Last day

So july ends today and tomorrow brings August,  the month we have been waiting for. Well the deadline that was fast approaching.  How does someone get ready to make a baby. Do you talk about it ahead of time or do you bring it up in the moment to bring things crashing to a halt. We both know august starts tomorrow and we both said we would start trying in August but are we just going to flip a switch in our minds and try to make a baby. Babies would change everything.  We are so happy together and everything just seems to flow nicely in our life, so how will we adjust everything to include a child or two ( twins run in leifs family).  Ahhh. Which slogan do we follow. Nike's just do it or Guinness' good things come to those who wait.

Ps. It was so much fun looking up slogans. We did not know how dirty slogans sound when you say them out loud. Our favorite dirty ones-think dirty as you read them

Put a tiger in your tank.
Finger licking good.
Great taste less filling.
Splash it all over.

I have to work all day today but when I come home the Boston butt will be all done. I feel bad for leif because he is off all day and will smell it but not be able to eat it for hours. At least I will have work distracting me all night. Is it sad how happy food makes us. We are such fat kids.  The best thing about it is I won't have to cook for like 3 days because of all of the leftovers.

so yesterday we hung out with leifs sister in law and baby gaven, who is now 3 months old.  the whole time gaven was such a good baby. he even let me change his outfit and didn't fuss so I was really thinking babies soon in my head. I loved how he just slept next to us  and didn't make a sound. well today we hung out with some older kids. I think the ages are like 9 and 5 and it was not fun. it wasn't even fifteen minutes and I was already turned off by children. in that fifteen minutes the nine year old had broken 2 things of ours and thought that she knew how to fix it. well she didn't and I knew she didn't. now my screen protector is a hot mess, well more so then usual. and leifs flashlight no longer works because she wanted to play with it and lost the batteries then sat on them and then when I put them back in it didn't work. and all this time the five year old was kicking her or trying to make me move from my seat. needless to say leif doesn't have to worry about me harassing him to make a baby right now because that was enough to make me eat a whole pack of birth control.

Weight loss

So we have been trying to get back to exercising but have had little luck. We will work out one day and then a week later we will exercise again. I think our lack of effort has to do with being servers and having to walk on our feet all the time. I think we walk too much to feel like doing anything extra.  And what sucks is that our bodies are use to it. Any person that sits behind a desk and then switches to waiting tables drops a ton of weight just because their bodies haven't been use to all the running around. One day we will find a routine that we both like and that works but until then I will take my cake and eat yours too.

Fancy cakes

So my buddy miranda wants to learn how to bake and asked if I would help get her started. We picked a homemade cheesecake to try our hand at. Now I'm not the best baker and only really do cupcakes so this was a really big achievement.  We started out rough trying to make homemade carmel.After failing at making carmel turn brown we started work on the cheesecake.  It turned out perfect.  Sadly we had to spilt in in half and then share with our husbands. But for her first shot at baking she picked something that wowed for sure.

still pondering

I just entered to win a trip to Disney, complements of the company we work for. so keep your fingers crossed. once we get the Disney out of the way I think I will feel better about willing getting knocked up. but I am beginning to think that the only way we are going to get pregnant is to trick ourselves into it. is that possible. maybe we need to throw a big party and try to get the thirst for adventure out of our system. force ourselves to grow up and pop out a kid or two.

So thinking about babies coming so soon I think I'm getting cold feet. First I was thinking lets wait until after we go on a trip to Disney.  Now I'm thinking maybe we could wait until after my sisters wedding in March.  But will I just keep pushing it back every time something fun is coming up. My mom said when she planned to have me she got pregnant right away and I think that is what has me worried.  Like our first try we could have twins or something.  Arent you supposed to work at it for awhile and that's what makes it fun. I just know that if we get pregnant right after we start trying we might not be ready. Does it make we selfish to want to get drunk at my little sisters wedding. I wasn't old enough to drink at my older sisters wedding and me and leif just kind of eloped so not really a big party there. I'm thinking its cold feet. I don't think any human looks forward to getting fat and not being able to drink for nine months but is it natural to keep wanting to push it back.

this rain has got to stop. every night we leave our light on at the front door to keep our resident frogs happy. when we get home we say hi frogs every night. well with all the rain the frogs have gotten out of control.  now that we have a roommate and his girlfriend coming in and out and leif buckeye and myself coming in and out we have had like 10 frogs make it inside. we found 5 in one night, when it was raining really hard. it wouldn't be that bad if we could just open the door and make them hope outside but we cant. buckeye tries to run then the frog jumps the wrong way, then I jump, buckeye veers and the frog goes back in the house.  not to mention the way we find the frogs. buckeye hides in the corner and gets his foamy mouth and then we have to get him to spit it out before he swallows or kills it. man these frogs are ninjas. they leap all different kinds of ways just to stay in the house. silly frogs think its fun to get a mouth bath from buckeye. maybe they think its a gang initiation for frogs, only the strong ones come back.

Oh computers

So I made this little video on my phone for a contest for work. Its less then a minute long but every time I tried to send it in an email it said it was too big. So I facebooked ( yes i just made facebook a verb) myself so I could pull it up on my computer.  That went well so I tried to save it to my computer.  That didn't work so I tried to make the link in the email. That didn't work too well either. Then leif uploaded it from my sd card straight onto the computer. So I'm thinking easy sailing from here. I go to attach it in yahoo email no luck. Its too big. Go to attach it in google email, too big. They both told me to load it through something else on their site and it would work. Wrong again. So I tried youtube. And it loaded. But then stopped at 83%. So now I'm mad because its less then a minute how is it too big for anything.  So I'm on the phone with our wonderful on call nerd (Clint). Love him but he was stumped too. Finally we decided to try it on the laptop.  After about ten minutes its loaded and sent. Dumb computer.  I spent like four hours trying to get it done on the desktop.  I still have no idea what I did wrong but I'm done with computers for the day.

So last night leif said he wanted to go to Disney world. We have less then one month before we try to get pregnant.  I'm not going to Disney knocked up. I would miss all the fun. So we are thinking a quick trip to disney to get it out our system then on to the baby making. Man its hard to plan having a baby

finding time

in our life we have spare time to do whatever we want. it should be spent cleaning the house and doing laundry but that never seems important. now when we have kids does that all change and I get super human cleaning abilities and better time management that has me cleaning like crazy when the kid is napping or will I just try to nap as well. the countdown is getting close and I hope I become a better cleaner.

Great day

You know those days when you feel you and your husband are meant to be because of how weird you are together,  well today was one of those days. I was online buying work shoes from shoes for crews and I went hunting for a coupon.  I found a 5% off and was pretty happy about it. Then the shipping comes up and was three times what I saved with my coupon so I went looking for free shipping. I never found the free shipping but I forgot my discount code so I had to find a new one. As luck would have it I stumbled across a 35% off code and leif started freaking out with joy and I was so proud I found the new code. This is where it gets good. Leif ordered a second pair of shoes for the new discount price and the shipping only went up a dollar. So now we have 3 pairs of shoes coming and we feel so good about saving.  We fist bumped, high fived and even let out a woah or two. Now tell me that's not the oddest story about work shoes you've ever heard.
