We Heart Olivia!

My thoughts and prayers go out to a dear friend of mine.
Her 4 day old baby girl is going in for her first heart surgery today.
I wish and pray for a safe surgery and for the strengths for all involved. 

We love you Olivia!

To learn more about Olivia's story, 
head on over to her mommy's blog.

Just a day in History.

Just a little bit of history I wanted to note today!
Today marks 6 years that I have been with my hubby. 
I'm talking since we first started dating!! :)

So in honor of the day I wanted to take you down memory lane a bit.
Here is a picture of us from my senior year at my prom!
(we went to different schools)

Aww.. so young! :)
Here is a more recent picture of us back at a friends wedding in Tahoe.
This picture is the last picture of us as a family of three (see her head..)
We found out three weeks later that #2 was on her way!

Another Tutu in the house!!!

That's right!! We are having ANOTHER little girl!!
I'm very excited, but still a little shocked.
I was dead set that it was a boy because of how different my pregnancies have been.
Two little girl!!
Daddy is in a little bit more shock than me at the 
thought of two girls.
We did the calculations and at one point we are going to
have a 13 and a 16 year old!!! AHHH!
But one day at a time.

In Dr news. Everything looks good, except I have a low lying placenta.
Which will most likely fix its self, but could cause problems.
So for now, the hubby gets to keep his hands off till 32 weeks
and I get to go back for another ultrasound then too!

But other than that...all is well, in the baby making depot!!

Touchdown or Tutu?!?!?

Yes...the hubby and I are BIG Miami Dolphins fans!

I am all for team Touchdown!! But the Hubby is on team Tutu!!

We are keeping the results a surprise from family until Xmas
so I will be back after the holidays to share the news!

I love thrift stores!!

I love some of the things that you can find at the thrift stores. Usually I like all of the cute vintage finds that you can find there. But about a week ago my mom found two things even better!!!

Look at what she scored. (not the best pictures, thank you cell phones!)

The price of the double stroller was $20 and the swing was $25 (selling on ebay for $125 still!! SCORE!!) The best part was....they were then 20% off!!! (DOUBLE SCORE!!)

My mom ended up paying around $35 for both! I actually REALLY like the swing. I love ocean themes!(so does the hubby and Little Miss) The stroller I could really care less what it looks like, its just one of the needed items if you have two little ones. But man, those things can be pricey!! I'm all for saving money when it comes to baby gear, and I am very proud of it! :)

Granny Square centers.

Call me silly, but I have gotten the crocheting bug again. And what shall I do with this bug you ask...
I've decided to start on a baby blanket for the new one on the way. Funny thing is, is that we don't know what it is yet. haha. So what do I do when I wanna start a blanket but don't know the color scheme?

Make white granny square centers!!!

This way I can go with any colors that I want once we find out what the baby is. Also, since Little Miss does not have a "hand made my mommy" crocheted blanket, I will more than likely have enough yarn in this skene to make enough for a blanket for her too!! Yay mama!!!

I will make sure to keep everyone updated with the progress of BOTH blankets. :)

'Till next time... 

Belly pics!!

I thought it was about time to show off the ever growing belly. And when I came across a picture of me from my last pregnancy I had to compare the two! Im really happy that I don't look a gazillion times bigger with this new baby. I just look like my belly is going to turn into a torpedo and shoot people. haha. Well I hope you enjoy my little picture and flashback down memory lane. :)

Look!! Im not much bigger this time around! yay!

Getting back in action...

So we finished our move.

We moved in with my parents for about 2.5 months, in order to get the finances in order to get a place of our own before this baby comes. :)

Although we are all three (four!) stuck in one small bedroom, I think its now going to drive me too crazy. The best part is I get the use of a nice big screen computer. To use for what ever I please! (bring on the blogs and facebook. teehee)

The family is finally settled enough where I feel confident coming back.

So here's to getting this place back in action!!! :)

'Till next time...

Very excited!

I have been holding off on getting this blog started again and I think it is finally time to.

I have a new look and I am going to have a new direction to start it off.

I started this blog as a craft blog, but I have found that my everyday life as a mommy to a toddler kinda distracted me from doing the fun crafty things that I wanted to show on the blog. This gave me an idea....a mommy blog!!!

I have been having baby fever for some time now and found myself always looking at mommy/family blogs over crafty blogs. I still LOVE to craft and that little part of my life will show up here and there, but I think I will focus on the family part as the main focus.

It also helps that we are now expecting baby #2!! We do not know the gender yet, but will be finding out very soon! :)

Now that I have a new focus for the blog I shall be off to start planning and searching for fun blog posts!!
