Congratulations, Eliot and Nicole!

by Heather Email

Because they felt we hadn't seen enough of the world, our dear friends, Eliot and Nicole, planned to have their wedding in the Dominican Republic. So, that is where we are headed tomorrow. We will be spending five nights at an all-inclusive resort (I guess I'll be having unlimited virgin drinks). I have a huge stack of magazines to read while I lay around on a lounge chair. And, of course, there's the spa. Matt plans to try his hand at kite-surfing, which should be fun to watch.

In other news, I had my first doctor's appointment yesterday. Everything seems to be just fine. My first ultrasound is next week. I'll try to get it scanned and posted. Then, you, too, can go, "Is that the baby? What is that? Oh, I totally see it. No, I don't. I'm lying. Oh, wait - Is that it?"

Anyway, Eliot and Nicole, we love you and wish you all the best.

Yup, nothing like staying completely sober for a five-night Caribbean wedding weekend.

Well, if you don't know by now, I'm pregnant. Due on New Year's Eve. Matt and I are very excited, if a little nervous about where we are going to live. We are still in his parents' basement.

We shared the news with the world on The Ellen Degeneres Show on Friday, May 11. Ellen called my parents and helped us tell them they are going to be grandparents. It was quite the announcement. They were very surprised, as was Matt's mom when she saw the show. I hope to get some video of these moments up at some point. We got a bunch of awesome free stuff. There will be a great deal of prize tax, so we're hoping the baby comes in 2007, so we'll get a tax break.

It's just a relief right now that everyone knows and we don't have to keep any secrets anymore. As for me, I'm feeling great. No morning sickness or any unpleasant symptoms other than more zits than usual and occasional huge waves of fatigue.

Matt Got A Job

by Matt Email

Greetings all,

I have good news. I have found employment. After waiting a good long while to try to make something work out with my former employer, it was finally time to give up and start a proper job hunt. It lasted about 37 hours. Special thanks to Stacy for helping me write a really killer resume.

I will be working at The Oakhill Group right here in downtown McLean. It appears that the 6 square miles I have spent my entire life in are exerting an ever stronger influence on me after my extended absence.

We will at some point get The Globeys posted which will hopefully be good for some laughs and a fitting end to this blog.
