finally friday baby shower

i popped open my phone calendar this morning and was absolutely elated to see that the only thing scheduled was my baby shower this sunday. that means almost an entire weekend of NO PLANS! that means almost an entire weekend of hanging out at the farm working in the garden and getting things ready for […]

Sheep Nursery

our first step in getting started on the nursery was to call the exterminator. glamorous i know. and once that was all taken care of (listen, farmhouse problems aka field mice).. once that was all taken care i felt like i could move on to getting started taking care of the nursery. it was a […]

thirty four

here we are again. seriously the time went by so fast that i skipped right over week 33! the days seem so long but the time just flew by. and now we are at thirty four weeks. that means baby could honestly now really come at any time. my feet say they’d be just fine […]
