Some of this....and that....

Emily, the sweet friend who put together my babyshower. Then a couple belly pics...and the group of awesome ladies who came to the shower. I am so so so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life. Thank you so much to those who came....and those who couldn't.


Only 11 days til I'm due....and I'm Huge for REALS this time!

Another belly shot....

Figured I would post a few up to date belly pics. they are not good, and I'm sorry, but at least there are some. It is hard to have a pic taken when you feel like a chunk and it grows daily. Today I simply stepped in the bathtub to open the curtains....getting out, I tripped, and knocked over the vacuum as well as pulled a few muscles. I can't believe how OFF balance you become very quickly. Anyway....the count down is on. only almost 2 1/2 months. CRAZY! So much to do....

Robert and Lynette surprised us by purchasing this pack-n-play for us. We love it! (We picked it....but their generosity is not overlooked.) It was funny watching ERic struggle to put it together. That is, until he found the directions. The closet is the start of her wardrobe. Baby clothes are so fun. If she takes after her dad, we are in trouble!:)

This pic was taken a few weeks ago, so I am definitely bigger, (I will take more pics soon:) But this is the first belly shot. It's amazing how much tighter and stretchier I feel everyday. I can't do the normal things as tie my bend over to pick stuff up off the floor. and I'm not even that huge yet! it's kind of funny.

This is compliments of Rusty. Talk about motivation. Yikes!

So, it has been a very busy yet fun month. Finally i am feeling better. I actually do stuff. I spend many many weeks, on the couch, sleeping, in bed, sleeping, watching movies, tv, etc. It was awful. I felt awful...both physically, and just in general especially for Eric. I never wanted to do anything, but he was so sweet and helped me out and never complained. Now that that has passed, we have been busy looking and choosing a house to buy. Well, we found it, and our projected closing date is Sept 15th. Which is way exciting.

To make the month even better, we had my 20week Ultrasound last week. Yep! That means we know what we are having! Welcome to Baby GIRL Zweifel. We got some fun pics, so I'll try to get them on the computer soon. Now we are thinking about names. Any ideas? Leave me a message with your ideas. Not too traditional, but not too crazy, either. Please help!

Idaho Falls

Another trip we took in July, to the Zweifel Reunion in Idaho Falls. The little guys were SO tired after spending the night for the first time at an open kennel. They seemed to like it. Then they crashed!

We thought the temple there looked so pretty with the lights and the falls. Pictures just don't do it justice.

Back in June...

Back in June we had a piece, or 3 pieces, of home came to visit. Three of my awesome nephews. We had fun. They had fun....( I think) but I introduced them to Rockband...and this is their debut!...

I think it's hilarious Drake thinks he is a lap dog! I guess he gets a little jealous of the little guys!

Stupid Computer

My computer is being VERY dumb. I can't upload pictures the right way, so I never know what pictures I'm writing about. These are just a few of a hike we went on when My good friend Laura and David came to visit. It was the first time I'd done ANYTHING outside for weeks being that I didn't feel good 99.9% of the time. It was a beautiful day, and Drake had fun too!!!

Is it time????

Well, I have debated and debated on when to post THIS....of all posts. I think many of you will agree it is definitely a delicate matter, and timing is important.

Well....Here goes. Somewheres...around the 7th of January 2011.....the newest addition of our little family should be making their grand entrance. That's right folks! After about 10 months of trying, 2 rounds of clomid,(which I realize is very minor), the worst Hot Flashes I have EVER experienced in my life, we finally will be having a baby! We couldn't be more excited,,,,or more nervous. I'm 12 weeks this Friday, and feel like it's time to share the news.

On August 23rd we will find out if it's a Him or a Her....(though I keep thinking girl)-Any guesses?

Anyway....that's the latest and greatest from the Zweifel household. Now I have only months to train my dogs they CAN'T jump up on everything. There is work to do....OH, and if this nausea could stop anytime soon,,,,that would be AWESOME!

The GreenBelt.

We went for a walk down the green belt here in Boise. It is sooooo beautiful!!!!

Day at the park.

A few weeks ago, Eric and I took Drake and headed to a park with Emily, Ethan and Silas. It was overcast, but it was so nice to just get outside.

Eric and Ethan,

what can i say. he loves to play:)

This slide was funny. it looks like a tongue,,,and its so narrow.

Kinda goofy. but I love it!

Love it!

I have been meaning to post something of "greatness" on the ole-bliggity blog lately. But every time I sit to do just that....nothing seems to fit that category. Something really Great! Hummmm.....So I thought about posting about work. About how I was put on the Code team the other night, to respond to any code throughout the hospital....and then freakishly My very own patient was the patient who coded. The first time it was MY patient. But then i didn't write about it, because most people don't really wanna hear about stuff like 'near-death' instances, CPR and intubation. So.....I won't talk about work. lol....

How about friendship:
I have had some really great times with my new friend and neighbor down the street. Time just hanging out! Laughing. Talking. Playing games for hours. Watching movies, laughing some more. It reminds of past times. I mean...we all have friends, acquaintences, or people whom we do and don't connect with; and friendships that just come easier than others. For the past few weeks, I have really reflected upon some of those friendships I've had. As the single person, I didn't fully understand how friendships change when you get married. After moving a billion miles away, and getting married, the friendship category took a major shift. I am so grateful for the new friends Eric and I have made. And i am so grateful for the many friends I have had throughout the years who have been examples to me, and taught me the type of friend I WANT to be. I have definitely been blessed with amazing people in my life. The sad/weird thing is, i had almost forgotten how much I enjoy the company of a true and honest friend...and I was almost okay with it. almost :)

What else to spill.
Humble pie anyone? I don't know about you, but I continue to learn the same lessons very frequently. Tonight at work, I came in, looked at my schedule...and spent hours planning in my pissed off little head, a confrontation with my boss about how inconsiderate I thought she was being, and yadda yadda yadda.....I thought she was throwing a few night shifts in the midst of my day shifts (without even speaking, or expalining anything to me)...and for those of you who have worked nights, you know the switching is not easy. Well, after ranting and venting....I found out that the "p" didn't mean pm-am, but it meant "Preceptor"-I'll have someone with me on the DAYS I'll be working. Go figure. So, when I learned that via my charge, I hung my litle head in shame, blushed and just stated....."I deserve this!" When will I learn to keep my mouth shut...and simply Ask!!!! Embarrassing. I sure got mine! that's enough. PS-Eric's business is rocking! I'm so proud of him. I just hate how he is always working! Oh the joys of your own business.

cheers everyone! I hope all is well in blogger world!

Let me try this again....
Desiree, Brandon and Wicket stopped for an overnight visit. The dogs missed their old friend...and I think had a good time.
Desiree was my roomie in Tucson for over a year. the 3rd brother to my two pups....and chuys bestie! It was awesome to have them come! I miss old friends.

Little Trip to McCall

We took a little trip up the mountain to a cute little town called McCall with the DeSpains. We had a good time just hanging out. Playing games, swimming, eating. This pic is emily and Silas, on the drive up. that little boy is so fun!

The boys playing near the frozen lake. there was lots of ice-fishing going on.

Here is Ethan and Eric, waiting to play games as Emily and I made one of our many trips to the vending machines:)

Silas and Emily! So cute!

One year Already!!!!

It is so hard for me to believe not only that I have lived in Boise over a year now, but also that I have been married....ONE YEAR! Saturday was Eric and my anniversary. It was a quiet day....but a good one! And we ended it eating a fabulour italian restaurant. We decided since we had a pasta bar at our reception....we would make it a tradition! Pasta/Italian every march 13th!

I do apologize for the picture overload to follow...I thought I'd post a run of pictures from our big day, back to our first days of dating.....It's not as many as I found.....but some of my favorite memories. Sadly, they all look the same, but I promise they each have a story and a memory....

I love the cake in the face picture. It was so much fun....and it reminds me of the random laughs we have.

I think this pic is funny...Us in the biking get up. My sister Angie visited last september, and we went biking. Eric loves it. I'm still not good at it all....but I think I wanna try to get into it.

this is at Eric's brother's Scott and Amanda's wedding. Good times!

this was our first camping trip we took. My family reunion in Luna NM. We took Cimmeron on his quad, Eric on his bike, and I on a quad...went ridin through the mud to the az state line. It was a fun time...and even funner trying to clean up while camping.

Jackson hole trip with Eric's dad and family.

The next few from our fabulous week in Cabo when Eric FINALLY proposed! Man, I wish I was that tan now:)

Just funny!

Eric and his dad came to Tucson one weekend, so we went to Pinnacle Peak for dinner and cheesy entertainment.

Our first ski/snowboarding trip. Then the 2nd...

Awww......I just love him! And his kisses!

Nice cold-sore on my lip.

I think I'd known him 2 weeks? and we went for this LOOOOOONG drive. It ended up being pretty fun. I learned he loved to take pictures of scenary.
