What we're up to

Spring football is over! PTL! I'm so excited to have my husband back! He has been working so hard we've probably had dinner together 5 times in the past month.

We are going to Branson for Easter and I'm so excited to see family and friends. I'm hosting a wedding shower for my BFF from high school on Saturday -- here's a sneak peek at some of the decorations I made! The colors are gray and yellow. :) The brides parents own a precious cafe in Branson and are going to do the food (chilled pineapple soup is on the menu!). I'm not sure if I was kind enough to my bridesmaids. If you're reading this, girls, please accept my dearest apologies for not loving on you enough during the whole process! It's so fun for me to help celebrate their weddings now.

This week is going to be a short one, which is good b/c I need a bit of a break from our normal routine. I'll be in office on Monday, clinic on Tuesday, Springfield for meetings on Wed and Thur then Branson over the weekend. Can't wait! p.s. Spellcheck is flagging 'Branson' -- who doesn't know what Branson is?! ;)


baby fever

Baby fever is serious. I mean...it's serious when a real baby has a real fever, but it's also serious when a non-baby owner has unreasonable desired to add one to the mix.

That is me. At least...this week that is me. It tends to change depending on my schedule, how many babies I'm around, etc. For the first time ever someone told me that they didn't think Sean and I wanted kids. I know it's silly, but that kind of hurt my feelings! Of course we want kids! The fact that Sean and I both desired to finish grad school and we staggered it has slowed down the process.

Our conscience thoughts affect our subconscious thoughts. Do you ever have dreams that feel SO real?? Well, last night I dreamt I was pregnant. Here's how it went:

I wanted an alcoholic drink while on vacation in Mexico -- Sean informed me that next Tuesday I will be 12.5 weeks pregnant {odd that he knew i was with child before myself} and that the alcoholic drink wouldn't be a wise idea. We told my parents, who were apprehensive about how we would afford the baby {probably would be their real life reaction too}.

When we got home from vacation I started making plans immediately. I met with my office, all of whom are guys, to describe my expectations during pregnancy and my plan to work from home after the baby was born. {that's how it works in the real world, right?...just get to choose how and where you work?} They all agreed.

It all felt so real to me that when I woke up I grabbed my phone and started to go to craigslist.com to look for maternity clothes! I felt both silly and my belly to make sure I wasn't pregnant in real life.

Could we have a baby now? Sure. Would it be easier on all parties if I waited about another 1.5 years? Absolutely. I desire to honor God's timing and trust in Him. This will all happen when He is darn well ready for it to!

Recent projects

I spent some quality time with my sewing machine last weekend. Here are the fruits of my labor:

Two aprons for an upcoming shower. One will go to the bride and the other will be a game prize. I used my serger a lot more on these aprons and it went so much faster!

A couple of t-shirt dresses. Sorry for the terrible iPhone pics!

I saw these at Wal-Mart. Peeps on top of cupcakes. Genious!
I hope you're all having a great week! Look out for a crazy dream post in a bit.


My crafting to-do list

Jute covered letters - so presh!

Another ruffle apron for a wedding shower game prize.

A Razorback romper. I purchased a plain black one online and will probably freezer paper stencil the letters on. This romper with a fun necklace and some comfy red wedges I have would be a fun game day outfit!
How cute is this little girls romper?! Did you know american eagle has a kids line? Looks simple enough to recreate and would be a cute baby gift!

I have a couple of orders for game day dresses that I need to finish in the next week.

I would love to try one of these for my BFF's wedding shower in a couple of weeks. I think it helps make for a really sweet picture of the dress on the wedding day. If you don't want to DIY, you can get them for a reasonable price on Etsy, like this one:

Isn't this necklace adorable? It's from anthro, but a tutorial to make your own can be found here.

Whew! It makes me tired to look at all of these, but I'm excited to cross some of them off my to-do list soon!


This weekend

We had beautiful weather in Fayetteville this weekend! Sunny and 80 degrees. We had multiple visits to the dog park and watched Sean's cousin run in a track meet here at U of A. Sean is working with Razorback football right now and they are in spring training, so I haven't seen much of Sean recently. Just a couple more weeks of spring ball, though. Wyatt and I have had a lot of QT together which is usually consumed with playing fetch or snuggling on the couch.

I also got my hair done and added some dark to it -- strongly dislike it and will hopefully be going back today for a quick fix. :)

I hope you all have a great week!
