The Nursery Debut

The nursery is finally done! Well, its been in a state of pretty much done for a long time now, but i finally got the last finishing touches I was waiting for! I may still fiddle around a bit of course, I'm thinking of tying some cute dark pink ribbon around the curtains to make them more decorative, but for the most part I LOVE THIS ROOM! Seriously, I think its my favorite room in our house. So here are some pictures...

My mom made the cute quilt hanging on the chair.

The sun is too bright behind the curtains, but they are the same lime green that is everywhere else in the room.

The sign says "I am a Child of God"

And here are some close-ups of the paintings that flank the window. My very beautiful and talented niece Chelsie painted these for me and they are just what the room needed to be complete. They bring all the colors from the rug and ceiling fan and everything and pull them together with the pink and green. Love them!

32 Weeks

Yesterday was my 32 weeks doctors appointment. All is going well. I finally got my Rhogam shot over with. The baby is very active and growing well, and thankfully my weight is on track, its hard to say that when you see the numbers ever increasing, but so far I'm doing pretty well this pregnancy. The aches and pains continue to get worse, but I'm surviving. The heartburn has increased to a new high, so my doctor put me on a new medicine yesterday that will help keep that in check I hope. I have not been sleeping well at all the last little while, but with the help of an occasional unisom I am keeping up with life. At the appointment they scheduled me for my c-section on March 5th at 7:30 am! Yay! We are still hoping we can coax her out a little earlier, due to some insurance issues, but at least I have an end date in sight. Starting my next appointment my doctor will begin checking me and note any progress so we can hopefully document enough progress to get her out on February 26th. But, either way no more than 7 more weeks of waiting! I'm trying to stay busy with the kids and with my Lia Sophia business to keep me from going nuts while I wait. I have a great time just sitting and watching my belly contort when I have down time. I am feeling huge and beginning to outgrow some of my maternity clothes and can't imagine that the baby will most likely double her weight before she's born! I know I think this everytime, but seriously, how can there be room enough for that??

Ugh, and I should really remember to put makeup on before I take my belly pictures. Please ignore. :)

Lia Sophia

As I've mentioned briefly in a couple of posts, I'm just starting my own business selling Lia Sophia jewelry. I had my first party yesterday and it went pretty well, I have another party today too! Plus 4 more before I take a break for having the baby, hopefully my huge belly and my legs and feet will stand up to that test. I'm trying to get my business off on the right foot before I have to take time off so it won't be as hard to start back up when I get back. I like that it is keeping me busy so I have less time to just sit around and stew and countdown the days until baby girl makes her arrival. SOOOO, if anyone is in the market for jewelry talk to me! You can host a party and get good deals on stuff, or you can just order through me. The January sale is especially good, so all you girls out there should tell your husbands to call me and get a good deal on Valentine's day gifts! I'm not going to be an obnoxious salesperson, don't worry about that, but if you buy stuff you will be helping me pay hospital bills. ;) I have catalogs you can look through if anyone is interested, or you can go to and click on "Our Jewelry" and browse the catalog that way. Wish me luck!

The New Me

I thought a new year, a new decade, and a big fat pregnant me deserved some new hair. Its not really that drastic of a cut, but I love all the layers and the color is fun and DARK. I thought about doing bangs but decided that with a baby weeks away I better keep it simple so I won't hate it when I have no energy to do my hair. The pictures don't really do it justice, but you get the idea.
