Vera's Baby Shower

This past weekend I helped host a shower with my friend Jonica. The shower was for Vera White. I met her while I worked at Dillard's. She is a fellow graphic designer. She is 35 weeks pregnant now! I can't wait to meet Trent Michael!! Here are a few pictures from the shower.

This is me and Vera.

These are all the Dillard's girls.

Five Statement Pledge of Faith:

God is who He says He is. God can do what He says He can do. I am who God says I am. I can do all things through Christ. God's word is alive and active in me.

This weekend Luke and I did quite a bit of moving furniture around and preparing space for the baby. We cleared out everything in the office. So now, we have a few things that we would like to get rid of. First is an entertainment center. Our TV is too big for the top to fit over we have only been using the bottom part. We got it at Cajun Brothers in Conway. It's a very nice piece. It's about a year old and is in excellent condition. I am thinking $200.

The next item for sale is a desk. This is an older desk. It's pretty big and sturdy. In the photo, Luke has it laying on it's side to take the legs off so he can get it out of the room. This can go for $30.The 3rd and last item for sale is a jewelry box. It is one of those large standing ones. It has a place for just about any piece of jewelry you own. $20 will make this yours!

Ok...enough with that. Now to the fun stuff.

This weekend Luke and I started getting the baby's room cleaned out and ready to decorate. We went to Lowe's and got a closet organizer kit. Here is the baby's closet!! We also got a few baby things just so we would have something in the closet.
I am 17 weeks pregnant now! Here is how I look now. I feel like it's really started to bumb out! What do yall thing??? haha

Valentine's Day!

This year for Valentine's Luke and I had this bright idea to go eat on Friday night so we wouldn't have to fight the Saturday night crowd. Well, we were wrong! I think everybody else had the same idea. Everywhere we went had a really long wait time. So, we went over to one of our favorite spots, Chili's, and ate. It was delicious! Luke got me a WoodWick candle and a very sweet card....I just got him a card. :-)
On Saturday morning we got up and headed to Petit Jean State Park to spend the day. We had a blast! We hadn't been there since we had just started dating. We could not have asked for more perfect weather. Here are some pictures of our hike.

"For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight." Hebrews 4:12-13a

Growing by the minute!!

Today you can FOR SURE tell that I have a baby bump!! People are really starting to notice. They are starting to put their hand on my belly and say, " have a little baby bump!" I think it's awesome! There is a miracle growing inside of me!!

I felt the baby move for the first time on Tuesday night (Feb. 3rd). It was the coolest thing I have ever felt! It was around 3:00 a.m. I had to go to the bathroom (which is very common these days) and when I got back in bed and got settled I felt a little flutter on the left side of my stomach. At first, I thought it was just gas or something....but it did it a few more times. It finally dawned on me that it was the BABY!! It lasted just for a minute...but I layed there and ate up every second.

Tonight I am going to a Premier Jewelry party at Stephanie Ingram's house. I am pumped!! I love jewely! AND it will be fun to have a girl's night. F.Y.I - Stephanie Ingram is officially our baby's nanny!! She is going to keep our baby Tuesday - Thursday. She is soooo perfect for us! She lives only about 3 minutes away from us and we love her. Her and her husband, Seth, are in our Sunday School class. They have the cutest little boy named Ryan. We are soooo blessed to have them in our lives!

This weekend Luke and I will be in Conway. My home church (2nd Baptist) is having their annual Beast Feast. Luke and my dad go together every year. They LOVE it. They always have a special guest speaker and lots of prizes to give away. This year the grand prize is an RV!! I hope Luke wins it!! :-) I love camping!! They also have guns, bows, duck calls, 4-wheelers, etc for door prizes. We are going to stay until Sunday and just spend some quality time with my parents. We haven't really hung out with them since Christmas. :-(
