Meet Annabelle

My friend Laura that I've known since 6th grade finally had her baby! She was due on Christmas day but ended up being born on the 17th (A day after Laura's birthday)  They live in Ohio and originally hadn't planned on coming out here until the middle of January =(  Laura texted me on the 23rd and said she was coming out here this week! This made my Christmas. haha! So, here she is- Annabelle Christine. Born Dec. 17th. 5lbs 13 oz. She's so cute and so tiny!

Love that little nose! 

Marley and Annabelle. Marley was very good around her. I'll admit I was a little scared on the drive over that Marley was going to be a crazy child.

26 weeks and emergency rooms

This week marks 26 weeks. I'm having a hard time getting comfortable at night, but otherwise everything is going good.

Yesterday we got to spend 3 hours in the emergency room.  I was at home with Marley. She was playing and I was watching tv.  All of a sudden my vision got really blurry and I could only see straight ahead.  The cat jumped up next to me, but I couldn't see her. I called Mike and he came home from work and we went to the er.  My temperature was fine. My blood pressure was fine. Heart rate was fine (mine and Corn's)  We basically sat there for three hours, then a nurse came in and said we could go home. So not sure why my vision messed up, and they didn't say either. They just said to make a follow up appointment with my dr.  Glad I only have 14-16 weeks left...

Oh and here's one just because-

25 weeks and the first snow

I had a dr. appt this week. Nothing really new to report. Everything looks good still. Can't believe how fast time is going.

Marley has been asking if it's Christmas yet and when it's going to snow and why it hasn't snowed yet.  I found a chocolate calendar to help her see when it's almost Christmas. She loves it!

That day was a trumpet. 
We finally had our first snow last night. Not a lot at all, but Marley absolutely freaked when she saw it.

Addicted to Pinterest

I've heard everyone talking about Pinterest but never really got it. I finally decided to join and see what all the hype is about. I AM ADDICTED!! There are so many things on there. From recipes to hair bows to organization ideas. I read a blog called Young House Love and they occasionally have Pinterest challenges. They ask their readers to actually do one of the things they have "pinned" Their challenge is what really gave me the push to join. I didn't participate when they had their challenge, but I did decide to do one of my pinned items.

Under my kitchen sink is DISGUSTING!! There is no bottom to the cabinet so everything sits on the concrete floor. Last summer the pipes backed up so the floor is gross, and the wall back there is nasty too. Anyways, I decided my first task would be to utilize my space better. I saw this idea on pinterest and had to give it a shot.

Here's my cabinet. See it's nasty!

After I installed my $3 towel bar from K-Mart

There ya have it. Basically it's a $3 towel bar and then you hang spray bottles from it. It took me about 20 minutes, but probably half that time was spent trying to fit comfortably under there to nail the bar up. (My belly is getting in the way a lot more lately)

My goal is to do at least one thing that I pin a week. Next up is an awesome bib for Baby Corn! I will definitely be back with an update on that!
