Nursery Sneak Peek

The nursery is not yet done, but it's getting closer, and I'm loving it! I find myself just sitting in there sometimes. As I've mentioned before, we'll be completing little Grace's room on a budget, so when it's ready for a reveal, I'll share all of the details. I'm hoping that will be in 2 weeks or so! Eek, so close!

Ready for a sneak peek?

My Chat with Dashing: Baby Monitors

I have to admit, Dashing is funny. Here is our brief chat today....

Background: Dashing was given the task of finding the right baby monitor for us. He is the techie between us, so this was a fitting task. He has yet to pick one.

Double Grammy

Last night Dashing was working a shift at the hospital, so I situated myself in front of the TV with a blanket and chilled glass of wine sparkling apple cider, and the remote control and watched the Grammy's.

I love that Mumford and Sons won best album for Babel. I love their music. Below My Feet is a favorite of mine.
But who are the Black Keys and Alabama Shakes? News to me.....

I also wasn't blown away by the dresses. I did love Carrie Underwood (she always looks great), and oddly enough, Kelly Osborne's dress was a great pick too.

And what was with LL Cool J's final performance. I was not a fan. But it was overall a fun show and the performances were exciting.

The double Grammy comes in as today is my Grandma's 93rd Birthday! Wishing her a wonderful day from Arizona to Indiana.

Showering us with LOVE

Last weekend, our friends Lizy and Zach hosted a shower for me, Dashing, and baby Grace. We had a wonderful time celebrating our little love's upcoming arrival with some family and friends. I can't believe we're 30 weeks along - look at that bump of mine! Whoa.

Dashing and me. Ignore the red cup : )
We got a car seat for Grace! Thanks to my DG rocks!
Dashing being funny with our friend Jordan. She had to message her mom after this was posted
on FB to reassure her family she indeed was not pregnant. Hehe
The in-laws
My dad and his wife.
Thank you to all of those who were able to celebrate with us or in writing with lovely words of encouragement, support, and love.

Grace is one lucky girl!

Another Weekend to Celebrate

Happy February! I'm so excited for this weekend! My dad and his wife are flying out to attend a co-ed shower our friends Lizy and Zach are throwing for baby Grace this weekend. We'll also be stopping in the rowdy Phoenix Open golf tournament at TPC Scottsdale and enjoying Super Bowl Sunday! 

What's the Phoenix Open  you ask? You may have heard of it in the news recently because famous golfer Vijay Singh withdrew from the tournament because he was using a banned substance....antler spray (What???). Also, Tiger Woods has not participated in this event for a handful of years because he didn't like the party atmosphere of the event. He once had a cup thrown at him and he never came back. Oops. Essentially you see everyone you know from college, randomly run into people that live out-of-state, enjoy the nice weather, wander the beer tents, and watch golf the crowd. Obviously I'll be hitting up the water fountains this year.

I'll let Wikipedia do further explaining.......

"The 4-day attendance of the tournament is usually around 500,000. The most popular hole for spectators to watch is the 16th hole due to the "Amphitheatre" atmosphere of the hole, created by the stands erected every year before the tournament. The hole could be described as "one big party", with many students from the nearby Arizona State University. Poor shots at the 16th hole receive boos, because the hole is very easy by the PGA's standards. Good shots, however, are cheered for loudly. Famous moments at the 16th include Tiger Woods' hole-in-one in 1997, which caused the gallery to erupt, throwing cups and other objects in celebration, and Justin Leonard giving the finger to the gallery after a poor shot. The most popular golfer at the open is unquestionably Phil Mickelson, an Arizona State alum. In addition to the golf, there is a concert/party held in the Scottsdale area called the Birds Nest, at which music artists like Huey Lewis and the News play."

BUMPDATE: Almost 30 weeks!

Have a wonderful weekend!
