Welcome!

Hello and welcome! So I've decided to start a blog to keep all our family and friends updated on the latest news with us. AND I thought this would be a great way to document this most amazing time in my life. My boyfriend Woo and I are about 7 months pregnant with our first child, a boy! In more specific doctor's terms, we're 30 1/2 weeks pregnant as of right about nowish and I couldn't be happier and more thankful for all that is my life these days.


We're due January 4th, so here's hoping for a speedy delivery and a smooth labor, and I wouldn't mind a little less heartburn between now and then either. It's been fun and I've honestly enjoyed pregnancy a lot! I think Woo could tell you that I'm a happy little pregnant person, which I'm thankful for because I know how easily it could have gone the other way. Besides the heartburn, some back pain and a glucose intolerance that, thankfully, isn't too serious, I haven't had any morning sickness or any real scares or concerns. Whew! BTW - Stacey, Nancy, Jennifer and Amanda: I know you girls can appreciate how much this glucose intolerance thing is getting on my nerves. What's a pregnancy without dessert??? 2 more months, come on January!


We're in the middle of baby shower planning and I'm so excited! The date we've set is December 4th, and our great friends Shannon, Cody, Rachael and G are all chipping in time and resources to make it everything Woo and I could ever hope for. I really wish we could have all our friends and family with us but I'm happy to have good friends this far from home to be able to share this time of my life with. If I haven't said it enough, THANK YOU guys for the amazing people that you are. Can't wait to see how it all comes together!


In other news, Woo and I both just had birthdays (his in September, mine earlier this month). We celebrated his out with friends at a pub crawl on our beach cruisers. We had a blast, if you couldn't tell from the photos on facebook. And for mine, Woo got me an amazing full body massage and then he took me to dinner at the Sanctuary in Scottsdale. It was nothing short of AMAZING. He even took a day off work to hang out with me. Have I mentioned that this guy is a man after my own heart???? I'm a lucky girl. :)


OK, I tend to chat too much and a blog without photos is just some boring person's even more boring thoughts, so here's a couple from Woo's birthday:


 And a few from my birthday dinner:


We've had a great Fall so far! Woo's been working out and being really healthy for me. I've been so proud of him. Today he went to his boot camp in the morning and my dog, Mushu, and I walked a mile along the Green Belt (a gorgeous park here that stretches for miles) between our apartment and his gym to meet him there. It was such a beautiful day out. Phoenix is so pleasant once it cools off after summer. Mushu saw some ducks and freaked out trying to get to them. It was pretty funny and thankfully, I had my camera.


We had a good day out and did a little running around to get Woo's costume for work tonight. Last weekend at Dos Gringos (the bar where he works) the theme was the 80's so he was Data from the Goonies. It was awesome.


Today he went in as a trademark scene from a John Woo film - the scenes in which our hero meets the villain and there are doves that scatter and fly off to indicate the seriousness of the situation...genius...we were cracking up about it while he was getting ready.


I've yet to have a dull Halloween around this guy. :)

Speaking of which, have you been "booed" yet??? All month my co-workers and I have been booing each other - leaving treats and goodies on each other's desks with a note to pay it forward and boo two more people. So in the spirit of all things yummy and ghoulish, I decided to boo Woo at work tonight. I took him this treat and asked one of his security guys to give it to him and not to tell him I was there. Well Woo's too clever and fast for me so I got busted trying to jump back in the car. But it was fun and I got a sweet thank you kiss out of it so well worth the effort. Here's the boo:


Of course, I secretly hope he brings some of the popcorn home. ;)

OK, that's October for us. Happy Halloween, loved ones! More to come and, because my friend Jennifer in Nashville mentioned it on facebook and I totally agree with her, hopefully some more updated belly bump photos! Stay tuned and good night for now!
