…as in Tiffany Blues!!! This past week has been action-packed and lots of fun – attended a bridal shower, hung out with friends at the coolest movie theater, and just continuing to prepare for the babies! Here I am at Week 19!!! Soon, we will find out a whole lot of cool stuff on our babies – whether they are fraternal or identical, boy and boy, girl and girl, or boy and girl, and how big they are! No matter what, we always pray they are just growing healthy, beautifully, and strong and that the pregnancy continues to sail smoothly. In the past week, I’ve been feeling slightly more tired than usual. My back is also beginning to hurt and I’m feeling aches in places I didn’t know existed. But still no more morning sickness or other illnesses, no more cramps since the last one, and I’m just feeling really great over all. Aside from physically being well, I am just still on an emotional roller coaster, ecstactic about this journey we have before us and still in amazement that it is actually happening.
How AMAZING was this Tiffany’s-inspired bridal shower? Everything from the bride’s stunning outfit, to the creative decorations, to the ultimate candy bar was so “Tiffanied”-out! I was so grateful for the sour candies (sour belts, sour O’s, and sour string thingies) because sour/sweet candies are certainly one of my favorites right now. (Note to self: get more sour straws tonight!)
Also over the weekend, we hung out with friends and watched 42, the Jackie Robinson movie. It was a great movie. I read an article in the newspaper a few days prior that included an interview with Jackie Robinson’s wife. She’s 90 years old! She said her favorite part of the movie was how much they kissed. I thought that was extremely sweet. Here we are doing a mini-photoshoot at the Palladio. (Yes, I was still on a Tiffany blue kick, so that was the inspiration behind my outfit!) By the way, the Palladio has unlimited butter and seasonings for your popcorn. Where have we been this whole time?!?!
Not enough Tiffany blue for you? Check out our new living room set! We didn’t have the Tiffany blue theme in mind, but we certainly wanted something fresh, cool, and elegant. Hopefully we can add decoration and other things before we have no time (or money) when the kiddies are here!
Ever since we found out we are having twins, I have been completely engrossed in my Juggling Twins book that my lovely sister got me. It is the perfect resource at this time when I haven’t really found anything else in hardback or online that holds my hand and walks me through what to expect. I still enjoy reading my What to Expect When Your Expecting book, that book is more of a reference for specific subjects that I can just pick up as needed. In my Twins book, I am already highlighting and making notes everywhere so I can reread those parts again. Two things I learned and have taken very seriously: 1) eat more and slow down; and 2) get things done in my 2nd trimester.
Still helpful, but limited
This book is exactly what I need!
Thank you, Lani, for the awesome “mommy” collage! Check out her sweet post here. I keep hearing the phrase, “There’s something in the water.” It may possibly be true! Baby season is upon us =P
What’s the latest movie you watched in the theater?
Mommies and expectant mothers out there, what is a big thing you learned during your pregnancy and took very seriously?
