My nephew, Joseph, celebrated his 3rd brithday this past weekend. The theme of the party this year was Cars- the Disney movie. So, in the spirit of the party theme- I made Jojo a cake. Not bad for my first try at making a professional looking birthday cake! And not to toot my own horn, but it tasted even better than it looked. Can't give you the recipe though. It's top secret. ;-)

So, here are a few ideas I have for decorating the baby's room now that the mural is done. I'm sure it seems like a shmorgasboard of everything, but hey- that's my style. I can't wait to put it all together!



A tropical fan to match the mural

A big, comfy chair and matching ottoman

A little red table cause red is cool and I think it goes with the teal on the walls

Some cute yellow check curtains to brighten up the room

A furry a tribute to Max since I cut him out of the mural. ;-)

8 weeks to go!

So, I'm 32 weeks! The end is drawing near...or should I say "the beginning..." The old Katie would be so nervous right now thinking about the big day, but I've been using this Hypnobabies Home Study Course and I have to admit- I think it's working. Hypnobabies is basically a set of hypnosis cd's that you listen to for 5 weeks starting around 28 weeks that is meant to teach you techniques and suggestions that help you stay relaxed and comfortable during your natural childbirth. The kit also comes with a daily affirmation cd that can be listened to everyday. That cd is awesome because it's basically just a bunch of mantra's to give you confidence and support to go au naturale'. I love it so far, but then again- I haven't given beith yet. Haha. I'm sure my birth story will prove the whole Hypnobabies system right or wrong. To be continued...

In other news, me and Sarah finally finished the mural in the baby's room! That's one thing I can check off the list!! Now, I just gotta decorate! That's it for now. Just thought I'd pop in for an update.
