Friday Confessions {8}

Hiiiii everyone.

Happy Friday to us! :)

I’m doing pretty well–I’m tired though. The other morning I woke up starving, and after eating something, could not fall back asleep. So annoyed!

On the bright side, Jared was a sweetie & got my rings cleaned yesterday. Another to-do list item checked off. On a roll, yessssss!

And here we are….Friday Confessions time!

Friday Confessions {8}

1. I am so ready for the weekend. 

This isn’t really news to anyone, I am sure, since we’re all probably in the same boat, but I can’t wait for the weekend!

My little sister came into town, and is here (yay!) & will spend the weekend with us. And some of Jared’s family came into town so we’ll have a very fun, family centered weekend.

We’ll also be watching this all weekend–join us for some awesome, uplifting messages Saturday or Sunday 10 & 2 pm MST!

Come listen to living prophets

2. I had a doc’s appt yesterday….

…and I haven’t progressed really at all since the last appt.

Whomp whomp.

I was totally bummed. But then my husband made some really great points (like we’re not really ready yet & all that jazz), and made me feel better. Plus, we have a busy weekend, so it’s a good thing we’re more sure that we’ll be making it to it all.

And of course, we got to hear her heartbeat, so that was fabulous! <3

3. So I got part of a free sandwich.

The other day we went to the store to grab some things, and I was really hungry. (As always).

So we picked up a big sandwich from the deli section & I started to eat it as we walked the aisles.

(Really pregnant lady holding & eating a huge sandwich in a store…I was an awesome sight).

Anyways, we got to the checkout awhile later (and probably 6 or 7 bites of the sandwich were gone), and when she was ringing it up, the sandwich fell out of the wrapper. The checker felt SO bad about it & was like “I’ll get you another one!” I said it wasn’t a big deal & to just take it off the receipt.

So yah, I got part of a free lunch. Woot!

4. I have decided that pictures are not my favorite at about this time in the pregnancy.

Call it vain or what you will, but I am not loving pictures of myself lately.

Ahhh well. Such is life.

This is a picture of me & Jared from the other night when we were out.

Our photographer (some random guy) was not interested at all in taking our picture…and was kind of rude about it. Hence the blurriness. Making me look even better.

#winning 😉

5. Cheese will almost always be a part of any snack I eat.

‘Nuff said.

I’m a cheese lover for life.

6. Jared packed his part of the hospital bag.

Awesome, right?

Now we’re really ready! Hah.


Have a GREAT weekend! :)

  2. I have so much to say about this post…

    1) I’m sure you’ve heard this, but your progression (or lack of) really isn’t a great indication of anything. There’s women that progress instantly with no signs beforehand. So don’t get too bummed! 😉
    2) I laughed when you were talking about walking through the store with a big ol’ sandwich in your hand. I love it.
    3) I totally feel ya about the photos late in pregnancy. For the record though, I think you look AMAZING!
    4) I LOL’ed at the picture of Jared’s “hospital bag” – TOTALLY Cody too! Are you surprised?
    5) Yay for Friday! (P.S. Can you believe this snow?! Grrr.) Enjoy the weekend with your fam!

    • I really appreciated this comment 😉

      I totally agree with the progression thing–but it’s a hard thing to swallow. Here’s to hoping something changes soon!

      I can see Cody doing the EXACT same thing with the bag. HAH.

      p.s. maybe I’ll/we’ll see you this weekend at the race?!? only time will tell….

  3. Hahaha Jared’s overnight bag made me crack up! 😉 Men, right?! By the way, I think you look gorgeous and glowing in the pictures! So there’s that!

  5. Check out that hospital bag! Throw some snacks in there, and you guys are ready to GO ;)! That guy who didn’t want to take your picture was a jerky jerkface. He was probably jealous because you guys are such a cute couple.

  6. Cheese for life! And i think you look great in your photo.

  7. Literally laughed out loud at Jared’s bag. That’s too funny! I am sure you will have the rest all stuffed 😉 I am sorry you haven’t progressed :( But at least you have family to come keep your mind off of it! Enjoy your weekend!

  13. Apparently, Jared only needs a tooth brush, minus the toothpaste and deodorant. That is hilarious!

  14. I feel you on the pictures right now. Just do your best to believe us all when we say you look great!
    I love to snack on cheese and fruit – I find it really satisfying.

    I think you look absolutely beautiful in that picture!

  16. Annette,

    I remember my last couple weeks feeling like eternity. Bless you as you await your new arrival.

  17. I couldn’t help but giggle at that last point :)

    You look beautiful, girl. Truly!

  18. Hahah Jared is definitely ready to go! I think the differences in packing between men and women are so funny at times. It takes me a solid day to get everything together, while my main man throws together his things in 3 minutes ;).

    I personally think you look GORGEOUS!

  19. Hi Annette! I’m new to your blog – I found you on twitter I think – and you are just adorable! You look so cute in your workout clothes pregnant….only a belly! I never had a pregnant instructor at a gym class but you go girl!!! I can’t wait to look around your blog! Congrats on the soon-to-be new addition and, take it from a mother of 2, try to rest now!! It’s the BEST, most exhausting time of your life….and every second is amazing!! :)

  20. Ha!! I love Jared’s contribution to the hospital bag!! If only we could pack so easily. . .

  21. Haha! Score on the free sandwich! I just recently ended up getting a whole loaf of bread for free when there was a bit of confusion at the register with the sale price ringing up wrong! I’m convinced the bread tasted even better! 😉

  1. […] p.s. Jared wanted to know why I wanted pictures of us with me at 39 weeks when I keep saying I feel huge. HAH. <—p.s. thanks for all your kind comments about my thoughts on that! Jared does have […]
