Boo Y'all...

Yesterday was our annual family pumpkin carving party at my parent's house. I love this day every year, but this year was really special. It was the last time that Dylan and I got to carve our pumpkins as a family of two. Pretty surreal. Especially seeing as how when these pictures were taken I'm 9 months pregnant.

We started out the day pumpkin shopping. While we were looking for the perfect pumpkins I couldn't help but notice my stomach was darn huge in comparison to the pumpkins that were for sale. So naturally we stopped to take a picture :)

So here I am with our little pumpkin- 38.5 weeks. 

I don't so much love the act of carving pumpkins, it doesn't really fit the instant gratification bill that I so much love these days...but I do love pumpkin seeds. While everyone spent their time poking holes and carving, I went around collecting everyones gunk and separated seeds. When everyone was nearly done, Dylan and I went rogue and just started carving our own little works of art. Therefore, my pumpkin art is hardly worthy of a picture- this year I went simple. Free handing. My specialty. And not to brag, but I did win a prize from the judges. "Most unique." Haha! :)

And Dylan's- GO PACK GO! 

I mean, is he not the cutest thing you ever did see? He gave up the Packer's game to carve his heart out. So a Packers pumpkin was so fitting.  

I'd say they turned out pretty great!

Nursery Tour...

I've been on Fall break/disability leave the last two and a half weeks and even with a broken tail bone- I have been a crazy nesting white tornado. OH, I didn't document I had a broken tail bone? Well, I do. It's by far the most miserable thing I've dealt with in my life. Two and half weeks in and I'm finally starting to feel some relief, but good grief. It is the worst thing ever and absolutely horrible timing. Being 36 weeks pregnant is pretty legit as is, so adding a broken butt is not exactly welcome, BUT- broken or not- I am getting stuff done and crossing things off my ginormous "things to do before baby comes" list.
 So without further ado, here are the pictures of 
Garrett Asher Buckingham's 
sweet nursery...

Now that his room is ready, I (really) can't wait to meet him! :)

Brain Dump...

1. Happy 3rd anniversary to my handsome husband. I love you more than words and can't wait for a million more days to laugh with you.

2. I said goodbye to my car. I had it for almost 8 years. That's a pretty huge chunk of my life. It took me to Indiana to college, to my first date with my husband, to Texas to start our newlywed life and to our first baby appointments. It's been around a long time. 

3. We said hello to my new mommy mobile. Perfectly acceptable to bring home our sweet boy from the hospital and start a new string of memories. :)

4. 36 weeks pregnant.
