three things thursday.

by Janetha on July 3, 2014

in family time,oh baby

hi, guys! happy long weekend! mine kicked off nice and early at 11:30 AM, we decided to close the office early. wahoo! 

marshall is off doing marshall things, so i am currently eating pace’s–bountiful’s finest little diner. i got a fried chicken sandwich and french fries with fry sauce. does it make it fancier if i put it on a glass plate?


today has actually been quite eventful! i thought i would share three things from the day, because.. alliteration. three things thursday! :)



yes, like, right now, as i type! she is 38 weeks along and contractions came this morning. yesterday at prenatal water aerobics i told her she had at least a good 10 days before she’d go into labor. she agreed and said the 12th seemed like the day her babe would come. we were wrong! she’s having her NOW! and i am getting the play by play. it’s been the best to be pregnant at the same time as my BFF.. i am so so soooo excited to meet her little girl! hopefully her labor isn’t tooooo long. it’s already been all day, though!

2. speaking of birthdays, it would have been my little nephew’s fifth birthday today.



longtime readers may remember when my brother and SIL lost eddy, their little boy, in 2009. we do a balloon send off every year at his grave. i cannot believe five years have passed! today it happened to get super stormy and crazy right before the send off! the wind was going nuts and then big, huge raindrops started falling from the sky.



we were still able to let those balloons fly in his honor! love you, bud!


3. i’m 32 weeks today! 


before the rainstorm, it happened to be bright and sunny. since i was off early, i hit up the pool with mands. i can’t believe that 1- i only have 8 weeks left of being pregnant (well, give or take, considering jessica is now delivering at 38 weeks!) and 2- i am going to get bigger than i am. i can’t fathom it! but every week, sure enough, i get bigger! and that little man gets squirmier! he loves to wiggle around. but, thankfully, pregnancy isn’t too bad and i am enjoying his kicks and wiggles. we still have a lot to do, so he can stay in that big belly for awhile longer. ;)

i am going to keep this short and sweet! i am heading to watch fireworks tonight. 

oh! wait.. one more thing, before i go, i wanted to let you locals know that my sister has her suuuuper cute house up for sale! it’s in bountiful and it is positively perfect. 3 beds, 2 baths, a huuuuge yard/garden, and, well, it’s adorable. you can check out the listing HERE. if you are in the market to move, it’s a good one.


ok! that’s all she wrote! have an absolutely fabulous independence day weekend!

That is so sweet, to do a balloon send off! Glad y’all were still able to do it!

Oh my gosh, you look great! and I love your annual tradition of the balloon send off, I think it is great you all come together for that. Happy 4th!

You look beautiful girl!! I know it’s crazy to think about how BIG we will get haha ;) July 6, 2014 at 10:01 am

When I was a kid, I overheard one of my aunts say to my mother that it was a good thing I was smart,
as I wasn. Maybe government officials mask their true intent by ringing immoral claims and throwing out bible
verses. Whichever route you choose, starting a business association will be a rewarding venture.

You look fanfreakingtastic!!! I delivered at 38 weeks as well, hard to believe that my little 38 weeker will be 3 months old on Tuesday. I feel like I was just at 32 weeks!

You’re looking great! It is so funny how you can’t believe that you can possibly keep getting bigger…and then you do. Ha! The memorial looked beautiful. Glad you were with family this fourth!

What a great way to remember your nephew! You look rockin’ in that bikini. Good luck in the home stretch!

I love the balloon send-off you do every year. It warms my heart! <3

Also, you look great!!! You're clearly one of those "I swallowed a basketball" pregnant ladies! lol If I ever have a child, that will be my goal! HA!

My baby was due July 2nd but came June 17th, 15 days early. I was shocked as I had a small weight gain and he is my first. I love my little 3 week old.

I LOVE that you are rockin a bikini at 32 weeks. That has always been an aspiration of mine if/when I ever have kids.
