Vampire Fever

My friend Jessica posted this on her blog and I thought it was fun... If you've read any of the Twilight series (or if you are like Clint and you don't need to because your wife blabs on and on about them), try this quiz on for size: http://www.quizilla.com/users/twilightnexus/quizzes/Which%20Twilight%20novel%20character%20are%20you%3F

Here are my results:

You're Esme Cullen - Your maternal instinct to take care of people and be kind draw people towards you. You're compassionate and loving, yet firm when you need to be. You appreciate hard work and value the beautiful results of your dedication to any project.



We finished our nursery with 2 months to spare (to the day)! Since Clint is insanely busy with school and work, I have tried to make most of the preparations by myself. This hasn't been too rough since I have found myself with ridiculous amounts of time on my hands since graduation. But, since I am growing by the day, simple tasks are getting a little more difficult! So I figured it would be good to get all of the furniture put together before my belly is so big that I can't reach past it to work a screwdriver -- which is becoming frighteningly more eminent....

Thank you to Lily for our free crib, Stacie & Mom for making my bumpers & sheets, Mom for the CUTEST rocking horse ever (which is my shower gift, but she just couldn't wait!), Clint for painting while I was off vacationing, the country of Sweden for inventing IKEA, and all the random people on craigslist & eBay for selling us their old junk!


30 weeks

I am so sorry that this entire blog has been about me and my bump for the past 7 months, but Clint convinced me that the people who don't get to see me everyday would want an updated picture of my beer belly... so here it is, in all its glory.



No, I am not having twins... so now you can sit back for a minute and let your blood pressure return to normal. Here's the real story: Over the weekend we went over to our friends Liz & Zac's house. (Who, I should mention, I think are so wonderful! Liz is my friend from high school and I am so lucky that her husband Zac and Clint get along so well! It's no wonder since they are both a little nutso, but I really am so grateful for good friends who I know we can turn to for anything). Anyway, when we got there Clint & Zac were wearing the exact same shirt and my easily-amused self thought it was the funniest thing in the world... so I documented it for posterity's sake. Enjoy...


She really left...

Stacie left for Idaho to go back to school on Saturday. We will miss her lots! Before she left, my dad whipped out the Martinelli's and we all had a little toast for her (any excuse for Martinelli's is great with me)! I can't believe how fast the summer went! We love you Stacie!


My own little sweatshop

This is a thank you to my Mom and my sister Stacie for being SOOO nice and sharing their talents with me by helping me make my crib bedding. If you're wondering why I'm not in any of the pictures, it is because by "helping me" I really mean "doing EVERYTHING"! They are so awesome and the bedding looks absolutely adorable. I didn't post pictures of the final product because I want to wait until I have the whole room put together, but I just wanted to tell my Mom & Stacie THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU - YOU ARE WONDERFUL!!
