Updates, updates

Been away for a while, so sorry in advance for the LONG wordy post.

First off, I wanted to thank Sandy a la Mode for hosting a giveaway for me.  She is such a sweet girl!  You should definitely check out her cute blog!

I've been really bad about blogging when my shop has been featured in other blogs, but here is the most recent.  Oh, hello friend has featured my twisted rope bracelet.  Thank you!!!

I FINALLY used my Urban Outfitters gift card that I won in a giveaway back in May!  Here's what I got:

So cute right?!  I have been looking for some nude/taupe shoes for a while.  And these were free!

Pregnancy Stuff...

I'm currently 32weeks4days pregnant.  I have a little over 7 weeks (give or take) before I get to meet our little boy.  Part of me feels like that's light years away and the other part of me feels like "Oh my gosh nothing is ready!"  Exciting either way.  We haven't even started working on the nursery yet, because the baby furniture we ordered (crib, dresser, changing table - a gift from hubby's parents) has not arrived.  We ordered everything in August.  It's been very frustrating to say the least.  I will definitely post pictures when I get it all done.  Along with the baby shower photos! 

We've been to a few birthing classes already and it's been very informative.  I highly recommend attending those if you're pregnant.  This weekend we have a baby care & breastfeeding class.  That will be interesting. 

Big New News...

Oh and I'm also very proud to announce... drum roll please...

We just purchased our first home!!

It's been a long time coming, but well worth it.  It's a custom built home and so we get to pick out all our amenities.  I'm so excited!  They should be breaking ground at the end of the month or so, which means we'll be moving about end of February or mid March.  It'll be a while before I have anything to take a photo of, but I will be sure to take photos as the construction progresses.  Yay us!

I hope everyone is doing well.  Have a great evening!
