I'm allowed to change my mind....

I'm pregnant, DUHHH!
So, I have completely changed my mind on the nursery decor colors and everything! I was searching online tonight at premade crib bedding sets and I found the CUTEST set. Even Sean loves it... ALOT. So I am checking it out and looking at all the details and I come across the price... 250$............ FIGURES! I will NOT spend that much money on a dumb crib bedding! After staring at the bedding for a while I remember that i've seen that fabric somewhere online. I googled and what do you know... there is the fabric! I am so beyond excited! It's only $7.48 per yard too! SCORE!
Like my previous post... I want to make all that same cute stuff but I want to use the chevron and flower fabric!
I'm not going to make the bumper because I probably won't use it and i'm too lazy to spend that much time on it!
I can't wait!!!! Now what color should I paint the dresser??? Dark Gray??

Driving in the rain...

I HATE driving in the rain... but I REALLY hate driving in the rain on the freeway.

Am I the only one???

I feel like everyone is speeding, the road and sky are the same color, there is so much mist in the air, and the roads are slippery. I get a lot of anxiety and I know some other states/places have it so much worse but it sucks!


One last thing... I think Aubree is boycotting food. Hmmm...

On with your day lol. I will be posting a 14 week belly picture later! YAY!

Nursery Planning!

I am SUPER excited to plan the nursery. I was the same way when I was pregnant with Aubree too! :) This time I want grey and white CHEVRON wooo. Chevron is my new love! <3 I am gonna post a few pictures of what I want to create. I plan on making most of the nursery decor because it will save me lots of money...I hope.

 So what I have in my head is a handmade chevron bed skirt like this one..Should be SUPER easy to make and be pretty cheap compared to Etsy and what not.
I am going to make a baby blanket/comforter even though I rarely ever used Aubree's on her bed. But whatever it's cute and I want to make it. I want to do the one side grey and white chevron and the other side lavender minky fabric, soooo soft! :)
Next I want to BUY a lavender fitted sheet. The reason for buying is because I dont know if I have the patience to make a fitted sheet. Adding elastic on the corners does not sound appealing to me!
I don't think i'm going to make crib bumpers because I hardly used them for Aubree. If I do need some I have some white breatheable bumpers that I can use.
I recently bought a $30 dresser from a garage sale type website that's local. It's a little beat up but my brother in law is going to help me sand it down and paint it/spray paint it! So after looking on pinterest forever.. I see a lavender/purple dresser. Hmm... how cute would that be! But is it worth it for me to paint it lavender. I am really not sure. So maybe I'll stick with white but here's both pictures!
I love the short and long style dressers so I can put the changing pad on it and have a little spot to put diapers, wipes, cream, etc. These dressers are similar to what I bought. I want a lavender changing pad cover.. once again I think i'll just purchase that because me and adding elastic don't work well together. We have a brown minky one for Aubree so lavender minky for the new baby girl!
Now for the fun stuff! I want to make all of these silly pointless things. I know they are worthless but it gives me something to do while I wait all the way until June to see my new baby love! So here they are. Keep in mind everything will be in grey and white and lavender colors.
(^^^car seat canopy for all those nasty people wanting to be touchy, fabric will be a lot thinner since i'm having a summer baby)
And you can't forget wall art! At this time I don't think we are going to paint the room so it will stay white. So I need lots of pretties to go on the wall. I can make all of them so that will be easy and MUCH cheaper. I think I will wrap a few canvas boards with the grey and white chevron fabric.
I recently bought a boppy pillow for $5-$10 (can't remember exactly). I want to make a cover for it! So here's an idea of what want to make!

Last but not least burp cloths!!! YAY I like making these! I've actually made a few recently for my Etsy customers and one set for a baby shower. I like making ones that are solely cotton fabric and the other side being minky fabric! They are super cute and big!
Ok Ok one last picture! This is something I WANT SOMEONE TO MAKE ME PLEASE! I don't want to spend a million dollars on it but I REALLY want one! For like....$20. C'mon make me one!

How far along? 13 weeks!
Total weight gain: up 2.5-3 pounds. May have lost a half a pound.
Maternity clothes? Nope, but got some cuteee dresses from Forever 21 that I am wearing as long shirts! Love Love Love them! (I'm wearing one in the picture) They were all under $13.
Stretch Marks? No
Sleep: I am sleeping amazing lately, thank goodness! I know this won't last long!
Best moment this week: Last night we went and looked at Christmas lights which was so much fun, Aubree slept through it all though! I had a dream (I think it was a dream) that I felt my sweet baby moving around in my belly last night. I woke up wondering if it was real or a dream.

Miss Anything? I miss my normal back. It hurts so bad lately L
Movement: Not yet, I hope soon though!

Food cravings:
Coke slurpees.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No, not anymore.
Gender: Won’t know for another 2 weeks! Thinking girl still…

Labor Signs: Nope.
Nothing really, still a tiny bit tired feeling.
Belly Button in or out? It’s in between both haha. Happened so quickly this time!
Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or Moody most of the time:
Moody butt!
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender in 2 weeks!
Can't believe i'm already 13 weeks! Going fast...but not fast enough :) I can't wait for this ugly back pain to go away. The doctor said it's probably just from holding/picking up Aubree all the time. He got me an appointment to see a physical therapist, thank gosh. And a doctor's note to sit at work! Enjoy my post!

GOOD Morning!

I FINALLY slept all through the night!!!!! I feel as if my cold is going away quickly, how did I luck out?! I usually get the worst cold that lasts way too long.


A friend Shelley's sweet baby girl Chloe has been offered a heart for a transplant today! What a great early Christmas gift, I wish her the best through this process. Let's all say a prayer! I think this is the link to her facebook group page Keeping Up With Chloe--!/groups/140353972768956/?fref=ts

My baby Aubree has been a little handful this morning, but you know what, instead of going crazy... i'm just going to be thankful for my baby girls health. I am lucky that Aubree is able to be running around crazy and whining, there are many who lose their children, have sick children who would do anything for a healthy baby. Soooo.... here's to a patient day :D that is hopefully filled with lots of smiles and laughter!

Hope everyone enjoys their day! I have LOTS AND LOTS of cleaning to do today.... YAY!!!

<3 Whitney

Food cravings: Not really, I eat the same stuff I ate before. I always crave sweets.

Labor Signs: No...better not be! lol

Hope you like my chalkboard... I really need to get chalkboard PAINT rather than spray paint... i'm sure it will take the chalk a lot better! <3

Doctor said baby was doing great, and my blood pressure wasn't too bad. 137/79. She did say if it starts getting bad we will think about putting me on blood pressure medicine!

I haven't posted on here in SO long! Feels great to be back. So much has happened in the past couple months! For starters....

I am due June 17, 2013. I cannot wait but I can wait all at the same time LOL. I am very excited to bring another sweet baby into this world but I am extremely nervous about taking care of two young babies, especially with my busy busy Aubree.
My next appointment is Monday, can't wait to see my baby love moving all around and to make sure everything is moving in the right direction :) I am doing an early gender ultrasound at 15 weeks with Baby Connection on December 23rd! This time I have planned to do a cake cutting party where I invite friends and family to find out the sex of the baby with Sean and I. I feel like I am going to cry like a little baby. I have been so emotional at the littlest things, such a dork! Either sex, i'll be happy. We have our names picked out but i'll wait a little bit to announce that.
My Etsy shop has been doing pretty well lately. I have fun making new stuff for people :)
I can't wait to find out what i'm having so I can start decorating cause i'm crazy like that!!! I have SO many crafts I want to make for this baby. Burp cloths, nursing cover, carseat canopy, part of the bedding, letters for the wall, onesies, headbands(for a girl) etc. YAAAAY craft crazy!!!
I can't forget to talk about how LUCKY I am to have NO morning sickness, wow, it's amazing!
Until next time <3.....

Friday Craft Day-- Baby Dress

Alright, I'm slightly obsessed with crafting and making new stuff! Yesterday I was looking at hand made dresses, tutorials, and tons of pictures! Finally when Sean got home I went into the craft room and made Aubree a new dress! I love it! I can't wait until I know how to do more things on my sewing machine! I want to ruffle and gather stuff but I don't know what to use on my sewing machine to do that!

Anyways, I'll be looking on pinterest today to find another craft for this lovely friday! :)

Maybe i'll start a friday craft day and post a new craft I made every week! Sounds like a great idea! :)

Here is the final product:

Later tonight I'll post a picture of her wearing it! :)

Good Afternoon!

I have been looking at krazy coupon lady's website! I would love to start couponing, NOT extreme couponing because I dont have the time and/or patience for that. But hey if I can save .50 to 1.00 on things I buy normally...why not?? Sean and I are going grocery shopping tonight and I have a few coupons to bring :) I'm excited!

I found a $5 off coupon for babies r us or toys r us! You don't even have to spend a minimum amount which is awesome!

Alright, well wish me luck on my coupon adventure! I have to save as much $$ as possible with Sean going into the credential program next week and he will only be working 3 days a week! AHHHH, I don't want to be broke! :(


Off to the fountains little water park soon with some friends and baby friends <3

Blessed Mama

I feel so blessed to be Aubree's mom! She is the most precious, fun, sweet baby to be around. She brightens every day of mine! She has been so much happier now that she is walking and can do what she wants....finally :) I am so in love with that little girl it's not even funny. I rocked her to sleep tonight and she laid her head down on me so fast and was listening to me sing. We both fell asleep for a little bit and I woke up with a pile of drool and sweat on my chest ha ha! I just want to snuggle her all day and night! Wish I was a stay at home mommy! One day...

Sean and my anniversary was so much fun! It was nice to be able to enjoy eachother without having to change a diaper and to have a nice quiet dinner. The weather was amazing in Santa Cruz as well... lets go back now!! <3

Goodnight! I'm a tired girl!

Love my sweet Aubree

I love my baby girl so much. I brought her into her room tonight and instead of laying her down (in which she would scream for 20 minutes) I rocked her. I rocked her facing outwards and she was wiggling and squirming then I moved her so our chests were touching and she laid her head down and fell asleep in about 2 minutes. I couldn't help but cry at how sweet that moment was. I feel guilty sometimes because I try to always make sure I do everything right and "by the book." I think I need to knock that off and do what's right for Aubree and not worry about her obtaining bad habits. Is it really normal for a tired one year old to scream for 20-30 minutes before naps and bedtime?? I am really not sure but if she likes being rocked then I should spend that time with her. It's actually extremely relaxing for me as well! Anyways I enjoyed my night with my family and can't wait to do it all over again tomorrow night!

Monday-- My hottie husband and I leave for Santa Cruz! So excited!!! Our anniversary is Tuesday, TWO whole years married ;)! Those two years flewww by so fast! Seems like yesterday that we first met, and now we have been married for 2 years and together for 5 years! Love my husband so much! I am seriously spoiled ;) He treats me so well and is honestly the best dad I have ever seen! He would do anything for that sweet little girl <3

Goodnight <3

Lasagna Roll Ups

We had a fun day! Walked around the inside of maidu in nearly 90 degree weather, went to the park, relaxed and made a yummy dinner! I made Lasagna Roll Ups :)  
Cut up that onion! :)

This is Aubree getting into trouble while mommy cooks. (Please note: chairs all around the animals water bowl because she likes to swim) She was pulling out all of the books, eating pages from them, and ripping out pages...grrr!

Lean ground beef, onion, garlic, olive oil, and crushed tomato sauce.

Ricotta cheese, egg beaten, and parmesan cheese.

Both mixtures on the noodles!

Roll em up!

Next project... living room. She has toys EVERYWHERE!

at the park earlier :)

walking like a big girl!

My love bug

It was so hot and she wanted to stay so bad

Big girls lunch... pb & j with dried apricots

The dinner was AMAZING, sorry the picture are all jacked up.. I cant figure out how to fix them! :)
