They do exist...

So around 4p.m. everyday I start thinking what the heck am I going to make for din din.  I know I need to be more planned out and on top of this but it never happens.  So without failure today I was sitting at the computer on several food sites trying to figure something out that I can make with my pantry contents.  I even called my Hubby to get a suggestion, which I am not sure why I thought that would help, but I tried non the less.  And now that I think about it Wednesday's are the hardest for me, hummm.  Any who, with no plan in hand around 4:30 the doorbell rings and who should be standing there but my UPS guy, with a perishable package in his hands!  The box read Taste of Chicago, intriguing.  I opened the box and was so excited to see dinner staring at me, like a beacon of light!  A yummy deep dish pizza pie from Chicago's world famous Lou Malrati's!  My husband's managers in Chicago sent it to us as a congrats on our pregnancy.  So I say today that I do believe there is a food fairy and I have proof, the smell coming from my oven.  Now I just need proof of the cleaning fairy, she seems to be very allusive....

Yippee Another Giveaway, Picky Sticky July 27 through Aug 2

Tish from Picky Sticky has come up with a super cute and unique way to capture these moments and as her saying goes "Just stick then click". She has developed stickers that you can put on a simple shirt or oneies. I love her maternity stickers, what a great gift for a Mommy to be.

Face Painting in the Park...

Last Saturday we went to Winter Park and strolled down Park Ave for their annual summer sale.  We came across face painting and I asked Buggie if she wanted one, after a little hesitation she was game.  She was so afraid to move that she had this look of horror through out the whole process.  But after she got a glimpse of herself she was thrilled.  She would not eat lunch because she thought eating or drinking would take the crown off, so we had to give her a little mirror to look at herself while she ate!  Love her dress, I know I do, it came from icandie.

If Jellybean is a girl...

So I figured out if Jellybean is a boy we are going to go with a robot theme.  And now I am pretty I have settled on a girl theme Matryoshka dolls!  Here are a couple I think I will use for inspiration and of course purchase... (can not wait to see what flavor Jellybean will be to see what I will get to play with!)

I would love this to make into a scrapbook of the room and our journey.  Found it at Art Kitten.

OMG these are adorable, and I love that they are the Scandinavian version.  Found them at Raven Hill

These super cute dolls are can be found at Pollyanna Cowgirl.  The colors are a perfect match for the room.

The painted house.

So for Christmas last year my parents got Avery a super cool cardboard house.  I had been holding off on putting it together.  But yesterday I thought it was about time it made an appearance.  So with finger paint in hand and her best friend Riley over, we set out to paint her house.  The house is AWESOME.  They purchased hers at Land of Nod, which they no longer carry it, but the house was made by Cardboard Design.  And their website has a lot more to choose from, let me tell you if Jellybean is a boy we are for sure getting the rocket!
