36 Weeks & Sawyer's Room is DONE!

We finally got the nursery done...with 4 weeks to spare!  And not even a full 4 weeks - I can't even believe my due date is in 3 weeks and 4 days!!

Another great weekend in the books...this was a long one for me.  I took the day off of work Friday to get some things done at the house - carpets cleaned, water softener fixed, washer fixed, touch up paint, cable fixed - fun things like that!

I also wanted to get some cooking done before Sawyer gets here since I am not thinking I will have as much time to cook.  Barry and I bought a deep freezer last week so I needed to fill it!  Our inside freezer isn't very big so between Barry's hunting, my cooking, and hopefully having some breast milk reserves - it is stuffed!

I spent about 7 hours in the kitchen on Friday and this was the result...


I made spaghetti sauce, a pot of beans, Gus's CasseroleCheesy Chicken & SpinachCindy's Casserole5 Ingredient Low Carb Casserole, and "Sour Cream" Enchiladas.  It was quite the productive day!

Saturday my mom came down to help me finish up Sawyer's room and get everything organized because it was a major disaster!  We got everything washed, hung, folded and put away.  She was the HUGEST help all weekend - THANKS MOM!  We also ran some errands to get some odds and ends I still needed.

Another perk of being pregnant...close parking!
Barry and I totally forgot to take my pictures on Friday before he left town to go hunting so my mom took them for me before we went to dinner on Saturday.  36 Weeks & 2 days...



Sawyer is now the size of a watermelon...a fruit that makes sense!  I am still feeling really good and sleeping fairly well, some nights better than others, but it's not so bad.  I am pretty hungry most of the time, and still getting contractions quite often - usually at night.  She moves around a lot in the evenings when I finally sit down...its crazy to see my stomach moving around so much!

We had an AWESOME dinner down town Saturday night with some family that was visiting town and some that already lives here.  My dad's cousin Monica was in town working on a job and found this delicious seafood restaurant...I will definitely be going there again!

Today, my friend Laura Lynn invited my mom and I to go to the Nutcracker Holiday Market with her and our other friend Lindsey.  It was a really LONG day, but the shopping was great and I can't wait to go back next year.  We picked up some Christmas gifts and I got this super cute plaque made for Sawyer's room...


How perfect is that verse for her bird themed room?!?  Speaking of her room...IT'S DONE!  I still need to print some pictures to fill the frames, but other than that, it's ready to go.

Someone snuck in this picture...what a creeper!  The painting that my cousin is doing will go right above the crib.



We bought those pictures on our trip to Key West and Barry made the headboard...he's so handy!
So there it is...I am really happy with the way it turned out.  We can't wait to bring Sawyer home...it's very surreal that we will be holding her in that chair in no time!
