I haven't posted an update for a while, I've been a little busy and I just wanted to post a quick update. I should be in bed, I'm tired!! I've started working at Deseret Industries in AF, back in the clothing processing. I either inspect the clothes that get donated (i.e. holes? stains? out of style? lol) or I hang up the ones that pass the inspection test. I really enjoy working there, I work with good people, it's a great place and I feel like it's a big service project. We have a devotional every morning, which really gets the day off to a good start, I love it.
So tomorrow, I have to go to another prenatal appt. and this time, they're having me take a glucose test! Hence, the subject line - yummy...sugar! I have to drink this sugary drink within a 1o minute time period and then be at the doctors 45 minutes later so they can test my blood. Everyone I've talked to about this portion of my pregnancy exams say, "it's really sweet!! Like pure sugar!" and one girl at work said, "It makes you kind of....loopy, be careful driving to the doctors!" hehehe. Fun huh!
I can't believe it's getting so close now to having my own little baby girl around, I'm so excited! It's funny, when I am sitting in church and I have my arm resting across my belly, she'll start kicking and kicking at it. Last week, I watched my arm move up and down, I almost laughed out loud, it was so dang cute!! She's probably in there going, "Would you move?! I need some space!" I have news for her - it's going to get a lot more cramped in there before long. She does a lot of moving and it's sure fun! I love it! I feel like I'm getting a little anxious for her to come out though. But soon enough. Anyway...I think that's all for now. I'm 27 weeks today! Goodnight everyone! Love ya all! Stacey

This is for you, Nastia Liukin!

Chinese gymnasts win another gold
BEIJING - "China's He Kexin won a tiebreaker over all-around champion Nastia Liukin of the United States for the uneven bars gold medal Monday at the Beijing Olympics."

Did you watch the olympics on Monday night? They were having the women's gymnastics on the uneven bars, and I've loved to watch Nastia perform, she's good! But there was a tie breaker between her and a little Chinese girl, He Kexin, I thought they were both good, but everyone thought that Nastia's routine was just a bit more smooth. I don't know, I'm not a judge, but poor Nastia ended up getting a silver medal over that tiebreaker and I felt so bad for her, you could see the disappointment in her face the rest of the night. In my opinion, they both should have gotten the gold for having a tied score. In the past, they've given double medals for ties, but the rules have changed.

So, here's a gold medal for you, Nastia! I still think you're great!

I love to see the temple!

I was able to go to the Jordan River Temple with my cousin, Mercedes, who went for the first time, and I just have to say I love it! I felt all "warm and tingly", it's so peaceful and beautiful in the temple, I could spend forever in there just clinging to the spirit! I'm so grateful for the gospel in my life, I don't know where I would be without it. I'm grateful for 'Eternal Families' and every blessing the gospel brings. I just wanted to share that. I took this picture of the temple with my cellphone camera and I must say...not too bad!! It's so pretty, and the sky was a perfect bunch of clouds and colors to capture the image!

Summer's almost over...

Isn't that sad?!
Well, I think so anyway! I love Summer and it's coming to an end! But I suppose with the end of one season, another one comes along, and who knows what surprises are in store. I'm just one of those people that don't like things to change. (Much.) I know, change is necessary. I always get a little sad when Summer is over. Summer is my favorite time of year, I love it, even though it's hot and miserable some days. I could live with Summer weather all year long. Where my husband is from (Trujillo Peru) he says it is 70's and 80's all year 'round. Now THAT'S what I'm talking about! I told him we need to move there. His family lives by the BEACH!! I'm not sure how close, but living anywhere close to a beach, mm-hmm! I love beaches!
I hope everyone has had a good Summer! It hasn't been too bad. And even though it's about over, I am looking forward to having my baby girl in November, it's getting closer! She moves mostly at night, the silly thing. The other night, I felt more than just one move, it was like a series of moves all at once, like waves or bumps, and I thought, "What are you doing in there?!" hehe. Silly baby. I can't wait to welcome her into our family and see what she'll look like! Have a great day everyone!
Oh, one more thing - I was looking for my crying faces at the top of this post and I came across this FUNNY website, I had to share it, I laughed. Read the description of the item, it's funny. Enjoy!
