Same Old

Hey everyone! Nothing new going on here in my little basement apartment. It's just me and the baby keeping it cool by staying indoors during the day. I almost feel like one of those weirdos that only emerge at night. It's so flippin hot outside though! Who wants skin damage and swollen feet? Not me, so I try to stay occupied doing domestic housewife things. Take for instance last night. I've never made sweet rolls before and decided it would be a good idea to try it out. All I got out of that was a nearly burned down apartment and doughy sweet rolls. I never realized that you can't put 25 rolls in a tiny square dish just because they look tiny. The pan of rolls basically exploded in my oven and burned sugar does produce profuse amounts of smoke that'll burn your eyes out. We had to open our front door and all the windows to try and air out the apartment. Brannon was like "Man, I was looking forward to those!" I think he was more distraught than I was and not because I nearly burned down the house, but because after waiting so long for a sweet roll, he wasn't going to get one. We were able to scavenge a few of the rolls, fortunately. I guess it wasn't a total waste:) I'll try again, but not soon. It's going to take me awhile to recover from this experience. Other news, the baby is moving around a lot now. Sometimes it's pretty intense and I'm like "Okay, that's good for now baby:)" It feels pretty cool, but kind of scary at the same time. Did any of you moms out there have weird dreams when you were pregnant? I keep having two dreams over and over again. The first is that I'm at Shake Shack. I've been craving a Southwest Chicken sandwich, fries, onion rings, a bacon cheese guacamole burger, a shake, and superman ice cream since January. Every time I have this dream I'm either working there or I'm trying to order and I never get to satisfy my cravings! For some reason I'm also cheated out of the food that I want in my dreams. I'm going to Monticello in a couple weeks and I will have all of those things and be sorry about it later:) The other weird dream is that I'm back at my teaching job. In the dream I'm always a substitute teacher and I'm always trying to push the teacher now out of the classroom. I think I must have separation anxiety or something j/k. Anyway...hope you all are enjoying the summer. Have fun on pioneer day! There's a lot to do up here, so I plan on having myself some fun:)

Oh my gosh I had CRAZY dreams when I was pregnant. Only mine were violent ones! I couldn't even watch CSI or Law and Order because it gave me the worst nightmares. When I was really sick I had dreams about food ALL the time, and then I would wake up and puke. Pregnancy is totally a whole body experience, that's for sure! Luckily once the baby is here, it's all worth it. That is so funny about the sweet rolls, I can totally picture Brannon just being so distraught about not being able to eat them, ha ha. Post pictures when you get a chance!

I know I had dreams but I can't remember them. I have wierd dreams all the time. I had one the other day you will appreciate. I dreamed that I had to give Silver Scissors I good deep cleaning! It was not a nice dream.
My most favorite thing being pregnant was feeling Lilly kicking and moving, there were some days she was more moble than usual and it was pretty uncomfortable. About a week after I had her I found myself missing that feeling so enjoy it while it lasts.

Sorry about the cinnamon rolls! If you want help let me know, I found a really good recipe, that finally works great and I promise they don't explode! ;o) ha. I had the worst and weirdest dreams when I was pregnant! One of my weirdest was that I was in the hospital in labor, Cole had gone out of the room to get me ice chips and Pres. Hinkley walks in gives me this huge hug and then tells me to name HIM Gretha!! I was so scared Cambri was going to be a boy and that it was a revelation or something that I HAD to name it Gretha after Cole's grandma! We won't mention other dreams I had, that one is mild. Pregnancy does some weird things to you! Enjoy the onion rings and things you deserve it!

p.s. I agree with Haley, enjoy the moving while it lasts because you will miss it when he's not there anymore. Just wait till your belly looks like it's morphing. Awesome!

I have a good recipe if you want. They are a long process to make, but I am not a good cook by any means and mine turned out good.

Crazy dreams are totally normal when you are pregnant, even if you dont have dreams otherwise. I used to just dream about my baby and what he would look like, but sometimes he would turn into a she and so I would think it was a sign that I was actually having a girl even though the ultrasound said boy. lol
