Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{1} Today is my EIGHTH anniversary!!!!! Eight years ago today I married my best friend and I still feel like I'm playing "house" some days. Marriage is both a far greater challenge and blessing then what I ever imagined. I'm so thankful for a wonderful husband and father to my children. We're going to celebrate with a date night on Friday using a Groupon 'cause being frugal is our style. :) I'm super excited for our date though; it's much needed after a crazy couple of weeks and Ems will have a great time at her Nana & Papa's.

{2} I've started seeing my belly dance around a little bit when Everett kicks. So far I have to say that he is far more active then his sister was at this point. I think he's going to be a busy boy, just like his daddy. I've always said that if we ever had a son, I hope he is just like Brett and I have a feeling I may have gotten my wish. :) I could just stare at my belly for hours when he's kicking, looking for those slight movements. It's not dramatic enough for someone else to notice but I can see it. I'm 25 weeks today.

{3} I've found a new activity to keep Emersyn occupied while I'm drying my hair. She gets soooo needy when I'm trying to get ready so I decided to let her indulge in one of her favorite things, lotion. I let her put lotion on my legs while I dry my hair. It's a win/win really....I get to dry my hair and have moisturized legs and Ems gets to play with lotion (that I dispense of course).

{4} We found the fabric that we're going to decorate Everett's nursery around!

I'm so excited!! I'm also getting the feeling that I may have blogged about this before. Hmm...oh well! With this fabric, we can keep the nursery green which will save a lot of time and money. I'm going to do navy and yellow accents too....very fun!

{5} We've also decided on this quilt for Emersyn's room!

I've added these items to Everett's registry on PBK and will buy them when I close out the registry and get 10% off, score!

Love the fabric for Everett's nursery! And I don't know if I have said this before, but Everett has been on my list of baby names for years! Love it!

Melissa said...

You did show that fabric before haha but i'm glad you did again b/c it's just PRECIOUS! I Love it!! Love Emersyn's quilt too. :)

And HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!! :) :) Have a wonderful date tonight!

Happy Anniversary! 2 things:
1. Boys are way more active than girls...I swear! Andrew never stops talking and goes a million miles an hour!
2. I still have that bedding if you are interested. It would go well with the owl colors that you picked out.

I totally LOVE that owl fabric! Where did you find it?

That is such a great idea about the lotion. I have Ashlin pick out my clothes sometimes while I'm in the shower to give her something to do or have her bring me stuff (that I don't really need-towel, soap).

I hope you have a great anniversary celebration this weekend!!!!!!!
