Baby Bags and More!!!

I know I still need to post my picture on my previous post. Our internet is messed up at home and I keep forgetting to bring my camera to work and download the picture. I promise I will do it this week and update last week on Wednesday.
I haven't really been in a blogging mood lately, I'm just so tired and really just don't feel like taking the enegry. I have so much to get done around the house before Macey comes and I'm starting to stress out. I have a huge "nesting" list and I'm praying Christian and I find the motivation to get it done soon.
My MIL came in town a couple of weekends ago for a quick visit. We did a little shopping while she was here and she bought my diaper bag that I wanted for Macey.  I've really liked the Vera Bradely diaper bags since I've been pregnant and I haven't really found any other ones that I like. I decided to go with the Very Berry Paisley pattern. I just love it!!! She also bought the "Weekender" tote to match. Now Macey can having matching bags to take to the hospital!!
Sorry the picture is off centered it is the only one I could find online and that is how it kept saving.
We had a nice weekend at home.  We didn't have any plans or anything we had to do and it was nice. Friday night we went to PF Chang's for dinner and oh my word it was so yummy. I love that place!!! Saturday we pretty much hung around the house. My mom and I went out to find Macey a coming home outfit. I've been looking for some kind of dress, but I couldn't find "the one", so I got a cute little pants outfit.
I realize this kind of looks like PJ's in the picture, but it isn't. It is so adorable in person and has little lace and ruffles on it. I can't wait to to wrap my sweet girl up and bring her home!!!
Sunday we didn't do anything. I didn't feel that great and I napped all day long. And sadly it is already Monday :(
One other cute little outfit I want to share is her Halloween outfit. My due date is Oct 27th and we are counting on her being here by Halloween. My doctor and I are going to have a heart to heart and I plan on letting him know she must be here before Oct. 31. I wanted to dress her up, but I figured she might be too little, so we found this sweet little outfit!!!
How precious is this???

What I am looking forward to: My doctor's appointment on Friday and our breastfeeding class tonight. I know it is a little early for the class, but the one we were originally signed up for got cancelled and tonight was the only other night we could make it.

I realize I didn't do a 28 week post last week. I did take a picture but I will not be sharing it because I was in my pj's and look awful.
However, some highlights I want to remember:
-I found out last week that I passed my sugar test the 2nd time...PTL!!!
-My blood pressure was still up but I've been checking it at Wal Mart and home and it has been down. Praying it is down on Friday.
-Reality really set in for me last week and I started stressing over everything.
-Week 28 has probably been the hardest week for me so far.
-I took Friday and Moday off and rested A LOT and I do feel better!

Nursery Preview

Once again the weekend is over already....
We didn't really do much at all this weekend! I still haven't been feeling that great, so I did a lot of laying around. Christian spent this afternoon working on Macey's nursery and got a lot accomplished!!!
Here is a picture of her crib with her bedding!!!
I do not have a mattress yet, so the bedding isn't all the way put together.
I love how the purple walls turned out witht he pink bedding. We decided against the stipes. We thought it made a little much.
One of my favorite parts is her Crystal Chandelier!!!!
It looks so cute in person!!!
Here is another picture of her bedding!!!
We obviously have more decorating to do, but I feel more comfortable having this much finished!!!!
