This fine speciman turned 24 yesterday. We thought for sure we'd have this baby here by now so we didn't plan on doing anything big. We celebrated by going to Olive Garden (It's his favorite) (he broke his PR on breadsticks...15!!! FYI thats 1,500 calories people!) and then came home for some cake and ice cream. He requested an ice cream cake but I begged him to let me try this recipe for the "best chocolate cake ever." Holy cow was it delicious. It was so rich that we couldn't even finish a whole piece. Shorty after, we fell into a food coma (literally) and went to bed at 8pm like an old married couple. Next year on his 25th birthday, we'll be partying big time!

Yesterday was our last anniversary with just the two of us. The realization that our baby boy will be making an appearance soon has got us cherishing our one on one time together. I was up by 5am because of my newly hypersensitive bladder. It took everything I had not to wake David and make him suffer with me. I let him sleep in until 6. He made his famous waffles and gifted me some smokin' hot heels! It might be a few weeks before my hobbit feet can fit into them but shoot has he got good taste.
For dinner we headed to Tippenyaki. It's one of our favorite places to indulge, plus it's so fun watching the food being cooked in front of you. The chefs sure know how to put on a show. Afterwards we headed to the Jazz/Spurs game. We made- out like high school kids and made the older couple next to us really uncomfortable. Despite the Jazz loosing, we had so much fun!! The best part was at half time in the bathroom line. Three ladies let me cut ahead of them. There are some props to looking so pregnant you're going to pop any min.
I am so lucky to have married my best friend. He is such an amazing man and husband. I know he is going to be the best Dad.
Here's to a new exciting chapter in our lives!!!
I promise our ice-creams where the same size....
and if you didn't get good look at these sexy heels, heres a close up :)

David had the whole day planned out. I woke up to breakfast in bed, a dozen roses and a 1 pound gift certificate to See's Candy. My man knows what I like :). We had an early start because it was our 37 week appointment. We were anxious to see how much our little guy had grown and if my body was prepping for labor at all. Like always, he was measuring a month a head of the game at 41 weeks and to my surprise I wasn't dilated at all!
I couldn't help but be a little disappointed. I figured with all the Braxton Hicks and lightning crotch i'd been experiencing the last two week I was bound to had dilated a little!
After our appointment we headed over to Costa Vida. It's always our go-to place to eat when we can decide what we want. Usually you can never go wrong with Mexican food, but boy was I wrong this time.
I remember eating a spoon full of black beans that didn't taste quite right. It didn't even phase me at the time because it was one of the last bites and everything else was so delicious. After lunch, we hit up the mall and did some shopping. We spent 45 min in line to cash in my See's Candy certificate for that perfect pound of candy.
When we got home I opted for a nap because my body was tired and my feet where sooooo swollen.
(Fast forward to a couple hours later)
I woke up from my nap and David volunteered to rub my feet. I knew he was getting excited for his valentines day celebration ;) The all of the sudden I had this rumbly, uncomfortable grumling going on in my stomach. I told David I didn't feel well and needed to lay back down. I could tell he was a little disappointed but agreed that I should rest. 20 min later, it hit me. I was hunched over the bathroom toilet violently barfing for the next 4 hours. I'll be the first to say that semi-digested black beans are hands down the nastiest things to come out of your nose. David was getting worried because I couldn't even keep a sip of water down. He called up the baby Dr. and shortly after we were admitted to Labor and Delivery.
I was so dehydrated that the nurses couldn't even find a vein to get the fluids going. We were there for the next 7 hours. Baby boy was being monitored the whole time. He was moving and grooving like normal. My body was so tired I could barley sit up. After being discharged and getting back home I threw up twice more and then passed out for the next 48 hours from total exhaustion. I remember waking up to David helping me sip water and gatorade and thinking it was the best thing i've ever tasted.
I was to afraid to eat anything the next couple days and lived off apple sauce and toast. I literally felt like I had waken form the dead.
Unfortunately, It will definitely been a Valentines day that we will never forget. The suckiest thing of all is that we will never eat at Costa Vida again.

I have been feeling a little jipped since we decided that we are moving back to Rexburg. After finding out I was expecting, I couldn't help but dream about putting together our sweet little baby's nursery. I've always wanted to do a nautical theme and so far I think i've got some great pieces to do so. BUT, now that its for sure for sure that we are moving at the end of April, we came to the conclusion that there is really is no point to setting up little man's room, only to take it down so soon....
So there in lies my nesting blues. I don't get to put the nursery together before our little man arrives. Boo hoo for me, right? The crib has been disassembled and our collection of little sailboats and lighthouses have been packed away until April. Baby boy will be bedside until then. You better bet your bottom dollar that I will be going all out documenting the set up of the nursery in Rexburg.
For now, enjoy my obsessive-instagram-anything and everything-photos.
Does this fabric not scream nautical?? (its for the curtains if you must know)
Testing out the amazing quilt done by my talented SIL Amanda, before packing up the crib.

Big Momma is in the house.
Pretty sure Tostitos ripped us off.
Lofthouse suger cookies never get old.
Toddy and Dianna making THE BEST union rings.
the boys got a little to excited when the Patriots scored.
All in all it was a pretty boring game to watch this year, but the food and good company made it bearable!
