Weekend Wrap Up

I didnt do too much this weekend....ok thats a lie. Saturday I was lucky enough to get out my town and make a getaway to Salt Lake City, to hang out with a girlfriend I have known pretty much my whole life. Her and I are so very different and so very similiar...too much of eachother and we go insane and too less we miss eachother.

She needed a girls day, and lucky for her I needed to get away from my home for a day. We took off at around 3pm and went to go shopping at one of the outside malls here, which was smart with how freaking freezing Utah is in the winter. I decided to show how much I can control my shopping addiction and only buy a few things...which I proudly did! New wallet, mustache mints, and sunglasses.

We got to go to California Pizza Kitchen, one of my favorite resturants! and I got their amazing BLT Pizza, and a slice of red velvet cake which I took home. If you get the chance to have that it!

We also saw No Strings I am a huge Nsync Buff, so this movie title threw me into a POP mood which my friend did not appreciate. But no worries. This movie did not even play the famous song by the POP band, but this movie was AMAZING! It was a little more racier then I expected, but I should have thought that going into a rated "R" movie about Sex-Friends. I would recommed it to anyone!!!

How did everyone elses weekend go?

Friday, January 28, 2011


So most of you know I have been away because of my Grandmothers death on Sunday, so I have been with my family and really getting to know who my Grandmother was a lot better. I was one of her grandchildren who was born 9 years after everyone else, so they had way more stories then I did! and it was amazing to hear.

Her funeral was yesterday and she was laid to rest right next to my sister who passed away 10 years ago. I didnt think it would hit me as hard as it did, but being right next to my sister while my Dad gave the dedication of the grave, struck a cord in me and I burst into tears. I am so glad I have the best family anyone can ask for! I know everyone says that, but with my husband not having a close relationship with anyone but his Mom on his side of the family, it makes me very grateful that I am so very close with my entire extended family.

Other then that, I had a friendship end today over things that were dumb, but I felt the need to stand my ground. Death hits me very hard in different ways, and my friend didnt understand that I needed time to be alone and not deal with other drama, and thats how it went and thats how it ended. Its sad to say its a done deal, but truthful if you cant be a friend when a friend needs you, even if its just to be left alone for a day, then your not being a friend.

I really appreciate all the thoughts and kind words you all gave me and my family at this time, I really appreciate it. Its hard to say goodbye and let go, and its hard to see it end...when the memories we just made, they'll never happen again. By the way that is a song, but I really appreciate it and I will be back to blogging on Monday. By the way if any of you forgot to take my poll on the side of my page please do so! Thank you all so much for the support and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Do My Poll!

I put up a little poll you can do on the side of my page, to vote what everyone thinks Baby L will be. I know its early....but I really wanted to see what my blog readers think. Plus I have a suprise for Hubby coming up, and I really really wish I could post it on here! But its the whole reason I did the poll earlier and not if you dont catch my drift then OOPS.

So tell me what you all think.....

Blue or Pink?

15 Weeks!

So even though I have a few family things going on today with my Grandmothers death and a few other things, I felt like I should write this blog before I set off to order her some flowers from Hubby and I, and help out with some kids.
Today I hit my 15 week mark. I see that some of my other fellow bloggers are doing a survey on how different it is every week, so I am going to do that this week and then throw in a tummy picture...but I wont be doing that ever week, seeing as I want to make my posts about the tummy progress personal as well.

How far along: 15 Weeks

Total weight gain: Since I got pregnant I lost over 20 pounds, and I have only gained around 2.

Size and growth of the baby: 4 inches long, 2 1/2 onces....around the size of an apple.

Sex: Everyone but my mother-in-law thinks its a girl. Still got a little longer to wait.

Maternity clothes: Wearing the shirts! Its just more comfortable and I am enjoying looking more pregnant when I wear them. Hardly ever wear jeans anymore.

Sleep: Tossing and turning all night!

Best moment(s) of the week: I cant say yet...its a suprise for Hubby.

Movement: Sometimes I think I feel it, but then I dont feel it again for a while.

Food cravings/aversions: Loving Steaks and ribs and raspberries!

Morning sickness: Morning and Night...still going strong.

Symptoms: Sickness still, the cramps in my back from my uterus streching, a hard tummy sometimes.

Labor signs: none.

Belly button in or out: In

What I miss: Sometimes Soda. But nothing really...I am really enjoying it.

What I'm looking forward to: Next week. I am starting to get into a nesting mood and that sucks because I cant get anything! Looking forward to the belly getting bigger!!

Heres my update from BabyCenter.Com

Your growing baby now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces (about the size of an apple). She's busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop. Her legs are growing longer than her arms now, and she can move all of her joints and limbs. Although her eyelids are still fused shut, she can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, for instance, she's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but she is forming taste buds. Finally, if you have an ultrasound this week, you may be able to find out whether your baby's a boy or a girl

Heres a little picture of my "bump" my tummy was really hard before bed and I took this for Hubby to see in the morning, he is amazed at how much more bigger I am.
Let me tell you, this baby is probably not sitting in me at all. 
Ahh mommy loves you.

My Grandma

This week I will be a little off the blog thing. My grandma passed away this morning, and we are expecting a few family members to come into town. Its something that we knew was coming, my Grandmother had Alzhimers and Dementia and really had no idea who anyone was for about 3 years. It is a blessing to know she is with the love of her life in heaven and also with my lovley sister and also is finally getting some well needed rest. I'll miss her terribly and I will always miss her laugh and smile! But I know shes in a better place and thats what matters. I love you Grandma!

Say What I Wanna Say!

So I am sorry I didnt write yesterday. I have been feeling a little discouraged latley.

Today I wrote some song lyrics on myhusbands facebook page, which by the way this is why I hate facebook so much, and of course anyone can read it if they are friends with me and him....and I wrote the lyrics to Tonight I'm Loving You By: Enrique Iglesias  which just said....

I know you want me I made it obvious that I want you too So put it on me
Let’s remove the space between me and you Now rock your body Damn I like the way that you move So give it to me ‘Cause I already know What you wanna do

Yeah no big deal? Apperently not to everyone else who thought they had a right to tell me TMI.

I dont usually care, but being that I am hormonal and rude latley I felt like I should tell them not to read it if they dont like it. I am not writting I want to have sex! take me now! do me good! nothing like that at all, I wrote lyrics to a song. Yeah they are kind of a little sexy but he is my HUSBAND! Not a boyfriend.

Do any of you get really discouraged with stuff like that? I already have a bunch of things on my plate...pretty much more then I can handle and I say something to my husband and people tell me off about it....I hate facebook, and I would delete it if Hubby wasnt away...but right now sometimes that the only way we can talk. I dont know.....maybe I am over reacting.

I hope you all have a great weekend!!

My 1st Thursday Five.

So this last 3 weeks has been extremely hard on my family. I should start doing those Pour Your Heart Out Wednesdays...though I am not ready to post what is going on, and not sure I will be...I am going to stay positive, I noticed a few of the blogs I read do the Thursday 5 over at *Flip Flops & Combat Boots* as I read more into seemed like the perfect thing for me to do! So here goes me trying to be positive!


I feel Blessed to have such a supportive husband and family. No matter what I do, no matter how bad I screw things up, they are there to help me laugh it off...and its the same for everyone else in our family.

I thought I felt the baby move the other day while I was laying in bed...and though I wasnt sure if it was real or not since I havent felt it since, its absolutly Incredible  to know I have such a precious little blessing in my tummy!

The short 2 months I have been back at home, I havent felt up to doing all I want to do, now that I am starting to get my energy back is do LOTS of things! Going to my Grandma's today to learn to crochet a blanket. So just for wanting to get up and do things leaves me feeling very Productive.

Though I cannot say what it is, I have found the perfect suprise for my husband for his 24th birthday! So though its hard for me to keep my own secrets I am going to keep it. I feel very Elated about the whole thing!

Although right now I am finding a few things to be happy about...I did get to skype with Hubby yesterday and his interpitation of showing me how the baby is in my belly, also the time he re-inacted birth for me, puts the biggest smile on my face. He makes me truly Happy

Tuesday, January 18, 2011



So if you didnt read my blog yesterday I had my 1st offical ultrasound yesterday! It was mainly to get dated, and my doctor wanted Hubby to see the baby.

My 1st ultrasound was amazing!! I was really disapointed that my ultrasound tech was such a beotch!! She wouldnt let us record the ultrasound at all, which upset me. She said it was because we could sue her? and then when my mom and I explained the situation we are in, she explained she had a brother in the Marines...GREAT! I thought. She might be nice about it now....nope she was way more rude! When we talked to her about my doctor agreeing it was ok that Hubby call or skype with us at the ultrasound appt. when we find out the sex, she pretty much told us there wernt options like that. I dont understand her. It irritated me really bad! Also next time I have an ultrasound I am gonna tell the girl to move her damn head. I am in a position in the room where the big tv on the wall is pretty much on the wrong side! and the techs head is in the way most of the time.

Other then that I got a better hearing of the heartbeat! Which was amazing because the doctors little machine to hear it is so quite it has worried me. But the Ultrasound tech said that everything looked great and I was mesuring right on time!! July 19th is still my due date! Though I kinda hope I have the baby around the 4th...because that would be the coolest birthday ever!

I am convinced the baby's head is exactly like my husbands! Might even have my husbands thin lips! I am excited 7 more weeks and I can find out the sex of the baby!! I'll be doing a poll on my blog to see what you all think the baby might be!!! Heres my weekly update on BabyCenter.Com and also my 2 pictures from my ultrasound!!

 Below is the babys arm clenched in a fist

This week's big developments: Your baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb! Thanks to brain impulses, his facial muscles are getting a workout as his tiny features form one expression after another. His kidneys are producing urine, which he releases into the amniotic fluid around him — a process he'll keep up until birth. He can grasp, too, and if you're having an ultrasound now, you may even catch him sucking his thumb.
In other news: Your baby's stretching out. From head to bottom, he measures 3 1/2 inches — about the size of a lemon — and he weighs 1 1/2 ounces. His body's growing faster than his head, which now sits upon a more distinct neck. By the end of this week, his arms will have grown to a length that's in proportion to the rest of his body. (His legs still have some lengthening to do.) He's starting to develop an ultra-fine, downy covering of hair, called lanugo, all over his body. Your baby's liver starts making bile this week — a sign that it's doing its job right — and his spleen starts helping in the production of red blood cells. Though you can't feel his tiny punches and kicks yet, your little pugilist's hands and feet (which now measure about 1/2 inch long) are more flexible and active.

Bump It Up!

So this weekend has been crazy. I have a huge family thing going on, which I did have a post on and then deleted it because I decided it felt better to type it out then to know people were reading it. Sorry you guys maybe when this is over I'll post about it again. Until then I am keeping a bare minimum on who knows about it.

Other then this issue going on, Hubby and I have barelly been able to talk all week, usually because we dont have a talking schedule written down anywhere so its a huge frustrating thing to wait online for an hour (thats my waiting limit) and find out it was his night to go to bed early or hang out with friends. I know I shouldnt complain, I am very aware that I have a huge luxury of being able to talk to my husband almost everyday. I know I need to get something written down for him and I. The only day I know for sure is that Sunday he calls his Mom and I go to church so I we just dont talk....and that would be my rant about that.

Another thing I have to rant about is that I am having a really hard time involving Hubby in my pregnancy. Its not at all that I dont try. I do try hard! But I cant tell if he is being distant because its too hard or if its because he really isnt that interested. I know there have got to be some Military Wives in my position, or have been there. I could really use some advice. I have the Flip Camera to include him in doctor appointments but when they do the heartbeat its hard for him to really hear it, its way more quite then I thought it would be.

I have an Ultrasound today! So you will all get to hear about that tomorrow on my 14 week Pregnancy Post! But for now....guess who's got a BUMP!

MilSpouse Friday Fill-In

After a long break of no Fill-Ins its good to be back! You can join in on the fun over at *Wife of a Sailor*

1. What are you looking forward to most in 2011? from Jessica Lynn Writes

right now I am thinking short term. I am going to a few concerts this year, the most recent one is Grace Potter and The Nocturnals with my Daddy-O and then Linkin Park with someone? Also going to Bon Jovi :)
But the biggest things have got to be I find out what the baby is the first week of March. I am going to Arizona in March as well with my mom! Kansas in April. R&R in July and giving birth!! (scared!) and moving back to Kansas in August. HUBBY COMES HOME!! Trying to keep my calender FULL.

2. What is something random you do on a boring night when your significant other is away? from Lovin Ma Soldier
watch reality TV because he hates my stupid addiction. It also makes me feel like we are normal LOL.

3. What has been your greatest adventure as a MilSpouse? The adventure I am on right now is pretty amazing. Its our first married deployment and its completly different then when your the girlfriend. Its a struggle to be living at home and not have my own room but I am making it through very easy. I have struggles oviouslly but I am glad I have my parents here! Expecting our first child with him deployed is really hard but leaves us being more vocal about EVERYTHING.

4. What is the ugliest fashion trend you ever bought into (I’d like to make fun of you, so can you please provide a picture as well)? from More Than An Army Wife
I dont have a picture...but ahh 6th grade....I really wanted leather pants! I got plether pants from my brother and his wife and they were blue...I wore them almost everyday.

5. What was the high point of last month?I thought December was really hard. But my doctor appt was amazing! My doctor was called to an emergancy c-section and my nurse and the receptionist did something really amazing for my husband and I. I bought a flip camera for my doctors appts, and they let us record them fooling around with the ultrasound machine and we got to see the baby! It wasnt for long but it was AMAZING.

13 Weeks!

My very last week in my First Trimester and I am so ready for it to end! Everyone tells me my morning sickness will get 10x's better! and though I can go a day or two now without throwing up, when I do get sick I am very sick!

The baby seems to be rejecting alot of healthy foods I eat. I eat toast in the morning to settle my stomach but it always seems like I am not keeping it down very easy. One of my co-workers told me the baby will take all the nutriants before you actually throw up, so I am still eating my whole grain toast for breakfast.

The things I am noticing the most is I have a bubble in my tummy and I feel the bubble. I can no longer suck in my tummy, it hangs out there and is starting to round out and harden. Plus those gross darker hairs are there..yuck. I feel like my belly is going to be huge, maybe its because I had extra weight on before I got pregnant.

So there are all the things going on in my life...I find out this week if I can get a real ultrasound from a tech, or if I am just going to have to wait till March at my 20 week appt. Crossing my Fingers!!!

Here's Baby L's update from

Fingerprints have formed on your baby's tiny fingertips, her veins and organs are clearly visible through her still-thin skin, and her body is starting to catch up with her head — which makes up just a third of her body size now. If you're having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Your baby is almost 3 inches long (the size of a medium shrimp) and weighs nearly an ounce.

My Name Is...

So I have not done an intoduction on myself in a while. So I thought I would do a little something since I have had plenty more people "follow me" since my last one so here it goes!! the way if you have any questions feel free to comment or email me at

My name is Elizabeth, but I am normally called Liz. I am 21 years OLD. yes old. I have been through many things in my life which I from time to time talk about on my blog, since they still effect me in my day to day life. I use my blog as an outlet. I am usually very optimstic about many things! But you will find it hard for me to stop saying what is on my mind, good and bad.

How did I meet my Husband........I came to Fort Riley, Kansas to visit my friend and her husband who was about to deploy to Iraq for his first time. They were showing me around the post, and took me to the PX at what seemed like the perfect timing, because guess who I ran right into walking through the doors! Yepp you guessed it! He was such a hottie too. He stopped and talked to my friend which really shocked me that they knew eachother, because I am very shy and dont walk up to total strangers to say matter how hot they are! I found out later that the boy my friends wanted me to meet was actually Hubby's roomate. Akward. Nothing ever came out of me hanging out with his friend but when my friends finally invited Hubby over that was it! I was hooked! We went on a few dates and even pulled Guard Duty in the motor pool  while I was there for such a short while. I went back to Kansas for the deployment and we decided to make it all offical and I waited for him, after only knowing him for about a month. Hubby got home Septemeber 18, 2009 and we kept up our romance and went on a little trip to Hawaii. Decemeber 25, 2009 he proposed to me at his mom's house in California and 5 days later on December 30th,  we were married in my home town in Utah. He really did sweep me off my feet!

Hubby is stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas still and is currently on his 2nd deployment in Iraq. He only left about 2 months ago. His MOS is 13-D...or Field Artillery. He loves his job so much! It makes me one damn proud army wife!

The day after Hubby left for Iraq, I found out I was pregnant! We had been trying but nothing really came of it, and we were really just seeing what was happening and not timing ovulations or nothing like that. If we were ment to have a baby we would have one. Well Baby L showed up at a perfect time! Kind of. Hubby didnt want me to take a test before he deployed to Iraq, because he didnt want the test to come out negitive and have me be upset about 2 things instead of just one. Well because of that brilliant plan, Hubby has to miss out on everything until the end, when he will be here for the birth. Hopefully Baby L will hold out and let Daddy be here for it. I have no fears though, I am 97% positive he will make it in time. Which by the way.....I am due July 20, 2011 (for now they are doing an ultrasound to make sure since my periods have always been off) and as of now I am 12 weeks and 6 days along. I use every Tuesday on my blog to write about my pregnancy.

Right now, I am living in Utah again with my family and my 8 family members. Its a little hard but we get through it. Sometimes I wish I stayed in Kansas with my own home...which I miss! But being home right now while expecting a little one is the smart thing! My parents are thrilled for their 6th grandchild and Hubbys mom's 1st Grandchild!

Old Men and Dreams

So after my appt. yesterday, I went and grabbed my friend and we went to KFC (because my biggest cravings are mashed potatoes!) and while we were sitting there at the window to grab our food......BAM! Some old man hits my car. Automatically I get out of my car and start looking at my car...thank god nothing happened. But the old man in his stupid van were looking around as if nothing had happened.....I start yelling "You hit my fucking car!!" yeah I know I am nice. As he continues to ignore me, I decided I needed to pull around so he could get out and talk to me, the line at the drive thru is not necessarily the best spot to have a conversation with an idiot. I pull around right to where he could see me when he gets out of line from the side of the building and stand there......well the doshe LEAVES! I start walking towards him obviously not planning on talking to me, and screaming once again "You hit my fucking car! are you gonna take off you fucking coward!?!"...yepp he takes off.

As I stand in 'awe' of what to do, I turn and look back at my car and make sure 100% nothing is wrong. Nope nothing. So I had caught a pretty good look at his plates and knew what he was driving, so debated with my friend on if I should call the cops or not. I really wanted to just to prove a point, when she said..."you dont really have proof he hit you." true. So I decided we would just leave, we were both ok and that was just fine with me. As we drive up Main St....we see the VAN! I begin to wonder if I should chase him down and scream at him myself, but instead slow down and stare and flip him the bird. Honestly even old people are JERKS.

As for my dream last night.....I was really obsessed with Dolls. Like human sized raggity ann dolls. I decided to take my dolls on a trip with me. While my family is so mad I just booked seats for my dolls and didnt even bother inviting them....the rest of my dream I was debating on which doll I could leave behind....because you know Dolls are more important then family members....WTF.

HAHA I just had to share these stories!

Kelseys Book Giveaway!

So another one of my favorite bloggers is an Air Force Girlfriend named Kelsey who writes Home is Where the Heart is. Shes done an interview on me before, and after my book post she told me to read the one she just read, which is currently not in stores.
Its called 'You Know When The Men Are Gone'. According to Kelseys book review its all about the wives at Fort Hood, which we all know have just gone through some tramatic things, and also dealing with being Military wives. The book seemed very interesting to me and I am entering her giveaway and thought I would share the giveaway with all my readers too.
You can enter her giveaway at her blog *HERE*

Just Another Manic Wednesday

In the last few days a few family issues has happened, things I dont feel quite like posting on the world wide web worries! Nothing to do with Hubby or Baby L. I want more information before I begin to let it all out on my little blog. But this little situation sure makes me stress when I think about it....ok because its not a little situation, its a pretty huge one! So now I am thinking about it and its stressing me out...BAD. So I'll end that part.

This week I only worked one day again, which I am very grateful for again, because I was beyond sick yesterday. Throwing up and sleeping all ready for this to end. I am at my point of feeling helpless and doubt everything I am doing. I am probably not getting enough water, but my body is not retaining water, because I am either throwing it up, or going to the bathroom alot. I will never be one of those woman who talk about how wonderful pregnancy is...yes it totally has its perks, but I am finding it super hard to do everything I need to do for my baby. It worries me. BAD. If I was back in KS I would find it 10x's easier to buy all my fruits and veggies and everything else, but in this house I have no room for anything! I am litterally hording food in my room and having to mark any other foods that need to be frozen or refridgerated. Plus everyone eats food thats just here so its hard as hell to do when people are eating and taking everything!

I have my doctors appt today, which I am hoping my doctor will not have another c-section, because I do need to freaking meet him already! Its horrible being this far along and not even knowing what your doctor looks like. I am going to bring up my water situation with him, my mom is convinced there is a pill or something he can give me? I dont know. Deffinitly need to do something.

I also need to go grocery shopping...because you guessed it, all my food I bought with my money was eaten by people who know its for me. GRRR. Its not like I am hording ice cream or something. But I can't do that either...because I am once again on baby sitting duty, GAH. Just ready for Friday. I want my information, and I want the weekend....I dont know why I want that though.

12 Weeks!

So this week in my pregnancy, I found it way easier then it has been...Kinda. I had 2 days of no morning/night sickness but my streak was ruined by my breakfast this morning. In the words of Ron Burgandy...."Milk Was A Bad Choice". I do miss cereal.

If you didnt know...or maybe I forgot, but my doctors appointment I had last week got cancelled from a lady having an emergancy c-section. My nurse and the receptionist, are very understanding of Hubby being away and saw my heart break knowing I had to wait longer and longer to get any sort of confirmation that I was pregnant. Usually most people by these weeks have at least heard the heartbeat and had an ultrasound, which I had neither. They started talking and asked me to wait for a minute and then the receptionist came out and told me "I'm going to make your dreams come true" and I jumped for joy at the thought of hearing the heartbeat! They took me back to the ultrasound room and started playing with the machine, and warned me they were not professionals at this sort of thing, but I didnt care, I was so stoked to see my baby!

My mom comes with me to my appointments to record everything for Hubby, and she was so happy to see her 3rd grandchild, since she was never involved in my brothers wife's pregnancys. I had to get at her a bit for getting so excited and not recording it for Hubby. Heres a snapshot of what we saw....remember its not done professionally so its not a good look at him/her
It was amazing to see it move! I fell in love instantly and I couldnt thank the Nurse and Receptionist enough! I finally had what other people had which was knowing its really in there! My little one really didnt want us to get a view at him/her, everytime I would get a good look at it it would look like it rolled over and away from us. It was hilarious to be chasing it around! Deffinitly my husbands child! My nurse was calling it a little stinker.

I am hoping when I finally...hopefully meet my doctor tomorrow that he can get a good heartbeat on him/her....I need a nickname for the baby. I have called it my little minion or I call it child sometimes! haha.
I cant be sure if it was just my body or if it was the baby...but the other day I had some major pressure up my side and it was coming from low enough I asumed Baby L (awe nickname!!) found a little crevice it liked....ahh. It probably wasnt Baby L, but it was fun to think it was.

So here is my Weekly Update on Baby L's progress this week from

 The most dramatic development this week: reflexes. Your baby's fingers will soon begin to open and close, his toes will curl, his eye muscles will clench, and his mouth will make sucking movements. In fact, if you prod your abdomen, your baby will squirm in response, although you won't be able to feel it. His intestines, which have grown so fast that they protrude into the umbilical cord, will start to move into his abdominal cavity about now, and his kidneys will begin excreting urine into his bladder.

Meanwhile, nerve cells are multiplying rapidly, and in your baby's brain, synapses are forming furiously. His face looks unquestionably human: His eyes have moved from the sides to the front of his head, and his ears are right where they should be. From crown to rump, your baby-to-be is just over 2 inches long (about the size of a lime) and weighs half an ounce.

 So I am sure most of you know who Lauren Conrad is...if not I guess I'll introduce her. She's a reality star from Laguna Beach and The Hills on MTV, but after she quit that stuff she became a clothing designer and a published author. I was a fan of her on The Hills, I didnt see the 1st season of Laguna Beach...which I blame this show for getting me hooked on Reality TV. So I love her style and think shes down to earth...although how much can I say about someone I do not know.

I read her first book LA CANDY, when it first came out I think 2 years ago? and I loved it. Its a book that reminded me alot about her, though I hear it has nothing to do with her experience in reality tv. I fell in love with her characters and have really enjoyed the other 2 sequal books to LA Candy.

So thats pretty much all I had to say about LA Candy. I am almost done with her 3rd book and then I am free onto another book. I have really avoided buying pregnancy books because even though I am super excited about this little one, I got lots of advice from friends not to buy a ton of those books because almost none of them are right, your doctor can tell you exactly whats going on with your baby and hes the most reliable source. So I only have What To Expect When Your Expecting, and I dont read ahead in that book and get to read a new paragraph every week. Though I did check out the labor and delivery section, because that part terrifys me to death!

So I was wondering if anyone had any good book suggestions for me! Over this deployment I would love to fill up a book shelf, even though I am a super slow reader...what can I say I enjoy reading and feel no need to rush it. So suggestions away!!
By the way no Twilight suggestions! I read them...and these twi-hards ruined it. 

By the way! I also changed up my music! Let me know if you like it!

Happy as Can Be!

So my Hubberkins and I have been talking about me getting away from this hectic house, I have many options!

San Fransisco, California,  Fort Riley, Kansas  
Safford, Arizona,   Denver, Colorado.

See plenty. I thought to myself pretty hard about this...and as sad as it is...I honestly miss Kansas ALOT! I hated alot of things about living there, but its my home till we PCS. Our baby will call Kansas it's first home. So my Mom and I decided to drive to Arizona around the end of Febuary because my cousin and a really good friend of mine, we are all due around the same time and I really want to go hang out with them! So I am hoping by the time we go I'll know the sex so I can be on the same level as them, since they are a few weeks ahead of me. 
Yeah you thought I would say Kansas......Ok I am going to Kansas too. I bought my plane ticket to go visit my friend out there for about 6 days. I used my own money to do it, which made hubby proud because I already am saving money like crazy! But I deserve a little trip alone. I leave for Kansas on March 30 to April 6th. I am really praying and hoping I do not get sick on the plane! I about decided to drive the distance...but its a 16 hour drive and over 1,000 miles and I am pretty sure my Baby Doctor will tell me HELL NO on that.
I will be able to go to all these other places soon. I am sure I am going to California for Thanksgiving to Hubbys mom's house so she can meet the baby. Plus when I make the drive back to Fort Riley with the baby I will be stoping in Denver to meet up with my cousin for a day or two. Hopefully we will know if we are getting stationed at Fort Carson or not by then, maybe I could make a drive by then too.
These last few years I have been lucky enough to make a million trips to all sorts of different places! LUCKY LUCKY! I am grateful for this!

By the way....Hubby informed me one of our bills is offically paid off! It was a 500 dollar loan we took out when Hubby lost our keys, and sadly we had no money at the time to do it ourselfs. So YAY moving back to Utah is paying off little by little. Now just the 1,000 we owe on our funiture..EASY. and then the 6,000 we owe on our car and we are done with bills!! Until he gets home and we get my Mommy Car! And yes we will need 2 cars! So excited!
