I am now almost 26 weeks!! woohoo! We have started working on the nursery but there is so much more I want!!! I'm sure every mom is like that!

We have painted the room yellow and we have all white furniture. Thomas' bedding is the Kasey bedding from Pottery Barn Kids.

My mom also bought us this mobile:

We bought the blue gingham curtains like you can kinda see in the background above. We just got this chandelier yesterday:

I also bought a few oopsy daisy too pictures to hang on the walls. BUT I still want all of this:

Nothing is too good for your first born...right?? :) That's what I am going to keep telling Tom!

Julie's baby shower

A couple of weekends ago, I had the pleasure of co-hosting a baby shower for my best friend, Julie. She is pregnant with her second little girl so we did a small monogram shower for her.

Here were the yummy cupcakes from Muddy's complete with cupcake toppers made by Natalie at They were soo cute.

I didn't get a picture of the finished product but then again, I also left a fruit tray in the refrigerator for the entire shower...pregnancy brain is in full effect.

This past weekend I turned 30. Yeppers, I always imagined a HUGE thirtieth birthday party but with being knocked up and all, it didn't sound that appealing. So, Tom took me shopping both Friday and Saturday. We also went out to eat for lunch AND dinner on Saturday both my choices. Sunday my mom had us over for my favorite...chicken and dumplings! Of course, I only got pictures of the latter.

24 weeks!

Nice action shot :)

I've got to get back into taking pictures!!

All in all, 30 isn't so bad so far :)
