Our Day!

Thanksgiving turned out to be a great day for us. I was a little afraid it was going to be blah and boring since we were not going anywhere... (the baby is only two weeks away), but it was good. We went and ate lunch with a friend of Casey's and his family. They were so sweet to invite us over and we were able to enjoy a delicious Thanksgiving meal instead of going to Western Sizzlin (our original plan). Then we had a little "surprise" visit from some of my good friends from home! (so glad you could come.. that was a wonderful treat!)

Me and Dani
With her sweet boys- Josiah and Ethan!

We had decided a while back that we would go out to eat and to see a movie on Thanksgivng to have something to look forward to. We drove all around and there was nothing open! I mean NOTHING, not even McDonalds. So finally we find TGI Fridays is open and we grab a quick appetizer in order to make the movie. Unfortunately the movie was sold out when we got there! HA! We ended up coming home, watching a movie off of itunes and having a piece of pie!
Overall, I think it was a much better day than we had anticipated!
mmmmmmm..... Casey and I did end the night on a high-note!
His favorite, Lemon IceBox Pie!

On Another Note: I'm Still Growing!

Here I am at 7 weeks and here I am at 38 weeks

Obviously if you know me you know I didn't really WANT to post these photos... BUT, I know how many people are wanting to see. Hopefully I won't gain too much more. I've been fortunate to only gain in my stomach so I really can't complain too much! Sorry if you were NOT wanting to see "belly pics".. (me either really). It is hard to believe she is so close to being here. It won't be long until I'm posting pictures of her sweet little face!!

it's getting close!

Well... I'm enjoying some time with my feet piled up on pillows!
The "uncomfortable" stage of swelling and insomnia has just started (which is a blessing considering I only have a couple of weeks left to go)
Other than that things have been good!
Thanksgiving will be odd not getting to travel home to see family but it will be fine. Casey and I will enjoy the time to be together I know!

Well, I have finally finished with the Nursery. The curtain rod is complete, the curtains are hanging, and the room is pretty much ready! Here are a few pictures...

I love the curtain rod!

This is not the actual bedspread. This is just to get an idea of what it will look like. I looked everywhere for a white quilt and finally found one at on sale. So this down comforter is just a little glimpse what the real thing may look like!

Here is a view from the door way. I think the curtains make all the difference! I'm very excited about how they turned out!

Well, I hope you like how it turned out. I am pretty excited. Now all we have to do is get little Anna here! Three more weeks. We are down to the count now...

changing gears

Meet GeeGee!

This was my favorite stuffed animal in the world! (notice how his little nose is practically missing from all the nose-kisses). Mom put him in a shadowbox for me to hang up in the nursery. Isn't that the sweetest thing you've ever seen? I can't wait to put it up. I have nothing on the walls yet (as you may have noticed in the above pictures) but this will have to have a super special place! I LOVE it!! I'm planning a few wall decorations. I need to get going on those, Little Baby could be here any day now!

Mr. Clean has met his match: ME!
This house is beginning to look like we're expecting a Royal visit from the Queen! But we're just eagerly awaiting our "little princess" I guess!
I'm discovering Oxi-Clean for the first time and LOVING it.
I am cleaning up, cleaning out, and cleaning EVERYTHING! Yes, I spent probably twenty minutes cleaning the refridgerator (and that was just the outside of it!) That probably makes my fridge sound gross... but it isn't. I doubt if Casey will even notice a difference.. but I guess that is what "nesting" is all about! Spending hours cleaning things that are already pretty clean!
I'm loving this!
I'm starting at the back door and working my way through the house. In just a few short hours of today I've cleaned the laundry room and half the kitchen..haha!
What fun... well, the finished project will be!

something is up!

I think Huntley knows something is up!
Maybe he senses that there is going to be a little somebody here in 5 weeks! He sure has been "needy" lately!
We don't ever let him inside (he loves outside) but he has just been so sweet and mopey these last few days that I decided to let him come in He just sat beside my chair like this the whole time...(which wasn't too long- I really think he'd just assume me come live outside with him).
He so sweet... don't you just want to kiss his little head? Poor puppy!
He's in for a change but I think he's going to LOVE it! Especially when little Anna is old enought to play with him. I suspect they will be big buddies!
We are all in for a big change and it is so hard to believe that it's only 5 weeks away!
We are getting ready!
