Good times!

We decided to get in the spirit of halloween this week and carve pumpkins! Andy did a great job of picking out 2 super pumpkins. This is our 2nd Halloween together as a married couple! Where does the time go? We wanted to be creative with our pumpkins but well...they are pretty normal. Andy's is goofy and mine is girly! We like them! Enjoy the pics and Happy Halloween!

Ok so this is kind of a random post but it's something to help me remember some of the strange things that I crave or have craved. The first was in my 1st trimester and it was purely for comfort and its stomach settling abilities. Good ol' chicken noodle soup, only Campbell's. :)

Next, and not all that surprising considering I LOVE and have loved my whole life, bubble gum ice cream! Sweet Andy went to at least 2 different grocery stores to track this treat down!
Oh my love for bubble gum...I craved big, huge mouthfuls of any bubble gum I could get my hands on! I had packages and packages of it, in all flavors. I still have a stash of quarters in my purse so any time we pass a gumball machine I can get one!

Last and not least, in fact all the other cravings only lasted a short period but this one continues. I want mexican food!!! I love, love, love it! I can't get enough. I could eat it everyday, twice a day. I'll eat any kind from a restaurant or homemade. In Provo, I can fulfill this by Taco bell but when we are in SLC and I'm lucky I get to go to BARBACOA! Oh just thinking about it makes me happy!

Andy has been so good about it. Luckily he isn't too picky and his motto is "Happy wife, Happy life!" Woohoo! I'll be in SLC a few times this week and so I need to devise a plan as to which day I'll get to indulge my mexican food loving baby boy!

On a side note, we have a doctor's appointment next week. Then we start our every 2 weeks appointments. We're excited. Also, last time I was measuring big so we'll see what this week brings. Also, the baby has found a new is to stick his head or some other body part under the right side of my rib cage and stretch. Let me tell you, it's not the most comfortable thing and the only way to avoid it is to sit up super straight. The little stinker, full of attitude already!

So, we want some pregnancy photos, but kinda don't want to pay for them. This is our attempt at free pregnancy photos with a cheap camera and blankets hanging in the doorway. Her belly is very cute, but.......maybe we'll pay.

Yes, this is a real update!

Ok so it's been forever...Andy is a slacker! In his defense he has a lot going on. This is his last semester and he is taking 18 credits and working and so he's super busy. This past weekend we had a birthday party for me, it was so not my idea but it was really fun. We held it at my parents house and just had some hamburgers and brats. It's always fun to get family and a few friends together. Here are a few pictures from that night.

This is the friends, twinings, Ariel, min and Mckell.
The Sevies and Mary chatting under the carport thing.

The parents all sat together and chatted. Don't they look happy?

My 2 best girls! I'm so glad that Minda and Mckell were able to be there. I love them and it's just like old times with the 3 of us together. We're all at different places in our lives(my stage being HUGE) but we have so much fun together. I love you both!

For my birthday Andy cropped this picture for me and blew it up to 11x14 and got a really pretty black wood frame with a double black matte and gave it to me. I love it! It's now hanging in our family room. I love you honey! Thanks for making my birthday special. I especially love the inside jokes that were present in your gifts...fairly odd parents, stick boy and pirates!

I put a couple of bridals on here because we celebrated our 1 year anniversary in August! Also because we actually just picked them up and have been looking at them. I just want to say that Matt Christensen did them and he is an amazing photographer!! The final and maybe main reason I'm putting them on here is because pretty is the last thing I feel about myself these days. I love these pictures and I loved my wedding day, it was perfect.

We've had a couple of scary moments in the past month. The first being that this stubborn little boy who is currently dwelling in my uterus decided to stop moving for 24 hrs. SCARY. We called the doctor, and he had us come in and gave us a quick ultrasound to check everything. Of course he was fine, just turned weird so I couldn't feel him. Just because of how my life is, the second we left the dr's office, he was squirming and moving all around. Then this week, i had sudden shortness of breath and a racing heart and once again called the dr and this time they instructed us to go to the ER. We were there for 7 hours! I had to have an EKG and a CT scan to make sure I didn't have a pulmonary embolism (blood clot in my lungs). I did not, thankfully. It was still a semi traumatic day. Everything is good now, I go to the doctor next week for my 7 month appointment. It's getting close. Ok this post is super long so I'm done. We'll be better at posting I promise. One last thing, I'm making a quilt for my baby and I've got everything I need. I'm just a little nervous so if you have any tips, feel free to tell me. Thanks!

I don't know why there is this huge gap butI can't get rid of it!
