This is a little dumb, but I love all the food my family has at Thanksgiving. I've had other T-giving dinners and food other places, but there are a few dishes that have yet to be duplicated by anyone not in my mom's side of the family. We're talking sweet potatoes, cranberry salad, stuffing, rolls etc. Nobody can beat my mom's family recipes for Thanksgiving. Another tradition I like is going to serve Christmas lunch at Rest Homes on Christmas day. It's so fulfilling.
2. Who is your biggest role model and why?
3. What is your favorite thing to do with your husband and why?
4. What is one place you want to travel to, when, why?
I'm dying to go on a cruise! We were planning on one this summer, but since we ended up getting pregnant and having to move across country, it just didn't work out. I want to see beaches and islands and get a tan and eat the delicious food. I also want to see Brazil.
I don't really have one. I don't have music loyalties. I really love Carrie Underwood and Rascal Flatts. Also Jon Mclaughlin.
6. What is your favorite book?
Anything by John Grisham. I don't know anything about the law or lawyers, but he's an amazing writer. I really love The Firm and pretty much anything else he writes.
7. Who is your closest friend and why?
Scott. Hands down. He is the only one that really understands me and sticks with me no matter what. I've had alot of other close friends in my life, but they kinda fade in and out. I have a small handful of friends that I love and hope to stay in contact with forever, but life can sometimes get in the way.
8. What is your favorite trait about yourself?
I really have a huge capacity to love and serve. I wasn't always that way. I get so much satisfaction out of serving others, especially taking dinner to people. I feel like I've really learned how to love people no matter what. I think a huge part of that came from my experience teaching Kindergarten.

1. I had so much fun in KS over the weekend. However, I hardly slept and the sleep I got wasn't very good. This was because when you're prego you can't get comfy anywhere. If you think your own bed is uncomfortable, try sleeping in one that's unfamiliar...and smaller.
2. Because I didn't sleep well I came home tired. Now, while we were there I probably got an average of 6-7 hours of sleep a night. Not bad, eh? Remember, I'm pregnant. So, instead of being "just tired" I was EXHAUSTED.
Guess what I did today? I slept.
I went to bed at 10 pm last night. Woke up at 6:15. Took a nap from 8:30-9:30 and another nap from 11:15-12:50. At 7:30 this evening I said to Scott "I'm ready for bed."
Obviously I haven't gone to bed yet, but it's now 8:48 pm and I'm definitely ready. Everything gets exaggerated when you're pregnant. Maybe it's cuz my body is working twice as hard? Who knows.
Doc appointment today. He said I'm on cruise control with this pregnancy. I guess it's a good thing when they don't really have anything to discuss with you because it means that everything is going well. I do have to take the dreaded glucose test sometime this week. Ugh. I plan on not eating sugar for at least two days before I take it. I DO NOT want to take the 3 hour test. Thinking about it makes me want to vomit.
On a lighter note, in 4 weeks I have another appointment. I'll be 32 weeks. After that, 5 weeks til I'm full term. After that, the baby can come anytime he wants. I'm hoping for just after Christmas.
It seems like it's going so fast. Sometimes it goes slow though. Mostly fast. Especially when I think about everything I want to accomplish between now and then. I think it's a good thing I'm not working.
I made a list tonight of all these meals I want to make and put in my freezer. I know we'll probably be taken care of with food for a week or maybe two. But after that? It's so easy to pull something out and pop it in the oven. So in November I will tackle my list of freezer meals and my freezer will be full to bursting of delicious home cooked meals that just have to be cooked. Not to mention it'll give me more things to do! Yay!
I feel like such a mom. And I don't even have a kid...yet.

So we finally had an ultrasound today! It was our "20 week ultrasound" at 26 weeks. I think it actually worked out better because the baby is farther along and more developed so measurements are more accurate. Anyway, I was really bummed because Scott couldn't come. He had class all stinkin day and the ultrasound technician has very limited availability.
It was still very fun for me though! I got to see his heart, brain, spine, ribs, legs, arms, belly, bladder, stomach, etc. Pretty much everything. He was a little active but not too much. He was hiding an arm behind his leg though, and he was playing with his feet near the end. I got to see him open and close his lips and I got to see his eyeball in his eye socket. Pretty awesome! Near the end she just set the wand on my stomach for a second and we watched him move his head. She said it looked like he was dancing. I agree. :-) Seems appropriate coming from Scott and I .
The best part of the whole thing (after having a ton of fun seeing every part of the baby) was when she said that according to measurements he was measuring more at 27 weeks. So she moved my due date up to December 29th. Wahooo!!! She did say that obviously babies just come whenever they're ready, so to not get too excited, but he was measuring bigger than we had thought. Cross your fingers and keep praying for an earlier baby so Scott can be home! :-)
Oh, and she looked at his boy parts to make sure he hadn't changed to a she... She said he was definitely still a boy, and definitely not shy. Enjoy the pictures!!
