What Shall I Do With All This Ribbon??

One of my friends used to own a baby boutique and made hair bows and such to sell there. She now has 4 kids and I guess she doesn't have the time anymore to make things. So, she asked me if I wanted a bunch of ribbon she had left over. She said that she would just give it to me if I made her youngest daughter (about the same age as Trinity) a knot dress just like the one I made for our family pictures. I happily said 'Yes!'. I hadn't seen the tote of ribbon yet so I had no idea how much I was getting.

Take a look for yourself...




Multi colored








And blue!

I couldn't believe it! I was so excited! This is a lot of ribbon!

So, what am I going to do with all this ribbon?? Make hair bows of course!

Also in the tote was a bunch of other goodies! Like bibs for me to monogram...

Brand new diaper stackers to monogram...

Baby blankets to monogram...

Trim for socks...

And a bunch of head bands!!!

Can you believe all of this??? Wow! I was thinking about opening an store before I got all of this. Now I am really going to be looking into it in the near future! The thing that is holding me back (this is crazy) is I can't come up with a good name for my "store". Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I am not creative in this aspect!

Also, if y'all know anyone needing hair bows, headbands, monogramed bibs, or anything else, just let me know! I should be able to hook you up!

Our Mother/Daughter Date!

Saturday, Trinity and I had a mother/daughter date! I got a flyer from Lifeway Christian Book Store that they were having a Kid's day and I thought it would be neat to take Trinity. I also wanted to take Trinity to Chuck E. Cheese's to let her play.

We got to Lifeway around 12:55 and the kid's day ended at 1:00. They left all the stuff up for a long time after we got there so we were able to do everything we wanted! Trinity had just woken up so she really wasn't into doing anything. As you can tell by these pictures...

This is her playing with the play doh.

After we left there, we went to Gordman's and we didn't find anything except a giant gummy bear for Daddy. (He loves gummy bears!)

Then we went to Chuck E. Cheese's. It was packed out!

This was Trinity keeping her eye on Chuck E. Cheese. She really didn't trust him! Ha!

I do not want to go back by myself though because it is far too stressful trying to keep up with Trinity with all those kids running around!

She had a blast though! I am so glad I took her!

When we left Chuck E. Cheese's, we went to Burlington Coat Factory. I was trying to find Trinity some church dresses, but I couldn't find any I liked. Anyways, they have some of their Christmas dresses out and it looks like all they have done is just put sweaters with all their Easter dresses and now they call them Christmas dresses.

We went to the mall after that and just looked around. We got a cupcake to share and it was YUMMY!

It's kind of smashed because Trinity dumped it upside down.

She loved every bite!

After we got our cupcake ate, we went to the play area and I let Trinity play. She had a GREAT time! I had to drag her out of this tunnel so we could leave!

We had a good time. We wish Daddy could have been with us but he was preaching at the jail that night. He has never been to Chuck E. Cheese's so we will have to take him!

I think we need to go on more mother/daughter dates!!!

15 Weeks

So guys, I am now 15 weeks!!! This pregnancy is really going by fast! I probably won't think that when I'm around 42 weeks! Ha!

Please excuse the toilet. I was at church in the bathroom when I took this photo!

So I went for my third OB appointment Monday. It went so good! I love going to the doctor (when pregnant)!

We were able to hear the baby's heartbeat and it was so strong! The baby kept kicking and swirling in there so she was barely able to find it! But when she did, it was beautiful!

My doctor must think I am CRAZY! Every time I have seen her I have had some kind of question about hotdogs. Ha! I am wanting a hotdog so bad and she has said no hotdogs unless they are fresh from the deli. So I asked her if I could have a hotdog from, like, Sonic or Speedway and she said yes!!! So, as soon as I am able, I am gonna have me a yummy hotdog! She also said that when I deliver, she is going to have Steven go out and buy a bunch of hotdogs and we are gonna have a hotdog party right there in the delivery room! She said that once, she had an m&m party in the delivery room. One of her patient's husbands brought her 2 huge bags of m&ms. Hmm... I wonder who she was talking about, Ashlee?? Ha!

I have been having really bad hip pain. She suggested a pregnancy back brace. Anyone tried one before??

I have some exciting news! 4 weeks from Thursday is our next ultrasound. I can't wait! I already have the invites for our gender reveal party made. We just have to set a date!

My doctor has predicted that we are having a boy. We will see. I think she said the same thing with Trinity.

I have been craving Warheads. You know, that really sour candy?? Anyone know where you can buy it? I looked at a lot of places today and couldn't find it anywhere.

I think that is all I have to say for now. See ya later!

Trinity's New House

Saturday we went to a yard sale and I finally found Trinity a play house for outside. It isn't in the best shape but for $15, she loves it!

Come into my house!

I tried to get in there with her and she would NOT have it!

Also, please excuse her dirty face!

And her mismatched outfit! Ha!

She is getting a nice little collection of backyard toys. I bought all of these toys at yard sale except her little car and I bought it at a consignment sale. I just figured up what I've spent on all these toys and it's a measly $72! That's less than what I would have paid for the play house new.

In other news.. I go for my 3rd OB appointment today. I always love these. I can't wait to hear Baby 2's heart beat!
