It’s a BOY!

Davina –

Bobby and I eagerly drove to our doctor appointment because we were just about to find out what sex our baby was! Before our name was called, we both took turns guessing the sex of our baby. I guessed a boy and he guessed a girl (I like the fact that I was right lol). Soon after that, we were called in. Bobby sat on the chair next to the reclining doctor seat I was on. The doctor squeezed this gooey stuff on my stomach and once she placed her instrument on my skin, our baby boy’s face popped up on the screen! It was one of the most incredible experiences I have ever had. Finding out I was pregnant, my stomach continually growing, and feeling the tiny kicks were nothing in comparison to seeing this baby in action! During the sonogram he yawned!!! Ah, I can’t get over how amazing it was. The doctor checked his brain, kidneys, heart, and other major organs and everything was healthy. She then printed out a few pictures of our baby and gave them to us. I love just staring at his picture thanking God for this little miracle. His new due date is September 25th! Cant wait till he arrives!

A Life Roller Coaster

Davina –

Wow! It’s been such a long time since I’ve written a new post. My apologies! I’m going to try to get back into the habit of blogging. Anyways, a lot has happened in the last 9 weeks! Seriously, God has been pulling Bobby and I on this life roller coaster. Bobby and I meet, 7 months later we get married, 5 days later I get pregnant (that’s right, there is a little one on the way!), we move to San Francisco, in one random weekend we decide to dump our new life in SF and move down to Carlsbad. Can I say CRAZY?! Haha, yes crazy but full of adventure.

Well, I’m off to make dinner…peace

My Awesome Creativity lol

Davina –

What am I doing? Cooking chicken for the broth. What am I looking at? Birdknee. Is he cute? YES.

Sooo, today I started my own cook book! It’s pretty awesome. Filled with decorations of princess stickers, ribbon, crayon drawings, and shiny stars. :). I’m using an old journal I never used and cutting and pasting random recipes to the pages! Yes, I know, I am SO creative 🙂 lol I’m excited, when I’m finished you ALL will be jealous.

OK…I need to go change the fish’s dirty water and kiss Birdknee. Today is Martin Luther King day, maybe Bobby will come home early today 😉 peace!!!

Beginning to a Normal Monday

Davina –

OK so, its 9:23am. This morning Bobby woke me up “a little before 7” when i pushed the “getting out of bed part” for another 15 minutes. After getting up we both got ready for the day (Bobby putting on running clothes-for running to work and I threw on jeans and a North Medford sweatshirt). Since Safeway is SO FAR AWAY and I really didn’t feel like going all the way over there and lugging everything back up a mountain Bobby walked me to a small little organic grocery store which was WAY closer. Seeing that it was organic and local it was a little more expensive- meaning I’ll probably go to Safeway next time (and all the other times). But either way I bought what I wanted and needed. And good thing, every item fit in our small dorm room size refrigerator 🙂 As I am typing this I glanced over to the kitchen only to remind myself that I need to wash the dishes….ugh, dirty dishes are so gross. With the nasty leftover food smeared on the plates. AND the food dispenser is broken. No worries, I will endure.

My New Life

Davina –

It’s been exactly 17 days since my wedding. Crazy, huh? Every time I think back to my wedding I can’t help but smile. It was the most wonderful day! Perfect in every way. Being surrounded by those I love and being united with the man of my dreams, what more could I have wanted? I am truly blessed and am so happy.

Currently, we live in San Francisco in a cute little apartment. Bobby, Birdknee, Norbert (our beta fish), Trooper (our goldfish), and I are enjoying our life together. We just got rid of our car, named Delilah. Poor car couldn’t handle the treacherous hills here in the city (she was a stick) so now we are forced to use our legs. 🙂 Bobby runs to and from work and I walk to wherever I need to go…speaking of which, yesterday I had to walk to the market so I took my empty backpack (named Veronica) and headed towards Safeway. It was a lovely walk, fresh crisp air, lovely scenery, people about enjoying the sun, and all downhill! Three annoying things that happened on the way to the store: 1) my Achilles were bothering me 2) I was wearing a black sweater and it was hot 3) while I was crossing the street a woman honked at me! But all was fine and I made it to the store 🙂 I got the ingredients I needed for the meals I plan on cooking and went to check out. The Asian gentleman who was putting my groceries in Veronica was being so rough with my food I was afraid he was going to tear my milk carton so I told him to stop and I gently packed all my things just right. When I put the backpack on my back I felt as if there were a bunch of bricks in it rather than food. Nevertheless I headed back to our apartment. The walk back seemed faster than the walk to the store which was nice. But the main thing that was different was the massive hills! They are seriously ruler straight and with a bunch of heavy groceries on my back. It was a good workout 🙂

Taquitos with Friends

Bobby –

A couple days ago my darling wife prepared taquitos for some company we had in town. David Leyva III and Ana Gonzalez came to our humble little place and we enjoyed sweet fellowship, dinner and a game of Scrabble.

Thoughts Before Coffee Date…

Bobby –

There are a million little coffee shops in the City and we are on our way to have ‘coffee for two…for here, thank you.’ I was reading in Genesis this morning where the Lord blesses His creation. First He blesses our procreation, then our dominion over creation and then He does something slightly foreign to my thinking – He blesses our food, as if to say that the meaning of life is fellowship, Lordship and…eating?  But now I’m going to have to meditate on why eating is so important to life, because as I scan the dry pages of my Bible, I come to see that food is the substance of my interaction with Jesus. I cannot have fellowship with my Lord without Him becoming my daily bread and I cannot have him as Lord over me unless I eat of His body. Could it be true that we cannot interact with each other and become one without food?

They Should Have Named it “The Cold-an’ Wind Bridge”!

Davina & Bobby –

D: This morning Bobby woke me up and asked me if I wanted to go running.

B: Her answer was a question.

D: What was my question?

B: Well, it was more of a non-answer.

D: I was thinking of all the things I had to do and I was thinking about whether I wanted to spend a couple hours running! Instead of doing all the laundry and dishes. Our house is messy!

B: (Davina just went to check the beans. Bean soup for tonight.) Well, needless to say, I coaxed my bride from bed and in a few minutes we, the Krause Family, were pounding our feet into the pavement, wind in our faces, the crisp San Francisco air against our bodies.

D: Yeah, yeah. Bobby didn’t tell me exactly how cold it would be. On the bridge –

B: We aren’t at that part of the story yet!

D: Then where are we?

B: Well first we went to Crissy Field and had some water.

D: Okay. THEN we went to the Golden Gate Bridge.

B: Wait. First I asked my Bride if she wanted to go home. She said…

D: No!

B: Exactly.

D: NO! I mean…you didn’t ask! You basically said…

B: It was fun.

D: It felt like negative 100 degrees! And I was wearing a running skirt –

B: It was a cute running skirt.

D: – a t-shirt, compression socks and my Nirvana running shoes. It was so cold my hands were going to fall off…I was miserable. Bobby didn’t tell me how freezing it was going to be.

B: It started out warm at Crissy Field.

D: (Silence)

B: Confession: Davina didn’t tell me her tolerance for cold was so low. She TOLD me that her favorite thing in the world was wind. So, I took her to the windiest place I knew. You’d think that that would mean instant romance.

D: Anyways, on the way back, we went to Fleet Feet (B: a specialty running store) and I can honestly say that the Running Center (B: another specialty running store) is better!! Then to finish off the run we ran up a ruler straight mountain.

B: It was more like scaling a wall.

D: Every muscle in my body ached. But it was fun.

B: The

D: End.
