Okay. Here it is. My mormon mom blog.

Jordan suggested the name "Barefoot and Pregnant" because of how he expects me to spend my time now that he is salaried-you know, at home, perpetually pregnant, and baking/cooking something in the kitchen. I don't know how accurate that is going to be, but a man can dream.

The reason why I am starting this blog is the same reason that many mormon moms start their blogs-to keep in touch with all the family and friends that they have across the country, and to update everyone on the state of their offspring.

STATE OF MY OFFSPRING: Kicking mah insides as we speak.

Anyways, since we left Utah at the end of April, Jordan and I have been up to many shananigans and tomfoolery. We went to New York City, where he got to perform with his college comedy group and I got to go to art museums and puke in Times Square. We left New York for Texas, as Jordan was a groomsmen for our friends wedding. We went from Texas to California, where Jordans family lives. It was nice to spend some time with them, and taking a break from wayfaring. From California we went to North Carolina where I got to be a bridesmaid for another friends wedding, and we got to spend some time with my family. We went from North Carolina back to California, where we packed up our car and drove to Wisconsin. The drive was pretty uneventful. I got a speeding ticket in Wyoming...for 7 mph over the speed limit. As is custom, I spent the time we were driving through Nebraska in a grumpy mood. I hate driving through Nebraska. Once arriving in Wisconsin we went to Brat Fest, looked for apartments, and started getting used to our new surroundings. It took us a long time to find an apartment, but we have one now! I got the keys yesterday, and now here are the obligatory new apartment pictures...AND A BELLY SHOT.

ONE LAST THING: I will find out the gender of the my baby as soon as we get all signed up with our new insurance, I find a new doctor, and they look at my innards.
