Not that anyone cares, but I can't believe I didn't put the Cheesecake Factory down for favorite restaurants! So, scratch Macaroni Grill and put Cheesecake Factory. Dulce De Leche cheesecake, mmmmmm.

I've been tagged!

8 shows I watch:
None. Really. Several years ago I decided I was too addicted to t.v. and so I slowly weaned myself off. Plus, I don't like reality shows and I don't have cable. If I had the Travel Channel, Animal Planet, and all those goodies... but wait, there's a reason I don't get them. I know my self too well! I am currently watching 24 on dvd and loving it. I am now on season 4. I still miss Arrested Development, Friends, and Alias. All of which I would still watch if they were still on...

8 favorite restaurants:
-Bangkok Cuisine
-Esparza's (in Grapevine - does that even count?!)
-Le Madeleine's
-Macaroni Grill
-Silo ( I can afford it maybe once a year...)
-Water Street Oyster Grill (Corpus)

8 things that happened today:
-slept really well (unusual)
-went to doctor
-had another good sonogram
-heard Seth sing "Joy to the World" very sweetly to everyone in the office
-was non-queasy enough to actually cook lunch - thai food
-took a great nap
-continued re-reading Breaking Dawn
-showered AND shaved (major bonus!)

8 things I look forward to:
-being finished with Christmas shopping
-making toffee and wassail for the holidays
-seeing Seth's face on Christmas morning
-really showing instead of looking "thick"
-being through with morning sickness
-reading another good book (any suggestions?)
-seeing a movie with Kyle
-going on vacation (maybe...)

8 things I wish for:
-godly children
-a long, loving marriage
-to make more close friends here this coming year
-my Kaufman friends to move here. Sarah too.
-our house in Kaufman to sell
-healthy pregnancy
-energy to keep up with my children
-cute shoes that fit my wide feet

8 people I tag:
-Kelly (she hasn't posted since June. Maybe this will guilt her into it.)

Thanks to those of you who have been praying for me today. I had my cerclage put in (they stitched my cervix shut - for those of you not familiar with it) today and all is well. I am a bit sore but not too bad. I will be on unofficial bed rest - doctor said to have a very lazy weekend and to not drive or lift the baby. This is actually the first time I have been awake for the procedure, which did not take that long. Still, since my feet were up in stirrups and there were at least five people in the room, I am glad I lost all sense of modesty after having children. Funny what seems okay and what doesn't. I will still not wear a bikini - I feel way too exposed. Today - no biggie. Go figure. Anyway, just wanted everybody to have an update. I will be able to now truly relax and enjoy the pregnancy now that I know baby isn't going anywhere!

Fun over pizza

I decided to film a "game" Friggs and his mom were playing over dinner a few weeks ago. As with many videos, by the time you grab the camera, the funniest part is over, but it was still worth posting. The game goes like this: Seth makes a silly face and noises and Mom has to copy him. We're easily amused.
