My waiting area for my salon doesn't really exist anymore
Wednesday, September 17
Things could have been a lot worse, but let me just say that we found a big mess in our basement yesterday. Somehow, in our house that's not even a year old yet, there has been a flood! A real and not so small flood has made our basement go from comfy and not often used by us to me feeling like i am starting all over with this building process. Although now, we actually live in the house upstairs and dust is already starting to invade! I have to say though that i am very lucky it did not affect my home salon, but it's not the prettiest thing to walk in to for my clients!
The water sat since Sunday. (Don't ask me how i didn't notice it on Monday, but i guess with shoes on and it being a little dry already, i just didn't notice)
So now, all the carpet is gone, base boards are off and dry wall is off about half way up the wall. Yep, it looks like we are starting over! It seriously is such a mess and i can't believe it. I just have to keep telling myself that it could be worse! It could have afftected my salon and i would have some unhappy clients and it could have happened when i was a lot further along and many other things that could make it worse!
So-that's it-I just had to vent about it for a minute-i already feel a little better :)
I'll get some pictures up later for you all to see.

I was tagged to do the husband tag, so what better time for me to do it than now?.......
1- Where did you meet? Skylar and I met in high school. We kind of just hung out with the same group of friends and it all started there.
2- How long did you date before you were married? We dated for about 4 years before we were married
3- How long have you been married for? 4 and a 1/2 years
4- What does he do that surprises you? He acts really goofy when we are together and he loves to make me laugh. Most people don't know that side of him, but i know the real Skylar!
5- What's your favorite feature about him? I love everything about him, but i especially love his eyes and i love how tall he is!
6- What's your favorite quality about him? He is a very honest person. He is very good with people and good at what he does. He works very hard.
7- Does he have a nickname for you? We just both call eachother babe all the time, in fact when he calls me Traci it seems really wierd
8- What's his favorite color? I would say blue, but then again, i don't really know, he likes every color
9- What's his favorite food? I would have to say spaghetti, but not just any spaghetti, but the way his mom makes it.
10-What is his favorite sport? Golf in the summer and basketball any other time of the year
11- Who said I love you first? ya know, it was so long ago, i don'e reameber the exact first time we said we loved eachother. I'm pretty sure he said it first though, i was pretty shy!

15- What's a hidden talent that he has? ya, i will have to think about that one, he always knows how to make up with me when we are fighting, even if i want to be mad, he can come make me laugh and it breaks the ice.

I tag my sisters. Erika, Lisa, Kelli and Marci.

We are so excited! I must say that she was very cooperative and gave us a perfect shot to be able to tell what she was. The tech was 100% positive this baby is a girl. It was so fun to watch her move around in there and to realize it's for real! This little one is going to have her daddy wrapped around her finger! We are both extatic and can't wait for her grand entrance in Feb.
Here she is in a full body side profile!
and here she is giving us that perfect shot so there is no question what she is! We can start to shower her in all the pink girly stuff!
We are so excited for our little Ashlyn to come!

Today i did not work because i got a notice on my door from midway saying that the water was going to be turned off today, so i called all my appts today and rescheduled them. I had the day to get things done, so what do i do? NOTHING! I cleaned up my house a little, but i did not really accomplish a whole lot. I was able to go to lunch with my mom and niece, Ella and that was good!
I am finally beginning to look a little more pregnant than fat! I feel like people still can't tell that there is a baby in there! They must just think that i had a little too much to eat for lunch:)
Skylar and i can not wait for Monday to come! We are going to find out what we are having! I will be just over 16 weeks. I will make sure to update when we find out what the gender is!
My sister Kelli had her twins yesterday and i have not been able to see them, but have heard how very different they look and also how different their little personalities are! She did great and was able to have them both vaginally and that is amazing! Dean was 5 lbs. 13 oz and Elizae (not sure how to spell it) was 5 lbs. 2 oz. SO GOOD JOB KEL!!! You are a great mom!

We have not done any true vacationing, but have had some fun little weekend trips. It was so great to have my sister erika and her little family here from Alaska, but they are gone now and it's sad:(
Since i last posted, i have had a niece born to my brother Ryan and Marci. They named her sophie. And i had a nephew born, Keegan, to Skylar's little sister Kelsie. Babies are so precious, but they grow too fast! My sister Kelli is about ready to pop being pregnant with twins. She looks so great though! I can't believe that she has 2 babies in her belly.
I am doing well in my pregnancy. I am 14 weeks along tomorrow and things seem to be going well. I have a dr. appointment tomorrow and i can't wait to hear the heartbeat again! Sickness is still lingering around, but my magic pills (Zofran) has been just that, MAGIC! They make me feel so much better and i feel really lucky that i was able to take them.
We went to lava hot springs in idaho for a family reunion last weekend and had a lot of fun floating down the river.
I can't think of anything else for now, but now you are all caught up, kind of.
MY cute niece Addi Guymon and I on the 4th of July

I wish i would have taken a picture of this, but we went over to my mom and dads house that night and watched a movie outside with a projector and then slept out there. It was so much fun, but so COLD!
I got some awesome gifts! First off, Skylar got me some awesome chairs for my sitting area just outside my salon and i love them!
i got some clothes, and skylar walked in that morning from work with like 15 balloons and a dozen red roses with one yellow rose. He wrote the sweetest card, too cute to not post.
and then at the bottom of the card it said P.S. have fun at the concert! and he whipped these out
Carrie underwood tickets! How fun! I was so surprised! I will be quite pregnant by then, but we will have so much fun! It is November 19! I can't wait to go!
Then his parents stopped by and brought some awesome cakes! Yes, i said cakes. My father in law was in charge of ordering them and got 3! They were so pretty and yummy, but i forgot to take a picture of them:( They also brought my present from them and i love them! There is a theme to this birthday....CHAIRS! I got some chairs for our front patio and they look perfect! My mother in law has great taste!
Thank you to all who made it a great day!

We started out by doing nothing friday night which i guess i should feel lucky that we can sit around and not worry about anything. AT least that's what people with kids always tell me. "Enjoy it while you can!" So that's what we did. Then Saturday we bummed around then finally decided on a plan. Kelsie (Skylar's sister) and i were craving cafe rio (what's new), kelsie saw a dog on ksl that she really wanted and skylar has been looking at bullet bikes on ksl for the last week religiously every day searching. So, there was one on there that i actually saw first and showed it to him and neither of us could stop thinking about it. You have to understand that in the last year we have gone through 3 different bikes, and with the weather warming up skylar could not get his mind off of getting a new one. So, we all decided to go together to Provo/ Salt Lake to look at least and think about it. Well, once we saw the dog, there was no thinking about it. He is so stinking cute and such a good puppy! It makes me want one really bad, but i know that not all puppys are like that! Here he is-his name is Hurley
