Thank you Pintrest and Hobby Lobby!

So I (like I'm sure many others of you) have become somewhat obsessed with Pinterest! I can pin like nobody's business, but I hadn't taken the next step and tried out anything that I'd actually pinned..UNTIL recently! I am proud to say that I've finally tried my very first craft on Pinterest and it was to make a wreath for Abigail's room. I looked at the instructions, and it looked super easy so I decided to try it out! I headed over to Hobby Lobby to get my supplies and when I walked in I noticed the hot pink and black baby girl section. I of course hurried over to investigate and boy am I so glad I did!

A couple of weeks earlier, I'd been over at my friend Alisha's house and was looking at her nursery for her soon to be baby boy! I was investigating the closet and saw that she had the cutest baby boy closet dividers to organize all of his clothes by month! I loved them and asked where she got them. She told me they had been a gift so I began the search for some for Abigail's closet. I found some at BabiesRUs but they were NOT very cute. I looked online and still couldn't find anything. I looked on Pinterest and found where a mom made her own using wooden rings, scrapbook paper, and stickers, so I figured I'd just make my own.

Enter Hobby Lobby and the baby girl section! What do you suppose that I found while looking on this shelf?! Why only the perfect closet dividers ever! Literally, I squealed because they were so perfect and so cheap! I could not have made them more perfect for her room if I had tried! I love, love, love them!

After I found my dividers, I moved on to get my supplies for the wreath. I got everything and then headed out to make it! I am happy to report that making it was as easy as it looked and I absolutely loved how it turned out! I was SO proud of myself! It's now hanging on the door to her nursery! Here's the final product! :)
 If you want to try making one, here's where I found it! I also love that the one she made matched Abigail's nursery perfectly! I decided to add a little more to the wreath, so I bought a wooden A that fit the wreath, painted it black, and then hot glued it on.

All I can say is yay for easy crafts and Hobby Lobby! :)

Abigail's gift!

My sweet blog friend Ashley e-mailed me and said that she wanted to send a gift for Abigail! How precious is that! We received her package this week and couldn't wait to open it! :)

 super cute bag with a super sweet card! :)
Look at how precious those outfits are! I LOVE them and absolutely can't wait for Abigail to wear them!

Ashley, thank you again so much! Abigail and I are so blessed to have such a sweet blog friend like you! We can't wait until Miss Amelia gets here and then Amelia and Abigail can be blog baby friends! You ROCK! :)

Counting my blessings..

Today I found out that a co-worker lost her baby yesterday. She was 18 weeks pregnant. Over Christmas she found out that it was a little boy and she and her other 2 sons were so excited! When she went to the Dr. they discovered that the baby was not growing appropriately and probably had Downs syndrome or something along those lines. When she returned to the Dr. yesterday, they didn't find a heartbeat. Tonight she went to the hospital and they induced labor. I cannot begin to imagine how she must feel. My heart breaks for her and her family.

Tonight I am reminded that each day is a precious gift and we are not promised tomorrow. I am counting my blessings tonight and thanking God that my pregnancy is going wonderful and myself and my daughter are healthy. I am thankful that today at my Dr.'s appointment the Dr. just gushed about how perfectly my pregnancy was going and how Abigail is growing right on track and everything is just as it should be. I am thankful that I heard my daughter's heart beating today at 152 bmp! I am thankful that she has continuously kicked me all day today!  Thank you God for everything!

Please be in prayer tonight for my co-worker and her family. I know this road will not be an easy one.
