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

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!
