Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween!!! I ended up not dressing up for work today, but that's ok. When they took our picture for those who dressed up and others that wore Halloween uniforms, I lifted up my shirt, turned to the side and gave a big smile with an okay sign thrown in front of my belly. Needless to say my boss thought I was funny.

I, at the moment, don't have any pictures of Colby in his costume, but I will be sure to post atleast one of my little dragon boy :)

Can't believe that I am 33 weeks pregnant today. Only 7 more weeks to go! Craziness...

OH! Back to of my coworkers will be dressing up as Betty Rubble. I gave her the idea because she has really dark hair, her husband is blonde, and her son is a little blondie himself. I told her they would be perfect as the Rubbles! I can't wait to see her pictures! She's 20 weeks pregnant so I think the costume will be super cute! I'm glad she took my advice and went with my costume suggestion.

Anyway, nothing too much else really. We'll be out trick or treating tonight and I'm sooo glad we'll be out of the house. Then tomorrow, we have my dr apt and hopefully all goes well.

Game Day!!

Husker game day!!! Too bad we'll most likely lose today. But maybe we'll pull a miricle! haha..

So for your enjoyment, here's a picture of my cutie pie sleeping!

He's so sweet! He went into the bedroom and put himself to bed. Covered himself with the pillows....he's so damn cute.

My Brain Hurts

So I got the idea from my friend Lindsey and thought I would post a pic of my food that I made.

half my meatloaf
I decided I felt like meatloaf tonight so here's my results! haha Doesn't look super great...probably because I have so many onions and garlic in there...but it tastes pretty darn good! I would post a recipe but I never follow a recipe. I always just take all your basic ingredients and then add or take away what I want to. I never measure stuff out, so that could be why my food always tastes so amazing!!!! **tout tout** :)

My Brains Hurts

Honestly, my brain is going to be fried by the time this baby gets here. I can't seem to get myself focused on getting the stuff for baby done. I still have a nice pile of stuff I got from my essentials party sitting in my living room that I just haven't bothered putting away.

I have, however, found all my recieving blankets and burp cloths and put away all of our new born & 0-3 month stuff. Cleaning almost seems pointless as Colby just has it destroyed by the time the end of the day is near.

I think I will take my parents up on their offer on keeping Colby for the week before Thanksgiving. Then maybe I'll get some stuff done without a 2 year old dragging stuff out. THAT, or just have them keep him on the 23rd so then I can get the house cleaned up that night. We'll see.

Other news..

Don't really have too much else to talk about really. We have a drs apt on Tuesday...and I'm not looking forward to work. We have our Halloween party at work on Monday & I have NO IDEA what I want to do for a costume, if anything. I'm not one for dressing up.

I'm really excited to take Colby Trick or Treating this year! Ray will actually get to go and that makes me happy. Hoping I can get a good picture of his costume.

Also, can't believe that there really isn't much time left until baby gets here. MAN......scary.

Thanks Neti Pot!

Thank goodness for the person who invented this! I've heard of the Neti Pot before, but never really got what it does. Then saw a girl from the Real World using it a year or 2 ago and was like..OMG, that is creepy!!

But since becoming pregnant, I really have no other options then to just try this little puppy out. And I will tell you, I'm not a swimmer. I don't go underwater. --some stupid childhood fear and I won't do it-- So the idea of pouring water INTO my nose is rather terrifying.

So on my trip to Kearney Tuesday I made the stop at Walgreens and picked this little thing up. I was rather surprised by the price as it was $15. They did have other versions that were a few dollars cheaper but I found an original with a Save $3 coupon on it. So in the end, I would have paid the same for the off brand as I did for the original. (Great deal if you ask me!)

Anyway, when I got it home, I took the thing out and just examined it and read the instructions and what have you. I didn't use it right away, but the next day I couldn't breath, so I decided to try the sucker out last night. Now, I didn't really know what to expect, I mean, you're pouring water into your nose! I even went onto facebook to ask for some advice on how to use it, didn't really get much help but went ahead and tried it out.

OH MAN! I was really surprised that this didn't feel as weird as I had thought. I think because I was so stuffed up. But once you take the pot away from your nose, you have to keep your head tilted to get the rest of the solution out, then when I touch my nostral, my god, there were boogers! LOTS of boogers. Why I didn't anticipate them, I don't know. But holy hell! I got quite a bit out! Then did the other side and got even more out! I couldn't believe it!

In the end, I could breath the entire night! No problems at all! YEY!! Unfortunately this morning I'm a little stuffy, so I'll definately be doing it again today and then tonight. I really want to get rid of all this crap!

So for anyone who wants to try it, I'll tell ya from one who was scared, it works great!! 4 out of 5 stars! (Only 4 because the boogers are gross and you do have to use it regularly I think)

Just Crappy News

Today has just been full of news that is not what I want to hear. Ray took Colby to the eye doctor again to check the progress of his eyes. He's been wearing glasses (well, been TRYING to wear glasses) to correct his eyes. The left eye turns inward just a little (about 30% the dr says) and the glasses are to help strengthen them. Well, I guess the dr decided that he didn't want to wait another 3 months to see if the glasses will correct his eyes since they haven't gotten worse, but haven't gotten better either. So tomorrow we call them to make an apointment to have corrective surgery. I'm honestly so scared for Colby. I know it's not massive surgery or anything like that, but its still surgery. And that scares me.

I called my mom as soon as I got home. When she called me back she told me just to keep her updated on the date of the surgery because we would have to go to Lincoln which is 3 hours away and she wants to be there. She then proceeds to tell me that we won't be doing family pictures after all because my dad has some form of skin cancer on his face. He basically has to have some kind of chemical placed on his face to kill the cancer cells. So his face will not be picture ready. Another thing I didn't want to hear today, but hopefully he can get it cleared up and it doesn't spread. My dad has a really bad habit of making people feel sorry for him and being negative when he needs to be positive. I don't know how he would handle full blown cancer.

Anyway, nothing too much else to report on today. I did run to Target yesterday and pick up a pair of leggings for $5. --can't pass up a deal like that-- also got some breast milk storage bags and a few things for my hospital bag. Then I stopped at Walgreens and picked up a netipot. Which I am honestly scared shitless about using. But will be using tonight...hopefully.

Alright...I think that's it for now!

32 Weeks Down!

Only 8 more weeks left! I can't believe how fast this pregnancy has flown. It's rather crazy.

So, my 5 day weekend was pretty fun. Wednesday night I got to watch my Pretty Little Liars Halloween special, and a lot of stuff really started making sense. I still don't know who 'A' is, but I do know now that a few certain characters were in on a bunch of stuff together.

Thursday, my cousin Laura and I took Colby to the Vala's Pumpkin Patch out in Gretna. WOW, that place was HUGE! Didn't think we'd get to the end of it once we started walking around. But it was a lot of fun! I almost think we should have gone earlier since there was so much fun stuff to do, but then again, a lot of the stuff cost money and I think Colby was almost too little to get a "full blown experience", but I could tell by the smile on his face, he was having a great time! Next year I hope to take him again and hopefully have Ray go too. Spend the whole day at the pumpkin patch. In the end, we ended up getting Colby a little pumpkin that he just loves carrying around since we've got it back home.

Friday I really didn't do too much. Mom and I watched Ghost Adventures on Travel Channel and I really wish we got that station! I LOVE that show. I must have scared the crap out of myself by watching it tho because I ended up sleeping upstairs on the couch. lol. BUT it ended up being a blessing that I did because by the morning, there was a cricket down there! GRRRRRRR...hate those things.

Saturday my mother and I got up early and headed to Kearney for their craft show. I really wish I had some money because I saw plenty of things that I wanted to buy. Oh well. I'm sure there will be a few of those vendors at the Seward Craft show in Nov. By then I will have some money to buy more of the things that I want.

Also on Saturday was the Husker game. We missed the first quarter but we were listening to it on the radio. (I would have hated growing up listening to the game on the radio....not as exciting.) Anyway, the game was rather slow going but we ended up winning 41-14. Not the most exciting game but that's ok. Watched the Wisconsin vs Michigan State game and WOW! THAT was a good game. Too bad we play Michigan State next weekend and will more then likely get our asses handed to us.

Sunday was my essentials party. I really wasn't looking forward to this at all, but it ended up being alright. My aunt stressed out over it way too much. Only a few people showed up, but in the end, I was happy a bunch of people didn't show up. I wanted the party to be small anyway. I did get a few nice things and I did get things that I needed. So I consider it a success. The party ended up lasting about 2 hours of us just talking and by the end I stayed in town later then what I wanted because I couldn't miss the Packer game. My Packers won 33-27 (I think) and they are now the last NFL team in the league to be undefeated this year! YEY!! 7-0 baby!! super excited about that.

Today was just another work day. I'm really getting slow at work...luckily my boss wasn't a total dick to me today. I did do a lot of extra stuff today I deserve to be treated nice. I also joined a weight loss group at work. They basically told me they won't start doing my weight loss until after I have the baby. But I'm glad we're doing this! I have a lot of weight to lose before June!

Not too much else going on. I've decided I won't bitch in this entry :)

5 Day Weekend

So I am at my parents house today. Got here last night around...oh, 5:30 maybe? I wanted to get here so I wouldn't miss the Pretty Little Liars Halloween yes I know. I'm so in love with this show, and now knowing who "A" is, is starting to kill me. I have figured out a few things tho from the special, which is good. Will make a few other things make sense.

Today I am hanging out with my cousin, Laura. She posted on her facebook that she wanted to go to a pumpkin patch and do a corn maze and what not and I've been wanting to take Colby for the past 2 years! So I'm really excited about going. We found this place outside of Gretna that sounds really fun. (update) Just read on her facebook that she wasn't feeling well. So we may not be going to this after all. I'm a little sad, but I think it will be ok. There is actually a little place out here in Seward that has a corn maze and pumpkins and such that I think I may just take my little man to if we end up not going. (Laura, I know you read my blog, so don't be too upset if we don't go! I would rather you feel better then get sick on a hayride)

Either way, I am actually sick myself. I have this nasty head cold and it's starting to drive me nuts. The worst part about it, I can't take anything! I just have to suffer through it. I've been putting vicks under my nose and on my chest to try and make it through the day, but it's not helping that much. I hope I can run to walmart and find this saline solution a friend recommended to me. Hope that helps!

OH! Also, while I am home, my mother has showed me the pack n play she was talking about that had a changing table and bassinet. Thank goodness it's the one I was thinking that it was. I'm glad too because now I don't have to spend a butt load of money on a new one! hehe. I'm actually considering buying a changing pad to have around the house. That way we don't have to change him on the floor just on a blanket or whatever. (I'm unsure yet)

So even tho, this Saturday we won't be having my shower during the game like I wanted, my mother and I will be going to a craft show. I'm actually excited about going because I just love going to these things! Thinking it may just be the 2 of us going, so that's alright. I would rather it just be me and mom anyway. We need mother/daughter time. I am a little sad that I won't have any money to spend but what can ya do. I WILL, however, be happy when Nov 15th gets here and I have my Christmas money. I will have it right before the Seward Craft show so I can actually BUY SOMETHING! I'm planning on sending a little just because gift to my bumpie/facebook friend. I'm sure if she reads this she'll know who she is, but I just want to send something cute for her and her little one that is on the way!

I'm unsure if I have menioned this in my last post or not, but I am reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett. OMG, this book is excellent! And what's even more crazy is the fact that the book is her FIRST book! I can't believe that. I'm almost finished with it, but since I didn't feel well last night, I decided not to read at all. I may just wait until tonight to finish it. I'm not big on reading so I'm surprised at how fast I have gotten throught this 500+ page book!

Everyone have a great day!!

Don't Like Being Sick!!

I wake up this morning to a runny nose and a slight sore throat...fantastic. Grrr. Oh well, maybe I'll buy that netty pot thing and give that a whirl.

Anyway, this weekend is my "diaper party" and I am now really less then excited about it. The fact that we had to change it to a Sunday and then hardly anyone is coming, I would rather we all go out to eat. But when I mention this idea to my mother, good lord....she refuses to let that happen. I really don't understand why. If no one calls to RSVP, then why don't we just go out for lunch?? It makes more sense to me. I would actually like to go to Applebees in York, then when it's all done, I can just leave from there. Grr...maybe I'll have to just talk to Renee when I'm at home this week. Maybe she'll listen to me.

Not a whole lot else has been going on lately. I did get Colby's costume yesterday and I'm really excited to see him in it! I'll have to post a picture of it up here soon. I'm also pretty sure I'll be able to either sell it or even reuse it in a few years with William. I have the perfect idea for them next Halloween. They will def be dressing up as the Mario Brothers! hehehehe. Colby will be Luigi and William will be Mario. hehe. I think I've done pretty well with all my costumes so far for Colby. First year he was a Tiger, then his second year he was a scarecrow and this year he will be a dragon. I do think I spent too much with this costume, but that's alright. Like I said, there is always another kid to use it and then after that, garage sales.

Speaking of garage sales, is it weird for me to be really excited about them? Or atleast being able to have one in the next year or 2? I mean, I'm pretty sure we're done with having kids (which also makes me a little sad) because for some weird reason I picture us with 3.. why I don't know.. but even by next summer, I would be able to have a garage sale. Of all my baby stuff. Well...most of it anyway. I actually think I would have better luck with garage sales up in Seward, even tho I did make over $100 at the last garage sale that I held with Ray's mom. Hmm...may have to talk to Renee and see if maybe in a year or so she would want to do a double garage sale. Or maybe I'll just have one at my moms. I don't know. Pretty sure I could sell some stuff on ebay or craigslist, but idk. I'd rather just have a garage sale.

I also hate the fact right now that I haven't been able to blog for a few days! It makes me really sad. Ray finally got the computer up and running smoothly again so I can blog no problem! I haven't done a vlog in a while...but that's alright. The last one I made was over an hour long! haha. oops...

Ok, so I'm thinking this weekend at the craft show...yes, I'm going to a craft show in Kearney which is an hour away from here and 1 1/2 from my parents...I'm going to look for a few things. Def want to see if I can find a husker blanket at a decent price...but I still think it would be better for me to just buy fabric and make it myself. May have to get fabric and go out to grandma's and see if she'd be willing to help. I would love for my kids to have their own denim blankets with their names on them. I really love mine. I just don't know if she would have time for that. I know she's making stuff for me and Jessie right now. I'll just have to see if we can talk to her this week...or maybe mother can make them since she has so much denim and a machine.

Alright, I guess I better get going...we have the drs in an hour and a half and I look like crap!

I can blog again!!

OOOOHHH my goodness. So the computer has been acting out and we haven't been able to get on the net AT ALL. This have been driving me crazy! I just wanted to blog, but couldn't. So, here is what I did manage to write while I was internetless.

So, today, I should be cleaning, but instead I am sitting on the couch watching tv. Oh well. I stopped down at the grocery store to get some stuff to make crock pot chicken chili. Excited! It is now in the pot as we speak and it is on low. I'm hoping by 5:30-6 o'clock it will be heated through. Anyway. After the store, I stopped over at the thrift store just to see if there was anything worth while. Well, I did find a sit and spin for colby and also found a cute winter footie sleeper that is perfect for bringing little Will home in! I do, however need to start looking for some clothes that are a little the 3-6 month range. They did have a few down there, so def will have to stop in on wednesday and pick some up.
Tonight is the Husker game. YEY! We play Ohio State...let's hope we can get back on our feet and kick some ass. I really don't want to deal with another loss. But we will just have to see.

I think I've come to the realization that I really am NOT ready for this baby. I have totally been putting so much stuff off and just haven't gotten the nerve to tell Ray that I need him to help me kick it into gear that I've just been doing tiny freak outs while he's at work. I def can't wait for my mother to come down and help me sit and go through some of my stuff.
Lately, I've been watching this show called Awkward on MTV. It's actually pretty good to say the least. I guess it's just funny because sometimes I wish that I would have blogged when I was in high school. We didn't really have facebook or myspace until I got to college. First of course was Myspace. Then one of my guy friends had facebook but you had to have an account through your school to access it and that totally sucked. It's funny how now anyone can get on facebook. I'm pretty sure Facebook and Twitter are the only 2 things that we will need for a while. I know that Google now has their whole social network site, but I haven't gotten to that yet. Youtube is also a great way to get stuff out there.
Anyhow, there really isn't too much else going on. Tonight my show The Lying Game is on, and that should be good.
Then I gotta watch the Lions vs Bears game. I've never been so much into football in my entire life.
Speaking of football, BOTH of my teams kicked some major ass this weekend! My Huskers pulled a win out of their ass and my Packers pulled it out also.
In the words of Awkward - Do you think things happen to us by chance or by choice? Do you believe in fate? - I've actually been wondering these words myself lately. I do strongly believe that everything happens for a reason, whether we want to hear it or not. Some things happen that is out of our control and mother nature is a major bitch most of the time. There is this picture that hangs on the wall of the bathroom at work, and I always find myself reading it and just saying, WOW, that is perfect. That is the way to look at life. It's supposed to be "God" related, but I really don't think it has much to do with God as it does with just the way you should live your life. It's titled Desiderata.


Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection.
 Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clearn to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

So, now that our internet is NOT working, I'm stuck to writing on notepad. Oh well. I can still order many of the things that I need from my phone, such as Colby's costume. I'm a little mad because the costume I was going to order him is no longer available...GRRR. Now he will be a dinosaur. I can atleast order the costume off from my phone.
Alright, so I couldn't get ANYTHING to work for ordering so I got onto ebay and found a cute costume. I'm PRAYING that it fits! It's a 2T dragon costume. I'm really hoping that it does fit because it's a full outfit that cover
his whole body. With my little man being so little, I'm thinking it should be ok. I payed 19.99 for it then with shipping around $30 all together...let's hope it gets here in time!!
I'm still so worried about getting everything else that we need for baby. I'm getting really mad that I don't have my money from work yet. Should be around $900 all together and that will be great! I'm debating on if I want to take the money and just go to the store, OR if I want to just order online. I think a few things I will just order online so then I know I'll get what I want.
Otherwise, I'm really mad that my mother called me last night and all of a sudden they want to change the date of my diaper party...ugh. Nothing I can really do about it because I'm not the one throwing it. I guess if I was throwing it I would just throw it anyway. GRRRRRRRRRR........Oh well, just be greatful I guess.
That night...
Alright, so I called my mom to tell her that I wanted to take Colby to get a pumpkin next week when I'm home and she comes back at me with all this crap that my aunt is freaking out because a good chunk of the guests won't be able to make it to my party on Sunday (which is why I said let's do it Saturday). I almost just want to say forget about it OR let's just go to the bar and have it. I don't really care too much anymore. I don't even wanna have it.
I would much rather everyone just go out to eat somewhere. Let's all go to York and eat at Applebees or something.
I just wanna tell mom to tell people if they want to give a gift just send it to me. I don't know. I've decided to just not stress over it and maybe we should just do a meet the baby party or something. But we wouldn't be doing that until around January or February. Might just plan that one myself. Wait until around the 3rd week of January and invite family and see if they wanna come or not. OR maybe just do a superbowl party for people to come and meet baby William. It may just be like an open house or something at moms house that we may just do. I don't know.

Today was just a long day at work. Glad to say that I will be home for the next 4 days :) yey! LOVE IT!!

So, I talked to Jenn and she leaves next Saturday :( I'm soooo sad! I'm glad that she is trying something new and getting out of state, but I'm def gonna miss her. I mean, who wants their best friend to move away?? But since I'll be home next week I plan to stop up there and pick up that treadmill and hang out with her for a while.
Besides that, I got bored the other night on the bump and asked the question What TV parents do you want to be most like?? Or most resemble? I def think Ray and I are a mix between Red and Kitty from That 70s Show and Tim and Jill from Home Improvement. I think I'm a little more like Red with my attitude then Ray is, but that's ok. I do think the way Tim and Jill parent are more like us tho. Esp if we have another baby and it happens to be a boy. haha that would be crazy!
I really want us to be the parents that our kids love to have. I know I can be a hardass but that's just me. And I know that Colby and Will will bring home friends all the time. My parents actually were that way. My friends and brothers friends loved my parents...well, they love my mom. She's one to spoil everyone's kids. So I do hope to be a lot liker her...even if I don't want her to know that. haha. I'm worried tho that Ray will be too loose with his parenting of the boys. I don't know tho.
Anyway, I made it down to the thrift store today and was able to find a popcorn popper for $2. BUT it's store wide clearance so everything is half price. I only paid a dollar for it. YEY!! Also found a pair of pants for William and then a casserole dish and a pie plate. You can never have enough bake ware stuff. I always am looking for great deals on stuff like that.Tomorrow we have WIC at 10:30 so that will def help out a lot around here with food. I need to find my paystub and all that crap too.
OK, so I made food for me and Colby and he fell asleep before I could get it out of the oven...grrr. Now I know he's gonna wake up at around 11 or so and be hungry...grrr. Good thing he loves peanut butter sandwiches. Other then that, I guess this weekend I will be staying home. I have no money to put gas in my car right now...well I have about 30 dollars to put in there, but that is it. I won't be putting it in there until Tuesday. Ray will have to throw 10 bucks in it since we have to go to Holdrege for the drs. Or I could just cash in my change and have a little extra money to fill fill it. OH MAN....this weekend the Packers play the Lions!! OOOOHHHH MAN!! I can't WAIT to watch this game. I'm a massive Packers fan and I'm not a Lions fan, BUT they do have Suh (who is the man!) so it should be a good game. Can't wait!!I'm starting to struggle with things to talk about lately...I just wish I could get my internet working again so I could BLOG!! grrr...good thing I can atleast save it on here. Gonna see if Ray will let me take it to Seward and hook it up to my parents internet and use the computer....we'll see..he's picky about this crap.

Today has been really slow. Nothing really to talk much about, other then I did get the ok from Ray to take his computer to my parents house to see if I can get it to work.

So today I must have got bitten by the nesting bug because I have been cleaning the house and getting crap done today. I even had Ray help me put the leaf in the table. I wanted to have it done before Thanksgiving when my parents would be here. I also will have to start looking into what foods I will need to start buying. Here is a list that I started.

Green Beans
french fried onions
mashed potatoes
cresent rolls
cinnomon rolls
baby carrots
apple cidar
cheesecake mix
apple filling
caramel topping
pumpkin pie
cool-whip topping
ranch dip

For now I think that is it. I'm still really unsure what else I would need. Either way, that is a MASSIVE list. Should really look into Christmas stuff too. I think for Christmas we'll just do..

Cheesy potatoes
Corn on the cob
or green bean casserole

Busy Busy Month!

Never really thought that there would be sooo much going on this month. Besides all the dr stuff that we have to go to, I've been invited to quite a few things this month alone!

We've already had our one dr apt and our ultrasounds. Today was my boss's 40th birthday and we invited him to our break to have cake. Well, we actually told him that he was needed in the break room because there was a massive leak that needed his attention ASAP. Luckily, he showed up. He's pretty cool when he's not talking about work. Otherwise, he can be a complete ass.

This weekend is the Husker game! We play Ohio State Buckeyes. Hopefully it won't be a complete ass kicking like this past weekend was. But Ohio State hasn't been doing very well at all this season, so I think we'll have a pretty good chance at winning. Then along with that this weekend, I have my Packer's game on Sunday. I need to look up when we play and what channel....also, it may be good to know WHO we're playing. lol.

Next week I only work on Wednesday which is FANTASTIC! I need the time to get the house looking the way I want it to. Then on Friday, we have our WIC meeting and need to pick up our checks. Then I remember they said that I won in their drawing, so I get a prize that is related to breastfeeding at this next meeting...sweet. Then on Saturday I'm going to Ray's SIL's Premier Designs Jewelry party. Figured I'll try and get up there around noon and do some shopping before I go. Need to see if there are any great deals out at Target.

Then the next week, I work 2 days and on Tuesday I have the food party at a co-workers house from 6am to 4pm. Then we have my drs apt at 9:30am that day. That should be a good time! I've never been to her house or really had much of her baking/cooking, but she LOVES to cook. She's also a vegetarian, so I'm interested to see how her food will taste.

Then, that weekend, I have my diaper party at my aunt's house. I'm actually pretty excited for it. I didn't invited a whole bunch of people because I really didn't want to make it this super big deal. More just wanted to get everyone together to watch the game. But either way it should be a good ole time with my family!

Finally, at the end of the month, we have HALLOWEEN!!! LOVE Halloween. I'm going to be ordering Colby's costume next week that way it gets here before Halloween. Along with his costume, I will be ordering many other baby things this month. Start in on wipes and maybe some diapers.

Alright, not too much else going on, but I will update again this weekend after the game!

Dr Apt & 4D Ultrasound

Even tho today was my day off of work, we still were up early and at the drs for our apt at 8:30. I was rather surprised that we got in as fast as we did. We were there no more then 10 minutes and we got in to see her. We were there for maybe an hour just talking about stuff and asking about after baby gets here and whatever. I also got a flu shot, as did Colby which he did NOT enjoy very much at all. But no one like shots.

After the drs we decided we to get something to eat since it was still an hour before we had to be at our ultrasound. So we stopped at McDonalds...yea...not the best for me, but that's alright.

So, after we ate ,we headed over to the hospital to get our ultrasounds. First we had to check the placement of the placentia (sp?). He wouldn't move his little head enough for her to get a clear shot of it, but she thinks that it has moved enough from the last time. We'll be getting a phone call I'm sure and if it's not clear enough, I wouldn't doubt if we end up with another ultrasound just to check.

Since the little booger didn't want to move his head away from my bladder, we moved on to doing the 4D. Here are a few of the pics.

I think this was the very first shot that we got of the little guy! He looks sooo much like Colby did. He does have a pretty chubby face, but he def looks just like his daddy.

Probably going to be a little chunker of a baby, but we'll not know until he is here. With the 4D, you don't get any measurements or anything, so you just have to wait on baby to get here before you'll know if he's a big baby or not.

Here is another great little side view of baby William's face.

He kept his hands and his feet pretty close to his face the whole time we were checkin' him out, but a few times when I would push at him or poke at him he would throw his hands down towards his sides. But I do love that we got some great shots of his little toes and fingers! Makes him seem so much more real when you get to see him like that!

I'm only going to throw these three pictures up here for now, but I just had to share this one. Apparently our child already had an attitude because by the end of the apointment, he started putting his hands up in front of his face and we got this great shot. LOL.

This is very much a "no more pictures, please!" shot. But check out those little hands!! Big little hands and such chubby cheeks! Kids going to be a linebacker! hehe. Well, maybe not, but he seems like he may be a little bit bigger of a baby.

Anyway, now that we are back home, I'm soo tired and now I'm watching TLC's baby story and these ladies are having multiples and such....reminds me how much pain that there is through the whole process.

Alright, I suppose it's that time of day for me to take a nap!

Shrine To The Sexy

Because Rex Burkhead is sooooooooooooo sexy, he needs his own entry of pictures.

Mmmm mmmm mm mm mm. This man needs to meet me because we sooooo need to run off together and get married!

But I'm pretty sure that there are quite a few other woman that are wanting this man as much as I do. He's a really good athlete. We need more players like him!

I do giggle to myself a little because he sort of looks like my good friend, Matt. But Rex is DEF sexier! I just love me a boy in a hoodie! Don't know what it is, but when a cute guy wears a hoodie, I swear they just look soooooooooo much more sexy then they already are! I just don't get it. But Rex is sexy all the way around!

Anyway, here are some more pictures.

There are just no pictures of this guy that aren't good! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! I just melt! Would love to rangle me up this Texas man...that's for sure!!!
