Sometimes plans don't work like we expect them to. We have high hopes, and try really hard, but I think that God has something else in mind. For example, my plan was to get 100% out of debt in just a few months, save up a 3-6 month emergency fund, complete nursing school, and save up a huge down-payment for our first home. Adam and I have been so incredibly excited about this plan for a long time now and have been making some GREAT head-way. But, God threw in a little something to rock our boats...

I'm Pregnant!!!

I suppose that's not a little something, but a BIG something! We found out almost 2 weeks ago, and were in complete shock for the first few days. This was totally NOT planned....not an accident (because I don't want my kid to think it was an accident!).

So here we are, almost 2 months pregnant and I just found out!!! Ahhhhhh!!!! It's crazy, but very cool. We are trying to adjust as much as we can to this new life we are about to enter, but we still feel VERY in the dark.

Prayers are needed people! We are excited, nervous, scared, apprehensive, happy, name it. And I am just a FLOOD OF EMOTIONS :)

Signing off,
Adam, Krystle and baby Porter

Birthday Post

So, September 28th (Sunday) was my 23rd birthday! Unfortunately I didn't take a lot of pictures, but I will tell you about some of the highlights :)

My birthday started on Friday. My awesome friend Alexa made dinner for Adam and I, AND cleaned up :) Love it! Then we all hung out played games, and she made a yummy strawberry favorite! We also watched the McCain & Obama debate...which was completely frustrating...but that's another topic that I will not even go into since I love all of you and want you to continue to read my blog.

Then on Saturday, Adam and I went first thing in the morning to go buy a gun....I know...some of you may be thinking, "No way. Adam and Krystle are SOOOO not the gun-type."...But hear me when I say we are hard-core, people!! Ha ha! Just kidding :) It's mostly because we didn't feel ENTIRELY safe in the new apartments we are moving into & wanted further protection. AND it will be cool to go shooting :) And wait...let me get this right....we got a Smith & Wesson 357 Magnum Revolver. Wow...I impress myself! ok, onto the rest of the day...

After that, we went to this AWESOME little brunch place in old "snooty-town" Scottsdale, which I love! It was totally a girly place, and it was a different feel being there with Adam instead of a girl since he was making fun of it the whole time :) But very fun! Then we went to go see Ghost Town. I wasn't all that impressed, but it had it's moments. Meanwhile, the whole day Adam is saying that he has this GREAT surprise for me that he KNOWS I will love. So, all day I was asking him "Is this the part I'm going to love?!?!?!". After the movie, we were so exhausted, ya know, since were super old and not used to having that much fun in one day!, that we came home to rest for a that I write that, I feel SUPER lame for coming home.....I mean come on, I'm 23 for goodness sakes!!! After our little rest, Adam and I went to a Diamondbacks game...I was so sure that this was the surprise that he thought I would love, but it wasn't. We were walking into the stadium, and Adam said, " Ok, are you ready for the surprise?!" I said yes, and this is what the BIG surprise was.....

He said, "Well, with the tickets we bought, we get to get all the food we want during the whole game through the 7th inning!!!!!" - Bahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!

Now keep in mind, to me this was TOTAL music to my ears. And yes, I did feel like somewhat of a Fatty!!!!!....However, I am a total junk food junkie! Love it! I love candy, chips, soda, you name it...anything bad for me is what I love most. Leave it to my husband to give me such a practical surprise :)...Not a night at a 4-star hotel....not a fancy dinner out by a ALL YOU CAN EAT SPECIAL!!! I will hold onto this story forever :)

I'm soooo tired of writing now, but on Sunday we went over to my parents and spent some good quality time over there. I got really sick by the time the afternoon hit and continued my sickness through Tuesday night, but all-in-all my birthday was VERY enjoyable. Glad to be 23!!

Me playing a racing game....And I'm not sure why I look so weird...I just do.
