The Undomestic Goddess

I had received this book with a few other "Sophia Kinsella" books a while ago. It's been a while since I've read something I decided to start on this one. I think I read it within a week, it was definitely one I couldn't put down.

The book starts out with a girl working at a high end law firm. A problem arises and she finds herself out of a job and when she goes out of town, ends up being mistaken for a housekeeper. Most of the rest of the book is about how she finds out what she really wants in life and what is most important to her. Defnitely a good book I would recommend reading if you're into the "chicklit" books.

I have my next monthly appt next Friday then 4 weeks after that we'll go back to see what we're having...I can't wait!!

Time to Spring Forward

This weekend we turned our clocks up an hour. It always takes me a while to get used to the time change. We went to bed a little later last night and it was so hard to get up this morning. However, today seems to be going by faster than usual so that's always a good thing.

On the other hand...spring is finally here!! Ok so technically not until Saturday but with the weather warming up and being decent outside I'm going to say it's here already. I can't wait for the flowers to start coming up and those evenings that we can take walks everyday. Our dogs will be in heaven! Spring will also bring mushroom season. Oh how I can't wait to fix up a bunch. Time for horseback riding will come very soon also...I of course won't be able to and I'll be looking forward to Brandon rubbing it in my face every time he goes. ;)

Nice weather always seems to put everyone in a better mood and have a more permanent smile on their face and we all can benefit from that!!

11 Weeks

I'm 11 weeks now and finally starting to feel better. By better I mean the nausea has decreased alot. I still have to eat quite a bit and of course I still get tired but I think I'll have that most of the pregnancy. I had my doc appointment Friday and it went well. I had my sonogram first which I have to say is the neatest thing ever! I got to see the baby on the monitor for a while and hear the heartbeat. It even jumped a few times so that was cool to see too. After the sonogram I had to see the doctor for a checkup then get my blood drawn. I hate needles with a passion so I was really not looking for to it. Thank goodness it was over in about 5 min. but I now have a bruise on my arm from where the needle was to remind of that everyday. Not fun! I've also had a problem with my right foot swelling for years. I mentioned it to the doc so he sent me to the hospital for a sonogram of my legs to make sure I didn't have any blood clots....none thank goodness!! I still have to deal with a swollen foot though. :(  For those that are curious here are 2 pics from sonogram...such a cute baby already. ;)

I finally finished a book this month.....actually it only took me a week to read. I was in our local outlet store when I spotted this "Sisterchicks" book. It was only $1 and looked like a good read so I went ahead and bought it. It's called "Sisterchicks do the Hula."  It's about 2 best friends that go to Hawaii for their birthdays and end up on various adventures and reflecting on their lives. It's definitely a chicklit book but I've come to learn that those are my favorite. This is only one of a series of Sisterchick books  and I hope to find and read them all. If you are into chicklit books definitely read this!

New movies

We hadn't rented any new movies in a long time so we decided to get 2 last night....2012 and Time Traveler's Wife. We watched 2012 first and it was pretty good. I think Brandon liked it more than I did. Then we watched Time Traveler's Wife. I thought it was going to be hard to understand but it actually wasn't once I started getting into it. I really liked this movie and of course cried at the end. I'm such a sap! Even though 2012 wouldn't be my favorite movie, I would still recommend both of these to anyone thinking about watching them.

Weekend Getaway

We've decided to take a weekend trip to St. Louis either this weekend or next. We'll probably go the a casino and maybe the Arch but I need some recommendations for hotels, restaurants, etc. We'll be arriving Friday evening and leaving Sunday. We may even end up staying in Fairview Heights to save money on the hotel.

10 Weeks

I"m 10 weeks today. I still have nausea basically every day and I'm really hoping it goes away by next week. I'm still moody and my face has been breaking out like crazy. I have an appt. on Friday to hearbeat and my first checkup....hope everything goes well!
