i'm going crazy

I lost my bra this morning. I couldn't find it for the longest time.  I'm not the girl that will take it off the minute they walk in the door. No sir. I put mine on when I get out of the shower in the morning and I don't take it off until I know I'm crawling into bed. I hate more than anything taking it off only to realize that I have to put it back on because someone is coming over, or I forgot I have to run an errand. And let me tell you, with girls like mine, when they hang low they definitely wobble to and fro. It's just not comfortable.
So at the end of the night I always take it off at the foot of my bed and hang it on the knob of my dresser drawer, that way I know where it's at in the morning. Well this morning I get out of the shower and open my drawer to put my g's on, and my bra was gone. My first thougt was "hmm, that's weird". So I searched everwhere around the dresser, around the bed, under the bed, in all the drawers. After searching for a while I start getting really frustrated thinking that when I push that snooze button in the morning, I don't schedule in an extra 15 minutes for bra-searching time.
I decided to start getting ready, hoping I would suddenly remember something like "oh ya, I took it off in the kitchen and left it on the stove while getting a drink of water before bed" or "I hung it over the shower door while brushing my teeth".  But the epiphany never came.  I knew I had to leave for work soon, so I tried searching for an old bra that doesn't make me look like I have 80 year old boobs.  As I was getting dressed I called Erik and was going to leave him a nasty you're-so-not-funny-hiding-my-bra,-you're-definitely-in-big-trouble-and-will-be-hearing-about-this-when-i-get-home-because-now-I'm-going-to-be-late-for-work message, when i opened my closet door to put my shoes on and saw my bra sitting there on the top of all of my shoes.  I have no idea how it got there, but finding my bra was worth being late for work by 5 minutes.

someone should put me in diapers

So I am 9 1/2 weeks along now, and definitely feeling it.  Lately I have been having a really hard time sleeping.  I get super uncomfortable, tossing and turning.  I am usually a stomach sleeper, but now it feels like someone is poking me in the stomach every time I roll onto my stomach.  I usually wake up for hours at a time and can't fall back asleep.  So my doctor prescribed me some anti-nausea medicine that makes me super drowsy so I can sleep better at night. Well Wednesday night was the first night I took it, and I slept like a baby. It was amazing.  I fell asleep right away and never woke up once.  At about 7 o clock in the morning I had a strange dream that I was going to the bathroom. The only weird thing about my dream was that I could not figure out why gravity wasn't working, because instead of my pee stream going into the toilet, it was running up my back.  I was seriously confused until I woke up and realized I wet the bed! Usually my body wakes me a up at least once a night to go to the bathroom, but my medicine knocked me out so much I didn't even wake to know I had to pee!  Thank goodness Erik was already at work because if he was home he would have freaked.  When I told him I wet the bed that morning he laughed at me for so long and still won't let me live it down.

Last Thursday I had another ultra sound and it was so cool! Our little baby was waving to us as if it knew that we were looking at it. We also heard the heartbeat! I didn't think we would be able to at 9 weeks so I was so surprised when she turned it on. I definitely cried. It made being pregnant so much more real to me. I really feel like there is something growing inside of me now. It's such a scary/good feeling knowing that my baby is 100% dependent on me. I already feel like I'm bonding with my baby! Erik and I always try and think of what it will be. Erik wants a boy (of course) and I obviously want a girl. I have a feeling it will be a boy though, and the heartbeat was a bit faster (174) so i think it will be a boy. We won't find out for a while though! Here is the video of my ultra sound that Erik took, enjoy!

Beachin', Again

We went to the beach again this past weekend, except this time we brought along some good friends of ours.

Taking the ferry to Balboa Island

Us with Amber's cute headband.

Of course we had to ride bikes.

A hottie on Balboa Island. Later at that exact spot an old guy gave us the birdie. Thanks.

The "Epic Burrito" equals dinner plus breakfast

Amber flew home the next day to go to one of her BFF, Karissa Jarvis' Endowment session.

Ha get it?

Amber forgot her hat, score.

Something is very wrong with this picture... 

Beach fire time

We showed up with NO wood, lighter fluid, food, anything, but ended up bumming everything off very generous people.

Thank you trash can.

We also found some perfect working kites in the trash. So we used them and then took them with us. And yes we totally felt like bums.

Newport Beach Temple. Beautiful.

Above the front door. 

Sad and awkward with out Amber.

Bonus: Part of Amber's sister Aubrey's graduation present. Hubba-hubba.
