Maternity Pics

We have been working hard on the nursery and the house. Stay tuned for inspiration photos and some photos of projects I will be doing for the nursery!

I have a quick photo of a project I finished two weeks ago. It's a Menu board for our kitchen. We seem to do better when we are organized and plan our meals out! Not to mention Brian loves dry erase boards and wanted me to somehow incorporate one into our everyday life. So I did a dry erase Menu Board. My hubbie hung it in our kitchen today. Yipppee! First, I will show you my inspiration:

Here is mine that I created. It cost me under $5.00. The door my wonderful mommy found in the trash some where. I got the scrapbook paper and letters to put on it. The cute vintage teal knob my mom got at Hobby Lobby awhile ago. Tada!
The glare on the window is not allowing me to show how CUTE this Menu really turned out, but hey you get the idea!

Lately I have been under the weather. I have been battling this horrible cold for over a week and a half. This has literally kicked my butt. I have ZERO energy and it really stinks cause all I want to do is lay on the couch. The last thing I wanna do is chase around my whack-a-do 3rd graders!  I finally took a day off Friday and went to the dr. This head cold turned into a horrible ear infection, my luck! So the dr did give me medicine thank GOODNESS and it's slowly working. I did a little more today as far as running errands but I'm perfect content with relaxing on the couch.

Here are our Maternity Pics that we had my friend Amy take at The Rye Studio! We got in for one of her mini sessions and turned it into maternity pics! We love them, they turned out great. Very simple, yet creative and capture the moment. We didn't want anything over the top and we didn't want a million pics of me pregnant. Just enough to capture the moment for our little miss! They turned out great. Here they are!

How far along: 32 weeks
Total weight gain: 23 pounds
Maternity clothes: Work pants and jeans. The bigger I get the harder it's getting to stretch my shirts, lol! I am having a harder time going shopping and not being able to buy adorable spring dresses, swimsuits, cover ups, etc. UGH! I can't wait to be a normal size so I can get my Summer shopping on! 
Stretch marks: I'm getting a few little red lines here and there.
Sleep: Not so great since I've been sick. I am seeming to wake up every single night at 2:30 and cannot go back to sleep. It's not because I'm uncomfortable from being pregnant. For some reason I wake up at the same time and cannot go back to sleep! I miss my uninterrupted sleep nights. Guess I'm gearing up for parenthood, yippee!
Best moment: Getting the nursing/rocking chair, crib, changing dresser and dresser up in the nursery! All furniture is set! YAY!
Miss anything: Sleep
Movement: Lots
Food cravings: apples, peanut butter, pineapple, sharp cheddar cheese and salads still. I started loving ICE and captain crunch cereal! 
Queasy or sick: nope
Showing: Oh yes!
Gender: Girl
Labor signs: just Braxton Hicks
Belly button: Is in. Finally took my belly button ring out. Guess I'm growing up or something?
Wedding rings: On
Mood: Exhausted but happy!
Looking forward to: Getting the KS Reading Assessment over with this week with my 3rd graders. Also our after school Boost Program is OVER which means I get to leave work everyday at 3:30. AAHHHHMAZING! Also, excited to start on some nursery projects this week like the curtains!
