Traveling with the Bulldogs

Incase nobody knew, the first ever college football game was played at Rutgers. I am out here in New Jersey with the Fresno State football team. We play Rutgers Monday afternoon on ESPN.

I was able to see the Princeton campus while out here. It is 261 years old and the most beautiful campus I have been too. I was never smart enough to get into the school (I really never applied) so it was cool to step foot on the campus.

Bringing Sexy Back!!!!

Steve is always making me laugh. I have come to realize that I really think his motto should be " Anything for a Cheap Laugh" He loves to do things to make me and others just crack up. Last night we were shopping for shoes . We found some crazy looking ones. He was a good sport and put them on for me . I just laughed. In fact we went back home , just so we could get the camera. You have to capture moments like this!!!! Life is way to wonderful not to.

Here is my favorite!!! I was laughing so hard I couldn't keep the camera from shaking.

Steve picked some out for me. I swear Micheal Jackson has worn these boots before in one of his music videos. Just had to put my shades on so I would look somewhat cool ( Yeah Right)

What is Baby Schaack up to?

I am going into my 30th week of pregnancy. I can't believe how time flies. Steve and I really enjoy going to our baby appointments. I tend to worry a little to much. It is reassuring when the doctor lets you know that everything is okay. We joke, because we were both big babies. If our little Cami Girl takes after her parents, she is going to be one "healthy little girl".We wouldn't want it any other way :} Some of my primary kids always ask me if I have a basketball in my shirt. It really looks like it!!!

What's the Schaack Man been up to?

Many of you might know that Steve works for Fresno State in the Media Relations Department. He is so good at what he does. He gets to experience a lot of fun things and travel with the teams to all the different games. The only good thing about him being gone is that I get to hear him on the radio. In fact his nickname is the Radio Schaack!! It is so fun to hear his voice. I think when our kids are a little older they will love to hear there daddy's voice and see him on T.V . With college football quickly approaching, (Who doesn't love college football such a fun time of year) Steve has been very busy going to all the practices sometimes two times a day. Soon to all the games home and away!!! Glad he enjoys what he does and is so good at it too!!!

29 weeks and counting !!!(BRING IT ON)

Every time Steve and I go out to eat or go somewhere we are always say how fun and different it is going to be when our little baby girl arrives. We have been seeing little kids in grocery stores,and restaurants sometimes being so sweet and cute. Other times throwing fits, throwing foods, or screaming at the top of their lungs. We always look at each other and say, "Are we really ready for this." We know things might take a little more time and we might not always have those peaceful meals. We are excited for the new adventures and the sleepless nights that await us :} Are lives are about to change BIGTIME!!! So we are going in with the attitude BRING IT ON and we will just have to hold on tight :}

Making Something out of Nothing

So I always tell people that Alli has the ability to make something out of nothing. When I open the cupboards in the kitchen sometimes I say to myself we have nothing to eat. Then I turn around and Alli has made a full course meal. You want chocolate chip cookies but don't have the chocolate chips well have chocolate peanut butter cookies and use hot chocolate mix for your chocolate. They cookies sure taste good. 

Today the craftiness in Alli came out as she made the letters C A M I (what we are going to name our girl) to hang up in our other room. In stead of purchasing wooden block letters at the store she printed a very big letter off the computer and then cut it out and traced the letters onto fancy paper. So what was the fancy paper? Well she took old gift bags and traced the letters over that. Creative, I think so. She then went and lamented the letters and she hung them up in the room.

Mr. Fixit (Well Not Really)

Two nights ago we had a shelf fall off the fall in our kitchen. I tried forever to try and nail the shelf back in the wall and get it to stay but I just couldn't do it. After making numerous holes in the wall Alli and I finally decided to move another picture over the holes where we would have had the shelf and then we just stuffed the shelf in the closet. It wasn't fun. I realized then that whenever Alli and I move out of an apartment and into a house everything needs to be in good shape. If it isn't it might take me a month to fix it. 

In this picture I am rehanging curtains where a nail fell off the wall. Here I actually did something right. 

Steve always makes me laugh. He doesn't have to be Mr. Home Improvement  He already has won me over, Mr Fix it or not. We just laugh at all our attempts to hang things up and put things together.

28 Weeks and Counting!!!!

Steve and I can't believe that our little baby girl will be here in 2 1/2 months. We are so EXCITED to have her be part of our lives. She is very active and likes to move a lot especially when I am trying to sleep. I can tell she is her daddy's girl. Everytime I eat ice cream or drink cold juice she goes crazy by kicking and wanting more and more. So grateful for this little miracle in our lives. 

One Last Vacation

Well it is one last vacation before Steve gets into the grind of work with a baby girl coming at the end of October and Fresno State football beginning in August. We took a few a few days and headed to LA where we spent time at Venice Beach and saw the broadway play Wicked. It was a quick trip but a lot of fun. The play is incredible. Being in LA in 80 degree weather was much better than being in the triple digits here in Fresno.
