Okay, now baby talk...

I'm checking into the hospital Wednesday night and getting induced on Thursday.  Hopefully, baby cooperates and arrives later that day.  We're so excited to meet him and be his mommy and daddy!!!  We'll be there until Saturday or so.  I'm really looking forward to sharing the first photos with all of you.  Stay tuned. 

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year!!!

Good Peoples: One of my recent clients Chalice ordered several custom linen drawstring pouches from me and requested to have a different name stamped onto each pouch.  I had no idea what she was using them for, but I was happy to fulfill her request.  She just told me that they are being sent to Uganda and being filled with Christmas goodies for these amazing girls.  Katie Davis (pictured below) has a heart of gold and these are her 14 daughters.  I'm am just so incredibly happy that I was a part of all this.  There are still good people in the world.

Baby Shower Photos Part 2

Finally got a chance to get more baby shower photos up. We had such a good time. These were taken October 24, 2010.

i was 31w1d in this photo.  i'm just loving this one.

hubby loves to rub my belly. i think baby likes it too.

i think this one is so sweet.

me and my sister myra.  everyone says we look alike... i dunno...

my grandma and my mom.  i heart this photo so much.  i love my family.

my mother-in-law and my mom.  the best mommies in the whole world!

a full house.  we were so grateful for the great turnout.  we have amazing friends and family.

the presents kept piling up.  such generous gifts.  baby stewart would approve.

chocolate chip cookies favors i made.  sweet right?


Getting my suitcase packed

For some reason I've been slacking on getting my suitcase fully packed for the hospital.  From my last stay at the hospital I definitely made note that I need to buy some indoor/outdoor slippers.  I just ordered these cuties online today, so hopefully they'll be here before baby.  I've never owned a pair of furry slippers or shoes like these before but they're pretty cute, a good price, and since it's almost impossible to get my own socks on... they should work out great.

i also ordered this nursing lounge set. 
*it finally arrived.  it's so incredibly soft.  i love it.  going back for more.

I'm 37weeks3days today and even though I'm so uncomfortable and achey all over, it's been so fun getting to experience all of this.  Being pregnant is such an amazing gift and I couldn't be more excited to hold my baby boy for the first time.  I could cry just thinking about it.  My friends and family have been so amazing through all of this.  Always willing to help out.  And my hubby... he had a little difficulty adjusting in the beginning and never knew what to say or do, but he's really pulled through and I couldn't have done this without him (well duh... obviously... lol... you know what I mean).  Yay for babies!!!

P.S.  This is on my Christmas wishlist.  My hubby and I always exchange lists.  Much less stressful.  I'm not even a big The North Face person, but I need a winter boot with good tread and that's still darn cute.  I think these nailed it!

*the grey ones in 6.5 are sold out everywhere.  i knew this was a good one when i saw it! 
i wonder if hubby bought up the last one.  crossing fingers.


A wedding

I just want to say sorry real quick for not visiting your blogs like I used to.  Everything takes 10 times longer for me and I am so ready to have this baby.  Our laptop died earlier this year so we've been using our new desktop and after you get used to a laptop, it's hard to sit at a desk for this long. 

Anyway, my friend got married over the weekend.  I was having a lot of contractions earlier that day (we had actually gone to a memorial in the morning as well), so I wasn't sure if I was going to make it.  It was at the Crystal Ballroom in downtown Portland.  Just gorgeous!  I'm so happy for the newlyweds.  Such a fun and exciting time.  The lighting wasn't the best for my camera, but here's some photos.  Please excuse the uncomfortable look on my face... it was because I was very uncomfortable.  Everything is aching. 

instead of statement jewelry, i opted for a statement piece of clothing.  i just love that lace jacket.

jewelry | swarovski hoop earrings, tiffany & co necklace, my wedding rings

i wore flats with my floor length dress.  now you can see how tall hubby really is!

the decor was just beautiful.

i love me some buffets!

really pretty wedding cake.

the lovely newlyweds.  so happy for you two!

We left after they cut the cake.  I just couldn't get my feet to dance the night away with the rest of them.  Plus, it was insanely difficult weaving in between all the chairs and tables during the reception to get to the bathroom.  My belly has gotten so HUGE!  I just can't believe it.  I wonder if Baby Stewart is going to be a big boy?

P.S.  Did you know about this?

i've always loved pomegranates but hated how hard it was to eat.  pom has done all the work for you!


New items in my shop!

I'm right in the middle of several VERY large orders, but squeezed in some time to post some new items in my etsy shop.  Pretty things just for you... and they come packaged in adorable drawstring pouches, perfect for the holidays.  *wink wink*

Heading out to my friend's wedding tomorrow.  This is what I'm wearing...

I gave it a trial run at Thanksgiving.  It's so comfortable I could sleep in it.  I wore flats like everyone suggested, so it's a bit long but I absolutely love it!  There I am in the background.  For some reason we didn't take a family photo like we usually do.  I did win Jenga though.  Woo hoo!

See... don't I look comfy?!

I won!  Yay!

Hubby won 1 round too.  Yeah, we're THAT good.

P.S. I will get a better photo of me in the dress tomorrow. 

Still trying to figure out what accessories to wear. 
Should I wear something dramatic or simple???
