Getting ready for our little Princess

I feel like we are getting close to being ready for Kinslee Grace. McHunny detailed my car and installed the car seat last week!! It is so weird to drive around with a car seat without a baby in it. We are trying to get Seamus use to the car seat in the car since he is use to having full range of the back seat. He wants nothing to do with the back seat right now and just sits up front when I take him on rides. I have almost all her clothes washed and put away just one more load to do and that will be set. I do have to finish her room but I do not think it will be how I want it by time she gets here. I am having a hard time organizing it and figuring out how I want everything set up. I want it to look cute but I want it to be functional. If you have any ideas shoot them my way! Last week I did put Kinslee's vibrating seat together, packed our bags and now I just feel like we are waiting for her. There are a few other things I would like to get finished but I should have those small projects finished within the next few days. As soon as I have Kinslee's room pretty much finished I will upload pictures but right now it is still messy :) Until next time, take care!

This Week = So Done

This week has been crazy busy for me. I would have never guessed I would stay this busy being a stay at home wife. How did I ever get anything done when I was working full time?? Oh yeah I didn't...I think after tomorrow I will be completely caught up on housework and after Sunday I will be finished with classes!! This week has been full of making phone calls, setting appointments, filling out applications, school work and house work. I am not going to lie, I kind of like this whole stay at home thing...until I run out of things to do that is. Some girls I worked with surprised me with a baby shower on Wednesday. I thought just a few of us were going out to lunch to have some girl time and gossip. It was funny how it went down and I was totally surprised. Brooke insisted on picking me up from my house so I just went with it and did not argue. We were all suppose to ride together but when Brooke picked me up she told me Bri and Lauren were not ready yet and we would go pick them up at Bri's house. On the way there Brooke was telling me how Bri forgets or loses everything so when we arrived at Bri's house and she ran outside all stressed cause she couldn't find her keys I thought nothing of it. We go into Bri's house and everyone yell surprise. There was about 8 or 9 people there and her house was decked out in baby stuff. I feel so very blessed to have these women in my life. I have known them for a little over 6 months and they have been such a blessing. Most women would not do things like this for co-workers or friends they have had for such a short period of time. The things they have done for me and my family I can't say my best friend would have done (She is kind hearted but different then these women). I know God has put them in my life for a reason and I am starting to see why because I am learning so much from them (More on that later). Today McHunny and I had our maternity pictures done so stay tuned for the pictures as soon as I get them:) I hope each and everyone of you have a blessed weekend!

Since I last updated many things have changed. We are currently living in Georgia but hoping to move back to Florida in the up coming months. My husband is currently working for a fire department here in GA and I just became a stay at home wife this past week. I was not planning to quit working but because of some unforeseen issues at work I was forced to no longer work. I was upset when it all happened and how it happened but now I am beginning to look at it as a blessing. I get to stay home and keep the house clean, cook dinner for my husband every night that he is not working and focus on getting ready for our beautiful little girl to enter this world.

We still have Seamus and have had him for a little over a year. We could never imagine our life without him because he is such an amazing dog. Unfortunately while I was going through the hard time with work my husband was away with the Army for a few days and Seamus was really there for me. He knew something was wrong while I was crying and just constantly wanted to cuddle with up with me. McHunny and I are looking forward to him meeting the baby and know he is going to love her. We are always going to make sure Seamus knows he is part of the family and not an outsider once the baby gets here.

My sister and mom held a baby shower for me on March 10th and it was amazing! Most of my close friends and family were there and it was so perfect. I have been to many baby showers before but I have to say mine had great food, great decor and great people that just showered Kinslee and I with gifts. Oh and it was not boring with stupid games like others I have been to ;) I could not believe how generous everybody was and just really appreciate them.

I feel like more has happened but can not think of anything else so for now that is all and I will soon post pics of Kinslee's room and my belly.

It's been awhile...

It's been awhile since my last post. I had gotten so busy with working full time, being a full time student and a wife that I totally forgot about my blog. Many things have changed and I am no longer working therefore should have more time to update my blog more often.

I am 35 weeks pregnant and can not wait to meet our little girl in a short 5 weeks. I am so in love with being pregnant, it is the most amazing thing I have experienced. Within the next few days I will get you guys caught up on our lives but for now I am going to go lay on the couch and watch some trashy TV ;)
