Forever In Blue Jeans

Last night Cody and I had the one in a lifetime expereince of watching Neil Diamnod live at the Delta Center. My mom took us. We were on the floor, row 12, front and center. It was incredible.

I must say that the best part of all was seeing all of the older women freak out when he first came on stage.

Cody, my mom, and I danced the night away, yelling all the words to almost all of the songs. What can I say, I grew up listening to him. His voice feels like home.

We weren't allowed to have a camera, but Cody got some pictures and videos on his phone. I'll have to post them later.

Until then, feel jealous...very very jealous. haha.

Worst Date Tag

Well, Jenn tagged me with the "worst date ever" tag.

The first story that came to mind, however, wasn't exactly MY date, but it was MY fault. So, I was set up on a date by my aunt/cousin Bobata. When the guy called me to figure out a date and time, I told him that I would be more comfortable if it were a double date and I brought a friend. He said that he would find a friend as well and we set it all up.

The night came and both guys stopped by my apartment to pick us up. They were cute, so it was a plus. We went to dinner, they paid of course, then went to one of their houses to watch a movie. During the middle of the movie my friend's date got up and left. We figured he was going to the bathroom or something. He didn't come back for the longest time, and when he finally did he had another girl with him. haha. So the five of us finished the movie. I didn't know what to make of it. Pretty soon my friend's date left with the other girl, and my date drove us home.

Seriously, I still don't know what they were thinking. Sorry Kendal.

Oh, I just remembered one more. I had been dating a guy for a little while, like 2 or 3 months, and we went to a movie. As we walked past the concessions stand I asked if we could get some milk duds, it was a movie tradition of mine and I love them. This is what he said to me:

"Hanna, if you knew you wanted a treat you should have told me before we got to the theater. The stuff here is too expensive."

Then we walked into the movie.

I was so bothered by it. I stopped hanging out with him. Who knows, maybe I'm just a brat and what he said was totally normal.

I tag...whoever...

Finally Finished

I just finished my last final. So (hoping that I passed all of my classes) I'M DONE! FOREVER! okay, at least for the time being. One day, in the distant future, I would like to go on and do more.

Cody finishes tomorrow morning.

What a glorious feeling.

To add to it, we finally put our Christmas tree up and decorated the house a little. It is our first "married" Christmas and I am REALLY EXCITED for it. I love the holidays, they just make a person feel great.

Anyway, that is the update for now.

There Is Always Room For Firsts

I had two firsts this weekend.

1. I shot a handgun.

I am scared to death of guns, but Cody insists that knowledge is better than fear. I completely agree. My insides trembled every time I pulled the trigger. I had to keep reminding myself, "This is good for me."

2. I watched the movie 'Willow.'

I have heard about this movie for years. I have even quoted lines from it, just because other people always did. Then, this weekend I finally got the incredible opportunity of viewing it first hand. It was great.

What I've Learned

People say that you can never understand something until you live through it. Well, this is my first time being pregnant (as far as I know...) and there were lots of things I couldn't have prepared for, even in the first 3 months.

Now, I realize everyone's body reacts different, but here is a list of pregnancy lessons I have learned:

1. I do NOT react well to extra hormones racing through my body.
2. If I eat all the time I'll get really fat, but I won't be so nauseous. I just have to decide what is more important to me.
3. While normally I am cold all the time, I can barely stand sleeping under the covers because I feel like my body is on fire. How does that even happen?
4. Crackers are not the miracle cure doctors tell you they are. Bread, however, is.
5. Water makes me vomit, or at least come really close, every time I drink it.
6. Sometimes, even though I just ate 2 hours earlier, I feel like my body is going to rot and die from starvation.
7. I get tired around 7:30 instead of my usual 12.
8. I cry. I cried while watching Joe Dirt the other day, at three different parts of the movie.
9. The smell of my laundry detergent makes me want to dry heave. Well, the smell of lots of things makes me dry heave.
10. I have crazy dreams, most of which are about death and horribleness. I'm not sure why.
11. My chest really hurts, especially when its cold outside.
12. I have my mind made up that even though no one else can tell I am getting bigger, I am HUGE.

The last lesson, number 13, is the hardest. Although I haven't seen it personally, its a fear in the back of my mind. That is, nothing is final. A million things have to go right in order for this little creature to be born healthy. I just keep hoping it all does.
