It's hard to believe that it's already 2012! Anyone else having a hard time remembering to write the new year on checks or any other document? You are not alone. I can't say I'm one for setting the typical "resolutions", however, this year will bring with it some BIG changes, so Mr. N. and I are setting our goals accordingly. 

Oh yes, WE ARE PREGNANT! I am in my 10th week and we are beyond thankful. On Thanksgiving day we went in bright and early for a blood test and three grueling hours later, while we were in the car on the way to my in-law's house, we got the call that there is a baby on the way. Yes, we pulled off the road in a safe and non-scary way. Yes, we cried. Yes, we thanked God and have continued to thank Him every day. We know that not every first procedure works, so we feel extra blessed. All of this to say, this year is going to be crazy different for us. 

So, in choosing what I'd like to accomplish this year it's very much like a parfait.....lots of layers. Mr. N. and I are still working on meshing our goals for the year, but right now it's including a lot of prep work and getting the house ready for a tiny human this July/August. I'm ready for spring cleaning like never before and am looking forward to my nausea subsiding so that I can dive in a little more forcefully to such projects. But all in good time. Once I have a more comprehensive list to share I will do so. 

Hope that you all are enjoying the new year so far!


  1. Congratulations to you and Mr. N!!! Praying all goes well for you, baby, and all of your goals.

    Hugs and blessings! Mums = )

  2. I wrote 2010 on Cora's registration form for swimming today. Apparently, I'm living in the past. :)
