a little overwhelmed...to say the least

Wow, I am spent!

On top of getting anxious about Juice Drop coming in roughly 7 weeks, losing my mind and forgetting to pay bills, we are having to unpack the boxes we still have yet to unpack from moving in 6 months ago!

What were we thinking waiting until the end like this?!

And on top of unpacking boxes, these are the things that need to be done just in general and in her nursery:

Get life insurance
Find a pediatrician
Write a birth plan
Pack ours and Juice Drop's hospital bags
Sew changing pad cover, pillows, and curtains
Paint doll baby bed and little rocking chair
Buy lamps and nightlight
Make mobile
Buy storage containers

Oh yeah, and do our job by spending time with kids and connecting with adults in our neighborhood and take a week off next week to drive to Indiana to be in one of my best friend's weddings!

Phew! Can I take a nap now?

How far along? 33 Weeks
Total weight gain: 28 lbs
Maternity clothes? Most of the time. 
Stretch marks? Nope 
Sleep: I had a great night's sleep last night! Woo Hoo!! I only had to get up once to pee and it was cool enough in our room that I could use blankets to cover up. Uh-Mazing! I realize this was just a teaser because I know my sleepless nights will reemerge very soon (most likely tonight).
Best moment this week: Spending time in Greenville and having my girl friends there throw me my 2nd baby shower! *pics below*
Miss Anything? Being comfortable.
Movement: Morning, noon, and night! Hiccups at least once a day :) 
Food cravings: Nada
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Gender: GIRL!!!
Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks are getting stronger.
Symptoms: Back and rib pain, Braxton Hicks, peeing ALL THE TIME (even when hardly anything comes out!), shortness of breath, memory lapse, clumsiness, swollen fingers and toes (this heat is redonkulous!)
Belly Button in or out? Outie!
Wedding rings on or off? I'm trying my hardest to keep my ring on until Lindsey and Matt's wedding. 
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! Unless I'm outside or hungry lol
Looking forward to: Getting this apartment straightened and finally finishing the nursery!

My baby shower in Greenville was amazing! I got to see some ladies I haven't seen in a few years and it was so great reconnecting with everyone. A huge thank you goes out to the ladies who were involved in putting it all together and making me feel very special! Donica, Dee, Beth, and Jayne, you all ROCK!

These cupcakes are too cute!!
The food was delicious!

We got a lot of great things for Juice Drop!

Ok, check out this candy-it's called Juicy Drop Taffy!!! 

I'm in love with these Mary Jane socks!

Prayers over Juice Drop 
 I feel so blessed! Thank you Beth, Donica, and Dee!

P.S. a durian looks like this: ...hopefully Juice Drop isn't as prickly ;)
