BUMPDATE // 35 Weeks

**Super behind on posts.. I told y'all last week I would catch up then but when I look around and see things that need to be done, it's hard to sit down on this ancient laptop that could take up to an hour to write one post/wait for pictures to upload. So here I am, trying to catch up little by little.

HOW FAR ALONG// 35 weeks

I have been taking my chalkboard picture, just haven't taken/had time to upload to my ancient laptop. I'll get that updated hopefully by the weekend! Not making any promises.

And I am over taking it too! But I have to finish what I started! Coach took the 35 week one and I told him how tired of it I was. He said, yeah me too so this can be the last one? I said, sure if we have a baby this week! He took back what he said because he didn't think it would be a good idea with him being out of town. Ha!

BABY SIZE // About the size of a honeydew melon.

Baby Hopper doesn't have much room to maneuver now. She is over 18 inches long and weighs about 5 1/4 lbs. Because she is so snug in the womb, she is isn't likely to be doing dramatic somersaults anymore, but the number of movements you feel should remain about the same.
Her kidney's are fully developed now, and her liver can process some waste products. Basic physical development is now mostly complete - her main job over the next few weeks is to put on weight.

MY SYMPTOMS // In no particular order..

I came home a couple days last week and had some cankle action. I've been told its the heat - we have had 95++ days with some serious humidity - Thank goodness, they have gone down!
I was really tired last Thursday..
No stretch marks I have been oiling my belly with Almond Oil and a Young Living Lavender and Frankincense combo..
Rings are still on..
Eyes seem really puffy to me and it really bothers me. Just makes me look even more tired than I already feel..

MATERNITY CLOTHES // Word. And thanks to Danielle, I broke down and paid $30 for some Target maternity gym pants.. best $30 these days I've ever spent. I washed them 3 days in a row just so I could wear them again and again.

SLEEP // Last Thursday night, I went to bed totally fine and woke up about 2:30AM with some serious nerves. I didn't go back to sleep until around 5ish and had to be up around 8:30 for work. Surprisingly I was OK working and felt even better when I got my hands on some YL Peace & Calming from Deneen at work. OMG I felt so much better after that and for her prayer over me.

MOVEMENT // Dance parties anyone?? I love it even tho sometimes she makes me jump at some of her moves. And I try SO HARD to catch her on video but as soon as I pick up my phone, hit record, she STOPS immediately. Oh my goodness, she's a smart one.. hopefully I can get something soon.

CRAVINGS // No food is good to me these days. My MIL did cook me some veggies last week with sweet potatoes and that was pretty good! I know I could eat smoothies and black cherry or pomegranate popsicles all day long. Menchie's a Black Tart Cherry right now and I'm thinking I really need that one yogurt machine in our house. Ha!

GENDER // It's a girl!

WHAT I MISS // Normal clothes.. being able to easily pop out of bed.. being able to bend down.. those types of things.

WORK OUTS // None but I have been stretching some because my lower back and hammies are really tight.

EMOTIONS // Besides my little nervous night, I've been OK.

DREAMS // None that I remember...

HUBBY'S THOUGHTS // Before he left for Ft. Myers Thursday, I asked him if he thought he should go to Nashville this weekend. He said, I have to go.. I said, NO. You don't have to go. I just want you to be fully aware that she could come at any moment at this point. He replied, Oh I am fully aware and I am on guard. 

3 AMIGAS THOUGHTS // They have been really good! After our last shower and bringing everything in, they sniffed and sniffed and were very curious.


Having our last shower on June 20th. It was amazing and so much fun! This is a due post too!

Hey friends! 
So I know I have been super lame over here on this corner of the .com world this week. I'm sure this isn't the longest I've gone without posting something but just wanted to say HEY I'M STILL KICKING. Which, if you follow on Instagram, I know you've seen a few posts lately. 
To sum up the week, I've pretty much worked and manned the homestead. Coach is eyeballs deep into baseball and it's mostly just been me, The Amigas, and Baby Hopper around here. 
Saturday was a super busy day.. I worked and then we had our last shower, which was absolutely amazing! I can't wait to share with y'all some of my favorites for our little girl.
Afterwards, me and SIL did a little Target shopping and then I passed. out.

Sadly, I woke up Sunday morning to some bad news.. my Aunt Kay passed away that morning. My grandmother's, Mama Jane, sister from Kentucky. Remember we visited there a couple years ago.
I am SO THANKFUL that she was able to attend our shower back in May and that we, and especially Mama Jane, were able to see her and spend time together.
Sunday was spent all day at Mama Jane and Pop's, except for a few hours I spent with my Dad for Father's Day...
... and today was spent with Coach at home. It was so nice for him to be home, even tho he has been working non stop. 
Please keep my Grandparents in your prayers.. they are traveling to Kentucky tomorrow and Mama Jane was taking the news pretty heard yesterday. 
Thank you in advance!
I've got A LOT of catching up to do in the blogging world and I'll be doing just THAT this week!

Let's get Organized! AKA the Nesting Phase

Over the past several months, I have cleaned out, cleaned out, cleaned out and feel like we have gotten somewhat organized.
In no particular oder, here are a few things I've done in the house...

We had a basket full of hair samples I've gotten from the beauty supply store and hotel shampoos, conditioners, and lotions. I found some extra mason jars and separated all of them accordingly. For the past couple of trips to Target, TJ Maxx, and Michaels I have looked for some kind of small chalkboard stickers/labels that I could put on them but I haven't had any luck. So until then, they sit like this in the guest bathroom.

All my jewelry was in the guest bedroom, which is now the nursery, in a dresser.. a lot went in the yard sales and what didn't go I found these super cute wooden trays at TJ Maxx. These were the only two I could find out of several locations so after I went back a little later to hopefully find more....

... these were all I could find. I was so ready to just have everything in one place I went ahead and settled for these.

After our closet got finished, I found these baskets at Bed, Bath, & Beyond. 
FYI guys don't ever throw those coupons away because they will take them even if they are expired!! They'll also let you use as many as you have on one purchase!

The dog food was separated into two plastic bins but I found this bin at TJ Maxx and now the whole 40lb bag goes into one place. Whoo hoo! 

 This past weekend, I spent two days in the kitchen throwing out appliances that we didn't need, deep cleaning, and organizing drawers.. including this one. It was a disaster. I had previously used this tray for makeup organization but now has a new home in the kitchen.

I found these beauties at TJ Maxx! I already have a few copper pieces in the kitchen and thought these would be perfect to add! I LOVE them!
Not really any organization going here but I couldn't pass them up thinking how great they would look in the house.

I found these in a magazine laying by the pool with Amber.. I'd love to add these to the kitchen someday as well!

Man does it feel great to have all this done!
