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!

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!!!
