Jesus is Coming

Look busy.

I saw that on a bumper sticker and thought it was hysterical.

LOST, for real

Our Lost addiction has gotten a little out of control as of late. Last night we went to our friends' house to watch it and they weren't home. So we wandered around our apartment complex listening at everyone's door to hear who was watching it and then invited ourselves over.

And then the kicker....
This morning in Li's prayer he said, "We're grateful that Locke was able to get the compass to Richard."

Do you think I should tell him it's not real?

Crazy busy.

Li is uberbusy this semester. He is doing an internship at the counseling center. He is on one of his professor's research teams. He has all his regular classes and homework. Plus I made him join the Hawaiian Club with me and so I drag him to hula practice twice a week.

Last night he laughed at me when I said I wanted to go to bed at 9:30. But when I got back from brushing my teeth I found him like this.

Today Li and I stole one of our favorite baby boys for the day. I don't think we are going to get anything done once our kid decides to pop out. I left Li and the baby while I went to change my clothes and when I came back Li was just staring at him while he drifted off to sleep.

So cute.

It makes me think all the days when I felt like this might actually be worth it.

Yesterday I went to the pregnant women group on campus. Everyone sat in a circle and we went around and said our name and when our baby was due. I felt like I accidentally came to the wrong group. It was very weird.

I want a microwave.

That is all.

a good read

I just read the most interesting article about how 10 women made 1 small change everyday for a month and got HUGE results.


Check it out here.

Hump Day.

We made it to 20 weeks--here's a mug shot to celebrate!
That's somewhere in the vicinity of halfway, right?
Because I am pretty sure the kid has moved into my bladder and is throwing a party there.

I LOVE peach cobbler SO MUCH!!

However, I always thought that its creation had to be a complex process involving either a dutch oven or a recipe with lots of ingredients or both.

I tried the lots of ingredients recipe route and it turned out awful!

Then Alysha let me taste hers which was super yummy and she claimed it was also super easy.

Here's what we did....
put about 2 cups of peaches and juice in a pan
dumped 1/2 package of yellow cake mix on it
sprinkled some cinnamon all around
melted almost 1/2 stick of butter and poured it on top
baked the whole mess for about 35 minutes

It was so good that even Li, who doesn't usually get excited about sweet things, said,
"This is the bomb!"

Yeah, it was good. My taste buds haven't been so happy night's dinner, but that's a post for another day.

This is what I ate for lunch the other day. No joke.

I also recently tried my hand at pancakes again. In the middle of another disastrous attempt I informed Li that he should probably start looking for a new wife.

I am REALLY bad at this stuff.

14 secrets

I've been reading this book lately per my dad's recommendation. It contains "the 14 secrets to a happy marriage." Before I started reading I told my dad it all looked like common sense to me and he agreed. But let's face it, marriage isn't exactly rocket science.

I'd say Li and I are happier than before, but that could have something to do with the fact that my hypersensitive nose no longer thinks he has a repulsive garlic stench.

Li was sad at first because he had to quit calling it Norma, then he realized he was going to have a baller and he got pretty excited!

We CAN'T WAIT to meet him!!!

Well this little creature growing inside of me is most definitely a kicker! I've been pretty sure it was kicking me for awhile now but yesterday in Sunday School there was no question about it. It even got a few off that were hard enough for Li to feel. Weird.

In a few hours we are heading off to find out if it is a boy kicker or a girl. Weird.

Free Food

Anyone interested in free breakfast Tuesday morning?

You just have to pick Li and I up from the airport.
