Tutu's, chocolate and belly casts...

Another week down--Thank You Jesus!!!

It's been a rough one. This pregnancy thing is starting to take a toll on me...and I still have another month!!! Come on Paislee!!! Heartburn is miserable and keeping me up all night, everynight. As if I don't need all the sleep I can get at this point. I have tried everything from Tums and Zantac to apples, almonds and vinegar. The Zantac worked in the beginning, and the vinegar worked for a couple of nights, but now--NOTHING. I am convinced that no matter what I eat, this heartburn will be here until Paislee takes its place. Boo! Also, my belly is growing every day and my clothes are not. I'm down to about 2 shirts that completely cover my belly, and they are down to their last wear as well. It's pretty stressful not being able to just go to the store and by a new shirt--I'll have to start wrapping myself in a sheet when I go somewhere!

Did any one watch the 'Kendra' baby special on E! ? She bought this belly cast kit, and made a mold out of her big pregnant belly. After seeing that, Jason and I decided WE want to do that. It will be neat to be able to look back at how HUGE I got, and to one day show Paislee where she spent the first 9 months of her existance :o) So I ordered one,and it came yesterday. Now I can't wait to do it! Question is--when should we do it? I don't want to do it too soon, because I want to do it when I am humungo...but I don't want to put it off till the last minute and forget about it or even worse, have to do it AFTER I go in labor. We will probably wait until the first week of March, since Jason is convinced that she will be here the 2nd week of March--let's hope he is right, wouldn't that be nice??

I've spent my week doing schoolwork, sleeping, eating and making tutus! We bought lots and lots of tulle while we were in Anchorage,and I have managed to go through it all, with 8 tutus to show for it--I can't wait for her to get here so we can have lots of photoshoots!

Here are a few that I have made

I know everyone is excited about Valentine's Day coming up-everyone except us! I'm not a big fan of Valentine's Day, which comes from spending SO MANY Valentine's Days in the past being MISERABLE because I didn't have a date or I was dating a jerk that didn't know what he was supposed to do on that day, ha! So from the beginning, Jason and I decided that we would not do gifts on Valentine's Day because I would rather us show our love every day of the year, and not just one designated day. Aren't unexpected flowers SO much better than getting flowers on Valentine's Day? I think so! Also, Jason will not be here this Valentine's Day, so easy enough-we will not be celebrating it :o) I'm sure that will change next year when Paislee is here--as will all of our other holidays! I will probably cook a nice meal and maybe even attempt to bake a cake for Jason on Monday night when he gets home :o)

We DID get a box of chocolates and a teddy bear from Jason's Mama this week, and although I don't even need to look at the chocolates, I LOVE the box they came in!

Paislee!!!! Thank you Mama T!!!

Well, off to make Jodi's bean dip! The boat wives are getting together tonight for some good food and gossip ;o)

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

2 more days until Jason is HOME!



  1. love the tutus!!! agree w/ you on v-day. no need to make a big deal of it! hope you enjoy the mexican dip! we will catch up either sat. or sunday!!!! love you!

  2. Ashley... (I think you'll remember me, we met at Lance Ramsey's a LONG time ago and are friends on Facebook!!) I love reading your blog! One of my girlfriend's swears that the only thing that helped her miserable pregnancy heartburn was a milkshake from McDonalds every day after lunch. I know there can't be too many McDonald's out there, but maybe try making one at home? Hope the heartburn gets better!

  3. Hey! YES I remember you! No, no McDonalds around here, but I could look up the recipe online I'm sure, and with all of the ice cream I've been going through lately I think I might can scrounge up the ingredients without even having to go to the grocery store! Sounds much better than the vinegar and other mess I've been trying! Thank you! Hope you are doing well!!!

  4. I hope it works!!! Life here is good, we have 6 inches of snow (ugh!) nothing like what you have, but I thought I moved to the south! Puppies are very happy with the snow though, so I can't complain too much :) good luck making milkshakes!!!
