The countdown has begun! 10 days until Anne Cambria's arrival. I still can't believe how fast 9 months has gone by, but I am so over being pregnant. People that say they "like" being pregnant are retarded. She can come any time she wants from now til December 9 and it wouldn't phase me one bit! We had a great time at the basketball game Friday night and then at the Egg Bowl Saturday (even though we didn't win, but we will not even get on that soap box). So, everything is put together, bags are packed (for the most part) and now we are just waiting........waiting.

Shutterfly Give Away

Have you heard the news?? Shutterfly is offering 50 free Christmas cards to bloggers! I love the shutterfly quality and options, and have used them before to create photo gifts for family. I made my mother and mother-in-law a photo calender for Christmas one year and they loved the variety that each month had. It is so easy to upload photos to Shutterfly and the quality is great! I have used Shutterfly for the past two years for our family Christmas Cards. The first year I could not decide between two different designs so I used both but last year I only chose one design. This year I am running in to the same problem choosing which design I like the best. They always have such cute designs and this year it's going to be SO hard to decide which ones to use. There are so many choices, and many different designs depending on personal preferences. Check it out at Shutterfly!

Waiting for the Queen

So, Johnny's parents have been calling Anne Cambria "Queen Anne" when they refer to her sometimes, and I find it hilarious. She will definitely be the Queen of our household once she makes her grand debut. But, while we are waiting for her arrival, we (as in Johnny) have been putting tons of stuff together. Since we are not setting up her nursery at the apartment, we are just doing the "basics" (which definitely consist of WAY more than I thought of). Johnny has been so great with everything. I ask him to put something together, and 10 minutes later he is in the floor with his drill going at it! Here are a few snap shots of him assembling the portable crib.

Football Season

This year OleMiss has been a complete let down, BUT there is always the Holy Land....I mean The Grove. No matter how bad we suck, The Grove is always a blast. I would rather be 0-12 and have The Grove, than be 12-0 without it. Everyone was talking about how the announcers on TV for the OleMiss/Auburn game kept talking about how amazing our tailgating experience and atmosphere was and how awesome The Grove is (and I am sure that was the subject of conversation because we were getting our tails stomped by Auburn). Anyways, even being pregnant this year, The Grove has been just as much fun as always. Here are a few pictures from the Vandy/OleMiss game and the Auburn/OleMiss game. I am already excited for basketball season to start. We are suppose to be decent.....but you know how that goes when you are an OleMiss fan. Never hold your breath ha! :) But one thing that is always good at those games are the hotdogs!! Its a guilty pleasure. ha!

Baby Shower #2

October 17 was my second baby shower. I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends to give me and Anne Cambria such a great baby shower. Natty graciously hosted the shower at her home (went is so pretty) and everything was perfect. I can't believe that I am 34 weeks pregnant and Anne Cambria will be here December 9! Wow! The last 9months have flown by. Its truly amazing how fast time flies. Here are some pictures from the shower.

More House Pictures

Here are some more pictures of the progress. The house is completely "blacked in" and they are starting to shingle and brick the house at the end of this week! YAY! Once that is done things should move a lot quicker. My Dad and his workers are doing an amazing job. I must say, we do have the best and one of the most experienced contractors in the MS. He has been in business for over 30years, and he is the best! If you are interested in a house or building a custom home or remodeling a current home, I highly recommend him. ;)

New House

Our house is coming along GREAT! We are so excited to watch it from start to finish. We are hoping to move in the middle of January, so we will be at the apartment with Anne Cambria for about 6 weeks. But considering she will be a newborn, she will not need too much space, so we should be fine. :) Here are some pictures of the progress of our future home!

So lately, I have been slacking on posting. I am in my 34th week of pregnancy and I am tired. Not as tired as I was the first 12weeks of pregnancy, but tired none the less. I think it has to do with the fact that I am on a neurology rotation at NMMC and I feel like I make 10 laps around the hospital daily. But, I only have 2 weeks left on this rotation and then I am out for Thanksgiving/Christmas break! I have 2 weeks between the end of rotation and Anne Cambria's arrival (unless she decides to come early). A lot has gone on the past few weeks. I had my second baby shower, we went to Memphis to the new, large BabiesRUs and finished out everything we didn't get at showers for Anne Cambria, and we had our usual Grove time last weekend. I am in the process of putting all the pictures on my computer, so I will have some up soon. And I am going to upload some pictures from the 3D/4D sonogram. :)
