No cheesecake before bed

I had the craziest dream last night where I totally wailed on Shia LeBeouf because he was being a big jerk face in a department store. Then all of a sudden, he turned into a fuzzy Emile Hiersch, and then Zach Efron. And I ended up playing the pregnant high schooler on High School Musical 3. If you see me in there, that's why.

So, yesterday after church I noticed after I went to the bathroom, that my cute little Mr. Belly Button may be turning into an outie (audi, whatever you wanna call it.) I got so freakin excited and I think Derek thinks I am strange, but it's cool to me! I took some pictures, but my g's are showing and nobody should see that, but I want everyone to see! So I'll get something appropriate up there.

And also, I feel like a whale. A cute pregnant one. Dave Jolley was home this weekend and we went to grandma's to visit and they said I'm pretty big for 5 1/2 months. Which is ok. I want people to be able to tell I'm pregnant and not just kinda chubby, but if I'm big now, how much bigger am I going to get? I still have about 4 months until this boy comes! And I feel like I get bigger every week! So, picture updates will come and if I am huge, you can tell me. That's ok

Give it a rest

I'm doing the best that I can and if that's not enough for you, then I'm sorry. But I'm allowed to be selfish and I'm going to be. The most important thing to me right now is the baby inside of me, my baby (Derek) and myself.

Interesting day today...

Baby face!

Everything was normal. Went to my 20 week baby appointment. Baby's good, baby's healthy, so yay there!

I came home, did all the normal things you do. Couldn't make dinner because we're canning, so I ordered chinese. On the way there, just down the hill from my house, I was T-Boned by another driver! They were turning left, they didn't look for me and BAM! So, we were getting all that figured out. Turns out she doesn't have insurance and so her car was impounded, and I felt bad for her because she said she was on her way to pick up her kids from day care. But she also told me she had insurance. So I'm not sure exactly what is true. Anyway, while the police were getting things figured out, Derek and I were talking on the sidewalk, and I look over and I see a familiar face. I call "Anne Marie!" at her, she turns and it's her! One of my roommates from my first summer semester at BYU-I. She lives right down the street from me! She didn't remember me or recognize me, but I'm blaming that on the pregnancy (makes you scatter brained) and it's been 3 years since she's seen me. So, even though I got into an accident (there is now a large dent in Derek's drivers side backseat door) it was a blessing to run into her. She's also pregnant, but is due in December.

Awesome, awesome day!

Hello all mom's out there!

I'm still in the process of creating my baby registry. Is there anything you would suggest that I ABSOLUTELY need? I'd just like a little help. Thanks!

Trigger happy!

So, I'm pretty sure I'm turning into a crazy camera person. I think I may have overdone it, and I really hope it doesn't turn into a SSB blog, and if it does, I apologize in advance. Here's a little update for the weekend...

First we get scuzzed. I really do think Bria loves us, but this is the first reaction we get from her. At least she didn't hit me this time :)

We're just playing with the settings here. My beautiful ring, and my beautiful husband. I really am seriously so blessed though.

Bria gets a face lift. A little scary, but she really did look younger after
Snowed almost all day today. Yeah, it's October.And I finally have pictures of my belly!! Me at 20 weeks. Not too big yet, but just you wait!!

Since we are the next in the family to have a baby, there's a bit of hostility because it's automatically assumed that we're gonna up and leave after he's born. Yeah, we just bought a house six months ago and it wouldn't benefit us at all to move 5 months from now. We'd have to pay money for living in it less that 2 years. So I don't think that's gonna happen. So I don't want to feel grouched at when nothings gonna happen. Not too fond of that

This weekend was our one year anniversary!! Nothing extravagant, no big trip, but it was fun. After I woke up, we went to Great Harvest, had some delicious mazurka bars. They only have them in Layton, so after we picked them up we went over to Mom and Dad's to watch conference. And I know hanging out with your in-laws isn't exactly what you want to do on your anniversary, but it wasn't bad. We went out to Rooster's for dinner after Derek went to the Priesthood meeting, and it was really good. Thanks again for the leftover giftcard, Brandon and Marci! It served it's purpose well. Nothing very eventful, but I'm excited to save the money up and take a trip up to Eugene and my parents sometime. Makes more sense to me than going into a bunch of debt now. Although a car trip up would be a bad idea. Lots of potty stops :)
