So I've taken a little break from the online world. No reason in particular other than I'm exhausted. At first I thought it was just from late night scrapbooking and working a lot over the last few months. It was to the point of being exhausted even when I would get a full 8 hours of sleep. I thought it was my body saying "Hey! Slow down!". I was wrong. It is saying "Hey! You're pregnant!"
Baby #2 is on it's way and we are very excited!
It's so funny how different it is the second time around. I somewhat know what to expect and it's not as scary. We are much more relaxed and calm about it. So far it's been nothing like when I was pregnant with Drew. I haven't been sick at all, just really, really tired. Hopefully this pregnancy will be much easier than Drew's was! (Which he was totally worth every bit of it anyway so it doesn't really matter!)
I've heard that the HOF book is making it's way around the country! I can't wait to see it! Hopefully it will be in at Scrapbook Generation sometime this week. I was really happy with the 5 layouts that they chose to publish in the book and one of them ("Bowl-a-holic") will have you thinking I'm the biggest dork on the planet! The journaling is completely outragous and goofy.
We (MIke, Drew, and I) spent the weekend in Branson at Scrapbook Generation's retreat. Drew's first time in a hotel wasn't exactly the greatest experience. He hated going in our room! I felt really bad for anyone on the same floor as us! His screaming was so loud! The only time he was really happy was when we would go see Mom and Karin. The second we would open the door to the crop room he would yell "Grandma!!!!". I think all the woman kind of got a good giggle out of that.
I couldn't believe all the hard work that Mom, Karin, and Stacey put into everything. It makes me feel bad for not being more invloved with it other than teaching! I will say the Welcome to Fabulous Scrap Vegas sign was the coolest thing (well, that and Karin's salsa cheese dip. I ate way too much of it!) . I thought that maybe we ordered from somewhere. Nope. Stacey and Jeremy spent a lot of time putting it together. It looked exactly like the real Welcome to Las Vegas sign! I'm sure Mom will post pictures on the store blog.
Despite Drew's dislike for the hotel we did have a nice family weekend. We took Drew to some sort of kids park with rides. He was excited to ride each one but then the second the ride would start going he would cry and say "Done! Done! Done!" It was kind of funny. I mean, I hate saying the laughing at my childs tears is funny but it was just the part about being so eager to ride them and then all of the sudden not wanting to. I'm sure the pictures will be entertaining. The best was seeing Mike ride the tea cups with him. I think that was the only ride that Drew actually smiled.
Well, I hope everyone had a good weekend! I'll try to do a little better at blogging. :)
