Nice Try :)

My sweet husband tries to make me feel better by saying he looks pregnant too. Then, he uses all the energy he has to push his belly out as far as it will go. I then explain to him that it takes no effort at all for me to look like this and I don't have to push out at all... Nice try though sweetheart :)

10 weeks and counting!

So just for the record, I am 30 weeks pregnant and counting! It is getting to the point that I am uncomfortably large. I have officially passed the "aww cute!" stage and have made my way to the "oh, when are you due?" stage. No one ever tells you that pregnancy isn't all its cracked up to be... Let me just let everyone know that it's NOT! I have come the realization that I feel sorry for overweight people. It is so hard to do simple things such as bending over to tie my shoes and get on and off the couch. Those little things I use to take for granted, now often require some extra help from Jace. It is quite frustrating. AND... I am just going to continue to get bigger and bigger. Luckily, only 2 more months! but, I have a feeling it's going to be a loooooooong two months.

Not Too Shabby

Jace came home from Reno saturday night! It was so GREAT to have him back! His team came in 3rd place out of ten teams. He was a bit disapointed considering this was his last year going and last year, his team took first. None the less, he had a great time and brought home a lot of good memories.

booo for RENO!

so for those of you who dont know, jace is a senior at UVU in the construction management program. every year they pick a team of guys who go to reno, nv to represent the school in a construction competition; and every year the competition just happens to fall during the week of valentine's day. this shouldnt surprise me considering MEN are in charge of the competition. so jace will leave tomorrow around 6 a.m. and wont be home until saturday night (VALENTINES DAY) around midnight. to say the least... i am BUMMED! this has been the third year he has gone, so i guess i should be use to being sweetheart-less on valentine's day. to make matters worse, i absolutley HATE being alone.. i wish McRae was here already to keep me busy... i really shouldnt complain. this is a huge opportunity for jace and our family. one of the days during the competition there is a huge job fair in which hundreds of construction companies come from around the country to recruit new employees. they typically look at the seniors because they will soon be done with school and wanting a career. so jace is really excited and i am trying to be. but all i can think about is sleeping by myself for three nights in a row! last year UVU came out on top and jace came home with all smiles and a trophy that he proudly displays in our living room. all i can say is... to make this all worth it... they better WIN!
