8 weeks

So far, I remember why I hated being pregnant through the first month. Don’t get me wrong, I’m really excited that there is a life growing inside of me. Thrilled that in 9 short months, I will be holding my sweet love bug. That being said.. HOLY CRAP!

I spent Sunday morning in the E.R. I was extremely dehydrated and I needed fluids ASAP. As soon as the put the IV in and gave me Zofran for my nausea, I felt amazing. Mike said my color came back immediately! Dr. Cruz had to use an ultrasound machine from 1990. (on Sundays, my little town shuts down! the ultrasound tech wasn’t available) It gave NO detail. It was just a picture. But, I got to see my little bean at 8 weeks! It was so cute and little. I gave him a hard time because he couldn’t even print a picture for me. But there was only one baby (I’ve been having twin dreams.. wow) and it looked healthy and it was in my uterus! That made me feel 100% better!!

Needless to say, I have been extremely nauseas throughout the whole pregnancy. I spend most of my free time laying on the couch watching TV or taking a nap. Olivia is so good to me, she brings us books to read together and she comes and snuggles with her Momma. I’m so blessed that she isn’t a needy toddler. She even likes to play by herself.

Since being home from the E.R. I have been extremely sleepy but I feel really good. They doubled my nausea medicine and I honestly think that is the only thing that helps. Nothing else works. Well, that and my husband hugging me and staying close. Oh I love my sweet sweet husband. He can instantly make me feel better. Reminds me of being a little girl. I would wait all day, when I was sick, for my Daddy. He would come in and snuggle up to me in bed, say a prayer, and I would instantly fall asleep. I do the same thing with Mike. He really is my soul mate.

As far as cravings:

  • subway sandwiches
  • french fries
  • hard boiled eggs
  • sour things
  • fruit, mostly strawberries
  • orange juice
  • dry top ramen

I don’t really have an appetite so whatever happens to sound good at the moment, I definitely indulge.  I wish I liked drinking water as much as I use too. I cant seem to drink enough.

I’m hoping that since I feel better, I will be back in blog land more. I’m crossing my fingers! :)

Valentines Day

We had a really good valentine’s day. We mostly just enjoyed each others company. Nothing is better than that as far as I’m concerned. We did get some pretty awesome presents though.

Olivia got some recycled crayons from Chasedreams on Etsy. She loved them and even tried to eat them.. they do look amazing but she figured out what they were really for..

I made this key ring for Mike. They were selling online for 15 dollars! shut up! I made mine for 84 cents! Plus an extra 69 cents for the cute box! It pays to be creative! He loved it, and thought it was awesome


Mike bought me  these dishes! I love love LOVE them! I had tucked them into my favorites “wish list” folder.  I never knew he actually looked in there! Mine were sitting on the coffee table full of Hershey hugs and almond kisses. My favorite. He really did good this year, I had NO idea! :)

PS. I hate keeping secrets. I’m really not good at it. I promise I will let you in on Saturday! PROMISE! It’s a really good one :) Everything will make sense after I tell you. Including why I have been neglecting my blog :)

this is kind of my life right now. a mess.
does that look familiar? coffee. bills. to-do lists a mile long. a calendar that is days behind?

And really, nothing has changed in this Archi. house. Mike and I are both working like crazy. I just recently cut my hours down to 24. I couldn’t handle it. I don’t know how some Mom’s work 40+ hours a week and still have time to cook, clean and play with their babies. If there is some magic pixie dust, I want it.   And to all the Momma’s out there that do it every week.. you deserve a cupcake!

Working so much means that everything is behind. I don’t even want to think about the bathroom because it hasn’t been touched in 2 weeks! yes, I'll admit it!! The floors!? The horror!!

So here I am, 1589 days later. Finally updating my blog!

Hi, I missed you all so much :)

Really though, not a thing has changed around here. Olivia’s birthday is in 11 days. And all I can show for it, is some orange paper plates! yea, I win Mom of the year! Our theme this year? Polka Dot and Penguins. We love Waddles, and we love polka dots. It’s rightfully so. Here is an idea of some cute stuff from gymboree, which I’m kind of using for my theme. I really love the sherbet, hot pink and black. bday

Looks like a trip to Yakima is in order. Let’s just add that to my to-do list!

And lately, I’ve been so tired that I might just wait for all this and get some Elmo plates at target and say screw it! That’s kind of how it’s been around here. I’m tired. I don’t wanna. Who wants pizza, taco bell or jack in the box for dinner??

So that is where I have been. I promise more fun and exciting blogs to come. Once my husband and I get back into the same week that everyone else is in.
