So today is my official due date. Still not much activity/progress. I guess the baby wants to make a grand entrance into this world. Like we haven't waited long enough or something. :-) We're more excited than ever and can't wait! But I want her to come when she's ready so we're just waiting for now.

Anyway, if you're interested, you should check out this article on my brother who's at Iowa State. It's pretty cool and I can't wait to see him when the semester is over!

Exciting Night

So, Wendy and I had wanted to see Confessions of a Shopaholic since it came out. Her schedule is ridiculously busy so we decided to go for family night. :-) We met up and went shopping then to dinner then to the movie. It was lots of fun and I'm glad we got to spend the time together. It was awesome and I really liked the movie.

So my sisters are awesome and got me the bassinet I wanted. They really helped me out cause I was stressing about it. Well, it came today so we put it together right away! We were very excited. I love it so much. Sorry you can't tell how great it is cause I took the picture with my phone, but it really is gorgeous. Thanks guys, it's awesome! Love ya!

Happy Birthday!

Yes, another birthday! My nephew turns 11 today! I can't believe he's this old! I was younger than him when he was born. He's an awesome kid and I think he's great. I hope he has a great day and knows that I love him very much!

Happy Birthday!

I just wanted to say Happy Birthday to my sister Ashley!!! Hope you have a great day. I'm sure you will since you'll be getting a pedicure with me in like two hours! :-) Oh also, this isn't the greatest picture of us. Just focus on the bellies. (that was the point of the picture)

So 9 days til the due date. Haven't really had any braxton hicks so I don't feel like I'm that close to going into labor. We'll see. I'm probably wrong and will go into labor tomorrow or something lol. We're in the process of buying a condo so things have been pretty stressful around here. Hopefully we'll be able to move in in about two weeks or so. I'm very excited to have a place of our own. I can't wait to organize and move everything in! It is a bit further away from family than I'd like but it will be good for us to be in a new place and I really like the community. Plus Ty promised I can drive to Best Valley once a week to be with fam. :-) Some other exciting news, my other sister that is pregnant is also having a girl!!! So three girl cousins right in a row! YAY!

Fun Week!

Here's my niece before we went to the hospital. She was very excited about her big sister shirt.

Here's Ty holding my sister's new baby! She is so cute. She has super dark hair and a lot of it! It's so much fun having a new baby here and I can't wait til ours comes!

This is me at my baby shower on Saturday. I obviously decided to go dark with my hair. :-) Sorry about my goofy face. I hate pictures being taken right now because my face is about four times the size that it should be. yuck. :-)

I got tons of great stuff at my shower. Thanks to all those that came. I got tons of great stuff. My mom and dad got us the travel system which was a great surprise and I'm so excited to put it together. Thanks to my great sisters who planned it for me!

Obviously things have been pretty exciting around here. I'm down to 4 weeks til my due date and can't believe it. We're trying to move here soon and will hopefully be out my sister-in-law's house within a week or two. Very stressful!
