Secrets Out

The secret is out! Yes, we've given into peer pressure and decided to have a kid.

We've told our family so it's safe to tell people. We are having the little one at the end of March. Waiting to tell everyone has helped make the the first trimester go so fast. (In my opinion) And we'll see what part 2 will be like.
 (Hopefully the holidays will help it go by faster too!)

Mr. Bentley is going to have some major competition! :)

Top Secret

When you first find out you have a little one inside of you, it almost seems unreal. I didn't feel much different other then just being tired all the time. Even when we went to see the my Aunt Tracy (Our O.B.) for the first time and saw little flutterbugs little heart flutter, it still didn't seem real. (Especially since I don't think I've been that bad. Maybe Kaulin thinks different! :)

We have decided not to anyone in our families yet. We figure, what's the rush until the first trimester has gone by. But it's been really hard! We always tell our families everything!
People just start to think you're a flake, your never want to hang out and are always eating foods you usualy would never touch. (Yes, I try not to eat fast food, but now when it's all that sounds good and I'm never hungery, I totally give in!) I've even had a few family member say something about what I was eating. ha. I'm sure they are catching on, but not saying anything. We will see soon. There just seems to be certain foods that no matter how much you want, you can't eat. Chicken and salmon are on the top of that list for me!


Things I can look back at and laugh one day:
  • Crying over the milk being gone.
  • Getting up to pee every night. I used to have a blatter of steel!
  • Getting upset at church and not being able to stop crying the WHOLE sacrament. It was like I had a leaky valve. I honestly couldn't stop. It was aweful.
  • Rushing to the bathroom at Kaulins parents house to spill everything i just ate, and then waltz back into the room and start back up with the converstation. Yuck.
  • Trying to keep myself busy all the time so I don't have a chance to feel nauseated. Really, only at night.
  • Lossing weight (Not good), but noticing I am getting a tummy pouch now.
  • Being at Lake Powell with 20 people on a house boat and trying to keep a secret...
Me and Karli at the Lake :)


Half way though!

This week I am half way through my 90 day workouts. YIPEE! 

 I've learned a few things about myself.
1. I was SO out of shape!
2. Bangs are no good when you sweat.
3. Eating is boring now.
4. I can actually do a hand stand! (with help:))
5. I don't need mid-day naps anymore.
6. I actually have stared to crave working out and am sad when I miss a day.

Most of all
 I miss sushi and crave it all the time!
Thank goodness for cheat days!
All in all though, I'm kind of enjoying it!


My Adorable Family!

Aren't we just the cutest. ;)

The Boys

The sisters

And what is a family picture with out our little gigolo, Mr. Bentley!

I love you family! MWAH!


Oregon Coast

We left again! To the Oregon coast to deliver a car to Kaulins cousins in Portland with Kaulins parents.

Depoe Bay is one of my favorite places. This was the view from the hotel. I think I could just sit here for hours eating claim chowder from my favorite restaurant there Gracies Sea Hag and trying to spot whales. (No whales this time, maybe next?)
I already want to go back!

(More pictures coming soon:)


Staying fit, IMPOSSIBLE!

Staying fit.  Holy Smokes! That is a chore all in itself. I some how avoided the freshman 15, but what about the marriage 12... on good days 10, on really bad ones 14. (Hey I'm a girl! My weight is a roller coaster depending on what day it is!) And when it's time to have a kid, what about the baby 30-50!!

This scares me more than any of them. Since one day I think I might want to have one of those little bundles of joy people keep trying to convince me to have, I've decided that I need to get fit now. (Easier to bounce back right?) Plus, I want to look good in one of these little numbers before I do....

Having the supportive husband I have, he saw an add on Craigslist for a 90 day fit challenge and quickly forwarded it onto me. No better time than now I guess. So I gave them a call and what is done is done. I had before pictures taken and I am now on my way to becoming fit at CrossFit in St. George.

So here is to day 1!
I think day 1 is the easiest. No sore muscles yet, it doesn't bother me that I am eating like a cave man.

On top of the 3 days a week training with Crossfit, I need to still use my other gym pass. So if anyone wants to go to Zumba, Yoga or any other fun class at Golds let me know! I would love to have a workout buddy!


Casa Nueva! HOORAH!

We are so excited to be a homeowner out in the middle of nowhere!

After waiting months and months and jumping through a lot of hoops everything finally closed on our home by the lake. We couldn't be more excited to get everything settled in.

We get to see this every morning. The views couldn't be more beautiful. Mountains to one side, sand dunes to the other.

We just have to be careful that Bentley doesn't become coyote or hawk bait! He is the same size as the jackrabbits and I'm sure even more delicious. He seems to like it out there though.


Don't you just feel like this some days?

Some days I wish I could just collapse and sleep where ever I fall like Mr. Bentley my little Yorkie.
The last few weeks have been spent staying up late into the night trying to get everything in line for the wedding expo coming up the end of January that my business will "Debut at."
 I am SOO excited, but so exhausted!

It you haven't seen it yet go to Middle Aisle.
