We recently visited our favorite "swimming hole" with our friends Brandon and Liz. It's getting HOT here in Tucson and it was SO refreshing taking a dip in Sabino
Canyon! Liz is going to pop her baby out any week now. It's only a matter of months until our move to Arkansas. Liz and Brandon, as well as several of our other friends, will also be leaving Tucson. We're cherishing our time left in
AZ with such great friends before we find a new "swimming hole" in NW, Beaver Lake! We will really miss everyone we've met here, but look forward to staying in touch!!

An Oasis in the Desert!

Penny for your thoughts....

Howdy! Well, it's heating up here in the desert...that's for sure. I'm excited to take Ryan to the pool this summer. I'll be the mom with the white legs and maternity swim suit! Oh yes, I can see it now! I've been chatting with some of my BYU roomies lately about pregnancy. Amazingly, 4 out of 6 of us are currently pregnant! Leave it to the Mormons to "multiply and replinish" the earth hugh? Well, we were trying to come up with just a few things that make us feel "attractive" during pregnancy. As thrilled as I am to be expecting a new little one, I was racking my brain to come up with even one! So, I thought it would be a fun question to throw out there... All you moms...what do you think??
Here's what I came up with:

1. A pedicure helps
2. Chatting with other gals about being preggo helps make your "bodily mis-haps" seem a little more normal.
3. The increase in bra size might be a plus for, mostly husbands
4. Working out at the gym makes you feel a little more like "super-woman"... but no matter what, that bum keeps getting bigger!
5. Your husband being in awe of how huge your belly is looking is entertaining but not so flattering.

So in conclusion, despite the 9 months of my body not "functioning normally" (will spare the details) or feeling "not so sexy" I do get a little miracle in the end. So is it worth betcha!
