20 weeks, it's a GIRL!

 This was a very exciting week! My tummy is getting pretty round, and mostly I think it's pretty cute. Sometimes I get frustrated because my clothes don't fit, but overall I feel great. Phil and I were both extremely excited for our July 3rd ultrasound. It was awesome to see our baby. The ultrasound tech said with confidence that our baby is a GIRL! We are so happy and I felt relieved. We both wanted a girl. It just felt right. I was feeling worried that if it was a boy I would be disappointed. It is also a lot easier for us to agree on girl names! Besides that she looked healthy too! During the ultrasound she stayed pretty curled up and pushed against the placenta which made it hard to get a profile of her face. Both her legs and arms were crossed for part of it, and she was sucking on her finger. Cute! 

Since we found out the gender of our baby on July 3rd we thought it would be fun to announce it to family with a firework. Right after our ultrasound appointment we went looking for a pink one. It took us three firework stands to find this pink fountain! We decided we would do it after the firework show in Idaho Falls so everyone could be there. It seemed like we had to wait forever, and my nieces and nephews kept bothering me to tell them. Well we finally got home late and were able to share the news. We're so excited about our little girl :)

A few pictures from February through April

That awkward jumble of a post when you realize you haven't posted for 3 months. 

Bonfire with Garrett and Emily on the river bank in February
Valentine's day chocolate fondue. Yum! I love you babe. 
Spearing bananas is serious business

Hannah and Joe got married on February 17th! They looked so happy. Hannah and I have been friends since we were babies. She is so beautiful!

I did it! 
Thanks to all my family for their support at graduation. My Grandma and Grandpa Hall even came during a busy time for them. I love my family :) 
We went on a graduation vacation to Jackson Hole. We loved this little cabin. There was even an indoor pool and hot tub. 
Hiking near the Tetons
I went paint balling for the first time for my nephew Mesafint's 16th birthday. It was so fun. I still want a chance to shot those guys who gave me bruises!  
I got to babysit this little cutie (my nephew) while his parents were in Haiti.

I'm graduating!

And I'm super excited about it! It's amazing to think that I am almost to the finish line, finishing what I started 4 long years ago. It's crazy to look back and realize how much I've learned and how much I've changed since I started college. I love BYU-Idaho! (Now if I can just make it through the next 2 weeks...)

I'm back from hibernation

Have you missed me? Between moving and the holidays and a new semester.... this blog has been neglected. But it's a new month and the blog has little hearts on it now! Hurray! (Don't you love Valentine's Day?)

Let me just tell you what life has been like recently.

Wake up
Go to class
Go to another class
Do homework
Go to another class...
and another class
Go home
Eat dinner
Do homework
Maybe watch TV or a Movie
(Huge bowls of popcorn are involved!)

Not exactly blog material, huh?

*Isn't snoozing awful? It's like the worst kind of torture (maybe.) You just want to sleep and then 30 seconds after you drift off it rings in your ear again. And again, and again.

I live for the weekend, and if my teachers assign too much homework I GET UPSET. THAT'S WHAT THESE CAPS MEAN. I DEDICATE THIS TO MY ENGLISH TEACHER.

But this weekend should be good. Because Phil and I are going skiing. And to a barbershop concert... that Phil got us tickets for.
