Ryan thinks I have been "nesting" this past weekend. I just wanted to get things done around the house. I organized my closet, the kitchen cabinets (putting glasses away to make room for bottles) and worked on getting the nursery together.
I found a little tutorial online on how to make a barrette holder. I have 4 frames that were used at my shower to display ultrasound photos and photos of Ryan and I. I used these frames to make the barrette holders.
A few pictures from the process...
Here is what I started with..
I used acrylic paint and painted the frames white.
While they were drying Ryan cut out the foam for me.
The fabric was already cut and in the frames. I put the piece of foam behind the fabric and then cut out ribbon. The ribbon was then glued stapled to the back (The glue just wasn't working out and I was being inpatient).
Here is the final project... with one little barrette waiting to go in Kinley's hair.
My family gave us a surprise baby shower while I was visiting Pennsylvania. My best friend, Kaleena put together the decorations. It was a beautiful shower and I enjoyed seeing everyone from home. We got lots of wonderful things and Kinley will be one stylin' girl. Here are some pictures from the event.

...Already missing Pennsylvania, but lovin' this Texas weather.
Shopping for bathing suits can sometimes be a challenge for Ryan. We were at the Galleria Mall today and he tried on about 15 pairs. We finally found one that fit and he liked. Here is a picture of one that definitely did not work out.
We have been busy doing baby things, but there is a long way to go. What color crib? Do we want a themed nursery? There are so many options out there. Recently Ryan and I went to Babies-R-Us to start a registry. Needless to say Ryan had control of the scan gun, so there might be some goofy things on that registry. It was a fun time but a bit overwhelming.
