What's not to love?

Even though we haven't had too much going on lately, I am loving life! I'm not going to post any pictures with this one but just say what we've been up to.

First off this is Derrick's last quarter of school and we are way excited for him to graduate and start work at Microsoft! He is A LOT less busy than he was last quarter and so we have a lot more time for each other and other people. Last quarter we would do our companionship scripture reading in the car, I did almost all the chores, we didn't have as much time for our calling as ward missionaries and life was crazy. Now, Derrick has so much more time and it is wonderful!

What can be more exciting to a girl than getting married or expecting her first baby? I am loving life but I really can't wait until the baby comes. People tell me to enjoy myself now and that everything will be so different but I'm too excited! Planning baby shower stuff, getting baby things, seeing other people with their babies...I can't wait. I'm not feeling uncomfortable yet, acid reflux has gone away and Caleb is moving more than ever. We can now see him move from my stomach, not just little kicks, but actually moving...it is the coolest thing ever. We've also been lucky with Derrick's job offer because he's going to get a 4 week paid paternity leave. Can't get better than that. 2 1/2 more months to go!

10K Training
Derrick made a new year's resolution to train for and run a 10k this summer. He has a calendar printed out and on the wall of what he's supposed to do everyday. He's on his 3rd week now of training and has kept up really well with the schedule.

Salvadorian Food
Derrick and I went out with a friend from school to get some Savadorian food last week. We had pupusas and some other stuff. Really good!

Family Dinners
We are so luck to have Derrick's Aunt Mary and Uncle Mark in San Jose. We get to go over to their Sunday family dinners whenever we want and we always have a good time. We went there this last Sunday and also played a game afterwards. Going there is nice since we aren't close to either of our parent's.

I feel like I've been on a roll with music lately. I had quite a space of time where I wasn't writing anything and then all of a sudden, one day, things just started coming to me. Those are the times that make creative hobbies worth it.

In Conclusion
I am so grateful for my life. I just read my friend's blog where she wrote about things that made her happy. It touched me because it reminded me of how happy I am. I don't know why but Heavenly Father has given me more than I can ask for. Life is wonderful!
