By the way...

Alison brought to my attention that I missed a blog here... so for those of you who don't know yet- I'm pregnant!!!!!!! We are so excited! We thought about keeping it on the DL for the first few months, but lets face it- we are way to excited and can't keep our mouths shut. We both graduate in April and are moving to Washington then where- after a few months our beautiful baby would be born (don't mean to sound cocky- but lets face it- boy or girl.... its gonna be one GOOD LOOKIN baby!). We are thinking the due date will be early July- but I guess we will see once we get in to a doctor. So far I am feeling great other than a few minor mood swings- ok- RETCHED mood swings. I'm working on not being a crazy woman on a rampage though- Charles is being patient... he's great! So there is the main thing from our life lately- many of you probably knew, but for the few who didn't- there we go. We have gone public!

Thanks for a Great 22nd

Today has been a great day to end a great week! Charles started my birthday celebrations a little early this week by kidnapping me and taking me up to the Anniversary Inn in Salt Lake for the night on Wednesday. We stayed in the Phantom of the Opera room... classic! We had a lot of fun and it was great to get away for a night. Saturday he took me out to eat at Outback, were... the steak was delicious, but the real treat, I must admit- was the BlueBell Icecream for dessert. For those of you who have never experienced the greatness that is Blue Bell... bless your soul. Charles's comment while I got excited was "following in your mom's footsteps, eating Blue Bell while pregnant." I wouldn't have it any other way!! Look out Texas- We have a whole week there! I hope all the stores are stocked! After dinner we went to a Comedy Show at Wiseguys. It was a lot of fun. We tripled with Adam and Tessa, and Andria and Randy. We had a good time with all of them.
This morning I got woken up to "Happy Birthday" and breakfast in bed! Charles got up and made me crepes- yum!! Then he finally let me open my birthday presents. What a fun birthday! Thanks to Mom and Dad for the cute heart earrings! I love them and since they are the only earrings that I own now that won't irritate my ears- they will get lots of wear! Great choice! Thanks to Mom and Dad Himmer for the cute socks, awesome aprons, and baby name book! I'm sure we are going to need to go through that in the coming months. My wonderful husband topped it off with a "gift card" for a date night of shopping for me and baby- and 2 pressure cookers! I have been really wanting some because I hear they are great- now I just have to figure out how to use them.
Thanks to everyone who called, texted, emailed, or even blogged (Thanks Emily!!) to tell me happy birthday! It is always great to have friends and family who love you!! Thanks again to everyone who made this birthday so great!! I LOVE YOU ALL!!

mmm... Blue Bell homemade icecream, what a perfect way to sayyyy...
Have yourself a bluebell country day.... :)

For those of you who know me well... you know a baby name will not
be an easy choice- this will DEFINITELY come in handy! and... sorry about the weird face

The birthday ensemble: earrings, apron, book, pressure cooker, apron, and socks!

Cute earrings from Mom and Dad... again- why do I make weird faces??

Our Last Game... :(

So this week we attended our last ever BYU football game as students. What a sad day, we decided the football games would be one of the things we were definitely going to miss about college. There is just something about having a sold out crowd all wearing blue cheering their guts out over some big boys takin' each other out. It has been a lot of fun to watch them, especially as they get better and better. Anyway- in honor of the event, I took a few pictures to post our memory.
