I can enjoy the holidays now........

As many of you know my second family are my teams at UVU. This time of year gets extremely busy with fund-raising, practices, games and then January hits and we go full speed until the end of April! We got through this last weekend with my UVU Drill Invitational, and cheer was hosting a UCA competition. I feel like I have a little room to breathe and can think about Christmas. I love them, and wouldn't have it any other way!
GO Wolverines!!

Do you know any vendors??

I am hosting our annual UVU Drill Invitational Dec. 11th and 12th, 2009. It is a fundraiser for the UVU Dance Team. We offer the opportunity for vendors to come and sell their merchandise to all the schools that are coming! It is a huge event and a great opportunity to get your stuff out there! There is a booth rental fee but get to me quick, as we don't allow more than one vedor that offers the same merchandise.
Let me know if any of you crafty and creative moms out there want to jump on this opportunity! We have over 30 schools attending! So it should be worth your time!
Here is one of the vendors that we are having come this year, cute stuff!!

Princess relaxing... She lives the life doesn't she??

Can't be more grateful for a good baby!

Utah Game.... Brock decided his lucky shirt no longer worked after the loss last week so he opted for this bright green polo, he didn't think he stood out!

We went for a Fall drive up the canyon, Stella loved it!

And lastly Happy Anniversary to you! Is 3 years supposed to feel this long...... Well I guess we have done alot in those three years! I have loved every second of it, and am so glad we've been through it together. Couldn't be happier, love you!

Let the football season begin!

Last Friday the high school football season got started. My cousins, Bronson and Corbin play for Timpview so we went to their game first and then to the Spanish Fork game at half time. Brock's brother coaches there and Brock loves to go to the games, I however feel like I am reliving my past everytime I am there! Anyway Stella experienced her first of many football games, thanks to a mom of one of my dance team girls she was appropriately dressed in her football headband and red outfit! We are gearing up for the big game next week-Go UTES!
My beautiful mother and aunt Michelle, don't they look great!

Gerber baby?

I come home from work and Brock always has a slew of pictures to show me that he has taken while doing daddy day care. This is one of them from the other night. Unfortunately it is only from his iphone, he dropped our camera the day we left the hospital taking Stella home. Maybe he feels a little guilty for the camera and compensates by taking soooo many pics, but they sure are cute!

Stella at her first cheer camp!

A new year has begun, and I love my job!! Here is the link to our new UVU Spirit Squad Blog!

I am so privileged to work with such amazing and talented students. I love what I do because of them. We just returned from NCA/NDA camp in Las Vegas. Both teams did great! The Dance Team won a partial paid Bid and Cheer won the overall Spirit Award (voted on by the other teams at camp) We had a great time and survived the heat, even Stella came! I hope you get a chance to check out the new blog!

Best Friends...

Chesney loves his sissy!
Brock came in the living room to see what chesney was barking at the other day and Stella was slowly sliding down in the swing, he is now our new babysitting dog!
(Brock was on babysitting duty, we had a talk about not leaving the room!)

Two month appt. today here's where our princess stands:
15 lbs.
25 inches
I asked the doctor what percentile she was in, he chuckled at me and said 95% +

Seriously where did my baby go???

Many Blessings!

Many things have happened with the Condie's lately and all I can sum it up to is that we have been very blessed. With the birth of little (or should I say healthy, let's just say nursing is going extremely well!) Stella, moving, the 4th of July and family I am so grateful for this time in our lives.

Stella loves her bath tub!
Here is a picture on the 4th of July at the parade. Her shirt says Miss America, I did enter her into her first baby contest (and the only one until she's 18 according to Brock!) But she won 2nd in the costume category, she had a little crown headband and red, white and blue shoes I made. She looked darling!

My cheerleaders at the Provo Parade, love them this year, can't wait!Here we are on Stella's blessing day. This is outside our new house.

Stella is so lucky to have so many wonderful grandmas!!

Welcome to Motherhood!!

I'm Alive.... barely! Yes I did finally have this baby and here's the watered down version of getting her here. Started Wednesday April 29th mid afternoon went in two different times to get a treatment to help me dilate.... didn't work. But it did however put me into labor at 2 am Thursday morning. Went to the hospital at 4am continued contracting on my own but still dilated at a 1. They started me on pitocin, got the epidural and still at a 1! Last resort was this procedure that manually dilates you, lots of fun! Finally was at a 4 24 hours after starting this whole process. After consulting with the Dr. and divine intervention from my sweet husband we decided to go ahead and do a c-section. And it is a good thing because the baby's head was lodged in my pelvic bones and I wouldn't have been able to get her out anyway! We then welcomed Stella Lynne Condie into the world at 6:58pm 8lbs. 12oz. 19 inches long. We stayed in the hospital for 4 days and nights and we needed it! Brock and I seriously should be on a reality show on first-time parents, it is hilarious! All is well and Stella is doing great, I am still recovering and taking one hour at a time. We took her to her 2 week check-up today and she is now 9lbs. 8oz. and 22 3/4 inches long. She is a big girl with a big personality, she already holds her binky in her mouth by herself! To see some pics go to they're pretty dang cute!

Bring on the baby!!!!!

A little update to my blogging family! I went to the Dr. today and still not a whole lot of progress. Which is ok, I have come to terms with her being stubborn. Brock and I are already trying to strategise on how to handle her! I will go in on Wednesday and they will hopefully get things going, so maybe Thursday. Keep your fingers crossed!

Happy Due Date.... I guess!

Yes, as you can see the baby ticker on the side has reached a big fat 0!!!!!! I am due today and still no baby Stella! I even had a false alarm..... I went in to get a non-stress test this morning anyway to make a long story short I thought my water had broken so they admit me. I get into the gown get my game face on thinking "ok this baby is coming today!" and they send me home. So I am back to square one!! We will keep you posted!
Love to all~

New Teams and Baby update!

This past weekend we had our UVU Dance Team auditions. Can I just say how amazed I am at the talend we have in Utah! It was somewhat of a pay off day to see all the time and dedication I have put into my little job here, we had 98 girls show up for the audition!!! I know, I was a little overwhelmed and sorting through that many didn't even give me a sign of labor! We ended up with an amazing team and several others I would have loved to take and hope they come back next year. The fun part is that 13 of my returning girls made it and will come back for another great year!!I have posted those new UVDT members and UVU Cheer members on our website We also had cheer try-outs a couple weeks ago and that too was extremely successful, 40+ girls and enough guys to choose from! We have an amazing and talented squad with 11 guys and 12 girls with a total of 15 returning members! I hope that labor is this successful, ahhhh !!
And as you can guess I still have not had the baby, the official due date is Thursday but you better believe that we are trying everything under the sun! My doctor estimates an 8 pounder!!! Wish me luck!!

Update on UVDT and still no baby!

Another week... another win! I am so excited for my dance team, they competed down in florida this week and placed 2nd going into finals and ended up third in the Dance Division 1. I unfortunately couldn't be there because of this stubborn baby who won't come out, I do have a week or so left but am getting a little impatient, it's been nine months already! Anyway I couldn't be more proud of this years team and it just reminds me that I am truly lucky to have such a great job and work with these great students! Go UVDT! I will post pics when I can get my hands on some, but go to click on NCA/NDA Collegiate Nationals and search for UVU.

Moving, baby showers and National Champs!

I have been in a whirlwind of chaos the last several weeks! But I am not complaining, I have loved every minute of it and am also savoring the freedom I have with this little girl still inside me! I have never felt the love by friends and family so much from help with moving and meals being brought in and good friends throwing showers for me and little Stella (that is her name, or so Brock says until we see if she really looks like a Stella!). I have also been overwhelmed with pride for the UVU Cheer Squad and them taking 1st at the USA National Competition last weekend. We also had try-outs this week and I had all but one want to return! This has been such a great time in my life and I can't wait for it to get a little better (hopefully sooner than later- please come out baby!)

Here's some photos to catch you up.......
Shower with friends from Highshcool! Jan is an amazing hostess! Julie and I are both due the same week, hopefully we will be in the hospital together, you couldn't seperate us while we were in Jr. High so why should it be different! Thank girlies!Here I am at a work shower, I love all of my co-workers! They got us a swing, so exciting!

Brock's friends wives threw me a shower on Saturday, all four of us in this picture are due in the next 5 months! I love them all and it's a good thing because when we get together we rarely see our husbands! This one was also well hosted by everyone, thanks guys!

Here is the cheer squad at the Nationals Send-off party. I don't have any pictures of them actually competing because I can't travel right now but go to and you can find their nationals routine on there!

Baby shower time!

Last Saturday my Mom's wonderful family threw me a baby shower! As you can see the day was a success! Thanks for everyone who helped! A couple weeks before that the Condie side also threw a shower for me, I unfortunately don't have any pics from that one because we were in the middle of moving!! But thank you to all my wonderful family members for helping me prepare to bring this little baby here!

Our good friends made this darling diaper cake with everything the baby will need! It must have taken hours thanks guys!

My cousin Jerica came, I haven't seen her in years! You can tell she is definately a relative!

My great friends came and they love BYU so I took a photo to document that they were at Coach Kaufusi's house. I wasn't sure if they were more excited about meeting him or the baby,I love em! Jenny and Camille this ones for you!

Love to all~

What to do..

I'm not one to post really personal stuff, at least I think I'm not!? You just never know who's going to pop on here and read or look at your pics, right?? I haven't posted much about my pregnancy other than a few pics because it really has been a good one, I can't complain. But for some reason (probably the reason being I am pregnant...) I feel like I need a little ranting and raving or crying and sobbing. Either way my emotions are on a constant roller coaster ride!
I'm hoping this might bring some relief. I really feel like I am at my wits end! I have a little over 4 weeks left and not to mention we are living out of our house (we are trying to get into a new home before the baby comes, yikes!) I seriously don't know how I am going to make it to the whole birthing part of the pregnancy and then have this thing come out of me, that is mine and I can't just give her to someone else when she starts crying? Because that is what I have done with other babies and I have never been one to stop a baby from crying! So as you can see I am a little nervous, anxious and a million other emotions all the time (really don't know why Brock is still hangin around!) I guess I'm asking is this chaos of feeling ill prepared but that it can't come soon enough, normal?????????

Introducing UVU's New Student Body President!

So my endless plugs of voting for UVoice paid off last night! My little brother Trevor was announced the New Student Body President at UVU! I couldn't be a more proud sister! I even gave him the lucky tie he is wearing!! Some have said the "Tooke" curse is now broken, let's hope so! After my older brother lost the Student Body President election in 2000, Trevor loosing the VP of Clubs in 2007 and Me always coming up 2nd best at Miss Utah, it was time to see the luck turn our way!! They definitely deserved to win, here is a picture of his team below.

Trevor's Biggest FANS, the UVU Dance Team!
