Pregnant lunch

I just had lunch. Want to know how healthy I ate? Ok, I started with raw broccoli. YUM! I've been wanting raw veggies so bad that last night I made a special trip out to get some.

After they were gone I moved on to part 2. Ice Cream. Yah.. I guess that's not healthy...

Neither is the Chocolate chips I ate for desert. Is anyone else having a hard time believing that I've gained under 5 pounds this pregnancy, and I'm 18.5 weeks into it.

Do you I need addiction treatment for my chocolate addiction?

Hmm.. I want Chinese food.

Mother's Day

Mother's Day is in a few weeks.

I have no clue what to get my mom. I've thought through everything from freshwater pearls (just kidding, I'm not that rich) to homemade cards. I still have no ideas.

I asked her what she wanted. She said she's been too upset thinking about her birthday to think about mother's day. So needless to say I didn't bother asking what she wanted for her birthday (which is a few months away).

Then my husband asked me what I wanted. My response "I have no clue". I really don't. I'm sure I could come up with a mile long list of things I want, but choosing what I want the most is hard.

So.. Mother's day is in a few weeks. And I have no clue what to do.

Cleaning day

Our official moving date is April 26th. Yes, that is next Saturday. No, we are not all packed. Yes we are crazy.

This Saturday we will be having a deep cleaning day. Everything from the floors, to the tub, to the walls to the lighting fixtures will be cleaned. and I don't just mean cleaned. I mean SCRUBBED.

I am very um... obsessive about making sure a place is clean before we move in. I clean everything. I love it. A big empty room, no furniture, no pictures, no toys. Nothing in the way. Just me, my bucket and my rag! Or course, being pregnant means the husband has to help. He's volunteered to clean the bathrooms. What a nice husband. He just knows that if he didn't do it, I'd be in there with bleach, and that's a bad thing.

So... anyone want to pack a box, or scrub a floor?

College life was great

You know, College was some of the best days of my life. I didn't realize it at the time. I couldn't wait to get out, get married, start a family. You know, be an adult.

But really, what's better than living on a hall with a bunch of fun girls, making great friends, having your only worries be studying, and did I mention free memberships to the YMCA?!

I have lots of great memories from the Y, trying to figure out how to use all the weight training machines, jogging away on the ellipticals (which by the way are my favorite gym machine ever- they don't hurt my knees like treadmills), a few swimming memories, some jogs on the indoor track. Mostly just a lot of laughs with some friends.

By no means to I regret my life now, or wish I could go back to college. I just wish I would have appreciated what I had when I had it.

We're Moving!

Not the blog, Us! we're physically moving. In just a few weeks.

I'm really excited to have a bigger place, a place that doesn't have neighbors sharing walls.

No longer will I have to smell the burnt toast of the guy who lives next door, no longer will I have to hear the yappy annoying dog who lives (illegally) in the apartment upstairs.

Best of all- I will no longer have to deal with having only ONE closet. That's right. Our new place has two closets, a laundry closet and a storage shed outside! AND the closet in the master bedroom is twice the size of our one lonely closet that we have here.

Also, our new place is closer to my husband's work, closer to his family and closer to our car insurance office. Now if we need to stop in it wont be that big of a deal, maybe we can even convince them to give us renters insurance. Maybe.

Anyway, On May 1st we will be happily unpacking box after box. Hopefully Lexi adjusts well to another move.

The Sick Bug

Welp, months of being healthy has ended in the attack of the sick bug. Yesterday we got up early to go to church and Lexi was really whiny. We didn't think much of it since we did get up early- she's used to sleeping in.

We got home from church and I started feeling sick to my stomach. The day just got worse from there, fevers, trips to the potty, diaper changes and upset stomachs.

This morning we woke up to more fevers and more belly aches. I wasn't about to change 900 dirty cloth diapers while feeling sick myself, so I made a trip to the local Target to get diapers. (Why did I chose target? Cuz we needed wipes too, and their wipes are the best buy you can find!)

By the way, I love this target. I wish it was a big closer, it's a bit out of the way, but it's in a plaza with a bunch of other things including Pet Smart and Best Buy(my husband's favorite). So when we go as a family we all get to look in stores we like.

Anyway, by 9:30 Lexi was acting normal, and I was feeling better. My husband came home from work around 11, we all took a nap and I thought we were doing good. Then at 6 Lexi's fever came back with a grudge. It was still up to 102.1 when we laid her down tonight- even with Tylenol.

Hopefully by tomorrow the sick bug will have found it's way out of my house and we can all be healthy again.

Packing and Moving

We're moving.

Packing is going great. and by great I mean "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!"

Yah, that's about how I feel. Don't get me wrong, I'm not rushed- I think that's the problem. We have almost 3 weeks until we actually move. We can start moving things in our new place in two weeks so we'll probably do that.

However, I'm so used to last minute packing I don't know what to do having all this time to get things packed up. Plus, having a baby who is old enough to walk, climb and explore makes stacking boxes even more challenging.

I'm thinking maybe I need to get some Zero Halliburton boxes or something. That way we can just throw everything around and not worry about things breaking. So far I have 7 boxes packed. I'm getting so far aren't I? :)

Dress up

Last Monday Lexi and I went up to visit family for the night. Lexi loves visiting her cousin Summer. they always have lots of fun. Half of the time we are up there she spends in their big tub- without water. She just loves to play in it, fully clothed.

This particular time they were playing dress up, here's Lexi all ready to go play bingo, with her shawl and of course, her designer jewelry. After this picture she added to her wardrobe a nice pink plastic visor. Yah... she was pretty cute.

Pregnant hormones

These pregnant hormones are making my acne act up. The weird thing is when I get pregnant, my face clears up, but my chest normally breaks out. Maybe I should get some acne treatment to eliminate zits on my chest!

I'm 16 weeks along, So far I've gained a whole 2 lbs. Hopefully only 2 more weeks until we find out if we're having a boy or girl... what do you think it is? Eugene is wanting a boy, I think a boy would be fun, but I'm not opposed to a girl either! I've been around a lot of boys lately, Eugene has a new nephew, I'm watching a little boy who is the same age as Lexi- he's really fun. Lexi is enjoying having a friend here, but I don't think she's fond of sharing her toys with him. At least it will prepare her for having a sibling right?
