"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!" -Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

I can't believe I have yet to post about my new business! I guess I have been pretty wrapped up in all the baby stuff I'm doing. Well, I've started a new business for myself! I am officially a new thirty-one gifts consultant! What is Thirty-One? Well, Thirty-One is a company that sells a variety of cute products. You name it, they probably have it. Everything from bags, to wallets, to baby bibs, to storage containers/totes. I can't name everything because it would take too long, so go to my website and look around for yourself! I am positive you'll fall in love with everything the first time you see it! That's what happened to me!

Every month there are specials that happen and for the month of February monogramming is only $1. It is usually $6, so that's a savings of $5 on each product! Click here to read more about it. The new spring/summer catalog will go into effect February 1st and you will not be disappointed with the new fabrics and products they are offering! Just click on my website and look around and if anything jumps out at you just place an order and voila! Or...if you are interested in hosting a Thirty-One party or a catalog party send me an email or leave me a comment and you can earn free and half priced items for yourself!

I am very excited about this opportunity I have and I want everyone I know (and don't know) to be able to experience it with me!

Nesting, yes!

Well, from my last post I had said that I thought I was nesting...well, it's official I am! This past weekend, I got up and started to do anything and everything I could in Leah's nursery and around the house. I was able to wash all her clothes and put some finishing touches on her nursery. I have been sleeping through the night, but I have been getting up very early every morning. Today I am so excited because I have 2 showers for Leah! One is this morning at my mom's and the other is tonight with all my cheerleaders and their moms. It is going to be a long day, but a really fun day! I can't wait! We could probably call this weekend the weekend of showers because tomorrow one of my best friends is throwing me another shower! Woo hoo!

There's no really different news on Leah's status. She's still really warm and comfortable in her little home, but everything could change any day! Adam and I are sitting on go and are very anxious to finally see her! We'll just have to wait and see!

Nesting, maybe?

I don't know, but I might have entered into the nesting stage. (Or I could just be "wanting" to be in the nesting stage because I'm so anxious to meet my little girl). For the past two days I have had sudden bursts of energy to get things done. Usually I'm either in bed or asleep on the couch by 9:00pm, but as you can see it's 10:15 and I'm wide awake writing a post! I know...it's a miracle! I'm dying to get things done in Leah's nursery, but I keep getting delayed. Adam and I were going to go to Hobby Lobby today to pick up a few things to do some wall art in her room, but they were closed. Needless to say I was disappointed, but I do respect their willingness to be closed for a day of worship and rest. Then, I had waited all day to get some pictures developed to put in her nursery and waited an hour at CVS to get them done...but did that happen...nope. I got frustrated and my emotions got the best of me and I left. We're supposed to be getting her bedding sometime this month and I can't wait to put everything together! We are also ordering a very cool wall decal from one of my favorite sites. I'm very excited about it! Oh! We also went and got Leah a coming home outfit today. We wanted to get her some different sized outfits to bring to the hospital for her to come home in because we don't know how big she'll be. Speaking of clothes, I'm so ready to start washing all her clothes (which will take me about a week)...but I'm waiting to see if I get any of the "Dreft" detergent at any of my showers.

I know Adam is about tired of me being pregnant. He's ready for me to be normal again and for all my mood swings and emotional outbursts to subside. Only 5 more weeks babe (or sooner)! Well, I've got to start winding down...work always comes on Monday! Goodnight!
