The Tale of Benjamin Bunny

Hi there, happy new week!
Popping in real quick to 
share this adorable book that Pam from Virginia Retro sent me!
It almost looks like and reminds me of Peter Rabbit.
I should have gotten a couple pictures of the inside graphics, they are too adorable and sweet!! 

Thank you so much again Pam, for sending us this sweet book!! It was so nice and thoughtful of you!  We're excited to read it to our little boy very soon!! :) 

Wishing you a lovely day!!

Some Big News!

Happy new week!! 
(I heard it was national Star Wars Day....so "May the 4th be with you")
We had such a wonderful weekend here, sunny and warm!
 My mom got me this sweet angel lady, she's a yard stake.
 I just love her bright blue color and those pretty flowers painted on! 
 I got this "Bloom" sign,
that is now hanging on our porch for now. I just loved it! 

 Cute bird house with some silverware chimes....

 Jerry enjoying the weather! 

 Sent out this lovely "Spread Joy" stamped knife last week :) 

{ YAY.... 32 weeks in this picture!} 
*Tomorrow I'll be 34!! (Only 6 more weeks to go...not that I'm counting! lol)

Also sent out a candle and warmer tart order from my Etsy shop.

 I'm still doing a 20% OFF 'Spring Cleaning' Sale in the shop.
use the code:: spring20 
and enjoy yourself some good smells!!! Lol.

SOOOO onto the BIG news!! 
We are building a house!! 
We're so so very excited to be able to have this opportunity of building our own new home. We will be building out back at my parents' house. They gave us a few acres and its going to be perfect! The horses are already there, with the barn and pastures, it will be so nice! We are beyond excited!! We were hoping to be moving in really close to when the baby is due in the middle of June, but we'll probably have him here (in our house now) first. 

~ I feel like its killing me not setting up the nursery!! lol. But I will have plenty of time to do that once the house is there. I've gotten most of the nursery things already, so just waiting to set it all up. This past week we've been trying to organize and start packing up some things. And get some baby things ready for here too. 
~I've been trying to be good and not go thrifting and hunting for new treasures, as I have a lot to pack up and get ready! But I'm getting so excited....its almost garage sale season!! lol. 

Happy Monday!! 
Wishing you a lovely week!!

Baby Shower Pictures

Hi there sweet friends! 
Happy sweet week to you!! I promised I'd get some baby shower pictures together for you to see, so here they are!! (Sorry there are sooo many!) *You can click on the pictures to make them a bit larger to see too! :) ~Happy looking!
This sweet garland (above) that my mom and sister made, 
I'll be hanging in our little boy's room :)

The striped onesie garland, mom and I made together, thought it turned out so cute! 

 Pretty wrapped presents!!
{mom always adds such sweet and cute touches!} 

 Such a cute little place we had our shower at! 
Loved all the brick and pretty wooden tables and chairs.

We had a "guess" how many M&M's in the bottle, 
and a diaper raffle. (Anyone who brought a pack of diapers was entered to win a prize!)

~In the invitations I included a little tag, to bring a book instead of a card for our little one's library! Thought this was such a cute idea! 

We got some very sweet handmade gifts, my grandma made us a rag quilt and an adorable baby quilt. My Aunt crocheted the white blanket with blue trim (and not pictured she also crocheted another sweet baby blanket for us.) 

 The middle picture of us, we are holding a onesie that says "Keep Calm and Call Grandma" Lol!
And my sis is on the end making some punch :)

Opening some more gifts..... everything was soooo cute!! 
Top right ....he got some cowboy boots!!
The picture in the bottom right is with my mom. ^^

And below: top left is my sister and I ....we always take a silly one!
And the bottom right is me, my cousin, grandma, mom, and sister. 

For favors we bagged popcorn and put little tags on them that said "Ready to Pop" with a little pacifier charm. 

Luke and I were blown away with all of our wonderful gifts from everyone! We are just so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family, and we're so grateful for them. :) 
**A special thank you to my mom and sister that put this all together for us and baby Smith!! 

We've had our names for baby narrowed down for quite a while now to: Nash and Grant. As of over the weekend I think we will be naming him Grant Nathaniel Smith :) 

Thank you all for coming and visiting my little blog here and for looking at my pictures!! 
Wishing you a lovely day!!
