Happenings

  We just got back from St George/Hurricane this afternoon.  Every once in a while I get a hankering for my home town and Jack usually obliges by driving down with me.  My main reason for this visit was my hair.  It needed some attention badly.  It might seem crazy that I would drive 3.5 hours to get my hair done, but that is because Tenille is crazy good.  I had her do dark brown all over and then she painted blonde on top and on the ends underneath, hombre-style.  I absolutely love it and needed it soooo bad.  Since I can't go tanning, whiten my teeth, I have gained 200 inches around my waist, and have been visited by the acne fairy, I was sure going to have fabulous hair by darn....plus my roots were like 3 inches long.  I probably drive her crazy with how long I go between colors.
   Anyways, it felt so good to be down south.  It just feels and smells so homey to me.  60 degree weather (ahh), dinner with friends, cupcakes at 25 Main, snuggling in a hotel room, seeing my dad, and bringing a lemon cream cheese pie home from Croshaw's (it has been calling to me from the fridge all night).  I really like Northern Utah because this is where my honey and I have made our home, but I've got to say that Southern Utah will always be completely wonderful to me.
   In other news, they are tearing down my high school!  I don't know who "they" are, but I'm pretty upset about it.  They are tearing out the football field to make room for a new building!  MY football field!  The one where I cheered and danced, and watched games!  They are tearing down the hallway where my locker was and where I would stand and talk to my friends!  And the gym where I had a million volleyball, basketball, and cheer practices :(  I'm so indescribably sad about it.  Stupid progress.
  As an update, Jack and I are doing well.  We spend our days working together on our advertising company (he with all sales and sponsors, I with office duties, correspondences, and logs).  It is so great that he has a job that keeps him home all day and is so fun and profitable for us.  I still work a couple days a week in the hospitals doing newborn sessions and love it.
  We had our 20 week ultrasound last week and found out  we are having a baby girl.  It was one of the best days of my life.  It has been so crazy and slow, not knowing the gender of our baby!  She is very healthy, and it was amazing to see her little arms, legs, tummy, profile, beating heart, and brain.  Every time I think about it, I smile.  It's a GIRL!  I already bought her some cute little outfits, and discovered that I have no idea about sizes.  There are size smalls that say they will fit her until 10 pounds; she will reach that in what- like 3 days?!  (unless she is born at 10 pounds like some of our siblings, knock on wood)  anyways...I got her some bigger stuff in case she is....big.  The ultrasound tech said "wow, she has got some really long legs!......like reaaallllyyy long."  Well, I guess she is definitely my girl :)
