We have chosen a Law School.....

and the winner is........Samford University-Cumberland School of Law in Alabama!!! It is a beautiful historic private school in Birmingham and also Michael received a scholarship there! We are excited about the big move which should be happening later this summer.

In other news, I went to the BYU surplus sale today and was able to buy a used (but definitely doesn't look it) Dell Latitude Laptop D800 for $200 dollars! Can't bet that!

More Maternity Pictures!

More updated Maternity Pictures! The first set was taken by my magnificent photographer Michael Wayne Brown when he took me to SLC for my birthday. The second set was taken on Easter Sunday. The last set are pictures from both of our bday dinners. For mine, we ate at The Garden Restaurant and had a great view of the LDS Temple. I also included a picture of us at The Roof, which is where I took Michael for his birthday.

We bought our carseat and stroller!

I just fell in love with this set and am really happy with the travel system we bought. The stroller is metrolite and the carseat is snugride. The colors we have chosen for our nursery are black and white with an accent color that is gender specific so the Rittenhouse travel system matches! Now we just can't wait to actually have a baby to put in it!

For a clearer look at the material and design. It's super cute and unique!

Ultrasound and Stress Test Videos!!!

Michael and I went to our 4th ultrasound today with our specialist and she kept saying over and over again, "Everything is looking really good." We are posting two videos. One focuses on the ultrasound (look for the baby's heartbeat and for he/she doing a thumb's up) and the other focuses on the stress test (at the end, if you look closely, you might be able to see the baby's face). For those of you who are wondering, we did not include ANY shots of the bum!!!

Pictures of our Custom Homemade Crib

When my grandpa found out that my parents were going to have a baby, he got busy making his future grandchild a crib. But since my parents were told that they were going to have only one boy and were not expecting two girls, he had to hurry and make a second one when my mom had us. I guess he didn't really have to hurry since we were so small and liked to sleep in the same crib when we were really young. Anyways, all growing up I was excited cause I hoped my grandpa would make my children's crib. It has been even more exciting than I ever imagined since we were able to custom design it too! Then we found out that he was making a three-in-one bed (crib becomes toddler bed which becomes full size bed)! In the pictures there is only one that shows there are drawers under it but the drawers will be under all of the beds- the crib, toddler and full size bed. In the end it will be painted black.The first picture is of the creator- Clarence Pacheco. Second one is of the crib. Third and Fourth are of the toddler bed and fifth is of the full size bed with drawers under it. Thanks Grandpa Pacheco!

Surprise Family Baby Shower Videos and BYU Graduation!

This past weekend Michael walked for graduation at BYU! I was so proud watching him receive his diploma for Social Sciences- History. Above are a couple pictures of us at Michael's graduation. For his graduation both sides of our family flew in to celebrate. While here, they threw us a surprise family Baby Shower. It was so much fun spending time with our family and we can't wait to use the gifts when our baby arrives! We downloaded a couple videos we made of the baby shower using the new Flip video camera we received as a gift. We used "Dude looks like a Lady" as the song seeing as it fit since our baby's gender is a surprise! For all of our family who checks out our blog: Thank you for the gifts! We know that there was a lot of time spent either picking out or making the presents and we really appreciate the love and support given to us during this exciting time in our lives!
