It is Tuesday night, the night before my 26th birthday. I am working on a musical surprise for my best friend and as I sit here and watch my amazing husband play the piano, I often wonder how I got so lucky?

I hope our baby enjoys the soothing music and is smiling within my woom. I love my life and I love our baby, and most of all, I love my musical, gorgeous husband!!

Happy Birthday Me and Sleep well my baby :)

Black and Pink

OK, so Saturday I said to myself. When are you ever not going to have a job? When are you ever going to be a semi rockstar? NEVER! accept for NOW. So I spoke to my stylist... and voile. I have black and pink hair. It works great for the summer b/c my Italian ass gets WAY to dark! Pictures of the new hair will appear after the May 5th gig! Or you could come on out and see what it looks like in person. Everyone says they like it, but who knows? They could just be saying that because my hair IS black and pink... no changing it now :) Tell me what you think when the pics are posted :)

Best Mothers Day EVER!

So, as you all know by now, Matt and I are expecting a little one. I didn't expect the reaction we got from the moms. It was so wonderful.

Matt and I found out Friday, I got blood drawn and we wanted to make sure it was true before we started telling the world. I think I took 10 pee tests :) So, we head to the gig Friday night, sick as a dog and Matt bursting at the seems to tell the whole audience. I make it through the gig... barely! I think I threw up my lunch 8 times or so... UGH!

Sat was worse! I couldn't stand, I felt like a Mac truck hit me and all I could do was sleep. I am thinking, Geez, these are only the first 3 wks, what is the rest going to be like??? But, as always, my friends were there (especially Michelle) telling me your fine, eat something, sleep it off :) So I did, and Sunday I woke up ... ready to face the parents. We knew they'd be excited, we just didn't know the ENTIRE world would know by Mon morning... hee hee!!

Sunday (Moms day) we head to Blue Mesa with our "Moms day gifts. to meet the Chamberlain's." We wrapped 2 beautiful gifts in very unassuming packaging. We sat through lunch, I barely ate a thing, and had to tell everyone I had a headache ;-) Finally... gift time. I hand my mother-in-law the gift and she opens and doesn't quite know what to make of it... I am thinking... it's a baby rattle... come on! Finally the look on her face... PRICELESS! The whole table started laughing and smiling. Everyone was thrilled.

Then we head to dinner with my parents. Now this moment, I will NEVER forget. Their having dinner, drinking wine and chatting. So I aks my mom if she wants her gift. Matt hands the gift to my mom, and she makes some comment about loving gifts in small packages. She opens the paper and starts balling! My dad didn't see it, so he had no idea. My mom can't stop crying, so finally my mom breaks from the tears and holds up the rattle. She couldn't even spit out the words. She just held it up and said we're gonna be.... grandparents. My dad turns to me with this look like... YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING. Then he starts to cry and as my mom tells the ENTIRE wait staff she is going to be a grandparent, my dad orders champagne, sprite for me :)

We couldn't have planned it any better!! The entire afternoon was spent calling, New York, Arizona, Florida, Kansas City, Virginia and Texas. Needless to say our ENTIRE family knows and we are so very excited.

Not to mention, as soon as we got home my mom got out her diamond and held it above my stomach (from an old wives tale) and if it swings back and forth it is a boy and in a circle, it is a girl. That ring swung back and forth with avengence. We are thinking we are having a boy, but I'll keep you posted!!

Thanks for all the support and prayers! We don't care about sex, we just want a healthy, happy, baby!!

Very Sad News

Hubs and I are very sad to announce that we are no longer pregnant. I guess God did not think it was the right time. We appreciate all the emails and calls and we hope that you will keep us in your thoughts and prayers. God Bless!
