Sisters Quickie

I just had to title the post that cause I think I am funny! Last weekend 2 out of my 3 sisters and I traveled down to St. George and Las Vegas for a weekend getaway. Partly for my sister Jamie's 30th and partly cause we're AWESOME!

We left Friday morning and headed down. Got down there and hung out for a bit then decided to go to dinner at Red Lobster. Which I was totally stoked for since I could actually eat the plate I adore there! It was heaven! We then searched the entire town for one of my favorite movies, Bridesmaids, finally found it then rewarded ourselves with some Swig Ice Cream. If you haven't had there ice cream its a MUST!

Got back home, got in our comfies and played card games, and then ended the night watching Bridesmaids. The next morning I got to sleep in, while the other two crazies went to the gym! We got all ready for a day of shopping and of course...more food. We hit up Cafe Rio, Charming Charlies, and JC Penney's and then headed back on the road for VIVA LAS VEGAS!

Jamie's one request was to go to Cheesecake Factory which uhm ya!! After a freaking delish meal we walked around Caesars Palace, and found a MAC store. My sister Kylie is a cosmetologist so we get a 30% discount on the makeup and it was like a little piece of heaven. I got a concealer, Lipstick, and 4 eyeshadows! By the time we had walked to dinner, ate dinner, shopped, and walked back to our room we we're dead. So we old ladies called it a night and went to bed!

We got up and heard that an amazing place to grab breakfast was at a place on the strip called "Hash House A Go Go" we found it and it was a thirty five minute wait. Annoying. But we stayed. And boy are we glad. Just take a second and look at the size of my Pancake! Definitely a must every time! 

We then headed to the Outlets and did some shopping but sadly there wasn't a ton to buy. So it was kinda a fail. We drowned our sorrows in ice cream. And headed home. So the moral of the whole trip was...FOOD. It's what we lived for and I don't regret it one bit. It was short and sweet and just what this momma needed to come home a better mom.

4 years

On Sunday January 11 we celebrated our 4 year anny! I know everyone says it but it has flown by. Some days I am shocked when I am a mom to almost two kids and I have been married for four years cause I still feel like the 18 year old that wasn't looking for anything serious when she stumbled upon a Jake. Who lied and said he wasn't either... YA RIGHT!

This year we wanted just a fun date night cause we don't get these as much anymore! So we first started off the day with a movie! So simple but we we're stoked! We went to Meet the Mormons cause we told each other we would wait to see it till we could actually watch it together. It was incredible. Of course a tear was shed, but I would highly recommend to ANYONE!

We then headed up to SLC for some shopping and dinner. We got to City Creek and I dragged Jake around. He had never been though so it was fun to show him around. Then we went to the Joseph Smith Memorial Building and ended up talking with the LDS Sister Missionaries for 25 mins. They we're so cute and sure made me miss Sister Romriell! We made reservations for The Roof which I also highly recommend. And we we're placed like RIGHT in front of the temple! It was gorgeous!

Cute little Jake surprised me with this bracelet with my initial. Then I have a necklace that I wear all the time that has Ashton's initial and he gave me a "B" charm for Boston. Tender! I surprised him with a new hat, which he adored!

Jake and I kept saying that this was the best anniversary yet and how every year gets better and better. Our First year of marriage was rough, Second year was fixing our issues and learning and growing, third year was rough at the beginning but ended up good, but so far this year is starting off amazing! We watched our Wedding Video and its still my favorite. But I was telling Jake that how I felt about him then is uncomparible to how I feel about him now. Sure love this man I have by my side, he is my everything! Glad he picked me for eternity!

Missed 17 weeks (oops) so you just get the picture

How far along? 18 Weeks

Maternity Clothes? My mom and sisters gave me a handful of maternity clothes for Xmas, I pretty much have been wearing those constantly.

Stretch marks? nope. time.. give it time..

Sleep? Last night was ROUGH. And the night before. I just couldn't get comfortable and I felt sick. I hope its not like that the rest of the time but it could be worse

Best moment this week? Monday I felt like Jenessa pre-pregnancy which I haven't felt since I was 5 weeks pregnant. I got a ton done and felt like a contributing member of society. 

Miss anything? Running. I was reminiscing on my marathon last night and I got a little nostalgia. I could totally run but it probably wouldn't be the smartest since I haven't ran this entire pregnancy.

Cravings? Apples, Cool Ranch Doritos, Green Salads, Water, Milkshakes, and French fries.

Any Aversions? chick fil a, its made me sick way too many times this pregnancy. Sad sad day

Showing? OH yes! Sometimes I wonder how big I will be come third trimester cause Im definitely showing. 

Belly button in or out? In. 

Wedding ring on or off? on

Happy or Moody? Eh, last week was hard. I didn't feel in control of any of my emotions. 

Looking forward to? All my goals and plans for this month. I plan to finish painting our room, start on Boston's room, organize the basement toys, and much more. Wont get it all done but I am just excited for the possibility.
