Craziness and a lot about the baby! :)

This past month has been CRAZY!!!
Here is the short version...

Cody's car broke down...So, what do we do?
We buy him a jeep! He's in love!
 
Then...DFW decides to freeze over. I miss 4 days of work because I can't drive on the ice! The SuperBowl comes to town and was literally right down the street from me! So many stars where there! 
 The traffic was INSANE! Especially after a week of being frozen indoors!

Then...I get in a car wreck! Everyone (including Sophia) is fine! Right after that I go to get my car inspected and oil changed and find out my battery is leaking (unrelated to the wreck, it was probably frozen from the week before).  An hour after that happens, I head to my hometown to register for the baby shower! I had so much fun! She will have sooo much pink stuff! haha :)

THEN....ONE day after I get back from my hometown, I get "laid off" from my job! The staffing agency calls me at 1 in the afternoon to tell me that the job doesn't need me anymore...What?!?

So...needless to say, it has been stressful around here! And I didn't even include my washer catching on fire and not being able to wash cloths for 2 weeks, the toilet overflowing all over the hallway, and the kitchen sink backing up for 2 days...Oh and the dogs waking us up all hours of the night barking. We bought a "play pen" for them and it has been a lifesaver! They sleep to 7am now! yay! :)

I can't believe all of that happened in a months time! That is crazy!!!  
But for now...I am enjoying being a stay at home wife! I have enjoyed cooking dinners, cleaning, doing projects for Sophie's room, and just resting! (And job searching haha)

I kept having cramps while at work and I think I was on my feet to much! I still get them at home, but they have significantly decreased! 

btw...
Her official name is Sophia Grace!
We will be calling her Sophie!
I love her name! :)
These letters will go over her crib! :)
I painted them myself! And glued the bows on :)

I had my 2nd doctors appointment on February 22nd. I was supposed to go on Feb. 4th, but DFW closed down because of all the ice! Sophia measured normal and I have only gained 7lbs! yay! :) My next appointment in March will be my glucose testing. My mom had gestational diabetes, so I am worried I will have it to. I am praying for the best! :)

On Feb 19th Cody finally got to see Sophia kick!
It was the coolest thing! It's crazy thinking she's really in there! haha :)

I have a lot of pictures I would like to share :)

 I gave the Grandma figurine to my mom for Christmas to tell her I was pregnant.
She made a frame to match and to sit the figurine on!
It turned out so cute! :)

 This is the onsie I made for my daddy! He is so excited!
He carries her ultrasound picture around and shows everyone! :)

This is how we told my mom-in-law!
She collects coffee mugs, so we knew she would love one that said
"Grantastic Grandma"! :) She said she drinks from it every morning now! :)

 This is how we told my father-in-law!
He said he wants one that matches lol :)
 This is her bow holder! I bought the Smile from Hobby Lobby and glued the ribbons on :)
The bows on there are from my friend Leigh! :)
She's so talented :)
I made the flower clips :)

 And this is the Bright Starts bouncer I won off of the Bright Starts Facebook page!
I love it, and I know Sophie will too! :)

 These are my completed burp cloths!
She will be burping in style! :)

 Here is her carseat! Cody's grandparents bought it for us! :)

 My jogging stroller! The only pink one I could find, and I love it! :)

 The boppy my friend Mindy got me!! I love it and can't wait to use it! :)


 Here are 3 of the flowers I made her! I was so proud! haha :)


 I absolutely LOVE this dress! I bought it at the Carter's store in Southlake for $5! It was originally $40! I was proud of myself! I hope she can wear it for Christmas! :)

 This is the top of her shelves. 
Notice the Sophia Grace in blocks! :)
I love it! :)

Well I think I have updated everything now! I have a lot of things written down in my Belly Book too. I am trying to keep up with it all! Especially since I have time for it right now! :)

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:

I didn't own any after my first half, and it took me almost 2 weeks until I could …

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
