll see!

Hmmm...wonder if my baby will pop out with a "Made in Japan" stamped on it's butt? LOL

Praying to the Porcelain god...ugh....

So, you know the sickness I referred to in my last post? Yeah, it morphed into something totally different!!! I have been so nauseaous and just blech-y feeling all this week!! In bed most the time, or watching TV on the couch. I don't want to read, or stitch, or move really...

And I am so mad! I don't know if any of you have experienced this before, but it seems that there is a mind correlation between the last thing you consumed and getting sick! And it sorta puts you off whatever it was you last consumed for a while. Well, for me, it was coffee!!! NOOOOOO!!!! I love coffee!! And just the thought of it now just makes me cringe! =( This has just not been a happy week AT all.

The weekend has been a little better. I felt good enough to celebrate my 5 year wedding anniversary with my honey!! He spoiled me! We went on a tour of a pineapple winery and a beer brewery, and a glass blowing factory on Sunday, on saturday he took me out to eat, and to see Eclipse, and Tonight (our actual anniversary) he took me to a really nice restaurant on the water, it was beautiful!

So, that is what is up with me, I will try to catch up with everyone this week! If I continue to feel better, and try to post photos. I did get my monthly smalls finished before my sickness kicked my behind to bed, so I have those to share. Anyway, thank you all for reading! I will post photos soon! Here is one of my honey, I took it tonight while we were at dinner. I love this photo, I think he looks so handsome! Sorry girls! He's taken!
I love you Hubby! Happy Anniversary! It's been a crazy 5 years! Here's to many, many more!

Progress on Petal

I realized that I had forgotten to post a progress photo of Petal before I put her away for the month. So, here it is:
For the most part everything but the white and backstitching is in. When I return to work on this next month, I will have alot of white to work on....oh , joy....
Man, so far, this first part of this month has been crazy! I usually try to have my motnhly smalls done by now, and I just finished my two letters today, and have astart on my checkered block, which I will share in my next post.
I normally have a lot of stitching time, as when the hubs is at work, I have long stretches of days to do housework and stitching and reading...not always in that order! lol, however the first part of this month has been a little different.
First we had a 4 day weekend, to commemorate independance day, and so I spent much of those 4 days hanging out with the hubs, and with friends, BBQing and basically doing your normal holiday- type things. So, the hubs was off Mon and Tues of last week, then on Weds. was his finals day for the 6 week class he's had to take for his work, so he had 2 tests, and got home early, then we had to run and get me a new dress, for the graduation banquet for the following night. Thursday, we had his graduation ceremony in the morning, lunch with fellow graduates in the afternoon, then a few hours to relax and get ready for the graduation/awards ceremony banquet that night. Then Fri, the hubs was off work again, as it was his b-day so we spent much of the day hanging out and doing birthday type things. Phew....I have to say not a whole lot of reading or stitching time in there for me, but it was a nice week overall. Except for the slight feeling that I am catching a bug of some sort! I have taken long 2-3 hour naps almost every day in the afternoons, and have been going to bed pretty early. And this morning I woke up with a scratchy throat, and a dry cough! UGH! I don't want to be sick! I have not gotten sick at all since we got to this island a year ago. Oh well.
But next week, things should start returning to normal, as the hubs returns to a normal work schedule, so I'm hoping to play catch up on both stitching and reading. In my next post I will share photos of the letters N and O, and possibly my progress on my July checkered square.
Not much work has commenced on Snow Valley Express, because as I started to put a;little bit of time on it, I quickly realized why I threw it to the way side in the first place! It is a PAIN IN THE WAZOO!!!! The pattern is hard to follow and there are alot of color changes....and complicated backstitching! ugh! This project will be a sure labor of love if I get it done!!! So grab your pom poms and cheer me on, cause I am gonna need it with this one!!!
