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 we wake up the next morning and are all wishing for a little bit more sleep, but oh well we have things to do.  So we wake up, have a great breakfast and get ready to go.  We have to take D into NYC to catch her flight and Trent told Neil and I that he could drop us off downtown.  We wanted to go to the DASH store , just to see it really so we took him up on the offer!

This is what Trent and I looked like that morning.  Hahaha!  A little on the rough side but oh well. Moving on: We said goodbye to D and Neil and I got down to business. Our first stop was Kate Spade. 

There is a necklace in Kate Spade and it says MRS.  SOOOOO I decided to buy one for me and one for my sissy!  We have a necklace that we both love because we love being married, but we also have a necklace that we share too. So that is super fun!

After we spent some time in Kate Spade we made our way over to Dash and a few other places.  Dash sucks, let me just tell you.  There was NOTHING there that I would ever want and it was expensive. Like expensive trash. So, from there we need to make it back to the Times Square area.  Again, let me tell you it is 90 plus outside and we are walking it.  At first it was no big deal.  Then it was around 2:00pm and we were close but about 20 blocks away from where we needed to be.  I looked it up on my phone and it said it would take us an hour to get there.  So we hailed a cab but not after my sister told me I was sweating through my shorts.  If you take note, I am wearing grey shorts and instantly become mortified.  We got in the taxi and I told my sister I was worried because now my shorts were pressing against my butt and soaking up the sweat.  She tells me she wants to see it so I kind of scoot so she can get a view and she breaks out laughing hysterically telling me she wants to take a picture. UMM NO! No pics. HAHAHAA!  So After that I do not want to get out of the cab and walk the 2 minutes to Amsterdam Theater. AHHH!  hahaha. It ended up being fine because well… there was nothing I could do about it.

We make it to our seats and the show starts.  At intermission I felt I could leave.  It is not because the play was bad, but I do not think I am one for musicals. HAHA. Neil felt the same way and when we were eating after we could not figure out why we did not like it.  I LOVE musicals, like on TV. I am all about Mary Poppins the movie. So I guess we do not need to do that again. YIKES!  We ended up eating at an awesome burger joint and ended the night..

Thats right CRUMBS! DELISH!!!  We brought them home so we could share with Trent, but that was the weekend. We all had a wonderful time and it was a special 30th for my sister 🙂

I LOVE YOU NEIL!

So we wake up the next morning, feet hurting and loving life.  Trent (my wonderful man) makes us breakfast and coffee.  We then decide he should take us to the mall to do some shopping and shopping we do.  We went to all of our favorite shops and Cheneille got some great birthday clothes. Trent was a great shopper.  He actually picked out a few necklaces for the girls to go with a new outfit.  What a brother!!  We pick up some food from the food court and decide it is time to leave cause we are going to see Cirque at the Radio City Music Hall! YAY

We are ready to go back into the city! We all have head bands on because they are fun 🙂

Again, please remember it is int he 90’s outside and we are lucky we made it with all of our make up still intact But we were super excited and took some pics so you could see Radio City Music Hall behind us. HOW FUN!

The next picture you are going to see is part of the Cirque show and I almost got my camera taken away, but it was kind of worth it. I mean I did not mean to be the one taking pics, but it happens!

The show was SUPER wonderful.  It was in a different language but it was pretty sweet and I would go to a show if you ever get the chance.  It is worth the money!

While we were walking to the show, I asked Neil is she had told Nick she was coming into town (they used to be roomies). She said she had not but had thought about it.  I told her if she wanted him to come out than I would invite Trent out too and we could all grab a drink together.  Lucky for us Nick was coming in from Europe and just got off the plane! YAY!  He met up with us and the drinks were flowin…. FLOWIN!

So my mom collects heart shaped rocks that she finds on the beach and Trent found this rock in a store for her!  What a sweet boy 🙂

After everyone did some drinking the birthday girl decided she wanted to do some dancin.  We asked around and settled on a place called the Mean Fiddler. Oh my gosh it was like a throwback to college and we were singing and dancing and it was SOO FUN!

We were lucky because we found the spot where the A/C was coming out and it cooled us off!  Again, just a wonderful night and around 3:00am I decided it was time to call it a night.  We had to get D on a plane and Neil and I had a show to go to tomorrow.

And I end the night the way I want: Holding my baby’s hand and going home!

There is a DAY 3 to come!!

So my sister turned 30 at the end of July and my parents paid for her and a girlfriend to come to NYC!  I have such great parents.

So the girls came in on a Thursday night and they were supposed to land just 10 min from one another, however that is never how it works in Newark. We get them an hour and a half after their original time slot and go home!

When Neil walks in the door, I of course have the house decorated and cupcakes were made.

                      

Above us in the pic there are some puff balls I made out of tissue paper, they turned out pretty sweet and I am bummed I did not pick a picture with them in it, but moving on.  The next day we woke up pretty early for a day of shopping in the city. This would be my first time going through the city without Trent by my side and I was responsible for my sister and her friend.

We walked to the bus stop and we were already sweating bullets.  I swear it was 98 degrees outside and the pavement was reflecting that heat right back to us. We only had to wait a couple minutes but no one wanted to get on the bus first.  I wanted my sister to, she wanted me to and D was perfectly fine letting us fight it out. HAHA

!  

We get off the bus and we made it to Times Square!  Here we go!!!

We walked around for several blocks and made our way into Central Park because I am part mom (without any kids) I lugged around with me 3 bottles of water and 3 baggies of homemade trail mix.  Since it was killing my shoulder to carry all this crap, I decided it was a good time for everyone to get a little snack and some water.  It was a hit! After we had recharged a little we headed over to 5th Ave!

So we made it to Tiffany’s and the stairway as you can see is a bit under construction…..

However the bathroom was beautiful and I thought we should capture the moment with a pic!  Looking good girls!!

After we stopped off af Tif’s we decided to head over to FENDI because if we are dreaming, we might as well dream big!!

There is a beautiful church behind FENDI!

We made it in front of Rockefeller Center and my sister was not feeling well about herself so she decided to place me in front of her so I looked like the fat one.  Here we are laughing about what she is trying to accomplish!

We got some food, did some more walking, grabbed some GELATO (SOOO GOOD) and ended our night in front of the Iron building, were some creepy guy took our pic for us.  He asked me how old I was, I told him, then he asked what we were doing for the rest of the night.  I responded with “Meeting up with my husband” and he said oh, I am too old for you anyway, but how old is your husband.  I said “He is 28” and this guy said, Oh he is too young for me too.. WHAT?!  WHAT just happened?!!

So we got some good laughs and made it back to the bus station and Trent picked us up so we could rest up for another fun day!

Oh my gosh, so while at home we were some busy bees!   We got there the day before July 4th.  We got up had our coffee on the porch in the back yard and the family started to arrive. 

Image

In case you were wondering. Grandma made it!  It was a bit hot out for her, so she did not hang outside long, but she still showed up and we had some laughs.  We tried to play a game, but no one was good at it… so we stopped and all went swimming instead.

Later in the day Trent said he wanted a fire for the smell.  Now I will tell you right now that it was already 97 degrees out. Image

Here is a pic of him creating that fire.  Notice no one is sitting under the canopy because the heat from the fire got a little out of control.  After dark dad and Trent lit off some wonderful fireworks and we had a good time just chillen in the backyard.  The next day, the power went out in the whole neighborhood.  It happened at 4:30am and this was the day that mom and I had to do some cooking for their party the next day.  I prayed that God just let us have power until the party was over.  We had power and no one else in the neighborhood did!  God does do miracles people!  It was simply amazing. 

So the next day we go to my cousins house for the party. Image

Here is a pic of everyone in my family waiting for people to show up.  We sat in the shade under the tree because believe it or not, it was cooler there than in the tent. Hahaha!  After a while I got bored and started a game of horse with Trent and a couple friends. 

Image

We got creative and started taking pics of us “dunking” .  Needless to say the lowered the hoop for me. Just look at that great form!!

Next day the power went out, for a full 24 hours. So we took to Bob Evans for some food. 

Image

Mom and Dad waitin for the food to come. YUMMM. Pancakes from Bob’s are delish! MMm MM MM.  Later in the day we visited my other grandma and went to my favorite place Ruggero’s. I go there for a chicken salad and the bread.  Image

Yumm that bread is delish!  After we ate, we went back to grandma’s. I finished my laundry and we went to Frankenmuth to go to a music fest that they have their every Sunday night at 7:00pm.  

Image

On the way there, mom and I took a little nap.  I am laying on a pillow and my mom has perfected sleeping in the sitting position. 

Image

We are now awake and enjoying a little Frankie Valley and the four seasons.  It was actually horrible. But we still had a good time.  Because there was no reason so go home and stare at one another in the dark, we decided to grab a beer and the Frankenmuth Brewery. 

Image

Dad is telling a story and Mom is laughing hysterically.  Kind of how the whole trip was.  Just a good time all around. 

We have reached our final day and I spent it in the pool, after I helped my mom clean out her closet and dad helped dad disassemble the furniture.  Here our the last pics of me at my home. 

Image

Just look at our faces.. filled with joy and love. HAHAHA. SO funny. 

ImageHere is the real pic. Much better. 

Image

Just hanging around……

ImageThe last pic of me with my mom and dad at the house I grew up in since I was 10 😦  It is just a house but it has helped make me…… (look to the next pic)

ImageHOW FUNNY RIGHT!!!!

That is the trip though.  Nothing to exciting but as you can see, a lot of memories were made once more. Now on to the Florida house… my parents move July 25th!!!

Okay you guys. Time for me to promote some family. Now first off let me say I have only really met the kid a handful of times when I was very young.  However, he is my Aunt’s grandson and he is a good kid (from what I hear in the family).  My cousin (Johnny’s uncle) who I am close to says he is a “good egg” and I trust my cousin completely.  So please guys listen to this cd and if you like it, buy it. If you do not than you will pass.
