My baby girl is turning 1!

It doesn't seem like a year has gone by, but it sure has! My baby girl, Reagan, turns one on Wednesday the 26th, but we had her party yesterday, which is funny because my actual due date to have her was the 23rd. She just wanted to stay in there! It was a hard time for myself and my family last year because my uncle passed away the week of Thanksgiving and I prayed that I wouldn't go into labor until after his funeral and everything because I wanted to be there to support my family. I ended up going into labor the night after his funeral and I had Reagan the next morning. She was a wonderful blessing to our whole family, after an incredibly hard week, she was there to put a smile on everyone's faces! She's been the highlight of my life this past year and I'm sure from here it only gets better! I couldn't have asked for a sweeter baby girl! I'm so thankful for her! Here are some photos from her first birthday party.

I feel like I've neglected my blog! Don't worry, I haven't! I've just been incredibly busy! Let me update on my life...

A few weeks ago I posted a blog about my husband being gone and my depression. That weekend, my husband came home and surprised me! I was waiting for him to call me on his lunch break and at that time, he showd up knocking on the door! It was the best surprise! He got to stay home and work around here for about 2 weeks, and just this past Sunday, he left again for his next job destination. The good thing is that he's only 4 hours away now, so hopefully he will come home on the weekends, or at least every other weekend.

Along the lines of my busy life, I have had computer troubles! Let me start by saying that I HATE Windows Vista!!! Apparently I let it install an update which had something to do with deleting spyware and stuff, well, that update caused me to not be able to run pretty much anything on my computer besides Internet Explorer, how convenient! So this week I went ahead and backed up everything and did a clean sweep on my computer. So I'm still working on putting everything back onto my computer.... it's a long process!

As for my internet life, I'm working on some cool stuff! First, I'm working on a new layout for this blog. I want to design something that describes me. I got some digital elements and I've been working on something, so stay tuned for that! Also, I'm working on a blog for couponing and deals! I have found so many useful resources and also have found such great deals and I love to share them! So if you're a fan of finding deals (especially this time of year!), make sure you stay tuned for Creative Couponing 101! Hopefully it will be up soon!

For now, check out these sweet pictures of my little Reagan. We took her for Halloween and Birthday photos and here are a few of them, I think they turned out great!
