Happy Halloween!!

It has been a while since I have posted, so I thought it was time to update a little. Today is Halloween, so Happy Halloween to everyone! I started off Halloween with our Annual Costume/Decorations Contest at my work this year. Our department theme was "Zombieland", so we had a bunch of graves everywhere, cobwebs, scary zombies, and even Zombie Hunters this year. I went as a Zombie Hunter this year, so I dressed like a trucker, and had my rifle and hand gun at the ready. :) I did not take pictures this year (I now bad) but some people at work had some awesome costumes this year!! We also have trick-or-treating for the employees kiddos through each department, so I trick or treated with my nephews Greyson and Cody, and my niece Hannah. Cole also got lots of candy throughout the day thanks to me, so he was a bundle of movement all day! Sugar rush! Friday night Trevor and I stayed home and caught up on our DVR'd shows, and then headed to bed! We are so exciting.... lol. Saturday was a very busy day! I woke up and started getting ready for my S-I-L Tanya's shower, and then drove both Tammy and Tanya to the shower in Lantana. I have to say, I LOVE the community of Lantana. They seem very kid and family friendly, and I think that when Trevor and I finally move again, that this will be our next destination. It is farther west from where I currently live, but that will be better for Trevor's job. At the shower, we had fabulous food! I was so full by then end of that shower, I could not even eat the cake! Tanya got alot of cute, cute outfits for baby Vivian, and then we packed up my car, and we headed to Tanya's to drop off all of her gifts. After than Tammy and I went to Magnolia Cafe to eat, then went shopping for maternity clothes for me, and a costume for Trevor. I then headed home, grabbed my costume and headed to my parents house so that my Mom could paint my stomach for my costume. Trevor went as a Beer Pong cup this year with ping pong ball included (it was the easiest costume for me to get him to wear) and Cole and I went as Humpty Dumpty. My tummy was the egg and then we made a box wrapped with red wrapping paper and drawn on bricks for the wall, we also then took stockings to make the legs, stuffed them with tissue paper and then used baby shoes for the feet. So funny! Here are a few pics of me and my sister (she was Red from Fraggle Rock) and me, and then me and Trevor as well from Steph and Mike's Halloween Party.

With me being preggers, I was so tired this year! Booo..... but at least I dressed up, and I had a fun time with this costume. We had a great time! We ended up spending the night at Trevor's parents house on Saturday night after the party because the party was in Wylie, and Garland is SO much closer than Lewsiville. So on Sunday we woke up and I chatted with my Mother-In-Law Vera for a while, and then headed over to my parents house to spend the day with them. Trevor went to play Frisbee golf with his brother Trent. Then we both headed home to watch the Cowboys vs. Eagles game- and.... the Cowboys lost big time. Fail. That brings us to today, the actual day of Halloween! It's Monday, so we are at work, yay, but tonight I will be handing out candy to all of the little costumed children in my neighborhood. So cute!! I hope everyone has a very Happy Halloween! be safe and don't eat too much candy!

Crib Bedding!

The search has finally ended for my crib bedding! I had previously written about my mom and me making the crib bedding together, and looking for the fabric, but believe me when I tell you that I could not find anything that I loved. I wanted a "preppy" feel for Cole's nursery, and just could not find the vision that I had in my head. Instead of searching for stripes one afternoon, I started searching for plaid. Right away this crib bedding called "Madras" from Pottery Barn Kinds popped up. I fell in love immediately! It was pretty much a no brainer for me to choose this, and the best part is, I can order it and have it personalized with no hassle or real wait time! We have not ordered the bedding yet, but we are this weekend, and I cannot wait! The website says that it will take 5-7 days to be delivered once we order it. Here are a few pics of the bedding!

The personalized pillow that will say "Cole" in Navy just as the picture shows

The drapes for the windows- so cute!!!

The inside of the crib bumper (I am not doing the star fitted sheet, but a solid red one)

The personalized quilt that will also have Cole's name on it. LOVE!

I personally love all of the colors in this bedding set. It will give me so much leeway to decorate with whatever color I choose, and there are so many choices it's mind boggling! I am trying really hard not to create a theme, but I saw some sailboat decor that was super adorable, so I may incorporate that with other cute things to complete the room. I am so bad at decorating, I need to start watching HGTV!

In other news, it seems that I hit week 22 and my belly just exploded! It went from looking like I was getting really pudgy to HELLO PREGNANT! Kind of loving my belly (which I did not think would happen) and the fact that Cole is a very active baby. I have already been woken up at night by all of his movement, and I cannot help but sit there with my hands on my belly and laugh with complete joy. I feel so blessed! I hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather! Until next time....
