Weekend Wrap Up

No need for a bowling ball under my shirt this time- I got the real deal! This weekend Zack and I were able to go on a triple date with some friends of 'ours'.  I say 'ours' because they are Zacks friends that I then latch onto since he gets to go to school and be social and I teach all day. They are awesome though :)  He is good at picking cool friends.  We had a 'groupon' for bowling at Fat Cats. So we got 2 hours of bowling as well as a delicious meal from Costa Vida.  We played 2 games- 1 regular then for the next one we played we put up the bumpers and tried to hit the LEAST amount of pins!  It was very hard and pretty funny. You should try it some time!
           Dave, Rachel, yours truly, and Zack

After bowling, Rachel (pictured above), suggested we check out a new find of hers.  It is called 'The Chocolate' and it is this adorable dessert bakery off of State Street in Orem.  The owners bought an old home and have re-done it.  You can wander through the house and sit wherever.  They have lots of comfy couches or tables scattered throughout the home and they bring your dessert straight to you.  We had a great time- thanks for the recommendation Rachel! 

This past weekend was also my Fall Break from school.  That means that I only had school Mon-Wed. last week!  It was so great :)  Thursday I cleaned house then picked up Zack from campus and drove him to the airport for his first interview at UTMD in Galveston, TX.  He had QUITE the experience while traveling but his interviews went AWESOME.  I'm so proud of him :)  First one down and I'm sure only more to follow.  Now I just want to start hearing some acceptances!!

While Zack was out of town, I got to be 16 again and hang out with my Mom.  We went to Gardner Village, Roberts, Cafe Rio, watched Letters to Juliet, bought some fabric for a sewing project for Elise's room, and she even took me shopping for some much needed maternity clothes!  My Mom is the best!  I had a great time getting her undivided attention.  The break was as always, too short, but great nonetheless!

This 'n That

I realize it has been a while since I last blogged!  That is because not a whole lot has been happening over in our neck of the woods! Here is a picture of me at 28 weeks!  I am officially in my 3rd Trimester!  I had a Dr. appointment on Friday and they said I am measuring just as I should and the heartbeat sounds great!  All good news!  I can't believe little Elise will be here in December- we are so excited, we can't wait!  She is a mover and a shaker in my tummy but I love it because that lets me know she is ok!
I am really happy that it is finally October because I could put out my decorations!  I think that Oct., Nov., and Dec. are great months for decorations and I love to get into them :)  Here is my display table for the month- I was very please with how it turned out.  I can't wait to get all dressed up for Halloween and be able to have all the yummy fall treats and carve pumpkins!
Here is a close-up of my latest craft venture!  I wanted something on the other side of my display to balance out the pumpkin, so I searched online for fun Halloween sayings and thought this would be perfect!  I used my cricut to cut out the letters and mod podged them onto some fun Halloween paper.  I was happy with how it turned out.
This 'messy' photo is to show you how lucky/blessed we are!  All of these adorable girl clothes you see all over the floor and the crib behind them were donated to Zack and I from siblings.  We are so lucky to be the youngest with such great and knowledgeable older siblings.  We have been given so many clothes/toys/cribs/etc. we are so grateful for!  Baby Elise surely won't go without!  Thank you so much to those of you who have helped us out!  I can't wait to get the crib set up and to see her nursery 'ready' to go!
Here is a picture of one of the TWO dressers we were lucky enough to snag for the nursery thanks in LARGE part to my sister Nicole.  I saw these on one day while I was at school.  I emailed the link and asked Nicole if she thought they were a good deal-she did!  I asked her to call on it for me since I was at school.  She talked to the seller and we were the 5th people to call but since my sister was persistent and said she was able to pick them up RIGHT THEN- we got them!!  A BIG thank you goes out to Nicole for calling for me and doing the leg work to pick them up for us!  We got them for a steal- $40 for the 2 dressers.  Just in our price range :)
Lastly, here is a picture of your favorite Pugh's at today's football game.  A very happy football game.  BYU broke its losing streak :) It was a fun game to be at and PERFECT weather for a football game.  Great way to end a Saturday!  I hope you all enjoyed your weekends.
