Wreaths: Valentine’s Day & St. Patrick’s Day

Thanks to pinterest, I’ve been interested in making wreaths for holidays lately. I got the inspiration for my Valentine’s Day wreath from the site and copied it exactly. I got the inspiration for my St. Patrick’s Day wreath in a dream. Random, I know.

I love love love the way this turned out. 

This one I am not thrilled with. I feel like it needs something else but I’m not sure what. Maybe a shamrock up towards the top? I don’t know. Thoughts/opinions? 

Here’s a close up of the rainbow I made for it

{Top Ten Tuesday} My Favorite Things About Pregnancy

Top Ten Tuesday at Many Little Blessings;

There is no doubt about it, there are many things about pregnancy that just suck. Between all the yucky symptoms and all the random aches and pains, it can be a very difficult nine months. On the other hand, there is something magical about it as well. Since this is my last pregnancy, I am trying to enjoy every moment of it, as hard as that is at times. Here are some of my favorite things about being pregnant. 

1. If you’re having a bad day, you don’t have to worry about someone asking if your time of the month is coming. 

2. For some reason, I seem to be more outgoing when I’m pregnant. I like this about myself. 

3. Not sure why, but people seem to be nicer to you while you are pregnant. 

4. The anticipation and wonder: What will this baby be like? Look like? WHO will they be? It’s nice to have something happy to think about and look forward to. 

5. Knowing that you’re going to get some time “off” soon is enough to get you through some bad days at work. 

6. Big bellies, while uncomfortable, are totally cute!

7. Nine months of period freedom. Enough said. 

8. You don’t need an excuse to have a mood swing, eat a lot, be fat/gain weight, or anything else. Pregnancy explains it all. 

9. Feeling the baby move around in your belly

10. It is an amazing feeling knowing there is this little life inside of you. This little person who some day you are going to love with all of your being, who you don’t even know yet, who is counting on you for everything right now. It’s an indescribable feeling and honor to be their sole caretaker and life-giver so far.

Proud Mama Monday 2/4/13

After the day I had with the boys today, it’s hard to write a “Proud Mama Monday” post. But it’s days like these where it’s most important to write them. Despite their naughtiness, I am still proud of who they are.

Jordan can now sing his ABCs all the way through. He can also sing along to “Jesus Loves Me”
Jordan has been practicing songs with the church choir and was able to get up front and sing with them for the first time on January 27th. He did great!

Jacob has practiced writing some letters and did a great job writing H, C, J, and G the other night. I’d like to work on writing his name this week.
