2. Get my free week pass and go to the gym!

5. Clean out the kids closet. I don't even know where to start with this project! I have stuff for my house in this closet, along with Josiah's Baby crap. -_-

I had my Baby Sprinkle yesterday! I wish I could tell you that it was perfect and that I have pictures but that would be a lie!!!! BOY when I tell you that a lot of work goes into throwing your own baby shower, I am not lying about that! I don't even know where to start. I didn't have it together, I forgot a lot of things, and I literally threw it up in two hours. baking, sprinkling, cutting, hanging, I mean EVERYTHING. 

I forgot my camera, but thankfully a good friend of mine brought hers & snapped a few pictures for me! AND HOPEFULLY she will get them to me ASAP, so I can share!!! 

 Keep up with me & Let me know your here!

Baby Bump Hump Date {31 weeks}

Baby is size of a Pineapple

 Man.... the list can go on and on... Last week I had these weird things happen. Like first I was at my friends house and almost blacked out. Then like two days later I had this thing happen to my eye, where I couldn't see out of it and it was . I think someone told me it was a sign of Preeclampsia but when I called the hotline, the doctor on call said I was fine. 

 NONE OF IT! I am peeing and cramping and just plain tired!!!!

I don't know... just EVERYTHING. But I do know when I get craving....I get what I want!!!

Maternity Clothes

 I haven't bought any more, but I did go to a yard sale and find this thing!!

Hopefully with this and the belly bands I have, I will be able to still wear all my old clothes!!!

Weight gain
I'm still gaining, but hopefully since I plan on getting this gym membership back, I maintain my weight and It'll just be baby weight I gain from now on!! I also plan on ONLY snacking on fruit and veggies and peanuts when I'm hungry.

I am going to get my membership back next week, after all the commotion over my baby shower ^_^

Stretch Marks

I have seen TWO new ones above my belly button :| 


Just the same as usual! Every time I want to go to sleep, she thinks it's time to wake up and move around.

Labor Signs
 Braxton Hicks still ....I hope!

 We found out HERE what we were having! & I'm still so excited about it!

Baby Names 
I have gotten real close to naming the baby girl Amillie. I just don't want to finalize it then... change my mind. Josiah is happy with that name. Joe is happy with the name, and so am I. It's just a middle name I'm concerned about now LOL (ANY SUGGESTIONS???) This could be a game (name) changer. 

Belly button in or out?

 Still in. 

Rings on or off?
 My rings are still on!

 I am going to get working on this next week after my baby sprinkle! 

Doc Appointment
I had a doctors appointment, everything went normal. I do have an ultrasound scheduled today at Fun Fetal Photos to see my baby girl live on the screen for about an hour!!! I can't wait! Pictures later this week.... unless you follow me on instagram or facebook ;)

Weekly Wishes ; Mani Monday

The Nectar Collective

I'm linking up with Melyssa from The Nectar Collective for the first time for Weekly Wishes!!! I have been basically doing this, but never found another link-up to join since 5forFIVE had 'gone out of business' so to speak lol. So here we go! ^_^

This week's wishes;

1. Start walking. I know it's the perfect weather for it now!!! (around the 70-80's here in Virginia) Another reason is because I CAN'T deal with being fat anymore. I know I'm pregnant, that's no excuse to why I'm gaining excessive weight. (my app reminds me everyday)

I actually want to start going back to the gym. Get this body ready for when I really go back. :P

2. Send out business cards/loyalty cards. Since starting my Thirty-One business I have been wanting business cards, and since I got a really good deal on Vista Print... I've been handing my cards out like crazy!! Hoping that someone will pay attention to them. On the back of them, I have a loyalty program. Basically if you buy 5 things, you get something FREE! Who does't love free.. 

3. Get prepared for my Baby Sprinkle!   Since I'm doing this by myself. Yes I realize I'm crazy, but I have had this planned for about 2 years, I couldn't let anyone one else take over! I actually went to the store(s) yesterday and got most of the things I needed. Just got to get ell the big things, cook the food and then set up!!!

4. Get more blog posts in order. I'm going to stop stressing so much, but I do still want to post daily. Or at least try to..

Mani Monday
I don't like the way she did it, but I went for a simple french tip this week! Maybe I'll have my nail polish rack done and then I'll do some designs for Halloween!! ^_^ 

Keep up with me & Let me know your here!

Last Sunday Social =(

It's that time, and unfortunately the last time for any one to link up to Sunday Social!!

Sunday Social

I should start my own link up !!!! Or does someone else plan to take over ??

This week's questions are;

How did you come up with your blog name? I actually googled it!! I never saw this name so I changed it up a little because I love everything with sprinkles! ( especially the colors ^_^ )

What is your favorite thing about blogging? I would have to say meeting new people, and reading other blogs.

What is one thing you have discovered because of blogging and now cant live without? DIY's. Point Blank Period!

Facebook or Twitter? and why? I love Facebook, but twitter gets more attention! I think facebook is easier to access.

If one celeb read your blog who would you want it to be? wow, this is a hard one! LOL Buttttt I'd have to say Beyonce! HAHAHA 

What is something you want people to know about your blog? That it's about a little bit of everything!

DIY Pumpkin Spice

It's that time for pumpkin everything! I found this on the internet and since I had planned on making and baking some things up this month, I thought I would give it a try!! 

I already had everything in my pantry so this was easy and cheap to make.  

What you'll need; 

1/4 cup ground cinnamon
2 Tablespoons ground ginger
2 Tablespoons ground nutmeg
1 1/2 Tablespoons ground cloves

Simply mix together and place in an air tight container. I just used an old bacon bits shaker that I had. Covering the label and making a new one =)

Now wasn't that simple?! I KNOW IT! And it taste perfect! I can't wait to make my first pumpkin cake!

This weekend I...In Pictures

I'm at work and I want to write, so I'm going to tell you a little about my weekend, in {mostly} PICTURES!

I worked every night this weekend, so it was basically limited to me hanging out in the mornings.. 

I hate working weekends because I can never get done the things I want to do. It's also when my family and friends are off... While I'm stuck going to work! :X

He loves his sister ^_^ 

My mom got her organizing station in the mail !! My stepdad loved it too! See how you can get this set- up HERE

We went to some yard sales. 

Then we stopped by the Fall Festival in Newport News Park. 

Scared of the horse LOL 

He loved the cars, and the pumpkin on it ! 

LOL That is Josiah for ya! 

Joe was trying to get Josiah in there, but he wouldn't...

But he wanted one of these! I said no, and daddy gave him one anyways. 

He danced to the music

I found the bows ^_^

Finally, My favorite part..... 

Then I had to rush into work, that day I forgot everything. If my head wasn't attached I may have lost that too. This is how I went to work. 

How was your weekend? Do you work on the weekends too, how do you manage?!!

Keep up with me & Let me know your here!
