Two Down, One to Go!

This post is about a week late, but I thought I would put it up anyway. I finally made it to the Third Trimester! Wha Hooo! Reality is setting in and I am starting to get really excited, but really anxious at the same time. I keep having these bizarre dreams. Last night for example, I had this dream that I left "Addison" (that was her name in the dream) in her car seat in the trunk of the car overnight. I was in the house and I looked at the clock and realized it was 6 am and I needed to go get her "up". Like it was no big deal that I left her in the TRUNK OVERNIGHT! A few weeks ago I had a dream that we went over to my parents house on a Saturday and just left the baby in the crib because she was asleep. Well we stayed at my parents until about noon when my mom asked, "where's the baby?" Then I responded, "Oh she's fine. We just left her home because she was sleeping." After that we decided to go back to the house and when we got there the baby was dead! How horrible huh? Do you think I have a little anxiety about not knowing how to take care of a baby? Of course I would think that I am smart enough to know that you don't leave your kid in the trunk! I'm sure I will figure it all out, but some days I worry that I won't know what to do. Well I didn't want to post this picture, but for those of you that would like to see me expand right before your eyes:
Be nice, I realize I have tripled in size since my last picture. It's ok though, I like my butt this big ;)

What Saturdays are For

This weekend has been especially nice and somewhat relaxing. I have spent the past couple of weeks in Richfield for work and it was so nice to finally be home! Being 3 hours away and pregnant..not the best experience I've ever had. Brian and I started off the day by heading to Target and Babies R Us. Yup folks, we are finally registered! I am going to have to go online and add a few more items. I sort of lost patience in Babies R Us and didn't finish registering. I mean do they really need to give you the 30 minute spill about how to register? Just give me the bar code scanner and send me on my way already!
Once we got home I got to work on a few of my projects that I have been putting off. Here it is 11:30 at night and all I have to show for my Saturday are these two projects.

The first one I worked on was a Car Seat Canopy. I could not believe how incredibly EASY this was to make. Anyone who goes out and spends 30-40 dollars on one of these is CRAZY! I think it turned out so cute. I am a little bit obsessed with black and pink. Can ya tell by seeing the blanket that I made in the background? Notice the nursery is still blue. It won't be for long! The bedding set should be coming in the mail this week and I cannot wait to get the room finished! That will be next weekend's project...
The second project was not as easy as the first. Since I have started being a little obsessed with bows and girlie things, I have struggled to find a way to store them. I tried putting them in a basket and the bows would get all smashed and messed up. I came up with this little wall hanging to do the trick.
Notice how I am already running out of room to hang the bows on. Did I mention I was obsessed? I guess this will control my obsession. Once I run out of room on the fabric strips, I will have to stop making so many hair accessories!Well to finish up the post I have to put this picture up. Such a silly boy, he makes me laugh! I hope everyone had as nice of a weekend as we did. Oh and don't forget to vote for a name on the right side of my blog page. We need all the help we can get naming our little one!

Just because I feel like it

Today I feel like telling everyone how much I love my husband. He has been so good to me and I just want everyone to know how lucky I am. Anyone who puts up with a hormonal agitated woman inching into her third trimester needs some honorable mention right? Thanks honey for everything and mostly for just agreeing with every insane, rude or sometimes accurate remark I make. I know you may be just be keeping the peace, but I certainly am grateful for such a peaceful home right now.

Trying out a new Hobby

Over the past few months I have been eying cute girlie things. There are so many cute things out there! I can't believe how expensive everything is though... It's a good thing that I am a really big cheapo or we might be broke by now. Well a couple of weeks ago I decided to give myself a new hobby. I went to Hobby Lobby of course and bought one of these:

Then I decided to buy a lot of this stuff (all 50% off of course):The finished product? Lots and lots of these:
What do you think? Is this little girl going to be girlie enough?
