oh mother nature...

Not too long ago I discovered that I was O- blood type. Of course only me &  7% of the population.  I goggled the crap out of this and learned that if my blood were to mix with hers my body would develop antibodies to pretty much 'fight her off' how bizarre is that?!

 So I had to get this painful shot in my tush to prevent that from happening. Danny came with me cuz I was scared of this needle I was warned about, I didn't wanna see it...and Danny said I should be glad I didn't..eek!!

Artsy duo ;)

For the past two weekends Hubby & I got our crafty on and made our little girl the perfect nursery.

We saw this vinyl sticker of a tree with shelves and fell in love with the idea, so we decided to  turn it into a project and make one ourselves...from top to bottom... I'm so glad we did because not only was it a ton of fun, but it makes it that much more special being made with love specially for our Princess.

Since Hubby has some Architecture under his belt and Graphic Design, we put his skills & years of schooling to work :)

We went to an Art supply store & bough the necessary materials, measured, sketched, drew, cut and piece by piece put it together.

I'm happy to say it came out even better than we expected

drawing everything up

cutting- he had some nasty blisters from that x-acto knife

1st part that went up

making sure everything lines up correctly

mounting the shelves

I was in charge of making the little animals for the tree

Snail in the making


My girly squirrel that Danny says looks like a chipmunk

The leaves were a pain in the neck

Our little blessing in 3D

Today hubs & I had a date that we will never forget.
 For a half hour, we sat in amazement watching our little girl making all kinds of faces at us.

Sienna - you are one adorable little girl, We cannot wait to meet you on your birthday...maybe on your mom & dads birthday - it would certainly be the best birthday present under the sun.

my little smiley girl

this cracks me up


precious girl

We are so in love

It begining to look a lot like Christmas

This past weekend, hubs and I decorated the house for Christmas :)
We were so excited to get our first tree, the smell of it invading the whole house makes me giddy, takes me back to being a kid.

 I had a mini heart attack when he was putting up lights outside, and I'm sure I'll have another one in a month when he has to get up there again to take them down.

The house looks so cozy and festive :)
 I love love love it.

Where does time go?

The first love of my life wasn't Danny believe it or not, it was this little cutie pie
my first niece, Olivia.

2 Days old... December 3rd 2003

Thankfulness on Thanksgiving

This year, more than ever before, I think I have an
 abounding list of "things" to be thankful for..

An incredible husband - today marks our 1 month of wedded bliss.
Not a day goes by that I don't thank my lucky stars for bringing him into my life.

Our home, that we love so much & are fortunate to have.

Our niece Sofia, who thankfully only lives only 2 minutes away 
She has the power to turn around any crummy day, make us laugh with the clever things she says & melt our hearts with her hugs, kisses and "I love yous"

Our true & genuine friends,
 who have stuck by us through thick & thin - we love you guys!

My easy pregnancy, thus far its been a breeze...her kicks are what I live for these days I'm thankful to only have gained a belly not a bum...but let me not jinx myself. 

Most of all, I'm thankful to become a mother...less than 4 months till we meet our sweet baby girl, words cannot express the love, joy and excitement I have in my heart to welcome this child into the world...She will be showered with so much love that she will never doubt how happy we are she came into our lives.

The long awaited photographers picture & video from our Wedding Photographer finally arrived, actually a day before I left for NY So its not till now that I get to actually sit down and look them over...I have been reliving that day through these videos & photos.

Our wedding in one word? MAGICAL. It truly was the best day of my life

My dad walked me down to my teary eyed groom & best friend.. in the only setting I ever saw myself get married in...just us, our closest of friends & immediate family.

I wouldn't have had it any other way.

The photographer did a phenomenal job,
 Since I cant share the whole video..I made little clips with my phone, of course not the best quality that way but its the best I can do.

A song for Sienna

This song randomly came on my Pandora station a few weeks ago. I gasp when I saw the title,  the melody is just so brought me to tears
 (Thanks hormones)

I play it for her all the time, 
I hope she loves it as much as I do.

of course I had to take a pic of my computer screen & show Danny
because I'm a nerd like that :)

Cloth diapering

Danny & I decided to take on cloth diapering,
Some of you may judge and think its gross and that's fine...everyone is entitled to their opinions.

I'm aware that it will be unpleasant at times with #2
but if its better for my baby, saves my husband thousands of dollars and is better for the environment then that is all the convincing I'll ever need.

Not to mention they're adorable :)

The nursery..

While I was in NY for my Baby Shower, Danny build shelves in the baby's closet and put together the crib so now that that's set up, we are officially getting started on making our Princess the perfect nursery...

Here are some of my inspirations..

ah let the fun begin! we're so excited to get our crafty on :)

I blame this song for feeling mushy today..

I love this song, 
I listen to it so often that I think Sienna started to recognize it... every time I play it I feel her move! well, it could also be cuz I blast it! 

well baby girl, this song is from Mommy to your Daddy
and since I get to feel you move, I'll play it even more now.

Some of the many reason I am psyched to be having a girl...

Need I say more? :)
