Mack the Knife

When I first found out I was pregnant Cody would lean over to my belly and yell/scream "BAAAABBBYYY..." ... maybe it was an attempt to say hi? maybe it was an acknowledgment that I had a baby in there? Or maybe he was just trying to terrify the baby?.. I don't know. But since we have found out that it is a boy, and then decided to name him Mack, Cody now sings this Louis Armstrong song 'Mack the Knife' at my belly CONSTANTLY!! (truly like 4 times a day) Me and Codes both love Jazz and so this has come to be Macks 'theme song.' ...After actually listening to the song I have realized that Mack the knife is actually a song about 'Mack' who as it turns out is a rapist/murderer scum of the earth. Should I be concerned that my unborn child is going to become some crazed lunatic because his parents have a sick sense of humor? .. I am due two weeks from today, so if he comes out with a knife in his hand, wearing a bandanna and has shifty eyes.. I will take full blame

In love with a tree

How freaking amazing is this tree!?! I have been in love with this tree for years. I pass it every day on my way home from work and every day I wish I had time to stop and climb it! Yesterday was the day. I have had it planned out for some time now. Seeing as how I am ginormously huge and struggle to even put on my pants these days I did the second best thing to climbing the tree.. I sent Cody to do it. He might have been a little hesitant at first, but by the end I had to drag him home. ( i wanted to leave prematurely because i was jealous... ) anyway the tree is right behind Desert Schools on Brown and Stapely I think. I really don't think there is a better tree in existence. Please. go. find this tree, and go climb it!!! - (but I would do it

either after hours, or on a Sunday - I'm not sure how the business would feel about tree climbers)

At the beginning of my pregnancy I craved milk. Whole milk. Coming from a strictly 'skim, and only on cereal' milk drinker, this was strange. Cody would wake up at 3 in the morning only to find his wife in bed next to him drinking a large glass of whole milk!! .. (does it surprise anyone that i have gained like 500 pounds this pregnancy?) Anyway the months have gone on and I really haven't had any other cravings (the milk fad is over as well.) UNTIL.... the doughnut craving!! This craving consumes all my thoughts! - probably because I can't satisfy it (I have celiac disease.. can't eat flour) so what do I do? Deny myself the most heavenly sprinkled treat, or do I suffer through the stomach pain and just gorge myself with fluffy doughnuts until I have had my fill... ? Either way I would like to take this moment to apologize to my husband who literally hears "I want a doughnut" at least 10 times a day.

Its Time..

Alright, so I know I am a horrible blogger. You don't need to tell me! (even though a lot of you have/do constantly.) I would like to blame this on two things. #1 - I tried to commandeer my husbands blog. I turned his once political, philosophical, manly blog into a colored template, talk about my life, girly blog. I feel completely guilty because he now refuses to write on my girly blog.. I am a blog stealer!! - the #2 reason my last blog didn't work is because I am basically an idiot! - I could never post anything in my own name, always Cody's, which not only left me confused and mad, but i think it left all of you a little confused too... SO with all of that behind us I am starting this new blog fresh.. that's right, the leaf has been turned my friends. Wish me luck..
