Back to the Land of the Living

I'm finally feeling better! Good even! After weeks and weeks of  morning sickness I can finally say I haven't gotten physically sick in two weeks. My energy level is returning back to normal. Its great. I have officially become a human eating machine, and I actually like the way food tastes. My first truly great meal was at a restaurant named Chino Latino's. I pretty much love everything I've ever had there, but I had been craving a dish called Black Laab. It is basically spicy beef Thai lettuce wraps. I haven't tasted something so great in awhile, and honestly I would eat it everyday if I could. Seriously. AMAZING. Anyway, ever since eating it I've turned the corner and I'm looking forward to all the new surprises the 2nd Trimester brings.

Morgan's Birthday

Last Friday was Morgan's 26th birthday. It was a great day. First we heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time. Which of course was amazing. Then Morgan and I went and ate cupcakes at one of our favorite cake places. But the main event for the afternoon was going to the Science Museum to see the Dead Sea Scrolls. It was a wonderful exhibit. It was truly amazing to see the scrolls. They are an amazing historical, religious, and anthropological discovery. The exhibit was really done well, especially the audio tour that came with the exhibit. I highly recommend anyone in the area to come and see the exhibit. It was truly worth the money. Finally, Morgan and I ended the evening with a wonderful dinner out.

All around, it was a wonderful day and a great way to celebrate my favorite person's birthday. Happy Birthday Morgan!!

New Baby :-)

Surprise!! I'm pregnant! Yay!! I'm 13 weeks along, due March 20, 2011. Morgan and I found out a couple weeks before the Bar Exam back in July. Its been a long first trimester and I'm still waiting for the nausea to end. Honestly the exhaustion and nausea is a BIG reason I've been so lazy on blogging lately. Its also a big reason why Morgan and I haven't done a whole lot after the Bar Exam ended.

We had a slight medical scare in the beginning but it turned out to be nothing. But the good news is we got a couple extra super early ultrasounds out of it. Which were really cool to see and amazing to have.

Thankfully since the scare, everything with the pregnancy has been perfectly normal! We had our first "regular ultrasound" when I was 9 weeks and 2 days. However, the baby was measuring a little bit bigger than that at 10 weeks and 1 day. This ultrasound has been one of the most amazing things I have ever experienced in my life. We saw the baby's heart be…

Labor Day Weeked

Morgan and I had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend. It was basically a weekend of firsts and lasts for us.

On Friday night we had our first fire of the fall. We sat outside by our fire pit and listened to the Twins game on the radio under a blanket. It was great to chill out in the cool weather and it made me very excited for the fall weather that is slowly approaching. Nettie loves the fire, in fact, she likes it a little too much and has to be closely watched or else she will burn herself. Lexi, on the other hand, hated the fire. This is the first one we have had since we adopted her, and she basically had to be forced to sit with us. By the end of the game she had gotten a little better, so hopefully as the fall progresses she will get more comfortable with them.

Saturday included the "lasts" of the weekend. It was the last time we were able to hangout with CJ before she moved back to Chicago. :-( So sad. I'm happy shes found a good job and gets to be closer to her boyfrie…
