31 weeks.

hello friends...

been really busy all week... putting off creative things to make sure the house is 100% clean and ready for easter but all that's done and it's time to play again!

today i'm 31 weeks and i decided it was time for the belly to say hello. i had so much fun taking self pics this this time. i started off taking just the normal ones but then abby started kicking like crazy and i knew she was telling me that she wanted something a little creative this week...

so there it is... the bare belly pics i swore i would never ever take. haha.

yeah i'm actually pretty stoked about the instax photos too. they are for my pregnancy journal which i'm finally putting together next week and they are the first ones that have come out 100% perfectly how i wanted them to. how i love perfect!

plans for the rest of week 31...

finish a few layouts sitting out.
paint the nursery window & drawer.
color eggs & make easter cupcakes.
enjoy an amazing weekend with my sister.

inspired by: easter!

joey and i are having my sister over for easter this year and i'm really excited. i'm planning a bunch of little projects to decorate the house and goodies to treat ourselves with. i haven't seen my sister since my first trimester so i'm really happy to have the chance to spend some time with her before the baby gets here...

i'm so inspired by spring and thought i'd share some beauties to kick off the weekend of fun projects and lovelies.

umm... hello turquoise frosting. yes please.

not that i can... but giving my sister and i a basket of cute fur babies would be
completely amazing.


this table is so gorgeous.


and i know this has nothing to do with easter (really) but they were too cute not to share...
i need to pick up a little booties knit pattern asap.

hope everyone has a great weekend. i have the whole weekend with my joey which means nesting, shopping, the park, and lots of cuddling.

february sucked.

ok it didn't all suck. but there were things that did and there they are. it actually felt really good to do a really quick page about all the hate i felt for what did/didn't get done in february... and believe me i probably could have made that list longer... but putting it out there in my book felt like i was finally letting it go.

march is almost over but i already feel 100% more positive about our nesting progress and my creative work. i feel like getting up every day and making something, or getting something done... which is a huge sigh of relief compared to last month when i barely wanted to get out of bed during the week.

i'll be back with something more later... just wanted to share this little bugger.

lately i've been thinking about...


vintage us.

the expedit.

baby legs.






and of course my growing abby...


playing with paper again.

it is a gorgeous day outside. the sun is shining... there is a beautiful breeze. time to open up the windows and get crafty. i'm working on finishing a bunch of layouts that have been brewing much too long. unfortunately one of the casualties of february was my big camera. it seems that dropping it several times has made it finally pack up and quit on me. so until i get the NEW canon (it takes HD video!! yay baby videos!!) i'll have to deal with the fuzzies and a lot of trial and error.

still going.

here i go again. waiting a month and a half to post. the intention for 2010 was to get this blog back up and running and i swear it's still going to happen.

february was a tough month for me. not physically. the last month of my second trimester was actually quite easy phsyically. it seems as though every weekend we would tear apart the apartment and then i'd spend all week trying to figure out how to get it back together. the weather was awful... gave me the worst cabin/spring fever. and i just had no motivation to figure out how to remain creative while my world was a mess.

we finally have all of the furniture moved to where it's supposed to be and things are finally back in a working space. we still have some new furniture to order, a hallway to paint, and a few things to purge (still... it's easier for me than him.) but i at least feel like i can spend time on something other than cleaning & organizing.

now i can get back to all of those creative things on my list. baby and otherwise.

thank god for spring. it's coming. i know it is.
