I love blogging... mostly to put my all of the ideas I have floating around in one place. But lately i've felt like all I blog about are 'things'. I will admit, I am a bit materialistic; I love shopping, decorating, and all that fun stuff. But I would certainly hate for it to come off (via my blog) that that is all I do. I am a 'normal' human-being. I have fears, dreams, goals just like everyone else. Right now I'm going through one of the most amazing and scariest things all at once... pregnancy.
I have a million things going on in my mind about childbirth, things that could go wrong, how to take care of Owen once he's born... all that good stuff. But, it is easier for me to push all of those worries to the back of my head and just show the 'fun' stuff. I am also a little afraid that if I do tell you about my irrational fears and what not, y'all would be bored to tears.
I really did try not to make this blog about all things baby, but let's face it, it is! I'm not ashamed. What I talk about here is everything I talk to my husband, parents, sister and friends about. There's not a day that goes by that Jer and I don't sit and watch Owen move in my belly, talk about or plan something for Owen. So, I guess i'm sort of apologizing to all of my non-expectant or without child friends. Because I know if I weren't expecting and I read my blog, I would probably be a little tired of all things baby.
Soooo.... after all of that, wanna see some projects i've been working on for Owen?
First, while my whole family and I were in Colorado, my sister kept picking things up for Brock's scrapbook. Not sure why, but it had never occurred to me to start a scrapbook for Owen. I have only made one scrapbook in my life and it was in high school for a grade. Once I got into it, I actually really enjoyed it (that's what she said). But like i've said before, I am an 'all-or-nothing' kind of person and that doesn't really work for scrap booking. Anywho, while I was in Hobby Lobby the other day, I came across the most adorable scrapbook that set my booty in motion to want to make one for Owen.
Plus, all of their scrapbook stuff was 50% off, so I got it for $15.00. Wahoo. I realized I can't really plan ahead for the pages I want to do, so I'm just gonna buy the stuff as things happen. But I did pick up a few sheets to get me started...
The reason I was at Hobby Lobby was to find materials for a little project in Owen's closet. My mom sent me this link from another blog and I fell in love. A project for Owen's clothes?? Count me in!
Seeing his clothes organized definitely made me realize I have ENOUGH and to stop buying the little guy clothes (unless I see something he HAS to have of course)
The other project I've been working on is a cross for his room. I couldn't really find a 'modern' looking cross to go with his room (let me know if you've seen one) so I decided to make one myself. I found the wooden cross (50% off!) at Hobby Lobby and picked out spray paint at Wal-Mart to match his gray curtains. It has been rainy for the past couple of days and I've learned the hard way NOT to spray paint something when there is a lot of moisture in the air, so this project isn't quite finished yet.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday... did anyone watch the premiere of 'Teen Mom' last night?? I love those effed up girls and their adorable babies.
