Life Happened!

Wowzers! It's been almost 3 months since my last blog post. Well, I am officially now a mom. Our baby girl entered the world on May 23rd. I don't want to disclose too many details because I am weird like that. You just never know who might be reading your blog and will want to steal your baby. Like I said I am weird or maybe a tad over-protective. I will say she is the most beautiful baby I have ever seen. I am so proud of her and I have lots of great plans for her and I'm sure she will some for me. I have a few details left to do in the nursery and then I will promise to share some pics.  I probably only have 2 blog readers left. (Hee hee) So, for my two blog readers I will leave you with a picture of the cutest little piggies.

I am still here!

Happy Easter to all of you and your families! Well, we have about a month left until the big due date. I have been so fortunate to have such a healthy pregnancy. I am anxious and nervous about meeting this little person.  I am worried about labor of course and not sleeping and all of those other fun things that a new mom gets to experience.  I don't want this to turn into a just a mommy blog but I think it might be one for a little bit. I really appreciate all of your sweet comments and I know I have lost quite a bit of readers, so for you few dedicated readers I thank you for hanging in there with me.  My blogging will return and so will the projects but for now I must take care of myself and my family. I am still working my full-time job and plan on returning after maternity leave so my blog is not going to be a top priority. Unless, there is any nice person out there who would like to pay me to blog for a  full-time job. :)  On a side note, we almost have our nursery done and I just ordered this bedding from Target.  I love how it can be for either a boy or a girl.

Loving Life!

I have about 9 weeks left until my little babe arrives and I have never been more excited!  I have so many things that I need to get done and just have to keep telling myself that it will all fall into place.  We still don't know the sex of the baby which is fine with me. Our next ultrasound won't be until 3 weeks before my due date I think we are just going to wait until the big day to find out.  I don't have any projects to share with you yet, but I promise you as soon as I get everything in place in the nursery I will show you some pictures.  Here are some things that I am loving right now.

Lush Massage Bar - It is supposed to prevent stretch marks and relieve an itchy belly. I  use this stuff in the morning and and at night. I haven't seen any stretch marks yet!

I love this tumbler from Moosejaw, I don't know why but it is so much more fun to drink from a straw.  It also encourages me to drink more water and to stay hydrated.  Starbucks also sells these types of tumblers!

I love these types of pants...I have a few from Nike that are so comfortable! They have just been growing right with me.


I bought a Be Band similar to this one at Target. It has made my non-maternity pants last a little bit longer. You just put the band over your un-buttoned pants and you have yourself a pair of maternity pants. I think it also gives my belly a little extra support.

I am in love with this bedding from Skip Hop !  It is so stinkin' cute and the colors are perfect for a gender neutral room.

I hope you are all doing well in blogland....please stay tuned for upcoming projects!

CSN Stores Giveaway!

I know how all of you love giveaways! Well, I have been given another opportunity to give one of my lucky readers a $40.00 gift card to CSN stores.  If you have never been to CSN stores site than you should really go check them out.  I have been wanting to re-do my home office for quite some time now. I love the home office furniture selection that CSN stores offers!  Here are a few of my favorite pieces from CSN.

Isn't this office chair to die for?  I love how elegant and curvy this desk is! I could see myself spending hours here. I would probably do more day dreaming than working though.  :)

I think this desk would be very functional for a home office. The shelving alone would help with getting my stuff organized. I like how it doesn't take up a huge amount of space in the room. 

I would love to have this book case with filing cabinet drawers for all of my crafts. I have a lot of scrap booking paper and I could use something like this to keep it all organized. 

I am going to make this giveaway simple for all of my bloggy friends.

All that I ask of you is that you leave an entry on this post telling me how you would spend your $40 gift card.  If you would like to become a follower that would be great but it isn't necessary. So, all you need to do is leave your 1 comment on how you would spend the gift card.  Good luck to all of you!

Rules For The Giveaway:  This contest is open to US and Canadian readers. If you choose to purchase an item that does not have free shipping, you will be responsible for shipping costs. If you are in Canada, there may be Canadian fees that you will be responsible for. You must be 18 to enter.

The giveaway will end Monday, March 7th 2011.  I will pick the winner by using a random number generator. The winner will then receive an e-mail from me and will have 48 hours to reply before a new winner is chosen. Thanks for stopping by and taking advantage of this great giveaway.  I look forward to hearing about how you would spend the $40 giveaway!

Nursery Inspiration

I am sorry it has taken me this long to blog.  I almost forgot how to login to blogger. I had become a little obsessed with the blogging and I have had to just let myself walk away from it.  We all know how long it can take to write a blog and it was just consuming too much of my time.  I probably won't be blogging as much as I would like, especially since I will will be taking on a new role as a mother.  I want to thank all of you who continue to read this blog and I am still surprised when I see I a new follower.

I wanted to leave you with some nursery inspiration pictures.  All photos are courtesy of Project Nursery

As you can see I am loving the gray walls with all the splashes of color. I am using a gender neutral theme.  We had an ultrasound a few weeks ago and since my baby is already stubborn or very modest we were not able to find out the sex. I was not disappointed at all though because I got to see our baby and he/she is healthy.

I love this little bird house! What a cute idea?

Check out the moose heads!

I want this elephant hamper!

I still have a lot of work ahead of me, but I have already bought the paint. It is an actual Crayola crayon color called Timber Wolf and is made by Dutch Boy . I have been collecting little things to put around the nursery and I am ready to start pulling everything together.
