After the Shower comes a.....WEDDING!

After the showering of presents were made on Laura...I was off to JEN'S WEDDING!
Miss Jen is one of my co-workers, and I was so excited to see her on her BIG DAY. It was equally fun being at a wedding and not having anything to drink. Weird, but true. People watching can be SO fun. ANYWHO - the persons in the picture below are myself, the Bride, Lauren, and Lee - just a fancy group of co-workers.

A little Showering...

So - I had a wonderful weekend that consisted of one of best friends being showered with wonderful gifts for her wedding. Below are some of the pics that my camera took...I have terrible photography skills and they didn't come out to great. But, you can get the gist of what went on. Cake eating. Present opening. Picture taking. I can't wait until after Laura is married and we can use all her fun new stuff :P

Here is the Lovely Bride with the bow-hat. So Pretty!


The girls- My camera was being pathetic and I had to make the pic Black and White

Clothes Dividers...:)

So here are the Clothes Dividers I made for Gray-man's closet. I used the leftover paint from his room, and it worked out perfectly! If I try to occupy myself with an actual project, then I'm not buying him loads and loads of seems to be working for the time being....

We did look for rocking chairs (which was on our "to-do" list this weekend), and are probably going to purchase one of the ones from Cracker Barrel. A white one, to go with his white and blue room. Dan and I are not the easiest people to please - we literally went into every store to try these suckers out. We even went back to Babies R Us to make sure that we really didn't want a regular old glider (which upon first glance, we knew STILL wasn't for us)

I'm hoping that the regular old Rocking chair will be comfortable enough to sit in for long periods of time. I will be on the search for some very comfy seat cusions to purchase along with the actual rocking chair. Something else for me to research. YEY!

Ice Cream Social Friday

Yes, I am writing a blog post about Ice Cream Social Friday. Why Not?
Since I was in charge of this social extravaganza, I am currently FEET away from an incredible amount of DELICIOUSNESS. And it's all I'm thinking about. All this said Deliciousness is right next to little Gray-Man's Easter Egg. Yep. THAT EASTER EGG. I believe Dan has finally decided to throw it away. It was just so cute.

Hope everyone is having a great Thursday!

NURSERY UPDATE: Dan and I were pretty excited this past weekend to finish painting the Nursery. I would upload pictures, but I'm thinking I want to wait until it's almost done for the revealing. I think it's more fun that way. HA

Gray's First Blanket

HOW CUTE! Gray-man's first blankie.....everyone can ooh and ahhh. lol.
One of Dan's co-workers had left this lovely gift bag for him at his desk(the co-workers wife had made the blanket). Not as if I had enough impatience with getting the nursery done, I can see this placed perfectly along his crib....sigh..If only this weekend could get here quicker!

Side note - I am still in the process of figuring out what header/background I like for the blog...So if you see a lot of changes in the next couple days/weeks...that's just me playing around with stuff until I find the one that really works for me.

The Bunny Weekend

The weekend most definitely went by WAYYY to quick! As it always does. Dan and I are in for the rest of the evening, gearing up for the baseball season to start (even if it is the Yankees/Red Sox) we’ll take what we can get.
Mom and Dad B came over for Easter dinner, and LUCKY MOM B – Gray-man was FINALLY kicking while she was here, so she was able to feel him sucker punch me. Gray’s play-time usually resides between the hours of 10pm and 5am. No joke. I’ve been on the couch twice this week with some sleep deprivation issues that he’s left me with. All for a good cause and gearing me up for what’s really in store when he does arrive.
Saturday, Dan and I colored eggs for our little guy, weird to think that he will be able to do this with us next year. AHHHH!!!!Funny though, we decorated an Egg for him (as you can see below) and NOW we don’t want to “ruin it” and eat it…. Not sure how we’re going to resolve this issue, I’ll keep you posted on the situation. :P
Another big move was made this week. On Friday, we secured a daycare center. We’re still looking into ONE other option in the next couple weeks, but to be safe we held a position at the close by Kids R Kids center. It was great to hear stellar reviews of this center by multiple neighbors, along with our own sense of it "feeling" right. One great advantage with this daycare, is the fact I can literally log on to my computer and watch him anytime I want during the day.

Since we've found out the we were having a boy, the shopping has NOT stopped. (I've been good this weekend and only bought a couple small items for his bedroom that need to be painted when his bedroom gets painted). I believe we decided to start spackling during the week, and then getting down to actual painting this Sat and Sun.

Easter and whatnot

So - we have front row, Gray-man's Easter egg. Second pic is me on Easter. The Third pic is SOME of Gray's clothes that his Gram's and Aunties have bought him..

So, here I am at 22 weeks. Dan took this picture today AFTER I worked out, so please excuse my messy hair.

I am officially feeling and looking very pregnant. Going to the docs today, I got the correct weight gain of 12lbs (i'm thinking it's all in the belly and boobs:P, right???)

Not quite sure where this guy is gonna fit for the next 18 weeks, this should be interesting.....
