Manhattan and I are very spoiled. Sean bought us this and I am so in love! Thank you baby :)

Fun Projects

Can I just say that I am absolutely, positively, ObSeSsEd with Hobby Lobby?! Oh my goodness! Magan introduced me to this fabulous place and I am 100% hooked! So, I saw this wreath on the Better Homes and Gardens website that I really liked and normally I am someone who just thinks that something looks fun but I don't attempt to actually make it...BUT today I branched out and made a wreath! An actual wreath! I am so excited about it! All of the supplies came from HL and the total project cost me $16.50!

Another couple of fun projects that both my mom and I have been working on are for little Manhattan. My mom found a bassinet for $5 at a garage sale that was in great shape but wasn't really my taste. I showed my mom what I wanted and she offered to help me make this skirt to cover the whole thing! It's about 3/4 of the way done it's just missing a BIG bow to go in the front :)

I searched and searched for "shabby chic" crib bedding and couldn't find anything that I remotely liked for our little princess. I of course told my mom about my dilemma and she said that she would be happy to make it for me! My mom is just amazing! Because so many people have asked to see the progress on the nursery I thought I would show the samples of the fabrics and trims that will be used to create Manhattan's one-0f-a-kind bedding! Her crib is a distressed sage green and I think that it will all tie together really well. I promise as SOON as everything is complete we will post pictures!

It's been a little while since I have blogged and I thought I would catch you up on a couple of happenings.

Amanda had her BABY!!! Little Ronin was born on September 12th and weighed 8lbs 2oz and is as cute as can be and I absolutely adore him! And I must say that Amanda looks just FaBuLoUs!

We celebrated Sean's 25th birthday with family and friends--it was a lot of fun! He even got to indulge himself with TWO ice cream cakes from Baskin Robbins which are his absolute favorite.
I've entered into my third and final trimester and I am starting to feel HUGE and a lot more UnCoMfOrTaBlE! Luckily the countdown has begun and the end is in sight! We even signed up for our Labor class this month at the hospital! Sean is really looking forward to a fun filled Saturday with 6 hours of absolutely no football :) I told him that I've had to do endure this pregnancy thing for 9 months, he can survive one day! Here are a couple of pics of me at 29 weeks. (Yes, I know that the first pic is a little blurry but I just had to show the heels! They are about the only thing that makes me feel remotely attractive these days!)
