What I'm Loving Wednesday!

October 27, 2010

Here is What I'm Loving this Wednesday via Jamie!

1.  It's my birthday!  I am 25 today.  When I turned 24 I was really worried to turn 25.  It just sounds so old.  But, now I'll be having my first baby at 25 so it's turning out to be a great age!

2.  Monday marked 10 years of Jonathan and I being together.  On October 25th 2000 Jonathan asked me to be his girlfriend.  We were freshmen in high school.  When I got home from work on Monday there was a piece of paper on the island that said, "happy decade!  I love you!" and the new Taylor Swift cd!  I love you too Jonathan!


This is our first picture as a "couple".  It was my 15th b-day which was only 2 days after he asked me out.  Please ignore my braces and Jonathan's facial expression :)


3.  My birthday gift!  I got a NEW CAMERA!  I've been wanting one since J and I got married but we agreed to not make the purchase until I was pregnant.  So, now that I'm having a baby I got the camera!  YAY!


4.  I love that my family is SO generous and helpful.  My mom and step-dad are buying us a brand new crib and mattress, Jonathan's mom and dad are buying us the stroller, my sister in law loaned us her beautiful wooden cradle and she is also giving us our car seat and 3 bases (one base for me, one for Jonathan, and one for Jonathan's mom.  My mom already has one for the brand we're using) and she also is giving us our umbrella stroller!  Pretty much all the BIG baby items are being purchased for us as shower gifts.  What a blessing!

5.  We bought an antique buffet this weekend for our TV.  Our old one was too small and too modern.  We like this much better.


6.  I finally finished my fall front porch!  I didn't go "all out" but I think it looks nice.





7.  We got a new desk in the office.  It was 15 dollars.  It was originally from an elementary school in our area.  Jonathan painted it to match the room and now the old desk (which is actually an antique vanity) will be painted white and be used as the baby's changing table.  Now, the only big peices we'll need to purchase for the nursery are an ottoman, a rug, and we may be putting in wood floors.

8.  Usually when you walk around you keep your abs tight...or atleast I do.  Since I've been preggers I've been relaxing my abs more because it's just more comfortable and seems to give me less heartburn.  Because of this I've been wearing flowing dresses to hide the growing stomach.  Well, today I embraced the growing belly.  I think this photo adds a few inches.  In person, I don't think I look this huge.  But hey, what can I do...if I tighten my abs then the bump mostly goes away.
