Wow! So many things have happened in the last I-don't-know how many months, I don't know where to start!
I am hoping that now I will have time to post more scrappy things.. as I have a lot of exciting things to start scrapping..
In a nutshell...
Andre and I broke up in June. It was pretty much a mutual thing.. He didn't want to move that far from his family, and I didn't want to move that far from mine. We are still friends, and usually play "catch up" once a week or so :)
I then was planning on moving back to MN, as I wanted to have more time with Lilly. Well.. in the 2 months that I was there, I had seen her about as much as I did when I was in IA. Her Dad had many different things going on with her, including a 2 week road trip to California, and a week in Wisconsin, that I only got to see her about 4 times (every other weekend, since I was working during the days) I also was making about half a third of what I did in Iowa, which with child support, insurance and taxes I would end up with less than $100 each week... so I explained that to my ex husband, and he said that he understood if I needed to move back to Iowa..
2 weeks before my move, I started dating Tom.. We've know eachother for over 5 years, and finally thought about the what-ifs and such.. (and looking back, we wished we would have hooked up months ago!)
All my weekends off were spent in IA when Lilly was with her brother and sister, and Tom would come up to MN on the weekends that I had Lilly. Lilly and I went to IA for a weekend together as well.. She LOVES him!
On Aug. 21, I found out that Tom and I are expecting :) It was then that I decided to move back to IA, and in with Tom. "Baby H" is due May 3rd, and all the kids are super excited to meet their little brother or sister. (this has not been posted on FB yet.. Most of my family still doesn't know..)

I am sure that I will have tons of REAL posts from now on, as not only does Lilly like to help with the crafting, but Tom's two daughters love to do it too.
