26-28 week update

Time for an update! 
Kind of a random one.
2 weeks ago i was at 26 weeks, so here's a peek at what that looked like.

Also this has to be one of my favorite recipes right now!
Broccoli Beef over brown rice.
You can check out the recipe HERE you won't regret it i promise!
Or its a pregnancy thing for me, especially since i can't enjoy Panda Express right now!
(not worth the heartburn that place!)

Onto Week 28
Just gonna dive right into the 3rd trimester.
I actually imagined this day when i was like 4 or 5 weeks pregnant but it seemed like it was so far away and now BOOM here it is.
If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen one of these pictures.

How far along? 28 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss:   I've gained 15lb so far.
Maternity clothes? Oh yes! it's sometimes hard to find cute stuff, but i manage :P
Stretch marks? Yep, those little stretch marks are still there
Sleep:  Yes, usually wake up once if not twice to pee or if my hips hurt from sleeping on one side.
Best moment this week: Well i went to another consignment sale and had some success so that was fun, also having our bathroom floor finished - i know really exciting stuff!
Miss Anything? feta cheese
Movement: Yes! She seems to want to party at 10pm right as I'm going to sleep - hope this is not a glimpse of her future hahaha
Food cravings: I'm really wanting a milkshake from Burgermaster - a strawberry one....
Anything making you queasy or sick?  Just the normal
Gender: Still a GIRL!
Labor Signs: Just some braxton hicks contractions, to be expected.
Symptoms: If i overdo it on my feet they start to hurt that's when i know to call it a day!
Belly Button in or out? still out.
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy - except when a certain little girl WON' T GO TO BED, like right now! she should of been asleep an hour ago.

Looking forward to: Going out of town this weekend, our family need a break! Also sewing i need to finish the crib skirt (my last "big" project for now) also looking forward to getting that room organized, crib up and furniture moved around/moved out. 
Also been doing a lot of spring cleaning- i love a clean house! So surprised at how much energy I've had.

DIY Headband Holder

Hope you all are having a great weekend!
Today we went to visit some friends, they have a daughter just around Hailey's age so she had lots of fun playing, and riding her bike while we were there, it was so nice to get out in the sunny weather!

I was feeling crafty yesterday so I whipped up this headband holder really quick, I've actually made a no sew headband holder before years ago, if you want to check it out you can HERE
This one is a little different than that one.
And of course i love how it turned out!
They are ridiculously easy to make, and i plan on making 1 more.

This is what i used:
Empty Oatmeal Container
Candle holder
Giant Flower
Scrapbook paper
And a glue gun 
(You could also use modge podge but i used what i had on hand)

First i measured the paper to fit around the container and then i just hot glued it on.
Done and done.

Then i glued the trim around the outside of the cap.

And then i glued the pretty flower on top

Trim around the bottom was also a nice touch.

 And there you go!
I placed one of my daughter headbands on it, but i can't wait to make some of my own!

Maternity clothes? I'm getting very close to that point, right now i practically have nothing that fits!
Stretch marks? Sadly yes - but there very small - my body's not used to being this big people!
Sleep:  Lately i sleep until 5:30am and then im just awake - but i can't complain it could be worse.
Best moment this week: Being able to finish sewing the crib bumpers, which i'll share another time! And going to a HUGE children's consignment sale!
Miss Anything? Wearing jeans! I love leggings but this girl needs a pair of jeans once and awhile!
Movement: Yes! She like to jump up and down in there!
Food cravings: Nope not any come to mind
Anything making you queasy or sick?  Just the normal
Gender: Girl!
Labor Signs: nope
Symptoms: Only back issues sometimes, and then sitting on the floor - not good for me.
Belly Button in or out? there's not doubt about this outie over here.
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy

Looking forward to: getting the crib this week :D

A couple weeks ago i was so happy to get this beauty for free!
say what?!?
(I have been searching FOREVER for a dresser that could double as a changing table)
The lady who had it was going to sell it for $40 which is still a steal of a deal, but they had some "issue's " getting it down there stairs so they ended up just giving it to us.
We brought it home, fixed a couple things and 
I think this beauty will do the job.
My forever search for a changing table/dresser has come to an end!

Also couldn't resist posting this one of Little miss H
She seriously cracks me up!
I love her imagination and the stories she comes up with,i'm am one entertained Mom!
