Early Christmas Present for YOU!

Well, the families have been informed, Adam and I have had time to let it sink in, and now it's time to let my blogging family know what I am having!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are having a little......

Adam and I are sooooooooooo excited!!!!!!!!!!!! It's the best christmas gift ever :) We are so thankful that she has 2 kidneys, 4 chambers of her heart, a bladder, lips, that my umbilical cord is indeed nourishing her, that she has 2 feet, 2 legs, 2 arms, and overall is just a HEALTHY LITTLE GIRL! It's funny how when you are in the room to get the ultrasound that the you are so focused on what it is that you forget about all the health stuff. Which is the most important part.

The only tiny red flag & prayer request is that my placenta and cervix are a little too close together. Well, a lot too close together (about 1 cm apart). If it doesn't move apart more it could possibly cause some complications. I have another follow up ultrasound in 3 weeks, so if you could all be praying that my body does what it needs to do, that would be much appreciated.


Adam, Krystle , and Ellie!

An Email I Recieved

Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community.
The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.

Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours.
Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times, he still was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, three children: John Dough, Jane Dough and Dosie Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.

The funeral was held at 350 for about 20 minutes.

If this made you smile for even a brief second, please rise to the occasion and take time to pass it on and share that smile with someone else who may be having a crumby day and kneads a lift.

Isn't this HILARIOUS?!?! Love it!

We're Back!!!

I can't say how happy I am to just be sitting here on my bed blogging. It is so relaxing, and I feel like I am turning a corner, and am definitely gonna get back to being my old self again....the self where I blog more than once every two weeks!

We just got back from Santa Fe, New Mexico on Monday night. It was GREAT and MUCH needed! Adam and I had such a good time talking up a storm & goofing around. We all need that little break every once in a while, right?! So, here is a recap:

-We left on Friday night and got to Santa Fe around 1am. We were pooped! Not to mention a huge snow storm was coming in, and we had NEVER driven in the snow! SHEESH! We were a little on the edge of our seats, and just a wee bit stressed...but we made it none-the-less.
-On Saturday we hung out with my aunt, uncle, and cousins, and then headed off to our resort, which was VERY nice! We were able to spend a lot of time just sitting around talking about our goals for this coming year. Adam and I just LOVE doing that. It keeps us focused.
- Sunday we hung out in the town (it was sooo cold!) and went to little shops, and ate a TON! It's funny how when you go on vacations how much you eat!! I feel like those are the main events of the day... nothing to complain about though :)
-On Monday, we were suppose to have a leisurely morning, and then head home. HOWEVER, when we woke up, we opened the window to tons and tons of snow!!! It was soooo awesome, but it made the freeway we were suppose to take home really dangerous, so we had to go another WAY longer way to get back. Our car broke down on us about an hour and a half before we made it home (note that this was an 11 hr trip now!) ....COME ON!!!! But it magically started up again and we thankfully made it home safe after midnight.

This week we have just been going non-stop with car repairs and all of that, and we are in need of another vacation!!! But, you guys are a little escape from my reality, so thank you dearly. And I took some pictures of my belly!!!!!! Finally!

We were walking through town and laughed HARD at this!! I know how it's REALLY pronounced, but we were calling it the "Creepery"- Ha ha!-Needless to say, we didn't go in there.
All bundled up- we went to a little pizza shop on the 3rd story of a plaza and it was so cool!

Gotta love the timer on cameras!
A beautiful picture of the townAdam and I playing hangman & tic tac toe at the restaurant :)
My familyMy aunts Ecuadorian (spelling?!) Christmas Tree! How awesome is that?Adam's belly picture!

My long awaited tiny bump!!!

There you have it everyone. A very LONG recap of our time :) Only 4 more days as of tomorrow til we find out what "IT" is!!!!! Ahhhh!! Can't wait :)

Love, Krystle

3 Years

We are going outta town people! And the forecast calls for snow :) I'm so way beyond excited about this. When we live in Arizona and the most we have to look forward to during Christmas time is a cloudy day, it gets really pathetic! So, here is to a real white christmas!!!

Adam and I are celebrating 3 years of marriage. It's crazy how the time flies by so fast. I never thought that I would be married for 3 years, and pregnant with our first child by age 23! Craziness. But it is so awesome, and such a blessing. I am married to my best friend, and honestly, there is nothing better than doing life with that person. We are planning on having an amazing time, and soaking up all the alone time we can get! I will be sure to post many many pictures upon our return :) And I know. No belly pics yet. I have taken some, but they are just not very good looking. It will be a happy day when it finally happens!!

On another note, did you notice my little meter off to the right?! By the time we get back, we will only have 6 days until we know what we are having! I can't wait!!! Those of you who haven't placed your bets go ahead, because it's getting to be crunch time people! Remember how I was saying that I didn't have any hunches? Well, I still don't...BUT...I can only see myself having a girl! I tried so hard the other night to imagine what it would be like to have a boy, but I couldn't! But who knows...it's all just one HUMUNGUS mystery....oh, and by the way, we aren't telling anyone what it is until Christmas! We are waiting until then to tell my parents & Adam's parents, so I would feel like they were a little cheated if I posted it on my blog :) So, consider it a present from our family to yours, and look for my on Christmas! ....that's not to say that I won't post before then too :)

Well, I'm off to get ready to go! Have an awesome weekend everyone.

Love, Krystle

Just some random thoughts....

I haven't posted in a few days, so I decided that there is no better time than right now! I don't have too much to say, so bare with me in all my randomness.

Pregnancy is definitely weird. Weird but good. There are sooo many mixed emotions involved...one second you are TOTALLY excited and wishing that you were already about to pop the baby out, and the next you are really scared, doubtful, overwhelmed, etc. I don't like the rollercoaster all that much. But, I'm glad that now I have more happy days than overwhelming days! And all the changes with your body...don't even get me started!!! Weird, gross, uncomfortable, inconvenient,..you name it! I'm definitely in an awkward stage.Thankfully, I am feeling much better now though. No more nausea, (well almost none) just more fatigue & headaches...which are bliss compared to throwing up!

Adam and I are going on a vacation next weekend. We can not wait!!! We take little trips pretty often, but it just seems like it has been FOREVER since our last one. People keep asking if it's the "last big one" we are going on....COME ON PEOPLE!!! Of course not. I plan on taking many many more. I'm going to try and not buy into the theory that my life ends once the baby comes...call me what you want (naive, unexperienced, etc), but I figure that if I start out with an optomistic attitude about things, they may actually turn out that way :) So, anyways, we are going to Santa Fe, NM. My aunt lives there and got us a SWEET deal on a really nice resort! Thanks aunt Tammy!!!

P.S. Ashley, I just can't seem to come around to taking that belly picture. Don't worry everyone (that's assuming that I am the center of your universe, and you were worrying about it!), but I am going to take one when I actually get ready one day and look semi-acceptable for a picture...maybe this Saturday when Adam and I go on a HOT date!

P.S.S. Did anyone watch the office tonight?! Adam is playing basketball with some guys tonight, so I got to enjoy it all by my lonesome :( It was a pretty funny one.

P.S.S.S. Has anyone seen the new LOST sneak peek?!?!?! I almost peed my pants when I was watching it I was sooo excited! I never wanted it to end!!!

Well, I realize that everyone and their mom is going to post a thanksgiving post, and I sure didn't want to be left out of the club! Ha :) Adam and I had a VERY eventful thanksgiving, and had a ton of fun with our families. Last year Adam was sick with food poisoning, so neither of us got to be with our families. Thankfully, this year totally made up for it! I would say that my thanksgiving officially started on Wednesday night when my sister-in-law and I made 2 casseroles & 2 pies. I was beyond exhausted, and really wanted to give up a few times, but she kept pushing me til we were done! Thanks Tiffany :) It all turned out great. Wednesday night we spent the night at my parents, woke up, and then I helped my mom some with the cooking, and we had lunch there. Then, around 2:45 or so we drove over to Adam's parents for round 2!!! Needless to say we were totally stuffed and I'm sure that my belly grew....not due to the baby, but to all the yummy food! Here are some pictures of our time. (Of course they are a little out of order..I'm so bad at putting the pictures in right!)

Pumpkin Pie! Yum!!

Now, don't tell me Thanksgiving is ONLY for humans...Steve & Sophie have a lot to be thankful for too! And since we are thankful for them, we gave them lots & lots of turkey :)
We hope that you all had a great thanksgiving. The Lord is truly so good, and there is soooo much to be thankful for!
Love, Krystle

Project Turkey

Every year at our church, we do a little something called "Project Turkey". It's a really fun ministry to be a part of. We get to take a box of food to a family in need, equipped with a full thanksgiving dinner. We are a part of the high school ministry, and we drive some of the students around to deliver the boxes. This year, we had some of my small group girls come along! They chatted up a storm (of course), but they are a TON of fun to be around :) Here are some pictures of our time. Oh yeah, and also just some random ones...we finally got a new camera!!! Yay!
P.S. Ashley, never fear, Belly pics are coming soon!

Family Pictures

Our friend Jennifer, well, I say friend, but she is more like family, offered to take our whole family's Christmas pictures :) Luckily, I went down a little early and she took some awesome ones of the dogs & I with the best lighting before the rest of my family got there. Then she did some individual, smaller family pictures....she is building her portfolio right now, and I'd say that she is ALREADY pretty stinkin' awesome! Here are some of them she just sent over to me....

Thanks Jennifer. They look simply Fantastic!
P.S. My computer is being really weird, and left little dots on the pictures! They aren't that way when I look at them on my computer...I am saying this as a disclaimer so that you know that Jennifer's work is amazing...just not my computer!

A Baby Changes Everything

I thought the title of this post was fitting. It's true in so many ways. In light of the upcoming season though, I heard a song called "A Baby Changes Everything" by Faith Hill. I absolutely LOVE it. She captures what Mary must have been thinking when she was pregnant with Jesus. It's really cool to think about the season through that perspective. I have so much respect for Mary. Though she didn't have a choice but to have Jesus, she was still faithful to what God wanted her to do.

Since being pregnant, I have been thinking a lot. Mostly being nervous about my ability to be a mom. I said before that I really want to lead my child by example. Now, I am NOT naive to think that I will do everything right, but there are certain things that I feel should be in place. And all of these things have to do with my faith. It's weird. Lately, I have really noticed my timidness (is that a word?) towards being open about my faith. For example, I find that when I'm in church and I'm enjoying a worship song, I feel embarassed about lifting my hands in fear of what people will think. Or when I'm around friends and I want to just talk about how Good the Lord is, I hold back because, again, I'm afraid that they will think I'm lame or not really know or understand how I'm feeling. The question that is always popping in my head is, "Is this how I want my child to feel about their faith? Do I want them to hold back in fear of PEOPLE?!" The answer-ABSOLULETY not. My faith in Christ is what makes me who I am. And hopefully it's what makes my child who they are too.

I was telling a few of the high schoolers last night that I love the song by Third Day "Nothing Compares". It talks about how nothing compares to greatness of knowing Jesus & having a relationship with him. NOTHING... The approval of people, my posessions, my appearance, the things that I enjoy,etc. When I first became a christian, I remember putting my headphones on and just sinking in all of those sweet & precious words about Jesus in my 5 worship songs I found. I listened to them over and over. I secluded myself from all of my friends, from everything, just so that I could have MORE of Jesus. My life felt so FILLED with joy & gratitude that someone would sacrifice themself for ME. What an amazing feeling. Truly, nothing compares to that satisfaction. Jesus has been humbling me lately with that memory. There is nothing in my life that can possibly compete wtih Him. He is where all my happiness lies.

So, today, Mary inspires me. Her faithfulness, her dedication, and her sacrifice (knowing that she will have to give her innocent Son over to pay for the sins of the world. I want to be selfless like that. Genuiness is what truly attracts. So, when I feel like lifting my hands in praise, or shouting at the top of my lungs about how the Lord is soooo good and above everything else, I'm going to do it. Am I going to worry about people thinking that I'm corny or cliche?? Nope. There won't be a hint of that. I will leave you with the Third Day song that brings me to my knees EVERYTIME.

Guessing Game???????

The date is set! We are finding out what we are having on December 22nd. I absolutely CAN NOT WAIT!!! All the old wives tales say that I'm having a girl, but are those things ever right?! Probably not. So, I decided to open it up to you guys....and I would be very interested to see what you all think I'm having :) Adam and I have no clue. I have no "feelings" either way. I'm trying not to want one or the other more either, that way I'm just over-the-moon over whatever it is! I even had a dream that I had the baby, and the doctor said, "It's a boy!", and then a few minutes later, it turned into a girl! Ha ha! I'm not even partial in my drems. I will definitely post that day and let everyone know what "IT" is.

So, the floor is open people.......

Is it an ABRAM or an ELLIE?????????

Til next time...

Love, Krystle

It's Christmas Time in the City!

I can't even begin to explain to you how excited I am about the christmas season being so near! Well, who am I kidding, I am ALREADY listening to christmas music! Yesterday I turned on the radio only to hear christmas carols....from that point on I decided that it's ok for me to break out all of my own cd's and listen to them religiously! I do enjoy thanksgiving as well, but for some reason Turkey just doesn't give me the same warm & fuzzy feeling :)
In other news, I got to see our sweet little baby yesterday! I had an ultrasound and he/she was just going crazy! It was doing flips, pushing itself off and switching positions....it had the ultrasound technician and I cracking up! She couldn't get the measurements she was trying to get for the longest time; fortunately for me :) I just got to stare at our little miracle for so much longer...if only I could actually feel all that movement! I can't wait.
If you haven't noticed already, I'm well past the "freaked-out" stage and into the SUPER EXCITED stage! It's kind of hard knowing that I will be in a different boat then a lot of my friends, but at the same time, how can you be too upset about meeting and caring for the amazing baby that you and the one you love made?!?! I'd say it's pretty impossible. I am a little over 3 months now...as you can see from my little meter (top right)! And my belly has popped just a little bit. Unfortunately our camera is still not working, so I can't post any pictures :( It doesn't really matter though because I'm at that awkward chubby stage...the one where people just think you are really bloated...so glamorous!
Oh, and by the way, I have already had people tell me "what to do" or "what not to do" while being pregnant/having the baby/during labor/..and the list goes on. And let me tell you it is NO BUENO people! I love their insight & deeply appreciate it, but everyone is different...your way will most likely NOT be my way. Ok, I'm off my pedistool. Thanks for listening :)

A Tribute to the One I Love

Here he is. My husband. Adam. Lately I have been realizing my deep deep love for this man. So, this is a post in honor of this man I am priveledged to call my husband, best friend, life partner, father of my babies, companion, and the list goes on...
1) I love that he is a great man of God, and in this world, that is extremely hard to find. He challenges me.
2) I love that he is a good listener. He really wants to know and cares about what I have to say and what others have to say.
3) I love that he asks me, "What do you think about that?"- this was hard for me at first, not coming from a background where people actually wanted to know that- but now that it has been asked too many times to count, I absolutely LOVE it.
4) I love that he has convictions that he doesn't waver on-it really shows me his self-control & integrity.
5) I love that when I look in the mirror (especially lately) and just feel fat, he can reassure me like no other. I always feel beautiful to him.
6) I love that the whole time I have been pregnant so far, he has been making all the food- I mean ALL of it- washing the dishes, cleaning the house, and telling me that my only job is to take care of myself and relax...I am living in a dream world people!
7) I love it that when I think about him, I still get overwhelmed by how much I love him.
8) I love that when I watch girly movies, I am never jealous of the romances...mine totally ROCKS the socks off of all those :)
9) I love it that he gained 30 pounds after we got married! All that good eatin'!
10) I love it that he grows his beard out and loves it! He doesn't even have to participate in no-shave November this year, he has been rockin' his beard for about 6 months now!
....alright everyone, I will stop being so lovey dovey. But, sometimes you just can't help it. Especially when you are married to someone as awesome as my husband!
Until next time....

It's been TOO LONG!

Wow. I think I set a record for myself on the "lack of blogging" meter. We have been so busy lately with all the new changes going on! We found out we were having a baby while we were packing up our apartment to move into a new place, we then moved into that new place, and are now trying to finish un-packing everything, all while trying to adjust to this new life we are entering into...talk about emotion overload! Hopefully soon it will start settling down a bit.

Unfortunately at this time, I don't feel like baby talk. I have a lot to say, but honestly, I'm tired of talking about it! Don't get me wrong, I love my little baby, but when you get pregnant it seems like that's the only thing that people want to talk to you about. So, I will leave that for a later post :)

Oh, and my camera broke, so new pictures of our place & things won't come for a while. Forgive me! We do really love our new place though. It's not the typical apartment layout which is nice. It feels like a little home :) Adam and I have been talking a lot about being parents. The responsibility of it all hits pretty fast. We feel really convicted about our own lives. We really want to teach our child by example...not the "do as I say, not as I do" stuff. It's hard! It's important for us to become more focused on integrity and discipline in order to accomplish any of this! Obviously I'm not naive to think that I will have it "all down" by the time the baby comes, ya right! But even to be a few steps in the right direction won't hurt by any means.

So, those are just a few minor updates. We still haven't hooked up the internet at our new place so I will post just as soon as I can!

Much Love to you ALL!

Sometimes plans don't work like we expect them to. We have high hopes, and try really hard, but I think that God has something else in mind. For example, my plan was to get 100% out of debt in just a few months, save up a 3-6 month emergency fund, complete nursing school, and save up a huge down-payment for our first home. Adam and I have been so incredibly excited about this plan for a long time now and have been making some GREAT head-way. But, God threw in a little something to rock our boats...

I'm Pregnant!!!

I suppose that's not a little something, but a BIG something! We found out almost 2 weeks ago, and were in complete shock for the first few days. This was totally NOT planned....not an accident (because I don't want my kid to think it was an accident!).

So here we are, almost 2 months pregnant and I just found out!!! Ahhhhhh!!!! It's crazy, but very cool. We are trying to adjust as much as we can to this new life we are about to enter, but we still feel VERY in the dark.

Prayers are needed people! We are excited, nervous, scared, apprehensive, happy, ....you name it. And I am just a FLOOD OF EMOTIONS :)

Signing off,
Adam, Krystle and baby Porter

Birthday Post

So, September 28th (Sunday) was my 23rd birthday! Unfortunately I didn't take a lot of pictures, but I will tell you about some of the highlights :)

My birthday started on Friday. My awesome friend Alexa made dinner for Adam and I, AND cleaned up :) Love it! Then we all hung out played games, and she made a yummy strawberry dessert...my favorite! We also watched the McCain & Obama debate...which was completely frustrating...but that's another topic that I will not even go into since I love all of you and want you to continue to read my blog.

Then on Saturday, Adam and I went first thing in the morning to go buy a gun....I know...some of you may be thinking, "No way. Adam and Krystle are SOOOO not the gun-type."...But hear me when I say we are hard-core, people!! Ha ha! Just kidding :) It's mostly because we didn't feel ENTIRELY safe in the new apartments we are moving into & wanted further protection. AND it will be cool to go shooting :) And wait...let me get this right....we got a Smith & Wesson 357 Magnum Revolver. Wow...I impress myself! ok, onto the rest of the day...

After that, we went to this AWESOME little brunch place in old "snooty-town" Scottsdale, which I love! It was totally a girly place, and it was a different feel being there with Adam instead of a girl since he was making fun of it the whole time :) But very fun! Then we went to go see Ghost Town. I wasn't all that impressed, but it had it's moments. Meanwhile, the whole day Adam is saying that he has this GREAT surprise for me that he KNOWS I will love. So, all day I was asking him "Is this the part I'm going to love?!?!?!". After the movie, we were so exhausted, ya know, since were super old and not used to having that much fun in one day!, that we came home to rest for a while....now that I write that, I feel SUPER lame for coming home.....I mean come on, I'm 23 for goodness sakes!!! After our little rest, Adam and I went to a Diamondbacks game...I was so sure that this was the surprise that he thought I would love, but it wasn't. We were walking into the stadium, and Adam said, " Ok, are you ready for the surprise?!" I said yes, and this is what the BIG surprise was.....

He said, "Well, with the tickets we bought, we get to get all the food we want during the whole game through the 7th inning!!!!!" - Bahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!

Now keep in mind, to me this was TOTAL music to my ears. And yes, I did feel like somewhat of a Fatty!!!!!....However, I am a total junk food junkie! Love it! I love candy, chips, soda, you name it...anything bad for me is what I love most. Leave it to my husband to give me such a practical surprise :)...Not a night at a 4-star hotel....not a fancy dinner out by a lake.....an ALL YOU CAN EAT SPECIAL!!! I will hold onto this story forever :)

I'm soooo tired of writing now, but on Sunday we went over to my parents and spent some good quality time over there. I got really sick by the time the afternoon hit and continued my sickness through Tuesday night, but all-in-all my birthday was VERY enjoyable. Glad to be 23!!

Me playing a racing game....And I'm not sure why I look so weird...I just do.
Adam being very intense

Again, sorry for the COMPLETE lack of photos. But we forgot our camera for 1/2 of the time.

Revenge of the Dogs

Every so often, it seems like Steve & Sophie like to get back at us for leaving them in the bathroom all day. Today was one of those days. When I open the door, they both have the look of pure excitement on their faces...it's like they knew what they were doing. I thought I'd let you in on the secret life of our dogs when we leave the house....

This is how you know they were up to something...
The Damage
The Culprits: Steve & Soph
It always gives me a good laugh though :) ....and one more thing...don't judge me because my bathroom is so messy...I don't always live like this.

Simply Pooped

I have been working 12 hour shifts for the last 4 days straight (Wed-Sat). I still have 2 more 12 hour shifts to go (while my co-worker I am working for is basking in the warm sun & ocean breeze in Hawaii!....and no, I'm not jealous one bit...Ha ha! Ya right)Then today, Adam and I drove down 3 hours to Sierra Vista, Az for my niece's 1st birthday. She ended up getting really sick and had to leave her own party to go to the urgent care :( On the way there, my car over-heated, and we had to sit in the sun for a little over an hour waiting for it to cool down so that we could work on it. We just got back not too long ago, and needless to say I am pooped. It has been a long 5 days and I have to just tough it out for 2 more! I'm sure that my blogging inspirations will come back to me once my brain is done being fried by everything else this world demands of me :) I find that if I don't just blog about SOMTHING, then I won't blog until I have something to say, and that ends up being WAY too much in between. So, I am doing this both for you & for me :) Hope everyone's weekend has been GREAT!

Love, Krystle

A Tribute to The Office

In light of the new season of the office starting September 25th (Yay!!) I decided to post some videos to make everyone laugh! Ha ha ha! I did. If you have not followed the office so far, do not fret my friends, you have 9 WHOLE days to watch all 4 seasons! And believe me, you will LOVE them.

Oh, I almost forgot! I am just BASKING is my 7 comments from my last post:) We have broken the 6 comment streak people! I am at a loss of words. I'd like to thank all of you, who have commented so faithfully. If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't be where I am today. So, thank you, thank you , THANK YOU! Ha ha!

Love, Krystle

Monday, September 15, 2008


A while back, (I can't even remember how long ago!), I posted a blog that said that I was planning on getting a little bit "craftier". I'm not very good at following up sometimes, and I just finished a project today with my mom & sister, so since it was fresh on my mind I decided to fill you all in. We went to Joann's fabric store, we picked out fabric, thread, and stuffing, and we made pillows! I was a litte apprehensive at first because I have NEVER sewed ANYTHING in my life, but everything turned out much much better than expected :) I wanted to post some pictures so that you all knew that I actually followed up and did something I said I would do on my blog! I'm not a pro, but I think this one was a success.

What I started with...
The SUPER CUTE pattern
This is fuzzy, but I wanted to show you my seam :)
The Finished product! Love it!
Love you all,
