Bucket List

In less than twenty-four hours, I crossed off two major "to-do's" on my before-I-turn-30 bucket list.

1. Last night, I saw a Broadway musical I hadn't seen before:
WICKED!! So fun, so incredible, exceeded all expectations, worth every penny.


And now for the good stuff:

One of the top items on my "bucket list."

Get pregnant with a healthy baby.


Well, according to the ultrasound this morning, we've done just that. They said everything looks really good, the heart is functioning properly, and everything else looks normal.
BIG sigh of relief. Like, the biggest I've ever had.

Bet you're wondering if it's Pink or Blue, aren't you?

Well.....







IT'S A BOY!!!!!
we have pictures to prove it, but I didn't post them.
We're very, very happy.
I'm so grateful, so humbled, so ecstatic, and so prepared to not take a single moment for granted. Thank you so much everyone for all the prayers and faith.

Okay, yes! Wicked is the best. We saw it after we moved up here and I was completely enamored. Uh, don't read the book though. There is a lot that they didn't include in the musical. For good reason.
AND yay for a healthy baby boy! You are gonna have such a great time with him. So much happiness and love coming your way.

So excited for you! Little boys are awesome. I was surprised with one 6 years ago after losing our little baby. I am convinced that the Lord knows what we need and when we need it.
We're seeing Wicked this week too. Now I'm getting really excited for it!

I already left a comment on your facebook page, but after reading this awesome post I just have to say how much it makes my day to read great news like this. I am so thrilled for you and your husband. What a truly lovely thing to be able to cross off your bucket list. I've never seen Wicked so I have nothing to add to that. :)
