Nursery Art!!!

here's a sneak peek of all the different artwork that i've bought, framed and finally put up on the walls in the nursery. now, i decided where everything went but my AWESOME mom was the one who did all the labor, seeing as i am giant whale and walking exhausts me. (side note, the tv is not a permanent fixture. we're just using it for guests until the girls get here)
the hooks my mom put up are really for their bath towels but since we haven't gotten them yet we hung up dresses with bloomers. they are too cute! who knew i'd ever like pink so much?

i'm super happy to see everything coming together.
next week we are getting rid of the bed and putting up the crib!
time, please keep on flying by:)

face & belly

yesterday my pal Annie screamed and yelled at me for a good 10 minutes about how she wanted to see a picture of my face AND my belly in one photo. she kept getting pics of just my belly and she expressed a need for a FULL photo. well, it's quite hard to get all 3 of us in the frame with my IPhone but i did my best because Annie threatened to never speak to me again if i didn't send her said photos.
so, i decided to share em with you guys too!
(Annie has NEVER screamed OR yelled at me in my entire life. i actually was laughing out loud as i typed such things because they couldn't be LESS like Annie. love you Pone!)

Everything Changes

You aren't seeing things. My last post was indeed about how i had shot a BUNCH of new pictures for a huge shop update.
but life isn't what it used to be and plowing ahead is not an option when i'm trying to grow 2 healthy babes in my tummy.
i had been stressing all week about getting things in motion and keeping this house from not becoming a total tornado.
i sat down to the computer to start editing this morning and one obstacle after the next kept getting thrown my way. i have no room to put cases and bags in my lap and draw on them. i can't pack huge boxes and suitcases, my back just gets mad at me. ack!
the Mr. was still sleeping and i was having a meltdown:( after talking with both my mother and my mother-in-law and getting the BEST support and advice from my etsy & blogging buds via twitter i decided i just couldn't keep up. i needed to put the shop in vacation mode if i was going to make it another day.
i woke up robert and he was, of course, SUPER SUPPORTIVE. the babies and me come first he adamantly told me! he whipped up a plan in no time for us to be able to make all of our ends meet financially, calmed all of my fears and worries, had me make a grocery list so we girls could have the proper nutrients for the weekend, told me to put the shop on hold ASAP and then tucked me in for nice 3 and a half hour nap.
i woke up to a delicious greek salad for dinner and robert had hooked up netflix in the girls room, just for now of course, while we still have the queen bed in there. i'm officially in "relax mode". it's really difficult for me to not be doing a bunch of things at once but i NEED to listen to my body, which is clearly telling me to slow down.
so, for now, Get Ready Set Go is on a break. and i'm not worried. it's the right thing to do for my family:)
thanks for reading, thanks for the support.
it never ceases to amaze me how much support my online friends give me. it's IN-credible!
love, love
