Small Speed BUMP

I have not done the greatest job at documenting my growing belly, but here are some pictures

This is at 9 weeks. After a home workout 

12 weeks or 15 but I am pretty sure its 12 ? 

I finally made Trey take some pictures of me yesterday after church.. I am a little over 16 weeks here. The skirt isn't doing anything for my bubble butt :) 

I assume in the next couple weeks she will make a bigger appearance :)

pregnancy test, pregnant, and baby girl

I ve been a terrible blogger.  But there has been some exciting things happening in our family...

Aug 20th Finding out we were pregnant... I was feeling tired, starting freaking out that there could be a possibility that I was pregnant. I drove to the store got a pregnant test and went to the self checkout line...peed on the stick and both game out with a big "PREGNANT" ... I cried.. out of sadness at first, I was in shock, we both were. A day later I was very excited.. Trey was always excited :)

i took four test just to make sure 


I was pretty miserable for the first three months... I was sick literally all day, then I broke my wrist pretty early on which was a challange in its self.  I was one of those girls that claimed I WOULD eat so healthy during my pregnancy.. well that doesn't really go the way you want when you don't want to eat anything but potatoes... and bread.

how we announced our pregnancy 

documenting my broken wrist.. I got my cast off and eventually just had a brace..

this is the first picture of the baby. It was a really cool experience, the baby was just moving around like crazy. It became very real for me then. 

the day we found out we were having a baby girl :) 

I am excited/nervous to meet our little girl. I know that being a mom will be a huge challenge but the best thing we could ever do. 

no names yet

3 years

I couldn't forget to blog about our three year anniversary. We celebrated in California, and it was just what we needed. We spent time laying on the beach and eating yummy food. I can't believe its already been three years. I am lucky to be married to such a great guy, marriage isn't always easy and its not always perfect, but its worth it!

Love you Trey

Birthday Weekend

My better half turned 26 this weekend. We spent the weekend with his family in Park City snowboarding, relaxing, and eating a lot of yummy food. Needless to say I really needed the weekend getaway. I realized how much our "life" has taken over. This is such a small window just for us. I need to start taking advantage of it.... in short I am pretty determined to go on another vacation soon.

Enough about me, more about my lover.
Things may not always be perfect,
and days when words just don't come out right.
but, I love you more and more all the time.
So grateful you were born 26 lovely years ago.


Your wife

Oh, and my sweet parents watched the pups

Dog Lovers

This will make you cry.. but someday in the far far future (my dogs will live forever)..I hope. I know this will bring me comfort :)

I know that just like our friends and family will will see our dogs, cat, and pets again someday. 

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.... "

I am not sure if its just me, but as I get older the years are going by much faster. This year has been a year of growing up. Trey and I are both working grown up jobs (well kinda) and are no longer going to school (thank heavens).

here are some highlights/goals we reached in 2012.. mostly for my records since one of my new years resolutions is to start writing my personal history. 

-Graduated from Utah State University with our bachelors
-Moved in with my parents (not a huge highlight, no offense mom and dad) 
-MOVED out of my parents house into a cute little house in Sugar house
-Landed my dream job at lululemon athletica 
-Certified in TRX
-Trained in mat Pilates 
-Trey got a job at Resorts West in PC 
-Celebrated 2 years of marriage
-Introduced another four legged friend into our family (doc holiday) 
-I started teaching TRX at BURN 
-Trey BUILT a snowboarding box (its a big deal) 

for some reason new year's resolutions give me anxiety. Instead I am going to set goals for my self, and have by whens. Its kinda the same thing but just sounds less generic. 

Trey doesn't like the sound of 2013 (odd number)  but I am hoping for a good year. We're crossing our fingers we make it to Germany this year, and other than that I am not sure what  2013 will bring? a baby? or another four legged friend??? (Joking Abi). We have no huge plans, and this gives me less anxiety. 

Happy 2013
