30 weeks pregnant photo and update

This week!
How Far Along: 30 weeks! (70days to go!)
Size of baby: 3.3 lbs!
Movement: much more movement this week :)
Cravings: Chocolate chocolate Chocolate!
Symptoms: Yesterday I had the worst case of heartburn or indigestion whatever
it was, had me screaming in pain! It was between my ribs and was that fire pain
UGH! It was gone within and hour thank goodness!

This weekend we will finally get the nursery! I can't wait! The decals came in
yesterday too and I can't wait to start decorating!

I already made room for where I will place the packnplay and swing.
I'm one of those people that hate filling a room full of furniture.
So I get pretty antsy visualizing where all the extra baby things will go.
I like my space and I will throw away furniture if it's in my way haha!

So I decided to put the packnplay in my long dining room ahahh. Finally see a reason
for it's length haha! There's a perfect corner for it that is kinda out of sight. I can move it to the living room when needed too but for the most part, it's home will be there!

 I moved this sad looking plant to the opposite of the room, still debating on what I'll do with it. I always forget to water it.

The Swing will be in our living room.

And all extras will take over the husbands basement poker room :) sorry hunny, you and baby K can share that room with your toys haha!

The nesting stage is making me a little crazy but once I visualize where things will
go, I feel calm and ready lol. I'm also ready for it all to change anyway once
Baby K is here too ;)

Hope you have a great weekend! Today is my sister's Champagne Birthday! Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!

Cute Baby Boy Clothes

After I did all the laundry for baby K I counted all the outfits too. I noticed that I have lots of 3 month clothes and only 1 NB outfit and no 3-6 month clothes. So I decided now that every time I go out I must buy a couple outfits for him :)

I'm not sure how many NB clothes he will need? (moms?) And does 0-3 mean it will fit him as NB too?

I know it will depend on his size. But I do want to be prepared! :)

Here are some cute outfits I picked up at Winners and Bonnie Togs :)
Bonnie Togs NB

Winners 3-6months

Winners 0-3 months

Winners 0-3 months

A gift from my cousins :)

Swaddler blankies and a cute outfit! :)

Baby clothes are soo super cute!

Babbling Wednesday - What's your makeup routine

Today I decided to blog a little about everything :)

Yesterday I tackled the baby clothes pile :) Getting all the baby clothes and blankies all washed up! I even counted all outfits so I know what else I need. The little outfits are too cute!

Look what I got! Check out  This is so cute and what a awesome idea! You can snap on and clip on whatever you like, like blankies to the car seat or toys to your little one.  Can't wait to use it! Thanks Clippo!

 New purchase... DREAM! Never forget your DREAMS!
Bought this at Winners. Perfect for me!
 I won an award this week too! A Stylish Blogger Award! Thanks

A couple blogger friends have been writing about makeup , so I decided to post my makeup routine too!

Over at
She suggested Maybelline Falsies Mascara in Black ... So far I love it! Thanks girl! Check out her other suggestions.

Patty over at
Blogged about if you have a makeup routine or not. Check it out.

So as you see my picture above.... that's my makeup routine haha! Give or take depending on the day.

So my routine:
Nivea Q10 day cream
Maybelline  (Instant Age Rewind foundation) (I only dab a bit on cheeks)
Loreal visible lift concealer (I appeal to under eyes and eyelids)
Physicians formula loose powder (full face)
Physicians formula Bronzer (cheeks and nose :)
Eyelash curler (a must!)
Eyeshadow  (day to day I wear a champagne color)
Black eyeliner (thin or thick, again depending on the day)

For lipstick I use Lise Waiter matte neutral color or Lise Waiter gloss. But most the time I don't have anything on my lips. 

Seems like a lot, but it really isn't.  It only takes me about 5 mins to apply it all. I've been doing this same routine for years! Can't even remember when I started haha!

In the evenings I remove makeup with baby oil and apply Nivea Q10 night cream.

What's your routine??

I Finally decided on nursery decor!

So I finally decided on nursery decor! Maybe it's the hormones but I just could not decide on the decor I wanted. I had lots of ideas and thought  I knew what I wanted but it all made me crazy and I even cried when I would visualize it. So today, with the help of my sister and husband I finally decided on what I will be going with! I pictured the decor in both spare rooms (just in case I change my mind on which room his nursery will be in) And I can visualize the decor in both rooms perfectly!

What do you think!

This is the bedding I already have from Toys R us

Wall decals, I will choose brown/beige/blue colors.

Nursery Set, not sure if this one exactly but I do want the hutch and glider :)

 And of course his little savings plan ahahh.

Fun Summer Weekend

Friday night we went down to the city to my favorite Thai restaurant. We had a delicious meal, our usual, chicken and shrimp pad thai and red coconut curry shrimp and pineapple. Yum!

Dress from Target last year (not maternity) still fits but needed to wear a shirt underneath for my oversized... you know :)  
After dinner we went to a park to walk around. It was very peaceful and nice, just walking and talking.  My favorite thing to do with the husband.

After walking through the zoo area of the park we noticed that the play in the park was still going on, so we went over and took a seat to watch.

 No pictures allowed during the play, but husband snapped one!
 It was a beautiful evening and mosquito's loved me that night haha!

We got home pretty late and had a busy Saturday so yesterday I was pretty tired but didn't stop me from enjoying my Saturday.

We had lunch on a patio and shopped a bit before heading to a family bbq.
Thai shrimp wrap with coleslaw, spicy and delicious!

Look at this cute track suit I bought for baby K at Winners. Love it!  Husband said it was a must buy, don't need to twist my arm when it comes to shopping for baby hahhah!

At the family bbq my nieces loved being in the pool. Look at baby M, adorable! The best part is when her mom was saying "ready" to dunk her head in the water and her eyes and faced scrunched up getting ready to go under. sooo cute!!!

I can't believe she is turning 1 yo in 9 days!

Today is a very humid day, so we decided to stay in most the day.

Hope you are all having a nice relaxing Sunday :)
Zoe loves sleeping on my belly

26 week pregnancy Glucose test

Ha! I don't look so thrilled huh. Yesterday was my glucose test. I had to fast for this test so imagine a hungry tired preggo having to spend her morning at a lab was not fun at all. I wasn't sure what to expect with this test so my husband came with me just in case!

The lab techs were to first take my blood before I drank the glucose (orange pop thing) But they didn't, they just gave me the pop to drink within 5 minutes, only after I drank it did they realize they should have taken my blood before as well. So now I will need to go back for that one. After I drank the orange pop, I had to sit there for 1 hour, then they took blood.  They are checking to see how my body processes sugar. Glad part of the test is over with. Wasn't too bad.

Last week I ordered some things on Etsy and look what came in the mail yesterday! Hopefully baby K will like wearing hats because he has so many already ha!
Yesterday evening Zoe was at the backyard door pacing around and meowing. I went to look and saw a family of raccoons in our backyard! yikes! They were going in and out of the garden, hope they don't live there... but they are kinda cute tho haha!
