Wondrous Wednesday

I bet you are wondering why this Wednesday is so "wondrous." Well, tomorrow is Veteran's Day, a holiday honoring military veterans. I think of the veterans that have fought for our freedom and the soldiers that are currently fighting overseas for their country occasionally, but not as often as I should. I'd like to take the time to thank these men and women for what they are doing, not only because I get the day off tomorrow, ;) but also because I truly am thankful to live in such a great country with so many brave and courageous people.

On another note, this weekend was the BABY SHOWER! I looked forward to it for so long and was so happy for the day to come on Sunday. Claire Maples, Becki Smith, Prezley Duncan, Peggy White, and Robin Warren all helped out with planning the shower. They are all AWESOME and did such a good job! So many people showed up and I was really glad to see everyone. I felt so blessed to have such caring and loving people in my life. I can't wait for Luella to get here so she can meet everyone that is so anxiously waiting for her arrival. I don't have any of the pictures right now (Mom developed them yesterday), but will be sure to update sometime before the end of the week. If you happen to be friends with Claire on Facebook, I'm sure she will have some, err, glamorous shots of me on there soon enough! ((( Can you hear the sarcasm? )))

The worst thing about the shower being last weekend is that I have almost all of the stuff for Ellie's room, so that makes me ten times more impatient for her to be born! I have spent the whole week in there organizing and getting things ready for when she gets here. Jimmy thinks I'm crazy because I sit in there folding laundry, organizing drawers, rearranging the room, touching up paint, etc. That's okay though, I just love being in there! I finally got the rugs for the room this week - they really tie things together and make things feel so much "homier." I originally had picked out a brown shag, but I opted out for a pink/green/brown/tan thick shag rug from Target. ----> love Target and LOVE the rug! Another new addition that is on its way to Ellie's house is Lenny the Lamb! Since I have started selling Scentsy, I have become addicted to their products. Lenny is a "Scentsy Buddy" and by adding a fragrance pack to his little body, he will smell like that fragrance. Of course, I picked the "Newborn Nursery" scent. (I bought a few bars in that scent, too!)

The reason I am waiting to post pictures of the nursery is because we had to order a new crib. The crib we were given from a friend was missing a part and when I went online to buy the part, we found out the crib was recalled. No big deal, I would just send in the part that was recalled and get a new one - - - well the part that had the problems was the one I needed! For some reason that makes no sense at all, the company wouldn't send me the new, non-recalled part without submitting the previous part used. Therefore, I am waiting on the crib that we ordered in place of the other one. With it, the room will be complete! Can't wait to share! Stay tuned . . .

Well I think I have rambled enough! ;) Until next time . . .
