Week 4


How far along? Looks like 4 weeks....

Total weight gain/loss: couple pounds gained.  I'm not sure how y'all lose weight in the beginning.  Maybe I still will, but right now I'm starving all the time.  I don't eat all the time but I'm sure starving all the time.

How big is baby? Baby is the size of Poppyseeds. At 4 weeks your baby, now known as a blastocyst, is practically microscopic - a teeny ball of cells. Baby is busy settling into new home, prepping for all the crucial development it'll be doing over the next six weeks.

Maternity Clothes? I swear I need pants!

Stretch Marks? None other than originals

Best moment this week?um..........

Movement? too early

Food Cravings/Aversions? I have woke up dreaming about Ramen Noodles, Eggs, Bacon, Pizza,

What I miss: My clothes fitting and not feeling like I look fat.  Right now I'm at the stage I'm not showing, I just look fat.  I also haven't slept well at all this week, I'm ready to sleep good again.

What I'm looking forward to: Not feeling like I haven't slept in ages! Oh wait, I hear that never goes away...

Nausea/Vomiting? Haven't felt bad this week.  I hear it hits around week 6... we'll see.

Labor signs? Oh good gravy I sure hope not!

Gender? Your guess is as good as mine!

Belly Button in or out? I have an inny thanks for asking :)

Wedding rings on or off? On

Sleep? I pretty well have woken up every morning this week feeling a though I haven't slept in weeks.

Weekly Wisdom: Poor hubby.  I sure hope these mood swings go away.  Please bear with it just a bit longer... I hope.  I'm sick of them too!

Due Date: Thursday June, 26, 2014 based off internet results....

Happy Halloween!

I guess I've never really gotten into the Halloween spirit... I lived in the country so really my parents used to drive me to my grandparents.  Then for a while my mom worked at a bank on the square in town and all the businesses would have the kids come trick-or-treat there, otherwise, that was the extent of my trick-or-treating.

I now live in the country so it isn't like we get a lot of visitors but I always keep some candy on hand just in case someone decides to come see me :).

I saw on facebook yesterday that a lot of the schools around the area were doing their "Harvest party" yesterday... like one gal said, why?  And why not call it what it is people.  Let's get over being politically correct.  It's Halloween, celebrate it on Halloween.  There... that is solved :).

Last night as I was driving home from school I decided I really wanted Pepperoni Pizza for dinner so I ran by Walmart to pick one up (not enough time to make one from scratch sadly).  On my way home I started noticing that all the trees around me were gorgeous.  Since when did that happen?  I'm not complaining bug I guess we really haven't had fall the last few years so it was just pure amazement to see the beautiful colors surrounding me.

This is on the back road coming up to my house.  This is just a gorgeous setting anyway with the trees "covering" the road like they do.  But gorgeous colors!

This is at the head of my driveway.

And this is looking out into my pasture.

It was just sooooo gorgeous and then add the rainy day on top of that.  Oh I was in heaven.  I snapped a few video's.  In the first video, the thump is one of the dogs walking into something in front of my car on their way to greet me.  In the second video, you hear a neighbor kid holler which they had to holler loud as you can see if you look where the neighbors house really is.





I hope y'all have a safe and happy Halloween!

The Stuff I Cooked Last Night

Blame the title on hubby... Anyway, Last night as I was driving home from school, I thought about this pasta I had one time.  It is based off a Rachael Ray recipe and I thought, you know it's raining, cloudy, cool, fall, this sounds good so I stopped by the store, grabbed ingredients and away I went.

Needed: Pasta, 28oz Can Italian Crushed Tomatoes, 1 Cup Ricotta Cheese, half a small onion, 1 Cup {store bought} Pesto, Italian Cheese (I used 2 cups), Parmesan cheese (I used about a cup).  Plus I had some hamburger that needed to be used up so I decided to throw that in. 

Brown up the hamburger, sweat out the onions and cook up the garlic. 

Start the pasta to cooking.  Once it is cooked, add it to the ricotta and some Parmesan cheese.  Mix together with the Pesto. 

Once your beef mixture has cooked up, add the crushed tomatoes.  I could only find original so I added in my own Italian seasoning and a handful or so of dried basil seasoning.  Mix it all together and then dump on the pasta and mix again.

Top the pasta mixture with cheese.  I wound up using 2 cups because come on, it's cheese.  Then place under the broiler for about 5 minutes or so until it melts and becomes YUMMY!

And Hello, dinner is ready!

Oh Lourie, this is what I tried to offer you as left overs ;)

10 Things To Smile About October

Good Tuesday Morning to you.  How are you feeling this morning?  I'm exhausted.  I didn't sleep well last night.  Add to the fact that it's cloudy and rainy outside this morning and oy, I'm done!  But I have to get up and start my day and I thought it would be fun to start the day off by joining Emmy in her 10 Things to Smile About for the month :).  BTW, where in the world has this month gone?  Seriously!


1.  We spent a lot of time riding Snookums and getting her broke to ride earlier this month.  Wow, that seems like forever and ago.

2.  We were able to get my dad more hay for his cows for the winter.  I mean I guess I have a few cows/calves at their house too, but still, we got more hay to feed the cows this winter.  Score!

3.  No sugar added fudge pops have been our treat of choice here lately!

4.  While I was doing homework the other day I ran across the trailer for The Neighbors.  OMG, the part with the airbag cracked me up laughing which was really bad since I was sitting in the library!  Beware, this is a bit gross but if you watch, wait for the airbag!  It starts around 1:13 if you want to fastforward to that point.


5.  We got our Pumpkins carved for Halloween.  Sadly they molded and had to be thrown out, but we got them carved while Tbug could join us.

6.  We were able to go to Kansas City and see the Broadway Musical Wicked.  Btw, when you're looking up tickets for someone make sure you type the website in correctly.... www.wickedthemusical.com.  YIKES if you don't!

7.  Hubby and I got to go and see a Kansas City Chiefs Game!  As of this last weekend they're now 8-0!  Woohoooo!

8.  I'm actually having fun writing my blog posts for Extreme Sports Scuba blog!

9.  My husband is GREAT.  Things have been crazy around our house lately and one day last week he brought me home flowers just cause.

10.  My cat snores.  When she's not scratching the crap out of my hand, she's really cute snoring!

Ok girls and boys.  That's all she wrote.  I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!  I guess I'll get up and head to school now!  loves and hugs!

The Cat Made My Hand Hurt

Saturday night I heard weird noises outside so I let the dogs come sleep in the house.  Sunday morning when I woke up I got up to go let the pups out and the cat was wandering around the living room.  I don't really know how the cat will react to the dogs or the dogs will react to the cat so I went to pick the cat up and carry her into the bedroom to hang out with hubby while I put the pups out and the cat didn't like me picking her up.  Now she's front declawed, but she still has those mean ol' back claws and look at what she did to my poor hand.  To say it hurts would be a bit of an understatement.

Let's just say the cat went down the hallway and I had a few explicit choice words.  I'm not even sure what I said but I know it did include OUCH!

So I chased the cat the rest of the way down the hall by stomping my feet at her and then put the dogs out.  Audrey thought that she maybe smelled something she should check out but I told her to go to the door and luckily she listened.  Again I'm not sure how the dogs and the cat will react around each other....

I wasn't real happy with the cat so she steered clear of me most of the day.  Later in the evening JT and hubby were in the house playing with hubby's Infrared thermometer, you know picking on the poor cat.  Don't worry, I took video :)






Awe, the poor cat.  We were having fun picking on her. 

Then I had to go lock myself in my office so I could work on re-writing a paper for school.  After a while hubby came in to check on me when it was time for a shower and bed.  When I got out of the shower, I went into the office to grab my stuff and look who I found sleeping on my chair.  Hubby said she was apologizing for my hand earlier this morning.

It's soooooo hard to stay mad at her but I'll admit, my hand still really hurts.

Stress & the Loving Husband

Ah, I swear, I forgot how stressful being a college student can be some days.  Yesterday I went to class.  After class was over I decided to go home and study vs going to the library, partially because I was hungry and didn't have any food with me.  So I drove home and pulled out all my homework.
  • British Literature: Finish book 2 of Paradise Lost, Some research & a media project.
  • Intro to Writing about Literature: I have 2 papers due in the next 2 weeks.  One is on A Doll House and the other is on Othello.  One paper will be a Classical critique and the other will be a feminist.  I get to choose which play gets which critique.  Plus I still want to do a rewrite on my first paper.
  • History of the English Language: I have a powerpoint presentation due in a couple weeks, a paper due at the end of the semester and a test next Friday.
Thinking about all of that just stressed me out so I thought I'd take a short power nap.  Yeah well... that didn't work.  I was so tired I couldn't keep my eyes open but at the same time I couldn't get my nap in because all I could think of was all the work I needed to be working on.  Let's just say it was an unproductive afternoon.

But I'd like to brag on my loving husband just a bit.  Earlier this week he knew that I was getting majorly stressed out so he stopped by the store and bought me these to perk me up.

I would like to report that I did finish my Paradise Lost stuff for today's class though.  Woohoooo.  Up next... is it nap time yet?  Happy Friday.

Week 3


How far along? Looks like 3 weeks....

Total weight gain/loss: couple pounds gained.  I'm not sure how y'all lose weight in the beginning.  Maybe I still will, but right now I'm starving all the time.  I don't eat all the time but I'm sure starving all the time.

How big is baby? The size of a Poppy Seed.


Maternity Clothes? Nope

Stretch Marks? None other than originals

Best moment this week? Telling Tbug, my parents and the grandparents to be.

Movement? Way toooo early

Food Cravings/Aversions? I soooo want a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich.  Mainly the egg part but the rest makes it even better!  I woke up one morning this week dreaming about Ramon Noodles.

What I miss: Um....

What I'm looking forward to: Not feeling like I haven't slept in ages! Oh wait, I hear that never goes away...

Nausea/Vomiting?

Labor signs? Oh good gravy I sure hope not!

Gender? Your guess is as good as mine!

Belly Button in or out? I have an inny thanks for asking :)

Wedding rings on or off? On

Sleep? I pretty well have woken up every morning this week feeling a though I haven't slept in weeks.

Weekly Wisdom: Truthfully I don't think this belongs here but this is where I'm choosing to put it :). The hardest part for me this week was telling Tbug and my parents. I felt guilty all the way around. I can't totally explain the guilty feeling, but it was there. I felt bad. With Tbug, part of it is conversations we've had in past. With my parents, well, I can't really explain that one either. I'm totally mixed emotions here. I wish I could explain and even my mixed emotions make me feel like a horrible person.
