Fab Five #8

 #1. Nursery Sneak Peak
I'm mostly done with the nursery. I just have to add bedding, the glider, and maybe a few more decorative things. After her arrival or a little before we will move the bassinet, swing, and bouncer out. It's a little crowded with baby gear. Our stroller and car seat are also stuffed in there. If you are looking for crib sheets this week Target had them on sale for $9, and buy 2 get 1 free. They have tons of cute prints. My sister picked some up for the baby. Yellow and white chevron, hot pink with white polka dots, and a cute owl one that has the room colors with some brown in it. 

 #2. My big girls started school! Pre-K and 1st Grade. 
They love it! 
We are a few weeks in and it's so hard to get back into the routine. They are exhausted by the time they come home and you can tell by the attitude and my youngest falling asleep on the living room floor almost everyday around 3 or 4. Which makes bed time very frustrating. But they are happy while they are there at least. I didn't prepare them for waking early, the thought of starting to wake them up early a week before school and being in my third trimester just seemed crazy. 
Hopefully we will get used to it soon, you know right when I have the baby and end up being even more tired.

#3. Pencil skirts/ Maxi Skirts
I'm so ready to wear normal clothes again! I love this animal print skirt. There is some similar material at Hobby Lobby in knit and I'm thinking about making a knee length pencil skirt with it for after baby. I think it would be cute paired with any color solid top, what do you think? A little too crazy? I love animal print. I lived in my cheetah print forever 21 cardigan last winter. I also made my first purchase from Girl Charlee Fabric and have some black and white stripped knit I'm going to make into a maxi skirt. I also bought some chevron black and pink but they cut the fabic in half : ( I ordered two yards, and it came in two one yard cuts. Sad. I should have left a note in the note section. The fabric seems to be great quality though. I think I will try to make one of those nursing cover scarf's with the one yard cut.
I'm also thinking leggings and over sized tops will be perfect for after I have the baby. Where is your favorite place to buy leggings? I want good quality ones that are not see through.

Living with Punks: Tutorial: Land of Nod inspired Floor Cushion Would be great for Christmas gifts :)
#4. Floor Poof's
I'm loving these! I bought bias tape last year to make my girls one for Christmas (I still need to buy the fabric.) I didn't end up make them. I still think they would love them. I really want to make a cute one for the nursery too. Maybe I will get to it. I've been sewing more since my youngest in in pre-K, but it's only part time so my time is limited. And it's so hard to bend over, haha! Cutting fabric is way more difficult now. 

#5. 35 1/2 weeks and counting!!
I'm getting induced in less than a month! It's so crazy! I can't wait to be more comfortable. I'm waddling like crazy and baby has already dropped. I never dropped with my first two, they were induced also. My last was induced 9 days early and was 8.5 pounds. This baby will be induced 4 days early. I'm hoping she won't be huge. I'm currently craving Ice like Crazy! 
Braxton hicks contractions are still driving me nuts, and my feet hurt all the time. 
I can't wait to see what she will look like. My two older girls looked totally different at birth, so it will be interesting to see who she favors. I've gained 30 pounds so far, which has been less than my other pregnancies, so hopefully I won't gain 10 more this last month. But she looks healthy and everything is going well, besides the discomfort. Which is such a blessing!

I hope you've had a good week!
