everyday life now in the 3rd trimester

-all i want is lucky charms and/or cheese. not together ever but i can not get enough of either food group

-if i start crying i can not pull it together to stop.

-if i sit too long my back starts to kill me. {which is what i do all day in therapy with my kids} the only remedy i have found is laying down on our wood floors stretching.

-i can not reach my toes

-hazel has hiccups every night. for at lest 15 min. i love every second of it.

-this sounds crazy but every time i get emotional, mad, sad, happy, or angry {which is daily} our puppy sophie does not leave my side.

-sleeping has been terrible. i can only sleep on my left side with out all of my limbs falling asleep. i surround myself with 6 different pillows and have hit clay every night for the last 2 weeks. i promise its not purposeful.

-i asked my dad to make me a shelf that works as a sofa table behind our couch. it is much easier to reach behind me to put a drink down than it is to reach forward to the coffee table. thanks daddy!

-i'm terrified to go into labor. i'm clearly weeks away from that but in the meantime i have become addicted to baby story/bringing baby home...i have convinced myself that if i see enough deliveries of all kinds whatever happens to me won't be that crazy.

-clay is super sweet and sensitive to me. i don't think i could handle being around me through all of my ups and downs.

pretend maternity wear

i've complained before about maternity clothes being drab and lame. my friend and i were talking about it the other day. at some point in their lives most women find themselves in need of maternity clothes, right? and they are for sure in need of clothes for at least 4 or more months...why not make some cuter looking clothes? i mean i know you get huge no need to draw more attention, but even large and in charge looking can be fun right?

so here are my pretend maternity clothes from lets say these are all larges {or extra larges} and are not super pricey...

see just a change in the neckline makes it a little more fun

i could use either of these for a shower or something

baby bump at 28 weeks

i know i am going to kick my self when our sweet baby girl gets here and i have hardly taken any baby bump pics. i know i need to step it up. so here is hoping i am better at documenting this last trimester. {and also so my dear friend lizzie doesn't take my head off for not sharing pictures more, love you sweet liz!} b/c yes i am in my last trimester. eeek!

me at 18 weeks

me with wet hair at 28 weeks!

on another pregnancy note..i failed that glucose test last week so i am having to go in this week for the 3 hour test and drinking double the amount of sugar. i'm a little nervous seeing as last time when i was drinking the stuff i gagged most of the way through it. so if you think about it please pray for me {and hazel} that we make it through the test and pass it


trying to bring back life to this blog as basically since i have been pregnant i have been pretty MIA. so here is some proof that we are here and kicking and enjoying the freedom we have before our sweet bundle of joy comes to welcome us.

check out that ranger shirt wes has on...i think the hand looks farely creepy...but rangers and the world series is pretty great. esp for my dear hubby who has been a long standing fan with little reward.

i think he is pretty cute

as many of you know i had/have an obsession with saved by the bell. my freshman year of college i spent many an afternoon doing online saved by the bell trivia. yes i admit it. maybe it was a little much....but it was so great. specifically kelly. i mean what girl growing up didn't want to be her? so yes i did. you can imagine my excitement when i realized there was life to tiffani thiessen after sbtb...

8 questions

sweet maggie, at The Walton's tagged me for 8 questions :) you must go to her blog and see all her talent. she was even posted about at Young House Love for all of her and husband's endeavors. i mean she is totally legit!
so here are the 8 questions:

1) If you could go on vacation anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Clay and i love to day dream. so this is a question we like to bounce around...but we both haven't been over seas much but i have had this weird obsession with south america. it has always intrigued me. so specifically Argentina.

2) are you a morning person or evening person?

most def an evening person. my husband rises with the sun and loves to bug me in the is not pleasant ;)

3) if you could have any job in the world, regardless of how much money made, what would it be?

hmm this is a good question for me, i would really like some sort of teaching...but i am really eager to learn more of the decorating world, not at all on my own though...and then as the days are getting closer and closer i'm getting super eager to be a mom :)

4) how many kids do you want to have and do you have a preference on gender?

in college i would have said a bus load...not a lot has changed since then. i come from a big family and love it :) i would say prob about 5. my husband would prob prefer a few less. i guess we will just take this one first and go from there.

5) If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

maybe not be such a reactor. i tend to not think things through and just say my initial reaction, which in some cases is good. however my husband loves to tease me and say outlandish comments that totally get arise out of me, and if i just heard what he said i would know that is exactly what he was trying to do...

6) What is your favorite quote/bible verse?

The essence of sin is we human beings substituting ourselves for God, while the essence of salvation is God substituting himself for us...We put ourselves where only God deserves to be; God puts Himself where we deserve to be.

7) What is your single, most favorite decorative item in your house?

this changes daily for me, i change my mind often...some peacock feathers that are in a vase. i love them.

8) Chocolate or Vanilla?

vanilla, most definitely. as a child, when spanish was my first language ( i may or may not use this as my excuse) i used to think it was "vallina" and it was just misspelled on some ice cream. i was waaay too old when i learned how to really say it.
