Mustache Movember...

I stumbled across these amazing little pacifiers on Pinterest...and boy, they are right up my alley! Those of you who know Jacob and I know that our family has a weird obsession with mustaches. These pacifiers will be just the thing for our quirky little family. I might also add that my baby will be wearing these no matter the gender!

Quick Update 1.0

A lot has happened over the past couple of weeks.

First of all, I am 16 weeks now! It just blows my mind how quickly the time has flown by. On Thanksgiving morning, I felt the baby kick for the first time! It was actually quite a jolt and kind of scared me at first, but I have gotten used to it since then. I know it is still a bit early, but I didn't have too much padding on my stomach to begin with so I'm feeling it early (no complaints here).

In other news, I have had some really icky health stuff going on. My blood pressure has been ridiculously high and I was placed on Propanalol on Monday by my doctor. If my blood pressure is not down by this coming Monday, she wants to put me on complete bed rest... EEK! This week called for a lot of relaxation and dealing with the icky symptoms of the medication. I am hoping and praying that by Monday my symptoms will start going away, because this girl would not be a happy camper on bed rest! On top of the horrible head aches, the severe cramps, and spotting, I would say this has been quite the interesting pregnancy.

On top of all this, I learned that if you have high blood pressure throughout the entire pregnancy, it is not likely you will be able to deliver vaginally. With Pre Eclampsia, C-Sections are very common because the mom's blood pressure is likely to raise even more during labor. This was very sad news for me, because I have really been looking forward to a completely natural birth. I shed a few quick tears over this one. I guess it's just all the more reason to make sure I take care of my body and get better soon!

My Hubby has been quite amazing throughout this whole thing. I just can't believe how supportive he is...and he has been so willing to take on extra tasks around the house just so I can get more rest and sleep. He makes sure to always look out for, making sure I am eating enough, drinking enough water, and taking relaxing baths. What a sweetheart!

I have still only gained 4 pounds. I was a little bit nervous about this and asked my doctor how much most women gain by 16 weeks (I was reading somewhere that most women are in maternity clothes by 14 weeks--not me!). She said I have nothing to worry about and that people's bodies change at completely different rates in completely different ways. However, it is about that time for me to start gaining 1 pound a week. I am making sure I eat healthy, protein-filled foods every two or three hours, and have even started throwing in a little snack before bed.

That's my update for now. Our anatomy scan is set for December 5th...I can't wait to find out what we are having!

Tuesday, November 15, 2011


After my last post, I figured everyone might want a little bit of a pick-me-up! I have been poking around my favorite site ever (pinterest) and found some pictures of some adorable little ones. I would be happy if my babies looked anything like this. Enjoy!!

Hormonal Pregnant Lady

People always told me to beware of the "hormones" during pregnancy. They told me that I would be on an emotional roller coaster, and that Jacob would be in for the ride of his life! Boy, I was not expecting those people to be SO right. My emotions lately have been absolutely bizarre--feelings I didn't even know existed!

I feel bad for Jacob, because I honestly don't know if he knows how to handle them. Unfortunately for him, he is probably the only person I really share my feelings with, so he sort of gets dumped on in a sense. I am lucky to have a very patient husband, but I am sure he is still confused and probably annoyed.

I feel confused too...but I think that is just one of the MANY emotions I have been experiencing lately. The past couple days have been really hard, probably for both of us. I don't really know how to what to do with these emotions, or in what pocket of my brain to place them. They make me feel sad and overwhelmed.

Part of the mega multitude of wacky emotions is stress. This has been an absolutely crazy couple of months for me. I am trying to juggle managing a coffee shop full time, going to school full time in my final semester, participating in an internship, and being a part of my church's worship team. On top of that, I still need to be a good wife and a good mommy to the baby inside of me. It is harder than I ever thought it would be, and it is even harder to look after my health. My husband keeps telling me I need to let something go, but I feel that the commitments have already made and it is too late for me to back out.

I am not writing for a pity party...I am fully confident that I have a great support system. My husband is my rock, BOTH of our families are amazing, and I have some great friends who I know would always be there for me. It's just been a hard couple weeks. I know it's all part of the process, and I guess that's why I am sharing it on my blog. It's a part of the journey I am on. Thanks for reading. :)

2nd Trimester Love

I think I am falling in love with this baby....It's about time!
My hubby and I have ALWAYS been excited, but it is hard to feel love for something that doesn't really seem to exist yet. Now that my bump is showing more and more now, and that our ultrasound pictures show what looks like a REAL BABY, I can't help but love the little human growing inside of me. I have even caught myself affectionately rubbing my tummy lately--something I swore I would never do!

I also have been reading up a storm...I can't get enough pregnancy information inside my brain! I have always been a big reader and have a rather [unhealthy] habit of collecting lots and lots of books. Reading also helps me love my baby more and more. For example, I just found out that our baby already has his or her fingerprints! Not even 14 weeks along yet, and the little baby has something that sets it apart from every other baby out there... NEAT! Our baby is also now the size of a clenched fist... as I look down at my own clenched fist, I can't help but think how big that is. That thing is inside of me?????

I know this isn't the longest or most exciting update, but it's all I have for now! Big and exciting post coming tomorrow! :)

Things They are 'a Changin'...

What an incredible journey this has been! I can't believe it is time to enter into the second trimester...I swear it has been a whirlwind!
On Monday we had our 12 week ultrasound and we were both speechless with what we saw. :) My mom came with us, and she was thrilled to see baby Sipes wiggling around as well. His or her profile is just so perfect, and I couldn't help but tear up when saw it was sucking its thumb! How precious! :)

Our baby has been doing a ton of growing. He or she can now open and its fingers and toes, and has the ability to suck on its fist or fingers. He or she is now around 3 inches in length, around the size of a lemon! I can't believe that at our first ultrasound they said our baby was the size of a grain of rice! :)

A lot of changes have been going on in my body too. It has been so magical to watch my body transform, making room for the healthy, growing baby inside of me. One funny thing is that my belly button is already so tight and hard, I swear it is going to pop out any second now! I have still only gained 4 pounds, but it is definitely all in my tummy. :)

Jacob and I went to a Halloween party this weekend and it was so crazy seeing everyone all dressed up! Some people really go all out for Halloween, and I can't help but get a kick out of all the crazy costumes. He was a "sexy" fireman. He told everyone he was Mr. September 2007, it was pretty hysterical.

We are both just so happy right now. I can speak for myself and say that this is probably the happiest I have ever been in my life. I am so happy with where we are at, and can't wait to see what else God has in store for us. He seems to have a sense of humor sometimes..

Talk to you all later!

Most Loved Baby Items: Part B

So I have continued on my researching spree (surprisingly I have found time for it in between working, school work, and freelance writing jobs) and found more great items for you guys. I can't believe how pricey some of these items are! There seems to me to be this sort of trend out there where moms feel they need to buy the most expensive, European version of everything. I think the jury is still out on whether or not the Europeans actually make better, safer baby items, but at least they're trendy.
Without further 'ado, enjoy!

Best Infant Car Seat:

Peg Perego Primo Viaggo SIP 30/30

I knew the Italians made great cars, but apparently they make great car seats too! This car seat has extra wide side-impact protection and extra cushion for baby around his head and body. You can buy a stroller separately that this car seat easily snaps onto. It has a lifetime warranty for parts (can't beat that).

Best Convertible Car Seat:

Britax Roundabout 50 Classic

This is the least expensive Britax car seat out there, but was listed in's "Best car seats under $200." This car seat gives you all the loved and desired Britax features, but without the cost! It fits babies and toddlers from 5 to 100 lbs. Some users said that it is a bit bulky and hard for people with small cars, but it is easy to install and has a great feature that disables any straps from twisting.

Best Baby Bouncer:

Baby Einstein Musical Motion Bouncer

I am telling you, people can't live without the Baby Einstein Jumperoo! It is recommended for babies age 4 months and up and really helps them develop strength and motor skills. One mom said that her baby plays so hard in this thing that she will fall asleep in it! This jumper is also collapsible so you can transport it or move it from room to room.

Best Stroller:

UppaBaby Vista

This is a European style stroller with a European style price tag! Moms can't stop raving about how easy to use and lightweight this stroller is, but unfortunately I don't think I am convinced. At $649.99, it's a bit too steep for my pocketbook. This stroller is great for walking, jogging, and pulling out of the car and putting together with one hand (yes, it's THAT easy to use). You can sometimes find it for sale on certain websites for around $500.00.


50 Rules for Dads with Daughters

OK, I know I promised the second half of the Most Loved Baby Items list today, But I just cannot help but post this.

This is probably one of the most amazing things I have stumbled across on the internet. It brought a tear to my eye.

We aren't sure on the gender of our child yet, but I just have to share this with you all! Enjoy!!

1. Love her mom. Treat her mother with respect, honor, and a big heaping spoonful of public displays of affection. When she grows up, the odds are good she’ll fall in love with and marry someone who treats her much like you treated her mother. Good or bad, that’s just the way it is. I’d prefer good.

2. Always be there. Quality time doesn’t happen without quantity time. Hang out together for no other reason than just to be in each other’s presence. Be genuinely interested in the things that interest her. She needs her dad to be involved in her life at every stage. Don’t just sit idly by while she add years to her… add life to her years.

3. Save the day. She’ll grow up looking for a hero. It might as well be you. She’ll need you to come through for her over and over again throughout her life. Rise to the occasion. Red cape and blue tights optional.

4. Savor every moment you have together. Today she’s crawling around the house in diapers, tomorrow you’re handing her the keys to the car, and before you know it, you’re walking her down the aisle. Some day soon, hanging out with her old man won’t be the bees knees anymore. Life happens pretty fast. You better cherish it while you can.

5. Pray for her. Regularly. Passionately. Continually.

6. Buy her a glove and teach her to throw a baseball. Make her proud to throw like a girl… a girl with a wicked slider.

7. She will fight with her mother. Choose sides wisely.

8. Go ahead. Buy her those pearls.

9. Of course you look silly playing peek-a-boo. You should play anyway.

10. Enjoy the wonder of bath time.

11. There will come a day when she asks for a puppy. Don’t over think it. At least one time in her life, just say, “Yes.”

12. It’s never too early to start teaching her about money. She will still probably suck you dry as a teenager… and on her wedding day.

13. Make pancakes in the shape of her age for breakfast on her birthday. In a pinch, donuts with pink sprinkles and a candle will suffice.

14. Buy her a pair of Chucks as soon as she starts walking. She won’t always want to wear matching shoes with her old man.

15. Dance with her. Start when she’s a little girl or even when she’s a baby. Don’t wait ‘til her wedding day.

16. Take her fishing. She will probably squirm more than the worm on your hook. That’s OK.

17. Learn to say no. She may pitch a fit today, but someday you’ll both be glad you stuck to your guns.

18. Tell her she’s beautiful. Say it over and over again. Someday an animated movie or “beauty” magazine will try to convince her otherwise.

19. Teach her to change a flat. A tire without air need not be a major panic inducing event in her life. She’ll still call you crying the first time it happens.

20. Take her camping. Immerse her in the great outdoors. Watch her eyes fill with wonder the first time she sees the beauty of wide open spaces. Leave the iPod at home.

21. Let her hold the wheel. She will always remember when daddy let her drive.

22. She’s as smart as any boy. Make sure she knows that.

23. When she learns to give kisses, she will want to plant them all over your face. Encourage this practice.

24. Knowing how to eat sunflower seeds correctly will not help her get into a good college. Teach her anyway.

25. Letting her ride on your shoulders is pure magic. Do it now while you have a strong back and she’s still tiny.

26. It is in her nature to make music. It’s up to you to introduce her to the joy of socks on a wooden floor.

27. If there’s a splash park near your home, take her there often. She will be drawn to the water like a duck to a puddle.

28. She will eagerly await your return home from work in the evenings. Don’t be late.

29. If her mom enrolls her in swim lessons, make sure you get in the pool too. Don’t be intimidated if there are no other dads there. It’s their loss.

30. Never miss her birthday. In ten years she won’t remember the present you gave her. She will remember if you weren’t there.

31. Teach her to roller skate. Watch her confidence soar.

32. Let her roll around in the grass. It’s good for her soul. It’s not bad for yours either.

33. Take her swimsuit shopping. Don’t be afraid to veto some of her choices, but resist the urge to buy her full-body beach pajamas.

34. Somewhere between the time she turns three and her sixth birthday, the odds are good that she will ask you to marry her. Let her down gently.

35. She’ll probably want to crawl in bed with you after a nightmare. This is a good thing.

36. Few things in life are more comforting to a crying little girl than her father’s hand. Never forget this.

37. Introduce her to the swings at your local park. She’ll squeal for you to push her higher and faster. Her definition of “higher and faster” is probably not the same as yours. Keep that in mind.

38. When she’s a bit older, your definition of higher and faster will be a lot closer to hers. When that day comes, go ahead… give it all you’ve got.

39. Holding her upside down by the legs while she giggles and screams uncontrollably is great for your biceps. WARNING: She has no concept of muscle fatigue.

40. She might ask you to buy her a pony on her birthday. Unless you live on a farm, do not buy her a pony on her birthday. It’s OK to rent one though.

41. Take it easy on the presents for her birthday and Christmas. Instead, give her the gift of experiences you can share together.

42. Let her know she can always come home. No matter what.

43. Remember, just like a butterfly, she too will spread her wings and fly some day. Enjoy her caterpillar years.

44. Write her a handwritten letter every year on her birthday. Give them to her when she goes off to college, becomes a mother herself, or when you think she needs them most.

45. Learn to trust her. Gradually give her more freedom as she gets older. She will rise to the expectations you set for her.

46. When in doubt, trust your heart. She already does.

47. When your teenage daughter is upset, learning when to engage and when to back off will add years to YOUR life. If you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

48. Ice cream covers over a multitude of sins. Know her favorite flavor.

49. This day is coming soon. There’s nothing you can do to be ready for it. The sooner you accept this fact, the easier it will be.

50. Today she’s walking down the driveway to get on the school bus. Tomorrow she’s going off to college. Don’t blink.

Here is the original post. I can't get all of his adorable pictures on here, so I hope you can still read the whole list without visual stimulation. Enjoy and apply!

Most Loved Baby Items: Part A

So I have been thinking lately that in order to make this blog uber interesting, I should make a couple posts that are applicable to more people than just myself. I know I have a rather scanty following, but I thought I would share some of the research I have been doing lately.
I have been thinking a lot recently about the baby items we will eventually need to purchase. It's been rather scary, because I have no idea which model of each item to get. What stroller is the easiest to use? Which infant carrier is the most lightweight? Is one bottle better than the next? I decided to do some research and pulled together a couple resources. This blog post will feature the results and hopefully be helpful for those of you who are expecting as well. This information was taken from consumer reviews online, American Baby Magazine, real life reviews from my real life friends,and of course all the message boards I have been scouring for advice.
This post will feature the smaller baby items (the big guys are coming next)! So, enjoy!

Best Bottle:

Born Free Baby Bottles

These bottles are BPA free, and are said to help prevent colic with their revolutionary venting system. Hardly any air gets in with the milk, making for a less gassy baby. These bottles also come with different "stages" of nipples for different age babies.

Best Soother:

I don't really know exactly what these ones are called, but I have heard everywhere that the best pacifiers are the ones given to the baby in the hospital. I have talked to lots of people who said those were the only soothers that worked for their little one. Hey, if it's free, it's for me!

Best Swaddler:

Aiden and Anais Muslin Swaddling Blankets

These blankets have won EVERYONE'S vote across the board. The blankets are light weight and great for summer as they don't make the baby too hot. They are organic, come in great colors, and are just the perfect size and shape for wrapping your baby up nice and cozy. They're a bit spendy though at $39 for a pack of three.

Best Nursing Support:

The Boppy

I know a lot of moms choose not to even use the boppy, but for those who do, it's a lifesaver! The boppy helps make breastfeeding a little bit more comfortable by providing support for both momma and baby. They're inexpensive, and you can find really cute slipcovers for them to match the baby's room or your home decor. I remember when I was younger, my little brothers and sisters would use the boppy to help them learn to sit.

Best Diapers:

Tie Between Pampers Swaddlers and Kirkland Signature Brand from Costco

American Baby Magazine found that Pampers Swaddlers were the most-loved diapers by moms across the country. They are absorbent, comfortable for baby, and had the least amount of leaks. Moms had nothing but amazing things to say about them!

However, word of mouth around my neck of the woods is that Kirkland Signature diapers are just as good as any of the other expensive brands but are much cheaper. A close friend told me that these are the only diapers that did not give her little one diaper rash. Oh ya, and did I mention that they come in a box of 1,000,000?

That's all for now, folks. Stay tuned for my next post which will include the best strollers, car-seats, baby swings and more!

It's Almost Halloweenie!

Hey ghouls and goblins, it's almost Halloween! I just can't believe how fast time goes seems like just a couple months ago I was donning this number for a killer costume party:

Quite the costume, right?
I don't know if we will be going to any sweet parties this year, we may just cozy up at home and pass out candy to the kiddos.
What are your plans for Halloween? Any costume ideas?

First Baby Item

I thought I should put down in the virtual history books that my MOM and DAD were the first people to buy a baby item for us (aka our baby). After one of our ultrasounds a couple weeks ago, we came home to a neatly wrapped package on our doorstep. Of course, I tore into it and found these two adorable little numbers waiting for me:

These things are so stinking cute and just melted my heart when I saw them. If we have a girl, I am sure she could wear the blue one, but I don't think we could put a little boy in the pink onesie (sorry PLU, no gender-bending for this family).

Since then, we have gotten an adorable baby book from Jacob's mom that I have already started filling out, a free bouncie seat from Dara (Thanks Dara!) and a changing pad.
Can't wait to find out the sex in a month or so and start building up our baby supplies!

Nursery Dreams and Baby Things

Even before Jacob and I found out we were pregnant I always was on the lookout for cute baby nursery ideas. I have become mildly obsessed with decorating (when I can afford it) and taking old, vintage pieces and either a) repurposing them or b) making them look completely different. I have done this with a couple things around our house and hope to use those same creative skills in the new baby room!
This is our inspiration picture for the nursery. The wall color and black and white accents will stay the same regardless of the baby's gender, and the pink accents in the picture will just be changed to yellow if it is a boy. Feast your eyes, my friends!

I have already bought the paint and Jacob has tested it out on the walls. So far, it looks great! I am hoping to add a vintage rocking chair and to refinish a vintage dresser (as shown in the picture) to add to the room as well. I can't wait to get cracking on this project!

Here are a couple more inspiration pictures:

I love the mismatched crib bedding in this picture. I am so not a fan of the matchy matchy nurseries... I think the bedding we choose will look something like this. I die for the homemade flag garland in the picture as well!

Here is the same wall color, but with yellow accents instead.

Did I mention that a Jenny Lind style crib like this one is absolutely ESSENTIAL for our baby room? I love that this one is cute and vintage!

Hope you all enjoyed our inspiration photos! Can't wait to post all the progress we have made in the nursery!

Baby Sipes

I made a post previously about how amazing my last ultrasound was. Although this picture does not do him/her justice in the slightest, I will at least post it so you can see the progress baby Sipes has made. This picture is very blurry, so you can't see the detailed arms, legs, and movement that I saw in the ultrasound.
Here's the little gummy bear...

10 weeks.

And We Have a Bump, Folks!

Ahhhhh, this moment is finally here! The moment I have been dreading, but secretly looking forward to in some bizarre corner of my brain. I am starting to slow, slightly.

It is enough that Hubby and I can both tell, but not enough that people would start coming up to me and rubbing my belly like Buddha (which I think I am okay with).

Here is a picture (especially for all my girlfriends spread around the country who are dying to see this, and of course my sister in London). 10 weeks 3 days.

I know that I still have a TON of growing to go, but it feels oddly GOOD to see my body changing and making room for the little one growing inside of me. As of now, I have gained 4 pounds :)

Happy Wife, Happy Life

I can't even describe how lucky I feel to be having a baby with my husband, of all the men out there. I know that may sound silly, because who else would I rather have a child with than my husband? What I mean, is that I simply to not know another man who is more amazing than my husband. He has made this entire process so easy and so stress-free.

Jacob and I are very different from each other. For those of you who know us well, you can attest to that fact. :) Jacob is clean, organized, driven, and very detail oriented. I prefer to call myself "free spirited." For the past couple weeks, Jacob has been working hard at getting our home organized; getting rid of old stuff, testing out paint colors, and making room for baby. These are all probably things that I would leave to the last minute, but Jacob has encouraged me to get my life and my things organized BEFORE we start bringing baby stuff into our home. Man, he is so helpful and SO RIGHT!

We spent yesterday evening clearing the office of old wedding decorations, my wedding dress, and my high school prom gowns (I know I am not the only one who keeps those). We now have a much more organized space for baby belongings.

Not only has he helped me become a bit more "clean," but he is all around amazing in so many other areas. May I just share with you?
-Everytime he gets in my car, he cleans it out for me.
-He brings me flowers when he comes home from work--regularly.
-He ALWAYS makes me breakfast when we have mornings off together.


Thanks for letting me boast about my amazing life partner. I am so lucky, and I can't wait to see him as a father. He is going to be incredible!

Dancing Gummy Bear

Today was an amazing day. It brought me a surprise. I love surprises.
I went to the doctor for a 10 week check-up, and was told I would only get weighed and measured, give a urine sample, and then get my vitals taken and listen to the baby's heartbeat. I was NOT expecting an ultrasound. Lo and behold, the sonographer takes me into the ultrasound room at the beginning of the appointment, and I got to get a sneak peak of our little dancing gummy bear. I could not believe the movement that was going on inside of my tummy!! It brought tears to my eyes to see arms and legs kicking all over the place and hands opening and closing. What a joy!

Up until this point, it has been hard for me to feel attached to the life growing inside of me. I mean, I have always been happy and proud, but it was hard to feel bonded to what looked like just a little blob. I felt the morning sickness and the bloating, but that was about it. Now, I feel so much different that words cannot even describe my emotions. My baby has a head, a torso, legs, arms, hands and feet! And he or she is moving them all around like crazy!

I feel so honored to be the body that is carrying and growing this child of ours. Now, I feel as though I am ready and willing to go through whatever may need to happen, because a BEAUTIFUL LIFE is going to come from it!

I am a happy Ewok Momma today. :)

10 Weeks and it Feels so Good!

Wow, I simply cannot believe I am already so close to the 2nd trimester. It is insane how quickly time can pass by. Believe it or not, I have not felt nauseated in the past couple days, praise Jesus! I went through a good two weeks of horror... and now I feel like a whole new person! I certainly don't want to jinx anything, but I feel great, as of now. In fact, I went to the gym today for the first time in four weeks. With my nausea and exhaustion, I just wasn't able to go. However, today after 30 minutes on the elliptical and 10 on the treadmill, I felt wonderful!

Tomorrow is my first doctor's appointment without an ultrasound. I am not even sure what they are going to I feel a bit apprehensive. With all of the health issues I have had going on this past year, the last thing I want to do is put my feet in some stirrups again. I sure hope they don't ask me to! It is also the first appointment Jacob won't be attending. Since there is no ultrasound, there really isn't much for him to see.

I am already having trouble fitting into my jeans and work pants. I am not really sure how soon other "pregnants" start showing, but I have definitely developed quite the baby lump. I can already feel my uterus--it is almost the size of a grapefruit! I have been wearing a lot of leggings and dresses lately, but I am sure it won't be long until I need to buy some maternity jeans and maternity yoga pants.

We have arrived!

I can't even believe that this time in my life has actually come--my husband Jacob and will shortly be entering into the world of parenthood! It is scary and so exhilarating at the same time...I don't even know if I know how to raise a nice kid! Is there a manual somewhere titled "How to make sure your child does not become a brat?" If so, I think we could use it!

Anyway, we arrived here quickly. We were married a little over six months ago on April 2, 2011. We had an amazing wedding filled with family, friends, and a ton of great laughs. It was everything we hoped for; complete with cotton candy, my dream dress, and tons of bright colors.

Here are a couple pics from our special day:

And now, after a whirlwind of amazingness, we are expecting the newest addition to our family on May 15, 2012. Ready or not, here we come!

I know that Jacob is going to be such an incredible father, and his excitement about this whole thing has made me feel so at ease and so comfortable. We are only half way through the 8th week, so I know we still have a lot of adjusting to do. However, things are looking good! I have had crazy awful morning sickness, hardly able to keep down water the past couple of days. I also have had really bad cramps if I move around too much or too fast, so I have had to nix the gym sessions as of late.
Jacob started painting the nursery the other day (an AMAZING COLOR), so I will also have to start posting progress pictures too. SO MUCH TO SHARE WITH YOU ALL! I think I am going to love this whole blogging thing...Can't wait to keep you updated--ultra sound pictures are coming soon.

What the Ewok?

Okay, many of you may be thinking "why the heck did this chick call her blog Ewok Momma?" Well, let me reassure you that I do not hope my child will look like an Ewok, nor do I consider myself an Ewok. The title came from this video I was in during college.

Surprisingly enough, the silly movie became a hit with my family and friends, and still to this day the video gets brought up and shown to others. I know it really isn't the most awesome thing in the world, but I actually got paid for it, and spent the afternoon with Billy Dee Williams! This is my claim to fame!

Anyway, I know that wasn't much of an introduction, but it will have to do for now. Can't wait to start blogging for ya'll!

P.S. enjoy the video!
