Welcome to Week 35!
This has been a week of wonderful events and surprises. :)
For starters I finished my little guys hospital outfits. I know he might not wear them all, but I at least want to use one of them for his hospital pictures. I still need to pick out a going home outfit. I might use one of these or get something different. * *The bow ties are interchangeable
I also finally got my hair cut and dyed. I had been holding off as long as I could before baby arrives. I figured it would be good to get my hair done before my baby shower though. I decided to go for an ombre and also took a good 2 or so inches off. I think it turned out great! It was a really long process since my hair is naturally so dark. I was at the salon for about 5 1/2 hours.

Before any dye:
:: BABY SHOWER ::
I was so blessed to have three of my good friends throw me a baby shower.
So many friends showed up. It was an awesome time with great food and great conversations.
My nursery has the "Where the Wild Things Are" theme incorporated in it, so they included those characters into the shower for the photo booth. It was super cute and super fun.
I have to say though - in almost every picture I have the same expression and I'm holding my belly. Don't know why I didn't switch it up a bit. ;) I think it's just a natural reaction at this point to always be holding my belly.

Guest book! Such a cute idea ::
My friend Liz bought this kids dictionary and asked that people pick and circle a word in it, and write a little note next to it explaining why they picked it.
Diapers. Can't get enough of those right? We'll be cloth diapering after he grows out of newborn diapers.
A few selfies. :P Had to show the details of my outfit!
Week 35 has been great.
As we sail into the unknown, I'm so grateful for the love that surrounds us.
Thank you all. It means a lot. :)
