So I spent a lot of time on Pinterest today which i don't usually do so I feel mostly justified in wasting the time PLUS i found the best carpet stain remover ever and I didn't even have to go buy any ingredients! Maybe everyone already knows about this and I am just an idiot but I am still pretty excited about it. We have had these stupid black stains in our tan carpet since we moved into it and I have never been able to get rid of them UNTIL TODAY :) All you need is 2 cups hot water, tablespoon white vinegar, and a tablespoon clear dish soap (I didn't have clear dish soap just the original Dawn blue stuff, risky i know but I used it haha and it worked so we're good). Dump a little baking soda on the spots and let it sit for like 10 minutes then vacuum it up then pour some of the mixture onto it and let it sit for a minute and then i just scrubbed it a little and dabbed it up! It was the easiest thing ever and our carpet looks a million times better! I'm so happy. :) I wish I had a before and after picture but I didn't think about it until after I had cleaned up the black stains.

|This is our first Ultrasound from just 9 weeks. The first time we saw our cute little Jelly bean :) We found out the sex at our appointment yesterday but we don't get any pictures until my next appointment in 3 weeks so i'll post a current one then.|
Well its official! Hubby and I are going to be having a little boy in August and we couldn't be happier! I'm just reaching my 18 week point and things are really starting to look up. I was sick for pretty much the entire first trimester and things are finally starting to die down and I'm feeling more like myself again which is something I was positive would never happen. The sickness seemed to never end! I've been feeling pretty great (with a few exceptions) for about a week now and hopefully it will only keep getting better. Some exciting things that are happening in the Wardell family...
-Baby is kicking!! Bryce got to feel it too and it was so exciting. I feel it more and more everyday and it just melts my heart :)
-We will be moving in exactly 27 days to Wisconsin! I am so sad to be leaving my home and my family :( especially at this new turning point in our lives (baby) I can use all the help I can get! But I am excited to experience a different place for a few years (hopefully :S but lets be honest probably not less than 5) and to be there with my wonderful husband Bryce and our little boy. We'll have to come home and visit a lot so our baby can play with and get to know the family and cousins! Especially since Britt's little Carter will only be about a month older.
-We get to stay in Delta for Easter and i'm so excited!!! I know it may sound stupid but I LOVE Easter, it is one of my favorite holidays. The candy is the best, the colors, the grass, springtime!!! Awe :)..Not to mention cotton candy and 25 cent hot dogs!! It's just something you can only appreciate growing up in Delta and I'm glad I got to experience it!
-I chopped my hair! It is pretty dang short but I love it! My sister Britt did it for me and it looks great, she is amazing! I'll have to post some pictures soon of the new look.
That's all I can really think of right now so if I forgot anything important i'm just going to go ahead and blame it on pregnancy brain :)

What a great way to start off the new year! Big thanks to my hubby for all his hard work over the summer that earned us this much needed time away from the not so wintery but cold Utah weather. Surprisingly and much to our disappointment there just so happen to be a cold front sweeping into Orlando, Florida the night that we arrived on January 4th. Luckily it didn't last very long and when we went to Disney World the next day the weather was pretty amazing, not too hot and not too cold! We spent the rest of our vacation on the cruise ship which stopped in Nassau and Coco Cay. There we did some exploring, snorkeling, and some much needed beach bumming. We topped the whole vacation off with an awesome air boat ride in Florida before we headed home to Utah. Oh how I miss the sun and beautiful ocean!

|Softest sand i've EVER felt|
|Conch Shell Bryce found on the beach|
|Queens Staircase. This was amazing! It was an escape route for royalty back in the day and it was carved BY HAND out of solid rock! Took 16 years to finish.|
|Over 90 feet deep!|
|Enjoying one of the many awesome shows on the cruise ship, we got there early to get good seats!|

|This place was so funny! It was like the most hick people i've ever met but it was so much fun!|
|We saw so many gators, it was awesome!|
|This is not even a zoomed in photo, we were literally that close!|

I got to Relive tonight/this morning what my sister so vividly remembers from high school. Jaclyn the computer zombie. Ya see I had this crazy addiction in high school called "The Internet" and I dunno, some of you may have heard of it. I (along with catrillions of others i'm sure) have wasted like years of my life on it but when the zombie comes out there is no fooling around. I'm talking like crazy late hours on this thing! It starts with Email..Facebook...other peoples blogs....pinterest....Google....before you know it, it's 2:30 in the morning and you're up on the couch, computer in lap, eating chocolate covered raisins, listening to random people doing covers of your favorite country songs on Youtube and you cant even sleep anymore! Ever seen those commercials for Bing when the girl starts freaking out and rambling random crap from search over load or whatever it's about? That is how my brain feels right now! I'm FINALLY going to bed and I pra....what the? why is there a random stinky feet smell coming in from my second story window?...pray i'll be able to sleep. Wish me luck!

So I got the Relief Society blog list in my email yesterday and couldn't help but check a few of them out. Result... I can't believe how lame I am! All of these girls work so diligently on their beautiful blogs and I make a not so grand post about eh...every 1-2 months. So I made a pact with myself and I am going to try and be a more diligent blogger. I have a great life full of blessings and excitement and its my duty to write those memories down! ( Plus I have so many dang pictures I never do anything with but somehow feel they are save worthy) So what am i waiting for!? Here I come crazy bloggers, Im gettin' it in gear!
