A bun in the oven!

When our littlest, Sofia, was born in 2008 she was the third of 3 kids three and under.
We had to slow down on the baby-making in order to keep our sanity.
We said we'd wait five years before having any more kids, because five years seems like an impossibly long amount of time when you have a newborn, a 2 year old, and a 3 year old.
But, 5 years actually flies right by.
Coming into 2013 I was getting super baby hungry...Jeremy on the other hand, not so much.
But, he knows that the amount of kids that the wife wants is the amount of kids a family should probably have ;)
So, it's official!  We have a bun in the oven due November 3, 2013!
The kids are over-the-moon excited:)
Daddy is excited, too, I think;) (despite all of the "what were we thinking?!" statements)
We find out in June if it's a boy or a girl.
Feeling a bit of pressure to make a boy (for grandpa's sake) but we're just hoping for a healthy baby!
This baby will be very loved by his/her 3 big sisters!
She's been asking for a baby brother or sister for well over a year...well, all of her wildest dreams are about to come true!
I really wanted a giraffe but mommy got me a baby instead!

I really wanted a PUPPY but mommy got me a baby instead!
This isn't to say that Daddy didn't have anything to do with it;) (though he is currently blaming it on the milkman...)
Love you, Little Baby!!  We're all so excited to meet you!! :)

A Killer weekend in Vegas

I think 2012 pretty much rocked.
And the very end of 2012 was no different.
Jeremy and I went to Vegas for the weekend between Christmas and New Years.
(which also happened to be our 11th wedding anniversary! eeee!)
We had plans to see The Killers on Saturday but we ended up seeing them on Friday AND Saturday,
which was AMAZING!  I even got to meet Ronnie Vannucci on Friday night (eeee!)
Seeing my favorite band with my favorite person in the whole wide world couldn't get any better!
We were able to get right up in the front for both concerts and the second go around we brought the good camera, which also takes amazing video.  So now I'll forever remember our amazing fun time on our weekend getaway to Vegas.
There are so many fun memories from this weekend most of which i cannot post about...what happens in vegas, stays in vegas!
Driving 8 hours to Vegas isn't so bad when you have a hottie like this at the wheel!

Making our Mark on 12-12-12

Ya know how it is sometimes ya just want to make your mark on these historical dates somehow.
Like get married that day.
Or have a baby right as the clock strikes 12:12.
I mean, it won't happen again for 100 years right?
So, we just had to make our mark on 12-12-12
 Sofia bumped her head at grandma's house and got a nice, big, gaping wound out of it.
 She felt a lot better after some lidocaine and a nurse gave her some stickers. score!
 During the stitching up process, she konked out... softly snoring while the Dr. did her handy work.
The stitched are right on the eyebrow and with any lucky won't be too noticeable in the future.

The Dr. and nurse were very impressed with Sofia.  The Dr. had previously worked in New York, and said she had to stitch up some pretty tough guys in the past, but they always turned into blubbering fools when it came to getting the numbing shots.  But, not Sofia, she's a pro when it comes to dealing with pain.  She's the one who stepped on a screw and smiled while getting her tetanus shot.  She has taught her wussy older sisters a thing or two about getting a flu shot whilst still maintaining your dignity, and dry eyes.  She's amazing like a chumbawumba song.  She'll get knocked down, but she'll get up again. You're never gonna keep her down.

We all felt so bad for her we spoiled her and gave her a few Christmas presents early.
Poor girl.
She's feeling a lot better though now, but her eye is starting to swell shut and it's turning purple.
Oh well, it was worth it for the new Webkinz.
And to be able to say that she got 12 stitches on 12-12-12.
She made her mark.

Back to School

Oh my freakin goodness.
I can't believe Swede is old enough to be in 3rd grade.

Ingrid and Swede headed back to school yesterday.
The girls of course are all excited about their new clothes...
But, I'm not too excited about the fight to wake them up and make them do their homework.

Sofia who is stuck here at home with mom until preschool starts next month
came up to me literally 5 times before noon and asked if it was time to pick up the girls from school...
"time to get mah sistahs at da school?"
 These little cuties will be missed!

Aww, Tetons you're so purty

This is the post where you get to see me look like a crazy woman because sharing a 4 bedroom 3 bathroom condo with 17 people can get a teensy bit hectic & I possible may have only showered 3 times in the last week.  at least, that'll be my excuse.

Truth is, when the Tetons are right outside your door, doing your hair all fancy shmancy and putting on makeup is the last thing on your mind.  Unless you're a teenager girl (which we had 3 of with us) then all that stuff is actually the 2nd thing on your mind second only to #1 boys.
This morning was my first morning back at the gym  in over a week & i felt like i was going to die.  I guess that's what you get for eating twinkies and pringles for a week straight.

I did get a little exercise on our trip.  Jeremy took Swede and I on a morning hike overlooking the Tetons.  & we did paddle a canoe for 2 days straight.  But that came to a screeching halt when Jeremy tweaked is back (bad!) while putting the canoe back on top of the car.  So, we had 2 full days of running around, swimming in String Lake and having fun, and then 4 days of taking it easy, driving around a lot looking for animals, watching Jim Gaffigan on Netflix & a quick trip up to yellowstone to look at a few hot pots.  ya know, those pretty, stinky pots of boiling water...can't get enough of them ;)

The paddle boards we rented were a highlight of our week.  Not necessarily because they were super fun, but because of the uncoordinated-ness of us Winborgs.  It's hilarious watching a 70 year old man fall off a paddle board repeatedly...and a 40 year old woman, and another 40-something year old woman...and myself.  hilarious. every. time.
i have video, too. dare i post it??

I hope your week was fabulous, too!
and fyi, the winner of the $50 Shabby Apple gift card giveaway is Beth @ Through the Eyes of the Mrs.,
congrats, i'm jealous!
