The great cookie debacle.

I had the great intention of making cookies for a family in our ward because the mom was SUPER generous and gave us a TON of baby clothes. Like a TON. Adventure doesn't need anymore clothes for like at least 6 months.
Like I said, TONS of clothes. All from her!

So I went about making a batch of chocolate chip cookies (which I have done a billion times before without issue). Burned the heck out of the first 2 batches I put in the oven, even with a timer...pregnancy brain at its finest. And then something weird happened. The cookies were rock hard and would NOT come off the pan. I had to chip away at the next dozen to come out of the oven. So those were broken into a million pieces. My final dozen in the oven came out looking half decent so I saved those.
Then I started again with a whole new batch of dough. This time I did things a little different. First dozen, you guessed it, I burned them! So the next batch in the oven I was very careful to watch and time. 10 minutes late I pull them out of the oven and they had completely melted into each other and become one giant pan of cookie!!! I was soooo frustrated! So I went ahead and added like 2 more cups of flour because that was clearly the problem. The next 2 batches came out much fluffier and solid, but still hard. At least I had enough to take to the family...but super obnoxious and I don't think I'll be making anymore cookies anytime soon!!
proof of my burned, wadded up disasters of baking!



Where was Nate when I needed him?!

Lately...

What have we been up to lately?

Well for starters I made this:



It took me 3 days and lots of frustrations but it is finished (for now). Until a snap pops off or something.


Me and Adventure have been doing lots of growing. According to our latest ultrasound, he is weighing in at 3 lbs. 7 oz. We didn't get any good pictures of him though, he wouldn't move his hand away from his face. But we did get one of his big ol' feet!

Yesterday I even had a stranger comment on how far out my belly button was poking. That was a first.

We're not quite ready for him yet, we still need a few more things but we are getting very antsy to meet him! 
And he still remains nameless...well besides Adventure.

How did I never know these existed?!

Somehow I missed a whole slew of wedding pictures!
I was so happy to see some of these!
I love them!
Our photographer was fantastic ;)
I was cleaning up and found our CD of wedding pics and was feeling nostalgic so I popped it in and some of them I swear I had never seen before! So just for the heck of it, here's some favs!
