26 Weeks!

I'm officially 26 weeks today! I can't believe how fast time has gone by. It seems like just yesterday I was finding out that we were going to have a baby! I went to the doctor for my checkup and she said the baby is doing great! Her heartbeat was perfect and my tummy is a great size for how far along I am. I'm feeling great! It's getting harder to turn in bed or to get off the couch and to tie my shoes, but it's all worth it! I'm getting my 4d Ultrasound done in a couple of weeks and Matthew and I can't wait to see what she looks like now! It's so exciting and with every kick I feel she just makes me smile that much more! It's crazy to feel so strongly about someone you have never even met. I love her to pieces already and I can't wait for her to be here in my arms! :)

Family Movie Night

Tonight is going to be a fun night! Gabe and Holly are coming over and we are all going to meet Chris and Heather at the Edwards Movie Theater right down the street to see NEW MOON! All of us can't wait to see it and its FREE! Matthew and I always get movie tickets for our birthdays and over the years we have saved about 30 movie tickets so we thought why not and invite Gabe, Holly, Chris and Heather for a night at the movies. Our showing is at 7:30 and I can't wait! Well got to go cause Holly and Gabe just got here! :)

So we just got home and I really loved this movie! It was way better than the first! I can't wait for Eclipse!

Crochet & Recline

About 2 weeks ago I wanted to learn how to crochet and I thought my first project should be a baby blanket for my daughter. I called my friend Nicole and asked her to come with me to Joann Fabrics because I had no idea what I needed and since she knew how to crochet she could show me how to crochet and what I would need to get started. I bought the yarn and since I didn't know what size of hook I wanted to use I just bought a pack of different sizes for like 6 bucks. We then went back to her house and she showed me how to crochet. It was tough at first because my fingers were not used to the rhythm of how you do it. Then once I got the pattern down it was hard to keep my yarn tight. That is why the first two or three rows at the bottom of this picture ^
are really loose and the rest is nice and tight. By the second day my hands got used to the movement of things and I could not believe how simple and yet time consuming it really is. It feels good to know that I'm actually making something from scratch and that my first thing I make is for my baby. She is the reason why I wanted to learn and I'm surprised that I never thought of this before. I'm a crafty person and for some reason learning how to crochet never popped in my head of things to do. My Grandma Grumbles loved crocheting. I wonder why I never asked her how to do it while she was still here. If I had asked I would have known how to do all this stuff. Last weekend I went to Michael's with my parents and my mom bought me purple yarn and a Learn To Crochet Book. It has a bunch of different designs and I can't wait to try them out. I want to concentrate on one project at a time, so after I'm done with my blanket I'm going to make a bigger blanket for Matthew and I to share. Then maybe I will make some pot holders for our kitchen. I just can't wait to see the outcome!
Just this Monday Matthew and I went to Big Lots. I have been pricing out nursing chairs and my brother and sister-in-law got a nice Glider at Big Lots so I thought I would go to the one right up the street from my apartment. After Matthew got off work we headed over there and saw the same Glider that Aron and Ashley have. I liked it, but this will be going in our living room and Matthew and I didn't think it would look right with our stuff. We looked around and saw a nice cozy recliner and immediately we thought this is the one. It may not be a Glider, but it will look better and it will be more useful in the long run. It rocks and reclines, so that is good enough for me. We call it the nursing /gaming chair. Matthew loves to play his video games and recline at the same time. It's very comfortable! :)

Matthew and I so far love this seasons Survivor! In the beginning of the season Matthew and I did not like Russell at all. We thought he was a jerk of a player that would mess everything up on our favorite side, which was the Foa Foa tribe (yellow). After a few episodes he slowly became our favorite after he found the first hidden immunity idol. We could not believe that he found it without any clues! This week we were really nervous for him because he became THE ONE that we would like to see win, but his head was on the chopping block because the old Galu tribe (purple) wanted Russell gone. Fortunately, he changed that all around after he found the second hidden immunity idol without any clues again! We were amazed and felt so good that he found it! This has never been done in Survivor! We were nervous that he may not play it at tribal council, but we also knew that he wasn't stupid to not play it if his name was even mentioned to go. Yet still we were nervous. Once he stood up to give Jeff the idol and we saw the faces of the old Galu tribe, we were thrilled! We were laughing so much and loved that now they had to lose a team member because the old Foa Foa tribe all voted for Kelly. I just had to give a thank you to Russell for making last nights episode so enjoyable to watch! :)
