On the way home from the airport this guy hit us. We’re all fine and my car is just scuffed, not even dented, but I’m still pissed about it. He told Eric he was sorry and he just had a lot on his mind… Which is why he swerved into my lane where I was driving, I guess. The worst part is I saw it happening in the mirror, but I thought surely he wouldn’t hit me. Surely he would realize he was drifting and get back to his side of the line. But no! I should’ve floored it when I saw him coming over. And then!! My mom and Eric weren’t even back in the car after talking to him before the guy sped off! So freaking rude!
Rumoured to be one of the seven gates of hell, the Stull Cemetery in the tiny 20 citizen village ten miles west and thirteen miles east of Topeka, Kansas. With two terrifying tragedies including a farmer who found his son’s burnt body and a missing man being hung from a tree in the town, there are more rumours that claim “the devil himself holds courts with his worshippers there”
I’m sorry, this is cool and all, but how can somewhere be 10 miles west AND thirteen miles east of Topeka, Kansas?! There is only one Topeka, right?
I am not going to miss this when it’s gone. Not one bit! #40weeks #pregnant #pregnancy
Wow you’re skin is so flawless. Did you use any specific creams or lotions?
I didn’t really use anything specifically. When I first found out I was pregnant a lady I worked with told me I HAD to use Palmer’s Cocoa Butter with Vitamin E so I got some of that. And then I ran out and was too lazy to go buy more, plus I didn’t like how it made me smell like chocolate and it’s kind of expensive for how small the bottle is. I’ve never been a huge lotion fan in general. I use a store brand “After Sun” lotion that has aloe in it (Banana Boat is the name brand) after I get out of the shower. Other than that I don’t use anything. I didn’t even get that linea nigra or whatever. I guess I just have to attribute it to amazing genetics.
Did you know that you can make houses out of plastic bottles? By filling them with sand, and molding them together with mud or cement, the walls created are actually bullet proof, fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 degrees in the summer time.
And it’s not like there is any shortage on used plastic bottles out there. Here are some statistics from treehugger.com:
“The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day which is 47.3 Billion plastic bottles per year. About 80% of those plastic bottles end up in a landfill!”
To build a two bedroom, 1200 square foot home, it takes about 14,000 bottles.
The United States throws away enough plastic bottles to build 9257 of these 2 bedroom houses per day! That’s just over 3.35 million homes, the same number of homeless people in America.
Many people in third world countries have taken up building homes out of plastic bottles, from Africa to Asia. Perhaps the trend will catch on in America and all of those bottles will stop ending up in the landfills. Wouldn’t they be better off housing the homeless? Kinda like all those empty houses scattered all over the country?
Besides being environmental, I Just kinda like how this house looks!

I don’t! I also made it through this whole thing with no maternity clothes. Most of my shirts are a little short now, but I can still make due with a lot of them. Those are my big accomplishments!! haha.
I did get pictures done. I just only put up the previews she sent me. I have the rest of them on my computer I just haven’t done anything with them yet. I should probably get around to that.
I am not going to miss this when it’s gone. Not one bit!

I decided with my yoga teacher this morning that it’ll be later in the week because my original due date was Friday, but they moved it up to today at my first appointment because he was measuring big or something.
Would it be weird to eat guacamole flavored chips and queso at 5 am?
Whenever a stranger asks me about my baby, like when he’s due or if it’s a boy or girl and what his name will be, I feel like they’re going to put a hex on him.
Maybe it’s because we’re getting close to Halloween or maybe it’s because I’m a freak. The world will never know.
My bio dad (far left) is a short, midgey man (seriously, I think he’s only like 5’4”) which makes this suit look really quite funny on him, but he does clean up well. I’ve never seen him in anything like this before, not that I’ve seen him a ton in my life.
This picture is from their “Distinguished Gentelmen’s Ride” today. I don’t know the point of it, but I will say they look pretty dapper. My favorite is obviously the kilt man.
My cousin who used to be a L&D nurse seems to think so.
I just answered an ask privately on accident and I wanted to check out the person who sent it to me (plus I still needed the info she had written about). So if you’re reading this and that was you please come back to me!!!
