1. This weekend we went to Wingate, saw baby Hawk ( hes doing great, along with Drew and Gina), and went to Monterrey! It was an excellent weekend. While we were in Wingate, mom-in-law, Constance, taught me a crochet pattern ( I learned how to crochet 2 years ago and have never finished a darn thing). I was so excited that I have spent almost every free minute crocheting. I have almost finished 1 pink blanket. It's pretty cute and I seem to be getting better and better as the blanket progresses.

2. Fuji Apple Chicken Salads are back at Panera Bread! Yes, they are good enough to be considered a major update in my life. They stopped serving them over the summer. I have not stepped foot into a Panera ever since, waiting for them to bring back my beloved salad. I plan to have alot of these between now and next summer, so it seems blogworthy enough to me.

3. I have become a coupon freak. For a while, I have been reading this blog-http://www.moneysavingmom.com/, but always thought using coupons was a waste of time. I decided a few weeks ago couponing was worth a try to see if we could do a better job with the grocery budget. It seems to be working, now that I am learning a system for it. It is not as time consuming as I thought. It has kinda become a fun little game to see how much money I can save at each store.

4. As you may have heard, Circuit City is going out of business. They have alot of great deals right now on cds, movies, and other great Christmas gifts. Im pretty sure I have only been to Circuit City a total of about 5 times in my life, but hey with 20-30% off, its worth a trip.

5. I GET TO SEE MY SISTER IN 11 DAYS! I AM SO EXCITED. I havent seen Emily or Russ since they moved to Indiana in the spring, so I am definitely looking forward to the visit.
6. Also, for Thanksgiving we are visiting VA to see Aaron's family and we are staying in an awesome looking house out there. Im pretty excited about that too. This is the house we are staying in-----

My Thoughts Lately...

There are babies everywhere. Everyone we know seems to be pregnant or has just had a baby. Anyone that has been married through the 2 year mark, i'm sure knows all the questions that follow.......everyone asks about babies. So when will it be your turn? and What are you waiting for?......My answers have changed throughout our marriage....Once Aaron graduates....Once we buy a house.....Once we are financially stable.....Once we enjoy some time together.......Once Aaron has a good job. All these things have happened and I have officially run out of reasons. The answer is I dont know when we will have kids....I do have baby fever with this new nephew and all the little babies around....but it is obviously not the right time yet. It will happen in God's timing and in the meantime, we are rejoicing in Him for this time without kids.

Psalms 27:14 Wait for the Lord; Be strong, and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord!

Aunt Ashley and Uncle Aaron =D

Our first nephew, Andrew Hawthorne Forsyth "Hawk", arrived last night at 11:33pm. He was 8lbs 4oz and 22 inches long. He is so cute!
The proud parents, Andrew and Regina
I just know he was looking through the glass at his fave aunt! =)

Baby Hawk!

Life is lovely...

Whats new?
* I officially voted Saturday after waiting in line at UNCC for 5 1/2 hours. Luckily the people in line next to Angelo, Kasey and I were pretty entertaining.
* I got new glasses. They are quite cute if I do say so myself. I will try to post a pic of them sometime. They have little pink stripes on the sides (of course).
* No nephew Hawk yet....Regina was due the 30th, but still nothing. She will be induced tomorrow so I guess there will be pics of him soon! =)
* I joined Peak Fitness....after my not so great hike up to Table Rock, I decided walking around the block and "ellipticalling" was not enough, plus Peak fitness was running a special where it averaged out to paying $12 a month. You cant beat that. So if anyone goes to Peak, I would love a workout buddy!
* My hours changed again with Great Direct, so I am working very little for them and doing more childcare.
hmmm, I think that is it. Nothing too exciting, but hey it is an update.

According to Aaron, there is nothing new going on with him...=D
