34.5 weeks!

I'm actually closer to 35 weeks but I've been delayed in my posts!  I'm definitely feeling more tired and ready to have my body back to myself.  I have this week off and with Ben back in town, we've been getting her room all ready.  It's almost there and she is almost here!  The next few weeks are going to fly by with the holidays, family, and wrapping up work.  Mild moments of panic creep in from time to time but I'm ready to see her little face.

Crafty Supermarket Loot!

Crafty Supermarket was awesome yesterday! I can't believe we have another show under out belts. We had nearly 2,600 shoppers and while I thought I may not make it through the day, it was still the best day ever! This third trimester is catching up with me. I've been getting in bed a 8 when all I do is sit at my desk at work so setting up, vending, and breaking down a craft show was way too much for this pregnant body. Six more weeks or so to go. Ben, my pregnant belly photographer, gets home today so stay tuned for a bump update.

I did score some awesome loot at the show for my baby girl. I didn't buy one single thing for myself...or the list Christmas list. Whoops. Despite my extreme fatigue, I couldn't wait to get home and put the whale print in a frame! Here's who made each item:
Whale Print by Marcy Davy (All Things Grow)
Skirted Bear by LUVKT
Cat Onesie by Everyday Balloons
Wooden Elephant and Giraffe by Happy Bungalow 

These are the very first things I've bought for her. Crafty Supermarket has been a pregnancy benchmark for me since I found out I was pregnant right before the last show. I've been thinking for months that I just have to get through Crafty Supermarket, wrap up work, and then she's here. Oh my, time is moving so fast now. Today's to-do list: Get the house back into shape, unpack Fabricate, and hang out with Ben! Luckily my bf Meri is coming to the rescue to help unpack the store.

We Voted Today!

I voted today in a state that I've grown to love over the last 13 years. Tonight I'm really proud to be a part of the vote here. There is no perfect politician but I'm glad that my daughter will have a president that reflects the kind of country that I believe we can be.

32 Weeks!

The countdown is on. I'm feeling like we have more to do than time to do it but it will all work out I assume. Her room is coming together slowly. We spend our Friday night assembling a crib which now startles me every time I walk past the door. She feels like she's taking boxing lessons using my bladder as a punching bag. Other than feeling more tired this last week, I'm still feeling really great so fingers crossed that keeps up over the next 8 weeks. I've been fairly warned that it will not.
