My mom says that I always want to know the future, I call it planning ahead. Like right now I feel like I am in limbo, a few things have become more definite right now, but I still am unsure about other things that I would like to have planned. For example, where are we going to be living once we get back to Provo? I have been apartment hunting like crazy the last few weeks, and have found a couple that seem promising now. I was almost scammed by a really good deal that just about crushed my spirit. The thing that I have found most frustrating in trying to find a place is that people take forever to get back to me. I call them and ask for pictures of the apartments (I can't exactly get to Provo quickly to look at the places) and it takes these people days to get back to me. If I were the one trying to sell my contract or get someone to rent my apartment I would have those things on hand and ready to email at a moments notice, but that just doesn't seem to be the case for anyone else. At least the date of our departure from Texas has been set for March 10, so I have one thing planned. But I still get nervous about not having a place for us to live by April. We will stay with Sean's parents for a couple of weeks, but I would like to move into a place by April 1st so that I can set things up for the baby. I really hope she will come on time and not a day earlier so that I can have everything perfect. I make lists all the time of what I have for her, what I need to get, when I'm going to get it. And now I would love to make a diagram of how I will set up her room, but I have to find her a room before I can do that. I know that sounds crazy, but I love using this website (www.floorplanner.com) and rearranging my furniture online, since I can't exactly do it for real. But now I don't know where we are going to live, so I can't put in the floorplan of the place and set things up. I'm weird, but it was how I used to kill time at my most horrid job of my life. It is also fun because I can see if things fit because you can input all the dimensions of things so that they are in the right porportions. Anyways, so that is what I am up to right now, planning for the unknown and trying to ease my mind.

Baby Stuff Galore

Well my shower was awesome! It was so fun to get together with everyone from Austin and to celebrate little Rosalie. I can't wait until she gets here, this just made me even more excited. My mom and I spent the week shopping for baby stuff in Austin and it was so so so so much fun. We bought tons of tiny little outfits at Target, the outlets, and Kohls. I could not believe the amazing deals that we got at Kohls. Here are some pictures from the shower, the great gifts we got and the stuff my Mom and I bought. I just can't wait to set up her nursery and to meet her in a few weeks.

I used to play with this guy when I was little, we found it in one of my Mom's boxes of saved things. It is so much fun.

Sick on Valentine's Day

Sean was really sweet and when I woke up in the morning he surprised me with a rose, and my favorite dove dark chocolates. I got him a golf shirt and a book to read for fun.We started out the day by going to the gym and exercising, it felt great. Then we did our normal Saturday routine of grocery shopping. Then we went to the Galleria to exchange some of my cute baby outfits I got at the shower for a little bit bigger sizes. I will post some of the shower pictures later. Here is a picture of me at 31 weeks, but please remember I just worked out so I look awful.

Well for the second time in our relationship, I was sick on Valentine's Day. I felt like my stomach was on fire all day long, I could not figure out what I ate or where I would have picked up the stomach flu. That part was no fun. We didn't want to brave the Houston restaurants on such a busy day, so we ordered pizza in. I couldn't eat it anyways, my stomach was not able to handle much unfortunately. It looked good though. Even though I was sick, it was still fun to spend a day with my sweetie. I love Sean!!!!

Baby Baby Baby

I am getting really excited/nervous. I have a little over ten weeks left. I have a big move back to Utah and into a new apartment coming soon and I can't wait. I'm so ready to get back to Utah to set up the baby room. Here is one of my first presents I've gotten for the baby and an invitation to my first baby shower next week. It is the cutest invitation, Stacy did a really great job. I'm excited.These are a bunch of cute little pants and some finger puppets from Stephy G. She is so cute. I love the pink Velour pants, I have a perfect little onsie to put it over. I just need to find a cute pink jacket to go with it.
Isn't it the cutest invitation. It is going to be fun, and I know there will be yummy food. I love babies.

The Doggies

I have a ton of fun at my job. The doggies all keep me very busy, I really enjoy it. I just wish that I could keep some of them. Here they are...
This is Oscar de la Joya, he is my favorite. He is very active, loves to run around, and when he is really excited he bounds, it looks like he is hopping like a bunny. I love it. I wish I could have a dog like him. Lucky he has an awesome owner that loves him too.

The little white one is Bonnie, and the funny brown one is Milo. He has an underbite so his teeth always stick out, he is cute in an odd way. Bonnie is so cute and little.

These guys are really cute too, the one on the left is Jake and the one on the right is Honey. They are siblings and are 2 yrs old. Jake is super happy and excited and hyper, he loves to bark and jump and play. Honey is very sweet and calm and quiet, she follows Jake around but is very mild. Apparently these opposing personalities can happen in sibling puppies that are raised together. Their owner annoys me even though I haven't met him. He wants robot dogs that do everything on command and that don't run around the house to play. These are Golden Retrievers, they love to run around and play. He got the wrong kind of dogs. I want to take them home with me.

This is Benji, he is really cute, but wouldn't look at the camera for me. He was too busy watching the other dogs play. He likes to sit under my feet and use them as a fort when playing with the big dogs, it makes me laugh.

Beautiful Scenery

This is the beautiful trail by our apartment. I can just walk over there and enjoy my daily exercise on the 3 mile loop around the golf course. I just love the tall trees and the green everywhere you look. I got this picture off the internet and it is probably from summer time because it is a little bit more green than it is right now. But it is still very pretty. I have a lot of fun watching the people running and the dogs and the families enjoying themselves. I'm really glad we live right here and I can go walking there when I don't feel like using gym equipment. Sometimes I get jealous of the people running though, I wish I could run, but I'm a little bit afraid. I worry that because I haven't run in a while, my hip was hurting so I just couldn't do it but now it feels better, I worry that I might have contractions or something might happen to the baby and what the heck would I do here, I don't have my doctor or my coverage and it just stresses me to think of what could go wrong. I really do want to run though, not the whole three miles, but maybe just half a mile or so. We'll see. I feel good, and think I could do it. So maybe, I'll let you know if I dare even try.
