Home Again & Baby Name Announcement

We are back from Brussels. It was a quick trip but not unpleasant. Especially since it included a trip to the Pizza Hut buffet AND a dinner at Chi-Chi's for fajitas. Get this, it has actually been sunny for the past TWO days! This is like Christmas coming early to Germany! When I checked my iphone weather forecast earlier today it showed sunshine the next 7 days EXCEPT for Saturday, where it is supposed to snow, AGAIN. So sick of the snow. Ready for warmer weather. My legs are so pale they are practically transparent.

While Deaner worked yesterday I was bidding on this super cute perfect baby Patagonia snow bunting.Could it get any cuter? It is also reversible and the inside is green! Love it. I ended up "winning" it for $36 which I thought was a great deal since it is originally $100. It is perfect for living in Germany in the winters and will be the perfect size for baby boy this winter.

I realized today that I haven't shared our baby's name with my blogging friends. It was pretty easy for us because we actually already had our baby names picked out whether the baby was going to be a boy or a girl. I'll keep our girl name under wraps but sometime in late August, Richard Evans Deaner, III. will be joining us. Unlike his father, he is going to go by Evans. I LOVE this name and I am already planning all the monorgrammed outfits in my mind. Obviously this is a family name, hence the III., but the name Evans has also been used several times between nephews and cousins etc and I am really excited to use it for our son. And yes, it still feels really weird to say things like "our son". Now if August can just go ahead and get here already!!

Well, that is about it for the day! Deaner is up on the roof putting together a new satellite dish that he ordered so that we can pick up English SKY TV. I have no idea what this will entail but I guess I am about to find out. Off to rotate laundry! We are half way thru the week!

Love all the items you have already acquired and I love your name. It is just precious. Can't wait to "meet" little Evans.

I wonder what your girl names are?!?! :)

Richard Evans Deaner III

There should not be a comma in III's, only for juniors. Common mistake.

Wow - the "Evans" and "Deaners" of past and present are very flattered. Can't wait to visit when Evans is born.
