2 posts within 2 weeks? I must be ill.

Yesterday I turned 25. I started my morning of with a little treat. I made doughnuts! Have you ever done this? It couldn't have been any easier. I took refrigerated biscuit dough, poked a hole in the middle with my finger (or you can cut a whole and have doughnut holes), heated oil in a pan on medium heat, and threw them in to cook. They took about 10 seconds on each side, so they cook very fast. After the were golden brown on each side, I sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar. YUMMMMM.

Everyone in my family was working all day and my parents were driving in from out of town, so I spent most of the day alone just running errands and hanging out. It was nice to relax. I enjoyed a few phone calls from close friends. My parents took us all to dinner at La Bamba, one of my fav Mexican restaurants around here. It was delicious! After dinner we had ice cream cake and I got to open my gifts... which included an iPad 2! I am beyond excited. It will be so nice to have while I travel a lot over the next month and when I am holding our little guy (who, by the way, arrives in 96 days). It was actually really fun to be pregnant on my birthday. I was overwhelmed with joy all day that I am happy, healthy, and expecting. The Lord has blessed us so much! I am looking forward to see what the next year will bring. 

my gifts... and a little peak of my new kitchen.

26 weeks along and feelin good!

6 months down...

Wow, I really suck at this whole blogging thing. All of my friends (you know who you are... coughPAIGEcough) keep bugging me to update this thing.

The truth is:
1) I really don't do anything fun that's worth telling everyone about
2) My husband hates to take pictures.

So where does that leave me? Postless.

Since I am pregnant and I actually have something to talk about with people, I decided to post a few pics of this awesome belly. This Friday I will be 6 months (24 weeks). The time has FLOWN by already! It's kindof freaking me out that the summer is coming to an end because that means fall is coming. Our baby is due November 25th, so it's getting closer and closer. 114 days to be exact.

This whole pregnancy thing has been pretty easy so far. Am I speaking too soon? I have been able to live a pretty normal life and have LOVED being pregnant.

The Cons
- I have graduated from a siugle hamburger to a double hamburger and I went up a size on fries because a small just doesn't cut it anymore. I am ALWAYS hungry!
- Water is the only thing that gives me heartburn... It's been a good excuse to drink pop and sugary drinks.
- I am losing my mind. I can't think of the right words to use and I forget about things from shutting the garage to picking people up for things (sorry I left you at work Kirk).
- I have always been a sweet tooth, but have taken it to a whole new level the past few months.

I have been baking a lot to satisfy these cravings. One night when I was making cookies Mike said, "Are you going through that nesting phase or something?" I replied, "Nope. It's call hunger."

And did I mention that it's a boy? I never officially posted anything, but we found out when I was 16 weeks. I was 99.9% sure it was a girl.... guess I was wrong. Even though I was convinced it was a girl, we are sooo excited to have a boy. He already has a closet full of clothes!

Here are some belly shots, which I am totally inconsistent with taking. Hope you enjoyed the post!
