Hello there! I hope everyone is having a fab Monday so far. I've been under the weather since Friday with a horrible constant, nagging cough and sore throat. I decided to stay home today to get some more rest in so hopefully I won't be sick during the Thanksgiving Holidays. I have a card today...well actually an invitation. My sister and I are working on my baby shower invites, and I hope we can get them all done by the end of this week...keeping my fingers crossed!!! Both of my baby showers are in January. My sister and SIL's are throwing my first shower and my Aunts are throwing the second one. I can't wait to see all my friends and family that I haven't seen since I've been pregnant.
Anywho, here is the invite (please excuse the poor quality of the pic...I'm so out of practice.) Please tell me what you think of the invite. I like it, but I'm not sure I like it 100%. The sketch is from Niki Estes
of "My Paper Creations." I fell in love with the simplicity of it. I really like the different patterns of paper going on here, but I'm not sure I like the words Baby Shower stamped on the bottom. Should I add a tag or something with those words. Does it need something else?!?! What do you think?!?! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Well I hope everyone enjoys their afternoon. I'm headed back to bed for a nap! :) Hope to hear your suggestions soon! :) And if I'm not back before Thanksgiving, I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks for stopping by! ~ Jenn
Stamps: CTMH & Raspberry Suite Paper: CTMH, Prism Cardstock, Papertrey Ink Ink: Brilliance Graphite Coffee Bean, Copics Accents: Brads, Janome Sew Mini, Pop Dots
Just stopping by to say HI! :) I was so ready for the weekend to get here, this week was so slow for me. It's a beautiful weekend in Houston, the sun is shining and the weather is cool...what more could you ask for?!?!
We spent the morning watching my nephew play soccer and then we did some shopping. I bought my first couple pair of maternity pants today. Up until now I was able to still wear all my other clothes...which I thought was great! But I'm getting to the point where my jeans are fitting a little snug and I needed some more breathing room. When I tried them on it was like heaven...I can breathe...LOL
!!! :) I am now 23 weeks and this past week we had another doctor's appt
. Everything went well, the baby is now 1lb. 5oz. and seems to be right on track!!! If there was ever any doubt that I thought well maybe they got it wrong, maybe we are having a girl...I was wrong. We got some great pics of him showing the world that he truly is a boy...LOL
Well I'm off to spend the afternoon with some girlfriends and then I'll be coming back home to clean out some of my scrapbooking
things. I'm getting ready to sell some of my stamps that I now longer use or haven't used in a while. I've got to get rid of some of this clutter before the little one arrives. I figure if I haven't used it in a year, then maybe, just maybe it's time to let it go!!! :)
Well I hope everyone enjoys their Saturday afternoon! :) Thanks for stopping by and take care! :) ~ Jenn
Edited to Add: Some of you have asked when my due date is. It is Feb. 12th.
Ok, so I said in my last post that as soon as we found out what we were having I would let you know. We found out this morning that we are having a BOY
!!! :) Now it's time for us to start thinking about boy names, because all we had was girl names picked out...LOL!!! :)
I'm just so glad we know now...let the shopping begin! LOL!!!
Well I hope everyone is enjoying their afternoon! :) Thanks for stopping by and take care! :) ~ Jenn
Hi there! I hope everyone is doing well. Just wanted to give an update and let everyone know how things are going. Everything is moving along just fine with the baby. Last Friday I was 20 weeks...so I'm halfway through! YAY!!! :) Very soon we are going to find out what we are having and I absolutely can't wait!!! I'm not gonna say the date on here (I know my sister reads this...LOL!) because I've been keeping it a surprise and I haven't told anyone what date we are finding out, but it will be very, very soon! ;) And as soon as I find out I will let all of you know! :) I've also been contemplating about whether to come back to work once the baby is born. I love my job, but I feel like I won't know until the baby is here. I'm not too keen about putting my baby in daycare at 6wks. old either. Trust me, I have nothing against daycare. My parents ran a daycare business for 20 something years, so I know a lot about it. But I would rather wait til the baby was a year before I did that. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
It seems like every weekend we have something to do...it's been crazy. How 'bout ya'll? Between my nephew's soccer games, birthday dinners and shopping for baby furniture, my weekends are just jammed packed. I keep looking over at my scrapping table, still wanting
to ink up some of my new stamps and I haven't. I really hope to soon! :) This weekend my brother is having a garage sale (one of those that the whole neighborhood participates in) and so I've decided to help out with that. Plus we are cleaning out our spare bedroom for the baby so I know that I need to get rid of some things that are there collecting dust! Anywho, enough of me rambling. I just wanted to say hi and let everyone know what's been going on with me.
Hope everyone has a fabulous day!!! Thanks for stopping by and take care! ~Jenn
