I got a new job!!!!!! AND I love it!!!!! Its a huge adjustment trying to learn a new job while 35 weeks preg. Its also a huge adjustment to work a full 40 hour work week. Before I was bartending/waitressing maybe 20 hours a week. Then I cut back to 12 hours a week because it was getting hard on me being this far along in my pregnancy. So I went from 12 hours a week to 40. Ah! I've been struggling this week with trying to get everything on my lists accomplished. By the time I get home from work in the evening at about 5:30 it feels like the day is almost over. And I'm EXHAUSTED!!!!! When the alarm goes off at 6 a.m. I seriously feel like I only slept for an hour or so. I am also trying to get our apartment ready for a baby. Crazy! This is why I'm so behind in posting! I haven't even told you guys all about my baby shower yet! Hopefully this week goes a little smoother and I will have time to do some posting.... fingers crossed. Until then I leave you with a little bit of eye candy.........

35 weeks baby!

Now I'm off to take a nap and finish packing my hospital bags just in case somebody wants to make an appearance 5 weeks early. Fingers crossed he at least gives me 3 more weeks to get ready :-).

Turns out I CAN Sew

I recently made our little baby love a few cuddly blankets to go with his owl themed nursery. I cheated and bought fabric panels instead of quilting the front myself. I don't have the patience for that anymore!!!! The picture quality isn't the greatest, but I think you can tell how cuddly they are.

Now we just need a sweet little baby boy to snuggle up to these blankets with!

Maternity Session #2!!!!!!













Which one is your favorite? These were taken when I was 32 weeks pregnant. I'm almost 34 weeks now!!!!! I was originally going to order one in a 16x20, but I already have one that large from my last maternity session. I'm entertaining the idea of choosing 3 of my favorites and ordering them in a small size and placing in a long skinny frame. Thoughts????

I've had a rough go lately. I got put on bed rest two weeks ago because of an ultrasound screw up at my doctor's office. I was only on bed rest for one week, but man it was miserable! We found out yesterday that the previous ultrasound is wrong and our sweet baby T is a healthy 4 pounds 14 ounces and already has a head full of hair! I'm thinking somebody is going to take after his daddy and have super curl hair. Fingers crossed!!!!!! 

I've got lots to blog about and lots to catch up on around the house. Stay tuned!!!!!
