Post 186: Neglected.

Oh dear blog I realize I have neglected you. I hope you understand it will only get worse these next couple of months...

Today is my 26th birthday (woo hoo) and today is also the day the MIL gets in town to help me and the husband adjust to our new up coming lives as parents! Baby Lucas is not here yet but I have a feeling it is any day now. At my last doctor visit I was told he was measuring nearly 9 lbs with two more weeks of growing to go!! Ah! Sooo, we have to make the decision for c-section, induction, or waiting it out. I am just hoping he decides to make his own appearance in the next few days. *finger crossed*
(Lucas William @ 31 weeks)

I have managed to make some progress on the nursery and hope to share that with you all when I am not too lazy to take some decent pictures. But for now here is little sneak peak of what a took a couple of weeks ago...
My 'quilt' that turned out to be a blanket due to lack of time and energy to do much else to it...

Well, enough for now! Hope you all have a fantastic week :)

Post 185: Hot Air Balloons!

This weekend the husband and I accompanied some friends to watch hot air balloons! The balloons were so big and beautiful!At night they were so beautiful! We got to see a bunch of them glow and it was quite a sight.
I only wish I were smart enough to charge the camera before we went! Maybe next time.

Post 184: Last Minute Projects

I finally finished Luke's crib 'quilt'...It was supposed to be a quilt at least, but I got lazy and it ended up being a patch blanket. It is cute none the less (if you ask me). :D
I'll post nursery pictures next week so stay tuned!

Sooo, nearly every woman I know is expecting a baby in the next month or two so I have been sewing my tail off trying to finish up shower gifts before baby Luke gets here! It has actually been quite fun to work on some quick easy projects. I like seeing the results so soon! It is also a fantastic way to use up all the bits and pieces of fabric I have gathering dust.

(I was going to post more pictures but they are all blurry!) My mind and photography skills went out the door once pregnancy hit. ah!

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!

Post 182: Baby Belly and Some Babbling

This month sure has been a busy one! I have been meaning to keep up on posts but have not found the time. Hopefully I can start to make up for it this week.

So a few random babbles...

The husband and I managed to drag ourselves out in the heat and humidity to watch Fourth of July fireworks. I didn't think anything of it and just brought along a picnic blanket. Bad idea. I forget how hard it is to sit on the ground let alone get up with all this extra baby on me! Speaking of baby, at my last appointment (according to the ultrasound) Luke is measuring 39 weeks, 7lbs and 14oz (with 4 more weeks to go)!! "He's a biggun" as my dad would say.

36weeks 3 days

On Saturday some of my fantastic girlfriends threw me and Luke a beautiful baby shower at the most ADORABLE tea room (I wish I would have remembered my camera). The food was DELICIOUS and I have been craving it ever since, but my husband refuses to accompany me to some place so girly. Sigh.

Friday the husband won tickets to Vince Neil (ridiculous). I passed and went to the movies to see Despicable Me (Totally adorable movie by the way). It was my first 3D movie so I felt all giggly and excited about it. On the way home I hit a pot hole...maybe a crater and bent two rims on my car. That was an expensive mistake!

I also had a little summer book exchange with my BFF Leanne of Folk.
We sent each other 3 books from our stash. The ones I received are:

1. The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde
2. Pavilion of Women by Pearl Buck
3. Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky

Annnd, along with the books, to accompany all of the ridiculous Twilight hoopla, she sent me these lovely buttons.

Is that not hilarious! I'm all about Team Luke and have buttons for my hospital posse to sport. That is, as long as they are not too embarrassed, hehe.

Post 181: Happy 4th of July Weekend!!

Happy 4th of July to all my fellow American bloggers! I hope you all have a lovely weekend full of festivities. This will be my first Independence Day celebrated away from family. I have decided I am too pregnant for the 8 hour drive. Sooo I will be celebrating by painting my master bedroom and straightening the house for the arrival of Luke and the in-laws.
