Still waiting...

So we have walked and walked until me and the hubby cant walk anymore!
I have my 37 week appt in the morning and I am hoping for some good news.. Why is the end the longest???
I am so ready to meet our new little guy and starting to get a bit impatient
Since I have cleaned and RE CLEANED every nook and cranny possible , I decided to sit down for a few and change the blog. I love how it turned out! Make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to see my cute baby tidbits...

I will be back soon with some good news hopefully! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend :)

The sweetest...

I am a lucky girl , truly I have some of the sweetest friends and family ever! Maria organized an online baby shower through a blog for me . It was so fun to be online with everyone chatting and playing GAMES. She really thought of everything , sending out little party packs with BINGO cards, water bottle labels , cute little stroller pins for us to wear and even a party favor with candy. Here are just a few pics she had posted on the blog for the shower...
How pretty, huh?

It was such a fun morning for me and really made me feel like I was at home with all of them , but I cried a lot because it made me miss all of them even more!

Here is the photo I took of my belly during the shower so they could do the toilet paper
I told you it was fun and just like a real shower :)

Now up until that day I kept receiving sweet gifts in the mail from everyone and sending out thank yous , but no one was responding to me which I thought was quite odd, but then I was like Ok so not everyone is 36 weeks preggo and stuck at home like you , they will eventually write you back.... only really no one did , because they didn't want to ruin the surprise!

I just want to say THANKS again to all of you for my special day , It really meant a lot to me!!!
Love you all!!!

Here are a couple of quick pics of his new room that is finally coming together , as things arrive in the mail everyday
So hard to have to order everything you want and WAIT ..I am not very patient!!!

It took a few days but I have finally managed to get all the clothes out of the crib and hung up or put away nicely in the drawers

His changing table is being re stained as we speak , his daddy was not happy that we could not find one to match his furniture exactly (in color) so he sanded it down and we got a stain in the same color..hes a good daddy:)

And I found a neat store here in Okinawa called NOTORI where I actually found a nice wicker laundry basket and some larger baskets with matching liners for the changing table. I had ordered some from target but decided I like these ones better. Once its all finished I will post a few more photos.

Last one is the quote I custom ordered from a fun Etsy shop called SINGLE STONE STUDIOS
I highly recommend them for all your vinyl needs
Such sweet people and wonderful communication , fast shipping ..cant say enough about them!

I wanted this quote to hang in his room because of this book, it is one of my faves

This photo makes it look tiny , but its not the letters are about 6 inches tall and 36 inches long , fits really nice above his bed....

So that's pretty much all I have been up too .
We did celebrate our 13 year anniversary this week and that was nice. I couldn't have picked a better husband , he truly is the best you BABE even more after all these

I had an appt yesterday , I am now 36 weeks and 5 days WOHOO , there is light at the end of this tunnel ,haha. I didn't see my normal Dr. , he decided to take a 3 week vacay when I am about to have a baby! Anyhow she said I am on my way hopefully , dialated to 1 and 50% thinned , but he is still rather high . So we'll see...

Anyhoo hope all of you are having a fabulous week :)
