Whether you are 5 or 30…there is always a need to invite your friends to celebrate another great year! Perhaps you are celebrating the pending arrival with a baby shower to prepare for the new family member…and many great birthdays to follow! regardless, invite with style and ease…let me take care of the work of designing and printing them so all you have to do is address, stamp and put in your mail box!
These invites were designed as postcards making for easy and more affordable mailing. 4×6 is the largest postcard you can send at the $0.28 rate. Plus you don’t need the extra expense of envelopes…enjoy!
Not only did Ms. Pickle join us for a fabulous rock concert last night, Shinedown, but I came across this picture that just proves she’ll be a rockstar…papa had his rock “horns” at an early age too LOL
Ok, ok, here is a picture of me too. All I can say is I look cross-eyed…I promise we’ll still make cute babies
Before my trip to St. Paul for AMS, my sister came over to help me get the house cleaned and my bags packed. In the process we dedicated some shelfs to little Ms. Pickle to start to get her things organized. Of course the setup is just temporary because it’s simply not cute enough LOL!
On our way home from St. Paul my co-workers and I stopped at IKEA. I picked up just a few goodies but I know I could have brought a truck load home! I found a fun play mat that’s nice and padded for our hardwood floors, a organizer for toys and what-not, a drape to hang around her crib and two funky flower shapped lights.
Our neighbor’s, Brandon and Amy, have two daughters and a son. Having two girls who are now five and three, Amy had lots of goodies to hand down to us. Mom came over for a bit today and we got everything sorted from NB-6m, 6m-12m and 12m and up. We are so fortunate to have such good friends in our lives to help us get on track…lord knows we’d be lost without Brandon, Amy and their kiddos! We’ve often joked that we’ll never be able to live apart from each other.
Oh yes, I had my 22 week appointment on July 29th. Her heartrate was exactly the same as my last 4 week appointment, 143. The doctor even let us listen to her for a good minute…I could listen to it forever! I can’t wait to see her again! Next appointment is the glucose test…YUCK!
My BFF Ashley kept telling me that she had a surprise for me but didn’t want to mail so her mom, Lori, would be dropping it by…I figured out why she didn’t want to mail it…it was nail polish titled “it’s a girl!” How stinking cute is that?! I still need to make time to paint my nails with this sweet pink color
I saw an ad for Kohl’s that said all maternity clothes were 50-60% off so mom and I headed up there today. Fairly certain I about bought one of everything so when this baby bump finally pops, I’m ready! Tomorrow marks my half way milestone so anytime now — everyone keeps saying that it just happens overnight…maybe tonight is the night?! LOL
I also found the outfit that I just may bring her home in…I just know she’ll be a daddy’s girl just as I was and it matches the cutest pickle blankie that my Shawna-na-na got her!
We are so excited to announce that we have a healthy little lady on her way! We just found out on 6/30 that it’s a GIRL! Her due date is 11/29 and she seems to be right on track for her size, weight and all organs looked good. We are so blessed!
My dad was just sure it was a girl because for 6 generations on the Candee side of my family, the first born has been a daughter. Even after telling him that it’s a up to Bry, who comes from all boys, he still believed it was a girl. Needless to say he did a little happy dance and proceded to say that “girls are the best, he knows so.”
My sister and I have seemed to be joined at the hip lately…lets just say she’s loving all my pregnancy cravings which I think she’s really having rather than I LOL I took her to go see Eclipse on Thursday and on the way there she says to me “I know you want a boy and a girl but having a big sister is the best.” And I’m tearing up! Not to say Mel and I haven’t had our rough patches but she is one of my best friends…A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost. ~Marion C. Garretty
Oh and for those of you who don’t know the story behind the pickle…Bryan’s nickname since school has been “Pickle” or “Pickelson” so we’ve always joked that we’d have a baby pickle someday
Thanks for stoping by! Be sure to stay tuned to my blog for updates on “our little pickle”
