my weekend, the winner is.....AND my other new love...

This weekend Cory and I drove up to Twin Falls, Idaho to see his family. Cory's uncle Bob passed away on Monday. He died at 55 of a heart attack. It was very shocking and sad for everyone. We drove up Friday night as soon as Cory got done with work. It was a very nice funeral service. I am so grateful that I know that families are forever and that life here on earth isn't the end. It was nice seeing all his family get together to help each other through this hard time. And Cory and I always love seeing our cute nieces and nephews. It will be nice to see everyone again for Thanksgiving.

So I've done it… I have finally decided on what Hayden will sleep on, his bedding set I mean. I am not sure why I have been obsessing over it. Probably one, because I obsess over anything and everything just because I can. Two, my hormones lately have been through the roof; I've been having mood swings all over the place. I hate that sometimes I can't control my own emotions. They have started to calm down now that I am a little more into trimester 3.(thank goodness I have such a patient and loving husband who has seen my crazy mood swings up close and personal) And three, probably cause this is my first baby and I worry about what he does or doesn't have way more than I should. In the one part of my head, the “normal,” sane part, I know all he is really gonna want is me to hold him and love him and feed him and all that basic necessity stuff. But the other crazy and irrational part of my head thinks my little newborn is going to be not very pleased with his nursery and other baby products we have for him. Yes I know this is totally insane, and I am finally swallowing the fact that he really isn't going to care at all. And that he isn't going to remember what he wore or was sleeping in when he was a few weeks old years from now. I guess just being a mom I have that natural instinct that I want him to have the very best of everything that I can possibly give him. I love this little boy so much already it’s overwhelming sometimes. I can't wait to finally have him hear with Cory and I.

So, without further ado the bedding winner I picked is.... NEITHER of the two I asked peoples opinion about! Ha ha ha... I happened to find this other one that is plainer and not patterned with boats, planes, cars etc... I have seen it before but thought Cory would hate it. I decided to show it to him anyway and he shocked me saying he really liked it, a lot! So that’s the one we will go with. He surprises me sometimes with the things he does and doesn’t like. It kinda drives me crazy sometimes but he always keeps me on my toes, its one of the reasons I love him so much. And my sister in law made a good point that if the bedding isn't themed too then it would be easier to transition his room to something else once I am absolutely tired of looking at cars. So thanks everyone for your opinions and input. And also being patient with my crazy, psycho, obsessive mommy side. Here is a picture of the winner. You can click on it to see it up close if you want and what it comes with! Its way cute and I am very happy and content with our selection.


So the other part of my blog title is "my other new love." I have big news for all of you out there... DRUM ROLL PLEASE........ I bought the first book of the Twilight series at Sam's Club the other day! I started it yesterday and couldn't put it down! I am already half way done, it is so fantastic, and I love it so much. I will be done with the whole thing either by late tonight or tomorrow and then I'm rushing back to Sam’s or Wal-Mart or somewhere to get the second book! I love to read and I haven't really read in a long time. This was a great book to get me jump started on reading again. So thank you to all who have peer pressured me into reading this series. I was so put off by the fact I heard it was about vampires... But everyone I am totally in love with Edward. I told Cory that the other night and he just rolled his eyes at me. I then had to make it clear that I still love him very much as well. :) If he can have his ESPN, I am having my Twilight...Stephanie Meyers is such a great writer, I am absolutely enthralled with this book. So now it's my turn to put the pressure on to anyone who hasn't started reading these absolutely FABULOUS books! GET THEM, READ THEM, LOVE THEM! I got my first book at Sam's Club for 7 bucks! And I know it’s at Wal-Mart for 8... You can't beat that deal!

I'm so glad I am finally part of this "cool club," that shares my new found love for these books and Edward. Whoever is going to the movie this November please let me know! I am not totally sure if I’ll be able to get Cory to go with me :) So everyone I'm off to finish my first book! Hope everyone had a delightful weekend!
