Hello! I feel like I have been absent from this space lately.  We have been very busy with Love Threads, and of course with the arrival of our little girl right around the corner.  My good girlfriend is throwing us a shower in a couple weeks, and then it will be time to welcome the biggest joy of our lives.  SO EXCITING!

In the meantime here are some fun links to check out…

Yay, It’s Wednesday!  We are having an extra good week over here so far.  How about you? Next week I’m going home to see my friends and family, and couldn’t be more excited!  These are the girls who know me through and through and love me unconditionally, what more could you ask for.  Not only that, but it’s HOME! I get to see my mom and dad, who have been traveling for the last month in Asia, and I have hardly been able to talk to them.  Lots and lots of good stuff!

Hope everyone is having a swell week.  Our baby furniture has started to arrive, very exciting!  My husband is a champ putting these things together.  I gave up after one bolt.  Can they just come assembled, or is that asking for too much?

Is it really Wednesday already?!  We had our 3-D ultrasound this week. Unfortunately, our little lady is a bit stubborn (I wonder who she gets that from), and didn’t want to show her pretty little face.  She gave us a good foot, arm, and butt shot. That’ll work, I guess.  She really knows how to keep her mommy and daddy in suspense.

Anyway, on that note, here are some fun links to check out from around the web….
