As many of you may already know, I love the month of September.  You may be wondering why I'm blogging about something that is still 5 months away, but if you bear with me for a little while you will understand.  Promise.  There are three reasons why I love this month, and I want to share them with you.  Well, I mostly want to share one with you :)  My top three reasons are:

3.  This month marks the beginning of fall.  The leaves start to change colors and the weather starts to get cooler.  I love going on walks and hearing the crunch of leaves under my feet.  Seriously, who doesn't love the start of fall??

2.  It's my Birthday!!!  September 22nd is possibly the best day ever.  I really really love birthdays!

1.  This reason is a new one this year.  On September 14th (give or take a few days) Eric and I will become parents!  That's right, we are going to have a baby!!  That is definitely going to make this September an extra special one for the two of us.  We are super excited!  We get to find out on May 3 (our anniversary) what we are having.  How sweet is that?!  I'm so excited to see Eric as a dad.  Little kids just adore him.

Here are some pictures to prove it, minus the pregnancy test.  I will spare all of you that image:)

The night we found out I was pregnant.  Excuse the nasty face.  I just got home from working out.  

Me at 12 weeks.  I don't like being in pictures alone, hence the awkward smile!   

I was going to put a picture up from today, but I don't feel very well so I'll post a current picture later on. 

There you go.  I told you if you bore with me you'd understand why I was writing about September!

If any of you don't know who Jimmer Fredette is, then I suggest you stop living in a cave and turn on the news:)  Well, if you don't live in Utah, then watch ESPN or any other sports station.  He is one of the most, if not THE most talked about college basketball players this year and he happens to play for my Alma Mater and employer, BYU!!  Yeah he's pretty awesome.  He shoots an average 26 points per game or something like that.  He scored 52 points against New Mexico in the Mountain West Conference Tournament.  That's crazy.  He is up for the College Basketball Player of the Year.  No big deal.  Let's just say that even President Obama is a fan of him and so is most of the country.

I don't want to leave out the rest of the basketball team he plays for.  The whole team is pretty awesome.  I just might have a little crush on Jackson Emery.  Don't worry, Eric is fully aware.  He might have a crush on Jimmer and that's OK.  Haha.  They are currently playing in the NCAA Tournament and made it to the Sweet Sixteen for the first time since 1981!!  Everyone in Utah is crazy about this team right now, and you should be too.  They play Florida tonight at 5:27 MT and everyone should watch the game even if you don't like Basketball or BYU.  It's going to be great, and I REALLY hope BYU wins.  That would be awesome.

I really am not a sports blogger of any sort (obviously), but I had to give a shout out to this awesome basketball team.  I'm so excited for them.  Here's to hoping for an Elite Eight appearance.  Go Cougars!
