Her Bed is Ready!

Today is my baby's due date! Im all ready for her. At least I know I wont have to go past next Tuesday the 18th. Thats when I'll be induced if I dont go into labor before then. Its just nice to know there is an end!!!

Here is her little crib. I cant wait to post more details on the sheet, the mobile, the blanket, and the crib skirt all made my me! This picture is pretty bad, its evening but it just looked so cute and cozy in there. 

How cute will it be with a sweet little girl baby laying in there!?! So excited!

Im also planning a bumper. I ordered the filler pads on the 30th of August from Joann and they arent supposed to arrive until September 20th! I know Hawaii is far, but that is long!

Wish me luck and send some labor thoughts my way this week (just dont ask when Im going to "pop" or I will punch you)

Thank goodness my mom arrives tomorrow!!!

Pinterest Rant

Lets start by saying I love Pinterest. Ive been pinning a ton lately since all I feel like doing is sitting and waiting for this baby to come out! Or while I lay in bed with horrid heart burn in the middle of the night.

BUT, there are a few things that drive me crazy about some of the pins on Pinterest. Id love to hear if these bug you too, or if there are other things that you cant stand.

So here we go...

1. All the pins that are super nasty to look at.

  • the baby with the bad rash
  • the close up of the nose with tons of blackheads- gag
  • any thing with blood
2. DIY stuff that is obviously not DIY.
  • a super intricate beaded lace bracelet - ya right to whoever thinks they can just whip that up
  • when the pin is labeled "DIY" but when you click through you find out its actually a thing sold at Disneyland, or a store like Gymboree or something. No pattern, no directions. Probably not a DIY, maybe an inspiration.
3. Some of the outfit pins.
  • Im not hating on all the pins that show full outfits pulled together. But does anyone really need a pin to show you that holy jeans and a white t-shirt with grey converse will be cute? (Is that even cute?)
  • Or a pair of dark wash jeans and a striped shirt? Thats pretty basic, probably dont need a picture showing how to pull that together. Inspire me with something creative! 
Also, if you have a board dedicated to cats I wont follow it. 

I hope no one reading this is offended! You can pin whatever you want, I promise I wont judge you. I just needed to get that off my chest!! 

Go forth and pin!

The Best Thing Ever

This is my happy place

We had such a fun time on Labor Day. I was hoping it would be labor day for another reason, but that was clearly not happening. 

So many friends and my favorite beach. The water was nice and cool, and I can float like nobody's business. 

Here's to 39 1/2 weeks!

Baby Update

No real baby news yet. My due date is Sep 11th so I only have a few days left. Hopefully. Im more than ready. I have Dr. appointment on Tuesday and Im hoping I know more then.

A dear Tongan woman in my ward said I was going to have this baby really soon, she could tell from the look of my eyelids. Apparently they have "the look".

I went to Target last Thursday and right when I walked in, and old man worker immediately approached me and said (no joke) "Dont let your bag of waters break!" Ewww!!! Who calls it "bag of waters" and I really dont want to talk about that with an old man! And its not his business! I guess he just didnt want to have to clean it up? Weird moment.

Anywho,  the car seat and crib are ready, little clothes are washed, and initial projects are completed. Im READY!! And everything hurts.

Well maybe I can wait and have her after Wednesday, I have a hair appointment. Mama has roots! ;)

Ta da!
