Baby Room Revealed!

 Lots of pictures coming your way. I don't have much to say about the baby room, since words really just speak for themselves. But I did have a very fun time putting things together and I LOVE the way it turned out. It's just so bright and cheerful (as well as a little touch of nerdiness). There were many things that people gave us that we added to the room. It makes it much more special. I'm so happy with the bright orange and pink theme and I hope you all enjoy. ^_^

Here's the room when we first moved here... then the room as empty... and then the transformation to a baby room!

  And here's some close ups of some of the room features! yay!

Babymoon Getaway

 Jason came home the other day and told me he had the day off! So naturally... I couldn't let him have a whole day to himself.. ;) So I said, "Let's both take the day off and go somewhere to relax!" We'd been thinking of having a little "babymoon" before Sara comes, but it was too expensive and we didn't think it was worth it. BUT... on a Sunday night, it's actually a good deal. So we found a cozy place in Pismo Beach on the cliffs of the ocean! People like to ask what we did and I laugh and say "We really didn't actually DO much, we just sat around watching the ocean, watching baseball, reading, and just enjoying each other's company." But here's some pictures:
Can't beat that view from our balcony!
We found a beached whale! muhahaha
Our bunny friend who ate right outside our door.
 This last picture was funny. We had been walking and when I was facing forward it didn't look like I was pregnant at all! And then I'd turn to the side and say "BAM". Jason cracked up and then made me take a picture. It's crazy how big my belly has gotten.

Like I said, it was really nice just being about to hang out with my husband and just be together. Even if it was just sitting in two different chairs reading and watching the world go by. I remembered how lucky of a girl I am to have crossed paths with such a wonderful man. We got into some good conversations about the Tuesday night bible studies going on at church and it was nice to have my brain questioned and my faith brought to the front of my mind. And it was just great to engage in that spiritual conversation with my other half again. I feel like we've been slacking in that area. And tonight we had some good talks about our families and the family we are starting and our fears and excitements about it all. Talking to him tonight made me think of Love Languages and how it's not just about finding your husband's love language, BUT it's about finding your husband's FAMILY'S love languages too. And then he teased me about writing a book on the subject... but I'm writing my thought out on here instead. But really, I came to the conclusion that it is really important for you to express your love languages to your in-laws and the other way around too! I feel like that's one reason why people have a hard time fitting in with their new families at times. It'd just be as simple as figuring out what type of "love language" they speak and understanding that that's where they're coming from! Not just using the love language that YOU understand and show others, but really understanding there's and speaking it to them.

Anyway, that's just my thought here at midnight on a Tuesday. This is the first night I've really had insomnia since I've been pregnant. At least I'm being somewhat productive right? ^_^

A couple weekends ago, we had the privilege of getting our maternity pictures done by Melissa Folk here in Lompoc. We had lots of fun and I think they turned out pretty! I loved that we got to take them in the walnut grove with all the trees! My hand is on my belly a lot though... I now realize. ha Well I was being directed to do so, so no judging. ;) Enjoy!
