I Won!

Mama Dew had a giveaway last week and I WON!

She was giving away $10 worth of loot from Gobbledygook Bowtique.

I chose the Sassy Newborn Hat

and Whimsical Handmade Bow on Headband

Since my baby girl is still in my belly, I had to bribe a model.

Insert Norman.

He is such a diva. I had to give him several treats to play along.

I cannot wait for Baby B to wear these super cute accessories! Thank you to Mama Dew and Gobbledygook Bowtique !!

Go to Gobbledygood Bowtique Etsy shop and check out the goods. She even makes adorable tutus!

A Few Things

1. I big fluffy pink heart Blake Shelton.


He lives in Oklahoma. He's like 7 feet tall. I follow him on twitter and he makes me laugh.

2. I still haven't taken pics of anything from my shower because our upstairs air conditioner is not working. I took everything to the baby's room (Nate Dawg will not say the work "nursery"). It is one million degrees up there and I refuse to walk up the stairs until the air conditioner is fixed. The guys finally came 2 days ago to fix it and it's not fixed. They're coming back today. I'm gonna walk outside all big and pregnant and tell them it needs to be fixed because they're just hurting the baby. They better fix it this time.

3. I love my job.

4. I'm almost 30 weeks pregnant and officially uncomfortable. I'm hot. I get full really easily. I'm front heavy. I feel like my belly is some accessory that I can't do anything with.

Over the next 10 weeks my belly will get muuuuch bigger and I will be muuuuuuuuch more uncomfortable.

My complaining is over.


5. Here's the  forecast for Broken Arrow, OK

It could be worse, right?

29 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 29 weeks, 3 days (7 months)
Size of baby: Baby is around the size of a butternut squash (17 inches, 3.1lbs)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: up 15 lbs. I head back to the doctor today. I've started 2 week appointments...ugh.
Maternity Clothes: everything except gym shorts and tshirts are maternity.
Gender: girl
Movement: lots and lots and lots. Nate's brother and his gf got to feel her moving this weekend.
Sleep: I found out that I sleep one million times better in our bed than I do in a different bed. We stayed with Nate's grandmother in KC last weekend and I got very little sleep.
What I miss: running for long periods of time/working out hardcore, beer, and sushi.
Cravings: The other day I wanted powdered mini donuts, so I bought a box. I ate 2. I'm so disappointed in myself.
Symptoms: My belly is still a little sore. It probably didn't help that I was drove a golf cart around a bumpy course for about 5 hours on Saturday. I'm very happy to report that I haven't had any swelling in my hands, feet, or ankles. Go me!
I don't know if you can tell, but the top of my belly button is really sticking out. The bottom isn't. It's so weird.

...or Summer luvin' Monday

It was 106 today in Tulsa. Just thought I'd throw that in.

I saw this thing the other day while driving

And I got a manicure with OPI Cajun Shrimp.

My friend Mallory got these super cute stickers for Baby B. There are months 1-12 stickers that you put on the front of onesies and take pics of the baby in to document their growth! You can get them here.

AND I won a giveaway from Mama Dew!

Best week ever!

28 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 28 weeks, 3 days (7 months)
Size of baby: Baby is around the size of a small cabbage (17 inches, 2.9lbs)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: up 15 lbs
Maternity Clothes: everything except gym shorts and tshirts are maternity.
Gender: girl
Movement: lots and lots and lots. She wakes me up throughout the night
Sleep: it's hit or miss. Yesterday I was exhausted all day. I was so busy. I fell asleep at 8:30 on the couch, then Nate woke me up at 10:30 to go to bed. I woke up a few times throughout the night, but I still slept until 6:30. Growing a baby is wearin me out.
What I miss: running for long periods of time/working out hardcore, beer, and sushi. I miss getting in a bathing suit and not caring.
Cravings: kolaches. I told Nate Sunday morning before church that I wanted kolaches. We ended up going to breakfast somewhere else because we couldn't find a donut shop. Yesterday I was at Sam's and saw frozen I bought a box of 20. :)
Symptoms: I started feeling really sore yesterday afternoon/evening. Maybe because I lifted several cases of water and some boxes of books. I guess that was part of the reason I was so exhausted. My belly was sore and so were my legs.
Here is this weeks belly pic:

Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters
I have to do this very quickly because I'm already running behind this morning.

*I had my shower this weekend. I didn't take many pics because I was unwrapping a ton of gifts!
This is what our living room looked like Saturday night after unloading the backseat of my car. I still have stuff in the very back of my car...I'll unload that eventually.

I did get to take a pic of me and my bff Brandi and her daughter, Cailyn.

Eventually I will take pics of all of the super cute pink stuff Baby B got. ADORABLE. I wish they made some of it in adult sizes. :)

27 Weeks

I had a doctor's appointment this morning. Nothing like starting your day off by peeing in a cup, being weighed, getting a shot in your arm, and having your uterus measured.
Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 27 weeks, 5 days (almost in my 7th month)
Size of baby: Baby is around the size of a head of cauliflower (16 inches, 2.5lbs)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: up 15 lbs as of this morning. Technically I can gain 20 more pounds and still be ok.
Maternity Clothes: everything except gym shorts and tshirts are maternity.
Gender: girl
Movement: lots and lots and lots. She's doing some sort of baby aerobics, I'm sure. Baby TaeBo or something.
Sleep: it's getting better. Not that I'm trying to jinx myself or anything, but I feel good every morning.
What I miss: running for long periods of time/working out hardcore, beer, and sushi. I miss getting in a bathing suit and not caring.
Cravings: nothing really this week. I feel like I'm running out of room..and we still have a few more months to go.
Symptoms: Heartburn. I started to get a little nauseous Sunday morning before church. I had been up for a few hours without eating and started feeling sick. But I didn't throw up. Go me!
Pics below. Norman wanted to make an appearance in the first one. :)

And here's a pic of what Nate bought me last night
folks-that is a Rolo McFlurry from McDonald's. Snack size, of course. It was a delicious, caramely mess.

What I'm Lovin' Wednesday

I'm loving that I actually went shopping for maternity dresses for my shower this weekend.  There are not many options...

I also went shopping for diaper bags. There are hundreds that all look the same to me. But that's ok! (By the way, those are ALL diaper bags. On every shelf.)

I'm loving that I can still put on this size small skirt. It doesn't really fit. You can't tell, but I have it pulled up to the high heavens. I suppose that makes it appropriate for church.

 this was from 27 wks, 1 day (Sunday)

I'm loving that my boss lady is finished filming her Food Network show. I've hardly had a chance to talk to her the past 2 weeks. I want her back!

I'm loving that my baby shower is this weekend! I can't wait to celebrate Baby B!

I'm loving that I've gotten to go to the pool recently. My friend Haley is a labor and delivery nurse, so she doesn't judge my belly :). Plus she has a super cute daughter, so she understands this whole pregnancy thing bc she's been through it herself!

I'm loving that last night Nate kept making me go outside with him and watch the lightening show. It was before the storms started here, but we had CRAZY lightening. I mean crazy. He would make me go out back and watch it. Then I'd sit down for a few minutes, and he'd make me walk out front to watch it. It was fun :)

I've done a little of this....

and saw some of these in Target...
those are firecrackers if you couldn't tell.

and I've done some crib shopping.
I'm not even talking about the bedding, I'm just talking about the crib. Too many choices. And now that Buy Buy Baby is open in Tulsa, I have one more store to add to the growing number of baby stores that are overwhelming. Who wants to decorate the nursery?

Head over to Marie's blog and tell us what you've been doing this week!

Fill in the Blank Friday

1. This weekend I'm figuring out what to get my hostesses for my baby shower next week. And figuring out what I'm going to wear.
2. My last vacation was probably Florida last year to visit Kyle and Angela

3. My next vacation will be in a few weeks when we go to Charleston, SC for our baby moon! :):):)

4. My favorite way to relax is prepregnancy-run. Now that I'm pregnant, I just like to sit on the couch with Nate Dawg. haha
5. When vacationing one should always plan less. For me, a vacation is supposed to be relaxing. I don't want to have plans every minute of every day of vacation.

6. When vacationing one should never "count calories". I read that on someone else's and it's so true.
7. The best part about a vacation is hopefully enjoying the getaway that you need.  When you get home, you SHOULD feel more relaxed.

26 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 26 weeks, 5 days (a little over 6 months)
Size of baby: Baby is around the size of a cucumber (15 inches, 2.2lbs)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: up 13 lbs. Yikes
Maternity Clothes: everything except gym shorts and tshirts are maternity.
Gender: girl
Movement: She's moving so much more this week! I can actually poke her when she's moving. She was kicking me with one leg, so I put my hand on it, then she kicked me with the other leg. ha!
Sleep: so much. I had lots of dreams about snakes last night.
What I miss: running for long periods of time/working out hardcore, beer, and sushi. I miss getting in a bathing suit and not caring.
Cravings: I need to take my glucose test, so of course I only want sugar. What I wouldn't give for a cookie cake right now.
Symptoms: Heartburn. And I've gotten my feelings hurt several times this week. I know this stuff normally wouldn't bother me, but this week I've been more emotional than ever.
oy. Let's do a little comparison here.  We've got 15 wks and 3 days on top. On bottom is 26 weeks 5 days.

What I'm Lovin' Wednesday

*I'm lovin that we've booked our babymoon! More on that to come!

*I'm lovin that I'm almost 27 weeks pregnant and I feel great. I really hope this feeling lasts.

*I'm lovin that my boss lady is filming her Food Network Show in my hometown. She goes to the one grocery store in town and cameras follow her...then there's a rumor that starts that Reese Witherspoon is in Pawhuska. What? No. REE is filming. Not REESE. It spread like wildfire (just like most things in the small town)

*I'm lovin my sweet husband who took me to get a double stuff oreo Sonic Blast last night.
