That is my estimated due date. It looks like Aiden is going to be a big brother!

I had a really vivid dream last night that I was in the hospital. But instead of being in the hospital bed, my husband was and he had a newborn baby girl asleep on his chest. I could see the perfect little face so clearly. Don't ask me why he was lying in the bed, who can explain these weird dreams. But the fact that it felt like the same type of dreams I had when I was pregnant with Aiden, compelled me to get up and test this morning. Other than that, I had no indication that I was maybe pregnant. Nothing. Of course now I feel nauseated, funny how fast that happens. I've already called my doctor and begged for Zofran.

Welcome to the world Zachary!
My good friend Jamila just welcomed her son into the world last week.

He is the most perfect, beautiful, and precious little guy. I am so in love and I'm sure his mommy is even MORE smitten!

You are going to be so spoiled by all of your Aunties. Smooches!!

On the road again
Just can't wait to get on the road again.

We're going to Virginia next week to be with my family while my step-father undergoes surgery for prostate cancer. We're leaving Monday around midnight and driving through. Should take us about 8-9 hours to get there.

I wish I had time to visit my friends while I'm in the state but we're driving back on Thursday night so its only a quick trip. I doubt there will be time for other things. Besides, we're traveling with my brother and the dreaded sister in-law, no one should be subjected to that.

You are on my shit list

He may look innocent but he is evil. He waits under little boys cribs until they've slept 2/3 of their nap and then meows nonstop until they wake up screaming and will not have a chance of going back to sleep. He will then slink away with a look that says "I didn't do it."

In Memory of Evelyn
One year ago today my friend sent me a frightening e-mail telling us that her niece was missing and even though it was a long shot (they're in the midwest and I'm on the east coast) that we would see her, she wanted to know if there was any way we could help.


A search for Evelyn began in Floyd, Iowa and lasted six days with unfortunate results. Evelyn Celeste Miller was found in the Cedar River in Iowa. She was only 5. One year later, friends and family are still missing Evey and praying that justice will prevail in solving her murder case.


Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers. They say that time heals all wounds but I'm not sure anyone/anything could fill the void in this families life that was left when someone took her from this world. Justice will be served to the bastard that has taken such a precious little girl. I believe it with all my heart.

A memorial fund has been set up in Evelyn's memory. The fund will be used to make donations to community programs in Evelyn's name. Anyone interested in making a donation can send it to:
