I'm such a fan of the snow! When I was a little girl, I'd crawl into my parents bed at 5 am and turn on the news...watching and waiting for my school to be among the list of closures. I'd squeal with delight when I realized my day would be filled with snowmen and sleds instead of math and books. As soon as the sun came up, I'd run out and grab every neighborhood kid I could find and off we'd go into the winter wonderland. The only thing that could lure us inside was hot chocolate!
Even now that I'm older, I'm still in love with the snow! Yesterday I felt so motivated by our little blizzard that I put up the Christmas tree (all the while listening to Spirit 105.3, of course). Given that this is Joel and my first Christmas in our house, we only have about 3 ornaments... two of which are from Starbucks :-) so I went to my mom's house and stole (ahem, borrowed) some of hers. Also, I was very impressed that our cat, Gracie, hasn't knocked anything over yet. We'll see if that's still in effect this evening when I get home from work.
As for this baby - she's about 4 1/2 weeks away from her little due date. It's so hard to predict if she'll be early or late, but my money's on early. Even some sweet gal at the grocery store this morning said "oooh, she looks low," which I've been hearing more of lately. So.... the countdown is in progress and I'll be sure to keep you updated!
And a special little exclusive: we've decided on her name, and I'm keeping it a secret on-air. But I'm gonna announce it in this journal in my next post if you'd like to know a little early. :-)
