I had some money I needed to spend on Amazon, so the other day I ordered a Boppy pillow. I heard it's really useful and for some reason, this one pattern was $7 cheaper than the rest. I couldn't find anything wrong with it, so I went ahead and ordered it. I guess I should have paid more attention to the name.

Miss Cherry Boppy pillow.

I received the package yesterday and excitedly opened it. I pulled the packaging out and.... PINK? The pillow was light pink striped with pink cherries. It wouldn't be a big deal if I was having a girl and if I wasn't expecting it to be white with red cherries. Poor Jackson is just going to have to deal with his new pink pillow. Not exactly manly, but that's okay.

At least it was the pillow that turned out girly and not the baby--we would've had to rethink the nursery decoration, clothing selection, and name if Jackson turned out to be a GIRL.

Sunday Drive

Ryan and I went on a pretty, scenic autumn drive in the canyon today. The mountain air was cool and crisp and perfect for a 37 week pregnant lady. We brought our camera along in case we wanted to take pictures of the pretty view. Ryan made me get out and snapped a couple pictures of me.

Ryan wouldn't let me put any pictures of him on the blog. But here is a picture of our kitty in her new favorite bed.

A big box with lots of brown packing paper.

Nursery and Name Unveiling

When we found out our baby was a boy, I immediately starting brainstorming what to do with the nursery. It wasn't too hard to figure out I wanted to do a Curious George theme. Ryan loved Curious George as a kid. Here is what we came up with:

We even made the balloon mobile.

A couple weeks ago I made cinnamon rolls for the first time ever. They turned out pretty good. I was proud of myself.

Ryan was pretty happy too.

Pillow Project

Warning: This is me attempting to be crafty again.

If anyone knows me, I am artistically challenged. I can't draw, make cute things, or sew. But I can work a hot glue gun (with only a few burnt fingers).

I found this idea on my friend's blog and tried it out during General Conference. It's super easy!

The best part about it was the price:

Pillow: $1.62 at Target
Felt: $0.60 at Michael's
Total cost of pillow: $2.22

Not too shabby!
