I finally uploaded some pictures and wanted to share.

This is my dad and I at the game on Sunday :)

And since I've gotten a couple *love* letters about my lack of belly pictures, in honor of halloween I will scare you all ;)

Congratulations to the Rockies :)

I know the World Series didn't go quite like we hoped, but I am still so proud of them winning the pennant and the absolutely amazing streak that had this post season. Good job guys, I can't wait to watch you play next year.
My dad and I went to the game on Sunday with our good friends Dan and Aaron. It was awesome. The atmosphere was so fun, until we started rallying in the 8th inning and the family behind us got mad at us for standing up. Then the dad started calling my dad and Aaron assholes because they wouldn't sit down, but they were Sox fans so we really didn't care. Then the mom said "but I'm a Rockies fan, won't you sit down for me". Lady, if you were a Rockies fan, you would be on your feet cheering for your team like the rest of the stadium. Give me the break, there were 9 outs left in the WS and they actually want us to sit down? They would not drop it either, it was super annoying. I have pictures of my dad and I, but alas I forgot my camera cord, again!!!
Saturday night I watched the game with the girls and Nick... it was fun until our night was ruined by some lame ass couple at the bar. See Drea's blog for part of the story and super cute pictures http://themaidenmetallurgist.blogspot.com/2007/10/brunette-barbie.html

The house is coming along. Our goal is to have it on the market by 11/10 and we're making pretty good progress!!

So Jamie is gone...

and my midwife has *ordered* me to stay off my feet, so I now spend my nights on the couch reading and watching TV. I don't have a lot of human contact in the evening, so I figure I'll use my handy blog to feel like I'm communicating with someone :)
Last night I went to the grocery store... woo hoo!! It's kind of a hard trip for me these days because food isn't really my BFF anymore. I eat, because I know I have to, but I don't *crave* food, which really is quite sad. So my trips to the store consist of me wandering aimlessly around the store trying to find SOMETHING that sounds good to me. Last night it was celery, yogurt smoothies, goldfish, cottage cheese (I made myself, but it doesn't actually appeal to me), sour cream, bread and some Clif bars. Not very exciting, but I tried to stay healthy. I took a picture of how pathetic my cart looked, but I don't have my download cord with me. The other annoying thing about food is that I need to eat every hour or two and I don't like to eat the same thing over and over again... so now I'm forced to eat 8-12 different things over the course of the day and that gets really old. If I could sit at home all day and cook, I could handle it, but work makes it hard :)
I started reading a new book last night by one of my favorite authors; North River by Pete Hamill, so far it's pretty good, but I HIGHLY recommend his books Forever and Snow in August. They are both phenomenal books and Hamill is an amazing author.
And lastly GO ROCKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let's show those Sox that we aren't just a nobody team from a podunk town!!

Quick Weekend!

Why do the weekends always pass so quickly? We spent most of ours preparing to put our house on the market. I was planning some *quick* packing and organizing, but so far we have about 8 bags of clothes and as many boxes and we're only about half way through... it's not such a quick process I guess :( And with Jamie busy with the World Series for at least the next week, it's up to me to get this all done. So if anyone wants to buy an adorable townhouse before we get this done, I'll give them a deal ;)
I did manage to have a great dinner at Duo in the Highlands... great food (I had a beet salad with goat cheese and gnocchi with exotic mushrooms and parmesan cheese), but we were a little put off by the hostess. A couple member of our group were 7 minutes late and as she was getting ready to seat us (she wouldn't seat us until everyone was there), she said "just to let you know, we have another reservation at 8:15, so you'll need to be done by then"... um, our reservation was at 6 and we were done in PLENTY of time, but we thought it was a bit rude. Oh well, I'd eat there again :)

Here are some pictures Jamie took from the celebration on Monday night. Luckily he entered the clubhouse in full rain gear (including his camera) so he didn't get *too* drenched :)

We have news!!!!

That's right, we finally have the news all of you have been pressuring us for... I'm pregnant!!!

I'm 8 weeks along and we heard the heartbeat last week and things look really good. I'm due May 26th and we're so excited :)

In other exciting news, THE ROCKIES ARE GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES!! How awesome is that? I haven't seen much of Jamie lately as he's been travelling with the team and at all the games, but it's worth it for him to experience such a once in a lifetime opportunity!

I hope all is well with each of you, please check back and I'll try to keep the blog updated as things happen.... but for now I'll leave you with baby Schwab's first picture :)

We've given into the peer pressure...

and started a blog :) We thought it might help our friends and families keep track of our crazy life. Enjoy!
