Poppin' Tums like candy.

Brandon laughs at me all the time because I have started calling Tums my special candy. But until I start eating other candy, that's what it's going to be called! Sometime around the middle of June, I started getting heartburn frequently. I had never really had heartburn before, so I had never taken Tums, and avoided them like the plague. That is until we were on the bus ride home from Mount Vernon and I had heartburn so bad I thought I was going to be sick. Now I love Tums like a pregnant lady loves...all the things. Don't even try and stop me.

Anyway, this week is going painfully yet blissfully slow so far. Our anniversary weekend was quite nice. We spent Friday night putting a recliner in the nursery, and just relaxing. Saturday we went shopping for some wedding gifts and baby things, then got our traditional Costa for lunch. After relaxing for a little bit, we rearranged the nursery and I am so happy with it. We only have two walls that we can put things on, but for some reason, swapping the crib and the dresser to opposite walls made a HUGE difference. I'm so pleased with it! Then we went to Hobby Lobby and spent waaaay too much time/money picking out pieces for baby boy's gallery wall. He's so spoiled already, I love it. And that night we got Little Caesar's and watched Angry Birds. We really know how to live.

Sunday we made the quick drive up to Logan and spent a couple hours with Brandon's family before meeting my parents and brother in town! Adrian is starting at Utah State next week, so we helped move him into his apartment, then showed him where all his classes will be this semester. It's so fun to think that he will be making memories in so many of the same places that I did. 

Last night was just really nice, because we both got home at the same time, had dinner not in front of the tv (which happens pretty frequently, but definitely not the majority of the time), got the house all clean, hung some pictures in the nursery, and then just hung out the rest of the night. It wasn't one of those nights where I felt like we were going to bed as soon as we got home, so it was great.

I'm looking forward to the rest of this week and the weekend, but mostly in hopes that we'll find plenty of time to relax and just hang out together!


Don't mind Milo. He thinks he is the baby.


Cast your votes!

This weekend went by way too fast. We spent time with friends, went to a movie, did some shopping, and napped, twice. I always hate when weekends speed by, but I am so happy that Monday is finally over, and tomorrow is almost here! Tomorrow we find out the gender of our little nugget!! We've had the appointment set for a week and a half, but it has taken f  o  r  e  v  e  r.  I had a dream last night that we went to our appointment. Like, finished out the appointment, found out the gender and everything. I was so disappointed when I woke up. 

Anyway, we bought our first (costco-size) box of diapers yesterday to get us pumped for tomorrow. I am so excited to just know what we're having so we can start shopping! We have thought for a while now that baby is a girl, even though lots of people tell us the odds are against us since Brandon is one of four boys, but we're holding out hope! Actually, we just hope the baby is healthy, but I think we would be really shocked if it ends up being a boy. And we'd have a lot of apologizing to do, because I keep calling the babe "she." I've heard from my mom and grandma (and kind of my dad? he referred to the babe many times as both genders in the course of a few days), but I'm curious if anyone else thinks one way or the other for us. You'll all find out on Saturday!!

What will it be?!?

And for your entertainment, here's a baby picture of Brandon and myself.
