Forever and a day

Forever and a day, that is how long I will love my best friend. It’s been 6 years since Peter and I walked down the aisle as husband and wife and it really does seems like yesterday. We are still so much in love as we were from the beginning. This will be our last anniversary that we actually spend as a couple alone. In less than 3 months, we will be welcoming a new member to our family :) This next year will definitely bring some brand new adventures to our life.

I am a little ashamed to admit that most of the day wasn’t even spent together today. I had to work this morning and Peter has had his friends over all day playing Dungeons & Dragons. I made fajitas for supper for everyone and now I am headed to bed in a little bit. I’m not really sad about the fact that we didn’t spend the day together because we still have our whole lives ahead of us! Plus, we usually only celebrate the bigger milestones when it comes to anniversaries (5 years, 10 years, 15 years, etc). Last year we went to Disney World! Anyway, we still managed to snap our traditional anniversary photo!

Would you rather…

I saw this fun little post on Amanda Nicole’s site and I just had to do it. I was in that kind of mood, yah know!!

WOULD YOU RATHER…

…Watch Star Wars or Star Trek?
Hands down that would be Star Trek!

…Read on a Kindle or paperback book?
Paperback book. However, I also like reading on my iPad, but there really is nothing like holding an actual book in my hands.

…Go to a play or musical?
Musical!! How else could I sing along?!

…Go to the theater or a movie?
Theatre definitely. Love the live stuff.

…Hike or bike?
Bike because it gets you places much quicker.

…Wear jeans or chinos?
I don’t even know what chinos are, so jeans then.

…Have a Margarita or Pina Colada?
Margarita, but preferably frozen rather than over ice.

…Drink a glass of Guinness or Fat Tire?
I’m guessing both are beers so neither because beer is nastay!

…Crash with friends or stay in a hotel?
Crashing with friends/family is way cheaper so that’s the way I like better.

…Visit Europe or Mexico?
Europe because I’ve never been before.

…Vacation in Hawaii or Alaska, and why?
Hawaii because pretty and sunny and hot.

…Go skiing or snowshoeing?
Skiing

…Travel by plane, train, or automobile?
Automobile. However, I wish they were as fast as a plane because then going to Disney World would be AWESOME!

…Enjoy a houseboat or speed boat?
Houseboat because I would definitely get motion sick on a speed boat.

…Go climbing or zip lining?
Zip lining as I’ve heard it’s a lot of fun.

…Go to a comedy club or dance club?
Comedy club even though I’ve never been before. I think I am much too old for dance clubs.

…Have a night out or evening in?
Evening in because then I can curl up in my nighty and watch a movie in bed!

…Watch TV or read a book?
TV but not live, it would have to be pre-recorded or downloaded. I cannot stand just flipping channels.

…Go canoeing or waterskiing?
Canoeing

…Camp in an RV or stay in a tent?
I like tenting, but having my parents in their RV close by is a bonus. I love having access to a fridge.

…Use Facebook or Twitter?
Twitter

…Choose a free trip or money?
Money!

…Win the lottery or find your perfect job?
Honestly? Win the lottery for sure! Who wouldn’t!?

…Swim in a pool or the ocean?
Pool because then no scary animals will bite my feeties.

…Watch sports or play sports?
Neither. Ick.

…Play dodgeball or kickball?
Kickball was always more fun when I was younger.

Whew, that was fun! I felt a little indecisive for some of them, but I managed. Now it’s your turn! Which would you pick?

House and pregnancy updates

Ah life has been so insanely busy this month. We have fully moved into our new home and have nearly all the boxes unpacked. I want to tidy up a bit more before I take pictures to show off the house. It is almost ready for showcasing! We are enjoying it very much to say the least. Our old home is also rented out so that is one less thing to worry about.

As for myself, when I am not at home unpacking boxes, I am working like a dog at work. Our manager went away for two weeks, so as a supervisor, I had to pick up some of the banking duties. It made for some long days. Now I am working opening shifts while some of my co-workers are away. That means bed by 9pm and up at 4:30am. This should continue on and off as people vacation until mid-October. I don’t really know if I will have a regular schedule again before I take off for maternity leave. I am hoping to work at least until the beginning of November.

As for some pregnancy updates, I feel as if a lot has happened since the 20 week update. I finally felt the baby move for the first time at 22 weeks, on my birthday actually (July 10th). It started out as little flutters, but I am starting to feel the movements a little stronger now. When it has hiccups, my belly actually moves, especially while lying down. It’s pretty cool to see. Unfortunately Peter hasn’t been able to feel any movement yet. I really hope he can soon because I desperately want to share this experience with him.

I will see my midwife tomorrow for my 28 week check up. I had my gestational diabetes test a couple weeks ago, but I haven’t heard anything about it yet. I figure if it was bad, they would have contacted me right away. I’m sure I will find out 100% tomorrow.

We are sort of trying to get all the necessities that will be required by the time the baby arrives. It’s such a huge ordeal. I want to buy all the things, but I know I won’t need all of it. It’s hard to know which brand to buy or how much money to spend. So many options out there. I went with a friend to Babies R Us to sign up for a baby registry. She has a son and so she helped me pick out some good products. I know I might have to buy some of them before the baby is born, but other things can wait for my baby showers, which will take place after the baby is here.

I am officially in my 3rd trimester. Boy how time is flying by. I’m not complaining, however because I really can’t wait to meet this little one. However, to my dismay, I have suffered from a little bit of heartburn lately, which is a common symptom in the last trimester. I really hope it subsides because it is not a pleasant feeling. Oh well, I will take the burn over vomiting any day. I took a bump photo the other day and I thought I would share:

Hopefully a long picture enhanced house post will come soon!
