What I have to write about has nothing to do with scooters, but I though that it was really funny that it gives some examples of what you can title your post at the bottom. The suggestions it gives you are scooters, vacation, and fall; I thought scooters was definitely the most random so I took them up on it.
I haven't written anything in quite sometime. I'm not as diligent or creative with my blog as Debbie and the Kansans are. That sounds like some old band or something haha. But anywho, we just went to Carlens graduation ceremony last Friday, we meaning mom, dad, deb, nick, and Carlen's family. It was great meshing the two families together again and seeing Carlen recieve his Diploma. It was a truly happy day seeing my husband finish his Bachelors and just having all the family there for him. I will post pictures of the graduation at a later date. I never have the right USB cords with me at work.
I am six months along now! I haven't been sick since the first trimester yay!!! The other joys of pregnancy have caught up with me though. Heartburn, Lower back pain, frequent going to the bathroomness, uncomfortable sleep, short fuse. But oh well, I'm just very very lucky that I don't have 9 months of nausea, kutos to those women who have to go through that. Jade Elizabeth is kicking and squirming everyday now. Today I'm going with Deb and Mom to register for my baby shower which is on May 30th! I'm very excited to finally go look at miniature human things! It will make everything seem more real and not just like it's been feeling; me getting a huge belly with a mind of its own.
I realize that our blog would be a lot more interesting with pictures so I promise I will put some up. That won't happen for a few more days, but they will be here I assure you.

Oh one last thing, who else is excited for X-Men Origins coming out this Friday!?! I know I am!!!

Well Carlen graduated a few weeks ago Yay!!! He is now looking for a full time job and that is going to be wonderful! We have been living off of my income for quite a few months now and it's pretty difficult.
I am now 3 months pregnant and getting out of the quesy zone hopefully. We got to listen to the babies heart beat at my last appointment and it was so loud. He or she kept kicking too! I didn't know they could kick when they were the size of a bean! Well I'm excited to find out if it's a boy or a girl in a couple months and of course I will let all of you know. We think it's going to be a girl but you never know.
I've gotten a lot farther on my book and hope to have it finished in a year. Realistically probably in 2 years. My dream is to get it published, just because i'm going to be a stay at home mom doesn't mean I can't do anything else or follow other dreams that I have. I've always wanted to be an actress in movies; that is my biggest dream. I know it's really far out there but maybe someday I will get to be in some small local films at least. If I didn't have this book that I was writing I don't know what I would hold onto or look forward to. Besides my baby of course but I mean, I want to use my creativity and do things with my life.
Some really good movies we have seen lately: Doubt and Valkyrie. Both great movies that I would recommend. Oh and I never said I liked happy movies just a heads up for those who only like the traditional happy endings. Just look at my favorite movies list, i'm pretty sure I cried in all my favorite movies. Except Sword and the Stone and The Man who knew too little of course haha. I didn't cry in the above mentioned movies however; they are just thought provoking and inspirational and especially Doubt was very well acted and just incredible. I'm going to stop now because once I start talking about movies I won't stop. Except right now, I'm stopping.
