I had some days off this week and it's been so nice! I have no pictures because I took my camera absolutely nowhere, which was actually really nice. Anyway, some things that we have been up to while Josh has been gone hunting all week...

* Back to School (Preschool) shopping for Alli in Park City with my sister and Dax, so fun! I would have shopped for me but I hate shopping for me when I'm prego- I'm sure you know how I feel
* Playing with friends & neighbors
* Swimming! Alli is such a little fish now and I love it
* Cleaning/organizing
* Running hundreds of errands
*Cleaning out the car
*Sleeping in
* Getting my hair done
* Getting Alli's old baby clothes out of the garage & washing them
* Making yummy things like spinach & artichoke dip, sugar cookies, pasta salad...yes I may have had a few cravings here and there =)

Anyway, it's been a nice little break and now I'm ready to have my hubby home and Alli is ready to see her Daddy!

Side note- What is a good double stroller? Both jogging and regular...
Let me know your favorite..Thanks!

Half Way

Well folks, I am half way through this pregnancy! I'll be 21 weeks on Sunday which is so crazy to me! I felt the baby move for the first time on August 15th- it's always such a surreal comforting feeling. 
This pregnancy so far has actually gone by really fast. I can't wait to find out what it is...right now I kind of think it's another girl. My ob office is pretty strict and won't let you find out until 21 weeks, so my ultrasound appointment is next Tuesday and I can't wait!!! Then the fun will begin and I can actually start preparing for it. Here is a half way belly pic...I HATE belly pics but whatev, I'll probably regret it if I don't take any at all.

In other news, Alli just finished her 2nd year of swim lessons! She has made a vast improvement!!! By the last few days she was going under water all by herself by choice with no fear! It was so fun to watch her, and I have NO pictures. How lame of me. But she loved her two teachers both named Sarah and she was the cutest little swimmer in her class in my opinion =)

Josh is deer hunting for a few days and we will sure miss him. We’re not used to having him gone for more than a couple days. However, he will probably not be missing us much because he'll be doing what he loves, HUNTING!!

Alli starts preschool and dance in a couple weeks and is SO excited. I’m excited for her but a little sad..she needs to stop growing up so fast. We’ll see if I shed any tears on her first day, I’m guessing I will probably since I’m already a little hormonal anyway due to the pregnancy.

Gettin Stuff Done!

The following things have been "checked off my list" and it makes me feel better to write them down...

Vacuumed and cleaned upholstery on couches
Stained picnic table
Cleaned out and organized file cabinet
Cleaned out a couple"junk drawers"
Cleaned play room
Cleaned out closet and got rid of old clothes and shoes that I've been holding on to
Organized towel closet
Organized bathroom cabinets
Finish painting a nightstand that I was refinishing doing for Alli's room
Changed batteries on all smoke detectors 

We still have a lot more stuff to get checked off my list. I'm not sure if it's "nesting" already or if I've just been putting it off for way too long =) Either way, it feels great to get some of it done! 

Furthermore, I went to Ikea today to get a couple things and Alli is now tall enough for the childcare play place that they have! Right when we walked in she saw it and wanted to go play and I was not complaining. They watch kids for up to an hour!!! Needless to say, it was divine and I had a very peaceful shopping trip. She's not too bad to shop with, but still...I really enjoyed it =) Now, I'll be making excuses to go there a lot more.

Owlz Game

Josh won some tickets to the Owlz game so of course we went and used them! It was perfect weather and so relaxing. We stayed the entire game, the Owlz won and we saw some fireworks! 

 This was on our way to the game. She was out like a light in about 5 minutes of being in the car.

Pool Party

We decided to go to our dental office pool party and Alli got to meet the Tangled Princess! Also, it was at the Lindon city pool which is pretty cool! We had never been there before.

5 Years ago today...

Marks the day that we got married! Being married to this man makes marriage so much fun and exciting. He's such a great guy and Daddy. I love you Josh. Happy 5TH Anniversary with many many more to come!

Me with my Anniversary flowers that Josh brought home for me right before our date. We went to Outback and then went and got me a carmeled apple from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and then came home and watched "Shark Week". So romantic right?!
I liked it =)

Just for Alli

Alli Loves to watch herself on video. She asked me to make a video of her the other night and then we made about 5 after that. Then she would watch them over and over and laugh and laugh! So this is mostly just for Alli so she can watch herself on our blog =)
