I have been tagged!

Alright so I think I did this right. I was supposed to go into my pictures and pick the 4th picture out of the 4th folder and post and write about it. This happened to be our "when we were dating" folder. This was a date we did one day. We finger painted a scene that we had seen together. I will explain it.
We went for walks all the time behind good ol Raintree apartments. What you must know is that it is scary in the dark cause our friends, some bums, live under the bridge and stroll the trail as well. We were walking and this bum on a bike rides one way and a girl walking starting to go under the bridge to her apt. Branberry. WEll bum on a bike saw her and turned around and started peddaling fast at her. (People get chased all the time on this trail, its scary) Anyway, so she starts booking it, and he did too and the chase was on. Meanwhile, justin and I just started walking really fast to make sure she was ok. WHen we got to the other side, there was no sign of either of them... but I hope she is fine. After that adventure, we went back and I had always wanted to sleep on this perfect "cougar branch" of this tree above the trail. So justin gave me a little boost to try it out. Apparently I have no balance on trees, and so I fell off. So in the bottom left corner of the picture is me falling, and justin catching me with his huge muscles. He drew them accurately. There we go, and I even still have this poster in my things I save. Good times!!!

Mom, Baby Showers, and Conference!!!

33 Weeks Now... in my sister's baby's room..just so you know I'm not making our girl be a boy, but i do need to post picture of our nursery.

This past weekend was really really fun! My mom flew in from Seattle on Thursday night to be down for baby showers. She hung out with us all weekend long, and I loved it. I miss having her close. We went shopping, had talks and just played. We threw my little sister, Michelle, a baby shower on Friday night. She is having a little boy and is due the day after me, November 25th. Saturday was conference so Justin and I woke up and watched it together. I seriously LOVE conference. I always LOVE Saturday sessions too. Anyway, a lot of questions and things were answered from our great prophet and his amazing apostles. How can anyone not want to be a part of this church seriously. It is so true it kills me, but not really, cause I'm alive, but I just love it so much. I'm so lucky to be a part of it. Anyway, after the second session of conference, I had a baby shower that was thrown by my beautiful friends. I really am lucky that way too, just to have the greatest friends ever. It was an open house kind of deal and worked out perfectly, people could come and go and I got to talk to everyone and catch up on life. One of my best friends, Mikale, flew all the way out from D.C. to come! I love her and was completely suprised... just wish she could have stayed longer :( Then we just all hung out and talked for a while. Good times with all these girls! Thanks CHELS!!!!

Sunday, we went over to my in-laws house and had a really yum breakfast and watched conference there. It was a fun day as well, just relaxing and gooooooooooooood! Justin and I went home and had some good talks with my mom. This morning she had to fly home and I was sad to see her go, but I will see her next month when this little girly is born!

I didn't have my camera this weekend, so these are pictures I stole from Laura's facebook....

I'm now almost 34 weeks along. Here we go, here we go, here we go, here we gooooooooooooo!!!

Me and Laura............................................................ everyone that was left at the end!!!

I will post more pics as soon as I get some more!
