35 Weeks, Nursery, Keeping Busy

Michael and I have been busy doing things to prepare for the baby! It's really beginning to sink in that we could have Baby Girl any time now so we are doing everything and anything we can to get ready now.

Here I am at 35 weeks...


This is what we've been able to get done with the nursery so far....


I don't know if you can really tell what the colors are from these pictures. The walls are a mint green and my mom made the valance...


She also quilted this blanket! We are now waiting for her to finish the bumpers that match the two. I am soooo in love with the colors and patterns! Pink and green with flowers and polka dots.


I'm keeping my eye out for a good, inexpensive, comfortable chair for the nursery too. I also want to put up some maternity pictures and possibly have a friend paint something pretty on a wall.

We are almost completely ready! The rest of what I want to do is just extra stuff. We have everything we need to have. I just washed and organized all of her clothes and blankets with her special baby laundry detergent. I will be getting my hospital bag ready to go this week. Doing things like this get me so excited to have her. I'm ready! I'm hoping for an early September baby :).

Other than doing all that baby prep stuff, we have had some time to do other things on Michaels days off this week. I used that thing called an oven a little more.

Some examples...

This is a potato cheese casserole.


Chocolate cake with ice cream.



We went to see The Rise of the Planet of the Apes. It was intense and we liked it!


I finished reading Hunger Games to Michael and now we are well into the second book of the series. It's fun to read them to him.

Went to the chiropractor for another adjustment. Seriously? Best thing I've done to keep my sanity through the aches and pains of pregnancy.

We visited family in OC on Wednesday night and then Thursday night I hung out with my friend Kambree.

We've been so busy this week, I haven't had time to blog until now! I hope everyone had a great week and that you have an awesome weekend!
