Wedding Expo Fun

Yesterday was the Thanksgiving Point Wedding Expo and we had a booth there for the photo biz. It was a lot of fun and good for business, but more on that later. We've been lucky enough to be next to Shutter Booth for the past two expos and they were so kind as to let us take a turn getting our pictures taken.

This was yesterday:


And this was at the January expo:

Besides doing baby stuff, I've been busy in cheer getting the girls ready for a competition. This is one of Mollie's first attempts at a basket toss and the videos are two of their halftime routines.

I've also been busy with photography, both in shooting photo sessions and getting ready for the Thanksgiving Point Wedding Expo this coming Saturday!

Project: Nursery pt. 2

Yesterday I called my mom and told her that I wanted to make a pillow for the nursery. But first I had to find the perfect fabric, and I needed her expert opinion. So together we went to Broadbent's in Lehi, wallpaper sample in hand, and found the perfect fabric. Last night I got out the shears and machine and made this pillow:

then Jason and I teamed up to re-cover the lampshade in the same fabric:


I'm pretty pleased with the results.

Project: Nursery pt 1

I've been on the fence a little (okay, a lot) on how I want baby girl's nursery to look. I've explored every option from gender neutral to all-out-girl. Then my mom's neighbor just re-did her girls room with the most spectacular pink wallpaper and offered me her extras ... and the nursery "theme" was settled on.



The idea is this: the wall paper on one wall with the rest of the walls in a light/blush pink. The ceiling will stay the same grey color, so I want to make it sort of a grey and pink themed, girly but classy/elegant. Like this:

One of the things I knew I wanted was a girly chandelier. I found the perfect one, and last night Jason and I (okay fine, Jason) installed it:









And yesterday I made my best find, an upholstered rocker/glider better than the one I'd been jonesing for from Pottery Barn Kids. At a price that I could not pass up (especially with the addition of the 20 percent off coupon I had!) Thank you DownEast Home!!

27 weeks

This is the last week of my second trimester and I intend to enjoy it to the fullest before I become to large to function normally (my bump is already starting to hinder my movement)

What 27 weeks means for baby and me
