nice day for a white wedding

 I feel like I suddenly popped out this week! big mama coming through!

How far along? 22 Weeks
Total weight gain: 9-10 lbs.
Maternity clothes? no, but I did bust out the belly band yesterday. I'm on the fence about it.
Stretch marks? nope
Sleep: my heartburn is under control thanks to Tums right before bedtime.
Best moment this week: being in Utah for my dear Sarah Emily's wedding, it was fantastic. And then coming home to my sweetie, I missed him so much!

Miss Anything? sliced turkey sandwiches, it is so hard to resist Jimmy John's and Di Bella's!
Movement: I was poking my belly 2 nights ago and the babe totally karate kicked me. I was freaking out, it was so awesome. She's a strong one.
Food cravings: Ice cream all the time, I could totally go for Coldstone right now. Lots of fruit too and french fries.
Anything making you queasy or sick: the airplane ride home from Utah. I thought I was going to lose it. I never get motion sick but the turbulence plus the sweaty man sitting next to me weren't my friends.
Gender: Girl still :)

Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: I had cramps last night and that wasn't fun but a nice hot bath and some hot chocolate soothed them.
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or Moody most of the time: mostly happy, some moodiness this past weekend but I think I would have been moody if I was pregnant or not. Family drama, oh gracious.
Looking forward to: A graduating next week and us moving back to Utah in 2 weeks (can you believe it???)

SNOW! @ Millcreek Inn
D Murph and me at the temple 
These are the two photos that I took of Sarah's wedding. It rained the entire time at the temple and then snowed at the reception. Utah weather is nuts in April, let's be frank. But the ceremony was really sweet and I somehow managed not to bawl through the entire thing. Then Danielle and I raced up to the reception site and made the center pieces for the dinner and if I do say so myself it was absolutely gorgeous. Speaking of gorgeous...Sarah looked stunning and of course, because I suck at taking pictures, I didn't get one photo of her. But I did video the cake cutting, don't mind the shakiness or the bad iPhone video quality por favor.

Congrats to Stephen and Sarah! Thanks for letting me be a part of your day. LOVE YOU!!!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone! Andrew and I just watched this video and it is a wonderful way to start off this Easter Sunday.

It looks like we've been robbed

We are living in squalor. Not exactly squalor but close. I had the genius idea to put everything we want to sell on craigslist the moment we got back from NYC and now we are living out of cardboard boxes. If we had children dinner time on the hardwood floor would be a great teaching moment, "Now children this is the way that some cultures eat their meals, isn't this fun?!" And it would be fun until my bum starts to ache. Luckily we have a wonderful couple in the ward who is letting us use their cardboard table and chairs. My bum thanks you Emily!

Andrew saved some great boxes from the dumpster a few weeks ago, who knew boxes could be so valuable? The bookshelf and the rug should be out of here in the next week or so too.

The dining room has also become A's office because well who needs a desk during the last month of their  MBA program? Sold it! #winning

as well as both of our dressers...

We look homeless.

I think someone really jumped the gun this time.
