Baby Update

I know I know, I have nothing else to talk about then our baby? Yep, you're right! You know it's been a long time since I've felt good enough to take pictures when our camera battery has been dead for months and I'm just barely remembering! So no fun pictures of us, no exciting events occuring (well, except for the growing babe), nope.
Had our 13.5 week appointment today and the doctor said "everything looks PERFECT". Yahoo! I like to hear the word perfect on something I can't control :) I've lost 4 pounds in 4 weeks, babies heartrate is 160, and all of my levels are just right on the dot! And we have an ultrasound scheduled for May 3rd to find out the sex! Loving my doctor, she's fabulous! Now we just have 4.5 weeks to finalize on a baby name. Adam is so excited and can't wait to find out so he can start painting the baby room. . . so cute, but scary :)

Nursery Ideas

Okay, confession. I'm a bit of an obsessive planner. Okay, a lot a bit. But I just prefer to plan rather then cross my fingers and hope for the best! Kill me.
So, even though we have about two months left until we find out what the sex is (I know, I'm dying!) I've started "browsing for nursery ideas. Mind you, I'm not huge into themes, so most of these pictures aren't themed at all, but these are all I have found so far. Just thought I'd share and if you have any ideas or pictures you love for nurseries, let me know and add the link in the comments!
P.S. I'll probably be making my own bedding, so I'm not restricted with that. I can pretty much make anything I can dream up, as long as I set my mind to it!

This is one of my favorites. Not too baby-ish that it won't grow up with her, and I'm loving the idea of "no pink" in the bedroom. She'll be covered in it, why not make the room free from it?

This one is my mostest fav one so far. Once again, no pink and I'm loving the crisp white with the bold red and light blue. Could also be used as a boy room if I changed some accessories and avoided floral

I like this room because it's really warm feeling and the pink isn't too pink, more like a soft rose color. So weird, I love pink normally, but I think since almost every baby girl room has pink, my rebellious side is coming out!

This one is similar to my favorite (with the white paneling on the walls) but used rose and pale yellow. So springy!

Okay, all of these boy rooms are themed, but do you know how hard it is to find kinds rooms without a theme? And girl rooms without pink? Murder.
Loving the cars on the walls, though. If I did this I don't think I'd make the bedding to match though. Too matchy matchy is not my thing
I like this one because it's not "beachy", it's nautical. Though a surfer room like Brooke Franco did for her boys would be super cute and fun! Love the navy stripes and bold red.

And of course, this post would not be complete without a cowboy room! But the more I think about it, the more I'm steering away from this. It seems too predictable for Pete's little boy to have a cowboy room, and I don't like to be predictable. I might have to fight him about this one though :)
Now it's your turn. Let me know what you think (as long as it's not "I hate all of these pictures!" That might hurt my feelings . . . )

Belly bulge

The search has begun. Now that we're quickly approaching the second trimester ( yay! only 1.5 weeks left!) my thoughts have turned to my waredrobe. Rather then buying maternity when my other clothes no longer fit, and dropping hundreds of dollars at once, I'm trying to buy slowly and on sale :) So what I'm asking you is, where do I look for cute maternity that's not going to cost 40 bucks for a T-shirt? Come on Ladies, spill the beans!

Sick and Tired

Ever heard the saying "I'm just sick and tired of being sick and tired?" Welcome to my life :)

What, you may ask, is the reason for this overwhelming sense in my everyday?

Is it work?

No doubt work is a big part of it. With three guys quitting last month (one of them being Adam's boss and my go-to guy) and not having replaced any of them, my work load has doubled. Raise? Nope. Extra appreciation? Good luck!

Perhaps a little sickness running through the office?

No doubt there has been the usual rounds of colds and flus, plus I did just get the Swine flu vaccine, which could be adding to my "sick and tired"-ness.

But the main culprit for constantly feeling sick and tired?
