Look at these...


source

Found these gingerbread cookies on Etsy. Aren't they adorable? I have a sugar cookie obsession going right now. I made some Halloween cookies last week and iced them. They turned out pretty good but I need to work on my icing skills :) I found this awesome blog Bake at 350 while googling royal icing. She's got major skills and creates the cutest cookies. Plus her name is Bridget :) I'll keep working on mine and post pics once I get better!

Maternity photos

My friend, Katie, generously spent a day with me doing a maternity photo shoot. She has such a natural gift for photography! I love how they turned out and will treasure them. Here are a couple of my favorites:













Don't you think she should do this for a living?!

My first Mother's Day





We skyped with my parents and grandmother then ate lunch and checked out a lavender farm. For dinner we went to Extraordinary Desserts. I love that place!
Chris got a "beer float" with Maui's Coconut Porter and homemade vanilla ice cream. What a sport!

Holy Peeps!


I just found out about this Peeps contest and it's in it's fifth year!!! The Washington Post has a contest every year for fans to create a Peeps-inspired diorama. I love Peeps and am racking my brain for a cute entry. Click on this link and check out some of the incredible dioramas people came up with!

Some updated pics :)

Here's a current picture of me at 28.5 weeks:

And finally a picture of the shed Chris designed and built (Clemmy approves):


We finally had our yard sale this weekend and it was a success! It was beautiful outside on Sunday and we had plenty of shoppers. It feels so good to have cleared out the baby's room. Now we can set up the crib, changing table, etc. Yay!

Time is flying by...

I am totally out of my blogging habit. I'm preoccupied with baby stuff. I've researched a bunch of products and necessities and am pretty sure with what stuff we're going for. Now we are working on getting the house ready. Chris finished building a big shed in our backyard that will house our bikes, golf clubs, etc. that is currently at home in the baby's room. We've been organizing and sorting through stuff. And are planning a huge yard sale. Hopefully we will make a bunch of money and I can use it to buy our stroller :) We got the crib this weekend but haven't put it together yet as the baby room is currently the yard sale room :) The first major piece of baby apparatus that we got was the car seat. We've left it sitting in our family room. It sinks in more and more every time we look at it that soon there will be a wee one in it. So exciting!! The only ones who seem to be out of the loop are the dogs. It seems like they should sense this sort of thing but I swear they don't know. Clemmy still tries to lay on my stomach and Betsy thinks the household still revolves around her. Ha ha, the joke's on them :) I can't wait to see what they do with a little baby in the house.
Well, time for bed. I will post some pictures of the shed soon (it looks so good!).
