Saltine Crackers, mayo, and cheese!!!

Yall are SO BORING by the way.

I'll tell you one thing

Getting pregnant is a foreign country was a MISTAKE!

I forgot how terrible it was when I felt at home...
now I'm in such unknown territory feeling miserable!!!


Do I crave everything I CAN'T have???

I would kill for a
Schlotzsky's Turkey Original LARGE
or a
CHEESE pizza from that place in NYC I love



I wrote now 45 ENTRIES this month!!!

I need a life!

too fat

Yay I'm back!! (and no surprise there were no family updates)
my labtop broke so I'm using the desktop.

Anyway Chris is in Germany for a class till Sat. night.
I'm excited for a whole week of peace and quiet.
I plan to do NOTHING :) The house is clean so as long as I keep it that way then all I have to do is take care of Lily and RELAX!!!

So Chris has been on a HARCORE diet the past month, because he failed his tape (body fat test). Everyday he eats
Breakfast- 1 bowl of special K cereal or fiber one
lunch- a slimfast and an energy bar
dinner- a smart one meal
(pretty much NOTHING)

so he lost weight... ALOT of weight.
Well how they test in the army is the measure your neck and your stomach and figure out your body fat.
Here's the problem... Chris lost A LOT of weight in his stomach AND a lot of weight in his NECK!!
so no surprise he failed anyway.
He's been doing PT (physical training) 2-3 times a day!

It's just not fair.
We are WAY over due for becoming E-3 and unless his body fat gets down we'll be E-2 FOREVER!
Pretty much the army needs a new way of testing body fat, because evety body is different.
Anyway that's enough.

our sunday afternoon

This afternoon we got sandwiches and went and had a picnic by the lake. It was really fun! Lily loved feeding the ducks and watching them race to the bread.

I REALLY want another girl

but my gut is still that it's going to be a boy.

I really don't mind having a boy, but I have such CUTE girlie things AND a name I want to use...

But the morning sickness from 1-10 is 3 where as with Lily it was 9.
And I'm just not feeling pregnant at all half the time.
I KNOW it's too early to tell but my guts on a boy.
I wish I could have all girls like my mom... and one boy for Chris and the last name

Lily has gotten more wild over night. I FEAR her turning two. Especially with an infant around.
I'm starting to think I'm not quite ready to be a mother of 2 yet... too late now!

80's night

Our group
my two favorite chicks
getting ready

My little bean

Baby O'Neal is around the size of a kidney bean.

I'm 8 weeks along

I've decided on my girl name :)

I'll have to make a few calls to get permission, but I'm SO IN LOVE with the name.

And there's some background to it, so it's EVEN BETTER!!!

AND It's a winter baby name :)

It's Friday!!

Today will be one BUSY day for me. This morning I got up and went to mandatory training for the soldiers and sold burritos for the FRG. It was very chill actually, but then again I was a little late due the having no idea where it was! Then I came home and I guess the ride home did it to me, but I felt weird and started feeling sick so I took a nap. Now that I’ve woken up I have to HURRY! I have to get this house spotless for Chris’s men only barbeque tonight, I have to get ready and go to a friend’s Pampered Chef party that I committed to go to a couple weeks back, and then I got to hurry and get ready AGAIN and go to shape with some other friends for the 80’s party. Pretty much I’m glad I took that nap. Those two events interfere with each other so I’ll go to part of the papered chef and part of the 80’s party! Blah! I’d rather just go to bed haha. But I already make those commitments AND I’m not allowed in my house tonight. So oh well. I better get to cleaning.

Wives Tales on Gender

According to this so far I’m having another girl…
we’ll see!!
(It was right last time)


You had morning sickness early in pregnancy
Your baby's heart rate is at least 140 beats per minute
You are carrying the weight in your hips and rear
Your left breast is larger than your right breast
Your hair develops red highlights
You are carrying high
Your belly looks like a watermelon
You are craving sweets
You are craving fruit
You crave orange juice
You don't look quite as good as normal during pregnancy
You are moodier than usual during pregnancy
Your face breaks out more than usual
You refuse to eat the heel of a loaf of bread
Your breasts have really blossomed!
Your pillow faces south when you sleep
Your urine is a dull yellow color
You hang your wedding ring over your belly and it moves from side to side
You add your age at the time of conception and the number for the month you conceived and the sum is an odd number


You didn't experience morning sickness in early pregnancy
Your baby's heart rate is less than 140 beats per minute
You are carrying the extra weight out front
Your belly looks like a basketball
Your areolas have darkened considerably
You are carrying low
You are craving salty or sour foods
You are craving protein -- meats and cheese
Your feet are colder than they were before pregnancy
The hair on your legs has grown faster during pregnancy
Your hands are very dry
Your pillow faces north when you sleep
Dad-to-be is gaining weight, right along with you
Pregnancy has you looking better than ever
Your urine is bright yellow in color
Your nose is spreading
You hang your wedding ring over your belly and it moves in circles
You are having headaches
You add your age at the time of conception and the number for the month you conceived and the sum is an even number

Little miss

This morning I woke up at 7:30 and could not stay out of the bathroom. I couldn’t even keep down some jello cups I bought yesterday. So at around 9 I decided to go back to sleep till Lily woke me up. Well I woke up at 11:30 and didn’t hear a peep. So I got worried and went to check on Lilsters. That sweet child of mine was just sitting there playing on her own! She is such a good girl! Especially because I needed it this morning! So I gave her a rockin’ breakfast! She had cinnamon egos, some jello, a banana, and some whole milk mixed with a little chocolate milk! She was in heaven!

Things that are bothering me!

How Chris just lays down at night and falls asleep instantly. My mind wanders for ATLEAST 20 minutes.

How Chris isn’t as into “Twilight” as I am

How Lily like to stand up in her booster seat

How the summer STILL hasn’t started and probably won’t till July and it will only last a week

How I want to plant a garden of Tulips in my front yard, but I can’t find them anywhere!

How sticky syrup is and that Lily likes to put it in her hair.

.Okay here’s the bottom line… EVERYTHING is bothering me.

my main man

Last night Chris was really sore from the hard Pt he had to do that morning and afternoon so he picked himself up some muscle rub. It smelled like pepto bismol and mint and REALLY STRONG! I couldn’t handle it. So I told him he was making me sick. I then said that I was sleeping downstairs tonight. He all the sudden told me no and that he would. I thought that was sweet that he gave our nice, big, comfy bed up to sleep on a lame couch just for me. I always love all the little things he does for me. Well YESTERDAY I went grocery shopping and got a good amount of food. THEN he got home and it turns out he surprises me with food! So we have an absurd about of food in our house, and this morning I couldn’t find a thing to eat! Pregnancy is getting on my nerves big time!!

deja vu

I went to the grocery store today, because we had no more food in our house. BAD IDEA!! I was in and out of that bathroom and couldn’t buy like anything. It was TERRIBLE! It reminded me of that road trip to Utah when I threw up every 5 minutes! I came home and RAN to the bathroom. Lily is always so interested! She loves watching me throw up. Overall it’s been a pretty crappy day!


and I've been feeling SO bloated! Seriously I’m not showing AT ALL and I look FAT in all my clothes. I’m wearing the baggiest things I have already

today is lame.

Baby O'Neal is about the size of a blueberry

Today is my first day this pregnancy that I’ve thrown up. To make it worse I ate nothing so I was pretty much just dry heaving. I can’t seem to stop (except right now) NOTHING in my kitchen sounds or looks appetizing. I also have a little cramp going on which is scaring me. I just feel TERRIBLE! I was feeling okay the last couple days and then it just hit today. I can't wait till 2nd trimester!!!
I need to get her a doll soon!
(she JUST woke up)

momma's new hair :)

I like it because it's a redish brown.

I actually put auburn brown in my hair and it turned out BAD!!!

So I put ash brown in my hair, but it kept a little red so now it's WAY better!!!

mirror shots
I'm SO not showing yet lol

I think EVERYONE should try a grilled cheese, ham, and pineapple sandwich!!!

oh and there's a 80% chance i'm going to the the ranch this summer.

and a 50% I'm going to mom's this Christmas!!!

parents visit

Mom TRIED to take Lily home with her in her bag :)
just the normal stuff
We had LOTS of fun!! Went to Brugge and Brussels. Ate good food, and just relaxed.

stupid stupid stupid!

I forgot how much I hate first trimester! I Hate it so much! I’m at that point where every smell, every taste, every eye contact gives me TERRIBLE nausea! But I’m not yet to the throwing up stage. So there is NO relief. Not even for 10 min. I stay sick constantly. I need to just go to sleep for the rest of the 3 months! Chris is taking my parents to the airport right now. I wish they could just live here! Especially when I’m sick here! I could throw up right now! UGH!!! Kill me! Why do I get pregnant again??

Tuesday, April 15, 2008

The place is defiantly not done, or even close, but it’s a working progress. I decided to take some pictures of our progress so far, because it’s CLEAN for the first time since our household good got here! That was a NIGHTMARE! These are just of our downstairs… the upstairs isn’t all the way clean yet.


You are pissing me off! I even put my blog on private and I WOULD keep it that way but I got complaints from people I actually want to read! You need to Stop. You don't even know how mad you're making me!

pregnancy update

I’m tired! I get a little nausea here and there, but nothing to complain about. I’m ALWAYS STARVING to where my stomach is grumbling, but not one thing looks good. My appetite is gone! Headaches all the time, and my hair is growing WAY TOO FAST! My boobs are tender and growing FAST! That’s all I’ve really noticed lately. Oh and I’ve had a couple normal cravings!

today I went shopping

now there's food at my house when


She's coming till the 21st! I love visitors!

Lynn Wilson

They need to go internationally. I've been wanting them SO MUCH!!!! Nothing compares!

I'd kill for one!!!

feels like home

I really love how my place is starting to look. There’s A LOT of work to be done, but slowly it’s starting to come together and becoming more ME! It can NEVER be fully me unless we just had a bunch of money to spend, but I think it’s still nice. My colors are OF COURSE black, white, and red. There are some colors that get mixed it, but those are the MAIN colors! I’ll take pics when everything is or is almost done!

staying home.

So I decided that pregnancy is not good for my social life. Before becoming pregnant I was going to events, meeting people, and trying to make friends. Now I don’t want anything to do with anyone. I know it’s going to hurt me in the end, but I just don’t want to leave this house. I’m sick, moody, and tired. I just like to chill out with Lily and do absolutely nothing. No trying to make conversation, no trying to plan little get togethers, no anything. I mean don’t get me wrong. I’m in this new environment and I, like anyone else, needs friends. But I don’t know anyone enough to feel comfortable being completely myself around and just don’t have the energy to try. You know tomorrow I’ll feel completely different but for now I’m going to sleep.

Good night!

eggs are gross!

I HATE devil eggs! I think they stink, they taste weirs, and I’ve never really liked them. We’d always have them at holidays and everyone seemed to enjoy them so I’d eat one and realize how much they stink! Well I just maid a dozen eggs worth of devil eggs! I had to have them. I was getting sick thinking about wanting them! Lily had 2 and Chris had one…. Where did the rest go?

My first OFFICIAL Pregnancy craving this pregnancy!

People bother me.

Good Morning!!

I have thought of some of the CUTEST names!
I'm so excited.

short little nothings

OH and all yall are SLACKIN'!
I live too far away to not get
constant updates


Ever since I’ve been reading a chapter of Twilight to Chris every night, I’ve been going to bed early again. So right now I go to bed at 10 and wake up at 8ish. So I feel MUCH HEALTHIER! I really like the book so far! We’ll be reading chapter 5 tonight! This book is going to take FOREVER at the rate we’re reading it, but this is the only way we can read every night so who cares! Also last night Lily woke up at 2 am and was screaming! No matter what we thought to do she would just scream! So for the first time since my first WIC appointment here I made Lily a bottle with formula! I put a few teething tablets in it and she was out! I mean seriously it’s 10 am and she’s STILL asleep! That’s NOT Lily! So either she was starving which I can’t see, or teething. Maybe she just couldn’t get comfortable. Whatever the reason, she’s sleeping like a baby now!

God Bless HOME!!!

I miss home already.
I miss being somewhere where I can understand pretty much everyone.
…where I can meet people easier.
…where I’m up at the same time as my family and friends online.
…where I can go to the local grocery store or even better TARGET!
I just miss having a normal lifestyle.

I miss America!

I'm not getting sick!!

... and for some reason it's making question my pregnancy!!! I need a sign!
(you know besides the test results and the whole no period thing!)
last pregnancy I spent it SICK and now I'm just chillin' like it's nothing!

something feels wrong.
