Letters to my Tyson: The Week...

Happy Friday Bubs!

Monday it snowed. I know you know it snowed because I called you whining  that it snowed. ha. We see enough of it in Ohio - it had to follow me to Oregon.  At least it only stayed around till the early afternoon. 

   Before                                        After

Tuesday night I went over to Ashlee's to get my hair trimmed and re-highlighted. She did a fabulous job and I love it. It's nice to have highlights again. And of course what would be a blog post without a scary picture of me (the Before picture - yikes!). ha! 

Wednesday and well the rest of the week I've been water coloring - it's been fun. I couldn't find my water colors from college, but I had my grandma's water color set - and it's worked out awesome. Some of those colors on the palette aren't from me mixing colors - they are from my grandma from the last time she worked on something years and years ago. I think it's really cool to think about what she might have been painting with those colors.  AND AND AND...what else do we see in the picture...oh that's right a JAMBA cup. Halla for the Jamba! Surprisingly enough I've only have it ONCE this week. I will make up for it this weekend. 

Oh...and Wednesday night I hung out with my friend Jocelyn and I totally forgot to get a picture of us. We had a great time catching up and chatting for a few hours! I love it when you can meet up with a friend you haven't seen in forever, like 10 years and pick up where you left off. AMAZING if you ask me!

And what is this??? Oh yes... this is a shout out for your Bubs! OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY CANCELED school on Wednesday due to the weather. CRAZY!

And last but not least...last night...Thursday night...Tiffany came up from Eugene to see me. She is wonderful. We had a GREAT time! We ate dinner at P.F. Changs and got ice cream at 31 flavors (yum) and then hung out at my house for a few hours chatting and looking up baby names on the computer. It was so fun to be able to hangout with her. Before she left we had to get a picture. Don't I just look Round and Jolly! hahaha. I think the sweater adds a little to the roundness -but that's okay, because there is a baby bear inside of me.  Tiffany and I were laughing at how I tower over her. Tis true. haha. 

So there we have it...It's been a good week. I've had some fun times. I am excited it's the weekend! Super Bowl Sunday Baby! woot woot! I hope that your Friday is fabulous!!

Letters to my Tyson: The Weekend...

Hi Bubs! The weekend was good - but I didn't do a good job of taking many pictures. So here is what I have to share with you...
Friday night Mommers and I baby sat the Hayden Bug - and it was fun. He loves Grandma so much, it's so dang cute. We played and played and giggled a lot - we even put him the bathtub for a little while. Good times were had. And of course I had a Jamba too! And it was yummy! And yes that's a scary picture of me - but I had to document the goodness. 

Saturday was fabulous - I didn't take any pictures. But there were some highlights...
1. shopping with Mommers
2. buying some dang cute baby clothes (can't wait to show you)
3. going to P.F. Changs - it was really good - we got some Harvest Vegetable Egg Rolls for an appetizer and they were the bomb - I am craving them this very minute (that's like my first craving being preggers...haha.)
4. talking to you on the phone like 15 times
5. laying in bed and watching a movie with Mommers


And onto today...Sunday
It's been a nice relaxing day. 
Jeremy, Naomi and Hayden came over tonight and stayed for a little while.
We played for like a minute - Hayden was more into walking around the house and playing with the magnets on the fridge.

We also ate some yummy cake! You would have thought it was good. Mommers made the cake and I made the frosting. The frosting turned out a lot better then I thought it would. It was much better than using a can of frosting - that's for sure. This is Jeremy saying Hi to you and he is wishing you were with us to eat cake

So that was the weekend. I love you and miss you! 

Have a Happy Monday!  Don't have too much fun without me. 

Love Love Love u.

Letters to my Tyson: The past 24 hours...

Bubs! I've only been home in Portland a little over 24 hours. And even though we've talked like 20 times already... there are still pictures to share with you. 

Last night after dinner, I think Hayden thought he would help grandma clean up the kitchen floor - he went and got the Shark cleaner and started going at it. You would have loved it!

Today wasn't too eventful - I was tired all day long - so I just lounged around. But no worries - I went to one of our favorite places...Jamba! And it was Jambarific! I got the Strawberry Surf Rider and it was del-ish. The only thing that would have made it more glorious, would have been to have you there with me to enjoy one. I still think it's so lame Columbus doesn't have Jamba. I will try and drink one daily while I am here. 

Remember how I told you about the cat in my Better Homes and Garden magazine. Well here he is. Thanks to photo booth I got to pose with him. I named him Mr.Biggels and I love him. I think he may be my #1 favorite cat now, yup I said it. I think I like him even more than chub chub's. 

Well Lovey...that's all that's going on. I think I am going to make some carmel popcorn with my mom and watch t.v. before bed. 

I love you and Miss you...

We found out...

(baby bear at 20 weeks)

I had my doctors appointment today which was very exciting and we didn't have to wait long at all for the doctor to call us in. I did the regular routine of peeing in a cup, blood pressure and weight. I have officially gained back weight. In my first trimester I lost 15 lbs. But I've upped it back to a 10 lb weight gain - not too shabby. We only had to wait minutes and our doctor was in to see us. I have to say that our Doctor is Amazing! He's done every heart beat check-up and every ultra sound and he is always so reassuring and comforting, which we love. He was all hyped up for us to check out our baby. I must say, our baby is way cute in my belly. Our little one is doing great and everything looked wonderful - Baby Bear was very wiggly - and when it came down to looking for the goods, it didn't want to be still - well no worries we were lucky and got a good quick glimpse at what would resemble a BOY! YEA! The doctor tired a few more angles - we kinda got one more little peek - but like I said, he was wiggly - the doctor even checked to make sure that it wasn't the umbilical cord- and everything came out clear - so BOY OH BOY, We are so excited and we haven't stopped smiling since we found out. Yea for our baby BOY bear that will be here in May!
