Happy Meal = Happy Mel

Ok..first of all I'm overwhelmed by the amount of cute baby pictures that I've seen on friends blogs today! Kick starts the baby fever in me. If you want to know who I'm referring to check out Andrea and Jenny. They have absolutley adorable children!

I just finished eating a McDonald's Happy Meal and I have to say I'm feeling pretty happy. The toy was crap though, that was the only downfall. (Yes I do eat Happy Meals and I'm 24) Anyway, today has been pretty good so far. My morning started out excellent because while weighing myself I noticed the scale had moved in the downward direction a few notches. I'm always very pleased when that happens!

Sean and I were talking this morning about us going to Houston this weekend with some friends of ours to see the Astros/Red Sox game. He told me he told his friend we should leave early so we can go do something I enjoy like a museum. My heart fluttered a bit when he told me that. Sometimes he really suprises me with just how much he thinks about my needs too. It gave me that giddy, school-girl feeling! I think instead of a museum I want to go to this massive flea market that they have close to Houston. It's 105 acres of vendors/stalls and I can't think of anything I'd rather do then go bargain shopping. It's like one huge garage sale! I'm already thinking of all the cool things I might find.

Speaking of Sean and his sweetness, I came home from work yesterday to find he had cleaned the kitchen, unloaded and then loaded back the dishwasher and had started dinner. Grilled fish, with veggies and rice. We'd had a small disagreement the other day about him helping out more and so I was glad that our conversation had done some good. I'll be the first to admit that marriage can sometimes be a bit of work, but it's always worth it to me.

Only 9 days until our one year anniversary! Pretty good, considering a lot of people didn't think we would make it this far.

Glad you're having a good day after that Happy Meal! Baby Fever is always hitting me! If it wasn't for this upcoming deployment we'd already have a bun in the oven! We both want kids so bad! E says I have Babar! He says when I see cute kids a little radar comes out of my head and beeps in the direction of the kids! haha.

Also I feel ya on the helping out more around the house. Once I find a job which I hope is real soon he'll need to put in a little bit more help- which I completely understand right now he's real busy and I'm the one sitting around the house. He's usually pretty good though compared to other guys! So I guess I can't complain too much!

I live in Houston and my husband is in 3/89 CAV deployed out of Ft. Polk right now. Anyways, Houston is hosting all the impressionist art from the musee d'orsey in paris as well as the van gogh museum in amsterdam. You should try and check it out. I think they call it the "impressionism tour" or something like that.

That flea market thing sounds incredible. I would LOVE to got o something like that! I am a bargain shopper from WAY back :)

Someone told Daniel and I once that to cure baby fever, one should get a puppy. We got a cat... apparently - three children later - a cat doesn't have quite the same effect :)

*R* is a HUGE fan, and it's an early birthday/6 months home from Iraq present.

yeah for the scale going down!

if you ever want the cure to baby fever, I can send you a very active 18mth old and 3 year old! I'm hurt my kids were named as cuties as well (just teasing I swear)

Baby fever is a bitch, even I have it and I know how much work they are. Enjoy being a couple and when the time seems kinda right (its never 100%) take the plunge. Its a great experience but it really does change your life forever.
