Ups and Downs

This has been a week full of ups and downs. We finally got our pool up and going, not ready yet, but closely finished. Luke is getting our new pump today and installing it so we will not be the annoying loud neighbors that sound like they have a huge swarm of locusts in their back yard (our pump is dying right now). We are planning on it being ready by the time his sister comes into town in 2 weeks!

This week was the dreaded glucose testing week. I took the test on Wednesday morning and felt weird all day long. I got the dreaded phone call yesterday saying that I had failed it and needed to do the 3 hour test. Luckily I had this morning off of work so I could get it done before we leave town. My wonderful husband took off work so he could be there with me since he knew I was stressed. I will get the results hopefully on Monday, so PLEASE pray that everything comes out good. The Lord has His plan and I will praise Him no matter what the outcome is.

Finally on an up note, we are leaving this evening for our last big trip before Autumn comes. We are taking a road trip up to Colorado and Wyoming to visit different family members and to go fishing and camping with his brother. Wish me luck on that one! I already told Luke I don't squat in nature, so there better be a bathroom close by! :) I will have plenty of pictures and stories I'm sure when we get back next week!

Ya'll have a wonderful weekend! Until next time...

Wonderful week!

Last week was a big week for me! Sunday, I got to celebrate my first Mother's Day in Yukon with my family! Luke gave me framed pictures to put up in the nursery I have been wanting (pics to come soon) and a massage! Friday was Luke and my 5th Anniversary! I can't believe it's already been 5 years! I am so blessed to have Luke! He is a wonderful husband and daddy-to-be! For our anniversary, we went to PF Chang's and then were trying to get something for each other that we could enjoy and ended up getting a Wii! It was a great investment! It is so much fun and you get a workout at the same time (I need all the help in that area that I can get!) Saturday was my official 4 year anniversary at work as well! So big things going on this past week!

Besides that, nothing new is going on really. Autumn is doing great, I feel a future soccer player in training in my belly! I have to do the wonderful glucose test this next week that I have been dreading! Pray all goes well there.

We are getting ready for our last hu-rah trip the first week of June before Autumn gets here. We are driving up to Colorado to spend a couple days each with different family and then driving to Wyoming to see Luke's brother for a couple days, and then make the long drive back home! I'm making reservations for half way there and half way back to stay the night because I don't think my body will let me stay sitting in a car for over 14 hours!
And then the following week Luke's sister and her family from Seattle will be down to visit for a few days to scout out Oklahoma to see if they could move here!!! We are sooooo.... excited for them to come!!

Well, that is it for now! Hope you all have a wonderful week and I will hopefully post some updated pics soon! Until next time...

Prayer Request

My niece (on Luke's side) had surgery earlier this year. Olivia has CP and because of her tight muscles her bones have grown in a different way than how they should. So Luke's sister Molly had her start a procedure that would cut both legs and rotate the bones and reattach the muscles so that she would have full range of motion and could hopefully walk better and maybe even without crutches. They only do one leg at a time so she has had one leg done. Post operation she has had a lot of issues and most notably she cannot feel her foot. The Children’s hospital in Seattle kept saying that it would take some time for the nerves to heal. Because Molly is a nurse she took Olivia to a specialist for a second opinion and they are saying that she has damage to her peroneal nerve which will cause her to have to walk in a difficult manner and not be able to do motions like stepping on a gas peddle. They are being referred to a neurosurgeon which is scary for the family and they are approaching the end of the nerve healing window. Please pray that God will work and that she will be able to have full nerve health restored to her leg and foot. This is all very scary for Olivia. She is turning 13 this year and this was supposed to make her more free at a time when freedom and mobility are really important. So we are asking for people to please pray for Olivia and our family during this time. Thanks!

Busy but very productive!

What a weekend!  First off, I want everyone to know, that I finally made my plunge into the 21st century.  That's right....I signed up for FACEBOOK.  Crazy I know, but my coworker guilted me into it!  It will take me a while to get use to it, but now you can look for me there as well!  

I got to take Friday off of work which was nice!  We FINALLY got to close on our refinancing for our house.  It ONLY took them 2 months to get done.  Feel the sarcasm!  So that was nice to finally get finished and start saving money!!  After closing I went with Mandy Stansberry to Target to finish up (or really start) registering for Autumn.  There are a lot of things out there which I don't know if I really need or just some new thing someone bored decided to invent!  It makes a first time mom a little nervous when she goes to an aisle that is completely filled with every type of bottle ever made.  How do you choose???  After looking for Autumn stuff we went to the lingerie area to look for me some things I will need when she gets here.  We both were squatting to look at something and both ended up falling and sitting on the floor.  Which to our convenience felt really good to just sit for a while, so now you have 2 pregnant women lounging back in the middle of the floor in the lingerie section!  "Clean up, aisle 13!"  After we got our lazy butts up, we decided to go and try out Orange Tree.  GOOD HONK!  My new favorite dessert place!  Seriously gotta go if you haven't yet.
Friday night was date night with my hubby!  Went to PF Changs and then to see Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.

Saturday, went out with my girlfriends to eat, went back to the Orange Tree!!! and then went maternity shopping!  I love Pickles and Ice Cream and seriously think I ended up trying everything in that store, but my thrifty self (and husband) can't think of spending over $60 for just a shirt or pants, but they do have the cutest stuff there.  After I dropped the girls off, I went back and looked at Old Navy (on Bryant) to see what things they had on clearance.  I couldn't find the maternity clearance and asked and they said it was all mixed in.   SERIOUSLY????  How am I suppose to determine which tops are maternity???  They need to do it like the one on Memorial Rd.  Needless to say, I left that section and went to look for Autumn some clearance clothes and was successful!!  Last night we went out with Luke's old coworker and his gf to see Wolverine.  It was pretty good.  Not big into action movies, but it had good comedy in it which was nice!  The only bad thing is that I think we either ate too much popcorn or something was bad with it, because both Luke and my stomach didn't feel good all last night when we were trying to sleep.  

Well, I'm finished with my rambling, but I did update right???!!!  Hope you all have a great week coming up!  I know I will since I'm taking Tues.-Friday off of work!  Stay tuned for some pics of a project I'm taking on this me...I can't believe I'm doing it either!!  Until next time...
