First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes... I get to announce this again....I am pregnant!!! Yea!!!

This was a complete shock to both of us. Since Jason was in Bermuda for a big chunk of this last month, I thought there was no way we would be getting pregnant this month. Well, God proved me wrong and I found out today that I am pregnant!!!

We are so incredibly thankful to be pregnant again. It's such a bittersweet thanksgiving after having a miscarriage. I am determined this time around to have complete trust in God and know He's in control, not me!

Since I was completely shocked, I did not put the time and creativity in the revelation to Jason. I couldn't even wait until he got I asked him if he wanted any Starbucks for the afternoon. He, of course, said yes. So I picked up a coffee for him and wrote "Bun in Oven" on the cup. It took him awhile, but after I showed him the pregnancy test, he believed me!

A new drink

So I have been really craving margaritas lately, maybe because it's summer. But I knew that when I eventually get pregnant, margaritas would have to stop. So I went on a quest for a non-alcoholic margarita and I found another great drink. The name cracked me up, and since I need a laugh today, I had to pass it along. So do you know of the fruity foo-foo drink called "Sex on the Beach"...well they make a non-alcholic or virgin version of it called..
"Abstinence on the Beach"!

I thought that was pretty cute and the drink looks pretty yummy so if you're interested, check it out!

Abstinence On The Beach

1 can (12 oz. size) frozen grapefruit juice concentrate

1 can (12 oz. size) frozen cranberry juice concentrate
1/4 cup coconut milk
9 cups cold water

In a 6 quart container combine concentrated grapefruit juice, concentrated cranberry juice and water. Put 1 cup of juice and the coconut milk in food processor or blender. Blend until smooth and pour back into main juice mixture. Stir to incorporate. Chill at least 2 hours. Serve in punch bowl or pitcher.

40 days

Jason and I went to the Mark Schultz concert this weekend and had an amazing time! Mark has to be one of the most amazing songwriters ever...powerful lyrics! Maybe it's due to the fact that he is a K-state Grad...just a theory, anyway!

40 Days
By Mark Schultz

Lord, I came to the mountaintop
To be with You
I felt Your grace falling down like rain
And I was made new

But there are times like now when I'm all dried out

And it's like 40 days out in the desert
Feeling like I'm lost forever
And crying out for You
But in these 40 days I'm going to seek You
With my heart because I believe You
Have brought me to this place
These 40 days

Lord, Your ways are not my own
But I trust You
Lord, You say, "You are not alone,
For I am with you"

But there are times like now when You can't be found

'Cause You are with me
You never leave me
Even when my world turns upside down
'Cause there are times like now when I will
Trust somehow

Well, there is a light at the end of the tunnel...I know

Yes, there is a light at then end of the tunnel...Thank You Lord!
