Lego My Prego...

I decided it was time to start documenting the ever-growing mass that use to be my abdomen. I'm really rather enjoying being past the "I wonder if she's pregnant or if she's just put on some weight?" phase & actually looking like I have a baby bump! Isn't pregnancy fun :)?!?

I've Joined the Band Wagon!

I've finished reading the first 2 books in the Twilight series, started the 3rd, and am now admitting my addiction & utter anticipation for the movie to be released (like the REST of the world who has read the books)!! But I have to ask, is anyone disappointed that that same guy who played Cedric Diggory is now playing Edward???
He is SO NOT the breath taking beautiful guy, with perfect features & an intoxicating smile that I'd envisioned while reading!!

And the chick they have playing Alice... I was under the impression that her character was like the most beautiful thing EVER- the actress, um not so much! Maybe I'll feel different once I see the movie, but I'm NOT convinced right now!

I've taught him well : )

As many of you know, I've been stocking up on things we'll need for our baby for a LONG time (it was my therapy during the year & a 1/2 that I couldn't get pregnant) & I LOVE finding good deals on things! Over the past 2 years we've acquired a crib, crib mattress, crib bedding, stroller, 2 car seats w/ bases (1 for each car), high chair, porta-crib, swing, and (my favorite) SUPER cute diaper bag. Anthon has always been grateful of my enthusiasm to find things we need for a good price, but hasn't really been that involved in "the hunt" to find stuff. Well, I've been on the constant search for a gliding rocking chair, but could never find one I liked @ a decent price... ANTHON DID!This is Anthon's awesome find (one of his customers was trying to get rid of it before a move)! It's only a year old, & it's like brand new- it doesn't squeak at all when you rock in it and the cushions are really fluffy & comfortable!! I looked it up on Babies'R' to see how much it cost new- $200 for the chair, $100 for the ottoman... we paid $40 for BOTH!! I didn't think I'd like a cherry finish since all the other nursery furniture is white, but this one is too pretty to refinish! I'll see if I still like the color once we have everything put together in the baby's room, if not I'll make it into what I want it :).

Back from TX

I was able to go visit Gwen & her family in Lubbock Texas this past week (since it really was my last week of total, absolute, selfish freedom :). It was my last week of vacation for the year, school starts next week, & once this semester is over I'll have a baby)! I had a lot of fun, but being the retard I am, didn't take very many pictures. Our main project was decorating Sydney's room & the room for her new baby- Both turned out DARLING (check out Gwen's blog to see pictures)!! We went shopping one day & got some DANG good deals on baby clothes! We also indulged in the BEST frozen custard I have ever had- It's from a place called Sheridan's that we visited almost daily! It was great just to hang out & spend the days together- Thanks for having me :)!
I had a lot of fun hanging out with my little buddy, Sydney too!! We watched the GAY Wiggles A LOT (she loves Wally) & The Little Mermaid (one of my favorites growing up)! Plus, we just laughed a lot- She discovered what cross-eyes look like, courtesy of me, & was in hysterics for almost 30 minutes!! She's getting so big everyday, so it was nice just to be with her!
The trip home wasn't exactly thrilling- my flight got delayed not 1, not 2, but 4 HOURS & then there was BAD turbulence for most of the flight home. I did make some use of my time at the airport- I bought Twilight & New Moon from the ONLY gift shop in Lubbock airport (basically because they were the ONLY titles I recognized & they were on sale). All I have to say is, so far it's definitely living up to all the hype!

PS: Gwen, it took me 14 minutes to post this ;)

Compass Restaurant- Mmm!

Anthon's company treated us to dinner at the Compass Restaurant tonight. It was a pretty fun night... More about the experience than anything! It's on top of the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Phoenix, the restaurant is 360 degrees of windows, & it rotates as you sit there so you get a total view of the valley. We were there right at sunset, so it was REALLY pretty!! It was definitely a once in a life time experience and the food was really good- We got an appetizer, salad, entree, & dessert. BUT I doubt we'll be going back with the $85 per person price tag - Thanks Preventive Pest Control for footing the bill :)!

Anthon with his shrimp appetizer!

My entree- NY steak & broccoli!
