We're Having A Baby - Telling Riley

Today I went in to the doctor's office and got a blood test and officially confirmed that we are having a baby!  I initially wanted to wait until Sunday to tell Riley because it is Father's Day.  I really wanted to wait as I thought it would be really memorable, but I was too excited and couldn't wait to tell Riley.

This evening Riley was downstairs cleaning guns and I called him upstairs.  I had to laugh a little as he came upstairs saying "This better be good." out of annoyance of me asking him to come upstairs.

As he walked into the room he saw me sitting on the end of the bed with a card and baby sock monkey.  Immediately a huge smile came across his face.  Inside the card I had written,"The only thing better than having you as my husband is our children having you was their dad.  You're gonna be a DADDY!"  I, of course, teared up and he asked, "Are you serious?"

Riley came up with the idea of doing a sock monkey room for our someday baby quite a while ago.  I was just impressed that he actually cared, so of course I had to go along with it.  Plus I think it's pretty cute too!

On a funny side note.... I had been complaining to Riley earlier the previous week about having cramps.  He made some silly comment about how "he had a feeling" that I was pregnant and referenced the Black Eyed Peas song I Gotta Feeling.  Once I shared the news with Riley today, I hit the play button on my phone to play the song.  We both had a good laugh about it :)

1st Anniversary

This past weekend Riley and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary.  It's hard to believe that we've been married a whole year.  

We ate at Taco Bell for lunch which was perfect.  When Riley and I celebrated our five year dating anniversary, he took me to Taco Bell.  The day he proposed, we also ate at Taco Bell.  It only seemed fitting that we keep the tradition going.

We ate dinner at Longhorn's followed by cutting into our wedding cake.  I was nervous about the cake being dried out and gross, but it was really moist and yummy.  Grandma Mary's cake did not disappoint.
