He's Not Coming Home

About a week ago, we thought Mike would be coming home. Instead, his team is headed to CO. To help with that fire. I'm really starting to freak out! I'm less than a month away from my due date. And it looks like Mike won't make it home before Danny is born.

Worst of all, my in-laws can't come until July 20th. I'm praying that my boy stays put until then. And my parents are visiting my sister in GA for the long holiday weekend. An extended week. Because my sister just had my niece! Yesterday! Little Madelyn Grace is a sweety pie! I wish I could be there too.

But my parents will be coming after Danny is born. I'm so excited! Maybe they will bring my little sister and her darling family. :) But I'm still scared and nervous. We have great friends here. But it's not the same without our families. Especially Mike. I hope it all works out. Because I want Mike to be here for Danny's birth. :)

Pretty Little Liars

I'm loving this new show! I know, it's targeted to teens. But I really like it. I can't lie. And I find myself wishing the week could go by faster so I can watch the next episode. Am I nuts? It's like an inside to the "cool club." Which I wasn't a part of in high school. No matter what people say. I just wasn't' that cool.

I really like the style of the girls. I wish I was younger so I could pull off some of their fun looks. And the makeup is amazing! I just love everything about this show! Are you watching?

Nearby Fire

We have a big fire right outside the city limits. A wildfire! It's ridiculous! None of our "Hot Shot" teams are around either. Most of the ones from the southern part of our state, are up north. Fighting the big wildfire. Worst of all, this fire was started by the fire academy! Yes, they were doing training for the new recruits. I can't believe it!

Our fire department has requested that some fire fighters from AZ come. And they're on their way. With a plane too. I can't believe this! Isn't this nuts?

In other fire related news, Mike is still up north. It makes me so sad. But there's not much else I can do. Besides taking care of my little man, our pup, and the house. And of course, the little man growing in my belly!

Pearl Earrings

I'm from the south originally. LA Baton Rouge to be exact. I grew up around all these really amazing Southern women. Always wearing their pearls. And I've always wanted a pair. But the real ones are kinda pricey. So I buy mine at Claire's. 3 pairs for $6, or something like that! But I was doing some google searches, and I saw these...

They're beautiful! And over $1000 a pair. Because they're Mikimoto. We definitely can't afford those. And I really don't need some that expensive. On a recent trip to the mall, I seen some for $300. Maybe if I'm really good, I'll get a pair for our 3rd Anniversary in January!

Over a month ago, I planted some peonies. Well, the bulbs. Because they were much cheaper. Think $5 for 2 bulbs vs $25 for 1 plant. I don't know much about gardening. Our poor strawberry plants last year learned all too well!

But I thought I'd take a chance. And I planted 4 bulbs. All outside the kitchen window. I planted other kinds of bulbs around the yard. Those flowers are HUGE! Well not the flowers. But the leaves to them. The stems are starting to come out too. I think we should have flowers in no time!

My peonies are not showing any sort of sign of life. It makes me so sad. Because these are one of my favorite flowers. I found this garden forum. And it didn't help much. But it made me a little disappointed...

Look at that gorgeous flower! I just wanted a few of these. Looks like I should probably have tried them in a pot first. Oh well. What can you do now? I'm just going to keep watering them. Maybe by some miracle, they'll come to life. I hope so!

Another Fire

Mike is headed north. Remember, he's part of the "Hot Shot" team that fights wildfires. The fire house where Mike works, almost all the guys are on the team. Everyone left today. I'm sad. I'm exactly 1 month from my due date.

There is a big fire up north. I'm hoping that it isn't too bad. I really don't want Danny to be born without his daddy being here. Let's just hope that no other fires begin either. Because I'm not sure how good I'm going to handle Mike not being here for the birth of our son.
