An Interruption in My Scheduled Post...

Due to the fact that Princess Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge officially, is having a baby!  Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know it's "old" news by now, but it's so exciting!!!!

Source: www.People.com

(I love how People and all the other magazines can "find" the perfect pictures to show how they just knew Kate was pregnant before the announcement.  haha)
I might be a tad bit obsessed interested in the Royal Family.  I've read plenty of books about them, woke up in the middle of the night to watch the wedding, and even share the Queen's name in the form of my middle name.  (Ok, that might be an exaggeration as my grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great grandmother all had the name Elizabeth.)

Anyway, I think it's exciting!  And in light of this announcement, I'd also like to make it known that the names Elizabeth, Grace, Margaret, Caroline, Henry, and Thomas are some of my favorites.  You know, in case the Royals decide to name their child one of those names and then these classic names become the top baby names for the next ten years.  I like them pre-Royal Baby.  (And no, there's no baby talking going on in our casa.  Truth is, we did just get married and we already have two little ones and I'm not quite ready to add another sweet one to our family.  One day definitely, but not this year.)

Since I'm talking random today, I'll finish this little post with another random list.

  • I really dislike being sick.  I've felt bad for about a month and thought I was getting better last week only to wake up this weekend and yesterday feeling horrible.  Since my home remedy of Tylenol Cold and Sinus, orange juice, and sweating it out wasn't working, I decided to go to the doctor yesterday.  I've got a severe sinus infection and the medicine he gave me has me feeling a little better this morning. Good enough to go to the gym and workout, something I haven't done in three days.  
  • Boys say the funniest, craziest, almost unimaginable things. I picked up the boys after I went to the doctor yesterday and we just had the funniest conversations.  Kaden also says things that make me blush!  Oh, boys!
  • Our wedding album and K.C.'s four year book came in yesterday.  I can't wait to look at them.
  • Our elf, Cookie Pole, is back!  Sunday night, he threw down our stockings and hung from a stocking hanger and this morning, we found him sitting by the nutcrackers and our fish, Cars, on the kitchen cabinet eating animal crackers.  Do you have an elf?  Are you elaborate with it? Neither KT nor I like big messes, so we just can't do anything like snow angels with sugar or flour on the cabinet or toothpaste squeezed all over the bathroom.  We stick to tamer things.

Kate will no doubt be one gorgeous pregnant woman in her designer maternity duds! I also love classic baby names - you are so right that they will be all the rage (because you KNOW Wills and Kate will go with classic!) and then everyone will go with classic names! Ugh!

I seriously love Kate and I can't wait to see her outfits during her pregnancy. I want to move to England just so my son can have a British accent. HA!

I LOVE that she is pregnant. I was up nursing Luke when they got married (Luke was barely 2 weeks old) so I kind of love all things royal now! Thanks for linking up!

I was definitely overly excited about the baby news! I can't wait to see her stylish maternity outfits, it's definitely going to make me want baby #2 seeing her cuteness!

I've been sick on and off for a month now, it's not fun! Hope you feel better soon! Thanks for linking up!
