Anniversary/ Ultra sound

Brian and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary at the happiest place on earth... 

Disney Land! 

We drove up to San Diego Friday morning and shopped at the outlets in Carlsbad on the way... not much luck for me there... although Brian found some much needed sandals, so he was all smiles the rest of the trip :) We woke up really early Saturday morning and drove to Anaheim. It was a pretty long drive, but totally worth it. We had tons of fun... I think our hunt for the "hidden Mickey's" consumed most of our time there though. Come to think of it, we really only rode on like 6 rides max. Doesn't sound like much, but somehow it took up a lot of time! 

For those of you who haven't heard of the Hidden Mickeys, there are hundreds, probably more like thousands, of hidden Mickey Mouse heads throughout the park. The Walt Disney "Imagineers"/ engineers concealed these designs in the attractions (rides, resort, etc.) They are in the forms of  the normal head and ears silhouette, but there are also many other forms of the Mickeys. They actually have a book at one of the stores there that reveal some of the spots where they're hidden, but Brian and i decided to make a game out of it instead! It's much more fun that way... well, the losing part kind of takes a fraction of the fun away... but it's still entertaining none the less! I think it was about 5 to 1 :) (Okay... at least one of Brians shouldn't have been counted i know for a fact! but i finally gave up and let him have it) Anyway, it was tons of fun! 

Am i dumb for posting a hidden Mickey? It's just so you get the idea!

We already started making plans for our next Disney land trip. This is what we'll be doing differently...

1. Go when we have kids 
2. Stay at the Disney Land resort
3. Not go when it's Spring Break when everyone and their dog is there
4. Visit both parks
5. Go during a week day when it's less crowded (hopefully!)

All in all it was a fun trip and a great way to celebrate our anniversary! I can't believe it's been a year already! It's definitely been the best year of my life and i wouldn't trade it for anything :)

Here are a few pics...

This is on one of the rides. They actually let you send the picture to your email, so we snatched this one for ourselves. it's kind of funny :) And of course, notice the scores... I swear I can't win at anything!

We looked forward to this moment...

We're just THAT happy :) 

On to a little more recent update! March 17th was my first visit with my doctor... and this is what came of it...

There is a baby inside of me!

My due date is October 25th. I am so excited! I just wish it would go a little bit faster... I've decided that it's not a good idea to count down the days... at least this early on. It only goes slower! I've really felt pretty good. I haven't gotten sick which I am soooo thankful for. It seems like everyone i talk to had the worst morning sickness ever, so I'm pretty happy that i've been feeling good. The only thing that i've really had to deal with is the tiredness and having to eat every 2 hours! Really... I don't think i've ever taken more naps in my life than i have these past couple months! I feel like a slug. Other than that I'm doing great and Brian and I both couldn't be any happier!
