a condensed version of my weekend

Good grief Charlie Brown. I feel like this belly of mine has gotten so big that it's not possible for it to get any bigger, but then I know that this little one is going to at least double in size, which gets me thinking... is there really room in there for that?! I don't think so. It's an amazing thing, the body. I've thought about it a lot and It's all so incredible. My body -right now- is making another human being, a human being this little person is only about to begin her life in this world and I get to teach her everything I know.  Sometimes I think I'm crazy when I get too deep into thoughts like these, but I cannot seem to stop thinking about how amazing pregnancy is.

Last week we had our 4D ultrasound -they call it 4D because we could actually see her moving, she was moving her lips, rubbing her eyes, making pout-y lips -the kind of pout-y lips that I just want to smooch, and her cheeks are the chubbiest -she gets that from her daddy's side- I could have watched this girl all day long. Oh how 9 weeks seems like such a short amount of time till we see this girl, I cannot tell you how excited I am, it's the best. But, I can wait the 9 weeks because we still have so much left to do!

I also cannot get over the cute clothes babies wear, all things small are the absolute best and always seem to be the cutest. I love these OshKosh outfits that she got in the mail the other day, I'm not sure you can get any cuter than OshKosh, I've always been in love with their kid overalls and jean jackets, oh man.
I have absolutely nothing to complain about. This weekend was amazing, one of those that you remember for the rest of your life and you tell your kids about. This weekend the Phoenix, Arizona temple was dedicated. Saturday we had a cultural celebration, and Sunday was the dedication. I had the awesome opportunity of participating in the cultural celebration and I words cannot describe all my feelings. It was amazing, the Spirit was so strong, and I have never felt to much power and strength.
I also have to add this puppy picture, Benz was the cutest, I gave him a mow hawk and he looked so cool and tough on camera, my favorite part... this homeless boy is no longer homeless and now has a home!

I hope you had an awesome weekend!

maternity top: target (similar), half cardi: target (similar), maternity jeans: ross, flats: jcpenny (similar), bracelet: c/o Tiny Dazzles, watch: no longer sold (similar)

Watching: Gilmore Girls and I feel like I'm back in middle school. My favorite part though, watching the shows in order, because you never knew if the episode you were watching was really supposed to be next.

Crocheting: Trying to finish up the baby blessing blanket. I took a month break with it, because every time I went to the store my yarn was on sale -not a good thing because I always use a coupon and you can't when it's on sale. 

Anticipating: Getting baby girl's nursery ready. Brand is officially on fall break starting next week and we've got lots of plans to get things ready. Number one: painting her room. 

Listening to: The cool air pass by our front door. This week has been heavenly in glendale, we haven't used our air conditioner since Halloween. -Since Halloween!

Thinking about: All the things I need and want to get done before this baby gets here. I feel like I have so much to do and not very much time to finish it. Yikes. 

Feeling thankful: For this weather and this time of year. I love holiday parties and I love being with family, this time of year seems so magical. 

Wanting: A double chocolate-y chip frap from starbucks, I had one a few weeks back and I think it's time for another. 

Enjoying: This time with Brand and me, trying to soak in all the time where it's just the two of us. 

Wondering: What this baby is going to look like. We have a 3D ultrasound next week and I really hope she cooperates, I cannot wait to see her little face. Gahhh.

Smelling: My cinnamon wall plug. At the beginning of this pregnancy it made me want to hurl, but I'm really loving it now!

Wearing: These maternity leggings, and really any shirt that fits. I've been in the habit of wearing my shirts over my belly when I'm home. So much more comfortable.

Following: What seems to be like a whole bunch of people who are having babies, which in turn makes me want to snuggle my baby.

Feeling: Like when she gets here that I'm not going to want to share her. Excuses: Oh sorry, my phone died. I lost your number. They don't allow visitors this time of year. I don't know, I'll keep coming up with more excuses. Ha!

a condensed version of my weekend

I feel like this is the first Halloween I actually participated, because it was. I'm not a creative person, but I've always wanted to do those couples costumes -you know, the ones where you can tell a lot of effort went into it, how do these people come up with such creative things?  This year we participated, but we weren't one of those creative couples, and thanks to my girl Abby I was able to have an awesome costume. Anyways, it all turned out and it was fun not being a total stick-in-the-mud this time around. Can I also tell you how much fun it is to have friends. Brand has a group of friends that he studies with -he sees them more than he sees me- and we got together with them and had a fun little Halloween party.

Last week I had my first since Russia moment. We went to a mexican food restaurant and then smelt like mexican food when we left -which I was not about to be a part of. So we went to starbucks, because obviously I would rather smell like coffee -really though, I love the smell of coffee. And here I had my first frap since Russia, I hated to do it, but it sounded so delicious and what my baby wants my baby gets.

This week I also finished making our baby's crib blanket. I'm in love with it, and it matches her bedding perfectly! I cannot wait to wrap up her little self in it and snuggle her.
Saturday the Phoenix, Arizona temple open house came to a close. I visited and walked through the temple every week, but still somehow wish I could have gone more. It was such a fun experience being able to go with family and friends, I love the temple and how beautiful it is.  -Don't mind my looking like a fatty, the wind was blowing juuuust enough to make my dress spread out, I need to be better at these pregnancy poses.

Happy Monday
