A long time coming. I understand some people are better at things then others but when it comes to blogging I am failing miserably. Time to catch up. Well let's start with the most important details first. As many of you know...
We have having a baby BOY!
It is really wild we honestly couldn't be more excited. I already feel like he is such a big part of our little family. We truly feel more blessed and he is on his way at the perfect time in our lives. I can't wait to meet this little boy. On the topic of things I'm not very good at pregnancy is high on the list. It is more hard work then I anticipated by a long shot. I have been extremely sick the entire time. Praying that the sickness goes away soon for mine and husbands sake. If anyone has found any tricks for nausea PLEASE feel free to share. There has been a lot of other neat things that has been happening in the Weekes household. They all seem pretty inconsequential since I started with the post with the main act. Here is a list of other worthy mentions of things that have been happening in the last year:
- We moved in June! It's a really amazing home in north Provo. Pictures to come.
- Our callings in the ward are beehive adviser and elders quorum teacher. This has been my favorite calling. These girls are seriously rad.
- I have been working at Nordstrom for almost a year.
- Husbands car business is doing really well we are so thankful.
- London turned three.
-We took some very rock star vacations. Our East Coast trip was the favorite but Sedona, San Diego, Denver, and the always impressive Coeur d'Alene were wonderful and we gained some pretty legit memories.
I feel like I am giving information overload. I should stop. I will break this up and just have to blog more. I hear that blogging is easier when you have a cute little one to talk about all the time. Ill plan on that. Oh and pictures will arrive shortly too!
Husband and I just went on what might go down on records as the best trip in history. We spent a few days in Florida and then went on a cruise to the Caribbean. We came back a little more tan, with a lot of unforgettable memories, and a depleted bank account. For the casual followers this may seem a little overwhelming but please bear with me my family has been demanding details and pictures.
Day one: Location: Miami! Got a cute little rental car and went exploring. Went to south beach, sang to will smiths song Miami, checked out the shops, went to dash no Kardashian in sight, and went to a ne-yo show.
Day two: Location: Florida Keys! We talked to some locals and rented some snorkeling gear and headed to the keys. Sang VERY loudly to the beach boys song kocomo, went to annes beach, found a sunken ship, and had key lime pie.
Day three: Location: sea (passing by Cuba) Boarded the ship Valor, had a fun day at sea, thought about London way too much.
Day four: Location: Grand Cayman! Celebrated my birthday! We went on an excursion to sting ray city, pet, kissed, and fed sting rays, then it took us over to a bay with dolphins. We were assigned to Luna and Nemo as our personal dolphins. I really loved them and really want one of my own. We got to pet, kiss, swim, and play with them. So rad.
Day five: Location: Isla Rotan, Honduras! We found a taxi driver that stayed with us for the day, he took us all over the island, we went to tabyana beach, snorkeled, and played with monkeys. We were let in the monkey cages. They were trouble makers. They stole husbands hat and water bottle, and three baby monkeys the size of baby kittens peed all over me. I don't mind they were so cute. Sadly enough our camera died right before we got there. I guess we will just have to do it again.
Day six: Location: Belize! We went on a cave tubing excursion. We hiked through a jungle and then headed down this river through unbelievable caves on a tube. It was a really neat experience. The stalactites and stalagmites were beautiful, the bats were not.
Day seven: location: Cozumel! We rented a scooter and explored the town. We went to a beach that had a rock climbing wall in the ocean, kayaks, water trampolines, and wind sailing. We spent most of our time there and did a little local shopping. It was beautiful.
Day eight: location: sea: We spent the day at sea loving the entertainment, and eating far beyond our limits.
Day nine: location: Orlando! after a very dramatic experience of getting off the ship and leaving my baby blanket on the ship. Nothing a few rule breaking and tears wont fix we headed to Orlando. We stayed with some good friends Alysse and Chasten. We also got to experience a Florida rainstorm.
Day Ten: Location: Disney World! Alysse works at Disney World so we got to spend the day there. It was our first time! There was so much to do you need more than one day there. We got lucky and there were barely any lines. Thank you Alysse!
Day Eleven: Location: Orem! We spent the morning in Orlando at the pool and eating yummy food. We left that night and flew back home. Home sweet home.
P.S. I apologize for such a long post. I really just didn't want to forget some of the details. Thank you husband for spoiling me!
This summer has been unforgettable. You know the saying work hard play hard. Well we only listened to the second half. Like most summers this summer was packed full of fun vacations. We didn't turn down any chance to get out of town. We took a trip to vegas, idaho, california, and we even went to lake powell twice. This summer has been incredible. But something has been missing and I finally figured it out. Its August and a harsh reminder of this was when I walked into Office Max and it smelled like school supplies. Lets put it this way I wish they made Office Max scented candles, laundry detergent, and perfume. It gets me so excited for school. This will be my first August not spending countless hours on rate my professor, fighting for parking, or logging on to blackboard every thirty min. I miss school more than most of my friends in high school. I either need summer to stay or August to be taken off the calendar. Please.
Twelve which means about 7th grade. I was shy. Played volleyball and danced. I was obsessed with my two bffs. I had my first kiss. An average day consisted of making music videos, trying to get on Guinness book of world record, planning my music career, trying to be trendy, and thinking my older brothers were rad. I guess a lot hasn’t changed…

Husband had some major mouth work recently. He got all four of his wisdom teeth pulled, some cavities fixed, and a little dental straightening added to the mix. Doctors orders to take it easy and I have never seen husband listen to directions so well. Sleeping, movies, having smoothies has been the only things on the agenda lately. Oh and a special thanks to Dr. Hathaway for putting small holes in the teeth so he could make a wisdom tooth necklace. He actually made it and has not taken it off since. He looks a little like this guy...
