It's official....I'm an aunt...again

I am happy to announce the birth of my adorable nephew.  I hadn't mentioned this baby before, because he wasn't officially ours until 48 hours after his birth.  My brother and his wife have excitedly waited the arrival of this little guy, so they could adopt him.  I can't go into much detail about the situation that brought him into our lives, but I can say he's healthy and precious!  He went home w/ my brother and sister in law Saturday night, and I went over there as soon as I could Sunday. :)  He's 5 lbs. and 19 inches.  When we left Farmboy's first words to me were, ya know... we've got to wait a year or two right?  Yes dear, I know we have to wait, but a girl can dream!  Now I need to get busy and throw a baby shower!!  Any good ideas?  All you moms, let me know what was something that you really enjoyed or appreciated at your baby showers??

Internet deprived :(

So we went shopping for internet a week ago, and turns out there are zero good options for our area. :(  We live too far out of town.  We can either pay way too much money for satellite internet including a $400 install cost.  This comes with a sweet benefit of download and upload limits, so I can surf in fear of extra charges.  Needless to say we didn't go with that option.  There's a new company in town and they're just barely out of our area, so we're hoping they'll expand our way quickly.  While we wait I feel very deprived.  I miss reading everyone's blogs.  I've also been threatened by Glam Newlywed that if she doesn't see some wedding pics, she plans on injuring me.  So my plan is to come to work with Farmboy or go to my parents and steal internet from others.  I do plan on posting wedding pictures next time I blog, but today I'm blogging from FB's work computer.  

In other news we booked our honeymoon today.  We're going to Eureka Springs, Arkansas.  We don't have much planned other than relaxing.  FB did book a carriage ride, which I'm really looking forward to.  We're going to leave Thursday, so I'll have to tell you all about that when we get back. 

It's been storming a lot lately, and Holly's not a fan of bad weather.  The first night she peed on the floor, then pooped in the corner later that morning.  Last night we had a better night.  She woke me up twice, but at least she didn't refuse to go out in the rain this time.  That dog has gotten more spoiled now that all her toys are unpacked and we're both around more.  The month I was at summer school, FB was off.  Now he's back at work and I'm off.  When August comes and she's in her crate all day, it'll be a rude awakening for her.  Which probably means she'll make us pay in some way or another.  She is really funny outside since she's got more room to run, somehow she still finds a shady spot to wait on us.

OK I suppose this blog has gotten long enough.  I'm helping out at FB's blood drive today, so maybe I should ya know... help in some way.  Have a great weekend, hopefully I'll check in again soon.
