Proof that I am pregnant...

This picture is for all you sick & crazy people who wanted to see my belly! HaHa!
Me and my prego belly at about 38 weeks.
Disclaimer: Please ignore the fact that I look like I am in pain or maybe even a little tipsy. I don't normally look like that. I hate posing for pictures!

New Baker In Town...

I have discovered in the past few weeks, some pregnant women go through the cleaning & organizing stage. I apparently have started a new phase, which is to bake, bake, and bake some more. Oh and of course I have to eat it all too!
I had to have a special helper with the rolls. The dough was so thick and there was so much of it, he had to stand on a chair to get a good grip.
I made some sugar cookies to, but those didn't last long enough to take a picture. Hmmmm....what to bake next?

Pink...Pink...& More Pink

We have finally gotten our babies room put together for the most part. Yippee! We are just a few short weeks from her arrival. If you can't tell I love before and after pictures. We used the babies room for storage before:
You will have to use your imagination for the After pics, because the rooms in our house are tiny, I can't get the whole room in one shot.
You might be thinking, "Wow where did she get those amazing curtains?" I MADE THEM! This was my first real sewing project, and with the help of my fabulous sister-in-law Bethany, I think they turned out pretty good. (Just don't look very close).
I the bedding. Thankfully I know a lot of wonderful people who made this my group gift at my shower.
Matt decided our baby needed some friends to keep her company.
I sure hope our doctor was right that we are having a girl, otherwise we are in deep trouble with all the pink going on.

(Hopefully I can post pictures of my baby shower soon. It was wonderful and we got a lot of great things for the baby!)

AND.....(just because I love the grass in my backyard)
Doesn't it look fabulous?!

There is something about freshly planted flowers that makes me so happy! I missed not having any flowers growing for the last few months, so I grabbed my mom and set to work making the front of my house beautiful!
(My ugly flower bed before)
(My beautiful flower bed after)
Have I mentioned that I love flowers.

It's the most wonderful time of the year.....

I love this time of year. Fall is in the air, which means it is bearable to be outside. Several months ago we decided we wanted to pull all the rock up in our backyard, pull out the ugly cactus and bush that was growing. We started before it got to hot, but then I got pregnant, followed by three months of me feeling absolutely horrible. By the time I was feeling good enough to start working on the yard again it was 200 degrees outside. I didn't feel like dying from heat stroke.
Our backyard remained a dirt wasteland for the next several months until a couple weeks ago in the middle of the night when I couldn't sleep, I started stressing about all the things I needed to get done before the baby of them being my ugly backyard needs to be finished. How sad that is what was stressing me out, not buying baby products or practicing my breathing. I just wanted to get my yard done. My wonderful husband and mother helped to finish this project. Here are some before and afters.
Isn't it beautiful! It still has a way to go, but it makes me so happy to see pretty green grass and not dirt, weeds, and rocks every day! Onto my front yard!

I miss you already Flagstaff. I miss the 70 degree weather, I miss the changing leaves, I miss the fresh smell of the pine trees, and I miss not having to think about work. Mostly, I miss just hanging out with this man...
We were able to escape the heat for the weekend. Partially to celebrate our anniversary which was a couple weeks ago, and to have one last chance to get away together before the baby comes. Saturday, Tait & Bethany and their kiddos drove up for the day to hangout. We went up to Snowbowl and rode the ski lift. Matt and I actually hungout at the bottom with E. Man while the others rode to the top. Matt and him had fun exploring.
After the ski lift we had a fun dinner at Oregano's and then found a really pretty park for the kids to play at. They probably could have run around for hours.
After the park, we went back to the hotel so the kids could get ready for bed, and get on the road. Thanks Tait & Bethany for coming and hanging out with us. We already want to go back!

So you think you can dance....? WE DO!!!!

That's right I am in a leotard! (Don't worry, we are both fully clothed underneath). Last night my sister-in-law Bethany came over so we could watch the " So You Think You Can Dance" finale, and we had to dress the part. Can't wait to see who wins tonight!! (And for all those wanting to see what my belly looks ya go!)

Colorado Rocky Mountain High...

For the 4th of July we were lucky enough to escape the heat and go to Colorado. We stayed at my brother-in-laws family cabin. Here are a few pictures of our adventures....

We took a hike to some amazing waterfalls.

Everyone who made the hike. It was the most exercise I have gotten since I found out I was pregnant (ya, I know sad, don't judge me!)

The amazing view! It looked like the Great Valley (you know from Land Before Time..."we're on our way, the way to the great valley!!!!")

Matt and I took some engagement pictures!!!

Thats my man showing off his mad shooting skills. We went shooting with some of my siblings, & spouses.

R.I.P "Dead Meat". This is our friend that made the long trip home with us. Matt hit this bird within 15 minutes of us leaving the cabin. We decided to see how long it would stay on the truck, and it lasted the entire trip...all 10 hours!!!! Dead Meat is the loving name Matt gave him.

Lastly, you might have to enlarge this picture, by far the best thing we saw the entire trip. You could see this from both directions. Just remember "Jesus is watching you!".

We had a lot of fun and wish we could go back, especially to escape the 200 degree weather!!!! Thanks Tatum & Chase for taking us!
