Poll & Other Things

Okay everyone, I put up a new poll because they are just fun! Please vote!!

As for an update... I am feeling good, just big, sore, and like my joints are all loose... which they probably are :) It's getting harder to even walk, which just makes me feel pathetic. I am really working on disguising the waddle. I'm not perfect at it though. At this point, I have no idea when I will have my baby. I feel like I could go at any time (early or late). I really have no idea. I know my body is making the preparations for it and have been for a while, but those preparations could continue for a long time. Who knows.

Here is a picture of me on my 37 week mark!

As for other things... I am excited and not excited to stop working. My last day will be either this Tuesday or I may work the week after Thanksgiving, depending on how I feel. I am hoping to work the week after because that's a whole other week of pay! Nate and I are both getting really excited though. Also, we have some good news... Nate did get a job offer in Chicago. We're really excited about it but we still haven't made our decision. We have until the end of the year to decide. We're waiting to hear back from a couple more companies to make a decision. We'll keep you posted on that topic.

Lastly, I saw Twilight last night. I must say I really love all the books... I think they are all just really good! The movie was definitely not as good as the books, but that was to be expected. Mostly it was really corny and awkward, but it was entertaining. I really liked a few of the actors in it... but unfortunately they were not Bella and Edward. The girl who played Jessica was absolutely AWESOME! She played her so well, better than I expected. Also, the guy who played Mike Newton was pretty good too. I hated the way they portrayed Jasper. Someone had said that he was like Edward Scissorhands and it is so true. Bella seemed very... disbelieving the entire time, like she was just shocked at every conversation. It just seemed really unnatural. Edward just seemed like he was on the verge of tears most the time. He just seemed a lot less mature than I had imagined him in the book. I feel bad because I think it could have been a really awesome movie but it just wasn't. It was fun, funny, and entertaining. That's all.

Nate and I are working on the Harry Potter series. We have been listening to them on CD and the narrator is just awesome! We just ended book 4 and are now on book 5 and we love them!

Anyway, that is all for now... I hope all is well!

I'm gald you're doing well, for the most part. :) It seems like most people have their babies early, but who knows. I think you should post another picture of you and the belly. :) Either blog or facebook. I miss you too! I keep thinking of ways to get to Utah for a visit, but with winter coming and having no money makes it kind of hard. So probably not until next summer after the baby is born. But if you guys want to come this way you're more than welcome to. :)

You should definitely move to Chicago. Then we can meet up at the Chicago temple! We are about an hour and a half away. I know how you feel. That last month is the worst! It'll go by fast though, and she'll be here before you know it. Just make sure your bags are packed!

I can't believe you are so close to having your beautiful baby that is just so exciting. Also, that your husband got a job offer in chicago. chicago is a great place- its one of my FAVORITE big cities!

i should show you a picture of what I looked like that far along. that is exactly how my belly looked. people were constantly telling me i had a 'movie belly' or that i just stuck a basketball in my shirt and that is exactly how you look! so cute.

You are such a cute pregnant lady! I keep checking back to see if you have had her yet. Come on already! Can't you just do some lunges and jumping jacks? She'll pop right out. JUST KIDDING! Hope you are feeling okay. Bet you can't wait to hold your baby in your arms, not your belly. I'm sad that I didn't know you were down here! I would have liked to have seen you. Can't wait to hear the news!

Chicago would be really cool...a great opportunity! It would be far away but you wouldn't have to stay there forever necessarily and it could be a great experience to live somewhere new and so different. Good luck with making decisions on that! I am sure that you will be guided to where you are supposed to be. Your picture is so cute, Kelly! I don't think I looked that good at 37 weeks...if you are uncomfortable (which I don't doubt you are) then you are really good at hiding it. You will look back at your pregnancy pictures after your baby is here, and stare at them and think "Wow, was I really once THAT pregnant," and it is so crazy to know that your baby was once inside you. We're excited to hear the news that she's here!
