New kid on the block!

Yesterday one of my bestie's Melissa (and of course daddy Adam and big sister Briley) had Aubrey Ann Stauffer!!! Melissa was induced starting at about 8am and no real progress untill I believe 145ish when they broke her water at 3cm....she went from 3cm to 10cm in less than an hour and only pushed for 5 minutes!!! Aubrey was born at I believe 2:38pm on November 29th 2011 :) :) Melissa had no time for drugs since she progressed so fast! She definitely wanted them though but I am SOOOO proud of her for doing it without!

I just LOVE little Aubrey and am so happy to have baby Carlie's bff here! She is just perfect! Here are a couple pics from when I got to meet her last night!

holding the newest princess for the first time!!

Beautiful Aubrey Ann Stauffer 6lb 6oz 18.5 inches long! :)

Disclaimer!!! I know I'm off slightly on the times that everything happened but I know I'm VERY close!!

~Maggie May~

My mom text me and asked me to come over tonight once I got home from my work/my appointments...I kind of thought that was weird since she'd usually just text me or call or even email if she wanted a check (for insurance or phone since we still have joint) but I was like ok whatever! So I went....She asked me about my doctor's appointment and doted on how cute my new hairdo is blah blah blah....then she had to tell me something....dun dun dun.....

She got all teary eyed which of course makes me teary eyed which is unusual for me now that I'm pregnant I'm kind of a cold hearted bitch! (normally I'm SUPER sensitive). Anyway my Maggie May, Maggot the Faggot (I know HORRIBLE but whatev), Maggie Moo, or most of the time just Sisser died late last night at about 11pm :( She was MY dog, MINE all MINE  I didn't share her with anyone for the first 7 years of her life (we got her when I was about 12), she was my sister and my best friend, she helped me through breakups and all the trials and tribulations of middle school and high school and most traumatic my parents divorce right before my senior year of high school. After I left for college and my mom sold our house and moved into a new one that didn't have a fence at all we gave her to our family friends Missy, Roger, Emily, and Seth. Maggie LOVED it with them and they loved having her just as much! She had new kids to play with woohoo! And now she had TWO families to spoil her! They had her for about 6 or 7 years, but she was still MY dog and everytime we saw each other it was like we were never apart! She was just an amazing puppy!

I realize that she was WAY passed her time, boxers typically only live till 10 or 11 and she was 14!!! I knew this time would come soon, actually I am SO surprised it hadn't already come, but it still sucks and I'm still very upset. Partly maybe because I feel a little guilty....I almost feel like as soon as I bought this house with Tyler we should have taken her back, but really she had a new family she was with so it would've been bad for everyone! Maybe I should've been there in her final days, but that doesn't make sense b/c I can't just sit around with her and wait for her to die, it probably would've been a lot harder on all of us to see her like that!

Now I'm just rambling b/c my mind is going 1000 miles a minute! I'll attach a pic of her I have on this computer! She was so precious! My little Maggie May with her bear (the only stuffed object she didn't tear up!)  : )

RIP baby girl! You will be missed greatly and always loved!

Creating a Beauty Monster!

Yesterday Melissa and I went to go get pedicures to try to get NoName to come out, apparently there are pressure points in the feet and ankles that CAN induce labor. We took Miss Briley with us so she could have a little big girl time before baby sister gets here. She has never had a mani or a pedi (she is only almost 5 so thats not that weird!) so Melissa got her both! She LOOOOVED them!!! especially the part of the pedicure where they massage your feet and legs with lotion! She got a pretty sparkly blue on her toenails, with flowers on her big toes and a sparkly pink on her fingernails with flowers (and diamonds!) on her thumb nails. I think we definitely created a little monster!! It was SO CUTE though!!! Here are just a couple not very good cell phone pics!

                                                               SO EXCITED!!!!!

                      you can barely see here but she's trying to be super still to get her nails painted!

oh BTW the foot massage didn't work to get NoName out either! Melissa is getting an hour massage (her first!) today to try to help her along another way! :)

Last night (Friday the 18th) Melissa, Amanda, and I went to go see Breaking Dawn Part 1 at the AMC Fork and Screen for opening night! We were so excited and had been waiting a year for it to come out! (Just like every other Twilight fan!). We didn't get to pick our (assigned) seats so we were in the very front at the very end :( boo!

We got sat down about 30ish minutes before the previews started and ordered our food. I got Thai Bang shrimp tacos, they were amazing!!!! We also got crab rangoon dip which was SO GOOD! and I was super daring and got a Coke (I try to limit my caffiene as much as possible b/c of baby Carlie!). Anyway we were just eating and talking, minding our own business and the theater lady came up and asked for our tickets, we all pulled out our ticket stubs which looked like this

Can you see that?!?!?! They say they are for SATURDAY THE 19TH!!!!!! We had the right seats just the wrong day! I about died!!! There were 4 ladies that were supposed to sit there and were deciding on if they wanted those seats or not (ya know since they were so crappy). Thank God they decided to just go to the regular theater and not the Fork and Screen! We got to stay!!! WOOHOOO!!!! There is one plus to having crappy seats! No one else wants them!! haha!

Anyway after our little scare we got to enjoy the movie and it was AMAZING! We can't wait till part 2 comes out in a year!! After the movie Melissa got REALLY sick in the bathroom :( we thought she was going into labor! But no dice, baby NoName is still not here :( hopefully soon though! I can't wait to meet her and for her to have a name!!!

Tyler just got back from hunting yesterday (Tuesday), he goes out to Western Kansas with our good friend Rick and his family and friends. He typically goes every year but b/c of work he wasn't able to go the last 2 years :( He LOVES it and they have a great time! Especially when they can get a lot of birds!! The limit is 4 birds per day, they hunt for 3 days so the max he could get would be 12, but because it was SO HOT and SO DRY out there this summer there just wasn't a ton of birdies around. He ended up with 6, which I actually think is plenty for us!!

I got home from work last night and was going to get in the fridge to get Ty a glass of milk for dinner (to go with our Chipotle of course!) and this is what I see......

Yep thats pheasant legs, breasts and feet with nails!!!! I about puked!!! I was like ummmmm could you not at least COVER IT?!!?!? shortly after though he finish cleaning them (taking the feet off and getting the bullets out) and put them in the freezer!
