what is a hamburger reeeeaalllly all about?

Fact: I could probably eat In-n-Out every day and never get sick of it.

Fact: I wouldn't even care if I died of cardiac arrest...it'd be worth it.

Fact: This is not just a pregnancy craving... I assure you.

Fiction: In-n-Out uses top secret recipes that pitiful civilians like ourselves do not have access to.

Yes folks, it's true! Now you too can enjoy the delicious taste of an Double Double animal style In-n-Out burger in the comfort of your own home...no long drive thru lines in sight!

Exhibit A: THE RECIPE!:


Ok, so I admit...the recipe looks a bit daunting, and I highly doubt it can really rival the original, but I do want to attempt it one of these days, just for the hell of it.

....or I could just sit in the drive-thru after all...cause let's not kid ourselves, everyone wants some fries with that shake...and that Double Double.

29 Weeks Later

So since I still don't have a working camera, I've been kind of reluctant to post any new blog updates for fear that my entries would be boring without some kind of picture to go along with them. Fortunately, I ordered replacement parts for my camera and they should be arriving sometime this week!

In other news, last week I started my third trimester. I can't even believe it!! Only about 2 1/2 months left to go...I have to admit I'm starting to get nervous. The whole giving birth thing is kind of freaking me out, buuut the anticipation of meeting Levi is also really exciting. He's such a mysterious creature right now and I can't wait to just see him and hold him and know that everything is going to be all right and that it was all worth it. I think that not knowing what to expect and the fear of the unknown is the scariest part.

He is around 17 inches long already but only weighs a few pounds, so
he still has some chunking up to do before he makes his grand debut. Isn't that weird though, that he's almost as long as a full grown baby already? Here is a picture of what he looks like

Also, the hormones are really starting to kick in...I cry about everything that has to do with babies now. Ok, maybe not everything, but certainly pictures of newborns...and my 4 month old niece smiling... and those birth stories on TLC...I even get weepy when Levi gets the hiccups in my tummy or I think about looking at him for the first time. Poor Clay has to deal with my emotional outbursts...but he's really sweet and goes along with it. :)

And next week I will have another belly photo, even if it means borrowing someone else's camera!

need a little laugh?

I found the link to this website from another blog and it never fails to make me laugh. It's just pictures from home furnishings catalogs and funny little captions to go with them by the fictional yuppie couple Elaine and Gary. I can't really explain it well, so you'll just have to check it out the next time you're bored or in a bad mood. :)

i'm back!!

I'm back to the world of blogging! This last month has been a busy one, so I apologizing for not updating at all. Every time I get a free minute, I find myself just wanting to veg out. This, however, has led to too many nights of mindlessly watching horrible reality t.v. shows, so I'd be better off blogging anyway.

So, I'll try to recap the last few weeks without boring you too much!

As I said in my last post (over a month ago - geeze!), I graduated college! My mom, dad, sister, aunt, uncle, and Clay all came to support me at the ceremony. Thanks guys! It was cool to sit there in my cap and gown and know that I have finally accomplished one of my life's major goals. I can look back and know that I worked hard and didn't give up, even though there were times when I thought I couldn't stand sitting in a classroom for one more semester. And ok, I did take a semester off one year when I moved to San Luis Obispo for a few months, so maybe that helped me get through it too.

Here are some pics:

My little sis also graduated highschool, so my mom threw us a joint graduation party at out house. It was fun and my mom went to a lot of work, so thanks mommy! She always goes all out when it comes to parties and this one was no exception. Think streamers, balloons, posters, flowers, food...LOTS of them.

The night ended with a rousing game of Clue...which I ruined because I wasn't keeping track of my clues properly. Claire and Katie would have been the winners. Sorry guys.

On June 4th, I turned the exciting age of 24! It sounds so....old and yet I feel so....immature. Of course, I'll have a lot of growing up to do in the foreseeable future, so I'm not too concerned. My birthday this year wasn't anything much to write about; after I got off of work Clay and I went on a little hike and then got ice cream cones, and then we went home and made steak, baked potatoes, and salad for dinner. The next night, I had a little birthday dinner at Buca di Beppo. It was pretty good, except for less than satisfactory service. I guess they were busy with all the prom parties that were there. It was still nice to see my friends :)

A couple weeks after my birthday, my dad, sister Sammi, Clay, and I went on our annual camping trip to Yosemite for TEN DAYS! People think I'm crazy for camping for that long, being pregnant and all, but it was fine. I usually like to do a hike or two, but I had to take it easy this year. It was relaxing and nice to get away for awhile, and the weather was perfect. Unfortunately, I discovered that my camera is BROKEN!! The battery refuses to charge...not sure if it's the battery or the charger that is having technical difficulties, but I'm going to take it to get looked at a.s.a.p. So...no pictures of Yosemite this year :'(

I promise to be better about blogging and will do some pregnancy updates soon!
