Random Thoughts!

So I haven't posted in a while and I figured I probably should. Nothing too exciting has happened to us this week, but here are a few random things that have happened to me.
1. A Great Deal
Thanks to Kerrie I got a great deal on some baby clothes at They were having a spring clearance and I bought Hannah about seven things, each only costing $3.50. She got a coat, two dresses, pants, two shirts, and a hat; all for under $30. We received the clothes in the mail a couple days ago and they were definitely worth the money.
2. Contest is over
Well, in case any of you were wondering about the contest Scott and I were having with losing weight, I won with flying colors. Scott stopped his diet about two weeks into the contest(as I expected he would). I actually stopped my diet as well but still lost 6 pounds all together, probably because of breast feeding. Scott actually gained 4 pounds, which is kind of funny. So because he gained 4 pounds, I get $3 for every pound he gained and $2 for every pound I lost. That's $24!!! I am not going to post an after picture of me though because I really don't look that different from before. I still have to tone up my body, not that any of you really care, but I have love handles the size of Texas!!
3. Sickness all around
This week all three of us have been sick with a cold. I think Hannah got it the worst though. It is sad to hear her cough with all that gunk in her throat. I think she is slowly getting better, though. She also started saying words like "da" and "ba." She doesn't know what she's saying yet but at least her language skills are developing.
4. Finals
Scott and I have had finals for the last couple of days and will continue to have them until Wednesday. So far, I think we have both done pretty well.
5. Hot Dogs
Yesterday Scott bought me a big polish dog from some little joint on BYU campus and it was delicious, but made me incredibly sick. If any of you want to buy me a hot dog for lunch in the future, do both of us a favor and save your money. I love hot dogs, but they make me sooooo sick for the rest of the day and I am burping them up for 24 hours straight (not that you wanted to know that). I can do store bought hot dogs, but it's the big ones you buy from restaurants and Costco that make me sick.
6. Insomnia
I have had incredibly bad insomnia for quite some time now. Scott and I will go to bed together and 60 seconds later, he is asleep. I lay there for hours watching him sleep comfortably while I just have random thoughts racing through my head (like this blog). I don't know what my problem is, but it's really wearing me out.

Well, those are the things that have happened to us this past week. We are SO excited to come to California this week. I apologize there are no pictures in this blog but we actually haven't taken any this week.

I'm so excited to see you guys. Congrats on winning the weight loss competition. Sorry for the insomnia. I sometimes feel like I have it too. Good luck on the rest of your finals!

There's nothing like reliving a Costco hotdog every two minutes...but I feel bad for Scott and Hannah...polish dog burgs reeeeek. Just ask Donna :) !!

Yeah, I have somewhat given up on those big dogs too. We went to costco the other day and bought one hot dog and asked for another bun. I split the dog down the middle lengthwise and put it into two buns for Kaden and Hailey, there was still plenty of hot dog, and much less burping.
As for insomnia, I know it can be miserable. I'm usually ok at home, but I don't sleep on trips or when I am prego. When I was pregnant with Ella, I thought I was going to be insane. I think I went 9 months without sleeping. If you have something big, like finals that you need to sleep for, you can always try tylenol pm- it worked for me on my last trip. (I heard it is safe for pregnancy and nursing- you may want to double check).

Maran, you will probably be here before you get to read this. But, I apologize for you inheriting the insomnia thing. You are just too young to have it that bad already! I really think it has to do with hormones. Maybe when you stop nursing Hannah, it will get better. I sure hope so. BTW, do you want to go to Costco with me and get a Polish dog? Hee hee. Mom
