Did I mention Tim's a blogger?

Well he is!! I helped him and Casey get all set up with a blog of their own so they can share hunting, fishing and anything in the outdoors stories. They've done a lot of updates so far, and with deer season fast approaching I'm there will be even more.

Follow his blog here, it is titled "Whispering Arrow Outdoors."

Oh The Places She'll Go {Baby Shower}

How blessed are we? We'd already had two amazing shower and the third was no different! My besties, Kari Hamra, Josey McPhail, Katrina Appelquist, Ashley Gregory (I almost put Vallely :)) and Amanda Brooker, threw me the sweetest baby shower. The theme coordinated with Elliot's room by playing off the map theme, so the shower was "Oh The Places She'll Go!" They incorporate so many cute decorations into the party, some of which are going to end up in her room as well! The girls had craft nights leading up to the shower and put so much time and thought into every detail. I was blown away! Seriously no detail was over looked, you will see by the pictures :)

I can't thank you girls enough for showing me and Ellie the love! And thank you to everyone who attended and showered us :)  I can't think of a single thing we still need, and that is an amazing feeling!

Katie and Kelley writing a funny saying on a diaper to give Tim and I a chuckle for our late night changings

Oh the clothespin game. Once the game began you couldn't say the word CUTE or your pin got taken away. I didn't last long...

Kari, Josey and Trina

They had all of the guests sign Dr. Seuss's "Oh the places she'll go!" book. They left words of wisdom for miss Elliot to enjoy.

They had food from places she might go and put the country's flag on the good.

Trina lost her last clothespin!

Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice {Baby Shower}

What better way to celebrate 31 weeks than with an awesome baby shower thrown by my co-workers. Logan hosted at her house with help from Nicole and Lauren. The "sugar" was an ice cream bar (which I had seconds of) and the "spice" was a nacho bar, which is SO perfect b/c that is my fave food :) Everyone brought a book and I didn't get a single duplicate! Going into this shower I only had about three books, I was so excited to get so many. Can't wait to read to miss Elliot once she arrives–I LOVED being read to when I was little. I can't list all of the awesome things I got because there were so many, but thank you thank you thank you to all of my awesome co-workers. I am so lucky to work at a place where we support and celebrate each other! I definitely felt the love today.

Logan kept track of funny things I was saying and read them aloud at the end of the shower. They were things I said during the shower that I said on the night of conception. The best was "I'm hot. I'm sweaty. I'm red. I'm hot." Her reading them made me hot and red all over again :)

You can really see the bump in this one :)
