Wow...it really has been a while since my last post! I've joined the throngs on Facebook, and apparently haven't looked back...since August anyway.
So this is a big week of appointments for Carter. He is having his hearing checked Tuesday afternoon since he isn't saying more than a couple of words yet. Lots and lots (and LOTS!) of babbling, but words - not so much. I'm not too concerned, since he follows commands and does lots of signing, but I'm happy to go through the evaluation in case there is anything that we can be doing in the meantime. Then on Friday morning, he is going to have his tear duct cleared - I didn't realize until talking to a friend that this involves anesthesia. So I'm a little nervous, but know that it will be ok. And Jamie's going to take the day off to be with us, which is nice.
What else? I have a new job - as a project manager in the online marketing team. Still BestBuy.com. It's going really well, and I'm enjoying it too. The pay increase is also nice. Running another 5K this Saturday...even though it's going to be cold. I'm going to have to get used to it, since I've committed to run a 5K every month until next September. Then I'll have done one per month for a whole year. I'm taking an online photography class that starts next Monday - I'm SO excited for it! I'm really looking forward to getting better pictures, and there's a little part of me that hopes that maybe someday I can take children and family photos as a side job. We'll see...

Really quick update while I wait for a report to run at work...
Jamie's grandpa passed away on Friday morning. The service was held yesterday morning, and was very nice. Everyone was just really glad that he isn't suffering anymore, and rejoicing that he is in heaven now!
More updates to come soon...promise.

It's snowing! Although it sounds like we're not going to get as much as originally thought.
So, let's see...what's been going on?
There's probably more that I'm leaving out, but considering I haven't updated in three weeks, I guess it's better than nothing!
Here's a question - do you and your spouse/significant other exchange gifts for valentine's day?
Oh yeah - and here's some new photos...

Who knew those quizzes that you get tagged for (or borrow from others) actually had a name? Yep...'meme' . So in honor of that, here goes...
What were you doing 10 years ago? I'd just gotten back from my college choir trip to Kenya & Tanzania. I am in denial that it's been 10 years...what an amazing trip.
What were you doing 1 year ago? Being pregnant...and loving it!
Five snacks you enjoy? Well, they're not snacks I'll be able to enjoy so much any more, now that I'm doing the FAB study, but I really like popcorn, swedish fish, m&m's, cheddar munchies (doritos, cheetos, sun chips and pretzels), and dulce de leche Hagen Daaz
Five songs you know all the lyrics to? Only five? Too hard to pick...I'll have to have an addendum on a later post.
Five things you'd do if you were a millionaire? Meet with a financial planner and set aside enough to earn some good interest somewhere, pay off my parents' debt, pay off my own debt, travel, donate
Five bad habits: Procrastinating, not keeping in touch with friends as much as I should, letting the laundry pile up, picking my cuticles, grinding my teeth when I'm upset
Five things you like doing: Hanging out with my family, scrapbooking, other crafty stuff, playing with my camera, watching movies
Five things you would never wear again: pinned and/or rolled pants, zubaz, hypercolor shirts, jumpers, tap shoes
Five favorite toys: Cabbage Patch Kids, Sit & Spin, Speak & Spell, Transformers, my scooter

The Da Vinci Code (Widescreen Two-Disc Special Edition)
By Tom Hanks, Audrey Tautou, Ian McKellen, Jean Reno, Paul Bettany
I love to read other people's blogs. I don't know why, but I find it so interesting to get a glimpse into other people's lives. One that I found recently that is completely addictive and extremely hilarious is Confessions of a Pioneer Woman. I especially love some of the audio clips...I've laughed out loud.
What blogs do you go to on a regular basis? What keeps you going back?

This is my one little word for 2008. Something for me to remember, to hang on to, to proclaim throughout the year. So many ways for me to apply this to many aspects of my life...
seek: Christ. balance. creativity. opportunities. quality. health. motivation.
Things I'm going to work towards this year:
Happy 2008 everyone...
