Well folks, the husband and I just have 6 more weeks until the baby comes. (hopefully, she isn't stubborn and comes late.) With 6 more weeks, we really are on the count down. And we still have SO much to do. In fact, every weekend from here on out to my due-date is booked solid. It freaks me out just a bit, seeing as we are all the sudden so busy and yet have a 'to do' list that just seems to keep growing.

But with 6 more weeks don't you worry, Sam and I have a fun countdown we started last week (back when I had 7 weeks left) to watch a Harry Potter Movie a week until the blessed day. And that will refresh Sam's memory (because who are we kidding, my memory of HP needs no reminding) just in time for the second half of the 7th movie. It comes out just one week before Abbie is supposed to come. But I have a secret plan. Abbie is going to be a HP nerd just like her mommy so come the 15th of July when I'm watching Harry Potter, Abbie will just be so beyond thrilled, she'll come a week early. I have proof of this too for one day I was watching the Harry Potter trailer, and she started kicking me very hard as if to tell me "Mama, someday I'll go to Hogwarts just like you." Oh that already nerdy child of mine. How I love you.

In other news, with 6 more weeks, Sam and I only have that amount of time to just be us. Basically 5 more weekends (since this one has passed.) and this past weekend we made the best of it. Except for on Friday, when I was so puffy and hot, that I was a tad  on the grumpy side. But we did eat at Moochies that day. And of course, I got my sandwich (a ham and swiss) but oinkily lusted after Sams (philly cheese steak) which may or may not have made me grumpier. Oh and never mind that we were invited over to Brigham and Kari's for S'mores and we got home late and I couldn't find my pants so instead I pouted on my bed. Don't worry. I have paid dearly for being such a grumpy guss by dreaming about S'mores and now I will crave them 24/7 until I get them. But after Friday, the weekend got fantastic. Saturday we went to a funeral of Sam's great aunt Elsie. I didn't know her at all, but she seemed like a wonderful woman and I can't wait to meet her in the next life. Afterwards, we went with the Tappana Clan to my favorite place, The Olive Garden. And besided two drinks being spilled (one of those drinks into my raviollie de portablello) it was an tons of fun!! And not to mention, I oinked my weight in breadsticks and salad. And drank lots of coke. Abbie was having a party in my tummy after that. After lunch, I needed to get me some new sun glasses (since I accidentally sat on mine a week or so before, breaking them of course) and found me the perfect pair for $9! Score!! Then we went home with every intention to clean, but instead we found ourselves knocked out in a food coma unitl we went to the Bees game that night.

The game was a lot of fun, until they had like 50 extra innings...or just maybe 3. But I just wanted to see the fireworks after. Which they didn't let us go onto the field for but it was still so much fun. I love summer and I love fireworks and I love baseball food. And I love sitting on a blanket, even though at times it got very uncomfortable, with my husband. We are both very excited to have a baby, don't get me wrong, but I'm going to miss having care-free time with just the two of us. I'm thankful we had as long as we have had though. It's been wonderful!
Note new $9 sun glasses


Nothing like a stadium at night.
 And last but not least, Sam and I both got callings in our new ward. He is the second counslor in the Young Mens presidency, and I am the second counslor in the Primary presidency. We are both pretty excited, and it will be nice getting to know more people in the ward. Wish us luck!


  1. Holy crap that was a busy weekend for you guys! And lucky got invited for s'mores...we did not. I guess we really are the outcasts of the Tappana family :) Oh well. I realize that we are the coolest...and that probably makes you all envy us and not want to be around us because it hurts your feelings knowing how awesome Tim and I are. Hahaha, totally kidding. Mostly :).

    Six weeks is going to FLY! Spend as much time together as the two of you as you possibly can. Once Abbie is here, it's gonna be all about her. It's an incredible growing experience as husband and wife...but it's also very challenging.

    I'm super excited to become an Auntie again! I can't wait :)

  2. Ugh, we invited both of you for s'mores and were denied. We love EVERYBODY!

    It looks like the Bees game was fun! I love fireworks. I love your new sunglasses too!

    With Lydia, I didn't really notice a difference in our alone time. I didn't feel hampered at all. Maybe because she was so easy going, we could still mostly just do what we wanted like usual. However, with two kids, I REALLY notice it! Everything takes so much more work.

    But kids add so much to your marriage too. So excited. Hopefully it won't be too much of a time difference from when she's born to when I'll get to meet her.

  3. oh my gosh you look so cute in those pics!!! and of COURSE abbie is going to come out july 15th- she'd be crazy NOT to want to go to hogwarts. assuming shes not a squid- knock on wood
