Time flies

I can't believe how quickly time is going by! In two months Nate and I are having a baby. This is unreal to me. AND.... between now and then ALOT is happening so I know time is going to go by even faster!

This weekend (tonight actually) my parents are coming into town as are the Neely's. Yay! It is going to be great to see them plus Nate's birthday is coming up so we are going to do some fun stuff. Nate and I are going to see Harry Potter, Vanessa and I are going to Salt Lake. Then after all of this... We are going to Carson and San Diego, Jonny boy gets back from his mission, and then it is time to have the baby. Yikes!

Guess what I learned the other day? My doctor served in Germany. How awesome is that? We are so meant for each other. 

Last weekend Nate, Vanessa and I went camping. It was super fun. My favorite part was the tin foil dinner. So good. It poured with tons of lightening and thunder but we stayed nice and dry in our little tent. It was great to be cuddled up with a boy and a pup while watching psych and reading Harry Potter. Fun fun.

So that is a basic update of what is happening now. I am going to go find other ways of wasting time while I avoid leaving the house. Actually it is only supposed to be 96 degrees today, so maybe I should take advantage and get my errands done.

Catch up

Here is a quick update of what has been going on with us recently:

Nate took boards and passed. He did very very well.

Vanessa has discovered the fun that comes from blowing bubbles. It has become a wonderful way to entertain her while not having to chase her around the house.

I am doing great, as is the baby. We have bought all of our baby gear and besides being completely clueless about taking care of a baby, we are ready to welcome her into our home.

Though I never thought I would do it again, I will likely be ditching Nate a few more times this summer. Vanessa and I have places to go and people to see, and well, Nate has school.

New News

Nate and I are expecting a baby girl and we are so excited. Now that it is out in the open I can write in this blog again. You see, writing about how sick and lazy I have been, as interesting as that may sound, I am guessing would not be the most popular choice for a reading topic. Henceforth I have refrained from writing about such things until now.

Let's see, I am almost 5 months pregnant and weigh 91 pounds. I have officially changed from a girls 12 to a 12 plus, since girls plus sized clothes seem to be my only hope of having anything to wear in the future. Nate has been an excellent husband as always, Vanessa seems to understand that my bending over and chasing her under the table days are just about over, and all in all things are going great. We are very excited to welcome this baby girl into our home (I still feel like it is a boy...) and though our budget will need some serious adjusting, we cannot wait to spoil this baby.

Fun times ahead!

I have not written in a long time, and that is because I haven't felt like it AT ALL. In fact, I haven't felt like doing much of anything, but that feeling is starting to subside and I am actually starting to enjoy life again. There are quite a bit of things I am looking forward to in the next few weeks, the first being that Nate is about to finish his second year of dental school. Woo hoo! Friday is his last final and then he has a 2 week break.... well, not a break actually. He has to study for boards which are just 4 weeks away. I plan to leave town like a normally do, this time for about 2 weeks. My mom and I have much to do in those two weeks though. Trust me, it will not be a vacation.

Even though Nate is off next week, I have to work ALOT everyday. This is a blessing though because you see, Vanessa won't have to get locked up. Nate will be home to play with her. =) Amazing how things always work out just right.

So, next week will be terrible, BUT the week after is going to be so fun! For several reasons, some of which I will not mention, but guess what? Our anniversary is coming up! Nate and I are going on a Staycation up at Mt. Charleston, and guess what else? Pets are welcome. So Vanessa gets to come. We are very excited to relax and do some hiking. Should be great.

Those events along with a few trips to San Diego, a few visits from family, and a probable trip to Carson City make the next few weeks very exciting. Who cares about graduating? There are many more things that I would rather spend my time on.

Valley of Fire

Nate and I just got back from a fun trip to Valley of Fire. Such a simple place but it is close by and we don't have much time to leave town, so it worked out great. We brought Vanessa so it was her first camping trip and she did so good! She's so cute! Snuggled in my sleeping bag, was polite to other campers, that fearless, little mountaineer. I love going camping with Nate because he takes such good care of me and is always so prepared. I always know I will be comfortable and when I want to come home we can. 

Friday night we went on two hikes and then made cheeseburgers, listened to the BYU basketball game a bit, and then had smores. We watched Secretariat. The weather was great. Just a really nice day overall.

This morning we did a few more little hikes and then came home. We were home and clean by noon and it was just such a nice trip. We slept all afternoon and little puppy is still exhausted. Thank goodness for spring break.

Is it May yet?

The grocery shopping is finally done,
A task to me that is not fun.
The oil's changed, my lesson's planned,
This Saturday was not that grand.

These tasks mundane, and far from great
Lead me to appreciate
The food I have and car that drives,
The chance to bless some peoples' lives.

But there is one thing on my mind,
It bothers me, that I'm not kind.
With time for everyone but me,
Nate has so much charity.

So starving for attention I,
Selfishly let time waste by.
Until the day of rest arrives,
Where we do not have separate lives.

Although I drag my feet and whine,
I am really doing fine.
Just overwhelmed with what's ahead,
I think, for me, it's time for bed.

Trophy Husband

Nate is going to get a huge trophy when he gets to heaven. He puts up with a lot. But this is not just a one sided tolerance, you see there are a few things I endure as well. So lately, I have been grumpy, and lazy and tired. I have not wanted to make dinner (though the last two nights I did accomplish such a feat), I complain, and whine, and lay around while Nate takes Vanessa one walks and cheerfully goes about his ways.

But today. Oh my goodness. This cheerful, cute, nice, sincere adorable husband that I have came in while I was sleeping on the couch. He goes and makes himself a lunch, and then sits down and starts stirring strawberry syrup into his milk. Oh my gosh.... he was so loud! Just clinking the spoon against the sides of the glass over and over again.... FOR LIKE 10 MINUTES! I was so angry. Then, he leaves his dishes in the sink, and says it was because he didn't want to wake me up. RIGHT....

I tell Nate every day that I am going to go to the store and buy some food. I never do. I always intend to though. I am sincere in my intent though my statements usually end up being lies. He lets me whine to him and is always so happy and nice. He lets be be lazy and never judges me. He is such a good husband. I have no idea why he likes me. Our dating history should have driven him away, but he stuck around. Let's see if he can handle the next few months. Yikes.
