Update on us

So, here's a long-awaited update.

Life is going well! Our condo is rented out, starting in August, so we are beginning the process of moving. This process is complicated because most likely, we will not be moving to England at the same time that we move out of our place, so we will be living with Dave's parents, or if we're here a little longer, we'll be looking for a place to rent monthly until our visas are ready. We will be having a big garage sale to get rid of lots of our stuff, and may be selling furniture and a car, so if you know anyone interested, keep your eyes and ears open for more information later on. Most of the things that we own will be going into storage as I don't feel they are worth shipping to England.

We will be able to take a total of 230 pounds (each) of things to England. So, we will start packing our bags very carefully! Dave's work is totally taking care of us during our move, and I am so thankful. We will have a budget to buy things that we need once we get there. We have not chosen yet where exactly we will be living, but think we will be in the Wimbledon (SW London) area. We are looking at 3 and 4 bedroom places, so we will have room for anyone who wants to come visit us!

As far as I know, I am still pregnant ;-) It is still really hard to believe and I easily freak out about any little thing that is happening with my body. We had an ultrasound a little over a week ago, and everything was looking alright! Sorry for the unflattering picture, but its the only "bump" picture I have! I'm 16.5 weeks in this picture. I promise I look at least a little better in person. If all goes according to plan, I will probably be giving birth in England. I hear that people have good experiences there, so we'll see what happens!

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday Dave! Seeing as its his birthday, I thought I might try to embarrass him. Here's a picture of him and my brother acting awesome, as usual. This picture is only a few years old....
This picture was taken the week before he proposed to me. Doesn't he look young? This is about four years ago!
Okay, okay, here's a better one of us from the week we were on the cruise:
I love you so much honey and can't believe I'm married to such an old man - in your late 20's??!! I guess that makes me pretty old, too. Happy birthday!
