Come find me on tumblr!

So I've decided to start using tumblr as my main blog instead of blogger.  It's just way easier to post to compared to blogger.  I stopped blogging after Eli was born (as you can see from my sparse posts) since it was just too much of a hassle.  But now, using my tumblr blog, I hope to blog much more frequently!  

So come on over to tumblr and join me!

We are so in love!!!

(I know this photo is burry but I don't even care because I just love it so much!
Elijah was only a few hours old when this picture was taken :) )

Also, oops -- I haven't blogged in over 2 months...
but for good reason of course :)
Hopefully I'll get back into blogging soon.
But for now, excuse me while I go snuggle my adorable little babe!

Our Last Weekend as a Family of Two?!

...scenes from the weekend...

Chocolate chip pancakes while it blizzards outside

More screen printing!
(I am so obsessed with how the Hobbes ones turned out!)

I also screen printed this little gift for my mom's birthday!

And on Sunday, the whole fam went out to lunch to celebrate my mom's birthday!

This weekend was a good one.  On Saturday night, Brett and I went all out and had a really great date night, including dinner at the delicious Salt of the Earth restaurant (which I forgot to take any pictures of!).  We figured, this could be our last weekend as a family of 2, so we might as well go out to a fancy restaurant that we probably won't be visiting for a while once the little babe arrives!  And now we are just waiting waiting waiting for baby boy to make his debut.  My official due date is FRIDAY and we just can't wait any longer to meet this little guy! 

Come on, baby boy!
We are sooooo ready for you!*

Brett came up with this delish recipe:
Mexican stuffed peppers with enchilada sauce - yum!

Ticket to Ride - we are kind of obsessed with this game!

Good morning from my Valentine's Day owl =)

Valentine's Day donut - yes please!

Doing a mini ice cream taste testing after our Valentine's Day dinner with friends!
(Too bad I couldn't also drink that delicious beer that Brett had...)

Making tons and tons of meatballs to freeze for easy meals after the baby comes!

Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day weekend!!

Game night (and this delish dessert) with the fam!

Finally got prints made for some frames around the house

I've been on a roll lately with screen printing onesies - I just can't stop! =)

I'm just about 38 weeks now and we are sooo ready to meet this little guy!
We packed our hospital bags last night, so feel free to come any day now, baby! =)

Our Calvin & Hobbes Mural for the Nursery!!

Happy Friday!  I am officially 36 weeks pregnant, whoa!  Only 4 weeks to go until my due date, but it really could be any day now from here on out!

Back when I was in my 2nd trimester, Brett and I started thinking about what we wanted the nursery to look like.  We have both always loved the Calvin and Hobbes comic books and have almost all of them between the two of us.  Well, back in October, when we found out we were having a BOY (!!), we just knew we had to use a Calvin and Hobbes theme!

And for some crazy reason, I decided to take it upon myself to actually paint a Calvin and Hobbes wall mural in the nursery.  We figured out which picture we wanted to use and then I finally got around to working on it at the beginning of January.  I sketched the picture on the wall in pencil and then had my mom and sister help me with the painting.  All in all, it only took us two full days of work!  And I seriously could not be more happy with it!

Here's the process of how it went from start to finish...

Annnnd finally finished!!

I am seriously so obsessed with it!  Every time I walk by this room, I find myself stopping just to stare at it.  I love it so much.  And I really hope baby boy loves it too!!  Now, we are just finishing up organizing the rest of the nursery with furniture, clothes, and all those other little details.  Hopefully once it's officially done, I will post some pictures of the whole nursery!  Hooray! =)

"It's a magical world, Hobbes, ol' buddy...
...let's go exploring!"

Getting Close!

Only a few more weeks of pregnancy mocktails =)
Soon enough I will be partaking in adult beverages again!

All the little guy's clothes are washed and put away!

And Brett put together and set up some of the baby gear!

Everything is feeling so much more real now!
We are counting down the days until we get to meet our baby boy =)

Virgin Mocktails & Tons of Baby Clothes!

...scenes from the weekend...

Tasty snacks & virgin mocktails
(Brett makes me the best non-alcoholic drinks so I don't miss beer & wine tooo much ;) )

Sorting through all of the little babe's clothes
(he has so many already and they are all SO cute!)

Relaxing with some inspirational reading
(I'm absorbing as much knowledge as I can at this point!)

Time is flying fast these days!  I'm 34 weeks (soon to be 35 weeks) pregnant and my due date is right around the corner!  My mother-in-law threw me a 2nd baby shower this past weekend (which I totally forgot to take any pictures of) and now we have almost everything we need for the little babe's arrival.  Sorting through everything and organizing the nursery is getting me so excited for this baby boy to join our family!  Only a few more weeks to go... ahh! =)

Our Baby Shower!!

This past Saturday, my mom threw us the most adorable baby shower!!  Since our baby boy is due in late February, she made it a winter snowman theme and her crafty decorations were so cute!  We made it a co-ed shower and it was so much FUN!  Adding guys to the mix of baby gear and baby bingo made everything so hilarious and awesome.  We had such a great time!

I mean, just look at those diaper snowmen center pieces!
My mom is so creative =)

We received so many amazing and thoughtful things from our family and friends.  This little babe is already so loved by so many and he isn't even here yet!  This whole day just got me that much more excited for his arrival.  Ahh, I can't wait!  Only a few more weeks to go!!*
