Weddings and Babies

This weekend, we had a wedding reception and a baby shower. (Not for the same person though.) The wedding reception was for Ryan's brother, Trevor. They had it at the art musuem! There were a couple...interesting...statues, but once you got past that, it was a really neat place!

The food was great, the decorations were great, Heather and Trevor were in love (and great), and the guests were great. (Hey, Ryan and I were there. What more can you ask for?)

One of my favorite things at the reception was this little table that had a typewriter sitting on it. You were supposed to type advice to the newlyweds. I went to type my advice, but realized I had no clue how to use the thing. How do you capitalize letters? How do you delete typos? In the end, my message read like this:

go onndates. julie

Best advice ever--if you can interpret what I was trying to say. It was amazing though, some people were pros at it! Ryan said typewriting is like texting for old people.

Abraham Lincoln even came to the reception.


Today was my baby shower that my sister-in-law Veronica threw for me. Everyone was so nice to come and spoiled the baby with lots of amazing gifts! If you were one of the people who came, THANK YOU!!!

One of the games we played was a fun pictionary game. I had to draw a word that I know oh too well.

What a fun weekend.

Fly Guts

Today at work, I felt something on my arm. I looked down and saw this little critter:

Grossed out, I tried swatting at it to make it fly away...only it didn't fly away like normal flies do. Instead, I successfully smashed it on my arm.

I was thoroughly grossed out. I'm pretty sure I washed my arm about a million times.

Speaking of work...I'm not sure how I'm going to survive my 12 hour shift tomorrow. I am exhausted as a type this. Friday cannot come soon enough.


6 Months!

Guess what? I am now officially in my 3rd and final trimester!

What's in a Name?

As I type this, Ryan is currently putting up the baby's name over the crib. It has been fun...

except for the part where we found an insect in our freshly spray painted letter
or when we discovered how hard it was to hang the letters
or when I caught Ryan misspelling our poor child's name on the wall
or when we figured out one of the letters was smaller than the rest
or when we were charged per letter at the store (this kid does have kind of a long name).

If we had known how complicated this task was going to be, we would've named him something with 2 letters--like Al or Bo or after my great uncle GO. (pronounced G.O.) Too bad we didn't think of it earlier.

Oh well, our project is actually starting to look really good (once you get past the midget letter).

Lazy Summer Days

Ryan asked me if I updated the blog today. I said no...and then felt like a slacker, and decided to fix that.

So hello blog world!

Ryan and I are babysitting a Wii this weekend.
Lately we have played:

3 games of Mario Party.

Hours of Wii Tennis.

And a healthy amount of Mario Kart.

And just so you don't think we are lazy--Ryan also flew a kite. And I watched. I guess that still makes me lazy. Oh well.
