It's Alive!


Tyler and I went to our first appt today and we got to hear the baby's heartbeat.  It was so neat when the sound finally could be heard.  I still have a hard time realizing that I have a living thing growing inside.

So You Think You Can Dance?

I had the chance to go the the SYTYCD performance at the E Center with Devrie and her mom. We had so much fun.  It was really neat to see these dances live.  My favorite is "Bleeding Love" with Chelsie and Mark, but the best part was watching Devrie's mom squeal with excitement as soon as they walked on the stage.  I had a great time out with the girls.  Thanks Devrie and Denise!  

I love Chelsie Hightower not just because she is a local, but for the simple fact that she is so much fun to watch.

Pickles No More

I thought pickles were a sure bet to stay down - well they aren't.  I had a great night shopping with my mother-in-law Kelli and my sister-in-law Brooke for clothes that fit. (Yep only two months and already feeling chubby!) My night ended with my head hanging over the toilet losing every last pickle.  Tyler helped my drown my sorrows with a yummy Slurpee! This being sick thing is getting old really fast.

Pregnancy Diet

Right now my staple foods are: Pickles, ice cream and Top Ramen.  Not together of course!  I am having the hardest time keeping foods down at this point, but those three have yet to come back up.  I can't wait for this sickness thing to go away. So, I guess for now I'll just have to keep buying in bulk.

Marie Elaine Wilson 1952 - 2008

Marie passed away on September 10, 2008.  Marie resided in Grand Terrace.  She is survived by her husband Jay, of 35 years: sons Erick and Marc: Father Veater Barton: Sisters Karen Zollinger, Jean Petrilli, and Jackie Peasley.

This week has been a rough one as we lose another close family friend.  My mother and Marie shared a special bond that is hard to describe in words.  Marie and her family have always been like immediate family.  My favorite memory of Marie was when I was 4. I had this Malibu Beach Barbie with the cutest hot pink and black bikini.  They made the same bikini in the little girls size.  I wanted this "Bakini" (as I called it!) so bad. My mom refused to let her 4 year old wear this sassy swim suit.  Sure enough Marie purchased it and put it on me before we went to the beach.  I was the hottest little totty on the beach!

Marie always went above and beyond to spoil us.  She made so many miserable trips in the snow (she hated the cold) just to come see our faces.  I can only imagine the places her and my mom are in now.  Probably in Lake Powell or Hawaii mooning the tourists!

We love you Marie!

Insurance Test from "That really hot place where the devil lives"

Tyler passed the state insurance test last Saturday.  I now have him back from studying non stop.  I would wake up in the middle of the night and he would be in the other room with his face in his notes.  I am so proud of him!  He started his first day of work with the insurance company today.

Knocked up!

It is true.  Tyler and I are expecting in April! We are so excited beside the fact that  I am so sick right now.  I am trying to constantly eat, but nothing even sounds appetizing.  Kinda hard to force feed yourself when you are simultaneously gagging. Does anyone have any good morning sickness (more like all day sickness) solutions?  I feel like I've tried everything.  I am desperate at this point. . .
