Well that was Unexpected

Remember that post I made about a month ago about why Jake and I are waiting to have kids? Well everything about that post was 100% true.  Except birth control decided to fail on me and put me in that 2% who gets fucked over by it and hey look who's knocked up now!? 
I found out about a week after our 1 year anniversary. I remember earlier in the week telling my Husband that we probably wouldn't be able to have bedroom fun on our anniversary because my monthly visitor was due two days before and I am NEVER late. So when our anniversary came and went with still no visitor I got a little nervous. About a week and a half later I finally decided to go get a test just to prove my husband wrong since he had been teasing me all week about me being knocked up and I did not want to believe it. So I took it and immediately I had a positive result. Jake wasn't due to be home for about 3 hours and I literally just sat on the couch in a daze waiting for him to get home. 
When he did get home,  he came over to hug me, which is his nightly routine, and ironically he made a little joke about me being pregnant again. I replied with "Yeah we need to talk about that. You should sit down." So he did on the chair a few feet away and I said "No you should come sit next to me." So he moved closer and I handed him the test. His face lit up and he had the biggest smile on his face. At that moment I bursted into tears. He was so happy and I was there feeling that my life was officially over. I was TERRIFIED. 
Jake has always wanted to be a dad and after seeing him with his friend's kids I knew he would be a great one. A couple years ago he had his swimmers tested and he was told he had a really low count and the chances of him conceiving were very very low. So after that he feared that his dream of being a dad would never happen. So now he likes to go around and say that this pregnancy is a result of his "super swimmers" and that birth control didn't stand a chance against them. It's quite comical really. He even said that to my Dr. when we went in to have it confirmed and she laughed. I was on the pill and I know many think I just missed one or didn't use them correctly but I am 100% sure that is not the case. I had two alarms set on my phone 1/2 hour apart to make sure none was missed.
So I am 9 weeks along, haven't had any symptoms except being really super tired from time to time. I haven't been sick, I have no cramping, no minor spotting, no headaches, nothing. I hope it stays that way too. At our appointment last week I had a transvaginal ultrasound done to confirm how far along I was since it's hard to predict when you get pregnant on Birth Control. So as of now my due date is October 28th. Jake wants me to hold it in for a couple more days so we can have a Halloween baby. I'm guessing by that point I will just want the thing out of me. We also got to see the heartbeat and everything looked normal. We were also very relieved that there was only one since twins run in Jake's family. 
Our little Blip
So I will probably be doing certain updates on the blog about this pregnancy but I promise not to let it overtake it. I don't want to be a blogger who writes about the latest baby gadgets blah blah blah. I will write about the milestones and the truth about what it's like for me without any sugar coating it. I think women who don't have kids should be prepared. 
As of right now I am still in a bit of denial but I'm slowly becoming more excited. There is a lot of drama surrounding why I am not 100% happy for this baby but I will get to that on another day. Oh and isn't our announcement photo the cutest? We took them before our appointment when my due date was supposed to be November 6th. Turns out I was a week farther along then we thought. =]

Cosmic Run 5k

My Husband I have been on a roll with these 5ks lately. I think we need to move up to a longer one next!
Last night we ran the Cosmic Run which is a lower budget version of the Color Run that is done at night with chalky stuff that glows under a black light. It was an alright event. Color Run was had more color, more merchandise, and more things to do overall. 
Something eventful did happen while I was running though. There I was going at a good pace, having fun, and all of a sudden boom I'm tripping and falling on the ground. Turns out I tripped over a goddamn pinecone! I twisted my ankle pretty bad, scraped up my knees and elbow, but I got up after the fall, walked for a little bit and I continued running! It hurt like hell but I wasn't going to let it stop me. I woke up this morning barely able to walk. My ankle was in much worse shape this morning than last night so I iced it and wrapped it and I'm hoping it will heal up fast.

I Love Horror Movies (Lights Out)

I grew up watching scary movies. Ever since I was a kid. Dawn of the Dead, Amityville Horror, Halloween, Friday the 13th, Texas Chainsaw Massacre etc. I know some people would call that bad parenting and would predict I would grow up into a messed up serial murderer as a result of it but I have to say I turned out as normal as they come. What is normal anyway? 
My mom loves all those classic horror films and naturally I do too. They never scare me, creep me out, or give me nightmares. The only time I really "get scared" is when they do the inevitable quiet scene broken up by a seriously loud bang and something like a black cat popping out. So typical. 
I love bringing the husband out to see all the new horror or supernatural movies that come out. Yes, I am also a sucker for the ones about ghosts! It is hilarious to see him get nervous and scared when watching these! I am just so intrigued by them.
My love for these types of movies were also the main reason why I got my Bachelors's in Psychology. I ultimately wanted to be a criminal psychologist and work with the craziest of the crazy. I wanted to get in their head, hear their stories, and understand what would posses someone to murder. In my free time I read up on a few books including Serial Killers: The Method and Madness of Monsters, Cannibal Serial Killers: Profiles of Depraved Flesh Eating Murderers, and Female Serial Killers: How and Why Women become Monsters. They actually all sit behind me on my bookshelf and I am tempted to read them again. In 7th grade we had to do a report about a person from history. I did mine on Ed Gein; the inspiration for popular horror film characters, including Norman Bates (Psycho), Jame Gumb (The Silence of the Lambs) and Leatherface (Texas Chainsaw Massacre). 
Anyway...back to the point of this post. I stumbled upon this awesome Film Competition that was put on called the "Who's There Film Challenge" which is nothing but a bunch of very short creepy films. I thought I should share my favorite one and the website just in case you wanted to check out the others. They are all VERY good!
This one is called Lights Out. You must watch!!

Where are all the REAL Blog Posts?

I love reading bloggers who write about their lives. It seems like all I am seeing on my Bloglovin' feed lately are crafts, sponsored posts, recipes, how-to posts related to blogging, and book reviews. Now I do love these posts from time to time but where's the real life stuff? I like reading things that allow me to relate to people. I love reading about bloggers' happy times, adventures, hard times, struggles, etc. It makes them human and it allows me to get to know them a little better. I wish more of the bloggers I follow would go back to these posts. I know I occasionally post about crafts and products too but I also try and add some of the adventures my husband and I have or how work is going and add cute pictures of my dogs. 
Has anyone else noticed the lack of real life posts or is it just me? If you are looking for more blogs who post this way here are my favorites!
I'm thinking about unfollowing some of the blogs that rarely ever post about their lives. I hate to do it but I've just lost interest in them and while they do have a lot of good ideas and tips that's just not what I am looking for at the moment.

Puppy Love 5k

This morning me, Jake, and the pups all went out and ran a 5k to support my work! All proceeds benefit the homeless animals in our care. Total the run brought in $75,000! We love running 5ks, we did The Color Run this past fall and we have The Cosmic Run next weekend but it's nice to run for something that makes a difference. Running for a charity that really means a lot to you is a whole different experience. We had fun, the dogs had fun, and we all ran it straight though with only a couple breaks for water. I was very proud of my chubby chihuahua for completing it! 
We got a lot of free goods to try out too! My dogs are going to get fat after all these treats! 
Jake even made it on the website/Facebook page!

Our 1 Year Anniversary

This past Saturday March 1st was our 1st wedding anniversary! We started off the day with me going to work from 6AM to Noon. When I got home we exchanged gifts. Jake got me a Terrarium which we assembled and filled with all the nerdy things we like; Legos, Star Wars, Dinosaurs, Harry Potter, and Doctor Who. He also went down to the beach where he proposed to me at, collected some sand and water and put it in a jar with a cute note. 
For him I made this cute DIY. Where we met, where he proposed, and where we got married! 
After that we made some chocolate covered Strawberries then went to Dave and Busters to play some Arcade games and have a nice dinner. When we got home we ate our berries and popped the Champagne that we got on our wedding night! 

Let's not forget the sappy facebook statuses too! =]
Overall, it was a really great day and I am glad I got to spend it with my Hubby. I love that silly goof more than anyone could ever understand. I really can't wait for all our future years together.
