1st Friendsgiving

Happy Monday!

Yesterday I hit 37 weeks in my pregnancy. Where oh where has the time gone...
I see the doctor this morning so we will see if there is any update as of yet. Yesterday I felt like I had pretty consistent contractions/braxton hicks all day. I will probably do one more bump date post next week and then hopefully the little man will make his debut.

Saturday I took the majority of the day off of work to hang with the husband and attend our 1st Friendsgiving with our close group of friends. The food was so delicious and the company was just as great. 

Can't wait to do it all over again on Thursday eve!

Eat up!

Just wanted to share this delicious, easy dinner we had last night thanks to Pinterest! 

Throw everything in a pot and that's it!

You will need...

1 lb spaghetti
Sliced mushrooms
2 zucchinis diced up
2/3 cup peas
2 cloves garlic
1/3 cup grated Parmesan
1/4 cup heavy cream

In a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium high heat, combine spaghetti, mushrooms, zucchini, peas, garlic, and 4 1/2 cups water; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until pasta is cooked through and liquid has reduced, about 8-10 minutes. Stir in Parmesan and heavy cream.
Serve immediately.

Catch Up

Halloween was spent with my sister and her kids which was extra special as they don't live nearby and the first time we got to trick or treat with them in a few years. 

Thursday was spent eating French toast, then to the Four Seasons Spa for a maternity massage (heaven) and a King's game with my husband. Pretty perfect day. 

Dropped off the thank you's to the hostesses from my shower. Can't go wrong with Starbucks gift cards!

Jack's room currently... Hot mess. 

Ended the weekend walking with my girlfriends for a Mary Kay 5k, (Let's be real, I only walked half because it was bloody hot and I was over it)

Happy Hump Day!

35 Weeks

{Picture is obviously from a week ago}

How far along: 35 Weeks

Total Weight Gain: Around 23 pounds & it's killing my back. 

Clothes: Running out of options. 

Gender: Boy!

Movement: Still feel him plenty thru out the day and night. Love when I can feel his little foot.

Sleep: I am up 2-4 times a night and usually stuck awake around 6am

Cravings: Nothing extreme but just some things sound better than others. Currently wanting Thai food.

Symptoms: Braxton Hicks, swollen feet, and back pain. I had a maternity massage last week that was amazing but the back pain is back in full force.

Looking forward to: Feeling ready. I am not at that stage yet. Not sure I will ever be. I think marking all of the items off my to-do list will help. Also wouldn't be sad if he came a few weeks early even though that makes no sense. 

Best moments: Getting his room ready, finally going to start his laundry today, love pushing on my belly and he pushes back.

We are SUPER close to finishing his room.  We are hitting a few stores tonight to get things that weren't bought from the registry, and waiting to hear that the glider is in.

Jack's Shower

Jack and I had the most amazing baby shower this past Sunday. 
Three girlfriends put on the best afternoon for us and everything was perfect. 
We chatted, lunched, and gifts. The time and effort put into the details were seen by everyone. 

I will let the pictures do the talking.

We received lots of gifts and I can't wait to start washing his outfits and get them put away. 6 weeks give or take to go!
