And Then There Were None

I'm officially all moved out of my apartment. I cleaned the crap out of it last night so today I'll be giving my keys to the new person moving in.

It's sad to think that I'll never be going back there. So many things have happened to me while I was living there: a promotion at work, two break ups (and make ups) with Boyfriend, I got a new car, I got pregnant. I feel like I kind of "grew up" there. I'm happy for what's to come in my life but it was bittersweet leaving last night.

Diaper Fiasco


A few weeks ago, Boyfriend and I went to Babies R Us to finish our baby registry. We were told to take two seats at the counter and the guy on the phone would be with us shortly. As we waited, Boyfriend looked at all the diapers surrounding the counter and said, "We should register for diapers too."

Me: I read Costco's generally cheaper, they equal out to only 13 cents a diaper.
B: Do we really need that many though?
Me: Babe, how many diapers do you think babies need a day?
B: Two?
Me: Babe, we're having two babies
B: So..four?

By this point I'm crying and can barely contain myself.

Me: We have to change them each time they go
B: So six then.
Still Laughing so hard tears are running down my cheeks: No, more like 25 a day.

At this time, the guy from Babies R Us hangs up the phone and gives me a weird look asking how he can help us. B told him what we needed while I tried to pull myself together. I know he'll be a great dad but I've told everyone humanly possible this story and still almost cry laughing each time I do.

Take 2

My Favorite Melifaif couldn't see the video I posted Friday so here it is again:
Surprise for Mama from lindsaylocke on Vimeo.

This is the first time I've used Vimeo so hopefully this one works!

I wanted the babies genders to be a surprise for the family. I figured they'd enjoy hearing, "It's a boy, and a girl!" or "It's two boys!" or "Two girls!" I have to admit, I even thought about not finding out myself for just a minute. I felt like we had waited five months already so another four months wouldn't be that difficult.

But I'm a planner and I knew I''d be happier knowing. Once we found out, we went to JC Penny's to look at bedding and my heart melted while looking at clothes.  I wanted to be able to register for cute clothes so I did a complete 180 and decided to tell. We still haven't been able to get B's family together and my dad's been out of town but my mom's reaction was pretty priceless.

Does anyone know how to get the actual blogger video thing to work? I tried three times and it would load but not play!

Teddy & The Fair

Saturday Teddy got a haircut. The poor little guy looks soooo much better!
Then Boyfriend and I met up with our friends Lacey and Jovan who are also expecting (a little girl.) We decided to go to the Puyallup Fair. 

B being a dork.

Lacey kept making fun of the people who get all dolled up funny and wear crowns and stuff to the fair so we sneakily tried to get her one of the crowns, she caught onto us too quickly. 
Waddling around the Fair.

Something kind of interesting happened at The Fair. We were in one of the expo buildings when we passed by one of those jewelery booths where you can pick an oyster and get a pearl. Even though Boyfriend has been to Hawaii he had never seen one of the booths so he encouraged me to get one.

I picked the oyster I wanted but there was one stuck on top of it. I finally pulled out just the one I wanted when the lady running the booth opened it up. She felt the meat with her thumb and said, "Oh, there's two." B and I looked at each other, are you kidding me?! He told her we're having twins. Apparently two is our lucky number or something. 

I ended up with two pearls, one is 6.4mm and the other is 6.7mm. They're not exactly the same size but close enough that I want him to make pearl earrings out of them for Christmas.

A happy Homecoming by Lindsay and AK

This is the first day I've been able to get Blogger to work all week! My weekend was pretty fun. My friends Lindsay and AK recently moved back from San Diego and I finally got to see them! AK and I have been friends since I was 19 so he's pretty weirded out that I'm having kids!

We ate at our friends restaurant, Citrus, it's pretty good. It was kind of weird though watching all the club promoters and club rats come in as the night got later and later because I used to be one of the promoters! Rather than saying "Hi" to the people I knew and making useless small talk, I avoided them. :)

Is it Really Wednesday Already?!

This weekend was filled with baby stuff. Friday we found out the sexes (sorry, not telling.)  Saturday we it bad I can't even remember what we did?! And then Sunday we worked on the registry. I decided to go with because I can find things from all different stores and add them to my registry. I'm trying to find the cheapest price possible for everything so a lot of stuff is from Amazon.Then B and I went to go see Takers with T.I. and Paul Walker (mmmmm...Paul Walker.)

Monday B met my girl friend Annette who was visiting with her family from Ohio. She's one of my closest friends and I love her to pieces. I'm just happy they don't live in Japan anymore! We went to The Rock where everyone else had a drink or two and I had a yummy smoothie! Today we're adding more to the registry at Babies R Us and then I have to pack. Oh yeah, did I mention already that we found someone to take over my lease so I'm moving in with B in two weeks? Yikes!

SO frustrating!

Boyfriend and I were so excited for my 20 week ultrasound on Tuesday so we could find out the sexes of the babies. I left work early and rushed to B's only to be told they can;t do the ultrasound when we arrived. Say what?! I was npot drinking all this water and holding it for no reason!

Apparently, the person scheduling didn't schedule enough time for twins and they wouldn't do just one and do the other a different day so  I have to go back Friday so they can do it! I can;'t keep missing work and I'm already going to have to work long days since we didn't work Monday (I'm only part time so I don't get paid holidays,) so now my days are going to be even longer so I can leave early again on Friday.

I was so excited to find out the sexes. Grrrrrrr. >:(

On a different note, I FINALLY felt Baby A move Monday night. Of course, it felt like they were fighting at 2am while I should have been sleeping. I've been feeling Baby B for weeks now so I was relieved to finally feel Baby A.

Labor Day Weekend

A friend's 32nd birthday was Saturday so we decided to head over to our other friends "other house" in Matawa for the long weekend. Never heard of Matawa? I hadn't either until B and I started dating. There ended up being 10 of us and the weather was awesome, compared to last time we were there and it was cloudy.
The birthday girl passed out early....before 2pm early. 
 Sherman knows what's good! (Don't worry, I don't drink anymore)
B decided to shave his head like a balding man. And then his friends convinced him to wear it that way all day. They said, "It's funny!" Yeah! As long as it's not your Boyfriend/Husband!! I didn't mind too much since we didn't know anybody in the tiny town, but he DID have to shave it yesterday before we came home.
We convinced E that we needed to shave his chest hair. We shaved an "R" for his wife's name. But I heard he shaved the rest of it off yesterday.
We went golfing but I didn't get to participate. I don't think I'm supposed to do the extreme side to side thing. :(
R has the daintiest swing but she actually hits it really straight. 

We watched this movie, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, three times. It's funny if you don't mind vulgarities like "snatch napkin" but I'm just happy they group didn't want to watch it a fourth time.

And I finally got some sun! I won't scare you with the swimsuit pics. I hadn't put my bikini on since we were there in May so I didn't bother buying a new one, I stuffed myself into the one I had. Since I wasn't super active I didn't fall out of the top and even enjoyed some time floating in the pool

Baby Shower Blogs

Does anyone know where to get some cute baby shower ideas? There has to be a few good Baby Blogs with some ideas posted, right? My sister wants some input from me but I really don't have any specific details I'd like. I haven't been planning my baby shower since I was four. I haven't been planning my wedding since I was four either. (Gasp!)I have no idea what I want for either of these big occasions. Side note: I'm not needing to plan a wedding. B and I are not even talking about marriage!(Sorry mom!)

I googled Baby Shower for an image to use for this post and look what I found!

No Thank you! PLEASE send me any baby shower ideas/blogs you might know of!

So I need your help. On Tuesday we find out the babies sexes (as long as they cooperate!) I REALLY want the sexes to be a surprise for everyone else, but I'm getting some pressure from people to reveal them. And I know for practical reasons it would be easiest to let people know. People keep saying, "What will we know what to buy then?!"

If people buy us stuff from our registry, it won't be a problem, but I've heard from people recently married that nobody sticks to registries anyway. Obviously, any help we can get from people will help out, but I hate that we might have to reveal the genders because of practicality.

So what do you think? Should we keep it a secret and hope we get stuff we can use or should we reveal the genders?
