Tiffany's with an edge

So we have started to decorate Langston's room, and the more we get done the more i love it.

We had the house deep cleaned and her room painted on Saturday. We did a custom blend color, but after it dried, it looked like a tiffany blue. We hung some of the signs and a mirror, and the mix of the black and blue made me think of breakfast at tiffany's. Then we hung up the zebra curtains and it totally gave the room a funky little twist! WE LOVE IT!

We also picked up her bed finally and once we've got it put together, we will post a few progress pictures! I only hope Lani grows to love her room as much as we do!

Today also happens to be Sean's 28th birthday (he loves the fact that he is 2 years older than me for a few weeks). We went to Dodie's (sean's favorite seafood restaurant) in allen. Just to find out that this is a different dodies. the old one closed moved, and this restaurant "Stole" the name! Despite the disappointment of it being a sports bar vs. a seafood restaurant, we had an awesome time (and the food was really good). Here are a few pics from lunch!

One Hot Mama!!!!

... And i don't mean the sexy way!!!!
I'm starting to think the Nelly song "It's getting hot in here, so take off all your clothes" should be my theme song... lol.. I'm constantly hot and sweating like a mad woman. Trust me there is nothing sexy about that! Good thing it's fall now and not the heat of the summer! Needless to say I'm enjoying the cooler temps, now if that stinking rain would just lay off!

Lately i feel like i'm eating us out of house and home! when i say hungry, i mean starving like crazy. I always hear about the appetite of a pregnant woman and it sure has kicked in!

So time for the Lani update (what you really wanted to hear)!!!

She is a complete night owl (we have her daddy to thank for that) and kicks me from about 1 am to 5 am straight!!! According to my doctor's appointment today she seems very healthy and right on target growth wise. I am starting my 2 week visits now, my next one is actually on my bday. So I'll get to hear her little heart beat for my bday :). I also received my first of 2 Rh antibody shots to keep my body from rejecting her, as well as glucose testing and more genetic screening. My left arm is probably wishing it could detach itself from me right now.

We got the call today that her crib is ready to be picked up! we had a lot of drama with her first crib, but the new one is absolutely adorable. We have been stocking up on clothes and diapers, but still need to get some of the big items.

Her shower will be November 8th, also by my birthday so we will have an awesome weekend of celebrations. We are hoping to get gift cards (not to sound ungrateful) since we really just need the expensive stuff now! I must say the gift cards from my work shower came in very handy, with the unexpected purchase of a new crib!

i cant believe we have less than 13 weeks left!

I should be posting again next week with pics from Sean's bday (oct 25th), and our last solo trip to the fair this sunday! i cant wait for Lani to go with us next year. unitl next time~

Let the countdown begin!!!!

It's crazy to imagine but we are less than 100 days til our little button arrives. It's so hard to image that in a few months out daughter will be here.

Current tasks:

~ Still trying to decorate her nursery (the baby bed has been a major stresser)
~ Buying her bedding. of course i didn't like anything in the stores so we had to go custom
~ Thank you cards ( i ordered super cute ones from and have to fill them out)
~ Make a guest list for our baby shower
~ Clean out our garage!!!! the dreaded garage.

Other updates:

My job gave us a baby shower. it was actually a group shower since Frankford seems to have something in the water that causes people to get preggo! (i'm also a bit suspicious of the local sundays and fridays, which allows for us to have a full family day now! This will also be helpful when lani gets here

we have also officially enrolled out baby in daycare. this actually makes me a little sad, but i know she will be at a great school and learning great things (they even teach sign language to the babies)
