Good movie, bad movie

First for the good movie: Star Trek. I was amazed, it wasn't at all like the TV show my dad used to watch all the time, and had the bonus of having an attractive main character! Mike had seen this already with my dad, but I hadn't, and he was very eager for me to see it after his first time going. Now we're just wondering if they're going to make a whole new series with these people.

Aaaand the bad movie, Night at the Museum 2. This was a big disappointment. We both loved the first one, but the second one was just lacking. It had some major discrepancies from the first movie and the things that were supposed to be really funny throughout the movie just really weren't that amusing to us. It certainly could have been worse, so it wasn't a total loss, and at least we waited until it was in the dollar theatre.

My oldest brother had given us the advice to see as many movies as we can before the baby comes because after it will be much harder to see any, and we'll get tired of Disney movies. It sounded like a good idea to us, plus a lot of movies had come out this summer that looked good, so we were excited to! This is a pretty good start, I think!

So, to start, here is a picture proving that I least wore the cap and gown! :)
Ok, this next part is going to be pretty much completely random. Lately, with the baby coming, I've been reminiscing about our wedding. I'm not really sure why, except probably because that was a huge milestone in my life, and right around the same date, two years later, I'll be reaching another milestone, the birth of our first baby. I am so excited for her to come, and with the approaching birth, I find myself with a lot of the same thoughts and feelings that I had two years ago when my wedding was approaching. I am so excited for this new stage, for another level of love to enter into my life, but am so scared at the same time. Before it was, "what if I'm a terrible wife... what if I'm not actually a good cook and he starves or something... what if his family hates me... what if.. what if... what if..." Now its more like "what if something goes wrong with the pregnancy or labor... what if she never sleeps... what if we don't know how to get her to stop crying..." and so on.

Anyways, I've been looking at our wedding photos this week, and I realized that since we started the blog so late, we never really put any on here. So, here are a (very) select few.

And as nervous as I am, I really am soooo excited, and I know deep down that everything will be fine, but what kind of mother would I be if I didn't worry, right? And I'm so glad that I didn't let any of the wedding nerves scare me away, because I am so glad to be married to Mike. He is a wonderful husband and friend. I love spending time with him and surprising him with things (and I love it when he surprises me with things :)) He's being remarkably patient with me through my pregnancy mood swings and cravings, which I'm very grateful for, and he's going to be a great father!
