Baby's Room

He's only getting half the room currently, we're using the other half to store some totes we don't have room for anywhere else. But eventually, after much time sorting and clever storing, he'll get the entire room.

We're getting a crib bumper, sheet and duster set for the second baby shower, I've already seen it and it's adorable. So the crib will look a lot more put together then.

Clearly, we're going for a safari animal theme. Lots of monkeys and elephants, the occasional lion.

And yes, that's a teddy bear in a diaper on the changing table.

Halloween Eearrings

I've mentioned time and time again that I'm making loads of earrings but haven't shown much of anything yet. These earrings are all halloween inspired, the orange, black and green that I associate with the Halloween season. They're elegant and not so spooky cheesy, that you can wear them to parties, with costumes, with every day wear. They're nothing over the top, but I think they're cute.

I'm slowly, every so slowly, listing them on Etsy. Go have a look, gear up for the fall season, or just enjoy a little browse. Peacock Tres Chic at Etsy.

Nothing new on the baby front. He's still kicking like a champ, expecting a rowdy little bundle. I've got some problems with my hips but expecting it to go away shortly.

Look at the adorable little owl! I have half a mind to keep him, but I have enough jewelry, I need to share. I think he's perfect for the Halloween season, owls are all spooky like, though... this one is too cute to be really spooky. Anyhow, he's available at the Shop!
In other news, I saw my doc this morning, and I got some good news that will allow me to rest a little easier. I had to have a second ultrasound because my baby had a cyst on his brain way back when I had my first one done. She said 9 times out of 10 it gooes away by 28 weeks so we'd check again. I thought fantastic, I'd be that 1 out of 10. My luck tends to run that way. But it's gone and baby is perfect!

Goodbye Tudors

Sigh. I will miss you King Henry
Just watched the final episode. There were tears.

Things I miss

Hello third trimester!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm in the home stretch, I can see light at the end of the tunnel!

However, having made it this far, and my size really restricting some of the things I used to do with ease, I've been thinking lot about the things I miss about being my normal old size, and look forward to again once this is all over.

*Sleeping on my belly
*Letting Squee sleep on my chest
*Curling up in a corner of the couch
*Snuggling up to my husband's back at night
*Skinny jeans
*Guilt free coffee

Back to that light at the end of the tunnel.... these are some of my favorite Etsy baby items.

Ice in Autumn

I heart this little piece here. It came to me last night when I thought I was done.
It's listed at my Etsy shop.

Excited about fall

It's my favorite time of year, autumn. It might be a little early, but it's on it's way. I love the colors, and once it starts to cool down..... sweaters! I love me some sweaters.

A few pieces of jewelry to celebrate this beautiful time of year.

I love this post, even though I don't have a toddler, the recipes are fantastic. Pumpkin and Sweet potatoes are some of my favorite things to eat.

The Animal Rescue Site

Each day I go to this website, where you can click a button and help feed shelter animals absolutely free. You can click once every 24 hours.
Please visit and click the link, I promise it doesn't cost a penny and it doesn't ask you to type anything in.

Most comfy spot in the house

is apparently the X-Box carrying case lol These two were fighting over it all evening. When one was in it, the other sat a couple feet away and glared. It would only be vacant a few seconds before the other would take over lol


I'm undecided about posting some of my bracelets to my shop. There's only one bracelet there, but I want to make sure I have plenty to take with me on Saturday. Though I'm reasonably sure they're not going to sell between now and then, they're nothing special after all. But I've taken some pictures, as a little preview.
