Welcome Fall!

My favorite time of the year! Pumpkins, leaves, and cooler weather! Anyone who knows me knows my love for the fall. I mean, seriously, I have 6 huge tubs of Halloween decor in my storage unit! And my very favorite part? Jackson's Orchard of course! Even though I live two hours away, I ALWAYS have to make time for a trip to the orchard. This year, I figured I better go early, as I am well on my way to being the size of a HOUSE... So, last trip to mom and dad's, we made sure to stop at the orchard on our way back home. It was such a nice day! A little warm, but regardless, the apples and pumpkins were plentiful as was the cherry apple cider! I couldn't help but think, while I was eating my golden delicious, that this time next year I'll have a sweet baby to pack around while I'm there! I can see it now, little bluejean overalls with no shirt underneath, barefoot... In the pumpkin patch... Probably screaming his head off! Either way, I'll have fun taking pictures of it! Here are some shots from our trip.

Shower time!

So, last weekend was my first "official" baby shower at mom's house. Thrown by my bestie Rebecca Brewer, and my sister-in-law Kristen Vincent (and of course mom). I was so surprised by how much hard work they had put into this event! Kristen even learned how to make her own bows off of youtube! Haha! They went with an orange and blue theme and everything was decorated to the hilt. There were a lot more people there than I expected to be and it was SO good to see everyone! Too bad my swelling came back this week and I, again, look like a beached whale... Either way, whale or no, it was a great time! We got lots of great things that we were needing, like our pack-n-play, travel system, high chair, bottles, blankets, etc. I didn't think we were gonna fit it all back in the car to drive back to Evansville! We are so very lucky to have such great family and friends willing to shower us with so much love!!

My also pregnant cousin, Melissa. Believe it or not, she is only two weeks behind me...
