Miscellany Monday

Hello Monday! Link up with Carissa @lowercase letters for your Miscellany Monday!!

Ah drugs...how I love thee
Ok, not the illegal kind. Unless you take them and they aren't yours or you aren't supposed to. No, these are mine. These are beautiful. I finally broke down and called the doctor on Friday for an rx. I just couldn't keep puking and feeling sick all day long...it had been basically 6 weeks of pretty much every day, with the exception of camping. So, I'm taking the generic zofran. And it has made me feel like a whole new person! It makes me really thankful for modern medicine and I know God uses doctors and medicine, and I am so grateful! Yippee to eating and keeping it down! :)

13 Weeks TODAY!!
Wow...13 weeks already. I am excited for our appointment on Thursday. I admit, I've been really anxious the last several days. Feeling like somethings wrong, even though I've had no signs of anything being wrong. It's my worrisome side, the side that the devil plays with and knows it's my weakness. Extra prayers would be appreciated! On another note....baby bump in FULL swing now :) Someday soon maybe I'll be brave and post a picture....it you pay me. :)

BeautiControl Spa Night
My sweet friend Sharon gave me and several of my dear friends a little spa night last night! Facials, foot scrub/rub, hand treatment and lip treatment. It was wonderful. We laughed and ate yummy chocolate cheesecake brought by my friend Laurel and teased about how we were the Real Housewives of the Rogue Valley ha ha! What a show that would be...."this is reality folks...dirty diapers, what's for lunch, did I brush my teeth and where is the pacifier?" :) Think the networks would pick that up?! hehehehe....
No, but seriously...this BeautiControl stuff is pretty amazing. Check out the website here.

Jack's Favorite Sentences
"Oh gosh...it's a cup!" (thanks to the movie Cars)
"That is an SUV!" (thanks to Auntie for teaching him the difference!)
"Oh no, what happened?!"
"Where did Capa (Grandpa) go?!"
He's talking so much....I love to hear him use expressions correctly and make up new sentences each day!
Although right now, his favorite thing to do in the car is look for flags. Then he says, "That is a flag"...only he's not getting the G....so use your imagination.
Ah...the innocence makes me smile.

Worship
So, you know my hubby is the Worship Pastor at our church....well, on Saturday night's we keep Jack in for the first song or two before the nursery, because he downright loves music. I look over at him being held in my Mom's arms this last Saturday during a song, and my little man is singing his heart out at the top of his lungs. I look up to see that hubby happened to glance down at that moment. I had tears of joy in my eyes. My little man, full on worshipping the Lord. Love it.

Happy Monday to you! Hope this week is great!

Fill in the Blank Friday

1. The most adventurous thing I've ever done is well, I'm not super adventurous....but once we went to a Portland Trailblazers game and had great nosebleed seats. We scanned the front row joe's the whole first half and when a couple seats were still vacant at half-time we snuck down and sat in them :) And then we got kicked out of them!




2. If I were a pair of shoes I would be a pair of cute and comfy Puma's.





3. My preferred mode of digital communication is texting. I'm not a talk on the phone person. If it's of a serious matter than I'd talk in person.





4. I feel happiest when I'm with my whole family and everyone is happy and doing good! And also when we're all in Disneyland together :)





5. A little dream I have for my life is to be an interpreter for the deaf. Taking ASL now, and it's hard stuff! But I love it!


6. The one modern convenience I could NOT do without is well, depending on how "modern" we are talking about.......it could be a car or hot water. But more recently....my phone. Just because of the communication element.




7. Music, movies, TV or books: if I could only choose one to enjoy I would pick movies. As much as I love love love books....movies to me mean snuggling up with my hubby and eating popcorn. And we pretty much like the same kinds and we can watch them again and again!

Don't forget to check out my last post on our family pictures! :)

Camping Post Part ONE!

So we went camping for the first time as a family this past week/weekend! We had an absolute blast!

Thankfully I felt the best I've felt since about week 5 and was able to actually EAT! We camped at Harris Beach in Brookings, Oregon. (click here for link) If you are from the West Coast you know where that is, if not.... I will just tell you it's gorgeous. The Oregon Coast is cold yes, but it is absolutely beautiful. We did have one gorgeous day, the rest were chilly! But it was a nice escape from the 100 degree weather we had been having in Southern Oregon. I love where I live. We don't get extreme weather, we get all the season (sometimes in one day!) And it's green and gorgeous!!
So, we stayed in a YURT. If you don't know what it is, this link can explain it! You do all your cooking and eating outside, but you sleep inside this tent that has beds. Keeps you warm at night and off the ground, perfect for a pregnant lady! But the bathrooms and showers are a little walk away, so it's still like tent camping. Only, much better! We'll never ever tent camp again!
My parents went, as well as my sister and her boyfriend. We had the best fires, great food and a wonderful time!

One day we headed up to Bandon, Oregon to go to the Game Park Safari. Check out the link here.
It's one of my most favorite places, because I'm an animal lover. Working here would be my dream job! This was Jack's first time! He loved it because he's a lot like me. And he's a snuggler, so the biggest task was trying to keep him from snuggling the animals too hard, or NOT snuggling the ones you should only touch on the back :)
These are pictures from our first two days. The beach and the game park. I didn't get any other shots! So, after I get my Mom's pictures I will do another post around the campsite and in downtown Bandon and such :)
Enjoy!
