Is it still Friday the 13th?

Last week we had a "Friday the 13th" day. It was actually a pretty good day ... and then the weekend came. So, I've heard of Saturday the 14th and it seemed to happen to me. I was sick as a dog all weekend. All I did was lay in bed and play on the computer.

So, my Friday the 13th/Saturday the 14th continues because not only was I sick all weekend, and have been driving crazy with work all week, but I managed to have a car wreck today. Yep, the first one in 9 (LONG) years. I'm okay ... which is what counts but I do feel terrible about the car and having to go through this whole process. I'm just hoping that it's painless.

"Poopy, Poopy"

I've been dreading potty training since the day Mallie popped out two years ago. I'll admit that I haven't read any parenting books. I'm treating this just like everything else I've done when it's come to parenthood ... I'm going with the flow. That said, I'm feeling like we're floundering here.

The last few weeks Mallie has been interested in the potty. We got her a potty insert and her own little potty seat ... cause you never know what makes a girl comfortable! Still no success, but we're working on it.

Over the course of the last week, she's figured out how to take her diaper off. Yep ... my girl likes to run free in the wind. Hasn't been too much of a problem until today. Mommy was having a pea-green moment and decided to take a bath and Daddy was in the bedroom watching tv. Neither one of us was paying too close attention to her. All of the sudden I smelled the tell-tale signs of an "accident." Yes, Mallory had barricaded herself into the laundry chute and pooped in there. I guess a girl needs her privacy.

I'm the luckiest girl alive

So not only do I have a loving family, another baby on the way, the most fabulous job, a roof over my head ... and the list goes on ... I've also been saddled with the dreaded morning sickness. Crazy you say? How does that make me lucky? Well, not lucky to have the morning sickness but blessed that I have the best husband in the world. He's picking up the slack and taking care of me and Mallory during all my pea-green moments.

Surprise!'s still a secret. EDD 6/10/2007

More pictures to come

While on the ship they had professional photographers shadowing us to capture our every move. We bought a ton of photos (yes, I'm now broke) but they were so worth it. Now if I would just get off my a$$ and scan them in for the rest of the world to ooohhh and ahhh over.

Dream vacation (why did it end?!)

We loved every moment of the cruise. In fact, on day one we were telling ourselves that we needed to go up to the loyalty ambassador's office and re-book immediately! I didn't know what to expect so I did not have any ideas of what it would be like -- probably what made the trip enjoyable. The whole experience was so insanely relaxing and I loved the thought of knowing that not even work could get ahold of me if I didn't really want them to. It was all up to me to make contact with the outside world. Nothing like being in the middle of the sea to really disengage.

The room was bigger than I thought it would be. At 154 sq ft I was expecting postage stamp. We got a closet. :) There was a couch, two beds pushed together and Mallory's pack n play. There was plenty of room for Mallie to run around.

The food was a little disappointing ... still good just not as fabulous as I would have hoped. On the other hand, it didn't stop us too much since we ate 4 times a day and utilized room service quite often.
Each of the destinations had it's own surprises. Key West wasn't quite as fun as I thought. But, Grand Cayman was more exciting that I could have ever imagined and Cozumel was more beautiful than I'd heard.

There are so many things I could write ... but I'll just be content to carry the memories in my heart.
