Total Randomness...

I am trying to get a bit organized before my, "photo shoot" for naked baby mama photos this afternoon so I figured...hey why not blog?

Except I surprisingly don't have too much to blog about.

I did make an extremely elaborate lunch for my food allergic Kindergartner. I should have taken a photo but we were already running behind because of said lunch. Colin likes when I make pot pie noodles for him which you can imagine involve milk and butter. With a little creativity, I can make these for him that they are safe but I fear there may be too many steps involved for lunch.

He has his thermos, (which he is able to open by himself), a paper plate to put his noodles on and a cracker topping to spread on the top. I seriously would love to be a fly on the wall to see how he handles this today. There are also grapes, a homemade chocolate chip cookie and carrots with Sunbutter to dip.


What is it about Kindergarten that makes me miss him more during the day?


Totally wishing I was here right about now. When I start dreaming about vacation I know that I am doing a bit too much. Can I tell you how stinkin' excited I am to take our little princess here?!

I should probably start making her princess gowns now so there will be done by the next time we are able to take a trip. Because seriously if didn't try to do something totally over the top insane, (like making a dress for her for every night of our trip, or making the kids bedding or making a maternity tee shirt for this weekend's PSU game), I wouldn't be me.

At least admitting that it is insane is the first step, or so I've been told.

Yay We Made It Through The Week!

To say that this was a busy week would be a major understatement. We have ended Pre K, started soccer and had Kindergarten on Thursday and Friday.

Why do I have a feeling that I am only going to get busier from here?

I am 33 Weeks and 2 Days today and have really started to amp up my girly shopping when I have the opportunity! I mean, a little girl cannot have too many princess dresses.

So far things are going well for Colin at his new school. I'll be honest, it even more of a transition when your child comes with special instructions. So far he hasn't stopped breathing either day so I think we are on the right track. However I did find his Epi Pen still in his book bag rather than being in the nurses office. Well, I guess it's better there than in the water on the flume ride.

Gotta run my five year old is entirely too quiet so he either feel asleep or is sneaking candy. Both scenarios could need intervention.

Reason 6,256 That You Should Have Your Children Close Together....

You can actually find additional furniture pieces that match your current child's set.

We are now returning dresser number two since again, the one in my house is NOT what we ordered.


I just want to wash and fold little clothes sometime BEFORE the baby comes.

We Need To Make Bread....

This is my little guy helping me in the kitchen. He's actually becoming quite the baker. Now if I could just teach him how to sew....

2, Yes TWO, NEW Layouts....

Trust me...I'm shocked as well. I can't get over how little time that I have had this pregnancy to make stuff or how unmotivated I have been. I will say that these took a little longer to complete than usual, which actually may have more to do with me not remembering where things are in my scraproom.


I just love this, lol! The pink, the butterflies...the pink! I do feel like it is just starting to sink in that we will be having a little princess/diva in our home soon and we just. can't. wait.

She is starting to accumulate quite a few little dresses and we found a lovely store in the Lancaster outlets that sells inexpensive yet well made little girl dresses and gowns. She may or may not be allowed to wear them anywhere that she likes. :-)

This one I actually completed last night and used a Studio Calico sketch as a starting point. I think that helped since I was able to complete this start to finish in one evening. I misted the chipboard and the word favorite in the title is from an older stamp set. The ticket stub is a Stamping Bella Stamp, these really are some of my favorite stamps. Great impression, little effort.

I used punches, Studio Calico fabrips and rubons for the rest of my embellishments.

As far as a quick Faust update...we are keeping insanely busy this summer between the amusement parks, work, the gym, and getting ready for our little girl, (who still does not have a name by the way). I am 30 Weeks and 4 Days today and have gained a total of 10 pounds so far. Yeah me! (Also the reason that we rescheduled the maternity photos...I just wasn't showing enough last week). Crossing our fingers that everything continues to go smoothly so I can avoid an induction, our little girl doesn't get too big and she stays put long enough for me to get to at least 1 Penn State game this season.

That's it for always thanks for stopping by!
