I can do anything better than You!

I have found something out about myself that I will blame on my pregnancy that I'm not really proud of, but I'll learn to handle it better.

I get irritated with dumb people really easily.

Not really dumb people, but dumb things they say.
I say "dumb" and not "stupid" because I really believe that they don't know any better, and I think that's more irritating then anything.

I hate when someone has something happy to say, or simply a comment- and some one else has to top it.
For example- if I said "I ate 5 hamburgers, I'm full" this type of person would respond "I had 10 hamburgers." Quite frankly- I don't care if you had 10 hamburgers! You probably don't care that I had 5- but it doesn't matter because we're talking about me- not you- and 5 is a big deal for me!

I just don't like it when people knock down other peoples accomplishments to someone make them seem less important. I actually had someone tell me that me graduating with 1 child wasn't that big of a deal because they did it with 4.
It bugs me.
Kyle and I call them I-walked-on-the-moon-people. (If you've seen Brian Regean it makes it even better). I can't wait for the day that I'm really irritated and someone tries to top me so I can give them a good, loud, probably kinda rude but nonetheless
"Oh ya?! Well I walked on the moon!"

The College Graduate

I graduated from Northern Arizona University with my
Bachelors Degree in Applied Science: Early Childhood

Guess what that means?! No more homework!! No more assignments !! No more tests!! No more textbooks!! No more stress!!

It definitely wasn't easy. I couldn't have done this without the help of Kyle watching Macy while I went to night classes and all the support he gave me in helping me with homework when I was stressed BUT most of all, I couldn't have done it without my parents. Between Biology and a new baby there were a few times when I really thought I was going to stop. I would tell Kyle "I'm done, I'm so done- I can't pass biology!!" and he would say "Yeah right, are you going to tell your Dad?" then I was say "Ugh- no, I'm just gonna stop and not tell him" then Kyle would laugh and say "Sure- you're not gonna stop going because you'd be too scared to tell your Dad." I always knew I was expected to go to college and to be honest I don't think I would have if there wasn't that expectation. I think it's a very good thing that my parents held high expectations because it helped me accomplish something that I didn't realize was that important. Even though I don't plan on working, there is such a good feeling knowing that if Kyle was unable to work, I have a degree to fall back on. Thanks Mom and Dad for all your hard work, energy, stress, and funds to get me through school! :) I really really really appreciate it.

What will I do?! Oh ya- CRAFT!

Graduation is Friday, and I have one final left. To be honest, I've kind of been putting off the final because it's weird to be that I'll be done after I take it. Bitter-sweet I suppose. What will I do after I graduate?! Well, besides add a new baby to the family. I love to make things and I've been searching Etsy for things to make that will keep me busy :) So far I am making a quilt that will match our front room so I can put it on the back of our brand spankin' new recliner that will be here on Saturday! Yay for a rocking/recliner, the one we currently have is.. well.. it's time for a new one :).

I found this SUPER cute diaper bag for a baby doll which will be PERFECT for a "I'm a big sister" present for Macy when the baby comes... and her Grandma C has already offered to make it :) It's a diaper bag, changing pad, burp cloths, diapers, bibs, and a wipy case with felt wipes that go into it. Adorable, I know.
Macy had a car seat canopy, but I'm thinking the Baby Girl will need her own :) Just like this one...
I've made 3 quiet books so far and we got the patterns for 10 more :) I have a feeling I won't make them all, but more quiet books are definitely in our future!
And my FAVORITE project! This will be Macy's Christmas present, a little far off I know, but there is nothing bad about planning ahead.
Isn't it ADORABLE?! I love it. It's a fort, it goes on a card table. I'm thinking we're going to do a kitchen and living room on the inside walls with a fridge that opens with food inside- Oh my goodness I'm so excited! Of course my mom will help with probably all of these projects :) Yay for crafty, awesome Mom's! Kyle is very excited for the fort and says that there has to be lots of secret compartments :) I think he wants his own :)

Our Baby is a...

We had our ultrasound the other day and they let us know that...We are super excited that Macy will be able to have a little sister and hopefully they will be great friends! I'm a little bummed that I don't get to decorate a nursery, but maybe I'll just redo Macy's room- or finally decorate our room ha ha. :)
