7 weeks and 5 days to go...

these last few weeks are going fast....hallelujah!i am getting a little more excited everyday to have my new little girl in my arms...theres this excitement you have thinking about a new baby when you decide to get pregnant,and while trying,but once you ARE pregnant it kinda dies off for awhile amidst all the hormones and emotional ups and downs,and the physical aches and pains,and the long wait in general....until the excitement is coming back now that im seeing the end,and the reality of her arrival is right around the corner.All I can think about now is that magical moment when i get to see and meet her for the first time,and that special feeling you get while bonding with a brand new baby.Theres nothing in the world that can compare to that feeling...the pride and love you feel as you show her off,and the sweet little moments that you have to savor because they grow so fast.

32 weeks in this picture-taken on Monday,i was all dolled up cuz Josh was taking me out for a date day(: we went to the movies(first time weve done that all year)and saw CAPTAIN AMERICA (great movie,and very clean!)and he took me to lunch at the Bamboo of our fvorites we hadnt been there all year either!We've been very busy this summer and very focused on NOT spending extra money,so it was really nice.Then today we went to the furniture store and picked out the most awesome dining set that we have been waiting forever to buy,and we will pick it up in the next few weeks(: It was so fun,the first furniture we've ever picked out brand new,for our awesome new house we are having so much fun decorating(:

home decorating...

this picture got deleted from the end of my post...its a picture of teeny tiny(new baby)... its par of the collage at the end of the post

this is a project ive had in mind for awhile now,the centerpeice for our bedroom,and while heidi was here we finally got it done(:

its a start anyway...havt gotten anything else hung up yet and not sure wha else im gonna do,but im just taking my time since i finally have a house of my own to do whatever i want with...its fun(:

there is a big open wall in my upstairs den/living room,and ive had this awesome set of frames for awhile,just slowly adding the perfect pictures to them...

please disregard the messy bookcase...thats still i work in progress... alot of our books are still packed

my little cuteness looking all grown up...why do they have to grow soooo fast?:(

adventures with heidi

Mckinleys long-awaited jacuzzi bath with heidi...she couldnt convince heidi to get in with her...but she sure had fun swimmin while heidi soaked her feet...she was SO excited,you shouldve heard the whoopin and hollering and singing coming from my master bathroom that night...she was out of control excited and kept heidi in stitches...

I plan to get a big tropical flowery-bamboo-y type picture to put above the jacuzzi bath...

josh took us out to eat at the chowder house(our favorite) before taking heidi back to the airport...mckinley was a little under the weather that day,coming down with a cold,which is why she looks so sad in these pics...she had fun coloring with daddy though

one last sister picture before the sad parting... my grandma,what large teeth you have...

McKinleys room

Slowly but steadily i have been conquering my decorationg projects ...i will be posting them as i get them finished...this week i worked on McKinleys bedroom.

She has blue carpet(through the entire house)so we couldnt get TOO girly but i had already decided a springy flower birdy type theme would be cuter anyways...were not really pinky-purpley princessy type girls anyhow.

I had found this cute little plack at HOBBY LOBBY in texas back in January,and had been saving it for her room...

the wooden flowers i picked up at a garage sale this summer for a dollar...this is above her closet door.

then at Joannes this past week Heidi and I stumbled upon a bunch of clearance frames and cute little birdies....they fit right i just have to get some pics in them...perhaps some pictures of cousins will look nice.

wall of frames above her bed

we found this cute new quilt at freds for ten bucks on sale,and it happens to be just the size for her new toddler bed that lance and dana gave us(thankyou!)i was gonna make her a new quilt,but she loved this one and so did i(: some more cute wallhangings from joannes....also on clearance...we lucked out!they all matched our theme!!!i think we need to find a colorful border to put around the top of the room now to draw it all together.

so we have this boring brown blackout curtain hanging in her room to keep the light out and it needed a little something... we made a felt garden to grow around the bottom...she helped me with this,and is quite proud of our work(:

32 Weeks Pregnant - Week by Week Pregnancy Calendar: "Your Baby in Week 32 of Pregnancy
What's up with your baby? She's starting to get ready for her big debut, tipping the scales at almost four pounds and topping out at just about 19 inches. In these past few weeks, it's all about practice, practice, practice as she hones the skills she'll need to thrive outside the womb — from swallowing and breathing to kicking and sucking. And speaking of sucking, your little one has been able to suck her thumb for a while now. Something else to note: As more and more fat accumulates under your baby's skin, she's becoming less transparent and more opaque."
