Hello, hello.  As some of you will see I have been on your page. I have liked your posts and or commented on them.  I only looked through DEC but I know I have missed much more than that. I have not seen all of you or caught up on all of you but I am trying.  

SOO what has been going on with me you ask?  A lot.  We moved recently from NY to a place near Cape May, NJ.  It is beautiful here. We have a condo on the water and it is perfection. I also am working from home here, so me, belly and pj’s get all the time in the world to do work without stress.  I LOVE it! 

We recently got back from a trip to Turks and Caicos, it is where Trent and I spent our valentines day.  We went with Trent’s side of the family.  His Dad and Stepmom made it possible for us to go, and his sister came along too.  It was simply one of the best vacations of my life. We relaxed, read, played, and just really enjoyed one another’s company.  Usually on vacations with my side of the family there are attitudes involved, so it was nice not to have that!  Not to mention it was beautiful where we stayed… do you want see?  I am not trying to make you jealous but just know you will be.

We had our own house and it was spectacular to say the least..

So now we are back home and getting ready for our baby BOY!  His name is going to be Hunter Bradley and we are very excited for him to come out of my belly so I can put some cute clothes on him 🙂 Hahaha. We are just excited for him in general but there are some cute outfits in waiting for him.  

So in a nutshell that is what has been going on. You know we are movers and shakers!  I should be able to post a bit more, now that I have internet service at home (which I really did not in NY). 

I have missed you guys!  xoxo


Hey all! So sorry I have been gone for wayyyy to long. I have not even had the chance to catch up on everyone and what you are all doing. I will, I promise.

I have been a sleeping beauty. When I get home from work I make dinner, take a shower, and hop in bed. I literally fall asleep within 5 minutes of me resting my head on my pillow. So needless to say between work and sleep there has been little to no time.

We are still in New York! We have not moved yet but are planning on heading back to New Jersey here in January. So our life never stops.

We are getting ready to head to Florida next Friday for Christmas! We are so excited. It will be wonderful.

The baby is doing great. We get to find out if it is a boy or a girl next week!!! Also Trent turns 29 next week. Soo much going on so little time.

I love you and miss you all!!! We will talk soon.

Xoxox


We just could not hold it in.  We told Trents family this past weekend and we told my parents and sister via SKYPE.

We went home for Trent’s dads suprise 50th birthday! We got into the city around 11:30pm.  Trents mom picked us up and we got home and handed her a box.  She opened the box and inside it was a pic of Trent and I holding up a sign saying “Can we call you Grandma?”.  She got up and gave us hugs and immediatly started showing me things she had kept from when Trent was a baby.  It was so very sweet.

The next morning, Trent’s sister L came over to drop her car off for us and we gave her a box with a picture saying “Can we call you Aunt Lindy”.  She jumped up and screamed and gave us hugs and was super excited too.  Everyone was just so happy and so thrilled for us.  It was awesome.  It makes me want to have more news like this all the time. HAHA!  I love making people happy.

Later on that night for Dad’s suprise birthday party we all dressed up like “hicks” and strolled down the hill singing Happy Birthday.  Dad stepped outside to a group of his friends and family and locked eyes with Trent immediatly.  I think he was on the verge of tears. It was an amazing sight and then Trent and I went inside and got Dad and Smom (step mom) together, we sat them down (it was really my step mom’s birthday and dads birthday is this Sunday) and handed them their own boxes. They opened it and could not read it because it was dark upstairs and so I blurted out “It says Can we call you Grandma”.  Immidiatly Smom burst into tears, Dad was fist pumping saying “I am going to be a GRANDPA” “You guys aren’t joking right?” and Smom yelled “This is going to be the most spoiled baby ever… I am going to be a Grandma”.  We had a huge group hug and it was just wonderful. SO MUCH FUN!

When we got back to NY, I thought about the waiting to tell my parents until Christmas thing. I told Trent “If my mom buys me clothes it is going to be a waste of money, cause I won’t be able to fit into them for a long time”  ANd I am sure I will have gained some weight since then.  So Trent decided we could SKYPE and tell them. 

So I wrote on my belly in eye liner that “I’m Pregnant”.  I got my parents on SKYPE for the first time,which was a chore in itself really. HAHA!  And my dad was just about to leave to go to a pool tournament and I said, wait… I have a rash and I need you to look at it.  So my parents are both peering at me through SKYPE and they go.. WHOA What is THAT?  And i come closer to the screen and they look at my belly and then look into the camera and say “Really?! Is that true?!”  (apprently Trent and I joke around too much.. no one believes us)  We say “YES!” and everyone is excited again! 

I get off with them and tell my sister to SKYPE me. She says she is sleeping and I say “give me 5 minutes and you can go back to bed.”  I do the same thing to her as I did my parents and she is excited and we talk about how cool it is and then she says she cannot go to bed! HAHA. It was soo much fun telling them. I wish I could tell people something cool everyday. THAT would be fun!

So that is how our family found out. We are still not telling other people yet because we are still “in the woods” but once I hit my 2nd trimester I am going to be screaming it from the rooftops! YAY BABIES!!!


So my parents have been having a wonderful time in FL.  The love thier kids and LOVE living the retired/unretired life.  My mom says “I am finally a stay at home mom” and my dad has kids to pick on.  However it looks like there is a bit of spiritual warfare going on.

The site is a loosely based Christian campus as in the only church on site is of Christian denomination.  The teachers and students are allowed to hold Bible studies together without problem. 

SO things are going good, but there seems to be a gentleman who works with my dad who either really feels my dad is not a “parent” figure or is jealous because the kids like my dad more than him.  My dad is funny, outgoing, and if he catches you doing something wrong, he will let you correct yourself before giving punishment.  My dad has suprised the boys and have done some chores for them once in a while (cleaning the bathroom that all 90 boys use), running a vaccuum at the end of the weekend.  Now my parents did this for my sister and I too.  We never had set chores, but if they asked us to do something we did it, but I would come home to my mom having cleaned my room for me or my dad having done the dishes for me. It is something you do to let others know you appreciate them and just a little boost of something nice.

Well the other guy does not like it and gets upset that my dad is not making the boys responsible and he is ruining their manhood. BLAH BLAH BLAH.

My dad also played a joke on a kid who he is friends with. The kid laughed, my dad laughed and then my dad got in trouble and was told my the administration that if he made one more mistake that he would be let go.  Wait a sec, so it is 2 strikes and your out? And the joke was exactly that, a joke, everyone understood it.

Then after that my parents were asked to no longer hold the Bible study with the teens.  They would find someone else to do the important job.

So now my parents feel like they are on pins and needles, like they can’t make a good choice because everything they choose is wrong.

So that is what is going on in their world.  If you think about them pray for them.

 

Thanks 🙂


Wanna know something super fun?!!!! We ……..are……having….a…… BABY!!! I just found out this morning. You know before my family does. We are not telling them until Christmas. SOOO all you organic mom’s out there, I need advice on foods and cloth diapers. You know I have always been a little crunchy but with our Tot on the way it is probably going to get out of control quickly. Okay, got to go. SHHHHH remember it is a secret till Christmas 🙂


i stole money from myself.


*Please sing the title of the post* 🙂

 

So Trent and I moved out a couple days after my sister left us.  We made our way back home and one of the first things we did was apply to get a gun!  YAY gun freedom in America.  So we went to a locally owned store (buy local when you can) and I chose the new addition to our family.

Me signing the paperwork so we can take the newest baby home with us.  This is my first gun purchase.  Trent has a hand gun but I did not, so it was a pretty exciting moment for me. Wanna know what I decided to get?  A Smith and Wessen Body Guard .380.  She is all black and has a laser you can hit on either side of the gun.  She is soooooo pretty, but I do not actually have a good shot of her.

Here is me with my new purchased baby.  Now if you are wondering why we got a laser on it, it is because I feel if you are really in a situation where you are going to have to shoot someone, you wanna make sure you get them. If you are defending yourself it is because someone is doing something illegal and you wanna make sure they stop.  So that is the reason, but it does not mean you do not have to practice shooting. So practice I did!

The next pics are me in my pj’s so please excuse the hair and overall look.

 
You will notice in the pick that I am right handed but yet my right eye is closed.  Yes, that is correct. I shoot with my left eye because I am a nut!  I can shoot with my right eye, but I am left eye dominant. Soooo that is what I got.

I am sad thought because New Jersey does not allow hand guns (yea they are redic here) so I had to leave her at home.  When you purchase a gun before you cross state lines with it you need to make sure you know the laws. New Jersey and New York to not allow hand guns or concealed carry (even if you are legal in your state)… so stupid but it is what it is.  The people of New York and New Jersey gave up their 2nd Amendment..idiots! 🙂 Because we know how well criminals follow the laws, so you will not see any gun violence in these states… oh wait YES YOU DO!!! A pharmacy was being robbed here just the other day and the guy behind the counter was legally carrying because he is in the Army Reserves and he was able to stop the criminal! YAY responsible gun owners!

Sorry about my little rant. BACK to being super happy I am a gun owner and I plan on being a concealed gun owner soon and I will take my baby everywhere with me! YAY!!!
