Blueberry Cobbler

Yum! This looks so delicious! I desperately want to make this. I know. I'm not a cook. Or a baker. But it looks so yummy! And I'm feeling confident. Like I can actually make this little beauty. Hmm, I wonder if I have everything that I need. XOXO

I Found Them!

So I've been doing a little bit of shopping lately. OK, A LOT of shopping lately! My baby girl is almost here. And I just can't help myself. There are so many cute things to buy. I seriously hope that I never lose my job. Not just because I like being able to buy food and pay for my home. But because I want to spoil my little girl all that I can!

Now take a look at these cute shoes I bought. All from Old Navy. And totally affordable!!!

Look at these adorable pink shoes! Perfect at $7.50!

And this hat. I'm in LOVE! It's only $9.50.

But these pink shoes, they're why I'm so excited! They match this dress perfectly! You know, the 5th one down. And they were only $9.50. :)

Now I'm totally glad that tomorrow it Monday. I really need to get back to work. So then, maybe I'll stop shopping. But seriously, how cute are little girl things? :) XOXO

35 Weeks

Dear Baby Girl,

Well, we're 5 weeks away from officially meeting. And I'm really excited! I can't wait to hold you in my arms! Everything is ready for you. W and I, we graduate soon from our Baby and Dog class. Your mommy is also making her sacraments in a couple of weeks. And our baby shower is almost here! So exciting!

Today, we spent the entire day with Uncle Barracuda. He came to our doctor's appointment with us. Then we had some fun. We went shopping for you. Then we had some lunch. Did some more shopping. Had some dinner. Went for some dessert. And watched a few movies at home. It was a lot of fun. And a much needed break for your mommy. :)

I can really tell that you like your Uncle Barracuda a lot too! You kick for him. Every time he puts his hand on my belly, you kick for him. And he loves it! He loves to read to you. And generally, he's just in love with you!

It's crazy, because everything that you're daddy isn't, your Uncle Barracuda is. And he doesn't have to do these things. But that's how much he loves you! It almost makes me sad. But I'm glad that your Uncle Barracuda is here for you. For us actually. Maybe, well, maybe now you will understand. Not all men are bad. Some are really great guys. Your mommy has just had really bad luck in the generally area of men. Starting with your grandpa. But there are some really nice guys out there. It just takes a while to find a really great one. So when you're old enough, please be patient. :)

Well baby girl. It's about time we head to bed. Your mommy is quite tired. W is already snoring away. And we're all just so excited to meet you! My Love, you are the sunshine in your mommy's life. Love you lots!

XOXO Your Mommy

From Uncle Barracuda

Barracuda went shopping for Baby C. When? I have absolutely no clue! We got back Sunday. And Monday when I got home from work, he was sitting at the front step. Dinner in one hand. A big pink box in the other. What was inside? Lots of clothes for Baby C! :)

A cute onesie type suit. :)

And a ruffley pink romper. So cute!

An orange bubble romper. I'm sure I wore these when I was little. :)

Just look at this butterfly outfit! Adorable!!!

This flower dress just might be my favorite! Don't be shocked if Baby C has her 1st month pictures taken in it. :) I just need to find some cute pink shoes to match!

Love how stinking adorable this dress is! I bet it would look so cute with red shoes and a red headband. :)

This dress totally reminds me of where I grew up! Love it!

How cute is this flower costume!!!

I'm totally loving the polka dots here!

I just LOVE this striped, hooded bodysuit. :)

And this pink, bear snowsuit!

And you can't forget about the polka dot, bear snowsuit!

Can you see how loved Baby C is already? I just love it! And love that she has a real male role model. I'm glad that Barracuda is in our lives. And I want my daughter to know that she can depend on men. That they won't all hurt her. It's also nice to see that other people, besides me, are exciting for my little girl to come into the world. :) XOXO

Baby Got Back

This song, it came out when my bestie and I were 8 or 9. No lie! And she has always had one of those ghetto booties. You know, the big bubble butt. So this was her song. Not by her choice. But because I used to sing it to her all the time! Now, everytime I hear it, it reminds me of her!

Barracuda and I were just having a lazy day. Listening to old school music and getting my house baby proofed. That's when this song came on. And instantly, I thought of my bestie! I told Barracuda all about our childhood. And how I would bug my bestie with this song.

In the end, we agreed, it's her song. Because no matter what size she is, she still has the ghetto booty. Size 0 or size 5. She's got a booty! I'm pretty sure The Guy doesn't mind either. :) XOXO

34 Weeks

Dear Baby Girl,

We had a great appointment today. You smiled and waved at me. And it made me cry. I just can't wait to hold you in my arms. I'm so in love with you!

I've been so tired and hungry all week. But it's definitely worth it. For you. And for you to be healthy. I'd go through anything just to make sure you are one healthy and happy baby girl! But you look beautiful already. :)

This week, we haven't been doing much. Besides working. Your Uncle Barracuda really wants us to go see him and your Auntie Lola, and your Uncle Guy. We're going to surprise them. And we're leaving later with some other friends. It should be a lot of fun!

Yes, I've decided we're going to have a little fun. Our doctor OK'd it. And the flying. So we're a OK! But this will probably be our last trip until you're born. I don't mind. I really enjoy being home with you! And W of course!

Speaking of our favorite pup, we're about to graduate from our Baby and Dog Class. We've had so much fun! I hope you enjoyed it too! I know all of this work is going to pay off. And I just want you to know how excited we are to meet you! :) Now, your mommy needs to go pack for our trip.

XOXO Your Mommy

Baby Jelly Shoes

Look what I found in the clearance section at Old Navy. Baby jelly shoes! Jelly shoes were HUGE when I was little. But my parents never, ever let me have any. So I had to get these. I actually got 3 pair. For under $20. A pair of pink, clear, and these blue ones. Oh, they are so cute! I got them in different sizes too! My girl is going to have one cute closet of clothes! XOXO

Baby Showers on the Brain

I've had our baby shower on the brain lately. It's just over a month away. I can't believe it! And Baby C will be here in less than 2 months!!! Where has the time gone? I just want to know that much.

But I found this cute video on YouTube. I hope our baby shower is just as much fun. And is exciting! I really can't wait. Mostly because I want to see my friends. Lots of them are pregnant or just had babies! And I just want to hang out with them.

That's the only downfall to where I live now. I'm an easy 2-3 hours away! And I don't get to spend as much time with my friends. Not even my bestie. So I'm really looking forward to our baby shower. And time with my friends. And mostly, celebrating Baby C! XOXO

2 Years

I can't believe it's been 2 years. Yes, 2 years ago, I started this blog. Craziness! It feels crazy. So much has happened in the last 2 years. Marriage, pregnancy, a pending divorce. I just can't believe it!

I don't know how many people read this blog. But it's nice to sit down and write about my life. Whatever is going on. It's just nice. I hope someone else out there enjoys this too. Here's to another amazing year. I know this is going to be the best one yet! Because my little princess is almost here. :) XOXO

Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb

One of my friends, who just had a baby, gave me a whole basket of these! They're to add to my baby girl's bath. You are supposed to drop one into their bath. And it's supposed to relax the little ones. You know, when she gets here. And is probably a few months old. But they smell so yummy!

I put the basket on my nightstand. Because I was going to read a little last night. But the scent, it put me right to sleep. This morning, I made sure to put them in the nursery. :)

But what a fun little gift. I just wish that they were pink. I know. My favorite color is blue. But I want my little girl to have all the girly things she can get. These though, are going to be one of our staples! I can't wait!!! XOXO

33 Weeks

Dear Baby Girl,

This has been a rather uneventful week. But I've enjoyed it a lot! Because I've been home more. And, we've gotten to spend a lot of time together. Feeling each other out! Literally!

You have been moving around so much. Getting into all of your mommy's insides. I swear, you are either pulling on my ribs. Or kicking my parts. It's interesting to feel. A little weird. But really fun!

I hope you are enjoying everything inside. I can only imagine how warm, safe, and sound it is. Your mommy is trying her best to make it the safest and healthiest place for you to grow.

This week, we've been hanging out and listening to a lot of music. And reading. I know you like that. And Uncle Barracuda just loves talking to you! I know that you are really enjoying that. Because you kick and get so excited to hear his voice. :)

Your mommy is also doing more shopping. I know. I never liked to shop for myself. But I just can't help it. When I see all these adorable dresses, and ruffles, and everything so cute! I just have to buy something for my precious little girl. :)

That's been our week. Not too much crazy stuff. But a nice peaceful, summer week. Eating lots of fresh tomatoes. Enjoying evenings outside. And just being our little family! I can't wait to hold you!

XOXO Your Mommy

PS One of your future best friends was born this week too! He is adorable! Who day, he might be the love of your life. I can't wait for all of our future playdates. Mommy :)

Cute Little Dress

I just couldn't help myself! Today after work, I went to exchange some pants at Old Navy. And I seen this dress. I had to buy it! Isn't it the sweetest little thing you have ever seen in your life? It was $14.50. And they also had it in grey. I got that one too!

I know Baby C isn't due until October. But I figure that I can buy some tights for her to wear with these dresses. I just couldn't help myself. Look at those ruffles! XOXO

Another Precious Baby!

Just over a month since my friend had her daughter, my other friend had her son. I got a text with the cutest little picture this morning. He is a doll!

It's so exciting to go on this adventure with so many of my friends. To know that we're all becoming parents together. And that I will have support. And someone to talk to. You know, this is a whole new game for me. But I'm excited. I just wish my bestie was having a little one too!

Now, I can't wait to get off of work. Barracuda and I are going to drive out to meet this little guy. I can't wait to hold him! Babies are such a blessing and a gift from God. Congrats to the happy parents! XOXO

Winnie the Pooh

I really want this book for my baby girl. I've seen it online. But everytime I go to the bookstore, I can't find it. Maybe because my bestie is a total bookworm, or because she really loves Winnie the Pooh. But I want this book! By the way, she's always loved the bear, even before he was popular!

So I'm on the hunt. If you know where I can get my hands on a copy, let me know! I really want to be able to read to my little girl. I think it's so important. And I want to share amazing books like this. If you have any other must haves, please share with me in the comments. :) XOXO

32 Weeks

Dear Baby Girl,

Mommy has been very emotional this week. I'm sure you've noticed. Sorry about that. I'm just not sure what's wrong with me. Everything makes me cry. Whether I'm sad, lonely, or even happy. I'm just emotional.

And we've had some crazy cravings all week long! We finally got our chili dog today for lunch. Wasn't it good? I know I enjoyed it. I've been trying really hard to eat super healthy. It's a hard task for your momma. Because I don't know how to cook. Your grandma never taught me. She doesn't really know how to cook either. So there you go. But today, I decided we could have a chili dog. After all the veggies we've been eating.

And your mommy is getting ready for your big arrival! 2 months, we are 2 months away from finally meeting. I'm super excited! Your Uncle Guy, he wants us to wait until his birthday! That's like an extra 10 days! I'm not sure if we can do that. But whatever it takes for you to come to the world healthy and happy, I'm ready for it!

W and I are getting so anxious too! We're almost done with our class. And I know that he is going to love you so much! He already sleeps under your crib. And he really likes to feel you kick. I have to admit it, so do I. But we know you need to cook a little more. And we're OK with that. Just know, we all love you so much!

XOXO Your Mommy

Chili Dogs

I had many dreams about chili dogs last night. Many! Don't they look so good? I really want 1...or even 3! I know. It's 5 something in the morning. But this is a crazy craving. I don't even have anything to make a chili dog. And I have no clue where I might be able to get one for lunch. What I do know is...I've got to have at least 1 today! XOXO

Urban Rain Giveaway

You can win $25 from Urban Rain. How? By entering this giveaway! Hurry up! It ends tomorrow morning. But who wouldn't love a ring and some hair clips from this shop? XOXO

Do I

This song, it reminds me of my husband. It makes me cry when I hear it. Every time. I miss him. I miss sleeping in his arms. Waking up in the morning next to him. Being silly together. Losing to him at video games. Trying to cook. Just being together.

I still love him. I'm pretty sure I always will. Especially since we're having this precious baby girl together. How can I not love him? But I'm pretty sure, he doesn't love me. No matter how much I love him, he's moved on.

That's the tough part. Because He was my everything. And here I am. Left with a baby on the way, and our dog. It's hard. It's our reality. But this song, it will always remind me of him. It's everything I feel. Why didn't he give us a chance? That, I will never know. XOXO

2 for 1 Giveaway

Isn't this a cute apron? I like it. It reminds me of eating healthy. Something I have to remind myself to do every day now! Crochet Every Day is having a giveaway. You can win one of the 5 aprons that Megan has on her blog. Go take a look! You won't be disappointed. You can also win a DVD. I would like Juno. :) Good Luck everyone who enters. XOXO

Bohemian Raspberry

This is what I'm craving tonight. Doesn't that look yummy? I would give just about anything to eat a whole container of this ice cream. But I'm thinking it's not too healthy for me or my little baby. So I'm refraining. And trying very hard to be good. I'm eating some fresh raspberries instead. :) But doesn't that look yummy? XOXO
