Pretty Ring

I was reading this post this morning, just like I do every morning. Joanna is great, really great. If you don't read her blog, you should start now.

I just love the ring that is found here.

Don't you think it is lovely?! Simple and Wonderful.

Small thoughts for your Monday morning :)

So I've been slacking on the weekly photos. Sorry. Pretty much my belly is getting big. It's tight. It moves. It rumbles. It aches. It's veiny. And this mommy really wishes what's inside of it would makes its debut. I am 3 weeks and 4 days to due date.

And here is our check list we are working on:

Baby's room finished- check
Stroller and car seat- out of box but not installed. semi-check
Get daiper bag- check
Pack diaper bag- uncheck
Pack mommy and daddy's bag- uncheck
Write thank you cards. semi-check (work in progress)

I guess those are the main things. The house stays, for the most part, picked up and cleaned. We (I won't take full credit, Ryan has been doing really good about cleaning)try to keep it that way because you never know when this baby could come, right?

Tonight, I plan to work on more thank you cards and get the baby's bag packed and start ours. I am very aware that it could be 1 week, 2 weeks, or 4 weeks until this baby comes but I can only be prepared :)

Ergo Happy!

I just bought our baby carrier! An Ergo and I am so very excited about it. They are a bit expensive so I am happy that I found one on Craigs list for half the price and it's gently used!

I love the color and I can't wait to put it to some good use!

We did register for a different carrier at Target and we happen to get three of them at the shower but after reading many reviews I think this one is going to work best. So, we are taking the others back to get this one.

A baby shower :)

We had just the sweetest baby shower on Sunday. Hosted by a wonderful group of family and friends. They most definitely outdid themselves!

We are all set now! All we need is a baby :)

We got almost everything put away and the car seat and stroller put together!

Here are a few pictures from this wonderful day!

Oh! And I can't forget about my 34 week picture. The belly is getting big!

I have been a bit of a slacker this week but it's not entirely my fault. Our laptop at home has decided to run a little funny so I have been steering clear until I can get it to our computer dude.

I made the cutest little banner for the babies room last night and we got some more things hung on the walls. Again, I will post pictures of this but not today. Here is what the banner looks like except it's green and blue (to match the room).

And then Ryan hung these cards up last night and they look so good!!! We put them in white frames that we got from ikea awhile back. They are going above the bookshelf that Ryan is going to make the baby :)

It's special to me that Ryan made our first bookshelf and now is making the babies. Being married to a handy man definitely has its perks!

We have a doctor's appointment today and of course I'm so excited! Hope you all have a blessed and happy Thursday.

I can't stop dreaming of cooler weather, rain, and a certain little baby that is growing inside me. All of this equals FALL!! I can't wait. It is my favorite season.

This pregnancy has been so easy but lately it's hard to keep my mind on tract and focused. I find myself getting irritable and anxious for this little one to arrive. I have to remind myself i have SIX weeks left (give or take of course). So it's in my prayers to stay focused and healthy up until this baby wants to make it's debut.

I've been dreaming of buying some non maternity clothes. So, I did it. I just made a few purchases from the Gap online Sale section. 3 out of the 4 purchased are NOT maternity!!! Some of you may think I'm crazy and that I should wait until this baby comes to see if I'm going to loose the weight but, let me tell you something... I WILL and I am so excited!!!

So when this little package gets delivered, I am going to hang up these dear clothes and smile.

I have my 33 week picture taken but not should be coming in the next day or so and probably with my 34 week picture since that is now where I am.

Hope all of you are having a lovely Monday :)

Hello! Last week was a bit busy, sorry for the lack of posts. We went to Austin mid-week for my great Aunt Patti's funeral and then it was catching up the rest of the week. Austin was a quick and great trip. Ryan got to meet more family that I don't get to see very often and the Catholic funeral was special and beautiful. Aunt Patti is my Nana's sister. She was such a sweet person. She has had a long battle with cancer and other illnesses and I am so happy she is finally in heaven and in peace.

This is a bit late but last Sunday little Patrick Blaise was baptized.

And a beautiful picture of Gramps and Patrick :)

That's all for now! More coming soon..
