Things that ROCK

I decided to make a list of things that ROCK in my life right now! It's awesome when you feel like things are just good.

1. My relationship with Adam definitely rocks. Serioulsy. I never imagined that I could ever fall more in love with him than I already was. He is so wise, talented, intellegent, driven, focused, FUNNY, clever, positive....and not to mention 1/2 of the reason that a baby girl is growing inside of me. We all better watch out once Ellie actually comes & I get to see him be a dad. I'm not sure if there is anything better in the world. And you may never hear from me again because I will be too fascinated with my husband. Sorry if that was too "lovey", but I can't help myself. He rocks.

2. My baby. She rocks even inside of my belly. I bet she is already really cool. I like to feel her moving in there, but mostly I feel like there is an alien living in my body. And that's the truth. A cute one though. Meeting her will be so amazing. Can't wait...Only 11 weeks left.

3. My midwife....also known as "Mary the Midwife". Really. You should all check her out. She just uploaded videos of herself on her website, and it's a cool sneak peak into what she is really like as you care-taker during birth. www.marythemidwife.com ....I'm serious. Do it.

4. When Adam grows out his beard, it definitely rocks. I will post many-a-pictures when that glorious day arrives-You will all agree with me.

5. When people say awesome things about your relationship with your husband. Recently when we were taking our first set of pregnancy pictures, our photographer said that she could definitely see how babies were made in our home- and that we were giving her a look into our lives and didn't even know it. That statement rocked. I like it when people can see how much fun we have together-hence the reason we make babies....and will continue to make many more.

6. When your mom looks better than you in a bathing it suit, it definitely rocks. There is no shame in that. We are going to California this weekend for my mom's 40th birthday, and she looks awesome. Really awesome. I hope to be in the shape she is in after the baby. Cross my fingers.

7. Reading blogs that are very real. Real life, real people, with raw & controversial statements, and being proud of it. That rocks. It's a rarity (did I make that word up?) these days, and I truly appreciate it when I come across one. Everyone should just say what's on their mind. Forget the fluffiness. That stuff isn't really that fun to read. I hope I'm not offending, I'm just practicing what I'm preaching right now I guess :)

8. A good lyric. Such as this one: "Love hurts, but sometimes it's a good hurt....and it feels like I'm alive". -Incubus. I like that. Again, it's real life. Sometimes those true emotions that are hard to deal with hurt, but for some reason, it feels good. It gets you out of life's routine, and into the reality that we are alive & fragile.

8 is all you people get. I'm sure there are many more things, but that's good for now. I don't want to make anyone jealous :) j/k!

Happy Monday.

Love, Krystle
