Boy boy boy!


Its public- we're having a little boy! I couldn't possibly be any happier. We broke the news to our family last night at Phil's birthday party, in writing, on a cake. It was hard to keep the secret that long, but we did it. Everyone was happy, especially my brother who seemed to just love talking about his soon-to-be nephew. It was also great to have my entire family around (sans Evan..) for one evening. Phil was glowing, but then again it might have been my super homemade sangria...


My niece Alexandra celebrated by showering us with baby kisses.

Backtrack to saturday-I really have to mention the beautiful wedding we attended for another of my Fab 5 buddies. It was made even more fantastic by the company we kept- our close friends, and the men that were by my husband's side while he served in Iraq. Noreen and Mike had a simply justice of the peace ceremony two years ago, as their wedding plans were cancelled by Mike's impending deployment. I am so pleased they were finally able to celebrate their marriage and have a huge reception for friends and family. But what reception would be complete without bumping into an old classmate from those awkward jr. high years? Oh yes, the pleasure was NOT mine when I was recognized by Colleen, a former teammate of the soccer team, and member of the popular/cheerleader clique back in 1988.

Very awkward, especially when I noted a severe communication problem between us. She had trouble understanding me, I guess, and I could not tell whether it was due to the speakers behind us or the fact that she was completely wasted.
