I've Been Tagged...

Megan Daniel tagged me on Facebook, but since I haven't posted in awhile I thought it would be more fun to post on my blog.
25 Things About Me! Oh boy! They are random as I thought of them.

1. I legally changed my name from Elizabeth to Beth after I got married.
2. I think my Dad is the smartest man in the world. I think the way my Mom does things is the only way to do it.
3. I only buy Quilted Northern toilet paper.
4. I sleep with a white noise sound machine turned up really loud.
5. Even though my hair is half way down my back, I can dry it in 4 minutes. Don't hate me.
6. I hate nuts but love peanut butter.
7. I think Hoover is the smartest dog in the world. Ask me how she saved Ben's life a few weeks ago! She saved him from me killing him! Funny story.
8. I can't watch people brush their teeth. It makes me gag.
9. I hate folding my laundry. I dump it out on the guest room bed and pick through it til it's all gone.
10. I am going to be a Matron of Honor for the first time in June and think it's the biggest honor in the world that I was asked by my best friend who has more friends than I can count.
11. I love my dogs WAY more than I should.
12. I talk to my dogs and answer for them. We have fun conversations.
13. My favorite singer is Richard Marx. I had "Now and Forever" played at my wedding.
14. My school nickname was Beefer. Erin Keckley still calls me that.
15. I read magazines from back to front a lot b/c the good stuff is in the back.
16. I am obsessed with taking care of my face. I wear 30spf moisturizer every day. I use two kinds of salicylic acid face washes, and glycolic acid lotion every day.
17. I went through hell for my teeth to be straight. Braces twice, oral surgery, tooth in the roof of my mouth that was pulled over with a rubber band, two veneers, root canals, etc. Thanks Mom and Dad!
18. I still miss my dog Allie. I can't take her pictures down. She was so feisty.
19. I have a hard time hiding my feelings. If I don't like you, you know it. Not my best quality.
20. I love the beach and would live there if my family was there also.
21. I have a hard time taking pills.
22. I never hit my snooze button. I don't even know how long it is.
23. I love being a nurse but wish it wasn't so hard physically.
24. I love to sing but won't sing in front of people unless I'm in church.
25. I can't wait to be a mom.

My little raspberry

This is the size of our baby right now. A little raspberry. has a week to week size comparison of the baby to fruits and vegetables. It really helps put things in perspective. I finally got some Zofran and Phenergan for my nausea. The Zofran really helps at work since it doesn't make me drowsy. Last night I took a Phenergan before bed b/c I felt realy sick and slept 12 hours! It was wonderful. I'm ready to see the signs that I'm pregnant since I just feel fat right now. I'm trying to eat what I'm supposed to, but yeah right. I eat whatever is close. I go back to my doctor on the 30th for my nurse visit, and then I start my OB visits. I love Dr. Haney and don't mind a bit going to see her. She knew we had been trying for a long time and was genuinely excited to know we are pregnant. Ben refers to my belly as a "he" b/c he wants a boy really badly. He says he has so much to teach. That is true, but our baby is not going to be holding a shotgun for a long time!
Thanks to everyone for all the well wishes and congrats. We really appreciate everyone thinking of us!

Celine Dion Concert

I was fortunate to attend the Celine Dion concert on Tuesday night courtesy of my husband. He bought me the tickets for Christmas '07 because I was dying to go. His one condition was that I did NOT take him. I could take whomever I wanted as long as I did not ask him to go. Not a problem! I asked my mom because I knew she would love it. Drennon had told me she would rather "set herself on fire" than see Celine Dion, so I took that as a NO. Mom and I ate dinner at J. Alexander's with the rest of the city. We waited 40 minutes on a Tuesday night at 5:45. Everyone was going downtown. Everyone was at the concert. All I can say is that it was amazing. She sounded even better than on her CDs. Haters have to see her in concert before they can say anything bad. The lady is an entertainer. Her band and dancers were the best I've seen. I just can't say enough good things. The show was made even more entertaining by the two guys in the section next to us who knew every word to every song and even knew the dance moves. They were hilarious. There were definitely all types of people at the concert. Divas, male divas, nursing mothers and babies (on the row with us!), husbands, boyfriends, dads, moms, and daughters. I would urge anyone who gets the chance to see Celine in concert to go and not think twice. You won't regret it.
Because the tickets said no cameras, I did not take mine to the concert for fear of it being confiscated. Of course, they barely looked in my purse and everyone else had their cameras. The pics below are from the The pics don't do the concert justice. The stage was 360 degrees so there was not a bad seat in the house. Celine had six costume changes and looked amazing.
