I can't control myself

So, I can't help buying baby clothes. I'm obsessed. I have bought a total of 39 onesies. lol My sisters and I went to the store and I almost bought everything I touched. I actually got a pretty good deal and I just get so excited when I shop for baby stuff. I promise I'll post Thanksgiving/Christmas stuff soon. I just wanted to share my current obsession. :-)

Wonderful Husband

I would truly be ungrateful if I didn't thank my wonderful husband today. You'd think that this being my fifth time taking college finals that I would know how to handle everything. Well, I'm not quite that great yet. Time has flown since Thanksgiving! I wrote about 30 pages total in the last week and a half and I had a family Christmas party to get ready for. It's just been crazy for me lately. Well, I had a final yesterday, one today, and one tomorrow. Well, Ty has been nothing but nice to me lately. I've been mean and stressed and emotional and he has handled it so well. He just lets me do what I want and I'm so grateful that he is there for me. Today he drove to Orem just to get something for my mom because I mentioned to him that she really needed it. He is so thoughtful and works so hard to provide for me. I just want him to know how amazing he is and I love him so much.

My Awesome Job

So, I work at the University as a clerk. I file for 4 hours a day pretty much. Not too exciting. And the pay isn't anything to brag about. But, my job is awesome because I work with cool people. They are fun and they make me laugh. I guess in December we do like 25 days til Christmas thing and a couple people bring treats EVERY DAY til Christmas!!! Yes, I may gain 100 pounds but it makes me excited. My desk is literally in the breakroom so I get to sit by the food all day long. I'm so glad I'm pregnant cause I have an excuse to eat a lot. Today we had amazing chocolate cake, a cheese ball and crackers, caramel candy, and yummy pumpkim cookies. job is awesome. :-)

Crazy Saturday

Saturday was very hectic for me. I had a final in the morning, then I ran to Steph's shower, then we went to the game, then I went to see Twilight with my sisters. I liked it a lot better than I thought I would. I thought I would totally hate it and wasn't expecting much so that's probably why I liked it. I don't like the actor that plays Edward though. Sorry for those of you like him! I'm not going to rub anything in but the game was very exciting to be at!

Holy War

In honor of the big game this Saturday I decided to finally post some pictures from the TCU game that was a couple weeks ago. We were down the whole game and we scored with like a minute left in the game or something. It was really exciting. The whole stadium was dressed in black so that was pretty cool. I hope I'm just as happy when the game ends on Saturday as I was for this game. I'll be a good sport no matter what. I promise. ;-)

Awesome black uniforms
Yes, he actually wore that wig. I had nothing to do with it :-)
Here's Ash and I after the game
Everyone storming the field like we just won the national championship lol
Final score of a very exciting game!

So I discovered a new obsession of mine and sadly for my husband also. Baby clothes. We went to Ross today because I am tired of having four comfortable shirts. :-) But we decided to go to the infant clothes. We picked up so much stuff. It is so addicting to pick out clothes for a little baby. So we forced ourselves to put back all the stuff except one so we picked these. It was just so exciting to pick out the clothes. It made it feel more real that she's coming. Luckily payday is this week so next time we go we can get more stuff.

Halloween Fun

I stopped at my sister's work at her party. My shirt says there's a monster inside waiting to get out. :-) I found it in the little boys section at Target. Awesome huh
This is the cake I took to my work party. It was pretty creepy huh. :-)

After work we went to Ty's nephew's first playoff game. They killed their opponent so that was fun. After that, we went to my mom's to see my nephews and niece. They looked so cute. Here is my nephew a little tired from all the sugar and fun of the day.

Collin Raye sang the national anthem

So my brother took me to the first Jazz home game of the season. It was awesome and we pulled out a win! Thanks Dave for taking me!

Major Changes

So I decided I wanted to get my hair done differently. I've been trying to grow my hair out til the baby comes. Well, I asked my sister to come with me and she talked me into getting an A-line and putting blonde in it. It's so different. It's not too drastic of an A-line but it's hard to get used to. I don't like it yet but hopefully I will soon. Hopefully you can see the change in this picture:

The other big change is my stomach. About a week and a half ago my stomach decided it wanted to grow and now I can't fit any of my clothes. It's really exciting but hard to get used to. And I swear every morning it sticks out like an inch further. Crazy! I just read today that I should gain about a pound a week for this next month. That won't be very fun but I'm glad the baby is growing! So here's my official 22 week baby bump picture :-)

Random Tag

Steph tagged me and I have to put seven random facts about me (none of these pictures are of me or are pictures I took. They are all from google images fyi...
I was born in Provo. (Disgusting I know :-)
I've never seen a moose in real life and my sister just had an awesome encounter with one.
I am a cat person but I haven't had one since I was like four or five so I barely remember it. But I've lived with five dogs since then.I went snowboarding for the first time last winter. I got air just like this picture. Okay, that's a lie but I didn't fall down too much and I actually enjoyed it.I have never seen the Pacific OceanI live with my sister-in-law. Sorry for the corny picture I couldn't find anything else to put on here
The baby is kicking me out of control while I post this. :-) This picture is a little disturbing to me though. Ha ha I wonder if it's real. I doubt it.

No I'm not serious about the last post. Wendy slept over last night and I fell asleep before her and she decided to post for me. Like I said earlier I'm not close to coming up with a name yet and although I love my sister, (except when she plays pranks on me) I won't be naming the baby after her. :-) Sorry for the confusion. Oh and to my other sisters, don't you think I would've told you first before posting it on my blog? lol

Been Thinking

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately. I'm definitely a fan of family traditions. So wouldn't it be nice to carry on my family legacy by naming my unborn daughter after a family member? Since Wendy is childless, I think I'll start with her. Wendy is such a pretty name anyway, right?

Yep, that's right. We had our ultrasound last week and our baby is a girl! We haven't decided on a name at all and probably wont for awhile cause we're so undecisive!!! We're very happy and excited!!!

The Great 8

8 Favorite t.v. shows: The Office, What Not To Wear, Jon & Kate plus 8, Friends, King of Queens, CSI (the original), The Practice, Seinfeld

8 Favorite Restaurants: Olive Garden, TGI Fridays, Ruby Tuesday, Rock Creek Pizza Co, KFC, Applebees, Burger King, Moochies

8 Things that happened yesterday: Stayed home from work, skipped class, nursed a sick hubby, drove 2 hours just to drop off salad and sour cream for a party at work I didn't attend, finally cleaned/organized our storage space, ate cereal for dinner, watched like 10 episodes of King of Queens, did laundry

8 Things to look forward too: Having our baby/being a mother, finishing school, seeing Matt when he comes home for Thanksgiving, not having to work outside the home, buying baby clothes, eating a piece of my sister-in-law's birthday cake when I get home, The Utah vs. TCU game, holiday season

8 Things I love about Fall: FOOTBALL, leaves changing colors, weather that's just chilly enough for a hoodie but not too cold, watching ESPN college game day in sweats at my mom and dad's every saturday, Halloween decorations, Thanksgiving food, snuggling in the cold, taking a drive in the mountains with my hubby.


I take a class called Sport Psychology. We go over different techniques to help athletes get over mental blocks that they have in performance. It's pretty cool. Anyway today we went over hynosis, my professor told us in advance that we'd be hypnotized and I just thought "no thanks" It sounded totally weird to me cause I always picture stage hypnotists from tv. But I learned that clinical hypnosis and stage hypnosis are totally different. It's just like any other performance enhancement technique. Anyway, we were hypnotized in class and it just felt like relaxation. It was awesome. I would really like to learn how to get better at it and maybe even use it during labor. Anyway, pretty cool. (I promise I'm not crazy :-)

Our car stereo got stolen in like June. I've been without music in the car since then. I've used my ipod which hasn't been bad but it's pretty old and lately it hasn't been holding a charge. So, for my two hours+ in the car everyday it hasn't been very pleasant. Yesterday Ty took the car to work to put on new tires. Well, when I got in the jetta to go the the I store I saw this:

I was so excited. Ty had bought me a new radio and installed it and everything. I'm so grateful for his hard work and generosity to me. He does so much for me I'm so happy we'll be together forever cause he's perfect for me. Sorry for all the gushy stuff. :-) Anyway, the radio has an ipod hookup and so I can listen to my ipod in the car but it also charges my ipod! Way cool. I was totally jamming out on the way to work today. :-) YAY for music!!!

Yesterday was a really bad day. It just seemed like nothing could go right plus I was really emotional so I was pretty much just crying the whole day. My poor husband got many distressed phone calls and even a visit at work cause I needed his strength. He is so good to me and knows exactly how to cheer me up. After my last breakdown I was really discouraged so I decided that I wanted to go to the temple that evening. I knew I couldn't go being so upset so I prayed for help to brighten my day and ease my burdens so that I could think clearly and come out of my rut. Well I felt a little better and Ty was helping me a lot. As I was driving home I was stopped a light and I hear the person next to me say "excuse me" I looked over and she said "I love your shirt...It is so cute!!!" I thanked her and the light turned green and we went on. Of course I started crying because something so little could really brighten my day. It turned my day around and I felt so much better. Today during Elder Holland's talk at conference he talked about angels around us everyday. He said sometimes it's a neighbor or a spouse. I am grateful for the angels in my life and how much they are my light in the darkness. So, let's all try to be someone else's angel if you aren't already. :-)

First off...I just wanted to tell my Brother-in-law Nic Happy Birthday! I hope his day is splendid. Secondly I just wanted to tell my sister Jen thanks. I got out of practice at 7 this morning and didn't have class til 10:45. Since she lives right by the school I went to her house and slept for two hours. It was just what I needed!!! Then we talked til I had to leave. My favorite thing to do with her is talk. She's awesome at listening and giving advice. It was just great. Plus, she makes the best homemade jam EVER!!! So, I got to eat there too. :-) So thanks for helping my morning. Love ya

Everything going good

Wow how the weeks are flying by! It's a good thing and a bad thing. It's nice to have time going by quickly but it isn't very effective to do homework when you get home at eight and fall asleep at eight thirty. :-) Everything is going well. Thanks to Steph, work is better because she told me about and it has tons more episodes of the office from all 4 seasons!!! Hope you all are having a lovely day!

Utah Man am I

So guess what Saturday is...that's right. The first home football game. I got our tickets and t-shirts today. We're official members of the Mighty Utah Student Section this year. We're super excited. Jen and Wendy please don't puke on your screen :-) Anyway, I'm just happy and can't wait to see how this season turns out! Woo Hoo! Go UTES! In case you wanted the chorus to our fight song:
Who am I, sir? A Utah man am I A Utah man, sir, and will be till I die;
We're up to snuff; we never bluff,
We're game for any fuss,
No other gang of college men dare meet us in the muss.
So fill your lungs and sing it out and
shout it to the sky,
We'll fight for dear old Crimson,
for a Utah man am I.

The Office Joy

Every weekday I work for 4 hours. My job is VERY easy. I pretty much file and do mailings. I do get bored because my desk is by no one. So, instead of listening to music I listen to episodes of the office. :-) I don't watch them, just listen. (I've already seen them so I know what's going on when I listen) On they have full episodes online. Well, up until last week they only had 4 episodes from season 4 available online. So, everyday I would listen to all 4 episodes, I pretty much have them memorized. :-) I got into work today and pulled up the website and guess what... there's 4 new episodes!!! Yay!!! Even though I've already seen them, I can take the next two weeks memorizing these lines. I like to make my sisters laugh with the quotes. lol I'm a dork. Anyway, it just made my day and I was really excited!


So, my younger just went to Iowa for school. He's just getting used to college life. Sunday night he's lots of pain and turns out he takes himself to the hospital in the middle of the night and needed an appendectomy. So I just want him to know that I love him and I've been thinking and praying for him. Kinda scary! Good thing he's so tough. :-)

Monday, August 25, 2008

Well, back to school today. I'm taking 13 credits so with working and cheer and school I'll be busy. I'm excited though. I love being on campus. :-) And I'm especially excited to go to the football games!
