the belly! 29 weeks
This weekend was so so fun. We went camping with my family at Tropic Reservior. It turned out to be an interesting trip for a couple reasons. One, I think I might be getting too fat to drag my belly so far out into the hills. This makes me sad it's hard for me to slow down and not be able to do everything I am used to! And second we had a stowaway join us on the camping trip. Pooshkie my cat!! We have a tent trailer and it was all folded down and ready to go, but they left the little side door open to throw a few more things in and I guess the cat must have jumped in there while they weren't looking. They shut the door and four hours later when we arrived at the campsight and opened the door she hopped out! I don't know how she surived the drive there is no ventilation in there and it's really hot! It was so funny at first we laughed for about ten minutes until we realized.... what the heck are we going to do with this stupid cat for the next two days???? If we set her down she would run away, but we didn't have anything to tie her up with and didn't want to leave her in the trailer because she would pee in there. We did manage to rig a few things up for her, but she spent the majority of her time in a one foot by one foot crate. Sad, :( but there wasn't anything else we could do! stupid cat!

What A CrAzY Day!!!

Yesterday was such a fun day! All of my friends were here from out of town so a couple weeks ago we all planned to get together and have breakfast. Or so I thought. We always try to do something when we are all in town so I didn't think anything of it, but when I arrived at Cori's house for our "breakfast" SURPRISE it was a baby shower for me! I was so tired that morning I was almost considering showing up in my pjs with no makeup and wet hair. Yikes that would have been bad! I was so confused and feel a little dumb that I never figured it out haha. Ashton and my friends are good secret keepers :) It was tons of fun and I got tons of good stuff that little Sophie will love! Thanks so much to my friends for planning this for me and thanks to everyone that came! I can't wait until my friends get pregnant so we can have more baby showers ;) They are just that fun.

Also it was my high school five year reunion. It sounded like a good idea at the time when I said that I would go to it, but when it really came down to that night I did not want to go! Call me antisocial. But I did end up going because I did not want to regret it later. It was fun and the food was good. I didn't really talk to anyone except my friends I already talk to anyway, but it was cool to see everyone! Anyway, it was just a crazy day knowing that my baby is coming soon and that high school was so long ago. We are all growing up! Here are some pictures of my baby shower.

28 wks

i signed up to get these emails every week. it's fun to see how baby is growing and what she's doing this week!

How your baby's growing:By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.

6 months


i am so excited that i am at the end of the sixth month. do you know what this means?!?!? i am in the third and final trimester! yay! i can't wait to meet this little baby and 3 months seems so far away and also so little time when it's the end of my life as i know it! we are thinking sophie lyn dodge for her name, but no guarantees until it's written on the birth certificate cuz we all know how i like to change my mind. i like it because sophie means wisdom and i hope she'll have a lot of that! we are having tons of fun buying and painting stuff for the nursery, and most fun of all buying little girl clothes. this girl will be spoiled! here is my 27 week pic.

so i have never felt so stupid in my life. long story, but i got a scholarship and financial aid from the government for the 2008-2009 school year, but i graduated in december with my bachelors so i was done with school. i had signed up for classes the next semester just because i hadn't found a job yet and school would have been free, but about a week after classes started i got a job so i dropped the classes. i few days later i got a scholarship refund check in the mail that i just well.... tossed in the trash because they always say you don't get your extra money of you don't take classes. i also threw away my dixie one credit card because i'm done with school i didn't think i needed any of that stuff anymore! so a few days ago (which is 6 months after i got the check i threw away) i get this email that says our records show you never cashed your refund check of $730. so now i get to go around the college talking to everyone trying to figure how the heck i can get my money now and i have to feel like an idiot everytime when i tell them i threw the check away and then they proceed to tell me how dumb i am. but i don't care. just give me my freakin $730 and leave me alone. $730 is like $7.3 million when you are in my position. moral of story. never throw a check away.
