The Weekend is Over

We had a fabulous holiday weekend enjoying the hot outside weather with friends and family! We had some much needed pool time, enjoyed a fun day at the lake, slept late, and ate too much food. Who knows, this could be our last weekend childless!

Take a look at a few snapshots of the weekend! I recently got a new camera. The picture quality on the blog should be better now.

We ended the weekend watching the I Love Lucy episode 'Lucy Goes to the Hospital.' It is hilarious! You should watch it. I was hoping it would inspire us to go on to the hospital!

Hope you had a good weekend too!

The Finishing Touches


Happy Weekend! The baby room is now complete (minus the baby).

My crafty cousin made these curtains that match the quilt she crafted earlier.
Along with the matching pillow sham.

I love it all!

Here are the pillows sister sewed and shared on her blog here.

I also found a baby book that goes along with the theme of pretty colors and birds.

You can see the rest of the room by clicking here.

Have a good Memorial Day Weekend!

38 Weeks and Waiting

Hi friends! Yes, I'm still pregnant. I only have 2 weeks to go, and hopefully no more.

I'm actually feeling pretty good. My hands still bother me, and it is hard to pick up things. But overall, I'm feeling good. Maybe I'm feeling better because I'm done with work! That's always a good feeling. It's a great accomplishment to retire twice before I'm 30. I've been enjoying my days by trying to walk and swim this baby out! My summer weather is here, and I love it!

Hope you have a good 2 weeks! As for me, I'll be here, just waiting for the time to come!

Happy Anniversary!

Today, May 17th, Nick and I are celebrating our 3rd anniversary!

Nick and I met at the Auburn/Mississippi State football game when we were freshman at Auburn in the fall of 2004. We started dating that following January, and we have been together ever since! We have enjoyed many things together. Take a look at some pictures throughout the years.

Nick, thank you for being a wonderful husband! I'm looking forward to sharing many more years with you! I'm excited that in three short weeks we will become parents. I know you will be an excellent father too!

4 Weeks Baby, 4 Weeks!

Here we are with 4 weeks left! I'm down to weekly visits at the doctor, and I'm getting to that uncomfortable stage. Nick and I can feel the baby so well when she moves. We keep playing 'name that body part,' but we aren't very good at telling if we can feel an elbow or a knee. We can't wait to meet her!

36 weeks
My biggest craving lately has been Coke. Diet will do, but I prefer a real Coke-Cola. Yellow mustard is another. I normally like mustard, but these days I can't get enough on my turkey sandwich. I've also been wanting sweets.

I made this strawberry milkshake with left over strawberries from my pavlova and vanilla ice cream.
I made a Hershey's chocolate cake. The recipe is on the back of the cocoa package. Nick doesn't like chocolate, so yes I am the only one eating this. I'll probably finish it by the weekend.
I've also made coke floats. Yum!
So if I start puffing up more you know I can't blame it all on pregnancy.

I have also been trying to walk and swim a lot. It has been hot these past couple of days, and the pool feels wonderful! I even bought a new float today. It's pink in honor of baby girl!

I hope you are keeping cool! Summer is just about here!

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Happy May! After the devastating storms, I am happy to see some hot sunny weather. I hope the bad weather is gone for good.

A dozen roses from our backyard!
I have recently changed the header on my blog. All of these pictures remind me of May and summer time (except the Auburn Champ picture; I just couldn't leave that one out of the bunch). It might also be the last header without our baby girl in the picture!

Reasons I'm happy it is the month of May:

#1: I only have about 5 weeks of pregnancy left. It is wearing me out!

#2: Our anniversary is in a few weeks! The beginning of May always reminds me of the fun week we had celebrating our wedding.

#3: School is out this month. I only have 3 weeks left in the school year!

#4: May is one month closer to summer. I love summer!

#5: It is time to pull out the flip flops and summer dresses!

#6: Magnolias are blooming. This also reminds me of our wedding because magnolias were used as decoration at our rehearsal dinner. Nick and I recently took some magnolias from a vacant house in our neighborhood. It has been vacant for over a year, so I don't think anyone will miss them.

I hope you have a good month filled with joy and beautiful flowers!
