2 blogs in one day, you guys are getting spoiled. haha.
I'm bored at work, slow season is upon us and I am taking full advantage now because in the next 2 weeks we will hit a fever pitch when I won't even be able to take a lunch break.
In any case, I wanted to write about something we girls at my office have been talking about a lot lately. The List. I hope some of you know what this is without my explanation but I definitely did not when it was explained to me. Essentially The List is a group of celebrities that your spouse or significant other knows you would like to get it on with (and in most cases they have their own list). The premise of the list is that if you came across these celebrities in real life it would be like a get out of jail free card if you did indeed hook up. I guess the probability of it happening are so slim that most people are cool with the list. I knew Tom had women that he would definitely want to be with if he had the chance, I just did not know this was a widely known phenemonen(sp).
In any case I have been asking just about everyone I meet who is on their list and how many it is. I made Tom choose only 5 because I think that's enough but I guess in general most people have 10 and one group I asked had 25! I had a hard time even coming up with 25. So The List can be any type of celebrity- athlete, musician, actor, etc. But they have to be a celebrity, can't just be Joe Schmoe down the block because that crosses into scary territory because that could definitely come to fruition and would be BAD.
So I will post my 10(I had a hard time with 10, I came with up a solid 6 and had to search for a few more.) I'm dying to know who everyone else has on their list!!
1. Ian Somerhalder
Truth be told, I love vampires, I would not complain if he bit me! Look at those eyes
2. Jesse Williams
OK so I have a thing for creepy eyes. His are like unreal! Look at the freckles
3. Penn Badgley
So he is good looking but in a kinda dorky way and I think he would totally be the fun kind of guy to hang out with. Smart, kinda nerdy but would be fun!
4. Ed Westwick
Truth be told I also have a thing for guys who look like they might be bad asses. I don't know if my love for him stems from his bad boy personality on Gossip Girl or not but he also has a wicked accent- major points!
5. Shia LaBeouf
Another bad boy. Look at the smirk. He looks like the type to beat someone up and then come and kiss you right on the mouth. Yes PLEASE!!
6. Chace Crawford
He has typical good looks and that's what I love. Blonde hair, light eyes, how can you not love that? Plus his hair is always messed up and it looks like he had a rough night in bed!
7. Ryan Gosling
So he is not really my type perse. He's good looking, no doubt about that but I can not think of the movie The Notebook without getting hot and bothered. He was so rough but sweet in that movie, yummo!
8. Kellan Lutz
Ok so this pic speaks for itself. Hello abs!
9. Cam Gigandet
Again he looks like a bad boy. He has that smirk that could probably talk me into just about anything.
10. Robert Downey Jr.
Ok so he is definitely a little older than me and my normal age range but you can not deny that he has something about him. He's mega goodlooking, funny and he has a troubled past which makes you see that he is human. I love him!
Ok ladies, there's my list. I hope you guys can come up with a few and share them with me. This was fun to do with my girls at work because it definitely exposed me to some different tastes!

Hope your new year is off to a fantastic start. I know mine is! Tom and I have just been spending more and more time together. I know the time we have left as just the two of us is numbered so we have been trying to squeeze in as much time together as we can. It helps when he works days like he did this week. Next week I'll be on my own while he works nights. It's all for the baby though, he makes more money working nights so I can't blame him. It just doesn't make my night any fun when it's just me and the puppers.
Last weekend we had every intention of starting the baby registry. We went out and had a nice lunch that turned out to not be so nice. It made me so sick that we didn't last more than 15 minutes in Babies R Us. We did spend time looking at car seats and strollers and now have research to do online as far as picking what will be best for our needs. I know there are a million to choose from so I have been asking around about whether to get a travel system or just do separate strollers and car seats. So far the concensus has been to do the 2 separate since the baby will grow out of the car seats pretty fast before they graduate to sitting properly in a stroller. Who knows, I will probably change my mind 7 more times anyway. In any case we will get around to the registry eventually. I know I can do a lot of it online which is nice since the store can be overwhelming. We literally walked around shaking our heads thinking "man we don't know what newborns need". It's funny but something I'm sure a lot of first time parents go through.
Our New Year's Eve was pretty dull. We did our grocery shopping early in the day and then lounged around watching movies. I got Tom sushi for dinner since it's his favorite and I owed him a special anniversary dinner. I laid in bed reading for awhile and eventually passed out at like 10:30 pm completely missing the ball drop. Tom stayed up but didn't watch the ball drop either. It was a pretty lame night overall but I'm not complaining. New Year's Day was spent eating traditional sour kraut and pork(any other PA Dutch out there no what I'm talking about?). Our weekends have been pretty low key which is nice, it gives me time to take naps and catch up on the sleep that I miss out on at night.
The big changes that are coming start this weekend. We are starting the slew of house updates that need finished before the baby comes this weekend. We have to paint the nursery, basement, and kitchen. They are already painted but not how I envisioned so it's time to change them. We also are going to pick out flooring so we can rip up the carpets sooner than later(I will be out of town for the floor demo thank goodness). These are all things that we have been putting off for a solid year now and we realize that these next 7 months will fly by so it's now or never. Tom isn't all that thrilled because he HATES painting but he knows it's necessary so he will do it. The other big change is kicking the puppies out of our bed. They are making it even harder for me to get a good nights sleep and we don't want them in there once the baby comes anyway so it's time to wean them. We are buying them heated beds of their own so that they are comfortable and we are going to try and leave them in our room but they might have to be locked downstairs for awhile to keep them from whining or jumping up. It's hard and I love my little guys in bed with me but it's just too much especially when I wake up half out of the bed because the dog is lying perpendicular between Tom and I on my pillow! I don't think so!
Hmm, what else is going on? I think that's about it for now. There are no belly shots yet mainly because I think I just look chubby and not pregnant. Tom has been taking a weekly picture so we can track it but I'm not ready to share yet.
I am including the big announcement pictures in this post. Like I said not the greatest pics but the thought was there. Maybe next baby! haha
First this was the dummy pic
and this was the surprise pic- notice that pap is completely cut out!
and a totally random picture of a nursery that I think is gender neutral, what do you think?
