For Sale:


Brand new.. ok, one year old sofa and love seat!! It's not that we don't love them it's more like I'm looking for a change, so we want to sell them for $600.
So here's a picture of them: (We may even be able to help you move them)

This is the Love seat.. super cute.. and we kept is extremely clean. Pet free/smoke free environment! (and wayyyyy comfortable)

Here's the sofa, it's exactly the same color as the loveseat... but for some reason I couldn't get a good picture!

A little bit of everything:

So, this is our first baby, as most everyone knows, and let me just tell you how much I love being pregnant (please note the intended sarcasm). After I rant a little bit, I will go on to happier stuff I swear but here goes:

First of all, whoever said pregnancy is beautiful must have been a man because it is not. It is the ugliest thing I have ever unintentionally gotten myself into. First I throw up like 5 times every morning. Second, after I eat breakfast (which is usually half of a half of a bagel and some fruit), I throw up again! yay! It's so much fun!! I would say that it takes me a good two hours in the morning to get ready. Ok, so in the afternoon I am a little better, but then it starts all over at night! I hate it!

Then, oh yes.. it gets so much better. The weight gain!! OK ladies, we know our babies need us to gain weight.. but why in such ugly places? I swear for the little bit I eat, I have gained like 5 pounds which may not seem like a lot, but it's all in my hips.

I think I am going to stop right there.. before I get carried away and everyone starts to think I'm some terrible person for absolutely hating to be pregnant. And also because complaining about it doesn't do any good.

ok, so the good news:

My parents are so sweet and decided they would buy us a stroller car seat combo, I picked out the cutest one! (Well I think its the cutest)

I'm sure you can't tell.. and you probably think we are having a boy because of the blue.. but truth is, I don't think we are going to find out what we are having (also I'm only 10 weeks along).. and I just really like the stroller/car seat, BUT, there are little tiny owls on it and they are so cute! Jarom and I went to the store the other day.. and pushed it around to make sure we like it before my parents buy it! but I am so excited about it!!

Second, We are buying.. in the process of locating I guess I should say.. this crib. It's beautiful! I love it so much! and It's black.. so it will match nearly all our furniture:

That little tiny ity bitty bean shaped object is our baby!!! how CUTE is he/she?? I just love them already :)

So, my first doctors appointment went well! I knew what to expect, and havehad a few ultra sounds before for various reasons, so I wasn't nervous or anything. We got to see the babys heartbeat (and hear) which was sooo cool! and found out a lot of useful information. I am so much more excited now that I've seen the little guy (or girl) and can't wait till it grows bigger so I can meet him or her!!

Anyway, I was really impressed with my midwife. She was super nice and answered all my questions, she even took the extra time to get me some information about baby hypno classes-- which I am so excited to take since I am going to do this whole process naturally!!

So, I'm still not showing, which is super lame, and the doctor said I probably wont start to look pregnant until I'm about 25 weeks.. so theres some good and some bad to that. In the mean time I'm sure I'll just start to look chubby. I'm going to need some serious encouragement from Jarom though, I have the hardest time when I gain weight.. but knowing that the baby needs me to is going to help a lot.

As far as the morning sickness, I'm still sick, and thats because I'm only 9 weeks along! This whole time I thought I was nearly three months and I was 2 weeks off! It's okay though, I kinda felt like I would have an October baby. The official due date is: October 14, 2010!

Don't worry, I'll keep everyone posted as this progresses.

for the last two and a half months...

I have been so sick. Cleaning, cooking (which I never really did anyway), and other household chores have gone by the wayside. I would just like to thank my wonderful little husband. He is so amazing, and helps me with everything! He cooks for me and does the dishes, I am so lucky to have such a great guy in my life. I think I'm the luckiest person in the world!
anyway, we go to the doctor Thursday, I'll post pictures then!!
I love you Jarom!!

The decision has been made...

Yes! for all your wonderers out there, Jarom and I are going to welcome a sweet little baby into our family... approximately 7ish months from now, on September 27th, 2010! We are so excited, even though the news took us both by surprise! So anyway, I'll be sure to keep everyone updated.. on my belly and the baby haha..

But as of right now I am about two and a half months along (and not showing, therefore I will not bother to put up a picture of myself), and we have our first doctors appointment on March 11th! I am pretty excited about that, eventhough I've been so sick, I don't really feel "pregnant" so seeing our little one (even if it's only like 2 inches long) will be so amazing!
