Our Babymoon in Branson, MO

Rusty and I spent the weekend in Branson, MO. It was our last weekend away without a baby in tow! It was really nice because we were able to stay at Big Cedar on Table Rock Lake. Friday, we arrived to some VERY chilly, blustery weather. Luckily, Saturday and Sunday were in the mid 70's and beautiful!

Saturday we drove to Eureka Springs, AR and walked around all the boutiques. We were able to have lunch outside but I ended up with a sun burn... bummer! We went back to the lodge and played some put-put, walked around the grounds and had some ice cream.

On Sunday, we had brunch (the most incredible food!), shopped around at the gift store and then headed to down town Branson to take in the Titanic museum. It was an absolutely fantastic weekend, the only problem, it was not long enough!

That is Table Rock Lake behind me

Rusty hit both of our balls... I was afraid I would fall through the fish

In side the fishes mouth...

Rusty is in there... you can only barely see him

He won both games that we played!

Neither one of us could sink a hole-in-one... it was a pretty hard course

Waiting on the shuttle to take us to breakfast... that is one really nice thing about the lodge, door-to-door service Our building that we stayed in

Having an outdoor lunch... it was great. Eureka Springs is beautiful. But, it is really hard to walk all the hills while pregnant. My feet still hurt and are still swollen... hopefully that goes away soon!!

Another belly pic...

Well... here I am at 34 weeks, 5 days. I feel like I look bigger in the picture than in person!!! It's crazy to think that there is only 5 weeks left! That means I will probably only take 1-2 more pictures, CRAZY!!!!

Yeah!!! We got the chair back

I really wish I had a before picture of this chair. Rusty has had this chair for the past 5-7 years. It originally belonged to his grandpa Roy and was probably purchased in the 50's if not sooner!! It was a pink, torn up, shabby looking chair that had pieces of fabric hanging off all over the place. Plus, the padding on the chair was pretty smashed. So, for the past 4 years, it just sat in a room, not being used and taking up space. Well, we had it reupholstered with this great velvet material in a neutral color. It is now functional and beautiful. Plus, when we are ready to move it out of the nursery, it can be incorporated in with the rest of our furniture. The greatest part, I know it has a lot of meaning to Rusty and his family and now it can be displayed and used.

The Nursery is Slowly Coming Together...

This morning I finished hanging all the art, letters and decorations on the walls. The room is almost done! I'm supposed to get the rocking recliner on Friday and I think I will put 1 or 2 pink throw rugs down to make the room 100% complete! I'm really happy with how it all came together.

This is the view from the door.
Her crib is to the left of the door. Babies R Us was out of the letter B when I picked up all her other letters. So, right now it looks like her name will be A Igayl!

The back of the room

Her dresser is on the right side of the room
I just have to decide where I want the chair to go. I guess once we get it back I can make the decision. I'm afraid it might look cramped in there but, I think if I put a rug down in front of it it will tie the room together.
