Long time...no blog

After hearing a lot of "crap" (sorry no other word for it) about my lame blogging skills I decided to write a little of what has been going on in our summer. I guess my life is just not as exciting as all of yours or maybe it takes too much time or maybe I am just lame so anyway first things first...
BABY HENRY #3 IS FINALLY ON THE WAY
Actually that could be my best excuse because I "feel like throw up" (in Camryn's words) all the time!! It has been so long since I have been pregnant I truly forgot what this is like and it does seem worse this time. I am so tired and sick I have to set little goals for myself like: wash my bedding and make my bed, make dinner, get dressed and I'm pretty much done for the day. I've enjoyed a lot of TV which I don't usually watch. I am a big sunbather usually but this summer being in the sun just makes the nausea worse. Enough complaining. Here are some things that I like right now:

1. Sonic Lime Rickeys (everyday about a week and half straight)
2. Tuna sandwiches with lettuce and tomatoes. Weird that sounds good being nauseous, huh?
3. Salty things- anything. Now this is weird because I am a sweets girl but not right now at all!
4. Popsicles- any kind.
5. My 2 bathroom breaks a night-already, what the heck!
6. My soft squishy body pillow from Costco which I'm sure I will love even more as tummy gets bigger.
7. My cute husband who is just fine with me laying around all day and having to pick up the slack-big time!
8. My older independent girls who have been so helpful, maybe there is something to a 7 year break-ha ha.

Well there's our big news...besides playing in the sun, a little camping, a 4th of July v-ball tourney, swimming, taking care of my garden, and hanging with the fam that's about all we've been doing. That's a very brief catch up-I will TRY to keep on top of things for you all and post more often. Oh by the way I am 8 weeks along, first official appt tomorrow, wish me luck!

Woo-Hoo! Congratulations. Good luck at your appointment tomorrow. I bet your girls are SO excited! Sorry about the sickness, I don't envy you that at all...ugh! I hope you get feeling better real soon.

Yay for baby Henry #3. I am so excited for you guys. I hope that you start feeling better. Let me know if I can ever do anything. Congrats!

Sara said...

Yay! I ran into Shelby over the weekend and she shared your news, so I was going to leave a "cryptic" comment on your blog to congratulate you, but not "give it away" to anyone else (in case you weren't sharing yet), but LOOK! Even better... a new post! :) Congratulations on both exciting accomplishments! :)

I am a few months ahead of you, but share the sentiment... bring on the salty snacks and the lime rickeys! :)

brandy! it's katie clifford from the 14th ward...i blog hopped over from Jane Rhodes' blog. It's so fun to catch up on your cute little family! I take it you married that boy you met freshman year at SUU? Awe-some. Anyway, fun to run across you and GOOD LUCK with the new little one! Very exciting.

Congrats and good-luck! We are so so so beyond excited for you guys! I hope you guys can make it out to Tahoe in a few weeks with us...we would love to see you all!

joey said...

So happy for you, that is so great!

Jane said...

yah-hooo!!! I'm so sorry you are sick, but so excited to hear your news! There is really something easier about having babies in our early 20's, it is so much harder after 30. I don't know if I'm physically or mentally older but it feels more wearing, huh?!? Your "big" girls will be such an incredible help! I hope your appt. went well, and thanks for the new post/update!

As always, I would love to hook up with you! I can come hang out and we can watch TV...hehe.

By the way, very cool that you know K8. Katie and I were sorority sisters at SUU...

Hooray!!!! I took a long shot checking your blog again, and to my joy....Brandy is back! So the reason you need to blog more is because we don't get to talk very much. I love hearing about the pregnancy (except that your so sick), and everything else! We love you all! Say Hi to Cam Cam, Hailey had a blast with her at the party!

Just checking in to see how you are doing. Hope the pregnancy is going well and that you are feeling better. You don't know what you are having yet, do you?

Just as a side note, Carolyn is expecting too! You'll have to check out her blog.

Anyway, we should do lunch again. It was great seeing you. Take care.
