It's been awhile....

Well, it's about time for an update! Not much new here. Tyler and I are both just working away and trying to stay warm. Never in my life have I been this cold. I constantly wonder how I ever went to BYU-Idaho. I can't believe I used to play in the snow and go out and have fun. Who was I?!?!? Tyler left for work this morning and called to tell me that it was -9 outside at 7am. NOT INTERESTED! I have started wearing my fuzzy boots with dress pants. I know.....I'm hot. Yesterday a kid asked me why I was wearing my slippers??....funny!
I had a doctors appointment last week. I am right at about 6 months, and have gained 12 pounds total. So, there I sat thinking I was pretty awesome for only gaining 12 pounds when my doctor proceeds to give me a weight lecture. He told me that back in the olden days, people were told to only gain 24 pounds, but then some scientist did a study and you should actually gain 35 pounds. Now, I love my doctor.....but he is a man with zero personality so I just sat there thinking "are you saying I need to eat up or cut back???" Finally he said, "look, you shouldn't gain more than 35 pounds in this pregnancy." I'm still a little confused, but oh well. I think I'll be fine...but then again I could eat a lot by March. Also, Nicole Richie gained like 60 pounds with her last pregnancy. Just sayin'
We went to Sexy Rexy last weekend to go out with some friends. It was so good to be back there and to see old friends. I feel like part of my heart still longs to live in Rexburg, but then as I watch students hike it up a snow bank....I think "Nah, I'm over it."
We got a crib!!! I am contemplating redoing it. I know it's easier said than done, but I have this cool idea for it which involves a lot of sanding and staining. I wish I was the chick from bewitched so that I could just wiggle my nose and it would be done. I think it would be cool to say "Oh yeah, I actually re did that crib" but I just don't want to have a freak out in the process :)
We have been soooooooooooo busy lately. I feel like Tyler and I never see each other. It's sad, but it makes us cherish our weekends together more I think. It's like we have something every night. Crazy.
Sunday was my first weekend in Nursery. WOW!!!!!!!!! The nursery leader is about 32 weeks pregnant and when they called me I thought "hmmm, that's kinda weird, because who would put 2 pregnant ladies in there?" Well, basically I won't lie to you. I don't know if I would have wanted a child if I had have been in nursery before I got pregnant. 32 kids. Like 26 of them are boys and they are all wild. We had screaming, throwing, tons of boogers, and play dough stuck EVERYWHERE! I seriously had to do some breathing exercises to get through the 2 hours!
I have been having a hard time with our relocation lately. It's just hard sometimes. I miss my family and Vegas surroundings. I don't necessarily think it's that I miss Vegas, I just don't think I'm cut out for a town of 10,000 people. Somedays I would just give anything to see some civilization. It's hard but oh well. Tyler and I have started making friends which has helped a lot! We went and watched The Blind Side with a couple from our ward on Monday and then on Tuesday, I dragged myself to enrichment. I was soooo glad I went! I met so many people from the ward and it was a fun night. I think if I continue putting myself out there, I will make it through living in the country ;)


  1. I don't know how you are surviving the weather! Seriously! You should totally redo the crib! My friend Rebecca refinishes tons of things and they turn out great. She even has a gorgeous piano she did red! Her blog button is on my sidebar, she has some tutorials on refinishing, etc...It's the Blue Cricket Design one. You should def check it out.

  2. Redo the crib - then post some pics. I love when you post; you always crack me up.

  3. I TOTALLY connect with you on the relocation bit. When we moved to Logan last year, I kept thinking "how is it possible I moved even FURTHER from family and into a SMALLER town?" I dealt with the same emotions and you are completely right about getting to know people. That REALLY helps. It's honestly the ingredient that helped me start loving Logan (However I still HATE the weather ;)

  4. You're so right about that last statement. It takes time to adjust to a new place, all the while trying to adjust to pregnancy. We miss you guys so much too. We can't wait to come see you in January. Yipee!

  5. I tried to feel sorry for you about living in a town with only 10,000 people... I really did. :) I also tried really hard to feel sad about the -9 weather. :)

    Hahahahaha about nursery! Don't worry too much. Most kids are significantly better behaved when they're not surrounded by thirty of their peers. :)

    P.S. Totally refinish the crib! I want to see it!
