Someone's on the way... like, really soon.

So, the wedding was nice but we have to move on.  Luckily, we were able to move on to something pretty big shortly after the wedding.  Yep, we're having a baby.  We conceived the little guy on our honeymoon - sorry if that was TMI - and found out a few weeks after we got back.  I always knew we would try as soon as we were married, I just never thought it would be so soon.  It has been amazing and difficult all at the same time.  Difficult, solely because of the sickness.  Thankfully I never threw-up, but there were a few weeks where I felt like I was going to every day.  And, well, now that I am almost done, it is constant difficult living.  I love that I can feel him, look forward to him, have him around with me...  I hate that I can't pick anything up, get off the couch, must use the bathroom every 15 minutes...  I cannot wait to roll over in bed without re-positioning 1,000 pillows.  I cannot wait to lay on my stomach.  Soon, it'll happen soon.  So, here's what has been happening to me:

This is 17 weeks:

This is 21 weeks:

This is 31 weeks:

This is 35 weeks:

I know, I'm gigantic.  Yes, there is only ONE baby in there.  Yes, I'm huge.  Oh well. 

Our baby is due March 18th and I cannot wait!  I have a feeling he will be early.  But, then again, I had a feeling he was a girl too so I can't really rely on my "feelings".  I hope to continue posting stuff that I'm doing.  I already added a bunch of stuff to the nursery and it is pretty much done, but I'll add pics and little crafty things I did.  Since I steal so much from the internet and DIY-ers, I feel it is important that I contribute too. 

Wedding Update...

I know, it's been forever.  What can I say?  It was a little hectic those last few days... and, well, so was the wedding... and then the honeymoon...  and then, well, I'll get to that piece later.  But the wedding was PERFECT and I cannot believe how perfectly everything "fit".  Here's some pics to see how things ended up:

Our vow/wedding books:  I bought them at Goodwill.  I put our vows in separate books, then the whole written out wedding in another for our friend who officiated our wedding. 

Here are books that I tied ribbon to.  The bow in the middle held the rings for the ring exchange.  I should have modeled to bill on how to open the bow and pull it out since he struggled with it during the ceremony.  Oh well, it was funny.

Juice boxes:  These were a hit!  Got some juice boxes for the ceremony.  Perfect and cute!

Lavender sachets:  Made the bag from on sale burlap-like fabric and got the lavender from the farmers market.  Great and cheap!

Centerpieces:  Mason jars from thrift stores, candles from Ikea.

Name Tag Table:  I created different heights with a salvaged old window and a shutter.  Those were propped up by mason jars.  The name tags were then all over the table, some higher than others.  Turned out perfect!

Cake Table:  A Martha Stewart idea of plates glued to candle holders - so awesome, cheap and pretty!

This was taken by one of the disposable cameras.  If I could do it again, more disposable cameras!  And they were PERFECT in black and white.  They turned out great, they were fun and it gave us pics that the photographer missed and of all the guests.  We could really see that the wedding was fun from their perspective.
