When people think of me, it seems they imagine either faeries or witches, as is evident a la facebook - (i was tagged as being this poppy faerie...

and this disturbing witch.

In other news, we are having a BOY!!! The child shall be called James. I am currently 22 weeks (give or take) with a due date ranging from January 4 - 16. I LOVE getting chunky and my inner thighs are almost touching! Not to mention that I now have proper "melons." ;) Pregnancy was rough the first trimester during my first semester of grad school, but physically, things are much more pleasant. :) Emotionally, however... hmmm.

Our nephew Sam visited from England for 5 weeks. Nathan, Sam and Reed (father) visited 6 National Parks - Yellowstone, Tetons, Arches, Canyonlands, Bryce and Zion. I'm completely envious! Although, I did tag along to Arches to do a bit of light hiking and eating of ridiculously expensive food. I highly recommend the Desert Lounge. Okay, I know I am completely lame for what I am about to admit here but... we packed the second complimentary loaf of bread from the Desert Lounge into my purse. (hehehe). We were planning to hike to Delicate Arch at midnight but didn't. The bread stayed in my purse for a few days. I have yet to clean out that purse.

If you haven't added "A Broom With A View: Music from the Halloween Carols" to your collection for this festive Autumnal season, you must. Otherwise I will haunt your soul. Go to or simply click on the link under my "wonderful websites" heading.

Nathan is doing a bit of work teaching art/music for elementary aged school children. He's also recovering from eating Carl's Jr. everynight with Sam.

More news to come... sometime!
