Yet, another tag

I have been tagged with the same tag from several of my friends. Here are the rules:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

Great news!

I had my first ultrasound today and got to see our little bean! Everything is looking great and the little sucker is even measuring a week ahead! So the doctor moved my due date up from December 4th to November 28th, Thanksgiving! Woohoo!!!! I also got another prescription for a different anti-nausea medicine, so maybe that will provide a little relief. Who knew each pregnancy got worse! Ugh!

For those that may have a hard time reading the ultrasound, the baby bean is in the dark circle that is just to the left of the center of the picture. :)

I guess the cat is out of the bag!

Thanks "Anonymous" for blowing the horn. :P We are happy to announce that we are expecting our fourth child. This one is due December 4th, so I am about 7 weeks along. My babies typically come early, so we'll probably have a Thanksgiving baby.

I have been TERRIBLY nauseous, and I'm pretty much becoming one with my couch with the occasional affair with the toilet or a bucket...whichever is closer. The doctor prescribed Zofran, an anti-nausea medicine, which does help, but the side-effects are worse than the nausea, so I'm trying not to take it too much. We'll have our first doctor's visit this upcoming Thursday, so be watching from pics from the ultrasound! The kids are very excited, well, the girls are. Baby G doesn't really get it. The girls have been super-helpful and my husband has been Mr. Mom! He's been incredible with me being so sick. Love you honey!

And a word of warning for my beloved readers: I am NOT a happy pregnant woman, so be ready for a lot of complaining and whining. :)

Not too much happening

There's not too much going on over in my world. The red hair is toning down a bit, and I'm really liking it. :) Below is a picture of my friend Tracy and I at a wedding.

A wonderful day for a birthday!

Today, two of my favorite people share a birthday. My dear, sweet husband, and my beautiful sister, Allison!

My husband is the most amazing man! He is the best husband and father. After being sick in bed all weekend with a nasty cold, he took care of the kids and cleaned the house (which we all know is in a constant state of chaos). It looks fabulous!!! He works very hard so I can stay home with our children. He puts up with ALL of my imperfections and quirks. I just love this guy!!!!

Allison is an amazing woman! She is one of the smartest people I know. She is very caring and loving. She is a great mom to the cutest little boys (who aren't so little anymore!) I miss you terribly sister!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The benefit of sick kids

So within the last week, all three of my kids have been sick. They have all needed prescriptions. And thank goodness for prescription rewards! At Kroger, as long as it's not one of their $4 prescriptions, you can use a coupon (even competitors) and get free money.

Tonight I got to get out of the house without kids and go grocery shopping!!! Too bad I was so FREAKING TIRED to enjoy it! Oh well. It was still nice to get $167.67 worth of groceries for FREE!!!!
