A Puppy Adventure

This will be a short post, specifically for your entertainment! Look at this picture of our latest puppy adventure: 


Yep. That is a bra. My bra. Do you see that little smile on his face?? It was in our room on the floor. He picked it up with his mouth, looked directly at me, and ran out the doggy door! Now just picture in your mind an 8 month pregnant lady running (okay waddling) after the little stinker all over the backyard! Good thing he is so cute! It's hard to stay mad when you just look at that face :) Lesson learned: clean up your room. He definitely keeps me on my toes. Love him!

It's Been a While..... A LONG While

Wow. It has been FOREVER since I have been on here. Life got crazy and a lot of changes have happened! First, we FINALLY got a puppy! His name is Charlie and we absolutely adore him! We got him when he was 6 weeks old (which, by the way, is too early for a puppy to leave its mom..... lesson learned). He is a toy poodle and weighs about 10 lbs. Here is our cutie:



This pig is now completely chewed up....


He is now 1 years old today! Yes, I have a billion pictures, but I will only post 3 more for now:



I just die every time I look at that last one! He only "smiles" when he is really hyper....



Okay, next thing that happened: We got pregnant! 



The way I told Kip is pictured down below:


We are pretty excited! We are having a little boy and he is already a little soccer player just like his daddy! My ribs definitely feel it! I'm basically a hot air balloon right now, or a beached whale, or an elephant pregnant with another elephant, or all three above. In other words I am HUGE. It doesn't help that I am so stinkin' short! We are about 2 1/2 weeks away from this kid getting here, but I am hoping beyond hope that he comes early. I'm dying. I'm not a huge fan of pregnant photos, but I did take just a few: 

20 Weeks:


26 Weeks:


And 31 Weeks:


And I have only gotten bigger. No more pictures. I'll have to blog more about the pregnancy later. Ps- Kip hasn't gain any sympathy weight. What the heck!?
Those are two of the biggest updates...... I have a ton more to blog about. But here you go!

Mini Oreos

Earlier I posted a recipe for homemade oreos, and they are delicious! I made them again for a family gathering and I wanted to make more than just twelve cookies. So..... I made MINI homemade oreos! Pretty much bite sized :) 



This time I used food coloring to make the frosting light green. Previously I had used a little bit of red food coloring to make it kind of Christmas themed. This is just an idea post if you have to feed more people, make the balls smaller. You can find the original recipe here: Homemade Oreos Recipe

Family Famous Fruit Salad

This fruit salad is SO yummy and super easy to make. My mother-in-law made it one day and I have been hooked ever since. It is now a famous recipe in my entire family and is usually something we bring to almost every family gathering. So now I want to share the recipe with you, it will be a big hit in your family as well :)


Family Famous Fruit Salad
1 large size container of cool-whip
1 family size container of vanilla yogurt
1 large box of cheesecake flavored instant pudding mix
Different varieties of fruit

Stir together the cool-whip, yogurt, and instant pudding mix together. Now.....just add your fruit! Typically in our salads we put apples, bananas, grapes, blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries. Enjoy :) (Thanks to my amazing mom-in-law! Love you!)

Hives From a Monkey

So Kip and I just got back from a cruise and it was SO much fun! On one of our adventures, we stopped in Roatan, Honduras. That day it was raining so hard, but it was still really fun. One of our stops was to a little zoo. Right when we got there, a sweet little girl walked up and she was holding a baby monkey. It was so adorable!


When you see a baby monkey, naturally you want to hold it. So..... I hopped in line and was the first to hold it! Everyone got a chance to hold that adorable little fellow who wanted to.


The monkey was yawning in the picture.....not screaming!


My sister really likes this picture and wanted me to post it


The monkey wanted to get away from Kip ;)


And this is my younger, but bigger brother.


Then there was another monkey who liked to climb on our heads!



This part really was super awesome, but........ at the end of the day, my neck and chest started itching REALLY bad. And all of the sudden I had all of these little red bumps. Yep. I had hives. It turns out that my sister got them too all over her neck. Thank you Benadryl! Yes, I got hives from the little guy, but it was totally worth it. I have been telling Kip that I really want a baby monkey now! And a puppy. :)
