DIY Barrette holder

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.

Pumpkin Hunting

This morning we took a little trip to Flower Mound, TX to get a pumpkin.  It was a beautiful drive and the dogs got to meet lots of little kids.

Then our afternoon was spent relaxing and watching the Mizzou game.  Ryan and the dogs were beat...

Happy Saturday!

7 Months

We are moving right along with this pregnancy.  This past week marked the start of our 7th month.

Still no crazy cravings and weight gain is up to 20lbs. 

Here is a little recap of our photos...

Here is a recent belly picture, taken last night.  I will be 7 months this week.  Almost big enough to set my dinner plate on. 

Kinley's Shower

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.
