Tag - you're it!

I was tagged by my mom and so here goes nothing...

5 weird things about me:

1. Most people grow out of things they loved when they were little, but I remain addicted. I grew up loving Fun Dip and I still love it. I grew up loving popsicles by the box and I still eat them by the box. I grew up singing through entire CDs at one sitting and I still put on these private musical in the sanctity of my room or car. . . maybe someday I will grow up. 

2. Even though I am now married and live in my own house, I still feel the need to sneak food. I don't know if I have a fat kid complex or what. I like to eat when Tyler isn't at home... as if when he catches me eating I will get in trouble. 

3. I hate when people leave their drinking cups out. I follow poor Tyler around putting his cup in the sink after he takes even a little sip out of it. The weird part, however is although leaving a cup out will bug me, I can go weeks with out dusting. Maybe I should switch my priorities.

4. I don't like to try new things... Ty calls it a Baker phobia. We don't like to do new things because we don't like to do things we are bad at. We tend to only be involved in things in which we think we can succeed. My brother Quinn takes this to the extreme (and I love him for it), but I have the same weakness. 

5. I am a very emotional person. Any one who knows me at all know that I will cry at just about anything. I like to think it is because I am sensitive to others, but I think I am just sensitive. I don't hold grudges, I don't get upset with people easily, but I do cry. Tyler would like to say the pregnancy magnified this... but there is no possible way it could have -  I was already crying to the maximum!

Okay I am adding a sixth just so I don't end on a 'Debbie Downer'

6. I love old movies, t.v. shows and music. Some people may think I grew up 50 years ago. I love my "Petticoat Junction," "White Christmas" and anything Doris Day. When I am having a bad day my favorite thing to do is go to Arbys and buy a Jr. Arby's Adventure Meal with  Jamocha shake and sit down to watch an old musical. Most of the time I like to watch the movie alone so that I am free to sing the songs out loud.

Becoming a Daddy!

I love this picture of Ty with our friend's baby. This is Trey Sherman and every time I see Ty playing with him it reminds me how great of a daddy he is going to be...

First comes love, then comes marriage...

... then comes the baby in the baby carriage. Ty and I couldn't be more excited about having a new little girl in our lives. I think the only people more thrilled then us our the new grandmas. Grandma Lori can't stop making baby bracelets and bows. Last night I got the cutest new p.j.'s for baby Andre! Grandma Bonnie keeps making purchases as well. In fact, the baby's wardrobe has been added to by Aunt Pauline and Brittany, Tanae, Lexy and even Grandma Jewkes. Little baby Andre is so excited that she won't stop doing flips in my belly (honestly). My pregnancy has been wonderful so far. I haven't gotten sick and I am not to big yet - I hear it is only downhill from here. Wish me luck!

Ty took me to the driving range on Saturday. It was my first time ever swinging a real golf club (although I would have to say I am a mini-golf pro). I broke his driver in half and missed most of the golf balls by about 6 inches. I may not be the next Tiger Woods, but we did have a few laughs.

"A Whole New World!"

I promised myself that I wouldn't start blogging until I had a child. I know I am still 17 weeks away from that point in my life, but I am going to start blogging anyways. I am struggling with the cute designs and best lay-outs, but for now I will claim that simple is better (even though i don't believe that to be true). Everyone I know has a blog and I have been feeling left out :). So, whether I have anything interesting to say or not - I am joining this part of the world.

Right now Ty and I are in school. Ty is working for UPS and doing medical school interviews. I am teaching dance and getting bigger. We are pregnant! If you didn't now yet... and I am due February 13th. A little girl will be gracing us with her presence around Valentine's Day and I am just hoping she is as cute as my little niece Cambree.

I recently got back from a trip to New York City and had a blast with my mom, Peggy, and Janet. It was the most amazing trip of my life and the only downfall was the swollen ankles on the ride home (I guess I really am pregnant). I don't mean to brag... but I got to go to both "Phantom of the Opera" and "Wicked" (THANK YOU PEGGY) with my mom and let's just say this baby is going to come out appreciating good music! I don't have many pictures on my computer right now... but I promise I will get better at this blogging thing as I go. . .
