Easter Sunday

This year for Easter we decided to stay in town and have Easter with Jordan's family instead of going to my Grandmas for Easter.

We began our Easter Sunday by attending the Willow Valley Family ward. We haven't quite decided whether we want to go to the family ward or the married student ward yet, so we gave the family ward a try.

After church we changed our clothes and headed up to Jordan's grandparents house in Preston, Idaho. We had a yummy Easter dinner there and visited with the family. Then, after dinner we went over to Jordan's mom's house for some Easter egg hunting. After we were all done hunting we all opened up our eggs, and I found out that I was the Grand Prize Winner! So, I won a huge easter egg full of every different kind of candy was so much fun!

Later, we went shooting with Jordan's step dad and his family out out the shooting range. We both took our 22's and shot those for a while, then we got to shot some 270's and 223's which kick a lot more than our little 22's but they were still fun to shoot. We both had a blast shooting and bonding with the family.

So, lately I've been feeling a lot like this:

and doing a lot of this:

and eating a lot of these:

and looking at a lot of these:

And reading books like these:

and all of this because I'm going to have one of these:

somewhere around October 29, 2011 :)

I had my first official doctor's appointment on April 12. I got to hear the heartbeat and see it moving and squirming around in my belly, I could hardly believe it! The doctor said that it's just the right size and that it has a good strong heart beat. Jordan was a little bummed that he didn't get to go because he had to work but I told him that he can go to my 20 week appointment when we get to find out whether IT is a he or a she. We are both so excited to be bringing a beautiful baby into the world and to finally be parents :)

The Joys of House Hunting

So, the end of March I was on a website that had a calculator to figure out what your mortgage would be on different houses. I was playing around will it to see if Jordan and I could even afford it when all of the sudden I was asked to enter some information, I did because I figured it wouldn't hurt anything. The next day I received a phone call from a mortgage agency asking if I wanted to come in and get some more information, so I did.
When I first went into the mortgage agency I didn't really think that Jordan and I would even be approved for a home because we're so young and our credit wasn't the best, or so I thought. But, when they pulled up our credit they told us that it was a lot better than I had originally thought :) And that we were pre-approved to buy a house!! I was in complete shock and I was excited beyond belief so I had to call Jordan and give him the good news! We were both so happy! :)
Then, a couple of weeks later a realtor called and asked if we were ready to start looking for a home, of course we both said yes!! We've looked at about 5 houses so far, and we are going to look at some more tomorrow :) But, I never knew how excited and stressful house hunting can be! There are so many things to consider when looking for a house that I had never even thought about! Right now we are trying to decided if we want an older, bigger home that's not as updated, or a small home that is updated, or a town house or a condo. Plus, we don't even know where we want to live yet. So, there's a lot of decisions to make but I'm sure we'll pick the right house for our family and our situation! Wish us Luck! :)
