most people i know don't announce to the www that they are trying to have babies. 
but i guess we are not most people.

when we were dating we kept our relationship a secret for a month. 
we kept our engagement (well our decision to get married) a secret for a month.
and if it were up to me, we would keep the fact that we just had my birth control removed 
(it was in my arm)
a secret as well. 
but my husb likes to tell people things, so now you all know too!

we are officially crazy  trying!

with this information out, i fear that i will constantly be getting the question of "are you pregnant yet?!"
....mainly from my mom but i fear it none the less.

so don't ask =)

we will let you know when it happens!

i was scared. 
for two reasons. 

1. being cut open to have it removed
2. for the outcomes that this descision will create! (i will probably do a post on this one all by itself)

brock was so sweet and got off work early to come with me cause he knew i was nervous.

we went to spaghetti factory afterwards to celebrate!

so there you have it.
i don't think the severity of this decision has fully set in....and probably wont till we see the double pink lines on that stick.....

p.s. i can't wait till my dang hair grows out so that when i curl it i don't look like a country western singer with big ol' hair

kordell and renee (MIL & FIL) have been in town for a family reunion so we have gotten a lot of 
norton family time in this last week.
one night we set up a little pool party at my work. 

yes, this is where I work. 
and I have the opportunity to use this pool whenever i want. and in all the 2.5 years i have worked there, this is the first time i have swam in the pool. 

we had all the niece and nephews there (minus baby lily)

yesterday for FHE we decided to knock out a couple projects.

i found this laundry basket at the thrift store for $7.00
and decided to add a little something

we have had these baskets since we bought our house,
 so while we had the stencils out, we did these as well
