REI Garage Sale

Here is Will with 2 of our Westside leaders (guy and girl in crazy creeks at the bottom) and 10 of his new best friends in Houston. This bunch camped out overnight for the REI garage sale that happens every couple of months. REI saves all their returned items to sell for 50-90% off of retail. Our goal...

This here stroller. 

Will got there at 8:30 Friday night. Rumor on the street was that there were 4 Bob Strollers in the sale. There was a guy, Roland, who was 2 in front of Will who was also looking for a stroller. Game on. Come to find out though his wife wasn't even he said he would let Will have the first pick. Nice guy. 

Come 9:30 AM the next morning we were the proud of owners of the above stroller. We got some "ohhhs and ahhhs" as we came out of the sale. I so badly want to sit in it myself for some reason. When I buy something I like to use/wear it immediately. For how much it's worth, I should be able to sit in it. We also got a sleeping bag, and 2 pairs of chacos to sell online. We (most likely just Will til Mister is old enough to camp) will never not camp out for a sale in Houston. 

Unrelated funny story: Saturday tied for record heat in Houston, 109 degrees. That same day Will found out that he had seat warmers in his car and they've been on high for the past month that he has been driving it. Everytime he came in from driving, his shirt would be soaked with sweat... I really was starting to wonder about his sweat glands. Now it makes sense.

Here I am day shy of 19 weeks.

 Now these ultrasound pictures I could never master. Will says this is Mister's ween but I don't really know what to think this is a picture of. Oh and Mister is our new nickname for the babe til we name him.

On this one you're looking down at Mister... presh.

Today Will and I went to the Rice University Farmer's Market. I got a scone, bunches of kale, swiss chard, and cucumbers. We're going on a juice kick to get our full dose of fruit and veggies. So afterwards we went to Bed, Bath, and BEYOND to buy a juicer. I'm also going to try and make kale chips. I hear they're good, but I'll let you know.

I hate making title's for each post.

After Will and I found out we were having a boy we went to Babies R Us to see what's on the market for baby boys. Well, we found a stroller and a pack & play that tripled as a changing station and hamper with some storage for toys. Due to our one bedroom apartment we'll need something like that to save room. Clothes wise, wahhh wahhh. Everything is cheesy and has something like "I love Mommy" forcing him to love me. The next day we went into Marshall's and we found a onesie with robots on it, giving me hope that there's more out there. Found these on Etsy just making me more excited!

This one, especially if we name him Cash (which is in our top 5 thus far)

The doctor's appointment went great. During the ultrasound, she was talking as if it was going to be hard to tell the sex. In my head I was like ahhh if we don't find out today I'm gonna cry! She was showing us all different parts of the body. We could see him moving his head and arms(which I started feeling 2 days prior and now I feel him moving quite often! so weird!).  All along she would type on the screen the parts ie RFoot for right foot. And as she was done, she typed boy but didn't say it yet. I thought , is boy short for something??? or is this her telling us it's a boy??? I was so confused, then she put !!! on the end and said "It's a Boy". I raised the roof and cried. We are thrilled. We really want to have a girl one day but I really wanted to have a boy first. 

My mom has been in town for a week swooning Will and I to dinner and/or lunch about everyday. And in between buying me maternity clothes that couldn't have come in a more perfect time. I got to the point where I was only wearing dresses or leggings. Maternity Leggings=Most comfortable things ever. Ummm yeah, I'll probably shop there even when I'm not pregnant.

I promise baby bump and ultrasound pictures next post!

We've Got The Internets

After 11 days in our new apartment and feeling settled the "new" keeps coming...

I now have cravings... milk and popsicles. Not together.

The Astros might as well be a minor league team.

I live at Hogwarts. We are trying to read them all to be able to see HP7pt2 in 3D.

Met my local CVS employee, Joseph, who I'll be working with for years to come.

Will and I are no longer attached at the hip. He got a car yesterday. It's an Escalade. If you know us, this is real funny.

Today we finished our 2 week camp follow-up with Westside folks. We won't know what to do with our mornings to ourselves now.

I'm finally getting a belly bump. Thought for a few weeks it was some sick joke.

AND we should be finding out boy or girl a week from tomorrow!!
