On Tuesday my mom and sisters went to see Wicked at the Kennedy Center in D.C. It was so much fun. Ever since high school I have wanted to see this play! I knew all the music. I even made my roommates in college listen to it, and then they got to see the play before me! FINALLY I was able to see it. And it was and is AMAZING! I want to go see it again. Now that I know the story the music totally makes more sense. The story is so entertaining and interesting. I loved it, and so will you. If you ever have the chance to see it, it is definitely worth it. Here are some pictures of the night!
Laura and Jenney waiting to see the show!
We love Wicked!
Before the show started this was the stage.
Waiting anxiously

I have been singing the songs all week and can't get them out of my head! I ran home and told Jordan everything about the play. Haha so if he ever sees it I probably ruined it for him but oh well. I was way to excited not to tell him everything! And besides...he asked!

Baby Shower

Last Saturday my mom, mother-in-law and dear friend Kathleen threw me a baby shower! It was so much fun! I wanted to share the experience in some pictures! This picture above is me at 36 weeks and Carole Ann at 22 weeks.

This is the dessert table. Isn't the diaper cake so cool!

The Packham Girls

The Premont Girls

Me and my awesome co-worker Lena. She was the one who threw me the surprise shower at work!

One of my Best Friends Kathleen. She is such a great friend to help me mom out! She also threw my bridal shower. She is good at this stuff!!!

Baby Update: I had my 36 week appointment today. The baby is still head down. The doctor checked my cervix and said I am not dilated at all! :( that's okay I still have 4 weeks until my due date. She said she could feel the baby's head though. Crazy! His heart beat was 155. So really strong! I am measuring normal and she is estimating he is about 5 1/2-6 pounds right now. She said she is guessing he will be average size! Yay

Move Update: We moved into our new town home last Friday. We didn't actually move anything down there. We painted the baby's room, and our room. It was fun to do that project together but Oh man! I did not think it would take so long! I am so happy it is all done. We have everything in our apartment pretty much all packed up. We are moving everything out on Saturday. So I guess the official move will be Saturday. I am excited to get settled into our new home! I will post pictures of the new place asap!!!

Surprise Baby Shower

Last Thursday my co-worker Lena planned an amazing surprise baby shower for me at work! It was so sweet of her. She asked me on Wednesday if she could get a ride home from work because her parents needed her car. And to thank me she wanted to treat me to frozen yogurt from the cafe upstairs at work. When we walked upstairs there were SO many people sitting in the cafe, and I just happened to know all of them from the fitness center. I honestly just thought they were all eating lunch together....but then a huge SURPRISE came out! I was so taken back I almost started to cry! My face turned bright red and I of course started to get really nervous and sweat! haha that has been a big pregnancy symptom for me is getting reallllly warm and sweating when I talk to people. Anyway that's for a different time. It was so sweet of everyone to come and surprise me like that. I love all the members here at the Westat Fitness Center! They are so good to me, and Jordan and I (and baby) got a lot of great gifts. We are so appreciative of the generosity of other people and thank them so much for helping us! That baby shower totally made my day! I was too excited after work that I couldn't take my usual 3 hour nap. I stayed up and read all the cards again, and looked through all the gifts! It was so fun to tell Jordan and show him all the great stuff we had gotten. My co-worker has lots of pictures I am just waiting for them so hopefully I can post those soon. (I look so gross in all of them because I had been up since 5am and decided I really didn't need make-up or fix my hair that day. and since it was right after I got off of work I am still in my work clothes so I'm wearing a really frumpy outfit.) haha kinda funny actually

This weekend my mom, mother-in-law and good friend Kathleen are throwing me another baby shower. I am so excited and can't wait to see everyone. It's going to be lots of fun. A little less than 5 week and our little boy will be here! I can't wait.

We are moving into our new townhome this weekend. I am so excited because our apartment is so messy from packing. Boxes everywhere!! We won't be moving completely out until the 23rd but at least we can take some stuff down this weekend and clear some room to create more messes. We are also painting the babies room on Friday and finally getting his room set up! It will be a fun project for Jordan and I.

I will make sure to take lots of pictures this weekend to show everyone!

Maternity Photos

We took some maternity photos a few weeks ago. It was fun...really hot outside but we had a good time. Here are some shots that I liked. Enjoy!

Baby Update: I had my 34 week check up yesterday. Everything is great. His heart beat is still strong and I am measuring normal. There was some question at my 32 week apt that he might be breech so they took a quick ultra sound and his head is down so we are ready to go! The doctor told me I should keep teaching my classes/exercising as long as I can. As long as I am not having preterm contractions or bleeding she thinks I should keep it up. She said my labor will be that much easier...thats what I am going for!

4th of July: We had a great 4th. We went down to D.C. with my family. Usually it is a nightmare getting in and out of DC but it really wasn't that bad. We only like 10 miles outside of the city but still we found parking just fine. Only a few blocks from the Capital which was where we watched the show and fireworks. There were lots of stars preforming for the Capital show. Matthew Morrison (Mr. Shoe from GLEE) Jordan Sparks, Mark Ballas and Cheslsea Hightower (Dancing with the stars) Steve Martin...and more I just can't remember all of them. It was fun and the fireworks were beautiful. Half way during the firework show Jordan looked at me and asked me if I had his wallet. I told him no and we started to panic. We knew he had it when we were watching the show because he took it out to give his sister some money. We were searching our area like crazy. My mom, dad, sister, his mom, and sisters were all looking everywhere. I mean it's dark, and there are people everywhere. Then his sister Danie says are you sure it's not in your pocket. And I felt his side pocket on his cargo shorts and there it was....JORDAN! We were all relieved but couldn't believe it was just in his pocket! So Check you pockets next time hubby.
