Getting more ways than one.

So, I feel like it's been long enough that I should be writing a best of 2013 already. Hmmmm, maybe I should have thought through this blogging thing a little better...

Actually, occasionally this blog will run through my mind, and I've come to the conclusion that I need to make two changes.

1. Bigger fonts (to make it look longer :) )

2.Feel less obligated to write a lot.

So...sorry my novel readers out there. I don't think I'll be able to keep up on all that length and depth I had last time (ha!).

Well, okay. Now for the real purpose of this blog--to keep you all updated with the going-ons of the Shelleys!

(And I'm decidedly not going to even attempt to recap most of the year prior to this. Sorry guys.)

Well, the two big crazy things happening right now?

Jake and I are pregnant! We're expecting our first little future soccer stud to arrive around the 5th of April.
Whoa! Big moment :) and TERRIBLE picture.

Our little peanut at 9 weeks.
That first trimester was a doozy. Not going into the nitty gritty...let's just say I spent the days that I wasn't working, laying in bed wondering how human civilization ever continued to survive and reproduce.

However, the second trimester is pretty fantastic. I'm even beginning to forget some of the side effects of the 1st trimester. Hmmm...maybe pregnancy brain is the reason we still have humans on earth....just a thought.

So....I have to apologize. Everyone loves a good baby bump photo right? Well, here's my confession. I just took my first one today! At 16 in a half weeks. But hey, It really wasn't til last week that my bump even looked like a bump-ish.
16 1/2 weeks

Anyway, enough about me! On to my better half! My husband is amazing. Earlier this year he took the DAT (Dental Admissions Test) and did pretty good! Since then we sent out applications to a lot of different schools across the country in the hopes of getting interviews.  (It's a weird, long process--apply in June, get secondary application requests in July and August, interview requests for September through November, and then don't hear back from anyone until December.)

Anyway, Jake's hard work has been paying off--at least concerning interviews. (We're not counting our chickens before they hatch though.) These past couple months have been pretty crazy with managing school and flying Jake across the country to his interviews. We're actually pretty extremely happy that this part of the process will be over soon!!

Other than that. My birthday was amazing, thanks to my wonderful husband. Here are just a few pictures to sum-up my post.

My birthday "cake".
