Married and Preggers

Hey everyone. So after catching up on Amy's blog, I realized how bad Ive become. I havent updated in months! Tsk Tsk Tsk! Well I guess its been really busy down here in Texas! Im pretty sure everyone knows by now but I am 10 weeks pregnant! We are so........... excited to be parents. Its alot to take in but I know that we have a tremendous amount of love to give and will make wonderful parents. We get more and more excited everyday. For the last several weeks Ive been sick as a dog! Morning sickness??????? HA! I have ALL DAY, EVERYDAY sickness. I feel like im on the verge of throwing up alllllll dayyyyyyy lonnnnnnng. And as for energy.... I feel like Ive never known of such. Im exhausted. I feel like all I do is sleep. Honestly, I dont know how the heck I make it through the work day. Tomorrow will be my first day back to work since the wedding and Im dreading it. There was a small miracle, however, about a week before and during the wedding. All my symptoms seemed to magically disappear for the most part. But as soon as we got home.... BOOM back in full force. So as far as returning to work tomorrow, all I can say is I will do my best :)
We have been thinking of names for the baby already. Farrah Elyse for a girl and Tyson (?) for a boy. I like Bryant for a boy's first name and Ayden or Landon. We are pretty set on Farrah Elyse but still unsure on boy names. Any ideas??????

Well our wedding was AMAZING! Thank you to everyone who came and shared our special day with us. It was great to see everyone. Everyone looked great and was so helpful . We truely hope that you all had a great time and cant wait for the next time we see everyone. Riley and Jadyn made perfect and beautiful flowergirls and Cole was such a dashing ring bearer :) My heart melted when I saw the 3 of them dancing together and have a blast at the reception. They were soooooo cute. Thanks again to everyone that came out. We really couldnt have asked for anything more. I thought I was going to make it through the whole wedding without any "bridezilla" moments...... but........... I didnt. I think every bride has to have atleast one right?!?! It was at the reception because we arrived early and I thought no one knew what the heck they were doing. I went off on the organizer, my mom and even a few of my bridesmaids I think..... Afterwards I felt totally awful and apologized to everyone. I even wrote the Golf Club an apologetic email. I was awful :( But other than that, it was perfection. The music was good and so was the food. It looked like everyone was having a good time and thats what matters. Love, friends, family and food!
I think the ceremony was my favorite part. The lighting in the Church was extraordinary. I cant explain it but it just seemed like the room was glowing and everyone looked like Angels. I loved it. Rev Rick said alot of really important things that I will never forget.

As soon as I get the link for the professional pics I will send it out to everyone. Until then, here are some from my camera. And there are also tons of pics on Amy's blog. Theres a slideshow above and a link for those who want to view one by one

Paintball Tournament

Hello Everyone!

Last weekend was a blast, we had a paintball tournament in Brownwood Texas. It was our first non-local tournament, I was lucky enough to share a hotel room with 6 rowdy paintball players! HAHA!

Team Amped (thats us) performed like true professionals. We swept the first rounds with ease! Only 6 teams (out of about 30 or so) won their way into the finals. We breezed into finals. Afterall was over we placed 2nd! Everyone was happy, although 1st place was a measely 30 points away!!! If only we could have gotten one more kill...... But 2nd place felt very victorious. Our team has gone through some adjustments and this was the FIRST tournament all 6 guys have played together. So just imagine what a little more practice could result in! The prize for 2nd was a large trophy, $1000 and a dose of pride! Enjoy the pics

First official blog :)

Well hello!
Amy, my sister in-law has inspired me! Im going to start blogging about me and Mikes oh-so interesting life. I think I will have enough to share often. I will get better at this as we go along.
Last weekend we went to Austin to spend Easter with Mike's sister Jodie, brother in-law Chris, and nephew Cole. It was a great time and Mikes parents came down as well. We went to a Pat Greene concert on Saturday, which was awesome! We were even lucky enough to get meet and greet passes!! So we got our picture taken with Pat. On Sunday Cole had a great time looking for the hidden Easter eggs and opening THREE Easter baskets! ;) I hope you all had a great holiday.
Oh by the way 4 months exactly until the wedding!!!!
