We found out that our once little boy is actually a little girl!!!! And I am sooo excited! It has been so much fun buying and looking at all the cute girl stuff! I can't wait to meet our sweet little girl!

And I must be getting big, I've had a couple of people tell me they thought I was due any day now!!! Who says that to a pregnant girl, really! So I can only guess that in 3 more months I am going to be huge!!!

Puppy Love!

Okay so anyone who knows me knows that puppys/dogs are the love of my life! I have always been crazy about them! When I was little I would always say I was going to have 100 dogs when I grew up.... too bad that doesn't seem so logically anymore, but still wish I could! So.... On Saturday, I came home and Brandon was there with this sweet little guy. Ever since I cannot get enough of him. He is a Springer Spaniel and is 7 weeks old. He is kind of a little terror but I love him so much he probably gets away with more than he should. I need to be better and start making him have rules! It has been so hard for me to leave him and go to work everyday. I just wish I could be home with him.

I don't have my cord to post pics but as soon as I do I will get some up here to show him off! He is white with liver (brown). He has the cutest little nose with freckles. I can't decide for sure on a name (being the indecisive person I am), but I really am thinking Knuckles Charlie Christensen!! He is such a sweetheart and anyone who wants to come visit let me know!

Big thanks to Brandon for the new addition to our family! So far he fits right in with us and besides being a little terror, he is actually a really good pup. He is doing so good with the potty training only having 2 accidents so far! And sleeping has been going really good also! I am so lucky to have him! Thanks so much Brandon! I love you!

Pictures to come! sorry!

In June I was able to go on a girls trip!!!! My friend Alex and I went to San Diego! It was so much fun and I want to move there now... I think I am destined to live by a beach, ride a bike everywhere I go and have 5 or 6 dogs to walk daily, oh and not to mention run on the beach every morning!

We stayed in La Jolla which is a very very nice area. Unfortunately no one informed us of "June Gloom". Apparently June is the worst month of the year to visit San Diego.... Every day is cloudy and not very warm, if we would have waited one more weekend we would have had perfect California weather. Needless to say on our to the airport to fly home we were looking for a tanning salon to tan with our swimsuits on so we could pretend the weather was sunny!!!

Here's a few pics!

Surfer dude!
We're real classy.... what can I say!
Our sweet rental for the week!!!
This is what home looks like to me!
Caught red handed... we can be trouble together!

My favorite thing in the world.... my dogs!

This is sweet Chewy with bows!
All time favorite pic of Jake. Going to blow it up and frame it.
he makes me so happy!
Chewy is such a sweetie, I love him so much!
This is Danner. He doesn't look very happy in this picture cuz he was getting his nails clipped! LOL he is such a sweet dog.

Rachelle and Colby Thackeray!

My sister and her boyfriend of 6 years got married! They have been engaged for 2 years now and so I have been patiently waiting. She has had about 15 different ideas of where and when they were going to tie the knot so I am glad it is now official. And I am so happy for them, they make such a wonderful couple and I love them both so much. Colby's sister and I decided to set them up and I am so glad we did, they go together great.

The wedding was on Tuesday October 12th in Boulder, Co. It was so neat to be able to travel with both families and have a get away with the two of them. My sister looked beautiful and the whole trip was so much fun. I love them both and am happy to have them in our family!

I turned off my flash so I wouldn't mess up the photographers work but now my pics are hard to see!

Our crazy fun life!

I know it has been FOREVER! We don't have internet at home so I never have time to do this blog anymore, so now that I have a min, I'll try and catch everyone up on our very fast changing lives lately... Tons of pictures so hopefully I can get them all on here tonight.

Everyone should know by now but if not I am pregnant!!! We found out baby is a little boy! We are both very excited! I knew from the beginning it was a boy but I still bawled all day when we found out for sure, I had my heart set on a girl. Now that I have thought about it, a boy doesn't sound so bad after all. I grew up with only sisters and have never really been around little boys too much so they seem kinda foreign to me Lol. I just felt more comfortable with a girl for my first one. BUT... I am very excited for how much fun having a little guy around will be. As long as he is healthy thats all we ask.

We also bought our first home! Brandon and I have been moved in since the first of the month and we love it!!! We have a HUGE backyard, which now I can't wait for a dog. Hopefully before the baby gets here if I can talk the hubbs into it.

Well not really, but we went anyway!!! It was really cold at night but the next day was a perfect day for FiShiNg!!! Bran and I signed up to help out at the Ogden Marathon... well we signed up for the starting line.... which meant.... we had to be there at 4 a.m.! So anybody who knows me knows that that right there is a nightmare waiting to happen!! So I made a deal with the hubbs that I would go if we could camp by the starting line and shave off about a hour of awake time.. So with the intent of being good citizens and helping all the people who are out of their minds to pay to run 26 miles, we dusted off all our camping gear and heading up the mountain Friday night... Well I'm embarrassed to say, WE STILL OVERSLEPT!!! I'm sorry all the motivated runners if being 2 lazy volunteers short messed up your start line!! I hope it wasn't too big of a deal and they had plenty of help up there!

But we still had a lot of fun camping and fishing in the next day! Enjoy the pics!!

RaCe FoR ThE cUrE!!!

Me and a couple of friends went and ran the 5k for the Susan Komen race for the cure. I used to go every year but I missed the past couple years, so it was fun to be back. Its crazy to see how many people come and support this great event. Its also really sad to see how many people are running in memory of a loved one. It was also fun to see some of the people who get all decked out in pink!!

Me and Alex after the race!
Megan and I running to the end.
ha ha, these were some kids who got all excited for us to take their pictures!We had to take their picture a couple of times because therewas always 1 kid who would say "wait I wasn't in it, take another!"
This was the beginning of the race!
This guy was really getting into it!
and the girl doesn't look happy I'm taking her picture!He was dancing all crazy to the band!
This doesn't even do justice to how many people were there!

Ha! what a dork I am!!

I didn't take any pictures, but I also went to the live green festival after the 5k. It was pretty fun and since I get into the whole natural and "green" stuff, they had some pretty neat boothes. I also tried a vegan brawt with some vegan mayo and a vegan beer!! I didn't know they had so much vegan stuff. The festival was outside at the Salt lake library, where they also had the Anne Frank exhibit, which was pretty neat also!

Brandon's Birthday!!

I wish I had more pictures. We went out to dinner at a really yummy and fun place called Cucina Toscana and I forgot to take any pictures, but here are pictures of Brandon opening his gift. I got him some new boots he's been wanting and a massage from my spa. Hope you had a good birthday Bran!
