Today my pretty gift bags are featured at The DIY Show Off! That blog is full of beautiful, inspiring projects that make me wish I wasn't such a procrastinator. Thanks Roeshel! Find more gift wrapping posts here.
On Wednesday, we had a "surprise" baby shower at KD's work. JK and I showed up at 11:30 to find a table full of amazing potluck food, games and gifts ready for us, along with 20 or so of KD's coworkers. After the party, we went up to see KD's cubicle, and his inspiring 6th-floor view of the next building. And then people just started giving JK things...just because she's cute! This is what she looked like when she was done:
She's adorable, I know, but I'm starting to worry about people always wanting to give her things. I'm raising a mooch! On Monday this week, she got a free cookie at the grocery store, and on Tuesday she got a free colouring sheet. With all the stuff she got on Wednesday, I really hope she's good for a while!
As for baby news, I'm slowly working on decorating his bedroom, now that JK is sleeping in her big-girl-bed. We're trying not to spend money right now, so I have to use only what I already have. It has been fun figuring out ways to decorate!
But I'm going to have to speed things up now, because I'm going to be induced on Tuesday. So instead of having two more weeks left, I have four days before this baby comes home! My doctor is worried about extra blood vessels rupturing because I had such a low-lying placenta.
Oh, and I did finally wash my floor! I guess revealing my faults to the internet (and specifically to various friends and family who read this blog) is great motivation!


  1. Thanks so much for your submission! It was a fun change in content! I love dressing up gifts.


    And best of luck - you're in my prayers for next week! Exciting!

    Have a great & productive weekend!


  2. She is adorable! LOL she looks like she got lots of loot!

    I guess you only have two days now until the baby comes! How exciting! You can always finish decorating the room later. I hope you have a easy and speedy delivery!


  3. JK is soooo cute! I would give her stuff if I saw her too!! People are always doing that with my kids too and as they are getting older it has gotten bad- because they are now always asking for things! I just want to crawl under a rock. I wish I had thought ahead like you seem to be doing!
    What a sweet thing for KD's office to hold a shower! He must work for a very nice company. What a blessing.
    Big day tomorrow for you! You and your entire family will be in my thoughts and prayers!!!
