introducing baby abbigail

Jess did some 3D ultrasounds on lil' Abby on Saturday. You will have to excuse the ghetto "scanning" job. I do not have access to an actual photo scanner, so I did it the old fashion way!

She was kinda shy in this photo!


As some of you may know, I love me some dirt bike action! I won some tickets to Supercross on Saturday, so Jess, Casey, Dan and I braved the cold and headed to Rice Eccles Stadium. Luckily, the rain cleared, but it made for some sloppy track conditions!

As you can see, the tickets you win off the radio are not usually the best seats in the house. It was the nose bleed section for us but I did not mind! We were right above the first corner, so we got to see the pileups and who got the holeshot pretty well.
Nothing gets me more excited than the start gate! Even though I did not race that much and by no means was I any good at it, I just remember that nervous/excited feeling you get when you have that throttle revved up, the gate drops, and you are off!
And the winner is:

James Stewart

I am sad to say I did not even get to see the finish. I saw the first 10 laps of the main event, which was super competitive, where James Stewart and Chad Reed battled it out, but I am sad to say we left. We were cold, hungry, tired, and wanted to beat traffic...yes, I am officially an old party pooper.

mission 1/3 accomplished

So, I did the ottoman last night (with only a few minor cuss words) and I must say...

Just don't look underneath!

nesting project #1

Reupholster this:

I am extremely grateful to the person who gave it to me, but you gotta admit, the pads are butt ugly! I have a chair on my registery, but it is $ pretty and comfy as it is, that price tag is just not feasible for any budget. Plus, think of all the diapers I can buy with that money!

So, I am definitely not a seamstress and really have no idea how to go about this. I know I will screw it up. I am going to do the ottoman by myself, because all it includes are a few staples, but if anyone here knows how to do these cushions...I WILL PAY YOU!

I need one of these inflatable butt donuts in the WORST way!
And NO, not due to hemmoroids...not yet at least.
My tailbone feels like I bruised it and it makes sitting at work unbearable.
Just felt like venting.

ego check

Leave it to South Park to make someone realize they are a dumbass. I caught a few moments of this episode as I was drifting in and out of sleep (because 11pm is just waaay past my bedtime) and it was hilarious! I guess good ol' Kanye got his feelings hurt :(. Quote of the day by Kanye:

months 4 & 6

I am coming to the end of my 2nd trimester, so I thought I would post some pics for those who are interested. I kinda forgot to take pictures of my 5th month...whoops.
This is about 17 1/2 weeks.

This is 25 1/2 weeks

This is also about 25 1/2 weeks

I am thinking I am not going to post the partial nude pics anymore, because they even look a little freakish to me!

Things are well with the exception of some lower back pain, not being able to get up off the floor without some help, and grunting everytime I get out of the car or up out of a chair. Oh, and peeing when I sneeze! I have to admit pregnancy is no easy ride! It is frustrating to not be able to do things you used to do everyday without a struggle. I know, it will all be worth it in the end :).


are the looks I got at the liquor store last night while purchasing beer for Jess's b-day.
