An Update {Baby, Blog Hops and lovely Surprises!}

Hi crafty pals!

What a weekend! We moved into our new home and I also received a HUGE box of goodies from a lot of dear crafty friends! Lori Turner organized a blog hop for me and our sweet little girl. We are less that two weeks away from the big day and we are sure excited! And nervous!

A week ago, I received a box that said, do not open until Saturday, March 25th! Well, wasn't I surprised to find out that there were cards, handmade gifts and other lovely messages inside. It all correlated to a hop! You can see the hop by clicking HERE.

Just look at the goodies in this box! Wow! I was floored and I will admit, a little teary eyed!!! (Darn pregnancy hormones). They sure did surprise and overwhelm me. It is just so humbling reading each kind blog post. I have never felt so much love and I seriously had no idea that all of these lovely crafty people, who have been on teams with me or for me, actually liked me that much! LOL!!! Sounds silly but I was and still am overwhelmed by the generosity and kindness shown by everyone. Thank you so much, Lori for all of the hard work you put into surprising me. I will cherish this hop and all of the gorgeous cards we received, forever.

My hubby's best friend from childhood was out visiting us and he is a professional photographer. He took some fun shots of us a couple of weekends ago. Here they are below.

Yes...we are dough heads (that is what my dad would call us). This was my super model face...LOL! Big hair and big belly!

This is my favourite photo. I cannot believe how big my belly uterus has become. I had no idea! LOL! 

In other news...we have moved into our new home. It is amazing! My hubby did most of the work himself and I will be happy when he can slow down and take a break. The nursery colours morphed into something a bit different than my original plan...I am going to try to post photos of it soon.

I wanted to share the cards I am making to send to some of my crafty friends to thank them for their wonderful virtual shower. I used some Stampin' Up stamps and kept my design simple. Not the best photo from my phone...
