So so much...

Lots going on! Ok, well - for me anyway. Today I had a Dr. appt and things are looking great! The baby is very healthy and active. I have been worried that this baby will be big like Cache (Cache was 9 lbs., 5 oz. and 21") and my Dr. has been great with assuring me that he'll do what he can to make this delivery a little easier. Today he told me that at my appt. next week I should be able to pick a date to be induced!!! It's so crazy to think about. I mean, choosing the day you give birth? "Ahhh, lets see. Yes, Tuesday is...is no good, I have a hair appointment and a manicure that day, but Wednesday I think I could fit the birthing in between 2:00 and 3:00...". It's not like I'll give birth that much earlier than my due date and there is a chance that I'll go into labor before then (but since I was 6 days late with Cache, the chances of me going early aren't likely), so we'll just have to see! Overall, things look great and I feel fine. It's so weird to think that in two weeks I'll be the Mother of two boys...and we still don't know what to name him!!

I completely spaced my "What I'm Loving Wednesday" this week - oops! But I have found something that I love that is a little different than previous posts. What do I love this week? Dryer Belt Tension Pulley Wheels. Yes. I love them. Last week our dryer stopped working (I don't recommend this) and Cody found that the pulley wheel was totally shot. We tried to find a replacement part locally, but no one had it in stock so it had to be ordered. I was so eager to get this part in the mail, you have no idea. During the wait, I had to haul my laundry to my parents house and I hated that I wasn't able to toss a load in whenever I wanted. Oh, the things one can take for granted! FINALLY today the part arrived and I was so ecstatic, I found it blog-worthy. The gleam will wear off, but for right now? Laundry is my favorite past time. I think I'll do about 45 loads before I go to bed.

The nursery is painted! Oh dear -
*blink blink*

I know these pictures are intense. The blue in the photos looks so freaking bright. I promise it's not that crazy! It's blue, yes. It's bright, yes. But it doesn't singe the corneas like this picture might attest. Cody was able to get this done in two days - chair rail and all! I love how it turned out, I think it looks so great! It's crazy to finally see it done. We have yet to move in the crib and changing table. I also have to get some things on the walls and get everything finalized. Cody is starting on Cache's dump truck bed (I thought he was building a bulldozer bed...I was wrong) this weekend and I'm sure we'll get his room painted in the next little bit. It's all coming together and I love it!

Shopping, shopping. My mom and I went to lunch today followed by a very successful afternoon of shopping! We went to Evan's Gate House (this crafty little joint) that my friends Heather and Ann recommended (Girls!! I loved it!!). It was so cool - they had such great stuff! They had so much groovy Halloween stuff, I had to contain myself. If nothing else, it totally inspired me to make some decor this year...it was fabulous. We each left with lots of loot and tomorrow we are off to Gardner Village with my sister to do more damage. "Pray, what is this 'Gardner Village' you speak of?" Ahhh, it's a great little gathering of small shops that carry some of the coolest stuff for your home and for Holidays. Check our their site - www.gardnervillage.com. I am SO excited, I can't wait for tomorrow! Of course we'll be in comfy shoes and our hair will be pulled up - this is purely a business trip. Ahem.

Jewels! You put me to shame. Lets see my baby is four months and does she have a cute nursery? Nope! A crib? Nope! A changing table, dresser, all sorts of cute snugglie things every baby needs? Nope Nope Nope Nope. Kudos to you for being so on the ball! Sassy momma! And I miss Gardner Village!
