Yayyyy I'm done!! :) It feels good to know that I get to sleep in for the next week (or few days...or few weeks!!). Last night, however, I had the WORST sleep ever. It was the first time during my pregnancy that sleep has been a problem. Even if that happens every night from here on out, I'll take it, considering how easy the rest of my pregnancy has been.

I've been having some major charlie horse action going on in my inner thighs and random? I haven't had the typical calf and hammy charlie horses that people have warned me about.

Today was funny. I had 2 people tell me, "Oh my goodness girl you've DROPPED!". And then I had 2 people tell me, "Wow, she hasn't dropped at all..." Just like some people say I'm tiny and some say my belly is huge. It's funny how different people's perspectives are. I enjoy all feedback :) It makes me laugh.

We have another appointment tomorrow at 11:05 to find out if I've progressed from last time. As of last Wed I was dilated to 1 cm. I'll fill you in on tomorrow's news...hopefully we've made a LITTLE bit of progress :)

It's a good day :)

Off to the gym for my last day of work!! Sooooo excited :) I love my job, but I am SO looking forward to sleeping in, getting the last few little things done around the house, and hanging out with B & the pups for the last few days before Avery gets here!

38 Weeks!

Brian took this for me (at my mom's request) before he left town for his golf tourney this weekend. This was what I looked like with only 14 DAYS LEFT!!! And I still look the same with 12 to go :)

Preg Pics!!

So a few weeks ago, a friend of a friend here in Tyler took some preg pics of B and me. She has started up a photog business and is trying to 'expand her portfolio" she treated us to her first preg pic outing! Here are [some of] the results:

Oh man. It has been sunny for 5 days straight! This is awesome :) I'm loving it. I'm not getting much of a tan because I only spend about 20 minutes outside a day (in the sun). If only we had a pool in the backyard! Or...if only Tyler had ANY public pool!!! UGH.

Regardless...the sun makes me happy :) I hope everyone else is getting to SOMEHOW enjoy this amazing SUMMERY weather!
UPDATE: I just got back from hanging out at the POOL with Markquette :) YAYYYYYY. My first pool hang out of the year....and it was awesome. We almost got killed by fallen/sparking/popping power lines...but besides that... it was a pretty relaxing little sun-soaking sesh :) Love you, MQ!

I'm kicked back in the recliner thinking...

Im pumped to watch Bron Bron play today :)

Amy is in town for the weekend and it's great :)

I worked out this morning...FINALLY did some cardio and it felt TREMEND!

My co-workers had a baby shower for me and another preg-girl, Kelli, yesterday and it was the bomb. More on that later.

Our class at church is having a diaper shower for us tomorrow...burgers & diapers...what more could we ask for?

I love my hub.

Avery is coming soon!!

Happy Easter!

Brian and I went to church with his parentals this morning, listened to a nice sermon from Robert Bardin, ate a yummy brunch, and have just lounged in our living room watching the masters!

Thank you, Jesus, for your sacrifice, your love, your resurrection, and the JOY of our salvation!

I hope you have all had a terrific day with someone you love :)

NBA 2009

This is a great year in the NBA. My 2 fav teams are finding success AT THE SAME TIME! Imagine that. And my fav player is most likely going to be voted the League MVP.
And he MAY even take home his first championship. The Rockets are winning the Southwest Division and are finishing strong DESPITE struggling through some injuries. In fact, I think they're all the better for them (Sorry T-Mac).GO ROCKETS! GO CAVS! GO LEBRON! It's fun to be pumped about the NBA again. Call me a fair-weather fan if you want to...I don't care :)

Easter Weekend... (kind of)

I am thoroughly bummed out that Brian and I are spending Easter in Tyler. Nothing against Tyler...except that Tyler is NOT Pedernales Falls, which is where my fam typically spends Easter with the Freede & Goforth (& now Martin) clans. Everyone else is on their way to the campsite as I sit on my couch and type this sad little blog post. To all of our Easter Camping Fam- have a blast, we'll pray for good weather (although it just wouldn't be the same if there was no rain), and we love and miss you guys and will be thinking of you all weekend!

To everyone else: have a terrific Easter. Brian and I will at least get to hang out with his parents. They're coming over on Saturday night to spend Easter Sunday with us in Tyler. So at least we'll get to see some family!!

Sending Easter Love, the Love of Christ, to you ALL!

The Cake

So remember that post from a couple of weeks ago (I think?) about my feeble attempt to make a SUPER pretty cake. HA. she is, my friends. Like I said before, I used a little heart cookie cutter to get the layers cut out and then plastered the DELISH yellow cake with chocolate frosting. I got this cheap little icing kit @ a Pampered Chef party a few months, and I used it for the little white thingys around the edges. It was my first time...and it was rough, I admit :) HOWEVER- That little cake tasted heavenly, which allowed me to quickly forget how NOT pretty it turned out :)

The Belly

Here are some pics from when my momma came to visit last week. I was 34 weeks at that point. Rachey just came up for a couple days to help with whatever she could and to hang out :) It was superrrr fun to have moms here. Love you momma and THANKS for coming to visit!!

Daaaaang. That's quite a belly :)

Nursery Updates

So here's where we're at in Avery's room. Just kind of testing everything out :) Might replace the pic frame below the letters. OR, might just move the letters down and have nothing else on that wall. But regardless, we're making progress!
