I had to start back to work last week. I will have to say that it was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. I spent the week leading up to it crying my eyes out every day. My heart hurt so bad every time I thought about it. These were some of the thoughts going through my mind:

Dave and I (and our friends Patrick and Kristen:)dedicated most of our Saturday to finishing up our baby registry. We went to Babies R Us a couple of weeks ago but were unable to finish registering for ALL the necessary items (which is A LOT) so we finished that up and also registered at The Baby's Room.
I have become addicted to The Baby's Room. I have been going in there a couple of times a week to try and narrow down the baby bedding. I really thought I had it picked out but when we went Saturday I felt like I was so confused . I just couldn't decide. I really don't like all the themed bedding that they have for boys (no offense to anyone who does). It just seems like every item they sell for boys has some sort of dinosaur or animal plastered across it. I was actually trying to make a somewhat neutral (but really too girly) bedding work but Dave was not having it. Finally, the girl working there showed me a bedding set that was made by the same designer as the two other sets that I was in love with (but again too girly). It was perfect but totally different from what I thought I wanted. Click on the links to see pictures of the bedding we picked out:
I am so happy to have finally made a decision!! We also picked out the crib, the dresser/changing table and the rocker and ottoman. I feel like we have made progress. Even though we will not begin putting the room together until about a month out because we are still holding out on getting our house sold. I will be so frustrated if the house sells once we get the room finished.
I am 27 weeks now and cannot believe how fast this pregnancy has gone. I had Madison at 38 weeks so it is really crazy to think that I could realistically have this baby in a little over 10 weeks. That makes me so excited but then so anxious also when I think about all that there is left to do!!
Here a some pics of the crib and dresser and my ever growing belly:

For New Year's this year, Dave and I and 8 of our friends went to my parent's cabin in North GA. We rode 4 wheelers, played on the rope swing, went for a couple of hikes, played games, cooked yummy food, sat by the fire, and generally just had a good time. It was FREEZING cold!! It got down to 14 degrees. When we woke up on Saturday morning it was snowing outside!! It was pretty exciting since it may be the only snow we see in GA this year!! Here are a some pics from our few days in the mountains...

Dave and I had been trying to plan a trip before Christmas. Since we fly standby we really can't make any concrete plans until a few days or in some cases a day out. So on Thursday and Friday I spend much of my day researching hotels, rental cars and flights. We were considering a wide range of destinations from Washington State to Puerto Rico. On Friday night we were checking the flights with plans to fly out to Las Vegas on Saturday. The flights had been looking really weird all day. They looked good then they looked really bad but at the last minute everyone on the standby list made the flight. So at about 6:30 Dave suggested that we go down to the airport that night and attempt to make the last flight of the night (even though the listing showed -6 seats with 6 people in front of us on the standby list). Madison was the first to run right upstairs and start packing (oh yeah I didn't mention that we hadn't packed yet!!). I wasn't really rushing because I thought we would NEVER make it. Not only because the flight was booked up but because it was 6:30 and we hadn't even packed and the flight left at 9:50.
We finally got our stuff packed and out the door. We made it to the airport in 30 minutes!! Record timing! We got right through security and to our gate. The flight had actually been delayed until 10:30. Which wasn't in our favor because it gave anyone who might have missed the 9:50 flight more time to make it. Somehow and I don't know how we made the flight. We were actually pretty shocked. So off we were to Vegas!!
We didn't get to Vegas until about 12:00 Vegas time which was 3:00 our time. We stayed in a hotel in Vegas that night and got up the next morning and headed for the Grand Canyon. It was about a 5 hour drive. We stopped at the Hoover Dam on the way which was really amazing to see.
The Grand Canyon was incredible!! We got there right at sunset which was beautiful. I was really amazed when I walked up to it the first time. It is breathtaking!! There was a lot of snow on the ground and some ice. I couldn't believe how dangerous it was. You could walk right up to the edge of it and look down. Only some places had railings. And there was ice!! I kept Madison on a close watch. I was so scared she was going to fall in. She had a blast though playing in the snow.
We spent that night and the next day at the Grand Canyon and drove back to Vegas the next evening. We had a really fun trip but were so happy to make the 6:30 a.m. flight back to Atlanta. Now we are home and ready for Christmas with our families!!
