12 Weeks And Counting

Hello my long lost friends!!!
I know I've been pretty much non existent these days, but I intend on getting back on the saddle. I just hit the 12 week mark (in my pregnancy) and have been feeling MUCH better. I seriously spent a good 6 weeks on my couch. So sick, so tired, and no motivation to do anything. I apologize for not responding to emails too. I plan on cleaning out my inbox today.

This past week I've been in St. George, furnishing and decorating our new house. I'm going to video tape it all today and give you a little peak at the progress we've made so far. Still lots more to do, but it's coming along.

Here is a fun picture Sean took of a little humming birds next in our front courtyard. We even have a little dove family in our backyard. We are sure enjoying it here and I'm absolutely LOVING the weather. It's been 80 degrees almost every day.

Great Sales Going On!!!

Lately I've been laying around all day feeling nauseous and having barely enough energy to take care of my kids. This is the time where I think to myself, WHAT DID I GET MYSELF INTO????
Or better yet, what did SEAN get me into. What a jerk right :)
I'm kidding Sean :) I love your finger paintings.
*That's a line from Happy Gilmore incase you were confused. I kind of like to quote movies.

So anyway, yesterday I ventured out into the world after being home bound for the last few weeks. I went and got a pedicure and manicure, then did a little shopping. Nothing like a little pampering followed with some money spending to make me forget about the morning sickness.

The Sweetest Thingz was where I landed and ended up finding some GREAT deals! They've got a sale going on AND having a little Ladies Night special happening tomorrow night. Here's the details.

New Home!

A couple weeks ago we spent some time in St. George looking for a place to buy. No we are not moving, just need a place to stay to escape these extremely LONG winters in Salt Lake City.

I mean seriously, snow in MAY? That's ridiculous!

So the only solution was to get one of these in the WARM and sunny St. George.

I'm SO excited about this place! All I've been doing for the past week is shopping furniture and home decor. Can't wait to show you pictures of what it's going to look like after I'm finished with it. Here's what it looks like now, but stay tuned for all the after pics. Decorating this place is going to be SO much fun for me!!!

Come on in!!!

Let me show you around...

Here is the living room...

Here's the kitchen...

Here's the casita...

with a little half kitchen area...

 and bathroom.

And this is my favorite part of the whole house...
A courtyard!!! I've always dreamed of having a court yard in my house.

With a pool!!!!

Here is the master bedroom...
 With a work out room right next to it! How cool is that! Who ever designed this house must have known they were building it for me :)

Master bathroom with a his and hers sink...

 Now let's take a look upstairs...

This will be the TV room.

Oliver's room...

 Lily's room...

And nursery...

 And last but not least...

The laundry room!!!
Right now is a GREAT time to buy! Lots of great deals out there.  I'm incredibly grateful we found such an incredible place we can now call our own.

*We can thank Isagenix for making it possible for us to afford a second home as beautiful as this one.

Ten Signs of Pregnancy

In the beginning stages of pregnancy, it’s hard to fully convert to the idea that a little human being is developing inside you.  All signs point towards pregnancy, but without the basketball tummy and feeling the little one move inside you, doubt may cloud whats real.

So today I thought I’d point out the ten signs of pregnancy.

#1. If 8 hours of sleep is no longer sufficient, but 16 seems to do the trick...

You might be a redneck...

Oops, I mean PREGNANT.

#2. Your new residence resides in "la la land."

#3. You begin craving weird things like Spaghetti O’s or get sudden burst of hunger at 2 in the morning.

#4.  You find yourself wearing things like this...

and have no clue why people keep looking at you funny. This really happened to me.

#5.  You’ve lost all motivation. Suddenly your life of productive multitasking turns into the desire to do… NOTHING… absolutely NOTHING.

#6.  You can smell a poopy diaper from a mile away, and the thought of changing it makes you insanely nauseous. 

#7.  You begin gaining weight everywhere possible including your toes.

#8.  Your hormones fluctuate as rapidly as the stock market.

#9.  You discover little black hairs in weird random places like your chin and even your elbow.

#10.  You forget important things like changing the oil in your car, where you live, or even the names of your children.

So there ya have it!

This describes exactly what I've been going through the past two weeks. I feel like a completely different person and only hope things will get better in the second trimester.

Oh the things we go through to bring these little people into the world.

P.S. I'm sorry I have not posted week #3 of the work out program. I promise I will still put it together, just need a little more time.
