Happy 3 Years!

Happy 3 Year Anniversary to my sweet hubby, Heath!

I can't believe how fast 3 years has gone by! It is amazing how much your love grows and changes over the years. Since I've been pregnant, I've seen a different side to Heath and I'm sure I will see more of those sweet, soft changes once baby boy arrives!

The picture above is taken at a mexican restaurant we decided to go to called La Pachanga. We had a voucher for a 3 course meal plus drinks for 2 for $29! Hands down, best authentic mexican food I've ever had in Australia! It's one of those hole-in-the-wall places that would either be really good or really bad (kind of like some of those mexican fast food places in downtown Mesa that are soooo good). I peeked into their kitchen to look at some of the ingredients they use and I spotted the same canned enchilada sauce my mom uses and Herdez salsa! Soooo happy we found this place, and it's only 5 minutes from home! We will definitely be visiting this place at least once a week until we move back to America...

Weekend Away, 4th of July, and more Belly Photos

As usual, lots has been happening and I feel like I never have enough time to blog! Here are some photos over the last couple weeks...

 Heath and I at his sister's, Renae, wedding. I had the flu that weekend so I felt pretty sick but managed to drag myself there. Like Heath's hair cut?

Here is our little 4th of July party we had at our friend Julie's house. I was in Sydney for a work conference last month and we went to the Costco that opened up there, which is where I purchased the 24 pack of Dr. Pepper!!! I paid $30, which is outrageous in America, but when we pay $2.50 for one can here, I feel like I got a bargain. It was gone in less than a week!

 Julie is Australian but got in the American spirit and make red and blue Gatorade ice cubes with Sprite. It was very festive and yummy!

 Heath and I booked a weekend away down the Gold Coast for our anniversary. Our anniversary isn't until July 18th but since Heath was on school holidays last week, we decided to go a little early.

 28 weeks!

 We went goofy golfing..

 We really had no plans while we were there so we decided to take a trip down memory lane and visit the 5 houses his family lived in when they first moved to Queensland.


 A pipe line he used to play on as a kid. As you can see, it stretches for a long while and at the end of it there is a creek. Heath and his friends used to play at this creek often. There is a rope swing there and his friend (best man) David got his leg tangled up in the rope somehow and was dangling there with his head under water. Heath swam over and held his head above water for the next few minutes while another friend cut him down. Heath continually reminds David that he saved his life!



 Every year for our anniversary, we try and find a new mexican place and try it out (when we went on our first date in America, we went to Costa Vida so mexican is now the tradition).This place was called the Aztec and it was crap! It sucks how it looks like it would taste authentic and then you eat it and the flavors are all wrong. We'll have to keep looking..

 We decided to go for a walk on the beach our last morning there.

There have been massive king tides at this particular beach, which is why the sand is eroded (pushed up like a wall).

We drove back to Brisbane in time for Heath to play footy Saturday afternoon. I haven't been to many games this year and I was really bad and didn't take much photos but this is him after the game...he's pretty upset because they lost by 10 goals.

I've been working like crazy the last couple weeks, training my replacement and getting things sorted before I go on maternity leave (7 weeks to go!!). Heath has been getting a few teaching contracts here and there. The contract he is doing right now is full time Math teacher! He works at a pretty rough high school....Math is probably one of the most hated subjects and it's mandatory so the students have not been easy on him. But we're grateful he has a job!

Baby boy has been kicking so much lately! It's so fun to feel his little hands and feet moving across my stomach. Heath enjoys it more now because he is able to feel it as well. I can't believe I'm 29 weeks this week! It's gone by quick but I am ready for him to be here already!
