Things that make you go Hmmmmmm......

THINGS ON MY MIND TODAY

Tonight I am parking myself on the couch because it is the Big Brother 10 finale - I'm pulling for Dan all the way. (if you watch - you recognize this shirt worn pretty much EVERY day!)
And then..............................Biggest Loser!!!! I can't wait!!!!! If you watch - who is your favorite trainer? I LOVE Bob!!!!! (and his last name is Harper - ha!) I just adore him!



Scott is a HUGE cowboys fan and I'm not big on the NFL but if I was - I would claim the BOYS and I was THRILLED last night to see my boy - Felix Jones - former Razorback - run a 98 yard kick off return touchdown. Way to go Felix!!!!! Boy do we miss you and Dmac this year.

And finally - tomorrow morning I go in for the old Glucose Test. I hear all these horrible things about it but Laurie said it tastes like koolaid with extra sugar and I told her I might just ask for a extra bottle to go because that sounds pretty good. I'm not going to eat from about 8 tonight until after the test so I may be chewing off my fingers by the time it is finished because I can not seem to inhale enough food these days! I just hope I pass!

I hope the test went well...those are not too bad for most people I think! I actually had gestational diabetes with both pregnancies so while that day was not horrible in itself it was the day that my Dr. said I had to stop eating sugar :( That is hard when you are pregnant and like you said, so hungry!!

Jennifer said...

I'm the weirdo who liked the drink because it tasted like orange soda to me!!

I'm sad you aren't going to the OBU thing tonight!! We are mainly going because it is at the home of a couple in our Sunday morning small group. We didn't even know they went to OBU until we got that in the mail.

Whitney said...

I'm pulling for Dan, too even though Memphis is from my city of (duh!) Memphis.
I just think Dan is a waaaay smarter player!

KellyB said...

The test is not too bad....hang in there :)

Allikaye's Mama said...

Ha! I recognized that shirt right away! I am going for Dan too..we'll have to see! And I am with all the other girls...the test isn't so bad! Just one more step in the process of sweet Harper!!

Nikki said...

I hope your test goes well...it really isn't bad.

I'm pretty excited about biggest loser tonight too. I like Jillian.

Sarah B. said...

Go Dan! How can you not love that guy?

Jessica said...

Oh sister... the glucose test is not really that bad.. if you pass.. The three hour one was really horrible. I had to take it at Willow Creek. I will say a prayer you pass it. : )

The Garners said...

I'm cheering for Dan, too--he's played a great game. And Bob is my FAVORITE trainer--I wish he worked at our gym and I could train with him! Isn't he from TN?

I didn't think the glucose test was bad. Hope you pass!

Staci said...

Woo-hoo! Go Dan! I'm a HUGE BB fan, too. Dan has played an excellent game!!

Cindy said...

Go Dan Go!!!!
The glucose test isn't that bad. It's like WAY sweet orange soda.

Danielle said...

The drink tastes like a very sugary sunkist. It's much better when it's chilled. Have crackers with you because after I had all that sugar in my system I was a little jittery. Good luck. I love the name Harper by the way.

Just Terrific said...

My daughter, who is 30 weeks pregnant AND a very picky eater, had that Glucose Test 2 weeks ago. She said that it wasn't that bad. Usually, she stresses about food items that are not on her typical list to eat. I love seeing how her baby boy is making her so determined and protective. It's that "Mama Thing". Makes me proud =)

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

I love Bob, too, and am so excited for the show to start!

Girl, I worred SO much about the glucose test, because of some stuff my friends had told me. I was afraid I would be throwing up and not be able to get it down...and it was delicious! Just like Orange Sunkist. :) You'll do just fine!

Heather said...

I don't think you will want extra! The tough thing is having to drink it in like 10-15 minutes! You will do great, though!
I can't WAIT for Biggest Loser! Also- we shouted and cheered and jumped up and down when Felix returned that kickoff for a touch down~! He had a GREAT game!

Fran said...

Girl...I screamed for Felix like he was my own flesh and blood!!!

Happy Glucosing! ;)
Hugs,
Fran

Tiffany said...

Hi Kelly,
LOVE YOUR BLOG!!! So excited for you that you are having a healthy little girl. The glucose test is not bad at all. It really isn't. Totally overrated. I think the stuff they make you drink tastes like Sunkist orange soda with extra sugar in it. I thought it was good... :). It certainly didn't stop me from having kids...I have three :). Have a wonderful week! Bring a good book or some magazines to the test for the "waiting" period.
Love,
Tiffany

Hailey said...

Good luck on the glucose test tomorrow. I had the orange flavored glucola. It tastes like flat Sunkist to me. Nasty... but who knows you may like it. The worst part is not being able to eat. That is what makes you feel so sick. Anyway, good luck!
Hailey

Megan said...

I had no idea you were a fellow Big Brother fan!!! I'm thinking Dan will win. Memphis just kind of coasted the whole time. Its been a great season!

Megan L Hutchings said...

I absolutely thought of all of my AR friends last night when Felix ran back for a TD ;)!

Also, I think I am going to watch the Biggest Loser tonight ;)!

Amy (Metz) Walker said...

It does taste like extra-thick, extra syrupy koolaid. I've had to do it twice and it's WAY better if you just down it without stopping and get it over with! Good luck...and make sure to treat yourself to something special afterward!

Brandi said...

I love reading your blog! You are adorable! Congrats on having a little girl! I hope to get pregnant next year and our family is pulling for a girl! HA they say there are enough boys for now! My husband has 3 nephews on his side and no babies on my side.

I LOVE The Biggest Loser! Bob is my favorite trainer as well! He seems like such a nice guy! Bring on the tears! I always cry watching this show!

Stephanie said...

I love Big Brother too.......I kinda hope Dan wins as well. Memphis already won the car!!

And don't worry at all about the Glucose test.....as long as the stuff you drink is really cold, it's not that bad. I was so thirsty when I took my test that I inhaled it in a minute!!! I was always EXTREMELY thirsty when I was preggo!! Good luck with it!!

Jennifer said...

Kelly,
Best of luck tomorrow with the glucose test. If you can drink it really fast, it will be just fine!!!!!! I had to do the test 2 times and I have to tell you that the ORANGE DRINK is the best! Please keep us posted.

Lianna Knight said...

I agree...I'm a Dan-fan too :) Is clever or WHAT??? Unfortunately, I'm not watching it tonight...I'm saving it on my DVR, so I'll have to catch it tomorrow....AND I'll have to avoid the radio and the tv all day tomorrow until I've had a chance to see who the winner is :)

Lu said...

People say awful things about the Glucose test drink, but I don't mind it... kinda like orange soda. I'm sure you'll do fine and after both of mine, I've pulled through the drive thru of McDonalds. I was starving. Not sure how I found your blog, but have enjoyed reading it!

Amy Anderson said...

okay. kelly. this is my first time commenting even though i've read your blog for a while... i just HAD to after i totally recognized that shirt!! i generally don't talk about my love for big brother because it is such a time commitment (3 nights a week is TOUGH!) that people who don't watch just don't understand. and tonight i had such a dilemma because i won't be home while BB or the Biggest Loser are on, and I had to choose which to DVR. stress! good thing all BB episodes are online. love technology!

i have so enjoyed reading your journey to Harper. you are going to be a great mom and i hope that whenever my husband and i start that journey together we can cherish it as much as you do! have a great night!

Kelley In Arkansas said...

Kelly,

Did you ever drink Tang as a kid? That is what the glucose test reminded me of 2 and 1/2 years ago.
It is not so bad.

Honea Household said...

The glucose test...the drink really isn't bad. I actually kinda liked it. They let me bring mine home and I put it in the refrigerator to drink first thing in the morning. It's much better cold. It tasted like Sunkist but just a little sweeter. Mine was a little carbonated, that's why it reminded me of Sunkist. Good luck!!!

Tracy said...

I had heard horrible things about the drink also and then thought maybe I was weird for not thinking it was bad. Good to see other people think the same thing.

Love the Biggest Loser also. Bob has been my favorite trainer but there are things I like about Jillian at times-but she scares me!

Jacquie said...

Since we're watching all the same things tonight... I'll be right over with popcorn!!

I love Bob's personality, but I'd rather Jillian train me... she knows how to work 'em! (I have a little drill sargeant in me when I train, or so I've been told!)

I'll be praying for you and your test.

Tanya said...

It tasted like orange soda to me...no problem! Just alot of liquid to keep down at one time.

I am sure you get a million comments and blog "awards." But I love your blog, and wanted to pass along a little award to you. txtanya.blogspot.com =) Tanya

Mandi said...

Hope all goes well tomorrow!

Megan said...

I lourve BB and am pulling for Dan, too! We saw Felix's kick off return td lastnight. C wanted to watch that game instead of our wedding video..imagine that!

Hollie said...

it tastes pretty good. just make sure it's the orange (or any fruit) flavor and NOT the cola flavor. You just cannot imitate cola flavor no matter how hard you try.
you should pass...but if not, you'll get a second try! ;-)

Kristen said...

I was so happy you had the Cowboys clip on here. We just got rid of our cable (I'm beginning to reget it now) an my hubby would check up on the score on EPSN through the blizzard of scrambled t.v. I showed him the clip and it made him smile!
Love Biggest Looser and Bob!! Yay for a new season!

Allison Family said...

I found your blog through another blog through another blog through another blog but... I am a huge BB10 fan and I hope Dan wins it too. I am also Biggest Loser fanatic. I think Bob is the best trainer because Jillian scares me a little.

aWare said...

Long time; no comment! I get to see your updates on my google reader! It is a great gettaway from being overworked:)
I love hearing how things are going, i love the name Harper and everything you do/make is just fabulous! You look beautiful and hte whole food thing....so orginal!

scrap fairy said...

I know!! Wasn't that a great game last night?! Felix rocks!

Betsy said...

That test isn't bad at all...especially if you like sweet stuff! Good luck! And I love the Cowboys!!!

Justin and Jenn said...

I LOVE your blog! And yea for Dan! I'm so glad he beat Memphis!

Krysta said...

YAY for Dan! It's the first time a player that I've been cheering for on BB has won. I also love the BL. Bob is a sweetie, but if I had to choose my trainer, I would choose Jillian because I need someone to yell at me! My hubby is also a huge Cowboys fan, so he got to bed late last night, but was a happy camper. Good luck tomorrow. You look cute as can be!

Jenna said...

I'll be definitely be praying for your glucose test in the morning, my friend!!!

magnoliabelle said...

Good luck tomorrow!

I love both of them for different reasons, but I think I'd choose Jillian if I wanted someone to train me.

Leigh Ann said...

The only part of that entire game I saw just happened to be the minute Felix was making his TD. It was SO exciting!

I kind of liked that orange drink. It is kind of like a flat orange soda with extra sugar. It's not bad, and I know you'll do great. Unfortunately the first time I had to reschedule because I had a PB&J sandwich for breakfast. Not a good thing to eat when you are going for a glucose test! :)

M.E. said...

I didn't realize you were a Big Brother fan! It is probably my fav reality show and annual summer guilty pleasure!
I knew Dan would win it all!
First time there was ever a sweep vote, too!
My five yr old watched it with us this season. His fav was 'Remmy'

Katie said...

Okay, so when I had to take the glucose test with Amelia...I had to drink some hideous LIME flavored one! Who the heck wants something like that?!?! It was not even good lime under all that sugar...it was the fake limey taste...blech! I hope you get the orange-flavored one! ;o)

The Milams said...

I don't think you'll mind the glucose test. Everyone seems to always have a horror story regarding them, but I actually wasn't bothered with it at all. With my 2nd preg. I had to drink the stuff twice b/c after I drank it the first time my friend called and said she was rushing my oldest to the ER b/c he smashed his finger really badly. Soooo off I went to the ER all sugared up!!

Good luck. Take lots of reading or your laptop to keep you busy!

April said...

Hope your glucose test goes well today! I'm sure you'll do just fine. Aren't you glad Dan won on Big Brother last night? I was pulling for him, too! :)

Melissa said...

SO HAPPY to have TBL back!!! My favorite trainer is Bob, he seems to genuinely care for his trainees. Gillian was SO MEAN last night! A little too mean IMHO.

LyndsAU said...

Big Brother lover here :)Didn't love either but so glad Dan won! :) And I love love the Biggest Loser! I mean it's my fave of all time :) Go Bob
