20 weeks!! Half way there!

Okay, so my doc's goal for me is 38 weeks... so I'm over half way if you look at it that way :)

 Sorry, I didn't really feel like being in the pictures today lol.... I'm sure you understand :)

This week I went out with a friend to get pedicures!  I was given a giftcard for my birthday and I was waiting to use it for when bending over to paint my toes seemed completely out of the question!  It was really nice and totally needed.  I really like the color too!  Bright and pink!  (thankfully my feet haven't gotten swollen yet lol)

On Monday (27th) night Jon and I went out to dinner at Chuy's (so.delicious!!).  We had a few things to celebrate.  It was my mom's birthday and we figured that she'd be okay with it ;)  She would have been 63.  Then we also got news that Jon got a raise!  We knew he was promoted, but hadn't heard anything about a raise or anything else.  I am so very proud of him!  Sadly, I forgot to take pictures.  We had a good time though and the food hit the spot! 

Also this week, we found out that Jon is being given the opportunity to go to BYU next week for a recruiting event!  I would be lying if I said I wasn't jealous :)  He's so excited.  He's planning out all his meals so he can hit up a few of his/our old favorite places.  India Palace, costa vida, jdawgs.... okay, I'm getting hungry just talking about it!  I told him that if he isn't going to bring me a to-go box from costa vida (lol) then I would settle for a few BYU mint chocolate truffles and 2 outfits for the babies.  :)

We've also been busy trying to get things together in the nursery!  We've been given a few things from friends this week (a swing and lots of boy clothes!  thank you thank you!) 

Anyways, we bought an Ikea expedite shelving unit and we made a few modifications to it and it is awesome!  This will be our changing table along with being storage!  We put a few drawers in. I found the cute knobs at Hobby Lobby.  Then, we added legs from Ikea's kitchen section.  I love it!

One of our cribs came yesterday.  We are still needing to get the other one and both mattresses.  Jon was excited to put it together last night when he got home from work.  He kept saying "Are you seeing this??? Doesn't it make it feel more real and exciting??"  He's so cute :)


This last weekend I finished the UP blanket!!  I backed it with a soft yellow flannel and then binded it with bias tape.  It feels good to have it done :)  Also, notice the rocking chair!  Jon's parents were very kind in offering it to us.  I won't lie... it has already gotten some use!  When my back is really hurting, that's the most comfy place for me to sit!

All is going well so far.  No weird cravings to report (other than wanting mexican food this week at Chuy's) :)  The only thing that I'm not looking forward to is our pool closing.  They are closing it after Labor Day.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do.  I can go on walks, but there are still a lot of discomforts (even with my belly belt).  The pool is where I feel the best.  I don't want to spend the money for a gym membership to use a pool either.  Decisions decisions... we'll see how it goes.    Other than that- things are great.

You look so cute! That's exciting that the nursery is coming along. I LOVE the Up blanket! Did you design it yourself? Brian is going to BYU for recruiting and I didn't even think of asking him to bring something back! Good thinking! For me it will be the chocolate covered cinnamon bears. I can't find them anywhere else!

If you find a way to come with Jon on his recruiting trip we'd even set up the guest room for you guys here! Either way though make sure at least Jon stops by and says hi to us while he's in town! So glad to hear that things are going well with your preparations for the babies! Have you come up with names yet, and are you going to share what those names are before they arrive?

This is so awesome! Soon you won't be able to see your cute pink toes, so enjoy them while you can :).

Crystal said...

Thank-you! I designed it myself. There is a 3rd cloud on the top that you can't see and I embroidered "adventure is out there!" At the bottom :)

Lol the only reason I probably thought of asking him to bring back stuff is bc I'm preggers. Food (esp chocolate goodness) is a serious priority :)

Crystal said...

I told him :) the only problem that could potentially come up is timing. He gets in Wed afternoon and leaves Thurs afternoon.

As far as names.... We've thought of a few, but I don't think I'll be set on any of them until they come!

Crystal said...

That's the nice thing about cameras.... It makes you think that I can still see my toes ;) heh, I can see a few of them still... but only toenails.

It's coming along!! We bought our crib mattress on black Friday. It was 50% off at Babies R Us. I'm with Amy and I would love some Chocolate Covered Cinnamon Bears! Mmmmmmm.... :)
