Happy Thanksgiving!

HaApPy ThAnKsGiViNg!
This is seriously my favorite holiday. I love the family gatherings and stuffing my face all day long while watching football. The best part about being a Cowboys fan is that we ALWAYS play on Thanksgiving. So glad my jersey still fits and that I’ll be able to continue wearing it until this season is over (well at least that’s what I’m hoping).
Geoffrey (my husband- not sure if I’ve ever mentioned his name) and I have been off this whole week. Catching up on shopping, homework, and house cleaning. We also went out of town to purchase our first baby items!!! It was so exciting to walk around Babies R Us planning what furniture we want in the nursery. We bought a crib and a car seat. The dresser and chair will be our next purchases. Here is a look at what we picked out.

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I can’t wait to decorate for Christmas. Last holiday season before our little one joins us. Sooo exciting!!!!!

Chalkboard tutorial

A lot of people have told me that they love the chalkboard idea. I saw it on Pinterest a while back and found a tutorial for it. I absolutely love my chalkboard and will eventually hang it in the nursery. I haven’t started putting the nursery together and cant wait will have to wait until we get an offer on our house. Otherwise I will wait until Jan/Feb when I decide that I can’t wait any longer.

Here is how I made my chalkboard.

I found this mirror for $10 at Goodwill. You can use pretty much use any frame with a wooden or mirror back.
I bought Primer, white paint, and chalkboard paint (I used the spray paint at first but wasn’t happy with the results so I went back and bought the can of paint to roll on). I primed both the frame and mirror and then painted them white.

 

Then I painted the mirror with the chalkboard paint (from a can). After it dried, I added another layer of paint.
I put the mirror back on the frame and voilà!

15 Weeks

We had another appt and got to see baby this week!! It’s so cool to see how quickly the baby is growing. I feel so blessed and cannot wait to find out what the baby is. That wont be until next month though… I can hardly wait… is it December yet?? I know alot of people who found out the gender around 16 weeks, so Im bummed (and a little jealous) that we have to wait another month. Im sure it will fly by though.. I hope.
Here is our little bean. He/She is hunched over. Sorry its a little blurry.

Nursery Ideas

I have been imagining what the baby’s room would look like since before I got pregnant. I love love the white furniture and gray walls with some accent colors depending on the gender. I can’t wait to know where we will be when we have the baby…hopefully in a bigger house with more room. I would hate to move right after making a nursery perfect. But, thats the chance we took when we decided to list our house right now. Here are some of my favorite nurseries.

14 Weeks

So, I’ve been doing good with posting every week. Lets see if I can get the board together every week too. I am so happy to be in my second trimester!! I feel pretty good, except feeling so sleepy all the time. I am obsessed with Vanilla Yogurt (as well as fruit)… Like I can seriously eat a whole BIG container of yogurt in one sitting and pretty much lick the bowl clean. And when I run out, I panic and rush to the store for more… at least it’s somewhat healthy right? Lol.

How far along? 14 weeks! Yahoo!

Maternity clothes? Not really. Im wearing mostly bigger clothes.

Stretch marks? None

Sleep? Sleeping pretty good. I feel like I could sleep for days though.

Best moment this week?  Halloween!

Miss Anything? Having a glass of wine on Halloween night (something I always did while watching a movie).

Movement? None yet but excited to feel baby soon.

Food cravings? VANILLA YOGURT and fruit

Anything making you queasy or sick? Hamburgers, steak, and baked potatoes.
