Goonie has a name, and I'm living like a refugee

I am proud to announce that Mr. Goonie finally has a name! Ladies and Gentleman, as of now, Goonie is officially "Jack Barry (last name)". Jack after my dad, and Barry after Troy's dad. We are blessed to have such awesome men in our lives to name our little guy after! We asked them both for Christmas if we could use them as a namesake, and I dare say both were quite pleased.

As of now, Troy and I are still living like refugees in his parent's house. They're absolutely amazing and so fun to hang out with, but it's time for us to have our own know since we actually do pay rent on a freaking apartment!

The city still hasn't reopened the hill to our new place, but the road is technically driveable. Our moving truck is somewhere in Portland and we'll hopefully get it Tuesday at the latest (fingers freaking crossed). Our new bed and couch are another matter...

We were at the apartment yesterday for our scheduled delivery from Macy's of our brand spanking new (and quite expensive...argh) bed and couch. The driver tried to pull in to our driveway ONCE, decided it was too hard and chose to drive away with my furniture in his truck. I was in tears because I'm so frustrated about the lack of movement with our stuff! I know stuff isn't everything, but at least with our bed, we could actually physically live in our new apartment. Please keep us in your thoughts that we'll get our stuff before this kid is born!

And on another note, Christmas was absolutely amazing. We spent the morning with Troy's family, and the afternoon at my sister's. It's so nice to be home with our family and able to enjoy the holidays with them.

I can't wait for you to get into your apartment! I can't even imagine how frustrating this is!
