Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about dancing in the rain.

Mason about 3 weeks old

And baby makes three...

What better way to start the new year than being parents to the most beautiful baby boy. On October 25th at 1:30am, i was laying in bed sound asleep. To my surprise I was woken up by my water breaking. I sat up all night just timing my contractions until about 6:30 when we finally decided to head to the hospital. We arrived there around 7:00 am and the journey began! These pictures were when everything was still enjoyable...

The day went by pretty fast and my labor was slowly progressing!

At about 9:00 pm, Dr. Parsons (coolest Dr. ever!) came in and said it was time to start pushing. At 9:57 we got to meet our little angel. Mason James Pullenza. He weighed 7lbs 12 oz and was 20 1/2 inches long.

Before we knew it, it was time to go home and start our life as a family.

My Baby Chain!

The other day a girl asked me how many day's I had left in my pregnancy, and to my surprise I had no idea. I felt bad that I didn't know the answer. It kinda felt like when you were dating someone and you got asked how many day's or month's you had been dating and you did'nt know the answer. I really felt like I should know, soo I made this really cheesy paper chain. It's like the kind you used to make as a kid when you were counting down christmas. So I figured out that I had 103 days left and I cut out and stapled 103 rings together and thumb tacked it to the wall. So now when someone asks how many day's I have left, I will always know!

My Crazy New Hobbie... Coupon Clipping !

So one day I was watching Oprah and they had this whole episode on this crazy lady who is an expert coupon clipper. She saves so much money and ends up getting soo much for free. So I thought... who does'nt want to save money? Well I had no idea it was soooo involved. I found this website called and she posts all the latest deals and coupons but also tells you exactly how to become a "Krazy Coupon Lady". I looked at her blog a little and decided to cut out some coupons to use at my next grocery shopping trip. Well, I ended up saving $12.00. Which did'nt feel like very much at the time compared to what this lady saves. Also, it was confusing and frustrating. I realized that if I'm really going to do this, I had better study up, get organized and do it the right way! So... that's what I did. It is still a project in process and I'm still learning, but here are some photos of what I started. In her book, she teaches you how to make a coupon binder so that when you go to the store, it is easy! Wish me luck!!!

Eclipse !!!

I know it's crazy and I may be a little too old for midnight showings of vampire movies... But I just can't help myself. For my birthday, Sam bought me tickets to the midnight preview of Eclipse! It was an interesting night. We started out with dinner at Red Robin and then went to get in line for the movie. Well while we were in line, it started raining, and then the power went out in the theatre. So that meant that could not let anyone in the theatre until it was back on. We stood in line for soo long. The line ended up wrapping half way around the parking lot, and the movie started 30 minutes late! We finally got home at 3:30am. We were sooo tired, but it was a great movie! So again... totally worth it!!!
