Big news folks...

So...yesterday I got a Mothers Day surprise from my dear husband Jacob. Why you ask am I receiving Mothers day gifts? Well read on and you may find out. First off, I begged and pleaded to get this...
And...he got it for me! I am convinced this is the miracle my booty needs. This guy trains Victoria's Secret models so you know he's good. I so excited to get it in the mail!

Then... here comes announcement time. He surprised me with this little combination...

This guy knew that pickles and ice cream are pregnancy craving food from the show "Pregnant in Heals" on TLC. One of my new fav's! So yes, this is what it means. We are unexpectedly expecting! I am 11 weeks and we're due November 30th! Here's the proof...can you tell I was in complete shock cause I took 4? I actually took one the next day as well in utter disbelief..still positive though.

 This was definitely a surprise to us, we've only been married 9 months and we "planned" to wait about 2 years before we even thought about kids. But life doesn't always go according to plan as I've learned. We planned to wait for many reasons, one being that my little sister Kelly just barely left on her mission and we intended to wait until she at least got home. Secondly, if any of you know my incredible sister'll know that she has been trying for about 6 years to get pregnant. Let me tell you that there is NO ONE in this world who deserves this more than she does. I never in a million years imagined myself getting this blessing before her. However, she is doing infertility treatments very soon and I truly feel that this is going to be her time, and I am so beyond thrilled for her.

So this might be a little personal/ somewhat inaapropriate to post on a blog, but I just think my husband is so funny! This is a close up of the card he gave me...

Hahah totally inappropriate to post on a blog right? I just laugh so much! Gotta love that man.

So this experience thus far has been unlike I ever expected it would be, because its unexpected. However don't let that downplay our excitement...we are thrilled to start our little family. We told our parents about a month ago by making these little cheesy shirts. If you know my family, you'll know we love to make ridiculous shirts.

Mama was so excited she grabbed a random worker at the restaurant to tell her the news.

Jacob may be a little further along than I am here as you can tell. We took those pics on our shirts at Dave and Busters while we were dating at the "gene machine" where they combine your faces and make your child, and that baby was definitely not the child they said we would create. The machine made a child that was absolutely hideous, so I replaced it with a cute baby.

We are so excited for this next chapter in our lives. I haven't really been that sick except the occasional nausea & severe exhaustion. Actually, last week I threw up in Jacob's car just cause I hadn't eaten anything for awhile...I laughed, but Jacob did not.  

So that's our big news...we made a baby!

Hello world of bloggers, nice to meet you...

Since we have been married 9 months now, I figured it was about that time to create a blog. Technically we are behind, and lets be honest...facebook just isn't cuttin it anymore for my online social life. I am not crafty. I'm not a great cook. I don't have a sweet camera. I have almost 0 hobbies right now, and I am not known to be an avid documenter of my life, so this shall be interesting to see what things I could possibly blog about. However, I do have a pretty incredible husband & wonderful family, so why not document the simple things in life that I love and adore.

Jacob is excited for me to start this because he says I need something to do, TLC shows are starting to bore me. There's only so much "Say yes to the dress", "I didn't Know I was pregnant", and "Hoarders" I can watch before I start to loose my mind. Why don't I play with my husband instead you ask? Well you see I'm working as a Nurse at Good Sam and a nurses schedule is only 3 days a week. While my hubby works at Wells Fargo as a banker 5 days a week and goes to school full time. So you see there's much free time for me, and I try not to leave my house a lot or then I end up spending uneccessary money (Jacob says).

So a quick update on what we've been doing...well we got married, we bought a cute little house with a porch swing & beautiful tree named Micheal (named after our realtor), we went snowboarding this one time, Jacob tore his ACL and had to get surgery, Jacob rides his bike like twice a day, I watch TV a lot, Jacob is working on getting his bachelors in business or somethin, and we have jobs. Oh ya, and my little sister went on a mission. So much has happened, so many huge events obviously, is simple, its kinda the way I love it. Wouldn't change it for a thing.
