My 3 loves, Shaun, Baby, and Josh Groban

Great Monday? I know Monday's usually stink! The going back to work after the weekend. Yuck! But this Monday was different. When I got into my car their was a beautiful note from Shaun on the steering wheel. (I think someone read my earlier blog joking about, Do guys even know what romance is?, So good job Shaun! Loved the note)

They say you should listen to some good music while you're pregnant. What could be better then Josh Groban? I LOVE his music! It is so beautiful! Even when he sings in another language and I have no idea what he's singing about, the music just moves me. So all the way to work and home I listen to Josh Groban. My favorite is his CD closer. I think everyone needs some soothing Josh Groban to make you feel good. Love it, Love it, Love it!

By the end of the work day I was getting a little tired and not liking Monday or work in general. But, On my way home I had the up lift of Shaun's beautiful note, The miracle and beauty of being pregnant, And beautiful music from Josh Groban.
So, Shaun to go home to, Baby to sing to (not sure that's a plus for baby), and Josh Groban's amazingly soothing music. ***sigh*** I'm good!

Another week!!

I got a call from my doctor's office on Thursday telling me that the lady they had me set up with to do my Ultrasound/Anatomy scan was not contracted with my insurance.
They said they could get me in with the people down stairs from their office and it should be no problem getting me in the same day that I had. November 24, As in THIS Monday.

I called to set everything up at the new place. Things took a turn for the worst! They could not get me in until December 1st!! What??? I have been so excited to FINALLY find out what we're having! Now I have to wait ANOTHER week!
I know a week really is not that long. But this anticipation is killing me. I guess I'll learn to be patient. (Not my best quality)
The good thing is I'll be 21 weeks along and they should REALLY be able to get it right. And maybe, Get a better look at the babies development.

The mystery goes on.

twilight madness

Is everyone taking crazy pills? Am I missing something? I feel like everyone has been invited to the party but me.
Here's my problem.........Are you ready for this..........I don't like the twilight series! Or just the first book because that's all I could stomach! I just don't get it! I love to read, I have always been a big reader. But I thought the book was poorly written and WAY to cheesy! I barely could suffer through the never ending talk about how gorgeous edward was...blah! blah! blah! I'm sorry to say, But I found so many things about the book that were............stupid!

Just look at the book cover. Don't you remember the story of Snow White that was also offered a nice red apple? We all know what happened to her!! Don't take it!!

I'm stuck in the "Twilight zone" do-do, do-do, do-do, do-do, HELP!!
My sister Angie is the only person I know who thinks the same way I do. Everyone else goes on and on about how great it is! AAAHHHHHH!!
I'm happy for those that love the books because you have plenty of people to talk with about it, But I'm stuck feeling lossed. I don't get it!!

I can't wait for this madness to end! There's still 3 more movies to go. I hope I can make it through all this with as little throw-up as possible!!

Here are some things I've been told because I don't like it:

1. Are you even a girl? (Great! Now what do I do? I don't want to be a boy!!)

2. You must have a great romantic relationship and you don't need romance (Ha, Ha, Ha, Ya right, Oh Puke!! I love my Shaun but he could always be better in the romance department, in fact, do guys really know what romance is?)

3. I'm just NOT a romantic (Which in truth, I really am. But this is not my idea of romance)

Tell me what you love so much about Twilight!! Please help!! I'll try to keep the barf bag close by, Just in case.

*****Warning, The views of this blog post are of the blogger only. Please do not take offense if you love Twilight. That's great if you do******

18 weeks 5 days

It's time to see my belly grow!! Here I am 18 weeks and 5 days

Shaun said I should go get on the shirt I had on before so we could really see the growth. Here I am in the same shirt I had on last time
It's so fun to compare these pictures. So every 4 weeks I will take a picture. Here is me back at 14 weeks. I love to see the growth!!

I had my appointment today with Doctor Damore. Everything looked really good. I've gained 4 more pounds so I'm now up to 7 pounds. My blood pressure and urine looked good.
My favorite part, The heart beat, Was really funny because the baby kept wiggling around. She would find the heart beat and then it was gone. She would move it around and we would pick the beat up again and then it was gone. She said the baby was just wiggling around. (hee, hee)

I have to admit that I have become a little obsessed with my growing belly. I just love it!! I find myself looking at it in the mirror constantly. I've been caught many times at work in the bathroom rubbing and admiring my belly in the mirror. I just love it!!
The whole miracle of pregnancy is amazing. I feel blessed everyday. It's funny how you can love the baby so much already!! No matter if I feel tired, uncomfortable, growing pains in my belly, or any discomfort from pregnancy I still just absolutely love that little baby.
I feel honored to be their mom!! And thank Heavenly Father everyday for this miracle.
I love you baby!

Shaun loves his Dew

Great!! Now the dog has picked up on Shaun's bad habit!
Don't do the Dew!


It was my turn for Bunko on Tuesday. Bunko is a fun game where you have 12 people in your group. We always have it on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, with a few exceptions for the holiday months like Thanksgiving and Christmas where we have it on the 2nd Tuesday. Once a year you have it at your house. November was my turn. You serve dinner and you get the prizes. We play a fun dice game and depending on how you do you get different prizes. Everyone goes home with something. It's really just fun to get together.
Here is some fun pictures of the night. Thanks to my bunko girls for another fun night!!

The prize table
I loved these baskets

The yummy salad bar. Which I have to admit was delicious!
We had all sorts of goods to build our salad's and yummy fruit
The group enjoying each other and dinner

Thank you!!

It's veterans Day today and I want to personally send out my thanks and appreciation for all those that have fought and have died for this grand nation, The United States Of America!! That I have the honor to live in.

I love to hang my beautiful flag out in front of my house. It gives me great joy!! To see that flag held high. The red, white, and blue means so much to me!!

Thanks to all for defending my freedom!! I love you!!! Thank you!

Representing the red white and blue
The colors of our flag stand out proud and true.
The white stars on blue background with red and white stripes
Remind me of these veterans, who all risked their lives.
Just so the people of the U.S. could all live in peace and be free
These are the heroes that represent you and me.
They stood up strongly, untied as one,
And kept up the fighting until they were done.
And although some have fallen, and lost their lives in war,
We pray for each one of them.
And now that their souls live on forever more,
Above in God's hands.
They watch over our nation,
And give us strength to triumph over others with strong anticipation.
So every year, when this day comes by,
Think of all the veterans that while fighting, had to die.
And remember that they were people
With fire and passion embedded inside.
They die for this country,
So remember and honor them with pride

The election is over!

I'm so glad the election is over. I listen to a lot of talk radio and have watched this whole thing go down for what feels like forever! I'm sick of it!
Even if the outcome is not the way I would have liked it to go. I think as an American you do have to be proud that history was made and how far our great country has come.
The worst part is that we have a Democrat/liberal president with Harry Reed leading the senate and Nancy pelosi leading the house!! AAAHHHH! I thought Halloween was over. That is truly frighting!
but, because Thanksgiving is coming up I'm going to look to the future and hope for the best! I'm hoping Obama will not be as liberal as he has been and will come to the middle and really try to work things out that will be best for this great country.
I love this country! I feel so blessed to have the freedom's that I enjoy daily. I'm glad that my baby gets to be born in this wonderful nation! So I will pray for the best and hope that the ones in Washington will do the best for those they work for, "We the people." I think they have forgotten that.

God Bless America!!

Halloween fun

We went over to my sister Tara's for Halloween. They had a Haunted House set up in the garage. So much fun! We went Trick or Treating in the wonderful arizona weather. A lot of people sit outside in front of their house to give out candy. My parents were here visiting and they really enjoyed the nice weather. We were happy to have them here! I always enjoy halloween.
