30 Weeks-Sexy Lady...ha!

Well, I've started my 3rd Trimester and am starting to feel it! I've notice I'm becoming a little less patient with my hubby and daughter, especially twords the end of the day..and I'm getting more and more tired lately...oh well! I'm trying to make the best of it and warn Galen when I'm in one of my "moods"...he seems to be taking it fine. I've been trying to work out lifting weights and on the treadmill everyday, and I think that's helping a bit with the tiredness, but nothing can help the fact that I'm getting fatter and fatter by the second:) Well, maybe I don't need those extra 2 cookies at the end of the day, but what the hell! I'm headed out to get a massage in an hour, so I really can't complain that much! hehehe.

Here are some pics of me at 29 weeks. I've been terrible about taking pictures this pregnancy. I'll try and keep up on this every week for the next 2 months.

I love my DOGS!

This is an ode to the most wonderful, beautiful, loyal, loving dogs in the world.
Cali (our black lab) is almost 4 years old. She's been Galen's very best friend since we brought her home as a puppy. She's never gone to the bathroom in our house, or chewed anything or dug in the yard..not even as a 6 week old pup, she's really the best dog ever...She goes to work with Galen almost every day and just hangs out in "her office" all day long. I swear, it's her favorite place to be. She's an English-style lab so she's not a very good hunter, in fact, she's deathly afraid of the gun, and anything that makes loud noises...but she's a wonderful dog, we love her and all of her weirdo quirks.

Monty is our yellow lab. She's about 9 months old now and has become "my dog" over this past year. She loves me, and I have to say it's pretty cool to have a dog follow your every move...even though I do trip over her at least 3 times a day. She even comes to the bathroom with me, so I never get any it's me and Ava and Monty piled into the bathroom while I do my business...what a life. Monty is the biggest dope you'll ever meet, but she's so sweet, a gentle giant...the only thing she does wrong is dig in our yard...but that's pretty good considering she's just a pup. She's becoming a great hunting dog, so that makes Galen happy that at least one of our so called labs isn't afraid of a gun!
I love my dogs...I'm so happy to have them in my life, they make me so happy...except for all of the dog hair all over my house! Cali and Monty have been so good with all children allow Ava to crawl all over them, ride them, pull their tails and ears, and do just about anything to them without even a growl...they're the absolute best pets we could ever have:)
Anyway, I think this pregnancy is making me a little sappy! I'll stop now!

Just wanted to say a Very Happy Birthday to my beautiful older sister:) Happy Birthday Kylie. I love you so much. Thank you so much for being such a wonderful sister and my best friend. And thanks so much for raising two of the most adorable and incredible kids I've ever known. Love you! Oh, and just to let you know, I won't even be 30 for another year and a half, hahaha!

Leather and Lace...Stevie was in Seattle this weekend.

I had such a great time in Seattle this past weekend. I left Ava here with Galen (what a great Dad he is) and flew up to Seattle on Friday. My friend Lolo picked me up from the airport and we went to Bellevue Square and shopped around and met our friend Stacie for lunch there. Then I just went back to the Blyth's house for dinner and went to bed.
On Saturday we hosted one of my very best friends, Coffey's bridal shower (sooooo many girls came)! And then Sat night went out to the Boxcar in Magnolia for the bachelorette party, it was a total blast, even though I am pregnant and wasn't able to get as crazy as the rest of the ladies! Thanks so much to everyone who helped with the parties and to everyone who came. Coffey has such wonderful girlfriends, it was so fun to see everyone and I'm SO excited for Maui next month!!
