Lesson 145: More info on the pregnancy...

I did not mention much about the pregnancy in my announcement post so here is a bit more back story...

Yes we were trying to get pregnant. This is our second go around. Last year we went through a miscarriage after just 9 weeks so we took a year off to just relax.

I found out I was pregnant at just under 5 weeks. The reason I found out so quickly is because I was taking pregnancy tests just about every other day. I do know how conception works so I certainly am exaggerating when I say how often I was checking... but let's just say it saved us a lot of money getting pregnant so quickly after trying....

I had a pretty easy 1st trimester. There was some ickyness feelings but nothing major. I feel like I am pooching out a bit but I can't tell if it is because I am just a chunk or there is actually something to the pooch.

We have had 2 ultrasounds so far and everything looks good which is great news. I am constantly skeptical just because of last year.

That is about everything that has been going on with me....

Oh and my pet peeve is when a child is acting naughty or gross and the adult turns to me and says, are you ready for this? or something like this is what you have to look forward to... I HAVE been around children and babies before, in fact I lived with my sister and her baby from birth to 2 years and her son who was a little older so yeah, I think I know how babies and kids can be.

Ok I will try to keep the blog posted on any update but I will also try to not destroy everyone's faith in mankind by blogging a weekly prego update.

Lesson 141: Lauren Conrad you have done it again :)

There is no question that I love love love Lauren Conrad :) For my birthday I got not one, but TWO copies of her new book Beauty. My only regret is that I did not road trip down to California for her book signing... which my mom was totally up for.

Here are some awesome things I learned from Lauren from my new book:

Eye brow makeup is just glorified eye shadow! I already have a brow pencil (which I have never used... until now) and I grabbed some brown eye shadow.

If you have trouble with pencil eyeliner smudging this is most likely the result of your eye producing oil which is a good thing because you will have younger looking eyes for a longer time.... SWEET! She just took a nuisance and turned it into a blessing :)

The different places you have breakouts on your face are for different reasons. Like by your mouth is a result of hormones while in between your brows is most likely from over indulging in decadent foods... yes a section on blemishes is absolutely disgusting but you gotta face them sometime... in a manner of speaking. 

And now some pictures of Max on two dog beds :)  

Last night I was thinking about something someone posted on FB a while back that I really loved. 

The young recently married person posted on their own wall something like:
Love is thinking your husband's snoring is adorable. 

To which someone much older and wiser replied:
That is not love, that is the honeymoon phase. Love is hating your husband's snoring and thinking it is down right terrible and still sleeping in the same bed as him.
