I LOVE the Fall!

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

It's fall yall! I can't believe that it is already fall and almost October! These past 6 months have gone by so fast and there is only 88 days until Holden's due date. He is going to be here before we know it! I love the cool weather and my wonderful neighbor Katie(who is due with her daughter Paytin the day after Holden is due) and I sat outside last night after dinner just loving the cool weather. It is sooo wonderful to have someone due the same time as you that you can talk to everyday and she just lives next door! I love being able to watch the leaves change, going to fall festivals and just enjoying the wonderful weather. Jack and I are also really excited about having our first baby shower this weekend. Our Mom's are throwing us this shower and we are so excited to finish getting ready for Holden to get here. With that being said, I have had many people ask me what I need. I do have a ton of clothes and diapers but there are many other things that I still need that we registered for at Babies R Us. Here is the link below:

I tried to go through and weed out what we need vs. what we didn't so this list does have things we need on it. We are also registered at Target. The Target registry has more things on it that are not needed but wanted and here is the link for those:



Also on another note, with it being 88 days until Holden's due date, that means there is only 87 days until Christmas which I love the most!

Holden's bedding!

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

We have been having a lot of fun picking out things and getting thing ready for Holden to be here! Last Saturday my Mom came up and she put all of Holden's bedding together for us. We were so excited to get it started and it turned out AWESOME!!

So far we haven't been able to do anything without Simon being right next to us trying to help! Hoochie just waits until we are done and then goes to check everything out.
Here it is after we put the bedding in!
It was A LOT of work but it looks so good and we LOVE it!
We even had enough fabric to make him a blanket that matches.
Here is his oh so cute curtain
Mom made this cute tie back when we ran to Wal-Mart for a curtain rod and chick-fil-a for lunch.

We got this super cute lamp for his room last weekend when we were in Hilton Head. I had found the same one online that I wanted but it was a lot more and I would had to have paid for shipping.

I got this super cute sign from Target on the dollar rack a when we were trying for a baby. We always knew if we had a boy that we wanted him to have a surfer/beach/hawaiian room. And I got it out the other day and it matches the blue in his room perfectly! His room is becoming more than I could have imagined!

A few pics..

Two wonderful years!

Yesterday Jack and I had our two year anniversary! We didn't do much other than drive home but it was a good one. The past two years have been the best years of my life and I feel like I love Jack more and more every day. This past Friday, we headed to Hilton Head Island for our yearly trip with our great friends Erin and Will and Bill and Mandy. And this year we new it was going to be our last beach trip with out Holden being here, Mandy's birthday and our anniversary so we made it an adult only weekend. It was awesome and we had a wonderful time. We didn't take many pictures but we did get some and we got our yearly beach pictures that we always do I just need to load them off of my camera. And as fall gets here and summer is over it just makes it that much closer to us starting a new chapter in our lives with Holden coming in December. Also on another note, two weeks ago we went down and picked up Holden's crib. We went down to Georgia Baby and Kids to pick it up and it didn't fit in our car SO we called Jack's wonderful dad Jack and he came to the rescue and met us with his truck. We got the crib home and Jack put it together the next day and it is even more beautiful than I could have pictured it(we didn't get to see it in black when we ordered it just white) Once again I have pictures of this too that are on my camera. I would have loaded them by now but was sick last week before the beach so I didn't get a chance.
