Only 242 days until Christmas!

We know what you’re thinking, 242 days is a long time and we still have to have birthdays, baseball season and the last day of April. Well, that is a good point. Still, we love the holidays and this holiday season will be really great. Last year we went on a cruise and between that and Ryan’s studying for the cpa exam and Mindi’s conversion at work, the whole holiday season was kind of whirlwind. This year will be more fun. We will spend the holidays at home and have more time to relax and enjoy time with family. Plus, there will be no studying for Ryan and no job stress for Mindi. It will just be a wonderful time for our family: Ryan, Mindi, Toby, Jeeves and the baby, all of us enjoying a little holiday cheer with the people we hold dear. We can’t wait, 242 days is such a long time!
(Yep, we said it—only 219 days! Scroll down to see…)

Well it officially sucks having morning sickness and by the way it isn't just in the morning it is alllllllllllll the time! I have been laying down either on our couch or in bed since last night at 8:00 pm (it is now 4:00 pm) which makes it 20 hours! Last night was probably the worst it has been. Ryan's work has an after busy season party that we went to. They had a BBQ at their office outside in the sun and about 20 minutes of that and I was sick. We were supposed to go to a Blaze game after dinner, but I was too sick to go so we went home. Today was the Red and White game for the Utes and I was supposed to go to that also, but not wanting to risk anything I stayed home while Ryan went. We still haven't told anyone we are pregant, but Ryan thinks the whole world knows because I am not a good faker of feeling good. I guess we will find out soon enough. Oh, my doctor's office called me yesterday because they needed to reschedule my appointment. It was supposed to be this coming Wed., but is not the following Monday. I wont lie and was dissapointed and the girl who called me didn't seem to care. Needless to say I was not impressed with the doctor that I have not yet met. I guess we will find out in 8 days.

6 Weeks

Last Tuesday I was officially 6 weeks along and wow am I feeling sick!!! Things were going okay, I was feeling tired and a little moody until I went to Florida for work. While I was there I couldn't decide if it was the fact that I wasn't sleeping or that I was eating a lot of food, but I felt sick. So it wasn't until I got home that I really decided that it must be the baby making me sick because I haven't felt good since I left. I know it will all be worth it in the end, but man this really sucks! The picture below show the size of the baby! Still so small...

This last week I had the opportunity to go to Florida for a conference. We were there for five days and it rained for three of those days. Needless to say we didn't get so do anything too exciting. However on the last day we were there after the conference was over we got to go to the driving rang. It was my first time golfing ever and I must admit golfing is really hard. Lucky for me I had Amy and Susan there to show me what to do. Here are some pictures.
Me trying to figure out what to do.

Taking a good swing!

The two masters!!!

This is me trying to get the tee to stay in the pretend grass.

Okay so I was still working on my footing. I know I look like I am bull legged.

Whit and Jane

Last Saturday I had the chance to go to lunch with one of my best friends Whitney and her adorable daughter Jane. Whit and I have been friends for a couple of years. We meet in sorority, but we became ever better friends when we started working together. Since I left there and moved far away we don't see or talk to each other very much. I miss them. So it was nice to go to lunch and catch up.


Ryan and I had the chance to spend some time with our families on Easter and the day before. Here are some fun pictures!!!
