Happy Birthday to Me!

May 11, 2006 Hunky Boyfriend surprises me with a trip to Paris. Life is good!

June, 2006 Hunky Boyfriend and I talk about our future and talk about looking at rings. Neato!

July 13, 2006 Dinner with my girlfriends. Complain about PMS over a glass of wine, yadda yadda yadda. Chum casually mentions that I should take a pregnancy test, since PMS and early pregnancy are a lot alike. Yah, right.

Later That Evening, July 13, 2006 On the way home, decide to stop at CVS for a pregnancy test and a vitamin water.

20 Minutes Later, July 13, 2006 Stare at " + " sign. Grab purse and decide to get the digital test. Walk all over my neighborhood, all pharmacy's are out of digital test. Sweaty and a little more frazzled, end up at original CVS where I bought first test. End up with the same check out person.

Midnight, July 13, 2006 Digital pregnancy test mocks me with blank spot before the word "pregnant". Call Hunky Boyfriend who is in LA.

July 14, 2006 Leave Doctor's office with a sonogram of a blob and a prescription for vitamins.

August, 2006 Take a much needed vacation to Bermuda. While there, Hunky Boyfriend and I decide we'll get married before the baby comes. Woo hoo!

September & October, 2006 Plan a wedding.

November 17, 2006 The night before our wedding, Hunky Boyfriend proposes.

November 18, 2006 Hunky Boyfriend becomes Hotty Hubby.

November 19 - 26, 2006 Honeymoon in Italy. Take home 11 skeins of cashmere. Poor me!

December, 2006 Holidazed

January, 2007 Crack down on getting ready for baby. Order enough toilet paper, paper towels, soap and batteries to take care of an army. That "nesting" thing is nuts!

February, 2007 Decide to buy an apartment. Start losing my mind.

March 16, 2007 Welcome Anastasia to the world!

April, 2007 Get very little sleep but don't care. Yay!

May 11, 2007 Breathe. Reflect. Decide that such a big year needs a ROCKIN' CELEBRATION!

What a year! I'm sorry to have missed wishing you a happy birthday on the day itself (househunting is nuts and a huge time-suck). I think this year will be even better, though hopefully not as crazy eventful, as it sounds like you need a break :)
