We are seriously so excited to announce that Ashlyn is expecting a baby coming August 3rd!! We had always talked about being pregnant together and it actually happened! We are about 5 months apart from each other, and it is so fun to be able to share this experience together especially since it is the first for both of us, not to mention all the pregnancy cravings we will be able to eat together now! ;)
One of our biggest weaknesses lately have been sweets! Anything with lots and lots of sugar is something we just can't resist. Anyone else obsessed with cupcake wars on the food network channel?? Okay, well every time we watch that show together we get the biggest sweet tooth and have to have a cupcake at that moment! Luckily we live fairly close to the Sweet Tooth Fairy cupcake shop in downtown Provo so we headed down there and had ourselves a delicious cupcake!
Ashlyn here- I seriously had no idea what to expect getting pregnant. I just thought I would get pregnant (actually not that easily) and boom, all fun and games. But I really got hit with a rude awakening. I am 13 weeks now, but for the last 8 weeks I have been super sick. I spent a whole week in bed, due to nausea. I had no idea that this was what a lot of women went through! I don't know if I just had it worse or was more of a wimp, but it really took a toll on me. I had no energy to get out of bed and do simple tasks around the house or running errands. Eating made me throw up and even my prenatal pill was hard to keep down. Just making food was to painful to do, so I ended up losing more than 10 pounds during that time. Now that I am just getting over my first trimester, it has really settled down. The waves of sickness come and go, and I still don't have much of an appetite, but I am so grateful that I can do more normal things.
Currently I have had a cold for the past 2 1/2-3 weeks. My doctor said I am fine taking Tylenol Cold medicine, but it still makes me a bit nervous. Any advice on what to take when your sick during pregnancy?? Or holistic remedies? My sister told me about peppermint and oregano oil. All things aside I am soooo grateful and excited to be pregnant! It is such a blessing! We can't believe that we are pregnant together too. We would have never thought!!
Thanks for reading guys! Any information or advice is so appreciated!!

So at last, it is 2017! I don't know about you guys but we are so happy to have the holidays over. Don't get me wrong, I love celebrating Christmas and New Years but there is just a nice breath of fresh air that comes with having it all done! Plus, I was sick for the last 2 weeks so that wasn't to fun!
We both got some great gifts, and loved watching our friends and family open our gifts too. That is probably the best part, watching their smiles when they open your gift.
Watches are one of those gifts that is expensive but also hard to choose a style for someone. So I decided to gift myself with this Armitron watch because it is sleek, chic and affordable! I have friends who will spend hundreds and even thousands on watches, that...to be honest...aren't that cute. I love Armitron because they have many styles and are affordablw. I got a fitess watch they I always wear to the gym and it is water proof! Its great for timing my ab workouts, swimming and keeping track on the treadmill. I also got a fashion watch that has white leather and is so versatile. You can check out these super cute and affordable watches here.
We hope you guys had a safe and great holiday vacation! Enjoy the beginning of the new year!!
