Valentines 2013

For valentines this year I decided to make Rillz and me a nice dinner. I wanted it to be something he wouldn't expect.
I made lobster tails, mashed potatoes with blue cheese, and prosciutto wrapped asparagus. I also bought him a Heineken. When he came home from work he was very surprised! He knew I was making dinner but to see it that nice, he was shocked. For dessert I made a cheesecake with Guava glaze. That turned out alright. Not my best.
We got to eat our dinner together and then it was off to bed early as usual. We don't do valentines gifts for each other so this was nice and romantic for the night.
I am thankful for my husband everyday and all the hard work he does for our family. Happy Valentines everyone!


I am now 28 weeks pregnant. In the start of my 3rd trimester. Sure came fast! Today Rillz and I met with a family doctor to see if we wanted him for her doctor (and ours too). We felt like we grew up 10 years this morning just by having to do that and think about it. My pregnancy has been really easy. She looks good, I feel good... can't ask for more!
I no longer crave spaghettios (thank goodness). I have been eating a lot of Edamame just because they are yummy, healthy, and a quick snack. But no cravings anymore as of right now.
Starting in March I am going to do a prenatal water aerobics class 2 times a week. Sounds fun and will get me moving more.
We don't have a for sure name for her yet. Our top contenders are Aurie, Anuhea, or Ellenore. But it could end up being something totally different. If she was a he we already had a name... Kai'noa but that will have to wait. We are excited to meet her!
I am not working right now. The family I was nannying for moved to Ireland for about 5 months. I am hoping they return after the baby is born and I can continue to be with the girls! So these last two weeks I have been trying to keep myself busy. Yesterday I spent 1 1/2 hours poop scooping the yard. Yes, we had that much poop in the back thanks to three dogs and three months of snowy cold weather. We also bought a changing table that I am scraping the paint off to stain the top to hopefully match our crib. I am not a patient person though when it comes to crafts so this is a challenge for me. I made a dinner menu for the rest of the month. I love it! Takes all the thinking out of having to worry about dinner. I am also addicted to watching a show on Netflix called Locked Up Abroad. Except last night I kept having bad images of some of the episodes and it was me who was locked in jail in a foreign country.
Anyways, enough rambling for now. Peace out...

Rillz Birthday

Rillz had his birthday February 9th. Now 34 years old. He spent that morning going to the shooting range with Ren, Brent, and Mark. Of course had a blast! (Haha pun intended) and came home wanting a new sort of gun that so and so has. Then Ren and Rillz went to a motorcycle shop just because they wanted to drool over what bike they want. That night we had the family over to celebrate Rillz's birthday and my mom came up with the yummy menu. Thai chicken lettuce wraps and wontons. So good! I definitely had my share of dinner.
Rillz received awesome gifts he was way excited about. And, of course, family was fun to be around. We are always loud, honest, and laughing! Happy 34th Birthday Rillz.

(Rillz, P.S. your present from me is still baking and will be ready around May for you) :)
