I have to give credit when credit is due and toot my own horn just a tad, if you will.  I have done really well with watching my weight for 30 weeks thus far in my pregnancy and am right on target, but I also have to admit that like every other pregnant woman, I have cravings.  Let's just say that all of those "cravings" have not been fruit and veggies.  So, here are a few of my loves for today...
                                                These quickly became a must on my way home.

 Daniel forgot to lay out chicken to grill tonight soooo it was one of those "you are on your own for dinner" kind of nights.  I chose Totinos pepperoni pizza and let's just say I was NOT disappointed that he forgot to thaw the chicken.  Two crazy things I have craved during the last 30 weeks has been Totinos pizzas and Ramen Noodles.  Hey, Daniel hasn't complained with each complete full meal for me ringing in at a whopping $1.25 or less!!!

I am absolutely LOVING every single thing about my little man's room.  It is by no means close to being done, but one of my favorite things so far is his crib and bedding.  I ended up going with Pottery Barn Kids Jungle Friends bedding and I could not be happier with it.  It has been SO fun getting things ready for our little angel to get here and so much more to do!

You can't really tell in this picture, but his rocking chair is baby green minky dot fabric that is so unbelievable soft.  It is my favorite kind of fabric for babies because of the softness.  My sister, Brooke, is in the process of monogramming a minky dot blanket and burp cloth my mom bought for him.  I really can't get enough of it.  To be completely honest, I find myself drifting in to his room for no reason these days just to sit and rock in this incredibly soft chair and picture him snuggling into my chest sleeping away.  I literally can not wait!!!

I'm also loving the fact that my sister, Brooke, decided to start monogramming because if you know anything about me, you know that I am completely OBSESSED with items that are monogrammed.  Seriously, you name it and I probably have my name or now my child's name monogrammed on it.  She has done so many wonderful things for me so far already, but I think one of my favorites so far has to be Hampton's Sunday diaper bag.  It is baby blue and white gingham material and a bit smaller for a diaper bag so I decided to use it just as a Sunday diaper bag (per my other sister, Dana's, suggestion).  She is a mother of 2 and knowing much about being a mom she has been a great guide along the way these past 30 weeks.  I look forward to her enlightening me on many more "first time mom do's and dont's".  I am very fortunate to have 2 older and much wiser wonderful sisters who both have amazing talents to share with me.  I can't wait for Hampton to meet his 2 beautiful aunts.

Dana, Brooke, and I in Jamaica!

And as always, I am loving my amazing husband!
Like I say everyday, I have so much to love and be thankful for.  What are you loving today?

  1. Hampton's nursery looks so good! I love your bedding and your chair looks so comfortable. Can't wait to see the rest of the room! Pizza has definitely been one of my indulgences too!
