Bits of Randoms....

**You may remember me drooling over this gem of a bag from Monogram Divas a few weeks ago. Because I really wanted to avoid having a diaper bag...I wanted to still feel like me. Well, my lovely sister surprised me with it for my birthday. Complete with bright pink monagramming. I am so in love with it. LOVE it!**



**I {heart} Mary Kay Andrews. Love her to be exact. And I have been waiting for sooo long for her newest book to come out. I ordered it online the other day and it just arrived yesterday. I can't wait to be utterly absorbed in her southern charm and fun read. Perfect book for summer!


**Leo is painting this weekend! I am sooo excited! I have been wanting to paint for two years now. Isabella and I may have helped jump start this painting project (or projects) for him. I was taking off some wooden decals that were all around her walls and *oops* wouldn't you know some paint came off! (We have that lovely paint that the builders used...the kind that comes off if you dare wipe it down...). So he agreed to do her room and the hallway by her room. I really wanted the foyer done....so my darling little girl decided to take a red crayon and draw big. red. "x"'s all over the wall. Along with a lot of red lines. As upset as I was, I secretly cheered that now we would have to paint there as well....I'll have to post pics of his finished projects!


**We went for my ultrasound on Wednesday. Only to get all the way up to Radiology and have the fire alarms go off. We were then escorted outside to evacuate. In the 100+ heat. Lovely. Mind you I'll be 35 weeks tomorrow. And on top of that? I had to drink 32 oz of water beforehand. So there I was swelling up like a balloon, almost wetting myself and then? I really thought I was going to pass out. We were out there for over 45 minutes. Lovely.


**I had to wait almost another hour before I got seen...I have no idea how I kept my bladder from exploding...but I managed! I think I probably sweat out a majority of the water. Anyway, the ultrasound went fine. My doctor had told me that they would call me if anything was abnormal about her size or weight. I have yet to hear anything so I am assuming Miss Madelyn is doing just wonderfully.


**Speaking of Madelyn it was confirmed she is now head down...which I could already tell by how I now waddle everywhere...and just feeling like she is going to fall out at any moment...sorry if that was a little too graphic, but seriously? That's how I feel! I'm crossing my fingers she'll arrive a little early or right on time. Bella Mella was my little princess who loved me so much she was eight days late and was only born when she was due to me being induced. I secretly wanted her to be an October baby, though. I {heart} fall!


**Last, but for certain, not least....I won Summer's adorable Red, White and Black giveaway! I cannot wait to dress little Madelyn up in all of the cuteness that was given away. And if you haven't been to Summer's blog? You. must. go! Now! She is so talented and crafty. She is a true inspiration to me! Oh--she also posts the most amazing recipes and pictures. Yum!

Oh my goodness....I remember having to drink all that water and then have someone push down on your stomach. Ah, it's killer!

Fire alarm? Geesh

I had to go through the HOT HOT summer months with my oldest kiddo. It was pure torture.

We are painting today, too...but I should say, we are paying to have our living room painted (too much work for us, and they are like almost done in 3 hours)...so worth it!

Fire alarm, yuck.


Cute diaper bag.

Congrats on the win...and so glad she's head down.

Your diaper bag is ADORABLE! Not at all diaper-y.

I have no idea how you kept for exploding either. I sneeze and I wet myself (TMI? Oh well. There's no dignity this far along in pregnancy... haha)

Love you!

hehe love the bits of random! ooo the feeling they were going to fall out.. don't miss that one to much :-P I feel for you in the 100+ heat at 35 weeks preggo... That would have been awful! Can't wait to see the paint.

Kristi said...

Ok, I don't know what "head down" means? Is that good??

And I'm glad you like the bag! I just saw it and totally thought of you! PROBABLY because I saw it in your post on your blog. LOL

I love surprises like that! The diaper bag is so cute! I put that book on my list to check out - let us know how it is.

I don't know how you survived waiting for your sonogram with a full bladder! I remember waiting to have one done and thinking that I was not going to be able to hold it since they were running late. I was dancing all around!

All that water sitting for 45 minutes??? Oh! Thank goodness everything is OK.

I'm so sorry you are feeling the 'waddle'. She will soon be here and you've got that great bag to boot :)
