The facts don't "lie"

After such a sweet previous post about Derek, I am now going to exercise my full bragging rights... but really, folks... it's just the facts.

NCAA Bracket (correct picks so far):
Julie: 38/52
Derek: 29/52

Boating Safety Class (Certification Test results):
Julie: 55/60
Derek: 53/60

Our little girl is going to be sooo competitive with her daddy... :)

Ten Years Today

Ten years ago Derek and I went on our first date. I was house sitting and my best friend and I invited the two men we were interested in to dinner. We made WAY too much food. I got a bouquet of flowers. We watched a movie and I'm pretty sure Derek's arm fell asleep around my shoulders and my neck killed! Then we went to a "dance" at Ridge Point. The next ten years were packed with fun and lots of memories. Thanks for sticking with me over the decade, Honey!

A picnic on the beach

It was such a beautful weekend. Sunday afternoon we packed a picnic and went to Holland State Park. The sun was shining, it was in the 50's and there was no wind.

We walked out on snow-covered pier:

Baby Girls

Here I am at 27 weeks, the end of the 2nd trimester:

Last week Friday we headed up to see the Derek's roommate from Calvin and their new little girl. We hadn't seen their son in awhile too -- no pictures of him though because we didn't get the camera out until he was in bed. Their baby girl is so adorable. She was one week old and "wow" did it make our hearts just flutter thinking we will be holding our little girl in a few short months.

One of my Calvin housemates just had a baby girl too (same day I think!) and I'm just itching to visit them and hold their little one too. She's adorable too, see for yourself! Oh, we can't wait until June!
