Bleh Weekend....GREAT News!

So for various reasons, my weekend was just bleh. Not horrible or bad, just bleh - ya know those weekends? But it was all made up for when (at my parent's house today for lunch) my 5 year old niece came out carrying this cake:





It says "Congrats Happy Baby." (huh?) And while many in my family inherited the blond gene, when my niece blurted out, "We're having a baby!" - we got it!

My sister is preggers!!

Aaaaah, I am so excited. Her kids (my niece and nephew) will be 6 and 4 when the baby is born (April Fool's Day is her due date!). I obviously LOVE being an aunt - even if I don't have kiddos of my own, being an aunt is such a close 2nd. Especially to the kiddos of your sisters. AND my sister is the CUTEST pregnant person ever! (And, no, Kristy - I'm not just sayin' that 'cause I know you're reading!) ;-) She is also one of those people who never, EVER complains about being pregnant. Plus, she's so dang cute!

So that just goes to show you when you're having a bad day (or weekend), there is always good news around the corner to pull you out.

Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
