Baby Shower!

Over the weekend some of my best friends held a baby shower for me and the little sir. It was beyond what I could have imagined, down to every (rustic, woodsy, whimsical) detail they planned it perfectly. There were diapers for friends to write cute/funny sayings in, rocks to get written little pieces of advice, and a tea bag that said “a baby is brewing.”

There were lots of tasty treats (my favourite being the candy obviously), and a beautiful cake with little deer on top!

We played some fun and unique baby shower games that had everyone laughing! Then I got to open all the presents! We are beyond blessed by everyone’s generosity for this baby. We are overwhelmed by how much has been given to us, and we are truly thankful.

Jello shots where a must every time I opened a present and someone said “awe.”

30 weeks!

It seems crazy that I only have 10 weeks left of my pregnancy! 30 weeks has gone by so quickly, and we can’t wait to meet our little man. I’m so happy to be in my third trimester because it means being that much closer to meeting him!

How far along? 30 weeks 2 day
Total weight gain/measurements: 8lbs! (as of last week at my doctors appointment)
Maternity clothes: I have 3 pairs of maternity jeans/pants but all of my tops are still fitting me.
Stretch marks? None so far- heres hoping!
Sleep: I have a hard time with sleeping now, I wake up much easier and find it harder to fall back asleep once I am up. I have also started sleeping with a pillow in-between my legs because its more comfortable.

Food cravings: Fruit has been my number one food craving, I can’t seem to get enough of it.

Wedding rings on or off? On!
How have I been feeling? So far so good! In the beginning I had some morning sickness, but at around 12 weeks it went away. Now my belly is getting bigger and it is putting pressure on my ribs, but other then that it has been easy!
Last day of work? March 8th

House Tour // Main floor

I did a post a few months ago on our basement, showing mostly photos of how we have it decorated and the lay out of it. This post will show you photos of our main floor excluding our kitchen because I will do a separate post for that!

A few years ago my sister and I made these key hangers out of pallet wood. It was really easy to make and very practical!

I made the ruffles to hang over the door with some scrap fabric I had already from previous projects.

The pictures hanging in the chicken wire frame are from Origrami. Its a website that takes your Instagram photos and makes them into a polaroid picture.

Our main floor washroom also has our washer and dryer in it, which you can hardly see in these photos.
