Fresh Pickins'

This past week Andy and I had the same day off so we took advantage of the beautiful summer and growing season here in WA and went to pick blueberries! It was so fun, I have never done anything like this before! Growing up in AZ I think I picked corn a few times with my mom, but berries are so much better, especially since you can pop a few in your mouth to taste test while you pick ; ) The owner of the farm said next in season is apricots and apples...can't wait! Fresh produce tastes amazing!

Andy and I went to a Blitzen Trapper concert at a really cool venue last night. It was an old church building and was a smaller show, the band was amazing live! My favorite part about it was that there were church pews for me to sit my pregnant self down on and enjoy the music. Check out Blitzen Trapper and Ages and Ages if your are looking for some good new music!

On the baby front, our little man is growing like crazy! I had a little freak out moment last week when I was exposed to a virus at work that can cause fetal death even as late as the third trimester. Thankfully after some prayer I know everything will be ok. Can't wait to meet this baby boy and bring him home! His nursery is currently a work in progress, but so much fun!

As my OB said at my last visit (the day this was taken) "you're face looks fuller" In other words..."your face looks fat"! THANKS!

it's me again!

Well I have completely neglected this little family blog of ours! I really do feel like I have a good excuse, more like a list of's what we've been up to since Andy CONGRADUATED!

1. bought our first home
2. moved from California to Washington
3. watched the moving company pack our house in Cali...t'was glorious!
4. cried when everything arrived in Washington and we had to do the unpacking
5. started a new job
6. boating trips to the Columbia river
7. spent 4th of July in Oregon with Andy's grandma
8. got the sweetest, cutest puppy and named him Milo
9. gave Milo back 5 days later and he was renamed Jasper ;( Milo was so much better
10. started to make progress on decorating the house
11. way too many trips to Target and Wal-Mart to count
12. oh and did I mention growing a baby! I am so excited to meet the little man who has been boxing inside my belly!

Git... in... meh... belleh!
Yes I know that I am getting huge, please don't remind me. Today at work one of the female Docs casually mentioned that I'm getting bigger by the day. I smiled said thank you and quickly waddled away! I swear that every time I look in the mirror, miraculously my belly seems to grow! I no longer recognize my hands and feet. In fact, on the way to the river Saturday, Andy informed me that my hands looked HUGE and I could karate chop a loaf of bread with one hand! So sweet of him ; ) Then later that day we had been watching 48 hours Mystery about a husband who murdered his wife and I was super creeped out. He then comforted me by telling me that he didn't think either of us were capable of murder, however if one of us did kill the other it would be me who murdered him! He said I'm the hot blooded one! Come on me, hot blooded no way! What can I say, I'm a Jolley, our blood is naturally hot!
