That is the most current picture of me with my belly looking like it's going to POP! Feeling at times like I'm going to pop too! On Saturday I was preparing the house for my mom's homecoming today by cleaning up the house. I was hoping to sweep, mop, clean the bathrooms, clean the kitchen, vacuum, etc.. I cleaned the kitchen--took a break. Swept half the kitchen--took a break..swept the other half the kitchen. I decided against mopping--I mean it's been me living at the house alone for a week and almost a half...I'm not that messy ;) I just couldn't stand the standing up any longer. So, I decided the cleaning of the bathrooms and vacuuming, that would have to wait til Sunday. It's amazing how once the shopaholic I was...I have no urge, no spark to go out and do any shopping whatsoever. This pregnancy has saved me a ton of $$$ moolah! $$$ Well, speaking of cleaning and my mom, she has been gone for almost a week and a half. My brother works for RC Willey and every year if he sells a certain amount he earns a trip, all expenses paid. This year it was a cruise up the Danube River with ports throughout Germany and Austria (I think..I wasn't informed all that much). But he and his wife just had a baby a month ago--that darling little girl I posted pictures of, Madelyn. So, she wasn't up to going, so he invited my mom. Have they had fun? I don't know. Are they safe? I don't know. When are they coming home? I don't know. I WISH SHE WOULD CALL!!! I know they are coming home today, but I have no idea what time! My brother called my sister in law for about 5 minutes and said it was $.99 a minute...for that price, I know my mom wasn't going to call ;) This week I have been sick with a sinus infection and being pregnant with that is extremely miserable. Not having your mom or someone there to say "Everything is going to be alright" or just to comfort you...well, it gets lonely and it seems like the sinus infection was 10x worse---plus I'm just a baby and need my mommy. I will say that I take my mom for granted and I have missed her soo much and will be so happy when she gets home. I appreciate her so much for all she does. I'll finally have a decent dinner. Haha, JK.

2. My ringtone "Milkshake" by Kelis makes me wanna dance!
3. Splitting a few appetizers between friends doesn't make me feel so fat and full at the end of my meal :)
4. Patrick Dempsey (hubba hubba) is someone I'd like to get to know better.
5. The smell of rain and fresh cut grass reminds me so much of springtime!
6. I took a tylenol and went to bed and that made it all better.
7. And as for right now, this occupied my time, but today I'm looking forward to getting off at 5:00 and spending time with my mom before she leaves for a week. Tomorrow my plans include sleeping in and taking it easy and then getting ready for the day and running the necessary errands...that is if necessary :P

Within 5 minutes this is what was in front of our doors at work. It started as little rain drops, then tiny hard pieces of hail smacking the windows. Thunder---where was the lightning I do so love?? I guess I'll take the thunder ;) I'm so happy I could be inside to enjoy this....looking from my desk to see my freshly cleaned car be covered in hail :) Afterall, April showers bring May flowers!!!
On another note, this weekend was conference weekend! Unfortunately I wasn't able to watch all sessions. I did watch Saturday morning session, that afternoon I watched my niece and nephews while Aly and Nick got moving the rest of their stuff over to their new house! When the kids are home--Noggin rules the TV. Sunday morning we headed up to Ogden to my uncles house for a bbq birthday party for Grandma Burleigh--she turns 88 on Wednesday, April 9!!! So we listened to the morning session of conference on the way up-- I can't tell you how much I love President Uchdorft! He is a great speaker! I am sad I didn't get to hear President Monson's talk, but the wonderful thing about Comcast---On Demand!! :D I always look forward to the Ensign coming out also to actually read through the talks.
Grandma Burleigh's birthday party was really fun! It was a houseful! Not all my cousins were there but more than not. It's funny, you ask my grandma how she's doing and she says "I'm 88". She sure is feelin it! After the party it was nice to come home and just relax. It was weird to come home to an empty house. I mean an empty house because Aly and Nick have completely moved out. My kiddies are gone. They bought a home in the Lehi/Highland area. I am going to miss those kids! It's so weird to not wake up in the night when I go to the restroom and not hear Talan crying. Or when I make my lunch in the morning, hear him gooing. It's weird to not see Bryton's baseballs and footballs in the living room and Hadley's dolls and princess stuff out. When they first moved in with us, Talan was just a newborn, we've seen him grow up and move from stage to stage. We have gotten attached to these kids! I'm going to miss them!!
Bryton, future pro!!! He loves his footballs...especially if their red...Go UTES!
Pink, Pink, Pink!!! She loves Pink!
He loved Had's pink hat! Such an innocent boy.. for now ;) haha
I'm gonna miss these kids! Having them live with us for the last year has been so fun and entertaining! Everyday when I would come home from work, Talan would crawl over to me and I would pick him up and take him downstairs with me. If there were ever days I would get home and walk past him, oh would he get upset!! I'm going to miss that!
