My Big Secret

I've been keeping a secret...I'm pregnant. Hubby and I are expecting our first baby at the end of May and we couldn't be more thrilled. For those of you who used to read my other blog we are still logged in for our China adoption and plan to still adopt. Things of course my change, but for now that is our plan. I plan to take some growing belly photos here soon and document the pregnancy. I look forward to getting some tips and advice from you seasoned Mamas.

Holiday Decor

It's getting close to that time of year and I couldn't be more excited! I love decorating for Christmas. I started this weekend by purchasing a wire tree from Crate & Barrel, I love it! We already had the 12 Days of Christmas ornaments and I have to say it's a beautiful piece. I'm also looking for some new ornaments as I'm tired of what we've used in the past. If anyone has seen some must-have ornaments let me know.

On Saturday I stopped by our Target store to find pet costumes for 90% off. I could not resist purchasing a few for our dogs. Below is our black Lab in his banana split costume, he didn't seem to find the humor in it. I purchased an adorable ram costume for our chocolate Lab, however, she would not sit still for a photo. Sorry for the poor photo quality this was taken with my Blackberry.

Have a great week!
