I am One Lucky Girl..

So a few months ago we found out there would be an ice cream parlor opening up about 20 min away that has BLUEBELL ice cream..We were so excited! I hadn't been there with Tyler yet so a few weeks ago we went with my sister and her hubby Brandon, but of course we only walked away with a picture of the ice cream. The flavors were delicious and it just made me feel all warm and homey inside.

Then Thanksgiving was here, and my little brother that I love so much (Levi) came down from BYUI. It was so fun to have him here to play games and hang out and eat food with..And if you know of any cute girls in the Rexburg area, I think he's available right now, but then again maybe not. Tyler and I were up in Layton with his family on Thanksgiving, and Levi and my sister had a big New Orleans type Thanksgiving dinner with some of our New Orleans friends. It was all a blast.

Tyler and I's nephew Gabe turned 4 a few weeks ago so we went out with Nick and Melissa to Texas Roadhouse with the little guy..he is the cutest little 4 year old and we love him lots.. 

Then it was time for our wonderful getaway to Cabo..which was in fact wonderful. Our days consisted of eating breakfast, laying out, drinking fruity drinks( some out of pineapples), playing tennis (which was Tylers first time playing and he now loves it, and I love that we have a new hobby we can do togther), eating more, and relaxing. At night we would have our game time with speed tournaments. It was so nice to be in the warmth, and we loved having fun with Jeremy and Jani. And just FYI, at my recent Dr.'s appt they were glad I had gained a few pounds, which I directly trace back to Thanksgiving and this trip. I'm sure baby went through a huge growth spurt. Thank you Tyler for treating me to this time together, and Jeremy and Jani for all the fun.

And then...last but certainly not least, we found out on Tuesday that we are having a GIRL!! We are both ecstatic and here is her first outfit..that I am obsessed with. And it was on the clearance rack. I of course balled during the appt and Tyler had the biggest grin I've ever seen. It was amazing seeing her profile, and tiny hands and feet..It was just amazing..We were waiting to tell our parents with a surprise, so last night we told Tyler's parents before the family Christmas party..We had a cute little girl onesie that said "Grandma Loves Me"..It was exciting..We were planning on telling my parents on Tuesday when we get down to New Orleans but 2 mornings ago I completely slipped on the phone with my mom and said "she"...I can't believe I did that. But my Dad is still in the dark and he can't wait for the surprise..and I can't wait to tell him.. The past few weeks have been such a dream and I am so grateful for all of it. I can't wait to go to New Orleans to see all my family, I sure do miss them. But it's time to put my stretchy pants on and get down to partying! Here we go!!
