New header...

Thanks to my amazing friend, Mercedes, I have a new header on my blog. It makes it look so much more personal. I love it. Thanks Cedes!!!

Oh, and if you don't like my Christmas theme you're just going to have to deal with it! lol. You better start shopping now....there are only 8 more weekends until Christmas...haha :)

24 weeks...

Today marks my 24 week mark. I took a belly picture two days ago. I don't think I've grown much since my last picture.

It's a crappy picture but at least I'm taking them!!! lol. I am counting down the days until I get to eat pizza every day, open lots of baby things, and see all my family and friends! We will be there in 22 days!!!! I am getting more and more excited every day.

This weekend we are going to be quite busy! We have a halloween party at my neighbors house tomorrow night and then Saturday morning we are getting up and heading to Dallas to go to the Stars/Sabres game. I know they aren't doing too good but we've lived in Houston long enough to know that when you go to a sports game, you probably aren't going to win. lol. It will still be a fun time with Pat, my parents and Ally. Then on Sunday we are heading back in the morning and handing out candy in the evening. I would say picture will follow but since our camera is down I wont be taking too many. Maybe I can get a few cell phone shots of the events this weekend!

Hope you all have a great Halloween!!!!

Burp cloths...

I found an awesome website that had a burp cloth tutorial so I thought I'd give it a try. I have a friend that is due in December and thought these would be perfect for baby shower gifts and for Savannah. I went to Joann Fabrics on Friday and of course they had tons of awesome fabric. I bought way too much but I couldn't help myself. I think I might try to make a few blankets with the fabric too. Here are a couple pictures of the burp cloths that I completed already.

On Saturday, Pat and I got together with my cousin and her boyfriend and we went to a pumpkin patch. I really wanted to get a pumpkin to carve and Casey wanted some apple cider. We both failed. We are used to awesome patches in NY and I have yet to find one down here. Half of the pumpkins were rotting away and the other half didn't have stems. We did see this awesome pig though. We got to go on a hay ride and pet horses. It makes me want to learn how to ride so bad! I have always wanted to but when I get to be up close to a horse it makes we want to even more. Maybe Savannah will be an animal lover and we can learn together!

Of course another weekend has gone by and no work has been done in the nursery. Maybe one of these days we'll clear everything out of there. I did get some progress done in the guest bedroom. If only I could go on HGTV or TLC and have someone come organize my house for me...that would be the best gift ever! hehe

Flashback Friday...Our Home

I read another blog all the time and the girl does this thing where she posts about something in the past on Fridays, hence the name, Flashback Friday. So I thought I would give it a try this week.

This picture is a few weeks after Pat and I bought our first house. We are coming up on being in the house for 5 years now. It's kind of crazy. We've been down here over 7 years already and I don't think I would ever move back to NY! hehe.

A lot sure has changed. We both moved down right after High School. We are now married and have a little one on the way. We've experienced and grown so much and I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us!

Fun-filled weekends...

We have been very busy the last few weekends. Since I don't have a camera, I stole a few pictures from other people to share with you all.

Ally's Birthday Party:

Emma and I

Ally and her friends....the ice cream cake was yummy!

Ally and V in the bounce house...they had tons of fun. I really wanted to bounce! lol

Jacob and Shana's Wedding:

The Bride and Groom

Pat and a bridesmaid

 Emma's 1st Birthday Party:

The Birthday girl with her new stuffed Minnie

All the goodies!

Last Friday was Pat's 25th Birthday so we went out to eat, just the two of us. We went to Cheddar's. One of our new favorite places. The food is delicious and I can't wait for the one to open up right by our house! They even have amazing drinks which of course I couldn't enjoy this time around...hehe. We went and saw a movie on Sunday and Pat was even nice enough to let me choose! lol. After the movie, we enjoyed a nice evening at the dog park with Benji and Bella. They were exhausted by the time we left. Benji had so much fun chasing the ball and meeting new dogs. Bella would rather me hold her the whole time! lol

This weekend we aren't doing much of anything. I am hoping I'll have enough ambition to clear out some more of the nursery and maybe if I get in a sewing mood, I'll attempt at making some burp clothes. I found easy instructions online but I'm sure something will go wrong with my machine or something! lol

Camera failure...

I was so ready to take lots of pictures at our friends wedding on Sunday and when I went to turn on the camera it wouldn't fully turn on. I did it multiple times, took the memory card out, the battery...everything. Our camera is broken!!! Pat looked at it and said now we can get our really nice So for Christmas hopefully we'll get some cash so we can get a new camera before the baby comes. I am so sad. I've had that camera for about three years now and it has been the most amazing camera ever. It hardly ever takes a bad picture. We will definitely be getting another Canon, that's for sure. And for the amount we've used it, we've gotten our moneys worth. The bad thing is, when Pat bought me the camera for Christmas I was mad at him that he spent so much! I never do that anymore when he buys me a gift now!

As promised, I took a belly picture on Sunday. Here is me at 21 1/2 weeks:

And this isn't the best picture, but here is Pat in his tux, jacket off of course! He looked so cute!

So wish me luck on finding a really good camera on sale in the next few months!

My babies...

Benji and Bella are the best dogs ever. Here is a picture of Bella & I from last night and a picture of Benji. Bella never takes a picture with her eyes open when the flash is on. It must hurt her little eyes. She still looks cute though!

I know they are going to take good care of Savannah when she comes. Benji is probably going to be a little jealous but that's understandable since I've had him for almost 5 years. Plus they are both spoiled so that doesn't help!!!

And this last pic is of my belly at 19 1/2 weeks. I haven't taken one since so maybe this weekend you'll get a new belly picture.

I am already 21 weeks and this time has just gone by so fast. I can't believe next month it will be Thanksgiving and my baby showers in NY. I can't wait. We really need to start on the nursery soon. We've been meaning to but we also had the brilliant idea to finish painting the rest of the house that we wanted done before the baby comes. I love how the kitchen and living room turned out though and it makes our house look more like a home now. So it was all worth it in the end. I'll try to post pictures soon of how it turned out!

The weather here has been amazing here. I wish it would stay like this all the time. I got my first flu shot yesterday. It hurt like a son of a gun and my arm is a little sore today but I know it's best for both me and Savannah so hopefully I don't get sick this year!

We have a busy weekend with my little sister Ally's birthday party on Saturday, which by the way it's her birthday today...HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ALLY!!!....and we have a wedding, that Pat is in, on Sunday. I can't wait to see him in a Tux and a hot pink tie and vest...I promise I'll post pictures of that! :) Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
