Making Progress

So my wonderful mother has spent two days here, painting the baby's bedroom! I'm feeling much better now about things... I was beginning to wonder if I'd ever start on the room! Now I just need to get new carpeting in there before I get a crib and dresser. Here's the crib set that I really like! Isn't it adorable!

6 months

I really can't believe that I'm in my 6th month pregnancy already... Seriously, I always hear preggers say that the time drags and they can't wait to have the baby... Personally, the time is going by so fast! Too fast... I'M NOT READY YET! LOL. I still have to get the baby's room ready and do some things in the house. I still have a few classes that I need to take before he arrives. (School and birthing classes). But I honestly cannot complain! I feel great and have not had any problems so far (knock on wood). Edward has been moving much more now... I can totally feel the movements and when he is turning around in there, It feels creepy but I love it because he's already active. He reminds me everyday that I have something to look forward to and I can not wait. Every now and then, I'll look at his sonogram photos just to see him... I just know he's going to be handsome.

Nice surprise!

So about a month ago, while I was at the grocery store, I was craving pancakes... I have never bought the stuff to make it because well, I'm not a big breakfast eater, nor am I great cook... So I bought it thinking that Pete could handle making us some pancakes.

Well when I got home that day, he saw the pancake mix and replies, "Pancake mix? What did you buy this for?" And I replied, "I thought you could maybe make me some pancakes sometime..." And his response was, "You are crazy, I've never made pancakes before..." Me: "How hard can it be? You just add water to the mix." I say this knowing full well that I might not be able to do this simple task. LOL. So they sat in the cabinet untouched for one month.

However, this morning when I woke up, got dressed etc, and walked passed the kitchen, Pete was at the stove flipping pancakes for me! It was a nice surprise for me before I had to leave for work. You see, Pete is not a morning person... and for him to wake up early during the week just to make ME breakfast, well it's big! And very much appreciated... It's been awhile since he has done something for me... and It meant a lot to me... Thanks Pete, I love you!

New Ornaments from Pier 1

Every Year for the past 5 years, I've been collecting ornaments from Pier 1. I just love how pretty they are! Here are a few new ones I bought over the weekend. I can't wait to put up a Christmas tree. We didn't do one last year because life got ahead of us... but this year, I want a tree! I love watching tv at night with the fireplace going and glancing over the Christmas tree with the lights blinking on and off. It's something I look forward to each year.

My new makeover!


Hello ladies! Wanna see what I've been working on all weekend? I decided to do a makeover on my bedroom because I Was tired of how ghetto it looked. We had white blinds up and nothing on the walls... no pictures... It was just plain. A bed, two dressers and a nightstand. That's it! Look at it now. It's amazing what a little paint and some pictures will do to make a room look good... oh and the pillows. I love the colors!! The red, blue and teal works so well together. I had a vision before I went looking for a paint color and curtains and it was exactly like this!

The hubby finds a new activity

So last night when I got home from work, Pete was making mashed potatoes and steaks for dinner. I walk into the house and he tells me "perfect timing." And it did smell so good! So while we were eating, hubby was telling me about his new activity. He tells me that he ran three times in one day. I just looked at him, trying not to laugh... So instead of laughing right away, I asked him how far did he run... He tells me "up to the hill" making it seem like a long run... But in reality, it's only about 2 blocks up our street... might not even be two blocks! And i'm supose to be impressed? So I asked him what made him decide to get up from the computer chair and run. He tells me "well, I need to get into shape if I'm going to join the Navy." Yes... he's still thinking he's still young enough to join if he can manage to get into shape... I just don't see it happening... I mean, the idea sounds great but Pete likes to sit at the computer 12 hours a day playing computer games, not working out. And when i mentioned this to Pete, he pokes me in the arm, "feel this, do you know how fast I can move this finger? I kill lots of people in one night with the push of this finger." LMAO, crazy man. That's about all he can do! What about the dishes, the vacuming, the dusting, the laundry, the grocery shopping, the pet store runs, the bathrooms? When I mention these, he replies that it's a woman's job... Some days, I wish I was a man so that all I was responsible for doing would be to take the trash out and maybe load the dish washer... oh and pay the bills.

Hubby's cravings...

I'm not sure if I mentioned about hubby begging me to go to Baskin Robins for sundaes on Sunday evening? I did... but let me tell you, he's a mess...

So Tuesday night, Hubby calls work at 5:45, 15 MINS before I'm scheduled to get off and asked if I'd stop at Taco bell... I hate it when he does this especially since I work 10 hr days and I just wanted to go home. He begs me and tells me that he's craving Hard tacos... silly man. So I played the good wife and went... I have to say, he must be having sympathy pains for me... i'm the one preggers here... and then yesterday, all day, he was eating chocolate... Alot too. I mentioned something to him because he rarely eats chocolate and he tells me that he's been craving chocolate... lol. Well the more he eats, the less I eat... I'm trying to eat healthy here... So far it's working out because my piggy of a husband takes care of the junk food but he knows to stay off the sour cream and onion potatoe chips or I'll kill him. hehe

Rainy Sunday

I did a bit of scrapping today! Some layouts turned out great! And while I was busy creating, I decided to put the layouts that have been piling up away.



It's been raining on and off today so I decided to make a pot roast. Before you all say how proud of me you are... I have to admitted that I cheated a bit. All I did was empty the ingrediants that Betty Crocker put together and let it cook for 4 hours on high. LOL. But hubby was excited and wouldn't have known if I wasn't so honest about the process. LOL
