So I am sure most of you have heard about the deck that Travis built for Mike and I. It is excellent! I love it! Yeah for Travis having time off of school and being board!!! Also thank you to mom and dad for funding the project. It turned out so good! We love it, and now our dogs can't jump up on our back door!!! YEAH!!! They hate it, I love it. Thanks again Trav for all your hard work, we love our new deck!

This is just the beginning.

all finished! Pretty!

me pregnant, and I swear I don't wear this shirt all the time, it is just the one I am always wearing when I take prego pictures of myself apparently.

so turns out Mike took a picture of the brownies before we devoured them. Look how cute?

My sweet husband and I have been married for a year now! Can you believe it! It has gone by so fast, and I have loved every minute of it. It was October 20, which this year was a Monday. So let me tell you a little bit about our day.

Monday's are the worst days for us because Mike has school until about 8:30 and I have a class in Salt Lake that I go to every Monday and get home around 10:00 pm. So basically we don't see each other all day, and I usually have to wake him up when I get home from class to let him know I am back. So this past Monday I was a little bummed that I wasn't going to get to see Mike all day long. So I get to work and Frank can see that I am not in the greatest of moods, and asks me if I want to go run and errand to get out for a little bit. Mike had just told me that morning before I left for work that if Frank asks me to run an errand to ask to use his truck because our subie is acting funny. So I ask Frank and he says that is fine, so I go to "downtown logan" to the Logo shop where the parking lot is like an alley way. So on the other side of this alley way (parking lot) is a ups truck (who gets the full blame for what I am about to tell you). So as I am leaving the ups man is nowhere to be found and I don't want to back out onto main street. So I try to get around him, when I see that this is impossible I decide to park in the parking spot I am close to (they were the angled ones) ya, I was too close to do that as well. I realized this when I heard Frank car crunching into another car already parked. I just froze, backed out and heard the dent pop out, and went onto main street parked there and put my head in my hands. I thought maybe it isn't too bad and I won't have to mention a thing. That would've been nice. I got out to look at the truck and it is dented with a little of the other cars paint on it. By this point I am in tears trying to figure out what to do. To make a long story short, I called Frank, he wasn't angry just told me to come back and we would figure everything out.

That was my day. Happy Anniversary.

So I went to my class that night everything went well I finished my leather book and I love it! I came home to find Mike was still awake. He had me wait in the living room while he went and lit candles on some brownies he had made for me. On the brownies he wrote Happy 1st anniversary to us. It was so cute and just what I needed, a perfect ending to a not so great day.
I would show you a picture of these wonderful brownies but they unfortunately are all gone. They were very yummy.

I couldn't ask for a better husband, Mike spoils me and I love it. He is the most wonderful thing in the entire world and I couldn't ask for more. I love how excited he is to have a baby, and I can't wait. I love Mike so much and we have had one great year, and I am so excited for our new adventures. He is my best friend, and I have so much fun spending time with him. Plus look at how cute he is!

I have more things to post about but that will have to wait until another day!

It is October 11th and it is snowing!! YEAH! I can't believe how much is coming down, but they are really small flakes and not really sticking. It is supposed to snow about 2 inches in the valley today, so they say. I tried to take a picture of it and it doesn't work, it just looks like fall, and if you look really close you can see little white streaks. So this morning Mike is doing a service project outside! YIKES! That should be fun shoveling dirt in the snow and it is really really windy. So while he has been gone I have been crafting. I saw Jen's cute Halloween decorations and thought, I want to make halloween decorations! So I tried finding a fun font online to use to make a little banner, and I couldn't figure out how to get it on my 12x12 orange paper, so I just used a sharpie! So here is what I have done last night until 11:30 and then this morning at 8:00. I think it turned out pretty alright. I might get different branches I haven't decided yet. Next fun thing that is going to happen today, Jen and I are going to make sock monkeys!! YEAH! I am so excited, it will be great fun. I will post a picture of that later.

Real quick update.

Well I am now at 30 weeks, well 31 tomorrow. I went to the doctor today everything is right on schedule and I start my appointments every 2 weeks. I am going to go to a couple of the other doctors for these next visits to get to know them, in case they are the ones on call when I have my baby. Also I am posting a picture of Brad and Emily's baby! SO CUTE!!! Mya Ada Hulse, she was born October 7th, 8lbs 13 ounces and 20 1/2 inches!! I am so happy for them and I wish I could be there!!! I don't know when I will see them next, maybe we can swing Christmas, that is what I am hoping for. Also there is a picture of when My mom and sister Angie came to visit. I had so much fun with both of them! Angie was here for the weekend for my baby shower and my mom got to be here for almost a whole week! We did lots of little projects, and I will have to take a picture of the baby's room and show you. There is so much I have to write about but I have to get to making my mom's birthday present, which is TODAY! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!! So until next time. . .
