bed rest... hum...

Have you ever noticed that you always want what you can't have?

For example, everyone is always wishing that they were finished with school and complain that graduation is never going to come. I was guilty of whining about this trap for all three years before I graduated. On the flip side... I really miss trudging across frozen Weber State to listen to my poetry teacher lecture on how the 80's were the best becasue men could pull off wearing hooker boots. . . Still not sure what he was getting at, but the point is I miss being a student.

Girls are also natorious for this type of behavior.
Stick thin size 0 girls always complain about their flat chests and look at J-Lo's butt in envy.
Whereas nicely curvy girls always wish they could see the knobs of their hips.

Someone tells you to be quiet and suddenly you want to burst out with loud irritating noises.

Try it right now, tell yourself that you can't scratch an itch for the next five minutes. Garaunteed your lip starts to tickle or you notice that your hair is irritating your neck.

Why is it that we always want what we can't have?

The doctor told me I had to stop working and lay down more.
Every tired persons dream come true right?
Now all I want to do is go on walks, scrub the house, and plan parties.
She also said I had to stop eating salt.... ..... ..... .....
Ya, now I feel like a deer standing at a salt lick all the time.
Chips, cheese, soup... all loaded with salt. All ridiculously delicious!

Someone figure out this whole contentment thing quick and let me in on the secret!
P.S. Also any good suggestions of low salt foods are welcome. I feel like I'm starving to death... which let me assure you isn't the case, my maternity clothes are starting to get tight:)

I have decided, once again, that I am totally and completely in love with this guy!

I could write a long sappy post about how he does a million and one sweet things for me, and how proud I am of him for all of his hard work, but at the end of the day it's the corky little things that make me fall in love with him over and over again. So here is my list of weird reasons I love you.

1. Your weird fasination with margarita glasses, saki cups, and giant beer mugs. I swear you don't even mind that we're drinking O.J. and milk, it's all about holding a "cool" cup.

2. All of your cheap cons to get me to rub your neck or tickle your back.

3. Your obsession with dinosaurs, sharks, and dragons. You and our little boy are going to have so much fun because you'll finally have an excuse to bring toy reptiles to church:)

4. The countless times I've heard you sing Whitney Houston songs.

5. The face that you pull when you think that food is too hot, which is almost always, but it makes me laugh every time.

6. Your pink Hawaiian shirt, yellow old man boating shorts, and tight "european" spandex shorts that you think are swim trunks. Some how you pull it all off, but if someone was to look at your closet they would be a bit confused.

7. When you prepare for an extra strenuous day by putting deoderant on your chest as well as your armpits. Because as you say, "you never know, things just might get crazy."

8. The fact that you took three pages of notes in our first birthing class. Also that you asked lots of questions and then turned to me and said, "that was a good question huh?" And when I smiled back you said, "well everyone was wondering."

9. That you have named all of your ties, eukaleles, and favorite pillows saucy girl names. You know I can't compete with Genora.

10. Ever noticed that you are always the loudest spectator? I love it, but when you yell out "Desmond have my baby," people wonder who in the world is the girl standing next to you :)

Like I said before, there are millions of real and sincere reasons why I am so content with spending my forever with you, but these are the ones that have made me smile especially big lately.
