Mother's Day!

I got to celebrate Mother's Day!!  You have no idea how much it makes my heart happy to be able to say that I'm a mommy to a baby girl.  I know that she is not born yet, but given the journey that I have been on to get here, I will enjoy every second of being pregnant and the fact that I'm going to be a mom.

My wonderful husband made the whole weekend amazing.  On Saturday I got to celebrate Piper with my first baby shower, and then Todd took me to Cheesecake Factory (one of my favorite restaurants).  Man, was it good.  Then Sunday morning, he woke me up with gifts and breakfast in bed.  (Whew, I love that man.) 

I had picked out a couple of neckalces on Etsy that I liked and Todd choose to get me this one. 
I lurve it!!  Seriously have not taken it off since Sunday.

He made me cinnamon buns.  I think I may have licked the icing off the plate.

I had such a wonderful Mother's day!  I am so thankful to God for blessing us with a little girl.  He is so good.  I am also thankful for the wonderful examples that God has put into my life of what a mom looks like.  My own mother left a legacy for me to imitate, and later I was blessed with another mom in Carol. Then two years ago, God blessed me again with the best Mother-in-law ever.  All of these women have had such a godly influence on me and shown me what it is like to be a godly mom, in an ungodly world. 

Here is a quick snapshot of what 32 weeks looks like. 

Todd, thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful Mother's day.  I love you so much and I'm so thankful to be having this little girl with you!

Celebrating Piper: My first baby shower

This past Saturday, my sweet friend and co-worker, Kristi, threw a baby shower for me and our other co-workers to celebrate Piper!  I was so excited.  I've never been thrown a baby shower before. ;)
Everything looked so cute and perfect, which wasn't hard for her to do since she is an event planner. 

All the food was amazing!  She even made little mini banana pudding cups.  Too bad I didn't get a picture, but they were awesome! I think Piper gained weight at this shower.

I loved this pendant!  It was totally my style.  I even asked her if I could have it and put it up in Piper's nursery.

My lovely friends and co-workers.


How adorable is this?  Close line of dresses for Piper!  Love. The girls joked about how they picked out Piper's clothes.  They knew if there was an adult size and I would wear it, then they should get it for her. 

Kristi, thank you so much for such an awesome shower!  I had so much fun, really.  I'm so thankful for your friendship, and the fact that I also get to work with you each day.  I love all you ladies and the relationship I have with all of you!  It was a wonderful party, and I know that if Piper could, she would say Thank you!

Maternity Photos

I just wanted to post some photos that Todd took of me at the beach.  We are wanting to get some professional shots done, but I think some of these turned out well enough that we may just save the money. Plus we are going to the beach again in a few weeks and will probably take a few more photos. What do you think?
