And the nursery is...almost done...

Little Reese could arrive any time in the next couple of weeks and I think we are as ready as we can be. The nursery is pretty much done. The only things missing are; pictures of our beautiful little Reese to fill the emty picture frames, and the beautiful hand made baby quilt that will hang above the dresser. It was made by my very talented and gifted friend Keri Jones with many of my other friends pitching in. It's not quite complete, but I've seen it and it matches the room perfectly. I can't wait to hang it. It will definitely be a treasure for Reese to keep.

Thank you to all our wonderful friends and family members that have given us such generous and thoughtful gifts. Because of you we have everything we need for Reese to arrive! We are truly blessed.

I've been tagged...

Ok, here's what I’m supposed to do:
list 3 joys, 3 fears, 3 current obsessions/collections, 3 surprising facts and then tag 5 other people.

1. My husband coming home from work. I miss him all day.
2. Feeling my little baby kick and move around inside me
3. Anytime I get to spend with my family
4. Shopping for my little girl on the way
5. Cooking
6. Swimming

I really could name so many more...

1. Something happening to Arnold or our baby
2. My water breaking in a public place. Like in the middle of a meeting with one of my clients. I would die
3. Labor

Can you tell I'm pregnant?

1. Learning everything I can about being a good mom
2. Organizing or cleaning
3. Cooking

1. I grew up traveling the world. I still love to travel. (I've been to 4 of the 7 continents. Only 2 to go. I don't think I'll ever make it to Antarctica, nor do I care.)
2. I just don't understand the scrapbooking obsession here in Utah. I don't see the fun in it. Sorry to all of you who do. I still love you.
3. I'm overly independent, but trying to learn how to ask for more help. My husband is trying to help me overcome this flaw. I blame it on almost 33 years of single life.

Now I have to tag five people:
1. Chellese
2. Heather M.
3. Erika
4. Natasha J.
5. Julie

This one's for you Cindy!

It's a funny feeling when you wake up every morning, look in the mirror, and realize that your body is continuing to morph into something you recognize less and less each day. I'm now 35 weeks pregnant and not only have I lost my stomach but my ankles, my hands, my neck, my chin and depending on the knees sometimes disappear as well. To all those women out there that are all belly and don't get to experience the joy of swelling beyond recognition...I hate you! :)
But I still love my little Reese and willingly submit to what ever is necessary for her to join our family. But in the words of my good friend Keri Jones, "Could this kind of torture really be a part of the Lords plan for 'Happiness'???"
