We Caved...

And saw this last night...

Yup we finally saw Twilight - we hit up the cheap movie theater last night - and when I say Cheap theater $2.00 a person. Can't be that.  We ate a huge yummy bag of over priced popcorn and candy and watched the movie while we reminisced about reading the books-trying to actually remember what happened. It's been a while since we've read the books. Yes you read that correctly....WE. Don't act surprised Tyson read each book in like 3 hours - yeah he's pretty much AMAZING. To be honest, Tyson read all 4 books, I read the first 3. And even though we own all 4 books - I just couldn't get myself to read book 4. And I am SO GLAD I didn't. Yup you read that right too. The Ending of the series SERIOUSLY? I thought it was stupid. Tyson just told me how it all went. I Love him. Only part of it ended how I was hoping it would, but that's just me - I know so many Twilight lovers that thought the ending was just perfect. To each there own. But besides that, we had a fabulous time and we thought the movie was pretty great. We even really liked all the characters. I still wish Edward was a little cuter and I didn't think of Jacob as such a 'pretty boy'. haha. But I'm over it. We gave it two thumbs up. Obviously books are always better than a movie. But the next movie New Moon should be pretty darn good. It almost makes me want to re-read the books and maybe even read book 4 Breaking Dawn. 
I said Almost.

Lovey Dovey weekend -turned Fat Fatty Love Fest

What do you get when you go away for a quick weekend to St. Louis, seeing amazing friends, eat lots of yummy food and have a great time? That would be our Lovey Dovey V. day weekend! That's right, we took off last Friday when Tyson got done with school and headed to St. Louis to spend the weekend with our friends Valerie and David. 

cute couples

Saturday ( we slept in and then for our Lovey Dovey dinner we went to an all you can eat Brazilian Restaurant. (I forgot to take pictures - we were to busy eating). I thought it was good - but Tyson thought it was oh so super yummy - he said it took him back to his mission days in Brazil. Once we stuffed ourselves full - we headed back to Valerie and David's apartment - where we vegged out - and that's when our Lovey Dovey weekend turned into our Fat Fatty Love Fest. The rest of our evening was spent talking, eating more food and staying up way late playing games. 

eating yummy pizza
and of course a Fat Fatty Love Fest would not be complete without AMAZING FONDUE!

playing games

Probably not the best group shot - but it had to be documented. ha.

We had such a great time in St. Louis. Sadly, Tyson didn't get President's day off. what's up with that? So we headed back to Columbus Sunday afternoon. But we were happy with the time we had. Indeed it was a quick weekend. 
But we wouldn't have wanted to Celebrate our 
Fat Fatty Love Fest any other way! Thanks Val and David for a fun weekend!

the end.

Orange drink day...

Today I went in for my Glucose Screen - many know that it's a blood test that should be done between 24-28 weeks of pregnancy that screens for pregnancy induced diabetes and anemia. And for those of you who didn't know that, well you just learned something new. I got lucky and when I went in for my 20 week check-up they gave me the bottle of orange sugar stuff and told me to just come back in when ever between my 24-28 weeks. And so I choose today as my Glucose day. 

Here's the play by play...
the bottle of orange sugary liquidness - it smelled like orange pop...

gulping it down... you have to drink it in 5 minutes or less. So I just chugged it...

all done. It was tasty...

showing off my war wound...

I was totally going to document my blood being taken, but we forgot to take the camera. So let me share with you how it went. Once the orange stuff has been taken, you wait 1 hour and then have the blood drawn exactly ONE hour after you finish it. So we got to the doctors office - and I was already nervous. I HATE needles. HATE HATE HATE them. They called us in - Tyson offered his hand to hold - but I opted for the furry teddy bear to hold because my hands were sweaty. Yes I act like I am 5. So Tyson just stood next to me and watched while I had my eyes closed. It lasted 5 seconds. The blood nurse did a great job. Yea for the nurse. She was so nice.

So I survived and this afternoon the nurse called to tell me that everything was great.  
Yea no diabetes and no anemia. 

I do have to say something - the orange drink was BOMB. I thought it tasted great! It was just like orange pop with no fizz.  Granted I totally gulped it down - because almost everyone I've talked to about this test, has told me how awful the drink is. But I stopped to breath half way though my gulping and had one more taste and it was tasty! Perhaps I can just handle my sugar better or something. But it wasn't bad at all. So for all of those who told me is was so horrible - shame on you. haha. 

Okay that was my adventure today. Sad that this was the excitement of my day!

So I know in my last post there is a picture of me all round and jolly - but I thought I would post a picture of me without my nice big grey sweater on. Here is my nice belly. I love it. 
I am finally feeling so much better. It's about time. I love being preggers - it's so wonderful - and it's so fun feeling my little baby bear kicking all around. I just started feeling him about 2 weeks ago - and right before I left to come to Oregon, Tyson was able to feel him kick - so that was very exciting. Tyson loved that he was able to feel him. So everything is going great. On Tuesday I will be 24 weeks along - so crazy. Time is just flying by. Before we know it, the month of May will be here. YEA! We seriously get more and more excited everyday. 

I've been asked by lots of you if we have thought of any names...and Yes we have. But the more we've thought about the names we have, we don't like them any more. ha! So that is still in the works. We do know that our Baby Bear's middle name will be "Reese", that's Tyson's middle name. We've even joked...or I should say that I've joked that we should just name our little one "Bear" - shoot we can't think of anything else and we call him our Baby Bear right now. haha. But we will NOT be using that name. I just think it's funny. 

I will keep everyone posted with my growing pregoness - I don't mind showing the growth. But I think we should all prepare ourselves that I am gonna get really BIG before this Baby Bear comes. haha. Hooray for our little one!!
