This week John and I bought a new car! Well...it's not "new"...but it's new to us! We bought a 2007 Chevy Trailblazer. We have been looking for a while at Carmax, trying to find a reliable car, with decent mileage, and a reasonable price. The first car we had transferred was an '05 Trailblazer. We weren't sold when we saw it so we kept looking. We found a good buy and had it transferred a few days later. When it got here everything looked and ran great! I'm very sad to say that we had to trade in the '99 Nissan Altima. The poor Altima had over 172,000 miles. It was a great car. But I am SO excited to have a new car that can hit 70 without shaking!!
John and I had a wonderful, relaxing beach trip last weekend. We celebrated Dylan's 3rd birthday! I can't believe he's already three! We tried to explain that he's going to have a cousin very soon. He's going to be a great big cousin!
Baby Girl Warren got another chance to swim in the ocean (which felt much like the temperature of a bath tub).
Here are some shots we got while at the beach. John's taken up photography as a hobby!
John's also decided that he can be a children's picture book author. We've been reading to our little girl almost every night. John is amazed at how...simple...these books are. He is determined to write one. :)
Baby Warren's kicks and punches continue to get bigger! John and I love to sit and watch my belly move! She's such a strong little girl. Maybe a future soccer player...volleyball...tennis...??
We're still not official with the name yet. We're leaning towards one but I'm finding it hard to commit. It's so permanent once we commit! John is SO ready to say that this is her name. I'll get there!

I had my blood sugar test this week. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I was able to eat breakfast in the morning, and the orange drink wasn't terrible. We'll find out the results in a few days. Praying I passed and everything is great!!
Baby Girl Warren continues to kick and move and punch. I am absolutely loving every moment of being pregnant. Of course, the nausea isn't fun, but with it comes a precious baby girl! What could be better?
Oh, and Nona Collins (mom) felt Baby Warren for the first time yesterday (June 8)! So fun!!
On May 29, I surprised John with a night out in Charlotte. He didn't know it until we got there, but we were celebrating our one year engagement! :) We took the Blue Line to uptown Charlotte. We got off and walked to the restaurant Cosmos and had a nice dinner. A year ago, after John proposed in a limo, Cosmos is where he had our families waiting to surprise me and celebrate with us! All the memories came back as we were having dinner. We even pointed out the table where our families were sitting. I can still see all the smiles and all the tears. It was truly a night to remember. Who knew that one year after our engagement, we'd be sitting in the same restaurant, 7 months pregnant?! It was so sweet to have our little girl with us (even if only in my belly!). :)
