We're half way there...livin' on a prayer

Excuse the Bon Jovi's stuck in my head and it seemed appropriate.

Please...don't be offended I didn't tell you sooner. We have had a rollercoaster of a pregnany so far - I will post that story at a later date. I told my Young Women today so before any comments hit my facebook - I figured I'd better announce it myself!
I'm 20 weeks today and due May 1st! I'm feeling great and it's a BOY! We have a few names in the works...which I won't post on here b/c there are way too many ppl having babies before me! (Not that I think THAT highly of my names that someone will steal know what I mean tho!)
Pics to come.

Georgia on my mind....

A year ago today we had our Penske loaded up, our snacks and Sonic in tow, as we headed back west. I've been thinking about Georgia A LOT lately, so I thought I would highlight a few "What I'm missing most" like I did awhile back about AZ when I was freezing my tail off!

Fall. As in Autumn. You know, the season that barely shows it's face here? It's cooler for sure, but that's the only indication we know it's upon us.'s 88 degrees today. Fall in Georgia is incomparable!

Dinner/Game night with our friends. We miss spending time with their cute kids, eating a fabulous meal - rarely, if ever, prepared by moi...which is why it was always delish and playing Settlers or Sequence or Speed Scrabble til late! Ok, did any of the games we play start with a letter other than "S"???

Driving in the country. I'm a city girl at heart, always have been, always will be. But every once in awhile I wish I could take that 2 min drive from my apartment where there was nothing but vast stretches of green fields and tall trees. I do not miss the roadkill tho. Ew.

Extended Hoodie season!!! I own more than the average Arizonan I think. Unless over 25 isn't alot? I always had an excuse to buy more b/c it was colder longer!

GA home architecture. If i could load one up and bring it over here on a flatbed, I'd do it right now. I can't think of seeing a single house that had an ounce of stucco on it! Love love love!!!

Southern hospitality (totally real), thick accents and having someone end your phone call with, "Have a blessed day!"

Ray Charles pretty much sums it up for me right now:

Georgia, Georgia,
The whole day through
Just an old sweet song
on my mind

I'm sayin'

A song of you
Comes as sweet and clear
As moonlight through the pines

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you

I said
, no peace I find
Just an old sweet song
on my mind

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you

No peace, no peace I find
Just this old, sweet song
on my mind

I said just an old sweet song,
Georgia on my mind

Brand New

I've finally gotten brave enough to add pics back onto my computer. The majority of these are not edited, I'll never post if I have to take the time to Piknik them!

New House

Rod picked it out all by himself - didn't he do fabulous?! These are pre-decor photos obviously.

Love my house, love the neighborhood and LOVE my ward.

New Puppy

I've literally been obsessing about getting a Great Dane for almost a year now. Rod went back and forth on it with me but I was determined! However, my wise young friend Andrew Peacock once told me, "If you keep on asking for something, you'll always get what you want." (hehe!)

Introducing - Chief Kane Crumpton
(Yes my dog has a middle name, we also went rounds with his name but that's a whole other story!)

7 weeks - 13 lbs.

11 weeks - 28 lbs.

To die for right?!

New Unions

April was wedding month
My old "236" roomie Dano Bigler married Conley Rogers. Rod and I just played on a co-ed softball league with them and it's obvious they are head over heels in love with eachother!

Square and I at the reception

My cute cousin Winnie was next - she married Chad Groscost on the 29th. They had a beautiful sealing and the rest of the wedding/reception was gorgeous as expected!

Meghan, Stoney and baby Penny looking all matchy-matchy! em

(Almost) New Bro-In-Law

Anais and Chad are getting married July 10th. Here are a few of their engagements...

And even tho these pics have some pretty amazing backgrounds - I'm still not a fan of Utah. Just saying.

I'm done for now - this made me feel somewhat caught up so I'm calling it good! Oh...and one more thing!

Is that a repeat three-peat I smell coming on???

Wipe out

Last week I looked at my external hard drive and thought it'd be a good idea to get some stuff loaded onto it. Well my computer must've heard my thoughts and decided it'd be funny to get stuck in a boot-loop, causing Rod to do a system recovery...basically all my pics, docs, and some of my programs are GONE!! Lovely. We already took it to see if the computer nerds could salvage anything and it's been overwritten!!
Welp, that's it for now - I haven't loaded any other pics on here but I'll put new ones soon of the new house!
