Why is it then that I cannot get babies off the brain!?!!!?
We have both discussed it a million times that we want to enjoy just being together right now, especially after being apart for so many years (living long distance). We really have a good life and lots of exciting plans that are coming up this year...
1. Flagler, FL in 2 weeks!
2. 2 weddings in May
3. Beer Olympics in July
4. Hawaii in August
But it is baby bonanza in my mind. I am driving myself CRAZY. I never wanted to be that girl who nags and nags about having a baby. But I am her. I can't stand her. I think about babies, I write down baby names that I like, I stop and stare at baby clothes at the mall, every show I turn on has babies on it, an influx of my friends are getting pregnant all at once, it is BABY everywhere I turn.
Brandon just kind of ignores me when I go on baby-talking sprees. Hahhha, some how he has been able to hold his frustration with hearing about babies non-stop to a minimum. I am about ready to lash out at myself. I just want to be happy with our lives where we are right now and all the good we have in it and take advantage of it.
I seriously need to stop with the baby-thing. I'm going mad.

Top 5 reasons we'll miss the Alero:
5. It drives like a racecar.
4. The cruise control was always on (because I scotch-taped it down)
3. Great gas mileage
2. Knew the road from Washpa to Brooklyn to Johnstown by heart.
1. She was ours.
Although it is a bitter goodbye, it is definitely a sweet hello to our new car!! B and I spent the better part of Saturday at the Jeep dealership looking at some different vehicles and decided on a Midnight blue Jeep Grand Cherokee. So far-we love it. We have actually been driving it since Saturday (they gave it to us on "drive-out"). I think the heated seats are reason enough to have it...seriously love those heated seats. The Jeep is sooo much more Erie-appropriate and B has been having a blast driving through/over whatever he damn well pleases.
The weather has been a little less crazy this past weekend/week-so we haven't been able to try out our new hemi (yes, it has a hemi!!) to its full potential yet. We have no concerns though with this Erie winter and we know we'll get a chance to give it a go soon.
Other reasons for a great weekend:
3. got back from a long week in CA with work.
2. Splash Lagoon on Saturday AND Sunday with Cera & Gregg!
1. STEELERS WON THE SUPERBOWL. 6-pack, baby.
