Mail Love

It seems your oldest friends know you best. 

I got a little package in the mail from one of my oldest and sweetest friends. This is what she said, "Cant decide what is more you, "artsy", "PINK", or "glitter"! 

Totally the best compliment!!! 

I love it Lulu! You are the best, love you back!

(check out her blog, her kids are seriously the CUTEST!)

Summer is Here and Jello Cookies

 Im home with a sort of sick Baker today while everyone else is at Church, and its a little overcast. Those things combined make the perfect morning to do a little baking. I decided on these cookies I found on Pinterest. They look so pretty! I love the bright color!! I used Raspberry Jello because thats Brad's favorite.  Baker keeps repeating, "I wuv dees!" over and over. They are pretty easy too. I think it would be fun to coordinate them to match a party or holiday. 

Total bummer: as Im typing (and eating a cookie!) I smell the nasty mini mart down the street making fried chicken with old smelling oil and its totally grossing this pregnant lady out!!!

Warming up at the pool! 

We have been busy lately! We hit up the aquarium last Saturday, which turned out to be free admission and a bunch of other stuff because of an Earth Day celebration (sweet!). We went to the PCC and walked around for almost 4 hours, we have had long pool days and longer beach days with friends. Avery and Brad went on a long hike (for little legs) and into a spooky cave. Its been really fun. 
Makes me feel like Summer is here! Ive been so impressed with the boys, they are total champs!!!!

For those of you who follow the chicken saga: 
Its gotten WORSE! As of today, we have two roosters, two hens and about 20 chicks in our yard. 
Its getting serious people.

Coloring Eggs

I have the best memories of dying eggs with my cousins. I think we did it until we were well into high school! I never claimed we were cool :)

These two got into it this year, it was so nice to be able to to this outside! Thank you Hawaii!

Refused the egg dipper, now has blue fingers

My more sensible child using a tablespoon to dip

Can we eat these eggs? I always thought you should not eat them. Is that true? Or just me?
Also, is there a way to make deviled eggs without using mayo? I have a strong aversion!

A Little News

We are expecting baby no. 3!

Im due September 11th, so this week will be 17 weeks along. And its FLYING by!

Saw this on Pinterest and cracked up. When I was pregnant with Baker, Avery was sure it was a dinosaur :)

Things Ive been craving this time around:
1. McDonalds cheeseburgers! Its like a 99 cent piece of Heaven.
2. Soup. Early on soup was all I could eat, preferably vegetable.
3. Cream soda! I went to Longs the other day to get a little bottle but Baker guilted me out of it! He kept telling me, "soda is bad for your teeth, its bad for you" over and over so I put it back. He is right!

I haven't been into ice cream or sweets like I usually am. Also ground turkey (which is a staple around here) is super gross to me.

Ive been exercising a lot this time around and it feels great! I ran the Great Aloha Run a few weeks ago, 8.2 miles baby! And have been running, playing tennis, and doing Zumba every week.

The boys are very excited for a baby! So far their name suggestions are Bullseye for a boy and Skylee for a girl.

September will come around sooner than I expect Im sure! In the mean time Ill keep filling my baby pin boards (here and here) and crossing my fingers that 3 car seats will fit in the backseat of the Audi!
