Just Bored

I am laying in bed right now and I can not get up. I have back and stomach cramps and just have to lay in bed with my legs up till tomorrow. So, I decided that I will do a fun entry instead of me complaining. So, I figured I'd do want my dear best friend did last month.

Pick 20 random people of your friends that you know personally (i.e. have actually met in person). Type them out first BEFORE reading any of the questions, then answer the questions accordingly.

Don't definitely ruins it!

1. Samantha
2. Frema
3. Matt
4. Dan
5. Luke
6. Ryan
7. Matthew Jr.
8. Geo
9. Donna
19.Number Twelve

-What would you do if you had never met #5?
Luke. Well, that would mean that Frema and him would have never met because I have known her since I was born and I meet every guy that she was with. Especially her soon to be wonderful husband.

-What do you honestly think of #10?
A royal pain in the ass. But, aren't all older brothers?

-Would/did #19 and #8 go out?
Number Twelve and Geo. I do not think that she would go out with Frema and Samantha's little brother. Plus, she is happily married with three beautiful children.

-Did you ever like #3?
I would hope so, I married him.

-If #1 died tomorrow, what is the one thing that you would need him/her to know?
That she is more of a sister to me then a cousin and my best friend.

-Would #2 and #11 make a good couple?
Frema and Rebecca. Hmmm what do you think?

-Describe #7 in three words:
cute, adorable and lovable

-Do you think #12 is hot?
He is a cutie

-Would #1 and #17 make a good couple?
Samantha and Brad. I do not think that Samantha and my brother-in-law would make a good couple. They are both married for one and they are just too different.

-What do you think of when you see # 8?
When did he get so big?!

-Do you know any of #6 family?
I know all of them!

-What's #20's favorite color?
I really do not know my nephews favorite color. I am a bad Aunt.

-On a scale of 1-10 how cute is #14?
I would have to say that Steve is about a 7 because he does look like his brother, my husband. But, my husband is a 10 :o)

-What would you do if #4 just professed his/her undying love for you?
That would worry me because that is my best friends husband.

-Who is #16 going out with?
My sister-in-law is not going out with anyone right now. I actually do not know if she has ever gone out with anyone.

-Is #9 a boy or a girl?

-Would #18 and #4 make a good couple?
Chris and Dan. What is this thing trying to do? They want Samantha & Dan and Chris & Brad to break up and go out with each other.

-Who do you think #15 would be great with from this list?
Jim. My other brother-in-law would not be great with anyone from this list. I do not know who he would be great with out of anyone I know.

-When was the last time you talked to #12?
Christmas day

-What is #3's favorite band?
My husbands favorite band is A New Found Glory

-Does #2 have any siblings?
Yeap, four of them.

-Would you ever date #6?
Ryan is beautiful but I think that would be wrong on so many levels.

-Would you ever date #15?

-Is #7 single?
I would hope my little baby is still single.

-What is #20's last name?

-What is #1's middle name?

-Where does #9 live?
Chi Town

-Would you make out with #13?
I do not think that I would ever make out with my brothers wife!

-Are #5 and #6 best friends?
Luke and Ryan are probably not best friends, but they better be at least friends they are future in-laws.

-Does #7 like #20?
My baby does like his cousin.

-How did you meet #18?
This is actually kind of funny. I have never meet Number twelve but I will meet her at Frema and Lukes wedding. We're blog buddies.

-Is #12 older than you?

-Is #17 the sexist person alive?
My sister-in-law probably thinks that he is.

-Have you hooked up with more than three people on this list?
Actually no.

That was kind of fun! I hope you guys enjoy it.

X-Mas Card Pictures

This was a tough task for us to do because Matthew is a big ham in person but as soon as you pull out the camera he gets all shy and does not want to smile or stay in one place long enough to get just a serious picture of him. Well this picture above was the most serious picture we could take. I thought that this picture was good enough to send out. But, my husband was not satisfied. So, we continued on snapping pictures and trying to get a good picture. That is when we got our next picture.

This was my husbands favorite picture he said that this was our Christmas card this year. So, of course I gave in and let this be our card. But, I did get a couple copies of the first picture to send out to the Aunties who have never seen him before and to Matt's boss. I did not want people who have never seen him before think that he was crossed eyed! Hope you enjoyed my silly baby.

I know that it has been a while since I blogged but I am just not in the mood to do anything. I didn't even put a Christmas tree up this year. I barely got my Christmas cards out. I still have to wrap the rest of my Christmas presents and pick up a few more. I just can't do it this year. This pregnacy is just taking everything out of me. I can not do anything for more then a few minutes without having to sit down and relax. Hopefully this will end soon because I am sick of being a bum and not being able to do anything. I feel like quitting work because it is just too much for me. I only work no more then 12 hours a week. Which is nothing. So, until I start feeling better and being able to do something for more then ten minutes without getting tired my entries are probably going to be a little spaced apart.

Some good news is that when I went to the doctors on Thursday I lost 4 1/2lbs! The baby is doing really good. The heartbeat is very strong, which is good because I was a little worried. I was afraid that the baby would have been a little stressed out because of all the puking I have been doing. Plus, I bleed a little bit last week, so I was relieved that everything was fine. Well, I am going to go and lay down for a while.

I am Drug Free and Have a Girls Name

I took my last antibiotic pill yesterday and I'm feeling pretty good. Matt still has a pretty bad cough and my Mom is just very tired still.

Well, since Matt has been off of work all week because of our sickness we got to spend a lot of time together and were able to talk. We were talking about babies names and we're still set on Michael Allan for a boy. So, we were throwing a lot of different names out there and we settled on a few. Two of the runner ups we're Katherine and Paige, middle name for both would have been Elizabeth. After a lot of talking and placing the name with our last name and thinking of family names the winner is.....Emma Elizabeth. Her initials will be EEB. I never realized how hard it is to pick out a girls name. Last pregnancy we picked out a girls name 123, this time it was opposite we picked the boys name out 123 and had a problem with a girls name. But, I am happy with our choices and will have to wait till summer to see if there will be a new baby Michael or Emma in our family.
