One More Project Down

So with the help of Brandon I have completed another project.

Here is the inspiration:

And I found the instructions here:

I have been nesting like crazy and in particular I have been wanting to be very crafty and do everything myself. Below are a couple of projects that I have completed. The first project is a Hair-bow Holder. I know I have seen these on other blogs and it was so easy. I had the frame (it was saved from one of my parent's yard sales) and the ribbon was $4 at Hobby Lobby (I caught it 50% off).

The second is a Valentine Wreath. I used a metal wreath form (~$3) and 3 packages of Valentine themed garland ($.50 each at Dirt Cheap), so total project cost ~$5.

Our Pregnancy

We had planned a beach trip in September for our anniversary (even though it is not until October 25). I was a little late but really did not think anything about it because I had been to the doctor for my yearly visit on September 9. So, while we were doing our grocery shopping I thought we should pick up a pregnancy test just in case and...

Here are a few more pics from the trip:


I have not blogged in forever and I thought I should probably document this exciting time in our lives. We are going to have a baby! A girl!!!! Carlee!!!!!! I am 25 weeks pregnant and I am doing great! A little uncomfortable at times, but other than that everything is great! I am also beginning to slow down, for example I cannot make an all day shopping excursion like I once could (Brandon probably appreciates this part of my pregnancy;)). I am also nesting like crazy...everything must have a place or it must go! This week I had another day off of work because of snow, so I worked on her closet. Brandon had previously used the guest bedroom closet for his hunting gear, but most of it has found a new home in my closet (which meant I also worked on my closet). I took a load to the consignment store and another load is going to Goodwill. I also check everything for it's expiration date (a perfect reason for something to go). If it is expired, it goes in the trash!
