First Baby Shower Gift!

So my baby shower is in CA on Saturday!  I'm totally looking forward to going home for the holiday weekend and having a shower with my family and friends (including best friend Laura who is driving out from UT for it, YAY!)  A good family friend, Ruth, who will be unable to attend the shower had my shower gift sent to the house and it arrived today!

How fun and cute are these little soft blocks with their coordinating bag?!?!  Wanna know the best part?  They were custom designed by an Etsy seller to match my nursery bedding!

Seriously, LOVE this gift!  The sellers shop is closed for a couple of weeks, but I liked her work enough that when she re-opens I'm going to have her custom make a mobile to go over the crib!  I'll link to her shop when I get that all ordered and done, and she's re-opened, etc...

I really need to blog... I mean it this time


I don't know what I was thinking trying to keep up with blogging, memes, taking and uploading a bazillion pictures, all while getting down to the wire planning a wedding, and then planning a cross country move!!!

So... Here are a couple of mosaics for you so you can see how life has been :-)

First: The Wedding!  It was beautiful!  I loved the way everything turned out and all of my hard work on handmade invitations and coordinating stationary really paid off in the end!  We also had a blast on our honeymoon in Disney Land!

Second:  We moved!  Goodbye, California!  Hello, Virginia! We spent an entire month doing a cross country road trip.  Stops included Vegas, Yellowstone, Mt. Rushmore, and Niagara Falls.  We also got to spend a lot of time with family!

And last but most certainly not least...

Yup!  You saw that right!  We're expecting!!!  Another reason why the blog has taken a back seat, but also another reason I REALLY need to blog more!  I'm a little more than halfway through my pregnancy now (23 weeks) and it's finally starting to feel real.  It's a boy, and yes, he is our little souvenir from our honeymoon :-)

So there's the general update, more to follow, and hopefully I'll get into a couple of memes again as well!
