Random Fact Friday

It's been a crazy week. And I'm so glad to say that it's Friday!

When we first found out we were pregnant, I thought to myself..."My blog will not become all about my pregnancy. It will not consist of ONLY weekly updates on my belly or random ultrasound photos or pictures of the nursery progression. Nope, I will continue to post about other things that are important in my life." I sit. Guilty of posting really only about the pregnancy and everything that it entails. But you know, pregnancy & the preparation for our baby girl are really the only things that consume my mind right now. So that's what you get...this blog is meant to be a diary of my life & our life together...and our LIFE right now is this baby girl.
Of course that doesn't mean that random non-baby things don't sneak in every once in awhile...

~Pumpkin Bars w/ Cream Cheese Frosting-I'm most likely gonna make these for a fun gathering on Saturday night. I have to make them so I can take them somewhere...the entire pan does NOT need to be sitting in my kitchen!

~Thoughts of Christmas shopping & decorating & parties & baking are starting to creep into my mind and I'm trying so hard to push it out. I've got too many other things to do before Christmas season arrives to be thinking about all of that stuff...Christmas is just oh so much fun! And promises to be even more exciting this year!

~I did my first load of baby laundry yesterday...definitely a surreal experience. Something tells me this is what the end of our couch will look like quite frequently!

blankets & bibs & sleepers...oh my!

~My car was making an incredibly awful noise yesterday & last night, but when I drop it off at the mechanic this morning he of course can't get it to make the same noise. It's driving fine & all my gauges are normal...maybe it was just a quirk! However, Hubby heard the noise and I'm so glad...otherwise I might start thinking that I really had lost my mind!

~I'm considering ordering an Erin Condren planner to have for all the craziness of the holidays & to keep track of various things when Elyse is born. I was definitely a "planner" girl in high school and it kept me sane...however, I'm just trying to justify the $50 for a planner! They are so stinkin' cute!

~There are some pretty exciting things going on in our life right now...besides the fact that Elyse is going to arrive in less than 90 days! I can't talk a lot about it...but life is certainly going to change; and it is a very, very good thing!

~And in reference to the above...God's timing is ALWAYS perfect. ALWAYS.

~Also in reference to the above...God ALWAYS answers prayer. ALWAYS...even if it's not the way you thought or hoped he would.

Hope everyone has a super fabulous weekend...I certainly plan on it!

I am sure the pumpkin cake is going to be yummy.

Today I finally bought some baby clothes and not just sleepers. I am slowly getting there and I will wash them next month - you are very organised :).
