Fall Fun

After our exciting baby news at the beginning of October we started off our BUSY fall with a trip to West Texas for a Texas Tech football game.  We flew to Midland on a Friday evening and told my parents our exciting news.  I wrapped a little present with an outfit that said "Best Grandparents" (or something like that) dad looked up at me and said, "Are you trying to tell us you're pregnant?"  Haha.  They were super excited.  The next day we made our way to the LBK for the Tech vs A&M game.  I got my yearly fix of Orlando's mafia queso but had to go without a Chimey's margarita this year! 

Two weeks later we headed to San Antonio for the Barteau-Zito wedding.  We stayed at the J.W. Marriott Hill Country Resort which was super nice and relaxing.  I spent Saturday by the pool while Gordon played golf with some of his buddies.  There's nothing better than reading a good book by the pool!

We had our first doctors appointment that following Monday.  We didn't actually see the doctor that day but I did have an ultrasound to find out exactly how far along in the pregnancy I was.  The baby's heart rate was 140 and it measured 7 weeks 1 day making my due date June 10, 2012.  It's such a relief to see that little flash of a heartbeat on the screen!  If you know me you know I worry far TOO much so having this day finally come was good for us all.  Here's a picture of our little sweet pea. 

November was filled with even more fun!!!  One of my best college friends got married on 11.11.11 :)  Gordon had to work so my mom and I had a fun girls weekend in Dallas.  When I wasn't doing wedding stuff she and I did some baby shopping!   Here's a picture with the beautiful bride and the 3 Lindsey's. 

Next up was Gordon's 30th birthday.  His first surprise of the day was his new Green EGG grill.  We'd heard great things about them so I knew it would be a perfect gift for such a special birthday year.  The next surprise was that night.  His parents and I planned a surprise party at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants.  He was SHOCKED and couldn't believe his parents were in town all the way from Texarkana.  We had a great night with some of our close friends and family.

And last but not least Thanksgiving weekend.  We had a relaxing Thanksgiving day in Midland with some of my mom's side of the family.  Gordon and my dad hunted Thursday and Friday morning so he was an extra happy man.  Especially after he got a big buck on Friday (which he insists we are going to hang in our home).  After a yummy lunch at Luigi's we headed to Dallas for the Tech vs Baylor football game.  On Saturday, we did a little shopping at the Galleria before heading to the Cowboys Stadium for the game.  My dad managed to get us FABULOUS suite tickets.  Watching football has never been so fun...and comfortable.  Tech may have lost the football game but we all managed to have a great time.

Thanks again Mom and Dad!

16 weeks in Texarkana for Christmas

I was 12 weeks pregnant during Thanksgiving weekend.  I still can't believe how fast the first trimester flew by!  Luckily, I felt great with only a little nausea after breakfast.  After watching so many of my friends suffer from morning sickness I feel extra blessed to have breezed right through the first 12 weeks. 
Up next....the gender reveal party!!!
