Happy 28 To Me ...

Monday was my 28th birthday. I don't know if its the fact that I'm getting older or am just too excited thinking about our little baby, but it was just another day for me. Work was the usual, but my coworkers did have a nice cake for me and took me out to lunch. That night, Justin and I went to my parents for dinner and Monday Night Football. Dinner was delicous, I'm not even going to comment on the Packer game. All and all it was a good day to turn 28.

Mary Had A Little Lamb Baby Shower ...

Last Saturday was my baby shower. The theme was easy to decided on. Mary had a little lamb. I can't believe how much lamb themed gifts we got. I didn't think lambs were that popular for babies. The turn out was great, I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful family and group of friends. We got 3/4 off our registry and theres just a few odds and ends we ourselves have to get.

While the ladies were at my parents house, Justin had the fellas over to our house for a BBQ. Each pack of diapers or wipes that they each brought got them a raffle ticket to win a rifle. I can't believe how all out some of the guys went. Here is our pile of 5,022 wipes and 2,343 diapers.

Mary's Cherry Blossom Tree...

We've been going back and forth on what to put on the wall where the changing table sits in the nursery. A pictures, a mirror etc. I was secretly thinking of a cherry blossom tree, but didn't think Justin would like the idea, so I never brought it up. Then randomly one day Justin said, "what about a tree decal." Of course I thought it was a great idea, because I was thinking the same thing. We spent a little time online browsing tree decals until we found one on etsy we both liked. Ordered it and then the waiting game began.

Two weeks later our post lady rang the door bell with our package. A rather small package. Not big enough for our six foot tree. We opened it up and it was in a hundred different pieces. Seven pieces for the trunk and every leaf, flower, bird, butterfly had to be cut out and placed by hand. It took us about a hour and a half, it was a fun little project to do together.

Arizona Trip ...

Our cousins from Alaska; Sean, Marsha, and their daughter Loryn, were visiting Arizona for a week. They rented a house and invited us to drive down and visit them. It was so nice to get to see them and relax. There was pool in the backyard, so we spent almost every morning there. Marsha and I spent a day at the mall. We're only seven weeks apart in our pregnancies, so we did a little maternity and baby shopping. It was a nice little getaway for four days. I can't wait for us to get together next summer with both our babies.

Estimated Guess ...

For a girlfriends birthday almost three years ago, a few of us went to see a phsycic to have our tarot cards read. Now at that time I don't know if I would say I believed or if I was a skeptic. I never really had an opinion. I don't even know if I really have an opinion now. But the one thing that stuck out to me was that she told me I was going to have a baby December 24th 2012.

A little less than a year later, Justin and I started trying for a baby. We had no luck for a long time and became discourage. Now fast forward; and we are expecting our little princess on November 30th 2012. Now they aren't the exact dates, but are pretty darn close. Was it an estimated guess or something else? That I will never know for sure, but what a coincidence.
