A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That


You know how annoying it is to have your post ALMOST finished, just to have it completely erased when you hit, "post?" Well, that happened last night. So with this new post, feel lucky that it is shorter and more to-the-point. Scott and I headed to Orlando last weekend to spend one more night with Scott's oldest brother Mark and his fam. They had tons of leftover meal tickets from Disney so Friday night after work, we drove three VERY long hours (we were stuck in traffic FOREVER) to Orlando. After spending a fun night with them at dinner, we snuck in their hotel for a good nights rest. Sorry to Kate and Maxim for kicking them out of their beds and of course, I was the first asleep (maybe even out of the kids?P)

Poor guy was wiped out. I would be too had I spent the whole week at Disney getting constantly overstimulated with all the tiny details everywhere...

By the time my meal came, I had stuffed my face with bread (come on, I'm prego and I need to eat often. I had gone too long without food). The mashed potatoes were PERFECT and I spent way too much time on those. Sorry to say, although my meat was fantastic, I hardly even dented it.

Scott's lovely dish

We all got desserts even though my top button was seriously going to pop. I was very proud of my husband to let his inner child come out and get the coolest dessert ever. It was ice cream with all sorts of toppings and Cotton Candy stickin out of the top...

I got a pretty fantastic molten cake/torte. I think my stomach only handled two or three bites before I had to call it quits. Too bad...that was some dang good stuff.

We were in a hurry to get home from Orlando because Saturday's are Scott's really big study days. The weather was fabulous, though and Scott knows how badly I have wanted to go rollerblading, so before getting ANYTHING done, we strapped on the rollerblades (thanks Tiff for letting Scott borrow Steven's) and headed out. Now, I have spent quite a bit more time on blades then Scott. I used to go regularly as a kid back in O-Town. I have to say that I SMOKED Scott down hill. However, he DID NOT have brakes on his wheels and I would have been a little nervous as well. Eventually he was going faster than me (I think cause his feet were hurting and he wanted to get home). Not more than 5 minutes after walking in the door, some friends called and said they were having a good-bye bbq at another friends parent's sweet home. After weighing out our options and figuring out what would be more important, we chose to not be responsible and head out to the bbq. We had a great time spending our "supposed to be getting things done" Saturday with friends.


I would LOVE to live in a Waterfront home. So relaxing and peaceful! Sigh...

Little Dane. His Dad is the owner of this fine home. He was hilarious, he wanted us to take a picture of his plane, but I was sneaky and took both. I have him in primary and he cracks me up!


Katie, Kira, Me and Jaynie. Good bye Kira! We miss you tons!

OK, so you know those websites that you come across and they say things like, "Enter here and win a free Wii, or free Ipod," then you have to sign up for all these nonsense weight loss free trials, or Credit cards. Well, my sister's friend was telling her that she had tried one that really worked. You have to totally keep track of everything you sign up for because most of the things are free trials and after the two week free period, they are no longer free and start charging the credit card. So, I kept a spreadsheet of everything I signed up for (it was anything from diet pills, Colo pure, Blockbuster, emusic,etc). After a few months of collecting points, I FINALLY got the Wii. Scott was very skeptical at first and became more so when I told him that we still had not been rewarded some of our points that we should have been (in truth, I was actually lying cause after I got all of the points, it just took forever to get everything processed and shipped and it was supposed to get here on V-day, which it did not). Scott was pretty excited for its arrival. I was pretty proud of myself for doing such a good job keeping track of everything. I am not gonna lie, it got a little stressful at times when you were not getting the points issued.















Happy Husband=Happy Wife.

I have played tennis a couple of times, and Scott has already racked up some pretty high points. We were both sore after the first day of playing! Sad huh?

And another exciting note...Scott and I heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time on Wednesday. Such a cool experience. I think we are having a girl and Scott thinks that it is a boy. We will be happy with either...I think I am right though!!

I am still mad at that stupid website!! Where is my prize? Shouldn't it have worked for me since I was the one to tell you about it? Lame =trainn.org!! Happy tennis to you tho!

emily said...

I love the Wii! Eric and I keep buying games for it because there are so many fun ones! DDR is one of my new favorites. Gives a good workout too. :)

Lindsay said...

OH SWEET! I forgot about DDR. That one will DEFINATELY be on my list!

How cool is that--you had the patience to do go through the free trials to get the Wii--and the smarts to scam the scammers. I HATE those free trial periods because they are set-up to stick-it to the customers if they forget to cancel...yeah it happened to me (I even returned the product). I'll never try another one again. Love it that you beat them at their own game!!

jenny said...

I think it's a boy...sorry Lindsay! I can't wait to find out though. Welcome to the Wii club :)

Chelsy said...

The Wii is a blast, Rand's parents have it for 'fun family competition'. With Rand, his parents, his brother and myself...there's nothing friendly about it! Mass amounts of trash talking!!!

JonandLo said...

you still don't look at all prego!! I am so jealous you're in warm weather=( not fair!!
and I think you're having a girl too!!

I was sore for days after the first time playing the wii. I figured that was a sign that I needed to work out more. I couldn't even give a high five for days after doing boxing the first time. Enjoy!

Yay for hearing the heartbeat! I didn't cry when I found out I was pregnant, (it was our first month trying, so I was more in shock), but it all hit me as so real when I heard that heart beating away. Such a neat time. Enjoy!
